Life is all about emotions.

How you feel determines what you do.

What you do determines your results or lack of results.

Here's the Problem.

We're not taught to feel emotions.

Socialization teaches how to escape emotions, especially the uncomfortable ones.

Life is all about emotions.

How you feel determines what you do.

What you do determines your results or lack of results.

Here's the Problem.

We're not taught to feel emotions.

Socialization teaches how to escape emotions, especially the uncomfortable ones.

Emotions are valuable INFORMATION.

 

People treat most emotions like kryptonite.

 

Which results in never using emotions as the SUPERPOWER they are.

img-heartwork-girl-stage1

Creating the results you want begins with emotional awareness.

 

Unfortunately, we aren't given a practical, effective emotional education in our modern world.

 

This is why most are not living life of fulfillment with the experiences, growth and contribution they want.

Discover What Emotions are Trying to Tell You.

Our Current Emotional Education.

We're socialized to do 4 main things with emotions:

1. RESIST.

resist emotions

People confuse resisting with feeling.

Resisting is like holding the door shut with all your strength.

Resisting emotion is the reason you feel exhausted much of the time.

2. REACT.

img_react

When you react by yelling, screaming, becoming defensive (like a porcupine) or crying, it may seem like feeling, but it's not.

Feeling doesn't look like acting in a dramatic play.

3. AVOID.

avoid emotion

Society has made avoiding feelings easy and socially acceptable.

The main numbing behaviors are overeating, overdrinking, overscrolling, overworking and isolating.

4. PRETEND.

pretending

You're taught that being happy is the goal of life.

Therefore, negative emotions mean either something has gone terribly wrong or there's something wrong with you.

 

You hide your emotions behind pretty masks in order to fit in, pretend you're "normal" and make others comfortable.

This illusion has grown dramatically due to the rise of social media.

Emotional Awareness is a SKILL you can learn to create the life you want.

Why simple doodles are SO effective.

Creativity and play is INCREDIBLY effective at creating lasting change.

It takes approximately 400 repetitions to create a new neural pathway in your brain.

With creativity and play it takes ONLY 10-20 repetitions.

Doodles bring extraordinary efficiency, gentleness and compassion to doing deep inner work.

It's not your fault.

Let's look at how this unintentional emotional education continues through the generations...

 

"Stop crying. You're too sensitive."

too sensitive

You learn it's not OK to feel, trust or express your true emotions.

"SHHH! Talking about money is rude. You should know better than that!"

money shame

You learn to suppress honest conversations about things like a convenient tool for exchanging value and many, many, many other topics.

"You hurt Billy's feelings. You need to apologize  now for hurting his feelings."

IMG_Billy-apology

You  learn that you're responsible for other people's emotions.

"Don't be shy! Aunt Helen wants a kiss."

IMG_Aunt3

You learn that other people's wants are more important than your own.

Something bad happened? "Let's get you ice cream so you'll feel better."

IMG_angry-cone

You learn to use false pleasures to avoid feeling negative emotion.

sketch-mark-right

Something good happened? "Let's get you ice cream to celebrate!"

img_happy-cone

You learn that feeling positive emotion isn't enough on it's own.

"Of course you should say 'yes'! You want them to think you're a nice person, right?"

IMG_juggle-final

You learn to people please instead of telling the truth.

You bring this socialized emotional mismanagement into adulthood.

 

Emotional mismanagement KILLS:

  • relationships
  • health
  • self-esteem
  • career / business
  • dreams / purpose
  • creativity - art, dance, photography, writing dreams
  • EVERYTHING you want

 

This current emotional education disconnects you from your natural, healthy emotional guidance.
