What is Emotional Logic?
We do not experience our emotions in a neat linear fashion. I can feel angry about one situation, guilty about another, shocked about a third and depressed about something else. Our emotions are messengers that attempt to get our attention when there is a violation of our values. Emotional Logic provides a framework to befriend and interpret my emotions. EL is a life skill that equips you to make sense of your inner emotional landscape and enable you to navigate your way forward.
Emotions are useful
Your body cannot send you a WhatsApp. It sends you an emotion. E-motion is energy in motion. If you choose to ignore or suppress the emotion, your body could escalate it to a pain. Where in your body do you regularly experience pain? If your body still does not get your attention, it may become desperate and send you a sickness to get you to stop and listen to yourself. Emotions are physical, and they gear you up to take action, or to take a step back and reflect. Emotions may feel unpleasant, but they have a useful purpose. When you learn to engage with their useful purposes, you can restore movement to life and personal growth.
How can Emotional Logic help you?
Our lives are filled with unrecognised grieving that traps us and makes us feel stuck. Disappointments can pile up and drain hope away. The death of a dream can be as valid a trauma as the death of a person. It is possible to shift from feeling overwhelmed with painful self-consciousness, to new insight and self awareness. . Emotional Logic equips you to use your emotional energy to move from the stress cycle to the growth cycle. I can build new resilience when my emotions and my logic operate in a healthy partnership.
Feedback from people who attended the webinar:
An industrial psychologist said: “My emotions have never made sense to me. For the first time in my life I understand the logic of my emotions.” A minister of religion said: “It is the first time that I heard a positive interpretation of depression as an emotion. I never knew that it could have a useful purpose.”
