Hello there to you~
Todays post is short and sweet.
But it has an important message:
Feelings are meant to be felt. They’re not called ‘Blockings’.
In my practice every week, I see the results of people not feeling their feelings.
Here’s the news. Your feelings are like children, and they will call out louder and louder until you acknowledge them.
By this I mean, they are energy inside of you that will keep expanding and show up as either emotional distress, or physical illness at some later date.
The good news is that you can change that with this three point formula that I’ve taught hundreds of clients, and use myself.
So, here’s my 3 Quick Tips to Help You Deal With Your Feelings
1. ALLOW & RELEASE
When you’re suffering from any of the multitude of human feelings, don’t block them out. Just feel them. If you’re a private person, then do it in private. Take yourself away from everyone, and wallow in it. Be angry, sad, bitter and twisted, bereft, grief stricken, disappointed, hurt etc.
This is not going to be your permanent state by the way, it is simply the equivalent of holding a child, listening to them, wiping their tears, and then what do they do? They run off and feel a whole lot better. What do adults do? Block their feelings by doing other stuff. Even just bitching to your nearest and dearest about how bad you feel isn’t really feeling your feelings. It’s when you allow just you to sit with them that the real magic happens. Nothing wrong with sharing with a friend, but essentially, you’ve got to take the time with just you and your feelings, listen to them, allow then, and then it’s time for the next step.
2. DECISION TIME
What are you going to do about it, now that you’ve felt your feelings, totally accepted that you have a right to them, and you’re feeling a lot more peaceful within yourself? You can work out what to do next. The old Assissi prayer:
“Accept what you cannot change,
Change what you cannot accept,
And have the wisdom to know the difference.”
is fairly apt in this instance.
It’s worth reading this prayer over and over, because it really does give you whatever answer you need in order to know what to do next. Let someone know how they have made you feel? Don’t let them know? Accept them as they are? Let them go out of your life? Move on?
You are always divinely guided, that is my belief. Sometimes you want to shriek ‘Why me? I’m totally sick of all of my life lessons! Give me a break you up there in the Cosmic Committee!’ (This is the polite version, I couldn’t publish here what I say when I’m on a rant to the Universe:) Do you relate at all?
But my true belief is that we are not alone, ever. You’ve got to allow that Guidance in though, and it connects the best when your mind is still. This is best achieved through meditation, sitting in nature, playing a musical instrument, or whatever takes you on a mini vacation from your day to day life.
So, ALLOW & RELEASE, DECIDE, TRUST. These are three little thoughts to toss around when you next want to squash your feelings down.
Better to release them at the time, rather than accumulate them. The combined weight of a lot of unfelt feelings is not something we want. We want to be light and free!
Best love and Release As You Go is your new mantra. Please share this post, you never know who it might help:) I want to spread happiness and I’d love your help,
