Trapped Emotions

Do you feel like you are struggling under the weight of something? Does it seem challenging to feel peace, joy, love or even acceptance? Does it perhaps feel like you are weighed down by a particular emotion, like sadness, fear or anger?

Emotional Release - Scrabble 1

Sometimes a traumatic or emotionally charged experience leaves an energy behind in our body. Instead of simply experiencing the feeling and moving through it, the energy of the emotion becomes trapped in the physical body. These trapped emotions can cause disruptions in our relationships, as well as physical pain, dysfunction and even disease.

Maria had a traumatic break up. Even after two years she had a hard time seeing her ex-husband. The emotions of betrayal, disappointment and bitterness were stuck in her body. After releasing them and doing some other work to step into her own power, she was able to move on.

Chris lost his partner in an accident. The emotions he had to release were shock and despair, and at a later point sorrow and abandonment. Shortly after he released all his trapped emotions and did some further grief work, he met his new partner Paul. Chris and Paul just moved in together.

Janet had a fight with her sister which led to them not speaking for ten years. She felt deeply misunderstood and the emotion got trapped in her body. Once she released the emotion, she felt able to contact her sister. They are rebuilding their relationship.

If your body is holding a long-term trapped emotion, we have to take a look at what is going on energetically. The emotion is an energy within you vibrating at a certain frequency and you automatically attract more of that frequency into your life. A trapped emotion can persist for many years and be the cause for us experiencing similar emotions over and over again.

If disappointment is trapped, you will find yourself in a never ending cycle of being disappointed with others and yourself. If feeling attacked is trapped inside you, you will feel attacked by others all the time. If abandonment is trapped, you might struggle with feeling alone. If mistrust is trapped, you might find yourself attracting people you cannot trust or think you cannot trust.

Each emotion is related to an organ, respectively a pair of meridians. Anger, for example, is related to your liver, bitterness to the gall bladder, fear to your kidneys, grief to your heart and so on. The emotion originates from that specific organ but can get stuck anywhere in your body. Sometimes the area of a physical issue holds several trapped emotions.

Once you have released a trapped emotion, it is gone for good. That doesn’t mean that you will not feel that feeling again. It means that the emotional charge, the grip the emotion had over you, will be gone for good.

Releasing trapped emotions from a place of self-love and forgiveness improves the relationship you have with yourself, as well as with others. It can also help to let go of pain and can heal physical problems. It significantly improves your quality of life. It gives you the freedom to vibrate at a higher level of acceptance, love, joy and eventually deep peace.

What is Our Light Shadow?

Who do you admire? What do you admire that person for?

I conducted a little survey asking these two questions, and the answers reached from singers and athletes to Jesus. The interesting thing about asking such questions is which insights the answers give us about our own dreams and desires. When we have a role model, or simply somebody we know and think highly of, it is the energy of that person—the traits we perceive them to have—which holds the magical pull for us. Just as we all have a dark shadow, we also all have a light shadow. The dark shadow is the traits that we judge in others. Our light shadow is the traits that we admire in others and feel that we are not.

One of the public people I find fascinating and admire is the Dalai Lama. He personifies the energies of spirituality, wisdom, peace, loving kindness, joy and laughter for me. He clearly vibrates at a higher level than most humans on this earth.

Dalai Lama - pulling beard

Now, why him and not another spiritual and peaceful leader? Beyond his spiritualism, he fully lives what was a light shadow of mine for the longest time. He has a childlike innocence, a playful joy, what even shows up as a carefree nature. He can be silly and laugh at little things. Growing up in a German household, I learned very early on that there was no place for silliness. One had to behave maturely. After all, life is a serious matter. Or is it?

Of course it only is if you buy into that story that growing up is serious business. According to this perspective, being an adult is indeed all about being responsible and dignified. The Dalai Lama does not operate on that story. The energy which allows him to experience life from a place of lightness and joy was hidden in my shadow for the longest time.

I’d like to invite you to think of whom you admire, who your role model is. Why do you admire that person? The more we recognize what our light shadow is, the more we can integrate that light into our whole being.

