Have you ever wondered what makes you cry? Have you ever felt a strong sensation in your stomach when you are nervous or excited? Have you ever noticed a difference between the tears you shed when you are hurt emotionally and the ones you shed when you are hurt physically?
Our emotions are not part of our physical body. They are linked to our body, but they have their own existence. When we realize that our emotions have their own energy field, we can learn more about how they affect us on different levels: physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual.
To understand our emotions, we need to go beyond our thoughts. Our thoughts belong to our mental realm or our mental body. When we try to analyze or reason about our emotions, we are using logic. Emotions have their own language, and they communicate on a different level than our thoughts.
Empathy is a good example of this. Have you ever watched a movie and suddenly found yourself crying? I know I have. I remember when I was a young boy feeling awkward and ashamed because a movie made me sad, and I didn’t want anyone to see me cry. What I experienced in that moment was a combination of three things happening at once: watching a movie, which is a physical activity, triggered something in my emotional body that made me react emotionally, which then made my body react physically (crying), and then my mental body had to make sense of my physical and emotional experience. Since I was raised as a young boy and was told that I shouldn’t have emotions or that I shouldn’t express them openly, I felt judgment towards my emotional and physical self.
How many of you can relate to this situation?
Our emotions can have a profound impact on our lives. They can affect our physical health, our mental health, our relationships, and our overall well-being. When we are feeling positive emotions, such as joy, love, and gratitude, we are more likely to be healthy, happy, and successful. However, when we are feeling negative emotions, such as anger, sadness, and fear, we are more likely to experience health problems, relationship problems, and other challenges.
There are several things you can do to manage your emotions more effectively. One important thing is to learn to identify and label your emotions. This can help you to better understand your emotions and why you are feeling them. Once you are able to identify and label your emotions, you can start to develop strategies for coping with them in a healthy way.
Another important thing is to learn to express your emotions in a healthy way. This does not mean that you have to express all of your emotions all of the time. However, it is important to find healthy ways to express your emotions, such as talking to a friend or therapist, writing in a journal, or engaging in physical activity.
