Your Reality is Shaped by Your Emotions: The Power of Emotion to Change Your Life, Part 1

Frustration

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!

Our ego loves what is familiar and will keep coming back to the same emotions, even if they feel bad! Your emotions amply your thoughts, radiating out as your personality, 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 feelings. The ego tries to overcome the confusion and emotional pain, by doing a lot of thinking about it, always trying to solve a problem it never can. 

In this series we will discuss why your  emotions shape your life, how to identify and benefit even by negative emotions, and how to center your emotional power for positive change.

Emotions  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.

Emotions release hormones related to the limbic system and chemicals in the brain and body …… and we can become addicted to these even if if they feel bad to us! We may not always be acutely aware of the emotions and physiological release of chemicals in our bodies, yet eventually we get a feeling. Our feelings, emotions, and attitudes are so tied together that we usually use these terms interchangeably.

Bodily Effects of Your Emotions

Your emotions can manifest in your life in precarious ways.  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.

Delight

Of course, matters of the heart are involved! We attract what we feel through our heart, the seat of Love and Magnetic Center of Attraction.

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

Circling in negative thoughts about your feelings amplify them! You attract the same energy that you think about and feel because of 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. 

Emotional Empowerment

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, but when Love is perverted in the subconscious ego by fearful thinking itt causes us, each of us, to suffer.

In the next study we will discuss simple ways to change your reality even when you are tempted by negative emotions!

Until next time consider this quote to reflect upon:

“Will Power must be held responsible together with Fear for bringing into your life the very things you dread. ”

Professor Ellen Langer of Harvard speaks on her research and upcoming movie about your emotions shaping your reality, as featured on CBS:

Soul Power to get the ego to work for You

Photo by Expect Best on Pexels.com

We get busy, worried, and circle in anxious thinking . For those of us conscious of being on our spiritual journey goals include raising our consciousness and harmonizing our thinking. The subconscious ego is naïve and allows ourselves to be mentally programmed. And it limits our awareness of life’s expansive opportunities and potentials ….. as being the creators of our own destiny!

Yet there are ways get the subconscious ego to work for us and control negative thoughts and impulses.

First of all ….. What is it?

Long ago we turned away from the Eternal ….. not recognizing our innate, Unconditional Love. We separated Divine Mind within us into three rays – Superconsciousness, Consciousness and Subconsciousness, a level below Consciousness.

The Consciousness is in the middle so to speak, being able to reach up to inspirations and Enlightenment of the Superconscious or down to programming, memories and imagination of the Subconsciousness.

And we want to raise up.

But, the ego can keep us circling in the subconscious programming with negative thinking and emotions. This happens when we do not stand guard to the consciousness and let negative thoughts, opinions, suggestions, sensations, feelings, emotions, and experiences fall into the subconscious to grow and mutate.

Eventually those mutated energies return to our consciousness and we consider them our personality and use them as rational thought!

Why to hard to control?

We may feel like we should fight against the ego. But intention based in disgust or scorn only draws more negative energies.

The subconscious is naive and lacks discrimination. It’s been programmed and that’s why it’s so hard to control!

Instead, we must fight with Truth and Love, We must fight with Divine Mind and Unconditional Love, developing conscious discrimination, consideration, honesty and caring.

How to harmonize

ENLIGHTEN the conscious self

We get busy during our day and unaware consciously, thus the practice of Relaxation and Silence is of prime importance to help us return to the moment. With a few deep breaths and mental silence we gain control over ourselves and negativity can no longer influence us. We’re more conscious and can return to reason and discrimination ….. choosing our thoughts and emotions.

The more we know about the subconscious as a condition the more we are able to become conscious and control the ego. Remember subconsciousness is a mere conditioned program …. a mental illusion and belief that was created by the human consciousness ages ago and is below our awareness.

In that conditioning there’s always a payoff for negative thoughts and emotions like stress, despair, anxiety, pride and anger! We can blame others or circumstances, get attention and get high on adrenaline and hormones of stress. And these hormones and drama are very addictive, keeping us in moods and beliefs about ourselves!

