To fully understand the harmful effect of woundology we first need to understand the nature of energy and how it is responsible for nourishing our body and our world. Each one of us is plugged in to hundreds of energy circuits that penetrate us and enter us through our acupuncture meridians and chakras, energy that different cultures have named in different ways. Indians refer to this energy as “prana”, the Chinese refer to it as “chi”and Christians refer to it as “grace” or “the holy spirit”. You can think of this energy flowing into us from the universe, from God, from the Tao but as it flows into us it gives us the fuel we need to feed our physical bodies, our minds, and our emotions. Every action we make, every thought we have requires some of this energy. Our quest is to maximize the energy available to us to heal ourselves each day. Woundology is an obstacle, a negative pattern that will rob our bodies of this universal energy source. You can watch my video on the 5 Levels of Healing to learn where other obstacles can exist in our healing. We are not meant to stay wounded. Emotional pain is to be healed. There are many safe, effective spaces in which to explore this healing. Sometimes it is therapeutic for it to be talked about with family and friends, sometimes it is not. The next time you are sharing a traumatic event with someone take a moment and bring attention to how you are feeling bring attention to the motivation behind sharing that experience. Feel in yourself whether you are giving that experience unnecessary power are you blocking energy from flowing into and through you by inappropriately using your tragedy and emotional pain to get what you want or manipulate the situation in some way. This awareness will be the first step in letting go of this harmful reaction.
