Emotional Intelligence

Hi, I’m Jody King-Colegrove with Quantum Techniques. Today, I’m talking about defining emotional intelligence and how to grow it. Here’s a few ideas that I have:

The first is practice deep breathing. That’s what meditation is. Doing even just a little bit of yoga each morning, like sun salutations, will get you breathing in and out. Also, just sitting quietly, and taking maybe five deep breaths in and out, is a way of giving your body the ability to oxygenate the blood, help release stress and anxiety, exhaustion, and even suppression. Try adding that to your morning workout routine; deep breathing will help you to get in touch with your true being. It’s best to do this first thing in the morning.

The next thing is practicing self-compassion. Many times we have that critical voice that comes into our brain. When it arrives, first it’s important to recognize it – be aware of it and say “Stop. Hey, maybe I am telling myself something that I shouldn’t be.” Having the awareness to stop it is critical. Then I say, “Thank you for coming – now, be on your way.” At least acknowledge that it was present, rather than trying to avoid it.

When you notice critical self-talk creeping in, think about what a friend would say if you were sharing that information with them. Would they be as critical? Typically they would not. They might say, “Hey, no, don’t think about that.”, or “I’d think about it this way.” Usually you get a loving, kind statement from a friend. Be aware that each one of us is our own worst critic, instead of being our best lover and accepting who we are.

The third way to grow emotional intelligence is to ‘talk it out’. It sounds strange, but when we do talk out our thoughts, we are able to identify that, “Hey, I’m actually thinking this. This is actually something that I’m telling myself that may or may not be true.” There’s many ways you can do that. Often it’s praying out loud, or talking out loud, as you’re on a walk. Another form is to journal what you’re thinking. By writing thoughts down it will help you realize, “Wow, that’s what I’ve written. Do I really believe that?” I am very God-centered, so I create a journal to God. I find that when I’m writing a question at the beginning of the journal entry, by the time I get to the end and I’ve written out all my thoughts, I have the answer. For me, this has always been amazing and very therapeutic and I hope that it could help you too. But if you don’t want to write, you can also simply take a walk and talk it out and that can work just as well.

These are suggestions for those who want to become more emotionally intelligent and being aware of checking in with yourself and being in the moment. When you are aware, you’re going to be in the light and thereby, healing. That’s really important.

About Jody King Colegrove

Life has it’s up’s and down’s; my life is no exception. After being married several years my husband and I discovered that we were having difficulty getting pregnant. I had always been the kind of person that when I put my mind to it I can achieve anything. My favorite quote was “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it”, by William Arthur Ward. With this issue I had hit a wall. We did the traditional medical treatments of In Utero Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). The egg would not attach to the uterine wall on the 26th day of my cycle because the receptor site had been turned off because of a previously used contraceptive. Not being able to get pregnant, what every other woman can do easily, really made me feel like I was not a women. I started pulling away from people and friends. We started working with Quantum Techniques to heal not only my body, but the trauma of going through all the procedures, the disappointment, and the emotional pain of wanting something so bad and not being able to make my body perform. After working with Steve Daniel and clearing the physical and non physical issues, I got pregnant five months later. This was such a profound healing in my life that I wanted to share Quantum Techniques with others, so I became a practitioner. I have worked with people regarding Anxiety, Headaches/ Migraines, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Weight loss, Addictions, Fungal infections, Depression, Insomnia, Thyroid problems, Broken bones, Warts, Skin issues, Allergies and Sensitivities, Babies and Animals, Dental issues, Sexual Abuse, Environmental Illness, Hormone Imbalance, Phobias/Fears, ect., just to name a few. I found Quantum Techniques to be extremely helpful in raising my son. Whether it was breast feeding, colic, getting him to sleep through the night, bed wetting, potty training, and food sensitivities, Quantum Techniques has helped every step of the way. Several years ago, I broke my leg skiing. I went through two surgeries; one to set the leg and one to remove scar tissue. I spent 5 months in physical therapy. During this time, I used Quantum Techniques to increase the speed of healing my leg and to reduce the pain and inflammation during recovery. I also needed to heal the emotional pain of not being able to walk for 3 months and to live life the way I was used to living it with movement and vitality. I had a great surgeon repair my broken leg. It was wonderful to also have the power of Quantum Techniques to ease my pain and maximize my body’s natural healing abilities. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Architecture from Pacific Union College in California. I live in Flagstaff, Arizona with my husband, Don, son, Avery, and Golden Retriever, Copper. I love traveling, learning, exercising, and gardening. Before joining the Quantum Techniques team I worked as a Real Estate Agent, Property Manager, and most recently as the Owner of a company building high end custom homes. I have Massage training, which includes Reflexology, Asian Medicine, Nutrition, and Herbology. I have training in Dona Eden’s Energy methods, Life Skills by Ron and Nancy Rockey, Laurel Melin’s Emotional Brain Training (EBT or Solutions), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) by Gary Crag, Mark Hyman’s Ultra Mind Solution, and Guy Finley’s teachings. I teach people how to take care of their health and happiness. As we live life we encounter toxins and traumas in our life. These affect our health and keep us trapped in life repeating the same stress or lesson until we learn how to get out of the loop. I would love to share with you how Quantum Techniques can impact your life so you can get back your health and happiness.