Engage Mind and Heart Coherence

Your emotions are tools of your Soul. And Soul recognizes negative passions when we experience them and lets us know by how they make us feel. We feel bad, down, worried, angry, humiliated, stressed, etc.

We can consciously choose to reject these negative passions. Negation is an easy means of mentally rejecting any inharmonious thoughts, emotions or positionalities. In negation we stand guard of the Conscious Self, reject and mentally throw negativity into a mental trashcan! Or incinerate it with the purifying power of Universal Life Energy. 

But, in order to do so we must be conscious, aware in the moment and care!

The next step is to think “as many positive thoughts as you can.” And we purposefully allow each positive thought to enter the subconscious so it can grow!

Each positive thought like gratitude eliminates a negative one!

As for myself, when I am conscious of a negative thought or emotion like resentfulness, because of the positionally believing I have been wronged ….. I reject it mentally. And I become grateful for this amazing awareness and ability to reject it.

Purify the subconscious

No amount of positive thinking can eliminate the entire human collective subconscious energies and karma that we are all connected to and part of. Yet, there is a powerful tool in Universal Life Energy to purify the subconscious.

And there are many methods of contact: the Star Exercise, the Mental Contact and a specific one for subconscious purification, called Fertilization as shared in The Fundamental Principles Lesson 11.

Every time you purposefully contact Universal Life Energy you are engaging a Power of the Great Principle that creates worlds, constitutes, governs, sustains, pervades and contains everything! It harmonizes, corrects and eliminates imperfections on all planes, including the subconscious ego.

Creating your own destiny

When we imagine and love our ambition and can experience the emotion of being in it Now we are attracted to harmonious, constructive opportunities! We sow the seeds of our ambitions.

We are engaging Mind and Heart coherence. And we are energizing the Law of Attraction and the Law of Demand and Supply.

Then we must act in concordance with our ambitions in the present moment with all the energies of Enthusiasm, Intelligence, Principle and Love.

The more we do, the more we are pulled to our ambitions!

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

“After you have relaxed, entered into Silence and made the Contact with Universal Life Energy, think of that Force in its greater Aspect as the Life Breath of the Universe.”

Your Potential in the energies of 2022

Love, relationships and Responsibilities

2022 = 2 + 0 + 2 + 2 = 6

According to sacred numerology this year adds up to #6 and matters of the heart, love and relationships become forefront.

It’s an opportunity for You to be in Love this year and transform yourself! An opportunity to connect with your Spiritual Heart and Unconditional Love that resides there, the sacred chamber of Source within!

On the world stage, #6 energies will encourage social coherence with attitudes of cooperation and compassion, focusing on goodwill and freeing ourselves from past attitudes of fear.

But there are also indications of power struggles and conflict among nations and dictatorial self-righteousness which may cause tempers to flair and acting on impulses instead of thinking things through first. In turn, this could cause mass confusion and distrust of governments and those in power.

This #6 year gives us an opportunity to be conscious of problems, yet focus on Love.

We have the freedom of choice to be enthusiastic, aware, sincere and compassionate. Those FourSquare energies attract opportunities to contribute to humanity’s awakening that is now taking place.

We can also contribute to humanity’s awakening by radiating and Giving Healing Energies to the World.

On more a personal level, the energy of #6 is domestic and centers around home. This year we will be blessed with the opportunity to establish calm and harmony within ourselves, home and family.

You will greatly benefit nurturing your existing relationships, letting family and friends know that they are appreciated and Loved. And apply optimistic attitudes to improve relationships at work.

Your emotions are what empower You to create your internal and external reality. Therefore, establish Harmony within yourself! And accept others for who they are and release self-absorbed urgings for control. Love them unconditionally as does Source. However, we should not tolerate any abuse, discriminating as to the best FourSquare course.

Choose to Be enthusiastic, considerate, sincere and Loving. It instills harmony. Now is the time to decide. It’s your spiritual privilege to choose your path in life. When you choose to feel emotionally harmonious within yourself and manifest it in your Individuality and life with the FourSquare, it leads you to success and Joy in Life.

