Emotions

Emotion is no longer a dirty word

When I tell some people that we perceive and communicate emotionally and then give logical reasons for it, they are quick to deny it. However, salespeople know this to be true. Emotion is no longer a dirty word.

They learn that people buy for emotional reasons and then rationalize the purchase. Showing someone why he or she needs the item or service will not get you as far as showing him or her why he or she wants it.

The same semantics’ happen with perceptions and communication. When we look at the physiology of perceptions, we learn that our clearest memories are ones that have an emotional context to it.

The is a reason. Anything that is highly emotional will come through the amygdala in our brain. Whether it is from fear or love, anxiety or excitement.

Other sensory information will come directly from the brain stem to the hippocampus. And a more select version will come from the cortex.

So whether it was a happy memory (weddings, special vacation, birth of a child), or a sad memory (death, injury), we hold clear details of what we were doing at the time.

Many people fight hearing this because “emotional” was considered a dirty word for a long time. This group still relates to the old meaning. To them it is about being out of control, or even weak and unstable.

Emotion, the new definition

Most people are coming around and seeing it in a new light and as a word that can help them. Those who follow Meta or Quantum physics understand the importance of this word.

How it is part of the secret, which many successful people are using to acquire what they want in life.

We are taught that clear thought and communication with ourselves, combined with feeling or strong emotional desire, is the path to achieving our dreams and desires.

That everything starts with a thought and then the feeling or the emotion brings it into fruition. It is the half of the equation that many people are missing due to their dislike of the word.

But what if you looked at emotion in a new light? What if you saw it as your strength? And what if you saw it as a tool for all you wish to achieve?

Form new beliefs

Once you dissolve your old beliefs, you will need to form new beliefs to take their place. Usually this means replacing limiting beliefs with empowering ones.

This is a process all its own, and it will take time to fully reinforce the new beliefs in your mind and heart. A helpful activity is to write out the old beliefs. Then write your new and usually opposite beliefs right next to them.

Example: Old belief, “I am not worthy of love.” New belief, “I am worthy of love. I deserve to be loved.”

Then simply keep reinforcing these new beliefs until they become a strong part of your foundation.

Begin rebuilding

This is the fun part! It can be a bit confusing, however. What do we build? And how? Especially if the destruction process was particularly painful and life altering, we may feel at a loss about where to begin again. And the answer is: let your heart lead you.

Think about what you really want your life to be, and then begin taking the steps to create it. That might involve getting an exciting new job, or moving to a new location, or building new relationships.

The important thing is to be sure that your old beliefs have been replaced by new, empowering ones. Otherwise you will simply re-create circumstances that don’t serve you.

You will eventually have to go through the destruction process all over again! Listen closely to the urging of your heart, and use them to guide you along the path to a better life.

This isn’t an easy process by any means

But it is oh so fulfilling and exhilarating if we embrace it and allow it to happen without fighting against the pain and fear.

Through our trials and challenges come new levels of growth, wisdom, and inner strength beyond our wildest dreams. We just need to stay with the process and watch for the rainbows after the storm.
