To practice mindfulness is to become conscious of emotions associated to our thoughts and feelings. If negative associations are not checked, and corrected, they are packed in our emotional baggage and carried from place to place and person to person.
It is important to assess the why behind the emotions we pack away behind the lining of our hearts and minds. For then and only then can we uncover, unpack, forgive and let go of hurtful memories before they make us sick.
Make it your daily practice to put down your emotional baggage, open your heart and mind long enough to see what’s inside. You may find some thoughts and feelings are just not worth carrying around anymore. Is it time to unpack and heal?
