It may sometimes be awkward to set healthy boundaries with negative or draining people, but it is an important skill to learn. If someone has unrealistic expectations of you or unable to respect your feelings remember “No” is a complete sentence.
Many of you may be feeling like the ball in a pinball machine in recent days (and ongoing). If it's not your own emotions being stirred and shaken, you may be feeling the whitewash of someone else's 'waves'.
One of the things I’ve noticed as a pattern for people in the last few weeks is lots of people are having compression around finance. Finance and money worries are usually rooted in 'survival', in terms of the emotion.
Whatever aspects and emotions of ourselves that we put 'on ice' because we didn't know at the time how to adequately deal with them are now on thaw mode, melting, melting. And when I say now, I'm meaning specifically now, today, tonight, this week, and tomorrow with the energy of this very powerful (is there any other kind?) Lunar Eclipse!
Emotions can come at you hard and fast. You must be prepared. In a flash, negativity can spin you into a tizzy, your center blown to smithereens. Not to worry. Here are some strategies for dealing with every angle of emotions--cerebral and intuitive, from earth to heaven.
You are a relay system of information. Your physical body is a manifestation of the environment in which it resides, and that extends beyond the visible. You are constantly interacting with your environment, from the obvious survival aspects like breathing and eating, to the invisible emotional aspects.
I am heartbroken and devastated because my boyfriend of seven years left me for another woman. I thought we were doing well and we had even talked about marriage and were making some long term plans. Now he’s with someone else and I don’t know what to do. I am so confused because we connected so well and I thought this was meant to be. What happened?
I have been involved in a relationship for ten years. What started out as a loving, supporting partnership has changed in the last two years. My partner is often mean, critical and not supportive. He has not been working for the last two years and I support the household. Recently I was offered a new job that means a geographic move and my partner does not want to go with me.
Finding yourself crying over the nightly news lately? Feeling the grief and heartache of people you don't even know? Feeling outraged when you hear of someone being abused or bullied or treated disrespectfully (or feeling outraged like never before if these things are happening to you)?
Emotional freedom means learning how to stay centered in a stressful, highly emotionally charged world. Since emotions such as fear, anger, and frustration are energies, you can potentially “catch” them from people without realizing it. If you tend to be an emotional sponge, it’s vital to know how to avoid taking on an individual’s negative emotions or the free-floating kind in crowds.
Any mother intuitively knows that her children need love. Now, a wealth of scientific evidence is shining light on why this is so. The Budapest Early Intervention Project (BEIP), a project that examined the health and development of children in Romanian orphanages, found startling evidence that when infants and children are starved of love and affection, their bodies do not grow as they should.
Perhaps you have experienced the loss of someone close to you or even part of your body. Following the loss, you probably allowed yourself the accepted brief respite and then expected your being to bounce back to “normal” full speed ahead. Your current loss is deeper than has been true in the past. In truth, you are experiencing loss on so many levels that bereavement is almost a constant, but unacknowledged companion.
