Don’t Take Anything Personally! Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering –  Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

To manage our emotions is not to drug them or suppress them, but to understand them so that we can intelligently direct our emotional energies and intentions…. It’s time for human beings to grow up emotionally, to mature into emotionally managed and responsible citizens. No magic pill will do it –  Doc Childre, Founder: HeartMath Institute

From Dr Arien: Decide to feel the joy! The shift in consciousness taking place right now, is calling us to move away from our old default mode, steeped in negative emotions, asking us to embrace a more balanced and positive perspective. This also includes how we perceive our emotions and the lessons we are learning from them. Try this: the next time you have a positive, fun or joyful emotional experience, be with it and ask yourself, ‘Why is this happening?’ and ‘What am I learning from this?’. If you do this often enough, you will begin to see how much you really do learn from all the wonderful and happy emotions, rather than only from the negative ones. You will find your perception changing from that of a negative mode of being, to a more balanced outlook, using the whole range of human emotions. You may also find that recalling the fun, joyful, playful and happy events, will become easier. They will become a clearly defined piece of your ‘inner reference material’, creating a new default mode in your brain.

The more you shift your attention toward positive emotions and the tremendous learning to be found in joy and pleasure, you will be calling more of it into your life!
