Emotional Body How to work with negative emotions What influences our emotions And much more
This episode is all about the emotional body from a spiritual perspective. We will talk about how the energetic body is created, where emotions come from, how to work with negative emotions, how to expand the range of emotions that you can experience. Mariya's higher self will tell you about the shape of the emotional body, how to work with it, the role it plays in our lives. We will talk about the shadow side that humanity is experiencing from an emotional standpoint. We will also give you a couple of very potent practices that will help you to take care of your emotional body and deal with negative emotions.
Sergei: Today, I would like to talk to you about the emotional body. Can you please tell me what is emotional body?
Mariya: Sure. The emotional body is one of the five bodies that a human in third-dimensional space would have access to and would be comprised of. Is there anything in particular that you wanted to know about it?
Sergei: Yeah. Maybe its role, the role it plays in people's lives.
Mariya: So, the emotional body, as is pretty obvious from the name, is the place where your feelings and emotions are housed, where they live. Your emotional body, in essence, is the body that allows you to perceive this world, as well as respond to this world and everything that you're seeing in it, all the circumstances, events, and people. It is also your internal guidance system or your internal compass. So, it serves multiple purposes, but one purpose that perhaps is less explored by humanity is the emotional body as your internal guidance system, so it's like your navigation. And if you know how to work it, if you know how it works, you would be able to always point to your True North, always be on the path, or know and be aware as soon as you are off the path, as far as the incarnation is concerned, as far as your intention for when you incarnated and were placed in a particular body. All of that is the emotional body.
It is also a collection, if you will, of all the feelings and emotions that you have inherited or chose to inherit from your ancestors, as well as the emotions from your past lives that were very strong emotions. Obviously, we don't carry everything over from our past lives, because when you die, your emotional and mental bodies, as well as your physical and your energetic, they disintegrate. But there are aspects that a soul holds on to, aspects of the emotional mental bodies that a soul would transport from one incarnation to the other. That is roughly what it is in a nutshell. But ultimately, it is a body that allows you to perceive the world and everything that is.
It is also the body that governs your relationship and understanding of other people, as well as individuals and groups of people. So, people with very well-defined emotional bodies are very comfortable in bigger crowds, or if they're maybe not comfortable, but they're able to perceive the energy of a mass of people, as well as they're able to connect individually very well on an emotional level, be able to empathize and understand where the other is coming from. You, in your realm, have a term emotional intelligence or EQ, which basically denotes people who are in tune with perhaps their emotions and the emotions of people around them. What that means is their emotional bodies are actually very well developed, and they have a wide range of emotions that they themselves possess and recognize in others, so it makes it very easy for them to relate.
Emotional body is something that you develop over time, through the various experiences that you have across multiple incarnations. And then, developed emotional bodies have a full range of emotions that range from what you would perceive to be negative, such as grief and apathy, potentially, down to the very positive, such as joy and euphoria, and everything in between. People with less developed emotional bodies would tend to have a more limited range of emotion, so they might not go up as high or down as low. There's a lot that could be said about the emotional body. It really depends on which way you want to go.
Sergei: Yeah. If we could maybe have a list of 10 main functions of the emotional body. You already said that it's navigation, and how you communicate with people. For me, navigation in the world is something new. I've never heard about this one.
Mariya: I see what you mean. Maybe let me dive deeper into that concept. So, a lot of you spend your life trying to get to a particular emotional state. It is almost like the unobtainable.
Sergei: It seems like everybody's trying to achieve happiness.
Mariya: Absolutely. That's exactly where I was going. You guys define it as happiness. Nobody really, truly knows what it means, but you spend your whole lives trying to be more happy and less unhappy. So, you are on a pursuit of happiness, and there's no magic pill that tells you exactly how to get there. There are some people that feel naturally happier, and then there are some people that have acute states of depression, which is the absolute opposite of where they're trying to be. But you could say that your lives are all serving this one god which is, "I'm trying to get to the happy state."
Your emotions are, at any given point in time, because it is your navigation, it's like your internal dashboard like if you were driving in a car. Your emotions are measuring your speed. They're measuring how much fuel you have left, that whole dashboard, really, your navigation system as well as the map. When you come into the body, you know what your intention is for that incarnation, and then you forget, of course. Because prior to coming into the body and the veil of forgetfulness descending upon you, you know exactly what you intend to accomplish. You know exactly the kinds of experiences you strive to have. You know exactly what kind of relationships you want to have or not want to have. So, it's a very scripted and very well-guided type of experience. So, truly, what your emotions are there to tell you at any given point in time, because this dimension is designed to forget everything completely, they are that navigation that would tell you at any given point in time, "Are you pointing to your True North? Are you on the path or off the path?"
So, if you tend to be feeling very upbeat and joyful, and generally good, I guess, more often than not, that is generally a signifier and a sign that you are on the path. Now, you might still be going through struggle, you might still be going through tough times, and yet be happy. For instance, you see a lot of families that are poor, for instance, but they experience high levels of happiness. And then sometimes you have people that are very rich, and they're super unhappy. So, there are certain things that you and society are taught to equate to happiness.
So, there is a myth, for instance, that money makes you happy, or fame makes you happy. And there are a bunch of other things like hitting certain milestones should make you happy in life, like getting married at a certain age, staying married instead of divorcing should make you happy, having children, etc. However, because each soul coming into this incarnation has a very different purpose, some souls are actually never meant to marry. They never intended that. They never intended to have children. Some souls never intended to get famous or never intended to get rich. They've actually intended to live a life of poverty, for instance, because that was the greatest learning for them. Whatever they intended for themselves, being on that track is actually going to make you feel happier, better, and more fulfilled than being off the path.
Sergei: Makes sense.
Mariya: So, what your emotions are there to do is show you where you are in relation to your own intention or the intention of your higher self. If you're off the path, there is very little you can do to feel better constantly, other than getting on the path. However, and that is where we're going to dive into, what the problem is or one of the problems with this dimension is, of course, people don't know that their emotions is a guidance system. So, what that means is they spend their whole lives trying to avoid their emotions. That's why they created antidepressants. That's why they created drugs. That's why they created alcohol, even nicotine. All of that is an avoidance system to try to not stay without emotion, to try to fool yourself that you're not feeling that emotion.
So, it is a system of looking at your navigation dashboard or your map that shows you that you are not where you need to be in life, and silencing every notification that you're getting, and pretending that you never got the message, never received the message. Instead of, finally, getting the message, diving into that feeling and course-correcting. Because your emotions are there to help you course-correct in the right way. That is precisely what that guidance system is trying to get you to do.
Now, you also have people super frustrating. You have those people that don't know what it is that they want in life. You have two camps. The ones that have this idea, at least, of what they think they want in life like, "I want to be a doctor," or, "I want to have six children," or what have you. That ultimately might not make them happy, [Laughs] because it could be a false idea that they adopted from society and not something that they truly, really wanted as their higher self.
