Questions & Answers

Why do we need to clear emotions, aren’t emotions good?

Yes, be grateful that you can feel a wide range of emotions! But there are times when we’ve experienced emotions we would have rather not felt, anxiety, grief, anger, frustration, fear, even  sorrow, depression, low self-esteem, and hopelessness. Even though you may have felt them long ago they may still be creating problems for you in subtle and damaging ways. Much of our suffering is due to negative emotional energy that has become “trapped” within us and creates a form of “emotional baggage.” Sometimes emotions do not process completely and that negative energy can remain within your body. When you are free of your trapped emotions you are able to live a healthier and happier life.

How do I know if I have a trapped emotion?

Do you ever feel that you are struggling under the weight of something that you can’t quite put your finger on? Perhaps your life is not turning out as you had hoped. Perhaps your attempts to form lasting relationships never seem to work out. You may wish that certain events in your past had never happened but feel powerless to move beyond them. You may even feel that your present is somehow being held hostage by your past.

Almost everyone carries around old emotional energies from their past. Our physical bodies hold onto trapped emotions and often a simple touch can bring out a flood of emotions and memories. Massage therapists often have the experience of provoking an unexpected emotional release in a client, as the body lets go of energy it had been holding on to.

What are the benefits of freeing trapped emotions?

Getting rid of your trapped emotions can help you overcome the obstacles of your past and can bring new life to your personal relationships, can make you feel more secure and motivated, and can liberate you to create the relationships, career and life that you always wanted.

What effect do trapped emotions have on me?

Trapped emotions can cause you to make the wrong assumption, overreact to innocent remarks, misinterpret behavior, and sabotage relationships. They often create depression and anxiety, they can also interfere with the proper function of your body contributing to pain, fatigue, and illness. Releasing trapped emotions can result in profound and immediate healing.

The past is the past, why revisit it?

When a trapped emotion is released, people often experience a feeling of lightness as if a burden has been literally lifted off of them.

How can a trapped emotion cause physical pain?

The most ancient healing arts tell us that all disease is caused by an energetic imbalance in the body. Trapped emotions distort the flow of energy through the body causing lower immune function and make the body more susceptible to disease. Releasing trapped emotions cannot be viewed as a cure-all, but instead as a way to assist the body to restore health and vitality.

If you take a magnet and hold it too close to an older tube-type television screen or computer monitor, you will see a very visible distortion in the picture. This is because the magnetic field is interfering with the normal flow of electrons within the screen. If you get the magnet too close, or if you leave the magnet there long enough, it will create a permanent distortion and even ruin the screen. Trapped emotions affect the body in a similar way. Trapped emotions are a negative energy and distort the body’s tissues, just as the magnet distorts the picture on the TV screen. Distort the body’s tissues long-term, and pain and malfunction will be the result.

How does my subconscious mind know what trapped emotions I have?

Like a computer, your subconscious mind is capable of storing vast amounts of information. Everything you have ever done in your entire life has been logged in your subconscious mind. Every face you’ve ever seen is a crowd, every smell, every voice, every song, every taste, every touch and every sensation you have ever experienced has been recorded by your subconscious. Every virus, bacteria, or fungus that has ever invaded your body, all your injuries, all your thoughts and feelings, and the entire history of every cell in your body has been archived. Your subconscious is aware of any trapped emotions in your body and what effect these trapped emotions are having on your physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. Your subconscious is aware of exactly what your body needs to get well.

What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology, or muscle testing, is the most direct way to tap into the body’s innate wisdom, without interference from the conscious mind. All organisms respond to positive or negative stimuli, just as plants grow toward sunlight and away from darkness. Your body will naturally be drawn toward positive things or thoughts and repelled by negative things or ideas.

What are trapped emotions made of?

Everything in the universe is made of energy, whether that energy manifests in physical form or remains invisible. It is the particular arrangement of these energies, and their specific rates of vibration that determine how they will appear to us. At the most basic level, everything that exists is made of the same stuff – energy. Energy that we cannot see is all around us in the form of radio waves, x-rays, infrared, thought waves, and emotions. We can feel energy when it is in the form of emotions. Trapped emotions are made of energy.

Why do emotions become trapped in different parts of the body?

Trapped emotions lodge in an area of the body that’s vulnerable because of a genetic susceptibility, an injury, or nutritional deficiency. Sometimes the location will be used as communication from your subconscious. For example, you feel frustrated and overwhelmed as if you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. In that case, the trapped emotion may lodge in one of your shoulders.

What is the human energy field?

Throughout history as many as 97 diverse and separate cultures have a belief in the human energy field. The Hindus understood the vital life giving force which permeates and gives life to all things to be prana, an understanding going back 5,000 years. The Chinese taught that this energy is called chi and understood that if the chi is imbalanced within an individual, the result is poor health. Some believe that the human energy field is the spirit that exists within each one of us.

Kirlian photography, discovered in 1939 by a Russian electrical technician named Semyon Kirlian, uses pulsed, high voltage frequencies to take pictures of the radiating fields that surround all living things. Kirlian images will even show the complete intact energy field of a leaf that has been cut in half.

In the 1940’s Dr. Harold Saxon Burr, a distinguished medical researcher at Yale, insisted that pathology could be detected in the energy field of the body long before any physical symptoms emerged. Burr proposed that diseases could be prevented by adjusting the energy field.

New technology, like the SQUID magnetometer, can detect the tiny magnetic fields created by the biochemical and physiological activities of the body. Using this device, it was found that all the tissues and organs of the body produce specific magnetic vibrations, or biomagnetic fields, more accurate than EEGs or EKGs, as it is three-dimensional or holographic in nature.

Quantum research reveals that energy behaves in different ways depending upon what the observer is expecting to see. Many physicists believe the only explanation is that the energies are themselves intelligent to some small degree.
