The Guilt Game

What is guilt? We’ve all felt it. We all know how it makes us feel. It is one of the worst feelings and can leave you sleepless and sad. Maybe you did something and are too embarrassed to admit it. Maybe you finally realized something and feel like you need to right a wrong. Maybe you feel undeserving and when you finally achieve a goal or receive that item, you no longer feel good, but rather guilty.

Guilt is a funny thing. In a cognitive perspective, guilt is the thought that you have done harm unto someone else. Some people feel this emotion many times throughout the day; some people feel this emotion only once in a while. Researchers and psychologists believe that guilt and the amount of guilt you feel is determined on how you were raised and how you played as a child.

Guilt can be irrational and cause extra anxiety. It can make a situation seem more severe than it really was or it can make you question what actually happened. Sometimes people will experience guilt when they come into a large amount of money. Maybe they got a new job and they are paid very well or someone passed away and they inherited money. They may feel like they are undeserving of this money and they are afraid to have it or use it. This can cause extra distress on that person’s life and it can lead to a domino effect of many other problems.

Some people may also feel this way when it comes to love. That person may have been in a poor relationship in the past and believes that they only deserve a partner who will treat them worse than they treat their partner because they feel too much guilt. They feel like they are a burden so they need to be treated like one.

Guilt can form from a lack of confidence or from a lack of deservingness. These emotions could have been formed from situations in the past, it could have been how someone was raised or it could be from depression or anxiety.

So how do we fix it? Someone who experiences an exponential amount of guilt should practice positive affirmations. For example:

“I am deserving of my wealth/life/job/health.”

“Love is attracted to me because I express love.”

“I am happy and deserving.”

“I approve of myself and my surroundings.”

These are just a few examples of what you can tell yourself to boost your confidence and change the way you think. Through sound healing and positive affirmations, someone who experiences a lot of guilt will see improvements and may even notice their outlook change on situations. Nobody has to suffer through guilt. If you or someone you know is experiencing debilitating guilt or an abnormal amount of guilt, suggest sound healing and positive affirmations.

Addictions

Addictions can plague many people’s lives and have detrimental effects on their health and well-being. Their families suffer, their careers suffer and their mind suffers. Addictions can be caused from a variety of reasons. From getting into the wrong crowd at a young age to coping with depression or other mental illnesses. It’s important to figure out the root cause of this addiction so that person can stop relying on things to fill the void in their life.

Whether the addiction is heroin or alcohol, to cigarettes or diet coke. It’s easy to form that pattern and create a bigger problem than the one at hand. By allowing that addiction to come into your life you are escaping from the internal problem and making it an external one. Once the addiction is in place, you may have no control over your thoughts or feelings and your body forms a dependency.

Most people with addictions don’t even realize they have this addiction and believe it is just a habit that they can stop at any time. They may come to the realization that if they do try to stop it is nearly impossible due to the different chemicals that have effected their brain functioning. This can lead to a spiraling effect where they have no control on whether they can stop it or not. However, some people may not want to stop their addiction at all and have realizations they need to when it may become too late.

Luckily for people with addictions, Holistic Sound Healing exists. By digging into your subconscious and pulling out what is truly bothering you, we are able to extract that void and that addiction.

“After 32 years of this nasty habit, I was ready for another attempt to quit smoking. I was going to try Chantix because I had some results the last time I had done it 4 years prior. (I quit for almost 3 weeks) The dreams I would have when I started taking the product were insanely crazy. I had a list of reasons on why I needed to quit. A friend told me about sound therapy and that it would be the absolute best way to do it without any side effects. The cost of this treatment would add up to the cost of the doctor’s visit alone so I tried this treatment. It was totally painless and very relaxing.  I kicked the habit! I’ve been smoke free for 2 ½ years now without any side effects or irritability issues at all. You will be amazed by the results!”

