Getting Rid of That Old Garbage
Now on to Chapter 5, “Releasing Suppressed Emotions”. This one is a biggy!! This is where the junk collects and takes up residence in our soul silently gong about afflicting strategic aspects of our bodies that cause us anguish, and in some cases, catastrophic illness such as cancer, heart disease, and the like. Here goes…
The first line if the chapter reads: “Surprisingly , only two of the nine most frequent factors of Radical Remission in this book are physical (diet change and herbs and supplements); the rest are emotional or spiritual in nature….This chapter is about the emotions we hold on to from our past and their connection to our physical health….It is noted that suppressed emotions, particularly stress and fear, are bad for our health.”
Kelly uses the example of a garbage truck going through town on a regular basis, but skipping a week. Imagine the issues that would cause if the garbage were allowed to remain for just one week! Imagine if the garbage were left for a month, then a year. Also, think of the truck and the residue that is left behind even after the truck is emptied. Unless it is cleaned completely out daily, most likely with a water hose, that residue builds up in the lining of the truck.
Now get closer to home and think of our own houses. We throw trash into a garbage can daily, and then either burn it (for those that live in the country) or bag it for the garbage collectors. Imagine now that you don’t bag it on a regular basis and it builds up in your house. These are crude examples, but exactly what happens in our bodies. A strong immune system does get rid of the “copycat” cancer cells disguise themselves as healthy cells, due to what we eat. Yet they do not rid our bodies of emotional buildup. That is our job.
It has been scientifically proven that resentment causes arthritis. Every emotion causes some type of illness in our bodies if left unchecked. That is why Jesus told the disciples to love their enemies; to pray for those that despitefully used and persecuted them; to do good to those that hate them; to forgive 70 x 7 in a single day; and to not let the sun go down upon our wrath. He knows the emotional tole it will take on us if we allow division of any kind, and for any reason, to rule. Humanity is ONE unit, one BODY, whether we want to accept that fact or not. We are all created in the image and likeness of God. Jesus came to show us the Father and how to live as that one body on earth. (See I Corinthians 12), so when one suffers we all suffer. Our suffering is not determined by what we believe regarding religion, faith, politics, business principles, etc. Suffering is suffering is suffering and God wants us ALL healed.
Regardless of which blockage is on, the overarching goal is to identify it, figure out where it came from, and release it fully. I had no idea I had such blockages. I truly try to walk in harmony with all people, however, when I prayed about this the Spirit revealed I did have a few old issues – and I mean old – that surfaced. When I discovered these blockages they were connected to both cancers I am dealing with. Once I dealt with them and released them, my soul felt clean again. I started to sense a major shift had taken place in my body.
No matter how small or insignificant an issue might be, deal with is on a daily basis. Matthew 5:23 “So if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and while there you remember that your brother has something [such as a grievance or legitimate complaint] against you, 5:24 leave your offering there at the altar and go. First make peace with your brother, and then come and present your offering.” Our Creator is more concerned with our relationship with His creation than He is what we believe.
I love this chapter. It brings such insight and healing. The testimonies of people that were healed by simply releasing old emotions are astounding! I wish I could write them all here for you.
I hope you have a truly blessed day You deserve it!!
