In order to create healthy, happy and harmonious reality we all desire, we will need to create emotional harmony.
This process can be divided into six basic steps:
1. Recognize our emotions. 2. Accept them as they are. 3. Release them when necessary. 4. Understand how they are created. 5. Transform negative ones through understanding and create more positive ones. 6. Transcend them.
Here we will present a short profile of some of basic emotions. We have developed specific questionnaires for understanding each one.
As this book would have become prohibitively large if we included them here, those who are seriously seeking to understand themselves can download these questionnaires from our web site at http://www.HolisticHarmony.com/research/emotions.html. (for members ? but membership is free)
Answering those questions will help you discover how those emotions are created and how you might transform them.
ANXIETY AND WORRY
Anxiety and worry, although obviously forms of fear, have become so common that it is worth looking at them separately.
Anxiety often concerns factors of time and results. We are anxious because we fear that we will not have enough time to complete all that we have planned, or that result will not be successful, perfect or acceptable to others.
We worry often for same reasons, but also when we fear something may not turn out as we hope. That "something" may concern ourselves, our children, or our parents or spouse, which of course, ultimately, through our attachment to these people, has to do with ourselves.
We learn to worry as children, and this becomes a habit causing us to search for issues to be anxious or worrisome about, even when there is nothing really important enough to merit such a concern.
We may wonder at times why our mind thinks so much about a particular matter, creating anxiety and worry, when in reality that matter is not so important to us.
Anxiety and worry contain a feeling of danger, that we are unable to achieve what we want or protect ourselves from others or events. It is a form of self-doubt and lack of faith in ourselves, others and Divine Laws of universe.
