A couple of weeks ago I did a radio show where I shared a lot about the differences between feelings and emotions. I feel it’s important for us to understand the difference between when we’re having an emotional response or reaction and when we’re experiencing a feeling.
I’ve had so much experience being an emotional drama queen – mostly being angry and argumentative. It was such a miserable way to live. I was the cause of my own unhappiness being critical and complaining constantly. It was as though I felt God had died and left me in charge of judging everything!
I became afraid of my emotions and anger was the only one that felt safe to me. Anger is actually an emotional protective device. When I realized that I could learn to have trust and place my faith in Spirit, when I began to really practice BEING loving, that’s when my emotional life changed profoundly.
I have had so much healing through allowing myself to experience my emotions and letting them be expressed rather than holding them in. Now, it feels safer and safer for me to have my emotions and allow them to go through and realize that they’re not who I am. Plus, I just don’t feel particularly emotional anymore.
Nowadays I am more aware of feelings. I feel peaceful, harmonious, free, joyous.
It’s been deeply healing for me to cultivate the feelings that I’d like to experience. We can cultivate Peace, Harmony, Joy and Freedom. We can cultivate the feeling of Abundance and Wholeness. These spiritual qualities have vibrational matches and we can cultivate them and attune to them. It just takes practice and willingness.
When you’re vibrating with the “frequency” of Abundance, because like attracts like, you’ll be attracting more experiences of Abundance into your life. It’s really not rocket science.
If you’re willing, Spirit will lead you and guide you. It’s your birthright. Go for it!
