Have you ever felt lost or stuck and thought, “Geez, why couldn’t I have been born with some kind of compass or GPS system that can direct me toward my desired experiences?”
Each of us was born with an internal GPS system that lets us know where we are in consciousness and helps us to navigate our life experiences – it’s called our emotions. Similar to a car or mobile phone’s GPS, our emotions provide us with moment-to-moment navigational advice, but rather than giving us specific directions, they provide guidance through an emotional feedback system of feelings.
So, how exactly does this system work?
Our feelings serve as an internal feedback system letting us know whether or not the thoughts we’re thinking are leading us in the direction of our desired experiences. If you feel off-balance, stressed, scared, anxious, or let’s face it, anything less than love or happiness, that is your internal GPS system letting you know that how you feel does not align with what you want to experience. Accordingly, when we feel happy, or are in a state of joy, serenity or bliss, these are signals that let us know that the thoughts we are thinking are leading us to what we desire in reality.
While you may highly covet the feelings of love, success and happiness because they make you feel good, every emotion we feel serves a purpose because each feeling is meant to let us know where our thoughts are leading us. When your thoughts are on track with your desires, your GPS system provides you with a range of positive feelings, which then elevates your consciousness to the place it needs to be to keep you on your path. However, when you experience negative feelings, or those emotions that make you feel ‘less than,’ that means your current thought stream is leading you toward an experience, or responding to your current one, as an undesirable thing. Therefore, whenever you feel anything less than love, peace and happiness, that’s your clue to check into your thought stream, and see where you need to refocus your thoughts and ideas back toward the things that you want to experience.
Feeling stressed and anxious about creating your desired experiences?
Here are some simple steps that will recalibrate your GPS system, and get you back to a state of happiness:
1. Still your physical body.
2. Find a quiet space, even if it’s only in your head.
3. Begin to take deep breaths, matching the length of your inhale and exhale.
4. Close your eyes, and begin to still your emotions until they feel as smooth as glass.
5. Focus solely on your breath and repeat the words to yourself: “I AM LOVE – I AM CALM – I AM PEACE”.
6. Stay in this space until you feel your thought stream fill up with those ideas that allow you to feel happy.
I invite you to share your ideas for how to recalibrate your internal GPS and get yourself back on the road to your desired experiences.
To your spirit & success!
