Origin of Dormant Unhealed Energy
As a child grows into adulthood, it often becomes apparent to him or her that they exhibit behaviors that are not considered acceptable by adults. These behaviors can include angry shouting and screaming, crying, pouting, fearful shaking and so forth. Insecurity, anger, jealousy, impatience, selfishness, fear, sadness or other similar feelings are often a cause of these behaviors. If parents do not show the child how to handle these feelings in a healthy way and instead, as is often the case, tell the child, “Stop that!” or “Don’t act that way!” over time, the child learns to push these feelings inside and hold them in place, and they are unexpressed.
Also, many times when children suppress their feelings, they are rewarded by the parents telling them, “Good girl!” or “Good boy!” or they hear their parents tell other adults to look at what a good boy or good girl he or she is or other similar words. These actions reinforce the child’s behavior of hiding feelings and encourage the child to deny that they have such feelings at all. Eventually, as this process develops, these “unwanted” feelings begin to be held inside automatically by conditioning that takes place in the subconscious mind and because of this, they are never expressed.
This pattern of behavior can develop to the point where the person does not know they have these feelings. Because these feelings are unknown, the person no longer gives them energy and instead, directs their awareness toward what society considers to be positive qualities and develops the expression of those feelings instead. When unhealthy feelings do not receive energy or attention, over time, they become dormant.
In addition, the unhealed dormant parts reduce a person’s ability to experience feelings and emotions and reduce the ability to respond in an effective way to the challenges of life. A person becomes less flexible and is not as creative in their ability to solve problems, in being productive, or in finding enjoyment in life. In other words, the unhealed dormant parts limit the persons ability to enjoy the full range of healthy, positive feelings that they would otherwise experience.
Because a person isn’t aware of the unhealed dormant parts, they are not motivated to heal them. In addition, these parts are unusually difficult to heal and up to this point, regular Reiki energy or other healing methods have difficulty discovering them, therefore, they are rarely healed.
These unhealed dormant parts build up in layers that cover up the Authentic Self and often create a thick hard shell that prevents the Authentic Self from being known to the person or expressing its amazing potential. Experiences from this lifetime as well as past lives, ancestral history and cellular memory, to name a few, can cause the buildup of unhealed dormant layers that block our Authentic Self from being seen and therefore stop it from contributing to the quality of our lives. The unhealed dormant parts present a great challenge to our healing process. However, there is a solution.
