Make Friends with Your Emotions

img_9551HONORING EMOTIONS AS WISDOM AND INTELLIGENCE

Humans have many levels of experience and expression. Our emotional nature helps us get in touch with what is occurring in our body and life. Crying is not weakness, it is a relief valve to let go of something that is hidden inside and needs recognition and expression.

Too often we suppress or deny or ignore ourselves and keep on plugging on. That is the way I was raised, and it did not make sense to me. To feel is a great gift. They are a not weakness but intelligence and strength to explore. Emotions are a gateway to something to notice and attend to.

As we address our emotions we can reflect and awaken our deeper reality. Something is not okay, and might not have been for a long time. Listening to our inner self, our truth center is a practice worth learning.

Everything makes sense, and its for us to figure it out. I am not a big emotional expresser, so when I am sad or angry or crying I know its something for me to attend to. We deserve paying attention to what is going on and what we need. Emotions tell us its time and we have neglected something for too long.

All physical healing has emotional, mental and spiritual components. When we address the emotions we are on the road to healing physical and emotional disease and pain.

To embrace our emotions, and become curious what our body-self is telling us, is an important step. What hurts us? What have we suppressed? What have we made okay that is not okay? What do we want to be different that hurts? Where are we not living our truth?

These questions and more allow us to stop the pain and heal the wounds. I teach zero tolerance with what is not okay with us. This immediately lets us see what we are not dealing with or doing to take care of us.

Its okay not to be okay. As we acknowledge what hurts or feels incorrect, we can then make needed changes. When we constantly suppress, or fear instead of deal, emotions build up, until they cannot any longer, and need release.

A good cry helps us flow, and find a healthy balance. Love yourself enough to let go and find out what is blocked inside, so you can operate your life from a happy, healthy place.

Enjoy the Journey,
