“Because you have the ability to manage your emotional reactions based on your perceptions and thoughts, you get to choose which emotions to feel and convey in every situation. Choose love.” Gratitude + Forgiveness x (LOVE) = Happiness by Aimee Mosco and Donald Ferguson, pg. 70

Part of our human (spiritual) lesson plan and greatest opportunity for growth comes from the emotional fuels we choose to generate and experience during life. The degree of love we are able to integrate at any given time is the measurement of our spiritual progress.

We often feel at the mercy of our emotions because they are dramatic and can fluctuate so wildly. When our charged emotions influence thoughts that drive our actions, we can find ourselves taking wild rides which land us at unfavorable destinations! Volatile emotions do not feel like products of choice, but from the perspective of your soul, every event in your life (to include emotional reaction) is a product of a choice you have made on some level.


It’s important to understand how the spiritual part of you processes emotional energy if you are looking to take on a more conscious and enlightened approach to inviting love into your life.

Your core beliefs represent the engine that drives your life experiences. Your thoughts represent the road map to a destination and your emotions represent the fuel that powers the engine of your life journey.

If you make a conscious commitment to consider your truest and most pure beliefs, and then allow natural thoughts to form from those beliefs before you let emotions steal the show, the emotional reactions you generate will be very different from the ones that arise when you feel first and think later. When you actively manage your process for creating fuel, you will begin creating fuel from choice. Choose love.

Here’s how it works:

If you truly believe that all human beings are here to learn and grow, then it is likely natural for you to think that part of the growth process involves making mistakes. If you consider this belief and allow a natural thought to form from this belief upon making what you perceive to be a “mistake”, the emotional reaction you have to the mistake may be very different than if you simply react without considering your true belief. If you take a moment to connect with your true belief before you react with anger or disappointment in yourself, you may find that feelings of compassion (which are based in love) come more naturally when you follow the trail from true belief to natural thought to emotion. Try it and see what happens!
