Illness as a Purge & an Emotional Journey.

A client of mine has been battling with some short term illness for the last week.

I asked her to define her emotional process. She described her flu like symptoms as being a "Purge"

We discussed how she may be going through an emotional cleansing, letting things go. We clarified it some more and saw the opportunity to deliberately let go of emotional baggage.

We also saw it was an opportunity to celebrate the end of an era and the beginning of the new.

The next morning I got an email saying she felt a lot better - more energy and a great state of mind.

Later in the day, she had looked up the definition of "Purge" and sent it to me:

"...to make pure or clean: to clear from accusation."

Never underestimate the emotional journey behind any illness you may be experiencing!
