While I often write about repressing our emotions, there is another style of dealing with overwhelm. In the past I’ve called it spewing. This is venting it out on others and the environment. Just as repressing doesn’t resolve it, “sharing” it doesn’t help either. What we repress leaks out too, especially through the lower chakras.
Suppression is not a great idea but spewing can be worse. The first is more common in the west but some cultures favour the latter.
For one, spewing on others causes further consequences in obvious and less obvious ways. How others react or poisoning a gathering, for example.
Those consequences also increase because nature grows whatever we feed it. Like chopping off the head of a Hydra, it grows 2 more.
For two, undigested charges spread into the surrounding environment don’t go away as they’ve not been processed yet. They keep their structure, including our energy signature. Various spewing builds up in the environment until nature tries to resolve it through storms, natural disasters, and so forth. Nature processes what we place in her in ways she has available.
Because we’re part of that build-up, that resolution is more likely to have a personal impact.
Energy cannot be destroyed; it can only be transformed. Thus the key to healing is transformation. We transform through experiencing, through conscious experience. We can do this by waiting for the energy to create experiences in our life. Or we can notice our reactivity and seek to resolve that charge internally. The second is smoother and faster and often more complete.
Once resolved, the energy loses its configuration and is freed. It becomes neutral.
Another way to look at transformation is digestion. We have to digest our experiences much like our food. This includes our emotions. If we repress them, they remain undigested and build up as energetic sludge – in us or in the environment (which is also us).
Like trash, it doesn’t go away when we throw it away. It just gets moved somewhere else. It needs to be recycled, transformed.
The transformation process can take place during experiences or later during sleep. That is part of the purpose of sleep and dreams. And it’s why extra rest can be valuable if we’re dealing with a lot.
If fatigue is ongoing, look at your diet and lifestyle. We can get sludged up by poor food digestion too. Antibiotics can heal but mess up the gut biome. Excess stress builds up, effecting other body systems. Getting enough rest is key too.
Repressed emotions also require energy to keep suppressed. Releasing them brings clarity but also frees up a lot of energy. The art of healing is in making what was unconscious conscious enough to be processed without having to live it out in life events. Just surfacing it as the energy or emotion allows us to digest it through experience. In a short time, it is complete along with its karma.
I’ll be posting more on healing shortly.
