If you don’t address the emotional aspect of chronic pain, your patient might never fully recover. Pain, particularly chronic pain, is considered as an emotionally driven disorder in MPS Therapy. Thought, mood and behavior are affected by this complex experience and are turned into isolation by scared and suffering patients.
Past negative experiences, personal beliefs and unresolved emotions create emotional blockages. These emotional blockages perform as a defense mechanism in deep emotional pain produced during traumatic or dysfunctional situations.
The energy is blocked by strong emotions like anger and guilt. The emotional body has a magnetic nature and emotions are suppressed until they become bottled up inside the person experiencing them. These emotions result in physical manifestations like chronic pain, anxiety and depression.
Undesirable emotions from past experiences are activated by ‘triggers’. A person, song, situation or smell can work as a trigger. All areas of life, relationships, health and career are affected by emotional blocks.
A disability due to headache, backache or arthritis is intensified due to depression. When someone suffers from depression and chronic pain, this can lead them to develop a dependency on painkillers, causing them to use these pills for even minor problems. The main complaint of the depressed patients is pain all over the body. In some studies, it is showed that 60% of the patients having complaints of pain actually suffer from undetected depression.
DNA is stored in every cell of the body and transferred from generation to generation. Mental and emotional levels are also stored by the cells. Every experience is not remembered by the conscious mind and the cells encode the memory of every experience called cellular memory.
This phenomenon of cellular memory is an additional hypothesis that memories can be stored outside the brain. However, unlike body memory, the cellular memory hypothesis states that these memories are stored in all the cells of the human body, not in the body’s organs.
Emotional imprints are left on the cellular memory by the traumatic incidents from past lives. The shock/pain of the incident is imprinted in the cellular memory even after the incident is forgotten by the conscious mind.
In short, when emotions like fear, anger and anxiety are blocked, these are expressed in the form of chronic pain.
