Spiritual Topic for March 2022 - Honouring Emotions and Vibrations

Updated: Mar 31



Honouring Emotions and Vibrations


Overview


From a spiritual perspective, many believe that humans are made up of spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical bodies, all combined. This month, we will focus primarily on our emotional body, deepening the topic of vibration to explore how to keep one’s vibration high while simultaneously honoring one’s emotions.


Part of the human experience is to balance our spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical bodies, which can be easier said than done. Our physical and mental bodies may contend with illness, and our physical, mental and emotional bodies can encounter low frequencies such as negativity and fear. At times, life on Earth in a physical body can be a challenge for our spiritual souls, which may feel dimmed or disconnected from Source.  


Each of our four bodies are interconnected. The emotional body includes our feelings,

which promotes our thoughts which create our reality. When we have a healthy emotional body, we exude emotions of high vibrations—peace, joy, gratitude, love, etc. When our emotional body is fatigued and/or guided by ego, we emit low vibrations such as fear, anxiety, guilt, anger, etc.  


Our thoughts (mental) are expressions of our feelings (emotional.) When we think about someone we love or something we love to do, we feel good inside. When we think about something unpleasant, we don’t feel good. Ongoing pressures and challenging environments can wear one down and create long-term stress.


The universe responds to our choices—to our thoughts and feelings—and we attract more of what we focus on. We are responsible for our thoughts and feelings. When we take self-control and empower ourselves to choose positive emotions (or a more positive emotion and then another and another,) we raise our vibration. When we are in a high vibrational state and experiencing joy, it is impossible to at the same time experience depression, anger, fear, or any other negative emotion.


Because we are emotional and physical beings, it is unrealistic to remain in an artificially high vibrational state all the time. While we want to keep our thoughts positive, we do not want to ignore or suppress feelings that rise to the surface. In today’s world, most of us at least occasionally experience feelings of irritation, impatience, hopelessness and other less than desirable emotions. Also, we want to recognize that it’s not always external factors that affects our moods and emotions, but internal factors as well.


It can be harder to solve undesired feelings when they arise internally. When these feelings arise, it is important to recognize and honor them, and allow them to flow through you without letting them build up and take on a new gloomier form such as despair or depression. Please see the March Worksheet for strategies on how to help achieve this.  


We also want to avoid becoming so concerned about maintaining high vibrations that we avoid people who are struggling with difficult situations. One can be strong enough in their compassion and desire to help that they can support others without being brought down by negative energies. The key is observing low-frequency situations and offering compassion without taking on the lower vibrations.


A good strategy for managing negative emotions is identifying and acknowledging one’s emotions and accepting where one is. When one recognizes and honors their feelings in a non-judgmental way (even if it isn’t where one wants to be,) one can start to make conscious choices to move in the direction of their desired state. 


CC’s US Central Regional Coordinators, Poppy and Geoff Spencer, created and trademarked an Emotional Clock© to assist with this concept. One can use this clock to assist with identifying where one is and determining where one wants to be. One must have the courage and willingness to address these emotions—especially the less desirable feelings on the right side of the clock.


To illustrate, if you recognize you’re at “1:00—Confusion,” you have identified where you are while you’re in an open, curious, and non-judgmental space. This is the time to take positive action—conduct research, have an open and honest conversation, and/or look within and do some soul-searching. If you wait until you move to “2—Anxiety” or “3—Despair,” or anywhere within what Poppy and Geoff refer to as the “Bermuda Triangle” of “4—6,” it is a greater challenge to remain in a neutral, heart-centered space.


Remember that your thoughts, actions, and choices reflect your emotional state. Self-exploration can help one identify triggers and understand what people, situations, activities, and stimuli make you feel good and those that make you feel bad.


When people know themselves better, they recognize what elicits certain emotions and actions, and have an understanding of what makes them happy, calm, contented, and joyful. Recognizing what brings you peace and joy allows you to spend more time doing things that create your desired state.


