We live day by day, emotion by emotion, and sometimes these emotions are negative.
We wake up tired and annoyed that the alarm clock went off, anxiety when we are running late for work, fear and anxiety when we don’t meet our deadlines, joy and excitement when it’s Friday afternoon in anticipation of our weekend plans… and back to dread on Sunday evenings.
But what if we had an extreme negative emotion years ago that is still causing us physical pain somewhere in the body, or causing chronic digestion issues, or inhibiting us from “moving forward” in our life.. and we didn’t even know it.
A traumatic or stressful event in our life can cause negative emotions which in turn can cause long-term issues.
It could be that fight we got into with our new step father 15 years ago, our first romantic heart break, a car accident from childhood, or witnessing a death of a loved one. From that point onwards, we could develop an eating disorder, chronic anxiety, fear of exams, on and off lower back pain, or constantly attracting relationships that are not good for us. The worst part – we don’t even know it.
The strong negative emotions we once had can cause a ripple effect.
So how do we know if past negative emotions are impacting us today?
Look for patterns and issues that are not resolving no matter what you do. Digestion issues even though doctors say everything looks okay after rigorous testing and even after using enzymes and probiotics? Chronic left hip pain even after therapy, losing weight and even after surgery?
Always having a hard time sticking to one job/career? Attracting the same issues while dating? Have you been going for psychotherapy for years but you still have the same underlying issue?
Some type of trauma, even if you are not fully aware of it, might be the issue.
Holistic osteopathy looks at the root of issues we have currently that may have occurred in the distant past due to these strong negative emotions. This process includes finding the exact emotion, when it occurred, and releasing it so that we can move forward free of pain and free of negative decisions and occurrences in our life.
It’s time to free ourselves from the past so we can live a more joyful, fulfilling life.
