Guess what? Your emotions live in your body and they play a huge role in your health

Updated: Oct 22, 2023

Quantum Energy & Healing Podcast, July 2023 One of the fascinating things I have come to understand over the last 25+ years of exploring holistic health and wellness is that our emotions do not live in our minds AT ALL.

Our thoughts live in our minds, but our emotions live in our bodies, in our energy field as well as our actual physical body. Understanding this has a profound effect on how we approach healing not only our emotional pain but our physical ailments. As Eastern physicians and healers have known for millennia, a vast amount of the illness we experience has its roots in our emotional experience. This is why cultivating equanimity, inner peace and tranquility is such an important aspect of yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, Reiki and other holistic healing and personal development traditions.

Listen to Episode #51– Emotional Embodiment - When Emotions Take Up Residence in the Physical Body

I connected with Trina Krug, host of Quantum Energy & Healing Podcast in July for a freewheeling talk about how emotions reside in the body, how we can actually read what’s going on with people emotionally based on the nature and location of their ailments and pains, and how we can work with the energy in our bodies to improve our health and our outlook.

For the full conversation, listen to the podcast here. In short, we discussed the four layers of the human energy field: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, and how emotional energy gets trapped and stagnates within this system, leading to emotional problems and poor health. Moving and grounding your energy is ESSENTIAL to maintaining your mental, physical and emotional health.

E-MOTION, after all, is ENERGY in MOTION. Our emotions FLOW through us, but tension in the mind and body creates blocks to the unfettered flow, leading to imbalances in the overall system and, eventually, to disease. This is the philosophy that underpins acupuncture, which uses very fine needles to stimulate the flow of life force energy (or Chi) through a network of meridians, or subtle channels, in the body. Each meridian is associated with an organ, and that organ with an emotion. For example, excess fear resides in the kidney, anger in the liver, grief in the lungs.

As a master EFT practitioner (EFT = Emotional Freedom Techniques), I guide my clients to tap with their fingertips on acupuncture points along these meridians. This stimulates their stuck emotional energy to begin to flow, releasing the emotions they are feeling about whatever it is we are discussing. The results are extraordinary! Long-held grief, anger, resentment, fear, despair, and every other trapped emotion begins to release and in very short order my client is feeling lighter and freer than she has in years. We call it “clearing” in energy work, and that is exactly what it feels like to the client: her energy field is more clear! Over time, we can heal even deep-seated traumas from childhood and install new, more empowering thoughts and feelings in the mind and body.

There is so much more to the story, so listen to the episode to learn more!
