Quotes by Maria Mar

When your Emotional Undertow drags you back, you never get to the shore of your Dream.

Think about it…

When you feel that you are swimming against the current, that your goal or dream is moving farther away… what do you do?

If you are like most people, you swim harder and faster. You struggle and work harder because that’s what you’ve learned to do.

In fact, surrendering is the solution.

Surrendering ~not in defeat, not to give up or conform~ but to listen, to allow whatever resistance force is working invisibly in the depth to come up and become visible and tangible.

What you find out often is that the force is your Emotional Undertow.

This is the quagmire of old, toxic emotions that have been repressed and driven into your subconscious, becoming an emotional swamp.

These muddy waters are activated any time a familiar trigger is pressed. Then all the feelings you’ve accumulated of similar situations and past experiences with their old, repressed emotional responses is agitated within you and begins to pull you down and under, away from your goal.

The overwhelming emotional debris, added to whatever similar emotions you are feeling at the present, becomes an emotional vortex that pulls you back from the shores of your dream.

When you stop struggling, fighting, resisting and reacting; you begin to listen. You can then recognize the energies that belong to the past. You can release them. You can recognize the emotions that arise from the present. You can listen to ascertain what they are saying. You can then channel those emotions creatively.

These emotions, without the Emotional Undertow, become streams through which you can surf gracefully to your dream.
