Minisode Monday #73 | The Positive Intent of Emotion

Welcome to Minisode Monday, where we kick off the week with something quick and actionable — to make you more magnetic and effective — that you can implement right away.

This time around, we examine how even the negative emotions we experience originate as positive intentions on behalf of our subconscious brain — and how we might use this knowledge to understand and better process them.

Let’s get to it!

The Cheat Sheet:

  • Our subconscious communicates with our conscious mind using emotions.
  • Every emotion, no matter how unpleasant, has a positive intent.
  • Sometimes the connection between what we feel and why we feel it isn’t obvious.
  • This week, any time you experience a negative emotion, stop for a second and try to connect the dots — imagine what the positive intention your subconscious brain is trying to communicate might be.
  • Once we determine the positive intent, we can take the proper action to truly process this emotion.
