Transform Your Life Let Go of Negative Emotions

What are Negative Emotions

A negative emotion is any emotion that feels bad. Examples are anger, sadness, fear, guilt, hurt, rage, humiliation, etc.

Please understand that negative emotions are not bad emotions. Every emotion is valid and has a time and a place where it is appropriate and useful.

Hanging on to negative emotions from the past, however, is never useful.

Most people have not learned the skill to process their negative emotions properly so they end up with large amounts of emotional baggage. The amount of their emotional baggage tends to increase with age and is a major contributor to the ageing process.

When we are faced with large volumes of unpleasant emotions our nervous system can become overwhelmed and shuts down as a safety measure. This protects us from having a heart attack, a nervous breakdown or some other debilitating experience. Unfortunately this tends to result in emotional pain being stored in our nervous system.

This stored emotional pain gets triggered periodically, often at the most inconvenient times. The reason this suppressed pain resurfaces in our consciousness is because it needs to be healed. Unfortunately our soul’s urge to heal is often ignored and we bury the stored pain even deeper in our unconscious.

Out of sight, out of (conscious) mind. Most people mistakenly believe that they can safely ignore these suppressed emotions. Little do they realize just what a high price they pay on a daily basis by avoiding the processing of these suppressed emotions.

Most of our choices are habitual, or unconscious. Another way to say this is that you aren’t even aware of most of the choices you make. Our unconscious mind is our powerful autopilot and it is responsible for executing habitual behavior.

All of our choices, whether conscious or unconscious are driven by the desire to avoid pain and attract pleasure. – Klaus Ruhl

Suppressed emotions and self sabotage

By storing unresolved, inappropriate pain associations in our unconscious we are sowing the seed of powerful and lasting self sabotage. The further we drive this unresolved pain into our unconscious the harder it becomes to resolve in the future.

For example, your relationship turns sour and ends up in a less than pleasant breakup. Some of the associated emotional pain is suppressed and is pushed into your subconscious.

You may not be aware of it, or at best you are partially aware, but from this point forward you have an emotional resistance to getting into another relationship. Your unconscious is simply trying to protect you from experiencing another painful breakup in the future.

Unfortunately this protective mechanism now shows up as self sabotaging behavior whenever you explore a new relationship.

While the suppressed emotions are helping to protect you from having another painful relationship breakup they are also taking away the potential for having an amazing, loving and fulfilling relationship in the future. A very high price to pay!

So what’s a girl or guy to do?

To resolve this issue the stored emotional pain or emotional charge needs to be released. This is traditionally achieved through meditative techniques. Unfortunately, meditation, while effective, can be rather slow, especially for beginners.

Fortunately we now have access to some amazing therapies that can disarm these suppressed emotional time bombs quickly, easily and rather pleasantly.

One of the best techniques in this area is Timeline Therapy, which is essentially an advanced hypnotherapy technique. Timeline Therapy leverages the enormous power of your unconscious mind to resolve the backlog of unresolved emotional pain stored in your nervous system. This removes the inappropriate pain associations stored in your nervous system. As a result the self sabotaging behavior stops and you are free to pursue the love of your life.

Oh, and the best part is your mind actually extracts powerful new insights as it processes the backlog of emotional pain. This preserves the protective aspect that caused the emotional pain to be retained in the first place. So now you have access to powerful lessons from the past without the debilitation trauma in your nervous system and zero self sabotage. Life is good! Life is transformed!

Hypnotherapy Can Change Genetic Coding

The new field of epigenetics shows that people enter the world with a particular genetic code, but genes are activated or not due to environmental influences. Epigenetic changes can be transmitted from one generation to another, which is rather faster than the evolutionary changes resulting from natural selection. Epigenetics turns on its head the conventional wisdom of genetic determinism, the belief that genes predetermine biological and behavioral traits.

An example is that the brain plasticity of fruit flies is related to the size of the social group in which the fly lives: nothing does more for brain plasticity than the presence of others of the same species. Nature found that communications between genes and brains were so useful that epigenetics applies to species from flies to humans. Epigenetics has profound implications for the understanding of psychosocial genomics of human behavior: relationships within families and other groups.

Diet is one of the most easily studied environmental factors which produces epigenetic change. Nutrients in food enter metabolic pathways and are into transformed into molecules which can be employed by the body. One such pathway creates methyl groups, which are important epigenetic “markers” that silence genes. B vitamins, folic acid, and SAM-e (S-Adenosyl methionine, a popular supplement available over the counter) are key elements of methyl creation. Diets rich in these nutrients can quickly change gene expression.

Dr. Bruce Lipton is the leading figure in epigenetics, which he described in his book, The Biology of Beliefs. He demonstrated that perceptions transmit signals to the brain which determine the biology of our bodies. While genes control our biology, they are controlled by external signals. Changing beliefs or perceptions sends completely different messages to our cells.

Dr. Lipton’s work dictates that if healing is to be successful, it must have a spiritual content. It is estimated that 70 percent of people’s thoughts are negative or redundant and 95 percent of life activity stems from the subconscious. Changing thought patterns will improve gene responses.

Less than two percent of the human genome accounts for heredity. Until quite recently, the remaining 98 percent was believed to be “junk” DNA, but it is now known to consist of DNA sequences called introns, which control traits, including disease processes. They are, in effect, switches which activate or silence particular genes. Plotsky et al found changes to receptors in mice which were separated from their mother for four hours a day.

Hypnotherapy has shown how the subconscious exercises influence over molecules. Hypnosis could be the primary force which acts upon behavioral epigenetics. Positive epigenetic results can be achieved by asking the subconscious mind what oppresses it and changing perceptions of our environments. Hypnotherapy is obviously useful here, because it gives access to the subconscious. Removing stress is key to successful epigenetics, and hypnotherapy is a proven tool in this respect, along with neuro-linguistic programming. If stress is not deleted, epigenetics says it can be passed to subsequent generations. This was proven by psychologist Rachel Yehuda of New York’s Mount Sinai School of Medicine, who studied women who were pregnant and present inside or near the World Trade Center at the time of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
