Inner Growth Exercise of the Day: Processing Emotional Storms and The Brain
Exploring processing emotional storms and the brain; how deep emotional situations bring forth the emotional brain’s flight or fight response; examples of emotionally stressful situations from the “average” life experiences that are deemed “normal” but that cause reactions based on flight/fight response; how deeper understanding of this mechanism helps us from within as we pursue inner growth following an inner conflict, as well as extend that understanding to all of humanity; and a personal physical experience that shares how I worked through the flight/fight response from within me and that I worked through with mind and heart, inner growth, and unconditional love (hoping the example helps anyone trying to do the same in their own life).
Your Inner Growth Exercise of The Day depending on where you are in your journey:
- Inner Growth Exercise for Beginners: Decide on one to three ways to raise your consciousness to you in moments of emotional stress, as well as one to three ways to bring the feeling of unconditional love and safety to your heart in the stressful moments. Write new ways as they come to mind in time and also journal about the inner growth that takes place for you.
- Inner Growth Exercise for Intermediate: Find the places of duality in your emotional stressful situations and apply what was shared in the beginner’s exercise above, as well as adding one to three neutral and new ways of seeing without judgement the situation to bring yourself to a place of inner neutrality so that you may remove the feeling of stress, pull, duality, that keeps you locked in a cycle that you want to/are ready to break free from.
- Inner Growth Exercise for Advanced: Journal about your newfound ways to work through emotionally stressful situations now that you are in a continuous inner growth mindset mode with your explorations of life events (raising your consciousness to you, the heart and mind of you, the human elements, the self, and all that you can do from within to get through anything unknown, unexpected, or unwanted, and so on).
