Transforming Grief and Loss

Dry Crying to Release Trapped Sorrow and Grief

Dry Crying to Release Trapped Sorrow and Grief. According to Chinese medicine, sorrow can cause Lung Qi stagnation. What that means is that Lung Qi cannot flow freely or do its proper tasks.  Physically, you might have allergies, bronchitis, coughing, and other respiratory issues. Emotionally, you most likely feel sorrow and grief longer than is healthy.

Dry Crying is a long-prescribed exercise that alleviates Lung Qi stagnation and releases trapped sorrow & grief at the deepest cellular level. You will learn more about the process in the video.

The most common homework prescription given for stagnant lung qi is the Dry Crying exercise. The concept of dry crying is best understood if you look back to when you a little child. When little children cry hard, they generally release full body resonances. They shake and undulate from the middle of the body, allowing the pain to resonate outwards.

When children reach puberty, they learn (through parental or peer pressure) to suppress their feelings, and to restrain full body resonance, by tensing the muscles in the throat. The constant pressures from society, parents and peers, result in self-conscious feelings and shame regarding the loss of control over the emotions. The following exercise allows the patient to experience full body resonation and to release deeply suppressed emotions.

This exercise returns you back to the preadolescent state of energy release, allowing you to detoxify deep seated grief within the tissues.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

You should avoid this particular exercise if you have previously injured you back. If you have difficulty with the stretching of the cervical or lumbar vertebrae, it is recommended that you wear a cervical collar or lumbar support to prevent injury to the spine. Also, the exercise can be modified to allow the patient to sit comfortably on the edge of a chair while stretching the psoas muscles if the standing stretch is too difficult.
