Word of the Week - Emotions•
Posted on December 07 2018
Have you ever wondered how much power an emotion can have over you? Emotions are often called feelings because each emotion has a physical impact on you. When you are stressed, you don't have something on your chest, but the pressure you feel is real. When you are happy, your body is okay, but it feels like your chest will burst.
So, if emotions can have such a great influence on you, or any of us really, why do we ignore emotions? Why do we not take care of our emotional well-being? Why does it seem like we never have time for the truly important things in life?
What is emotional well-being?
If your emotions have been going out of whack lately, it might mean that you haven't been taking care of your emotional well-being. Emotional well-being isn't something that you can overlook without consequences. When you let your emotions pile up without trying to understand, how or why these emotions keep popping out you are putting yourself into enormous pressure. And sooner or later, good and bad things come in your life.
But, how do you live with them when you've lost touch with yourself? How do you process the turbulent situations of life when you don't know who you are anymore?
A tree with strong roots can withstand the most violent storm, but the tree can't grow roots just as the storm appears on the horizon.
To prosper and grow in life, you can't keep ignoring your emotional well-being. As Dalai Lama stated, you need to dive within yourself and try to understand yourself. Only by understanding, you can plant deep roots, and grow into a bigger, better person. Because in your life, a thousand storms will come, but only you are capable of working on yourself so you can withstand them.
What are the best ways to achieve emotional balance?
There are many different things that you can try, but the first step is the most important - taking some time for yourself. We are not talking about quitting your life, packing up and traveling the world (although it's not a bad idea) but rather to take some time off every day. To take care of yourself, you have to be willing to devote time to yourself. Afterwards, there are a few options. We would recommend:
-Crystal Healing with Black Healing Stones
Black Healing Stones usually connect to your Root Chakra, the very center of grounding and balancing energies which are perfect for helping you maintain your emotional well-being. Their grounding, calming energy frequencies can do wonders to soothe raging emotions. Black Tourmaline, for example, can even help you protect yourself from negative vibes, while combined with Black Onyx it can help you to fearlessly seek for the truth within. You can buy tumbled stones, to help you during meditation or you can even buy yourself a pendant to help you maintain your balance wherever you go.
- Use Scented Soy Candles To Keep You Emotionally Balanced
Spiritual Candles can have a lot of meanings, depending on their colors and scents. By using candles, you can help yourself relax, slow down, and let their nurturing scents and positive energies help you on your road to emotional well-being.
Soy scented candles are one of the best candles to use when you are trying to figure out your emotions and what is going on with you.
Why Scented Soy Candles?
What are the benefits of Scented Soy Candles?
-They are made from vegetable soybean oil which means that they are natural, ecological and biodegradable. If you make a mess with them, don't worry because you can clean it up with soap and water easily!
- They burn slower and longer than other candles. Because of their lower melting point, the essential oils in scented soy candles don't burn out fast like in other candles - the scent is stronger and lasts longer.
