Emotional pain and trauma can cause real physical pain and disEASE in the body. We are not just physical beings and our emotions affect us and those around us in very profound ways. Our emotions and experiences are essentially energy and they can be stored in the cellular memory of our bodies. We tend to stuff uncomfortable feelings, deny them, bury them, avoid them, or attempt to medicate them away. Most of us spend a huge amount of our life (and time and energy) avoiding, suppressing or inappropriately expressing them. This can be exhausting, frustrating, and damaging to our lives and cause very REAL physical circumstances.
