Catherine Wilde

Hi, Amanda. I am so excited to talk with you today. Thank you for joining me.

What is Emotional Self Care?

Amanda Hill Ryall

Thank you so much, Catherine. It’s an honor to be on your show. My name is Amanda Hill Ryall. I’m a mother. I’m a teacher. I’m an ELSA, so I work with emotional children to help them discuss their emotions, acknowledge them. And I’m an author. And just become a podcaster, too.

Catherine Wilde

That’s amazing. So can you share a little bit. So you have your books and I want to jump into inner child healing and the emotional healing journey that you went through.

Amanda Hill Ryall

I was a very serious child, and what I realized now looking back is that something happened when I was about three or four. I didn’t like how I was viewed, and so I decided I was going to be a very good girl and please everybody. And not get told off anymore. And what I realized, I turned into a people please, searching for validation. And in that I just lost who I was, what my purpose was. And I realized that we all have an inner child, a wounded inner child.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Every single one of us. We are actually wounded inner children masquerading as adults. And we’re thinking that we’ve all got it together and we’re in control. And I was a right control freak. I liked it my way. I like to take control. Because i felt got my worth that way, being useful for others, helping others.

Amanda Hill Ryall

And I never put myself first because that’s not what my parents brought me up for. I was brought up in a Catholic Irish family, and it was the thing you go and help others.

Amanda Hill Ryall

My father was a doctor, my mother was totally giving. And I do have a giving heart. But what I’ve realized is if we don’t look after ourselves . And that’s our bodies, our minds, our emotions, our welfare, we’re no good to anybody anyway. So I’m now spending time. I have a morning routine, an evening routine that I spend time with me, meditating and facing my demons of my mind and my thoughts, which tend to be a little bit negative.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Okay. A lot is negative, but that’s fine. And I’ve realized and I’m just forgiving. As a teacher, I tell the children because I don’t like to use rubbers (erasers). And I say, you just cross out some mistakes and I do that on the board on purpose so they can see that I have no fear of it.

But some of them think if you don’t get it perfectly on the paper, I think the whole world’s going to crash around them. And what I want everybody to realize mistakes actually help you learn.

Amanda Hill Ryall

It might not be successful, but it depends on how you look at it. Do you say, oh, my goodness, gracious me. I shouldn’t have done that and berate yourself or you go, “Oh, that’s interesting. Look what I did there.” and have another go.

Catherine Wilde

Absolutely. That’s how we get better, right?

Amanda Hill Ryall

Yes.

Catherine Wilde

That’s how inventors create things they make so many mistakes.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Exactly! The guy that created penicillin. He made it totally by accident. And look how successful that has been.

Catherine Wilde

Yeah. It’s amazing what we can create when we allow ourselves that freedom to fail.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Yeah.

Catherine Wilde

So I love that you talked about your morning and evening routines. I think self care is so important, especially for us as moms to nourish ourselves.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Yes! Because we got stories. “A good mom should….” And I actually wanted to be my dream as a child it’s always been about family. And I wanted it to be you might not know these programs. Walton’s, a Little House in the Prairie where it’s are loving and giving.

You didn’t have to have rich things holidays. But you had love. And that was my dream. And although I only had one child, I didn’t get married until I was 40, and I’m very grateful to have him. What I realized is…

To have a family, you need to be at home with yourself first. And accept yourself. Warts and all. Good days, bad days. Because actually, we’re all just human beings before we’re mums and we don’t very rarely, especially in today’s day and age. Just sit quietly by ourselves and listen to what our body and our minds are telling us.

Because my husband will tell you, I used to have a TV on in one room, the radio on the other room. I was busy, busy doing. And then I would burn out from overload and overwhelm.

Amanda Hill Ryall

And that’s just not the way I wanted to live. So I stopped and thought, “Right, what do I need to do?”

And the first time I did do meditation, I only lasted five minutes. I thought it was the longest loudest silence of my life.

