What are trapped emotions?
A trapped emotion is a ball or clump of energy which gets lodged in various parts of our body. They have their own energy fields and pulsates the energy of the emotion for as long as it is there. This distorts the energy field of the body, exerting a harmful influence on the physical tissues which often cause pain and/or contribute to the creation of problems such as illnesses and diseases, anxiety, depression and emotional self-sabotage which block us from prosperity, success, good health, wealth, happiness, fulfilling relationships etc.
Releasing these trapped emotions helps the body to heal physically and emotionally and problems often disappear or become much easier to handle.
We trap energies throughout our lives creating blocking beliefs which are buried deep within our sub-conscious mind. They may date back to the time we were conceived when we inherited them from our parents. In many instances, our parents may have inherited trapped emotions from their parents and this line of emotional inheritance may go back several generations.
Between birth and 2 years of age, we absorb the energy of the feelings and emotions of those around us. This continues, although to a lesser degree, throughout our lives.
When we come into our own and become more consciously aware, we trap our own emotions from incidents we experience.
We also continue to absorb energies from people around us and from whatever is going on around us.
In fact, our adult lives are influenced (often governed) by the emotions we trapped during the first 7 years of our lives. Needless to say, many of those emotions could have been distorted views of adult issues which were going on around us as seen through a child’s eyes. And once they are embedded in our subconscious mind, they will continue to affect us throughout our lives. Of course, many children may have had traumatic experiences of their own but the fact is that whatever the intensity of the emotion, they will all have an impact on the adult life..
We trap emotions when we are faced with a situation we cannot handle. That is, we trap the energy of that emotion into our physical body. This happens on a subconscious level. The intensity of the emotion is relative to the age when the incident or situation was experienced and, although the incidemt might appear trivial to an adult, the impact of these emotions can be extremely limiting in later life.
For instance, a child who was frightened by a story, a thunderbolt or a barking dog traps the emotion “Fear”. In adult life, the energy of that trapped emotion Fear can have devastating implications, the person being held back from achieving practically everything in life because of the sub-conscious energy of Fear that is playing in the background. It could show up as Fear of Success, Fear of Receiving Praise, Fear of Expression, Fear of Commitment, Fear of Receiving, etc.
How trapped emotions affect us
It is possible that whatever is eluding us may be caused by our fear of having it. Not the doubts we have now, but the energy of Fear we trapped in childhood which is still within us and continuing to affect us, in ways we would never have imagined, in adult life. It is simply our subconscious mind’s way of keeping us safe. Because the subconscious mind cannot rationalize, it will be applied to any and all situations and we will continue to be affected by its negative impact … that is, until we release these trapped emotional blocks,
So when we notice that we are attracting things we don’t like or want into our lives, it is something within ourselves that is attracting them. It IS hard to believe that WE are actually responsible for attracting the ill health, the difficult relationships, the inability to achieve, the financial stress and/or other disharmonies we may be experiencing into our lives. But it is one of the basic Laws of the Universe and we can use these “indicators” to our advantage to find and release the energies behind them so we can live happy, healthy, fulfilled lives.
The experience which trapped a particular emotion may have faded over time and we may have moved on. To our conscious mind, it is an event we no longer remember or have, perhaps, deliberately forgotten. However, this is not the case. Every incident we have experienced, whether it is small, big, important or otherwise, is imprinted in our subconscious mind in minute detail. So the emotion of that particular "forgotten" incident which we trapped a long time ago, is still within us and may well be the reason for the discomfort and/or lack we are experiencing in our lives. This discord may take the form of poor health, inability to be successful or prosperous, inability to have our dream career, the perfect relationship or whatever else we are unable to have or achieve to our satisfaction.
This is what Dr Bradley Nelson, the founder of the Emotion Code and The Body Code says:
“It is my experience that trapped emotions can exert an astonishing influence over the tissues of the body. What happens when those tissues are continually irritated over time? The first symptom is often pain or subtle malfunction which can be difficult to detect. If tissues are irritated over a long period of time, the tissue may eventually enter into a state of metaplasia, or change. In other words, the specific type of cell begins to revert back to a more primitive cell. The next step is malignancy, or cancer.
While there are a variety of things that are thought to cause cancer, I believe firmly that trapped emotions are a contributing factor to the disease process, as I believe they are to many, if not most other diseases.”
Thought = Feeling = Emotion = Belief (usually hidden or unconscious)
If a subconscious belief is not congruent with what we want, it becomes a barrier to our success in achieving it. As the saying goes “You are what you believe.” and while we are fully aware of our conscious beliefs, our embedded subconscious beliefs actually might surprise us.
For instance, some of them may not even be ours if we absorbed them from someone else when we were very young.
Some common beliefs that children trap are Rejection, Fear, Guilt, Abandonment. Being Unloved, What actually happened may not have been serious enough to be catagorised as such but the child’s subconscious mind interpreted the experience that way.
Again. please be aware that many children do experience extremely difficult and/or traumatic situations and the trapped emotions would be completely validated.
Fortunately, it is now possible to minimise the impact of trapped emotions so they don't affect lives adversely, years down the track.
Every thought and feeling we have is connected to a morphic field.
What is a morphic field?
When 2 people have the same thought or belief, it forms a morphic field of 2. And when there are more people, often millions, with the same views on a subject, the morphic field becomes very powerful. This is also known as collective consciousness.
Advertising relies heavily on the colletive consciousness of people attracted to their advertised products to escalate sales.
Media reporting, tends to focus on bad news causing readers to automatically think of and discuss the negative stories which escalates the situation because it is being fuelled by the negative collective consciousness of what is being reported.
So, to attract the things we want in our lives, we need to connect to good, wholesome, happy morphic fields.
