Emotional Freedom

    Inner balance is essential for harmonizing mind, body, and spirit. Ayurveda offers a holistic approach to emotional well-being by emphasizing the interconnectedness of these elements through mindfulness and lifestyle adjustments.

    What are our fundamental human emotional needs?

    Attention, Affection, Acceptance, & Appreciation.


    All our emotions are derived from our perception of whether these needs are met or not.
    We experience all of our emotions in two ways:

    • Comfort: all the feelings that move us from constriction to expansion, including joy, peace, love, delight, and gratitude.
    • Discomfort: all the feelings that constrict us, including distress, anger, regret, fear, pain, and sadness.

    Different Ayurvedic body types (doshas) have unique emotional predispositions. Though they may respond differently to feelings and unmet needs, all can benefit from improved communication skills.


    • Vata dosha is highly sensitive. In times of crisis or conflict, Vata types typically turn inward, grappling with self-criticism. Prone to overthinking and anxiety, they may find it challenging to assert themselves confidently. Learning and practicing assertiveness and non-victimizing communication are crucial skills for individuals with dominant Vata energies.
    • Pitta dosha exudes self-assurance and stability, but their competitive and argumentative tendencies can manifest in impatience and a lack of tact. Despite their assertiveness, Pitta types may grapple with anger, blame, and aggressive communication. It’s crucial for Pitta dosha to master expressing thoughts and emotions without resorting to judgment, dismissal, or criticism of others.
    • Kapha dosha individuals thrive as partners and confidants, known for their emotional calmness and stability. However, when their Kapha constitution becomes imbalanced, they may struggle to articulate their emotions and thoughts, leading to tendencies of withdrawal, dismissal, or overlooking of issues. It is crucial for those with Kapha dominance to avoid falling into apathy, avoidance, or indifference. Engaging in techniques for emotional release can empower them to openly acknowledge and express their thoughts and emotions.


    Emotional detox, journaling, conscious communication, EFT, and meditation are powerful emotional freedom techniques.

    Emotional Freedom

    3 STEPS:




    • Emotional detox¬†helps us focus on our own needs and feelings.
    • Too often, we resort to criticizing others rather than voicing our needs. However, confronting and recognizing painful experiences, though challenging, can empower us greatly.
    • We are not responsible for the happiness of others, but we are responsible for our own.



    • Conscious Communication, inspired by Marshall Rosenberg’s work, provides a structured approach to embracing our needs and feelings. Marshall Rosenberg emphasizes compassionate listening, empathetic expression, and a focus on needs rather than judgments. Key steps include:
    • Translating JUDGMENT into UNMET NEED.
    • Expressing your FEELINGS and your NEEDS clearly.



    • The Emotional Freedom Technique can help you move through overwhelm, stress, and anxiety caused by unprocessed emotions. EFT, rooted in the principles of acupuncture, combines traditional medicine (tapping) with self-acceptance (affirmations) and dual awareness (tapping sequences) in its technique.
    • Emotional detox holds equal significance to physical detox, and effective techniques can manage our emotional responses and communication effectiveness.

    These methods assist us in unveiling, confronting, and accepting our emotions, taking responsibility for our feelings, letting go of negative assumptions, and gaining control over our emotional wellbeing.

    Techniques like:

    • Emotional Detox
    • Conscious Communication
    • EFT
