Navigating Emotional Waters 🌊✨


by Mandee Elam


(Medicine Woman of the Soul/Co-Founder and GIC at Sea Goddess Healing Arts)


Aww man feelings. When they come, they can be big and often not at an ideal time. Loss, grief, pain, breakups, anxiety, stress, anger, jealousy, resentment, overwhelm...the list goes on. You all know how they feel. We're taught to be afraid of our feelings. More often than not when someone starts to cry, others will show up like oh no! How can I make it better? Please don't cry. I'm sure you've heard it before and said it yourself. At Sea Goddess Healing Arts we like to say tears are healing waters that water your soul garden. 


Feelings are a huge part of our emotional regulatory system and overall well-being. It is so important to be real with your feelings. We are really good at ignoring them, shoving them down and allowing them to become problems in our vessels instead of facing them. Louise Hay wrote a wonderful book called You Can Heal Your Life. In it she teaches us that a feeling is a thought in action and a thought can be changed. Louise Hay is pretty much responsible for creating positive affirmations as we know them. 


So often when we dwell on things, we don't realize those thoughts cause our bodies to take the hit. In the back of this book, Louise lists most of the physical symptoms you can feel and the emotions that create those physical symptoms. This one's extreme but she suggests that resentment is the emotion that feeds adult cancer the most. That when we have knee problems, it's often because we're fighting our ego a bit. When we have neck pain, we're not allowing ourselves to see another point of view. It took me a while to swallow all this information, but once I did it was like a breath of life came back into my body and I was hydrated for the first time. I could use my own emotions and my body as a beacon to navigate my mental health and overall wellness. 


For over 10 years I was misdiagnosed with severe Tendonitis when really I had Gout. Gout is a super painful disease that I do not wish on anyone. Louise Hay refers to disease as dis-ease, because there is a dis-ease within the body. When I looked up Gout it said "impatience and need to dominate." My mind was blown. Yes, I'm a leader, but I always tried to be kind, fair and show up as the best employee, friend, and family member that I could. So I sat with my angels and I meditated on it. 


What revealed itself to me blew my mind even more. I was an asshole to myself. I would consistently speak shit all day everyday to myself. Mandee, you're so stupid. Mandee, you're such a fat, ugly, worthless, bitch. How could you even waste your time opening your mouth? No one likes you. You're a fat ugly loser. Worthless piece of shit was my biggest one. The list went on and on. Pretty much anytime I got any sort of put up, I would give myself three put downs. I know I'm not alone in this and I know so many of us fight with ourselves all day everyday.  


So, in 2017 when this book came into my world, I decided to use the affirmation I am peace. I was literally at war with myself. My body was falling apart. My inflammation was at an all-time high and I felt like my life did not match my soul. So I said, I am peace over and over and over all day everyday. Every time a feeling came up that I didn't want to be feeling, I would take a really deep breath and say I am peace. I always let myself honor my true feelings. But when I realize I'm sulking or they're taking up way too much time and energy, then I shift them. It's important we are real with ourselves and then decide what to do with our real. I can't even explain the amount of transformation that happened in my mind, body and soul just by using that one affirmation. I am peace. I was able to zoom out. I was able to create more peace in my body. My body started to heal. My anxiety released and the best part was, I finally started speaking nicely to myself. It allowed me to slow down enough to become mindful of the conversation I was having with myself. So much so that I was able to start rewiring. 


I'm still not even close to perfect. None of us are. However, anytime I catch myself talking shit to myself now. I say stop, pause, out. Then I give myself three put-ups or positive affirmations if you will. Mandee, you are resilient. Mandee, you are creative. Mandee, you are loving. Over the years these have shifted to I am statements. I am wise. I am powerful. I am kind. I still consciously work on this everyday. As many of you know, EFT Tapping is one of my favorite tools to infuse these affirmations. 


When our bodies are screaming at us and our emotions are out of control, it's just your higher self and your soul telling you that things are not in balance. They are asking you to bring them back into balance. We are quick to just blame or try to find a problem outside of ourselves, when most of the time, it's something we can correct with our own thoughts and actions.


