Nothing could be more important than coming to recognise the existence of your Emotional Guidance System and how it works, for without it you have no consistent guidance. The emotions you feel, in any moment, are pointing out to you the agreement or disagreement between you and your Source regarding the thought that is active in you at the moment of the emotion. If you can understand that through life, before you entered this body and since your inner being has become the vibrational summation of all that you have lived and now stands as the vibrational equivalent to all that is good and if you can then understand that your emotions are giving you feedback about how your current thoughts blends with that all knowing, pure, positive energy viewpoint of source, hen and only then can you fully appreciate your emotions.
So when you feel negative emotion, it always means that your currently active thought is out of alignment with the knowledge of Source. In other words, when you find fault with yourself, when you decide that you are inappropriate or unworthy, you will always feel negative emotion because the source within you only feels love towards you. When you disapprove of others, you will always feel negative emotion because the source within you only loves others. If you will remember that whenever you feel negative emotion, it always means you are in disagreement with source, then you can deliberately reframe your thoughts until you come into alignment. That is the way to effectively utilise your guidance system.
