Emotional Intelligence

e·mo·tion·al in·tel·li·gence

  • the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.
  • “emotional intelligence is the key to both personal and professional success”.

Consider this the toolbox; Whether your focus is out of sight or sleeping, it is always present.

These are tools that can be used to manage emotional intelligence;

  • Emotional awareness, including the ability to identify your own emotions and those of others.
  • The ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like problem solving and thinking.
  • The ability to manage emotions, including the ability to regulate your own emotions, and the ability to cheer up or calm down another person.

Their is wicked truth in learning how to activate these aspects within yourself and move through them with ease and stability.

It is a practice much like meditation. The practice is more specific though and can be very profound. Adjusting just minor thought patterns and “self-talk” can start opening you up to your truest self.

The Art of Awareness;

Rather subtle in focus or rapid, the acknowledgement of your presence, the YOU right now. Well that’s where it starts, by unfolding the layers, and questioning all of them. Minor adjustments to your focus and surroundings helps to evolve the awareness further. We are all wired to believe; if I do this, then I get that. Well you can have all of it by focusing on the moments, creating goodness, and setting positive intentions.

The projection of self is more amplified by the ego, alleviate the existence of the “ EGO” and you start to diminish the patterns that are holding you back. What are they holding you back from, you might ask? Everything, self-love, passionate love and kindness to others in a non-material way. The ego burns into ashes, it clashes with the true self identity and it makes mistakes that don’t serve you!

BE aware of what you are presenting to the outer world. You get back what you give out! The work is noticing those moments in between, is where the true magic start to evolve. The tricks our minds play on us are the essentials tools to waking up, being present and fearing nothing but yourself! Inside yourself is the key to unlocking your awareness to better help guide your emotional intelligence. DON’T BELIEVE IT? THEN TRY IT!

Unlock Your Emotional Genius

Successful intelligence requires that we know how to put our intellectual best foot forward. Sometimes this means having just plain common sense, or “street smarts.” Successful intelligence also involves having “emotional intelligence,” also called “EI,” which is being able to read people’s feelings- and your own.

With high EI, you can succeed in many areas of your life. Your close relationships can benefit from knowing how to read people’s feelings, regulate your own emotions (especially anger), and understand what you’re feeling, and why.

How FOCUS can change ANYONE’s Thought Patterns about Emotional Intelligence

There are two kinds of FOCUS.

1: The inner awareness of our thoughts and our feelings, and applying that in managing our frustrations by focusing on our goals.

2: A focus on others, to emphasize and perceive them, so you can enable yourself to have effective interactions and relationships.

The Socially Savvy

Can emotional intelligence, the ability to perceive, understand and manage emotions, be learned?

Optimistically speaking, YES people can learn a richer emotional vocabulary and they can self-mechanize their emotions better.

Perception and cognitive assimilation of emotions helps us to introduce charisma, friendliness and basic social skills. Raising your intelligence will raise your IQ and keep your social interactions sharp.

Shifting Awareness

Our perception creates our reality. Like a child wounds runs deep in our memories of thought. They are not only stored in our emotions, but often rooted in our physical body.

In order to release these attachments you must substitute one thought with another. You also need to take care of the issues that rise in physical form.

Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life said it best,“You have the power to heal your life, and you need to know that. We think so often that we are helpless, but we’re not. We always have the power of our minds…Claim and consciously use your power.”
