Sarah @ Lightworker Energies – Are you Really Feeling your Emotions? – 3-1-16
I felt the urge to write another post today as there is so much going on energetically at the moment! All this energy is causing a lot of stuff to come up for many of us and I want you to know you are not alone in whatever you are going through.
We have just had the Spring Equinox (20th March) and are entering another Eclipse on the 23rd March, so this is an intense energy period!
You may also feel like you are in limbo or in a kind of forced waiting period, where you know it is not you who is blocking anything, but nothing is really moving forward! This is all due to the current energy. We are being asked (in a not so polite way) to stop and take stock! To understand what is needed and what is not. Once we get past Easter, things should start moving again a little more easily.
We are releasing and clearing old patterns and behaviours. We are all being shown what we need to heal and let go of right now. This is happening for everyone, so you may have found yourself and/or others around you getting angry, impatient, annoyed, depressed, frustrated… the list goes on as this energy is stirring up old wounds!
Know it is OKAY to have these emotions. A lot of us think that because we are following our spiritual path that we shouldn’t get angry. I used to think this, but now I realise that it is natural and a part of bringing ourselves back into our own power once we release it! What is not good is repressing the anger or frustration and letting it fester until at some point we explode! If you think of a small child who can’t get something he wants, he may start to cry and this may lead into a full-blown tantrum with a lot of wailing, stomping of feet, banging of fists and a bright red face! However, after about 5 mins he has calmed down and is happily playing with his toys again! There is no repressed emotions afterwards and boy oh boy did he FEEL them!!
We have learnt that it is not socially acceptable to let out our feelings or really express them, especially in certain situations. So, we may feel really angry at someone or a situation and we may say a few words, but then we push the rest down and mutter to ourselves about how unfair or how unhappy we are. We may then push them down even further and tell ourselves that we shouldn’t feel like this as we are on our spiritual path and we should really be more tolerant, loving and/or kind! Does any of this sound familiar??
I am not suggesting that we start having a tantrum and banging our fists on the table, but I am suggesting that we really take the time to FEEL our emotions so we can let them go immediately! The amount of clearing and releasing we are all doing is mainly to do with repressed emotions. We haven’t often allowed ourselves to really FEEL our emotions at the time of an event that has impacted us in some way. Therefore, these emotions have built up layers within us that we are now spending a lot of time releasing and clearing!
The current energy is bringing it all up to be seen, felt and heard! We are being shown at every opportunity what we need to heal and all the signs are there for us to see. We just need to take note and then FEEL!!!
The way I feel and release my emotions is like this, which I really hope is a useful tool for you too:
Find a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed. Get comfy, relax and take a few long deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. If you feel the urge to make a sound as you breathe out then do so as it is your body’s way of letting go! As you do this deep breathing you will feel your shoulders automatically relax and drop. Once you are in a nice space and feel relaxed you can begin feeling your feelings!
Ask yourself, either out loud or in your head, “What do I need to release in order to move forward?” You can change the words or ask yourself a different question if this doesn’t feel good, so have a play with what works for you. Then just be still. Be quiet so you can hear what YOU need to say to yourself! If your ego or mind pop up, visualise a door slamming shut on them and just say NO!
Within this peace, you should feel something. You may already know what feeling you need to release and then this will become more apparent. You may have no idea, so asking this question of yourself will bring up a feeling that needs to be released first.
Once an emotion pops up, now is your chance to really FEEL it and experience it in its totality. You can take all the time you need to feel this emotion. When you start to really feel it, you may find old memories come into your mind, which relate to this emotion. Let them. Allow everything to be felt. Your ego will want to tell you to stop being silly or say that we shouldn’t feel this way as we are good, clever, kind etc. Remember if this happens, SLAM that DOOR in its face! Then get back to FEELING the emotion. You will find the emotion starts to come up and out. It basically starts to dissipate because we are not giving it any more power over us and we are not trying to squash it back down!
You can do this with any feeling, even fear. This takes some courage as I have done some of my own fear and it was a little scary sitting in it, but I can tell you that it is totally worth it when you feel it disappearing!
I know that you have the courage to face what is going on inside yourself. How do I know this? I know this because you are reading this right now, which means you want to know if you are really feeling your emotions, otherwise you wouldn’t have got this far. So what are you waiting for?!
