Beyond the 5 senses and the thoughts of the brain, there is a deeper knowing that is always present, always there, always ready to be revealed.
In fact, it is always getting through the “filter” of everyday living.
What is beyond the senses and the thoughts is the essence of gratitude, love, peace, joy and hope. Living in these moods and states of mind is the easiest way of allowing this essence at the core of you to emerge.
This essence is the closest thing to what you really, really, really believe about yourself and life. It’s you’re basic “knowing” that you may not even be aware that you have.
Have you ever had the experience that when you had to draw upon it, there was an inner source of strength making you feel “steady as a rock?”
Remember how you worried your way all the way there, and then when you stepped out and did it, you were steady as steady could be?
There are those times when we feel oppressed –life seems to be on top of us rather than feeling like we “are top of things”. It is a common experience in a life where we get too busy to take good care of ourselves. Sometimes, it’s ANGER, some times it’s just frustration and that “wit’s end” feeling.
AN EMOTIONAL PULSE
It is true that we notice more of what we begin to FEEL.
An “emotional pulse” is like sending positive emotional blood through your brain and body. You might have to start with your imagination.
Find the positive feeling that you can catch by the tail and feel just a little bit of it.
Among 5 feelings- gratitude, peace, love, joy or hope, which of these feelings RIGHT NOW can you get the closest to by feeling just a little bit of one of them?
Which one can you most easily imagine?
Which one can you catch by the tail?
Tap those moments and you tap into what you really know and believe.
At the core of you is a center of steadfast love, peace, joy, and hope, and gratitude.
Touch it and let it seep into your world.
