In this episode, we’re talking about emotional lows and the deep impact it has on our spiritual, psychological, and physical well-being. 

In the Science of the Nafs, these are the three core areas in the framework that we help our clients to transform. It’s all intertwined and connected.

Overcoming the Feeling of Disconnected & Being Low

One of the biggest obstacles that most of my clients face, whether they’re coaches, therapists, or just professionals going through a personal transformation in their lives is self-sabotage and negative emotional spiralling.

When you’re affected emotionally, and psychologically, then it impacts you spiritually. 

Does this happen to you? 

Is there maybe some circumstance you find yourself in, relationship challenges, work challenges, any challenge, psychological, physical, spiritual, whatever that’s causing you to spiral into something negative? 

You could be feeling fear, anger, sadness, anxiety, or overwhelmed. 

Life just seems difficult when you’re in this state. 

Many people struggle with this. In my experience, training coaches and therapists, taking them through a journey of transformation, I see this often.

These emotions can then affect us spiritually in the way we connect to Allah. We may even slip further into disconnecting from Allah, feeling resentment, or acting rebelliously. 

Instead of running to Allah, we end up running from Allah. This worsens the problem and our emotional state. 

That laziness kicks in. All of a sudden Wudu becomes a mountain of a task. Suddenly, your Salah gets delayed, and before you know it making Dua and asking Allah becomes an effort. 

This state of mind drains your energy to focus on connection and remembrance of Allah. 

The solution to it all is to turn to Allah for relief. Turn to Allah for that peace and contentment that we need.

Turn to the Quran and Salah in hope and good expectation. 

We have a choice. We can choose intentional thinking and run to Allah for answers, hoping and expecting that He will give us what we need. 

Thinking is your choice. Just like you can choose to go to the store to shop, or sit and talk to people, you can choose what you think about and what you expect. 

Once you recognise and take a closer look at your emotional responses and behaviour and understand it, then you can move towards changing it. 

You can shift your mindset to positive expectations and expect good from Allah. You can choose to connect instead of choosing to disconnect. 

Become intentional with your mind and consciously choose to connect with Allah through Salah, through Dhikr and reflection, and Dua. 

Our thoughts are within our control. 

We don’t have to go down the slippery slope of negative self-talk or negative thoughts. We don’t have to withdraw from others or isolate ourselves and feel lonely and miserable. 

Staying connected to Allah(swt) avoids us from slipping into self-sabotage and all the negative spirals that come with emotional lows and feeling disconnected.

We have a choice. It’s the most powerful thing.
