“As we tune into our own thoughts and emotions,
we can shift into the direction of our true intentions.
It is at this point that we enter the space of creation.”
—Chantelle Renee

Learning to create with your emotions is a potent way to regain power over your life. Becoming aware of and attuned to your emotional state will serve you well as you move forward on your quest to become master of your destiny. It is said that the heart is the seat of emotions. The principal human emotions which abide in the human heart are Love and Fear.

All other emotions stem from either love or fear, and it is from these primary emotions that the entire spectrum of emotions emanates. Our emotions each have a unique frequency and when any one emotion is amplified—when we feel something deeply—that emotion vibrates outward, creating a reaction in the quantum field. Much like a stone thrown into a pond, the emotion ripples outward, generating a vibrational field which influences everything in its path.

The heart has been documented as being the strongest generator of both electrical and magnetic fields in the human body. Whereas we have been taught that the brain is the generator of power in the body, science now knows that while the brain does have both electrical and magnetic fields, the frequencies they emit are relatively weak compared to the heart’s. Fear has a low, slow, contracting frequency, whereas love has a high, rapid, expanding frequency.

Thus, fear is a restrictive emotion and love is an expansive emotion. When we are in a state of fear, we are out of balance, limited, constrained, and separate. When we are in a state of love, on the other hand, when we are focused on finding balance, we are essentially using the vibration of love to feel our way back to Oneness with the Divine.

As we expand into love, we step into the universal flow with the least resistance to our greatest potential; we step into our power as creators. As we practice consciously invoking and amplifying higher vibrational emotions, as we guide them in the direction of our intentions, we send powerful signals of gratitude rippling out into the universe.

In these modern times of expanding consciousness, those seekers who live with awareness can move at an accelerated rate through these higher frequency energies and thereby can develop their energetic and spiritual strength. When you use the vibration of love to connect with the Divine Source, just as the water rippling out from a stone dropped into a pond eventually returns to the source
of impact, so, too, your ripples of gratitude will return to you what you send out. It’s the law.

Epigenetics and Your Emotional World

The science that studies how the development, function, and evolution of biological systems are influenced by forces operating outside the DNA sequence—including intracellular, environmental, and energetic influences—is called epigenetics. The revolutionary research and insight of Dr. Bruce H. Lipton, twenty-first century stem cell biologist and a pioneer in the study of epigenetics, has revealed that we are not simply victims of our genes. Dr. Lipton, best known for promoting the idea that genes and DNA can be manipulated by a person’s beliefs, is leading humanity onto a new path of empowerment. We can, he says, reclaim dominion over our bodies, which in turn will allow us to recover our natural healing abilities and perhaps even turn our new millennium medical paradigm on its head.

According to the science of epigenetics, it’s your perception of your environment that controls your genes. Your thoughts and emotions, in other words, have a direct effect on your cellular structure!

For example, scientific research has linked the human capacity for emotion to our DNA. It is now believed that our base emotions
directly affect our DNA and, in turn, influences the physical world we create and experience. Without elaborating on the complicated
science behind DNA Codes, essentially what this means is that, for example, a human being living in fear is vibrating at a low and slow
vibratory frequency and that person exists in a state of stagnation and may be prone to illness. A human being living in the pattern of
love, on the other hand, is vibrating at a higher frequency and that increased resonance offers the greatest potential for well-being and

Thus, when we are living in love, we are resonating with higher frequencies, and this is how we raise our consciousness. Those who
resonate with the lower emotional states, on the other hand, the so-called “survival emotions”—fear, hate, greed, and envy—remain in
stasis, shut down energetically and spiritually.

Now, the idea that our feelings, our emotions, and how we perceive our environments affects us on a cellular level may be a leap for many people. If none of it seems possible to you, sit with that resistance. Ask yourself, “Why do I feel that this could not be possible?” If we can allow ourselves to think without engaging with the preconceived notions placed on us by our families, our cultures, our religions, our societies, our teachers, etc.; if we can transcend these limits and boundaries and instead adopt a “quantum perspective;”
perhaps we can embrace the idea that our minds truly can control matter.

If this is true, you might ask, does it mean that we have to accept the ailment and disease in our bodies? What if we were born with a limitation such a missing limb or a mental impairment? Does this mind-over-matter theory also mean that we are capable of reversing any disorder of the body or any malformation?

The answer, in a word, is “Yes!” This may be a little unbelievable, and perhaps not even conceivable for most people. Biologically speaking, however, regeneration is the process of renewal, restoration, and growth that makes genomes, cells, organisms, and ecosystems resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage. Every species is capable of regeneration, from microorganisms to mammals. A starfish can grow back a limb, for example, a lizard can grow back its tail, spiders can regenerate their legs, deer can regrow their antlers—just to name a few.

There is a lot of untapped intelligence within our DNA and cellular structure, so it seems wise for us to remain open to the possibility that we, as human beings, might be able to align ourselves to a regenerative state of being as well. However, before we can do this, we must leave our limited beliefs in the past and step into whole new way of thinking.

