In my previous article I introduced you to the map of cellular memory that predicts where we store our emotions. I thought it would be helpful if I walked you through that map, one emotion at a time, so that you could get a better sense of how your energy blocks create limiting beliefs within you that result in unwanted circumstances outside of you.
Let’s start at the top, with Guilt. Guilt is feeling bad for something that you’ve done. When it becomes embedded in your energy field for a long time, it becomes part of who you are, taking on a tone that’s more like you are bad because of something that you’ve done. We call that feeling unworthy. I’ve helped a lot of clients break through issues that boiled down to not feeling worthy of what they wanted.
According to the cellular memory map, we store Guilt at the very top of our heads – right around our crown chakras. Therefore, if we’re holding onto Guilt, we’re blocking our crown chakras.
Furthermore, we have different layers to our energy fields; from the innermost to outermost they are physical, emotional, mental, spiritual (karmic), soul cluster, and Divine Will. From what I’ve observed in my healing work, how an emotion impacts us depends on what layer of our energy field we’re holding it in.
Here are the correlations between cellular memory blocks and limiting beliefs that I’ve observed. All of these are versions of “I’m not good enough,” but as you can see, they have slightly different flavors:
Physical layer block => “I don’t deserve to exist.”
Emotional layer block => “I’m not worthy of love” or “My needs don’t matter.”
Mental layer block => “I don’t deserve to have what I desire.”
Spiritual (karmic) layer block =>”I have to atone for past mistakes in order to be worthy.”
Soul Cluster layer block => “I have no purpose.”
Divine Will layer block => “I am completely separate from God,” which often boils down to “I am nothing.”
Note: A person can be blocked on multiple layers and therefore be experiencing more than one of these limiting beliefs.
What does it mean to have these limiting beliefs within you? These are recurring patterns in your self-talk. They are subconscious, so you might not ever be aware of you have them, but they color your thoughts and responses.
Let’s say, for example, that you’re out shopping and see a great-looking pair of shoes. You try them on and they feel great. You feel powerful in them, and you can imagine yourself wearing them to the office and really taking charge of your work because you feel so great.
But then your limiting beliefs kick in. You start to have thoughts like, “I don’t really need these right now”; “There are more important things to spend money on.” Maybe your subconscious mind gets sneaky with a perfectly reasonable-sounding idea like, “I’ll wait until their on sale,” distracting you from how great you felt in those shoes and the suggestion that feeling that good is worth any price tag.
The voice in your head telling you not to get the shoes might be someone else’s – a spouse or a parent, perhaps. In fact, if you’re holding Guilt then many of your choices are governed by what those people think you should or should not be doing. Guilt and unworthiness leave little room in your life for what you think is right for you to do.
Meanwhile, you outwardly attract people who try to make you feel guilty for what you think, say, and do. They probably succeed too, because they’re triggering the Guilt you already hold within you.
Read through the list of limiting beliefs again. Do any of them trigger a response within you? Perhaps it’s a subtle tingle of awareness, or maybe reading those words feels like a sucker punch to the gut.
It’s possible to survive with these blocks to your crown chakra, but it’s really hard to thrive. If you have long-held Guilt within you, you have almost certainly created coping mechanisms to work with them, but they are likely to be unhealthy. If you are a shopaholic, a compulsive over-eater, a thrill-seeker, or addicted to alcohol or drugs, it’s my professional opinion that these behaviors are extreme cases of coping mechanisms that were created to replace the stream of Life and Well-being that the addict is denying herself.
Most of the coping mechanisms I’ve seen though are milder than that. The most common: The client has surrendered herself to never getting what she wants, and rationalized that it’s OK as long as the people around her are happy. And then every once in a while she rebels and does something extreme (for her) to assert her needs, like a girl’s weekend or a shopping spree.
Even the best coping mechanisms are exhausting, because they only cover, not cure, the underlying feelings of unworthiness. Those feelings won’t go away until the Guilt energy is cleared. Over time Life will bring you opportunities to release that energy through experience, but they will be arduous experiences (especially for crown chakra issues, from what I’ve seen) and it might take several experiences before you finally power through and claim your self-worth.
Or, you could work directly with the energy. I always want to support your ability to self-heal – everyone can channel healing energy, even before being trained – but because of their nature I have found that energy issues around the crown chakra usually require outside support. If you try to DYI this one, you’ll find that you make great plans for self-care but constantly hit obstacles or detours that keep you from following through. When you notice that has happened, call me.
