Clients are coming to me with physical problems. And Doctors are sometimes bewildered, as there seems to be no medical reason. Or there is a medical issue but the client has no recollection of any physical trauma. Sometimes the client knows how it came about, others are grasping for ideas.
I don’t pretend to know. Often underlying this pain is a need to express emotion and to let go of an experience they’ve been holding onto for years.
You see—the feeling that cannot find its expression in tears, will cause other organs to weep.(Marisa Peer-Rapid Transformational Therapy)
Feelings that are suppressed have to find an expression, an outlet through your body.
You can suppress your feelings but you can’t eradicate them, and when you won’t speak your feelings, your body has to express them for you. So anger, hurt, worry, all suppressed feelings begin to express themselves as either neck pain, back pain, headache, stomach ache, anxiety etc.
Neck Pain For 20 Odd Years Cleared After Releasing Childhood Trauma
A client in his late 20s came to me complaining of a neck pain he had for most of his life. He worked out; he lived a healthy lifestyle and was physically fit. But he had no idea why he had this neck pain. In a session he was taken back to a time when he got into a scuffle much earlier on in his life.
It had impacted him more than he had thought. There was no physical injury incurred. Only the pain he held onto, from having the fight with his arch enemy from childhood. It is the meaning we put on the experience at the time, rather than the experience itself.
As an adult in the clear light of day, we can then look at that and go ok, well there is no need for that to affect me anymore. For others it can be a lifetime of not saying what they want, whether to parents, friends, and/or spouses.
Expression of Feeling Allows Pain Release
By expressing your feelings appropriately, and acknowledging that you or your feelings have been hurt, this will help you live a less stressful life. Stress is unexpressed feelings. So first of all be honest with yourself and acknowledge what is going on. By expressing your hurt, loneliness, your feelings no longer need to find an outlet in your body.
But the double whammy is that you feel more at peace with yourself. Your self-esteem is better. Those thoughts of injustice, or I’m lonely, or I’m not good enough, stop. Because you’ve expressed yourself, they are out there in the open and now healing can happen.
The two most powerful words in the world are Let Go. Letting go and relaxing, truly relaxing the mind, letting go of the negative self-talk that serves no one.
Allow yourself to speak up.
