What are emotions?
Recently I shared a series about emotions and emotional addiction. And I never actually defined what emotions are, how they impact us and what to do with them.
Your thoughts create your reality in each moment - out of your awareness. Your perspective - how you interpret what you experience - forms your life.
Being vs doing. It's a choice you make in each moment - out of your awareness.
So many people feel trapped and overwhelmed when actually they are addicted to emotions. Addictions are not just about drugs or alcohol.
Two habits that keep you stuck operate out of your awareness. Okay, more than two, however these two totally prevent your moving forward in life. Until you replace these two habits you will never be healthy, happy, or successful in life.
Habits define futures until they don't. Until you become aware of the habits that keep you stuck, your life will continue to be crummy, disappointing and frustrating at best.
Holidays - what a hectic - and stressful - time of year! Sure you get the fun events - parties, dinners, time with friends and family. Ah, but the scheduling, the travel plans, and, oh my - buying all those gifts. You know, the gifts no one actually wants that may be used briefly then discarded.
Have you ever gone to a store the day after Christmas to return or exchange your gifts? I bet you only did that once and never faced that mob scene again.
All that tension tends to displace the merriment of the season, doesn't it? Well, especially if you are the host of the party or the main gift buyer for the family. Family. Hmm. IS that family gathering your biggest stressor?
And then there are all the people who do not have family or friends to share the celebrations. And those who do not celebrate any holidays at this time.
While that may not be in the case in the USA, in the rest of the world the story is quite different. Ah, but, surprisingly, even with all the extravagant spending int he USA, all those dollars pale in comparison to what people spend around the world.
I know. Hard to imagine, isn't it?
Today I want you to remember that no matter how stressful or exhausted you feel right now, no matter how alone you sense yourself to be in making all these decisions, purchases, and plans, the fact is you are never ever alone.
In every moment of every day you are held with Love in Light. Seriously - you are never alone. Nor are you ever subjected to life experiences without your greater good in mind.
"What the heck? So why do I feel so pressured, so stuck, and so unhappy?"you ask.
Reset your mind to match who you really want to be, do and have. Life does not begin at birth. Who you are starts in utero. When you emerge into the world you already have a personality - and a whole lot more than you think.
Seeing is believing?
The way you see your world, yourself and the people and events in it, has nothing to do with what you perceive with your eyes.
