We feel stressed when we are out of alignment with what is occurring in our lives. When we are no longer present with what is, we begin to feel tension building up within us. It has been proven that this tension has an unbelievable impact on our health and wellbeing. Stress leads to physical disease.
That physical disease is manifesting out of emotional dis-ease. When we stop being present and accepting what is happening we end up out of alignment with the moment. Negative emotion arises telling us that we are not viewing our experience through the eyes of soul. The negative emotion is simply there informing us to choose again.
The tension comes when we do not listen to that emotion. We shove the emotion down and continue plowing forward without allowing ourselves to feel, hear the message, and come into alignment. We feel that we have to deal with the situation or should behave in a certain way and as a result bury the emotion.
Once the emotion is shoved down the true stress begins. Now we have to continue holding that down – like a beach ball under the water. If we aren’t careful the negative emotion will come blasting to the surface. This causes stress. We continue to move forward without addressing the underlying cause of the negative emotion and then make it worse by creating all of this tension inside.
We walk around plowing forward with actions rather than taking a moment to allow the emotion to rise to the surface. If we could just be with the uncomfortable feeling and listen to its message, then we could reduce our stress and feel so much better. The stress we are increasingly feeling in our society is making us sick, but we have the power to change that by letting go of our resistance to our feelings.
Let your emotions rise to the surface and really feel them. What are they telling you? Your feelings are your guidance system and hold the wisdom to lead you into alignment and greater wellbeing and fulfillment. Want to learn more?
