The emotional body is the connection between the physical world and our mental stability. It is where our experience of the world is harmonized and interpreted. The emotional body represents our feelings and relationship to all things. It is how we react, interpret, and respond to situations and our perceptions of situations whether it is factual or not. The connection between the mental-emotional body is the reason why there are always different sides to a story. If our emotional bodies are unbalanced, any situation is highly probably to be misread and misunderstood. When balanced, it represents centering and acting from the heart space.
The mind can play tricks on you. The fundamental task here is to pay detailed attention to actions and not words. When the emotional body is balanced, we are inclusive, empathetic, open, honest, non-judgmental toward others, and generous with help. There is a desire to give without expecting or wishing to receive something in return. Even though these are reflections of our emotional state of being, it can be validated with scientific, tangible facts. Cortisol, insulin, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone will be more balanced. Blood sugar is more regulated, and the heartbeat is even. Our blood pressure is balanced. Our bodies will not retain water, nor is the body over-dehydrated. Oftentimes, when sickness is manifesting within the physical body, it is a result of an unbalance in the emotional body.
Characteristics with an unbalanced emotional body have a general lack of emotional intelligence or trust. There’s an automatic, constant fear of normal life experiences such as loss and love. An underbalanced emotional body has an overwhelming and dysfunctional concern for self and less empathy for the experience of others. Feelings of drowning or hopeless conclusion of relationships or situations are prevalent. Scientific and tangible outward manifestations can be water retention, obesity, inflexibility, and abnormal sleep patterns. Mentally, it manifests as self-doubt, projection, codependency, gaslighting and other toxic personality traits.
Anything that releases emotion, tension, stress, and anxiety will help balance our emotional bodies. Ultimately, the emotional body comes into great balance when we learn how important it is to balance our hormones. Forgiveness and acts of forgiveness are also crucial. Learning the value of emotional intelligence and not only mental intelligence is central to empathetic and adrenal wellness.
