Every moment in life something new arrives for us via our emotional vibrational match or something totally out of our control.
We all know human nature is packed with emotions that can make or break a day, a moment and even a life. Emotions can come so unexpected; they can show up without our permission and bring, joy, happiness, sadness, and anger.
Emotions are vibing all around us laying in wait to take over and guide us.
When emotions comes a knockin at your interior door, invite them in and entertain them all, treat each moment and emotion as a guest with respect.
Imagine having a party with shame, hopelessness, helplessness, anger, guilt, fear and feeling powerlessness. Instead of avoiding those emotions because you don’t like the way they make you feel, approach them with compassion and understanding, after all, they came to your party to mingle and get to know you. It is when we resist those unwanted aspects of ourselves that the gap within begins to take us away from who we are.
We are all aware it is easy to love those emotions that make us feel expansive, right and on top of our game, and why not, we experience a big inward smile, an unexplainable high. We feel strong, powerful and that anything is possible at that moment.
We are still in the throws of ‘what or why’ we came to be in this human form, but the one thing we all know, we FEEL it all, the wind, the sun, the temperatures of life. We are also aware that we embrace, and reject our likes and dislikes about ourselves and our world around us. We think we are in control.
What does it all mean?
Maybe we came here to be grateful for whatever or whoever comes knocking on our hearts, perhaps they are private guides, guiding us to the sweet spot of this life; FREEDOM to cross ALL bridges and close the gaps that cause ‘separation’ from self and the world.
We want to close the gaps that cause us disharmony and bridge the ones that fill us with joy, peace, and love, without disregarding the shadow.
We can be habitual with our shadow emotions that cause us to struggle and suffer in shame and guilt for how we are. Imagine being in the habit of being aware of feelings, understand that they might be necessary for our evolution, then we can own those parts of ourselves that we would rather leave at the front door when the emotions come a-knockin to party with us.
Our power is in our shadow because that darkness will seek the light, will find comfort and joy, will strive to feel better. If you are comfortable with and have no judgment about these obscurities, then they can’t control you. We always want to know what is next, how it will look to give the ego a boost of comfort, but we can never know what is coming. That is why owning, accepting and integrating ALL our emotions is the only way to ease and release suffering, to bridge the gaps in life, to allow the tides of life wash over you without letting it stick.
Remember, if you don’t adapt to your emotions, they will run you over. Learning to embrace your emotional terrain makes you the perfect host. Allow life to unfold with kindness and a curiosity that teaches you that love is everywhere, but more importantly, love is YOU. ❤ Dolby Dubrow
