Feel The Feeling But Don’t Become The Emotion

Just like our thoughts, our feelings and emotions are powerful. What we think and how we feel are related.

We must never underestimate the power of our emotions. Our thoughts and emotions are entangled and linked in ways we sometimes can’t comprehend. A common flaw in everyone is the lack of awareness of our thoughts. Most times we tend to react rather the reflect or respond.

The technique to transform is by being aware of what we are thinking, feeling, and witnessing them without judgments. From this space of awareness we can choose to release what’s not needed and connect with the power of choice we have.


Close your eyes, take a deep breath and invite a feeling of calmness. With every breath in- be aware of air going in and out with every Breath out- Release, let go of any tensions, worries… Continue to breathe and keep the focus on breath, sensations, and feelings.


If you feel any tension, stress or negative thoughts come back to your breath.

Pick 1 or more Affirmations (Positive statements).

Affirm by repeating them:

“I am Relaxed”

“I am Calm”

“I breathe and leg go”


Remember this practice and affirmations. At any time if you feel stress, emotional, angry, anxious, take a pause to reflect and respond by breathing and letting go.

Remind yourself that “you are the captain of your sailboat” the master of your life.

I always combine this quote with an Affirmation “ I allow myself to feel and release” and forgiveness.
