Healing the Emotional Body – Part Two

Embracing one's emotions is the first step in healing negative patterns in the emotional body. There is a reason for all emotions, but trying to figure out the reason with the intellectual mind can sometimes make it more difficult to truly understand what is beneath the surface regarding your feelings.

There is a great method for figuring out whether or not you have unresolved emotional issues. If you have a physical body (and we suspect you do since you are using it to read this), then you have unresolved emotional issues. The difference between an emotionally enlightened individual and one who is ruled by his emotions is very simple. The enlightened person identifies with the Higher Self and views the emotions as merely one level of human experience, no better or worse than any other level. The enlightened soul might say, “I am a powerful, creative spiritual being currently experiencing anger,” while the unenlightened person might say, “I am an angry person.” The unenlightened person sees himself in terms of his anger. To her, the anger is a part of the self, and not just an experience to be felt, understood and released. In other words, she has become identified with her anger.

All emotions involve energy moving through the body. Intense emotions involve intense energy. It is important to simply be aware of theenergy and to observe, without judgment, as it reveals itself and what is behind or beyond it. In most cases, negative emotions arise from the belief in separation going back to Original Cause. There are many secondary emotions that seem to hide the root cause. For example, if you feel anger, you might be operating from the belief that someone or something can threaten your well-being. This belief, in turn, comes from the belief in separation. If you know you are a powerful, creative, spiritual being then you know that nothing or nobody can threaten your well-being.

Of course, in this world your body can be threatened, either by natural or man-made disasters, war, pollution, etc. An emotionally enlightened person recognizes this and takes appropriate action to protect the body, without resorting to incessant demands for security, shutting down of one's love and compassion, or living in constant fear of what might happen in the next moment.

The body has its own built-in intelligence. It senses danger more quickly than the intellectual mind. If the emotions are healed, then the psychic senses are very acute and will alert you to possible real danger. Most fear arises not from actual danger, but from old emotional patterns that trigger the fight or flight response in the human organism. Unless someone is pointing a gun at your head, or you have stumbled into a tiger's den, or your boat is sinking in a fierce storm, you are probably not in any real danger right now. Yet you probably have various forms of fear operating just below the surface of your consciousness.

When healing emotions, it is important to be a true scientist. Investigate the feelings. Find out what is generating them. See how they move in the body. What triggers them? What is the relationship between the body, mind and emotions? What belief systems are involved?

We are not suggesting you immerse yourself with intense psychoanalysis, or obsess over your feelings. However, the minute a negative emotion arises, ask your Higher Self to help you understand the emotion. Be with it. Become One with it. Love it. Then let it go and return to your True Self.

Closely related to the emotional body is the mental realm, which we will now examine.
