Trapped Emotions Are Trapped Energies
As you live through the days and years of your life, you are continually experiencing emotions of one sort or another. Life can be difficult and emotions can sometimes feel overwhelming. All of us experience negative emotions at times. Most of us would rather forget some of these challenges, but unfortunately, the influence of these events can stay with us in the form of trapped emotions.
Emotions do not always process completely. At times, instead of simply experiencing the emotion and then moving on, the energy of that emotion somehow becomes “trapped” withing the body. This energy can potentially cause significant physical and emotional stress.
Most people are amazed to find out that their “emotional baggage” is more literal than they had imagined. Trapped emotions actually consist of well-defined energies. Although they are not visible, they are very real.
Not the kind that fly away when you let go, but the dark, heavy balloons that drag behind you and never seem to pop. When they snag and yank on the tough times and triggers in your walk of life, they make you flinch / react / stop your forward movement / or make you want to quit all together. These many balloons attach themselves to your insides, tying the string tight. They can be as large as boulders or as small as peas, but the yank hurts non-the-less.
