The Emotional Scale: A Different “Twist.”

Line Break

Author: Lee (4 Articles)

I'm a classically trained pianist, organist, flutist and singer who is relatively new to the Law of Attraction. A very good friend and his wife introduced me to LOA, but I've seen it in action many, many times during my lifetime. I enjoy going to dinner, movies, concerts and shows, walks on or by the beach, good conversation and humor. Most days, you'll find me either practicing something, or loving on my cat.

After reading Chris’ post entitled Understanding and Using the Emotional Scale,” I experienced some insights that I would like to share with the GP community. As you may know, the way we feel has everything to do with what is being lined up for us using the Law of Attraction. The Emotional and Vibrational Scale helps us know where we are in relation to the Vortex (where we are connected to prosperity, Source Energy, and well-being). As I understood it, we all have a range of emotions that we have access to, and no single emotion can be very far away from one that is similar, either just above, or just below that feeling or emotion.  If what we are feeling is not what we want for ourselves, we can choose to move up the Emotional Scale by choosing the feeling that is just above where we are presently feeling. When we obtain that lift in thought and emotion, and then find ourselves thinking and feeling the higher thoughts and feelings than where we started out, we move closer to feeling good and allowing everything we want to flow to us.  Isn’t it good to know that we are never stuck in any one place, feeling any one feeling, for an indefinite amount of time?  WE can choose for ourselves what we want to think and feel, and the Universe will respond to what we are thinking and feeling, bringing us closer and closer to our own Vortex, where all that we have asked for has been waiting to manifest into our lives.

At the end of the post, Chris put a picture of the emotional scale that he made for himself and his wife, which hangs on the wall in their home.  It was great to get a visual representation of the emotional scale, and see how it works in a two dimensional example.  As I studied the scale more and more, a mental picture began forming in my mind that was different from the one I was looking at on the site.  Not BETTER….not IMPROVED….just different.  As I see it, the Vibrational and Emotional Scale can be more fluid.  I began to see two spirals of thoughts and feelings coming from the very center of the head, and moving in opposite directions from each other; one spiral going upward, the other going downward.  Imprinted on the spirals are the words of the Emotional/Vibrational Scale (Contentment, Hopefulness, Pleasure, Joy, etc.).  As you move upwards on the spiral, the spiral gradually becomes larger, because, as we know, the better we feel, the more good things compound and become greater, and the more joy we experience.  We get more and more of all the good things that we desire, and our vibration lifts higher and faster, until we reach union with our inner being, and connect fully to Source Energy.  The same can be said of the downward spiral.  As we give attention to those things that cause us to travel along the downward spiral, our problems, our frustrations, our guilt, bad feelings and depressive moods compound on to one another, and we find ourselves getting further and further away from our true nature, and thus, further and further away from our connection to Source Energy.  The GOOD news, of course, is that we don’t have to stay in that downward spiral.  We can choose to change direction and start traveling upwards.  If we are in frustration, we can just slide up the spiral to pessimism.  From there, we slide up to boredom, and so forth.  If we are in Hopefulness, we slide up the upward spiral to Optimism, and then up to Positive Expectations…..you get the idea.

One thing about the double spiral is that it allows for a state of equilibrium…contentment.  When you are content, you are neither reaching for something, nor are you feeling that something is missing from your life experience. You are, as one of my teachers says “unconsciously incompetent,” meaning you don’t know that you are missing anything.  It is because of this equilibrium that I chose to put contentment directly in the center, between the two spirals.

After I was “content” with the way the spirals worked, I decided to try the idea out. I found it to be a great help throughout the day! At any point, all I needed to do was notice how I was feeling, and picture in my mind’s eye the two spirals coming out the top of my head and out the bottom, and then visualize where I was on either spiral.  From there, I imagined sliding up the spiral to the next highest thought and feeling, until I was sure that I had expanded into the new person who embodied that higher feeling.  From there, I slid up the spiral again, and again, and again until I reached the highest thought and feeling I could for that moment of the day.  I found it to be very efficient, and sooooo easy to do!!

I hope that this helps some of you in getting more in touch with the Emotional/Vibrational Scale. I’ve asked Chris to include a visual aid, so that everyone can look at the spirals to get a better idea of what I’m talking about. If this made you think about all of this in a new way, please let us all know by commenting on this post. Just click on the little “bubble” near the top right by the title. Enjoy!! Lee-GP

      Anndelise,
      Thanks for the thoughts. I don’t think you need to know about the emotional scale to use your emotional guidance system. How you feel tells all you need to know. If you reach for positive-feeling thoughts, you will move up the scale automatically. The scale just gives a context to the labels associated with feeling your emotions. I like your more simplified approach, and as long as it works for you, keep doing it! Be Well, CHRIS

      “When you are content, you are neither reaching for something, nor are you feeling that something is missing from your life experience.”

      I like this quote. I haven’t read the books yet. I wouldn’t have except for accidentally coming across a page from this site about the emotional scale thing. While I don’t necessarily agree with the scale itself, I do like the idea of moving from ….

      a focus of what’s missing or what negative things are there …

      to focusing on what positive things are there and reaching to make more positive connections.

      I like things simple like that, rather than having to carry around a chart to peruse.

      Thanks for the idea. 🙂
