Chapter 11 – Using Emotions to Reclaim Your Power
All emotions are beautiful things. Some may feel more beautiful than others but they are all an indication that you are human, you have needs and you may have issues that need to be resolved. Emotions if used well will help you to find these resolutions. They are like a compass that can show you when to stop, when to turn and when to keep going.
At times when we have a strong emotion we can locate the tension that we are feeling from that emotion in the part of our body where we are said to be holding that emotion.
Where we hold emotions in our bodies
Rumplestiltskin turned the thread into gold for her. In return said that he would take her first born child unless she could guess his name. Now clearly Rumplstiltskin is not an easy name to guess. Desperate not to loose her child, the girl followed Rumplestiltskin to where he lived in the forest. There she heard him say his name as he danced around celebrating his anticipated gain.
The name of our emotions can be difficult to find. And like Rumplestiltskin whilst remaining un-named they can have power over us.
All of the processes that we have covered so far lead show how identifying our emotions is an important process. When we can see them for what they are we can begin to reclaim our power.
