Consider each new emotion a new height in your life.
The fastest way to move up this scale is to continually tell the truth to ourselves and others.
You can increase your self awareness rapidly by observing your feelings, rather than your thoughts. A practice I do to observe my feelings is I ask myself a lot of questions out loud. A simple question I begin with when looking inward at a feeling and emotion is “What for?”
By asking this you’ll notice you begin to journey down a path that eventually leads to the root cause of a why you are feeling a certain way. Ask “What for?” On and on until you reach the root cause. It’s kinda like digging deep into your subconscious and eventually the answer (root problem) presents its self.
It can happen the first time or one day you'll be going through out your day and it as if the subconscious just releases it and pop right up into your awareness.
From this moment, you now have an opportunity accept it as it is with out resisting or condemning. (What you resists, persists - remember?)
Then you can begin a process of letting it go, which starts to drains the energy carried behind this emotional state cause from an experience. Then you begin to transcend to a new emotional state. (That is a freaking beautiful experience)!
Maybe you know the deep emotional root cause, yet you continually suppress, repress, express or try to escape from it. - All which are negatively impacting you and other around you.
It does no good to hold on to these experiences, feelings, events. So many do because these emotions and states are a part of “who they are.” They refuse to let go because there is so much more comfort and knowing in the suffering they are experiencing rather than moving forward into the unknown of who they can become.
We know that the dis-ease is your body and mind eventually expresses itself through suffering, sicknesses and disease over time, unless it is worked through. (I know so much easier said than done - but it is worth it. You’ll love yourself more and more the moment you begin to work internally to heal because you deserve it. You deserve it. Don’t let anyone else tell you different).
The more we live at these lower emotional states, the more we experience negativity in our life and the more we negatively impact those around us. The more we move up in emotional states, the more we experience beauty and positively impact those around us.
From people to events, like attracts like. As above so below. What are you bringing into your life? It is just a reflection of your internal world.
So ask yourself, how long do you want to go on with this suffering? When is enough, enough? When are you willing to let it go and continually rise up?
The world sees you as you see yourself. - Ponder on that for a minute or 3,000.
You have the power to dive deep into your emotions and not run from them. And let them go day by day until they no longer have any meaning and power over you. It's a never ending process but the experience of life will continually get better and better.
Eventually you can rise up to experience Love, Joy and a Peace that surpasses all understanding. Im striving to get there too.
You got this. We got this.
