Are you swimming an emotional marathon?

Are you swimming an emotional marathon?

Do you feel exhausted after doing something emotionally challenging, like walking through fear or breaking a habit? The action might have been simple, like making a phone call. You may be thinking that it’s silly to be so tired. Be especially loving with yourself at this time. Rest and reward yourself. Swimming against the Emotional Undertow of old learned emotions uses more energy than swimming in a marathon.

I also posted it in my Facebook Update. Here are some of the answers I’ve gotten so far:

“Thank you so much. I feel like you read my mind, it is very difficult to say no to people who have been using me for years, just the fear of saying no has been very difficult and exhausting, but after the storm I feel much better and respect myself much more.”

“YES. This is so what I needed to read today. It’s hard to move on sometimes, past the bad habits.”

This brings up a couple of questions about emotional breakthrough, and that’s what I want to explore in this post.

  • What is the Emotional Undertow?
  • Why do we experience paralyzing fear or resistance to do certain things that we know rationally are good for us and which we don’t have any skill-impairment to do?(like saying no, making a phone call, selling something or talking about what we do, for example.)
  • Why are bad habits seem like impenetrable barriers?
  • What can I do to diminish the anxiety and fear and take action from a place of peace?

Here are some answers to these questions.

Emotional Undertow

I use the term Emotional Undertow to describe the cumulative emotional charge connected to learned beliefs or habits. An example will help.

Mary has been hiding backstage while others get the credit. She’s done this all her life. Now, at 35, she realizes that this has sabotaged her success, prosperity and self-esteem. Mary has created a new line of products that she is promoting and needs to make herself visible in order to sell them. While Mary has previously helped many people sell and she has all the necessary skills, every time she picks up the phone or sends an email to make herself and her brand visible, she goes through high levels of anxiety, days of procrastination, sweaty hands and mental confusion. What is going on?

Mary learned very early on in her childhood that she could not be visible. If she was visible…(fill in the blanks.) The learned belief may be that

  • she would not be loved,
  • she was bad or
  • something terrible would happen as punishment for her arrogance.

This belief was most often communicated emotionally, without direct words or warning, but with great intensity.

The child learned this emotionally, nor rationally. She felt this belief as a life or death warning. “If I am visible, if I shine, then, something terrible will happen. I will not be loved. I am a bad person and God will punish me.”

The emotions inherited with the learned belief were:

  • Terror of being alone and not being loved if she became visible or took credit for her gifts and work.
  • Extreme shame and feelings of being evil, of being an opportunist of being arrogant if she name her worth or expressed her gifts.
  • Exaggerated feelings of dread and life-threatening fear that something terrible will happen the minute she steps out of her Invisibility Cloak.

The depth, weight and pull of your Emotional Undertow

These learned emotions are so threatening and forbidding to a child, that they create an emotional barrier.

For 35 years, Mary has fed these learned emotions. Every time that Mary wanted to shine, to express herself in public, to take credit for what she created, these same emotions reared their ugly head.

But Mary, not having the awareness of what was behind her fear or lacking the emotional skills to deal with them, repressed them.

At 35, Mary has 35 emotional tons of this threatening, shaming emotions accumulated. That’s her Emotional Undertow.

Emotions are flowing energies that run through our Energy Body, stirring up memories, signaling nerve responses, evoking images, generating physical states and turning on mental pathways. They are very powerful. More powerful than thoughts, because they carry charge that can ignite certain thoughts associated to them, so that your rational thoughts don’s stand a chance.

The good news is that these energies are constantly changing. That’s why they are archetypically associated with water. They can change form, color, temperature, density and electrical charge. They can be transformed. That is why you need to feel them, follow them to their source and then release the parts that are toxic. Imagine that you are combing them. Take out guilt, shame, learned fear, interpretations, etc. What is left is the pure power of emotions to propel you. What is left is your passion.

