Today’s Takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – via ZOOM – 06 September 2020 is:
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”Helen Keller
Today our coffeeshop coaching group topic centered around opening up to our emotions and allowing them to give us guidance without taking over our decision making. Emotional feelings can be scary; they can be hurtful, and they can be uncomfortable. We still should not close ourselves to these emotions. We alternatively can open up to these emotions, recognize them for what they are. We can practice allowing them to help us find direction instead of either denying them altogether or allowing them to take over the steering wheel off our lives. Emotions remind us, as so many times in our lives, that finding the right balance is the art of finding the right way.
When feeling strong emotions or out of control try asking:
- What is this emotion expressing to me?
- What inside of me needs to express itself?
- What awareness of mine can I recognize in this?
If you didn’t notice an answer, repeat the same question, and try asking for the answer to come through pictures, words, feelings, sounds, tastes. Notice your intension when asking and listening.
