Many of you are leery to feel your emotions. You may be feeling overwhelmed by the intensity of the times you are in, or think it will be too much on top of your energetic sensitivities. But resisting your emotions is a great disservice, first because they have a wealth of information for you, and second because by resisting them you actually amplify them and your discomfort because you are practicing separation within yourself.
If you have an emotion coming up, allow yourself to feel into it as your own loving parent and guide. What is this emotion? Why is it coming up? How is it trying to help you? As you start to acknowledge the emotion and flow with it, you may very well be surprised that it starts to settle. Now that it has your attention it doesn’t need to be as loud.
Let us give you an example. Let’s suppose you start to feel very uncomfortable. Feel into that. What would you call it? You might identify it as anxiety. Wonderful! You can now consciously connect with it. Your conversation might look something like this:
“Hello, anxiety. What’s going on? Why are you triggered? What do you need from me? What are you trying to tell me? How can I comfort you? Are you afraid? That’s ok, come here and let me hug you. I realize you are just trying to keep me safe, but allow me to do that for you. I’m so grateful you came up into my awareness so we can have this experience together in a new way. Thank you for loving me and for looking out for me! I’ve got this now. Let me just sit with you until you can settle back into a more comfortable state of being.”
Your emotions are great assets. They are trying to assist you, to alert you to parts of yourself that are seeking your own love and care. They are also wonderful connectors and expanders of your experience. They are like little helper guides within you. So explore your feelings, acknowledge and identify them, receive their guidance, and then thank them for their service. You may be surprised to see how much lighter you feel and how much smoother your flow is once you have learned to embrace them and their gifts. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
Shelley’s note: Please remember I will taking time off in March, so if you have been thinking you’d like to have a private session with me soon, now would be the time to book. Thanks!