What you can do

When we take action against these learned limits of behavior or learned beliefs, these Emotional Undertow stirs up and pulls us back from the shore of our goals. We then need to use all we got to release that pull and move forward. Here are several things that help:

  • Feel what you feel. Give yourself time, space and permission to experience your emotion fully. Do not judge yourself. Do not badger yourself. Do not confuse yourself with your emotions. Seat with it, hold it. Feel it. Love yourself with it, through it and beyond it.
  • Do not identify with the emotions. Part of the problem is that as a child, you identify yourself with these overpowering emotions that ran through you. Now you can detach. Before allowing this Emotional Undertow to flow through you and experience these powerful emotions, seat breathing deeply for a few minutes, and feel your Core Self. This is your Soul-self. It holds your inner strength and wisdom. See it as an ancient tree that stands still in the midst of activity. Stand in the infinite power of your Soul and detach from the emotions as you feel them. This means that you allow yourself to feel them, but you don’t drown in them because you can observe them without confusing yourself with these old, learned emotions.
  • Self-parent yourself. One of the reasons this makes no sense to the adult you is because it is NOT the adult you who is carrying the Emotional Undertow. It is one or more of your Inner Children. Talk to them. Hold them in your arms. Listen to them and help them to FEEL loved, protected and ALLOWED to engage in the new behavior. This is a process, not a one shot deal.
  • You need to go within, recognize, clarify and release the learned beliefs and emotions in your unconscious. If you can’t find the hidden beliefs or emotions, or if they create undue anxiety, you can support your clearance process by:
  • Therapy
  • Working with a coach, spiritual teacher, shaman or minister
  • Meditation and reflection
  • Help from your spiritual guides
  • Reflection in nature, where the Sacred World will show you guidance
  • Journal writing
  • Shamanic Psychic Hunting.
  • Take action. Your emotions are learned signals from the past. Every time you take action, they subside a bit more. Eventually, the present results will override the past domestication and the emotions will go.
  • Get help and support. Whether a therapist, coach, support group or online community, you need the support of positive people to nourish the emotions that will build your Emotional Streams of Affluence, the positive emotional build up that carries you to your desired destiny.
  • Use a daily visualization practice or rituals that helps you transform the Emotional Undertow into Emotional Streams of Affluence. Try Shifting the World, a practice I teach in this blog.

Shifting your World for instant manifestation

Shifting the World

Beyond the Law of Attraction spins the Law of Alignment

By Maria Mar(c)

Shifting the World, Guided Audio Meditation by Artist-shaman Maria Mar.

Shifting the World, Guided Audio Meditation by Artist-shaman Maria Mar.

When you have a deep desire for something, but feel an equally strong sense of frustration at not having it, you are at a Dimensional Fork. The shaman sees you between two dimensions that open, like two roads, in front of you. This post gives you clear instructions on how to use this magical place of the Dimensional Fork to instantly manifest what you desire. It teaches you the practice of Shifting your World. For direct guidance and in-depth knowledge, pre-order the audio and ebook Shifting the Worlds or the Female Secrets in the Law of Attraction Audio Meditation Series.

Pre-order now. No pre-payment or obligation to purchase.

As you stand in the Dimensional Fork, you see that in one dimension, the one that feels more real and solid right now, you lack what you desire (otherwise you would be enjoying it, not craving for it). Let’s call this the Dimension of Lack. In the other dimension, however, it already exists. You can’t see or experience this dimension yet because there is something stopping you. Perhaps fear, disbelief or old beliefs do not allow you to experience the Dimension of your Desire. But it’s there. You know this is true because of your feelings. Your Emotional Intelligence knows that this dimension is your true belonging. It pushes you, through your desire and longing, to seek it. That is why you find yourself in the Dimensional Fork.

The feelings in the Dimensional Fork are similar to catching a glimpse of your desire just ahead, but you seem to make the wrong turn and end up in a place of lack. Or you feel as if what you seek is right at the reach of your fingertips, but it slips away. These feelings indicate that you already attracted what you wanted. It is trying to get to you, but an energy misalignment prevents it from reaching you. If this is true for you now, you must step beyond the Law of Attraction into the Law of Alignment. You must align yourself with your dream.

The ebook that accompanies the Guided Audio Meditation includes a real life story of how I used this practice to instantly manifest a simple desire. If you practice Shifting the World in simple things, you will master the technique for more ambitious desires.

