“Emotions and the Future”

I shared a little bit with you in my last post about the importance of healing the past so that you can bring your attention and focus into the present moment. What about the future and how your feelings about it pulls you out of the present moment? How does that affect your ability to create what you want?

The difficulty many of us get into with this is that oftentimes, the emotions we feel about future events are actually negative. You may believe you are feeling positive emotions about the future and what you want to manifest, but your drive to create a particular affect is motivated by fear. This undermines your attempts to create a more positive outcome.

It may be that you don’t want what you are experiencing in your life now or that you want something you think is better. Again, your non-acceptance of the present is keeping you out of feelings of gratitude and locked into emotions that carry lower, denser vibrations that bring you more negative experiences.

There is a sense of bliss in every moment, every situation, and every emotion you experience (even the ones you label as bad) depending on how you choose to see it. When you shift your perceptions about anything, the emotion will shift. When you send out higher frequencies of emotions such as love, acceptance, and gratitude, the experience, person, etc, is allowed to shift (or leave). So, how do you do this?

You can simply ask God, Love, the universe, the Goddess, Source (whatever you choose to call your Higher Power) to help you to see things differently. You’ll be surprised how quickly and easily your emotions will shift just by asking.

Sometimes, there may be a process of healing your mind that needs to take place for this perceptual shift to happen. The change must happen within you first. Be honest with yourself and take responsibility for everything in your life and know that whatever you are experiencing is there to teach you. Perhaps, the lesson is acceptance and compassion for all things.

This simple request has worked for me over and over again. Let me know how it works for you in the comments area here on my site. And don’t forget to remember your passion.
