What Do I Do With Emotions?

What Do I Do With Emotions?

I myself have asked this question about emotions since I was a really young kid. It’s what I kept asking, and trying to figure out in my life by observation. I have this huge, big picture perspective about life and always have. Yet, I couldn’t understand why we struggled and abused ourselves, and each other, to no end.

The truth is, I slowly adapted to the world in which I lived, and understood how comically similar we are at the core of being human. So I was able to understand that, we all have emotions, and that they were linked to both the mind and the body. And that our thoughts created our reality.

Emotional Healing From Feelings Buried Alive

Emotional Healing From Feelings Buried Alive

I remember so much about my life. From the beginning, to now and into the future even. I can’t say how much control I have of my thoughts, although I have become more mindful about observing them. I have begun to train and rewire my brain and body with conscious effort. The trouble is, now I know that the bodymind can store memories and emotions. Did you know the heart thinks?

During my self-healing journey, I have been on a mission to purge my life of everything that no longer serves a purpose in my future. I have been restoring my house and routines into order. As well as my mental space and heart wounds. This, my friends, was the hard part.

A new kind of emotional awareness of my mental patterns started to take place. As I worked with my body’s energies, I started to really notice in my meditations where exactly i was hurting. When I drop into my own little world of calm and connected meditation, I scan my body. I notice the little uncomfortable places, my posture, the pull of gravity, and any soreness. Some of these areas, I note to address later on. Others, I know are pains and weaknesses I have had for a very long time. Why is that?

I was having an inner battle with my ego, my dark side, traumatic memories in my conscious awareness. The more I focused on one area of pain or weakness, the more I began to think about these negative thoughts and memories. Like I said earlier, you only have so much control of your thoughts. My heart hurt, real bad.

Forgiveness Causes Emotional Healing

Dear Hugin and Munin,

During my self-healing journey, I have been on a mission to purge my life of everything that no longer serves a purpose in my future. I have been restoring my house and routines into order. As well as my mental space. This, my friends, was the hard part.

A new kind of emotional awareness of my mental patterns started to take place. As I worked with my body’s energies, I started to really notice in my meditations where exactly where in my body, that I was hurting. When I drop into my own little world of calm and connected, I scan my body. I notice the little uncomfortable places, my posture, the pull of gravity, and any soreness. Some of these areas, I note to address later note. Others, I know are pains and weaknesses I have had for a very long time.

I think about and remember so much about my life. From the beginning, now and into the future even in some moments. I can’t say how much control I have of my thoughts, although I have become more mindful about observing them. I have begun to train and rewire my brain with conscious effort.

Why is that?

Be Mindful of Your Moments In Time

Be Mindful of Your Moments In Time

I have become so much more of a mindful person in the last few months! What started with Folding Clothes to Perfection, lessons in mindfulness has ended up being an amazing gift of appreciation for every moment in time. Expanding my awareness and living inside each moment.

I’ll be honest, I get called out for being a bit of a “space cadet”, constantly checking in and out of reality. Thinking and listening to everything all at once. Off, in my own little world.

Especially when life is moving and things are happening all around you, whether at work or school or home or out. You use your mind openly, to scan and observe and react to it all happening at the moment. And by being in a more mindful state of being, it really allows you to catch all the little amazing messages in every moment. I’m really starting to be aware of what matters to me, and what it even means to be alive.

Alternatively, I am multi-tasking much less. By being a more focused person when I am performing a task, I have found that I have gotten closer and closer to perfection. Additionally, these tasks take me less time to do them. Allowing me more time to do the things I ‘want’ to do instead.