Sergei: Or from parents.
Mariya: Yeah, society or familial, and just all of that. Yeah. We can dive deeper into that, when we talk about emotional trauma that's been trapped in your emotional body. But basically, then you have people that don't know where to go, and this is like a very particular type of ailment, which is when your navigation system was broken a little bit. And the reason is broken, generally, it tends to be a self-imposed disease or self-imposed condition. We don't have to go as far as disease. It's generally what ends up happening for people that don't know what they want. It's a response to some kind of trauma, generally, from this particular incarnation, where they were experiencing an emotion that they didn't want to experience, generally in childhood. It can be a whole range of emotion from fear to abandonment, to not feeling enough, to betrayal. It can be so many different things.
Not feeling loved is a common one. But basically, they experience an emotion to such an extent that it overloads their emotional body. They're not able to handle it. They're not willing to feel it to the extent that it needs to be felt in the moment. So, it almost overheats their navigation system and breaks it a little bit. Because they're not willing to go to the depth of emotion, they single handedly and subconsciously limit their emotional range. Because they limit the emotional range, they might get stuck in a particular aspect of that emotional range. So, it's almost like you have a spectrum of 0 to 10, for instance, say that's the spectrum of all human emotion. But these people got stuck in a sector between six and seven, and that's the only thing they can experience.
Sergei: It’s because they suppressed it.
Mariya: Yes, because they suppressed the strong emotion, they didn't want to feel it, and so they got stuck in a sector that felt safe. So, what ends up happening for them is they course through life... Those tend to be the people that don't actually take a lot of risks. If you look at them, they're really trodding very carefully. What ends up happening is, emotionally, they're actually also quite "stable." Emotionally stable people are the scariest people, because what they don't realize is they get stuck in a particular range of emotions in a particular sector, and they have a blind spot towards everything else.
The reason I said it's dangerous is because they're so stuck and their navigation system is so broken, that they know that sector between six and seven doesn't make them happy, but they don't really know what's going to make them happy, because their navigation system is so broken by being so limited that they don't even know how to get out of there. So, they would never take big risks, and most likely, they will stay in that sector between six and seven. What, in fact, they should be doing is taking bold moves, learning new things, getting out of their comfort zone, etc. Yeah.
Sergei: What is the main reason that stops them? Is it fear?
Mariya: Well, it's a decision to never have to experience a negative strong emotion ever again.
Sergei: Is it like a fear to experience this emotion again?
Mariya: Yeah, yeah, yeah. So, they need to lock themselves up or lock themselves down within a particular safe emotional range. So, for instance, for those types of people, when I say between sector six and seven, what you might see is there are some people that get locked into the indifference spectrum. If you're in the indifference spectrum or close to the indifference spectrum, you don't have any highs, you don't have any lows. Some people would get locked up into the melancholy spectrum. They're slightly melancholic all the time and never truly, fully happy but not like fully unhappy there. Or another dangerous place to get locked down is a depression state, it's really hard to get out of. But the key to healing your emotions is allowing yourself to experience them fully, really diving deep.
And I think when you ask me, "What is the emotional body?" I think that, on an energetic level, a really, really good analogy would be to imagine a body of water, but imagine a sphere, like a sphere of water. Emotional body is very connected to the element of water, the energy of that element. So, when you start thinking and relating to your emotional body as a body of water, that is your personal body of water, that is everything that you are and your emotional truth, the truth of your perception of yourself and other people, and the circumstances and events, and your day-to-day lives, and all of your aspirations and dreams, you can start unlocking certain things about how to deal with that body that can be quite helpful.
So, a healthy emotional body, it's like calm waters, and at the same time, it has this little rainbowy type of feel to it that water does, meaning that water is not necessarily transparent. It actually contains all the colors of the rainbow, perhaps not their full on bright hues. If you're trying to imagine this right now, think on the road where the cars are driving, if there is the rain, sometimes the puddles get covered with this rainbowy type of coating. That's where oil is mixing with water, and it creates this optical illusion type of rainbowy effect. So, your healthy emotional body would look like water with that thin covering of oil on top of it, so meaning it would contain the full spectrum of the rainbow in it, but it is also a very free floating body, and it is a liquid state of water that we're looking for.
Emotional trauma would generally manifest itself as a condensed type of energy that is, I would probably describe it more as a frozen state. So, imagine there's a little icicle floating in your water or a little snowball, and it's covered with a particular frequency, be it green, or red, or black, or gray, or brown, or what have you. So, that is like an emotional cluster that you didn't work through, or it's basically a point that you would need to work through. It's that condensed point of energy that doesn't allow the free flow of energy, so it's like a clot, like a blood clot.
In 3D, most people's emotional bodies are actually a lot less liquid than you think, and there are a lot more either fully frozen, or they have a lot of these clots, almost to a point where you can barely see the liquid through. And that makes them truly stuck in certain emotional states and feeling like they cannot get out. Because the way that your emotional body is supposed to work is, like I said, being that navigation system, but only causing you temporary discomfort, so that you can adjust. So, the intention of that emotion that you're feeling is not to forever make you feel unhappy, but to temporarily make you feel uncomfortable enough that you need to make change.
Sergei: So, it's like pain in your physical body.
Mariya: It only manifests as pain in a physical body if it has been persistent enough. Emotions, because of the water quality, if you look at water, especially the natural bodies of water like rivers and ponds, more often than not, they're not stagnant. They're dynamic. They even say that you cannot enter the same water twice, or the same river, or whatever, because you're not the same you, and it's not the same river. The world has moved on. It's because the water structure is very dynamic. It's very flowy. It doesn't stay still.
So, if the emotional body is working properly, you're going to experience a gradual shift of emotions from one hour to the next. It's actually normal to experience fluctuations, not crazy fluctuations. You shouldn't be going from euphoria to exceptional grief within hours, unless something happened to enable that type of feeling. And generally, the waves and the range that you would be going on a daily basis, they're similar type emotions. But at the same time, it should be a free flowing state. The emotions should come easily and go easily, like water. Imagine the tide, in and out, in and out.
Sergei: But why would they change that often?
Mariya: Because that's the flow of water.
Sergei: So, it's okay if you feel bad.
Mariya: It's not okay if you feel bad. If you feel bad, you have to listen to your navigate... Well, let me take that back. There is no emotion that's not okay to feel. Every emotion is perfectly helpful to you. It's just every emotion that you get signifies whether you are at the moment on track or off track, by how it feels. Feels good, you're on track. It doesn't feel good, you're off track momentarily. The emotional body is actually responsible for what you guys call the law of attraction. I am what I attract, and I attract what I am. So, for instance, if you're attracting certain people, circumstances, and events is because they are vibrating on the frequency of your emotional body.
