How to Transform Uncomfortable Emotions & Find The Root of Your Problems

The Art of Emotional Alchemy


“Emotion” (n): a conscious mental reaction subjectively experienced as strong feeling usually directed toward a specific object and typically accompanied by physiological and behavioral changes in the body

How do you deal with uncomfortable emotions?

How do you heal yourself?

How do you restore balance in your life?

How do you bounce back from emotional self-sabotage?


In life, as we experience issues/problems we can become very emotional. We can get lost in our emotions and feelings to the point where we lose our sense of rational thought. Emotionally charged thoughts can cause clouded/irrational thoughts because your energy is moving in many different directions, and may not be grounded.

When you become irrational…

  • You lose the ability to think clearly
  • You make poor decisions
  • You’re unable to zoom out and clearly see the context of your life

What’s the difference between emotions & feelings?

  1. Emotions: surge (sudden, quick, instant)

2. Feelings: flow (subtle, long lasting, build over time)


To become a MasterMIND you need to understand and be able to IDENTIFY and TRANSFORM your emotions.

Q- How do you transform your emotions?

To transform your EMOTIONS, you must shift the ENERGY in your body.

Law of the Conservation of Energy: Energy cannot be created or DESTROYED; it can only be CHANGED from one form to another.

A- Transforming Energy = Emotion + Thought

Emotions = the fuel of thoughts

Thoughts = fed by emotional energy
