When I reflect back on my life, I am so amazed at the growth that comes with age. The most destructive moments truly were the moments of profound expansion. I have been tied to my emotions throughout life, but not always willing to respect them. The respect now shines like a beacon in the night. I can see the guidance they were always trying to provide. Although the fog has settled into my life frequently, I can see and feel it clearing breath by sacred breath.
How do we learn to appreciate the sacredness of our emotions? They can be a frightening part of us we are sometimes ashamed of, or embarrassed by. I am learning what it means to ride the emotional wave. A spiritual teacher said our emotions let us know if we are going with or against the natural current of our lives. When we are experiencing negative emotions/energy we are going against the current. When we are experiencing positive emotions/energy we are riding the wave. It is like being carried above the current. Brilliant!!! I was almost tempted to say if only I had known that at a younger age, but then thought, no negative energy Bella!!!
The Secret and The Law of Attraction truly were eye opening for me. It came at a time when I was simply numbing my emotions. I began flirting with this idea, which felt like truth! Do you know what I mean by that? A moment so profound it felt as if I had always known this, but for some reason had amnesia. I suddenly remembered and it felt amazing! Newton’s Third Law of Motion states, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore, I started taking responsibility for my thoughts and intentions towards others and myself.
Gary Zukav and Linda Francis gave me another relief from my state of amnesia. The Seat of the Soul, The Heart of the Soul, and The Mind of the Soul were books that felt like a peaceful home that had been awaiting my return. Emotional awareness, genius! I started realizing my emotions are the same ones that have visited me throughout my life; therefore I am responsible for tending to them, and not dumping them on anyone I come in contact with just because they may have elicited those very emotions.
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle continued the process of powerful growth. It is all about the present moment. The past and future are merely thoughts in my head. I have to give my fullest attention to the present, have pure intentions, and take responsibility for my emotions.
I am quite fascinated now by my emotions because they allow me to see the parts that need healing. Isn’t it all so intoxicating…The Law of Attraction, Emotional Awareness, Presence and Consciousness? I mean could we be any luckier to have a connection to the source of these miracles bestowed upon us? It’s provided so that we may grow closer to that very energy. Delicious Ambiguity as Gilda Radner once said…..
Love and Light,
This being human is a guest house, every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, which violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. –Rumi ( The Guest House)
