Expressing Emotions Appropriately

This is lesson 18 in the series "Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning" looking at aspects of codependency from a spiritual point of view. Each of the 48 lessons includes a prayer or meditation.

Energy naturally expresses. The universe is the sum of coordinated movement interrelating in visible form made up of invisible energy. There is no way to suppress the flow of energy permanently.

Repressed emotions can build up. When we donít have an intimate partner we can still express our loving feelings by sharing a hug with family or friends.

A journaling meditation

- List 3 ways to express loving feelings non-sexually. (Hint: dancing with a friend.)
- List 3 ways to express caring energy. (Hint: baking cookies for someone.)
- List 3 ways to care for yourself energetically. (Hint: taking a fun bike ride.)

Appropriately showing emotion preserves our harmony while fulfilling our natural urge to express. Take time to express emotions appropriately during your normal activities. And, don't forget that even by yourself you can always write out your feelings.

I find that journaling, such as this meditation, helps me channel my positive emotions in a healthy way.
