Emotions are the reason we do everything we do.
We lose weight to feel happier. We get a new job to feel happier. We get a new partner to feel happier.
But, it doesn’t work. We have to find out how to be happy first… and we look to our thoughts. What we choose to think can make us happy.
But, what are emotions anyway?
They are simply vibrations in our body.
So many of us have been trained to ignore or push down our emotions… to not feel them… to ignore, avoid, or resist them.
But, what exactly are we fighting so hard against?
It is just a vibration in your body.
Try this. Imagine a cute, little green alien. He does not know “emotions” or “feelings”. He asks you to describe what your emotions feel like in your body. What words can you use to describe what is happening in your body?
Start paying attention to your body. Try to allow those emotions (not react or resist… just feel the physical sensations).
Write down how each emotion you have feels in your body. Can you differentiate between similar emotions by where you feel them in your body?
