How I’ve learnt to ride the Wave. Pt. 13 Start to become Aware!
WOW what a day its been. Many long hours on the computer and still going. Lucky I am passionate about what I am doing on it. Having no boss and being personally responsible for myself is such a blessing.
This week I am continuing with my notes about my basic steps and tools to “Ride the Waves” in my life. What I write is my truth, so it doesn’t need to be yours. This is what you need to discover for yourself. I am simply offering some of my knowledge which you may choose to test and implement as part of your own system.
Today I will talk briefly about some ways we create more drama and suffering in our lives by losing control of our emotions or limiting our perspective. As I’ve said before, emotions are extremely powerful. In some circumstances the momentum which is created serves us well and pushes us forward. However, in many instances quite the opposite happens. It holds us back, keeps us stuck and we go around in circles wondering why things are not improving. It can be a vicious cycle. In general, most people would rather not have the extra drama, yet out of habit, the autopilot button switches on and away you go. Something happens which triggers you and you are off and racing. Can you relate?
Having a limited perspective can also play a big part. When you are so stuck in your way of thinking, speaking and acting, with no flexibility or willingness to embrace something new, you cannot see the bigger picture of events taking place. This can create not only small mindedness and a base for judgement and criticism to thrive, but it also holds you back from greater life experiences. Opportunities for personal expansion. Maybe this is you? Or maybe you recognize this in people you know?
For many of us, these team up together. We lose control of our emotions, which can be a result of our limited perspective or vice versa.
For example, when it came to losing emotional control, I was a shocker! I use to play out the same scenarios many times, just with different actors and scenery. At first I wasn’t aware of what I was doing, I couldn’t see the patterns or cycles I had created and wondered why nothing really changed. Then when I became aware, I hadn’t discovered the tools to support the change and at times it was brutally challenging, beating myself up by belittling myself. Telling myself how could I have been so dumb, naive, rude, trusting etc. Or I would try denial and still blame something or someone external. I would lose my emotional control (which means not keeping myself in a balanced state) and due to my limited perspective, created more drama in my head and heart. Stress and pressure on myself and others resulted.
This was until I realized there wasn’t anything I could have done differently because I didn’t know how to do it differently. Once this concept finally sunk in, it was like a weight shifted. You see, no matter what events have taken place in your life. You made a choice at the time and that’s the end of it. You cannot go back and change it if later you didn’t like it, you just have to accept it and move on (yes easier said than done, I know).
What also comes with this is the understanding that if some of the choices I made were not in my best interest or of benefit to others, yet I didn’t know better. Then this concept also applies to everyone else. No matter what it is, whether you agree with it or not. It has been their choice to make it. We lose our personal power when we get involved or over involved in other people’s lives.
We have all done things which other people don’t like, as others have done and still do things we don’t like. This is the nature of life. The task is to find the tools to support you personally in maintaining your inner balance regardless of life events which take place.
As I have mentioned in my previous notes. When emotions are triggered by events or just randomly arise, what I find works for me is to ACKNOWLEDGE and ACCEPT them IN THE MOMENTS they are happening. As quickly as I can catch myself in them, I practice this step. I remind myself of IMPERMANENCE, I do my best to not let them control me by focusing on them (or pushing them down and ignoring them) or judge them. Lastly I do whatever I can to bring myself up, even if it’s just a small step by implementing tools for self-love and self-care until I regain my composure, my natural state of balance.
Through these stages I have learnt to take personal responsibility for how I wish to create the experience to follow. I have empowered myself to create a shift, a new possible outcome from what my outdated pattern or program was. I can now CHOOSE to RESPOND or simply ALLOW myself to REACT in the way I use to. Either way, I am solely responsible for the result.
Now I know many emotions come up to clear out of our systems which are not pleasant, I am not an exception to this. Yet I have learnt how essential it is to continually remind myself it will not last forever. This can be challenging, especially when you are in the depths of despair, when it can seem like your darkest hour, yet the fact is, nothing remains the same. So no matter how low you may go, continually remind yourself. Do what you can to reassure yourself it will not last. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
You see. When you start to become aware of your emotions and how they impact your life, you can then start to evaluate for yourself if they are truly helping or hindering you. If it’s the latter, then you need to find a way to change because you deserve a blissful life no matter what comes your way. We ALL have a CHOICE. The power is with YOU! What experiences will YOU decide to create?
My task for you this week is to practice catching your emotions. To simply start becoming aware of them. Nothing else. Just notice them.