As always, I would be honored to hold Soul Space with you and help you to navigate your emotional waters. Big love, always 💗

Looking UP in Awe and Wonder

How To Transmute Emotions


by Ursula Duffy


(Co-Founder and GOO at Sea Goddess Healing Arts, Professional Astrologer and Certified Aromatherapist/Founder, Ursa Alchemy)


I repressed and hid my emotions for more than half my life. This habit was developed from many situations including my familial roots, societal “norms”, being the oldest of four kids, experiencing extreme death trauma at an early age and personal protection. I am sure there are more that could be listed here. Burying emotions for decades is the perfect kindling for unexpected emotional explosions. The first one I experienced was when I was a freshman in college. My freshman year was preceded by my maternal grandmother’s death and a multitude of buried and deeply unprocessed grief stemming from many other situations from high school and before. Add leaving home for the first time, and everything that goes into that, to the top of a festering hot mess running deep inside of me. The trigger was the movie The Princess Bride, which we watched while enjoying some rum and cokes in our dorm room. It seemed like a normal Friday night toward the end of my first Spring semester. The Princess Bride seems innocuous, however for me that night for whatever reason, it sparked the unleashing and spewing of everything from rage to regret to endless grief. I went to bed after my friends left and woke up the next morning with a mangled, bloody right hand and one of the worst feelings of dread I’ve ever felt, oh and an awful hangover.


I have flashes of memories from that night, including punching a cinderblock wall and grabbing glass from a broken lightbulb in one of the dorm bathrooms. The emotional beast was unleashed and it went on a bender. Thankfully, no one saw me as I was roaming the halls on a tear in the middle of the night. I called my friend Liz in the morning to ask her if she knew what happened to my hand. She didn’t, of course. Then the memories started to trickle in and I pieced everything together. It was the end of my Spring semester and I had to manage taking all of my finals with a seriously injured right hand (I’m right-handed), and a broken pinky finger. The scar and crooked finger I still have today are reminders of that night and the learning process that began back then when I was 18. I’m now 43, and still have times when my default mode is to bury, hide and repress. It’s a constant process of recognition and choice that I can share here in hopes that my own method can assist someone else.


Here are the steps I use to feel and transmute my emotions:


  1. Identify the feeling/emotion

  2. What’s the root? Is it from whatever is happening in that moment and/or deeper?

  3. Is it even mine, empathy or someone else’s projection?

  4. FEEL IT regardless and move it through

    1. Anger = Action

    2. Sadness = Tears

    3. Fear = Courage

    4. Disappointment = Analyzing expectations

    5. Etc. Etc. Etc.

  5. Reflect on the process and the lessons

  6. Self-improvement steps for the next time


One of the major themes during Cancer season is feeling, and one of the biggest lessons for Cancerians is emotional maturity and vulnerability. Cancer is the only zodiac sign ruled by the Moon, which represents emotions, dreams, feelings, safety, security and our inner world. One cannot take refuge in the shell forever as in order to grow and mature, one needs to move into a bigger shell. The crab, in my opinion, is by far the best illustration and symbol relative to any other zodiac sign. Staying stuck inside the shell means death. Hiding and repressing emotions can lead to a plethora of dis-eases that can ultimately lead to actual or metaphorical death. In the experience I’m sharing here, hiding and repressing emotions can lead to a trapped emotional juggernaut possessing its host in the middle of the night as it had no other escape route.


Learning how to feel, how to navigate our emotional waters and how to emote are huge lessons of this human form. It’s a very personal and individual experience, and thankfully there are so many tools available to us now to assist. I’m much better at feeling and transmuting now, but there are definitely situations that send me into repeating old patterns. Every time, even with the most minor feelings, it’s a conscious process. If you are reading this, and this is a struggle for you as well, I highly recommend finding tools and developing your own way to transmute your emotions.


I’ve dedicated the entire 4th season of Becoming Chiron to this very topic and discuss more in the intro episode (The Plutonic Process), which you can find below. As always, your natal chart, your natal Moon and your elemental balance (Fire, Air, Earth and Water) hold important information about your personal map to navigating and transmuting your emotional waters, and I’d be honored to be the Cosmic Guide on your team.
