The primary emotional systems are the systems activated under secondary feelings like anxiety, guilt, shame; and symptoms like avoidance, disconnection, eating problems, addictions, compulsions and obsessions, to name just a few.
In these webinars we focus on three factors, to disentangle anxiety and ways of coping from the underlying emotional systems. These are:
- being here in this present moment, where we can change and grow. We honour the past and future, but hold a clear focus on the present moment - the only opportunity we have to learn.
- noticing when our body is in a place where we can learn. For this we need to know if we should regulate anxiety down or increase activation to get out of our comfort zone as necessary. And the bodily signals are not always what you would expect.
- making room for the emotions underneath that are trying to help guide your way. There are just seven emotional systems and they are activated in some way all the time. And yet, they can be completely unconscious, out of our awareness for years on end.
Your primary emotional systems drive so many of your actions. The more we are aware of them, the more clearly we can see our life choices and the future unfolding ahead of us. If they remain unconscious, our anxiety can increase or our disconnection from the world can intensify.
We don't tell you what to do, for your particualr situation, but...
We help you pay careful and caring attention to you, so you can find your way forwards. The data collection that you do every day will give you powerful information to guide you. The three factors that we focus on help you collect data effectively, to guide your mind and guide your life; to facilitate the change you need to live your life in a way that truly alligns with your deep capability.
