I am re-reading a great little book titled Ask and It Is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks.
There are many awesome examples, powerful tools, and easy to apply methods in this book. The first time I read it, I put it down thinking that it was a nice book. This second time around I am really getting in to the application of the tools and methods. One of the many incredible tools helps one to recognize what vibration level you are on, relative to your emotions.
This is a process that will allow you to begin letting go of negative feelings. I love this tool as it is in the form of a scale of emotions and thought patterns. These patterns are listed from most negative to most positive. For example, joy is among the top level positive feelings. Depression is listed among the lowest feelings. As you identify what feelings you are experiencing at any given moment in time, you are able to choose, consciously, to increase the vibrational level for those feelings, by moving up the scale of feelings.
Even though it is a scale and the feelings are ranked, the lower feelings are not bad, they just create different outcomes, based on whether we focus on them.
For example, if you find that a particular thought makes you feel angry, then that feeling represents a certain vibration that you are experiencing in that moment. Once you realize the impact of that feeling of anger, you can then choose to either change the thought, or change your feeling about the thought.
It is powerful and it is empowering to know that you can totally control your momentary destiny, in that way. By controlling your momentary destiny, you ultimately control your life long destiny.
Based on my example, this specific tool allows you to let go of what is restricting your feelings of joy and happiness, which gives you more control. The following was my experience just this morning.
During my walk this morning, I was thinking about a contract I am about to sign to lead a not-for-profit organization down a new path of success. As I thought about the contract and the current Chair, I noticed that I began to feel anxious, even bothered by some of the actions of that Chair. Realizing this allowed me to choose to take a different path with this potential client. That choice helped me to feel more empowered about working with that client.
I will be joyful as I meet with this client this morning, and I am choosing to only move in a direction that will bring me joy with this situation. If I stay with that vibration, then the law of attraction will bring that same vibration back to my world. This means that I will have to be conscious and aware of my feelings throughout the entire meeting with this client, which is most empowering. Its is awesome!
So I would like to highly recommend that you get Ask and It Is Given. This book can literally change your life, if you practice the methods it offers.
If you have just begun your letting go of stuff journey, Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks is a tool you want to have in your personal empowerment box.
Until the next post… take great care.
