Your Reality is Shaped by Your Emotions
Your emotions amply your thoughts and crystallize in your life. They become part of your personality or disposition, radiating out to include your body and surrounding life conditions – in other words your reality. You can lose a sense of your True Self and soul because of identification with illusionary thoughts and feelings. The mind tries to overcome the confusion and emotional pain, always trying to solve a problem it never can.
In this series we will discuss why your emotions shape your life, how you can benefit even when you are tempted by negative emotions, and how to center your emotional power.
Observe the Bodily Effects of Your Emotions
Your emotions can manifest in your life in precarious ways if you are not aware of them. They amply thought patterns and we all know, or are at least somewhat aware, that we always seem to be thinking about something.
Emotions are what power your thoughts to manifest physically!
It’s usually obvious when someone is angry. You may not actually see steam come out of their ears but: the rational part of the brain shuts down, the body tenses (tightening in the shoulders and chest), stress related hormones are released (such as adrenaline and cortisol), and the face gets red when the cardiovascular responses kick in.
Matters of the heart are involved!
People with an irritable disposition are 3 times more likely to have a heart attack than people who are less prone to temper tantrums. Plus, over time such high stress situations like anger can hamper the immune system, resulting in any number of illnesses.
Positive emotions like delight and gratitude also manifest in the body, reversing the effects of negative emotions, harmonizing and healing it. When you experience joy and love: the body relaxes, happiness chemicals are released (such as dopamine, oxytocin or endorphins) and sent to your heart.
Of course, matters of the heart are involved!
In those people who feel deep, abiding love there is a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, greater functioning of the immune system, and calmer, clearer thinking.
You Attract What You Feel – The Law of Attraction
If you think your life sucks at times, then it does.
What most people don’t realize is that it sucks because we make it that way; we attract the same energy that we feel. Through the Law of Attraction (Love) – you get what you put out there in the Universe.
So if you have a grumpy disposition then you attract more negative, low-frequency conditions, even if that is not what you desire.
The Law of Karma
The Law of Attraction and The Law of Karma, or Cause and Effect, work together. If you evaluate a situation negatively with dark thoughts and emotions you will be very tempted to act upon it, especially if you are unconscious of your motivation.
The Law of Karma is a compassionate universal law that works to help us get back to our natural state of harmony. You will have to face the same or similar life situation over and over again until you respond from a place of sincere love consistently.
Thoughts are empowered to manifest physically as emotions and shape our physical reality; first, in our body, then our surroundings, then others around us and indeed the world.
Why do they have such power?
Because our emotions are empowered by our Soul! And, the dominating character of our Soul is Love. Love is our natural condition and emotion, but when Love is perverted in the subconsciousness by fearful thinking it causes us, each of us, to suffer.
We attract what we feel through our heart, the seat of Love and Magnetic Center of Attraction.
In the next study we will discuss simple ways to change your reality even when you are tempted by negative emotions!
