Key #4 in the 7 Keys to Self-empowerment is honoring the emotional body. This is the state of inner wisdom that the body is constantly seeking. It is not only about letting go of negative energy and negative emotions, but rather about letting go of everything, especially the need to do something, that stands in the way of expressing unconditional love.

Letting go is the medicine for when we are in a no-win situation. Oftentimes our best choice is to simply let go to let God, and to give ourselves an opening to be cleansed and to allow what wants to unfold to happen through us.

  • The 1st tonality to honoring the emotional body is letting go.
  • This 2nd tonality is where we really do the hardcore work of releasing emotional attachments and emotional habits that are no longer serving self or spirit.
  • The 3rd tonality is desire – following our true desires, doing what we really want and putting our energy into the actions that will get us there. Are you willing to pray for it? Are you willing to go for it?
  • The 4th tonality of honoring the emotional body is love—personal love, heart love, conditional love. It’s self-oriented. Do we have enough self-love to do what we desire? This kind of love wants to give, but it also wants something in return.
  • The 5th tonality is inner faith- which is where we show the courage to act in accordance with spirit, with our mind, with our body, without cutting ourselves off from any one part, but rather being open to utilizing the wholeness of our being to generate even greater faith.
  • The 6th tonality I call renewing radiance, renewing your light. Oftentimes when we get great news or have success we end up getting lazy and going towards failure instead of further accomplishment. Renewing radiance is taking the ball and running with it.
  • The 7th tonality of honoring the emotional body is called agape, unconditional love. This is the love that gives for the sake of giving and cares not to receive back – you just love.

The primary brain center of the emotional system is the limbic system, the hypothalamus, amygdala, hippocampus and so forth, the part of the brain that process emotions.

There are many issues within the emotional body but the core issue is being overly attached to the past and holding too many expectations about the future—not being in the present moment. This is commonly known as PTSD – Present Time Synchronization Disorder.

The core negative body pattern of the 4th Key is “the splits”- splitting headache, split mind, schizophrenia, feeling cutoff and divided. Love is, of course, the solution. But how can we be in touch with love if we’re not in touch with our true desires? And how can we be in touch with our true desires if we’re blocked by emotional attachments that we haven’t released? How can we even think about releasing attachments and emotional habits if we’re not in the mode of letting go?

The healing law that correlates to honoring the emotional body is the Law of Therapeutic Inactivity, what the Chinese call wu-wei, the cultivation of a state of being in which our actions are quite effortlessly in alignment with the ebb and flow of the elemental cycles of the natural world. It doesn’t mean do nothing, it just means don’t be attached to having a plan or to having an agenda.