Very often, the way you would make friends and single out certain people in the crowd is because they have an emotional body that is a similar frequency to yours. If you tend to be a joyful person, you're much more likely to be friends with another joyful person, as opposed to with a person that's pessimistic. Much more likely, because light attracts light. And it is very much alive and present in your emotional body.
Bad emotions are not bad. [Laughs] In fact, bad emotions are amazing. How else would you know that you're off track? And that is precisely the problem, not recognizing that a bad emotion is a great gift, and suppressing it with substances and alcohol, and just suppressing it, not wanting to deal. Sometimes people suppress their emotions by distracting themselves. One easy way to distract yourself is beyond technology. Jump on that phone. Put on that Netflix show. You are starting to notice that very, very easily in social interactions, in bars, and in parties.
You see a lot of people on the phone. Why? They're trying to distract themselves from the emotions that they're feeling in the crowd. Being surrounded by a lot of people is stressful for a lot of people. The reason being is because they're not fully in tune with their emotional bodies. So, their navigation system is broken. So, they don't quite know which corner of the room they should go to, to meet the like-minded person. It's like being in the dark, driving in the dark. Without any science, you got I don’t know.
So, a lot of them keep poking around and not finding what they're looking for, not finding what would make them “happy.” So, one way to escape is to distract yourself. Because if you can distract yourself from feeling that emotion in the moment, that emotion is as good as gone. And it wasn't real in the first place. Like, “Look, it's gone. It wasn't real.” And that's how people are missing out on so much guidance to try to change your life and put it on track and on the correct course.
Sergei: I see. Are there any things that can affect your emotions from the outside?
Mariya: Well, of course.
Sergei: What are these things?
Mariya: In other words, the outside is the reason why you're feeling certain emotions.
Sergei: Interesting. Is it like the way of the universe showing you that you're off track?
Mariya: Kind of, yes.
Sergei: By using different things outside. Because I've heard that the moon can influence your emotions.
Mariya: Yeah, absolutely, and it does.
Sergei: Yeah. So, what role does it play in your positive and negative emotions? And if it's the moon that affects your emotions, can it mess up your navigation system?
Mariya: It does, every month.
Sergei: Can you please tell how and how you can recognize and be sure that this time, this is not your navigation system, this is the moon, for example, or something else?
Mariya: Okay. You've asked many questions all at once. So, let me try to maybe respond to them all in one go. The first question was, how you’re getting your emotions or where you’re getting your emotions? I think I could do a better job responding to that. The answer is multifaceted. It's not just one place where you're getting your emotions from.
We are born into an emotional body that is a construct of two things. Your past life emotions that your soul energy carried into that body, and the past drama of your ancestors, emotional trauma. Very often they say cancer runs in the family or hemophilia runs in the family, all of those “genetic diseases.” It’s not just DNA.
In fact, mostly, it’s emotions and belief systems that are causing that. So, a thing is stuck in the familial emotional body of the ancestors and the familial mental body of the ancestors. One responsible for the common emotion that your family's feeling, the other responsible for the common belief system your family subscribes to. Both can create a manifest disease in the physical body.
Sergei: Is it like when you burn, you already have these snowballs in your emotional body?
Mariya: Yes, absolutely.
Sergei: Or, is it like coordinate goals back to your ancestral line?
Mariya: It's a little bit of both. It's not a cord, really. You just inherit certain clots. When the body gets formed, the energy has to be borrowed from somewhere, from the earthly plane. So, it's borrowed from your ancestors when forming your emotional body, and it's also borrowed from your higher self, so from two places. So, the fuse of those energies would help co-create the emotional body. I'm trying to come up with a good example.
For instance, say that the emotion that runs in your families in a happy marriage, or rather than happy marriages, the circumstance, but what it creates is an emotion that your husband or wife doesn't understand you or doesn't love you, or they're just the wrong person for you. And you might actually marry… Then what you would see and that actually runs in the family, you either have a familial tree of “happy marriages,” or sometimes you have families where pretty much everybody is divorced, and you just don't have anybody living with their husband or wife till old age.
Part of the reason for that, there can be so many reasons, but one of the reasons could be an emotional trauma that that generational tree has. For instance, if you're a woman, you could always feel like, say, the mother and the grandma and the great grandma and then the daughter all feel very alone and on their own in the marriage, which leads them, for instance, to cheat, and look for that comfort elsewhere.
Then cheating, for instance, would create a loop of guilt. Guilt could be another emotional clot in their bodies. And so, it's like a self-fulfilling prophecy. It always first starts with feeling lonely, then it goes into cheating, the cheating creates the guilt. And then the guilt basically ruins the marriage, because he cannot normally relate anymore. And then sometimes you would just have those loops over and over again.
There are families, not very frequent, but where women tend to lose their husbands really early on in life. They tend to massively outlive their husbands. So, there are multiple energies that can manifest that. Being clingy and needy is one of the energies that would manifest the universe to take that away from you. So, you can finally learn to stand on your own two feet. That is one place that emotions come from, very important. That's why sometimes they just take over. Sometimes the emotion just takes you over.
If it runs multiple generations, it's very hard for you in the moment to be able to resist it. Because it's like the power of your emotion, emotion compounded 10,000 times, as many times as our generations, when that original clot or icicle was created. One, purely inherited. Two, emotions are often driven by thought. Thought forms. So, your mental body is vibrating at a certain frequency catching thoughts, so to say. A thought generally has a particular vibration that is equivalent to a particular feeling. So, by having a thought you could automatically have an emotion. For instance, the thought “I'm fat” cannot produce euphoria in a human. The thought I'm fat would generally produce a negative type emotion. The thought “I'm unloved” cannot produce a positive feeling in a human. Do you see what I mean? There is a link between a thought and an emotion on the other side.
Another way to get an emotion is respond to particular stimuli in the outside world. So, sometimes the thoughts that you get are seemingly not related to what's happening in the outside world. Like you might wake up. It might be a bright, beautiful day, super sunny. You just got your paycheck. Life is good. You still might feel like really down for no reason. So, that “no reason” is generally you're responding to a particular thought that just emerged in your head.
Sometimes it is a response to particular stimuli in your external environment. I don't know, you watch the news, you saw a car crash or an airplane crash, sends you on a very uncomfortable emotional loop that generally still starts with a thought, but if we were to look at the core cracks, and what does this whole loop originate, it would be a circumstance.
Sergei: How you watch a horror movie.
Mariya: Absolutely. Or you’ve had a conversation with your boss, where you got a negative review or something. It's an external circumstance that seemingly had nothing to do with you. Of course, we know everything always has to do with you and that you've attracted that, but it would create a particular feeling. By the way, [Laughs] if you're on your own personal track, I bet you, you wouldn't be attracting negative reviews from your boss that are sending you on a very unhappy loop.
