Emotional Guidance Scale [How it Works]

Spiral Stairs The Emotion Guidance Scale

Esther and Jerry Hicks (or if you prefer Abraham) invented the emotional guidance scale to help people to feel better and to raise their vibration, gradually. On the surface, it may not appear this is related to the law of attraction. But it certainly is.  To create and attract what you desire you need to be at a high vibration.

There is an old saying that sounds something like this: If you want to learn something new, you first need to forget something old. That’s why you need to learn again what emotions are. 

Emotions are conversations between you and your non-physical, between you and your soul. They provide you instant feedback on the vibration of your thoughts. This is crucial when it comes to attracting the things you desire.

What is The Emotional Guidance Scale?

In their book, Ask and It is Given. Abraham- Hicks explains the scale as the following:

It is a scale of our feelings and emotions, in sequence from our highest vibrational feelings to our lowest.

They went on to mention the role of your emotions and the non-physical play. Because without the non-physical, we wouldn’t feel emotions.

“When we came to this world, our non-physical told us: Feel free to go there. You are stepping into the contrast. You are going into something that you may not like, you are going into something that will cause you to have desires and wishes. I will expand, and to you, I will send the guidance, with the help of the emotions.” 

What does all that mean? It means that you need to ‘go with the flow.’ It says that if you feel the emotions of high vibration. You feel right about something- your non-physical tells you that you are on the right path. If you feel the emotions of low vibration. You feel wrong about something- your non-physical tells you that you have to change something. 

A good comparison to this is the game ‘Hot and Cold’ you might have played as a child. Whenever you feel the emotion of low vibration, try to imagine your non-physical saying: “Cold, you’re not in the right place! You are moving away from the thing that you’ve created “And whenever you feel the emotion of high vibration, that’s your non-physical telling you “Warm, you are in the right place, you are getting closer to your creation! ” 

Emotional Guidance Scale

On this scale, we have the emotions of high vibration and low vibration. 

Emotions of high vibration

1. Joy, love, freedom, empowered, appreciation

2. Passion

3. Enthusiasm, happiness, eagerness

4. Belief and positive expectations

5. Optimism

6. Hopefulness

7. Contentment

Emotions of low vibration

8. Boredom

9. Pessimism

10. Frustration, irritation, impatience

11. Overwhelm

12. Disappointment

13. Doubt

14. Worry

15. Blame

16. Discouragement

17. Anger

18. Revenge

19. Hatred, rage

20. Jealousy

21. Insecurity, guilt, unworthiness

22. Fear, grief, depression, despair, powerlessness

As you can see some of the emotions of low vibration include depression and powerlessness, fear, and greed.

Why may you wonder? Because greed comes from the belief that “there isn’t enough of something for everybody. ” That is far away from the truth because there is an abundance of everything in this world. It’s the same with envy and jealousy. The people who feel these emotions believe that for them, there is no love, there is no success, there is no welfare, etc. 

The emotions of high vibration include hopefulness, optimism or positive expectation, faith or belief, enthusiasm, passion, and the ones with the highest possible vibration are joy, love, empowered, gratitude, and freedom. 


How to Move Up the Emotional Guidance Scale

Now let’s observe the lowest vibration, which is powerlessness. And the highest vibration, which is freedom. If you want to raise your vibration on the scale, you should know one thing. It’s far simpler and more comfortable to travel through emotions gradually up the scale. Versus aiming for a quantum leap. 

For example, if you are feeling powerlessness. It would be easier to achieve a vibration that resonated at guilt or jealousy than trying to leap to the feeling of freedom or joy. Even though guilt and jealousy are still low vibrations. You must realize you’ve moved up on this scale. You are no longer on the lowest possible vibration. 

And from there it easier to get to revenge then anger. When you get angry, or when you get the desire for revenge, how can that be a positive thing? It’s pretty simple when comparing them with the emotion of powerlessness, it is a positive thing because when you are angry or you feel the desire for revenge, that means that you think that you have some kind of power now. 

And that’s why these emotions are placed higher on this scale. They still are the emotions of low vibration, but if you’ve got there from the “bottom, “that means that you are rising on the scale and that you can move higher. It’s just a matter of time. After that, if you feel the emotion of disappointment, that’s an improvement, too. That’s good because you are no longer powerlessness. You are no longer angry or desire revenge or hate or feel discouraged or worry anymore.

All of this means that you are raising your vibration on the scale. Wow, how much you went up! From disappointment, you can move to hope. Optimism. And so on, and so on. 

Whenever you feel emotions like sorrow, anger, sadness, the desire for revenge, hate, pessimism, your non-physical is tells you this is not your path. Not those thoughts. Move your focus. That belief doesn’t serve you in a good way.

When you understand that, then you can start changing your beliefs and focus. With that, then you start moving up on the emotional guidance scale. You are doing all of those things so you could raise your vibration. When you do raise your vibration, you are witnessing miracles, in this reality. 

To recap Abraham-Hick’s emotional guidance scale is a series of over 22 emotions and feelings.  The purpose of the scale is to help you raise your vibration of feeling bad to feeling better. No matter what you are currently experiencing.  Simply, find what you feeling on the scale, and create thoughts that will gradually move you up the scale. Until you ideally arrive at joy/freedom.

Below is a picture of the scale you can easily save for later use.
