Finding Your High Vibe Emotions

Finding your high vibe emotions

Hi lovelies

How have you all been this week?

I’m not sure whether it’s because we are currently in Mercury Retrograde until the beginning of October but everything feels like it’s been a bit of a struggle this week!

For anyone wondering what the hell Mercury Retograde is, three times in a year the planet Mercury travels backwards across the sky.

Traditionally, astrology practicers report this as a time of confusion, delay, and frustration.  

In the past, I have experienced a couple of odd things during the Mercury Retrograde.

Once, pretty much all of the electrical equipment in my kitchen stopped working which was very annoying and the second time, I had two periods in a month!  

I’m not an avid astrology follower but each time it happens I do tend to feel like something is off.

It also looks like I got my stomach bug during this current time as well.  Coincidence?  I think not my friends! 

Every time I try to get on with something lately I feel myself distracted and unable to concentrate.  

My technology keeps letting me down; even now writing this blog the wifi isn’t working consistently and this has been happening for a couple of weeks now!

I had pretty big plans for my business in September and they’ve all gone to s**t!  I’m blaming it on the Mercury Retrograde because it couldn’t possibly be me just being lazy and unfocused surely?!

So, I thought it might be a good time to try and refocus my frustrations and take some time to get myself into a different vibe.  A higher vibe preferably!

Last week I wrote my blog on the subject of staying centred with a focus on the emotion that you find challenging.  The emotion that feels like it sometimes controls you rather than the other way around.

This week I want to focus on how we can fully choose what we want to feel.  Tantric teaching explains that we as human beings can control our emotional make up.  

We have a huge variety of emotions and states that we can access in our nervous system.  Even when completely teetotal we can feel extreme joy, pleasure, bliss, and even visions!  

It’s an area that is mostly untapped and is much bigger than most of us know or can get access to.  

As we are often conditioned as women to behave a certain way and also feel a certain way, our emotional systems are often shut down and we force our emotions back inside and bottle them up.  

As a result, we then hunger for these experiences and these feelings and so we look for them in other ways like getting drunk, taking drugs, or eating certain foods in order to feel this way.

I for one absolutely used to use alcohol and food in this way.  When I was in my twenties I was always getting drunk because I wanted to escape my life.  

Alcohol also used to make me feel all the things I wanted to feel in a sober state; confident, sexy, relaxed, and untouchable.  

On a miserable hangover, I would then inhale as many sugary, chocolatey things I could get my hands on because I wanted to feel high again so to speak. 

Now, I know that I can feel all of those things without needing alcohol and to eat half my bodyweight in chocolate!  I can get it through my own emotional regulation.  

I’m not saying I don’t ever drink alcohol anymore; I love having cocktails with my friends (when I’m not pregnant!) and I still love chocolate but I don’t need them to feel a certain way as I can do that for myself.  

Another thing that we tend to do as humans is think that our best emotional experiences come from other people; that they are the source of our happiness/love/pleasure.  

Of course, a person influences and inspires us but we are the person who falls madly in love or feels exalted.  

The feelings happen inside of our bodies and we can create these feelings because we are the source, our nervous system, not the other person! 

We also tend to project our greatest emotional experiences onto others. It is the same when it comes to sex. 

Many of us believe that men are the source of our pleasure, that they are the ones who turn us on which often leads to frustration. 

The truth is, it is our body that creates the turn-on, the pleasure, and the orgasm!  

If we learn how to feel more in control of our emotional pharmacology we begin to become less reliant on external factors.  

If we tear down the social conditioning that tells us that other people are the ones who are responsible for making us feel happy and good, we stop putting our lives on hold waiting for that to happen. 

At the end of the day, it’s up to us to create the inner vibration of our desires so that we can experience them for ourselves. 

We have to take responsibility for what emotions we want to feel and give some real thought to the emotional states we most want to inhabit rather than putting everything on hold until we get what we think we want from the external world.  

We can be in those emotional states in this very moment and that makes it all the easier to help us get the things that we want in life! Which you know I’m all about! 

So how do we get into these states I hear you ask me.   

Well, I’m going to share with you one of my favourite meditations which is super simple and doesn’t take up a lot of time which is always helpful if you’re super busy like me!  

It really helps focus the mind through its methodology to keep you in a high vibe state and the more you practice it, the more it becomes second nature for you to choose higher vibration emotional states and start to create that inner control of your emotions.  

High vibe meditation

Think about two high-vibration emotions that you would really like to feel and embody more of the time.  

For me, I like to choose joy and gratitude (emotions that I used to struggle to feel without a fair few vodkas inside of me!).

Close your eyes and feel into your first high vibration emotion, really embody it and spend a few minutes there.

Then choose your second high vibration emotion and again, really feel into it and spend the time there.

Then try experiencing both at the same time for a few minutes, reminding yourself that if your mind starts to wander that you can choose your emotional reality. 

Remind yourself you are not your emotions or your sensations, you are the experiencer.  You can create your own reality; say it to yourself as you sit with these high vibe emotions.  ‘I create my own emotional reality’. 

Go about your day wearing a bracelet or a watch that will help remind you of your choice to continue choosing these emotions. 

As long as you choose your desired emotional state, you will keep the bracelet/watch on the same wrist.

If you catch yourself forgetting and not being in those emotions anymore, change the bracelet/watch to the other wrist. 

This practice aims to get yourself to choose to feel your high vibration emotions for 12 consistent hours. Choose those emotions over and over again. 

It will be challenging, particularly if you are anything like me and have been feeling unfocused lately!  

But the emotional muscle is like any muscle, if you use it consistently it will get stronger and your high vibe emotional choices will help to support you more in life.  

As I mentioned in a previous blog, we don’t ever want to squash down our emotions, we want to feel all the feels!  

But we can use all of our emotions and also practice choosing the higher vibration ones.  

Tell me in the comments which two emotions you chose.  I’d love to know!

Happy high vibing!

Much love
