Carrying the Light?

How easy has it been to live life as if there were no reason to question your previous realities … as if there have been no metaphysical (or physical) earthquakes grappling at the foundations of your core beliefs? How successful have you been in your attempts to calm your stomach, steady your nerves, curb your urge to escape? In these past almost two years of unprecedented upheaval, I think we all have experienced moments of doubt and overwhelm. And yet the abiding question is ~ why are we here? What is our purpose here and now?

If you have ever conceived of yourself as a teacher, a healer, a light worker of any ilk, the challenge is to remember your soul self and not let the currents around you pull you down. And I mean that in a very literal way. Our vibrational frequency, the level of our consciousness from which we experience and respond to life, is directly impacted by our emotions. When we fall into doubt, worry, fear, the physical vibration of our bodies drops, we become denser matter.

Abraham Hicks has an Emotional Guidance Scale which lists emotions from the highest to the lowest vibrational frequency. Check it out:

1. Joy/Appreciation/Empowerment/Freedom/Love
2. Passion
3. Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness
4. Positive Expectation/Belief
5. Optimism
6. Hopefulness
7. Contentment
8. Boredom
9. Pessimism
10. Frustration/Irritation/Impatience
11. Overwhelm
12. Disappointment
13. Doubt
14. Worry
15. Blame
16. Discouragement
17. Anger
18. Revenge
19. Hatred/Rage
20. Jealousy
21. Insecurity/Guilt/Unworthiness
22. Fear/Grief/Desperation/Despair/Powerlessness

And while not included on the list, it is reputed that Shame is the very lowest of the human emotions.

So while external circumstances may appear to conspire to pull you into a lower emotional level, your intention and commitment to remain at a higher vibrational frequency can countermand that. When you find yourself dropping down the scale of emotions, simply focus on what will bring you back up. If you cannot conceive of moving all the way to joy, focus on moving up to whatever level you can manage. Use visualization, meditation or spend time in nature to bring your awareness to a thought or scenario that restores your comfort and hope, that rekindles your passion. After stabilizing, move yourself up the scale again until you can eventually regain your position at the top of the list.

When we live at a high vibrational frequency, we maintain the capacity to receive the wisdom, guidance, and overall benefits of our own higher self, our spirit guides and the beneficence of the universe itself. We can comprehend the larger picture, respond from a space of love. We can manifest our intentions.

To effectively do our work, we need to be able to channel the light and the love that can then resonate with others. In this way, our work shifts not only our own life, but the lives of everyone we touch. The resonance of higher consciousness spreads, much like the notes of a piano will vibrate the strings of a harp or violin in its vicinity. Think of it as heart strings. When your heart loves and is joyous, its strings send out vibrations which physically and energetically move the strings of the hearts of others. This is carrying the light. This is why we are here now. Remember?
