Alternative Medicine: Emotional Body

Some may say we are living under turbulent times. As a collective human species, we’re constantly separated by man. The color of our skin, religion, perspective and social status seems to be the cause of separation and much inflicted emotional stress.

Every emotion our body experiences is a natural and instinctive state of mind that derives from one’s circumstances, mood and relationship with others. The Emotional Body is the bioplastic vehicle in which said emotions are experienced and expressed by the body. (Reference: “The human energy field”.)

Today let’s focus on maintaining our emotional coolness. Imagine being the eye of the hurricane during a chaotic hurricane. Seems almost impossible, right? Not really! All we need to do is calm the emotional body prior to speaking, typing and acting out. You will find the following exercise valuable in the sense that it will provide you with an opportunity to clear the emotions. Making decisions from a calm and collective stance and NOT an emotionally laced attitude is priceless tremendously productive.

Practice time! When situations that do not align to your ideals pop up, practice the following follow: 

-    Stop!
-    Focus on your breathing. Inhale gently and exhale gently. 
-    Slowly count to 4. Each repetition slower and in tune with your breathing.
-    Remind yourself that we are all uniquely different and in the process of evolving. 
-    Do this as many times as needed until clarity comes in.
