hapter Three:
How Do Emotions Affect Your Life?
"Practice perseverance for a while. You may be quite surprised at your successes."

"Being attentive to self is not total selfishness. Self-respect is the ultimate emotional goal in life."

As mentioned in the opening chapter, mankind has been blessed with the ability to act upon his feelings. All feelings are called emotions. Emotions control every facet of our life, including; decision making, objective and subjective thinking; creativity, but just as paramount our interactions with other individuals.
All interactions affect us immensely. Every second of the day we all experience a combination of emotions; both positive and negative. The emotions we experience can be of our own doing or can result from manipulation by others.
Although we human beings should be in a position to control our personal emotions there are times when that is not the case. One of the causes is because we are subject to subliminal thought suggestions and verbal barrages from external forces. External forces are the result of our personal daily interactions with others.
Each day we communicate with others at multiple levels of conversation. Some levels of conversation take place at a conscious level or actual verbal communication with others, while unbeknownst by some, the majority of these conversations take place solely through thought between two humans.
How many times have we started our day feeling rejuvenated, happy and excited about the possibilities, yet by the end of the day, although there have not been any personal conflicts, we find ourselves totally drained, feeling virtually every negative emotion possible? Without realizing it we have been subjected to the negative emotions of others.
Negative emotions can be passed to us by listening to the problems of another or just being in the presence of those who are experiencing personal traumas. External emotions are picked up by our subconscious minds and are stored for future reference, yet if we are not aware of this fact we may feel the emotional disturbances are our own making.
A number of research projects into the workings of the mind are presently being carried on at various universities and research centers. They are looking into exactly how mankind is contaminated by others. Specifically, educational classes are being conducted worldwide to prove once and for all that all thought is measurable and that thought is the basis to all forms of reality. Not only are respected researchers and academics trying to prove conclusively how susceptible we are to subliminal data, but they are also compiling data on how to be aware when this thought data is being transferred.
The idea of transference has been known for some time. Psychologists and psychiatrists have recognized during counselling sessions some patients will unknowingly pick up the thoughts and feelings such as affection of the counsellor. As the patient feels the thought transferences emanating from the counsellor, the patients perceive thoughts which do not exist. The difficulty that the patient experiences as thought transferences occur is that normally the patient is not aware that their emotions are involved or exactly which emotions are governing their feelings at the exact moment in time when the thought transference takes place.
Bringing the idea of thought transference a step further; it is readily known subliminal messages have been used in advertising methods for quite some time. Although some messages are audio (can be heard) and in some instances are visual (can be seen), another form of a subliminal message is through the subconscious mind which has the ability to project thought wave-lengths with no limitations to time or distance. What we think and picture in the privacy of our own minds is not as private as we may wish to think.
Two of the most publicized individuals utilizing mental communication transfer imagery and sound are the entertainment mentalists, Kreskin and Reveen. Both Kreskin and Reveen have perfected their ability to such an extent that they can subliminally change the reality of their subjects to entertain their audiences. Reveen calls this process post-hypnotic suggestion, while Kreskin bluntly calls his technique mind-reading.
Both Kreskin and Reeven are correct. The ability to read another's mind has existed for centuries. Rasputin, Catherine the Great, of Russia, sole psychic advisor, was noted for his ability to read the future and to mesmerize his victims. Mesmer, the pioneer of hypnosis could not thoroughly explain his discovery of memorization. Post-hypnotic suggestions which were later discovered by modern day psychiatrists are solely a form of subliminal interjection of thought.
Although thought transference may be endlessly debated, we all must realize it does exist and know that thought, image and feeling transferences are possible. It is to our advantage to come to a conclusion of how and why the thought, image and feeling transferences take place and then be able to protect ourselves from these interferences. New data is being published daily explaining the thought transference process, but most researchers still believe that subjects cannot be made to do something which they do not wish to do. This is a fallacy. It has been concluded that indeed we can be made to do things through thought transference which we would not normally consider. Over the last few years, defense attorneys have used thought transference as a means of defending their clients charged with murder offences and have been quite successful. A recent criminal case involved a young man who supposedly had listened to a heavy-metal musical group who advocated killing a police officer in one of their songs. After he had repeatedly listened to the song, he, under the influence of the groups message, shot a police officer. The jury acquitted the young man because they concluded that he was influenced by the groups music. It was ruled that the message was a "psychic bombardment" intentionally hidden in the music.
