Do You Have Emotional Intelligence?


How is Your Emotional Intelligence?

Can you walk through life knowing how to read people well?  You don’t have to be “psychic” in order to have emotional intelligence. In fact, all that you must do is to be willing to understand how people feel. You can often read a person’s body language and know what they are going through. 

If someone is walking into the office feeling sad, you may assume that they had a rough night of arguing with their romantic partner.  You may have felt that they are sad about a loved one dying or perhaps taking advantage of them. There are many reasons why a person would be sad.

However, doing something about it is what usually makes the difference.  If you can sit down with a total stranger and talk to them about what is troubling them, you have a high emotional intelligence. You an relate to someone that is hurting and perhaps not having a good day.  When you show someone else that you care about them, they often thank you for being there for them. Most people in today’s world don’t have a high emotional intelligence.  If you have a way of understanding people well, you are a blessing to other people’s lives.

How it Your Emotional Health?

Do you wake up feeling sad every day?  If so, this means that your emotional health is not in a good state.  You should consult a psychic, life coach or perhaps therapist to give you a helping hand. 

Anything can make you feel sad.  It can be a job loss, a relationship problem or perhaps someone died. Working through your grief takes time.  You often need to have someone around you that can boost up your emotions.  You need to have someone that can put a smile on your face.

If you feel that your emotional health is in a bad state, it doesn’t have to stay that way.  There is an answer to your problem. Every problem has a solution. Just because you haven’t found it yet, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. It often takes years for someone to find themselves.  It takes time for people to see their own inner light. At times, you need to write down in a journal what you are feeling and why.  In this way, you get to see what you are putting yourself through and what you can do in order to find your own inner peace.

Here is a List of Feelings

  • Anger
  • Happiness
  • Worry
  • Sorrow
  • Fear
  • Care
  • Joy
  • Trust
  • Disgust
  • Shock

Are You an Empathetic Person?

You are an empathetic person if you can feel love for someone that needs it the most.  Empathy is something that a lot of people don’t have in today’s world. We live in an “its all about me” driven society.  Finding someone that can give you love, and adoration is someone that you should keep in your life.

Often in relationships, we find that men and women often want to express themselves and have a hard time doing that.  You may find that it’s hard to come out of your shell and say what you feel.

If you are the kind of person that wants to tell someone else what you are thinking, then you are not alone. It’s important to always show someone compassion.

If you are in a relationship that requires a lot of your time, you might feel that it doesn’t always feel good.  You may feel stressed and overwhelmed by the needs of your partner. Its important to tell them that you are going to be there for them.  Show them what you feel and what you want to see happen.

If you are wanting to give someone your heart, it’s important to lay out what you want to offer. You should always be willing to offer yourself in such a way that makes complete sense to your partner. 

It’s important to learn how to trust and to give of oneself.  When you do this, doors begin to open for you. Learn how to open yourself up to someone that is going to show you that you are worthy of their time and space.

Emotional expression has a lot to do with being empathetic.  If you can express how you really feel, consider that to be a gift.  Many men and women today find that its hard to express themselves. They often feel shut down emotionally and don’t want to talk about what is happening inside of them. It’s important to check your emotional stability and see if you can express how you feel.

If you can’t express how you really feel, then its important for you to do some prayer, meditation and reading spiritual books to open your third eye and root chakra.  Your root chakra affects all the areas of your life. You have 7 chakras that often need cleansing on a day to day basis. 

Expressing Feelings Takes Time

It takes time to be able to express to someone how you feel.  You will often find that when you are trying to express yourself to someone, they don’t always tell you that they are interested in hearing what you have to say. Not everyone is going to be as receptive to hearing you out. 

If you are trying to learn how to express your feelings, that can take time. Often, you feel closed down and need to learn that its okay to say what you feel.  You may have become closed because you grew up in a home where feelings were said to be not talked about.  Perhaps you felt your parents telling you to not say all that much. Maybe they wanted you to keep your opinions to yourself and not say anything.

I once had a friend that was told not to talk during dinner time. His family would sit around and eat food without talking at the dinner table. I knew that therefore he couldn’t express himself as an adult.

