Emotional Guidance Scale - Abraham

Updated: Jul 17, 2023

Abraham (Esther Hicks) often refers to the Emotional Guidance Scale as a useful tool for working out where you sit roughly in the total emotional scale.

This is important as it helps you realise if you have made progress or gone backwards in how you are feeling, on any particular subject.

Your goal should always be to move up the scale, as your emotions improve and raise, your resistance reduces. And as a consequence of your reduced resistance, your life begins to improve, in amazing ways.

"know that on every subject (love, money, health, career etc...) you sit in a different place in the scale"

Its important to know that on every subject (love, money, health, career etc) you sit in a different place in the scale. So while you may be optimistic about your relationship, you could be depressed about your job prospects. And consequently how you feel about every subject in your life affects your ability to succeed in that subject.

Here is the list of emotions in order.

Emotional Guidance Scale

1. Joy/Appreciation/Empowered/Freedom/Love

2. Passion

3. Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness

4. Positive Expectation/Belief

5. Optimism

8. Boredom

9. Pessimism

10. Frustration/Irritation/Impatience

If you'd like to know more about how to go up the scale and improve your emotional state, let me know and i'll write a detailed article about it.

Where do you sit on the scale, with regards to each subject in your life? Have you used this scale before?
