Emotions are energy and energy has to go somewhere. So when you suppress that energy (your emotion) instead of expressing that energy, it sits in your body and causes it to deteriorate. Okay that sounds harsh, but it’s true.
“Energy Cannot Be Created or Destroyed It Can Only Convert From One Form to Another”
– Albert Einstein
Emotions have a vibration. So if you suppress that vibration, you are now a point of attraction for that energy vibration. And as you know the universe must match the energy vibration we are putting off. The only emotions you can heal are the ones you let yourself feel and express.
In order to feel our emotions we must be willing to risk vulnerability. And of course vulnerability can be difficult especially when most of us equate vulnerability with being hurt. Therefore, for many it may seem risky for us to come into touch with our emotions.
What is vulnerability?
The definition of vulnerability is being, “Capable of or susceptible to being wounded or hurt.”
This definition is totally misleading hence the reason there is so many defensive, combative people in this world. I’m not saying that one has to be defenseless, of course you need to love and take care of yourself and not let people walk over you. But it’s a matter of being absolutely honest with yourself about how you feel. No filters!
Vulnerability is in fact that raw space that we are so uncomfortable with, that we try to numb it out with pills, food, alcohol, exercise, drugs or any kind of addiction. You cannot heal any situation you want to heal in your life if you’re not willing to risk vulnerability. Healing depends on your willingness to express the complete truth of how you feel.
“The Power of Vulnerability” is awesome 20 minute TED talk by Dr. Brene Brown. She examines vulnerability, courage, imperfection and shame from a very practical perspective. Hope you enjoy.
