All of your emotions - especially your strongest and most difficult feelings - are storehouses of unlimited energy and astounding wisdom. For instance, your rage can give you superhuman strength, your fear can save you from certain death, and your shame and depression can bring you to a complete (and often necessary) halt. Imagine what you could accomplish if - instead of repressing your emotions and losing your energy, or expressing them haphazardly and losing your way - you could marshal their energies and use them to increase your awareness, heal your relationships, and address your deepest wounds.
Emotional Genius takes you on a healing journey that delves, chapter , into each of the cultural impediments to true emotional agility - our misunderstanding of genius (it's not more intelligence), our disavowal of our emotional way of knowing (our empathy), our disconnection from the quaternary of elements that can make us whole and functional people, our overemphasis on unbalanced intellectual knowledge (our minds can only function properly when we have open access to our emotions, our spiritual awareness, and our grounded physicality), and the startling connection between unhealed trauma and the state of our present-day world. From that empathic understanding of the deep trouble all around us, a brilliant new view of emotional incapacity, avoidance behaviors, addictions, distractions, isolation, trauma, and dissociation emerges - and then leads to the specific healing and balancing practices that address these troubles and make emotional genius (and genius in every area of life) possible.
With the support of these self-healing and balancing practices, readers can then enter the territory of the emotions with their feet under them and their wits about them - and learn about the exquisite energy, information, and wisdom inside each of their emotions - the Honorable Sentry of Anger; The Profound Mirror of Hatred; the Water Bearer of Sadness; the Deep River of Grief; the Communion of Joy; The Intuitive Energy of Fear; the Frozen Fire of Panic and Terror; the Relational Radar of Jealousy and Envy; the Masking States of Apathy and Confusion; the Emotional Physics of Stress and Resistance; and why Love is not an emotion at all!
Each emotion is explored in empathic terms, which includes an explanation of the energy inside the emotion, what happens when it becomes trapped or overemphasized, how it works within the psyche, how it should work with your other emotions (and why it doesn't), specific practices and questions to help you welcome, work with, and honor that emotion - and suggestions for how to honor that emotion in others (even if they don't know how to honor it in themselves).
In this groundbreaking new work, empath Karla McLaren leads you on a step-by-step journey out of emotional confusion, energy loss, and suffering, and helps you discover your soul's deepest language and your own innate Emotional Genius.
