Real People DO Cry…

Do you ever have those moments when you feel like you’re about to BURST with emotion? When everything you’ve been holding inside just wants to erupt to the surface? Well that’s exactly how I felt yesterday. And so I gave myself the space to sit down and just cry…

Emotional release is one of the most transformational and healing practices you can ever do for yourself. Most of us have been conditioned to believe that expressing emotion is ‘weak’, but in fact, it is quite the opposite. It takes quite a bit of courage to willingly ‘feel’ the deeply rooted pain and suffering that most people spend their entire lives avoiding.

We all want to be free… We want to experience the fullest amount of bliss, joy, love, and peace that we possibly can. But unless you learn how to deal with the emotions, beliefs, and thoughts that create pain and suffering, peace will always be eluding you. We have all accumulated a lifetime of pain… Whether it’s anger, grief, jealousy, anxiety, or any other fear-based emotion, this pain-body will perpetually create more pain and suffering until it is dealt with.

The biggest transformations I’ve experienced in my own life have been a direct result of the emotional release work I’ve done. Emotions are the gateway to experiencing the unconditional love and boundless joy that are available to us… Watch this video below to learn more about my own personal journey and the life-changing process of emotional release:

You are definitely wise beyond your years. I really enjoy your content. Keep it up!


Cecil Wilks April 28, 2009 at 8:17 pm

Good stuff Katie. Does it matter what you use to trigger a good cry? Joy -vs- Sadness. How often should one does this? I appreciate what you are doing for the collective consciousness.


Steve C May 19, 2009 at 11:15 am

Katie your magnificent, this has been and continues my expression from watching your presentations these last few months. Watching Pamela Stephenson & husband Billy Connolly interview with Parkinson yesterday, explaining Billy’s adaption and humorous release.. my spontaneous tears, deep feelings of emotion, which i suspect were mine exposed thru Billy’s story & it being OK to have that, were just lovely to be with and experience the release.
See you again.


Esther Braden April 28, 2009 at 8:17 pm

I agree with you, Katie! And still after some years of “hard work” on myself, from time to time crying for me is a great possibilitie to let go stuff that comes up… Sometimes i even do not now what it is about but it´s gone, that is what i can feel 😉 A lot of blocks and barriers are releasing this way!

Take care,

Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. You, JB, Jayson, Jenn & other enlightened marketers have really begun to make a difference in this crazy internet dimension.

It’s my intent and vision to take a place alongside all of you as someone who gives for the sake of giving. The light and love that you bring out is tangible.

Tolle, Redfield, Villoldo, Lao Tsu, Millman and other wonderful writers and authors have helped us realize how much we have to learn while wearing this suit of skin. What an absolute pleasure it is to see that freshness and newness and LIFE coming to fruition in Internet & Network Marketing.

Thank you so much for bringing it like you do. You’re a true inspiration to so many people.

Hi katie! Just wanna say thanx for all the encourgments and emails you send me! It’s truely a blessing be able to network with you.


Kirk Jeppi April 28, 2009 at 8:45 pm

Hi Katie,

I enjoy listening to your words of wisdom. It sounds like someone has been reading/listening to Eckhart Tolle’s “A new Earth” book. I am a huge Oprah Fan and when she did this series with him I was truly amazed as you. It is always good to get another perspective. Thanks for sharing.

So true! Those bad emotions got released for me in therapy a few years ago. It was hard work, but I learned to be kinder and more patient with my self. I also found that after awhile the humor that existed in those emotions. I call it the absurdity of them. When you can laugh at them they are healed. Thanks for posting this!


Celene April 28, 2009 at 8:52 pm

Hi Katie-
Just met you this weekend –
I noticed that you seemed a little preoccupied – not like all your messages. Perhaps I sensed your pain. But – what a revelation. I too need to clean up. I look forward to being with you again and continuing to build a friendship.


Llittlerain April 28, 2009 at 8:53 pm

Katie you are 100% right.

But when i tell women that i cry it out.
Most think that a man should not cry.

I think that is,not so.
you should get it all out,and talk to God and his Son about everything
that is going on in your life!

No way am i going to hold it in,and make me hate people…
Release it to the UNIVERSE,they will Hear !


