Spirit is both single, like a wave on the ocean, and plural. We are both the wave and the ocean. Everything we can see or observe is within us. There is nothing that exists that is not part of us.
The energy of our Spirit is most like the energy of our feelings. Spiritual and emotional energies are both expansive, filling up all the space. It’s just that spiritual energy is lighter, more ethereal than emotional energy.
When we listen with our whole body and not just our brain, we feel the truth of what’s being said, or the lie. We feel it. Feeling all our feelings is how we develop and hone our intuition, one of our seven senses. We are not limited to only five senses, as we were taught in school. Our seventh sense is imagination from our Soul. We mature spiritually as we learn to feel progressively more of our feelings every year.
Our spirit communicates with our bodymind through our feelings, especially our first feelings. The moment we intend to do something, anything, our first feeling is our spirit’s direct communication to us. Paying attention to our first feelings makes us more spiritually evolved.
Time, as we know it, only exists for our bodymind. Our Spirit and our Soul are eternal, so for them, everything is happening here and now. That means, if something is going to happen tomorrow, it is already here and now to our Spirit and also to our Soul. They always see things coming long before our ego personality does. They want to help us navigate the maze.
Before any good thing ever happened to us, our spirit expressed a good feeling the moment we first intended to do it. Our spirit’s first feeling can be intense or subtle, but it only lasts for a brief moment, usually less than a second. Then it’s gone. No residuals. If we were not paying attention, we completely missed it.
Likewise, before any bad thing ever happened to us, we got a bad feeling the moment we intended it. Sometimes we get the bad feeling when we get our first glimpse that something’s coming. Chances are, we proceeded onward anyway. Then, when it went bad, deep down, we always knew it was going to.
Spiritual wisdom is learning to notice and pay attention to feelings that are coming up, not just thinking about them. On as negative level, the instant we fail to feel a feeling that comes up, we space out and our subconscious brain takes charge. Feelings are hundreds of times more important than our thoughts.
It is alright to allow our brain to wonder why we experienced those feelings, but not until we actually went inside and felt them. Then, allowing our brain to question why that feeling came up lets us see behind the curtain, to observe the backstories, the “why” of what is or was going on.
Waking Back Up
Our brain has a processing speed limit of 24 frames per second. That only lets it recognize the physical and mental dimensions. The problem with that is, the processing speed of our higher dimensions is more like a hundred frames per second. Our heart operates at the higher speeds, but not our brain.
Our heart is always meant to be Alpha, the operating system in charge of our consciousness. Our brain is meant to be beta, a completely devoted servant to our heart. That’s where the seven habits come in.
The first three habits: Breathe Out Strong: Stand Up Straight: and Feel all our Feelings take up so much of our brain’s operating bandwidth that they keep us firmly in the present moment where our heart rules our consciousness.
Breathing out strong has the added benefit of drawing our spirit fully down into our bodymind where our Spirit’s chakras align with our bodymind’s chakras. Then, at each intersection in our life, our own values, principles and beliefs dictate all our thoughts and actions.
When we are in the present moment, our heart takes in all our organ system’s incredible wisdom and talents, integrating all of that effortlessly in real time. Because our Spirit, our Soul and our heart all align to the higher frequency constellation of love, our heart innately desires what our Spirit and Soul desires.
Our heart’s main function is to create our own unique world in the most loving and efficient manner. Its warmth and unconditional love nourishes everyone and everything in our world into their highest potential. When we focus our love into a profession, art, hobbies or something we can put our passion into, then all our genius qualities and talents can come forth and bear fruit.
