Good morning! 💜
It feels like there are a lot of heavy emotions swirling around right now, and I'd like to discuss how you can honor your feelings when it doesn't feel like life is working out for you.
Last week I talked about how, no matter what you're going through, all is well.
That's all well and good, but what if it doesn't feel like all is well?
What if your current circumstances feel far from well?
What if you can't sleep because you're so worried about what's happening in your life?
Or what if you're just really frustrated about where life has you right now?
It's important to not gloss over your feelings in an attempt to find the silver lining in every situation.
Your feelings are incredibly valuable at guiding you along the path of your greatest joy even if your current emotions feel far from joyful.
If you put a lid on them, they're going to keep steaming and boiling below the surface until your pot explodes.
In those moments when you're feeling anything less than content and happy with your life, I encourage you to welcome your uncomfortable emotions.
"Sadness/anger/fear/bitterness/guilt/embarrassment/anxiety, I welcome you here. I open my heart and allow you to bubble up inside me. I am willing to feel you fully knowing that you have an important message for me. You are showing me an area where I can love myself more and where I can make changes if I'm ready for that. Thank you for being here. 💜"
Pain and illness arrive when we don't take the time to honor our feelings and listen to what they're trying to tell us.
It might be uncomfortable to grieve something when it's time to let go or to allow yourself to feel the fear that you have about the future, but those feelings will usually pass more quickly if you welcome them without resistance.
It's the resistance that hurts your heart the most- not the feelings.
See your emotions as the gifts that they are.
Honor your feelings while also knowing deep down that all is well.
What do you need to allow yourself to feel today?
I invite you to give yourself space to feel it fully.
Let it all out (in a way that is safe for you and others if the emotion happens to be anger or rage).
Journal about it or talk it out with someone if that helps you process what you're feeling.
You don't have to hold it inside any longer.
All of life will be there to wrap you in a big hug as you honor your feelings and give yourself the gift of release.
So much love to you,