What if this potentiality exists? What if we could all change our mindsets and believe that, personally and collectively, we might be able to bring forth a new way of experiencing being a human being? Reprogramming our subconscious minds is different than reprogramming our conscious minds. Our conscious minds are creative and are freely connected to Source.

They can grasp things more quickly. The subconscious mind, on the other hand, does not work this way. It can, however, be reprogrammed through practice, repetition, and/or hypnosis to form new habits. The subconscious mind is like a computer—it can be programmed. So, to truly make shifts in our fundamental human beliefs, it will take real effort, pure intent, and dedication until we can fully accept that we human beings are powerful in ways we cannot even imagine—all we need to do is program that power into our subconscious minds—and we
may become super-human!

Here is a quote I really like from Dr. Bruce Lipton:
Because we are not powerless biochemical machines, popping a pill every time we are mentally or physically out of tune is not the answer. Drugs and surgery are powerful tools when they are not overused, but the notion of simple drug fixes is fundamentally flawed. Every time a drug is introduced into the body to correct function A, it inevitably throws off function B, C, or D. It is not gene-directed hormones and neurotransmitters that control our bodies and our minds; our beliefs control our bodies, our minds, and thus our lives … Oh ye of little belief!
—Bruce H. Lipton

The Tyranny of Emotion

Dr. Lipton also points out that “We are not victims of our genes, but masters of our fates, able to create lives overflowing with peace,
happiness, and love.” This means that not only are we responsible for all the moments of our lives in which we are feeling uplifted and
experiencing positive emotions, we are also responsible for all of those moments in which lower-vibrational emotions such as sadness
and fear affect our day-to-day realities.

Sadness, fear, and other negative emotions have great power to paralyze us and keep us from living our lives fully. Fear especially
can keep us in a restrictive energetic state. It is often said that FEAR is simply false evidence appearing real. We need to gain control over our fear and allow it to serve us instead of rule us. Fear is an illusion that our mind creates to keep us from expanding. If we can master our minds, we can master our lives.
For example, we must live life being practical and cautious—we can’t, for example, jump off the top of a building and expect that
we won’t be injured or killed. So, we listen to our inner guidance and instincts—they are our inner navigational system and we sense
those instinctual feelings as fear.

But whereas this instinctual fear serves us and is a natural process, unnatural fear does not serve
us. We must find clarity by distinguishing natural fear—the fear stimulated when we are in real danger—from false fear (unnatural
fear), the fear that holds us back from resonating fully with our true selves and preventing us from finding our true purpose.
We must face false fear head on, and when we do, we will find ourselves living our lives more fully, doing things we never thought
we could do. Indeed, life is meant to be felt and experienced—in all its facets—and this means that we must be present with both our
good and our bad feelings.

Some psychologists debate whether or not all of the emotions we human beings experience are true emotions, per se, arguing that there are only six (some say eight) true emotions—happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise, and disgust. In our interpretation, there are numerous emotions and states of consciousness, and we include many of them on our Emotional Scale.
The figure below and the emotional scale

“I once swam in shallow waters only to get caught
up in the rocks and mud. Now, I dive deeper and feel freer.”
—Chantelle Renee

As you can see, there are good-feeling emotions and bad-feeling emotions. When it comes to learning how to manage our emotions,
making them work for us instead of against us, it is important to remember that a good-feeling emotion is not better than a bad-feeling emotion per se, for all emotions allow us to feel. When we feel, we create. To bring forth our feelings is to bring forth transformation and healing.

The rendering above showing free-flowing and contracting emotional attributes can help you feel your way back into the present
moment. How are your emotions making you feel, here and now? Are you “stuck” in a feeling you want to change? When you become
consciously aware of your thoughts and emotions you can shift them into the direction of your intentions. It is at this point that you
empower your creativity.

The Power of Feeling

If we can truly feel our feelings without judging ourselves, we can liberate ourselves from the tyranny of being driven to action by our feelings. Instead of our emotions leading the way, we can allow them to guide us and use them in a purposeful, powerful way. The trick is to not remain anchored in any one emotion for too long, and each time an emotion arises, to just be present with it, to allow it to flow through us, to be open and receptive, to feel it, and to let it touch our hearts and observe it.

When we let our feelings flow, instead of resisting them, we naturally return to a state of happiness. So, according to this philosophy, from wherever you are in any moment—you can feel your way to happiness. It doesn’t matter if you are angry, sad, afraid, or whatever—all you need to do is pivot. Pivoting is another concept popularized by Esther and Jerry Hicks.

It works like this: when you are engaged in thinking about what you don’t want—to do, or to have, or to feel—pivot. Just transfer that thought to thinking about what you do want—to do, or to have, or to feel. Pivoting helps you to get into a positive space and put your energy into creating positive thoughts to attain a positive outcome.

