Before we can begin to help and treat emotions and the pain that stems from them, we must first define
and understand what emotions are and how they function with regards to pain. We must also ask what
are healthy emotions, what are unhealthy emotions, and how does a person discern between the two?
Emotions are feelings, or perceptions.
They have to do with what we think and believe, and become a part of us based on our past interaction with
our surroundings. This is why it is necessary to know what kind of environment a person had as a child, when
they are later being counseled as an adult. Emotions become a kind of "feeling filter" that all current life
experiences and expressions must pass through. What we take in, or what we put out, must first pass through
how we feel about things, and how we feel about things is most often based on our perceptions formed in our
earlier years of life. Unfortunately, our ability to cope with many of our current life circumstances is based
on incorrect "feeling filters" that have never had the opportunity to mature because of pain in the past, or
because of some sort of trauma we experienced as a child. Therefore, we find that we come up "short" when
trying to deal with with many relationships and situations that we are now faced with as an adult.
What all this may lead to is incorrect, unhealthy perceptions, or disturbed emotions, where our "feeling filter"
is only allowing our perceptions to resonate with erroneous and immature, preconceived notions or ideas. And
because emotions are not an island unto themselves, when they are disturbed, or unhealthy, they become harmful
to the condition of our physical bodies, our spirits, and our minds as well. The interrelationship between our
feelings and their effect on our bodies can be easily understood when we consider the process that occurs when
a person is embarrassed by something someone says. Almost instantly large amounts of blood rush to the brain and
the person becomes "red in the face", and all because of a spoken word passing through that person's filter of
emotions.Emotions, therefore, must be taken into account when considering the cause of pain on any level of our being because
our emotions are inter-connected to our moral, spiritual and physical health. Fear, sorrow, envy, resentment, hatred,
guilt, and other emotional stresses account for the majority of all physical and mental illness. Add to this the terrible
toll taken by alcohol, tobacco, immorality, poor diet, etc., and one can quickly understand the importance of considering
the emotional source of all these various addictions and their resultant pain.
