What is emotion? We all have them to a varying degree but how much control do we really have? There are two main emotions from which all others stem...Love & Fear...everything else we feel evolves around one of these two. Honesty, truth, compassion, happiness all encompass love. Inadequacy, confusion, hatred, anger, shame, guilt are all fear based emotions. Each of these emotions releases different chemicals, if there is a constant release of fear based emotion your physical body will react in illness and your immune system will weaken.
So can you control your emotions? You cant control them that is the wrong word but you can learn to manage them. If you try to control them repressed emotions will leak out and the vicious cycle will continue. We all come to this lifetime with a lesson to learn. Our core lesson will continue to repeat itself until it is understood and learned. Your pathway will lead you gently towards solving these core issues.
Many of us are afraid of showing our feelings or even feeling our feelings, life is as much about what you feel as what you think. If we dont take time to 'feel' our emotions they become embedded in our bodies, in our muscles and our ligaments. It will take its toll on relationships as well. Write down your thoughts and feelings, your dreams and daydreams, these will all give you clues as to whats hidden or buried within yourself. Every time, every single time you feel a hurt write that hurt down, keep a list, look for a pattern....and learn to feel that emotion. Never say to yourself it doesnt matter, let the tears flow crying helps release these emotions. Ask your guides and angels to help you deal with these times.
Most importantly dont be afraid of emotions, welcome them good and bad and know that all of us are born with all the same emotions....we all just react differently to certain situations.
