Emotional Referral Zone 5
The fifth ERZ is the center of choice and consequence. It is the center of your struggle with choice and the ability to release your will to Divine guidance. It’s essence is faith – faith in our fears or faith in the Divine.
The fifth ERZ embodies the challenges of surrendering our own willpower and spirit to the will of God. From a spiritual perspective, our highest goal is the full release of personal will into the “hands of the Divine,” rather than creating our own conditions in life.
As the center of will, the fifth ERZ houses your ability to express your needs and desires, and your power of choice. It is the force behind acts of creation; choice also creates consequences. The fifth ERZ is also the center of how you demonstrate your honor and commitment to others. Fifth ERZ vows are promises of the body, mind, heart, and spirit merged as one.
You develop a powerful personal will by making choices that draw on both the desires of the heart and the wisdom of the mind. Developing the strength to manage the power of will is perhaps the most difficult stage in spiritual maturation.
The greatest act of will in which we can invest our spirits is to choose to live according to these rules:
- Make no judgments.
- Have no expectations.
- Give up the need to know why things happen the way they do.
- Trust that the unscheduled events of our lives are a form of spiritual direction.
- Have the courage to make the choices we need to make, accept what we cannot change, and have the wisdom to know the difference.
