Being human means feeling emotions. (E) motion = energy in motion. To stay healthy, let emotional energy wash through you like a wave. Do not hold on, resist or deny the energy. Welcome it as a response to life and let it move through by expressing it in the moment it arises.
You may argue that there are negative emotions that should not be expressed. From our early childhood, we have been taught to be nice and polite. So the idea of expressing all our so-called negative emotions seems foreign and impossible. We fear disapproval or abandonment if we dare speak the truth about what we are thinking or feeling.
Instead of thinking of emotions as either negative or positive, let us view them as energy that moves at different speeds. We call the speed of moving energy its frequency. If energy moves at a slow speed, it has a low frequency. If it moves at a faster speed, it has a higher frequency.
The emotional energy of anger, for example, moves slowly and has a low frequency and it does not feel good in our body. When anger arises and you do not express it, it gets trapped in your body and affects you physically and mentally. If you do not express your emotions, they start accumulating in and around your body.
You may not feel them all the time, but these accumulated emotions can burst out from you during stressful times. Often these accumulated toxic feelings change your genetic structure, causing illness and toxic thinking.
You learned how to deal with your emotions as a child, by observing your family. Everything you observed and absorbed in your early childhood went into to your subconscious mind. Since this programming is subconscious, you do not have conscious control of your reaction. You respond automatically in a way that is not aligned with the love that your heart truly wants to give and receive.
Constantly reacting in a way that is out of alignment with your true loving nature causes you to feel stressed out. Unexpressed accumulated anger can turn into depression. You may try coping with depression, but all your efforts go in vain. For this, you actually need to know how to manage stress.
One of the best ways of managing stress and coping with depression is emotional-mental detoxification. The process involves the detoxification of low frequency emotions and thought-patterns that depress your immune system, causing illness.
Subconscious beliefs may not allow you to express your true emotions. You often live a pretending life being nice and happy to others. There is anger within you but the desired social attitude makes you to suppress it, which often converts into feelings of resentment, anger and depression.
The principle of emotional detoxification
After going through the process of emotional-mental detoxification, you will return to a state of balance and well-being with a better ability to focus and feel confident. You will behave as the real YOU, leaving behind that artificial life imposed by other people.
When you purify your toxic thoughts and emotions, you will be free to express your True Self and live your true soul purpose.
