Strong Emotions Can Be Overwhelming.
Do you allow yourself to experience your strong emotions fully, or do you sometimes deny or repress them? After all, strong emotions can be overwhelming.
Can you remember a recent time when you were overwhelmed by your emotions?
- How did this impact you and those around you?
- What was your body saying to you through that emotion?
- Did you or others judge you for expressing your feelings?
Covering Up How We Really Feel Is Acceptable Behavior
For me tuning into my emotions is not always easy. I grew up in the UK, where we all had “a stiff upper lip” and where we all “soldiered on” despite how we were feeling about things. I find it can be helpful to review my emotions when I meditate. I can review the day and see how my body responds to certain situations, understand why, and, if need be, communicate with my body to help it adjust.
What Are Your Beliefs About Emotions?
Perhaps you were taught similar beliefs as I was? Or perhaps you came from a more passionate culture where emotions were expressed freely or even over-emphasized.
Meditate On Your Emotional Messages
Breathe deeply and connect with your body. Tune in to your body’s main emotion. Speak to your body and ask what it communicates through this emotion.
Take a moment to listen and respond. You can use this exercise to review your feelings throughout the day today.
