Vertigo, Spaced Out, or Lethargic? —The Toxic Effects of Stuck Emotion
Mindbody Wellness Clarity Tips
Dear Awesome Woman,
Many of us don’t realize that when we refuse to get honest with ourselves and get in touch with our emotions that we are putting our health at risk, G-d forbid.
I know it’s uncomfortable to admit that we’re angry, sad, or ashamed about a situation, but when we ignore or suppress the energy of the emotion, it does a whopper on our Mindbody connection and therefore health.
A few years ago, I was at a business conference in Colorado and had the opportunity to meet many wonderful women. When the conference ended, I went to the airport and winded up running into one of the women. Since our departure gates were near each other, we sat together and talked. She knew I was a somatic healer/mindbody coach and opened up to me about some uncomfortable physical symptoms she had been having for a while. She hadn’t even been sure that she would be well enough to come to the conference, but she took the risk.
Sitting there, she opened up to me about feeling spaced out and a bit lost for the past few months. These were disturbing sensations that she had never experienced before. When I asked her if there had been any event near the time that she started feeling this way, she said, “no.” She was quite confident with that “no”, so I just dropped the point and she changed the subject. I had a coach-hunch that there had been something but let it be.
A few minutes went by as we made light talk about the conference and then suddenly, she interrupted the flow of the conversation by mentioning that she had actually experienced a disappointing business deal a few months ago. I could see the wheels of her mind churning as she started to make a connection to the trauma of that event and the new spaciness that she had been experiencing ever since.
I’m using the word trauma here to describe a small event, but it was a large disappointment and a bit of a shocker. Things didn’t turn out as she had hoped and expected.
And it had affected her. More importantly, it affected her Mindbody connection. I told her that our minds have the tendency to try to ignore the discomfort of feeling angry, annoyed, sad, and scared. But that her body was feeling all those emotions. Emotions are “energy in motion” and just like energy outside of us can’t be ignored neither can the energy inside of us.
Is there anything that you’re ignoring in your life and have developed weird symptoms? Do you have vertigo, tics of the eyes, anxiety, sciatica, back pain, spaciness?
There are somatic ways to release stress, settle your nervous system, and process your emotions and trauma regarding difficult events. Life usually does not work out as planned and your mindbody system needs to be integrated as much as possible for you to have optimal wellness.
Health is a balance of mind, emotions, body, and soul. Somatic healing touches all these parts and leads to clarity, wellbeing, and direction.

Sharing a few testimonials from clients whose lives have been transformed and you can check out more @ Client Love:
“I was completely devastated as the result of a miscarriage when a friend referred me to Miriam. Her approach to healing was straightforward, simple and easy. With her help, and in just a few weeks, my mind and body were set at ease. She is truly wonderful and I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone who is struggling.” – F.C., Florida
“Miriam was recommended to me and when I came to her, I was experiencing an acute depression accompanied by severe insomnia. Upon meeting me on our first call, she sensed the urgency of my situation and offered to begin our work immediately. She made the time to speak to me three times that first week, and because of our intensive work, I found relief and began to sleep again. Her intuitive ability to pinpoint mind-body pressure points and release the painful symptoms was life-changing for me. She has given me the tools I need to identify where my emotions are affecting my body and how to work through them so they don’t get stuck (and eventually wreak havoc). This has not only helped me immensely, but my whole family benefits from our work as well.” -J.H., Boston, MA
