Spiritual Healing Through the Emotional Body
Why are feelings and emotions important? They are our internal compass speaking to us. You see we are non physical beings and our soul connection starts in the higher dimensions and then as we become physically focused here, our “hook-ups” so to speak with these non-physical energies start primarily through the feelings and emotions. Then we have our thoughts within our mind, and then we have our physical bodies. All of these components interact with one another energetically and constitute the “individual” that we are here in this physical dimension.
So why are our feelings and emotions so important? They are our most immediate hook up to our higher-self and are the most immediate way to communicate with our higher-self.
How are feelings different than emotions? Feelings are a communication from this higher part of us and they can work in conjunction with our sensory outputs within our physical bodies. We might physically feel a push or a pull within us that is subtle, a contraction or expansion so to speak. But we also might see or hear our higher self speak to us as well that is accompanied with this contraction or expansive feeling.
Emotions, on the other hand, are a more passive or fleeting experience that is like a burst of energy. Our brains contain neurotransmitters that allow the release or sensation of emotions. But our physical bodies and our spiritual bodies are connected! These emotions show us where we have a strong current of energy flowing, energetic momentum so to speak. For instance you might feel a moment where you experience really intense joy, or really intense anger. Both are strong signals that we have a current of energy occurring within us, as well as a communication that is happening within your higher being into this physical dimension. When we experience a lot of these “good” feeling or high vibrational emotions, then you are on track and moving toward your desires which is awesome. But if we are experiencing negative emotion frequently then we need to begin to look deeper.
It is so important that we allow ourselves to sit with all of our feelings and emotions and allow the full somatic experience of being in the full feeling state when we experience a very strong emotion. Because this emotion - as a stream of energy needs to be fully experienced and felt in order for the energy to be fully released. Most of the time people will feel a strong emotion coming on and cut themselves off from it, and this will just stuff the energy into the emotional body to be dealt with at a later time. Those emotions are going to have to come up and be processed sooner or later, and so it’s super important that we always allow ourselves to sit with the emotions and to be fully present with them.
When we stuff emotions into our emotional body, they create resistance. When we go into strong state of resistance to what we are actually feeling then we can have these emotions come out in various ways, we see this a lot with addicts. Addicts are highly resistant to feeling parts of themself that want to be felt, so they turn to numbing addictions like drugs, alcohol, food, drama etc to help them perpetuate the control that they want to have over not allowing themselves to feel these feelings.
You see when we have these intense negative emotions and feelings, a communication is occurring where we need to look deeper within ourself. What part of us are we abandoning by trying to avoid feeling the feeling? Our higher-self would not be alerting us with the emotion or feeling if there wasn’t something that needed to be seen. It could be something as simple as a self limiting belief, like "I am not enough" that is creating that negative emotion. Likely this is tied to a trauma that we experienced as a child. Or it could be something really big like, "Do not trust this person because they are dangerous," that we really need to listen to! Regardless, if it is related to something big or small, the communication still needs to be addressed and we need to come to an understanding of what part of ourself wants to communicate with us.
As we allow all parts of ourself to be integrated, we are thus able to flow in the direction of what it is that we really love and enjoy, because we aren’t in direct contrast or have opposing forces within us that creates split energy. When we are in this flow, due to the law of attraction, the universe brings us all cooperative components that are necessary to assist us. Miracles happen daily and we are in true abundance!
So what’s the deal with split energy and negative emotions? Imagine someone who has all his life thought that he wanted to be a pilot - but this was directly going against what his higher-self wanted him to experience in this lifetime. Every time he goes toward the path of being a pilot he is going to experience resistance because his higher self knows that this is not his highest path. Yet he ignores it and ignores it and instead does what his mind wants because he believes this is what he is supposed to do because pilots make a lot of money. But his soul is screaming for him to become a musician, which is what he loved doing as a child but wrote this off years ago because it did not seem practical. Likely this man will go through many scenarios where he feels strong negative emotion. Perhaps he even begins to stuff these emotions down and turns to alcohol to soothe himself and perpetuate the resistance. To heal this situation, this man then would need to stop and allow himself to fully feel the intense anger and frustration when the anger would be triggered within him, likely when he was thinking thoughts about becoming a piolet. While being present with this emotion, he might link this anger back to a scenario or a trauma that he experienced in his childhood within the relationships with his parents or peers that caused him to then come into the belief system that he must be a pilot. For instance, when he was a child his father may have yelled at him for not getting good grades in school. He learned to conform to his fathers wishes and to societal standards which was thus creating the negative emotion within him. By allowing himself to sit with these strong emotions, and have a communication within himself in regards to the why behind the emotions, he can get to this understanding. When he allows himself to fully feel this anger and then see that he doesn't have to be angry and that he doesn't have to put so much pressure on himself to succeed or conform, this allows the resolutions to take place within the emotional body.
This man then might slowly come into the realization that “hey maybe I actually don’t want to be a pilot.” Now because he is no longer resisting parts of himself he is then able to feel more and be more present with his internal guidance system. His internal guidance prompts him to feel attracted to listening to some of his favorite music or melodies online one day, which then another day inspires him to pick up the guitar and start strumming. He feels inspired to then play the guitar and record this online. Then suddenly this video that he created goes viral and instantly he is FLOWING downstream towards his passion, and in as little as a week that this took for him after he did his emotional integration work, he recognizes he spent years pushing against himself trying to become a pilot when all parts of him was not even close to being on board with him to allow this path to be easy and effortless. He begins to attract resources like money and new friendships of people who support him on this new path. And this all happened because he stopped resisting himself, allowed himself to feel the negative emotions, get to the root cause of those negative emotions, when they were stuffed into the emotional body, which thus freed him to being able to become more attuned to the good feeling sensations that were offering him hints that would allow him to move toward his highest path.
You see, as his emotional integration occurred, he was thus able to move towards his highest excitement much more quickly because he became more clear within himself. He wasn’t so “bogged down” so to speak by the splits within him that were causing the resistance and negative emotions. This then allowed an exponential increase in his own rate of expansion because he was able to very quickly manifest the cooperative components because all parts of him were onboard.
Our heart is a huge source of this communication and we can have conversations even directly with our heart about what emotions we are experiencing and why. This is our most direct hook up to our higher-self. Remember nothing is ever random, no emotion or feeling is ever random. Our feelings are our intuition speaking to us constantly. Do not dismiss a feeling ever -there is always a reason why we feel certain feelings. And often if we are able to feel a feeling and trust that feeling fully and then take action based on that feeling, it allows miracles to occur and also allows us to flow around roadblocks that might have been “detours” so to speak on our journey. Our feelings are our intuition guiding us down our highest path!
I envision in our future that we are able to teach this to our children, and as parents we allow our children to flow in the direction of their desires without trying to manipulate or control them into what we think is best for them. Children should be allowed to naturally resonate towards what is exciting to them. It's all the old paradigm belief systems here on this planet that typically hinder this process and block the child of their natural flow. Children are like pure vessels of source and they are almost always naturally attuned to their own emotions, inner guidance system, and feeling body! All we have to do is set them free, and allow their inner genius to speak through them and naturally resonate towards their highest path quickly.
So let's allow ourselves to feel all the feels, and allow our feelings to speak to us! They have a lot to say, you see. Our abundance is at the other end of allowing all feelings and parts of ourselves to be seen, heard, felt, integrated and then to flow towards more of what our own expansion brings us.
