As I continue this theme of intuition, I dive more deeply into mind-body health and bring you additional healing modalities can be used to release stuck emotions, stuck energy, and stuck beliefs in order to release the baggage we’ve been carrying around for years (often unknowingly). This work will often take us back to our early childhood, younger than 6 years old, to change our brain and the beliefs we developed then as we tried to make sense of the world, which no longer serve us in adulthood! These modalities are powerful, effective, and quick, especially the NLP techniques that literally have us re-wire your brain, from which you can create the future you want!

Imagine getting up every day full of energy is if you were in your 20s. Again, what would that be? Like? What would that be worth to you? What is your health worth toMelissa Deally:
you? Think about it. Your health isn't everything. But without it, everything else is nothing. And yet too many of us are taking it for granted until something goes wrong. No one wakes up hoping to be diagnosed with a disease or chronic illness. And yet, we've never been taught how to be proactive in our health through our school system, or public health. As a registered health coach and integrative health practitioner, I believe it is time this information is made available to everyone. Combining new knowledge around your health and the ability to do my functional medicine lab tests in the comfort of your own home will allow you to optimize your health for today and all your tomorrow's don't wait for your wake up call.Melissa Deally:
Welcome back to another episode of Don't wait for your wake up call podcast. My name is Melissa dealey and I am the host of this podcast. And today I'm excited to continue the theme of intuition and working with the unconscious mind. And before we dive in, I would love to share another testimonial with you, I thank my clients for sending me these I am so grateful. And I feel like for listeners, it might help you have a broader understanding of the type of work that I do so that if you have friends that are struggling with your health, you will know if I might be someone that you would like to refer them to. Or maybe you need the help of someone else. But if you don't know what I do, you can't use me as a resource. Right? So this is what Jacqueline from California had to say. The last two years have been extremely stressful and I did not take full control of my health which is unusual for me. The result was a gain of excess pounds and the realization in January 2022 that I needed to get back on track. I was introduced to Melissa Delia and heard about her 21 day detox program and after a consultation decided to go for it. In just three weeks my health is stronger than it has been in a long time, my craving for sugar has gone. My mild asthma has cleared up and I even gave up my nightly wine habit. And I've lost some of those pounds and I'm on my way back to normal. Can't recommend Melissa's Health Program enough. If you have the will there is a way to get back on track. Thanks so much for Jack, Jacqueline for sharing your testimonial. So let's dive into this episode. Today I want to be sharing with you some different healing modalities that you may not be aware of, because there's one thing for certain, the more I learned, the more I realized there is to learn, right. And so one of them I've already covered off on back in episode 46, which I believe came out on Christmas Day 2021. And that is theta healing. And go back and listen to that episode if you would like to learn about Theta Healing and tapping into the brain's theta brainwaves in order to support healing, and energy healing. Another one that I have started practicing myself more recently, I've known about it for a while but haven't really been practicing it. It's called EFT Emotional Freedom Technique or better known as tapping. And tapping uses the meridians of the body the meridians are of Chinese origin. The simplest definition is that a meridian is an energetic highway in the human body. And these energetic highways allow for the flow of energy known as chi, or it's in Chinese, they spell it Qi you might have seen that before. And it allows the energy to circulate throughout the body. And the meridians exist in corresponding pairs. And each Meridian has multiple acupuncture points along the pathway. And so with tapping, we're actually not using acupuncture, but we're using our own fingers and tapping on the points. And so very common way to tap is to start tapping here just to the inside of your eyebrow for those that are listening with two fingers on each hand. Or you can just do it one hand one side at a time down the body down the right hand side of the body and then down the left hand side of the body. The beautiful thing about this is there really isn't a wrong way to do it. And so I like to use two hands As at my inner eyebrows, and then I go to the outer edge of my eyebrow. And then after tapping there, I come in underneath my eyes kind of just at the top of my cheek. And from there, I use just one hand, two fingers on my upper lip, just between the nose and my lip. And from there, I go into a little dimple in my chin. And from there, I'm back to two hands tapping on the inside nodules of my collarbone. And from there, you can actually cross your arms over your body and tap right on your side of your body where your bra strap might cross over. And from there, tap at the top of your head. Now, as you're tapping, what you're doing is you're speaking experiences, we typically start off with a negative past experience that we're wanting to release the emotion from. So we're talking through those negative emotions and bringing them to the forefront. And then from there, we tap through the positive emotions, because so much of what we tell ourselves isn't even true, right? We have these beliefs in our head, we carry these emotions with us from childhood, about the way certain events happen. But in reality, when we stop and say, Is that really true, and we do a little bit of, you know, visualization on the incident, to understand all the emotions they came up, but we start to realize a lot of what we're carrying around isn't necessarily true. And we can also shift it to more positive emotions. And as we tap through the more positive emotions, we're starting to shift and release the stuck energy and those stuck emotions in our body. So again, I'm absolutely no expert at this, I just want to be sharing these amazing healing modalities that I'm learning about with you.Melissa Deally:
