Every emotion or experience we have gets stored in the cells of our bodies.  This is why unresolved traumas or wounds continue showing up in different areas of our lives until we begin to heal them.

If you have experienced tightness or pain throughout your body and it is not due to physical activity, (be sure to check with your physician for any reoccurring pain to be sure this is not due to an ailment),  Listen to what your body is trying to tell you.

These could be signs that your body wants you to find Inner Peace or Resolve Painful Issues or Traumas that you have avoided in the past.

The best thing you can do to stay aligned with your higher self, as well as prevent onset of rumination, is to be aware of how you perceive all the experiences in your life.

Instead of impulsively jumping from one emotion to the next, take a step back and see if there is any possible way you can learn from the experience,

Learn how to train yourself to observe, rather than to react.  You are in complete control, even when you do not think you are.  (Remember the Mind is the Builder)
