What is Emotional Awareness?
Emotional awareness is the ability to know which feeling you are experiencing and how to allow it to process through.
I would go as far as saying about 85 percent of our population is NOT in touch with their emotions, and why should they be? We do not learn this as a primary skill in traditional schooling.
We are not taught (before 10 years old) what the 8 main emotions are, how they feel and how to process them. So then, once we are in our teen age years we then experience up to 600 new emotions. And have no track record of how to know what we are feeling emotionally and how to process this big new load of awareness.
As we age we experience emotional maturity, but most do not have conscious awareness of this emotional language, so we circulate around the 5 main emotions and think everything falls into that category. For example, instead of knowing that we are experiencing rejection or betrayal, we just identify it as anger and get stuck there.
This is where we as a population are very emotionally immature.
But that can change!
I take all my students through an emotional vocabulary building exercise that helps them expand their vocabulary to around 60 emotions. Something happens in their mind after they list these emotions and find the opposite. Their emotional vocabulary expands and they are then able to properly identify what they are feeling.
Here is the exercise:
1. Identify the actual feeling
2. Feel the feeling without trying to change it for 90 seconds
3. Allow the emotional energy to move (cry, write, walk, move - this helps the energy move)
4. Set your focus now on what you want
5. Create an affirmation that helps you feel empowered around what you want.
Your feelings are the language of your soul. They carry wisdom about your belief systems, past wounds, deep desires and unique impressions you are meant to make.
This is why the healing work is so important. It's the healing that helps you deactivate triggers, less triggers, less vibrational tugging.
As you stabilize inside of you, less things can offend or move your needle.
And you really become the master of your mood! When you keep your vibration high, regardless of what is happening or who you are around with - you've conquered alignment. It means your emotions are vibrating above neutrality or higher. When you are in this space, it's difficult for things to knock you down.
I am confident that I have something that can help you in this healing work. If you look at traditional psychology, they will tell you what we are doing is impossible.
Yet we are witnessing deep healing and transformation in our certification program that blows us away. Whether you want to be a coach or not, the healing work connects you to the higher frequencies that are waiting to come through you!
