Learning from your emotions; they have a message for you

nature400x300

Today there seems to be a lot of talk about only feeling those “good” emotions, working your way up the ladder of feelings without much regard for the ones you don’t much care for. While it’s understandable that you want to feel good, it’s beneficial to take a look at those unwanted feelings before moving on past them.
All feelings have value to you. Each one brings with it a message that once understood helps you to move forward with deeper understanding and personal insight. Anger for instance asks you to halt and pay attention to your surroundings, often warning you ahead of time of a potential danger. When understood anger as well as your other emotions bring healing and balance to your life experience.

The problem with anger is that often times it’s held to tightly because of a past trauma. Something happened and you just haven’t let it go. Anger boils inside you and explodes with the least provocation often bring with it destruction of relationships and peace. Once you take a look at the cause of this type of anger response you can trace it back to it’s root, change your perception of the situation and allow healing. Healing is the process of allowing something else into your life rather than the same old types of things.

After tracing your anger back to it’s root look for the gift in that situation. There is always a gift, sometimes you just have to dig really deep to find it. Abuse in childhood reminds you to protect yourself and you can now be inspired to help others understand that they have control over their own lives rather than just living with the anger and hurt of the past. No matter the original cause of the anger you can shift it’s meaning in your life and move forward into healing and balance.

Law of Attraction and Peace

Peacefulness is a state of Being. It’s a choice. It has nothing to do with circumstances or other people.

We make choices all day long and choose our state of Being through our thoughts and feelings. Most of the time we are not conscious of the choosing.

A few years ago I heard a wonderful story that explains it beautifully.

There was a great king who offered a treasure to the artist who could bring him a painting that most represented peace.

On the appointed day many artists arrived at the king’s court with painting after painting of sunrises, sunsets, beautiful fields of flowers and other breath taking sights.

One after another they filed before the king to show what they felt represented peace.

Finally there arrived an artist with a painting of a powerful water fall rushing over the rocks. Hidden behind the waterfall was a nest with a mother bird serenely sitting on her eggs.

This is the painting he chose.

The story shows that peacefulness is not a matter of circumstances, but a matter of conscious choice.

Regardless of the conditions you find yourself in you can at this moment choose to Be peaceful.

Begin by accepting that every one and every thing in your life is there with your permission and through your creative energy. Nothing can be in your experience unless you attract it and permit it.

You are a powerful magnet, creating and attracting through the law of attraction, everything you passionately feel and think about.

Knowing this, you can relax and enjoy the power to create that is yours. You can accept that if you are powerful enough to create your present situation you can just as easily create something different to experience.

If your experience is not to your liking you have most likely created unconsciously. Use that same energy, power of passionate thought and feeling to change the outer circumstances as you choose peace.

Your choice of a state of being is easily noticed by the words you speak. What do you most often say after I AM_________________?

Each time you proclaim with an I AM declaration you are choosing a State of Being.

Starting right now line your words up with your desired state of being.

It’s not enough to just say it either. You must feel it. Take a moment now and again throughout your day to be still and listen to your inner guidance. Feel your state of being, choose again if this is not the state you wish to experience.

Even, and maybe especially, in the midst of your own powerful waterfalls in life, choose peace. Time and again choose peace. Through awareness and conscious thinking you will powerfully create an inner state of Being that will magically change your outer experience. The key to transforming your experiences is healing and defining your inner state.

Everything outside you is a reflection of your inner beliefs. By choosing peace, you will experience peace and more peaceful experiences will manifest in your life.

Use the affirmations to guide you through the day.

All is perfect, right here, right now.

Peace is a conscious choice.

I embrace the feeling, the state of Being; peace.

My state of Peace attracts peaceful circumstances and people.

I trust the Universe and my Inner Wisdom to guide me.

Love, joy and peace flow through me.

I am a channel of well being through conscious choice.

Peace is the result of my giving up trying to control everything and everyone.

Peace dwells in my life and I dwell in peace.

I embrace joy, peace and love.

Throwing more wood on the fire makes the fire burn bigger

While waiting for Hillary Clinton to show up for her speech I took a gander on Facebook to see what the Clinton supporters were saying.

I am shocked to see so many people painting her as Hitler and worse.

I understand backing and supporting a candidate, I don’t understand being so against one.

Of course I find the same thing about Obama with equal shock and fear.

When in this nation will we put aside our anger, fear and prejudices and look at people as just that, people.

The best way to get someone elected is NOT to be against them, but to be FOR someone else with passion.

We have so many “against” campaigns in this nation that accomplish nothing to end what we say we are fighting.

Perhaps by the very nature and energy of fighting against something we give more energy to it.

I tell my children that if you want a fire to go out you don’t keep adding wood. This is the attitude we can adopt for all thinking that takes us away from peace, joy and prosperity for not only ourselves, but our nation and our world.
