One of the most abusive things we do is to classify the emotional states of others as negative and therefore invalid.
The concepts tied to the metaphor of Negative are all designed to be unpleasant and unwanted and unwanted in thy presence.
I give the new age spiritual industry a metric fuck ton of shit on this issue and here’s why from the Psychospirilosophy view as viewed by your friendly neighborhood Rock ‘N’ Roll Shaman.
In case you’re new to what I do, here’s a quick reminder of what Psychospirilosophy is. It’s a tool and a view that I use to help me figure my shit out.
Psychologically speaking it’s good to understand why you are doing anything you are doing.
Spirituality is what ever works for you, just have something is all I am saying.
Philosophy in this view is the sayings we create for ourselves or quotes we borrow from others that we tell everyone is the talk we are walking or our personal set of philosophies that we use to guide our life.
There are no negative emotions and it is a form of abuse to say otherwise. Here’s why.
One would never know joy if one never knew sorrow and it’s sweetness comes from the deepest of love that creates the deepest of sorrow.
Psychologically speaking by saying some emotions are negative we will do anything we can to avoid them or someone experiencing them.This causes us to repress these emotions and causes us to ignore others who are experiencing them simply because we don’t deal with negative emotions.
We inflict harm on ourselves and others in doing this that causes deep psychological wounds and changes in behavior. We shift our identity into a delusional state to repress the guilt we feel for ignoring one in need by saying they are being negative. We ignore the pain being expressed and ignore the issue needing to be addressed.
We create ticking time bombs out of ourselves and other people by insisting that sadness and pain are negative. It creates a view that says its wrong to feel that way so suck it up buttercup or worse yet encourages us to engage in creating a delusions to avoid acknowledgement.
Spiritually speaking anything that harms you emotionally harms your soul. I’m a soul mechanic by birth and I engage directly with the soul. I have also taken the journey within my soul to heal wounds of the past and work diligently as life happens to deal with things head on in honesty to resolve the issues so the sadness, anger, whatever goes away. Any prayers or what not I do for guidance is my spirituality and you have yours and I am not asking about it. Do what works for you in this area.
What we say and the words we choose shapes our view and creates the shared reality we all live in. In one of my current projects The Book of Khaos Majick I say.
It is a shared reality and one is responsible for ones reality and the reality of all ones.
We create that reality with the metaphors we attach to the words we use.
We create the views for others as much as we create our own view.
There are no catch all general rules to emotion. There is evaluating the situation that created the emotional response and determine if one is overreacting or if one is experiencing a valid emotional state based on the life one is experiencing in the moment.
The easiest way to know if your emotional state is valid is to ask yourself this question.
If someone told me this story what would I say?
I usually find in this exercise that I take the time to get a bigger picture view and that view will tell me every time whether or not I am having a natural reaction to the experience or I am being a whiny little baby or as an Empath I have taken on the emotion of another as my own. .
A negative is a loss and the only loss that we truly experience is the loss of growth and learning when we ignore our emotions or other people because we use words such as Negative to describe the emotion and therefor the person.
We are emotional creatures and our emotions build our identity.
To negate the emotional state is to negate the being in that state.
That includes yourself.