WildAboutWellness2

On Wednesday, May 27, 2015 in the evening, I will be one of the speakers at the Burlington “Wild About Wellness” network meeting, organized by our wonderful leader Simone Usselman-Tod. This event is open to the public. If you would like to attend, please contact me or Simone.

In my talk, I will be illustrating how we are all born as magnificent castles with a thousand rooms. Each room contains an energy, a different possibility of expressing and experiencing life. Throughout life, we disown one after the next of those options because we are afraid to be judged by others and—even worse—not to be loved anymore.

Neuschwanstein

By the time we are grownups, many of us have locked up so many of those “rooms” we had in our castle. We forget about ever having been this magnificent castle with hundreds of different rooms and all these possibilities of expressions of our true self. We believe we are just a small, run-down two-bedroom house.

We are under the misconception that there is such a thing as “bad energy”. In my talk, I will also explain why it makes sense to embrace all energies in us and to feed the black wolves inside us as much as the white ones.

As a take-away that evening, you will be able to pick one light shadow, one trait you admire in others, and integrate it into your being in a guided mediation. The line between what is showing up as a dark shadow and what can show up as a light shadow can sometimes be a bit blurred. What is a light shadow for you, might be a dark shadow for somebody else. In both cases, it is something that you feel you are not, even though the potential for every trait lies inside all of us. The main question is whether you are judging something or admiring it.

Some examples of light shadow qualities are:

abundant, artistic, assertive, beautiful, patient, easy going, special, magnificent, connected, articulate, responsible, organized, fun, playful, worthy, funny, strong, decisive, confident, intelligent, successful, persistent, flexible, spontaneous, sensual, generous, wise, forgiving, authentic, open-hearted… and the list goes on…

Gift from the Sea

A few days ago, I picked up a book which I hadn’t looked at in 25 years: Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s “Gift from the Sea”. She was an American author, a famous aviator and wife to fellow aviator Charles Lindbergh. Sixty years after she published this book, it still holds beautiful truths and insights to contemplate. In her book, she takes a different seashell for each chapter as a metaphor, reflecting on the lives of Americans, particularly American women, in the mid-twentieth century. She shares her insights on youth and age; love and marriage; peace, solitude and contentment.

Anne Morrow Lindberg 2

The chapter that especially drew my attention this time around is the one called “Double-Sunrise”. Morrow Lindbergh describes a seashell which consists of two halves that are exactly matched. “Each side, like the wing of a butterfly, is marked with the same pattern”. This seashell appears to be the perfect symbol for the beginning of a relationship. “For the first part of every relationship is pure, whether it be with friend or lover, husband or child.” The two people are like a self-enclosed world. “Two people listening to each other, two shells meeting each other, making one world between them. There are no others in the perfect unity of that instant, no other people or things or interests.”

Gifts from the Sea - Double Sunrise

The nature of life is change; transformation is a natural part of the process of life. Like everything in life, a relationship also changes; it becomes more complicated through contact with the outside world. Somehow we often mistakenly feel that not being able to maintain the original pattern of the relationship is a failure or tragedy. We hear from others that the honeymoon period won’t last and we find disappointment in that realization. Yet, spring won’t last forever either. It will be followed by the summer, and then the fall and finally the winter.

This applies to love relationships as well as other relationships. Women “refind in a limited form with each new child, something resembling, at least in its absorption, the early pure relationship. In the sheltered simplicity of the first days after a baby is born, one sees again the magical closed circle, the miraculous sense of two people existing only for each other.” As the child grows up this brief interlude is over and the relationship between parent and child changes continuously.

Gift-From-The-Sea - Cara & I

With our primary love relationship, we also need to go with the flow of the seasons and do our relationship work. Otherwise “with each partner hungry for different reasons and each misunderstanding the other’s needs, it is easy to fall apart or into late love affairs. The temptation is to blame the situation on the other person and to accept the easy solution that a new and more understanding partner will solve everything. But neither woman nor man are likely to be fed by another relationship which seems easier because it is in an earlier stage.” Instead we need to remember that the original essence of the relationship, so perfectly symbolized by the double sunrise seashell, is merely buried under layers of living our daily lives.

