SOS BOOK (Chapter 4.3) Using our emotions as a guide – a strategy for success!
How can we MONITOR our life situation from day to day? Do we have an instant & accurate GUIDE? Could our emotions accurately guide us? If so, this would be a good strategy to use for personal success.
OUR EMOTIONS ARE A QUICK READING OF OUR IMMEDIATE SITUATION.
Our external life situation is a general reflection of our inner vibe! We get a general idea of how we’re going, by how happy & joyful we feel. However, the most IMMEDIATE INDICATOR of ‘where we are at’ in any situation are OUR EMOTIONS. This give us an instant reading or read-out of our inner vibe! They indicate what we ‘really feel’, at a deep emotive level. It reflects the exact situation we are thinking about.
So, it’s beneficial to keep in touch with this level of pure emotion and to ‘tune in’ to this level of inner guidance. This can instantly help us! Our pure emotions are a rapid & accurate guide for decision making.
OUR EMOTIONS ARE NOT OUR THINKING.
Our pure emotions are however NOT our thought process. It’s NOT the narrative or ‘the drama’ that we generate around a situation. The ‘pure emotion’ component is what remains when we stop thinking about ‘the story’ and what else has subsequently occurred. That additional thinking and storytelling is the just narrative that we secondarily build around the pure emotion.
CHOOSE THE PLAN WITH THE HIGHEST VIBRATION.
The quality of an associated emotion accurately reflects how we really feel about an issue at that moment. It reflects the corresponding level of energetic vibration. That’s our inner ‘vibe’. The higher this vibe the better! That’s how we tell we are on track for what we really want! We just choose the thought or action plan which has the higher vibration. That sounds like a good strategy for personal success!
REGULARLY REVIEW PROGRESS BY CHECKING ALIGNMENT.
We should regularly review our life progress to determine whether we are still on track! We can then modify our life direction a little or even a lot! If we continue to ‘feel bad’, we are considerably out of alignment with our intended path. This situation is sometimes termed ‘resistance’. Our general life circumstances will also reflect this resistance in a more general way. We won’t feel happy, supported or at inwardly at peace. Using all this guidance, we can tell when we are NOT on track!
RANDOM SPOT CHECKS CAN ALSO HELP.
Ideally, we would also do spot checks of our progress– for example, while we are travelling, or waiting for our next commitment: We could ask our self these questions: ‘Is this genuinely where I want to be? Will this inter-action contribute in some positive way towards my wanted destination? Do I really feel good about what I am doing?’
EMOTIONS ARE UNDERVALUED BY WIDER SOCIETY.
What we FEEL at an emotional level is usually the first indicator of what’s right for us. This estimation is not as comprehensive as our deep contemplation or meditation, but it is accurate and very fast!
The immense value of this STRATEGY can be a hard to grasp. This is especially so for many businesspeople! It’s so different from what many currently accept or believe. Being ‘too emotional’ or ‘too sensitive’ is often thought of as a hinderance to business success. It certainly is counterproductive being TOO REACTIVE or HYSTERICAL. But that is not what we are talking about! Effectively using our emotions for inner guidance is a valuable strategy. It’s an individual skill! You might have to re-read this explanation or further contemplate this to fully appreciate this difference.
COMBINE ‘EMOTIONAL GUIDANCE’ WITH ‘DELIBERATE MANIFESTATION’.
In the previous sub-chapter, we discussed the strategy of ‘Deliberate Manifestation’ for personal success. We can combine this with emotional guidance for additional success. This can help us create a successful month, week or day that is most in alignment with our optimal path. It is also possible to fine-tune our goal, as we learn more about what we really want. This is an ongoing and interactive process!
WE KNOW WE’RE ON TRACK BY OUR INNER FEELING OF HAPPINESS & JOY.
Feeling those pure emotions, signals & confirms we are on the right path! Experiencing Joy and enjoyment of the process is an integral part of our Journey. This also verifies we are right on track!
LIVE A FULL & VIBRANT LIFE.
Companionship, sensuality and creativity are all integral to a successful and rewarding life. We should actively choose to have fun and time out to rejuvenate ourselves. If we intuit an experience will not be helpful we should avoid that encounter. We can tell because this situation will arouse negative emotions such as pride, anger, jealousy or fear etc.
AVOID TRIVIAL ACTIVITIES THAT TAKES US OFF OUR TRUE PATH.
Similarly, if we feel an encounter will be trivial, without any sensual or creative benefit, then we should avoid that too. An example would be gossip or ‘bitch session’, or a drinking or ‘brag session’. We should politely ‘send our apologies’ to these old conditioned ways of living. Instead we should actively pursue our own true path through our own autonomous executive control. We are a sovereign & independent being! We do have the free will to choose our own thoughts!
CREATING A DELIBERATE DESTINY IS A FOREIGN CONCEPT FOR MANY.
Few are prepared to make that commitment to a destiny that we deliberately craft for ourselves. Most don’t know about this or don’t believe it’s even possible. Many do not trust themselves or know what they really want. Very few are prepared to ‘surrender to’ their inner guidance and dedicate their entire lives towards one purpose.
IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO START.
The practicalities involved in personal transformation do however require some time & practice. The journey is always unique, with our own specific challenges to overcome. So the sooner we start our life-quest the better! This book outlines some strategies that may help. It can boost the inspiration & confidence required. It may help reduce the trial and error component of any new process.
Are there more strategies for success that we can add? What if we could unlock our hidden talent and capacity? That would be so valuable! Discussion of this next strategy starts in Chapter 4.4 of this SOS Book.
