One of the most challenging aspects of self-coaching for me is learning to get in touch with my emotions. Not just labeling them but – ACK! – feeling them. Like with my body and stuff!
I see the benefits of this touchy-feely feeling practice now. As a result, I consistently practice feeling my emotions.
This increases my general awareness of my feelings.
One emotion that has been popping up with more regularity is…
Gross! I do not want to be a jealous person. At this stage of life, I am what I am, I love myself, and I am full of expansive love for other people. Truly, I feel in a nirvana enlightened state a fairly high percentage of the time.
So…jealousy? It’s at all kinds of things, a pretty outfit or someone’s financial fortune.
And then, finally, my coach mind caught up to my Observer mind and I had an epiphany:
The jealousy was not wanting what person X had for myself.
It is an indication of my increasing self-awareness of my general desire.
I want things. After years of feeling anxious about, um, everything, it’s so encouraging to be a thought away from so many beautiful wishes. It’s a 180 degree shift from feeling overwhelmed.
Are there emotions surprising you lately? What are your heart and mind trying to bring to your attention? Be curious and see what beautiful lessons await.