Bill April 28, 2009 at 9:10 pm

HI Katie
Thank you so much for sharing this message. I never looked at it this way. Almost wish I had not come to this site whew!! I watched this and applied it and biy what a load of jujnk I was carring around for ever it seems. I did not know why I was always losing the ones I loved it seems but one emotion triggered another and you know what happened. Much release came flowing out. I think I needed a five gallon bucket to catch all the water flowing out of my eyes. How does the body hold all that water in is a mystery to me but do I feel way better and for the first time in along time got some understanding of why I am the way I am. So again thanks for sharing this with us/me.
your friend Bil


wfred April 28, 2009 at 9:22 pm

Hi Katie,
I enjoy your videos. While it is good to release emotions and to embrace your feelings, as Eckhart Tolie explains in the “Power Of Now”
our “Pain Body” is a living energy and this “Pain Body” will live from the pain you are releasing and want you to relase more. You are the awarness behind the pain. Being one with this awarness there is no pain. Wfred


Michael Cloke April 28, 2009 at 9:23 pm

Hey Katie :(

check this out:

Golden Shower is a powerful chi kung skill in Shaolin Wahnam for cleansing or purification. This skill can be engendered by various different techniques. In this chi kung class at the Guan Yin Temple on the Blue Mountain, Sifu Wong taught the course participants to use the technique Carrying the Moon to effect the skill Cosmic Shower. This impromptu video clip is a continuation of Emotional Cleansing in Golden Shower shown earlier. After a powerful emotional cleansing earlier, Juan Pablo who is a trainer of senior business executives, is seen here laughing loudly, while Dr Ana Maria, a world famous psychiatrist from the United States, smiles sweetly from her heart. You can hear Dr Ana Marias comments about her remarkable experience of laughter in another video clip. Sounds of laughter are common in Shaolin Wahnam courses.


Gintaras April 28, 2009 at 10:31 pm

interesting opinion… i really like it :)
may i ask what sources are?



Tami Gramont April 28, 2009 at 10:32 pm


Well done! You’re right on target. I’ve been doing this work for 20 years: weekends, workshops, therapies of all kinds. Read people like Robert Bly about sacred masculine space and created women’s groups about sacred feminine space and its all the same. We need to feel. Allowing and wallowing are different, (which I am continually learning) honoring space and dwelling in it are different too. I’m in process like everyone and remembering we are all in process is a blessing most days. I’m honored to watch your process and to learn from you.

Very good content, and also its sometimes that you wake up in the morning and feeling like an new person or that something has just left you. Like you just could lie down in the bed forever and feel the bliss.
I believe emotional release really helps more then people think and also that go thru your life and try to keep a deeper understanding why you got those responses you got or why you took the action you took and just observe it as it is. An important thing how to handle criticism, say “thanks” to their criticism. Really works great and makes that person even angrier and stops since it does not work on you. Learned this from a guy and id reccomend it. Its a start, later you do can not really get “bad” into your life at all.


Guillermo April 28, 2009 at 11:03 pm

Hi Katie:

Just wanted to drop a quick note and tell you that you are awesome. Thank you very much for sharing. Take care.



Robert April 28, 2009 at 11:31 pm

The only time I really figure out what I’m thinking and what I want, is when I sit and write and feel, sometimes, I cry, but mostly it’s just a tool for me to sort of unwind my head and use the emotion to strip away the emotions from the task at hand to figure out my best move.


Fathi April 29, 2009 at 2:48 am

How to release from tensions: Crying is one of the ways. Savasana is also one of the ways, Praying is is also one of the ways, Self Hypnosis is one of the ways…..Human are the most Amazing creature of GOD!


Justin Glover April 29, 2009 at 3:17 am

excellent post Katie! Well done!


henry April 29, 2009 at 6:07 am

i think there are some different ways to emotional release. katie is one of the best ways, michael explain chinese shaolin qi gong, yoga, water spring, massage etc. Anyway, I like qigong and yoga to be relax and emotional release. :)


Ivelina April 29, 2009 at 9:16 am

This is so true.Thank you so much for sharing.You are amazing.
I cry a lot.Sometimes because i am happy about someting and I can;t stop the tears..Its a brilliant way to feel better.
I used to hold so much useless negative emotions and it wasn’t nice at all.In the last year I started learning more about myself and how I can become better person.It has been amazing.
I am so grateful and happy for everything that you share about personal grouth and marketing.
Warmest regards


Mark Goldie April 29, 2009 at 10:49 am

Hi Katie,

I agree that your emotions are the gateway to your higher self. There is a tremendous amount of energy trapped inside our emotional blockages. Energy that can be tranformed to fuel the realisation of our true purpose. Have your read the book “Busting Loose from the Money Game” by Robert Scheinfeld? It’s very relevant to what I’ve heard you talk about.

Happy releasing



Angela Bettess April 29, 2009 at 11:12 am

I use a lot of tools to release emotions and this has also raised my state of consciousness.

Meditation, journalling my feelings and when situations come up when I am complaining or criticizing, I then look at myself and what I am criticising in myself which is the same or opposite of the other person. I am always aware of my mirror. People are a reflection of our consciousness.

Writing an anger letter about that person (usually insights come through this process) and release to the universe by burning it and sending loving intentions.

I am always radiating unconditional love to those people I am not connecting with which changes the energy from conflict to love.

