When we hold onto past trauma or pain, the chakras or energy anatomy can cause harm to our bodies and minds.
We've known it for thousands of years. Yet, some of us seem unable to let go. Bad breakups, divorce, emotional pain, trauma, regrets, anger, blame, revenge.
All sorts of things can get stored in your body as negative energy, often things that are not your fault, like:
- job loss (even years afterward)
- a lack of physical intimacy, which creates bitterness and low self-esteem
- chaos and anger between your parents
- your upbringing, which can cause your inner child to hide away
- being cheated on
It doesn't end there. Negative energy can result from:
- abusive relationships
- criticism (including the criticism you give)
- feeling unworthy
- not learning from experiences
- lack of self-love
- lack of faith or spiritualism
Holding on to negative energy
We've all experienced something that created negative energy in our lives. Most of us choose to ignore them or lock them in a box in our minds.
In reality, that negative energy gets stored within us, in different parts of our bodies.
Some of us take antidepressants for years and still experience the emotions we felt in our past. Constant exposure to negative stories on the daily news doesn't help.
Most of us suffer in silence, wearing false smiles on our faces. Yet, we're all experiencing problems with finances, family, friends, security, and self-confidence.
I am sure that most of us are asking ourselves: why must we suffer? Why are we here? Our mission is to love all, to love each other, and be as one. Of course, it's hard to do when negative energy weighs us down and holds us back.