Often as children, out parents set the example. If they are not communicating their feelings, its most likely that you will not be able to do so as an adult either.  Your emotional intelligence does get affected by the way that your parents have communicated with you. 

Is Love an Emotion?

Yes, love is an emotion. When you feel emotion, you often have a sudden burst of wanting to be with someone. You may often feel that its hard to live your life without ever bonding with someone that is going to be close to you.

It’s important to always look at your life and feel that you can easily go to a whole new level from within. I like the fact that people can have love and show it in different ways.

If you want to express the emotion of love, its best to do it with words and actions. You can tell someone that you love them or simply give them a gift that expresses your love. When someone gets married, they often show it by offering a ring or some type of jewelry to express how they feel.  This is often the first step in showing someone that you care for them a lot. 

You need to look at your own heart and see that you must find yourself and what you are truly wanting to achieve in your life. Sometimes, you will find that its easier to express yourself to people that you care about the most.

If you just met someone that you are fond of, it may be hard to tell them that you have a “love at first sight” feeling for them.  In fact, most people don’t talk about their emotions at first. They tend to keep their feelings under “lock and key” in case that person doesn’t feel the same way about them. 

There is nothing more devastating then feeling rejection from someone that you are attracted to and in love with. Sometimes its best to wait to express yourself if you feel that you might get rejected.

Feeling emotional is a part of everyday life. Everyone feels a certain level of emotion when they are bonding with someone that cares about them.  They often want to come and express themselves because they can see a future with that person. 

Everyone Has Emotional Needs

Everyone has emotional needs that must be met daily.  If a person doesn’t feel any emotion for someone, its because they are locked up inside and don’t know how to express themselves. Sometimes, it takes a friend or lover to open that person up. It’s important to focus on your emotional needs because it often leads you to seeing who you are as a person and where you stand in life.

We often have more needs to express our emotion when something happens for the positive or the negative. If you win the lottery, you will want to express happy emotions. If someone steals your car, you will express feelings of anger and remorse. You will feel like something has been taken from you and it won’t be a good feeling. 

It’s important to think about your emotions and how you look at yourself.  The way that you see yourself is often how emotional you will become daily.

Getting Emotional Healing

It’s important to heal your emotions through chakra cleansing and meditation.  Try to meditate every day for at least 15 minutes. When you do that, you will begin to see that many doors begin to open for you. You will begin to see old friends starting to “pop back up in your life” and you will feel a sense of happiness and inner peace. 

Its important to talk out your feelings as much as you can. When you do this, you begin to see that the spirit world has something good in store for you. You need to see that you can work up to doing something that makes you feel happy.  I would say to talk to a friend or spiritual counselor when you need direction.  We often need to do this stuff when we feel that its necessary to learn more about what brings happiness into our lives.

Types of Anger

  • Getting Mad
  • Rage
  • Anger with revenge intentions
  • Holy and righteous anger
  • Violent outbursts

Everyone Has Negative Feelings About Something

In life, we all go through stages in which we feel angry and in need of releasing it.  If you feel negative about something, its important to tell someone what is on your mind and what you are experiencing and going through. It’s important that when you feel negative, to not hold in your emotions. 

Bottled up emotions often make us feel angrier and like we must take out revenge. Sometimes bottled up energy can cause us to have more stress. 

When you feel your negative energy reaching a peak, tell someone bout it. Let someone know that you can’t take it anymore and that you have had enough. 

It’s important to let go of things that you cannot change. Know inside of your heart that you won’t always get things going your way.  You can just sit back and relax.  You can easily do this by putting on some soothing and relaxing meditation music. I like to listen to beach waves flowing.  Others prefer to listen to relaxing piano music in the background.  No matter what you feel, you will know that everything takes its time to come together.  It’s important that you see life for what it is and to learn how to listen to what is going to happen with you overall. It’s important to take life in stride and to always look at what works out the best for you. 

If you happen to get overly emotional, you need to find a way to calm yourself down. Often when you are overly emotional, you tend to say things that you don’t mean.
