Speaker, Author, Emotions Educator – Bridging emotion and culture
I spent the first 37 years of my life trying to close the gap between where I actually was and where I really wanted to be – in my relationship, as a parent, in my working life, with my finances and in my body. I consistently faced the same disruptive feelings, presenting as different situations that I was always trying to fix or resolve in my search for satisfaction and fulfilment. If I could only go back and tell the younger me what I know today …
Older me: You know, you can’t ‘learn’ the way to close the gap. It’s all about the feelings.
Younger me: If I just do that course I saw, read that latest book, go to that expert, try harder, love more, love differently, meditate more…
OM: Well, you can. But you’ll always feel the gap … haven’t you noticed? That persistent feeling will continue to crop up and
YM: Yes, but I haven’t tried everything yet.
OM: OK. Well. When you’re ready, life can be much less frustrating and overwhelming if you learn to engage in and understand the feeling.
YM: How can it be? Take a reality check, feelings are the opposite – painful and hard. Uncomfortable. Why would I want to learn about them. I just want them gone.
OM: Yes that’s how it seems. But there’s a frame which underpins everything you do and while ever you’re launching from within that frame, you’ll be stuck in a loop. Same feeling different event. You’ll always be trying to close the gap, be somewhere better, because the frame keeps you separate from your personal power. The gap is where you’re not standing in your truth (being true to yourself) and that generates a very uncomfortable feeling.
YM: That’s impossible. I would have read about it, or learnt it at school.
OM: What if it’s so hidden and has become so embedded into the way you relate, you can’t even see it? Just like you can’t see the wind, but often you can feel its effects.
YM: OK so say that’s true. How can I get out of it? and … wait… maybe I don’t really want to. I mean, I sort of feel a bit comfortable with what I’m doing. What would I have to do anyway?
OM: Understand your emotions, educate yourself in the experience of them – they’re a door.
And that was where it all began. I started to integrate the way I felt into the way I lived, by building a relationship with them. I used the gift of my emotion to point me to my personal truth within challenges (ie my most empowered state). Now, after working with thousands of people, I’ve observed it’s possible to have an emotion education – a way of engaging in the feeling experience that is your life, naturally, so it activates personal power and you can be your truest self. That’s such a relief.
