Emotions do indeed stir up; they move, remove and displace at times. That is their intended action: To provide a tool for you to create/act/live, they function as a communicator between mind and body. Emotions are transmitters, and life is so much easier when you access them fully as a tool that you harness, not a force to control. It's like driving a car: You could drive without your side mirror, but it's so much more challenging, requiring compensatory maneuvers, guess work and never really having the whole picture. Yes, it can also be dangerous. Your emotions are here for a reason: They are integral to the function and structure of human life, not optional add-ons. The more neutral and functional your approach to them, the easier it is to use them effectively and successfully.
Flower Essences* to create and strengthen emotional boundaries:
- Pink Yarrow: For transforming the tendency to take on others' emotional energies as a means to create harmony in a situation. Use it after attending large grou pfunctions, conferences, parties, etc. when you have trouble winding down and getting back to your life and mind. Helpful for empathic individuals who easily absorb others' emotions and feelings. Helps to cultivate positive sensitivity.
- Centaury: For saying no to others. Serving others from a strong sense of self, moving beyond people pleasing tendencies, recognition of one's own needs, knowing that serving others requires acting from inner strength and knowing oneself.
- Walnut, for making changes outside of societal norms and conventions, based on your personal definition and parameters of this. It's not about getting a tattoo or not, it's whatever decision or action happens to step outside of the bounds of your matrix: family, colleagues, friends and relationships. Your own personal edge may or may not look unconventional. This does not matter. What matters is that it an edge for you, because you feel emotionally, that it may threaten your position within your own microcosm.