Even if you experience push-back, let your confidence rise and old inhibitions fall away. And that Joy will spread out from you to those closest to you, then out into the world.

This should be a very rare year indeed with three #2’s!

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com

Three 2’s may create lively periods that swing from one direction to the other …. from carefree to rebellious, from reason to delusion, from focus to confusion. There may be volatile periods with misuse of power and acting too quickly without reason or consideration. And major disagreements on how to get things done.

Number 2 on the surface portrays polarity through opposites. Be careful of those biding for power. Just notice urges to jump one way or the other without following them.

Urges do not represent the Real You …. rather they stem from the primitive brain and human, subconscious ego conditioning. They are more like a shadow with no real substance.

Your frontal brain cortex and Self consciousness can override conditioning that urges us to join bandwagons that only add fuel to the fire of competition. You have spiritual freedom of choice!

Number 2’s sacred energy is that of Attraction and Love! There is potential for you to contribute to a more compassionate world with the energies of #2.

You can choose to blend intellect with love ….. Establish Mind/Heart Coherence.

You can choose to do acts of kindness rather than getting involved in squabbles.

You can choose to blend your human life with your inner spiritual life, making them the same thing. You and all of humanity will benefit.

Setting Goals for 2022

Courageously dare to pursue your goals, creating opportunities, rather than identifying with problems this year.

Unburden yourself of needless emotional baggage from past emotional hurts. This will help you Self-actualize and liberate Love from within, cultivating positive, upbeat vibes and sense of joy and humor.

The Light Seeker within can unite with the Light Worker that You are, and reap the rewards.

Aim to be Be FourSquare and let Love lead you; expressing All Energy, Intelligence, Truth and Love.

For a deeper look at sacred numerology for 2022:

Synchronize with the Spiritual Waves of 2022

“Light is Truth. With faces set to The Light, we can understand the real meaning of life.

Let us send to sufferers thoughts of Love. Love is not human. It is a Spark of the Eternal of which we are the Bearer.”

THE CONSCIOUS ARTIST

A person conscious of being a creative artist …… loves the process of creating ….. and aware of what motives them in the present moment. Now some may call this spiritual awareness or even religious devotion ….. and it is in a way, because …… we are becoming conscious of the Divine within ourselves.

Simple Effort can have Major Effects and Change Your Life

It takes courage to go into the gaps ….. to become aware of the silence in-between the streams of thinking. It takes courage to go out of our comfort zone …. to pause, observe the quiet ….. go silent within…… and experience zero thoughts.

The Secret Love of a Crisis – It’s not what You Think!

Gratitude may arise for the awareness of what is happening. Not for the crisis, problem or opposition, rather gratitude for the awareness of serenity and love always being close at hand. Gratitude for the infinite opportunities in this moment. Gratitude for some higher conscious understanding, that may not be logical, rather something deeper and far reaching ….. life changing.

Being a Positive Power in the World Through Emotional Contagion

PhotoPSLB

There is real value in the emotion of smiling because, not only it is an experience of your own reality, but also it sets the tone for positive inception to influence other people’s reality! People relate to us, even in passing, through our body language, facial expressions, words, and tone of voice.

Through the Law of Attraction, we can synchronize with other people’s emotions in their energy fields and auras, unconsciously. Emotions are contagious!

The world says ‘don’t discriminate,’ Your Inner Courage says ‘always discriminate!’

THE GREATER OBJECTIVE OF DISCRIMINATION IS …… 

To elevate the human mind to be conscious of our Unity ….. with Spirit ….. with Harmony. To be conscious of – All Life, Intelligence, Law and Love ….. And to Manifest ….. to Be …… in the ever present moment these qualities …… with every thought, every attitude, and every act of ours.

Attitudes that support Spiritual Awareness

A choice of one uplifting attitude invites an entire field of uplifting attitudes and raises our consciousness. 

