Have you ever felt overwhelmed with life? Have you ever felt so many emotions at once and didn’t know what to do?
It’s okay; you are human what makes us different from robots is our emotional intelligence. We are not artificial and feel real raw emotions such as anger, sadness, fear, anxiousness, numbness, and so many more!
I am a mental health therapist. I have been trained to have a high degree of EQ (emotional intelligence) to provide high-quality services to help improve the quality of life of others. I also help with expanding consciousness, but that’s a whole different story. EQ is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships thoughtfully and empathetically. My job is to help others explore their own emotional needs to help increase their EQ.
Our thoughts create our emotions, and it is our emotions that create our behaviors. What kind of behaviors suggest it’s time to seek professional mental health therapy?
Emotions or E-Motion is simply energy that is in motion within the body. Think about it? The moon controls the ocean tides. Our human adult bodies are made up of 60% water. The moon also controls the energy within us, impacting the flow of our emotions in a negative or positive way depending on the person. Have you heard of the saying, “it must be a full moon” when behaviors in others may be off balance? I have heard this in our school industry and most definitely in the health care system. The moon’s energy amplifies our emotions. Studies have found links between the lunar cycle and the number of psychiatric emergencies. However, be grateful for these breakthroughs because It’s only when our feelings rise up that they can move out of us, and this is when healing starts.
A mental health therapist can help you look into your body sensations to transform challenging emotions and increase emotional intelligence; it is the most important piece of the puzzle that leads to happiness. This is especially true when you understand that sensory and emotional information is recorded into memory first; thoughts and perceptions, second. This distinction provides clues for increasing emotional intelligence while pointing out the limitations of purely thought-based approaches.
When our emotions are blocked and the energy cannot flow freely, it will result in physical ailments. Your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. This is one type of “mind/body connection.” When you are stressed, anxious, or upset, your body reacts in a way that might tell you that something isn’t right. For example, you might develop high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer after a particularly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one. People who have good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They have learned healthy ways to cope with the stress and problems that are a normal part of life. They feel good about themselves and have healthy relationships.
If your negative feelings don’t go away and are so strong that they keep you from enjoying life, it’s especially important for you to seek a mental health professional.
