Emotions We all have them. Most of us try to manage them. But do we really understand them at all?
As a former ’emotional outburster’ and current person who is ‘highly emotional’, in this podcast, I get into the truth of what it can be like to feel and experience big emotions. Taking it from an energy informed perspective, I identify emotions as powerful messages from the soul. Sometimes warnings, others information sources about self and other, often keys to our own healing, our ‘feelings’ are an important part of the voice of our soul. You feel a lot? That is your soul talking. LISTEN!
As we discuss, the problem many of us experience with emotions is that we are taught to ignore and repress them. To judge self and other for having them. Guess what? That kind of repression can lead to explosions and lash outs. This in turn winds us into situations where one winds up destroying the very relationship, activity, or experience they were feeling so passionately about.
Have you been the person who threw a tantrum when you did not get your way? We all pretty much have been. So too have we hurt and been hurt by emotions and the ways they have been expressed (or not) by others. This is a no shame zone where we talk about why this happens and how to manage it. Nobody is perfect. We are all on this learning journey together. Let us be real about it, see ourselves for who we are, and keep it moving.
Tune in for a podcast that is all about doing just that.
Crow Medicine: Experiencing Powerful Emotions

As I say in the podcast, caring powerfully about something is a good sign. It only gets destructive when have not yet figured out how to discern the message in our emotions and to positively direct the energy they represent. Learning how to experience and appreciate them as that supports emotional intelligibility and personal energy management. This is something I care a lot about.

Though I did not speak about it in this podcast, another reason that we experience major emotions is that we are not grounding our energy.
