"If the world's a veil of tears, Smile till rainbows span it."
~ Lucy Larcom
Do you hide how you are feeling from the rest of the world? Are you ashamed of your emotions? Do you feel that having or showing your emotions to others is a sign of weakness?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then you are among the majority of people in our current society. We are taught from an early age that showing emotions is weak…that it is unacceptable. Nothing can be further from the truth.
Your emotions are very important. How you are feeling is an indicator of how lined up you are with the greater part of you that remains as source energy, with your higher self.
If you are feeling good, then you are in alignment with what you have become at a broader perspective. You are letting things flow to you and you are expanding in ways that you cannot even imagine. Good feeling emotions like love and joy are indicators that you are allowing yourself to become that which you have been asking for.
When you are feeling bad or negative emotions, then you are not lined up with source, and this is a sign that you are resisting what you are asking for.
Either way, your emotions are your built in indicator of your alignment with source. They tell you if you are moving toward or if you are resisting what you truly desire.
So let the emotions be a part of your life…but be aware of them. Let the laughter come. Let the tears flow. Understand that this is just your built in barometer of your alignment. Accept that you feel like you do, but try to understand what it means.
Once you become aware of how you are feeling, you can start to make conscious adjustment to the way you feel. The adjustments will be small…it is hard to do it all at once…and I wouldn’t recommend it. As a matter of fact, it is usually far out of your capacity (from your limited perspective) to travel from one end of the spectrum to the other in a rapid manner.
Instead of making big jumps, try taking small steps. Reach for a better feeling thought. The changes are subtle, but you will begin to recognize the small changes, and from the new emotional state, you can again reach for a better feeling thought. It keeps going, and it gets easier and easier as you move toward the good feeling thoughts.
Whether or not you hide your emotions from the rest of the world, don’t hide them from yourself. Recognize how you feel, and understand that it is just an indicator of your alignment with your higher self. Be aware, and with that awareness you can take the small steps you need to begin to feel better, and soon you will feel yourself come into alignment, and life will feel very good to you.
Let the tears flow.
