Episode 46: Emotional Reception

podcast Jan 15, 2020

Do you ever feel as if happiness is fleeting? Are you always waiting for happiness to end or have you wondered to yourself, “what’s the point of even trying to feel better”?

There’s a reason why this happens and it’s because we haven’t fully embraced Emotional Reception.

The irony of happiness is that when we cling TO happiness we shorten the lifetime value OF our happiness when we finally have it.

Learn what it takes to embrace full Emotional Reception and why on a deeper level we actually need and want to feel difficult emotions such as grief, loss, doubt, and even jealousy.
