Inspirational Snippet: Emotions

Ever feel Horrible? Ever feel Sad? Ever feel Angry? Ever feel excited?  Ever feel thrilled?  Ever feel great?

This week's snippet is a quote from Deepak Chopra on Emotions. It was so well said and in line with what I feel about emotions.
"Emotions are energy in motion. They bring us information if we are willing to experience them. Unfortunately, many of us are afraid of the energy of emotions and so we automatically resist them. And when we refuse to experience our emotions, we block them up. They become trapped and that entrapment drains our energy and brings continuing discomfort.
Don't let emotions push you into action or reaction. Just STOP and PAY ATTENTION. Allow them to be and to speak to you. Once they are acknowledged, their energy is released.
Instead of resisting any emotion, the best way to dispel it is to enter it fully, embrace it and see through your resistance."

Some questions for you to ponder today:  What emotions do you not allow yourself to feel?   What emotions have you been afraid to express?  What emotions do you find easier to deal with?
What distractions/coping mechanisms do you use not to feel?

As humans, we have been given a beautiful rainbow of emotions and as such we get to experience and learn many things from them. Emotions can be overwhelming when we are not comfortable with experiencing them, but they can also be a form of release and just what we need to move forward in our journey. Allow yourself to feel the good with the bad and you will see the world in a whole different way.
My wish for you is to feel the rainbow that we call emotions.

Love to you,
