The Difference between Feelings and Emotions - Part 2

Hinging upon the article I posted yesterday, I want to add the following thoughts.

Experiencing fear when you are considering your options could mean that you are picking up on the energy of another person—perhaps someone is urging you to make a decision that you really don’t think is best, but you are afraid of the consequences of disappointing them. Being true to your feelings means making the decision that is best for you and your divine path. If someone is trying to persuade you to be disloyal or is trying to lead you astray by making false promises, the above exercise should help you clarify the intentions of another person. Being honest with yourself means feeling what you feel without judging it to be right or wrong. The more honest you are with yourself, the more you will be able to discern truth and lies in others.

Once you get in touch with a feeling, continue to hold that sensation and get used to how it feels in your body. This is your instructive instinct—spiritual guidance or intuition that you can learn to trust and follow. Intuition and feelings do not come from the rational side of your brain; they come from a place of higher knowing that is meant to guide you even if it means taking risks.

I encourage you to do this exercise often because it will put you more in touch with your body, your feelings, and your internal guidance to help you make decisions from a place of higher understanding without emotional baggage. It will give you courage to go for what you really want in life and trust that everything will work out in perfect and divine timing and order.

  1. This is great info. I love the way you write things and make it very understandable. I am very Empathic and pick up other peoples stuff, and spent much of my life that way. I recently purchased your book Whose Stuff Is This. I needed this a long time ago, but everything happens at the time it is supposed to right? :) THANK YOU so much for your wisdom and insight. :) When I get finished reading your book for the second time I will share it with a friend.