Morrow Lindbergh writes, “One way of rediscovering the double-sunrise is to duplicate some of its circumstances.” She suggests finding time alone with your partner to go on vacation or be alone at home. We can always circle back to an earlier phase by reconnecting with what we loved about each other at the beginning, even if it might just be an interlude of being like that double sunrise seashell again for a while.

She believes this temporary return to the pure relationship applies for our children as well. Children grow in security and strength when we spend more time with each child alone, to truly connect one-and-one, allowing them to feel how much they are loved, and acknowledging them the way they are.

When a relationship is struggling or even ends, we often in our mind re-write the story of the relationship. The later events in the relationship overshadow the entire duration of the relationship. We are unable to remember the good times anymore but believe everything was a mistake and some of us might even feel we wasted our time with the other person. Yet, everything in life goes through the seasons and one season is not better than the next. The key is to enjoy each season for as long as it lasts and for what it has to offer.

Anne Morrow Lindberg old

“One learns to accept the fact that no permanent return is possible to an old form of relationship; and, more deeply still, that there is no holding of a relationship to a single form. This is not tragedy but part of the ever-recurrent miracle of life and growth. All living relationships are in process of change, of expansion, and must perpetually be building themselves new forms.”

In my first marriage, I didn’t make time to re-discover the double sunrise seashell. Once we became parents everything revolved around our respective roles as mother and father, as caregivers and providers for our children. I have learned to make time for my partner and to make sure I also spend time with each child alone, just as much as we all spend time together. My daughters and I make time at least once a month to spend an entire day together, go on a little trip to a place we like, or to enjoy what we all feel passionate about, which in our case happens to be theatre.

One of them is soon moving out and that triggers some sadness in everybody. At the same time, we can all feel that the bond is very strong between the sisters and also with other family members. A change requires us to adapt and find new ways of living the relationships. The loving foundation continues to exist, the form is just renewed.

I invite you to make time to maintain your relationships and keep the double sunrise seashell alive. Allow yourself to love freely, without expectations. Dance through life and within your relationships. Give yourself permission to embrace change and to grow with it.

The Perfect Mother

A client said to me this week, “I saw my mother again and suddenly realized that I could just be with her, treat her with compassion, see her as a human being. I really have stopped judging her, and am more able to love her the way she is.”

Isn’t that beautiful? Each time when somebody I am working with is healing a relationship, it touches me deeply in my heart.

Another client of mine wrote a letter of gratitude to her stepmother this week. She hasn’t seen her stepmother or her father in twenty years. Their last encounter was one full of anger, conflict and mutual hurt. The daughter has spent the last two decades blaming the stepmother for everything. Those feelings had bound up her energy in the past, and left her feeling unloved and “broken”. She felt she was victimized by her stepmother, who struggled to raise her stepdaughter with the same affection she had raised her own biological children with.

perfect mother - letter

My client did not write the letter for her stepmother, she wrote it for herself. After doing the inner work, she was able to acknowledge her own feelings, but also everything her stepmom had done or had attempted to do; she was truly able to forgive her for what she didn’t do. Nothing of that needed to be written in the letter. Instead it was a simple letter of thank you to the woman who was in her life for most part of her childhood. She didn’t send the letter off to receive a response, nor for the purpose of changing or influencing her stepmother. She wrote it to clear her own energy of resentment and anger out.

Forgiving and shifting into appreciation and gratitude is always primarily for ourselves, “for-giving” ourselves love and freedom. It is also a huge step towards taking responsibility for our own life. When we finally let go of blaming others, we win the ability to respond differently to past, present and future events in our life. We gain true response-ability.

Why do so many of us struggle for such a long time with forgiving our parents for their imperfections? Why do we insist on blaming them and on feeling that they ruined or affected our lives negatively?

