what's your go-to?
Imagine that our trapped emotions are rocks and our bodies are pails. As we trap these emotions our pail fills up with . Emotions from inherited from our ancestors, absorbed emotions from a friend, events from childhood, trauma experienced through a loss or divorce, an argument with a loved one, a tough day with the kids or at work- they all get put into one pail! We only get one pail (read: body). If you have a bad week or you’re overwhelmed with say, the pandemic, your “go-to” takes over. This “go-to” could be depression, anxiety, a specific fear or phobia, pain in your neck or back, self-sabotage- you name it! So you know when we say things like Ike, “I feel so______ this week for some reason?" The reason is, your pail has been tipped. Once these trapped emotions are overflowing, you start to feel it. When we reduce the level of emotions in the pail, we reduce our overall baggage and feel better. That’s how the Emotion Code works!
