Quanta Fusion Review - The Harmful Effects Of Suppression
Written on the 21 October 2016 by Charles AllenSuppression in this context is a verb meaning 'to suppress' or 'to hold in from public disclosure'. The Oxford Dictionary defines suppression as 'preventing the development or expression of...'
Have you ever exploded on someone and not sure why? Or have you imploded within and not sure why?
When we resist a negative or harmful feeling or emotion we begin to build a shield. This shield or wall we put up is simply a harmful suppression of feelings.. This wall is very common in marital relationships, romantic relationships, work relationships, and friendships. It exists because you haven't addressed it. If not dealt with, it will destroy that relationship.
Through suppression we all build shields or walls to our feelings so they will not be allowed into our consciousness. We simply don't like those feelings. So instead of addressing them, we are human and humans by nature FLEE FROM PAIN. When we flee, we suppress.
When we suppress those feelings, they remain trapped within us, just waiting for that opportune moment, or should I say inopportune moment, to resurface. And guess what happens usually when those feelings surface? You got it, AN EXPLOSION!
Over time the habit of resisting our feelings will result in chronic repression. Repression is slightly different from suppression, in that repression is a constant automatic response of suppressing without you even thinking about it. It becomes so familiar to us that we suppress without even knowing it. The reason we suppress or repress is to AVOID PAIN. When we AVOID PAIN or dealing with our feelings and emotions, we avoid taking responsibility for our own feelings, thus blaming others for how we feel.
Responsibility is an interesting word here, it means the ability to respond. However, if we don't take responsibility for our own feelings we don't have the ability to respond in a resourceful manner. And when we don't take responsibility for our own feelings and behaviors we end up blaming others for how we feel. Actually our lack of responsibility has nothing to do with the other person you are engaged with whether at work, spouse, friend or whatever. We are the one avoiding the pain and not dealing with the issue causing the feeling. This is the ultimate form of repression.
When you continue to resist the feeling this completes the addictive cycle. We strengthen the suppression every time we resist. And when it resurfaces at the most opportune (or inopportune moment), it is stronger than ever.
You can't simply close the door on your pain and expect it to go away and you remain at peace. This is a high misconception which you have probably discovered at some point in your life when you lashed out at someone for no apparent reason.
You may attempt to avoid pain in all sorts of evasive maneuvers. Most of us do. These evasive maneuvers may include workalholism, over-eating, over watching TV, going to motivational seminars, over socializing, looking for the next exhilarating experience, over analyzing, excessive sleeping, smoking, excessive cleaning, unable to be alone and quiet, procrastination, over expression of anger, always blaming others for your circumstance, making lists, being critical of others, over spending, hoarding, alcoholism, drugs, and on and on...this is ADDICTION TO THE ACT OF AVOIDANCE...avoiding pain is now an addiction...
Most of the time what we are doing is rejecting ourselves because the pain is still trapped inside...its held in storage in a state of limbo waiting for the right time to resurface.
The subconscious mind is where all past experiences, positive or negative, are stored. If the negative experiences aren't dealt with they become like a fragmented computer hard-drive infected with a virus. If we don't deal with it, then we don't function properly which leads to self-destructive behavior. We usually don't even realize where the self-destructive behavior originated.
LET IT GO
So how does Jim suggest we deal with these issues? In his teachings within QUANTA, The Fusion Program, Jim shows how to resurface the negative feeling or pain, but instead of feeling it again, teaches you to just LET IT GO. When we LET GO, we can get to our destination in life a lot faster. Whether in a relationship, business, or finances, these teachings have helped over a million people to date.
