The Observer

A practice that is really powerful when working with strong emotions is to learn how to become our own observer. That means being conscious in what we are feeling in an intense experience, or even in an emotional exchange with someone else. When we do this we allow ourselves the privilege of really seeing what is being triggered, defended, or if it is our ego that was hurt.

It is by becoming our own observer that we have the opportunity to make choices from the information that we gathered and decide if it is important to respond by letting go or if we really need to take a stand without the emotions making a decision for us. If we learn that our emotions are really only a gauge for us to look at a situation and different views of the world around us then we feel more empowered for stepping into our integrity.
