To truly BE who you are it’s important to embrace ALL of who you are!
Fact: Love, joy, happiness, and passion are energy vibrations.
Fact: Boredom, apathy, sadness and ANGER are energy vibrations.
Can you have and embrace ALL of those emotions and feelings; The good the bad and the ugly? The positive AND the negative?
As human beings we have a full spectrum of emotions, feelings and energy vibrations that are not only a part of us but a part of being human. Denying, ignoring or stifling any of these vibrations limits you and in essence you are denying a part of yourself and the human experience. While it is true that as spiritual beings we are pure love, we took a body this lifetime to have a human experience and no matter how much you don’t want it to happen the fact remains that as humans we get angry, sad, bored, apathetic etc.
Most of us are taught not to get angry and to forgive those who have treated us badly. Forgiveness is wonderful BUT forgiving doesn’t mean allowing someone to treat you like a doormat or invalidate you. You cannot control what others say or do but it IS ok to get angry! It is also OK to use your anger as a healing. Here comes the tricky part; Allowing your anger to flow in YOUR space without lashing out or sending it out to someone.
Allowing your anger, or any other emotion or feeling for that matter, to flow through you is empowering. Giving yourself permission to have these perceived negative feelings is a step toward growing and expanding positive feelings and emotions like love, joy and happiness. The reason I used anger as an example is because it is one of the emotions that many people have very little permission to have. For you it may be some other emotion.
TRUTH: BODIES HAVE EMOTIONS
We all want to keep our focus on love and light and being happy (at least I’m in hopes that all of you reading this want those vibrations in the forefront) but the laws of nature need balance. ALL your emotions whether in the emotional body (energetic) or the physical body serve a purpose. From a young age boys are taught not to cry and girls not to get angry (or whatever else you were taught to stifle) but denying a part of you denies a portion of the other part. There is always a dichotomy and you can’t have one without the other. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton’s laws apply here too!
There is day and night, two sides to every coin, and a plethora of emotions & feelings each with a direct opposite that make up our very BEing-ness. Having your awareness and embracing those dark or negative parts of you in addition to light and love gives you the ability to expand your human experience.
You cannot, nor is it necessary to, control what you are feeling. If you are doing this you are in resistance and it’s going to fester and may ever cause you to get stuck. Allow feelings & emotions to bubble up and BE. Feel your feelings & emotions, embrace them, acknowledge them then release. Believe it or not the more you embrace and acknowledge what you are feeling the faster you are able to release it!
Embracing your anger and acknowledging it allows you to love that much more. Feeling your sadness allows you to experience more happiness. Having a good cry makes the laughter that much more joyful. Embrace the reality of human experience! HAVE all that you are! BE who you are! Accept and acknowledge ALL your feelings and emotions as a part of you!~Shine Your Light Debbie
