Human Emotions -- http://www.noahhammond.com Learn the core technique -- the most powerful tool for understanding your emotions, releasing old blockages and moving POWERFULLY into the four-step process of emotional choice
Today, you are going to learn the core technique, which is the single most powerful tool I have come across for understanding your emotions. It will help you remove the emotional reactivity of that three-step model we talked about in the last video and step powerfully into the four-step model where you get to CONSCIOUSLY choose your reactions and your reality.
I can't take credit for the creation of this technique. I learned it from a man named Tom Stone from book called Pure Awareness.
It was a combination of five techniques for really understanding this aspect of your life. This was the most powerful one. I have been using it for over two years and it DRATISCALLY improved my life.
Human Emotions -- How they Get Stuck in Us
First, here's something you need to know before you learn the core technique.
We've talked about how emotions are energy in motion in the first video of this mini-series: Understanding Emotions.
In fact, when your sub-conscious creates this energetic message (fear, anger, doubt, etc.), if you don't interpret it, it doesn't disappear. It actually gets STORED somewhere in your body waiting for another opportunity to express itself.
Imagine a rubber band that has been pulled tight. If you don't let go of that rubber band, it's going to have that energy stored in it. It will have that energy stored into it until you LET go of the rubber band.
It is the same for an emotion that has not been listened too or has not gotten the opportunity to EXPRESS itself.
Until you let that emotion expresses itself or until you pay attention to it, it's going to stay filled with energy, EXACTLY like the rubber band. It's going to wait somewhere in your body until you give it the attention it deserves.
This is why you know people who at the littlest thing simply go off!
They have not done this technique to release old and tight rubber bands. If something caused them to feel anger before and they stuffed this anger down without paying attention to it, every time something similar happens, it's going to reactivate ALL of those old, tight rubber bands that they held to.
So, when a NEW stimulus comes at the similar frequency, something seemingly very small will now reactivate this HUGE reaction inside them.
That is why some people seem to be wound up tight, because they ARE. They are literally FILLED with these tight rubber bands of emotions.
Anytime there is a situation that can activate them, they are all going to try to express themselves again. You were supposed to listen the first time, but you didn't so now it all comes up and it builds, builds, and builds.
That's how emotions get STUCK in us.
That's why people walk around unconfident, unhappy, unexpressed and lacking the life that they truly desire because these emotional blockages keep them STUCK in the reactive old models.
That's the foundation you need to understand.
Releasing Human Emotions -- The Core Technique
Let's get into technique - the core technique.
This is the process by which you can experience old emotions and finally release them. Then, when NEW emotions come up, you can understand them and witness them.
Here is the process. Every time you have an emotional reaction, you need to DIVE into it.
Suppose something happens that causes you anger. Anger or any emotion is always going to materialize in your body as a FEELING.
Anger will generally be a burning, a raging or a tightness right in your chest. Doubt or worry will probably be felt somewhere in your gut. Heartbreak is normally right in the center of your chest again. All these things have a feeling to them.
Here is what you do. You VISUALIZE in your mind an image for that feeling. Usually for me, it is a cloud of colored energy. So if I was feeling anger or doubt, it would be just like a red, grey or black cloud of energy. You can also give it a symbol. You can give it whatever you would like.
Then, once you have an image of it, bring your full awareness inside of it. Surround that visual in LOVE.
Put yourself inside it and even though it feels bad, bring your loving awareness into it. Let that emotion know it is OK to be expressed.
"I am here to listen." You invite it to speak. Invite it to express itself. You are there to witness it, to feel it and to get the message that you have ignored so many times before. You are there to listen, experience, and receive...
