Category Archives: Wild Emotions
Today I am struggling with the writing challenge theme. Today the question is “What do people thank you for? What do you love helping people with? What would you be happy and excited to help others with even if you don’t get paid?”
I would enjoy helping people with maths….only kidding. What would I do? <insert long procrastination brain freeze at this point> hahahaha.
I love helping people talk through their stuck points, uncover their secret passions, talk about their secret wildness and show them glimpses of possibilities. I love to see people start to kick off those shackles of self-limiting beliefs that keep them imprisoned in their domesticated worlds. They are usually just living a life full of ‘shoulds’ and I know you know exactly what I am talking about because we all do it. This word in my opinion should (lol) be banned from the dictionary and never used again.
As I say to people brave enough to listen to my ramblings – “there is nothing in our lives we ‘have’ to do, just as ‘should’ is an unconscious brain fart expression that really does nothing more than tell others that we are not making a decision for ourselves. Once we use that word we are verbalising someone else’s expectation of us. If we were making the decision that was true to us, we would never use that word. True? If you ever hear yourself using that word, stop and question whose voice are you hearing in your head or whose expectations do you feel you have to meet.
Well, this post definitely has gone down some random path, so time to bring it back to the original question – what would I help others with even if I don’t get paid…..I would help others to feel free. I would help them think about their wildness and real ness and passions hidden inside themselves. With freedom comes possibilities and with possibility comes an authentic life.
Always choose to life an authentic life. I will be living it right beside you.
One thing I know for sure, you need to become more comfortable with quiet time, alone time. Just you and your thoughts. Stop trying to dampen your feelings and thoughts with mindless technology use or “busyness”. Preventing your emotions to be felt and processed is creating a beast inside you. One where the emotions and thoughts explode every so often, no longer able to be contained. Not to the outside world. The explosion occurs in your head and heart and it can feel overwhelming. The explosive emotions and thoughts are so strong, the volume so large. It is easier to pretend they don’t exist.
Time to stop pretending and ignoring. You DO feel, you DO think. You are already probably know that you need to process these thoughts and feelings. You can’t keep hiding. At some stage in your life you will come to realise that the wildness needs to be heard. You need to listen. Take the time to listen. Bringing these to the surface may be a little challenging – you may cry or get angry at all the things yet unexpressed. This is OK. It is part of the process. You may be craving peace with soft, subtle feelings and emotions – not all or nothing. At this stage you don’t have to action anything – just be prepared to listen to your wild heart. The soft and subtle will come. First you have to release the beast that has built up inside you.
