Emotional Freedom Begins With You

Emotional freedom comes from repeatedly choosing to observe our emotions and thoughts objectively; as a witness would. Otherwise, our thoughts and emotions rule us or we attempt to rule and suppress them (and then they eventually pop up again, either in obvious or secretive ways).

The phrase ‘repeatedly choosing’ is also important here. Just as we require routine activities to keep our homes and bodies in order, our emotional landscape requires continual upkeep. Also, it is our will to do the work or to ignore it and allow the emotional or thought “weeds” to grow; hence our need to choose.

It is when we decide that the pain of holding on is greater than the fear of letting go that we can grow; when we can allow life and healing to truly unfold. It is our will that keeps us from letting go. When we hold onto what has past, we cannot open our hands to allow the present to fully unfold. 

In these ways, emotional freedom is ours to choose. Witness what you think, what you feel, as if you were watching a movie. You will find that the more you practice this, the easier it becomes to detach and move forward into acceptance, into allowing and recognizing the impermanence of what we think, feel and even do. These are the keys to emotional freedom.

Namaste

PS Fear not! You will still have emotions! They just will cease to consume, overwhelm and “control” you.

  1. This resonates deeply with me Tiffany. Detaching from what I’m feeling and learning to just observe is something I’m constantly trying to do. It’s funny how these thoughts creep up on us. Another enlightening post. xo

    1. Loving that you found resonance here! ❤️
      It is amazing how those thoughts creep in. The more I see it as housekeeping, or like a video game, the less attached I become to the idea of “I thought I took care of that already.” Sometimes when we clean up the stains, we see how the surrounding floor was also needing a cleaning 😉🤔
      Much love and light!
