Anger ate my sleep

Ruminating about a situation with which I am frustrated, I was consumed with anger all night and couldn’t get to sleep at all.  I tried hypnosis, brainwave entrainment, Brad Yate’s guided imageries, several soul showers.  Nothing seemed to work.  I’d finished and jump right back into my issue.

Finally at 6 or 7 in the morning, I tried tapping and that seemed to dissipate things enough for me to get 3 or 4 hours sleep until the phone rang.

I felt a bit better today.  Must have been one of Brad’s healing dreams that made me stronger.

Just admitting that I slipped and fell.  I had a hard time getting myself back together, but through trying several strategies, I was eventually able to stand up.  I guess these practices work only as far as we will allow them to.


About metaminder

A few years ago, I graduated with a Masters degree in Spiritual Nurture from an accredited graduate school. However, I found myself disagreeing with much of the traditional Christian doctrine that I had learned. So I packed up my faith and put it away to examine another day. Recently, I've found myself reconnecting to spirit and discovering alternative practices that guide my life in a positive direction and help me function more fully. I'd like to share my journey of growth and renewal with you as I explore these practices in hopes that you may find them helpful as well. Let me add that I have tried and was even trained in traditional western psychotherapy. While it has it's benefits, it was not enough for me. I found that as a client, talking about the same issues week after week kept me stuck in those issues. When I was being trained, I longed to offer something more to a client than merely handing them the preverbial tissue every so often. I longed to offer touch or teach them coping skills. It hasn't been until the last couple of years where I have learned new techniques such as Reiki, hypnosis, EFT and others. These are techniques that have been of help to me. This is my journey with alternative methods of self-nurture and growth. Your mileage may vary. I invite you to take responsibility for your own well being as you read this blog.