Remember, what you focus on increases—so focus on the positive. And whenever you catch yourself slipping into negative thought
patterns—pivot! Esther and Jerry Hicks developed a great way to pivot with your feelings too, using what they call The Emotional Scale. Whatever you are feeling right now, feel it, and then step up to the emotion that comes above it on the scale below. As they point out in their book,

Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires: Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibration becomes activated. And now, as that focus becomes stronger and the vibration becomes clearer, the Law of Attraction will bring to you more thoughts that match. At this point, the vibration will not have much attraction power, but if you maintain your focus longer, the power of the vibration will become further-reaching. And if you manage to stay purely focused upon any thought for as little as 68 seconds,
the vibration is powerful enough that its manifestation begins.

So, for example, say you are feeling irritated, item #14 on the list below. In this exercise, your task is to feel that feeling, and then step
just one step upward on the scale, to item #13, apathy. Ask yourself, “What part of this irritation I feel is really founded in apathy?” Now, feel that irritation and apathy, really feel it. Once you have a lock on feeling irritated or apathetic, ask yourself, “What part of this feeling is really based in contentment (#12) or intrigue (#11)?” Now, feel that. You get the gist of it. Keep stepping up the scale of emotions, keep spiraling upward and you’ll eventually find yourself grounded right in your center of feeling, where love and happiness abide—in your heart space.

The Emotional Scale

Our individual vibration contracts and expands according to our emotional state. When we are in a low, slow emotional vibration,
for example, we may feel depressed, hopeless, angry, hateful and so on. This is because we are broadcasting a low, slow signal into
the cosmic sea of energy. The universe responds to that vibration and simply mirrors it back to you. The same is true of high
emotional vibrations—your signal of happiness, joy, or love is sent out and returned to you. The higher your vibration is, the faster
synchronicities will appear in your life, the quicker manifestations will be for you, and the sooner you can achieve inner peace.

The slower your vibration is, on the other hand, the more likely it is that you will become stuck in that vibration, the more you may
spiral downward and build greater resistance around yourself. You can think of it as quicksand. If you get stuck in a pit of quicksand,
you can get out much faster if you are at the top of the pit than if you have fallen deep into the pit. By being “unconditionally present” with your emotions, you can create a non-resistant state of “allowing.” By doing this, you will always be mindful of your emotional state and will always be able to choose what emotion you want to radiate into the universal field—instead of your emotions choosing you! As you practice being present with your emotions, over time, it will become easier to maintain your emotional well-being. Surrender into your emotions and feel yourself rising above all that holds you back!

As you review the emotional scale below, consider that wherever you are on the scale, it will just take one tiny step to reach the
emotional state above where you are. So, just accept where you are on the scale, be mindful, and allow the emotion one step higher to flow into your energy field—and allow the emotion you are in to flow away. Step by step, you’ll find yourself flowing upward and arriving at the top of the scale—where you’ll feel ecstatic and empowered and draw all positive things into your life.

Free-Flowing Upward
These emotions/feelings are expanded emotions. They have high
energy and a high frequency:
1. Ecstasy
2. Love
3. Happiness
4. Joy
5. Gratitude
6. Excitement
7. Passion
8. Intention
9. Belief
10. Hope
11. Intrigue
12. Contentment

Fluxing and Contracting Inward
These emotions/feelings are contracted emotions. They have low
energy and a low frequency:
13. Apathy
14. Irritation
15. Failure
16. Skepticism
17. Blame
18. Anger
19. Hatred
20. Unworthiness
21. Grief / Victimization
22. Fear

As noted earlier, our hearts are our electromagnetic powerhouses. If we can focus and amplify the positive emotions of gratitude, joy, and abundance that originate in our heart center, we can override all negative emotions and align ourselves with the emotional intelligence of the Divine.

To guide your emotions, you need to observe your feelings with love, gratitude, and non-judgement. Don’t fear your dark emotions;
bring them into the light. Let them become shining guides on your path. Then, you can begin to live your life from love and to resonate
with your higher self.

When we are not in alignment with our higher self, we can live our lives unconsciously, allowing our emotions to control our actions. This can leave us anchored in a heavy emotion rather than moving forward to our best selves. It is important, however, not to push your emotions away for by being present with yourself and all of your emotions, you bring them into conscious awareness. Life can be both painful and joyful, and living life means feeling life. To paraphrase a popular saying, you can let go into your emotions, or you can be dragged along with them.

As your dormant, suppressed emotions are brought to light, you can integrate them—and when you do, they will no longer have power over you. So, access your emotional wounds and illuminate them. Be with them fully and be grateful for the scars that were born from them. You are a powerful healer! From your wounds comes wisdom, from your scars comes strength.

Someone once said that life begins when we step out of our comfort zone—and it is true! When we embrace our emotions, our confidence grows. We tap into our souls and become our own masters. We shape our own reality, guide our own destiny, and become one with our higher vibrations. By claiming supremacy over your shadow emotions, you will be like the phoenix, rising from the ashes. You will shine like the sun; your transformation will have begun!
