Afterย the surrendering phase comes the ๐—™๐—˜๐—˜๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐—š phase where we are able to display our strength with the conscious decision to redirect towards a higher-vibe emotion. A thought that moves us up the emotional scale. Yet we need to remove the story that it is a race to “move past” these lower-vibe feelings. We arenโ€™t bad or wrong for experiencing these emotions… fear, sadness, anxiety, and more…
If youโ€™re an empath like me, sometimes the only thing you want to do is divorce any and all yucky feelings. You know…the ones you want to shed like a second skin that no longer fits. We learn, practice and preach the methods of how to get back to a place of gratitude, to a better feeling thought, towards higher vibe emotions. One trip into the scroll suck ๐Ÿ“ฑ (๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ… ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ข ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ) and we find ourselves inundated with positive affirmations, mindset trainings, positive thinking tools, positive mantras and quote galore. They all will/do help when the time is right. โฃ
I’m here advocating for us to ๐—™๐—˜๐—˜๐—Ÿ. To allow the heaviness or happiness to be fully experienced. Fully discovered. These emotions we were given to provide us with the breadcrumb trail we need for self-discovery. They show us how these emotions aid or hinder us in regards to showing up in alignment with our values and integrity in each unique situation. It doesnโ€™t take long to identify the trend. Everything from where we feel anger in our body to how we react when angry. Each emotion has its own identifying characteristics. Iโ€™m sure we have all heard the quote, โ€œhow we do one thing is how we do everythingโ€, this is true across different situations with the same emotion. For example, whenever I feel vulnerable in my body it shows up as pressure just below my clavicle, like where a baby rests their head while napping on your chest. My reactionary response is anger or frustration. Doesnโ€™t matter what situation makes me feel vulnerable, these are my natural โ€˜reactionsโ€™. Contrary to this, it is not the same across all emotions… when I am grateful I feel that as whole body warming, I have a softer delivery and presence. Again, doesnโ€™t matter what makes me feel grateful, gratitude across the board shows up like this for me….a unique feeling for each emotion .โฃ
Now imagine if an emotion rises up and it creates discomfort of any kind and we always jump right to trying to move up the emotional scale. โฃ
– Do you think this helps us to further discover ourselves?
– Do you believe it helps us become more clear as to why this situation has us triggered? โฃ
– Does it give us the time to evaluate what, if anything, we can control in this situation? โฃ
– Will it support us in finding a more productive way to process or show up? โฃ
If we donโ€™t allow ourselves to deeply feel, how do we even know what can be birthed from our pain or joy? What purpose lies in that emotion being laid upon our heart? It was put there with purpose on purpose. Some of the best innovations in the world stem from emotions that are lower on the emotional scale. When a human feels powerless they often discover and develop new ways to protect and/or heal others.
Thereโ€™s power in our emotions. Thereโ€™s incredible insight and growth that comes from allowing ourselves to ๐—™๐—˜๐—˜๐—Ÿ all of them. โฃ
Before I closed my eyes last night I asked for guidance, to receive a message…clarity. I snapped awake at 1:50 (๐˜ ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ถ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฅ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ ๐˜ข ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต). The message came through clear for me. I grabbed my phone to record the gift. The lifting of shame for the very real feelings I am experiencing, as I am sure are each of you. Most of us have never experienced anything that resembles COVID 19. Itโ€™s is normal to feel like we are on an emotional rollercoaster. Yet I woke up with my gift of a โ€˜silver linings. Iโ€™m able to celebrate the fact that I didnโ€™t try to push through. I settled and surrendered into my natural emotions AND I asked for help.
My hope is that my gift may pay forward a perspective that aids us all in accepting, ๐—™๐—˜๐—˜๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ก๐—š, and discovering, โ‘  ๐™ƒ๐™Š๐™’ weโ€™re feeling…. โ‘ก ๐™’๐™ƒ๐™” weโ€™re feeling it … and lastly โ‘ข ๐™’๐™ƒ๐˜ผ๐™ are we going to do with it?
