Have you ever said to yourself I need to make a change but, I don't know what I want? Then you are not listening to your one infallible guide; your emotions. We want or don't want things according to how we feel. The greater the feeling or passion the greater we want or don't want something. It is our driving force. It is our engagement with the universe.
Emotions tell us when we are successful or drive us to go on to even greater accomplishments or through fear stop us dead in our tracks. Success is hollow and fleeting if we don't feel that it is successful and no one can convince us otherwise. How we feel is our final judge.
Research by Dr Candice Pert PhD and detailed in her book called Molecules of Emotion and a recent audio CD Your Body is Your Subconscious Mind underline the importance of our emotions as signals from our subconscious. The involvement of our emotions is a definitive part of all great programs of change from Anthony Robbin's Awaken the Giant Within to the Dali Lama's The Art of Happiness.
Engagement is a requirement for change and our emotions determine the degree and urgency for that change. Little emotion leads to little or no change whereas intense emotion leads to ongoing movement towards our desire or away from what we don't want in our life until we feel we are successful.
Discover your path, vision or calling by listening to your emotions. Make a list of what you envy, wish for, never want to be or passionately hate for therein lies the seeds of change.
Tomorrow we will continue with a discussion on the definition of success.
