#61 Re-Sensitising Our Emotions & The Body As A Guesthouse ~ w/ Mathilda Littlehales
Mathilda Littlehales is a holistic space holder and training in psychotherapy and breathwork. Throughout her upbringing, she already familiarised herself with the importance of the connection between body, mind & soul. The periods in her life in which she experienced anxiety and depression made her interests shift from solely nutrition and physical wellness to a focus on mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing – both in her own personal life and professionally.
In this episode, Mathilda shares her thoughts on feeling the darker emotions. She compares it beautifully to the butterfly’s journey, in which darkness is part of the metamorphosis. Darker (or more negative) emotions exist within each of us and we need to allow them to allow change in our lives. Mathilda vouches for a re-sensitising of our emotions – learning how to connect with the body to fully feel through our emotions.
She shares the poem ‘The Guesthouse’ by Rumi as an example of how we can navigate our feelings and emotions through the body. We also touch on inner child work and how this is inextricably linked to feeling all of our feelings. Mathilda shares a few practices to connect to our inner child and heal any wounds that may arise in the process.
We also touch on the spiritual and wellness industry and what spirituality means to us. Tools can be great but the true divination happens within, wouldn’t you agree? Mathilda shares how she finds the magic in the mundane, immerses herself in nature and connects to unconditional love for herself and for others to truly feel into spirituality.
