Emotional pain and suffering gets our attention. While we may do a good job with emotions from others, outside my front door, the ones who live with us are still our best teachers (have the potential to cause pain). We must realize that it isn't them causing it, not really... it just appears like that.
It's 100% us, our thoughts and beliefs reacting to feelings. When we are triggered by negative emotions it really all boil down to one emotion... fear. In the experience of fear we spin a story and accept it as reality. Is it? No, but as long as we accept it as true, the universe strives to validate it.
What can we do? We continue to do our inner work, remembering that thoughts and beliefs create a story line, and that emotion fuels it.
Remember that we are wearing the costume of human, but that we are not, We are divinity having a human experience in this earthly play we write and star in. So if we don't like it, if we are in fear and causing ourselves pain and suffering... then it's time for us to rewrite the story.
We can acknowledge the thoughts, beliefs and feelings we are holding and change our position from victim to empowered self.
Empowered self is aware of the truth.... it's only a story we are choosing to create and at its end we will bow and leave the stage and return to full divinity. The question is what story do you want to tell while we are starring as human? Do we continue to choose fear and cause pain and suffering? Can we adjust our position and live from love just as easily?
What story are you telling? Here are some action steps to change it.
How sure am I that this is true?
Can I support it through facts or is it only my perception?
If I changed my position from absolutely sure to a more objective viewpoint, how would I feel?
If I let go and released this belief how would I be freed?
Sensitive people are even more challenged. We feel our feelings and also of those around us. How do we know if this is part of our story or someone else's? The moment it is claimed as ours it becomes part of our energy field and our story. How can we increase our awareness? When experiencing emotion pause a moment. What are we thinking? Does it create this emotion as a result? If not consider it a temporary emotional wave from outside of self. It rolls in and if we don't attach to it and claim it, (which starts spinning the story) it rolls right on out. This exercise takes practise, and it will teach us to observe our thoughts and become more conscious of what we choose to believe about ourselves. Remember emotion + thought = belief which creates our energetic frequency (story) and that is what we attract. The universe will validate the story we tell, so let's choose consciously.
