We all have feelings. And I have a lot of them. In fact, I have so many feelings, my feelings have feelings. Today, we’re going to talk about—yep, you guessed it—feelings and the appropriate (and important) role they have in our lives. Chip Dodd, bestselling author of The Voice of the Heart and other brilliant books, joins us to talk about feelings, vulnerability and the responsibility we all have to own them. Then, we’ll pull out our journals as we process our emotions and feelings.
How to Understand Your Feelings
Whenever we face an issue or problem, it’s easy to try to fix the issue at the surface level. But what’s interesting is that often times, what’s on the surface of the issue isn’t even the problem itself. No matter what the problem is, there’s always a root. But you have to be willing to uncover it layer by layer by layer. And if you can get to that deeper layer—if you link it to the root of what's really going on—you can solve it. It’s there that you can find healing, deeper communication, intimacy and connection.
The question you need to be asking yourself and others is simple: Why? And then keep repeating it until you get to the root. You’ll sound a little like a broken record, but you know what? It works. Keep asking why. It's going to bring you to the core of what's going on inside you. It's an effective coaching technique, but it also helps you become self-aware and build closer relationships with every single person around you.
What Most People Don’t Realize About Their Feelings with Chip Dodd
Chip Dodd, author of the amazing book The Voice of the Heart, is here with me today to talk about the import role of feelings in our lives.
Chip and I talk about:
What Emotions Are You Feeling Right Now?
“Jesus wept.” — John 11:35 (NIV)
I don't know about you, but to me, it’s so moving to consider that Jesus had feelings. Jesus wasn't an emotional iceberg. He had feelings, highs and lows, emotions and pulls. Just before that verse, it says Jesus “was deeply moved in spirit and troubled” (John 11:33, NIV). And then He wept. I want share that with you today as an encouragement that you're not alone.
So, I've got some journal questions for you as you process your own emotions and feelings right where you are.
