Movin’ on Up the Emotional Scale to have a Better Life
The Law of Attraction is not just about using tools and techniques to improve your life it is about changing your whole lifestyle. A lifestyle that once implemented puts us in control of our lives through learning how to raise our emotional state of well-being.
Learning how to move up the emotional guidance scale is the first step to a more joyful life, one day at a time.
Step One: Look at the scale below and try and determine where you are right now, how was your day, how do you feel right at this very moment in time?
You may be experiencing more than one emotion, whatever they are, write them down.
STEP TWO: We need to understand that how we feel is influenced by what we think or perceive about our current situation. Often times we suppress our feelings for fear of showing our emotions, this can lead to depression, anxiety and other emotional issues. We also pick up “vibes” from other people who are going through emotional issues and, as human beings, we can’t help but be empathic and tend to take on those emotions. As humans we are entitled to have feelings, they are a part of us, so acknowledge them, let them out, express them. Sometimes we feel hatred, greed, jealousy, anger, guilt, insecurity and other negative emotions, but having these negative emotions can also lead to negative situations, bad relationships, sickness and health issues. So, let’s first understand how we feel, if it is negative we can learn to flip the switch and instead of going down the rabbit hole of negative emotions, learn to go up the scale to positive emotions. You are probably wondering, how do I do that? Well, you do it by climbing the emotional scale, one rung at a time. Below are some examples of things to get you climbing that ladder.
#1 – Listen to Music, that’s right, everyone in their life has had good memories that a song brings back. That song is connected to those memories get out of your seat and dance. Maybe it’s that one song that you just can’t help but sing along to. When you listen to that song, feel those good emotions, if you dance, get up and dance around the house, if you can’t help but sing, sing, don’t be afraid, if you feel uncomfortable with others around, go in the basement, go outside, go somewhere that you can be alone and DANCE and SING to that song, feel your mood lift, do it till you can’t dance or sign anymore!
#2 – Write it down. Give appreciation for the 10 little things you have in life every day by writing it down, every morning is the start of a whole new day, a new chapter of your life, a new beginning, how do you want this one to start? Start by giving thanks for what you have. No matter how bad your life is, no matter how difficult things seem, there is always something to be thankful for. They can be simple things at first. “I am thankful I am breathing”; “I am thankful I am alive and have a chance to change my life”; “I am thank for [insert name] for being my [friend/mother/father/husband/wife/lover] for being there for me”; “I am thankful to have food”, you get the idea, build your gratitude list from there. Remember, there is always someone out there that has it worse than you do. Be thankful for what you have, after you write them down, read them back to yourself (this is important that you hear yourself speak these words of gratitude) and feel grateful for what you do have. Next, at the end of the day, again write down 10 things that happened that day that you can be grateful for, can be as simple as “I lived through this day”; “I made it home safe today”; “I had food to eat today”, etc., and same as before, read them back to yourself and feel appreciation for what you do have.
#3 – Random Acts of Kindness. Now this can be something simple, but it must be genuine, it can be something like, you see a woman on the bus with nice boots, so you complement her on her boots. It can be that person at the store that you open the door and hold it for. It could be buying coffee for someone you work with, or better yet, the bum you pass every day on the street. Before you know it, you will notice that you are receiving random acts of kindness back, but remember when you do an act of kindness it has to be with the expectation that you will NOT get anything back and are doing it out of the kindness of your heart, because it makes you feel good.
I hope this has helped you, remember, be kind to yourself and others. The Universe/God will always help you, but first you must help yourself.
