Complain or Suffer in Silence

Do you ever wonder what makes it so easy for some people to send back food that isn't properly prepared at a restaurant, while to others the very thought of sending it back causes intense anxiety, so they suffer in silence?

It probably has something to do with a past event or events you have completely forgotten about. When we feel overwhelmed by something we can't manaage, we often solve the problem by quickly putting it out of our awareness — forgetting that it even existed. this effectively freeezes energy around that problem.

So if you were ignored or punished or shamed when you complained about something long ago, your brain registered that as something to avoid forever. When you might like something to change now, you feel anxious without knowing it's about a forgotten incident or pattern from your history.

Resentment = Frozen Energy

Ouch! I heard myself thinking “I still resent that…” and realized how much energy I had frozen into something I had tried to change and simply couldn’t.

Many of my clients hold resentments about things they have not even tried to change. In any case, resentment is a way of saying I want to stay angry  about this – whatever this may be. Resenting something often involves the hidden fantasy that if I stay angry it will hurt the person or thing that did not do what I expected or wanted. The Logosynthesis® sentences can be very effective in retrieving the energy that is frozen into any kind of resentment. Just listen for the word “resent” and use it as a signal that your energy is waiting there for you to retrieve it.

Stuck Phone — Frozen Energy

My iPhone froze on day 2 of a 10-day vacation. I spent hours following every online protocol I could find to get it going again – to no avail. Finally my husband took over talking to the tech-support on his phone and as I sat waiting for the verdict and upset about the wasted vacation time, I heard a voice in my mind saying "you're a bad girl." At the same time I experienced a wash of shame! Wow! Where did that come from??? I first thought defensively – "I didn't do anything wrong!" Then I realized that I had just stumbled on a piece of stuck energy. It did not really matter where it came from. I used the target "this experience of believing I am a bad girl with the Logosynthesis sentences and felt better immediately. 

The phone has a hardware problem and I will get it repaired or replaced when I get home.
