If you truly knew what you should do next you would ‘feel’ whether it was wrong or right. Being in touch with your feelings means that you ‘listen’ to what they are telling you and you act accordingly. If you feel a wrenching in your gut it means that either you shouldn’t proceed or that if you do you should be extremely focused on the tasks and hand and NOT be distracted. It means that you are in tune enough with your feelings that you listen to them and make effective choices.
Your five senses of touch, taste, smell, hearing andsight ‘feel’ electromagnetic and mechanical frequencies and input their differences in potential to our brains. Our brains then make ‘copies’ of the sensory input as thoughts and images and the feelings these thoughts and images generate. It then ‘stores’ them in our subconscious minds for the ‘predictive’ future anticipation of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of ourselves and others.
Our brains anticipate our next ‘moves’ based on our observation of our environment filtered through the previously programmed experiences and feelings stored in our subconscious minds in order to ‘predict’ and ‘anticipate’ what our next behaviors should be in order to maintain our safety and security. The feelings that we store and accept as true in our subconscious minds are integral in how we proceed. When thoughts are repeated with the feelings underlyingthem they become beliefs.
Our beliefs get stored in our subconscious minds and if they are erroneous and not accurate they can affect not only our safety and security, but our growth and expansion as well. Always test what you believe by understanding why you are feeling what you are feeling. How do you do this? You experience what you feel to its deepest level, ask for Divine guidance, seek that guidance in the peace and quiet of the spirit within and knock on the door of serving others.
The acid test is always, does it benefit all or just me? If it benefits everyone then you should feel good about it. If it benefits just you and hurts another, then you should feel bad about it. If you don’t, then your ego is in command and NOT the Spirit of God. Get in touch with your feelings everyday by praying for direction, meditating for guidance and serving others with Divine love. You will come to KNOW which way to proceed instead of ‘believing’ which way to proceed. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
