Yes our bodies hold old memories as stuck, gooey emotions.
Have you ever wondered what happened to the pain, anger and shame you felt after a distressing and disturbing event. Or the pain and shock in going through a divorce, or the scarring and terrifying impact from an accident.
All these feelings and emotions put us into a state of stress.
When we are in a state of stress and fear, we also have doubt. We have lots of questions and alot of these questions go unanswered.
Fear contracts our bodies and we are in the fight and flight response. We store the emotions or the events safetly into the organs and muscles of our body thinking that they will help us to stay alert and aware so that we never have to go through that kind of event again. Unfortunately it means that we are now carrying around baggage that holds us stuck in the past.
I was reminded of exactly this today as in a session with a healer she reminded me that we are slowly going back in time, clearing out each event and emotion as we go. This also means that our bodies need some time to adjust and grow in a new way.
If you have old events and emotions lingering, I encourage you to take some time to work with a healer, who can slowly and gently help you to clear out the old events so you may move forward feeling free and happy.
When we get out of flight and fight our bodies can do amazing things but firstly we must get into the parasympathetic state of rest and relaxation.
