Negative Emotions and Infertility

Are Negative Emotions Preventing You From Getting Pregnant?


Negative emotions and infertility don't go well together. Distressing thoughts and feeling can disrupt your ability to conceive. They do have a direct impact on ovulation and hormonal balance.

While trying to conceive it’s inevitable for negative emotions to surface and make you feel sad and depress when you period comes late and you aren’t pregnant. You have high expectations every month and feel really discouraged when the pregnancy test turns out to be negative.

Even if this can be stressful to you, it is somewhat normal. What’s very important is to understand that the body has the ability to deal with negative thoughts and emotions in a healthy way.

This may involve, crying, letting go of anger by hitting a pillow, taking time off from work for a few days and rest. Some women use a journal and write down all their emotions, thoughts and feeling both negative and positive and express themselves in this way. 

Negative Emotions and Infertility Issues

When you have been diagnosed with a specific infertility issue like endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids, blocked Fallopian tube or poor egg quality, your state of mind is taxed by additional sadness, sorrow and even heartache.

You will feel the overwhelming feeling of not knowing what to do. 

If you are feeling the negative emotions of getting pregnant, I encourage you to find a healthy way to deal with your feelings. This is very important and it can actually help you in your path to motherhood.

You don't have to keep everything inside and you need to find a way to let go of what is weighting on your spirit.

The Ups And Downs Of Getting Pregnant

It took me seven years to conceive my first child and going through that time it was really hard. I now realize that I needed that time to rid myself of all the negativity I was holding inside of me as my child did not need to be inside of a body that is filled with negative energy.

I was sad as a child and as a teenager I was not happy to be myself. I grew up into a vulnerable woman. My desire to get pregnant led me to a path of transformation and made my relationship with my husband stronger. We both needed time to prepare ourselves to what was yet to come. The emotional ups and downs of parenthood are even stronger than those you experience when you are trying to conceive. 

It's Taking So Long...

When getting pregnant takes a long time, you may become depressed and feeling of unworthiness may surface making you feel even worse.

Deep seated negative emotion of helplessness, resentment, jealousy and even anger may come up. This may sound like a bad thing, but it’s indeed the best thing that can happen to you because you are now ready to face these feelings and let them go for good.

If you keep them inside and try to suppress them, you may create more problems for yourself. The result of suppressing a negative feeling is a trapped emotion.

Trapped Emotions & TTC

Negative trapped emotions are formed when you do not allow the feeling of the emotion to move through your body and express itself. The emotions, when they arise, are there for a reason and you need to acknowledge them and allow the experience of the emotion to take you where you need to go.

If you don’t and suppress the emotions, they remain stuck inside of your body.

When trying to conceive, many emotions may surface and they need to be expressed in a healthy way by talking to your partner, your fertility doctor or anybody that can support you. If you have been diagnosed with an infertility issue, you will need even more support.

Often time, the emotional blocks are already present before you even decide to try for a baby.

These blocked are called trapped emotions. They are created as a result of trauma and emotional difficulties in your past.  You can have trapped negative emotions of fear, grief, resentment, betrayal failure, panic, guilt, shock from when you were younger going all the way back to your childhood. 

Once a trapped emotion is present, it continues to vibrate, causing you to attract more of the same negative emotional experiences.

How To Release Negative Emotions

There is a very simple method through which you can detect and release trapped emotions. This is accomplished through energy testing and energy clearing via distance.

You might believe that the emotions you feel right now as you are trying to conceive are created by your current experience, but what if the reason why you feel the way you do is cause by a trapped emotion?

We often don’t worry about the side effect of anger, sadness, bitterness, indecisiveness, etc. We believe that once we no longer feel the emotion, the emotion is gone. This is possible, only if you allowed the emotion to pass through you and teach you what you needed to learn by the experience that brought on the negative emotion.

But what if, you did not process the emotion in a healthy way and instead stuffed it inside of you? Unfortunately this is what most people do with stressful emotions every day. This is how negative emotions and infertility are connected.

Working on releasing trapped emotions is an amazing way to remove the emotional blocks to infertility and also to prevent your baby from inheriting your trapped negative emotions.

