Become the Master of Your Emotions by Focusing on Witness Consciousness

Some people are afraid of their emotions. Are you afraid of your emotions?

When people are afraid of their emotions, it is typically because they fear that the feelings will be too big for them to handle. They fear that the emotions will overwhelm them.

Focusing on Witness Consciousness can help you to become the master of your emotions. If a feeling arises that feels scary, say to yourself, “I am the Witness who is watching this emotion pass through my system.” You are not the emotion, but rather, the emotion is an energy that is passing through you.

I hope this post is helpful to you or to someone you love.

Are You the Witness Today?

Every moment we have a choice: get caught up in what’s happening, OR be the Witness of what’s happening.

Getting caught up can look like anxiety, fear, anger, shame, guilt, grief, jealousy, disappointment.

Being the Witness can look like Peace, Patience, Understanding, Acceptance, Gratitude, Compassion, Love, Happiness.

Are you the Witness today?

Parts Work for Difficult Emotions

Are you in regular communication with all of the different parts of yourself? Did you know that talking with your different parts can help you to navigate difficult emotions?

Parts Work means just what it says: working with your parts!

Parts Work is an effective technique for working with grief, anger, anxiety, fear, shame, jealousy, and any other difficult emotion. You pretty much just have conversations with all the different parts of you. So, you say, “Hey, angry part of myself, what’s going on? Why are you so angry?” And then you listen to the response before recognizing that the angry part is just one part of your wholeness. You then dialogue with a more positive, happy part to see how they are doing. I mean, why is that part still feeling so happy even though the other part is so angry?

Isn’t it so interesting and fascinating to examine how complex we are as feeling beings?

Parts Work helps to develop your strong inner coach, the one who can rally your parts into teams that support each other to work it all out. Parts Work also increases your Self-Love, because it helps you to understand all of your parts and to have compassion for them.

Have you experienced the healing benefits of working with your parts? Or are you new to this practice? Please share in the comments below, down where it says “Leave a Reply.”

Guided Imagery Exercise for Difficult Emotions

Are you dealing with any anxiety, fear, anger, or grief? If yes, this guided imagery exercise will help you to ride the waves of those difficult emotions until they shift or dissolve.

Sit or lie down in a quiet spot. Take a few relaxing breaths, and then begin. First, tune in and notice where you feel the emotion in your body. Second, ask yourself what that emotion feels like, looks like, and sounds like. What color is it? What texture? Is it heavy or light? What shape is it? Does it make a sound? And third, using your imagination, create a healing antidote, and notice what it feels like, looks like, and sounds like.

For example, let’s say you are feeling some anger passing through your system, and when you tune in, you feel it in your gut. It feels gripping, and you notice that it looks like heavy black tar with spikes. The shape reminds you of a panther’s head. There is a growling sound, as if it might jump out and bite you. So now create a healing antidote to this angry cat in your gut. You might imagine a warm glistening white light entering your belly and surrounding the black tar. This white light is soft and dreamy like floating clouds, yet it carries a strong healing energy. It settles down over the black image, and as it does so, you might notice that the black tar begins to shrink. Bathed in the healing energy of the white light, the anger begins to fade.

This exercise can be done repeatedly until the difficult emotion shifts or dissolves altogether. After you try this out, please come back here and share your experiences in the comments below, down where it says “Leave a Reply.”

To illustrate this exercise further, here is another example. I made up the first example, but the following one comes from my life. I am carrying a grief in my heart that is so deep I often wonder if it will ever heal. Recently while lying on the Amethyst Crystal Biomat, this guided imagery arose:

The grief in my heart is like sharp heavy stones covered with thick mud… and now a bright orange radiant light is entering my heart… it is like warm, smooth, orange stones… and fragrant orange flowers… and sparkling orange jewels… and glittering orange stars… and it is shining and glowing so bright like a warm healing fire… and day by day it is taking over my heart, so that little by little those sharp, heavy, muddy stones are falling out of my heart, down into the earth… down into the hot ball of iron at the center of the earth, where they are exploding and burning up in the hot iron… and, more and more I am healing in the radiant orange light that is spreading in my heart and throughout my whole being… and it is radiating out to all the beings in all the realms…. 

Can you feel it?
