Feelings are part of being human. They are not bad or good. Feelings are the results of thoughts, which are based on beliefs. Everyone processes feelings differently. Sometimes, certain kinds of feelings are somewhat unconscious. Your mind has already persuaded you to believe that these feelings are a part of the very fibers that make you—you.

The mind and the emotions you carry are energetic frequencies which have the capability of impacting organ function. As energy beings, all energetic frequencies impact you in some way, whether in mind, body, or spirit. A physical condition is often the manifestation of these heavy, lingering feelings and deep-rooted emotional imbalances.

To impact your health in a positive way, learn how to recognize your true feelings, express your feelings, and let your thoughts flow. In the Five Element Framework, we see that the Liver is responsible for the smooth flow of emotions. A normally functioning Liver promotes emotional stability and takes responsibility for the flow of emotional energy. If the Liver cannot perform this duty, you will definitely see health issues arise. For example, frustration and irritability can lead to acid reflux, loss of flexibility, angry outbursts, PMS, breast tenderness, digestive issues, and even arthritis. 

Be aware, unresolved emotions don’t go away.  They hide until they are ready to manifest somewhere in your body. Support your Liver. Do the work now to resolve these emotional drains so that your Liver and your whole body reach a more comfortable state of balance. 

Try these tips today:

  1. Let it out! Stand in the shower and scream. As the warm water flows over you, imagine your anger releasing and draining away.
  2. Break it up! Throw a dozen eggs in your bathtub or (carefully) hammer an old, wooden board. As you throw the eggs or strike the wood, imagine your frustrations leaving your body through your hands.
  3. Take a time out! Carve out some time to be alone in your thoughts. What got you to this place where emotions seem to bubble and boil without warning? Reflect on the past year of your life, or travel back further, if needed. And then, one by one, begin to let go of what emotionally drains you.
  4. Express yourself! Find a healthy way to express your feelings, whether through singing, painting, dancing, or simply spending time with those you love.
