Yet it is possible (and many people are unaware or find it difficult) to allow yourself to choose your feelings, embracing them in order to make them work for you more constructively.
If we CHOOSE our feelings when they come along (even the negative ones), then we can learn to master them, especially when we also realise that we are creating our own feelings - we are responsible for them - and nothing or nobody else.
I have received the following wonderful guidance by relax7.com in my inbox today and would like to share it with you. I hope it will inspire you to look at your feelings from a new perspective and help you on your healing journey, if you are plagued by negative emotions that are holding you back.
If your days seem filled with unwanted negative feelings, there is only one cure. When they come, choose them. Don't ask why, don't wonder how, don't fight them and never put yourself down for having them.
But most of all never blame someone else for how you feel. If you do, it means you are still fast asleep and your choice is to be a victim.
When the feelings come, even big disturbing emotional feelings say, "I choose this feeling" and know it comes because of something you have thought or done in the past, perhaps a certain belief that you have learned or an attachment that is threatened.
Choice does not mean you want the feelings, but it does mean you are taking responsibility for them. And that is the beginning of self mastery. It is the first step to the healing and resolving of your emotions. But only the first step.
Try this today and then ask yourself what the next step might be. If you are really interested to know, you will come to know!