If you have fear that will add power to that thought, so send love and good wishes and look at the best out come for all concerned that you can imagine. Where there is fear there is no love, as soon as you love the situation the fear will dissolve.

Here is a saying I love, “Where there is love there is no fear. Where this is fear there is no love. As a master I realise love is the power that heals me, and everyone around me. Love is my life and my sustenance”.

I have gone through a lot of growth in the last 12 months on these processes alone, so I know that it works.

To our continued growth and evolution,


David Koehn April 29, 2009 at 1:41 pm

This is Awesome!! Thank you for being so truthful.


Genevieve April 29, 2009 at 6:02 pm

I agree, crying definitely helps me release blocked emotions, music is one medium that really brings me to an emotional place where I can release, a song that come to mind is”everybody hurts”-R.E.M. Although while you cry it can be somewhat painful when everything is out it is definitely transformational..awww feels good and I feel lighter.


MaryAnn Russell April 29, 2009 at 10:01 pm

I was reflecting on your message about crying and emotional release. The benefit that I experience from emotional release is a deep connection with both my human and divine nature. The release is experienced as a moment of profound grace for me.

It was nice to meet you last weekend. Thank you for sharing and teaching.



Lukas Rethke April 30, 2009 at 2:55 am


Great Video!!

I agree that a good cry and releasing emotion is a great way to promote healing and feeling good. I know I have a lot built up and need to learn HOW


Lukas Rethke April 30, 2009 at 2:57 am

What happened!!

Part two

to release them better. It seems every time they start to come up, only a little bit comes out for some reason.



Katie Freiling May 1, 2009 at 7:57 pm

Hey Cecil, you can release tears of joy or sadness and they’re both transformational. What’s most important is really getting in touch with the emotional body and allowing yourself to actually ‘feel’ whatever emotions come up… So whether it’s pure bliss or deep pain, you’re deepening your ability to become more emotionally aware :)


Katie Freiling May 1, 2009 at 8:00 pm

Hey Bill, wow… So amazing to hear the radical honesty! Nothing wrong with filling a few buckets with tears every now and then :)

It is said, men enjoy looking strong, so they avoid crying, they do not want others to think they are weak. Am told the men who fail to cry shorten their lives by a decade.

Hi. I like the way you write. Will you post some more articles?


Katrina July 13, 2009 at 7:45 am

As humans we laugh and cry, but seldom do we question how, or why. Crying is a more complicated process than one would at first imagine. We cry for so many reasons. Sometimes I cry just to release my emotional feelings that I can’t ignore the reality.


Eric Goldstein September 2, 2009 at 5:44 pm

Hey Katie!

You nailed this one right on!
Thank you for sharing this insight
with the world…

Keep shining:)

So very powerful. The power to let go and release energy is amazing. Some of us think of it as the “weight on our shoulders” among many other things.

You have a great gift Katie. A gift that many of us are thankful for and a gift many of us are striving to learn how to share in our own way.

Thank you Katie,


Shannon Tecson March 7, 2010 at 5:33 pm

I use a gauge for myself. I look at it in sometimes a thirty day, sixty day or even ninety day gauge, when a good cry or “peeling” is ready. I love a good cry and release. It shows me that I’m growing. You’ve given a good sign…I’ve felt those pent up emotions before and have waited until it just burst! In these days, I usually find myself crying and laughing at the same time because it feels so good. I can tell these days when I feel “disconnection.” I use this as an emotional awareness that there is something that I am not looking at correctly. Sensitivity is important. Feeling is important. Taking time for myself is important. I really love the peeling of the onion!

I love you Katie!

Thanks a bunch Katie!

Crying and laughing are two great ways to release Resistance. These are two very different emotions, but what they do have in common, is that in both cases you experience a sense of relief. When you reach a sense of relief, it’s always a Good thing :)

Jennifer May July 18, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Hi Katie… What a great video and I really learned something new from this. See for me I spent years holding all of my emotions inside. My entire childhood was full of arguing (my family did not get along, especially my parents) and as I grew into a young woman and moved out I started building relationships with others…

In that process I got hurt many times pretty bad (truly hit my heart, I was very emotional growing up) and at that point I somehow got so very scared of my emotions, of being hurt or feeling pain and completely BLOCKED myself off from anyone or any emotion. This was about 9 years ago that I chose to do this. Now over the last year I truly have worked, built and grown to allow myself to feel my emotions. It is a process I am working on still but it is so empowering to know that I am going down the right path.

You gave me some great inspiration through this video and I am definitely going to take it to a much higher level! Great stuff girl! :)

I’m not saying I can’t get to my emotions but I have had a lot of severe traumatic experiences in my life. I went to pre marriage counseling last year. My wife is extremely emotional and im non emotional, I guess that is what it would be called.

I can say that I am happy. I don’t know anything about emotional release though.
