February 7, 2018 Get Curious about the Message This Emotion Is Offering You

Remember the power of changing emotional states? If you put yourself in a state of mind where you truly are feeling curious about learning something, this is an immediate pattern interrupt to any emotion and enables you to learn a great deal about yourself. Getting curious helps you master your emotion, solve the challenge, and prevent the same problem from occurring in the future.

As you begin to feel the emotion, get curious about what it really has to offer you. What do you need to do right now to make things better? If you’re feeling lonely, for example, get curious and ask, “Is it possible that I’m just misinterpreting the situation to mean that I’m alone, when in reality I have all kinds of friends? If I just let them know I want to visit with them, wouldn’t they love to visit with me as well? Is my loneliness giving me a message that I need to take action, reach out more and connect with people?”

Here are four questions to ask yourself to become curious about your emotions:

What do I really want to feel?

What would I have to believe in order to feel the way I’ve been feeling?

What am I willing to do to create a solution and handle this right now?

What can I learn from this?

As you get curious about your emotions, you’ll learn important distinctions about them, not only today, but in the future as well.
