Emotions are NOT meant to take hold of and rule your self, they are meant to guide and inspire you. When positive emotions accompany your intentional thought for creation you are being assured that your thinking of things that you want. The longer (in the sense of days and weeks rather than minutes) you focus on these thoughts the stronger the emotions become. Strong emotions vibrate at a high rate; they energize you and seep deep into your subconscious. Higher rates of vibration also enlighten your imagination and this is where real magic can happen. Your imagination can provide you with the inspiration needed to accomplish anything, even when it appears impossible. It will not hand you a miracle, but it will show you steps and opportunities that you sit outside the light of your current awareness.
When you use your emotions as a reaction tool to your physical environment they will take hold of you because your emotions surge into every single cell in your body. Emotions release chemicals to your cells and your cells are influenced by these chemicals. Your cells also REMEMBER every time you have felt that emotion in the past. This is not a memory that you are aware of, but your cells are, and they react to the WHOLE experience that you have encountered with that emotion, meaning they combine all your past experiences with that emotion with your current experience of it. When you struggle with the same emotion frequently it becomes a powerful force for you to reckon with and if you use it as a reaction tool it will take control of you.
When you use your ego to express judgment on your reality you have the ability to move your focus to your conscious mind where rational thought will find means for change when needed. When you use your emotions to express judgment on your reality you cannot move your focus because your emotions do not require focus.
It is very possible that you are going about your day with your ego acting out your conscious’s job of rational thought and problem solving and your emotions acting out your ego’s job as the judge of your physical reality. Using your self in this way is certain to lead to frustration and disappointment. Your ego lives in a fantasy world. It believes that it is the center of the universe and everyone and everything should bend to its will. Everything that your ego encounters is looked at as good or bad, with no in-between. Good when it honors the ego’s fantasy or bad when it denies the ego’s fantasy. The ego has the mentality of a spoiled child, and when you allow it to rationalize and allow your emotions to judge you are putting this spoiled child in charge of your emotions. When you operate your self in this way you will be doing everything in your day in effort to appease the spoiled child you put in charge.
Your emotions expect to have what they do not like adjusted immediately, until you find what they do like. This works very well with thought and your internal creation process, but does not work well at all with physical reality.
Emotions originate on the inside, not on the outside. If you base your emotions on your surroundings they will wreak havoc on you- you have no immediate control over your surroundings and therefore would have no control over your emotions. All of your power is inside you and your emotions come from what happens inside you NOT OUTSIDE. Your power to use your emotion is found in knowing that they are inside you and work best from the inside out, preparing your reality for your creation, not from the outside in, preparing your self for creating more of the same.
Your emotions are a wreck in the physical world. When you emotionally react to situations you go into auto-drive, your emotions begin to feed off of the interpretation of what you are reacting to, as if your emotions are looking through your eyes instead of listening to your thoughts. You need to align your emotions with your purpose and you do this by feeding your emotions thoughts that are aligned with your purpose. When you align your thoughts with your purpose you can shift through your emotions in the way they are meant to be used. Having them guide and inspire you through your creation process and fuel your action through your day.