Catherine Wilde

Five minutes is pretty good for the first time.

Amanda Hill Ryall

For the first go. I do it much longer now, and it just comes so naturally. But with the fast pace of life and, you know, moms juggling kids, household duties, jobs, shopping, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time.

Amanda Hill Ryall

And time was an issue with me because there’s not enough time in the day. And I realized that was just my mind telling me that. There’s always time for everything that’s important to you. You’ve just got to prioritize yourself.

Emotional Self Care Activities

Catherine Wilde

Absolutely. Yeah. So meditation is part of your self care. What other things do you enjoy doing for yourself?

Amanda Hill Ryall

So I do like a bubble bath. So I actually have a vomit journal, which I call a “VJ”. Which is when something bad happens at work and you’re just feeling like rather than go up to somebody go “blah, blah, blah, blah, blah” and complain. I write it all out in the journal. And what I’m noticing you catch that way what your attachment to an emotion is.

Mine used to be guilt and shame. Now it’s moved a bit too frustration. And you can welcome it in and let it go.

And that way, it’s not going on in my head. And then when I’m meeting you, I’m not just being a complainer or a drainer, as I call it. I’m being me. And with my energy and my joy, that’s how I want to show up. So that’s really important to me.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Another thing is scanning my environment so that I have a planner and I literally plan my meditation, exercise, tasks, jobs to-do, and then I don’t have to think about it.

If I know I want to exercise next morning, I’ll get to clothes out the night before because you know what it’s like in the morning. And you don’t the hit snooze button. I don’t do that anymore.

And some days you’ll say, “oh, no, just another five minutes.” I sau, “no, come on. We’re doing this.” And I’m catching the mood I’m in because if you wake up in a bad mood and you let your mind take over, your whole day goes out of kilter.

And what I found, if I don’t do my meditation because that really calms me down, it just makes me feel so connected with myself. If I don’t do that, my day is a nightmare. Because I realize I’m leading from my mind and not from my essence and soul.

Mindfulness of Emotions

Catherine Wilde

That’s beautiful. So you talked a little bit about emotions and you write children’s books? I have one of them here.

Amanda Hill Ryall

It’s the Mood Munchers.

Catherine Wilde

Yeah. And that’s something that I think is so important to start at a young age is to become aware of what we’re feeling and not press those down and see what messages they have for us. Right?

Amanda Hill Ryall

Absolutely. I worked with early years that’s three to five year olds and I work all throughout the school now. But when you used to ask children how you feel. It was either happy or sad. They had no other words.

So I used to say, oh, actually, I’m not sad. I’m disappointed, which is like sad. And I started using more vocabulary, but there’s this way or that way, there’s nothing in the middle. And they knew that teachers sometimes got cross.

Connecting With Your Emotions

Amanda Hill Ryall

But I wanted them to have the language to be able to describe how they were feeling, because if you don’t have the language, you’re stuck. But not only that for adults, because these books are for families as well. I have gone into the emotions of shame, guilt, despair.

Anxiety is one in my new book. And these are emotions that we all feel. But we don’t like to admit to them because they’re seen as I don’t like to use the word, but bad. If you’re saying right or wrong, good or bad.

And actually they’re not, they’re just an emotion. And emotions actually aren’t us. I thought I was my emotions. So “I’m happy.” No, “I’m feeling happy” or “I’m feeling angry.”

Emotional Acceptance

Amanda Hill Ryall

And what I’ve learned is that knowing that my thoughts aren’t myself and my emotions aren’t myself. I can choose to be me. Accept the emotions. Let them do their job. They’re like house guests.

They come in the front door, they do their job if you let them, because a lot of people don’t and then they can leave. But if you don’t let them because you “shouldn’t be feeling like that”, you repress them.

And what I’ve worked out with my body with my aches and pains at my age, I have a lot of repressed emotions, mainly to do with guilt, sadness, disappointment and anger.

And now I’m sitting there and I’m letting without the fear of, oh, my goodness, I’m going to disappear if I let this go out, or somebody is going to think badly of me. No, I choose me.

