Emotions are the primal base of your body reaction that unites the brain to the mind. They are your higher responses that incorporate your reflective thought and value in the process of emoting. Feelings are your drive and connection to your state of being or situations in your life with things and or people. How you feel is based on your body and brain chemistry that reward or punish you through your neurons and endorphins.
The saying ‘we have chemistry’ is appropriate but you also receive the chemical reward when you have worked hard and feel good afterward. Feelings incorporate thinking and judgment including belief systems that come from yourself and others. Your drive to accomplish and be motivated includes passion which is triggered by mental pictures and value attached to emotions.
If you do not feel good about what you are doing you will not have your full capacity to flow and perform your tasks. It is important to express yourselves to others for this is the basis of your creativity and expression that you value yourselves with. If you are being ostracized you cannot function to your potential. The same goes for the opinions you have about yourself. Since feelings give you potential and the channels of your creative energy flow open, it is of inherent value to see yourself in a good light.
This is why it is important to reboot yourself when you are in a tailspin and a downward course of self-destruction. You must rewrite your negative chemistry and self-opinions to change your feelings. This may mean a complete change beginning with diet to include cleansing and fasting. For old habits of toxic substances will in no uncertain terms affect your body chemistry.
Smoking deadens the brain by cutting off vital oxygen, trans fatty acids and excessive meat deaden awareness. Alcohol and drugs toxify the liver and numb brain function. The mind holds opinions based on belief systems of reactionary or taught programs as well as what others say and show to you. Both diet substances and mental pictures impress upon your feelings.
So this covers the basis of feelings of what you may need to adjust to bring yourself to your higher vibration and dynamic. Periodic maintenance is crucial in staying aligned and true to your soul, to have the best potential and drive based on a good feeling about yourself. Just remember, you are responsible and must control your life to understand your nature and actions, for all your experiences that come to pass are greatly influenced by your health and self-feelings.
