I asked my counselor, “Why are so many counselors in the area doing such mediocre work with people?” She paused, a seasoned psychotherapist of over 35 years, “Because they haven’t done their own inner work.”
In psychospiritual healing and counseling, there’s a recognition that perhaps depression, anxiety and the like aren’t the result of a “chemical imbalance” or some sort of biological deficiency in the brain.
Instead, psychological changes, mental health symptoms, and emotional crises can be a catalyst for growth and transformation, leading to positive life changes and expanded states of consciousness.
This is the crux of psychospiritual transformation.
In the same way that crying provides an outlet for our softer emotions to be felt and expressed, it is crucially important that we create healthy, clean ways to allow some of the harder emotions to move through us as well. No matter what method of releasing pent up anger and aggression seems most accessible to you, it is crucial for you to find a pathway to acknowledge, access and release all of the “feels” that are wanting to be touched inside of you.