Catherine Wilde

That’s part of loving yourself and doing that emotional self care and healing emotionally.

Amanda Hill Ryall

It is. Because I see myself as a child. I literally did this, this weekend. And I bawled my eyes out. Because I was a bit annoyed that I hadn’t looked after myself as a child.

And I thought, “Well, no, I was a child.” That’s the job of the parents, et cetera. But then I’m not blaming my parents because they did a great job. But now how I look at it is I’m taking myself as the adult and embracing my younger self. Forgiving myself for not being there or aware of it or aware of myself.

Amanda Hill Ryall

And we’re embracing it and going on together. And in that space, I’m just feeling so free.

Catherine Wilde

I love how you describe that. Yes, as children, our parents did the best that they could.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Because they had their inner wounded child, you see.

Catherine Wilde

Exactly.

Amanda Hill Ryall

It goes down generations, and I am stopping the generation inherited narrative. I don’t want my son to be living his life through my dreams or my upset. And he’s inherited them.

Emotional Self Care Practices

Catherine Wilde

Exactly. So as adults, it’s our job now to heal that inner child and protect it and care for it. In your book, “I Choose Me”. I love how you share practice at the end of each chapter. That’s really helpful.

Mirrorwork is one that I think is really empowering. Could you walk us through that?

Amanda Hill Ryall

Oh, I love that. Yes, I did that with a group of ladies the other day. So if you’re honest, we might look in the mirror. But do you look in the mirror?

Because I believe our eyes are the window to the soul. And I know that because I have stood opposite a total stranger during a course and stared at them in their eyes for ten minutes without speaking. And that’s hard.

But what I got was connection. We are all the same. We are human beings and we are made for connection.

Amanda Hill Ryall

And yet our minds and judgments stop us. So the mirror work is simple and you can do it on your own with a little mirror or a big mirror.

And just look at yourself in the mirror for a little while. Notice the color of your eyes, the shape of your eyes. And then catch what your mind is telling you. It might be “Look at the state of me. Look at that bag. Oh, look at those wrinkles.” Whatever it might be. And catch yourself saying because you do it so unconsciously that you don’t even know how you’re speaking to yourself.

Amanda Hill Ryall

And that is how you are. And say it out loud. And then what I say to people, this is a shock. I said. “Now think of a favorite child. You have that’s about three or four or five years old. Might be a niece, nephew, or anybody, you know. Now say that out loud to them.” And they will go. “I wouldn’t say that! No!”

But do you not hear you say that to yourself and that you’ve been saying to yourself since childhood because you made up a story at some point that you didn’t get on or you didn’t belong or you weren’t good enough or you weren’t worthy or you’re unlovable whatever your story is. And you made it mean who you were and you’ve lived like that.

It’s now time to forgive yourself. Go back. Open up that Pandora box of locked-up emotion and hurt and heal it.

Catherine Wilde

Yes, that’s beautiful. Because that was something I was going to ask you about, too, was how to become aware of that narrative in your head. And that’s a beautiful way to do that.

Healing On Your Emotional Journey

Amanda Hill Ryall

It is. Yeah, because I caught myself the other day. I wear a lanyard for work. And I was in the car driving, and I realized, “Oh, God, I forgot my lanyard.” And immediately I felt real anger. And the first thing was, “You silly idiot.” And I just said, “Oh, my goodness.” And I thought, “I’m angry.” Right.  “Welcome anger. You’re here.” And I made a mistake. I forgot. And when I let that go, this first one ever happened to me because I’m still growing and developing.

Amanda Hill Ryall

I suddenly felt the compassion and the forgiveness inside me. And I carried on because I had another 15 minutes in the car, beautifully. Singing and all the rest of it. Now before, I would have not been aware of myself in the car because I’d have been so stuck in my head going, “Why can’t you do anything right? Goodness. All you had to do is remember it.” And the story goes on.

