23. FLASH. How to transform an emotion.
In the previous episode, I talked about emotions.
Being highly emotional is exhausting !! But it becomes a gift if conveyed with awareness and maturity. It becomes precious, for example, by working at others' service because you are more empathic, able to feel in tune with people, transforming communication into something profound, immediate, and creating a nourishing exchange for both.
Sometimes, however, while trying to stay centered, we feel overwhelmed by an emotion or a fact that comes between head and neck. The intensity with which we perceive it distracts us from centering and presence.
Personally, then I close my eyes, take a deep breath and listen. I connect with my intuition because it shows me a way to express that emotion. Often the first thing that comes to your mind is the good one: an idea, an image, or a feeling.
This practice is healthy and creative. I don't have to create a masterpiece. My masterpiece will already express the emotion between me and me in my room, rather than throwing it up on someone!
I may want to shake and dance. Or make simple gestures such as opening the window, breathing deeply, oxygenating, changing my mood and energy, or placing a hand on my heart and feeling its warmth, its delicate touch. Or maybe take a nice run around the neighborhood or mess with colors or cook a delicious lunch.
And there some people who can write a beautiful song to express their broken hearts.
