Emotional Insights

By Kimberley Cohen
When we experience emotions that are fun, joyous, loving, happy, comforting, magical, peaceful, etc. we want to hang on to them like they are our life savers.
But when we encounter feelings of anger, doubt, confusion, sadness, depression, anxiety, pain, suffering, etc., we want to cast them away and get rid of them quick like they are the worst things imaginable.
Feelings, whether they are comfortable or uncomfortable are filled with emotional insights.
We can learn so much about ourselves, our beliefs, our thoughts, our ways, and our existence from them. So why would we want to run away, deny, or get rid of them?
We want to toss the unsettling ones aside because they don't feel good. Somewhere we learned they aren't okay, or that they aren't acceptable, or are bad, or you "shouldn't" feel that way, or perhaps you "should" be beyond these feelings, or they are too intense, etc.
These unwanted emotions are really feelings wanting to be explored, not ignored.
You can keep avoiding them and/or stay in your comfort zone, but eventually someone or something will trigger them within you.
What can you do when these internal storms stir? Move with them and through them.
Meet them. Greet them. Befriend them. Learn, grow and expand from them.
Your feelings aren't your enemy, your thoughts toward them are.
Emotions aren't good or bad, unless you believe or label them as being one or the other. You let go of them when you acknowledge they are there, when you feel the energy within them, when you see them for what they are, and when you are ready to set them free... you will.
Some feelings come and go quite quickly, while others seem to hang on and leave one afraid of what's lurking beneath. Ahhh... but these lingering ones have so much to offer us.
Accepting your feelings, especially the ones you try to avoid, doesn't mean staying stuck in them, it means being conscious of them; an observer within them. When you open to them, rather than close them off or shut them out, there comes a silent understanding that truly can change your perceptions and outcomes.
Next time unwanted feelings surface don't try to sink them, or jump overboard to get away from them; float with them, relax within them, see where they take you.
Yes, it might feel like you are bobbing or flailing around in uncharted territory and perhaps you are, but rest assure, because there is a life saver from the greatest source waiting for you.
Know there is space within your emotions where you can breathe freely and will guide you through, if you allow it.
Each moment offers us new discoveries into our souls. It is through the darkness that the light comes shining through, this is emotional insight.
Remember, breakthroughs surface from internal storms.
