Most of the time feelings and emotions get confused.  They are as different as night and day.  Emotions are connected to triggers or the proverbial “pushing my buttons” routine that you experience when an emotional hook to a past experience is re-experienced.

The button pushing accompanies that emotional re-action, act one scene two, act four thousand, scene one million…you get the point…when that right or wrong situation rears its ugly head.  You automatically have to go into the defense mode and prove your Self right.  Or in the extreme emotional state of the conflict you will acquiesce and make your Self wrong about something or another. 

This emotional re-action is the button pushing scenario that keeps you suspended in the past, always on the defensive to prove your Self something or another.  You can even state that someone hurt your feelings.  No!  He or she did not hurt your feelings, your emotional body was triggered and your irrational emotions sprung into high gear.  You are on the alert. How does this happen?  

Your emotional hook or hooks to the past are triggered almost effortlessly.  When you are affected by the immense pressure on your emotional and physical body, you are forced by these emotional upheavals to re-process them. Whether you are aware of what is happening or not, you are destined to repeat these cycles of emotional instability.  No fun at all.  Therefore, it is not your feelings that are hurt.   You are triggered by the emotional hooks to your unresolved issues. You are hurting your Self by your reactionary emotional attachments to past experiences.  How’s that working for you?  You don’t have to do this. 

Your emotional body is connected to your left brain.  The left brain is supposed to be analytical and logical.  Not so much!  When you are only using your left brain which is connected to your male, right, manifesting side, the emotional Self re-creates the traumas and dramas on regular cycles of emotional upheavals. These upheavals may appear different but when you get down to the nitty-gritty, these emotional upheavals usually have interconnected relationships to previous emotional experiences.  Hence the repeated emotional patterns triggered in your left brain are re-created through your male manifesting side.  Good grief don’t you just hate when that happens?

However, when you connect to your feelings within you heart, you don’t have to go into reenactments of the past.  You can stay in the moment by feeling out the situation, the event and the relationship in the present time.  Feeling is heart based.  Emotions are head based.  You can’t emotional a connection unless it is a repeated dysfunctional relationship to someone or some situation.  You feel connection.  You can’t emotion love. You feel love.  Your female left creative side and your male right manifesting side are in alignment when you are feeling from your heart! You are connected to life with feeling and through feeling from your heart.

What you rationalize in your computer brain/head are the unreasonable reasons to react and emotionally repeat patterns, relationships and situations.  When you feel from your heart, you know without doubt what is best for you and your life.  Emotions are great excuses for excusing your Self.  Feelings are real, deep and empowering.  When you feel from your heart, you are centered in Self.  When you are emotional you are Self-centered.  A huge difference!

Feelings and emotions are worlds apart.  Emotions keep you apart from your Self.  Feelings keep you connected to your Self, you are a part of something greater than your emotions can ever achieve.  Emotions are repeated dysfunctional behaviors patterns from the past living in your present moment, when you are emotional.  Feelings are the expressions from your heart living in the moment and being alive.  Is there a difference between emotions and feelings?  Don’t think your answer.  Feel your answer. What do you feel?  Make a choice and see the difference.
