When we encounter a crisis - be it illness, accident, bereavement or another challenge, it can feel like our bodies, our personalities, our dreams and even our emotions are no longer our own.
Trapped in a forest of foreign emotions or feeling intense grief or anger can, in itself, be immensely trying.
In this series of blog posts I want us to look at the how we can recognise and understand emotion as it grips us and how to reclaim ourselves by mapping a path out.
Our emotions have so much potential in them. They can help us move further along our paths into joy and new experiences or mire us in a mud of grief and stuck beliefs.
It helps at the beginning to recognise the power our emotions have.