Sergei: Got it. So, it's just the universe's way to remind you that you're off track.
Mariya: Yes. Now, going back to your original question, because you're like, what else influences your emotions? The planets absolutely do. And in fact, not just the planet, but when I said external circumstances, people and events. Nature could absolutely influence your mood, or the environment should I say, not nature. If you're in the city, you're more prone to feeling certain kinds of emotions.
Sergei: Oh, you know how they tell Mercury retrograde.
Mariya: Yes. Yeah, we're going to get to astrology in a second, but let's take it a step, maybe down, in terms of the micro level and macro for now. Cities, for instance, or clusters for all kinds of emotions. Cities, for instance, incentivize aggression. Not incentivize. Accentuate aggression, competitiveness. That idea of resources is limited. They can heighten stress. They can heighten the survival instincts. Of course, cities also have some positive aspects associated with them. For instance, the excitement tends to be high in cities.
Mariya: Yeah, that energy and drive and success, and sometimes even abundance, depending on how you think about abundance. There are multiple energies like emotional states that are... For instance, your emotions could be driven by your surroundings very much so, or, for instance, if you are in the mountains, generally people perceive feeling expansive. They feel like they can breathe easier. They don't feel as much pressure. They get perspective. It's all emotional states. So, we are influenced by large bodies of water, rock, any formations, minerals. So, you might be living, your house might be on top of…
Sergei: A swamp.
Mariya: It could be, right. Or deep in the earth. There could be a particular mineral, now that mineral would be impacting your mood, and you wouldn't even know. Mood equals emotions. Absolutely astrology. I mean, just because of how big the planets are compared to your personal body as a human, they have a lot more gravity and a lot more intention to them.
Every planet has a consciousness, in the same way that planet Earth has a consciousness. Every planet has a consciousness. Or if they don't truly have a consciousness, they have an energetic form, almost like an egregore, if it's an artificially created planet. Then even the planet is created artificially, sometimes you would have a walk-in of sorts, where there is a spirit that chooses to inherit that planet. So, that being said, every planet has its own emotional body.
Every planet has its own emotional range, and depending on the proximity of that planet to you, and also how your emotional body relates to the emotional body of that planet, it could either be your ally, or, I mean, I wouldn't want to call it your rival, but let's just say you're not the best of friends.
And yes, you mentioned Mercury retrograde. Mercury is definitely one of the planets that impacts our emotional body. The moon probably impacts our emotional body the most because it governs all the water movements on planet Earth, for better or worse. So, basically, the one thing that would tend to break your navigation system is the moon.
So, because the moon has states, we know it has a cycle of about 28 days, it has the new moon and the full moon spectrum. And you're supposed to feel very inspired and very hopeful when the moon is new, like new beginnings, new everything. And you're supposed to feel a heightened state of everything, all of your emotions are going to be at their highest when it's the full moon.
Generally, what comes out full circle from the full moon is not necessarily the most positive emotion. So, people tend to be irritable. People tend to be aggressive. People tend to instigate. Unfortunately, if you're in a marriage, and if you're considering cheating, that tends to happen on a full moon, murders tend to happen on a full moon, all kinds of crimes on the full moon. Quarrels, fights, full moon.
If you haven't noticed, that your own emotions whether you're a man or a woman, and I know that this planet, and in your world, the moon is considered to be a feminine planet, and emotions, in fact, actually are considered to be a very feminine thing. And intellect is very masculine. I will tell you that the moon governs emotions of both genders, no questions asked. And if you have not noticed that there is a correlation between the face of the moon, and how wild your emotions are, or how much they're trying to overtake your intellect, you haven't been paying attention. I strongly suggest that you do.
I guarantee you that if you were to keep an emotional diary and note the days when your emotions didn't feel characteristic of you... Say you're generally a very cool, calm, and collected person, and then sometimes you're just very irritable, and you want to start killing people, probably full moon. So, if you were to keep track, you'd probably be able to trace back the days that were too emotional and didn't feel like good to a certain phase of the moon.
Unfortunately, because the moon governs the emotions, it governs the emotions of all people on the planet, which means that at the same time, all of the navigations for all of the people are going to be broken in somewhat similar ways. So, for you, what you don't want to do is mistake those in-the-moment feelings that are governed by the moon for your true guidance system, because it is not one and the same.
Sergei: Yeah. How do you navigate given that you know this information?
Mariya: Well, the moon is strongest in its new state and its full moon. Strongest in terms of different types of strong. But let's just say it certainly impacts humanity the most in these two states, and generally it's three days for each, roughly. You can have these three-day periods for the new moon and the full moon. I wouldn't trust your emotions on those six days in a month. It's just like sometimes when the weather is really inopportune, and it's a storm and a tornado, you probably don't want to go driving and trying to navigate in that madness. I wouldn't recommend those six days for navigating. And for instance, during these six days, three and three, if you're feeling off, don't make life-changing decisions during those times. I don't want to get into how this world is controlled, but there is a reason why this game was designed in this way, and then there is a reason why it's rigged in certain ways. So, if you're looking for your True North, don't react to things like that affect the whole planet in making your own personal decisions with what's right for you.
Sergei: Is there a way you can calm down, like any practice during the full moon and the new moon, when you feel pain, or not pain, of course, but you feel bad, or negative emotions are overwhelming?
Sergei: You still have to go to work.
Mariya: Absolutely. Yeah. So, the thing is, every full moon cycle, for instance, is different. It could be a heightened emotion of a different frequency slightly. It's not that every full moon, you're going to feel aggressive. It could be one when you feel very aggressive. The other one when you just feel very emotionally sad. The next full moon, you might feel very inspired in a "my way or the highway" way. So, it would manifest very differently.
So, I would recommend for the full moon phase, when you're meditating, to first get really, really clear around what is the energy that is being transmitted from the moon to the earth? And basically, how does it make me feel? So, if you look at the water of your beautiful emotional body, the molecules in the water are going to organize themselves in a very particular way when influenced by the moon, especially the full moon.
Sometimes you might feel they're a little tense like that, that water is very tense, or sometimes it's actually very rigid. Or sometimes it's very impatient. You actually get a sense of what that water feels like. So, you want to take control of your emotional body by releasing that frequency, and if it's necessary, almost going down to the cell level of that water, and taking very deep breaths in and out, and letting go of all the tension. You want to get your water into the free floating state. Sometimes the water is frozen. Sometimes the way that the moon affects it is like it'll go into freeze mode. And that is that stress. You just feel tense and stressed, not a very healthy state at all. You want to get your water in the most free floating state.
