Emotions are to be channeled or expressed. Every emotion in our body has a meaning, there aren’t bad or good emotions, every one has a reason to exist.
There are consequences if you express your emotions in a wrong way. If you got angry with your spouse, and you say things you would regret later, then you have to live with the consequences of expressing your anger in that way.
If you yell at your boss because you got mad at him, there is a chance you get fired, and live the consequences of your reaction to anger.
If you express your emotions the wrong way, you may not like the consequences of your acts. But even worst than expressing your emotions the wrong way is to repress the emotions.
The meaning of repress is to press it again, in this case pressing it again to the inside of the body, which means not letting it out. Some call it eating the emotion, and they are right in a way, you are eating the expression of the emotion to the inside.
Is like yelling to yourself instead of yelling to your boss, or saying things you’ll regret to you instead of your spouse.
As we talked before, every emotion has a purpose, and a chemical reaction in your body. When you reprehend an emotion, let’s say anger or resentment, then your body is not able to release the chemicals in your body released by the felling of the emotion. Those chemicals are completely harmless to your body if they are released properly (your body knows exactly how to do that), but when you repress the emotion, you are not letting your body release those chemicals, and residuals of those chemicals, are going to stay in every cell of your body, until they find a way out.
If they accumulate over and over again, eventually they find a way out. Most of the times they find a way out int the form of illness. Accumulated resentment in the body is manifested later in the form of cancer.
Repressed fear is later manifested as stress, and if you keep adding and adding stress it may manifest as almost any kind of illness, from a cough to a depression.
But there is a way out. One of the most easy and effective ones I have found is TAPPING(EFT),Which I will explain in my next post.
God Bless You.
