When trauma, emotions and memories get trapped in the emotional body these blockages alter the flow of the energy that travels through our body. Just like with the flow of water through a river bed, imagine placing a huge stone in the middle of the river, the water will go around it and over time it will change the shape of the riverbed. At first it can be a slight dis-comfort but left to linger it can grow to dis-ease or disease. It can also manifest in repeated accidents where you injure and reinjure the same area of the body. This is the body’s way of getting your attention.
