Our Emotional Health
Healing does not often mean instant restoration.
Sometimes one must undergo a worsening condition before it is alleviated.
If there is an emotional wound that is hidden deep within your mind, then the healing will take place in stages.
Like a story, the chapter begins with a problem which rises to its climax until its resolution.
Through observing my own healing process, I’ve discovered a pattern that takes 3 important stages.
Emotional Block and What It Can Do
Emotion is energy in motion.
When a part of our emotions are not let go, it stays in the body and wreak havoc on our energy.
Emotions can guide us but it can also block us.
If we have not learned why an emotion is not leaving, then we must seek to understand it.
An emotional blockage means that something is stuck.
Understanding and acceptances opens the passage for healing.
Here are the 3 stages of healing.
The 3 Stages of Emotional Healing
Like the beginning of a story, you are beginning to become aware of the emotional hurt.
But having awareness does not end the hurt.
In fact, once you take awareness you notice how painful it truly is.
Sometimes you find yourself asking “Why” and “How does it come to this”.
It might even appear that it’s happening everywhere you go.
This is the stage where you find out how to solve the emotional wound, but you don’t yet know how.
In order for healing to occur, the dis-ease must rise up to the surface.
Therefore, it’s only natural that you will experience the hurt more intensely than before.
During this time, stay strong even though it feels like you want to step down.
After working through the emotions, you will find a sense of clarity.
It may come from yourself, from others, or from your own subconscious mind and Higher Self.
You’ll begin to accept your vulnerability and you may share it with others.
It’s also the stage for changing yourself, leaving a toxic relationship, or mending relationships.
Whatever it is, you know the cause and you are beginning to make a change.
This is also known as catharsis.
During this process, you flush out all of the tensions.
You release all the subconscious wounds.
At the end of the storms, there is a rainbow.
You learn to accept and move on.
You no longer hold onto the hurt of the past.
There is newfound perspective that looks and feels different.
Most likely, it’s a turning point in your transformation life – the day you face the mountain views with grace and gratitude.
Even though the events and people who hurt you still act the way they do, they no longer have the same impact as before.
You’ll have learned an important lesson in your life.
And such is the end of the healing process and the beginning of a new health.
Not All Healing Plays the Same
Some healing are instantaneous.
Others will be take some time.
The longer the wound, the stronger the repression.
And so that is where the 3 stages of emotional healing is most effective.
