The shortcut to emotional freedom is also an easy step-by-step process that leads to self-actualization. Get out! Self-actualization? yes! Self-actualization. Let's talk about it :-)
Who wants to take a shortcut to emotional freedom? Yeah, I thought so. Let's start with a big concept. self actualization. Sounds good. But it also sounds kind of scary and overwhelming. And at the end of the day, you might just say, you know, not today, today is not the day for self actualization. But every day is the day for self actualization. And I have a really easy little ladder that you can climb, that I have climbed, and I'm going to share my examples and helps you get there a lot quicker with a lot more clarity. And here's the thing. If you wanted to get on the roof of your house, would you open a second storey window and throw a rope with a grappling hook up onto the roof and hoist yourself up onto the roof? I hope not. It's a good workout. But do you really need that workout? No, you're probably just gonna lean a ladder up against the side of the house and climb up the ladder. And that is exactly what we can do, when we use the emotional scale to help guide us to this process of self actualization on any little issue that we're facing or dealing with or want to work through and on bigger issues and bigger points in our lives. So to use this ladder, first, we want to understand what the rungs are on the ladder, the emotional rungs. These are things we all deal with, we all go through. And this is based on Dr. David Hawkins emotional scale, you could Google search that look it up if you'd like to see a graphic, and I'll just go over them real quickly, starting from lowest to highest. And not surprisingly, these each are correlated to a vibrational level on if we hang out at any one part of the scale, or on any one rung of the ladder, we are going to have that emotional vibration. And we're going to have experiences and attract experiences in our lives that continue to resonate at that level. So we want to always be moving up either within a certain area of our life or something that we're working through or in the bigger picture. So again, I'm just going to start from the bottom and go up. We have shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, pride, courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace, and enlightenment all the way at the top. So this is what you do you take whatever it is, that you are working on, or feel you want to work on and just ask yourself, where am I on this emotional scale? This, of course requires being honest with yourself. And if you're struggling with it, then obviously you're much lower on the scale. And then all you want to do is just move up one wrong, just say what can I do to move myself up one rung on this emotional scale ladder, right? And then when you get to that rung, you're feeling empowered, you're feeling motivated, you're realizing that you have all the power within you to keep doing this to keep moving up the scale. And you say, okay, you know, what can I do to move up to the next round, and then the next one, and the next one? And I have found from my personal experience, that pride is some place that I personally get hung up and can spend way more than necessary time and right, I'm willing to admit that. And but when I look at the scale, and I say, okay, what's next on the scale courage? So now I have to find within me the courage to move above the pride, right? Where can I utilize courage in this situation, to go up to the next scale. So I have found that courage is a frequently really pivotal level on the scale or rung on the ladder, where things really, really, really start to change. And then another big one, where I find a lot of change occurs is acceptance. Because after you move through courage, while you go from pride, to courage, and then neutrality, and then willingness, you got to be willing to do something different, to take different actions to think differently, to feel differently. And then you begin to find acceptance. And then that acceptance, you're like, Oh, actually, it wasn't that big of a deal or things don't matter as much as I thought they did. And then you can move up into the higher levels much more quickly, it gets exponentially quicker as you work through this, you know, move into reason love, joy, peace and ultimately enlightenment, either in the specific area, or in the bigger picture. And as I'm always saying, with everything else, this all becomes habit, you start do this more naturally. But initially, you want to use that awareness and look at the scale the emotional scale, as I mentioned, you could Google Search Dr. David Hawkins, emotional scale, and there's many others, you know, all of psychology we have basically different slight variations on the same scale, and just say, Where am I? Where do I want to be? What am I willing to do to move up one ladder, so enough with the crazy grappling hook, and hook setting yourself up. You know, don't reinvent the wheel. Don't keep repeating the same patterns and expecting different results. That's insanity. Just use the scale and just seek to go up one level at a time. It's pretty easy to do that.
