Emotions are messengers that help us learn and evolve. If we can learn to properly channel our emotions, we can begin to work with them in vibrant and ingenious ways. We cripple ourselves unnecessarily when we call some emotions "positive" and other emotions "negative." All emotions can be positive if they arise at the appropriate time and we manage them appropriately - just as all emotions can be negative if they're stuck in a feedback loop, or if we ignore them, hurl them at others, or try to keep ourselves jacked up with them at all times. Each emotion arises for a different reason. In this conversation you'll learn how to properly channel your emotions as you begin to work with them in vibrant and ingenious ways. McLaren explores how we can incorporate the five empathic skills - Grounding, Setting Boundaries, Burning Contracts, Conscious Complaining, and Rejuvenation - so you won't be knocked over by your strong emotional flows. Learn how to burn the "unconscious contracts" holding you back from healthy living in mind, body, and spirit. Explore "conscious complaining" and how it can clear out our clogged up psyche and restore flow to our being, and many other skills as well. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