So think about the words you use. And it might be, because what I’ve also learned is when you can become frustrated with others or you have an opinion of other people. Usually what comes out of your mouth is not directed to them at all. You’re directing it to yourself. But it sounds better if you’re blaming the other person. So I’m learning to take responsibility for my language. We don’t use the word “blame” and “fault” anymore. We take the word “responsibility”, and it really changes me as a mom and how my son shows up.

Because when he was little and I was very much into the guilt and the drama, I just asked him to get the milk out of the fridge and he couldn’t find it. And he said, “It’s not my fault. I can’t find the milk!” And I said, “I just asked you to find the milk.” My husband said, “Well, you know, he’s got that from.”

I said, “No.”

He said, “Amanda, for the first five, six years of his life, you were just blaming yourself always.”

Amanda Hill Ryall

And I hadn’t even heard myself do it. But it was when it came out of the mouth of my son, I went, “No, that can’t go on.”

I have to do something. It’s not him. It’s me. We always think it’s the other person. No, it starts with us and our opinion of ourselves, our value and our worth of ourselves.

Catherine Wilde

Absolutely. I think our relationships are like mirrors. They’re reflecting back to us a lot of things.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Yes.

Catherine Wilde

I think that’s beautiful. Are there any other emotional healing and emotional self care practices that you can share with us?

Amanda Hill Ryall

Well, every day is a practice. One thing I notice, and this is with emotions. This is how closely it’s linked with adults and children. So as soon as you open your eyes in the morning before you even have a thought, you will feel something. Acknowledge what it is.

If it’s a not so pleasant thing because you’re tired or whatever. Say, “Yes, I’m tired. I see you. You’re here. We’re fine.” It’s all fine. There’s no good or bad. And that helps you find your balance.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Because what I realized is a lot of us because we’re so attached to our minds. We’re in hyperarousal. Or we’re in the hypoarousal, which is when you’ve just given up your flat and you’re empty. We want to be in the middle, the balance, the calm.

And it doesn’t have to be a “Woohoo!” because we’re all addicted to the thrill. So you want to find out what is your attachment and it could have come from childhood. But I was very attached to the drama, the thrill, the excitement. And then when it happened, I got overload over worked and then it went to the other level so it went to to the swings and the roundabouts.

Amanda Hill Ryall

You want to find the balance. And actually just realizing and saying to myself, “Yes, I’m a mom. Yes, I’m a teacher.” You could put ten different roles on me. But basically, I am a soul, an essence that was born into this body. And this body is perfect for my journey because my journey is very different from your journey. My voice is perfect for my journey and accept it.

Forget what they’re saying on the media. You should look like this. Or what you see in the magazines. That’s just to sell you stuff. Because if they were true and honest and what I’ve realized, we are born with everything we need to be happy, content and peaceful inside us.

Amanda Hill Ryall

But that won’t go for me, because then they couldn’t sell anything and the big companies. So just be compassionate. It’s taken me a long time to be compassionate to myself. And what I mean by that is loving forgiving and accepting.

Catherine Wilde

Yeah, that’s easier said than done a lot of days.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Oh, it is, especially because I’m quite old and even there. Can you see, I’m making a joke of it, but I’m glad I’m this old. It’s taken me a while to get there, but I’m not going to compare myself with other people. That’s another thing we do. And as parents were saying, “Why couldn’t you blah blah is on this site book? Why aren’t you at that level?” And it’s all about results.

It’s not about the results. It’s about the loving, the journey that’s important. So we’ve really got to change our society’s way of thinking on its head.

Children are perfect. You see them on the beach. They’re with the sand Castle. They’re just going for it. They don’t mind if it falls down. They go, oh, why did that happen? Or we’ll have a go. See what happens if I put water on it. They’re just curious and exploring. There is no right or wrong. Nobody has yet told them “You shouldn’t do that.”

It’s this language “should”, “could”, “must”, demands and expectations. I was attached to both. But in letting those go, I have literally lifted weight off my shoulders.

