SOMATIC WORK & EMBODIMENT

LIBERATING – ALIGNING – RELEASING

Somatic therapy is like a tune-up for the body and mind, helping to release and process emotions that might be hanging out in the nooks and crannies of our muscles.

It’s fascinating how emotions can take up residence in our bodies, affecting everything from our posture to our physical well-being. The idea that a good cry or a hearty scream can be part of the healing process is pretty powerful. Have you ever tried somatic therapy or something similar?

Great for: Chronic Pain, Stress & Anxiety, Processing and Releasing Trauma, Improving Body Awareness, Emotional Regulation, Mind-Body Integration

What happens in a somatic or embodiment class?

A somatic or embodiment class can occur in the form of yoga,
breathwork, guided meditation, dance, stretch, and much more. 

The format is less important as there are so many ways to connect with your body and release stored emotions. The important part is the intention and openness you have to the process. You’ll find over time which types of somatic classes you and your body prefer as every body is different. 

Why would you attend a Somatic or embodiment class?

Since there are so many benefits for somatic or embodiment work, there are many reason why you would attend a class.

Here are a few of our favorites!

Chronic Pain: As you mentioned, a significant chunk of chronic pain is tied to emotions, and somatic therapy can be a great way to alleviate this pain by releasing those emotions.

Stress and Anxiety: Our bodies often hold onto stress, creating tension. Somatic therapy helps release this tension, promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety.

Trauma: For those who have experienced trauma, somatic therapy can be a gentle way to process and release stored emotions without necessarily having to verbalize everything.

Improving Body Awareness: It’s like getting to know your body on a deeper level. Somatic therapy can enhance your awareness of bodily sensations and help you understand the mind-body connection.

Emotional Regulation: Learning to connect with and express emotions through the body can contribute to better emotional regulation.

Mind-Body Integration: Somatic therapy is all about bridging the gap between the physical and emotional aspects of our experiences, fostering a more holistic sense of well-being.

How often should you attend a Somatic or embodiment class?

The frequency of somatic therapy sessions can vary depending on individual needs, goals, and the nature of the issues being addressed.

Here are some general considerations:

Intensive Phase: Initially, especially when addressing specific issues like chronic pain or trauma, more frequent sessions may be recommended. This could be weekly or even multiple times per week.

Transition to Maintenance: As progress is made and the individual starts to feel more grounded and integrated, the frequency of sessions might decrease. This could mean moving to bi-weekly or monthly sessions.

Individual Preferences: Some individuals may prefer or benefit from regular ongoing sessions as a form of self-care and maintenance, even if they’re not actively addressing a specific issue.

As-Needed Basis: For others, somatic therapy might be something they return to as needed, for tune-ups or when facing new challenges.

Integration with Other Therapies: The frequency may also depend on whether somatic therapy is used as a standalone approach or integrated with other therapeutic modalities.

Ultimately, it’s a personal decision that can be made collaboratively with the therapist. They can help tailor the frequency based on your goals, progress, and what feels right for you. Have you been considering somatic therapy for yourself?

RELEASE – HEAL – GROW

We often hear that the leading cause of our problems is within ourselves. But so is the solution.

It may seem far-fetched, but the power to solve all of our physical and emotional issues, whether it’s health, relationships, career, finances, self-esteem, or something else, is in our hands.

Metaphysical counseling helps us uncover the root of our suffering and address it accordingly. Let’s find out how!

Great for: Transitions, getting to the next level, breaking free of limiting beliefs or blockages, empowering one to believe in themselves, having accountability through your goals

what is metaphysics

Metaphysics is the most abstract branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of existence. In Greek, the word metaphysics means “after the things of nature”.

Metaphysics examines the very nature of reality. It offers explanations for phenomena that cannot be explained by “natural” science or that are “beyond the physical”.

This science studies the individual as a whole, as a physical and spiritual being.

Certain types of chakra healing and other holistic, spiritual healing practices, personal development, and even business coaching are based on metaphysics. They typically include working on physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one’s being to resolve issues that person is facing.