Guilt

If you are experiencing guilt in your life chances are you went through something traumatic or life changing. Even if you didn’t go through something traumatic you are holding onto a deep rooted emotion that you are not able to rid yourself of. This could be from disobeying your mother as a teenager and building resent, or cheating on a significant other. Guilt doesn’t even have to be present in such dramatic ways. You could feel guilty for cheating yourself of things you deserve. If you look inwardly, guilt can sometimes be present as a symptom of depression. You are lacking the confidence you need to feel worthy enough of certain situations and encounters and you may feel guilty about that. If someone spends money on you or you feel you are undeserving of being treated a certain way, you may be experiencing a lack of self worth which can lead to depressing thoughts.

But fear no more; you no longer have to be neither guilty nor depressed. Through Holistic Sound Healing we are able to distinguish what memories and thoughts are linked to your deep-rooted guilt and give you a more positive outlook on situations and even life! Therapy can suppress your guilt and make it easier to deal with, but Holistic Sound Healing will give you an opportunity to break free from those emotions. But in the mean time it is important to tell yourself different things to assist you in your process of not feeling guilty. In order to do this you can tell yourself these affirmations.

“I am the master of my own feelings and I will learn from my mistakes. Nobody is perfect and I will learn and grow.”

“I am worthy of amazing experiences and opportunities. I will accept what comes into my life with gratitude and open arms.”

“I am perfect just the way I am. I believe in myself and the people around me.”

“Today is the best day to let go of the past. I am worthy of a brighter day. I will not hurt the people in my life by past mistakes. I will show them I am a better person with each and every day.”

These are some affirmations that can assist your brain into not feeling guilt any longer. Your thoughts are what ultimately control what you feel. Do you have the power to control your guilt?

“That Gut Feeling”

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Trust your gut” or “I just had a gut feeling.” Well these phrases are becoming a lot more reputable. According to new research, our Gut Flora (bacteria, fungi and viruses) living in our gut can affect our mental health. There is said to be about six pounds of these flora living in our bodies. An imbalance of these can cause a variation of disorders including anxiety and depression.

Dr. Emeran Mayer from the University of California, Los Angeles believes that the micro flora living in children’s guts influence the developing structures in their brains as they grow up. These structures in their brains then influences their feelings and emotions along with mental health later throughout their life. Through a series of tests that take samples of gut bacteria and correlating them to MRI scans of the brain, there is a strong link to a specific amount/type of bacteria to different disorders.

Infants are exposed to their first gut bacteria from their mothers; however, throughout their early childhood antibiotics, diet, stress or even alcohol consumption may disrupt the bacteria.

So how does the bacteria in our gut communicate with our brains? It communicates directly via the Vagus Nerve that connects them. Research shows that there are more neurons wrapped around the gut than there are in the spinal cord. The bacterium is also able to produce neurochemicals that play a role in how we produce hormones and regulate our moods. Some of these mood hormones include serotonin, dopamine and gamma-amino butyric acid-which play a large role in anxiety and depression.

So your next question is, how do we fix the problem? It’s a smart idea to take probiotics to help foster the good bacteria found in your stomach. It is also a good idea to eat healthy and exercise to increase a healthy digestive system. But another great way is to use Holistic Sound Healing. Sound healing will help tell your body that it does not need to be anxious. By releasing emotions of anxiety and/or depression, it will be easier for your body to heal.

I have personal experience in problems with my stomach correlating to my anxiety. A few years ago I became very ill after a bad bout of food poisoning. My stomach was nowhere near where it needed to be in order to be healthy. I wasn’t able to keep any food in my system long enough to get the proper nutrition and I was unable to gain weight; I was only losing weight. I noticed that when my stomach would act up, so would my anxiety. It took about two years until my stomach started to finally kick the bad bacteria and produce more of the good bacteria. Sound Healing helped subside my anxiety and allow me to not worry about my stomach problems. This was a huge help because eventually my anxiety had created worse stomach problems. It is a vicious cycle that needs to be broken. This is why I encourage Sound Healing to help with stomach problems linked with anxiety and depression. Also, talk to your doctor about a probiotic that works well for you. For more information about gut bacteria being linked to your emotions, follow the link below.