It’s helpful to realize that the ego is extremely needy and gets energy from negative personality attitudes of predatory self-indulgence ….. like indignation over rights and entitlements, expecting no consequences.

Ways to go beyond ordinary thinking

We are very capable of recognizing and exercising our mental powers to raise our ordinary rate of vibration, becoming freer and happier. And we don’t have to spend the day in meditation! 

Being conscious and aware of what is happening in our thinking is the easiest way to create a freer mind and attract what you want in life. If we recognize we are tempted by anxiety or greed, be brave. We should acknowledge temptations without labeling them ….. energizing them. Egotistic, immature thoughts can hold us in discouraging circles of regret, craving, worry and hate. 

Relax physically and mentally, observing the feelings, the sensations, rather than the thoughts as a detached, impersonal observer. 

If we get involved in fearful thoughts, analyzing, labeling them, reminiscing and following them we can get caught in those energies and circle there. As a detached observer of the feelings, the feelings will dissipate gradually. You are releasing the mental/emotional energies. And this is what we want when those energies are coarse and dampening. 

It happens to us all the time. I will start to feel something that’s just off. And I become aware of it, emotionally. Resentment is a very subtle one! I am very much tempted to go into it, and dwell there, analyzing, questioning, connecting the dots so to speak, then labeling it. Pretty soon I realize I’m circling in those energies, powering more of the same! 

That’s when I pause and have some self-respect, taking a deep breath, relaxing and contact Universal Life Energy. The energies start to disperse. I focus on gratitude, sincerely feeling it in my heart and return to sanity. Then I can see and experience all the beauty and love in Life. 

There are other simple, yet effective ways: Ways to go beyond ordinary thinking – Companion lesson to Mental Vibrations in Advanced Teachings in Science of Being.

Today’s consideration

Summer trail PSLB 2021

Merely being conscious of our freedom of individual choices can be very uplifting and freeing.

Attitudes like those listed above are very simple choices that supports our spiritual process. It’s not just about making our life more pleasant and enjoyable, but it’s also …… about moving out of the compulsive ego that imprisons us in limiting and unhappy fallout.

Our choices determine consequences and shapes our reality.

With FourSquare choices that are Enthusiastic, Intelligent, True and Loving, we form a positive armor and eliminate the pain of mistakes.

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

“The wiser we become, the more harmonious we become, and the more useful we are to ourselves and to others. Wisdom governs justice and includes Love. Wise people are fundamentally kind people. Wisdom never forgets anything, but never resents anything.”

Attitudes that support spiritual awareness!

Photo by Gratisography on Pexels.com

There are simple choices that supports our spiritual process, and not just about making our life more pleasant and enjoyable, but also …… of moving out of the compulsive ego that imprisons us in limiting and unhappy fallout.

A choice of one uplifting attitude invites an entire field of uplifting attitudes and raises our consciousness.

It’s helpful to realize that the ego is extremely needy and gets energy from negative personality attitudes of predatory self-indulgence ….. like indignation over rights and entitlements, expecting no consequences.

The ego refuses to accept responsibility and usually sees a request for self-responsibility as oppressive! The subconscious ego can distort reality in order to be seen as a victim ….. and our individual level of power diminishes, as does our level of consciousness. It retards our spiritual progress and makes life challenging.

Yet, we can begin to transform our experience of Life, and indeed the world, by making simple decisions.

Kindly consider consciously choosing to Be even one of these attitudes and observe the effect:

  • Calm
  • Genuine
  • Warm with a sense of Humor
  • Friendly
  • Honest
  • Pleasant
  • Considerate
  • Helpful
  • Kind
  • Respectful
    • Respectable
  • Supportive
  • Dependable
  • Ethical
  • Loyal
    • Responsible

Our choices determine consequences and shapes our reality. Being conscious of our freedom of individual choices can be very uplifting and freeing.

With FourSquare choices and uplifting attitudes we form a positive armor and eliminate the pain of mistakes.

Add to that realization …..

That we need not do it alone …… that the Eternal is always helping us ….. then we equip ourselves to face any challenge and open our spiritual awareness.

