"Once you have identified the various
vibrations of your emotional body you will be able to learn how to allow
the expression of those vibrations. The intent of this exercise is to
learn the healthy, natural expression of each emotion. Approach this
exercise when you are able to clearly distinguish the different
signature vibrations of your emotions.
Whereas 'allowance' was required for the first exercise, the most
difficult aspect of this exercise is 'listening'. Set your intentions to
listen to your emotions speak. The purpose of this exercise is to have
your emotions tell you what they need for unconditional expression.
Unconditional expression is necessary for a healthy emotional body. All
emotions need to express. Dis-ease in Body results when emotions are
refused their natural expression. As each emotion has a signature
vibration, so does each emotion have a signature expression.
In the absence of full unconditional expression is distortion. And
distorted emotional expression interferes with the expression of Body.
Body then manifests physical discord and imbalance. When Will is denied
healthy, unconditional expression Body then becomes the vehicle for the
expression of Will. Obviously this could not be a healthy expression
because it has become the expression of an unhealthy Will. The
expression of an unhealthy Will through Body is called Dis-ease and
symptoms are the language used by the emotions. Repressing the natural
expression of emotion creates dis-ease.
- Start with an emotion you would most enjoy
communicating with. We'll use Joy as an example. Invite Joy into
dialogue with you. Drawing from your experience with Joy in the
previous exercise, feel Joy commune with you. See the colour of Joy,
feel the vibration of Joy, hear the sounds of Joy, locate Joy's
resonance in your body. Clearly identify the signature vibration of
- When you are satisfied you are communing with
Joy and Joy alone, ask Joy: "What do you need for optimum
healthy expression in our life?" Allow Joy to respond. You may
hear a voice or you may feel it in your body. Perhaps Joy needs to
sing. Perhaps Joy needs to dance. What ever Joy's expression is
allow it to be without judgment. If you judge Joy's choice of
expression you are denying Joy and those denials and judgments are
pushed down into Body where they manifest as disease.
- Explore the full spectrum of your emotional
body. Pace yourself. You do not need to dialogue with all your
emotions in one day. Take notes. Perhaps you could write a
"dictionary" of emotional behaviour to serve as a
Alternate between emotions you are comfortable
with and emotions you are uncomfortable with. Invite in Anger, for
example. Allow Anger to tell you what It needs to express Itself. Notice
how Anger's movement is more aggressive than the gentleness of Joy. This
does not mean that Anger is "bad". That is a judgment. The
energy of Anger is direct and concentrated, like a lightening strike.
The energy of Joy is subtle like a whispy summer breeze. Neither
is good. Neither is bad. They simply are what they are and to label them
is judgment. Judgment, as we know, distorts their natural expression.
- The next step would be practical application.
Practice expressing each emotion as they have instructed you. Some
parameters for the expression of emotion may need to be established
first. For example, Joy may want to sing and dance naked.
Unfortunately, in "modern" society dancing naked in the
street will get you arrested! Choose an appropriate environment for
the full natural expression of your emotions. Anger may need
something to strike in order to accommodate Its movement. Choose a
safe environment for the movement of Anger where no one can get hurt
including Self and personal property.
In a pace that is suited to you explore the
expressions of all your emotions until you are comfortable in your new
relationship with your Will. This is the process of Self mastery and
takes time. In a perfect world emotions are expressed spontaneously
without judgment, guilt or projection. In such a world there is no
disease because Body is expressing It's true nature and not a
