Pay close attention to what you are feeling.
The relationship we have with our feelings determines the quality of our life experience. When we judge and label our feelings as wrong or bad we create a violent, hostile inner environment where we try to push away and reject an aspect of our experience.
This resistance to what IS creates tension and contraction in the body and the feelings, which are ultimately energy, do not have space to move freely and become trapped. With nowhere to go this energy is repressed and over time builds up until eventually the body can no longer handle it and it becomes dis-ease.
When we recognise this unhealthy behavioural pattern we can consciously choose to experience our feelings differently. We can meet them as internal guidance signals, grateful to each one for the message it is conveying to us.
The feelings which are pleasant are communicating that we are on track in life, and the unpleasant ones are communicating that something is amiss. They are trying to bring our attention to something which is out of alignment in life, be it a thought, a belief or an action we are taking.
We can recognise all feelings as being equally valid and allow ourselves to fully experience each one for what it is, without trying to escape from inner discomfort by numbing ourselves. When we work in harmony with our feelings we can see more clearly what it is that they are communicating to us and there is no longer a need to reject or repress, creating a much healthier inner environment ~ Louise 💚
