Learning about Emotion

Learning your “Emotion Scores”

Emotions are constantly in flux between flow and resistance states.  When we say “emotional score,” we mean the overall levels of your emotional state. Practicing Emotional intelligence helps with understanding those states and managing yourself. With high emotional intelligence, you can switch your default emotional state to the one you desire because of your ability to regulate those emotions. Through mindfulness and taking the right actions, you can become focused, relaxed, happy, confident, and enthusiastic on command.

It takes time and practice to develop emotional intelligence. But first, you must have a growth mindset and believe that you can improve your EI no matter where you start. There is no limit to how much you can improve your emotional intelligence.  There are three simple ideas to focus on as you learn more about yourself and your emotional guidance system.

#1. Know Yourself

#2. Define Your Values And Beliefs

#3. Ask And Listen To Yourself

Along with emotional intelligence comes Emotional awareness: recognizing and making sense of your own emotions and other people’s emotions. Emotions are the universal language. Even though you may not fully understand another person’s experience, you can still empathize with the emotions they feel. 

Emotions are also essential to bringing us inner joy. Often, we depend on outside events to bring us joy, peace, and confidence. While it’s good to celebrate joyous occasions in life, you’ll find yourself sad, bored, depressed, angry, upset, annoyed, etc., if you constantly look for joy outside of you.

Emotions are present to teach and show us our thought and feeling patterns.  Our past experiences become an emotional habit in our subconscious operating system.  Seeing the pattern of emotion will help us understand what is confirmed in the present moment and what is in the operating system of the past. 

We want to outline each emotion for you to become familiar with what it feels like to be connected to each. Learning your feelings is to manage your connection to the positives and your disconnection from the negatives.

Resistance States

Resistant emotion will help you see what you may be resisting in your life.  These emotions guide you to the “lies” you have come to believe about yourself or others.

Many of us have been programmed not to be honest with ourselves.  We have been taught to tell ourselves that these emotions are “bad” or that we shouldn’t feel this way.  That is simply not true.  We are meant to feel.  We are vibrational beings who are meant to feel the human experience.  ALL emotions guide us to the truth within ourselves.

When observing the negative emotions, ask yourself what is the “truth” in this emotion and how you can observe the story in a new way to shift it into a higher vibrational thought and feeling.  Through practice, you will come to “see” these emotions as teachers and thank them for showing you the beliefs you have come to accept that may no longer serve you.  They are part of your experience of life.  We must know the opposite of the positive to understand and feel what the positive truly is full of.  Resistance reveals the full spectrum of feelings.  We have to accept and allow all ranges of emotion to feel through life fully!

Where you place your attention is where you put your energy.  The stronger the emotion you feel in that attention, the more you create your emotional reality.  Observing your emotion and becoming aware of the present feeling allows you to be proactive with the emotion and respond to life rather than being in a constant state of reaction and habit to the past.  You are NOT your emotion.  Your emotion is present to show you your relationship to the everyday experience.  Keeping your attention on YOU and where you give your power to that emotion is the key to true self-empowerment.