PRACTICE

FIRST PHASE: EMOTIONAL CHARGE

You need to move into the Dimensional Fork. As you can tell from the story, this happens when your desire stands up to your frustration, so that you are emotionally charged by BOTH. If you are not right now at a powerful charged situation, then evoke these emotions.

STEP 1: Evoke the emotions of the Dimension of Lack.

Situate the Dimension of Lack that you have experienced in the past, up ‘till now, to your left. It is your left road. (The left hand records the past.) Extend your left hand, closed in a fist, palm down. See and visualize the old reality as a road opening to your left.

A. EVOKE the experience of lack. See how you are living now without the object of your desire. Evoke the feelings of lack, including frustration, hunger, sadness, abandonment and any other feelings. See the Dimension of Lack playing in front of you, to your left. How does it feel and look?

B. ACCEPT your feelings of lack.

C. DETACH from these feelings.

D. SPIN THE ORBIT by concentrating on the energy frequency created by this old reality. Turn your fist 90 degrees and open it slightly, so that you form an O with your fingers, the tip of the thumb slight touching the tip of the index finger. Concentrate your attention on the energy spinning in this circle in your hand, until you can hear and feel it clearly.

E. RESONATE out loud by giving this frequency sound. Try to generate a sound that is as close to the spinning energy in your hand as it feels right. Listen to this resonance.

STEP 2:  Evoke the emotions of the Dimension of Desire.

Turn your attention to your right. Curl your right hand into a fist, palm down, and extend the arm. See the future you want as a road opening right now in front of you, to your right. This is the Dimension of Desire. (The right hand records the future.)

A. EVOKE the experience of what you want. Imagine it vividly. Touch it. See it. Smell it. Feel the feelings of fullness, satisfaction, joy, lovability, belonging, buoyancy, peace, harmony, wellbeing and other feelings that arise from this experience.

B. ACCEPT these as you watch the movie run in front of you, vividly depicting the reality in your Dimension of Desire.

C. DETACH from any feeling of longing or any other feeling that comes from NOT having this.

D. SPIN THE ORBIT by concentrating on the energy frequency created by this desired reality. Turn your fist 90 degrees and open it slightly, so that you form an O with your fingers, the tip of the thumb slight touching the tip of the index finger. Concentrate your attention on the energy spinning in this circle in your hand, until you can hear and feel it clearly.

E. RESONATE out loud by giving this frequency sound. Try to generate a sound that is as close to the spinning energy in your hand as it feels right. Listen to this resonance.

PHASE TWO: STAND AT THE PLACE OF PARADOX

The Dimensional Fork is a Place of Paradox because two seemingly opposite universes or forces are happening simultaneously.

Step 1: Consider the left road

See yourself standing at the Dimensional Fork. Spend a few minutes witnessing (in detachment) the Dimension of Lack. Concentrate on the frequency spinning in your left hand. Witness what this dimension is about, what it consists of.  Witness how you feel inside it. This witnessing may yield instant revelations as to what is creating the misalignment that keeps you trapped in the Dimension of Lack. You may feel or see some emotional attachment or habits that keep you there. Don’t expect anything, however. Trust the experience as it is.

Step 2: Consider the right road

Concentrate now on your extended right arm and the frequency spinning in your right hand. Spend a few minutes witnessing the Dimension of Desire.  Concentrate on the frequency spinning on your right hand. Immerse yourself in the feelings of this dimension as it is happening right now.

Do NOT allow yourself to fall into a hunger for this reality. If it is happening, there is no need to hunger for it. 

See what the Dimension of Desire is about, what it consists of. What makes it essential or desirable for you? What feelings and emotions does it create in you?

This witnessing may yield instant revelations as to what is creating the misalignment that does not allow the Dimension of Desire to get to you. You may see that there are certain fears or doubts holding you back. Sometimes we fear what we want as badly as we fear what we don’t want.  Simply witness whatever comes up. Don’t expect anything, however. Trust the experience as it is.

PHASE THREE: FREE CHOICE

Now that you stand in the Dimensional Fork, in a Place of Paradox, you can grasp all the dimensions of your present reality. Now you are the master, not the slave. You can choose freely.

