As we evolve and integrate our authentic values into our lives, we may trigger unconscious reactions. Fear, blame, shame, judgment, feelings of inadequacy and doubt may come to the surface as the ego resists moving into new ways of being. The emotional body may go through a detoxification process to shed old patterns and assumptions. When we are allowed to fully experience feelings, an internal shift can occur which frees us from the grip of the past.
