Our relationship to emotions
Last month I spoke about emotions and learning to allow emotions
and I would like to expand on that a little.
Most of us do not have a healthy relationship with our emotions
and that is why we are not free to express them.
When I work with people, their freedom begins
when they express the emotion that they feel
they cannot or should not express.
When they do that, they feel liberated and free.
Ask yourself if you feel trapped by any emotion.
Ask yourself if you are free to express across all
spectrums of emotions with different levels of intensity.
If not, there is very likely a perception in your mind
keeping you from expressing.
In essence, emotions are not good or bad, right or wrong.
It is our relationship to emotions that labels them good or bad.
They all have a place and need a place to be.
When you let your emotions BE, they will let you BE!
Be also careful of being loud. It does not necessarily
mean that you have the ability to express emotions.
Emotions are deep and they are felt by others.
They don’t come from your head.
Next time you are having a conversation with a friend or your partner,
Consider where you are speaking from.
Are you speaking from your head or
are you including your emotional body too?
Try that out and let me know how it goes
Ps: We learn from distinctions. A distinction is when you are able to distinguish something from something else. Try this exercise and see whether you can distinguish you communication coming from your head or your emotive body.
Pps: There is a lot more to emotions and expression. One step at a time 😉
