Are emotions steering your life?

Everyone experiences some anger, some fears, and some feelings of inadequacy, etc.  as temporary emotional states.  However, sometimes emotions persist,  impacting life in a way that creates conditions that are not wanted. When your emotional reactions have too much impact and begin to feel like they are ‘steering’ your life, that is when you might consider doing health coaching with EFT, to help yourself and your loved ones.

Do you have emotional buttons ?

Imagine you are in a vehicle as driver or passenger, and you are moving comfortably down the road, enjoying the day.  In front of you on the dashboard are many buttons that can determine the direction the vehicle moves.  Some buttons lead you to great places, others to places you don’t want to go.

Suddenly, and seemingly out of nowhere, a button gets pushed, sending your vehicle off the road where you are reacting to get control again.  Maybe you end up in the ditch, stuck.  Maybe you speed up; unexpected threats are everywhere and all you can do is hang on for dear life.  Or maybe you feel yourself being pulled off on a side road, full of potholes and curves, and you don’t know how to get back on the comfortable road.  You feel lost and confused.

Emotional buttons can be like the buttons on the dashboard of our vehicle.  If they are being pushed on a regular basis, your journey will feel difficult. You may find yourself confused about how to change direction, always on edge for the next time, searching for the ‘stop!’ button.  Your focus can become one of high alert, just trying to prevent another triggered button.

How do emotional buttons impact life?

If you have had experiences that make you vulnerable, those emotional buttons may be bigger or bolder and more likely to get pushed.  Sometimes a number of buttons get pushed at once, or they become stuck ‘on’.  Your journey feels out of your control. Whether you are the driver or the passenger, experiencing disruptive emotions affects life in a big way.  Some of the common impacts are:

  • you have relationship struggles
  • you have health problems
  • you use so much energy trying to keep control, there’s little left over for moving toward your goals; it stops you from realizing your potential
  • you start to push your own buttons, feeling guilty, hopeless, powerless, confused, limited, etc.
  • you recognize you are modeling dysfunction for your children

Can we really change our emotional health?

Our emotions are not who we are.  Emotions are something we experience.  People are not depressed.  They are experiencing depression.  People are not angry.  They are experiencing anger.  If emotions (your own or someone else’s) are being experienced in a way that your life is being steered by them, they are disrupting your potential peaceful state.  The solution may be easier to achieve than you realize.   Contact me to determine whether working together could benefit you.
