The Emotional Body
There are many "bodies" working in partnership with your physical form. The mental body is divided into the subconscious, superconscious -- along with the three aspects of consciousness -- negative, positive, and neutral. Each mental aspect plays a clear and unique role in unfolding time and progressing life. Because the brain has yet to develop its sophisticated pathways for all of its vast neural-connections when humans grow through early childhood, the emotional body takes over the responsibility for the blueprint of early growth. Each emotion is a tool and everyone has equal amounts of every emotion . . . how much you use, in any given moment, is either a conscious or subconscious choice. Here's where the mental body and the emotional body work together, or oppose each other . . . even the most oppositional moments can have positives. With most of the conscious choices, you're clearly aware of them -- it's the subconscious choices that are thrust upon you. From the age of zero to three years, the untrained brain uses the emotional body with two distinct toolsets . . . envy and frustration. The young child is envious of what the world around it is able to achieve; this envy drives the child to try so many things, and in its failures it has to deal with the frustrations. These frustrations would stop it from growing except envy comes raging back and stimulates the retry, and the retry, and the retry until mastery of the skillset ultimately occurs. Many people never grow out of this developmental realm and use this combination throughout life . . . this is an evolutionary stage common in the early incarnations of human existence. When this is the lifestyle, it governs the entire life with these two emotions. Our prayer is that you recognize the purpose of envy, and that it's not a bad thing -- just a young thing . . . frustration is its partner. When you're in the midst of experiencing these tools, they've come up from your subconscious . . . grow with them and honor their purpose . . . then move on through the conscious choices of other tools in your emotional body without the slightest judgement of yourself or others . . . you won't get stuck . . .
