Unfelt emotions manifest in our life as blocks in love, finances, health and more
Since you were conceived your soul started attracting events to your life to make you feel emotions, because these are the lessons that you came here to learn.
Your body has seven major energy centers called Chakras:
Solar Plexus chakra
Third Eye chakra
Each of them houses different emotions. Each chakra takes about a year to develop, and this development begins at the time of conception and ends around 8 years of age. During that time, the chakra in development attracts to our life different events to make us learn how to feel the emotions handled by this energy center.
If the first time you experienced an unpleasant emotion you acted it out instead of feeling it, you did not learn how to feel that emotion and therefore it was not released. It stayed in the chakra and became an energy block. Therefore that chakra has continued to attract events into your life trying to make you feel that emotion. The problem is that every time that emotion is triggered you respond to it in the same way that you did the first time you felt it in your childhood, you act it out.
To understand better emotions let's use the example of a pendulum. Imagine the pendulum moving back and forth, back and forth, from Happiness to Sadness in a perfect flow. But when it has to experience Sadness it chooses to ignore that emotion by going out with friends and having a good time, acting out the emotion. By doing this the pendulum gets stuck in Sadness, it can't move to Happiness anymore, and even if it does it will be just for a little while, because the outcome always will end up in Sadness to make it learn how to feel this emotion.
This is the reason why you get the unwanted result over and over again in love, work, career, finances, or other. You need to learn to feel that negative emotion you are avoiding to feel in order to release it and be able to experience its positive side.
To get yourself unstuck and able to move to the positive side, you need to feel the blocked emotion.
How to feel your emotions
Here is an exercise that can help you identify and heal hidden emotions:
"Choose the problem or situation you wish to change, visualize it as though you were watching a movie in your mind and recreate the circumstances affecting the issue.
While you are watching this movie, allow your emotions to surface. Notice where in your body you feel them. Look at the picture to see which chakra the energy block is in. After identifying the chakra, look again at the picture to see at what age the problem first originated. Can you remember a similar incident occurring back then?
While thinking about the issue, what is the emotion that you are feeling? Try to name the emotion. If you have trouble naming the emotion download the Emotions Wheel
Feel the emotion
Learning to feel your emotions is a process that requires a lot of practice. Do this exercise frequently and you will learn a lot about yourself and transcend hidden emotions, healing your life.
