Are you 'Releasing or Recycling?'
How do you deal with your emotions?
Are you 'releasing or recycling?'
So i just learnt about this concept. When we are dealing with any of our challenges we are either actively releasing our emotions or recycling them.
Releasing is when we have dealt with our emotions - actively - and time span is different for us all as we are all different - and then we get to a stage where we release our emotions and we begin to heal. This is when you start to feel ease, peace and calm within and you are actively getting on with your life - no more random tear sessions when hearing that song or seeing that picture.
Recycling is the stage where we keep repeating and repeating. We go through the whole 'Why' syndrome and is something i have also done and sometimes i have deliberately allowed myself to stay down this road longer than i should have and i have 'suffered' the consequences and yes suffering is optional - we have within us the ability to switch into the now and be OK only if we give ourselves permission.
Many people stay stuck in the recycling stage and so did i - especially in my teens and twenties.
I guess it's because it is comforting - as in we get used to our comfort zone and don't want to stretch ourselves but deep inside we know that if we do stretch ourselves we will learn and grow.
Releasing one's emotions doesn't happen overnight - especially when it involves the loss of a loved one. We naturally go through phases to understand it all and be OK.
Another thing is that many times we - yes females and males - were brought up to just 'deal with it and get over it' yet that same person would be eating their own words (we've all experienced that).
Healing begins as soon as we accept that God has something awesome planned for us and that He does not burden our souls more than we can handle and that He already knows we can handle it and He is looking at our response - whether we'll be grateful or ungrateful and how we will react. Healing begins when we understand our emotions and what triggers us and we realise that we have the power to change our state by changing our thoughts as we create our thoughts and we can direct them where we want. Healing begins when we let go and let God.
I hope this helps! :)

I read your post and some of the other categories. I recycle emotions. It is only because all my life I have suffered abuse, neglect, suffering. I don't have good memories, so I all I do is dwell on what I know, the past. I once believed in God, a Christian God but now my eyes have been opened to see that he was the one who caused all my pain and suffering all these years. He was the one who ignored my prayers for peace and love. Is it possible to release if there is nothing good to hold on to?

Danette - thank you so much for your comment and opening up your soul. I feel you want to heal now and live your dreams - live the life that you want to and not the life you have been living up until now. Know that to move forward now the first step is to acknowledge your journey and say to it that it does not serve you no more and you are ready to release. There is always something to hold on to and deep within you - you have that also - life has gotten in the way and has blurred your dreams but together we'll help you relive your dreams now. Know that it requires one small step each day - just one small step and gradually you'll be able to let go easily and effortlessly. Know that by holding on to your pain and suffering of the past you are hurting your soul even more and that is not want you want - you want to be happy, just like everyone else. And it may be scary because honestly staying in our comfort zone feels so 'safe' - yet it's not safe if we are not living and eating healthy. It affects all areas of our life and you may have experienced that too. For now find that one thing which is precious to you - one dream - one hope - even though it seems impossible to reach at the moment - just allow yourself and give yourself permission to let go and dreams. At first it will feel scary and it will stop you and hold you back - you know those lil voices in our head - those gremlins don't own you. You are not your pain and suffering and by revisiting the past over and over you are allowing them to own you. You're better than that. I believe you are ready to live your life the best you want to achieving all your dreams. Know you have a sister here who will make a prayer for you and i believe in you. Just one step today Danette and it will cause a ripple effect to get you going on the path of living your healthy life now. Will you be courageous enough to take that step today. You owe it to your soul to be happy, you know that! I hope this helps :)
