We are all born with the ability to freely and openly share our emotions.
So, even though someone is “emotionally unavailable”, he or she still has feelings. It’s all about how we say it or if we choose to express it.The problem with suppressing feelings is that it is harmful to one’s overall health.
Some people tend not to share their feelings for a variety of reasons, including the negative emotions they are experiencing, because of their desire to fit in and to win love.
We bury feelings we don’t want to deal with at some point.
We can go through life oblivious to our feelings, believing that they don’t affect us until something drastic happens in our lives, at which point we remember that those emotions have been there all along, attempting to escape.It’s at these times that old wounds will resurface, causing us to crumble.
Fear, guilt, and rage are common emotions that we bury deep. We are unable to process what is happening, accept the feelings, and transmit them through the body and mind while we are emotionally overwhelmed.
Instead, we bury them deep inside ourselves, and we end up burying ourselves as well. They will, however, still be there.
These unresolved feelings get stuck in the body, where they fester, draining our resources, causing mental imbalance, and possibly making us physically ill.
I’ll give you some pointers on how to deal with trapped emotions and energy blocks in your body:
1. Recognize and Experience Them
It’s difficult, but it must be done. You have to acknowledge and sense the emotion in your body.
This is where you’ll use the power of mindfulness to pay attention to what’s going on in your body, embrace it, and experience it completely without judgment.
Human pain, according to Buddhist teachings, is caused by aversion and resistance to what is happening.
As a result, recognition is a liberating experience.
You must feel these trapped feelings in order to cure them.
To process and incorporate the emotion into your experience, you must first experience it.
I suggest that you practice mindfulness to improve your ability to recognize and observe physical stimuli associated with your emotions.
2. Start Taking Action
Getting your body going can be one of the last things on your mind when it comes to letting go of negative feelings, but it works.It doesn’t have to be a formal workout; Simply get moving.
Moving causes motion in the body, which aids in the release of energetic blocks. You can also do this when you’re having trouble connecting with your emotions.
Instead of getting into a fight with someone when you’re angry, get your body going.
Walk around the block to relieve your frustration, or if you want to feel ten times better, do something that will make you sweat and release the pent-up energies in your body, such as a sport you love.
3. Write It Down
The value of journaling cannot be overstated.
However, I’ve met a lot of people who think it’s stupid to start journaling without first trying it.
To be honest, I was apprehensive about journaling at first because I didn’t see how writing down my thoughts could support me.
I was skeptical of its “powers”, but I kept hearing about it, so I decided to give it a try.
I didn’t feel anything for the first few days… I didn’t feel lighter until it became a part of my routine, and then I felt lighter every time I dumped my thoughts on paper.
Journaling is a time-honored method that continues to be successful.
For about 15 minutes, I recommend writing down whatever is on your mind. It’s normal to be skeptical at first, but trust me when I say that you should try it.
You’ll get to the root of your limiting belief after a few minutes, and you’ll be able to approach it from there properly.
Remember that these bottled-up feelings will remain with you until you confront them.
It will be a long process, but it will be worthwhile.So, wave goodbye to trapped emotions using these 3 steps!
