Lost In My Head and Feeling Rubbish

Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor

A lesson in putting too much pressure and expectations on ourselves

I caught the dreaded bug this week and it affected me more than I anticipated! 

In the middle of the night I woke from a deep sleep feeling absolutely awful, ended up running to the bathroom and well, the rest is probably a bit too much information and may have needed a trigger warning!

I know so much has been going around, and I didn’t expect it to feel so awful, but it really knocked me. But not for the reasons you might think. 

The body does a wonderful job of healing from infection, sickness and anything else that is thrown at it. Our only job is to listen to the body and make it's job a little easier by not interfering.

There is nothing for us to do, even when we are being physically sick, the body is healing just the way it needs to. It doesn’t need anything from us.

A day later, I started to feel so on edge, overwhelmed, teary and was completely stuck in my head worrying about all sorts!

This can be a bit of a vicious cycle because the more in our thoughts we are, the more this affects mood.

And when we are in a lower mood, negative thoughts seem more appealing to investigate.

And so there I was; lost in my head and starting to feel rubbish.

I was putting too much pressure and expectation on myself.

This is usually when all the thoughts start to surface around;

🤔What if this feeling doesn’t go? 

🤔How long will this last?

🤔Why didn't others have it this long?

🤔Why now?

🤔I have so much to do - how will I manage it all? 

Then my brain starts to look inside the archives for evidence to back up all of these perceived problems I have worked hard to find!

"It's time to access the archives and search for evidence to back up these feelings of worry and overwhelm" - our brains, when we are in a lower state.

It very quickly found evidence of sickness staying around for 9 months when I was pregnant and somehow made a very loose connection and I began to worry that this would last forever!

This went on for a couple of days in between trips to the toilet, until I caught myself, and it lifted.

I remembered I didn’t have to do anything other than see it for what it was. And as naturally as it does, my mood lifted, things seemed clearer and I was back in my life! 

I know that so many of us can get caught in this cycle, and it can last days if not weeks or months for some (it used to be months for me) and although its part of being human, and therefore we are not looking to be in a position where this never happens, (we could be waiting a very long time) the big difference for me now versus before I understood the Three Principles, is that I no longer fear this experience.

With my understanding and experience of The Three Principles that I share inside my Membership, I am so much more accepting of the ebbs and flows of the human experience, and this means I rarely find myself getting stuck for long!

Are we overcomplicating mental health? 

The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all! 

Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief. 

Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
