Are you too sensitive? Have you struggled your whole life not to feel so deeply, to hide your emotions more effectively, not to act out emotionally?
What if I were to tell you that your sensitive, emotional nature is actually your super power?
It is my belief that your emotions and your body are how your spirit speaks to your mind. When we can quiet our minds and feel our feelings and sense what is going on inside our physical, mental and emotional bodies we have access to all of the data that influences our reality and can make better decisions.
When we exclude huge amounts of data that come to us through our feelings in order to make more rational decisions, we are leaving our happiness and emotional well being out of our life and relationships.
This is how so many people end up having created a beautiful life that they don't fit in and just want to escape. You may not have to throw it all away, but rather begin to make room for your feelings.
It is not healthy to silence and control your feelings but rather listen to them, balance the desires of the heart AND the mind so that you can USE YOUR EMOTIONS powerfully and productively in your life.
Just as you need your rational mind, you need your emotional intelligence. The great challenge before you is to listen to them both and work to find the balance that makes both parts of you happy, healthy and comfortable in your life.
