Today I want to tell you about loving all your feelings.
It’s not easy to have some feelings.
Some feelings just feel like too much.
And so we run away from them.
We can run away and eat or drink, exercise, work. Anything that will distract us from the feelings.
Maybe because when we were kids we couldn’t deal with those intense feelings, and it became a habit.
Maybe because now we don’t want to feel bad so we try to numb it out and feel something different.
The problem is that, when the feeling is there, it won’t go away, until you acknowledge it.
You can try to do something else, you can get distracted for some time. But after a while it will certainly come. And sometimes, with a vengeance.
So the best thing to do is to listen to the feelings right away.
They have things to tell you.
They are your friends.
They’re here to love you, warn you, protect you.
If you stay with your feelings and learn from them, you’ll soon discover new things.
You learn new things about yourself, about what’s in your unconscious, about what’s going on around you.
You can stop doing things you don’t want to do. But that you now do, to escape.
You feel better also because, when you allow the feelings you don’t want. And when you feel them. You are integrating parts of you that are forgotten.
Staying with your feelings is really life changing. It has changed my life, for sure.
As you stay with your feelings, you’ll feel more in control of your emotions. You’ll be able to use them to your advantage.
So, see every feeling as something important.
Feel every feeling fully.
Don’t run away. You can feel it. You can also listen to the stories the ego is telling you. They are stories, they’re not the truth. But you’ll learn the stories that are running you. And you’ll be able to overcome them.
Where are you running away from your feelings?
When do you feel you want to eat something special?
Or you want to have a drink?
When do you need to escape?
Instead of escaping to bad habits and learning nothing whatsoever, why don’t you try staying with that feelings.
Hear what they have to say.
And be freer for it.
Lots of love,
