Not only does unexpressed pain lead to depression, anxiety and other forms of mental illness, it also leads to deep levels of emotional numbness.
It inhibits our ability to FEEL our lives, and holds us back from ever really trying to create a life we love.
It will destroy our motivation, crush our self confidence and deconstruct our dreams long before they ever happen.
Without the ability to enjoy the journey and receive the exhilaration of achievement when they reach their destination, those with unexpressed pain will find themselves running in circles and avoiding ever fully pursuing anything.
Rather than following their excitement and chasing their dreams, they'll often participate in activities that mirror their deep seated emotional numbness, such as abusing alcohol, drugs, social media, sex, gambling or television.
They will naturally choose short lived blasts of feel good hormones and neurotransmitters from the above activities rather than the continual release they would receive from doing what they love, because frankly, they can't feel it anyway.
However, as their unexpressed pain begins to heal, they will start to feel the beauty and love all around them, as if the sun has broke through the clouds on a rainy day.
As they begin to release their unexpressed pain they create room for emotions such as joy, presence, happiness, fulfillment and love. Their numbness is soon replaced by an increased sensitivity to the miracle of life, and before they know it, they're living a life they love.
This concept is becoming more well known in our first world society, but the ancient shamans and medicine people have known it since the beginning of time.
They understood that we don't have one body, but many bodies, all of which must be maintained and healed in order to reach true freedom and liberation.
The truth is available to each and everyone of us if we have the humility and courage to pursue it. There is no one dogma, one way or one methodology with all of the answers, and with an open mind and open heart we can all find the freedom we seek.