Accepting the fact that we are subject to psychic bombardment, the next stage is to learn how to stop all negative information from entering our life.
In the next chapter we will receive an overview of the precise emotions to which we are subject to in life. Remember not all emotions which affect our life are inflicted from outside sources. A majority of the time we inflict emotions on ourselves which control and govern our life. It is said that we seek problems to obtain the gifts they have for us. To the aforementioned it should be added, "Yes, it is necessary to seek out and deal with problems, but only problems of our own making". Yet the moral to seeking out problems so that we may be taught a lesson is that we should remember that although we all are forced to deal with other people's problems daily, other people's problems may have nothing to do with our beliefs or life-styles.
Sometimes another's problem will give us the opportunity to experience the atmosphere of the problem first-hand without actually having to partake in the actual experience. Being forced to comment on another's problem or making a decision for the other person about their external problems will not bear the fruits we expect. The lessons of life eventually may not be as trivial to us as we may believe. In some instances another's problems may not be as clear or as defined as they may suspect. In a lot of cases the problem will usually revolve around their personal negative experiences and very rarely their positive ones. Another perspective or point of view from another outside the realm of the problem sometimes may rectify the problem or sometimes may give insight to the person having the problem. The insight can then be utilized by the one experiencing the problem and then give the problem solver astuteness to solve a potential similar personal problem at a later date. The difficulty with interfering in another's life is that the person who is trying to help will ultimately retain the negative feelings of the one who was helped.
None the less some of us are still not perfect creatures of the universe and therefore we have a tendency to slip into negative states of emotions and create problems for ourselves and potentially for others. The possible reason for negative occurrences happening may be that in a majority of cases some of us are not aware of the emotions we are experiencing at the time of either our personal disruptions or another's indecisions.
Remedying negative imperfections in ourselves is not too great a task as long as we learn to admit what the pitfalls of interfering in another's life are and try honestly to correct this imperfection. Honesty in emotions is the prime requirement to offset the problem of being imperfect. As every good general knows, discerning when to retreat is of vital importance. Retreating is not defeat, but is a means of regrouping our forces to fight another day, or in the context of all the enclosed learning material, making a decision which assuredly is a corrective measure.
It has been said, "Placing our own emotions above those of others is selfishness." Yet when some of us find ourselves struggling to make a decision we intuitively reach a point where our personal feelings or emotions come first. Most certainly believing our feelings and emotions come first is not selfishness but survival; survival of the fittest, mentally and spiritually; moreover intuitively.
Those who refuse to admit subliminal messages occur are normally the ones who employ the thought transference process the most. Subliminal message perusers believe they have power over others and in some cases they actually do until their prey realize they are being emotionally controlled and burst the controllers emotional bubble. No controller likes to have their bubble burst especially when they are receiving the attention of others through psychological traps they have set for their overly protective emotional slave.
Recognizing the existence of those who are psychological piranha can prevent us from being manipulated, taken advantage of or controlled. The psychological piranha are not hard to find or see through. They are the ones who enjoy relating all of their problems to all of those around them. Needless to say if the story is good, some of us at times have a tendency to support the psychological piranha¹s position which assuredly is being forced upon us. Rarely do the majority of us substantiate a claim of remorse. Some find it easier to listen intently to the story because in the majority of cases we believe listening to negative circumstances may assist us in recognizing that our problems are not as bad as they may seem. Yet by listening to another's difficulties we are taking on the problems of others and eventually become emotionally subject to procrastination when handling our own personal problems.
The matrix of emotional manipulation and transference is the most common form of advanced personal negativity. In the next chapter we will learn to overcome the problem of not knowing how to remove ourselves from the influence of others.
Before continuing, let us take a few moments and try to list as many of the emotions, both positive and negative which we can. A simple hint to help one at the present time is to know that there are only twenty-one emotions. When the exercise was taught in past workshops, the average number of emotions that were listed by the participants very rarely totalled more than twelve. Once you have completed listing all the emotions you can think of, keep the list and in the next chapter you will be able to confirm those emotions you have listed and add the remainder omitted to your list.
