Learn to recognize distress:
If we want to relieve distress, we need to be able to recognize how we suffer.
Distress is defined as pain or suffering that affects the body or the mind. We may think that it is easy to recognize our distress but we are conditioned to ignore, avoid or power through this distress. We build our personal resources to better cope with the pain and suffering.
From a very young age, we learn a multitude of techniques to not let the distress control our lives, however it continues to influence our health below our level of awareness. In general, we are not encouraged to recognize the combination of thoughts, emotions and sensations that cause our suffering. Learning to recognize our distress is the necessary first step in relieving our physical and mental symptoms.
Learn to relieve distress:
Distress does not feel comfortable. We require an environment that feels safe. We require a tool that allows us to quickly resolve the feelings that arise. We require trust and support to connect with the discomfort.
Logosynthesis® provides a guided process which beautifully allows us to connect with our distress and then quickly identify, isolate and neutralize the frozen perceptual triggers (images, sounds, etc) which elicit the reaction. As the trigger is resolved, the body and mind stop responding with distressing thoughts, emotions and sensations.
The process is repeated as distress is identified. The work supports healing painful memories, limiting beliefs and notions about how life should be. Each time, frozen energy structures are neutralized to restore flow to allow us to enjoy life more fully – with purpose.
Relieve distress for better health:
We all have unique, individual experiences and cultural backgrounds which create our perceptual triggers.
We all learn to cope with, to ignore and to avoid the distress which results from these triggers.
We all benefit when we learn to resolve these perceptual triggers.
By learning one technique, we are able to relieve distress – regardless of how the symptoms appear in the body or mind. Along the way, we begin to recognize that things that we were not able to talk about no longer have the same hold on us. We don’t need to wait for someone else to fix our issues although we benefit from support to learn the method, guide the work and share the learnings.
The key is to start now to experience the technique – not only to resolve your own distress but to better understand how those who struggle with their suffering can benefit.
