Over the last few years, I have come to understand that most people have some emotional baggage that they carry around without necessarily noticing how much it affects them in their day-to-day lives. I was one of these people, but a series of event and a particular life-changing experience showed me all the weight I had been carrying for years, and how much of an impact it had on my life.
Let me explain what I wrote as the title of this post. It’s a bit imaginative, but do your best to picture being able to actually see all the stored emotional baggage someone carries. All the joy, the sadness, the grief, the anger, the fear, the guilt, the shame, the motivation, etc. Suddenly, being able to see that, you have a complete different understanding of what that person has gone through. But at the same time, people would gradually come to know just how different it feels to be free of this weight once it is released, and people would also start to see that the happier the person the less of that baggage they carry. This is because they managed to release the repressed emotions, which brings upon a state of flow.
Once more and more people make the connection, there will be quite a huge movement to help those who have deeply seated traumas and other emotional baggage to release it. New techniques will be developed, new methods of release, and an increase in empathy will be felt throughout the world. And as this wave expands and accelerate, crimes will also see a significant decrease, as the repressed emotions were one of the main cause for the crimes to take place. People will be happier and have more motivation, creativity will be expanding rapidly and so new ideas will surface in all fields and ultimately lead to a world completely different than the one we can see today. A world where peace, happiness, laughter and joy are widespread amongst people.
I know I’m letting my imagination run wild here, but having known the freedom that this release of repressed emotions can give, I think that my little story is quite accurate. Now, of course this little thought experiment is pure fiction, and so we need to find ways to bring upon the positive feedback loop I described without the fictive cause of suddenly seeing the depth of people emotions everywhere. Fortunately, experiences such as the one I had do exist, and can definitely bring upon a radical change in someone’s life.
It is quite a special experience that is not for the faint of heart though. It is a ceremony which puts you face to face with your own truth. It does so by striping away layers and layers of garbage that’s been accumulated over the years, which eventually leads you to bear witness of these repressed emotions you find at the root of your own mind. Funnily enough, what lets you have this experience is an actual root, called Iboga, which comes from Africa and has been used for eons in ceremonies over there. It is not an easy experience. But when you are doing the experience in the proper ceremonial settings with people who know how to handle the medicine, it can be the most liberating thing you can ever experience. I have tried so many things in my life to find the reason I was depressed. I even had several ceremonies with Ayahuasca, San Pedro, and other psychedelics. But still I was unhappy.
It turns out what I needed was to witness the truth about my life, and Iboga showed it to me. It showed me the truth about why I was the way I was. It showed me the truth about some events that happened when I was a child, of which I was still carrying the weight around, while being unconscious of just how much it affected me. It showed me the truth about how I can completely overcome all of it and finally be happy. And boy was I happy when I did. For the first time of my life I had genuine tears of happiness flowing and flowing. It was just amazing. So much that I decided that with my life, I’d be of service to the medicine and the people and would actually become a provider myself.
I diverted a bit from the original premise here, but I really want more people to know about this because it can literally save lives. I could go a lot more in depth about what it does, because there is so much more going on than what I said here, but this will be for another time. I really thank you for reading this far, if you have any questions, thoughts, ideas, if you want to continue to develop the little story even more, all of it is more than welcomed.
On that note, may all of you have a wonderful day filled with amazing experiences!