Step 1: Leave the left road

Inhale deeply. As you open your left fist, exhale and release the Dimension of Lack. Withdraw all your emotions and attentions from it. Release all doubt and hunger. If you saw any attachment or habits, release them in exhalation. Turn your entire body to your right. Don’t look back.

Step 2: Take the right road

Inhale deeply. As you open the right fist, embrace the Dimension of Desire. Give all your attention and emotions to this reality. Release all doubt and fear and enjoy living in that dimension.

Concentrate on the frequency spinning on your right hand until you can feel it spinning up your arm and all around you. Knit the fingers of both hand together across your solar plexus, and enjoy the vibration of the Dimension of Desire. Immerse yourself in that vibrational frequency. Enjoy the feelings, vision and frequency in this dimension.

Feed this frequency with an Inner Smile. Allow this smile to emerge from deep within your heart up to your lips and shine through your eyes.

Feed this new frequency with feelings of gratitude, acceptance, trust and receptivity. Open your heart to the new allies and opportunities that will be magnetize by the resonance of this new frequency.

For a more detailed description, including how to sustain the new frequencey and use this as a ceremony, with the guided audio meditation, pre-order the upcoming product. No pre-payment or obligation.

Female Secrets in the Law of Attraction-Breastfeed your Dream

Female Secrets in the Law of Attraction

No. 3: Breastfeed your Dream

By Maria Mar©

Author of the Dream Kit

Do you have a desire that you’ve been trying to manifest using the Law of Attraction? You may be missing the most important information for you as a woman. You have the power to quicken the manifestation of your dream using little known Female Secrets in the Law of Attraction. In this article you will learn how to breastfeed your dream! I’m sure you can relate to that, while your testosterone-driven brothers will go “huh?”
Learn more about the Dream Kit.
Birthing your dream is wonderful. If you’ve done that already, your dream is now a real entity, not just an imagined idea. It occupies time and space in your life. But it’s still a dream. It is not yet a full-fledge reality that can sustain your life. When that happens, you will be living the dream. It will no longer be a dream, but a reality. What can you do to grow that baby dream so that it is fulfilled?

Breastfeed the baby, of course. There is a reason why women are “emotional.” (And it’s not our propensity for drama) Emotions are the life-giving liquid that nourishes a dream. Just like a baby needs milk to grow, your dream needs you to feed it with positive emotions. Emotions are the fuel of the Law of Attraction.

The Law of Attraction is not called a law for nothing! Just like the Law of Gravity, it operates within specific parameters. Throw something and it falls. That’s the Law of Gravity. It works through the magnetic pull of earth. The Law of Attraction also works with magnetism. How do you magnetize?
Read more about this book.
Through emotions. Emotions are energies-in-motion that move within your Energy Body. They are the ocean waves within your being, generated and regenerated at the Sexual or Spleen Chakra. Water has been traditionally associated with the emotional realm because our emotions are fluid waves of energy that give color, intensity, texture and force to our thoughts, actions and intentions. Like ocean waves, they pull the tides of universal consciousness towards your desires.

When you pour your passion into your desire, you magnetize it. If you hold back, doubt, give credence to those who detract it or concentrate on the obstacles, you de-magnetize it. It’s as simple as that.

What do you want? Let’s say that you want to finish your book and sell millions of copies to share your wisdom and generate affluence in return.
Join our membership!
Let’s magnetize that desire. You can apply this process to your own desire as you read.

Name five reasons about your dream that charge you emotionally. You will recognize them because you immediately feel enthusiastic, joyful and motivated when you think of them. Here are mine. Do yours along.

1. I feel compelled to share this.
The spiritual knowledge that I’ve been giving about the power of Female Wisdom to create our reality and to change this world is a magnificent gift. It changed me from a tormented artist to a woman who sees beauty and magic in everything. I’m so grateful! It changes the life of everyone who opens her heart to receive it. I feel compelled to share this with as many people as can receive it while I am on this earth.

(Notice the tone and mood. My words are charged with my emotions. Notice the strong verbs. They are signals that I am passionate about this. That’s what we are looking for. It’s not a matter of manipulating language, of choosing the right words. That’s a common mistake. It is about recognizing and daring to share what really ignites your passion.)

