On a deep level your true Self knows what is good for you. It signals you with tiny messages you so often ignore. It's the little voice inside your head or the way you suddenly relax your shoulders when someone speaks the truth, or the tears behind your eyes when you are deeply touched by an act of kindness.
And yet you don’t want to pay attention to those signals. You hold on to the stuck places, even when you know it's not good for you! What happened when you were small and don't remember matters. Energy gets stuck in your cells, your body and your personal space.
You Freeze Energy to Protect Yourself
We need to face stress and learn to manage it in our lives in order to grow up and do our life’s work. But it isn’t easy and the resources you gather along the way may not be enough at any particular time. When you can’t use the stress you encounter to stimulate your own growth, that stress becomes toxic for you.
That’s when you split off parts of yourself and freeze your energy around them because they are too hard to manage. You do this when your experience of your world seems overwhelming. You aren’t alone. We all do it.
It does take courage to heed those signals. You froze your energy for a good reason—at least it seemed like a good reason at the time. You froze it to protect yourself from the pain of the stress you did not have the resources to manage and the pain that resulted from your helplessness. Now you may feel a deep sense of dread at the very idea of going into those deeply protected places where your monsters still hide.
