“Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.” Albert Einstein

Imagine swallowing all your anger, resentment or fear.  These feelings are forms of energy. And the thing about energy as Einstein so brilliantly wrote – “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.” What are emotions – they are pure energy. They have no shape, but man do they pack a charge. They govern the way we think, the way we act and ultimately who we are as a person.

You can feel a person’s energy especially when they’re angry – it’s literally written all over their face with red marker.

Now imagine as a young child you had emotions: anger, frustration or fear and no one listened to them. Or worse, made fun of them. When we are not heard as young children we learn to stop speaking. We swallow our emotions believing that they are not important and in the process we don’t learn how to communicate, how to express ourselves and our needs. We are conditioned to not trust that when we speak up our voice and our needs will be met.

What Happens to US Emotionally Also Happens to Us Physically

Not speaking our emotions effects our mental and our physical state. You cannot separate the two.I see this all the time in clinic. When I am working on a patient’s body if they are not speaking their truth or feel they are not being heard, I will feel energy stagnating in their throat.  It is a heavy dense feeling. And when I ask them about it, they will admit to not speaking their truth.

This week I was treating a young woman who comes in regularly for acupuncture. My treatment protocol is this:

  1. We chat about how things are going and what the patient is feeling in their body. Their life circumstances are important during the intake because the effects of these get manifested in their body.
  2. I then insert needles in areas of the body where they are feeling pain or discomfort – there are speficic points to relieve stress (4 gates) or fear Ren 17, PC6, HT5, Ht7
  3. Next, I perform healing touch – while the needles do a great job of moving energy, when you add healing touch to it – you can actually feel where they are storing excess energy. Using the hands with the needles creates a much stronger clearing and regulating effect.
  4. I then pull out my crystals and do more energy healing – now this is a new addition to my practice. I must confess – this is an area where I have very little experience or knowledge but the impact on patients has been profound! I can’t explain but it works.

With this particular patient, when I was clearing her energy my hands were immediately drawn to her throat – the energy was dense and heavy and a lot of it. As I worked at clearing it, I asked her about it. “Did she have trouble speaking her truth? Did she have trouble asking for help?” She answered yes to both questions.  She also said that she has had issues with her thyroid in the past. There is no co-incidence between hypothyroid and not speaking our truth. When we get sick it is our body’s way of signalling us that something is wrong, we are out of balance. Where the thoughts go, our energy follows. When our energy gets stuck or stagnates it causes illness and diseases.

Thyroid Cancer  In Chinese Medicine the evolution of cancer looks like this – first there is Qi and if your QI is flowing smoothly the body is in balance. Now imagine you’re angry – and you don’t speak up or you’re not honest – you literally swallow it down – now the Qi starts to stagnate and in time phlegm will stick to it forming a knot or a ball. Then blood will stick to it and before long you have heat and inflammation at this point the cells are now attacking each other trying to break down that which has formed and continues to form because the anger is feeding the knot or lump causing it to grow.

The greatest irony in not speaking our truth or standing up for ourselves is we perpetuate the feeling of victimization.   We are the cause of our own suffering and disease.
