We are all feeling bodies. Think about it... we all have bodies and we all have feelings. Actually our feelings are the language of our bodies.
Imagine if we knew exactly how to interpret the signs that our bodies were giving us.
Imagine knowing exactly what it means when your chest feels heavy or your stomach feels queasy.
That's what can be learned with the Feeling Bodies emotion magnets. Teach your kids to recognize the signs their bodies are giving them, to know what it means and to deal with their emotions in a healthy way. Invaluable skills that will help them through life.
A tool to guide kids to get comfortable with their feelings
Knowing what we feel is the foundation for developing Emotional Intelligence, which is essential for a successful and fulfilling life. It's never too early to start supporting children to feel at ease with their feelings.
The Feeling Bodies emotion magnets are a fun and gentle way to help kids:
We so wish we would have learned all of this as children, make sure your kids don’t miss out.
The Feeling Bodies emotion magnets also complement and fit into the My Feelings Box. The colors of the emotions are matching and provide additional guidance for children to express their feelings.
The Feeling Bodies emotion magnets can be used with and by children as young as 3-years old up to adults of all ages. They are ideal for kids who are very visual, do not yet read and also for children with a foreign mother tongue. They also serve as a great bridge for children (or adults) who struggle to find words to express their emotions and as a result may often have tantrums or be very quiet.
The Feeling Bodies emotion magnets are used in homes, classrooms, councillors offices and therapist praxis’.
The Feeling Bodies emotion magnets are a set of figures illustrating emotions that come printed on magnets. These magnets can be used on a fridge or any other magnetic surface at home, in classrooms or in therapists offices.
They allow children to identify their emotions by recognizing what they are experiencing in their bodies and then matching that to a feeling body figure. Ultimately, this allows them to expand and build their emotion vocabulary.
They serve as a safe an non-intrusive way to express emotions, leading to powerful communication and enlightening conversations.
The Feeling Bodies emotion magnets can be used by children on their own, in groups or together with an adult. They can be used as a check-in ritual (How are you feeling this morning? How are you feeling when you come home from school? How are you feeling before going to bed? Etc.), be brought out at specific moments or simply be left out for everyone to express themselves as and when they like.
Feeling Bodies can be used to...
Identify how you are feeling. Pick the figures that best match your feelings in the moment. Accept your feelings. What experiences, thoughts or beliefs may bring these feelings?
Discover what you would like to feel. Pick the figures expressing how you would like to feel. What thoughts and actions could you choose to help you feel that way?
Make conscious choices. Pick the figures to express how you would feel with each choice. How would you feel if you made this choice? Or another choice? How would you feel if you acted this way? Or that way?
Practice empathy. Put yourself in someone else's situation and pick the figures to best match how they might be feeling. What could they be feeling? What else might they be feeling?
Imagine going through life and not being overwhelmed and taken over by emotions. Imagine fully understanding what you feel and knowing how to navigate through each emotion for a smoother ride through life. That’s what you will experience once you understand what emotions are really all about, you practice identifying and listening to your emotions and you make this part of your everyday life. It’s never too late to learn this but it’s never too soon to start.

You know what really makes life more complicated than it needs to be? Not understanding ourselves or our feelings and not navigating our emotions in the best possible way. Feelings come and go in waves… all the time. We can either let them pull us under and drag us down, or we can learn to surf them. That is what Feeling Magnets are for. They are your equipment to help you learn to surf your emotions like a pro.
Today we might be doing alright. We might be getting by just fine. But is life really just about getting by? We might be fine most of the time and just occasionally feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable with certain emotions. Most of us have developed ways to deal with this… we might ignore our feelings or we might distract ourselves from them without realizing what we are missing out on. We have emotions for a reason and they actually show up to help us but we only get those messages if we pay attention to them.
To surf through the emotions in our lives we need to know exactly what e are feeling, why and to consciously choose the best possible way to act. That is what the Feeling Magnets were created for.
Feeling Magnets are a simple tool that prompts us to help us find the right words for how we feel. Finding the right words for how we feel is really powerful. It decreases the power of uncomfortable feelings and anchors the “positive” ones. And once we know what we are feeling, we can also respond in a more informed and conscious way.
Feeling Magnets include a guide to help you understand what emotions really are all about and what each feeling is trying to tell you. It comes with free access to the Feeling Magnets Member Club (online newsletter series), which guides you on your journey to mastering your emotions and surfing your emotions like a pro. Ultimately, you will experience more of the emotions you enjoy and fewer, shorter and less intense bursts of the emotions that are uncomfortable. It’s time for a smoother ride through life.
"By looking through all of the emotions I put up in my Feeling Magnets box, I find it a lot easier to clear my mind and find ways to work on myself to become more and more happy."

WHAT IF FEAR WAS A CALL TO BE BRAVE?
I’ve been studying different emotions for years now and I have a pretty good grasp of why they exist and what they show up to help is with. The other day I was feeling afraid because I had received a request that I didn’t know how to respond to. I wanted to help and yet I noticed that I had so many things that I had already planned to do and I knew if I accepted this request, it would take away from the things I had planned that also needed to be done. Not only that but it was also something that would take me 1 hour with the client and actually would involve over two hours of travel time.Read More
