Happy, excited, curious, anxious, angry, fearful, sad, introspective, hopeful…content—Where do YOU fit it in? Venturing a guess, it’s likely that you can identify with this entire range of feelings and emotions (and then some) at any given time. The question is: are you aware and in touch with your deeper emotional self?
Your emotions can be clues as to what’s truly important to you and are even the drivers to the actions you take. It’s not unusual to feel an excited or happy flush come over you, or to feel an anxious pang hit you in your gut. However, in order to experience real connection with yourself and others, it’s imperative to be in touch with where those sensations stem from and what they really mean.
Here at Thriving Relationships we’re aware it’s sometimes difficult to clearly identify your emotions, let alone understand where they stem from and how they can impact you. That’s why we’ve devised a simple approach, using effective tools and exercises—like awareness meditations, specialized breathing techniques and body scans—to help you become aware and knowledgeable of where those sensations arise from and what they mean.
Emotions are neither good, nor bad. They are neutral, up until the point that you interpret and utilize them. In fact, we encourage you to use your body like an antenna to capture messages and register, differentiate and understand every emotion.
Life can be difficult, or out-of-this-world joyful—it’s your choice how you respond and act upon what life brings your way. Thriving Relationships will help you understand, master and express your emotional self so that you can authentically connect with yourself and others, better fulfill your unmet needs and enjoy a purposeful and meaningful life.