Universal Life Energy is the Eternal at our fingertips, to easily contact consciously. And the more we utilize IT, our progress becomes more evident.

“The more you repose your full confidence in Universal Life Energy and throw your whole weight into the scale of the Positive, the more rapidly you equip yourself to conquer all adversity.”

Eugene Fersen, The Fundamental Principles in Science of Being, page 348.

Your choices determine your destiny …… your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors, shape your reality.

Life is a choice and our emotions and attitudes are reinforced by energies held in mind. And what is held in mind tends to manifest. Your earthly destiny is solely your own doing ….. it’s a spiritual reality.

In the hope You choose uplifting attitudes, PortiaSLB

“Good itself is indestructible and eternal. Only Evil is perishable, and the sooner it perishes the better. Govern your life by true, intrinsic values rather than by apparent worth.”

Law of Attraction – Visualization, Companion to Lesson 15 in 27 Lessons of Science of Being

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

“Universal Life Energy, all-pervading and omnipotent, will snatch from the unfathomed depths of Universal Consciousness the mental materials you may require just as effectively as It will attract on the Physical Plane the elements for the realization of desires.”

Surrendering pride before a fall

The stage is dank and dark
 The players desires rocket unforgiving flare
Forgetting the relevant line, 
'Pride goes before a fall.'
 They shout, 'I am holier-than-thou!'

While not even knowing 
 How things are truly going 
Concern for self-gain 
Sees the world as depriving
 Blind to hearts' courage endowing.

Willingness to let go        
 No longer the victim 
Intention envisioned
A sense of inner power becomes dictum
 Championing of causes when allowing.   

PSLB  

Many believe that pride is a ‘good’ quality and …

Though pride may seem supportive of us initially, pride blocks our expansion and is damaging. It lacks love and blocks us from freedom, happiness and our True Self. But, we have been programmed and conditioned to falsely identify with pride, feeling obligated to defend our positions, beliefs, and possessions. Yet there are ways to rise above it and regain our peace of mind.

To release pride …

It helps to realize how it works and how it gains a foothold of self-righteousness in us. Pride is a conditioned emotion based in the past ….. most likely when we were young and naive. And we tend to envisage this conditioning of pride into our decisions and choices without being conscious of it!

Pride displays defensiveness which implies fear and doubt that the object of pride is not strong enough to stand on its own merit and is open to question. A very prideful person, religious group or social movement is locked into a position or belief by fear, making it very difficult to advance or admit a mistake!

Focus may be on what is believed to be missing, with energies of disappointment, resentment, even anger and hatred, attracting more of the same energies. Anger, fear and hatred makes the prideful person feel that they are entitled to act-out, protest, become violent and even kill or maim those that don’t agree. And this also makes them vulnerable to counter-attack!

When we love and appreciate ourselves, a social movement or religion, the opinion of others has no power over us. We no longer need to be right. We recognize our self-worth and Inner joy arises because of love and enjoyment.

We acknowledge any intrinsic problems as works in progress. And this invokes attitudes that problems can be worked out satisfactorily with the world.

So how do we let go?

Pride is a label …. nothing real ….. an illusion and tool of the subconscious ego to continue its control. It helps to remember that nothing has any meaning other than what we give to it! And it makes it easy to let go since it was an illusion to begin with.

Peace of mind naturally rises within us, because there is nothing to defend or be angry about. Each time we recognize pride and get ahead of it, it’s easier to release

Release is a process of surrender …

 We can give pride new meaning ….. and that is by viewing it as an opportunity to learn and grow ….. to surrender to Unconditional Love ….. and regain our peace of mind. We can reclaim our freedom from the burden of defensiveness, blame, arrogance, anger, vulnerability, fear and smug self-righteousness.

Attract what we want!

 Our emotions are creative energies and with practice we can achieve our goals harmoniously by picturing them lovingly and allowing them, according to Universal Law rather than by our personal will.

We can deliberately create by deliberately choosing uplifting thoughts and emotions like appreciation, gratitude, optimism, compassion and Love. And with these energies we attract through the Law of Attraction and Love the necessary conditions and opportunities for success. 

