9 Facts about Unfinished Business
- Occurs when experiences are not completed for some reason.
- Often due to avoidance or conflict.
- Contains memories and associations that still have “voltage” or emotional energy. Finished Business does not maintain “voltage.”
- Stays in the memory with two to three times the force of Finished Business.
- Drains energy.
- Becomes a rigid, fixed pattern that keeps demanding to be re-experienced.
- The hope that if we re-experience it, it will come out differently, and we will get what we want.
- Relationships will give us an opportunity to re-create the experience (feelings).
- The more Unfinished Business we can release, the more we are available for new experiences.
