All of your emotional upsets are caused by lack of harmony, imbalances and unresolved issues, from your past or present, in the emotional body. Now, here's the kicker, 98 percent of that upset is what you picked up from other people.

That's right, you are picking up other people's feelings, thoughts and emotions all of the time. Your body is an amazing energy-sensing machine and has its own consciousness. It is designed to give you sensory input, but most people don't even realize that they're taking on someone else's upset.

Since you were in the womb, you have been a sponge that picks up the energy around you all of the time. Have you ever been referred to as too sensitive? 

The truth is that your sensitivity is actually your gift  your ability. You are so much more psychic than you give yourself credit for. The problem is not your sensitivity, it's that you are taking on the energy of other people and making it your own.

What, then, can you do when the negative emotions take over? Here are my seven tips for keeping your emotions in check and maintaining happiness:

1.  Ask yourself, Who does this belong to?

First and foremost, ask yourself, Who does this belong to? You don't even have to answer the question to begin to feel a shift. Only the ego wants to know the answer. If you're still in a funk, then ask, Hey body, what awareness are you sharing with me? Or, What awareness am I avoiding? What's the gift in experiencing this now?

2.  Don't react.

Reaction indicates that you are judging what you are experiencing. For example, you may be judging that someone is wrong in a particular situation. Instead of going there, just say to yourself, They have an interesting point of view, and I have an interesting point of view. This helps you to stop taking what's happening between you so seriously and personally. If you do react, please don't beat yourself up. Be kind and just laugh it off.

3.  Accept, rather than resist.

Be neutral. Be like Teflon and let what negativity or judgment that is coming your way, slide right past you. Don't let it land with you.

4.  Forgive yourself.

Forgive yourself for any transgression or neglect that has been displayed toward your Higher Self.

5.  Choose a different perspective.

Take action by choosing another perspective. If you let the negativity land with you, you are choosing to take it seriously and to engage with it.  Instead, choose something else. Ask yourself, What do I choose to experience now?

6.  Let it go

Release it by making it part of your past. Stay present. Be in faith and trust that you are a divine and infinite being. Each new moment is your chance to play and create something new.

7.  Be grateful.

Be thankful for this experience. Thank your body for giving you more awareness.

Here is a list of positive emotions or states of mind that you can now focus on:

  • Acceptance: Everything is what it is.
  • Energy: All that life is made up of.
  • Joy: How you were born into this life.
  • Creativity: What you came here to experience — to create upon create.
  • Tranquility: A choice that is always possible.

  • Harmony: When you are in fluidity with your Highest Self.
  • Health: Being in the state of congruency with life.

Each new moment is your chance to play and create something new.
