I used to walk around trying to be happy and positive all of the time. I would say that I had no enemies; that I didn't hate, or even dislike anyone. I would deny angry feelings, only allowing myself to be sad. And any sadness I felt was not allowed to stay, I needed to feel happy.
I believed that by having a positive outlook, that I could attract happiness into my life. I had faith in the Law of Attraction! I thought that if I felt bad, I would attract bad things into my life. What I didn't understand was that by quashing my negative emotions, I was creating an energetic signature that would keep me from achieving the positivity and outcomes that I desired.
When we numb [hard feelings], we numb joy, we numb gratitude, we numb happiness. Brené Brown
Emotions are energy; and energy is always in motion. When charged emotions are stopped, physically swept aside in exchange for another emotion, the energy charge does not go away. It seeps into the body's cellular structure, creating physical changes that can bring dis-ease into the body.
So when I swept aside my bad feelings, I was embedding the signature of that emotion into my physical body, creating cellular imbalance. And I was embedding the signature of that emotion into my energy body; diminishing the chance of attracting good things into my life.
So how does one achieve a high vibration needed to attract goodness into their life, while allowing all of their emotions? The secret is in acknowledging, processing, and releasing every emotion. This takes an awareness of what you are feeling, as well as figuring out where the feelings are manifesting in your body.
For me, things started to change when I started daily meditation. One day I ran across a guided meditation that led me to explore several feelings. Bingo! I had discovered the key to unlocking not only my feelings, but also my life.
The beauty of this guided meditation is in truly feeling emotions. Entitled "Seven Living Words", you are asked to remember a time you felt happy, really feel into the feeling, then let go of the thought and keep feeling the feeling. Then you cycle through several words, and when each word is said, you are to feel the feeling, not think the thought. By practicing this meditation, you can become proficient at not only identifying your feeling but also locating where you "feel" the feeling. With this knowledge, you can now move forward and process your emotions. You can find this meditation by signing up for Level One on masteringalchemy.com
If you are not into meditation, or you believe that your head won't allow you to sit in quietude, then another way you can connect with your feelings is through music. Today I put on headphones and listened to 8D music; I was swamped with a number of feelings as the music swirled around, massaging my brain. You can find 8D music playlists on Spotify, Soundcloud, or YouTube.
Once you know how to feel your feelings, a three-step process can get you on the road back to well-being. The key is to acknowledge the feeling, feel the feeling, then release the feeling. There are many ways to do this, including journaling, scream therapy, or doing an allowing exercise. For emotions that are happening right now, the releasing can be as simple as moving through the steps - feel it, name it, feel into it, then let it go. For embedded emotions from childhood, further intervention may be needed. I have had great success using several healing modalities, such as hypnotic Rapid Release Transformational therapy, energy-based Heart-Wall Healing, and Quantum Energy Healing. Energy healing modalities help unlock embedded emotions to clear both your energy field and your physical cells.
Wishing you a life of wellness.
