You have within you a vibrational meter that tells you what is good and what is not good for you. That meter is your emotions...
Several years ago, I felt totally stuck. I was considering a business opportunity that seemed like an ideal situation for me and promised to be very lucrative as well. However, I had hit burnout several times during the course of my association with this business and I had to admit that something did not feel right about the whole thing. I could not put my finger on exactly what it was, I just knew it did not feel right.
I decided to take a couple of weeks off from communicating with the parties involved, believing that if I had some space, I would find the answer that I needed, in order to know how to proceed. But at the end of two weeks, I felt just as confused as I had been earlier, and did not know whether to proceed with a partnership or pull out partially or pull out entirely.
I took a drive north and ended up in Sedona, Arizona. Whenever I have gone to Sedona in the past, I have been able to relax, meditate, clear my head and find answers. After two days and nights, I still was just a confused and had no clear idea of what to do. I was trying so hard to figure everything out with my mind and my rational mind was not helping at all.
Finally, in desperation, in the middle of the night, I wrote: "I need a new framework; a completely new way of looking at my life and making decisions." The next morning, I played a video a friend had sent to me. Though the sound quality was poor, I heard something that has become my new framework:
You have within you a God-given vibrational meter that tells you what is good for you and what is not good for you. That vibrational meter is your emotions. If something feels good, then it is good for you. If something does not feel good, then it isn't. Having said that, I am by no means saying that I lead with my emotions in everything. I am stating that when I am faced with a decision that has me feeling as if I do not have a clue of what to do, I have a God-given vibrational meter that serves as my guide.
I knew immediately that this business proposal and partnership was NOT good for me because I did not feel entirely good about it. I felt tension in my neck and back at the mere thought of the project. In fact, I was making myself sick trying to make it feel right when it was not.
What a relief it was to have this new framework from which to make decisions. I had clarity and peace about not proceeding with this business partnership AND with that, I wrote out a list of characteristics that I WANT in any business partnership.
Along the journey, I have met business partners who were an absolutely perfect match to that want list and those who were not. With the realization of this vibrational meter, you never need to make decisions with your mind. God gave you everything you need inside of you.
You never need to rationalize or justify your decisions. You simply need to recognize "that doesn't feel good" and "that feels good" and "that feels great!" to know what is right for you.
