Do Your Emotions Serve You as You Call in Money?

Do your emotions serve you as you call in your abundance?

I’ve always been a ‘deep feeler’ and extremely sensitive to the emotions that are present within my moment-to-moment experience.

While this opens me to a beautiful depth of experience, it doesn’t always serve me. For example, I recently had an experience related to money in my business where I was completely caught off guard. Doubt, worry, and fear reared their collective heads. Each emotion set off a series of thoughts that spiraled me very quickly towards despair and hopelessness.

Each thought felt completely true.

This is where I have to start doing a dance with my emotions. Intellectually and Spiritually, I know that spending time in doubt, worry, and fear block my abundance. Yet, I am feeling deep truth in the moment I am scared.

I had many people in my early life who told me I felt “too much” and I just needed to “get over” what I was feeling. As a result, I have this habit of digging in my heels and amping my emotions to “prove” that what I am feeling is “right.”

I know this is not a particularly enlightened pattern, nor one that serves me in the slightest. But how do I get out of the spiral of needing to honor where I am and simultaneously turn my attention to where I want to be? I’ve been pondering the answer to this question because not only do I see this in myself, but I see it in a variety of ways in the women I serve.

The answer has been unfolding for me over the last week and completely popped for me while I was speaking about this question with a very dear colleague and friend at lunch last week. And when you understand it, you can use it to significantly shift your relationship with your emotions to influence your flow of abundance.

The answer starts with the understanding that negative emotion is simply a signal you believe something your Source (Divine/God/Soul) doesn’t believe. The negative feeling is showing you separation from Truth.

Deep emotion, then, is actually a gift. Your Source is extremely good at pointing out when you are believing something that isn’t Truth. If you weren’t aware of it, you’d continue to believe it and continue to have that misbelief affect your level of abundance negatively. Because you are aware of it, you get to create a new series of thoughts, which more closely align with Truth.

To make this more tangible, let me go back to my example. When I review the situation that created all the negative emotion, I can see the thoughts fueling the emotions were:

If I can’t make money doing “x,” then I’ll never have enough.
I’m a failure if I can’t make money in the way I’ve made it before.

Neither of these are Truth and yet they highlighted where I derail: feeling not enough.

The emotions of fear, doubt, and worry gifted me with a deeper understanding of what emotion and belief I want to spend my time amplifying: feeling, knowing, trusting that I am enough. This will both enhance the joy I feel in day-to-day life and my flow of abundance. This gives me the opportunity to truly enhance and build my experience with abundance that wouldn’t have been possible had I not been aware of the beliefs I still carried within me.

The internal war I felt before (needing to dig my heels in to prove I was right) gets to dissolve in the face of more deeply understanding this dynamic. The feelings are right because they are shining a spotlight on what can change. The feelings shouldn’t be ignored because they are here to teach me something. I don’t have to stay in them for long to prove they are right, I simply need to allow myself to see the new Truth they are allowing me to reach.

When you allow your emotions to be your teachers, you have the ability to see those sneaky underlying thoughts and beliefs that are blocking your flow of abundance.
