What you feel is really up to you.
Every emotion we experience carries with it a vibrational energy. This is easy to understand when we think of common emotional responses such as anger or upset- they generally feel what we often describe as ‘bad’ energy in the body. We contract physically, make ourselves physically smaller, cave in the shoulders ect. Comparatively when we experience happiness and love we feel ‘good’. Inside of these experiences we feel expansive, open and our physical bodies actually become more open our posture aligns, we stand straighter and expose our hearts vibrant energy.
So how do we go from being totally in the dumps emotionally to feeling better?
Simple. By choosing emotional experiences which are higher on the emotional vibrational scale.
I first was introduced to this information through Dr. David Hawkins book Power vs Force ( A great read I highly recommend it). From there the next place I heard of this information was through Esther and Jerry Hicks and their work with Abraham.
Now I get it there some people may be more scientific minded and I would recommend the David Hawkins route, for others who are more spiritual I would encourage exploring the Abraham-Hicks work. Both are incredible valuable- choose to explore the one which makes the most sense to you- this my dears is what rocking out on the path of least resistance looks like.
The premise of the work is this- every emotion we feel emits a vibrational charge. When we make a habit of choosing negative emotions we flood our physical, mental and emotional bodies with lower vibrational energy. These lower energies actually drain our human energy tanks and if we do this enough eventually the physical, mental and emotional bodies breakdown. Likewise when we choose to feed ourselves with the experience of positive emotions we fill up our physical, mental and emotional tanks. When the tanks are full we are running in optimum form- experiencing optimum health and wellbeing.
Here is the Emotional Scale:
Where peeps get tripped up is placing an expectation on themselves of being able to go from the lowest emotions to the highest emotions instantly. To me this is the ego-ic mind making an attempt to stay stuck because the likelihood of being able to go from one extreme to the other instantly is very slim. I’m sure there are people capable of it however I have found that the most consistent/successful route is climbing up the emotional/energetic ladder one step at a time.
While it may seem counter intuitive to replace one bad feeling emotion with another, making those choices actually moves us up the scale. When we know the vibrations associated with our new present choice are higher (even if it’s not significantly higher) we begin to feel the energy of self empowerment and self reliance. As twinklings of those positive feelings begin to emerge we are able to move up the emotional scale quicker and find ourselves in the higher vibrations sooner than later.
My success dialogue I use to climb up the emotional scale:
I am currently having an experience of _____.
I understand this is only my experience and not the truth.
I love, accept and forgive myself.
At this point I just allow the experience to be there. What tends to happen almost instantly is I then have a new emotional experience. Mine usually starts with jealousy. When I do this exercise with myself the next emotions I experience are either anger or revenge. What is interesting is that whichever one surfaces both are a higher vibrational energy, which I then acknowledge by saying:
Kelsey even though you are having the experience of _____ at this present moment you have moved up the vibrational scale and I acknowledge you for your making the choice to feel better.
Sometimes it takes a while and that is ok. There is always something powerful the negative emotions can teach us about who we are if we allow them to. Here in lies the distinction of being controlled by our emotions and being in charge of your experience.
It will take some practice and with your consistent and honest exploration you will lead yourself into a more positive and happy experience of life. For True.
