As human beings, we are susceptible to a wide array of energies at any given moment. Some tear at our auric fields, while others mend them. As a species, we have created a society in which to survive, we must deny that which we are completely – vulnerable.
In the United States, it is a social norm that we do not cry in public. If we do, it must be under the following circumstances (we won’t get into gender roles in this article, but we will talk about them soon):
1. We are an infant or young child who needs to either sleep, be fed, or happens to be bleeding;
2. We must be in severe physical pain, which requires a visit to the ER or a hospital stay;
3. In moments of extreme duress, such as the sudden loss of a close loved one, but rarely is it acceptable to have a bout of sobbing over people outside of the immediate family;
Or the most common of all:
4. The silent cry when we are overwhelmed, happy, touched, sad, or a plethora of other feelings.
However, throughout most of our days, we teach ourselves how to deny our hurts, and yet we are surprised that our pleasures are thwarted. We are creatures of balance. When we deny one piece of ourselves, we deny an equal, yet opposite aspect. But things in our world are changing.
In the past few years, there’s been a growing campaign to be politically correct in every vein imaginable. From race to sexual orientation to which Quidditch team you root for, there are terms more socially acceptable and kinder to use than others. This campaign for tolerance, sensitivity, and empathy has even stretched into larger issues that were once deemed rites of passage, such as bullying and hazing. Things that were once accepted as part of life are now being challenged. The interesting part is why.
Recent science suggests that ancestral memory can be transferred via DNA. Because we are resonant beings that interact with our reality by way of frequency, every memory is charged with a specific frequency range that is then felt emotionally. For multitudes of generations, our ancestors suffered at the hands of one another, and part of this change is the depths of repressed emotion rising to the surface to be purged. The younger generations aren’t weaker than the ones that came before them, rather they are carrying the weight of transmutation and creating change for a more positive, more evolved humanity on Earth. The other part of this equation is recognizing what we are.
As humans, we are covered in nerve endings. It is in our very biology to be sensitive. Our physiology helps us decode the energies around us from our environment, our peers, and even ourselves. This is one of the reasons we feel so vulnerable to a new lover; when we expose our skin completely, we are taking in about 100-300% more information (aka: energy) than we do any other time during our day, depending on the season (turtlenecks in winter versus miniskirts in summer). When we try to deny our emotions, we don’t allow them to process properly.
Our bodies being the energetic conductors they are, when we cannot properly process the energy surging through us, we inadvertently short circuit the system. Think of it as emotional adware. When your computer is infected with adware, it slowly starts bogging down your computer until your computer stops working altogether. Then comes a visit to Geek Squad and potentially a bill you didn’t plan on paying that month. This is exactly what happens to your mind and body when you don’t properly process your emotions. The unprocessed emotions nestle in your cells undetected. They slowly start to amass more and more space until you are forced to deal with them, which is difficult because it is painful.
Negative emotions are sharp energies with jagged edges. Have you ever heard of the saying, “He/she cut me with his/her words”? This is an actual reference to the severing of your energetic field by the negative energy you are processing. However, when these energies aren’t properly dealt with, the energies go inward, cutting your energy much deeper than the initial event. Every time these feelings or memories surface (and create a negative response within you), you are being cut all over again. This is why it is so difficult to deal with our past hurts. We have to pull glass shard-like energies out of our field and then heal. It is painful, but necessary.
Crying when you need to is not a sign of weakness, but rather a sign of a healthy human being. As you cry, you release neurotoxins, which means you’re cleaning yourself from the inside out. Think of tears as golden honey running into the cuts of your field, melding the cracks, and healing your hurt. You are a beautiful, sensitive being that is here to experience, express, and evolve. Remember not to cut yourself off from it.
So much love and Big Nonlocal Quantum Hugs!