2. I love talking, writing and sharing this!
My life is bliss when I am able to communicate this in a way that touches others’ hearts. I love talking about it. I love seeing that magical moment when a woman’s Ancient Heart awakens and recognizes her hidden knowledge. It’s like seeing a door that had remained invisible. Now the person can see it. Now she can walk through it. And I am the bearer of that Alchemical Key!

3. I made a commitment to myself when I was a young woman, to be loyal to my art and my gifts.
Ever since I did that pledge, I have made money from what I love to do, without working on jobs I don’t care about or working for just to make a buck. The more people read my books, the more affluence I can generate from my self-loyalty. That’s the example I want to leave for future generations and that’s my best way to inspire other women. I walk my talk!

4. I want to buy my beautiful home.
I want to purchase my brownstone in New York, so that I can have a performance loft, my studio office and my art studio, all in a four-story building with my living loft and store. I want my beautiful roof-top garden, too. I want to generate abundant affluence to purchase and remodel that building.

5. Meeting new people who are manifesting their dreams is exciting and helps me raise my energy vibration.
I love meeting people who are positive and who take action to manifest their dreams. It charges me with vibrant, positive energy. They understand me, and together we raise amazing power for everyone’s dream. I feel that we are changing not only ourselves, but the entire planetary vibrational field.

There you go. Feel the power of your own five reasons. They are your Emotional Dream Nourishments. They are the emotional milk that nourishes my dream. If you named yours already, you can feel your energy vibration rising and you are charged with faith, motivation and the fire of passion.

Place these five Emotional Dream Nourishments in a vision board, Dream Basket or poster. Look at them every morning to breastfeed your dream. Your dream will grow big and strong and it will soon be your reality.

Awaken your Venus Gifts!

Awaken your Venus Gifts!

By Maria Mar


Whether you already have your soul mate or are looking for him (or her), you want to invoke the beauty, grace, magnetism and sweet loving energy of Venus. Known by many names, among them Ochún, Kuan Yin, Lakshmi or Aphrodite, the Divine Female Essence of Love is the fountain of joy and delight.


Love is the greatest power in the universe. It is, in effect, the source of the beauty and perfection of the universe. What is love? For me, it is the force that animates creation. For love the perfection of the rose unfolds its spiral. For love the  ocean roars, dances and heals, birthing abundant life. In love, the seagull soars through the sky and the sparrows sing all day. The Full Moon shines to illuminate our love or our longing for love. The New Moon goes within to guide us to the source of love. Because of love and for love you and I exist. Without love, life would be meaningless. When there is love, all can be achieved, transcended, created or withstood.


Our society, however, has relegated love to a tiny romantic corner to be visited in Valentine and when you want to watch the Hallmark Channel. That is like trying to reduce the mighty ocean into a bucket. Our society is obsessed with power. But by power it means control. Please, beautiful sister, do not fall under the patriarchal spell that has for centuries defined love as control, creating endless wars, making slaves and taking women hostage of its fear.


The myth of power as control is costing us our happiness, our love lives and our families’ happiness. Control is nothing but an addictive illusion. As a human being, you have an awesome power. You can create. You can co-create your circumstances, dancing with those who share it and the forces that can shape it. You can even summon all the forces and elements in the Universe to shapeshift your circumstances. That is a vast power! But you cannot control. When you try to control, you become a slave to that which you want to control, and you forsake love.


Let us then, begin the New Year of 2009 by celebrating love. Let us receive the upcoming Valentine by visiting the place within us that allows us to be the priestesses of love. For women, let’s face it sisters, are the embodiment and guardians of love among humanity. There are some extraordinary men who place love at the foundation of their lives and offer it the gifts of time and energy to be honored and nourished. But most of the time, it is us women keeping the torch alive, reminding our men of love, reminding them of birthday cards and anniversary gifts. Prompting or inspiring them to be romantic.


Let us celebrate the power of love that we bring everyday into our personal, family and social arena by naming our Venus Gifts today.

Here are five archetypal Venus Gifts. I name them as I experience them. Take each one and name it as YOU experience them. If you want to do a Venus Dream Basket, read the instructions for the ceremony by clicking the link.


