For Lightworkers - How to Release Emotional Baggage
Releasing your emotional baggage, behaviour patterns and belief systems leads to
emotional maturity. Emotional maturity leads to Enlightenment and Ascension.
So where does your emotional baggage come from? Your emotional patterns foe this
life are set from your perceptions or misperceptions about reality or what was happening
from in the womb to the age of six years of age. These are the emotional experiences
of the Inner Child. These patterns will repeat themselves throughout your life, be
added to with each repeat scenario until you have a many faceted, complex emotional
Releasing your Inner Child emotions is, very painful, takes courage and people on
the whole prefer to ignore and bury them. How ever unless you face them and let them
go you will not progress. Also stored emotional baggage causes dis-ease.
Behaviour patterns are something we are born into, each family, village, society,
country and planet has its own behaviour patterns. Patterns of how to think and live
Belief systems also come from, religion, society, education, parental influences,
peer pressure. Both belief systems and behaviour patterns have to be acknowledged,
owned and released to unclutter your mind. When you have un cluttered your mind you
can go within without all the mental chatter. When you can go within you can more
easily open up to your internal dialogues of intuition, and your higher self.
So back to emotional baggage the starting point of the journey. Emotions are energy.
We store our emotions in our physical body. Hence the great number of bodywork therapies
that exist to unlock them. However the therapies may bring your issues to the forefront
of your mind but you have to do the work to release them.
How do you do this? However painful it is you have to feel the feeling associated
with the issue, it may be anger, grief, and frustration. You then have to acknowledge
that this is yours, own it. As you do this the energy begins to move. Sometimes it
helps to sob; wracking cries very quickly shifts the energy, and in a trice it’s
all over and the feeling has gone. Deep breathing in to the feeling also will help
move it. When an issue is coming up it may take days to materialise, bubbling away
under the surface, you will feel out of sorts and irritable. Once you have done this
once or twice you soon get to recognise it. Have faith, set the intention that you
will clear it, and worry at it like a jack Russell and you will swiftly bring it
to the fore. It may help to write it down to help you to acknowledge the issue. The
issue once it has gone you may think that that is the end of that one, I am sorry
to say that it may well arise for a second time or third because it is huge, complex
and many faceted and you can only clear a bit at a time.
If you don’t go to body therapists how can you identify your issues? Well your family
are the ones who serve you in this because they push your buttons the most, friends
and work colleagues also help. You have to be alert and be on watch if your are serious
about doing this work. For day to day incidents cause issues to arise. Your higher
self will make sure of that. This being on watch is what the Dalai Llama calls mindfulness.
Is there an end to this, it can take several years. Yes there is an end; eventually
you clear all your emotional baggage. People and incidents that use to bother you
no longer have any effect.
This is hard diligent work. Let no teacher tell you that the road to enlightenment
is easy. Attunements to ever higher vibrational frequencies is not the answer unless
you do the work associated with each attunement. Then you will have balance in your
emotional, mental and spiritual bodies and this will lead to enlightenment.
Cleansing yourself of your emotional issues/baggage inevitably leads to emotional
maturity. , then a whole new awareness occurs.
