When Emotions Kick Your Ass | Spiritual Direction - The Work, J.R. Mahon

We learn our emotions. We learn to manage them. We learn to receive them, witness them or ignore them. The “ignoring,” most familiar. Human consciousness evolves. We slowly come to see how feelings enslave the hell out of us. Our society is set up to ignore emotions, from booze to social media it’s in our DNA, we run from authenticity. Our not talking or coming up with ways not to talk is the death of our day. As a spiritual director I am aware of the dance between emotions and spirit and how the two need to shake hands while walking into the sunset. That relationship is all about your willingness to get conscious with who you are, what you’re feeling and what you're doing while breaking the bondage of an over-bloviated emotional landscape. The more we place ourselves in a position to expose our emotions for what they are, what they do to you and what they do to others the more centered, enlightened, saved or delivered into unitive consciousness we become.  Below is a feeling chart… a dear friend of mine living in Cambodia reminded me of this graph. It’s a great tool! Now, I know there are a few of you who are way too cool for school for this one but suck it up, don't be a jackass and take a spin on this guide. It will help you identify what's happening in you and perhaps give you a shot at breaking a few emotional chains kicking your ass. If you want the PDF, write me, I’ll send it.
