    Emotional Processing - Permanently Drop That Baggage!

    Emotional Processing - Permanently Drop That Baggage!

    Imagine living free of any and all emotional turmoil, pain, upset, anger, disappointment, jealousy, sadness and hurt from your childhood till now.

     It is possible.

    Most people live in an internal prison of the mind
    and emotions. Non-stop all day every day. So reactive to the world and thus also so attached to the thoughts and feelings that arise that these thoughts and feelings not only FEEL real, they become who most of us think we are. I’m
    angry. I’m sad. I want this. I need that. You wake up it starts and it doesn’t stop until you go to bed and even then, it may wake you up in the night...

    This is what many of us call “normal” and what most of us don’t realise is actually a self-created prison keeping us from living the life we are here to live.

    How do we awaken from this? First, we realise our self in this story. Hello! I’ve been there too!



    Alas, you can’t change that moment by going back and
    replaying it for the rest of your life BUT we can however use those moments as springboards to access the core emotions (pain / upset / regret / trauma whatever it may be
    for you) attached to that that which we have been carrying round AND then we get to work!



    I call this practice ‘Emotional Processing’ think
    of it like learning how to permanently drop the emotional/mental baggage of your entire life so far and not collect any more moving forward. All by using the power of both eastern and western psychological practices in one artful process that you can use as a go-to whenever required.  



    We dive into;


    How you "trained for this!"
    This IS an opportunity for growth
    ‘Good Vibes’ only approach NOT the answer
    Rising above the emotional/mental prison
    Learning the Art of Emotional Processing:
    Basic 9 Step Approach
    Sit & Relax
    Breathe
    Awareness & Acknowledgment
    Accept the Experience
    Direct Dialogue
    Finding the Root Feeling
    Feel
    Witness
    Transcending Emotions
    Shift in Consciousness
    Where to from here?
    What happens when Emotions come up?


    Stella Gem

    "Once you can fully sit in that feeling space, in complete acceptance of “this is the feeling” you can then gently begin to shift your perspective this is the ‘reframing’ that Buddhist
    psychology talks of. This is the path to transcendence – and by that I mean transcendence of emotions controlling you, you are going ‘beyond them’ ..."



    Stella Takeaway

    "This is all part of the Path of self-realisation and thus the Path to integrating your ‘lower nature’ as we call it in Esoteric Psychology (that being your personality, physical,
    emotional, mental vehicles as I’ve spoken of in other episodes) and lifting all of that to your ‘higher or divine nature’ (we can call that Soul) which we are All here to learn."

    Enjoy

    Parenting with Consciousness – From Surviving to Thriving the Early Stages & Beyond

    Parenting with Consciousness – From Surviving to Thriving the Early Stages & Beyond

    It’s a temporary time of sacrifice – a breaking open in ways, a breaking down in ways, a birthing and a re-birthing in ways. Particularly for the mother. But for all parents it is a new world of wonderment and undeniable chaos.

    The State of your '3 Vehicles'
    How to assess where you are; Physically Emotionally, Mentally

    Opportunity to learn Divine Attributes
    Guidance for the Mama's
    Guidance for the Dada's
    Parenting with Consciousness as Your Evolution


    Stella Excerpt

    "My Golden Key for you is to allocate time and resources to doing what recharges YOU - It’s not enough to just be ‘conscious’ or ‘aware’ as a parent. It is about taking action on getting your primary needs met too. Of course, it won’t be to the same degree as before – PB – pre-baby as I call it.
    But, even a little bit will top you up enough to get through a day, or the week…"

    Takeaway Gem

    "IF you can regulate your needs; physically, emotionally and mentally (even spiritually for those of us walking the path) it will make this time of transition easier. Though not necessarily easy. Finding moments of more ease and calm amid the chaos does help you continue on and slowly rebuild gently with time."

    The Life Changing Art of Detachment

    The Life Changing Art of Detachment

    We are creatures of habit. Creatures of comfort. Who seek pleasure over pain, familiar over unfamiliar. We’ve been programmed in modern times to seek the fast, cheap and easy in life. Be that in diet, fitness and health regimes to fixing our relationship problems in ‘only three steps’.

    What if we instead turn within and seek to learn The Art of Detachment?