LOVE

My gift of love comes wrapped in beautiful oceanic colors. That is me. When you open this gift, a beautiful music comes out. That’s my sweet voice when I speak to you with love. Then this gift touches you, and your skin, your bones, your heart and your soul become soft and vibrate. My warmth flows through you and around you, making home for you.


HARMONY

I am Harmony. Every day I summon Harmony. I become one with the Harmony of hawk, flying seamlessly in an open sky. I become one with the Harmony of sky, birthing me in each breath. I become one with the water. The water I drink. The water that showers me. The water that helps me cook. I become one with Harmony. Harmony is my prayer, for in Harmony love expresses itself. In Harmony, everything becomes music. In Harmony each being sings its unique note and joins others to create the symphony of life.


BEAUTY

Beauty is the expression of the Essence of a being. Nature expresses its Essence with transparency. Rose does not hide its aroma or its velvety delicacy. It does not even hide its thorns. Tree does not try to be straight and perfect. It simply is. It seeks the light and twists and turns to enjoy it. It is naked in winter and dress for a party in Spring and gives from itself effortlessly. This is beauty. This is the beauty I hold dear, the unaffected, loving beauty that shines from within. This is my beauty.


GRACE

As all springs from love, so does Grace. It is the expression of love in every act. It is Harmony moving us from within. I breathe deeply, from my Essence. I surrender to the Goddess of Love. I summon Harmony and listen to the song of the universe. And then I dance. All the clumsy tiredness, the tiny irritations disappear. I am love. I am beauty. I am Harmony. I am Grace.


JOY

“You are a gift, Maria,” a friend recently told me. How sweet, those words. Yes, that is what I am, what I want to be. What I want to give. We often work so hard to be loved and accepted, when all the time what others want and enjoy is our Essence and our Presence. I am present here now. I am celebrating this moment. As Isha (Author of Why Walk when You can Fly?) says, “Love creates me in my perfection.” I celebrate you today. I celebrate life. Laughter heals, beautiful sister. Let us celebrate and laugh.

Take each of the Venus Gifts and name it as YOU experience it. Allow yourself to express your beauty and uniqueness, your poetry and grace. Let your soul speak and your love soar!


God bless you beautiful sister,


Light and love,

Maria Mar

Emotions: The Fuel for the Law of Attraction

Hi, beautiful sisters,

Emotions are the fuel for the Law of Attraction.

What does this mean? Emotions are energy-in-motion in your energy system, your Human Energy Field. This is also known as the Energy Bodies, the Subtle Body or the Aura.

While this may sound esoteric, it is the essence of the Law of Attraction. We have from 7-10 Energy Bodies. These Energy Bodies are the templates that build your physical body. See them as a bridge that goes from your physical self into the Universal Field of Infinite Possibilities. The first Energy Body is a blue grid of energy lines called the Etheric Body. Here you are working with acupuncture and the meridians.

The second Energy Body is the Emotional Body. Here you are working with emotions and the creative energy, with passion. The Emotional Energy Body is fluid, like a rainbow cloud. The great thing about fluid Energy Bodies is that they are very malleable. They can shift easily. They can be dissolved, cleansed, re-textured, re-shaped, released or nurtured. You nurture emotions through giving them attention and holding the thought patterns associated with them. The difficult thing about emotions and the fluid Energy Bodies is that they are cumulative. In other words, like water, every drop adds to the other. If you accumulate toxic emotions, they can become very dense unless you dissolve them. Of course, this density can be a blessing. Feed gratitude and every drop forms an ocean of gratitude in your being!

The third Energy Body is the Mental Body, again, this is a yellowish grid-like template made by your thoughts.Take a minute to let this sink, sister. Your thoughts form a template that then shapes your body and your life. That’s deep, don’t you think? Thoughts are fed by emotions. They are also fed by repetition and attention. Feed them and those lines solidify until they become reality. That is why so many spiritual teachers throughout time have said ” You are your thoughts.”

Most Law of Attraction experts focus on this level. As you can see, however, the emotions are essential in forming and feeding your thoughts. But because emotions are linked to the Female Way of Knowing, or your Female Shield, they have been neglected until recently.

