Do you ever find yourself retelling a story and then feeling the same emotions of anger, fear, sadness, shame, envy or confusion that you had when the occurrence actually happened? Do you ever feel like your past experiences are keeping a door closed to joy, love, patience or relaxation?
So often I find myself lost in a thought that enhances an emotion that then triggers a physical response. For me my physical response usually manifests as an upset stomach, muscle tension in my shoulders neck and head or an anxious jittery like sensation that makes it very challenging to focus on what I have in front of me. So if the incident has already occurred and is not a part of my future why is it still showing up for me today?
Whether we are aware of it or not, there is a constant communication happening connecting our experiences to how our daily lives are lived. To understand the relationship between our minds, emotions and physical conditions is to understand the laws of being human. We are dynamic organisms pulsing with multiple rhythmic energy lines all showing up in a physical way shaping our unique selves. These energy lines are responsible for digesting all that we see, feel, hear, taste and smell. Sometimes however digestion slows down creating blockages and restrictions that suffocate our bodies turning into illness. Other times we cannot hold onto the nutrients of the things we are digesting leaving us open and susceptible to outside influences that may be harmful creating illness.
Any type of dis-ease we experience is the manifestation of the trauma we have been accumulating since our time in utero. Trauma even as small as daily stress has a huge impact on the fluidity of our lives and heavily influences what we attract into our personal worlds.
Empowerment is to know that we have the ability to change our situations and then the courage to take action to set these changes in motion. Healing can only occur when we are willing to give our stories space to be in their own container and to believe that we are worthy of thriving to create new stories peace and ease.
Healing brings us to a place where we have faith in our inner spirit dancing with the divine macrocosm of the universe.
