The Case of Feeling Constantly Overwhelmed w/Christy Whitman

Health Mysteries Solved Podcast with Inna Topiler

Could unprocessed emotional energy cause a roller coaster of depression and anxiety?

The Case: 

  • Lindsay is 38 and constantly feels overwhelmed by her job, health, and life.
  • She swings from depression to anxiety and can’t get a handle on things.
  • She tried different diets, supplements and saw several experts including an integrative psychologist.

The Investigation

When I met with Lindsay, she had already tried and eliminated several of the root causes I would have investigated including removing gluten from her diet and supplementing with probiotics and specific amino acids (which may remind you of Episode 35, The Case of Unpredictable Anxiety w/ Trudy Scott). But, like I always say, every case is unique. 

With the usual suspects out of the way, I had to look deeper. I noticed that Lindsay seemed ‘in her head’ a lot. It reminded me of the old me and I knew this would be where the investigation would begin. 

Joining me on the show is Christy Whitman. She’s transformational leader, celebrity coach and the New York Times Bestselling Author of The Art of Having It All. Christy is also the CEO and founder of the Quantum Success Learning Academy & Quantum Success Coaching Academy. 

The connection between Christy and Lindsay’s case may not be immediately obvious. To see the connection, you have to understand a little bit about quantum physics. Luckily, Christy is happy to explain. 

Quantum Physics and Our Health

Everything is energy including a chair, a tree, or a human body. Everything in the universe is made up of atoms and molecules which are energy. And all energy carries a vibration. That vibration is communication that goes out into the universe and then attracts other like energies. We are sending out vibrations and we are also receiving them. This happens spontaneously at a cellular level. This could be in a blood cell, a liver cell or a brain cell. Often, the body doesn’t know how to receive energy. 

Conditioned Not to Feel

Christy explains that part of the problem people have with this flow of energy is when they don’t know how to feel this energy or they reject it – especially when it relates to childhood conditioning. Many kids are told not to cry, to bottle up anger, or not to be sad. Even telling someone not to be afraid is a suppression of emotional energy. Over time, this treatment of energy becomes so habitual that it becomes a state of being. Christy says this can lead to depression, anxiety or a diseased state of the body. 

Feel the Feels

Instead of suppressing feelings and emotions, Christy says it is much healthier to feel those emotions and process them completely. It takes only 90 seconds for the body to feel the woosh of a feeling, sit with it, experience it and then release it fully. However, most people either suppress it or allow it to compound by adding on to it. This can amplify emotions and create a spiraling effect. This then becomes very unpleasant and so we distract ourselves from those feelings by eating, drinking, shopping, etc. 

Feel it in the Body, Not the Head

We may think that emotions and feelings are something we process with our thoughts but they are actually processed in the body. We have to feel them. If we try to process them with our minds, they get stuck and can easily be reactivated. The more this happens, the more it compounds and overwhelms us. As a result, we close down to emotions because we don’t want them piling on. But, just because we’re shut down, that doesn’t mean the energy goes away. Instead, explains Christy, it spirals and creates an energetic vortex that attracts similar emotions to it. 

Emotional Energy Impacts Organs

Unprocessed energy or emotions can impact the health of your organs. Different emotions impact different organs. Anger gets contained in the liver and gallbladder. This can show up physically as headaches, skin issues, sluggishness, and high blood pressure and emotionally as resentment, frustration, irritability, and rage.

Grief sits in the lungs. Unprocessed grief can feel like a tightness in our chest, or we might become prone to bronchitis, pneumonia, or asthma. It can also show up as shoulder pain, back pain, hoarseness of the throat, or constant cough

Fear resides in our kidneys and our bladder and it’s like adrenal fatigue. But when we’re constantly in a space of worry, that’s now a habitual way of being. In that state, we can see issues with digestion and stomach pain.

Master Your Own Energy

Getting your energy cleared out can be done by an energy healer but it is possible to manage your own energy. As an energy master, you will be able to pay attention to your thoughts and pivot them to serve the flow of your energy. There is no need to be a victim of consciousness because it’s possible to be a deliberate creator of our lives and choose how we want to feel. 

To clear your own energy, start by dropping your consciousness from your head and putting it into your belly.  Then, just sit there and feel for a pulsation, like a heartbeat. Once you feel it, focus on it and allow it to get bigger and bigger. Then, just like a wave on the ocean that you are surfing, you let it crest and ride it through. As the wave subsides, you will have released some of that old, stuck energy. 

Clearing old emotions is important because feelings like pain, grief, sorrow, and disappointment can imprint on us over time and change our state of being so that we are much more likely to be activated and feel sad, depressed, anxious or hopeless.  

The Seven Essential Laws

There are seven essential laws that govern energy. Christy and I discuss a few of them in this episode, but here are all seven:

  1. The Law of Attraction
  2. Law of Deliberate Creation
  3. The Law of Allowing
  4. The Law of Sufficiency and Abundance
  5. Law of Pure Potentiality
  6. Law of Detachment
  7. The Law of Polarity

Mystery Solved

With every case, we have to look at every possible root cause. With Lindsay, we were able to track her concerns back to the disconnect between her head and body. We started with breathing exercises that helped her focus on the feelings in her body. Then we used a body scan meditation to reconnect her to her body. If you want to try this, check out my guided meditation in episode 39

We also fixed a few things in her diet and she was feeling more balanced, most of the time. But, when life got extra challenging, she was still having extreme emotional reactions. Further testing revealed that she was also an over methylator (you can learn more about this in episode 34). So, we used niacin and folinic acid to help support her pathways from a biochemical end. In addition, Lindsay decided to see an energy healer to help her clear out past emotions.

Happy Ending

Lindsay started feeling more balanced with her mood in about a month and after 3 months, she really felt stable. But even more importantly, she felt like now she had the tools to not only maintain that emotional stability but to deal with any unexpected emotional issues that arise. 

Eliminating Health Mysteries

For Lindsay we were able to find that missing piece of the health puzzle and help her regain her health. Could this be the missing clue for you or someone in your life?