Another thing that you want to watch with the moon, and in general with your emotions, is sometimes there's going to be a color that's dominating your waters. And when one color is dominating, it could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the color. But if it's a color that's not serving you, doesn't feel good that emotion, I recommend you actually cleanse your personal water stream with a rainbow energy. You want to get unstuck. The way you get unstuck is by having a torrent, like an incoming torrent, that is a much more healthy energy. Remember, for the emotional body, the rainbow is the most healthy state.
When it's too much of one color for a very, very long time, not the healthiest. That actually implies rigidity and the absence of flexibility. Water should always be flexible. Water should always be able to bend left to right, depending on the circumstances. Water should be able to take in any kind of external circumstance and transcend it and transmute it. Right?
Mariya: That is the true purpose of water is like, “Come what may, I'm water.” So, what you can do is you can pour a beautiful stream of rainbow water all over your emotional body. And with time, 10, 15 minutes later, you want to see that rainbow water displace the old water that was there. Now can you fully, fully fight the impact of the moon? No. And maybe you don't have to, it's just really understanding how the moon affects. It’s just the awareness itself, bringing the awareness into your consciousness.
Knowing that, what you might be feeling in that moment, is not necessarily coming from your internal guidance system, and just being patient with yourself during those moments, and being patient with others, because in the same way, you might not be having a good day, somebody else is not probably having their top day, either. And it's one of those two energies come together as one conflict arises. But if you come from a place of compassion, patience and understanding for yourself, your own emotional state, and that of the other being, most of the conflict can be avoided and dissolved.
Sergei: So, basically, emotions help us to navigate and understand whether we are on the path or not on the path.
Sergei: But also there are some objects or entities or whatever can influence your emotional state, and if it’s…
Mariya: Yeah, and people.
Sergei: And people, right. In order to navigate between all these different influences, for example, if it's a moon and you feel bad, all of a sudden you just have to check if it's a full moon, or a new moon. And be aware. Right?
Sergei: So, the key is to be aware?
Mariya: Well, the key is to be aware and understand that, because an emotion, especially an external emotion, is like a torrent. If you’re sitting on the seashore, you know that wave is going to come and then it's going to go. Just understanding that it's going to go, that it's temporary, and this too shall pass. And it's not necessarily a reflection of where you are in life. It’s that knowing would help you be with the emotion, as opposed to try and suppress and deny it.
Sergei: Got it. And I want to talk to you about these negative emotions that come from childhood. How do you work with them and especially if it's on the subconscious level? For people, it's really hard to dig in and find the reason. Are there any practices or any advice how you can work with negative emotions from childhood?
Mariya: Well, the only way to transcend a negative emotion is instead of avoiding it, going right through it, right into it, like diving deep. Because all emotional trauma is actually avoidance, or it results in avoidance. Like there is first a very, very strong emotion, and it gets compartmentalised into a clot and stored away for later. When it's stored away for later, what it can and will do very often is manifest on the physical, because a clot, by definition, is something that water cannot float freely through. And it's meant to.
Again, I'm going back to that premise that your emotional body is meant to be very fluid, very liquid, very accommodating. All of these clots are preventing that original state from being and happening. So, it is preventing the flow of energy in the way that was intended. So, it'll manifest in the physical body.
Sergei: Or maybe you could just give us an example. Let's say you have some kind of fear or worry, some strong, negative emotion. How would you overcome it or integrate it so it doesn't bother you anymore?
Mariya: I'm pretty sure you've heard of Parts Work, like when people are doing the healing, imagining that particular pain or that particular emotion is a part of themselves. The reason it feels like a part of yourself and not you is because you have compartmentalized that and stored it away, saying, “Actually, you're not me and I'm not you. And you're this completely separate being away from me. So, you're like this little sphere within a sphere, but I don't necessarily relate to you. Neither do I want to hear back from you.” In essence, you're creating a division within your own emotional body.
For you to turn that into unity, and again, unity feels like a water filled with a rainbow. Because the rainbow contains pretty much every color imaginable, the rainbow contains the negative as well as the positive. So the rainbow, for instance, has the red spectrum. And the red spectrum has the shadow side and the light side. The shadow side of the red spectrum is aggression and fear, actually.
So, when your emotion of fear is stuck in your body in a solid state, which is what a clot is, it's a solid state instead of a liquid state. That particular frequency of red, whether that's fear, or however, whatever emotion you decided to store, when you get faced with that emotion, one more time in your life, normally, it would flow freely, because there's no judgement in the emotional body. It'll accept fear just as well as it accepts fashion, whereas the normal flow would have been accepting that wave and then letting it go, and then it's gone, and it's gone. That's it. Emotion doesn't need to be stuck in your body. The correct way for it is to come and go. So, you've encapsulated it, that means you said actually, in essence, “Let me hold on to it.”
So, by you not wanting to deal with it, in fact, you choose to hold on to it. Next time, when there is external stimuli that's causing you fear ends up happening, that emotion gets trapped even more in your body, because it can flow in and out because you created a solid state. So, that particular frequency is in solid state in your body, instead of a liquid. So, every time there's an external circumstance, it's like a layer of cells that is added to the original clot, and another layer and another layer. The more you're faced with the same kind of emotion, it's just like a little entity that just keeps growing and growing and growing.
How do you deal with it? You would need to dive deep and think of every instance that made you feel... or ideally, you try to think of the very first instance, which might be complicated for some, because the first instance might have been familial 40 generations ago, or in your past life that you don't even know how to remember, it is okay. If you have a very big clot around fear, it probably has already manifested in this lifetime, guaranteed. If it's big enough, it would have and probably many times.
So, you want to go to an instance that created a very big emotion of fear in you. And you almost want to feel what that clot feels like in your body, what color it is, how heavy it is, and then literally dive inside. You would want to dive inside, into the solid structure, and one way to make something that's solid into a liquid.
In general with water, if you're trying to turn a solid like ice into a liquid state, you want to heat it up. So, you can start by diving into that emotion and allowing... Instead of running away and compartmentalizing it for later, just allowing it yourself to start feeling it, say, “You know what, it's okay. It's okay to feel that emotion. I probably came here to feel it. It doesn't mean I'm going to feel it forever. But at least now I'm going to expand my personal emotional range to include this emotion, instead of denying that I can have it, or denying the right for me to have it.”
From the space of within this emotion, feel how it's truly affecting you, go back to the incident where you really, really felt it deeply that negative emotion. And then you want to create like a little sun inside of the solid sphere, almost like the inner sun, and you want to allow that to warm the molecules inside of this emotion in a way that turns the solid water into liquid water. And what you would notice is that as you grow that inner sun, while being in this emotion, of being just present with it, not necessarily associating yourself with this emotion or disassociating yourself from this emotion, what you would notice is that once the sun grows enough and warms this clot enough, eventually, that outer membrane of the clot just breaks down, because all it is is water.
