Yesterday, I was asked if I could talk about how to release negative emotions. On the heels of some current events, she was experiencing not only her own anger and upset, but her friend’s, as well.
All of your emotional upsets are caused by lack of harmony, imbalances and unresolved issues, from your past or present, in the emotional body. Now, here’s the kicker, 98% of that upset is what you picked up from other people. That’s right, you are picking up other people’s feelings, thoughts and emotions all of the time. For example, my client realized that she was feeling just fine until her friend called her. She now knows that she picked up her friend’s upset and took it on as her own.
Your body is an amazing energy-sensing machine and has its own consciousness. It is designed to give you sensory input, but most people don’t even realize that they’re taking on someone else’s upset. Ever since you were in the womb, you have been a sponge that picks up the energy around you all of the time. Have you ever been referred to as being too sensitive? The truth is that your sensitivity is actually your gift – your ability. You are so much more psychic than you give yourself credit for. The problem is not your sensitivity, it’s that you are taking on the energy of other people and making it your own.
What, then, can you do when the negative emotions take over?
Tamara’s 7 Tips For Keeping Your Emotions In Check:
- Who does this belong to?
First and foremost, ask yourself; Who does this belong to? You don’t even have to answer the question to begin to feel a shift. Only the ego wants to know the answer. If you’re still in a funk, then ask, Hey body, what awareness are you sharing with me? Or, What awareness am I avoiding? Another great question is; What’s the gift in experiencing this now?
- Stop yourself from reacting
Reaction indicates that you are judging what you are experiencing. For example, you may be judging that you are wrong or that they are wrong. Instead of going there, just say to yourself; They have an interesting point of view, and, I have an interesting point of view. This helps you to stop taking what’s happening between you so seriously and personally. If you do react, please don’t beat yourself up. Be kind and just laugh it off.
- Accept rather than resist
Be neutral. Be like Teflon and let what negativity or judgment that is coming your way, slide right past you. Don’t let it land with you.
- Forgive yourself
Forgive yourself for any transgression or neglect that has been displayed toward your Higher Self; I’m sorry for letting that land with me, or, I’m sorry for believing the illusion that it was mine, not theirs.
- Choose another perspective
Take action by choosing another perspective. If you let the negativity land with you, you are choosing to take it seriously and to engage with it. Instead, choose something else. Ask yourself; What do I choose to experience now? Or, I choose to remain happy, harmonious and grateful and I claim my freedom from other people’s emotional energy.
- Let it go
Release it by making it part of your past. Stay present. Be in faith and trust that you are a divine and infinite being. Each new moment is your chance to play and create something new.
- Be grateful
Be thankful for this experience. Thank you body for giving me more awareness. I am grateful for your loving assistance and guidance.
