Releasing Negative Emotions From Your Psyche

Negative emotions impact our physical and mental health. Feelings such as resentment, bitterness, anger, disgust do affect our health, to prove this to yourself just ask someone to stand in front of you and let them know your want to carry out an experiment.  Ask them to place an arm in front of their body and think of someone or something that makes them happy, push down on their arm at the wrist and feel their physical strength.  Now, ask them to think of something or someone that really upsets them or someone they harbour negative feelings towards, do the exercise again, press down on their wrist – you will find that their strength is depleted – this is how destructive negative thoughts/thinking has on your physical body – so imagine remaining in a state of resentment for days, weeks, months or even years.  Imagine the cumulative negative impact on your body and consequently your health. It’s quite frightening when you grasp how you are the creator of much your ill health.

Bitterness, resentment, anger and any negative emotion takes from you.  In fact, if you are harbouring these feeling towards another, then you are ultimately handing over your power to them!  Consider this statement.  It is profound but true.

Your thoughts can and do affect you.

If you are harbouring these emotional states you can release them through forgiveness.  Forgiveness is letting go, releasing the negative power that these people of companies hold over you.  Forgiveness does not require you to apologise to this person/persons or company, its simply a process which sets you free, because when you harbour ill feeling you are energetically connected to the people/s or event, in fact YOU are holding you back.

At no time am I suggesting that you should forget all about the cause of your negative emotions, what I am saying is that forgiveness disconnects your , but energetic connection which should set you free.

You really have nothing to lose by considering these statements and taking mental action.

There are two exercises you can try – you may need to do them several times until you actually feel a shift in your heart and your energy.

  1. Take a piece of paper and write down the “thing” that makes you resentful, angry, frustrated, bitter or any other negative emotional state. Feel where you feel the feeling in your body, is it your chest (heart), throat, stomach or perhaps your head.
  2. Write down where you feel this feeling.
  3. Think about the person, event, or company/business/agency become aware of the thoughts that may be popping in your head. After all if you have harboured these feeling for years, you unconscious mind is not going to let go so easily.
  4. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and visualise the event or person in front of you, if you start to feel anxious, remember where you are. Bring yourself back to the present, remembering that you are in control!!!  – don’t buy into or become part of the scene, view the event or person with indifference… steady your breath, now visualise the event or person shrinking, becoming smaller, smaller, much much smaller until it is but a speck.  View the speck from all angles, move around it, there is nothing to see because it is so small.  Say to yourself –“ I set this (name the event or person) free from my mind, it no longer needs to reside there”   Feel the feelings of letting go.

If you don’t feel forgiveness right away, practice the technique again at another time. If you have harboured these feeling or thoughts for weeks, months, years or decades your subconscious mind needs to change its belief. Continue to rehearse this practice until you are totally disassociated from the emotion.    Even if it takes weeks or months, it’s worth staying with the practice. The benefits will be worth it.
