4 Steps to Handling Negative Emotions

Emotions are the names we give our feelings. Good emotions such as happiness and joy are easy to feel and understand. People have trouble processing negative emotions such as anger, jealousy and grief. Negative emotions are more complicated and scary, but they also lead us to examine what is lying underneath the feeling.

Parents have the opportunity to teach children that negative emotions are not necessarily bad because they hold valuable lessons about our experiences. For example, we often react with anger when our children are angry. Instead, we need to allow children to recognize what the anger is attached to, feel its depth, identify how it can be transformed and then learn to release it from their mind and body.

Two Ways of Love

Within the expansion of spiritual awareness comes the concept of love. There are two ways of loving: one is with conditions (which is the way most people show love) and one is without any conditions at all.

Examples of this are when your child does something that you don’t like that limits your ability to love purely, or, when you have an idea of something your child should be, but is not, and you hold back love. This happens all the time, and most people aren’t even aware that they are doing it. We like to think that we strive to give unconditional love.

Loving unconditionally  is the process of allowing children to be who they are and loving exactly what you see in them. It has nothing to do with control and everything to do with freedom. It is the ability to celebrate your child in their uniqueness.
