Our feelings create who we are, our behavior are based on our feelings towards life. Our words are shaped from our feelings towards the world and people around us. Our view of life is based on our feelings on day-to-day basis, and how we feel about ourselves. Are these not enough reason why we need understand our feelings?
By understanding the feeling of “fear” for example, then we become aware and notice the feeling of insecurity and anxiety towards life is caused by this “fear”. By understanding the feeling of “sadness and grief”, then we become notice and aware about the reason why we become sensitive and feeling hurt for most of the time. By understanding and admitting the feeling of “guilt”, then we understand not to create and project that guilty to other people and not continuously making the same pattern of being the victim.
Remember that law of “attract – manifest – project”? We are all the time projecting our feelings to others, especially our significant others; our husband, wife, parents, children, etc. Thus we attract similar feeling to arise within them and at the end manifesting the feeling that we have expected. However, the feelings we have created are not always good for them, sometimes we project our insecurity or fear to them as well. So, by understanding, admitting and expressing these feelings completely and fully, we don’t need to carry them around anymore.
The feelings that have been expressed allow relieve to happen in the physical state. Thus, the body feels more comfortable and more relax. And, in mental state, helps the mind to become more settle, calm and peaceful.
