People can want Enlightenment, including the goodies that come with it like more love, kindness, Law of Attraction skills, etc., however, all spiritual experience really has emotional work at its foundation, because Enlightenment is an emotion.
Every spiritual rock star we want to emulate like Buddha, Jesus, all of these, the trick is to emulate their emotion. Jesus said the “Kingdom of Heaven is inside of you.” The Kingdom of Heaven is emotional!
Emotions are the handle to spiritual Enlightenment, even elation, on a grand scale.
For example, when a skilled healer puts a client on a table for a hands on healing, they heal with the emotion of the client being fully well. In other words, they heal with emotion! They heal with the emotions of “Heaven,” bliss, joy, love, elation, etc.
What about Law of Attraction? You may be familiar with Esther Hicks channeling Abraham to so many fans. Her message is to move up the emotional scale and “manifest your dreams” with emotion.
So the deepest, most permeating skills of spirituality are emotional. And if we have the gunk in our emotional body that us humans get like “nobody loves me” (that’s a big one), or “I’ll never find a mate” (that’s another big one) then that’s the filter through which we perceive our reality.
If we remove that filter, we get a profound shift. You are in a profound shift right now. Do you know what happens when filters are removed? Possibilities. Everything is possible all of a sudden. Joy is possible. Love is possible. Independence is possible. (This is big, especially for women. Subconsciously, fear makes us crave dependence). Healing and Manifesting are possible.
Want a good relationship? Feel the emotion of a dynamite relationship. Want an abundant business? Feel the emotion of an enjoyable, fruitful business.
One thing Esther Hicks doesn’t talk about so much, but you can ask for those emotions. Isn’t that easy? One of the ways to do inner work and clear emotions is to ask Divine Help for a profound change, a miracle even. In the spiritual world, our strongest power is to ask–ask for miraculous, stupendous, amazing emotions.
Everything, including Enlightenment, will flow from there.