Catherine Wilde

It’s definitely so much more freeing when you can trust the journey and you talk about control before. It’s kind of a false sense of control, though, because we think we have control over things outside of us.

Amanda Hill Ryall

You can’t control the weather. You can’t control how things grow. And yet we think we can control our lives and what I realized. And I can accept I controlled things from a lack of self worth.

Because I looked good to others if I was organizing the holiday. Or sorting out the shopping .Or deciding where we’re going to eat as a group of friends. “Oh, I’ll sort it out. I’ll arrange it or whatever.” But that was just me wanting validation then to say, oh, thanks so much. I’m so kind of you.

Amanda Hill Ryall

“Well, you’re so organized, Amanda!” And that is a positive thing to be organized. But that’s all I was. Underneath that facade there was a shy, scared little girl who was terrified to getting told off. I believed I wasn’t good enough to be fitted anywhere. And it was a story I developed when teachers and parents told me off. Or because I couldn’t read when I was aged eight. And I’m a teacher now, and I say it to the children quite openly.

They say “What do you mean you couldn’t mean, you couldn’t read until you were eight? I’m six and I can read.”

And I say “I know. And great. But I couldn’t. It was done in a different way then. But look at me now.”

Amanda Hill Ryall

It’s rather like you can say to parents. And I say this to children because I think visual stories are very important. You know, when you were a toddler and you were just starting, you’re falling over. And then you got up again and you fell over again. You got up again, fell over again. Do you think your mom said, “Oh, you look you’ve fallen over three times. You’re not a walker. You better stop.”

of course they didn’t. It’s like when you’re starting handwriting, or new math thing, or a new project and you make a mistake. So why are you being so hard on yourself?

Amanda Hill Ryall

Practice, practice, practice. Learn from things that go wrong. Have a laugh about them. Be kind to yourself. Be compassionate.

Okay, that way it didn’t work out. Let’s try something else.

Growing on Your Emotional Journey

Catherine Wilde

Yeah, that’s that growth mindset versus loving the fixed mindset.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Yes. And it depends on how our parents bring us up. Because I know in my generation it was very result driven. You must go to University. You must get O levels. And I wasn’t even up to that level at that stage. And my mum says, “O levels are ordinary, Amanda. And you’re not even ordinary. You’re below ordinary.”

And she didn’t mean that. She was trying to inspire me. But it didn’t work. And so it’s literally the words we use have such an effect, not just the children but two friends, family.

And you know your closest relationships and family are the people that you give out the most to. But really all you’re doing, that what you’re giving out to is just your upset with yourself. The part of your child that’s not been healed. And that’s who you need to sit with.

Amanda Hill Ryall

And I’m going to be honest. It’s not easy. It’s not. Oh, I sit with myself and I’ll cure myself. No, it’s literally. Oh, this doesn’t feel good and rather go, oh, I’ll go do something else. Just stay sitting. Just stay breathing. Use your breath to connect to your body. Because what I’ve worked out is your body speaks louder than any words you use.

Catherine Wilde

Yeah. And sitting with our emotions and our thoughts and everything is pretty uncomfortable at first, mostly because we’ve been avoiding it for so long.

Amanda Hill Ryall

And we haven’t been shown how to do it.

Catherine Wilde

One beautiful thing that you talked about was when you do sit with your emotion, it has a chance to give its message to you, and it’ll dissipate. It will leave. And so it’s not forever. So sitting with that uncomfortableness, it’s okay. It will dissipate.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Absolutely. You are the guest house and your emotions. It’s just a little visitor.

Catherine Wilde

You’ve been on this beautiful journey of healing and doing inner child work, if you could go back in time, what would you tell yourself? What message would you share with her?

Amanda Hill Ryall

I would say, “Amanda, you’re beautiful and amazing. Just as you are, just as you are. You do not need to change to become anything other than who you were born to be.”

