When we’re hurt emotionally or mentally, our body usually suffers as a result.
When I was a child, I was sexually assaulted by a man I didn’t know. I carried that pain for years, and it felt like a tumor growing inside of me.
After I shared my story and found healing, I felt my heart fly wide open. I was suddenly free of this terrible event, and I was no longer a victim.
Our bodies often carry a lot of baggage from our past. Maybe its mental abuse, physical abuse, neglect, or something else. When something traumatic happens, our body chemistry changes. Our inner environment directly influences our outer reality. Stress and unhealed pain can cause physical damage, resulting in a weaker immune system.
But our bodies and our hearts can be healed. Through therapy, mediation, and a willingness to face our fears, we can let go of the past and create a better environment for our bodies and our minds. We can trade fear, frustration, and suffering for an elevated emotion and open our hearts to healing.
For this 5-Minute Friday episode, I wanted to share a clip with you from a previous interview with Dr. Joe Dispenza, who has helped countless people recover from trauma and heal their hearts.

I’ve had Dr. Joe on The School of Greatness a few times now, and he’s always been a hit. If you haven’t already, check out our past interviews (Episode 933, Episode 826, and Episode 679) — they are all really applicable to what we are going through right now with COVID-19.
If you’re carrying around your past as a burden, I want to encourage you — there is healing. There is hope. Your past does not define you or your body’s health. You can reach a higher level of consciousness and embrace the healing your heart deserves.
