If you are regularly sick, or just feel tired and worn out, you might have stuck emotions that you need to release. As we go through life, we build up a lot of trapped emotions within us. We need to release these stuck emotions on a regular basis to remain healthy and vibrant. If you don't take the time to get rid of these stuck emotions, they continue to accumulate and you feel worse and worse as time goes on.
Learn how to know if you have stuck emotions or suppressed emotions. Today, I'm going to give you 11 things that you can do to clear out your emotional baggage that you've been carrying around. It's time to cleanse your body and release those emotions!
Do you have stuck emotions?
I've been thinking about this this week, because I have been helping my dad move. I'm here at his current house and we've been packing everything up for the week. All this packing has gotten me thinking about the stuff I have myself at home, and the idea that I don't really want to hold on to a lot of things. Thankfully, my dad is not a pack rat. But when you live in one house for a long time, you accumulate a lot of stuff. I'm sure many of you can relate to this!
Every at least twice a year, my husband and I go through all of the things that we have in our home and in our storage in our basement, and we just get rid of things. It always feels so good to go through that process! I always feel lighter.
Even if you just have one room in your house, like your bedroom or your office or your kitchen, that is cluttered...take a little bit of time to organize it and clean up that clutter. Don't you feel better? I always feel lighter. I have more space, not just physically but emotionally, there's more space. And it always feels good.
I want to relate this process to your own physical and emotional body, and the necessity of doing regular ongoing housecleaning for the physical body as well.
We tend to accrue and acquire and build up lots and lots of energies and emotions and experiences and things as we go about our lives.
If you don't take the time to consciously get rid of these stuck emotions, to metaphorically declutter your house, they will continue to build up and you will have problems.
How do you know that you have stuck emotions, or suppressed emotions, in your physical body?
Well, your body tells you! The biggest way it tells you is through your physical symptoms that you experience.
You might get sick on a regular basis. When we get sick, it's our body's way of saying "I need a break, there is something that I need to get taken care of. And I can't keep moving forward to do it. So I need time to rest."
Also, if you also have an ongoing chronic illness or disease, or even if you just feel tired, you feel heavy, you feel lethargic, or way down deep, just don't have the energy that you used to have. These things can all be symptoms from your body, that you have stuff that you need to do some cleaning and some housework on to get rid of.
All my clients that I work with have a different reaction, a different experience with the energy healing work that I do. But every single one of them experiences one result that is exactly the same. That is that they all feel lighter. When we get done with our sessions, every person I've ever worked with, tells me that they feel lighter when we're done.
And I love that! I think we all want to feel that way.
We carry around so much baggage from day to day. And it's cumulative, until we take the time to consciously do something to get rid of it. So I've got a list of 11 things that you can do to help do some housecleaning emotionally and spiritually for you.
This list is some ideas of things that you can do. Most of these things you can do on your own. Some of them require the help of another person. So try at least one of these things. Let me know how it works for you.
The idea is not just to do some housecleaning when you move, or once or twice a year. But to do it daily, every single day, it's important to take a little bit of time, even just five minutes for yourself to clear out some of these things. Get rid of those stuck emotions on a regular basis and you'll feel healthy and light!
11 ways to clear stuck emotions
Here's the list! The idea is, with all of these things, these different energies get stuck in our bodies, energy needs to flow and it needs to move. And if we don't facilitate that process, things get stuck. And that's what contributes to the our illnesses and our dis-ease that we develop over time.
In the comments below, let me know what you've tried and what works for you.
1) Buy The Emotion Code book
The first thing that I'm going to suggest is that you buy the book, The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson. This is how I got started in energy healing. I was led to his book. This book is so incredible because he teaches you how to use The Emotion Code for yourself and for your family. It's not very difficult to learn. Once you learn it, you can literally take 5 or 10 minutes every day, and just release those emotions that you have trapped along the way. Beautiful, quick and easy.
2) Buy Feelings Buried Alive Never Die book
Another one of my favorite books is Feelings Buried Alive Never Die by Karol Truman. In her book, she has what's called The Script. The Script is the same principle as The Emotion Code. It's a way to process the emotions that you no longer want or need to carry around. They're no longer serving their purpose for you and you want to get rid of them.
I have this script memorized, it's not that long. And once you start using it regularly, you will have it memorized as well. And then just use it once a day, at the end of your day. Go through this script for any emotions that you feel you need to get rid of that you've accumulated from that day or that have come up. Both #1 and #2 are things that you can use for yourself on a regular ongoing basis. And they work.
3) Get groovin' to some music
Number three, play music and move to it! Forget about formal dancing or anything that requires you to think about it.
