Try labelling emotions precisely. Negative emotions include pride, anger, craving, fear, regret, despair, blame & shame.
BENEFITS OF LABELLING
There is a benefit to accurately labelling an emotion. It’s like making the effort to correctly label a computer file. Then we can more easily find them for full processing later! With practice, we become better at recognising our emotions.
DON’T HIDE FROM EMOTIONS
We tend to avoid dealing with negative emotions. But they’re the ones that cause the most damage! So, concentrate on feeling & labelling your bad feelings or ‘negative’ emotions. Fearing them will only suppress them! Avoiding them won’t make them go away!
ACCURATELY IDENTIFY THEM
It’s also valuable to classify our emotions according to HOW NEGATIVE they are. This makes them even easier to identify in our memory bank! Then if a bad feeling resurfaces, we can be sure we have the ‘right file’. Then we can clear the remaining energies!
SUMMARY OF CHALLENGE 2
Recall a recent mildly annoying emotion. Briefly re-experience what it feels like, then release & clear it fully. Sometimes an insight or wisdom is gained in this processing.
