“Voice of Higher Presence: In the past, you have constantly walked away from the opportunities to go into your painful emotions. You have denied listening to your innermost feelings because you were afraid of what they would show you. What I am saying is that this practice has not served you well. It has only served to make the emotion of your inner pain more intense. Please remember that nothing can be healed if it does not come into the light. And by denying your emotions, you are blocking off any chance you had of developing as a person.
Will Murtha: I can see now where I have gone wrong. But, one thing, didn’t my behavior at least allow me some time to reassess my situation? Didn’t containing my destructive emotions at least allow me to bide my time?
Voice of Higher Presence: This would only be a correct statement if trapped emotions were not destructive to the body. If all denied emotion was harmless, then you would not have a problem. But, of course, this is far from the case. You may naively imagine that you are controlling your denied emotions with chemicals, but that is not true. What is actually happening under the surface is that your negative, unexpressed emotions are eating into your energy system. They are infecting your whole system with a toxic poison that is substantially more destructive to you and your body than any chemical substance. Just because emotions cannot be seen does not mean that they are not at work. They are, in more ways than you realize. They are slowly altering your DNA, which ultimately leads to breakdowns in your immune system.”
William L. Murtha, in “Dying for a Change”
