Acts of Contemplation-All Warm and Fuzzy Feelings

hqdefault

Come snuggle in closer
My precious little one
You warm my heart
And make me smile.

I love you my dearest
My honey – My sweet
From the top of your
Furry little head to the
Bottom of tiny clawed feet.

Our emotions are powerful motivators. We shape our world into the form that will best serve our emotions. We choose, sort and categorize our experiences based on how we “feel”. And when we are in our most self-destructive patterning we allow our emotions to burrow in deeply as they open the wounds we have inflicted. We strive as humans to learn to master our emotions and all the while we are also enabling these emotions to control our responses.

In the stillness of contemplation the gift of healing and allowing ourselves to stand naked in the vulnerability of our emotions is one that is continually sought. The goal is one of achieving that state of knowing yourself as you explore through the lens of how you feel. This can be a trap of misinformation, if we do not allow ourselves also the gift of forgiveness for what we consider to be less than positive emotional response. Let’s take a timeout to generate a specific feeling response…

An experience of practice:

Think back to a time when you felt loved and valued. Even for those who have had horrendous lives, this feeling may only be an imaginary wish for what was lacking, but it is still, nonetheless an emotion that can be drawn upon. Think on how safe you felt and the warmth that spread through your being as you surrendered to this space of feeling. Now fill that space with gratitude. Gratitude from the innermost reaches of a heart that is at peace with itself and the world. Allow that gratitude to flow freely harmonizing and opening up these feelings of safety, love and contentment to greater depths. Lay back into the gentle embrace of these feelings that are palpable and flowing like a gentle stream of warming liquid. Remain in this feeling fro as long as you wish.

Warm and Fuzzy Feelings

This was an exercise in generating your own great bear hug that soothes and heals. The intention was one of self-love and finding your place of comfort crafted in your own way and on your own terms. The simple fact is that we are responsible for the state of our emotions and what direction that energy will carry us towards- happiness or hurt. That is not to say that adversity and horrific circumstances don’t test our feeling state. They do, and serve a great dynamic in the growing process of our becoming who we truly are. Cultivating that inner space of self-love moves us that much closer to self-knowledge. And making informed decision about which emotions are appropriate for each situation. This is also the place of learning to trust ourselves enough that we can courageously express our emotional self with ferocity if necessary or in the gentle state of simply being with those we love.
