Emotional intelligence and Empathy

Being aware of another person’s emotional state and having empathy towards how they are feeling is part of being emotionally intelligent.

This is a skill that can be learnt if a person wishes to learn.

Also if someone is in a challenging emotional state, in order to help someone first you must be self aware of your emotions.

The ability to perceive and control emotions is absolutely necessary in day to day life.

This will also provide a tool kit that will lead to success in both personal and business life as it can aid you in building stronger relationships to achieve your goals.

Often it can be difficult in day to day life to understand or take the time out in relation to understanding another persons situation and how they are feeling.

In the words of Aristotle
“Anyone can be angry that is easy, but to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time for the right purpose and in the right way isn’t easy”

Anyone who is in tune with their emotions are capable of expressing emotions in an appropriate way, whilst having the capability of having a listening ear and showing empathy to another persons situation.

There are five elements of emotional intelligence.

Self Awareness

This is about understanding your emotions, what you are feeling and why and to be able to understand how they effect others around you. It’s a basis of good intuition and decision making helping you instinctively to make the right choices. Self awareness also helps you understand your strengths and weaknesses.

Self regulation

Once you are aware of your emotions, the next step is learning how to manage them, especially the negative emotions. Learning to meditate and staying calm in any situation. Also to master these emotions especially when feeling stressed or you feel like having an emotional outburst, learning to stay calm, staying true to yourself and taking responsibility for you actions are all part of self regulation.

Motivation
This is about your drive to improve and stay focused and setting standards to achieve your goals. Motivation should be taking initiative and being open to opportunities that come your way.

Empathy
Empathy is the ability to understand another person’s situation and seeing it from their point of view. By having an awareness of others feelings its important that you acknowledge their feelings even if you do not agree. Effectively it is showing respect to another persons point of view and having an understanding of their situation.

Social skills
People who deal with other people well are often described as a ‘people person’. A person that does this is often see as trustworthy team players and confident communicators. Also they are a good listener to other people as they are at speaking themselves. When a person is like this they make great leaders, where they inspire and motivating people by giving praise and resolving conflict if necessary.

Happy New Year 2021

Happy New Year from everyone at Crystal Heart Psychics for 2021.

Well what a year 2020 has been:

We have seen:
Australian Bush fires
Civil unrest
Global pandemic

2020 has certainly been a challenging year for all of us. We are currently living in testing times and we at Crystal Heart Psychics are there to help you with a friendly voice and a listening ear if you feel some of that uncertainty is overwhelming.

Many people have been a little reserved in wishing people a Happy New Year, but taking the positives from 2020, we have learned to adapt and change as a society and this has been good for us, work life balance for some not all has been restored.

Stronger relationships have been formed and other relationships have been put to the test, this enables us to decide who to keep in out lives with positive relationships and who to let go of in relation to negative relationship.

2021 seems to be bringing in a softer energy, it feels like an energy with a can do attitude and a more positive mental mindset. 2021 is feeling like a year of triumph for the UK and the rest of the world.

It feels that Jan – March 2021 will be transitional in the light that better things are to come.

June – August feel that we have greater freedom, but there will still be restrictions these will be less so than previously.

2021 will be about standing on our own two feet again.
