Awakening to Authentic Power

Chapter Three: Deepening Emotional Awareness

Most people think that the source of their emotional pain is external, but it never is. It is always internal. That is why focusing on what triggers your pain cannot reach the root of it.

When you welcome your emotions as teachers, every emotion brings good news, even the ones that are painful.

– Gary Zukav & Linda Francis

Attention to Emotions

Emotional awareness is relaxing into the present moment, even when that moment contains painful emotions.

Your emotions are your best friends because they do not leave you. They bring your attention to what you need to know about yourself.

Emotional awareness is being continuously aware of the changing array of emotions within you. It requires your ongoing attention.
