Emotional Repression- a Common Root of Disease

Children are programmed to act in accordance to the will of others from the day they are born and throughout their lives. If they don’t feel naturally connected to their mother, or if their mother emits energy of extreme distress during early infancy, hardening of muscles and organs can develop and cause sickness such as colds and colic. If they grow up shamed for exploring their body and anything that’s considered taboo to the culture they live in, this will keep them from feeling comfortable in expressing their genuine needs and feelings. The great researcher and founder of the Orgone energy theory, Wilhelm Reich, considers emotional repression as “armoring.” He taught the importance of raising “unarmored,” self-regulated children. This is an important prerequisite to real health and an essential step to a sane, functioning society.
