I once heard a story about how all our feelings come from bubbles. Sounds strange, I know, but bear with me for a few paragraphs…..thinking this way has greatly helped me deal with negative emotions and situations as they arise.
In any given scenario, we are always connected to a feeling bubble. Feeling bubbles are invisible bubbles which float close by, and each feeling bubble contains it’s own feeling type.
If we are feeling happy, we are connected to a bubble with happy feelings. If we are angry we are connected to a bubble containing feelings of anger. While connected, we are also contributing to the bubble making it bigger and stronger. This applies to all our feelings. If we are in rage, we are connected to an intense anger bubble and we contribute to the rage bubble inflating it exponentially. The stronger we hold a particular feeling, the the larger and more intense the bubble becomes.
The value in this is that we can connect to any bubble, at any time, in any given situation. So, let’s just say you have had an intense argument with your partner and you’re feeling miserable and angry. You are currently tapped into the angry bubble and possibly a few other feeling bubbles at the same time i.e. hurt, sadness, regret, etc…
In this situation, all you would need to do is remember that there are happy, calm, peaceful bubbles all around you. The next step would be to connect to one of these positive feeling bubbles. Visualize this connection as clearly as possible and watch how this begins to change your mood. Watch how you begin to feel better. Visualize the flow of positive feelings from the bubble, into you’re body, and then going back to the bubble. You and the bubble become a closed circuit so to speak where there is a continuous flow of the positive feeling between you and the bubble. That feeling bubble will begin to get bigger, stronger and more intense.
With practice, this process will become easier. Connecting to the positive feeling bubble will become easier, disconnecting from the negative feeling bubble will become easier. You will be able to transition from negative to positive
feeling bubbles more naturally and with less force. The negative feeling bubbles will also become smaller and less intense.
Most importantly you will begin to understand that you have the ability to control you’re emotions, at anytime, in any situation. That, with your intent, you can connect to a positive feeling bubble at any time. You will realize that you control you’re feelings and you’re feelings do not control you.
Another important aspect about contributing to the bubbles is that the more you feed a particular feeling bubble the bigger that bubble becomes and the less room there is for other bubbles. The other bubbles would have to be very small to fit into your vicinity since the larger bubble is taking up most of you’re personal space. You begin carrying that larger bubble closer to you and seem to always be connected to it. You are connected to it more frequently than any other bubble and, just as you feed the bubble, it begins to feed you as well. It begins to influence and affect your life. For example always being connected to a hate bubble will strengthen that bubble. The more hate you feel the more you are intensifying that bubble so that it becomes bigger and you become more strongly connected to it. It will also feed hate back you you. Therefore, you will be living in a hateful state more often and creating more hateful situations in your life.
On the opposite side, the same applies to feelings of love. If you are frequently connected to a love bubble, the stronger that bubble will become. It will grow bigger and displace the other feeling bubbles around you, so the most predominant feeling you will have is love. It will also feed love back to you so you are in a loving state more often and therefore will create more loving situations in your life.
Ultimately, how you feel, will dominate what happens in your life. Your feelings create your situations. You’re situations create your life.
So, which bubble do you want to stay connected too?
