How it Works
The connection between our heart and our mind is often overlooked
Our thoughts impact our emotions and our emotions impact our thoughts in an intricate dance that is constantly taking place. Being able to identify and sit with emotions, even those emotions we may be uncomfortable with offers the opportunity to see that our emotions are part of our experience however do not have to define us.
Our thoughts are the partner to our emotions. Our thoughts whether helpful or unhelpful have a profound impact on our emotions and actions. Practicing identifying our thoughts and labeling them as helpful or unhelpful can support us in making decisions and acting in a way that is in alignment with our authentic self.
When we experience overwhelm and we seek to find control, bringing our awareness to the present can help bring control back to us. It is like a ship in a storm. We cannot control the storm however we can drop an anchor down and stabilize our ship amongst the storm.
