How about when you just feel negative energy or emotion and cannot identify a belief that’s blocking you? In addition to beliefs that we can actually pinpoint in our lives, many times things happened during childhood before we could even speak or understand. This is energy stored in our bodies, in our subconscious mind, and we may not even be aware of it other than through a feeling of discomfort in certain situations.
When intense things happened, they might have caused extremely strong feelings or emotions that we now label trauma. These intense emotions create unintelligible sensations that move us in ways that seem unreasonable to the logical, conscious mind. Nevertheless, they are very real in our inner world and their effects can be certainly felt in our outer world.
It is important that when we feel negative feelings or emotions, we acknowledge and release them in order to center our energies and maintain our alignment. They are our signals that there is some fear, belief, trauma, emotional scar or negative program playing in our subconscious mind. If not addressed, these emotions can cause us to self-sabotage and not achieve our desires or goals.
Whenever we feel negative emotion, it is because what we’re thinking is not in alignment with our higher self. This divinely endowed part of us knows we are unlimited potential and worthy of all good, success, wealth, wholeness and happiness. So a negative feeling is really an alarm to get us back on the right track and align with our True Self, our chosen identity, our dreams and intentions.
However, most people, due to their conditioning, think that the negative emotions are due to life or other people attacking us and we’re not in control or able to prevent it. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The key to purposely directing your emotional states is to get into the habit of consciously catching yourself any time you feel bad. Then simply release the negative emotion you’re experiencing with one of several powerful strategies I’ll teach you and refocus your thoughts.
The Power of Release
Before I show you a strategy today to quickly release your emotional blocks, I want to share a story with you of one of my students.
Betty was a skeptical attendee at one of my seminars. She was an attractive woman, but it was her eyes that drew my attention because they conveyed a deep sadness. During the first day she came up to me and said she was having trouble with the exercises because she didn’t know what she wanted. I talked with her for a while and told her to pretend that she did know and do the exercises acting as if she did. On the second day, we began teaching release techniques to remove emotional blocks. The techniques I teach at my live seminars are more involved and can be emotionally charged, so they’re better suited for a group setting where as a participant, you feel the intention and positive energy of the other attendees. I encourage you to attend one of my events if you feel you’d benefit from this supportive atmosphere.
After several hours of watching other people release on major issues and feeling herself opening up at a new level, Betty came up to the front of the room and asked if I could work with her next. She wanted to break through and felt safe in the environment of the group. As soon as we started applying the technique, she started crying and talking a mile a minute about her emotional scars. It turned out she had been consistently sexually abused from the ages of eight to fourteen and had suffered assault as a young woman as well. As you can imagine, she was buried under years of pain and fear.
That day, as she released the feelings of unworthiness, self-blame and guilt, Betty’s countenance began to change in front of our eyes. She looked 10 years younger! She replaced anxiety with peace, love and harmony. She relinquished fear for abundance, confidence and power. She forgave and accepted herself and experienced an incredible transformation. Betty then began getting clear on what she wanted for her life. Today she is accomplishing her goals and has a highly successful business that brings her tremendous satisfaction and happiness and is helping other abused women overcome their traumas.
That is the power of releasing emotional blocks!
The Simple Clearing Method
One of the fastest strategies to release negative emotion is to welcome the feeling or belief that popped up and say to yourself, ‘I welcome (or love) you, my feeling, emotion, belief, and I am grateful for the opportunity to free you and myself.’
When you begin the process it’s a good idea to rate the intensity of the emotion on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being no emotion and 10 being off the charts, that way you can gauge it as you release. It’s also helpful to scan your body and notice where you are feeling the emotion (usually stomach area or solar plexus) and focus your attention there (even put your hand there) while you welcome the emotion and express gratitude for the opportunity to release it and free yourself.
As you do this, oftentimes an involuntary sigh or releasing breath will occur. That’s a sign that you are releasing the pent up energy. Then check yourself again on the intensity of the remaining emotion on a scale of 1 to 10. Simply repeat until you’re at a three or below.
Why should you welcome an emotion or feeling that you don’t want? First of all because if it popped up, you have it inside and it’s making you feel bad or limiting you. It’s already in you. Do you want to keep it or get rid of it? Get rid of it, right? Suppressing a feeling or emotion is keeping it; it’s bottling it up and driving it deep down inside you. The key with all of these clearing techniques is that you release the belief, feeling or emotion.
Remember that everything in this universe is energy. A thought is energy, a feeling is energy, an emotion is energy. For goodness sake, emotion means energy in motion and when you bottle it up and don’t let it flow like it wants to and is supposed to, you create dis-ease. That’s where sickness and disease come from. So, learn some of these techniques that you can use on the fly. I know it may sound a little strange if you’ve never heard about releasing techniques before (it certainly did to me at first), but believe me it works like magic!
Let’s say you’re in a business meeting with several people and trying to win over an important prospective client or customer and one of your associates with whom you have a bit of a competitive relationship makes a negative, comment regarding competency, directed subtly at you. All of a sudden you are really pissed off and at the same time your fear of rejection rears its ugly head. All at once you are feeling anger, hatred, fear, resentment and maybe even revenge and if you get up and excuse yourself you’re afraid you’ll look weak, so what do you do?
While sitting right there you take a deep breath and put a little smile on your face, go inside and say to yourself with feeling, ‘I love you my dear emotions and I am grateful for this opportunity to free all of you and myself.’ You’ll find yourself feeling better immediately, although you may need to focus your attention on the emotion while saying the release phrase to yourself two or three times before you’re back to being fully balanced. So it takes thirty seconds, so what. Successful people can deal with silence; it’s only insecure people who have to be filling airspace with incessant talking.
Now that you’re composed and confident, maybe you say to her, “Oh Mary, you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself, you really do a good job!” Viola… Your subconscious will reward you for being balanced and releasing negative beliefs and emotions. Remember, it loves you unconditionally. I personally use this technique. It’s a fantastic tool you should learn and use.
As your assignment today, I’d like you to take several of your emotional blocks and release them using the Simple Clearing Method. It’s very effective and will revolutionize your life. The more you use this highly effective strategy the easier it will be for let go of any emotion that is limiting you and living in the positive states that empower you to achieve what you desire to be, do and have!
