What Are You Repressing?

Angie Monko - Saturday, June 23, 2012
My daughter, Chelsea (17 years old), is in a relationship with a nice boy her age, Jack
(I've changed his name to protect his privacy).  It's bringing up all sorts of opportunities
for her to learn and grown, and, gratefully, she sees it this way. On Monday of this week,
Chelsea approached me and said she had been feeling bad about her body all day and
didn't know why.  Later in the evening, we decided to do some tapping together, using a
CD from the Tapping World Summit on Stress Relief.

I love it because it really relaxes you and helps you to see that how we handle stress is
just another limiting belief system.  The idea that we must get everything off of our plate
before we can relax and be at peace is false. Anyhow, after we finished tapping, Chelsea
blurted out, "I feel really bad about a text I sent to Zach (a boy she'd liked but never dated)."
She told me she'd said some really mean things to him, influenced by Jack who doesn't
like Zach.  I told her she needed to apologize to him, and she agreed. 

The cost of this decision is that it would upset Jack, who is insecure about Zach. She
decided to let Jack know because he wants to have an honest relationship.  He did
get very upset but she stuck to her guns and explained that she wasn't true to herself
when she allowed him to convince her to send that text. Isn't it funny how, after sending
that cruel text at 5am on Monday, and then forgetting about it, it showed up for Chelsea
as having body image issues that day?  She had betrayed herself by being mean to
someone, and whether he deserved it or not is irrelevant. 

We cannot be harmful to someone else without it hurting ourselves even more. I also love
how tapping on stress relief and loving ourselves (not even apparently related to the
Zach incident) brought up to Chelsea's consciousness her need to make things right and
get back in energetic alignment with herself. We all have a natural tendency to repress
things so we don't have to deal with them.  Even better, we are constantly distracted by
life's details so we don't have to look honestly at what's troubling us.  If this is you,
interrupt that pattern and take 5 minutes today to sit quietly with your thoughts, and see
what bubbles up.