We have idealized images of what our mother (and father) should be like. We might all have slightly different ideas, but the perfect mother somehow should be selfless, she should take care of us, she should always be patient and supportive, she should listen well and encourage us, she should be proud of us and make us proud of her, and so much more: in short she should love us unconditionally. Media images, TV shows, movies and books often perpetuate these ideas of the perfect mother and affect our beliefs of what a “good mother” is like. These images stem from our deepest desires to be truly loved. Yet, they cause us to judge our mother and ourselves as mothers because we naturally fall short of this perfect mother myth at times. They are the source of guilt and shame instead of enjoying the love we do feel.

Perfect Mother -Carpenter quote

Most people, no matter whether they are parents or not, are still learning to love themselves and others unconditionally. The perfect mother images disregard the fact that we always mirror and trigger each other’s issues and challenges. Children trigger their parents and parents trigger their children. That is a good thing. It is an opportunity to grow and do our inner work.

What triggers us in others, what we judge and dislike about them, is really what we dislike in ourselves. As long as we refuse to give ourselves what we would like to receive from others, it is out of our reach. Only when we truly feel we are good enough, do we become just perfectly lovable the way we are. We can feel loved by others, no matter how limited their ability to love unconditionally might be.

Perfect Mother - Desjardins quote

Nobody and nothing can prevent us from truly loving ourselves. It is our job to love ourselves; nobody can do it for us! No amount of love from the outside can penetrate through if we do not take the cape of self-judgment, self-loathing or even self-hatred off.

 John Gray cartoon love-hate

  from “What You Feel You Can Heal” by John Gray

On this Mother’s Day, make the choice to let go of the past. Forgive your mother or stepmother, whether they are alive or dead. What happened in the past is over and does not matter anymore. Realize that it doesn’t mean anything unless you give it a certain meaning. Decide that your mother, stepmother, or mother-in-law for that matter, is just perfect the way she is. Start telling your story differently, with love.

Perfect Mother - Tolstoi quote

Free yourself up to love your parents without expectations or needs. Be willing to love them the way they are. Take the cape off that prevents you from feeling the love of others. Finally give yourself the gift of loving yourself the way you are.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

The See-Saw Effect – What You Suppress Your Partner Will Express

Have you ever felt surprised by your mood unexpectedly shifting and an emotion suddenly boiling up?

Maybe you felt a bit annoyed about something that happened during the day and when your partner comes home, you share with him or her, and suddenly you feel really angry?

Or you felt a bit concerned about your mother’s health and you talk to your father who is apparently not worried but quite calm. Yet, you suddenly feel really scared and worried about her?

What has happened in those two situations? You felt a bit annoyed respectively a bit worried and suddenly the emotions boiled over into anger and fear. Why? Who pushed the button for that eruption?

John Gray cartoon fear

John Gray: What You Feel You Can Heal

Your partner and your father pushed the button without knowing they did. Both of them where disconnected to their own emotions and had suppressed their anger and their fear. We disown certain energies because we have learned it is “bad” to feel or be a certain way. However, whenever one person is trying to bury an emotion, somebody else will express it for them. The more closely connected these two people are, the more they are able to feel and experience each other’s emotions.

In our example, you were feeling and expressing the anger and fear for both of you, yourself and the partner in your interaction. This happens unconsciously and automatically. Suppressed energy has to go somewhere. A vacuum of energy draws that energy in from somewhere else. John Gray illustrates with great humour how our emotional “tank” work when we are in a relationship:

John Gray cartoon anger

John Gray: What You Feel You Can Heal

Wilma is starting to feel anger but pushes it down because she has learned that nice girls don’t get angry. The more she pushes it down, the more Fred feels it and the anger rises in his side of the tank. All of a sudden, Fred starts to feel irritable and angry. Wilma might try to also repress his feeling of anger by attempting to calm him down. This continues until Fred explodes. If this happens on a regular basis, Fred might even be labelled as an angry person. Both remain clueless why the anger explodes.

When we push down a feeling, it comes up in our partner. John Grey calls this the see-saw effect. One example John Grey gives for the see-saw effect is the emotion of “need”. Fred falls in love with Wilma. He starts to feel his need for her but that feeling frightens him because he might lose her. So he pushes that feeling down, telling himself he does not want to get too committed. The feeling of need goes over to Wilma’s side of the “tank” adding to her own feelings of need. Wilma becomes insecure and desperate, and starts to feel what is commonly called “needy”. Some people go from one partner to another, wondering why their partners all become so “needy” around them. Who is the common denominator? The person who is out of touch with his feelings of need and fear.

