“In the quiet and stillness of a winter morning, I find peace in my mind and in my heart. My spirit is glowing with new and growing possibilities. I am in my element in light and in darkness; in winter and in spring.
Fresh ideas flow into my mind as I dream of days to come. In the depth of my dream, I see myself healthy, whole, and thriving. My heart is overcome with joy to fill my day. As I seek to be the greatest expression of love my heart can render.
Our expressions and communications tell others a lot about us. During a spiritual guidance or coaching session, I pay close attention to an individual’s expressions of their face, body movements, eye movements, and stature. If I am on the phone with someone, I listen carefully for the tone of their voice when it changes and discern in visions what their heart might be experiencing. Added to these things, I listen for the expressions of a person’s heart. Usually, I can tell pretty quickly where they are blocked.
Your expressions of emotion, love, fear, or conflict tell others where you are in your life path or how you feel about them. For instance, you can say, “I love you,” and it will be interpreted according to the tone of your voice when you say it. If it is passionate, the other person will know they are deeply in your heart. If your voice and tone are similar to general conversation, the other will know your connection is more on the level of a friend.
We create many different relationships in this life, and we speak to them in language that comes from our tongues and expressional nonverbal language. Have you ever been in front of someone and said nothing at all but completely understood how they feel about you? This is an example of expressional language or communication. Our words are important, but without the power we give them, they are merely dry words without our expressions.
I’m not sure why emotional expression got such a bad reputation. Maybe it’s because they make so many people uncomfortable when they are expressed. This is not a great condition to be in. Being able to express feelings and emotions openly is the only way to heal a heart that has been broken, to let someone know how we feel about them, and to express love genuinely.
Those who can not express their feelings openly are easy to spot. They are either filled with nervous anxiety because someone is causing them to withhold them or being pressed down by someone who does not personally want to deal with them. It does not mean they are not there. When someone cannot express their own emotions, they seem to become a very angry and negative person. When someone’s feelings are suppressed by another, they tend to become depressed and despondent.
We all need expression. We all have differing opinions. Being able to express our views openly is not only healthy but our right. Freedom of expression is what our country has been built upon. When this is not allowed, then our country becomes sick. Freedom of expression is what our lives are built upon, and when this is not allowed, we personally become sick.
I can’t even state this truth enough. It’s why we need friends, family, counselors, and ministers. It’s because we need to express who we are safely and healthily. Without this luxury, we all become sick.
When I receive calls from a client, it is often needed to simply voice their issues. Sometimes it is about heartbreak or something from the past that hurt them a great deal. Many want to know if someone they around care about them. My first response to that is, “Have you asked them?” Usually, they are afraid to ask because they have been hurt and rejected so much.
Rejection is one of the biggest roadblocks to communicating with others and offering our voices to heal the wounds that inflicted us. So many are afraid to step out again and honestly tell someone what is deeply felt. When our voices are held back either by fear or an overbearing person, we become stopped up inside like a drain that won’t flow. The blockage will create blockages also in our energy centers. Eventually, this will affect our physical health as well.
Our voices and emotions behind our expressions have been created in us for a reason. It is not only about talking with others but also about healing our hearts and soul scars. Without a voice, these inner wounds will fester and create blockages in our lives. Believe it or not, more people are held back in life simply because of the soul scars and wounds that energetically keep them closed off from what they truly want.
To get to the bottom line, it takes communication; it takes a voice! When we consider exercise, we either use it or lose it. It is the same thing with our expressions and communication. We need to use our voices or lose out on opportunities to make new choices and realize our dreams. When we neglect to voice our opinions, ideas, and hurts, we stop the life force flow from our lives.
Why are so many of us afraid to speak our minds? Most of the time, it is about not wanting that sore spot within hurt again. Sometimes it is about rejection, but another reason is the sense of judgment or failure. It all boils down to perceiving a loss of our self-esteem and self-worth. Sometimes we think we will be laughed at. Interestingly, many very successful people were humiliated and laughed at over and over again. At some point, they had to have thrown up their hands and chose not to care about it so much.
Sooner or later, we all need to face our fears. Opportunities will arise over and over to give us that chance to do just that! If you neglect your voice because of fears or false perceptions, maybe it is time to express yourself and move on. Healing only comes with opening a wound to air it out. It’s time, honey. Do it today!
