For those on the spiritual path, those who have chosen to tread the path of spiritual growth, life can become very heavy as one becomes aware of the emotional body and how it can be affected by the path of growth. The whole purpose of your spiritual path is to let go of and move on from the emotional body. It is the emotional body which the Self hangs on to, holding on to the fear, doubt, jealousy, anger, greed etc. Often you are not aware that this is happening to you, that the Self is hanging on to these emotions. As you face your fear and you face all of the emotional issues which are often left over energy from other lives, the Self has less and less to hold on to, and the Higher Self can then become a greater force in your life.
To do this is not easy, for the Earth plane is a place of pure emotion, from the dramas you watch on television to the dramas you allow to dominate and control your lives. Once the emotional body is released, not only can the illusion of the Earth plane be seen, but it can also allow you to see intuitively so much more than before.
In the Middle East at present, there is so much conflict created by emotion. The emotions of anger and fear are so strong that one wonders if they can ever be broken? Yes, they can be broken, but only when humanity realizes these emotions are the source of the problem, and they move away from them. But who is going to be the first to give in? The Self is determined to get its own way, to justify itself and to return an eye for an eye. Letting go of the emotional body is not easy for it involves facing issues and deep-seated pain. Often this pain is so deep one cannot even find it!
Many souls never even realize that, on the Earth plane, they have an emotional body. Yet it is this energy which is the cause of all strife and conflict on the Earth plane today. What happens when one releases the emotional body? One see’s through the illusion of the Earth plane, one has more energy to give to whatever one wishes to give it to, and one is no longer in anger, greed, fear, jealousy, etc. Because those particular energies are not there, there is more energy to manifest, and more energy to work with on one’s spiritual path, and one can become a very efficient and highly energized healer/reader/channel. Once the blocks of the emotional body are removed, the world is yours and so much is possible with the energy you are not using within the emotional body.
How does one let go, I can hear you asking? Face your fear, let go of your anger, jealousy, etc.; let go and give it no energy. That is the first step. Once you do this, then the Universe will lead and guide you to the next step.
