We are Energy (Spirit, etc.), not just flesh. The flesh is matter, energy condensed into a form visible to the naked eye. The fundamental principle of Energy is that it can never be destroyed but can be transformed from one state to another.
Energy goes where attention goes.
E-Motion is Energy-In-Motion
Each emotion has an energetic frequency, as shown in the Map of Consciousness by David R Hawkins in his book Power versus Force.
As emotional beings for the simple reason that we ‘feel’ the waves of energy! The elemental symbol of emotion is Water. It has been proven that human biology is made up of 70% of water. Studies indicate that we store emotions in our biology; if not addressed promptly, they result in psychosomatic and physical dis-ease. The meaning of dis-ease is where the movement of Energy has been stunted, stuck, or stored over a period.
What happens when past emotional trauma is experienced?
We have an emotional response or reaction that triggers past emotional trauma. We play the event or scenario repeatedly as though it were real in our mind/experience until we are exhausted to a point where we either avoid ‘feeling’ the emotion because it is too intense, or we may choose to heal.
And, yes! We do have a choice.
If we choose to heal past emotional trauma are four key things to be aware of that assist on our journey towards physical-mental-emotional liberation.
Awareness of the emotional trauma
To begin to transform and heal, we need to be aware of what we need to change and heal. Shift happens when there is awareness, and with knowledge comes insight. We cannot effectively heal and transform what we are not aware of.
Acceptance of the emotional trauma
Acceptance of our emotional trauma and the associated effects on our psyche and well-being is key to the transformational and healing process; we cannot address what we have not yet or entirely accepted within ourselves.
Willingness to let go of the emotional trauma
This process is key for healing; otherwise, we keep repeating similar patterns like a never-ending spiral or loop that keeps us stuck in the same old story. Confirmation within Self that we are done with the old emotional trauma or story and ready to let go.
This is the culmination point and the readiness to begin to release in surrender. Surrender here means we have exhausted the emotional spectrum of the trauma – think of an elastic band when stretched to the maximum or a dry leaf on a tree that is ready to fall off the branch.
Although, healing begins before this phase with an intention.
Emotional pain is not something that should be hidden away and never spoken about. There is truth in your pain; there is growth in your pain, but only if its first brought out into the open.”
