When we express our
emotions rather than block
them, we open our lives to

hat makes us human? Is it
our intelligence, our physical
bodies, our hearts?
No doubt, it is a
combination of them all.
United, we share some common
denominators – ma le or female (or something
in between) – we all inhabit human bodies
with similar functions and needs. Yet, we a re
way beyond whatever we imagine ourselves
to be. Our hea rt vibration extends way
beyond our personal boundaries. If you
sha re a room with other people, you're way
more connected energetically (all affecting
each other) than you may expect.
As human beings, the part less explored
and the path less travelled in Western circles, is
the heart. What brings us closest to the Divine
is actually our 'feeling self ', our emotional
body that houses our spirit. Most book stores
these days offer numerous books focused
on the body (weight loss, building muscle,
nutrition) and on the mind (mindfulness, how
to develop intelligence, issues of the intellect).
The gap in knowledge is related to the heart yet
it is the core of our being, the seat of our innate
intelligence, our souls.
Many in our society suffer from heart
blocks, wa lls of protection surrounding our
hearts. A s a collective a nd a s individuals,
this affects our ability to give a nd receive
love. In Vedic Sanskrit, the word for heart is
“ hridaya,” made up of three pa rts:
“ hri” – to receive
to go, move, circulate
Our feelings are a microcosm of the
world. Our heart reflects our connection to
Creation. Life experiences a re heightened by
emotions; it makes life 'life', in other words,
worth living. Emotions even stimulate the
All human beings have access to their
own personal wisdom which is heart-
centred. Staying present to the 'self ' feeds the
experience of giving and receiving love (as
we experience our Source, our Creator), and
thus we ca n become beacons of inspiration
to those in our presence.
Why are emotions so important?
Essentially, they're what define us as huma n
beings. How we feel is mostly about our heart
a nd connection to God. Thought embraced
is digital too
'Our heart vibration extends
way beyond our personal
by emotion is what creates reality. Emotions
are how our body speaks to us. Emotions are
not about logic. It's essential to feel whatever
you feel without judgement.
Emotions actually flow freely and
naturally when they are allowed to move
through the body. When one surrenders
to feeling without judgement, one a llows
emotions to be felt, and then released. It
is inhibiting emotions that leads to toxic
encumbrance and disease.
"If, in our heart, we still cling to anything –
anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot
be free." ~ Thích Nhãt Hąnh
Unreleased, excessive and unprocessed
emotions can form cancer in the body by
feeding obsessive compulsive neuroses and
programs. Especially prevalent is depression,
which is often caused (or exacerbated) by
suppressing feeling a feeling, hence blocking it
from being expressed and released. Suppressed
emotions become toxic in the body, just like
taking a poison is similarly deleterious.
The body seeks to be alive, vibrantly
expressing how it feels.
The 'five' foundational feelings
We have a consta nt well of emotions that
we draw upon and experience – anger, love,
sorrow, happiness, and fear. These are all
necessar y for our wellbeing and surviva l.
In fact, at a ny given moment, we actually
experience a fusion of these five, our ba se
feeling, which informs the quality of our
experience a nd forms our 'rea lity.'
These five foundational feelings are
protective and ca n actually save our lives.
For insta nce, a nger is often attributed to
being a negative emotion, which, when out
of control, can be fatal, yet anger can just as
well drive a mother to save her child from
a n attacker. Technically speaking, emotions
are not negative or positive, they all make
perfect sense, and all that they ask of us is to
be expressed and relea sed in a healthy way.
How can we align our emotions?
Have fun with laughter and movement!
Generally, the three keys for releasing
emotions are breath, sound and movement
(the same way we access the healing power
of the Divine Orgasm).
