Acknowledging emotional pain may seem like an obvious step in the healing process that everyone is already doing. If you’re in pain, you already know it, right?

Not always.

Many of us have a surprising amount of emotional trauma in our energy field that lies below our conscious awareness. In some cases we might be aware of some of the symptoms of an energetic wound within us, but we are unconscious of its deeper CA– USE – a core place of constriction where Life Force is feels blocked.

The effects of this blockage can range from uncomfortable feelings of mild emotional pain at one end of the spectrum to severely debilitating physical and/or mental dis-ease at the more serious end of the spectrum.

unified energy fieldIt is common for us to become practiced at denial of emotional pain in order to function in our lives.

Unconsciously we have learned how to keep the pain at bay so we can “do” our daily lives with some kind of balance.

Often, the energetic imbalance within us actually causes us to create more imbalance as an attempt to gain equilibrium. And our only awareness of this might be a sense of feeling “off” or living our lives with limited inner resources, constantly looking for something outside ourselves to “fix” us.

In order to heal emotional pain, we need to invite it up into our conscious awareness. We need to care enough about ourselves to spend time with ourselves, looking within and truly ‘Being with Ourselves’. Doing this we find an infinite Source of emotional support and wellbeing that is always available to us from within.

Greet yourself with love and understanding.
Acknowledge and celebrate your courage – the part of you that has said
Enough suffering. I’m ready to heal now.”

It takes courage to turn inward and get investigatively honest about what you are really feeling and acknowledge your emotional pain. Usually this doesn’t happen to us until we finally decide we’ve suffered enough. If you have found yourself here and are reading this, then you are at that point – the threshold into healing.

Use the power of your words.

Your words, whether aloud or silent, focus and align your energy in specific directions. Asking inner questions focuses your attention on the answers and calls forth the corresponding material up and out of the unconscious. Below are some examples of questions that are helpful to ask. You can use them if they feel right for you. If not, experiment and find just the right words that are effective for you in investigating your emotional pain.

PATIENCE BANNER

Be patient with this process of becoming aware of your feelings. If you don’t get immediate results, pick just one question and carry it with you as your companion for a day, gently asking it inside whenever you think of it.

Your willingness to do this consistently will gently open your consciousness to aspects of yourself you’ve never been aware of before. It might also be helpful to write out the answers to these questions. Sometimes writing frees up parts of your consciousness in ways that speaking can’t get to.

You can also ask a trusted friend or counselor to meet with you for an hour or two. Ask for an uninterrupted span of their attention where you can explore your answers to these questions aloud, with them simply listening. If you decide to do this, it is important that you choose someone who will not judge you in any way. You can “trade” time and reverse roles with them on another occasion.

Remind yourself that anything that you’re feeling is here for a valid, real reason.

As you begin to experience your emotional pain, remind yourself that there is nothing wrong with you for having this wound. Even if your current experience was triggered by something in present time, the root of it is there because there was something that happened to you in the past that caused real, genuine pain.

Therefore, it is normal, natural and healthy for you to feel whatever it is that you feel.

Future-By-Selena-Mills-for-The-Well-WarriorsDon’t try to interpret or judge the feeling. You don’t need to figure out or decide what something means, whether it is something someone said or did or something you said or did, or a feeling you’re becoming aware of. Mental analysis diverts you off track and into the mind, which won’t be useful in acknowledging the emotional pain.

Remember, our intention here is to acknowledge and feel the ‘Feeling’.

Just be with the feeling itself and give up “fixing” yourself. In order to do this, you need to be willing to BE with yourself, to turn your attention inward. This is about being with yourself and loving and accepting yourself, ‘as you are‘.

No need to get hung up on the past.

No matter what arises, allow and encourage it to come forth. As best you can, stay with the feelings and not the story of what happened in the past. The story will divert you into the mind and remember, your access to the core wound is via the FEELINGS. Just gently bring your attention back to the above questions.

Your Rewards

holy-wallpaperOnce you’ve consciously acknowledged your pain and suffering you have taken a big step toward healing it.

Remember to keep your channel to Source open as you experiment with the suggestions above. The unconditional love and the wound coming together, simultaneously occupying the same space at the same time, is what creates the alchemy of healing.

I’ve seen some amazing miracles happen from this simple process!

Keep calling in Love to this place inside you and gently talk to this part of yourself. Let yourself know you ‘see‘ you. Let yourself know that you see that you never did anything wrong and that you know that you always did the best you could with what you had to work with at the time.

Bring patience, sensitivity and kindness to this part of yourself.

You will release your emotional pain and develop a sweet intimacy with yourself as well as with your Higher Power – the Source of all healing!
