Gaston's Amber Pederson on Trapped Emotions and Physical Health

Feb 02, 2021 03:02PM ● By Amber Pederson

If we break down the word “e-motion”, it can be described as energy in motion. Just as everything in the universe is made up of energy—from a chair to the cells in our body and our thoughts—so too, are emotions. The frequency at which a given emotion vibrates will determine its effect on the body. High-vibration emotions such as gratitude, joy and love elevate our energy while low-vibration emotions such as fear, guilt and shame decrease our energy.

In some instances, instead of experiencing an emotion and moving on, the emotion remains within the body and can create not only emotional stress, but physical imbalances, as well. Trapped emotions can lead to negative energy and disruptions within the body. These emotions can have a heaviness to them that can weigh us down, make us feel depressed or anxious, and lead to disease and dysfunction.

For example, physical pain is our body’s way of alerting us of some kind of malfunction occurring. It is thought by some that many diseases and pain are to some extent a physical manifestation of trapped negative energy or emotions within us. We may not even be aware of the emotion we are holding onto because it occurred sometime in our past.

Fortunately, there are many healing modalities that can assist in releasing trapped emotions from the body. One modality may work great for one person and hardly at all for another. Start with the modality that is the most appealing and explore others to find what works best.

Healing modalities that can aid in releasing trapped emotions include reiki, Emotion Code, Bowen Release, chiropracticacupuncture, Emotional Freedom Technique, Sacro Occipital Technique, massage therapy, shadow work and shamanic journeying.