A friend of mine who is generally seen as a peaceful and calm person always seems to end up in relationships with angry women. When he first meets them, they are quite pleasant. Yet, the longer their relationship lasts, the more annoyed and angry the women seem to all become. They yell at him more and more frequently, more and more loudly, while he shuts down more and more, unable to feel his own emotions. Eventually, he leaves them because he can’t stand being yelled at anymore. Until he embraces his own anger and learns to acknowledge and express it appropriately, he will always attract somebody who expresses this deeply buried emotion for him.

Are you tired of having all these invisible buttons on your chest that others can just push?

Would you like to stop triggering others and stop being triggered yourself?

Would you like to learn more about how we disown certain energies because we have learned it is “bad” to feel or be a certain way and how we can live more conscious relationships as whole human beings who love themselves and others?

I offer individual coaching sessions and workshops.

“I just can’t meditate!”

A couple of years ago, I used to teach a meditation class. These days, I only lead a meditation for our monthly PSYCH-K® practice group or the occasional networking meeting. Last week, I was given the opportunity to guide the meditation at one of the amazing Wild About Wellness meetings Simone Usselman-Tod organizes for health-care practitioners in Burlington, Guelph and Hamilton. Afterwards one participant said to me, “I really liked what you said about meditation because I have learned something new…”

What was it that I had said before starting the meditation? It was really quite simple and the answer to a concern I have often heard from meditation beginners. I have heard people say many times: “I just can’t quiet my mind to meditate. I don’t know what to do to shut my thoughts off!”

Meditation has nothing to do with doing. In fact, it is the exact opposite of doing! Meditation is just being in the moment. Meditation means letting go, letting go of all thoughts that go into the past or the future. It means gently bringing and keeping your attention on what is right now in this very moment in time, being present with whatever shows up.

Meditation Tia OshoDoing the dishes or pulling weeds can be a meditation, as long as you are fully present with what you are doing. Or, as my good friend Lisbeth Fregonese said in a radio interview the other day, “Maybe you are meditation walker, a meditation swimmer, or a meditation jogger.”

Walking, running, swimming, roller blading, riding your bike, dancing, singing and so on can all be meditative. All that is required is that you allow yourself to be fully immersed in whatever you are doing. Embrace mindfulness. Allow your mind, body and spirit to be in rhythm with the walking, running, or swimming. For me writing is meditative. When I allow the thoughts to flow through me and onto the screen, I am not thinking or feeling anything else.

meditation Osho 1One of the biggest distractions which prevents us from fully being present is our phone. Do we really need to be constantly available by phone, e-mail or text? What if we turned our phone off when we are having dinner with our family or when we are on an outing? What if we even turned if off for an entire Sunday to be fully present with the sunshine, to enjoy our back-yard, our loved ones, whatever we are doing? What if we gave ourselves permission to be fully present with our children, our partner, our family or friends? What if we allowed ourselves to give our full attention to whatever we are doing in each given moment, instead of constantly multitasking? What if we opened up to being mindful in each moment in time?

When we are totally here, no yesterday pulling us back with feelings of regret or resentment, no tomorrow pulling us forward and making us anxious, we feel calm, connected, and centred. When we think too much of the past or the future we are wasting the present. Yet, the present is the only thing which is real.

Meditation river Osho

Osho gives a beautiful metaphor of how to quiet your mind which I used to like to read out to my meditation class participants:

“Thoughts settle on their own accord, you need not jump amongst them, you need not try to put them right. It is as if a stream has become muddy… what do you do? Do you jump in it and start helping the stream to become clear? You will make it more muddy. You simply sit on the bank. You wait. There is nothing to be done. Because whatsoever you do will make the stream more muddy. If somebody has passed through a stream and the dead leaves have surfaced and the mud has arisen, just patience is needed. You simply sit on the bank. Watch, indifferently. And as the stream goes on flowing, the dead leaves will be taken away, and the mud will start settling because it cannot hang forever there. After a while, suddenly you will become aware – the stream is crystal-clear again.”