There's many experts out there, you might have heard of Nick Ortner, from the Tapping Solution, somebody that I'm following, and doing some tapping work now with is Margaret Lynch Rainier, she's got a couple books out tapping into wealth, as well as unblocked. And going through her books she has tapping scripts. And so you can find the ones that apply to you. And follow those scripts. And move your hands through the different meridians of the body as you're following the scripts that are in her books. So I find that very helpful. You can also find her on YouTube, and she's got a lot of videos there that you can follow along with as well. So that's of Chinese origin. Then the other that I want to share with you is about the chakras, which is from India. So the word chakra literally means wheel in Sanskrit and symbolizes the flow of energy in your body. So very much like the Chinese identified the meridians as a flow of energy in the body. In ancient India, they did as well and they called it the chakras and they identified seven chakras that are present in the body as being energy centers, and they are known to regulate emotions. And their origin can be traced back to early Hinduism and Buddhism. Both of them talking about the shifting nature of our chakras. So the seven chakras are starting at the bottom of our body and moving up we have our root chakra, which is located at the base of our spine, and represented by the color red, and then we move up to the sacral chakra. And this is located just below your belly button and represented by the color orange. From there, we keep moving up to our solar plexus chakra, which is represented by the color yellow, and then we move into our heart chakra, represented by the color green, and then into our throat chakra, represented by the color blue. And then we have our third eye chakra which is in the forehead, kind of between our two eyes. And that's represented by the color indigo. And then we have our crown chakra the top of our head represented by the color violet. And so again, these are all important points in the body where we can have stuck energy we can have stuck emotions. And when we tap into doing work with our chakras, we can release this as well. This is something that I first started learning about when I started my yoga practice. Again, I am absolutely no expert. But I just wanted to share these different modalities with you in case this is something that is of interest to you that you would like to tap into more of and And then we have my most recent modalities that I've trained in. And that is NLP which has been around since the 1980s. Neuro Linguistic Programming. Neuro relates to the nervous system, which is the mind through which our experience is processed through our five senses. Right? Then we have the linguistic, which is the language and other nonverbal communication systems through which our neural network representations are ordered and coded and given meaning. And this includes pictures, sounds, feelings, tastes, smells, and the words we use, ie the self talk. So that's basically how our brain is making sense of everything.Melissa Deally:
That's coming in through our language and our nonverbal communication systems. And then programming relates to the ability to discover and utilize the programs we run inside ourselves, the things we do inside our heads, and also that others do, so that we can be achieving our own specific and desired outcomes, right, we all have programs that we run on, whether it's just habits that we've formed throughout our life in order for life to be easier, right, our brain wants to take a break, it wants to conserve energy and do as little work as possible when needed. And so we create habits, when we do this, that means we do this, then we do this, or whether it's something like driving a car and reversing out of the driveway that once when we first learned how to do it was so difficult, you're looking in the side mirrors, you're looking in the rearview mirror, you're checking over your shoulder, you're checking that the car is actually in reverse, you're looking to see if there's any cars behind you are coming down the road behind you, et cetera. And it feels overwhelming as your brains just learning to do that. Whereas you probably got in your car today, and just backed out of the driveway, and you didn't have any of those thoughts, because your programming that you're running, has you able to do that so easily now. But sometimes we run programs that are negatively impacting our lives, that we need to be undoing because they no longer serve us that might have been very effective programming when we were younger. But it's not such great programming now. So here's the really interesting thing. We are all like cell phones, running a bunch of apps that we can upgrade, delete, and update. And some of those apps, though, have been running since we were three or four years old. And they are now outdated. So in NLP, we can rewire the brain chemistry. And it's very quick, as Dr. Daniel Amon says, Change Your Brain, Change Your Life. So it's exciting because we can do this. And remember, in the last episode, when I said intuition is the knowing without the need for conscious reasoning. The reason that I'm tying these types of modalities into our work today, or into this podcast today, is simply that NLP timeline