Sophrology is helps people with surgery nerves, as well as phobias. Here is a little example of one client who has dental phobia.
2016 has been a very interesting year for America. Living in Arizona since 2012, I feel overall Americans don’t really exercise their right to freedom of speech. I do know many who definitely don’t hold back! I hope not to offend any Americans by writing this, as I am generalizing, but, I know in their hearts, they just don’t want to offend anyone. By suppressing their real thoughts and feelings however, they hold themselves back from being truly free. I am speaking as an Irish person who knows how Europeans express themselves freely without fear of doing so.
The 2016 Presidential elections gave the American public the chance to speak freely. It helped release a lot of frustrations and anger. Anger needs to be released and more importantly managed without causing harm to anyone. I have always wanted to know people’s personal politics. It has always fascinated me. I like to see all sides to the coin. I am from Ireland where we all love a good heated discussion, from the family home to the pub! There needs to be an outlet where we can all express ourselves without fear or violence or else we will feel oppression. Is this suppressed anger why America has so many violent cases of gunfire?
The election is over and the results are in. Now is the time to manage our frustrations, anger and disappointments – as life continues. So how to do this: go to the gym and exercise?; - go to the pub? - have fun with friends! - practice yoga, mindfulness, meditation or all three together using sophrology?
Sophrology helps people cope with anxiety, anger, fear and stress. It helps you to focus on the positives in life and walk away from the negatives. With practice it becomes part of your sub consciousness. We all need to work on ourselves to have inner peace.
Everyone wins. Inner peace in one person spreads and affects everyone. So does the opposite. Which do you prefer to spread?
The joy of screaming is something we do as kids. Think about it, if we adults were to scream as carefree, the neighbors would have thought something was going on! Maybe that is why roller coasters were created? Do you remember the last time you screamed for joy, like the kids running through the icy sprinklers? It could be that time you did jump in an icy pool, or that time screaming at the top of your voice at the movies, or even a ride on a motorbike. Whatever the memory, remember the happy sensations you experienced. Now expand upon them. Those sensations are still within you and you can tap into them any time you wish to. When we expand upon joyful memories, by just remembering them, we integrate positivity.
This is conscious harmony, which is the essence of Sophrology.
