The Anatomy of Emotions

On this episode join Mary as she guides us through a new understanding of our emotions. Through gaining a better understanding of what is happening in our minds and bodies as emotions arise, we can feel empowered to face them head on.

Most of us are scared to feel the range of emotions. Scared to feel anything too intensely. Even when trauma strikes, when tragedy hits, we close up, shut down and tighten. We have this fear around our emotional process.

But here’s the problem. This way of disassociating from our feelings perhaps works as a survival mechanism in the short term, but we need to learn how to feel and processing our emotions in a healthy way long term so that we can truly be fully alive.

Many of us spend a lot of time resisting our emotions because we are afraid of what that experience of them will be because we associate the experience of an emotion to what it’s like to experience it after we’ve resisted it because it explodes.
— Brooke Castillo

And because of this, many of us haven’t truly felt emotions in a really long time. 

And so we aren’t familiar with them.

We have no vocabulary for expressing them.

We have a sense that they are too intense and will take you over.

We won’t let ourselves feel loneliness, anger, rejection, fear, desire and so we go numb or we hyper control.
