How to Transform Negative Emotions

Sep 19, 2011-- "The word emotion comes from the Latin emovere, meaning to 'move through or out.' So in its original form, there isn't any trace of clinging to, or rejecting, these movements.

In short order, the guests take over the house, leaving us reeling and unable to truly be in control. So how do we turn this unhelpful pattern around? The key to any pattern is repetition. But in the case of such reactivity, this repetition is actually happening below the radar of our conscious mind.
