Have you ever heard the term 'Feelings buried alive never die'? Ever wondered what happens to those overwhelming feelings that we have suppressed during our lifetimes, because we just didn't know what else to do?
As I continue to work with the most resilient, honest, brave and inquiring people, it's made me realise that each of us has had situations in our lives that, from the perspective of an adult, are no big deal. Little (or big) incidents in childhood that have made us feel ashamed, guilty, and not good enough. As a child we were defined by other's comments, their beliefs about us.
We were told we were too fat, too thin, too shy, too loud, couldn't sing, too stupid, couldn't paint, couldn't run, couldn't play sport and many other hurtful things that our innocent minds just couldn't deal with, so we believed them...our little bodies held on to the emotions and locked them in.
As we grew into adults, we held onto these beliefs, and situations in our lives kept reminding us that we really were, too fat, too loud, worthless, etc. We came to expect that everyone saw this in us and we just kept carrying that baggage around...forgetting who we truly were.
in a sense our rational mind 'sorts it out' and seemingly makes some sort of sense of it...so that we can keep functioning. We suppress the emotions, without feeling them fully, without resolving them. These trapped emotions can eventually cause illness, disease and chronic pain. Yes...it may be a new concept to some, but there is an emotional aspect to everything. Think about how your body feels when you are in a chronic state of stress, when you are in the fight, flight or freeze state. Where do you feel that sensation?
If this resonates with you, then know that there is a way to release these emotions, safely and gently with HeartSpeak.
I love combining HeartSpeak with Reflexology as they work in synergy on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of our being.
