The Impact of Trapped Emotions

Somewhere deep inside, we all have trapped emotions. During the past year I’ve gained a clearer understanding of the importance of releasing subconscious Trapped Emotions for our emotional and physical well being. My goal in this blog is to share this information to help you better understand why you feel the discomforts that you do, why you experience repeated undesirable behaviors or observe these behaviors in other people.
According to Whole Health Center in Bar Harbor, Maine the drama of repression, conflict and self-rejection of Trapped Emotions will not only continue to feed many of our personal dynamics, but it also will continue to be at the root of humanity’s collective social and political history of violence, oppression and self-destruction. Yet emotional healing is given minimal focus or support in today’s medical or insurance-driven models of therapy.
Trapped Emotions keep us repeating the past. When we permanently release them, we experience the ability to live in the Present Moment connected to our True Self. We are free of pain, both emotional and physical, filled with happiness and contentment.

How Trapped Emotions are Formed

By simple definition, emotion is energy in motion. When energy ceases to flow freely through our nervous system it is referred to as Trapped Emotion. The basic Trapped Emotions are fear, anger or sadness/grief.
From a psychological perspective, Trapped Emotions start forming during childhood. As a vulnerable child we experience moments of feeling overwhelmed, frightened, misunderstood, or even abused. In those unexpected moments we tend to either repress or distance ourselves from painful, embarrassing or shameful feelings that were just too much to bear. Yet, when we repress these painful feelings, we end up subconsciously abandoning a part of our Self. The desire is to stop living in the past and repeating the loop of self-abandonment.

Our Bodies Are Emotional Maps

Do you know that behind every physical ailment exists an emotional component? Once you identify the emotion and achieve resolution, your physical body eases its tension and surrenders into self-healing.
How do you know if you have Trapped Emotions? One way is to notice your body’s tensions, inflammations and pains. Our bodies become maps of our unconscious, emotional pain. Examples where common, hidden, emotions lurk include: Shoulder stiffness which may reflect a hidden fear of carrying a perceived burden; Neck tension may reflect a hidden anger in not trusting oneself; Hip tension may reflect frustration which is preventing you from of moving into something creative and meaningful; Lung and heart diseases may reflect carrying unrecognized sadness or grieving. If we ignore these hurts, our body’s messages get louder. Our Trapped Emotions amplify every seven years. Our soul is asking us, “Is this where you choose to be, with your hurting or with your freedom?”

Releasing Panic

For the first time in my life, I had panic attacks. These occurred while riding in a car after my car accident. Panic is described as, ‘a sudden, uncontrollable fear or anxiety that triggers serve physical reaction when there is no real danger or apparent cause.’ I discovered hidden underneath these reactions were layers of repressed, un-integrated emotion.
I courageously worked through the panic with help from several facilitators. My mind and soul brought forth moments when repressed emotion occurred. As I gave voice to my unconscious anger, sadness, grief and fear, I integrated aspects of myself which had been pushed aside, ignored or not valued. This work paid off in many ways, one of them is that I now feel comfortable to ride in a car.

Emotional Integration Through an Intuitive Consultation

Emotional Integration involves fully feeling our Trapped Emotions, which dissolves their power over us. As they are released from our system, we are freed from the past. There are numerous modalities that facilitate Emotional Integration. The method I use with my clients is an intuitively guided process, uniquely divined for each individual’s needs.
The soul is always guiding us toward growth, which is the ability to redefine and recreate our life. As we journey together during an Intuitive Consultation, I may be guided to an area in your body where Trapped Emotions are stored. A memory or emotion may surface related to this physically uncomfortable area.
For instance, I worked with a client who had a foot injury. I intuitively watched a scene play out when she was five years old playing with her sister. Her sister needed to leave the room. The sister said she would be back, however, after what seemed like an eternity, my client became afraid and decided to find her sister. As my client walked across the room, she stepped on a sharp toy which caused pain. My client’s fear of being left alone combined with the pain of stepping on this toy encoded this experience in her nervous system and the cellular tissue of her foot.
After her grown children left home, she began to notice her foot discomfort. She shared with me her realization of becoming an ’empty nester.’ Although she is a happy and proud mom, at a subconscious level, a repressed fear was signaling it was ready to be resolved. We did energy work guided by Spirit. During the night, she awoke drenched in sweat. The next morning as she stepped out of bed she had no foot pain.
An Intuitive Consultation could assist you with resolving your Trapped Emotions. I approach this tender process with gentleness and compassion within sacred space, so you feel safe and supported. Afterward you may feel deeply relaxed. You may experience a felt sensation of ‘real ease,’ true freedom and contentment for the first time in your adult life.
