The Mind Does Not Know How to Heal
In our ordinary mind, we do not always know what is best for our growth. Because our ego is split into parts, with various factions competing to get differing needs met, we cannot always perceive how to heal. When we follow our (ego) self-will, we will make many mistakes. But, this will also bring the lessons necessary to learn and grow, albeit through struggle, burnout, loss, pain, illness, and confusion.
The process of deep emotional healing sometimes feels intensely frightening because our protective mind is built to guard against discomfort. When we follow our inner knowing about how to heal emotionally, we may take steps that feel unusual or even embarrassing to our conscious mind. Yet, each intuitive direction that we follow through on will be accompanied by an inner affirmation of relief.
Releasing Emotions Spontaneously Through The Body
Unresolved emotions can be worked through spontaneously by giving your body permission to do what it needs to do to release old emotional imprints. Breathing deeply, making sounds, instinctively shifting your body into different positions, contorting your face, or laying down with arms wide open is often all that is needed for an emotion to release.
Your body will always tell you what you need to do to release your pain but your mind will likely resist. However, you cannot think your way through a painful emotion. Staying with whatever comes up, and moving, breathing and sounding without thinking, will shift the emotion out of submersion, and into the light of love.
