Emotions, which can be more simply explained as energy patterns, are expressed or repressed for various reasons. These reasons can be either internal or external, real or perceived. They are natural and normal responses that have an effect on the nervous system and subsequently on all of the other systems in the body. Emotions arise as responses to stimuli from the words we say or hear, to our thoughts or what we think others are thinking, and as a result of our physical actions. Emotions can feed off each other and grow uncontrollably. Some emotions lead to negative behaviors and others result in positive behaviors.
For example, empathy is a pattern that moves one to practice patience, kindness and understanding. Contempt, on the other hand, moves one to practice disregard, arrogance and inconsideration. When we become entangled in and held prisoner to our emotions, they send us on a rollercoaster ride of feeling “on top of the world” one moment and then down on ourselves because “nobody cares or likes us” the next .
Emotional freedom begins when one can let go of trapped emotions and allow the many emotions that come and go throughout the day to do just that: to come, serve their purpose of moving us into action—conscious action—and then be released. When trapped emotions are released, we can better manage the normal daily flow of energy by identifying and dealing with new emotions as they emerge. We can then acknowledge and use emerging emotions to respond in an appropriate manner, being fully conscious of what we are feeling and expressing in the moment.
