The Language of Emotions by Karla McLaren
Kiana Ng Yoga
I think that the topic of emotional awareness and understanding is SO important. I come across so many people, day-to-day, who are trapped in their emotions from not having the awareness of how to work with them, rather than against them.
Emotions are always categorized as either good or bad, negative or positive… There’s always some sort of duality which I can’t agree with. Every single emotion arises for a reason and are typically just responses to our thoughts. Each emotion is what it is; a lesson, an indicator, a sensation. Changing your perspective to that of duality to non-duality + being able to work with your emotions is both extremely healing and helpful & can lead to living a more pain-free life.
In Karla McLaren’s book, The Language of Emotions, she covers a whole array of emotions ranging from anger, sadness, confusion, depression, joy, happiness, & much more. It took me to a whole other level of understanding some of the root reasons why an emotion comes up. It taught me how I can let go of past emotions that I was holding on to through that deeper awareness and understanding of how to work with me.
