Beginning to heal emotional blockages...
Step #1: Understand What Emotions Really Are
We are often taught to categorize all emotions as different. But a great way to begin to clear emotional blockages is to understand emotions as being a spectrum of emotions in which love and fear act as the polar ends. Really these are only two emotions we all feel at any given time.
If you think about it deeply, you will see that this is absolutely right.
Anger, it usually rooted in the fact that that we feel as if our god-given right to be loved unconditionally was violated or withheld. We choose fear, not love.
Anxiety, it is usually rooted in the fact that we fear that any decision we make may result in a situation in which either we are not going to be loved fully or completely, or in which we will not have the capacity to love our life fully or completely. It also usually means we feel that this situation we are currently in is not a situation we can completely love, so we choose to be afraid of the present and desire to leave it as soon as possible. When we are anxious we choose fear, not love.
Sadness it is usually rooted in the fact that we have lost someone or something we love– or that made us feel deeply loved. We fear that love has left us somehow and we are not wholly and fully loved anymore. Thus, sadness is choosing fear and not love.
Frustration is when we believe people, or life in general, are not behaving in the way we might expect. We all somehow believe that life should always be completely and totally loving towards us. So when it isn't we experience a negative emotion. We equate it with love being withheld from us, which makes us feel afraid. Thus even frustration is a choice of fear over love.
If you are feeling emotionally blocked at the moment, understand that this means you have chosen fear over love. 💛