This spot that might have been red, because we're talking about fear, that spot just gets integrated into the rest of the body of water, by rejoining the rainbow. All of a sudden, that emotion is just part of your spectrum. And it is not your guardian, and is not your hostage. And it is not something that your life has to revolve around. It is something that you're comfortable with experiencing again. But you're not necessarily calling it into existence in your life by keeping it in the solid state. Because a solid state is a state of like, “Hey, pay attention to me. Hey, pay attention to me. Hey, I'm solid. I’m supposed to be liquid, can you pay attention to me?”
Literally, because it wants you to pay attention, it'll put and attract things in your life so that you pay attention, which means actually, before you fully dive into that emotion, you're going to keep going through that back to it, over and over and over again. And once you transcend it, you might never have to go back there ever.
Sergei: That's cool.
Mariya: By diving in, by facing it fully, by accepting it as a part of yourself, by stopping to blame yourself for even feeling that in the first place, or blaming a person or circumstance that made you feel that, you embrace all of it, as water would.
Sergei: And is there a way how you can expand the range of emotions that you experience? Because in many cases, like for me personally, because you mentioned that men don't experience as many emotions as women, that's belief, it's a wrong belief. And then how can you start experiencing new emotions?
Mariya: I didn't say the ban on experienced emotions. What I said is that in the society, we don't associate men with emotions, or you guys don't. In your society, it is “okay for women to be emotional, but not okay for men to be emotional.” It's okay for a girl to cry, but not okay for a guy to cry, etc. By the way, it's not to say that men don't experience a range of emotions, because they do. They were designed to. If men were not designed to experience emotions, they wouldn't have an emotional body.
Sergei: Do they experience the same range of emotions as women? Is there a difference between how men and women experience emotions?
Mariya: The answer is yes and no. The reason it is yes and no is because men are designed to experience the same range of emotional frequencies as women. There is not really much of a difference between the anatomy of the male emotional body versus the female emotional body. In fact, I couldn't tell the difference. However, when I said to you the answer is partially yes is, particularly for this planet, the answer is men experience way less emotions than women do. Because what is considered to be okay in the collective of humanity for men emotionally is very different from women. And so, the range of emotions for men and women on this planet is different, but it is not because your bodies are designed that way, it is more so a collective belief system of what is okay and not okay.
So, a lot of men would suppress certain kinds of emotions, emotions like, actually, empathy and sympathy. What you're able to see very often in business, men would act very decisive, and they would do certain things that a woman in a position of power wouldn't do, which is because actually, on this planet, it is okay for men to not experience empathy. It is a collective belief that a man does not need to be empathetic. They don't need to feel the pain of others. It's up to the women to do that.
At the same time, and thankfully that's being changed at the moment, is the range of emotions that some men are feeling on a day-to-day basis, a very hard to access by women, one of those emotions is empowerment. It's on this planetary scale, on this planetary level, the emotion of empowerment, feeling in control, and being able to make decisions that feel true to who you are, has been the prerogative for men over the years, and women just had to comply.
So, women actually, and men on this planet, are going through the expansion of that range of their emotional bodies. So, what's happening on this planet right now, actually, quite significantly for men, is their heart chakras are getting activated. A lot of men don't lead from the place of a heart, they lead from the place of solar plexus, from the yellow center, which is a very egotistical, individualistic leadership style. It is my way or the highway style. It is, “I'm going to act in my best interest,” even though it might not be in the best interest of you, or the planet, or they. It is me versus them mentality.
Sergei: So, it's not a win-win?
Mariya: Absolutely not. So, men are starting to level up and get access to the range of emotions that's available in the green center, which is not to say that men are incapable of love. I just want to say that, that love is at the moment being manifested to a very small nucleus of people, whereas a really well-functioning heart center is limitless. So, men actually, some men, got very good at loving their family in their own way. It's still a very suppressed way to love someone, but they're capable of that emotion. Let's just say that some of the aspects of the way men choose to love are the shadow aspects of the heart, which is actually the jealousy, the control, the “I said so,” and “it's in your best interest for you to do as I say” type of love. Whereas, the true higher dimensional love is complete freedom and complete acceptance. Am I answering your question?
Sergei: Yeah. Yeah.
Mariya: In other words, men are capable of just the same range of emotions as women. And on this planet, there is so much room to keep expanding the emotional body for both genders, so that they don't need to be stuck in one type of emotion.
Sergei: And let's say you are a person who wants to experience a wider range of emotions.
Sergei: And you've never experienced them. Where do you start? Like this empowerment, for example, for women?
Mariya: Yeah, I think that first, you would need to figure out what emotion you would want to explore, because I think that the journey, it can go from 0 to 100 in three seconds, because expanding an emotional range could take generations that will take thousands of years. The reason you've been asking this question makes me infer that you're actually seeking a particular kind of emotion, right?
Mariya: So, there's an animation in your body for a particular kind of emotion that you would like to experience more often, that you either believe is not okay for you personally to experience or wasn't okay for your ancestors -- men in your familial line to experience -- or maybe not acceptable or welcomed for masculinity on this planet experience. And it is just one particular type of emotion that’s speaking to you, in the same way that empowerment might speak to some women and might not speak to others.
By the way, I think that saying, like the emotional range for this planet for men and women, it's such an overgeneralization, because depending on your familial ancestry and your own personal history as a soul, your range could be very different from the planetary range. So, it is an individual journey, much more than it is as a collective journey. So, if you're going in the direction of an emotion that you would like to experience that is not part of your range, you would want to... You see, it's a little bit hard to give just one type of meditation for you, because depending on how intuitive you are, you might already have the answer, or you don't. So, each emotion actually has a color.
So, I could lead you, if you told me what emotion you're seeking, I could tell you what color it is. Basically, what you need to do is integrate that color in your rainbow. That's the exercise. So, you could do a little exercise, if you will, by looking at the colors of the rainbow and seeing which colors you have, and which you don't, which colors are more vibrant, which colors are less vibrant. And then what you would want to do is you would want to fill up the cup of the color that you're particularly missing, like empowerment is actually a red emotion. But it is a positive red. And it is the opposite of fear.
So, fear and empowerment are two sides of the same coin for women. Women experience fear every day. Every time there is an emotional streak, you either experience the face value of that emotion or the backward value of that emotion. If the frequency of empowerment versus fear, that axis, is missing or mismanaging your body, that means that you're not able to access empowerment, you're able to access fear. So, you would want to examine that two-sided coin, flip it and feel what empowerment feels like.
It's the same frequency of energy, only instead of being muddy with a gray tint, it's radiant with a white tint. Imagine, if it's a streak of red instead that's flowing into a vessel, instead of having red mixed with a black, it's red mixed with white. Does that make sense?
