Any emotion, if it is sincere, is involuntary – Mark Twain

A friend of mind often shys away from anything emotional with the comment ‘Ooh that’s an emotional response, I am not dealing with that!’. I always smile and stay silent, but I have some thoughts to share on the emotional front and they may strike a chord with some of you.

We are emotional, spiritual beings living in a physical world and therein lies a dilemma for all of us. If we deny our emotions and always focus on the practical, then we are storing up a whole heap of trouble for ourselves. When you deny anything repeatedly, it builds and rises up at inopportune moments and not in a way that we can usually control. By focusing on the practical ‘to do’ aspect of life, then your emotions are not acknowledged and they have a way of paying you back when ignored!

I am not for a minute suggesting that you go around ‘splurging’ your feelings out on all and sundry, but a quiet acknowledgment to yourself on how you feel is a healthy thing to do. Also, at times when you feel overwhelmed emotionally then turning to a trusted loved one who will listen and help you make sense of what’s going on is also a blessed relief.

By listening to emotions our heart gets to offer guidance in it’s purest form and this in turn settles emotions in your system because they are being acknowledged. Couple your emotions with wisdom from past events and life lessons learnt, then your instinct will come into it’s own.

Everything in your system needs balance and harmony and your emotions are an important part of you.