There are different types of trapped emotions: the most common ones are those you create as a result of trauma or difficulty, the others are prenatal, which are absorbed while you were still in your mother’s womb, and inherited, which you receive through the sperm or egg at the time of your conception.

Are Trapped Emotions Real?

Just because you do not physically see the emotion with your eyes, it does not mean that the emotion doesn’t exist in another form. Emotions do exist in the form of energy frequencies. They can actually be measured and they do have a presence within you because, when you feel an intense emotion, changes do happen at the level of your physiology.

The fight or flight response to fear and stress does have a physical effect on the body. You do feel the anger, the sadness, the guilt, the heartache in your body. Most people can feel it in a specific area of the body.

You blush when you are embarrassed, you feel pounding in your temple when you feel rage, you feel a knot in your stomach when fearful, or you experience a sensation of butterflies in your chest when anxious. These are all physiological responses to an emotional event.

They feel like an energy wave that comes and goes as the intense emotional response is felt. Often time emotions do not leave and remain stuck in the body. 

Trapped emotion do get lodged somewhere in your body.

Visualize the trapped emotion as a ball of energy the size of an orange or a bit larger lodged somewhere inside of your body.

How Does The Body Produce Trapped Emotions?

According to Chinese medicine, every negative emotion has a specific energetic signature and they are produced by a specific organ in the body. The heart is related to joy, the liver to anger, the spleen to worry, the lungs to anxiety and the kidneys to fear. 

In traditional Chinese medicine, the emotional imbalance is seen as the internal cause of disease.

Emotions are internal physiological responses to external events.

If dealt with accordingly, they do not cause disease and no weakness in the body is produced.

However, when the emotions are so intense, they can affect the internal organs and weaken the body opening the door to disease and dysfunction.

The intensity and the prolonged duration of a strong powerful emotion can cause damage over time. The result is an energy blockage in the flow of energy through energy pathways called meridians.

The result is:

  1. Weakness in the function of the body organs or systems.
  2. Disease and dysfunction in the tissue of the organ.
  3. Impaired energy flow through the organs.
  4. Continuing emotional imbalance at the mental and emotional levels.

Negative Emotion and Infertility Causes 

Trapped emotions can affect any type of body dysfunction and situation, including infertility.

For example, it is common to find trapped emotions located in the ovaries, uterus, thyroid gland, pituitary gland, liver, kidneys and adrenal glands.

Once trapped emotions are lodged in a gland, organ or tissue, other energetic imbalances related to infertility can occur. These can be:

1. Misalignment in the lower vertebra of the spine: when the nerve impulses that travel from the brain down the spinal cord to the female reproductive organs is impaired, the brain is no longer communicating along those nerves as efficiently as it should be. So, if you have less than fifty percent communication between the brain and the reproductive organs, your reproductive system is not functioning at its best.

2. Pathogenic energies from past infections: when the body has eliminated an invader but the energetic imprint of the pathogen is some how still making the immune system stay in a hypervigilant state draining its energetic power. This is often related to underlying trapped emotions lodged in the glands and organs of the immune system, like spleen, thymus, adenoids, tonsils, lymph nodes, etc.

3. Toxic energies due to harmful electromagnetic frequencies (EMF): the DNA of your ova or sperm can be negatively affected by these types of radiations and they can also cause miscarriages. Also, EMFs can affect your aura or bio-energy field and weaken you natural protective mechanism.

4. Chakra and meridian imbalances:  are in most cases related to trapped emotions. Chakras are energies centers, while meridians are energy pathways that move vital force energy throughout the body organs and support their energetic needs. When the energetic frequency of a trapped emotion is present, the energy does no move through the body as it should causing stagnation of blockage.

5. Spirit and body disconnections: when the physical body and the spiritual body are not fully connected in some area of the body, most likely in the reproductive system. This can happen as a result of emotional or physical trauma.  

Once a negative emotion trapped in the body is released, the body can find a state of ease and self-healing is stimulated in a gentle and natural way opening the door to conception.
