We can all agree that the emotional bodies of most of the world are out of whack. We are a reactive species. The reactive level is where most of us fail emotionally. We are familiar with our reactions to the daily news, to violence all around the world, to the insane and out-of-control actions of people, to the grief we witness all around us, to our own personal tragedies, and more.

We react to our sense of powerlessness to do anything to help the destructive conditions in our world or to our own personal struggles. Equally, we react to expressions of love and kindness, to acts of courage, to the birth of babies, and to pets and animals.

We are a collective of emotions. We are capable of experiencing love, attraction, joy, gratitude, devotion, fear, worry, rage, frustration, anger, guilt, sorrow, blame, euphoria, and much more.

When we experience a positive emotion, we want it to last forever, but when we experience a negative emotion, we want to get rid of it as soon as possible. In fact, we have invented a multitude of solutions to evoke euphoric states as well as suppress negative or painful ones. However, the fact we can feel at all is an amazing gift, but clearly, we have not mastered these emotional bodies!

Feelings are filled with deep spiritual information

Each type of feeling, whether positive or negative, can take us to a deep place within, a place that connects us to our personal and universal heart space. Compassion resides here. Forgiveness, love, understanding and wisdom live here. To get to this place requires allowing ourselves to fall deeply into a feeling, to allow it to be for as long as it needs to be, without denial or repression.

To get the maximum benefit from our amazing ability to feel, we must not deny it or force it to be an expanded version of itself. We must accept our amazing ability to feel without wanting to change or reject our capacity in any way.

Feelings are a form of energy

Feelings are a form of energy and because of this, they go through their own process of evolution. If we thwart this process, emotions get congealed within us and become illnesses and mental stress.

Feelings expand our knowledge

Feelings expand our knowledge of the many aspects of life. Feelings give us our sensitivity and self-awareness. ‘Falling into’ an emotional state brings us into the wholeness of ourselves. We can feel everywhere within us and observe how that emotion is affecting how we function. All emotions are energy.

As we feel them deeply and observe their movement through us without stopping that movement, we eventually arrive at a place of deep peace and understanding. The emotion gets to complete its journey of evolutionary movement,and we are enriched.

The ability to feel deeply opens our higher senses. Our humanity is expanded, we become a source of loving-kindness, and we are one step further to God-Realization.
