Welcome back to The becoming the big knee podcast. I'm your host

Speaker:

Djemilah Birnie and you are tuning into minute madness a

Speaker:

little dose of epicness delivered in five minutes or

Speaker:

less.

Speaker:

If you can guys Djemilah Birnie here. And today I wanted to talk

Speaker:

to you about your emotions and your feelings that don't belong

Speaker:

to you Do you know that you are carrying around other people's

Speaker:

feelings, other people's baggage, other people's emotions

Speaker:

with you, every single day.

Speaker:

Everywhere that you go, every person that you interact with,

Speaker:

you are picking up a little bit of their energy, a little bit of

Speaker:

their energy is seeping off, and you're absorbing it. I know,

Speaker:

you've heard of the phrase about a smile and how it's contagious

Speaker:

and how a smile can just spread across the whole room, you

Speaker:

smile, someone sees you smiling, they start smiling, someone else

Speaker:

starts smiling. While this is happening, with all of your

Speaker:

emotions, with all of your feelings and your energy. Now

Speaker:

smile, you can see. So it's a little bit easier to kind of

Speaker:

track. But this is happening with the things that you can't

Speaker:

see as well. So everyone that you interact with every person

Speaker:

that you allow into your energy space, you are picking up a

Speaker:

little bit of their energy, you're picking up just a little

Speaker:

bit of their stuff. So by the end of the day, you're just like

Speaker:

walking around, carrying just like, all this luggage over

Speaker:

stuff, and it doesn't even belong to you. Right? So

Speaker:

how do you know how do you know like, and I feel is this

Speaker:

feeling? Does it belong to me? Or does it belong to someone

Speaker:

else? Well, the way that you're going to discern what emotions

Speaker:

belong to you, and what emotions belong to someone else is by

Speaker:

giving yourself space. By giving yourself space to reflect. This

Speaker:

is one of the reasons why I believe it is so important to

Speaker:

put your phone away an hour, two hours before you go to bed, no

Speaker:

technology, you got to shut it off, you got to stop allowing

Speaker:

the world other people, the collective into your space so

Speaker:

that you can give yourself that time to really process your own

Speaker:

stuff and process. Okay, what did I pick up today? What did I

Speaker:

pick up alone? My way? What am I now carrying around with me?

Speaker:

That doesn't belong to me. Take this time to ground yourself, to

Speaker:

speak to yourself to take out your journal, and reflect on

Speaker:

what it is that you're feeling where you might have picked up

Speaker:

these feelings. If there's not a reason behind it, guess what,

Speaker:

it's probably not yours, probably someone else's. And you

Speaker:

just picked it up. Like we already have enough stuff to

Speaker:

carry around. I don't know about you, but I've got a heavy enough

Speaker:

load on my own. I don't need to be adding way of other people's

Speaker:

emotional baggage onto my psyche. So are you carrying

Speaker:

around other people's emotions? Is that feeling that you're

Speaker:

feeling doesn't even belong to you? Or does it belong to

Speaker:

someone else? Take the time, give yourself space to

Speaker:

completely shut off from the outside stimulus. Because guess

Speaker:

what, most people don't give themselves that space. And then

Speaker:

they're just constantly being bombarded by all of these

Speaker:

opinions, all of these thoughts, all of these things from the

Speaker:

outside world from social media, just like constantly their

Speaker:

friends and family, just like yeah, and then you don't even

Speaker:

have time to process your own stuff. You're just picking up

Speaker:

everybody else's stuff. And you're having to carry all of

Speaker:

their stuff. How are you going to be able to process your

Speaker:

stuff. So

Speaker:

give yourself time. Take a break. Put away all the

Speaker:

technology in the morning. In the evening, give yourself a

Speaker:

time if you can't do an hour, do half an hour if you can't do

Speaker:

half an hour do 10 minutes. Whatever you can do is going to

Speaker:

help it's going to help you process now I highly suggest you

Speaker:

do an hour before you go to bed and an hour when you wake up in

Speaker:

the morning so you can center yourself and really understand

Speaker:

what is your feelings? What are your thoughts? What is it? What

Speaker:

are your intentions for the day? What do you need to carry? Stop

Speaker:

carrying out other people's crap.
