I often have powerful Inner Journeys that take me to amazing places, show me interesting things, and teach me empowering messages – I recently had one that showed me how we hold onto old wounds by creating an ’emotional scab’.
Instead of completely letting go and healing difficult circumstances, we attempt to cover them over and move past them. While it might seem as though they have been dealt with, you can never really move past something that hasn’t been completely resolved.
So what is an emotional scab?
When you have a physical wound, a scab is formed as a protection while it heals. The body then goes about healing and you know it’s done when the wound is transformed back to skin, or you have a scar in its place. The same is true of emotional wounds.
