Emotions play an important role in good health. From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective much dis-ease is caused
by emotional repression. The repressed emotions get held in the
organs of the body and each emotion is associated with a
particular organ. The liver stores anger, the kidneys hold fear,
the spleen holds worry, the lungs hold grief and sadness and
repressed emotions in the heart can cause depression and lack of
joy. In Chinese Medicine the emotions are not good or bad but
just part of being human.
Unfortunately many children are taught from an early age that
emotions are bad and they learn to suppress them. When the
emotions are repressed they create energetic blockages in the
associated organ. When this happens it can slow down circulation
to the organ and toxins can build up. For example when sadness
is repressed it can cause problems with the lungs and
respiratory problems may result. Repressing fear can cause
blockages in the kidneys that may lead to reproductive, bone,
ear and other problems. Holding in emotions will correspond with
possible problems in the related organ.
What is the proper way to deal with the emotions? The first
thing is making them ok and letting them be and not making
oneself or the emotion wrong or bad. The emotion just is.
Observing the emotion and fully feeling it is the way not to
store the emotion in the body. There are three primary emotions,
anger, fear and sadness. Acting appropriately when feeling
emotional is important. If feeling angry then acknowledge and
feel the anger and don't lash out at others. If feelings of
sadness come up then let the tears come up if it is a safe place
to do it. We don't want to be crying in situations that aren't
supportive and places like the workplace are generally not a
good place to do it. If sadness comes up and we can't express it
then when we have time later when we go home we can play the
scenario over in our head and let the sadness come out there.
There are certain body feelings that can be signs that we are
repressing an emotion. If we are feeling anxious then we can be
repressing fear and other emotions. Anxiety is not an emotion
but a resistance to feeling the emotion. The anxiety is acting
like a lid on a pressure cooker keeping the emotions from
surfacing. We can ask ourselves what emotion am I repressing and
then ask something like, am I repressing fear, and just say I am
feeling fear. When we hit on the right emotion then the fear can
begin to loosen and the anxiety will go away and the feeling of
fear will be predominant. When we fully feel the fear then fear
will eventually dissipate and often it can happen very quickly.
Irritation is another sign that we may be repressing anger.
Again the irritation is like a lid on the emotion. If we just
acknowledge we are feeling angry then it can begin to release.
When we start doing this it can take some time to feel the
emotions because we may have spent years repressing them.
When we fully experience the emotion we then can begin to feel
peace. In the beginning there may be many repressed emotions
that need to released. It takes a tremendous amount of energy to
repress our emotions and when we release the repressed emotions
we can have a lot more energy and improve our health because we
are releasing the blockages.
One of the ways that can help to release the repressed emotions
and regain health and vitality is through Distant Qigong Energy
