The Dark Side of Your Emotional Needs: Attention

Part one: How you can be manipulated through your need for attention

by Mark Tyrrell / Uncommon Knowledge

I heard a story once.

Long before mobile phones were a thing, a group of people were driving through a desert in punishing heat. As terrible luck would have it, their vehicle broke down, right there in the baking wilderness.

They were stranded for days and, drop by drop, their water supplies ran out.

Slowly, they began to die of dehydration.

One man eventually become so deliriously thirsty that he succumbed. He drank engine fuel from their vehicle. He drank so much that he died.

Not half an hour later the others, weak and dehydrated beyond belief, were rescued and given fresh water.

The man who drank engine fuel had a need. A real, undeniable need. He felt he was meeting it somehow, but the effects were deadly.

True or not, this tale is a perfect analogy for how emotional needs can make us just as vulnerable and drive us to just-as-crazy actions. And that’s what this series is all about.

Healing Core Wounds Webinar

Most suffering from narcissistic abuse stems from our core wounds.  In fact it is our core wounding that unconsciously attracts the wounder.

Although narcissistic abuse is very painful, the depth of that pain comes from our cellular memories of feeling worthless, not enough, not good enough, shameful, stupid, ugly and a number of other painful beliefs that are established in childhood.

As we identify these core beliefs, we can work to heal them; establishing a much more empowered relationship with ourselves and others.

This class is designed to identify your core wounds and begin the process of healing them.  The result is increasing your energetic vibration so you will attract more empowering relationships, work environments and social environments.

In this class each individual will have the opportunity to receive support in identifying his/her core wounds and take the necessary action to heal them.  We will also do group hypnotherapy sessions to help the subconscious mind to change negative core beliefs to positive ones.  There will be a support forum for the group, allowing participants to interact with and support each other in this healing process.  The video’s for this class will be available as recordings for class participants.

Over Coming Depression

When you are depressed, life loses its luster.  There is very little life force energy available to get through the day.  You may not sleep well, or you may sleep too much.  You may have a difficult time functioning at home and at work.

Depression is a repression, or suppression of one’s life force energy and the emotions that are not being properly dealt with.  We often tell ourselves we shouldn’t be feeling what we are feeling and deny, suppress or medicate our emotions.  This causes a suppression of your life force energy.

You may or may not know what you are depressed about.  Knowing what you are depressed about doesn’t necessarily help to heal the depression.

What really helps heal depression is to deal with the underlying emotions that you are likely avoiding, and perhaps, looking for the spiritual guidance trying to come through the darkness. Continue reading Over Coming Depression

Finding Balance in Body, Mind and Spirit

Self love is really about taking care of yourself on all levels, body, mind and spirit. If you put all your attention in one area and not consider the other important area’s of your life you will experience a lack of balance.

People often come to me out of a state of emotional pain and chaos. The emotional part of their life is needing a lot of attention. This often happens when we ignore our emotions for too long. We develop sophisticated methods of suppressing our emotions so we don’t feel pain or discomfort and when our usual methods of suppression don’t work anymore we begin to experience the pain and discomfort we have long been running from.

When we ignore our body, we also experience physical issues such as gaining too much weight, lack of energy and illness. Our bodies need care on a daily basis and yet so many people put more effort in maintaining their vehicles than their own bodies. When we suffer the ill effects of neglecting our body, we don’t feel good on all levels.

The mental aspect is the part of us that thinks, analyzes, evaluates, solves problems and makes decisions. It is also the part of us that gets stuck in negative thought or stinking thinking. We need to practice being “mindful” of our thoughts. Negative thinking can lead to negative feeling and deep emotional pain. When you think the thought “I am not good enough,” you will not “feel” good. So practice minding the mind, watch your thoughts and beliefs. There is truth to the saying “what you think about comes about.” We can choose where to put our mind, but it may involve practice and conditioning.