The greatest gift we can give ourselves is recognition and release of harmful attitudes like pridefulness, fear and self-righteousness ….. and surrender to Unconditional Love. This is surrender to Source, Universal Life Energy and allowing our True Self to Be.  

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

“Every positive quality is the potential victim of this creeping poison [fear], which sows hatred, jealousy, distrust, anger, disease – every wrong and destructive element there is, physical, mental and emotional – in order to bar you from those things that you want and to bring into your life those things that you do no want.”

Eugene Fersen, Lesson 12 in 27 Lessons in Science of Being, page 260.

For more consider:

Recognize, Release and Surrender 

One of the easiest ways to recognize pride within our own selves is to observe our thoughts when interacting with others.

As discussed in the pervious entry, we want to get to the bottom of the emotion that causes all the prideful thinking and struggle of defensiveness ….. by recognition, release and surrender. 

To begin recognition: Take a deep breathe, relax, go silent and make the Mental Contact with Universal Life Energy first. …..

Buying into Pride – Lesson 12 of 27 Lessons in Science of Being

Trying to cope? Stress is addictive! Here comes relief with RRS

So many of us are feeling stressed! …. especially during these times of covid and social unrest. Many people are doing double duties ….. parents working from home and simultaneously schooling their children! Some of us have been been laid-off but still have mortgages and bills to pay.

 We’ve become stress, if we weren’t already, but stress blocks us from our peak performance! It’s a habit of survival mode! We don’t purposely become addicted to stress, but it’s something known to us ….. familiar. We may even believe we should be stressed …. it’s our reputation on the line after all! Yet …..  stress is actually abnormal. 

And though stress has physical symptoms and even produces hormones like cortisol that can make us physically ill and fat ….. stress is a mental consciousness issue. Calm, collected and confident is our natural state, which puts us in top performance condition. And we can return to our natural state with conscious intent.

Relaxation will give limited relief of stress, but we must get to the source of stress ….. which is emotional ties like anger, fear and resentment ….. in order to rise above it.

Consider these 4 simple methods to get relief!

# 1 – The simplest thing to do when we are tempted to get stressed is to do the opposite. Breathe in the calm and loving energy of Universal Life Energy. Mind is unable to stop itself from circling in thoughts and feelings even if we tell it to “stop thinking!” We need higher help.

If you felt the pressure of stress come from someone else, like your boss, coworkers or partner, send them Light filled with loving, compassionate thoughts. And mentally negate stress by saying and aligning with something like, “Stress has no power over me. I am calm, collected and loving.”

#2 – Do something else physically:  Move ….. walk to a quiet place if possible ….. preferably in nature. Pause ….. take a deep breathe …. several. Deep breathing naturally induces relaxation ….. and calms the mind and emotions. Moving the body and coming into it mentally by breathing takes the energies from thoughts and feelings.

#3 – Contact Universal Life Energy. IT is a great gift of Our Father. It can help us surrender to Unconditional Love that is within us before we may even remember it.

#4 – Move into a higher level of consciousness with sincere intent from pride into courage ….. by mentally envisioning dropping stress ….. release stress like you would a pencil from your hand, or like a block you burn in the pure fire of Unconditional Love of Universal Life Energy. 

And to release the deeper emotional causes of stress consider the method below.

We have been unconsciously programmed …

like a computer and conditioned to stress because of our mental naivety …. perhaps for thousands of years. We’ve seen adults experience it when we were children. We’ve seen co-workers experience it. It may be programmed in our DNA and cell memories that still causes us “fight, flight, freeze” reactions. This is when contact with Universal Life Energy is invaluable because it naturally harmonizes fear, the deeper emotion. 

Even though others, our boss and co-workers can become stressed, remember …… no-one can make us stressed ….. just like no-one can make us mad….. it’s what we allow. Be conscious of  emotional contagion! The energies of stress can enter the subconsciousness to grow unconsciously making us feel uneasy most of the time!