Do this by yourself, go into some space, close the door and the curtains if you don't want people to watch. Put on some music and just let your body move and dance and express itself and do whatever it needs. This is one of my favorite ways to get things out and moving from your body.
4) Try yoga, tai chi or qigong
Do either yoga, tai chi, or qigong. I talked about these three as a way to meditate, too. I love all of these practices, they are wonderful ways to get the energy moving. All three are designed specifically to get the energy moving throughout your body and to give you better health and wellness and vitality as a result.
5) Get outside and get moving
Exercise! But not exercise for the sake of getting in shape. You need to do something by yourself that is solitary, so that you're not having a conversation with someone else. And also leave your phone at home or in your car.
It's especially good if you can get out in nature. If you can go for a walk, go for a run, take a hike, ride your bike, get some sort of physical exercise physical movement for your body, it's the same principle as dancing, yoga, or tai chi. You want to get your body moving to get the energy within your body moving. So go exercise.
6) Get a reiki session
Treat yourself to reiki. If you've never tried reiki, it's a wonderful energy healing modality that helps clear out the things that are stuck. It's peaceful and relaxing, too. You get to lay on a massage table while the practitioner uses their hands above your body to assess and direct your energy. When you're done, you'll feel energized and more clear.
7) Get acupuncture
The next one is acupuncture. Acupuncture is a is also a wonderful energy healing modality. I've done it a lot myself. It is specifically designed to remove the blockages that you have in the meridians, or the pathways that the energy follows within your body. Each of those meridians corresponds to different organs and organ systems. If you're having trouble with a particular organ, or particular disease that affects that organ, acupuncture specifically treats those things and addresses those symptoms. And it's very relaxing and calming to experience as well.
8) Book an energy healing session with me
Sign up for a session with me! I would love to work with you and help you clear out these blocks for yourself. We can clear out things that you're currently dealing with and things that you have experienced from your past. Even generational family patterns that you have, especially patterns of abuse and addiction, can all be healed and addressed through the energy healing work that I do. So sign up for a session, I would love to work with you.
9) Free writing
Free writing - not journaling, not something where you're thinking intellectually about what's been going on. But take some pen and paper and just allow yourself to write. You might start off with a question, how am I feeling today? Or, what things have been on my mind lately? Or if you have a particular emotion, maybe you're jealous about something or you're angry about something, start off with that. Just let yourself write. The idea with all of these things is that you're not using your mind, you're not using your intellectual process to think your way and solve these things and let these things go. You're intuitively letting it happen. You're letting things flow and move through your body to be released and to let them go.
10) Get creative with your hands
Any sort of creative activity where you're using your hands is extremely useful for releasing stuck emotions. Do some sort of artwork, draw paint, color mandalas, do some pottery, work with clay, put together a puzzle. It doesn't matter if you're good at drawing. I know you might be saying, well, Jen, but I just don't know how to draw. That's not the point, it doesn't matter. You're not going to show this to anyone. This is simply for you to express yourself and to be creative.
You might even try it for a specific problem you're having. If you have some sort of sickness, or disease or physical pain, ask yourself what does this shoulder pain look like to me? What does it feel like to me? and just start drawing and see what comes up. These things might feel a little strange to you at first, if you haven't tried them, but give it a go, I promise they will work for you, they will help you.
11) Play in the dirt
This is related to the artwork. Get out in your yard and especially if you have a garden, get out, get your hands dirty and get in the earth, get in the dirt, dig up the weeds, do whatever you need to take care of your garden. It's a wonderful activity, if you enjoy that, for getting your mind off of whatever's going on and just allowing yourself to work. Perfect for clearing stuck emotions!
A little work every day keeps the doctor away
Any of these 11 things that to help clear out your emotional baggage to get rid of the stuck emotions can be incredibly useful. Just use them on a regular, ongoing basis. You need to cleanse your body, your physical body, your emotional body, your mental body
Clearing emotions regularly is like your diet. If you eat a lot of processed foods, and a lot of sugar and a lot of fast food, you're just not going to feel good. It doesn't work that way. You're going to feel crappy, you're going to feel tired, and lethargic. And you need to do a cleanse to get rid of those things, to feel light and to feel better.
It's the same way for your emotions. If you keep letting them accumulate, which they just naturally do over time, you're going to feel tired and lethargic and not well. You need to cleanse those things and get moving and get them out of your system.
I encourage you to pick at least one of these things and to do it! Do something on a regular ongoing basis for yourself. You will feel better, you will feel happier, you'll feel lighter, your experience of life will become more joyful. I know we all want more happiness and more joy in our lives!
