The Manifesting Power of Relief
by Stingray

Feeling the sensation of Relief is so fundamental to moving your vibration in the direction of manifesting what you want.

But Relief itself is not, strictly speaking, an emotion.

But that’s not just because it’s not on Abraham’s Emotional Guidance Scale.

Emotional scale

For example, Delight is not on the Emotional Guidance Scale (above) but I would still call it an emotion.

Abraham’s scale is really a broad selection of names for various emotions - it is not intended to be a complete description of all of them because that would be virtually impossible to do.

Emotions themselves have no direct connection to the words we use to describe them. What one person calls Joy, another might legitimately label as Ecstasy.

So, rather than get embroiled in the triviality of which word maps best to which emotion, Abraham merely use broad classifications and it’s up to the individual to decide roughly where on the scale they are.

So where does Relief fit in then?

Even though one might say that you can feel relief therefore it must be an emotion (because you can feel it), I would say in return that it is not as simple as that.

This is because you can feel relief at any point on the scale.

For example, if you are in Anger (#17), you can feel relief and move up to Discouragement (#16). But equally, if you are in Hopefulness (#6) you can also feel relief and move up to Optimism (#5).

In my view then, Relief is actually more like a process rather than an emotion .

You apply the process of feeling Relief to a particular emotion to move it to a better-feeling place.

So, in the examples given above…

  • Anger + Relief = Discouragement (or higher)
  • Hopefulness + Relief = Optimism (or higher)

Because of this quality of Relief always improving an emotional state, I always use it as my guideline in molding emotions.

So, to illustrate, let’s say I’m feeling in Doubt (#13) about a particular topic. Rather than hunt around on the Emotional Guidance Scale looking at better-feeling emotions to aim for (like Disappointment, Overwhelment, Frustration etc), I simply check to see if I am feeling Relief instead.

If I am feeling Relief, I know I’m moving in the right direction emotionally regardless of whatever language labels I may choose to apply to different emotions.

So, in this sense, Relief is a useful shortcut to molding emotions into better-feeling places.

In other words, you can be sure that whatever manifesting method you use is working fine as long as it keeps causing you to feel Relief on the subject you are trying to align yourself with.
