Can you release your own emotional blocks?
Can you release your own emotional blockages?
It’s a good question that…so I thought I’d try and answer it from my own experience as someone who does her own self-healing but also helps others to heal.
The first thing to say is that emotions get trapped and stuck in your energy field every single day. Period. That’s all of us whether you’re a trained and experienced healer or your Jane Bloggs going about your daily business. You can be mindful, conscious and hot to trot but this’ll still happen to you because you are HUMAN and that’s a fact of life. Nobody is immune to the stuff life throws at you and we all experience human emotion.
The next thing I want to say builds on this point. There’s stuff that we are conscious of; For example, “that person said something that upset me.” There’s also stuff that we are not conscious of so we can have a reflex reaction to something and we may not even be aware of it. This is what’s known as being triggered.
Now sometimes when you’re triggered, you’ll blame the person that triggered you. Other times when you’re triggered, you’ll realise that they’ve activated something that was already in you to begin with. This is when we start taking responsibility for our own vibration when we notice that our reactions are “our stuff” and not the other persons.
There will be things that you were unaware of that you become aware of. There will be things that you are unaware of that you still don’t see. Some of these things can be so automatic and they are intrinsically linked to what we believe about ourselves.
I’ll give you an example. The other day I was talking to a client about POISE – about being composed and self-assured and how this is key to finding your confidence. She said, “I’ve never had poise” and continued on. When she stopped talking, I asked her to think about what she had just said and she couldn’t remember. I relayed the words back to her and she was like, “Oh my god! I didn’t even realise I’d said that.” This shows how deep these beliefs are if you are unaware of them leaving your mouth.
You can help yourself a great deal by making yourself aware of what is leaving your mouth. What are the patterns? These beliefs tend to start with “I always” or “I never” and we all do it, including me. It tells us a lot about what we think about ourselves.
There are other beliefs that go a lot deeper than this though and these are the ones that manifest the not so nice experiences in life. These are deeply set and for me, these are the ones that healing helps me to bring to the surface.
My healer sees in me things that I am unaware of myself. My healer points out my patterns and makes me realise what it is that is holding me back. I’ve had to really push myself through the fear to overcome some of these beliefs and still sometimes find myself racking my brain to work out the answer.
That’s the point at which I realise that it’s likely to be subconscious and then I’ll do some Emotion Code on myself and the answer becomes apparent as I process the work. You can clear what you become aware of, but some things will remain there to be discovered. The subconscious is like a treasure trove of learning really.
If you would like to know what you don’t know, please give me a call. I love digging for treasure!
