Your emotions are your guidance of whether you are in alignment with life or are in a place of discord. Whenever you feel “bad”, it’s an indication that at that moment you are thinking, or doing, something that is not in alignment with your true nature. Usually it’s never the doing that’s the problem, it’s the thought behind it. Thoughts of guilt, jealousy, anger, hatred, resentment, spite, inferiority, lackful-ness and worry, produce emotions that feel “bad” in the body – this an indication that these thoughts are not congruent with your true nature, with who you really are.
Aligning with life by understanding the guidance of your emotions
At any moment you can either stay aligned with life or stay disconnected. When you stay in alignment with life, good fortune flows into your existence and your reality starts shifting towards a constant reflection of well-being. Staying disconnected with life creates unpleasant realities that end up fueling even more negative thoughts, creating a vicious cycle of unwanted reality.
It’s easy to align with life once you understand the guidance that is offered by your own emotions. If you are feeling “bad”, just look for the thought that caused this feeling, and then let go of it. The bad feeling is an indication that the source does not want you to focus on the thought that produced the feeling. If you continue focusing on that thought, you will continue to feel bad, and ultimately end up manifesting something unpleasant, and unwanted, in your life.
Letting go of a thought simply means that you stop giving it your attention. It’s simple, but most people find it really difficult to shift their attention from a negative thought. Just practice letting go of your “focus” every time a negative though arises. Relax your focus so that you don’t contract on the negative thought. The thought will just pass through your space of consciousness like a cloud. It may come back again, but it would be much weaker than before.
Choose good feeling thoughts or no thoughts
Ideally you’d want to transcend the mind altogether so that it does influence you with its constant noise. In the interim however, you can find relief by focusing on good feeling thoughts or staying in the space of silence (no thoughts). Be conscious enough to not give attention to negative thoughts. Every time a negative thought arises in your mind just let go of it, don’t fuel it with your attention.
With time you will have enough “presence” power in you to transcend the mind’s influence altogether. You will no longer be pushed around by thoughts, and there will be more and more spaces between your thoughts. As you rest in the space of your being, your mind takes a secondary place, and true intelligence can then operate in your life.
