What Are My Emotions Saying

Your Emotions Are Speaking To You, Are You Listening?

What are my emotions saying? That is a great questions to ask yourself. Your emotions don’t lie. They are there to give us a clue to something that is going on, something we need to look at.what are my emotions saying

The emotions I am talking about show up in the body. Mine show up in my stomach area. The feeling is hard to explain, but if you pay attention to the emotions in your body you will know the feeling I am talking about.

  Ask yourself often, what are my emotions saying?

When this feeling is there I ask myself what are my emotions saying or what do I need to look at. That feeling is usually there because there is something that we are not accepting. I don’t mean we have to agree with something. We can still disagree with what ever and just accept that is just is.

I usually question myself about things that are going on around me and when I find the answer then the feeling will kinda change , letting me know I have found it.

From there it will depend upon what I found. If it is a problem that needs a solution, I will either try to find a solution or accept that I need to find a solution and then just release the thought from my mind.

By doing this a solution will be found when you are not thinking about it. If you find that you ask what are my emotions saying to me and you can’t figure it out. Just accept that you can’t find an answer right now and release the thought from your mind and the feeling will go away. Then at a later time you will get the answer to what the feeling was or you will get the feeling back again to try to figure it out again.

Once you find a solution to whatever your body is trying to tell you the feeling just dissolves. Of course the solution maybe that you can’t find a solution, so you just accept that.

I remember as a child, I would get the feeling in my stomach and I would try to figure out why I was feeling that way. You see as a child there is not half as much garbage in our minds so when my body spoke to me I listened. I just knew that if I could find what it was trying to tell me that it would go away. Maybe you had this happen to you as a child. If you did you will know the feeling and you will remember the clearness of your head.

By getting into a habit of doing this you will be getting to know yourself better. It will start to make you more and more aware of what is going on inside your head.

    Hey admin,

    It is a great thing when you know what your emotions are trying to tell you. Sometimes we get so caught up in our busy lives and do not pay attention to our emotions.

    Are you referring to “butterflies” in your stomach when you speak about emotions? Sometimes when you are undertaking a new venture or about to make a big decision, you will fee those inside your stomach.

    The important thing to remember is to have no fear and keep doing just like nike says “Just Do It!”

    Thanks for sharing this.

      Hi Jason,
      I know what you mean by butterflies. I was referring to another feeling your body will send you that tells you something needs to be looked at. I totally agree with having no fear and just keep moving forward!

    Many of the emotions I feel affect my stomach as well, both the good and the bad emotions.
    Personally, whenever a big change or something really good is about to happen, I feel it in my stomach first. If i don’t pay really close attention very often I mistake it for a feeling of anxiety.
    Thanks for this article, it really gives some insight into the way that our emotions affect our body.

    Love and light.

      I am glad to hear that you pay attention to your emotions. You are right about feeling good and bad feeling in the stomach. Next time you feel you have a chance to experience both good and bad try to feel the difference.

    hi Gloria
    I could not agree more that we need to pay attention to what our body is telling us. It is something I have learned to do over time but now I am very attuned to my body as it always knows if something is going on with me. Before my brain can catch up….It is a skill that can be developed and as a therapist, it is essential for me to have that skill. it has helped me so much with clients, to recognize that something was being triggered.

    I know the exact feeling you are describing. It get it often at night. I have noticed that if I address it by writing the thought down or think through a solution I feel better.

    I love you suggestion and explanation. Our minds are busy places and can be hard to shut off!

    Emotions and Feelings are OK. It is the interpretation I give them that causes suffering. This is an important website. Keep it up!!

    It’s hard to define sometimes, to get to the root of what is bothering you. And that feeling nags at you, you just can’t shake it. I think it helps to take a look at your surroundings when you feel this way and what is going on right at that very moment. I like your suggestion to accept that there are some things beyond our control.

      Hi Barb, I agree it can be hard sometimes to figure out exactly what that feeling is.
      When this happens, I just accept that I don’t know what it is.
