Did you ever just want to cry? You ever feel the urge in you for no reason a longing to shed some tears? Tears that have been with you for a long time. It is kind of a funny feeling to want to cry but feel unable. This happens when emotions build up, go unexpressed and become pressurized. When we honor this feeling to shed tears it has the power to a profound place of relief.
Grief, sadness, longing are emotions our society doesn’t properly acknowledge. They don’t fit the mechanized way our culture operates, frankly they are disruptive to the status quo. Imagine sitting at your desk balling like a child? What would your boss think? How would you feel? It is a raw place to be and when we feel raw like that we want comfort, protection, sanctuary.
Instead of acknowledging this place we forge ahead with Puritanical grit. Thank god for flower essences!
