With the holidays behind us, many people are focusing on getting their body back in shape. While this is a good idea, my focus today is on what we store in the cells of our bodies. Ever wonder where all those negative thoughts and emotions go that we experience? Even though they may not be visible, they remain right in the cells of our bodies and can show up as aches, pains, stress or medical problems.
Healing Our Bodies
When we have leg pain and can’t walk, we usually visit a doctor and ask for a pill or some treatment to relieve the pain. Medical treatments work on healing your physical body. They do not address what is stored in your emotional, mental and spiritual energy bodies that create and support your physical form. More than likely you do not ask yourself “Why am I having this pain? You just hope that the pain will go away quickly.
That our thoughts create our realities is a well-known universal law. But do you know that your beliefs and emotions create the body you have including any pain or illnesses? This fact was made apparent to me when I tried to discover why I was still having pain in my hip and leg following a car accident I had eleven months ago. In spite of the fact that I went to many excellent therapists and doctors, the pain remained. In my attempt to clear my body of pain, I decided to take a different approach and ask “What was the pain trying to tell me?” and “What was stored in the cells of my body?”
In order to access this information, I had to meditate and ask each painful spot what it had to say. I discovered many parts were still holding onto negative emotions and fears from childhood. Even though I tried to assure my inner child parts that they were safe and that I would take care of them, they were still not fully willing to give up the pain. After these meditative sessions, I noticed the pain was less but not gone completely so I knew I had more work to do.
Our bodies act as our alarm system bringing our hidden emotions and thoughts into our awareness through pain, stress and assorted medical problems. It does this so we will address the cause rather than just seek quick relief. Please understand that I am not suggesting you do not visit your doctor and seek treatment but that you need to go deeper that just treating the physical body.
Each disease has a thought form associated with it. You can discover this by looking at what that part or organ does physically and symbolically. For example, your back supports you so if you have back pain ask “Where is there a lack of support in your life?” You can find this information at the back of Louise Hay’s books Your Can Heal Your Body or You Can Heal Your Life. I also have an online class called Listening to Your Body and a guided meditation CD to help you access what your body has to say.
In order to rid my body of any negative beliefs and feelings, I called upon my mother and father, who are long gone, my sisters, and others with whom I had relationships where I experienced anger, betrayal, lack of acknowledgement and love, etc. What has subsequently happened has been a generational healing that began when I decided to tell my family members and others all the feelings that I had held within myself for many years. Following this, I felt much better.
I know not everyone believes they have the capacity to speak with the deceased but the truth of the matter is we all have these abilities. To do this, get yourself into a meditative state and invite a deceased relative close to you. Then pay attention to what feels different when they are close no matter how subtle it is. Then ask them to go away and then come back again as they will always come to you exactly the same way each time. If you still believe this is not something you are capable of, then look at a picture of the person or imagine they are standing there in front of you and tell them all that is in your heart. I do have a guided meditation to do this on my website if you need further help or I can help you personally.
I am sure everyone has experienced and stored some negative thoughts and emotions in their body at some point in their lives. Even if you are in good health, this is still an excellent exercise to do. We are entering a new year and in order to make 2014 a great year for you, it is necessary to let go of any old stuff that no longer serves you or is holding you back.
When my pain was still not completely gone, I asked myself what else I may be holding onto that I was unaware of. Some of it was past life stuff. I know not everyone is aware of their past lives but you can access that information through meditation or hypnotherapy. I managed to rid myself a lot of old stuff and now feel much lighter, at least energetically and the pain is getting less. Since we layer negative emotions and beliefs from childhood right into adulthood, it may take some to clear all the layers from the cells of our bodies. So don’t expect that you will do this in one time.
Again meditation or hypnotherapy is necessary to be able to listen within. If you have difficulty to meditate or quiet your mind, do deep rhythmic breathing where you breathe in deeply and slowly through your nose to the count of five, hold it ten seconds, and then breathe it out slowly through your mouth to the count of five. With each breath you breathe out, let go of whatever is in your mind. Continue to do this until your mind is a blank screen.
Another thing to be aware of is that some people have a tendency to blame their bodies and themselves when they don’t get what they want like finding love or being successful. Some believe their lack of success is because they are too fat, too thin, are not good looking enough, etc. Others may tell themselves they are stupid, unlucky or a victim of circumstances. In doing so, we judge ourselves and find ourselves lacking. This blame stays in the cells of our bodies.
Some people have a tendency to blame others for their misfortunes. When they do this, they can never heal themselves because they put the responsibility for their problems outside themselves and don’t take responsibility for the part they played in whatever has occurred. The cells of their bodies are then left with the task of holding onto anger, self-hate and judgement, and so on.
When we blame ourselves or others for our lack of success, we see ourselves as victims. There really are no victims. There are only people who do not take responsibility for their soul choices of people they have invited into their lives for their own learning. We need to honor our bodies as our temples instead of using them as storage devices for all our negative thoughts and emotions.
Commonly, many people compensate for their feelings of anger, depression and lack of success by over eating, drinking too much and smoking to fill in the emotional hole they feel inside. Usually what we put in our mouths fills our emotional needs while taking recreational drugs is more of an attempt to escape from our current reality. The better option is to love and accept yourself completely rather than looking outside yourself and being dependent on others to fulfill your emotional needs. Remember all those negative emotions stay in your body and will potentially make you ill.
