Emotional Management

What thoughts does the word ’emotions’ evoke for you? Emotions are highly diverse, intricate and tightly woven in with our personal histories, present experiences and future concerns. Feeling like emotions are in the driver’s seat, so to speak, is completely normal. At what point may we consider putting another force in the driver’s seat. What drives your emotions? In a recent webinar for coaching, I learned that emotions can be channeled to work for us and not against us. Oft times, we allow our emotions to become instigated by internal and external voices bringing us to transfer blame, to ignore or to want to run away from what is provoking deep internalized feelings of guilt, fear, sadness or other. What instigates our emotions? In other words, what is pushing our buttons?

When discussing with a client what they would like to work on in session, there are a plethora of opportunities to work through, many of which carry some internal pressures accumulated over time. Perhaps stress, fatigue, or even suppressed feelings and emotions toward someone or something. The trifecta of emotions, thoughts and feelings  inhabit the two types of energies in the universe: positive and negative. Negative energy tears down and initiates a state of atrophy, whereas positive energy builds up and elevates a state of existence into a higher power. Across all clients, the pattern is us allowing our buttons to be pushed and falling into a tailspin while channeling ‘negative’ energy. We have all experienced this tailspin from ‘negative’ energy and it makes complete sense why we become incomprehensible to ourselves and incidentally emotionally spent. Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. One of my mentors states that we become comfortable in our self-destructive ways. If we fall yesterday, then we shall get back up today. What is it costing you to be in a perpetual state of emotional mismanagement?

I want this to be a safe space to share my goings-on while I dig deep into my journey of self-discovery. What brings me to my desire to share my journey? I wish to provide life-coaching services to others. I coach to help others uncover what it is that is holding them back from accomplishing what is dearest in their hearts, spirit and minds. I am currently a student at iPEC, Institute of Professional Excellence in coaching. I am determined to disseminate my coaching services to all those interested. While I coach, I also would like to share bits and pieces of what it is that I do as a life coach-to-be and inversely, what I do not do. I am an imagineer, at your service. That is the best way I can describe a life coach to you. As a life coach-to-be, I can teach you how to think outside the box, consider alternative perspectives and reflect on what influences your thoughts. If any of this sounds like something you are experiencing, what is stopping you from moving forward? A space to message me may be found on the middle menu option on my home page. I acknowledge, appreciate and embody gratitude for each and every one of you and the struggles which you endeavour each and every moment. No one is a stranger to adversity. We can all overcome adversity because of our combined diversity. Thank you for contributing your time into our growing and collective, worldly diversity. Endearingly yours, Kim
