Did You Know That You Are Attracting What You Don’t Want When You Avoid Feeling Your Emotions?
Oh emotions, we love the pleasant ones and avoid the uncomfortable ones. We develop addictions, belief systems and armor to guard ourselves from feeling them but it is those so called “bad” emotions that give us insight into who we are and what we need to live a fulfilling life.
Sometimes we think that by not talking about them or ignoring them altogether that we will “get over it” but unfortunately that is the fast track to attracting more of what you don’t want.
When paying attention to your uncomfortable emotions which can show up in the form of anxiety, guilt, frustration, sadness, ect… look at them as gifts.
Challenge yourself to address those feelings with a sense of curiosity and intrigue rather than fear and worry. By looking at these so called “bad emotions” with a new perspective there will be a better chance that they will reveal the important messages to you.
If you’re ready to start facing those emotions here are 3 ways to get started:
1. Be Alone with Your Feelings
Start by acknowledging the emotions by sitting with them and feeling them in your body. By acknowledging the presence of the emotion you are giving it an opportunity to “speak to you”. Feel it in your body and see where it takes you…
2. Get It Out
Talk it out with a friend or journal it out. When things stay in our minds we have a hard time seeing the big picture. Speaking or writing out our thoughts has an ability to create the clarity so we can discover solutions.
3. Action Plan
Ask yourself questions like “what is my next step?” or “what do I need to be open to?” Try coming up with something that you can do to solve your dilemma or at least be open to the idea of a solution.
Please starting with just these 3 simple exercises so you can start attracting more of what you want instead of what you don’t want… Yes just by paying attention to your emotions.
Remember, the solutions are revealed by walking through emotions not around them.
