I think this is a message that my fellow men particularly need to hear. I have the sense that women are more comfortable with their emotions than men are, but perhaps this is changing.
But we all need to do more than just accept that emotion plays a role in our decision-making. We need a way of tapping in to the power and insight that emotions bring, a way of trusting our hearts with the big decisions as well as the small ones, even when we know that there will be times when the decision won’t make sense to our linear minds.
It helps to trust that although emotion can’t be analyzed objectively or controlled willfully, by letting your feelings flow like a river, you can and will come to a place of clarity, and you can get there by going with your feelings, not fighting them. The key is trusting your heart, and the best possible way to develop that sense of trust is to practice Heart Rhythm Meditation — breathing in tune with your heartbeat, feeling the emotional energy of your heart, breathing fully and deeply, energizing your heart physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
I wish you the best of success in your decision-making process.
