In their book Ask And It Is Given, Esther and Jerry Hicks strongly encourage using your emotions consciously as a guiding tool for your actions. That is, if you put yourself into a positive state, then you can manifest your destiny via the Law of Attraction.
It is not usually possible, however, to make a sustained jump across several emotions at once. That is, you could make a temporary jump from overwhelment to contentment during a 2-week trip to Mount Kilimanjaro, but once you come back, the overwhelment will rear its ugly head again.
First, identify which emotions you’re consistently in. Then, use positive thought manipulation to move up the scale, one emotion at a time. For more details on doing this, read any of the Abraham-Hicks books.
It’s an interesting concept to have emotions laid out and ranked, but worth trying out. What I find the most useful is to be aware of your emotions. It is through awareness that we regain control of them and move towards more positive states.
