Toxic Emotions E/M11

Toxic emotions refer to the situation where the habitual presence of a particular emotion has prompted a person to turn that emotion back on itself.

For example, the client may have fear of fear or be angry that they are angry. Having lost joy, particularly over a broken relationship a person may feel hatred. If this hatred is turned back on itself, ie. if they hate feeling hatred, then they are likely to become bitter and not open up anymore to others. This secrecy will often make them appear aloof and intimidating.

Toxic emotions often lead to physical illness.

Toxic emotions should be checked and cleared particularly if someone has a diagnosed pathology in an organ or cancer.

The concept of toxic emotions is discussed by Lonny Jarrett in his book Nourishing Destiny.
