Dis-Identifying From Your Emotions

Anger arises when expectations do not match reality. Saying “I am angry,” is one of the most disempowering phrases you can ever utter.  Not only does saying it deny the reality of the situation, more dangerously, using the word “AM” equates an emotion with who you are.  This is a surefire path to suffering.

The ego is responsible for misleading you into identifying yourself with your body, emotions and thoughts. You may have a body, feel emotions and think thoughts, but none of these are who you are. You are a magnificent spiritual being. Identifying with anything other than your true spiritual nature will eventually lead to suffering.

In his latest book, A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle defines the “pain-body” as “the energy field of old, but very-much-alive emotion that lives in almost every human being.” It contains both individual and collective elements. In other words, this is your emotional body, which contains all of the accumulated emotions and feelings that you have become attached to. For all of us who are not yet self-realized, this emotional body becomes a pain-body that is activated by various stimuli.

Identification with your pain-body can totally blind you to your true self. In some cases, when your pain-body is activated, your personality can change overnight, as you forget who you are and “become” your pain. The Law of Attraction tells us that this is a self-reinforcing cycle. Pain attracts more pain, and when the conscious mind is contributing, your pain-body grows even faster.

If you suffered from a bad experience in the past, whenever a similar experience arises, your pain-body automatically recalls the memory. Instantly, it reminds you of this by secreting the same chemicals that produced the initial feeling, just like a tuning fork that begins to vibrate when a nearby turning fork plays the same note.

Worse, you get addicted to these chemicals (even when they’re not good for you) which reinvigorates your pain-body.

Your goal is to break your identification with your pain-body, and identify with your true self. There are two practices that can help you to accomplish this.

Presence

The first is to bring “present awareness” to the situation. This is in keeping with the mystic directive, “know thyself.”   When you are aware that you are being triggered, rather than simply reacting, you can remain detached, and separate your emotions from your true self.

Tolle believes you will eventually become so sick and tired of being stimulated by your own and other’s pain-bodies that you will, in desperation, seek to dis-identify with them. This can happen in an instant, since all that’s needed is to shine present awareness on the situation.

This is what happened to him, and explains the revelations that others undergo, when they “snap” from overwhelming suffering and spontaneously gain Presence. The downside of relying on overwhelming suffering is that it can take a while to get “fed up,” and “snapping” does not always produce a positive result.

Purification

The second approach is the path of purification, that is, eliminating the negative energies that are lodged in your emotional body. This also requires present awareness, but can be dramatically facilitated by an external source of high-vibrational energy.

Physics tells us that higher frequency energy is more powerful than lower-frequency energy. When you infuse higher dimensional energy into a lower dimensional form, the lower energies must leave or be transformed.

By eliminating the lower density, negative energies, you will not be stimulated by another’s pain-body. Your tolerance will grow exponentially, as you will no longer unconsciously resonate with others’ emotional pains. You will remain compassionate, but detached.

Of course, without changing your thoughts or, at least, becoming aware of the thoughts that precipitated the painful emotions, clearing out your pain-body will be only a temporary solution. But when your emotional body is cleared, you will be less likely to identify with it. Unhealthy feelings will become the exception, rather than the rule. You will come to identify with your true self, and not your emotions.

When your emotional body is clear, the Law of Attraction will work in your favor. People who were previously attracted to the emotional pains in your energy body will no longer be attracted. Purification eliminates the toxins that attract “toxic people.” When this pain is replaced by love and higher vibrational energies, you will attract higher minded, spiritual people and will actually repel angry or fearful people.

As Jesus said, “For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.” This is the Law of Attraction in biblical terms. You must decide what you want to attract. Presence and purification lead to identification with your true self; unconscious thoughts lead to pain and suffering.

    Dear Ed,
    This is such a wonderful article. It has profound truth!!! I know it is often tough to be “present”. but just being present is what that is all required to be happy. Happiness is a conscious choice and it does not matter what the situation is. Last night i watched this movie – A Rumor of Angels. And i must say, one need not even grieve over death. It is easy said than done, but putting together the truth of this article and the message of the movie, definitely it is possible not to be dejected even when a dear one passes away. (one would be able to understand what i am referring to here only if one believes in the existence of souls and the journey of the souls. Thanks for the great article.

    Ed, I am grateful for your reminder to live as often as possible in the present. More importantly, to “always remember” who I really am: a spiritual being having mortal experiences, not a mortal being hoping for spiritual experiences. Love and Blessings, Doc Meek, Nov 5, 2009

  3. Of all the components of who we are, it is only the spirit that we can identify with as our true nature. The body, the mind, the emotions, and the will are attachments to this spirit. The soul, which consists of the intellect, emotions, and will, give character to this spirit.

    Body and soul, therefore, are not what we are. The body and soul can change, but our spirit remains what it is. If they are not what we really are, we can detach ourselves from them. Since they are part of our accidental identity, we can change them for the better or even for the worse. Why choose the worse, when we can choose the better?

    I didn’t realize that being present could be so protective of our energy. Learning to be present to your current emotions and to be able to access any of them is a great skill I think but to think that this skill could be so useful is amazing. Thanks for this article.

    Great article! I have read Eckhart Tolles’ (A new Earth) as well as (The power of now). These books are exceptional and are must reads. the confirmation of the book in this article has just enforced my faith and belief in its contents.

    I was so empressed and touched by these writings that I also purchased his additional texts- (Stillness Speaks) and (Practicing the power of now). I am also so gratefull for the information in this article. It is a reminder of the importance of being in the present.

    I work hard everyday to do this and your postings are so helpful and a blessing to recieve. The Evolution postings are something I look forward to recieving. They are not only a comfort but a wonderful tool for all of us who are seeking to connect with our true inner selfs.

    Thank you so much!

    Dear Ed, I have been healing for quite sometime now. I did not realize how bad my pain was until one day I was studying the Bible with my 2 girls. The information we were studying said that Jehovah God sees the good in us that we may not see in ourselves.I immediately started sobbing like a baby uncontrollably because I have suffered from a very, very low self-esteem. So low I did not think I had any good -therefore the flow of tears. I have had to do a lot of reading to help myself. Thank you so much for the article Dis-Identifying From Your Emotions. I cried while reading it. I copied it as well so I do not forget the wonderful information in it. Thanks again, Mary Harris

    when you do not get what you expect from people you love & trust-parents,children ,husband,you see you sacrificed yourself for nothing.
    First it`s anger,then pain ,after shame about yourself and low self esteem that can lead to depresion or even suicide.It`s very hard to forget and forgive,maybe someoane can detach from pain by admitting they can not manifest more,because their level of evolution is low,and try to live with that,because they are yours relatives and you can not change this fact.Next step to free yourself ,is to not hope or expect nothing from nobody ,give and treat everyone exactly how he deserve, take your responsability and do the best you can for yourself,let the mind and intelect to take control .You may feell compasion at the end for them and yourself,the burden of pain from the back will go away and you feel free,kind alone ,but centred.With all your energy back,healty,creative,and in peace.