We are all different and what brings one person joy may not be the same for another. Explore deep within to gain an understanding of what brings you joy, and spend more time on these things. Take time every day to engage in an activity that brings you joy, and thus, raises your vibration—whether it’s taking a walk in nature, sewing, reading, listening to music—or whatever it is that makes you happy.


Living in high vibration is about conscious choice and intention and it requires spiritual strength. When one connects with their personal spiritual strength, this strength flows to their emotional, mental and physical bodies as well.


Expressing a genuine desire for every being to live their best life and reach their highest potential will naturally lead you to higher vibrations. To get there is a personal process.


When you understand yourself more deeply, you can direct your thoughts and energy toward people, experiences and activities that bring you joy and naturally raise your vibration. When you are in a high vibrational state, you lift the collective energy of our planet and humanity.

Discussion Questions


  • In last month’s topic about vibration, we suggested an experiment of smiling and saying hello to everyone you pass by throughout the day. Did anyone conduct this experiment, and if so, can you please share how you felt afterward—in mind, body, and spirit?

  • What insights can you gain from the Emotional Clock© (created by our own Poppy and Geoff Spencer?)

  • How can you move from the lower emotions as outlined on the Emotional Clock© to higher emotions (and thus a higher vibrational state?) Can you share ways or mechanisms you use to cope with difficult emotions, such as sustained stress and hopelessness?

  • How can you do deeper self-exploration of yourself in order to better understand your triggers and to know yourself better?

  • What does ‘spiritual strength’ mean to you and how can we tap into it to give us strength in our emotional, mental and physical bodies?

 

A Deeper Dive: Emotions and Chi


Overview


As humans, and especially as spiritual, in-the-know, awake and aware human beings, we sometimes experience feelings we don’t like and would prefer not to deal with. Our first instinct may be to ignore or suppress these emotions, however, that usually is not the most nourishing choice for our energy and wellbeing.


Chi (pronounced “chee”) is life force energy or the energy that flows through all things in the universe. This universal energy has many names—ki, qi, prana, the Great Spirit, invisible life force, and many others. 


Regardless of what we call this energy, modern medicine doesn’t typically recognize “chi,” even though ancient healing methods and many alternative healing modalities honor this universal concept. Many of today’s healers recognize that DIS-ease doesn’t start inside the body. If your chi becomes stuck, it can turn into DIS-ease. There are many reasons why chi can become stuck, and it can relate to spiritual, physical, mental, or emotional blockages.


From an emotional standpoint, one’s chi can become stuck from negative thought patterns, limiting beliefs, suppressing emotions, etc. Healers focus on moving this stagnant energy in order to revive the life force flow in our bodies. Every individual can tap into this vital life force energy, which is available in abundance throughout the universe.


To avoid energy blockages, instead of suppressing emotions or moving into a ‘comfortable’ negative pattern, a more nourishing choice is to allow your feelings to flow and at the same time, ensure these emotions don’t overtake you.


One strategy to achieve this is to observe your feelings and recognize that the emotion isn’t you, but a simply feeling that is moving through you. This gentle, non-judgmental observation process allows you to let go of emotions that no longer serve you with ease and grace.


There are times when deep emotions and traumas arise in order for us to clear them. These may be your own personal traumas or collective sufferings. These come to the surface for us to acknowledge and allow, release and transmute. Focusing on our inner work allows for great growth and evolution, both personally and collectively.


Discussion Questions


  • What are your thoughts regarding patterns of negative feelings and suppressed emotions getting stuck and turning into sickness?

  • What is a ‘comfortable’ negative pattern of emotions? How can a difficult emotion be comfortable, and what can you do to address these?

  • How do you tap into chi (universal life force energy) to restore, renew, and maintain a healthy flow of energy throughout your spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional bodies?

  • Last month we touched on spiritual cleansing. What spiritual cleansing techniques do you use to help you focus on cleansing emotions?