“Yes, people will tell you. You need to do this. You need to do that. That is their expectation. What makes you smile? What makes you happy? What is your purpose in life?”

Amanda Hill Ryall

Because I think all souls came here with a purpose. We took on this body and we’ve got to find it. And I’ve realized now that it’s connection, and I wanted that so much.

But I was just too shy. But if I’d said that to myself, I would have started believing and trusting myself. And through that love would have come because it was already there would have come overflowing from me.

And nothing anybody would have said or done would have hurt me, because I’d have been solid in who I am standing up for, what I think. And what I’ve realized is some people will love you no matter what you do. Some people will dislike you no matter what you do. And the other third. Well, they don’t mind either way.

Catherine Wilde

I love that. So what would you say is the biggest gift you’ve gotten from doing this inner child work?

Amanda Hill Ryall

I’ve come home to me. Because I’ll be very honest. When I was depressed and I had post natal depression after Alessandro. And I even said to my husband, “Just go take him and go find somebody worthy.”

But what I’ve realized is that I am a lovely person inside and outside. I realized that I have got this fountain of love inside me that I was just too terrified to tap into. I was scared of love.

And I know I’m going to grow even more. But  I feel safe with me. It’s as simple as that. And when somebody feels safe and there’s no worry, there’s no fear. You can be just what you are in the moment.

Before, I was always regret of the past or what’s going to happen next. And I’ve got to control it. No, it’s just now. I’m safe here with me, and I’m loving the body. It might not be what people say it should look like, but it’s my body. It’s my journey. It’s my life. It’s my choice.

Catherine Wilde

These are beautiful words. And thank you for sharing all that. I think hearing other people’s stories in this way helps so much, because I think a lot of times we feel alone in our journey. And we feel like we’re the only ones.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Totally. Thinking that way or feeling that way. Because I did feel so empty. I had a big hole. And in my day. So when my parents wanted me to get married, they said, “You’ve got to find a person to complete you.” Like the jigsaw piece. Like you’ve got something wrong with you until you meet, then you’re whole.

No. I was always whole. It’s just a bit damaged around the edges. And I had made such a thick barrier around my heart, my soul, so nobody could see me.

And I was scared that if I let that barrier go, there’d be nothing inside because I’ve never ventured to come home to me. But children are home with themselves from to the age three. And then as soon as we put them into institutions and society’s way they start losing that. Why are we doing that to ourselves?

Catherine Wilde

Yeah. And I think that wall that you’re talking about building is this thing we do to try to protect ourselves. But you mentioned connection before, and that’s when we start to heal that wall and we can connect with our inner child, we’re able to connect and love other people, too.

Amanda Hill Ryall

Yes. And it’s that unconditional love rather than saying, “I’ll love you. If you do this for me.” as an exchange. Which is the normal that people have. You do this for me. You scratch my back. I’ll scratch your back.

But actually, when you’re full inside, it’s just a beautiful feeling. You just think you just want to give to other people with no expectation, no gift. And actually, what I’ve worked out in that space, I’m being very abundant rather than being in scarcity. And I just have so much to give. But because I’m solid in myself, I’m not running on empty anymore.

Catherine Wilde

Yes. Thank you so much for this conversation. I absolutely loved it.

Amanda Hill Ryall

It’s amazing.

Catherine Wilde

Yeah. Can you let us know where we can find you online?

Amanda Hill Ryall

Absolutely. So I now have my own web page, so it’s www.amandahryall.com. I’m on Instagram @amandaryallhill. And my books are available on Amazon.

Catherine Wilde

Awesome, and I will include those in the show notes so everybody can find you. Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?

Amanda Hill Ryall

I just want everybody or your listeners to realize – You are enough. Don’t listen to your voice, and it’s usually what you’ve been told as a child or a teenager again and again by different people. Thank you. But what you think of me is none of my business. Because what people are saying is usually a reflection of how they feel about themselves. Sit with yourself. Love yourself. Be yourself. And come back home.

Catherine Wilde

Thank you so much. Amanda.
