Emotional Detox

Emotional Detox

As featured in the March issue of Elle Magazine.

Have you ever felt that you are on a toxic treadmill, with the same ‘feelings‘ and scenarios recurring no matter what changes you think you are making?

As the longer days hint at the promise of Spring, it is the ideal time for us to evaluate our own lives and align with nature’s imminent renewal.

But change is about so much more than making unattainable or quickly forgotten resolutions.

First, you have to truly want to change. You have to feel it in every ounce of your being. Thinking is powerful but it is our feelings and emotions that are the scriptwriters and directors of our lives.

Look to your heart as the receptacle of your feelings and emotions. Is it brimming with peace, happiness, joy, gratitude, abundance and love? If it is, you are truly in touch with your natural inner self and are no doubt in a happy, balanced state.

But if you feel anger or fear, resentment, jealousy, frustration or even boredom in your heart, the chances are you have disconnected from the truth of who you are. And from this disconnection toxicity manifests in the form of problems and limitations instead of opportunities and abundance.

This March, I’m delighted to be running an Emotional Detox Retreat at the wonderful Chewton Glen in Hampshire. It’s an opportunity to take time out from life as we know it and give ourselves the breathing space to re-evaluate and rewrite our own life scripts. The aim? To help eliminate those toxic feelings for good.

Across four nights (Sunday 11 – Thursday 15 March 2012) we’ll enjoy meditation and relaxation, Nordic walking and yoga, breathing exercises, sound healing and daily ila treatments  as well as Emotional Freedom Technique. I’ll also be conducting daily one-to-one sessions with light therapy to help maximise both physical and emotional harmony.  If you’re keen to find out more, please visit Chewton Glen’s website www.chewtonglen.com or contact the ila team at info@ila-spa.com

Here’s to a happy, healthy and altogether less toxic year for us all.

Love and blessings,
