The last few nights I’ve written about the power of emotions to help us manifest almost anything we visualize. If we focus on emotions, many times the “things” we end up with may not be those which we anticipated. Emotions win out over things every time.
Why? Pretty simple, really, from a psychological perspective. We want things because they make us feel a certain way. We want some sort of emotional satisfaction from them — really, from life in general.
When we approach a new year, we are often filled with hope of things being better. A bit of irony exists in that, though, because many people are dead set opposed to change. This cuts off any possibility of emotional fulfillment. Hope unequivocally mean things will change; life changes if hope is fulfilled.
However, if we want things to change — easy, peasy. In terms of making life better, different, and living hopes, dreams, and passions, we really only need a few things. (By the way, the ideas I’m sharing here aren’t some formula, only some possible means to the end of feeling good.)
We need to have a very clear mental picture of where we want to be, but more importantly, we need a clear sense of how that picture makes us feel. Emotions drive the whole manifestation. Oftentimes, the picture, the “thing,” will change, but it will always change to produce those feelings we desire. We attract those energies that will manifest form.
Yes, I basically said this last night, but I wanted to reinforce it because of the coming new year. It should be a time of evaluation and hope. I evaluate what I have done in the past year and how I feel about that. I consider if I’m feeling good, rotten, up, down. I look back over the past year’s work and decide if I will hold the same course, what adjustments need to be made, what aspects of my mission may need to be amended or deleted. It’s fluid — but that fluidity is based on how it is all feeling and what those emotions have attracted, manifested, or what they haven’t.
When fails occur, Ego is involved. I know I said easy-peasy, and it is when we stay in fellowship with our Heart. But we are a complete package that includes Ego and in a world where most people process life through Ego. That, my friends, presents challenges, and it should.
It’s part of the joy of maturing and working through issues. It’s part of living, and we should be aware of it and value it: our relationship to Self and that Self to the Other. So, ultimately, I don’t have a formula, only suggestions because part of my vision and mission is to help you discover some things about Self.
I can’t hope to write anything really new about these issues. Much has been done. But maybe, just maybe, my desire to fulfill my purpose, to live significantly to Self, might help you think about these things for just a few seconds longer, long enough for you to sort through ideas that can help you create very clear pictures of the emotions you want to feel. The more specific we are, the more we grow, the happier we are.
It should all be fun and positive. The ending of a wonderful Washington Irving story, “Old Christmas,” deals with this hope for his readers: “…if I can…make my reader more in good humor with his fellow-beings and himself, surely, surely, I shall not then have written entirely in vain.” Not a bad goal for any of us living core Self — create some joy and good vibes with others.
Therefore, I leave it with you and wish you the blessings of those emotions you wish to feel, those which will enrich you.
Questions to consider:
How many times have you asked yourself or simply thought about the following questions?
Who am I, really?
What is my truth?
How do my actions reveal what I really feel and believe?
What would I do with my life if I could do anything?
What is my passion?
Why am I here?
How can I discover answers to any of these questions?
If you have considered any of these questions, I hope that my experiences and writing will give you some guidance. Please read my blog and comment and share your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!
