Your Emotions are Messengers
Your emotions are messengers.
They exist for a reason. They're not just random.
If you listen, they are always telling you what's really wrong. They are always showing you the path back to yourself.
They start as nudges or flashes.
If you don't heed them, they move on to more elaborate means of getting your attention.
Up to and including total meltdowns.
But they don't give up. Ever.
The degree to which you listen to them directly correlates to the degree of peace you feel in your life.
The degree to which you ignore them directly correlates to the degree of discord you feel in your life.
How do you listen to them?
It's a process.
First, you must be self-aware enough to stop yourself when the emotion surfaces.
Second, you must separate yourself from the subjectivity of the emotion. Become the observer. Acknowledge the emotion without feeling it.
Third, you must follow the path of the emotion down into your subconscious. It's there you'll find the root of it.
That root can be several things.
It could be an old hurt you need to release.
It could be a lesson you need to learn.
It could be a warning you need to heed.
But the sooner you start examining
your recurring emotions, the sooner you'll start to build a more peaceful and authentic life.
And if not that, what's the point of anything?
Sending you all so much love.
