Dealing with emotions: how I learned to work through them


Your emotions are a powerful channel of inner wisdom.


Of course, most of us haven’t been taught how to deal with our emotions effectively and don't realise their importance.


We’ve come to believe that they need to be controlled, i.e. suppressed. That it’s wrong to feel certain emotions.


We’ve become accustomed to narratives that pit thinking and feeling against each other.


And so, when difficult emotions surface, we try to bury them and shut them off - attempting to ignore the fact that these emotions are still there, bubbling away under the surface.


Or we try to address these feelings with thinking solutions, like mindset work.


Then on the other hand, we can find ourselves overwhelmed by the strength of emotions we haven’t processed.


I know what this feels like, because I’ve found myself in each of these scenarios. I used bury and try to shut off difficult emotions, telling myself it was the rational, strong thing to do. Only to find myself consumed by feelings I hadn’t worked through later on.


But emotions are a natural - and vital - part of being human.


As I opened up to accepting this truth, I began to understand just how powerful our emotions are as a channel of inner wisdom: they bring us clarity in situations, communicate intuitive guidance, and help us to see what we're dealing with at a subconscious level.


So I learned how to work with them instead of against them. I learned to actually be present to them and let myself feel them more fully.


And the results were truly transformational:

  • I was able to understand myself with a deeper self-compassion and an acceptance of the whole of me.

  • I found the ability to flow with emotional waves much more effectively, and be present to them without judgement.

  • My willingness and ability to deal with more difficult emotions led me to more inner peace every single time. Which helped me to become more and more grounded in the present, regardless of external circumstances.

  • I started to recognise and listen to the inner, intuitive guidance that my emotions were often trying to show me.

But getting here wasn’t easy.


Through ups and downs that supported me to embody these lessons deeply, I trained, studied, and applied various tools and healing modalities to help myself and others.


And I’ve brought together what I’ve found most effective in tools such as mindfulness of emotions, shadow work and inner child healing, along with a deep understanding of how the subconscious mind works, to help others better understand and process their emotions too.
