Every emotion has a frequency. The lower the frequency, the worse the emotion feels. That make sense, but have you ever tried to put all of the emotions on a scale from the very lowest to the tippy-top highest? Abraham did it and wow, is it eye opening.
Now you know where you are and, more importantly, what comes next.
You cannot jump from the feelings on the bottom directly to the ones on the top. It’s too far a leap. Like a dial on an old radio, even if you zip fast you are still passing through all of the channels on your way to a new station. (Perhaps I should say “like the scroll dial on an iPod". That’s more modern.)
The Emotional Guidance Scale
4. Positive Expectation/Belief
What does this mean for you and your family?
A child who is angry is feeling more power than fear.
A child who is worried is vibing higher than anger.
Same goes for you.
When you don't judge or push again the emotion you can let the progression up the scale continue. That's compassion. That's allowing. And especially when you live together, that's awesome.