Another misconception people have is that—unless they have a certain amount of time—they do not need to bother meditating. It is not necessary to sit and meditate for an hour every day. Once you start meditating you might want to meditate for an hour because it feels so good but even allowing yourself to be still, relaxed and mindful for ten minutes at a time makes a big difference.

What if our desire is not part of God’s plan?

Beth's text

Hi Angelika,
I have a question. I’m wondering how we know or manage our life around God’s plan for us or God’s divine timing.  We can do all of this work to align our desires and subconscious beliefs but what if what we desire is not part of God’s plan now or ever?  I think the answer may have something to do with living in the moment and accepting where we are now. If we do that each day then I guess we never really need to be so concerned about the future?

Beth


Dear Beth,

Personally I believe the separation between us and God is an artificial one; it is an illusion. God or Life Force flows through us, expresses itself through us and as us. We are God.

So really you are asking, what if we have cleared out all subconscious blocks and limiting beliefs, we have really visualized and felt the future we are moving towards but our desires don’t manifest in the time or way our conscious Ego is expecting?

I believe there is a higher plan and a perfect time and way for everything. Part of creating consciously is to let go of all expectations. We need to set clear intentions, send out clear signals about what we want and then let go of how our desires are supposed to manifest.

Beth

In the Science of Mind tradition* praying and manifesting through affirmative prayer has five parts:

  1. RECOGNITION that God/Life Force/the Universe/Spirit is all there is
  1. UNIFICATION with God; acknowledging that we are not separate from God but part of God/Life Force/the Universe/Spirit
  1. DECLARATION (not begging for but stating the desire clearly) or REALIZATION (feeling what it feels like to have it)
  1. GRATITUDE (already feeling the gratitude for everything that you will receive as if you have already received it)
  1. RELEASE (truly letting it go and surrendering to the how and when of the manifestation)

It is not enough to visualize, we also often need to come up with actions step to manifest our dreams. The perfect partner, the perfect job or perfect health will not just fall from the sky right into our lap. However, if we cannot really feel what we want, our creations will be less successful. Step 3 as well as 4 require us to go into the feeling space of what it is we desire. How does it feel to have love in your life, or abundance or success?

Take the time to line up the Energy first,

and action becomes inconsequential.

If you don’t take the time to line up the Energy,

if you don’t find the feeling place of what you’re looking for,

not enough action in the world will make any difference.

– Abraham

The letting go part (step 5) is an important element of manifesting as well. When you send off a letter, you put it in the mail box and trust that it will get delivered and it will be answered, don’t you? Not trusting that God or the Universe will hear you or respond, is as if you are opening the mail box to check over and over again if the letter has really been sent.

mail box

You are also absolutely right that “living in the moment and accepting where we are now” is part of the process. I would add to “accepting” “and loving what is”. We need to start living in this moment in time what we want to create. If we want respect, we need to make sure we are respecting ourselves and others. If we want more abundance, the fastest way to get it is to focus on all the abundance we already have. If we want love, we need to love ourselves and be loving with others. Be love and you can’t help but attract it. Feel abundant, happy, healthy and so on and you will create more of it.

Sometimes we want something but our higher self has a different plan for us. A typical and a bit overused example is when we want to win the lottery. Is it really the million dollar win which we want, or is it rather the feeling such an abundance of money would give us? Maybe it’s a feeling of freedom or opportunities? Maybe we want to stop worrying about money or be able to help others?

Is there another way besides winning a million dollars to give us what we really want? Maybe the learning is to stop worrying about money and to help others with the time and talents we have? Can we start feeling abundant and free and create opportunities independent of money?

Life is not about how things happen but about living to our fullest potential. I do believe the benevolent force we call God wants the best for us now and always. So the trick is to relax into knowing that life just wants to be lived and that we will get what is best in the time and in the way which is best for us. We need to just continue creating as consciously as possible.
