If your life experience is full of one problem after the next, it's safe to say you may have emotional wounds. Old wounds create and shape your current experiences. Let's clean them up and heal them pronto, so you can start experiencing a better life.
Where do emotional wounds start? I'll give you one guess.. Yep..the voice of the mind. When things happen in our experience that are traumatic, startling, sad, scary, our body responds naturally by having an emotional response. ...In the absence of the mind, these emotions would run their course and then fade and release from the body.
Unfortunately, we are up against the voice in the head that will talk about what just happened for hours, days, years. Each time we listen and agree with the story being built around the experience, our emotional body responds by having the original emotional response over and over but with less and less intensity. The intensity is less because it is now only mind created. By mind created I mean only happening in our memory, not our real experience.
For example, say you were in a car accident. Initially you would have an emotional fear reaction, or shock. Everything begins to settle down after the accident, and here enters the mind. It may start to replay the scary memory for you over and over which serves no purpose but to help you feel the intense fear over and over. Then it may want to go to blame if you were in the accident with another car. It may create stories for you where you are the victim. Now it may use stories that build resentment.
The event, start to finish, was actually only about 10 minutes out of your life, but thanks to the mind, you are now suffering emotionally from what happened for years afterward. An emotional wound has been created by believing the stories and interpretations of the mind and you find yourself, unable to let it go. You have now attached to the mind created story and adopted it as your personal story. You may even make it part of an identity of you. If you feel you have emotional wounds that were created by believing the minds stories around the event, refer to the previous article on releasing emotions and healing old wounds.
Old wounds are like vibrational beacons that send out the vibration of all the emotions wrapped up in it. These vibrations set up experiences in your outer world to enable you to revisit this wound over and over until you decide to let it go. Life will continuously tell you what wounds you have by bringing situation after situation that pokes at these wounds until you agree to heal them and change to a perspective of truth. Once healed, your life begins to attract better, more fun and enjoyable experiences. A.J
