Go Ahead And Cry…
Crying is our soul’s way of cleansing itself of pain.
Crying has always had a very negative stigma attached to it. We were taught from a very young age, that it’s not o.k. to cry. It makes you weak. It makes you vulnerable. It shows you can’t handle pressure or you are unable to deal with life. It’s wrong to cry.
Quite contrary to the belief; crying is actually, therapeutic! Your body stores up negative energies in the forms of pain, hurt, disappointment and anger. These energies can fester for days, weeks, months or years.
You can function for a very long time while taking on these negative energies, little by little. Every day things occur in our lives that hurt us, disappoint us, or anger us. Day after day the pressure builds and builds in our bodies, until we literally “blow.”
It’s kind of like a pressure cooker, really! Water is placed in the pot and sealed closed. The pot is placed on the fire. The water boils and begins to create steam. At a certain point; that pressure is too much to bear so the whistle screams that it’s time to release.
Crying is exactly the same way. There comes a time when our bodies scream for a release. One thing pushes you over the edge and BAM… tears are flowing like a river!
Everything you have been holding inside is breaking free, through your tears. Energies are being released that no longer serve you. Crying allows you to “let go” of the pain, hurt, disappointment and anger in a healthy way.
I found myself crying this morning. I literally woke up, sad. Being an Empath and taking on other people’s pain, is not easy to live with. I struggle with my own issues at times and adding other people’s issues to the mix literally; breaks my heart. I cried. I cried hard. Tears flowed like they haven’t flowed in a long time.
Now… I feel better. Releasing all that negative energy made SUCH a difference! I wiped my tears away, I thanked the crying process for the release, I re-focused my thoughts on good things and then I thanked My Creator for all the blessings in my life.
Next time you feel the need to cry… Just do it.