When a fluid emotion (energy-in-motion) penetrates the grid-like Mental Body or Ketheric Template, it becomes less “cloudy” and more “linear”. It’s becoming solid, sisters! Feed that emotionally charged thought with your attention, and it becomes completely solid! It manifests in your body as your body shape, weight, presence, personality, voice and words.

If your Emotional Body gets dense and charged with frustration, anger and resentment, and is not cleansed, the anger and other toxic emotions solidify into thought patterns that are charged with that emotional toxic fuel. You can find traces of this toxic emotions in a lock jaw, cold eyes, neck inflammation, lower back conditions and other physical conditions.

What do you think you are attracting with those emotionally charged thoughts? Remember that like attracts like. You will attract angry, frustrated, resentful people. But when we say that like attracts like, we need to consider that sometimes “like” actually means “opposite.” If this is confusing, remember the saying “opposites meet.”

You may be attracting people who seem to be opposite to you. For example, you may be a really caring person who hates injustice and being taken advantage of. Yet, you may be attracting opportunists who take advantage of you, or depressed people who you care for, but neither receive nor appreciate your care. Why are you attracting these people? Wouldn’t you attract other caretaking people? Not if you need to take care of others! In this case, you need those opportunistic, unappreciative people in order to continue the pattern of emotionally-charged habitual thoughts that you hold in your Energy Body.

Your Emotional Body is very powerful. Like the moon, it is magnetic. It will attract that which resonates with and supports your Primary Emotions (read habitual or stronger). It is also highly permeable, interactive and shifting. This means that it either attracts or repels, sucks-in or rejects other vibrations, and that it vibrates strongly and is mobile, creating motivation and passion and literally moving you.

If you are using your attention to feed fear, frustration, resentment and toxic anger, your heart will close to defend itself. If you place your attention in healing emotions, such as forgiveness, release, letting go, compassion, self-love, self-acceptance, joy, love, creativity and a desire to grow and be better, then your heart will open to allow the flow of the Law of Attraction.

Your emotions will fuel the thoughts that nurture your best potential and help you manifest your dream. These emotionally-charged thoughts, when sustain for a consistent period of time, will become patterns in your energy body. They will heal your old imprints. You will physically, emotionally and mentally change to attract the allies and resources to make your dream come true.

You are NOT the victim of your environment. You are a creatress. If your environment, your past or your fears are sabotaging your desire, you can shift that pattern. The emotions are the key to that shift.

Emotions can be released, they can be cleansed, they can be re-textured, they can be fed or starved. Here are a few things you can do. Let me know how they work for you.

  • Feed the emotions that attract what you desire: gratitude, joy, harmony, serenity and creative passion.
  • Starve the emotions that repel what you desire: hatred, frustration, impatience, resentment, and toxic anger.
  • Shift the anger you feel by cleansing it of blame, resentment and hatred toxins. Then you can use the pure energy of anger to move you into positive action.
  • Re-texture emotions such as envy, jealousy and feelings of insufficiency or abandonment. Re-shape them as you do with clay. See that what you envy is what you desire. This will transform the object of your envy into an inspirational model. See that your feelings of insufficiency are just your Little Orphan Self. Become a mother to that Inner Child. Let her know how good she is. By mothering yourself, you feed your self-love and self-esteem.

Now you begin to see how powerful the role of emotions is in the activation of the Law of Attraction. By feeding, starving, cleansing, re-texturing and releasing your emotions you can create the powerful alchemy that attracts what you desire into your life.

If you want to know more about this, then tune in to our next show:

Open the flow of the Law of Attraction:

Alchemical Key No. 1: Be Available

October 20, 2008

Third Monday of the month

at 11:00PM to 12:00PM EST

(New York Time)

8PM Pacific time

The first Alchemical Key to open the flow of the Law of Attraction is availability. You cannot even begin to attract what you desire if you are not available for it. You become available for what you want by making time and space for it.

Maria Mar, The Dream Alchemist, will guide you in a meditation to help you open a space in your cells and in your life to receive what you want. The show will include live music, visuals that you can look at, information and reflection, and a guided meditation and visualization exercise. Maria is available to talk or answer your questions.

So, what do you think now of the power of emotions as fuel for the Law of Attraction? And more importantly… what do you feel?

Light and Love
