So, something has happened in your experience that makes you feel terrible.
Nothing sounds good, nothing feels good, it seems as it you are suffocating,
and each thought is equally painful.
The best word to describe your nearly constant state of emotion is one of depression.
If you could throw yourself into taking some action, you might teel better;
if you could put what is bothering you out of your mind altogether and focus
upon your work, you could feel better. There are many thoughts that you could
entertain that could free you from your depression.
However, vibrationally, you do not have access to most of them right now.
But if your intention is to find a thought, any thought, that feels better, and you are
consciously aware of how that thought feels, you can begin to move up
the Emotional Guidance Scale immediately.
It is really a process of thinking a thought, any thought, and then consciously evaluating
whether the new thought gives you any feeling of relief from where you were
before that thought.
So, you think and feel and think and feel, with one intention only: to feel even the slightest bit of relief.
Let us say that someone has said something that made you angry,
or someone did not keep her word. And as you focus upon this angry topic,
you notice that you do feel some relief from your depression.
In other words, in the midst of this angry thought, you are no longer having any trouble breathing.
The feeling of claustrophobia has lifted, and you do feel slightly better.
Now, here is the crucial step in effectively utilizing your Emotional Guidance System:
Stop, and consciously acknowledge that your chosen thought of anger does feel better
than the suffocating depression that it replaced.
And in the conscious recognition of your improved vibration, your feeling of powerlessness
softens and you are now on you way up your Emotional Guidance Scale,
back into full connection with who you really are.
