Letting go of toxic emotions is something that is very transformative. Often times we don’t even know we are carrying these feelings around with us. They reflect how we function in life; with our partner, our friends, our family, and society in general. I am huge on seeking wisdom in life so whenever I have a problem, I seek out an expert. As a life coach I help my clients confront these trapped emotions and release them once and for all. Life coaching can come from many people that surround you. A friend or family member, a therapist, or your spiritual leader. Some of us have special gifts to connect deeper and some of us have been trained in this field. Hopefully you find someone to assist you in this journey. Whatever you decide, remember, you must walk through the fire to get to the other side. There is no avoiding it.
Walking through the fire seems almost insurmountable at times, but it is the only way. You can sit in the fire forever or walk through it and transform. For me I am constantly taking inventory of my emotions and journaling them. This allows me to not only have a record of where my head is at, but also to work through my thoughts and emotions to discover where I need help and what I need to work on the most. While coaching my clients I am able to sense their own emotions, sometimes even before they do. See we don’t always know how to pay attention to ourselves. We live in our head so much that we never really slow down and observe what is going on inside of ourselves. Calming the chatter of our brain is the quickest and easiest way to do this. It all starts with getting quiet and being away from distraction.
As a life coach, I face this challenge every time I acquire a new client. I am not usually the guy you call when everything is going great. I am the guy you call when life is not what you dreamed it would be, and you’re ready to make a change. Most of the time the catalyst for this is you feel stuck. Let’s face it, I am here to solve a problem, or for that matter, a plethora of problems. Life coaching is about getting results and helping others find peace and happiness in their lives. As I always say, seek wisdom. Finding a coach, mentor, or guide, is the smartest thing you can do. I look for experts whenever I am tackling something, I am unfamiliar with.
We are living in a world that is new to society in general. The external information and constant influx of stimuli is beyond overwhelming. We never ever catch a break from it. Not even for a moment it seems. From our phones, to our computers, to digital billboards and TV’s, to the busy schedules we keep in our lives. We must slow down and unplug if we ever desire to be still and hear our true inner voice that is whispering to us every day. There are multiple ways to do this and I like to use all of them. Getting out in nature, meditating, prayer, a spiritual guide, and a spiritual practice. I believe we are all spiritual beings having a human experience. We get so caught up in the world that we forget to tend to who and what we really are.
Once we start working on ourselves through these avenues, we are able to start observing how we function and how we are being affected by these emotions that we never really noticed before. They start during our formative stages. We collect energy and vibes from our parents from the moment of conception. As we go throughout life, we start creating a collection. Our parents and most people around us never knew how to deal with this baggage, so how would we. We cope by numbing ourselves with substances, complete avoidance, and the most common one, distraction. As a life coach I encourage you to start listening to your inner voice. Start paying attention and observing what your body and your soul is telling you. Start observing from a distance how your mind aimlessly chatters.
We are full of toxic emotions, they just keep piling up as we go throughout life. It’s time to remove the baggage and take out the trash. I implore you to get still and hear God, hear your spirit, hear yourself. Go out and get help. Whether that is a life coach, your pastor at church, a therapist, or a spiritual leader in Peru. Make it a priority to cleanse yourself and set yourself free from the negativity, the self-doubt, and the trapped emotions that are living inside of you every day. Life is a precious gift and most of us rarely live in the moment and enjoy it. Remember to slow down and engage with life and your loved ones. When these negative emotions and thoughts come up don’t avoid them, confront them head on and stand tall in the face of fear. Otherwise you are just postponing the inevitable, and creating a bigger pile of baggage to face down the road!
