Thinking and Feeling
When you are struggling with
To go against what you THINK you
should do, and go with what you FEEL is usually the better option.
We must go with what we FEEL we want to do, not with what we THINK is the
best thing to do.
Because otherwise we'll follow our
heads and still not be truly happy.
Thinking about how you feel.
Thinking about how you feel is fine, but to truly KNOW how you feel
requires a removal of thoughts for a short period of time. Some quiet
time, meditation or just a brief moment when you can close your eyes and
You feel it in your 'heart', either
a glowing feeling or a dull damp feeling.
Because we convince ourselves that we think we know what we feel.
We talk ourselves out of what we really truly want with our nagging

You THINK you should do something, so you do it, continue with it but feel
You then DO what you feel you want to do, and you get a burst of
contentment.. ok, so it MAY not last... because then we start to WORRY if
we've done the right thing or not.

you feel. The key is to figure out which option will give you that short
sharp burst of peace/happiness/contentment/excitement.
To truly feel, close your eyes and
picture yourself in BOTH (or all) scenarios that you see in front of you.
Picture yourself THERE and acknowledge how you feel at the thought of
'being' in that scenario. Forget all of those 'nagging' thoughts, forget
about all the limitations or complications... we'll get to those in a
But truly, imagine completely
YOURSELF in each scenario without complications, and which one makes your
heart 'rise up', or glow, or glimmer...
If you are truly feeling, you will
feel parts of you 'glow' at certain thoughts, it may rise up in your heart
or your throat, it may sink down in your stomach or heart.
What you are feeling is YOUR energy
in your chakras.

our thoughts are based on fear, our feelings are true.
Thoughts are based on our Ego. Our Ego is separate from our Soul. Our Ego
thinks, our soul feels.
what you feel and worrying...
Don't worry - if you've done what you FELT was right, then you'll know
because you'll FEEL even for a short time, a feeling of relief,
contentment, happiness, excitement or peace.
If you've done what you THINK you should do and feel awkward, difficult,
distracted, discontent or unsettled - then you should worry ;-) (and start
When doing what you feel has
Complications are thoughts and practical issues which prevent us from
acting from our hearts. These limitations or considerations may be down to
financial constraints, lack of time, lack of support, family
considerations, location issues, legal or governmental conditions and
We must always act with
consideration for others, law, order and material limitations. It is
important to fully acknowledge if the complications are down to 'material'
or 'physical' limitations or 'emotional' and 'mental' limitations.

Emotional and mental limitations can
be in us, or in other people. We may not have the support of those we
love, or we may just feel overwhelmed in ourselves.
- If you feel what you want will hurt
others, you have to consider the laws of responsibility. i.e. You are
not responsible for the emotional situations of others. We all CHOOSE
how we feel. We all choose to hold on to anger, hurt or pain instead of
working through it and releasing it.. You choose it, others choose it
- If the limitation is within YOU, you have
all the power to change yourself. It simply takes a complete dedication
and commitment to your yourself.
