The Second Pillar – Emotional Being
What is this? This Emotional being? Emotions? This magic that can make our world brighter than the light itself filled with rainbows and dancing unicorns while it’s raining chocolate. On the other side, it can make your reality worse than the one where pizza, ice cream and the TV Show “fRiEnDs” weren’t invented.
What is this powerful thing, how does it affect us so drastically and manipulates how we see things? This is really hard to explain so I’ll just ask you to follow me here. Our Emotional being dictates how we see our reality and in the same time creates the reality we see.
The Emotional being comes from the word “emotion” which comes from the French word “émouvoir” that means “to stir up”. Why, to stir up? Well I don’t know what the French meant in 1579 but it “paints quite a picture” about what are emotions, Emotional being, feelings, vibes, moods.
To stir up, it means to set something in motion, to change the direction, just like the emotions set in motion the things that are about to come, and change our perception and direction. Smart French, or pervert to a level where they sound smart.
What are emotions? Emotions are the most addictive drug that exists. They are vibrations that affect us and the world around us. As you may know by now, everything vibrates in a certain level of frequency.
When we look at the smallest particles that exist we see pure energy that vibrates. Everything vibrates in its own frequency and that is what creates the illusion of separation. In truth, we are all one, great symphony.
The vibrations we send are ether positive, harmonious or negative, unpleasant. Take a song that makes you peaceful while you listen to it. It brings joy and positive vibes. The sounds that the song vibrates are harmonious to your vibrations.
That’s why when you are sad, you like to listen to sad ballads because the vibrations of that type of songs are alike with your vibrations. Now imagine the sounds of machines and alarms and crashes. Those sounds are unpleasant aren’t they? Well their vibrations are and you respond to those sounds negatively because of their vibrations.
Emotions are waves and we are senders and receivers. Our vibrations interact with other vibrations changing them and themselves. The vibrations that we pick create chemicals in our bodies and our bodies react on these chemicals. These are what we call feelings.
The feelings create new vibrations, “kids” of the previous vibrations and it all goes the same until some variable changes the vibrations we send and the vibrations that we get are different.
Emotional being is the complete image of the vibrations and chemicals that we “juggle” with. It is the fuel that drives us and the “eyes” that we see the world with.
It is the tool to show The Universe what we want, what we don’t want, where do we happen to be in the moment, what we value, pretty much everything that is happening inside and outside of us and how it affects us.
Why? Why do we feel at all? Wouldn’t be easier if we just lived our lives without feelings and follow some logical scheme? It would be easier, wouldn’t be? We don’t get affected from vibrations and we live like robots.
Live, work, eat, sleep, drink, breed, die, build, raise, teach… the world will be more stabile for sure. But what about us? But what about the essence of life? Life would be something like explaining a song without the song ever being played.
The purpose of our Emotional being is to create the gravity in our lives. To make the meaning our Spiritual being gives into creation. It is the music of life, the fuel that drives us through time and space. The tension that pulls us further than we couldn’t have ever thought of going.
Our Emotional being is what colors our life and what helps us color it. It is what separates good from evil, Ying from Yang, the line between them itself. In the same time it is what shows the good in evil and the evil in good, the shadows between them.
Asking what is the purpose of our Emotional being is like asking what is the purpose of painting a picture. You can live it black and white, it would be easier, but the picture would be so much pleasant and complete with colors.
It is like asking, what is the reason of buying and eating a chocolate icecream on your way to work? You could just go and do your work, it is much simpler.
Our job is not to try and deny feeling but to try and learn how to properly use it. Our biggest mistake is that we work for feelings, and not with feelings. We forget that we create the vibrations and we don’t need anyone nor anything to send the vibrations we search to find.
If we train our mind to get affected only by the vibrations we send and shape the negative vibrations we receive into positive, we will be truly happy and we’ll share that positive energy with the world.
Our mission is to follow our Soul’s code and our Dreams. That is our destination. Our Emotional being is the fuel that we drive with through time and space to get to our destination.
Somewhere along the ride we forget this. We focus on getting the fuel. We drive to get fuel, and not get fuel to drive to our destination.Soon enough we get lost in our way. We forget that as soon as we need fuel, if we drive on the right road to our destination, we will be given the fuel we need to reach our destination. It is a law like gravity and electro-magnetism.
The Emotional being is created by the Emotions or vibrations, and by the Feelings or chemicals that our body produces. The feelings can be long-term or short-term. Short-term feelings are usually things that our Physical being is responsible for.
For the other type of feelings it’s our Spiritual being who is responsible. Feelings like love and happiness usually come from our Spiritual being, feelings like pain and relaxation usually come from our Physical being.
Emotions can be positive or negative and they are what sets our perception of reality. Positive emotions create positive feelings and even if we stumble on something negative, it is absorbed and transformed into positive as long as we have that constant that brought those positive vibrations in the first place. That is what creates the mood.
If you vibrate long enough with a certain frequency of emotions, you will create a Mood that is compatible to what you feel.
Your mood is the result of some constant that creates your vibrations and chemicals, the mindset they gave you, and what reactions your body has. Most of your body is addition of moods. It is the product of what and how you feel. What and how you feel depends 50% on your Spiritual being, 40% on you Mental being and 10% on your Physical being.