Questions to get to the bottom of it! 

If we face it ….. the job or issue at hand itself doesn’t cause stress ….. it’s the meaning we give to it! It’s our own internal feelings about it. It’s personal! And we feel personally obligated to fulfill expectations.

The mind created this problem of stress ….. but can’t control it. We can’t control our thoughts ….. our feelings! One emotion can cause a thousand thoughts! We want to get to the bottom of the emotion that causes all the thinking ….. recognition, release and surrender ….(RRS  …  🙂

To begin recognition: Take a deep breathe, relax, go silent and make the Mental Contact. Come into the present moment and observe in a detached state ‘the thinker’ before questioning.

These questions are more of what rather than why ….. mostly because why questions are abstract and we can get blogged down in memories and associated feelings. What questions can lead back to the base emotion without entanglement!

Questions like: For what? So what? Of what? Then what? 

What does it feel like? What are the physical symptoms? Sometimes simply observing the physical symptoms or sensations and labeling it like ‘pressure around the heart’ or ‘difficult to take deep breathes’ (the one I often experienced) makes it easier to recognize! Pressure for what? For what purpose?

The primary question:  What’s the payoff?

The ego will fight tooth and nail at this point! It feeds on the belief of stress and hyped up emotions to keep it alive and kicking!

What’s the payoff for feeling stressed? …. To feel better about ourselves? …. To feel like we’re at least doing something?

Does it fill the hole of low self-esteem? What for? To compensate for insecurities, shame, guilt, fear? 

Fear of what? ….. Fear of not being good enough ….. not being fit to be loved, lovable?

Staying in self-analysis and question mode is not the objective and we could circle and get trapped there if we dilly dally ….. so consider moving to more beneficial steps!

Try this …..nothing has any meaning other than what we give to it!

It may helpful to look at A Course in Miracles which is viewed by most spiritually minded people, It has Christian connotations, but can be used by anyone! You can listen to YouTube explanations to learn what the coarse is all about.

There are 365 lessons …. one practice for each day of the year. Hence, I am sharing the first 10 lessons in the workbook, which I found to be very helpful to release arrogance and ‘know it all’ attitudes which are related to stress:  so practice thinking and realizing as per instruction several times a day!

 – Lesson 1, Day 1 – Look at any object in the room or outside and say/realize – “Nothing I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place) means anything.” …. page 23 of workbook.

– Lesson 2 – “I have given everything I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place) all the meaning that it has for me.”

– Lesson 3 – “I do not understand anything I see in the room (on this street, from this window, in this place).”

– Lesson 4 – ” These thoughts do not mean anything. They are like the things I see in the room (on this street, from this window, in this place).”

Lesson 5 – ” I am never upset for the reason I think.”

– Lesson 6 – ” I am upset because I see something that is not there.”

– Lesson 7 – “I see only the past.” (It takes at least a split second for anything we see to travel to the brain and process! Hence …. a true statement. And stress and expectations are based in the past!)

– Lesson 8 – “My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.”

– Lesson 9 – “I see nothing as it is now.”

– Lesson 10 – “My thoughts do not mean anything.”

It may be helpful to write these down and keep a journal to record realization of release of subconscious conditioning programmed from the past.

Release and surrender

Recognition of stress and release of emotional causes are essential processing, yet the primary one is surrender ….. surrender ourselves ….. our thinking and emotions ….. our expectations …… to Unconditional Love. When we allow ourselves to recognize, release and surrender to Love …… we discover our innate courage and real security!

There is sureness and gentleness rather than hurry when we release stress because we are conscious that there is always plenty of time to do what is essential. We trust in the Great Law!

What we gain 

We can view stress, or any other emotional issue, by finding the value in it …. by giving it new meaning …. by viewing it as an opportunity to learn and grow.

The release of stress gives us the opportunity to surrender to Unconditional Love ….. and regain our peace of mind. This is a great gift ….. because we have also lightened the burden of defensiveness, resentment anger, and self-punishment. We are less vulnerable and fearful.

We are calmer, happier and more powerful.
