Being trained in NLP and Emotional Intelligence both, I noticed lately that I have been applying a lot more the technqiues used in Emotional Intelligence during this tragic time in human history. I personally have lost a mentor, a few friends, and relatives due to the Covid 19 pandemic. I have mourned their losses but understand that in Emotional Intelligence we discuss the concept of the leaky cell. This is a concept where when we notice we are leaky we consciously try to find out where we are leaking and heal ourselves to become whole again.
When someone passes, they is no way to effectively deal with that loss but to grief and mourn. But I am conscious enough to not engage in conversations about it from an unresourceful place as I don’t want my emotions to hinder or affect another person, which would be acting like a leaky cell. Usually, I’m leaky, when someone complains about their job or relationship or family and I could instinctively reply “During this time at least your alive and have a job and have family you can argue with.” But this would only add fuel to the fire, and it is not assisting the person directly with their unresourceful behavior. I prefer to practice Emotional intelligence and remain quiet and count my own personal blessings.
Emotional boundaries are real and it is important we
understand them with Emotional Intelligence and learn how to set up those
boundaries and not vomit our emotions on someone who may not be equipped to
handle our grief or sadness. They may be personally facing their own situations
so I need to process out what I am going through find the resources that I must
bring about a positive change an realign my thinking from being a victim to
someone people can depend on during this challenging time. Understanding
emotional states and can step out of one state and into another is something I
learned in Emotional Yoga. It is s
possible that we allow ourselves to shift from sadness to happiness and/or to
shift from grief to joy. The brain is an amazing tool when we use it. Not
denying the emotion exists but stepping into it consciously and with mere
acceptance is a powerful tool. Then after some time stepping out into a more
resourceful emotion is the agenda. This is not only for myself but for my
network and those who depend on me. These are some of the practical tools I
learned in Emotional Intelligence that I use now more than ever before.
