This is a great topic. I'm glad that you shared your goal for releasing negative emotions. This is a necessary to step to achieving wholeness and peace. I would like to suggest that you first make a list of your negative emotions. After you list the first negative emotion, leave the rest of the page blank. Periodically go back to the emotion and write down where it might have originated and how the original experience felt (i.e., childhood hurts, etc.). Then take time to grieve that experience and allow yourself to feel it.
