We have found that often many New Age spiritual teachers describe emotions and feelings, such as fear, anger, sadness, and impatience, as being “negative emotions”. We can understand that labeling because often these emotions are challenging, uncomfortable, and difficult to process. The danger in labeling, perfectly human experiences, as “negative”, is that there will be people who will feel that maybe they are not “evolved” enough, or not “spiritual” enough, because they are experiencing them. We don’t believe this is true at all. Often, we have shared conversations with each other about this very thing. Though we know that we are souls, having human experiences; we are having this experience for a reason and a purpose. As long as we are in these bodies on this planet, we will feel fear, anger, frustration, sadness, and grief. The key to a spiritual path, is that it should help us to first recognize what we are feeling, accept the reality of the feeling, and then ask it, “what are you here to teach me?”
