Emotional mastery is about more than control and it has nothing to do with perfection. Emotional mastery is about observation and conscious decision making. It’s about seeing the choices that show up in your reality; in the split second before stress does, in the moment before disharmony is expressed through an argument in your relationship, in the fraction of time before you reach for the drink, the drugs, the man/woman.
Emotional mastery is primarily about a self awareness so potent, you cannot help but see the alternative choices in each state you find yourself. It is about learning to act from that awareness, for your highest possible good. It is about being so evolved that even when you choose the action least aligned with your desired outcome, you stand by it – without shame, without regret, without blame. Emotional mastery is recognising the power of being able to pivot, where your previous self would have stayed stuck. It is the doorway to expansion, the route to true fulfilment.
