Think about the last time you felt a negative emotion: like stress, anger, or frustration. Were you able to think as you were going through that negativity? Today, let me show you a simply but effective exercise to deal with a negative emotion.
The next time you find yourself in the middle of a very stressful time, or you feel angry or frustrated, stop!Whatever you’re doing, stop and sit for one minute. While you’re sitting there, completely immerse yourself in the negative emotion.
Once you’ve allowed yourself to be totally immersed in the emotion and really feel it, you will be surprised to find that the emotion clears rather quickly. If you feel you need to hold on to the emotion for a little longer, that is ok. Allow yourself another minute to feel the emotion.
When you feel you’ve had enough of the emotion, take a deep breath, as you exhale, release all that negativity with your breath.
You’re listening to Faith Radio Online-Simply to Relax, I’m Faith. By allowing that negative emotion the space to be truly felt, you are dealing with the emotion rather than stuffing it down and trying not to feel it. You are actually taking away the power of the emotion by giving it the space and attention it needs. When you immerse yourself in the emotion, and realize that it is only emotion, it loses its control. You can clear your head and proceed with your task.
Meditation is when you focus your attention to help you feel calm, relaxed and stress-free. Meditation gives you a clear consciousness about yourself as a person and a clear understanding of your life.
