Emotional maturityWe have been talking about two different ways of being in this blog. Compulsive thinking is the one most people are familiar with. Basically, all that you need to do is to be unconscious about everything, thoughts, body signs, intuition, life. When we are in this state, we are not able to understand the infinite intelligence that supports life. If you take a look around, you will realize that there is a vast source of intelligence out there, someone or something responsible for the creation, diversity of life in this planet, the way all forms of life cooperate with each other to create this harmonious ecosystem in which all of us live.

When we become unable to connect with anything but the compulsive thought, we start to think of us as victims, incapable of controlling our destiny or to create the life that we want. We just accept whatever “life” brings us. We haven’t realized the importance of developing emotional intelligence because almost all of us suffer from the same problem. Even worst, most people wouldn’t agree to read a book with the word “emotion” in the title!

The second way is to be emotionally intelligent. What are emotions? The reaction of our thoughts in the body. If you have read some of the previous posts, you will realize that learning how to work with emotions is even easier than learning how to work with your mind and also have more advantages. While compulsive thinking is all about the mind and about what “we think” of the rest of the world, emotional intelligence activates another type of intelligence that we are not familiar with because we have never explored it.

Emotions don’t lie. You can tell what is happening in your head because of the way you feel. They are a guidance system. Developing emotional intelligence means to become aware of our body, sensations, feelings, and as a result we are withdrawing excessive attention from the conscious mind. It’s about understanding the messages that our body and intuition are trying to communicate. So why is this so important? Because by learning more about our emotions, we can stop negative thought’s patterns and change them for positive ones, we can break bad habits, we can reprogram our brain to get the results that we want, we can connect with our inner self, improving our creativity, peace, happiness, etc.
