It’s a new world here now.
The Splitting of the worlds – google it – happened. There is a LOT of info out there on how and why it happened and what is the result.
I only know that I’ve been holding on to my pants and really digging into everything that’s scary in this moment and it turns out that I can exist with the most uncomfortable of emotions and still feel joyful.
It was something I happened upon and let me tell you it was unplanned and completely uncontrolled – it just happened. New world characteristic- completely new things happen all the time. Open is not the word to be with it it’s present. Like in the moment at all times because the flow of the new completely washes out the old. It’s good to swim in it 🙂
I sat down to meditate and that is always a good idea and based on my experience with meditation I was prepared for a ride and new unexpected insights but I was not even remotely clued into what happened next.
“Just be joyful” were there in me those words arising out of nowhere. I know this sentence is grammatically incorrect it’s how it comes this new energy, non linear. In chunks of information streamed constantly!
Ok. What followed was a breathing technique where you breathe in joy and along with the exhale you send it to all the parts in your body and then when the body is nice and relaxed, you send the feeling of joy to all the emotions that arise in you, all thoughts.
Breathe in and feel joy. Then guide your breath to wherever joy comes from in your body. For me it’s the chest area but maybe for you it can be your brain or lungs or belly if you’re lucky 😉 it will fill your body with relaxation and you’ll smile. Hi 😉 keep going. There will be a thought that will stop it. Breathe in joy and send it to that thought anyway.
See it release. Keep going. Wherever any emotion is located that is not immediately identifiable as joy , send joy to it anyway.
It will become a conscious choice, a commitment to be joyful no matter what happens in your body; no matter what other feelings arise, no matter how important or urgent or what memories they bring or how attractive or sticky they feel, you choose joy anyway and send it to all of them.
For four hours. I did that for four hours in this wonderful new space and I didn’t even notice the time because the alchemy of it felt so good so amazing so full of insight into my present.
And. Now. The purpose of this post. The gist of it. Well lately it has come to my attention that marketers and big companies use our basic lizard brain to sell more products and services and I always thought people were aware of this fact but it turns out they aren’t. The emotions they use are: fear guilt greed and exclusivity.
That’s your luxury market.
And it never sat right with me. I want to run a business but I don’t want to use fear or greed or exclusivity to make people buy my products.
I wanted to appeal to other emotions I want people to feel good buying and using my services but how do I do that of they don’t know that a. It it used and b. They have a choice?
So i had my answer while I was lying joyful for hours. That the basic emotions, the new ones should be
Only buy and do things out of those emotions. As a true scientist I am testing it on myself first for side effects hihihi.
Since then I have added new emotions to my list. Like abundance and inspiration and awe and pride and I would appreciate your suggestions because I am willing to find and experiment creating and spending my LIFE living those emotions.
