Clearing Past Emotional Baggage using Hypnotherapy  


Clearing Past Emotional Baggage using Hypnotherapy

We all have "stuff" from our past, commonly known as emotional baggage. The most common and toxic forms of emotional baggage are anger, fear, hurt and sadness, and guilt.

The metaphor used is that these negative emotions are stored in our unconscious minds, and in our body as little black bags that block the flow of energy and information through our neural network pathways. It is common for people who are getting deep tissue massage to experience a partial memory that surfaces as an emotion, for example the masseur/masseuse hits a little black bag, and up comes the sadness from the event stored in that little black bag. 

Deepak Chopra says that a negative emotion has two elements, a thought and a physical sensation in the body. That's why we say negative emotions hurt us, there is a physical element that is frequently ignored, and when the memory comes up, the hurt manifests in the body also. If we see something on TV, we could have the same imagery, but it does not hurt to the same extent because we don't have the physical feeling in the body that hurts, unless the image reminds us of one of our own past experiences with the emotion in it.

Our subconscious minds want to resolve this baggage from the past, and let go of the emotions, and keep the positive learnings, otherwise known as experience. In a nutshell, that's what the emotional clearing process aims to achieve. It's a sort of spring clean of the emotional baggage, clearing out the negative stuff from the past that's trapped in your body and in your subconscious mind. 

Once all this rubbish is cleared out, it leaves you free to make new choices that are not based on the stuff from the past coming up. Stuff from the past comes up when things trigger old memories. The triggers could be anything, a tone of voice, the look on someones face, a word, an object, anything in fact that your subconscious associates with that old memory, and the chain of similar memories. It is learned automatic behaviour, like tying your shoelace automatically or touch typing. With practice you get good at everything automatic, and we can become "expert" at bringing up anger, sadness, hurt, fear, guilt and other negative emotions, for example someone could have a memory of being humiliated at school by a teacher, and any sort of event that has any similarity brings up the shame and the fear. Another example is someone who was brought up in an environment where there was a lot of shouting and anger, and if someone else expresses irritation, up comes the anger from your body in response,.

These negative emotions are very rarely to our benefit, and if they come up a lot, they can be harmful to the body over time, so it's much safer and healthier to clear them from the past, and to learn new and more appropriate responses.