The fundamental law of metaphysics is that every action or decision causes a reaction or an effect. Everything that happens to us (positive or negative) results from past actions or decisions in this lifetime or before the present life.

Similarly, everything we do now will have an effect on our life in the future. This law is better known as karma (action).

It is also believed that we must resolve our life’s issues in this lifetime.

What is metaphysical counseling?

Metaphysical counseling is based on the principle that everyone is sent by the Soul (higher self) to grow at all levels of their being through their life experiences and the lessons they learn in life.

Sometimes referred to as spiritual or transpersonal counseling, it represents a whole person approach – body, mind, and spirit. This type of counseling helps us better understand our life experiences by explaining aspects that our senses cannot perceive.

To put it simply, metaphysical counseling is a form of therapy that empowers us to empower ourselves.

There are many ways metaphysical counseling can take place. This will depend on the practitioner you choose, the kind of spirituality they practice, and the specific issues you may be looking to address.

Some counselors will advise you on the use of crystals for healing, while others will stress the importance of prayer.

This is why it is essential to find a counselor whose beliefs align with yours. Otherwise, your counseling might not have the desired effect.

What can metaphysical counseling help us with?

Metaphysical counseling is a type of holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. This psycho-spiritual approach helps people live a more authentic life by making conscious choices.

It is a self-empowering therapy that gives us the tools to identify and address the imbalances in our belief system that cause conflict and prevent us from achieving success and happiness. These beliefs are so subconscious that we aren’t always aware of them.

With the help of a therapist, people can discover the fundamental causes of their suffering and reach a solution through self-discovery.

It is all about learning to utilize our own self-healing power to reinstate harmony.

This can apply on multiple levels – physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Good metaphysical counseling will address all of those.

What does a metaphysical counselor do?

A metaphysical counselor is capable of healing not only the human mind but the body as well. They can help with various mental issues, including depression, anxiety, and loneliness, or any physical illness, by offering guidance and support to their clients.

A metaphysical counselor can help us navigate our way to health, success, strength, or anything else we desire. They also help clients understand their spiritual nature in this lifetime and beyond.

Each counselor will have their own approach; some will focus on the metaphysical properties of the things around you and how to use those to your benefit, while others will prefer working on your own inner world.

We are all exposed to various positive and negative influences that shape our daily actions, thoughts, and reality. Negative impacts lead to issues like anxiety, negativity, and close-mindedness.

Metaphysical counseling aims to free people from these negative influences and their effects.

Gaining a better understanding of ourselves and our connection to the physical and spiritual world surrounding us with the help of a metaphysical counselor gives us the ability to recognize these harmful influences and build a defense mechanism.

The root of these problems lies deeper than the physical, mental, or emotional sphere. To find a solution, we must target the source. And that lies at the deepest and wisest level of our being – the level of the Soul. Many life situations can only be addressed through the metaphysical laws, and the soul factor is always present. Metaphysical counselors teach us numerous powerful techniques and spiritual principles we can utilize to find the greater good in any challenging situation.

They give us the tools to find a solution to our life issues without a struggle, using less energy in the process.

What to expect from your first metaphysical counseling session

During the first session, the client answers a series of questions regarding their life and the issues that are troubling them.

The counselor listens attentively to understand not only the surface issue but also the stressful beliefs and patterns that are causing the problem.

Further steps depend on the specific type of counseling and the counselor you choose. But after a counseling session, the goal is for clients to experience a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

Not a one-size-fits-all approach

Metaphysics is a versatile form of therapy, so it can be adjusted to the client’s changing needs as the sessions develop.

Therapists use a variety of counseling skills and techniques. They usually determine which method is the most suitable, depending on the client’s condition at that moment.

For example, you may focus on meditation to prepare yourself for success but turn to more conversation-based therapy to deal with anxiety.

As you and your counselor work together, you will find what works best for you personally. This is one of the significant benefits of metaphysical approaches – they are highly flexible.

Metaphysics can be applied to almost any condition and is incredibly helpful with issues regarding:

mental health
challenges in the workplace
relationship issues
dealing with stress and anxiety
understanding emotional reactions
unlocking habitual patterns