Sergei: Yeah. And that's emotionally how you want to differentiate the shadow, as opposed to from the light aspect. Ultimately, you need to see both. And I think in one of our past conversations, we've gone through the fact that to truly experience an emotion, it's easier to start with a shadow first, to get to the light side easier, faster, quicker, all of those. So, you want to basically get present to the fact what is the color of that emotion that you're looking to experience. And you want to imagine a source of all emotions as a sphere. And whatever emotions you don't have right now in your range, you can borrow from that source. And you want to just have the energy from that source freely float into your rainbow, giving you the color that you're missing, whether that's a particular shade of blue, green, or yellow, or any in between shade.
When I say a rainbow doesn't mean seven. Seven is just a very rudimentary way of looking at the rainbow. Because colors like magenta, colors like turquoise, aquamarine colors, like neon-yellow are part of the rainbow. But you wouldn't think of them as being part of the rainbow, because the rainbow is the full spectrum of all the colors. Is that helpful?
Sergei: Yeah, it is very helpful. Yeah. And so, you basically work with the colors and the negative aspect, because you probably experienced the negative one in this world, right?
Mariya: Yeah, probably. You could be, also, not experiencing any. It's possible. Sometimes you just don't go to a particular range, like if you're stuck in between six and seven, you're not experiencing two, whether it's the shadow aspect of two or the light aspect of two. You're just not experiencing two. Some people don't experience love or hate.
Sergei: What would you do in this case? If you don’t even know the shadow side, where do you start?
Mariya: Well, it's the same thing, like love or hate, it's the green energy. It's you just never experienced the green, whether from the black or from the white, and not never. It's just in this particular incarnation, perhaps you're missing it. So, you just want to understand what emotion, what color emotion we're talking about.
Sergei: And as soon as you know the color, what do you do next? Because let's say you've never experienced love, but you want to experience love, and you identify the color.
Mariya: Yeah, like I said, you start feeding that rainbow with green, where there was nothing. Now there's going to be a source of green energy that you can tap into, inside of your emotional body. And by the way, because your emotional body is communicating with your energetic body, it’s communicating with your physical body, because it's all the same matryoshka-like Russian doll concept, you can imagine, if, say, you're missing the green energy, your emotional body sending you an avalanche of green energy. Just like you would want to imagine that green energy flowing everywhere in your body, every vein covering every organ, just like it would allow that energy to penetrate your body and take it over.
Sergei: The key is to imagine because you've never experienced it. You just have to imagine.
Mariya: That's the first step. Because once that green streak is floating, what is going to happen is the external world is going to put people's circumstances and events in your way that would actually bring that feeling forth. First, the only work you need to do is to make that frequency available to be manifested in your world.
Sergei: I see now. Yeah. Now it makes sense.
Mariya: So, you make that part of your range. Because it's part of your range, eventually, it's going to get tested.
Sergei: The power of attraction.
Mariya: Yes, absolutely. It's not about faking the emotion at all. And you can't, to your point of view, if you’ve never experienced, how can you fake it?
Sergei: No, you can't.
Mariya: You couldn't. They couldn’t.
Sergei: Yeah. Got it. And if you look at the collective emotional body of men and women separately, what are the biggest shadows on earth for men and women?
Mariya: Control for men manifests as deep burgundy, so red with a lot of black in it, almost more black than anything, or brownish energy, that need to be in charge, which is the same thing as control, the suppression of everything that is not you, the inability and complete disinterest in the point of views and wishes and wants of others. There is a lot of lust, but not just in a sexual connotation for men, it is lusting after money and power and certain lifestyles. There's a lot of that that's connected to the material shadow. For men, like I said, they're working through, if you're familiar with the chakras, it's a red, orange and yellow spectrum. So, a lot of the shadows of men, masculinity on this planet are going to be connected to the shadows of those energy centers and those chakras.
Segrei: And what color does it have lost?
Mariya: Again, muddy lust is in the red spectrum. I experienced this as a lot of darkness. Power grabs again around control, numbness.
Sergei: Absence of emotions?
Mariya: Yeah, suppression of emotions, can do anything if I don't have to feel. I feel justified if I don't have to feel, whatever means it takes, so long as I get to that goal. But also powerlessness that actually manifests as a black bluish energy, where men feel like the circumstances are greater and they didn’t get to where they need to get, or they cannot provide, or it's just like no matter what I do, I can't make it happen. This is that powerlessness, apathy, where they stop fighting, stop doing anything like stagnation. Definitely a masculine shadow. On processed grief, men are not processing grief on this planet. All the uncried tears are black clouds.
Sergei: I see that.
Mariya: Yeah. Unexpressed love, where they were withholding love and approval very often like that. Again, this is all in the blue spectrum shadow, not expressing. Like when men are proud of their children, for instance, very often they would not express that. Neither do they prefer to express love. They think that I'm expressing love by buying new things, or I'm expressing love by providing for you, instead of spending quality time, instead of actually communicating how they're feeling. Should I keep going?
Sergei: Yeah, I mean, maybe one or two, and then we can switch to women?
Mariya: Sure. Let's see. I mean, there is another shadow around, like I said, denying their emotions in favor of their intellect. So, it's being a one-sign-sighted type human and thinking that that is actually what it's supposed to look like, like suppressing the heart, and everything that has to do with the heart’s energies. Not even wanting to go there, not appreciating those energies, not valuing them high enough, thinking of them as a weakness, as opposed to strength. And by that, through that, in general, men are very, very blocked on this planet, around experiencing true connection. So, they don't feel true connection, even to their closest women.
It is that connection aspect, is a little bit disbalanced. They're either given too much or taking too much. So, that connection part aspect hasn't really been figured out, even in the three-dimensional plane, let alone connection with higher aspects and higher realms, that is, before we can unlock that, and we have to unlock just the green heart chakra connection. Let's start there.
Another shadow is needing to be right. The shadow aspect of the yellow center is that live or die necessity to be right, and immense fear of being wrong, or failing or doing the wrong thing. So, a lot of pressure and pressure of expectations, because men are actually under a lot of pressure, because women have been put in a position for many, many centuries, and that's starting to change, in a position of not being able to provide for themselves. And so, that pressure is on men. And it's a lot of pressure. It was never meant to be that way.
When you take power out of one gender, one aspect of humanity, that energy has to go somewhere. It's actually manifesting in the form of too much pressure, where men feel like they cannot be wrong, they can’t make the wrong choice, they cannot fail. So, because of that, some of them never even go for it. Some of them never even try because they're so scared to fail. The ones that do try then have a lot of blame. They blame themselves, then they blame others.
