Emotions and the Gifts They Bring Us

by Dynamic Emotional Integration® professional Heather Giasson

When I first arrived in the world of Dynamic Emotional Integration®, one of my favourite things to learn about were the gifts that emotions bring to us. Emotions are here to help us, and they offer gifts when we flow and engage with them. This was such a radical thought for me at the time that my inner curiosity really sat up and wanted to know more.

Gifts like self-esteem, conviction, rest, connection, boundaries, and playfulness, to name a few, sounded like great things to have access to, right?

Discovering my emotions again

In my early days in the DEI community I’d lost touch with being able to identify and name many of my emotions. I would know I was feeling something, but would often get stuck on the which emotion I was feeling, and this made learning the unique questions of each emotion just out of reach for me.

I could, however, identify which gift I was needing more of, or which state of being would help me navigate whatever experience I was in.

A different way into the emotions

That’s when it hit me; I might be able to become more connected with my emotions through what I call a side-door approach. I could connect with an emotion through its unique gifts first, rather than beginning with identifying it; I could actually jump into the emotional waters rather than stay stagnant and stuck.

This was the first seed of what has become the Exploring Your Emotions as Allies workshop coming up on March 11th that I’m so happy to share with you.

During this 2-hour workshop, you’ll have an immersive experience of examining your emotions through the gifts they bring to you, and developing a new degree of awareness of your current emotional patterns.

This inclusive approach to emotions as vital parts of our psyches is a secret I don’t want to keep quiet anymore, so let’s spread the word…

Emotions are our allies!

I hope to see you at the workshop! You can click the link below to learn more or register.
