Did you know that the ONLY one of our 5 senses that interacts with our emotional brain before our logical brain is your sense of smell? The hippocampus is involved in the formation of memories and can be directly stimulated by scent through the olfactory bulb.
Your emotions are a REFLECTION of your current reality. They serve a PURPOSE, to get our needs met. But, when emotions are overwhelming [or out of proportion], it’s because something from your past is triggered. Emotional IMBALANCE or DISHARMONY is when the intense feelings stay, even AFTER the event has passed.