Very often, if a guy would try something for the sake of his family, like take a risk or something, or take an unloved job, and they either get stuck with it or they just feel like they're failing at life, they would blame themselves, but they would also blame their families, and they would blame people around them that they had to make the sacrifice for. So, it's a lot of guilt and blame as a shadow. There's a lot of shadow aspects. Maybe I'll switch quickly to women.
Sergei: Yeah, let's do women.
Mariya: Just as many issues with connection, it takes different formats but a lot of shadow around being secure in going after that connection, and admitting that you need it, and admitting that you want it. Again, you have either women that withdraw or women that are too clingy, issues with connection. Either they call you all the time like, “What time you coming home? I haven't seen you in a while.” Whether that's from a wife, or that's from a mother, you know those archetypes really, really well. It's because they have an issue with connection, but also an issue, a lot, a lot of shadow for women in the yellow set center.
In fact, the yellow center in women is so underdeveloped. I could not begin to tell you. In some women, it's absent altogether. So, everything that makes them who they are, everything that makes them themselves, which is not to say that the egos are absent. So, there's a lot of shadow in the yellow sector for women, because they never had to stand for themselves. They could just let their husband figure things out for them. So, a lot of them just took the easy route and just took the easy path. They never had to figure out what it is that they want. Get married. Have children. Be a homemaker. You can do it. So, they didn't have to develop the yellow center. And so, there's a whole slew of shadows associated with that on the emotional level.
A lot of them have never experienced self-fulfillment. A lot of them have never experienced true creativity, in a way that doesn't stem from what society wants them to do, but stems from what they want to do, because creativity for women has historically been defined as arts. It’s like you sing, you dance, you paint, maybe you write, that's it. But what about everything else? When your creativity spectrum is so limited, you're really not truly able to be creative at all.
I mentioned a lot about sense of personal power, sense of personal space. There's a lot of victim mentality in the collective feminine on this planet. So, being put in a position of a victim, either rebelling from a position of a victim, or just suffering from a position of a victim, so that concept of the oppressor and the slave, or the feminine displaying the slave and all feel so sorry for itself. So, there is a lot of that aspect of deep sorrow, instead of joy. Very few women actually experienced true joy.
Sergei: That's very sad.
Mariya: Outside of maybe connected to children, but even that is short-lived. Because women are not able to build their sense of self-identity, like I said, the yellow is broken, they find their identity in their family members. Very often, it's the husband or children. That's why when they get separated or the children leave, the woman doesn't have anything of herself remaining.
Sergei: You mean she doesn't live for herself, she lives for her husband and children?
Mariya: I guess that's one way of putting it, but it's not as benevolent. It's okay to give freely and come from a position of, “My cup is so full, that I want to help you. I want to support you.” A lot of women come from a position of, “I am so empty, that I need a reason to live that's outside of me. And the society is telling me it's my family, my husband and my children, so I will live vicariously through them.” It doesn't work that way.
It actually is making out four generations of very, very unhappy women, because the female energy is a giving energy. And when your cup is empty, you have nothing to give, it throws you for a loop. It throws you for a loop of what's wrong with me. Why am I so drained and tired all the time? Why do I feel like everybody's clinging to me for energy that I don't have to give? Why do I feel like everybody's always taking from me?
Just, again, goes back to that victim mentality, very prevalent, a lot of body issues, a lot of self-assessment issues, a lot of issues with low self-confidence, because women have been deranked to bodies. It's a society where they're judged very outwardly for their beauty, for the most part. And every time there's something that doesn't conform to the ideals of the society, the big, big, big shadow comes up and that shadow actually ends in, “I'm going to end up alone.” That's the fear.
The fear, “I'm going to end up alone,” because I'm not superficially pretty. And that is yet, again, the self-worth is not there. Women don't feel worthy in and of themselves, because they were never allowed a chance to stand for themselves, make their way in the world, and actually see that they're worth something. So, their biggest fear is being alone because their yellow center is so underdeveloped, that they truly cannot stand on their own two feet, because they don't know what the hell they want. They don't know what the hell makes them happy, things like that. And of course, there's a big fear of motherhood, of birth. Even of being a bad wife, of not being enough, big shadow. But again, I could keep going.
Sergei: Yeah, it's a lot of shadows. We can have a separate episode just on shadows. [Laughs] That's cool. Thank you so much for sharing that. And my last question would be around new emotions. Are there any new emotions that are going to be available for humanity in the nearest future?
Mariya: You mean new for the planet?
Mariya: There's nothing new under the sun. I mean, define you, right?
Sergei: Yeah. I've heard that the range of emotions is so broad that people have not experienced the whole range, even if you look at the entire humanity.
Mariya: Well, that's just what I said. Yeah.
Sergei: Yeah, and because the vibrations are going up, maybe people will be able to experience some new emotions?
Mariya: So, the one level up for men is the green chakra and for women also. So, the humanity has been living in the shadow of red to yellow in terms of chakras. The next two chakras up are green and blue. So, what that means is they bring with themselves a certain type of emotion or new levels that humanity might not have experienced before. So, all kinds of emotions around love, but not just romantic love more so like loving your community, supporting the collective more, so love more in the more cosmic sense, taking people as part of yourself, even if they're not in your immediate family, and that's actually for both genders. So, higher aspects of love are definitely up for disrupting this planet at the moment. And that’s going to be a common refrain for the next 10,000 years. It's not necessarily for right now.
Then expression, which is that blue chakra, it's true expression. For men, it'll unlock their emotional expression. So, we're going to start seeing a lot more men leading with their heart and who they truly are on this planet. We're going to start collectively transcending for men, that authoritarian-type leadership that is very suffocating and very old energy. For women, we're going to start seeing self-expression in the sense of self-discovery, understanding what you want, and communicating that freely, standing for it, standing for your higher potential. Also, communication between the genders. True understanding is going to start slowly sifting through, very slowly. Transcending between genders is hundreds of thousands of years away.
Sergei: Yeah, when you go slowly, it means hundreds of thousands of years.
Mariya: Yes, it's going to take a little bit of time. But that expression of true highest potential, for the truest highest good, is a completely new frequency. It’s not “I want this to make me rich.” It's not “I want this to make me happy.” It's “I want this because it's going to serve everyone” type of expression. It’s very much a new energy on this planet. And a new emotion because how it makes you feel is very different from just self-serving and me, me, me, me, me, all the time.
Sergei: Got it. Yeah. That's awesome. All right. Thank you so much for sharing this information with us today. And now I'm going to end our session. And I'm very grateful for the information you provided to us today. I'm asking the Higher Self to recede to where it belongs, but much love and much thanks for the help and information that has been given to Mariya today. And now she's really going to appreciate it. Now I want all the consciousness and personality of Mariya to once again return and fully integrate back into the body completely.