    Detachment from thoughts, emotions and behaviours that limit us and keep us repeating the same cycles while our bodies age and weary. As a result, we may well reach the high point which the Ageless Eastern Wisdom, many faiths and philosophies speak of. A point ‘of lived wisdom’ we could call it.  A point where we cease to create suffering for ourselves and others.

    Stella Excerpt

    "Letting go has for too long been associated with endings, death, suffering and pain. When as we know, it is simply part of the cycle of all that is. Both The Art of Detachment and The Art of Letting Go are therefore simply part of this cycle too. It is in letting go of what no longer serves; in the toy of childhood. In the habitual reactions to a lovers’ doing or not doing what is desired. In the repeating of out dated habits; be that over eating, smoking, buying more stuff or aimlessly scrolling social media, that something dies, ends and, de-taches. Allowing something new to take its place. A tiny shift, a tiny change and thus a tiny turn upon the spiral of life moves us forward."



    Takeaway Gem

    “…and if nothing else what if I asked you to ask yourself what are you most attached to right now? how can you better deal with that? What is one thing, aspect, person, that you can detach from; be that mentally, emotionally, physically, so that you are no longer hurt, impacted, affected?”



    Your starting point today is simply to take one attachment that you have right now, that you know does not serve you. That is causing you hurt, pain or harm in some way and begin The Art of Detachment from it. As you come to sense, feel, know the liberation that it brings, it will fuel you to continue to take the next attachment, and the next. Slowly peeling them back and casting them off and onto the fire. Making way for your freedom and the consequent freedom of others.

    The Mystics & The Esotericists ~ Blending Heart, Mind & Beyond

    The Mystics & The Esotericists ~ Blending Heart, Mind & Beyond

    Today more than ever, if we are to walk the Path we walk it not only for ourselves but, to purify ourselves to be channels of light to illuminate the way for others. We do so by harmonising and blending the Way of The Heart with The Way of the Mind. The Love with The Wisdom. The Mystical with The Esoteric. For the Mystic of yesterday is to become the esotericist of today.

    Let’s explore some famous mystics and esotericists. How we can not only learn from them but, also how we can develop our heart mind connection to reach our highest potential and carry onwards and upwards the flame they bestowed upon our Way.

    Stella Excerpt

    … keep in mind, there is not one Path, there is never only one way. What works for you and I may be entirely different and that is perfectly fine. Just be honest with yourself that you are working on the mental/mind as well as your emotional/heart/astral and, body/physical.



    Takeaway Gem

    This esoteric way, of blending heart and mind is one of knowing that ‘what is outside is also within’ – that we are one; the microcosmic of the macrocosmic.



    May you find your Way to blending the heart and mind as you walk your Path.

    Flourish Through Adversity: No Mud, No Lotus

    Flourish Through Adversity: No Mud, No Lotus

    How do you get to living from that place where you radiate as the Lotus you are here to be, when you’re feeling stuck in the mud of adversity; be that challenge, change or crisis?

    If you pay attention you can sense, hear, learn and know that the mud serves and nourishes you. It can help awaken, teach you compassion and turn knowledge and lived experience into wisdom.

    So, let’s look at some ways you can Flourish Through Adversity by embracing the opportune mud along the Way.

    Self-Reflection Questions

    Stella Excerpt

    “You are the Lotus, wherever your focus along the way at any given point your highest self is also striving to radiate your perfume and turn your head, heart and Soul unified toward the sun, to shine forth no matter what adversity you may have withstood or are currently experiencing at this seemingly unprecedented time.”

    Takeaway Gem

    “Eventually we learn without the darkness, there is no light. Without winter there is no summer, without Shakti there is no Shiva, no Feminine without masculine. So there simply can be no lotus without the mud. The little and grand challenges. The changes and growing pains we go through over seasons and years. The crisis’ we experience. Be them internally and silently in our own deep feeling and thinking, in our relationship with others we keep striving to compassionately and kindly love. And just as much as collectively, as a humanity in this overly selfish modern world we find ourselves living out life.

    To resist the mud is to resist life. Progress. Growth. Evolution and, inevitable death before rebirth and renewed life can bloom.”

    to finding your Way, through the mud.
