Getting In Touch With Our Emotions

By LifeworX · Jan. 10, 2017 · Life Coaching

I have done extensive work as a life coach and now, more than ever before, I am aware of increasing numbers of people wanting to learn about their own emotional responses. We all know emotionally empowered people - people "in tune" with their emotions, who always seem to come out "on top" in every situation. ‘How do they do that?’ we think, with great admiration and a little envy.

We all want this magical ability to choose the best response to situations in work and home life. What do these emotionally empowered people know that we don’t?

Emotionally empowered people are Emotionally aware.

Emotional Awareness:

Empowers you and gives you ‘the upper hand’ in all life situations.

Makes you capable of managing any feeling that comes over you, which ultimately influences the way you think and how you choose to act.

Empowers you to choose better responses to your emotions.

Empowers you to behave and react appropriately.

Emotional awareness is powerful stuff! I am writing this blog to help and inspire you to better understand yourself and to manage your emotions more skilfully.

Why you might be experiencing difficulty with your emotions:

You may not understand or be able to manage your emotions because you haven’t properly developed an emotional filter. When your emotional filter is not adequately developed, you will find it difficult to regulate your responses to others. Your unfiltered, unregulated emotional response will cause you to act and think in ways that negatively impact your life and the lives of others.

Traumatic or Difficult Life Experiences

You may have become internally disconnected from your emotions through difficult or traumatic life experiences.

Emotional Disconnect and Numbness

You may have become internally disconnected from your emotions if your core emotions were not understood or adequately responded to when you were a child. Certainly, if you are emotionally numb, you will misunderstand and misinterpret your own feelings. This leads to emotional confusion where you sometimes find yourself incapable of understanding your own needs and motivations.

Ask yourself:

Do you catch yourself being overly emotional in your responses?

Are there any physical symptoms that occur when your emotions are stirred (e.g. tight chest, sweaty hands, blushing etc.)?

Do your emotions impact your decision-making? How?

Are other people sometimes caught off guard by your behaviour?

Do you find yourself in ‘awkward situations’ where you don’t know how to act or where you are aware that you would prefer to have acted differently?

This blog has given you a taste of my passion for life coaching. I have spent the last 32 years of my tennis career and the past 10 years of my work as a counsellor and coach developing a system that works to empower others to live their best lives.
