Day 68 Stuffing Emotions or Using Emotions

There is a difference between stuffing your emotions and controlling your emotions. Stuffing means not recognizing them, not allowing yourself to express how you feel emotionally, feeling that by showing your emotions you are doing something wrong. I think that stuffing is not balance.
Emotions are tools like screwdrivers. The best use for them is to bring happiness joy and love to those around us and thereby attain these things for ourselves and also to propel your intentions forward into manifestation. Now if you hide all your screwdrivers, how can you use them to build that patio? So it is good to see your screwdrivers, to learn what they are, how they work, what they are for and how to use them properly. It takes a bit of practice to learn how to use a screwdriver properly. Sure you can throw it at a wall but that won't do much good. And that is what we do with our emotions. We throw them around and even at each other without realizing that they are actually tools!
Too many people walk through life these days with one driving thought, "how does this make me feel?" They let how they emotionally feel make all their decisions and judgments for them. That is like a baby crying for its bottle! We have so many other ways to determine our decisions and judgments for us. We have life experience, our own beliefs, our own goals and goodness to choose with. Emotions are just screwdrivers. It would be like saying, "what does my screwdriver tell me to do now". ! LOL!
If I gave a screwdriver to every person walking around being led by their emotions we would see everyone talking to a screwdriver constantly! LOL!
So yes, emotions are valuable, as tools! We should learn about them, experience them, learn to use them wisely. Emotions are also part of our sensory equipment. I use my emotions to alert me to negative or positive energetic fields. I have stood in "places of emergence" and just felt what I felt just to feel it. It taught me something more about that place than if I had stuffed my emotions and not used them in that place.
Emotions are tools. We can easily use them for our own good and the good of others. Why didn't anyone teach you this? Good question!
