Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded that it is more than okay for you to feel and experience your feelings, all of your feelings.
They may overwhelm you, they make other people feel uncomfortable, but they are your feelings to feel and you are allowed to feel them, no matter how big they are.
Allow yourself to feel your feelings and let go of any story or belief that you have about experiencing them.
No feeling is wrong or bad.
Some are more fun to experience, and others may be more uncomfortable for you.
Feelings allow you to process what’s going on in your life.
They are signposts that show you what’s working and what’s not.
They allow you to release, they indicate to you that things may need to change.
You are not wrong, weak, shallow or high-maintenance for having feelings.
Having feelings just reminds you that you are in fact a human.
Use your feelings as a guide to show you what you need more of and what needs to change.
In this very moment, just pause and take a breath, as give yourself permission to feel your feelings.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to honour your feelings.
What feelings have you been bottling up.
How can you express them in a healthy way?
Talk about them, cry, laugh, dance and move them through your body, write about them, draw them, share them.
Ask your feelings how they want to be expressed and if it feels safe to you, honour that.
Pause, and take a breath. As you acknowledge and honour your feelings.
“I honour my feelings”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy expressing yourself as you walk Your SHEro’s Journey!
Being able to express emotions is a crucial skill for everyone, it creates healthy people, relationships and connections.
It’s often assumed that women are better at expressing their emotions, but it’s not because they are, it’s because they have permission to express some emotions in public, and by ‘some’ I mean a few more than men.
But this expression is only acceptable, as long as they’re not emotions that cause others to feel too uncomfortable.
Love and sympathy are acceptable.
But despair, rage or panic not so much so.
These stronger emotions expressed by women are more likely to be met with a ‘calm down’ or dismissed as ‘that time of the month’.
You don’t need anyone to validate how you feel, or give you permission to feel your feelings.
Honour how you feel, even if you’re not really sure how you feel or if it’s uncomfortable for you.
Never judge yourself for having a feeling, telling yourself you ‘shouldn’t’ feel a particular way is not helpful at all.
Witness your feelings and express them in a way that feels good to you.
Learn the messages from your emotions, they can help you to avoid danger, they can move you to take action, they can support you to make decisions in your life, and they can help you to connect with and understand other people on a deeper level.
Emotions really are your superpowers, it’s time to listen to them and stop suppressing them.
