Let’s talk about how to turn off your emotions instantly.
Emotionally vulnerable people who fall victim to their emotional state and feel anxious don’t have to live this way.
Emotional maturity and self-regulation help turn off a negative emotion to finally stop feeling anxious.
This post will cover how to elevate your emotions to feel the way you want to feel.
I’m going to compare and contrast two different people and how they respond to the same event in their lives.
You’ll notice opportunities to manage your emotions more closely and learn where your emotional responses arise.
My name is Dr. Jay Cavanaugh of The Vibe Mindset, and we help you elevate your emotions using the power of your thoughts, feelings, and actions.
How to Turn Off Your Emotions
Imagine a mom and dad planning a morning walk,
They awaken to realize it’s raining cats and dogs.
The mother is a very stressed, high-strung person.
She views life through the lens of fear more often than the lens of faith.
She has a tendency to believe that the world isn’t the kindest place.
Mom watches the news every morning, believing the world’s going to hell.
The father’s belief is the world’s a happy place, and everything happens for a reason.
He doesn’t look at life’s challenges as problems; instead, he views them as opportunities to grow and learn.
Now we’ve got two people going through the same experience yet with entirely different belief systems.

How To Turn Your Emotions Off In A Relationship
Relationships offer some of the most intense emotions we can ever experience.
Feeling love is, without question, one of the best feelings a human being can ever have.
Turning off your emotions is different from becoming emotionally numb.
Let me explain.
Painful emotions are going to be experienced in a relationship; however, it’s how you manage them that matters most.
Emotionally maturity is when you feel emotions with self-compassion and create space to choose a response instead of an emotional reaction.
When you enter into difficult situations is important to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.
Create some space filled with time and rational thought, and your ability to manage your emotions and relationships will dramatically improve.
This is the easiest way to feel an emotion without reacting to a loved one in a way that doesn’t serve you.
Create space by taking 5 deep breaths paying attention to how you feel and how you feel like responding!
How Two People Feel Towards The Same Experience
The mother responds emotionally to this event by stating, “it’s going to be one of those days.“
Mom continues, “it seems like this week, nothing’s gone my way.”
Dad responds in a different way, “I’ve always wanted to go in the rain with a bathing suit and just jump in puddles.”
Dad continues, “It’s 72 degrees out. Would you be willing to go outside and jump in the puddles?”
Belief Systems Determine How You Feel
Two different people have the same external experience, yet the only difference is their belief systems.
Their belief system guides their emotional response to the event.
“Your belief system is what dictates your emotional response to the external world.”
Many blame the external world for our emotions when this cause-and-effect relationship is false.
The external environment and external triggers initiate your emotional response; however, they aren’t what creates it.
How Feelings Arise
What initiates emotional reactions is a trigger.
Next, you add the filter of your belief system that forms your emotional response.
Your beliefs guide your emotional response, not the circumstances.
What can we do with this information?
Consider doing a “REP”, Reverse engineering protocol, when your experience emotionally is a lower vibe response.
Imagine you’re unhappy with how you felt and wish you had a different emotional response.
Let’s look at the event from a different perspective.
Consider Another Perspective
What might be the belief system someone has who had a more beneficial response?
Pondering this question, you start to gain knowledge on an alternate belief system to consider adopting.
“This adoption can improve your emotional response.”
You start to wonder, “what changes could I experience if I start reflecting on and shifting my belief system?”
- The first step to instantly feeling any emotion is becoming aware of your current set of default emotional responses.
- The second step is to realize you’ve been validating your beliefs by looking for things that confirm them.
It will take time for more profound beliefs to start to shift.
Going for a walk isn’t hard; having to walk 1200 miles is hard.
It’s not the act that’s difficult. It’s the dedication required.
Changing the belief is going to take a little bit of time.
The emotional pain felt by negative emotions can, in healthy ways, be replaced with positive emotions.
Paying attention to the present moment by taking a deep breath is one positive action you can take to feel better instantly.
A daily routine of meditation helps you to feel good and is believed to be a better way to control your emotions.
The key is identifying new beliefs that would be the foundation for a higher vibe default response.
The second step to solidifying this new belief is to actively focus your attention on finding evidence to support this new belief.
“Patience is the final piece of the puzzle.”
Creating a new belief may take weeks, months, or even years.
Time depends on how much it conflicts with your current belief system.
It also depends on how often you validate it through supportive evidence in your external environment.
