Abraham teaches that when our minds think one thing and our emotions seem to differ there is no alignment to getting what we want. Bringing these levels into balance then allows for the manifestation of our desires and the universal flow of creative energy responds. Checking your emotions on an idea is a quick way to feel if something you want is really what you want. If emotionally you feel negative feelings on an idea then its not likely to manifest the way you think you want it.
“The emotion you feel is always about the vibrational variance between where you want to be and where you are. If you’re out of balance, there are only two ways to bring yourself into alignment: Either raise your expectation to match your desire—or lower your desire to match your expectation.”
