How willing are you to be brave, positive, confident, adventurous, fun, and peaceful? What feelings do these words invoke? Try this experiment: take a moment to reread these words and REALLY experience the feelings they represent. What would happen if you were outrageous in bringing them into your day, moment by moment, including today’s:
- to-do list
- biggest problems or challenges
- judgment of yourself and others
What would happen to your day? Your relationships? Your past hurts?
What would happen to how much you got done? Or the quality of the work and how you did it?
What would your experience be?
The power of our emotions plays a crucial role in everything we do, including our intuition and our prosperity. Just a short few minutes consciously, deliberating choosing to be in alignment with our positive feeling emotions can help us:
- become more aligned with our center
- help us see things we need to change so we can course correct into balance with love and compassion
- be more patient, kind and accepting of the process of spiritual awakening
- stay more present
- be more at peace
1. Awareness first, then Action
As Esther and Jerry Hicks remind us in their book The Astonishing Power of Emotions: “An awareness of your emotions and what they mean is essential to your conscious evolution…. allowing yourself to become what life has caused you to desire is not about action. It is about the aligning of thought Energies. It is about focusing your attention in the direction of your desire rather than looking back at the current conditions that have given birth to your desire.” I interpret this as mindfulness birthing right action; it starts with a willingness to be emotionally present not only with what is, but with the certainty of what CAN be. As Napoleon Hill said, “you must have a keen, pulsating desire that transcends everything.”
2. Are you swimming against the current or going with the flow?
To paraphrase Hicks: we believe that anyone who amounts to anything has to work very hard, against the current. Turning downstream to go with the flow is labelled as too easy, even lazy. However, here’s the rub: “Nothing that you want is against the current!” The Stream of Life, if we allow it to carry us, is always downstream… the flow of life that we can trust… hence today’s “DARE YA!”. Spiritual awakening – can you let yourself go with it’s flow?
3. Emotions help direct from ineffectiveness to improvement
“In this moment, am I turned toward improvement or away from it? The emotion you feel will give you the answer.” We’re either choosing to struggle or to flow… it’s that simple.
4. Take the dare, go with the flow
So let’s go back to the challenge of the day and be willing to experiment…. how will you know the power of peace if you don’t actually choose it? No matter what happens… can you let peace be here too, amid the inherent discomfort of painful emotions of spiritual awakening? Take a look at the list of emotions at the top of this article…. how will you know their power if you don’t actually choose them?
Helen Keller said that life is a daring adventure or nothing. Despite the physical challenges of being both blind and deaf, this amazing woman became one of America’s most famous educators, and internationally acclaimed inspiring speakers. She accepted her impediments; she let them carry her into her awakening. You do the same, when you allow fear to be here and choose peace anyway.
Experiment for just one hour, one day, one week…. in the process of your spiritual awakening…. will you BELIEVE; can you let the flow of life carry you into the present moment where inspired action arises in its own timing? In doing so, you let go of the unconscious patterns contributing to your worry and stress. And let’s face it… isn’t spiritual awakening only possible by choosing to allow peace, happiness and freedom to be here now, even when, or especially when we don’t really feel like it?
