Emotions and energy

 

A few things I notice about emotions and energy….

There is a great deal of energy in emotions, including the ones that initially may appear less energetic. 

When emotions are made into “other”, the energy in them appears as “other” as well. And this otherness can take a few different forms. 

I try to push away an emotion, and it may appear to push back. I push, it doesn’t go away, so it appears to push back and intrude when I least want it.

I may habitually push away a particular emotion and exclude it from my conscious identity, so its energy is habitually locked away as well. (This may lead to an experience of fatigue.) 

I try to hold onto an emotion, and its energy is used in a slightly manic or compulsive way. 

Or I may allow the emotion as is, in a heartfelt way and with kindness, and find that its energy is available in a more relaxed way.

Initial outline…

emotions and energy

  • a great deal of energy in emotions
  • if made into “other” and try to push away/hold on, then the energy remains “other” as well (either locked away, or used in a slightly manic/compulsive way)
  • if allow as is, energy available in a more relaxed way
When they are made into “other” and I try to push away or hold on to them, the energy in them remains “other” as well. It may be locked away, for instance when I habitually push a particular emotion away and exclude it from my conscious identity. It may appear as pushing back. Or it may be used in a slightly manic or compulsive way, when try to hold on to them.