therapy, hypnotherapy. They're all done without conscious reasoning. And so I want to share that with you hear some of what I am now offering in this realm of work. So for those of you that have been following me for a long time, you know that I'm all about detoxing and teaching people how to detox. Just understanding the importance of detail detoxing our body, in this time and age where we have over 144,000 manmade chemicals introduced since World War Two. I've done many episodes on detoxing, alluding to detoxing, etc. And I am still a huge believer in it being a game changer in our health journey. Because when we get those toxins out of our body, we're lowering inflammation, we're giving our body a full reset, reset. And we are significantly reducing our risk of chronic illness when we lower the inflammation levels in the body and get all those toxins out, right. But what more can we be doing once we have Detox our physical body, there's still more that we can do. And so I've created some additional programs that I want to share with you. So the first one is detoxing your trigger foods and stopping your cravings. And this is using the power of NLP. And so what we can do is remove foods that you maybe like a little bit too much, you know, like maybe it's a certain kind of chocolate bar, maybe it's a certain flavor of ice cream. Maybe it's a certain type of cookie or brownie and that you just know when that food is around, you're going to eat it, and you're going to eat too much of it, and then you're going to regret it later and wish you didn't do that. And so rather than having to, you know, try to rely on willpower, which truly doesn't work, willpower is definitely not a long term solution. What we can do is rewire your brain using NLP, to have your unconscious mind, connect the food that you like, a little bit too much with a food that you really dislike, and reprogram your brain so that you now associate that food with the thing that you really dislike. And you no longer want it, how amazing is that it is really, really powerful. So something else that we can do in NLP to is shift our image of how we remember things, how we view things in our mind's eye in order to be changing habits. And that's something that I have been very successful with myself is I've been a nail biter my entire life. And now I actually have nails and I can wear nail polish and my nails are actually feeling pretty strong. And I don't even bite them anymore, because I was able to shift the trigger. And the trigger of bringing my fingernails to my mouth has now shifted to if my hands coming up as I just move my hand to my chest and play with jewelry or whatever instead, because I was able to reprogram that trigger in my mind to keep my keep me from biting my fingernails. So this is how powerful this work can be. We can shift habits based on triggers, we can remove trigger foods, we can also detox your emotions. So again, going back to the chakras and EFT These are similar modalities, talking about shifting emotions. And so often in life, we stuffed down emotions, emotions that we just don't want to deal with in the moment. And so we push them down and refuse to feel them. And what that can do over time is that can actually cause illness, it becomes another form of toxicity, especially if we're doing this too often. And it's instead far better to release those emotions and get them out of our body. And so detoxing our emotions is a very powerful thing to do in optimizing your health, we've detox the physical body. Now let's detox the emotional body, get rid of all of that emotional baggage that you might have been carrying around for years and years and years. And maybe you didn't know that you could get rid of it. But you absolutely can, again, using the power of our unconscious mind. And something called timeline therapy is very powerful. And it's very quick. And from there, we can also be detoxing the mind our mental body, right. And that comes into talking about our mindset. And we're using NLP practices, again, timeline therapy practices, and even potentially hypnotherapy practices in order to shift the way we talk to ourselves, the beliefs that we have about ourselves, our place in the world, who we are, et cetera, et cetera. And when we can detox our mental body, that is huge. Because I often asked my clients, if you talked to your friends, the way you talk to yourself, Would you have any friends?Melissa Deally:
Just think about that, would you? We're so quick to beat ourselves up over every little thing to judge ourselves to not celebrate our wins, but spend ages beating ourselves up over something that we think didn't go the way that we wanted it to go. And as a result, we have all of these toxic thoughts in our mind that aren't serving us and we can absolutely, detox them as well. So this is super, super powerful, powerful work, just adding on to the idea of detoxing the physical body, then the emotional, and then the mental body. And doing this work truly allows you to walk freer, lighter, you know, even it helps with releasing weight because so often the weight that we have in our body it can be triggered by imbalanced hormones. It can be triggered by a number of things, but a big big factor in many people is it is triggered as a form of protection, to be protecting ourselves from the emotions that were not wanting to feel. So if any of what I've shared with you today is something you'd like to learn more about, it relates to you in some way or resonates with you in some way. And you think, hey, this might be the type of healing modality that I'm looking for. Or maybe you know, somebody who could benefit from these types of healing modalities, please share this podcast with them. And reach out to me if you would like to know more about this work, because I'd love to have a conversation with you and see if you are a good candidate for using any of the NLP timeline therapy or hypnotherapy techniques that I am now trained in.