Thoughts are catalysts of vibrations and feelings. How you perceive a situation with your senses creates a set of thoughts. Your mind is a filter that transforms the thought into action. Actions depend on your abilities in the situation, your Spiritual approval and values. A big part in our actions has our egos. So you see, thoughts create actions. Thoughts are very powerful.
Feelings can be described by 5 factors, Time, Modality, Tempo, Involvement, and Intensity. The Time factor shows when is the source of the feeling, in the past, present or future.
Modality shows from what the feeling is created, what is its trigger word, to what do you link it. The model of the feeling is shown by the modality factor, triggers, actions, links, chemicals, and changes. It shows an image of a certain feeling.
Third factor, The Tempo shows the speed of your actions that will come from your feeling. Also, it shows how long the feeling will last, slow tempo means longer feeling and slower actions, fast tempo means short feeling and fast actions.
The Involvement shows the awareness of your responsibility for the feeling. Feeling stressed because you had an accident has high involvement, feeling stressed because you saw an accident has low involvement.
The last factor, Intensity shows how much the feeling affects you. How deep and how strong the feeling is for you.
How do we feel? Let’s understand this process. How do we end up happy or angry or sad asking ourselves if we deserve to feel like that? This is the process of feeling.
First of all, understand that the Mental being is the center where everything happens. It is the crossroads of your Physical, Spiritual and Emotional being. It is something like a motherboard, it controls and connects almost every process.
Whatever you sense from your reality goes into your mind in a form of information. This information is first evaluated and then filtered by your Spirit. This means that the information is being shaped by the filters of your Spirit.
The beliefs, the values, dreams, experience, sometimes even from your Ego. This process gives a meaning and an image of the information. The way you look at the image depends on your perception which comes from your mindset.
This happens in the back of your mind, your subconscious. Your subconscious is where your Spirit and mind connect. Imagine the mind like a hall with 2 parts.
The first part is the subconscious and the second part is the conscious. After the meaning and image are created they go into the conscious part of the hall. In this transition, your subconscious orders your body to create a certain chemical, feeling compatible to the image’s meaning.
When the chemical is created your body reacts and sends information to your mind that the command has been done. You feel. The reaction from the chemical tunes the frequency of vibrations that you send.
Meanwhile in the conscious part of your mind, the meaning, image and your body’s reaction are evaluated again. Here, your mind, you decide what actions are possible to be taken.
After your actions has been chosen, your mind.. yeah, again evaluating. While your conscious is evaluating the possible actions, the image and meaning transit again into your subconscious to let the conscious do its best work.
The tricky part is here. If the chemical’s intensity is very strong, the image and meaning stay stuck in your conscious slowing its process of choosing the right action. You think only of the problem and not on the actions you need to take.
The problem sticks around longer and its meaning becomes bigger and bigger which increases the feeling’s intensity. This puts you in an emotional loop.
What you need is ether luck, that the problem will take care by itself, or different approach to the image, which will create a completely different feelings and actions.
Approaching the image with a different attitude requires different thoughts which will produce different feelings and vibes. Why vibes? Because they determine how do you see the image of your problem.
Positive vibes show you more solutions than negative vibes. The glass will become half full instead of being half empty.
After seeing the image differently, the emotional loop will stop because you’ll get new feelings, less intense. You’ll let your mind do its work and chose an appropriate action.
The Emotional pillar is what creates the gravity in life. The colors of the rainbow and the taste of food. Everything that means something to you, everything that made you hurt or laugh or cry, everything that is worth living for and dying for is because of your Emotional being.
It is the thing that uses what your Spiritual being stands for and implements it into the physical world. The alarm clock that makes you get up from bed every morning.
The greatest paradox in life is exactly this, while living for something produced by our Emotional being, we destroy ourselves in the process.
This is because we forget that we create emotions and we should be able to control what we create. Instead we search to find objects or situations or whatever we can link to an emotion so when we experience it we feel a certain way.
The Emotional being exists to create emotions you like to feel, not to search for something outside of you that will tell you how to feel.
Emotional being is what creates the energy, everything else is just an ingredient used in the process. Emotions are vibrations, feelings are energy. The kind of energy that drives us all. Physical interaction can create energy too, like eating, drinking, etc.
But the energy from Emotional interaction is far more powerful. Healthy Emotional being’s interact with the Spiritual being and create energy based on the universal truth. It uses what your Spirit gives meaning to. It creates emotions based on that.
Balance is everything. If you balance your Emotional being and control what you feel and think, you can do anything. When I say anything, I really mean, anything, everything you want to do. Don’t be afraid to feel. Fear, hate, grief, feel anything your being wants you to. Don’t block your feelings, let them flow.
To control what you feel is not to block what you feel. It’s to be able to create whatever feeling you think will help you in a certain situation. But if you feel something you haven’t planned is not bad, contrary, it’s the essence of humans. It is what creates magic.
The Emotional being is what feeds and nurtures the Spirit and Soul. When we ask what is the reason of life, the answer we seek gets meaning right here, in the Emotional being.
