“Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.” – Joel Osteen
Since early childhood, I’ve experienced difficulty processing and eliminating my negative emotions.
I have always been very sensitive to the feelings in my body, but I didn’t know what the feelings meant, and even worse, I did not understand how to get beyond my negative emotions.
Ignoring my feelings
First, I would just ignore them, hoping that they would go away. Soon I realized that this was not going to work for me. The more that I ignored my body’s signals, the louder they got inside of me.
Next I did what most other people would do. I started ” acting them out”. This often would lead to disciplinary actions by ” authority figures in my life” as a child. And later in life, problems with relationships. I didn’t like the outcome of ” acting out” either so I had to some research on processing my negative emotions.
What are Emotions
Emotions are electrochemical reactions that can be triggered from the Auric field of the human body. Emotions can also be triggered through the five senses of the body, sight, sound, smell, touch and taste.
I know that you have heard that no one outside of yourself can make you feel a certain way but that is bunk. Go to a crowded place once and feel if you are being emotionally overloaded; I would guess that your answer is yes.
Why do you think alcohol is so popular at crowded social functions? Because it dulls your senses.
There are emotion lists all over the internet and basically they slide up and down a scale from fear to love. Either end being an emotional extreme and most of us if we are balanced will fall within the middle somewhere.
“All emotion comes from belief, if you do not have a belief in something, then you would not have an emotional reaction to it at all.” – Bashar
If you realized that what someone said or did had absolutely nothing to do with you at all, then you would have an observation of what they are doing, because there is nothing to react to.
Mental states of being lead to emotional states of being and not the other way around. Since the body is connected to the mind – I found that by keeping my body healthy via healthy choices and rest keeps my negative emotions at bay.
All negative emotions are a cry to you to get your needs met based on your beliefs. You believe you need something and it is up to you to figure that out or I can help you via my coaching services.
T. Harv Eker Talks About Emotions
On page 116 In his book: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker describes what leads to negative emotional states in regards to being able to give and receive.
“Think about it.
How could you give if their weren’t someone or something there to receive? Both have to be in perfect balance to work one-to-one, fifty-fifty. And since giving and receiving must always equal each other, they must also be equal in importance.
Besides, how does it feel to give?
Most of us would agree that giving feels wonderful and fulfilling. Conversely, how does it feel when you want to give and the other person isn’t willing to receive?
Most of us would agree that it feels terrible.
So know this: if you are not willing to receive, then you are “ripping off” those who want to give to you.
You are actually denying them the joy and pleasure that comes from giving; instead, they feel lousy.
Again, everything is energy, and when you want to give but can’t, that energy cannot be expressed and gets stuck in you. That “stuck” energy then turns into negative emotions.”
How to handle your negative emotions like stress
I had to do something about these heavy, burdensome feelings in my body and I needed resolve A.S.A.P.
I read a great deal on the subject of feelings/thoughts/ emotions – the whole triad and learned a lot. I began taking bits and pieces of information from various sources, and used my own intuition as well. With that, I was able to devise an effective, yet simple strategy for processing my emotions without resorting to ” acting them out”.
Emotional Process that Worked for me
I’m not going to beat around the bush here, processing emotions safely is not easy at first but it is simple to do. It may even take a little courage on your part to do this. You will be confronting you own personal energy and unresolved issues that still linger inside of you.
Emotion literally means, energy in motion, but negative emotions are energy that has become stuck within our chakras and we are unable to process them.
Our intuition or sixth sense – ( which we all have access to by the way)- is what we use to sense emotion in ourselves and others.
It is best to process your emotions in the comfort of your own home. After you get comfortable with the process, you can do it almost anywhere at anytime.
- Get comfortable in a chair or sit on the floor.
- Take a couple of breaths ( slow and easy).
- Do some light stretching as well.
- Focus on the center of the chest, where the heart is.
- Look inside of there, what do you see?
- Anger, judgment, regret, sadness.
- Say the word AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
- The vibrations of this word will help loosen the emotion
- Ask Source energy to send you a vacuum cleaner (do this using thought and imagination).
- Begin using the vacuum to remove out all the dark matter that has accumulated in your heart chakra.
“Thank” Source/God/Your Higher -Self – for helping you to remove this, express sincere gratitude. You may need to do this several times for the most benefit. In the beginning, do this once a day, gradually you will be able to do this several times a day if necessary.
You will begin to notice that your heart is feeling a little lighter. You may even react as if something is missing. This is normal and you will get comfortable without all the extra emotional baggage.You can use this process with all the Chakras for healing purposes.
What are Chakras
Chakras are spinning wheels of light energy. Psychics and clairvoyants can tune into these wheels of light, and detect imbalances in them. Some chakras are moving slowly, as if hesitating. Others are wobbly, as if they cannot get back into balance.
The key is to get your chakras to spin evenly and smoothly for a more balanced life experience.
There are seven major chakra centers connected to the body. The chakras begin at the base of the spine and continue up to the top of the head.
- Root chakra Base of spine at the tailbone.
- Sacrum/Sacral chakra Two inches below the navel.
- Solar Plexus chakra Stomach or Gut area.
- Heart chakra Behind the breastbone.
- Throat chakra In the V of the collarbone.
- Third Eye chakra Above the eyes, center of forehead.
- Crown chakra Top or Crown of head.

If you still feel negative emotions and are having trouble tolerating them – try my post about Removing Limiting Beliefs about yourself. And always, be sure to remember to be loving, kind, and gentle with yourself while processing and eliminating negative emotions.
Another technique that works for me for dealing with negative emotions is to spend some time alone in nature. Most of us spend time with other people, and unbeknownst to us, the emotions of others can and will get entangled in our own energy system.
Taking a bath or shower, walking barefoot on the beach or on grass, and smudging the auric field with sage can all help with dealing with your negative emotions and help to get you back to center and feeling good once again.
Something else that works for me is using the Brain Evolution System.
Last but not least you may just want to be at peace with your negative feelings and emotions. Sometimes all they want is to be recognized, felt, understood and processed. Be at one with them, feel them out and then release them.
