The First Law of Emotional Power is Permitting: giving yourself 100% permission to have an emotional world.
The Second Law of Emotional Power is Objectifying: perceiving your emotional world as a separate object that can be examined, assessed, and cared for.
The Third Law of Emotional Power is Locating: how and where you find your emotional energy, free from narratives and external forces.
From our earliest years our minds are trained to look outside ourselves and logically problem solve. These skills are great for a lot of things, but when it comes to emotional power, externalizing has you looking outside for something that is happening inside, and problem solving tries to fix something that does not need to be fixed.
Where in your body are you feeling this stress? This is the question I ask anyone who is reporting a problem to me. The body is where emotions reside, and thus is the most potent place to work with them. When you are experiencing upset of any theme, you will always find one or more areas of the body tense, contracted, and/or inflamed.
While the outside world is the source of many emotional triggers and yes, we need to be responsible for what we let in, emotional power is an inside job. Instead of looking outside of ourselves, emotional power focuses on the body and the currents of emotional energy that are always running through it.
The emotional energy in your body is what you permit (Law #1), and the object you examine, assess, and care for (Law #2).
Emotional awareness is body awareness.
