Feelings are the conscious experience of your emotional reaction. Your feelings arise out of what you think. Your feelings are incredibly powerful and it can seem at times, as though they overtake or control you. Here we discuss the relationship between your thoughts and feelings, and I share helpful cues for how to best understand why you feel the way you do; and how to change how you feel. p.s. There is a lot to take in, in each of these episodes of CBT 'Best Practices', including takeaway strategies and tools that you can immediately apply in your life! Listen with a way to take notes so that you can turn each episode into the change that you seek in your life!

Awareness
I learned that we have chosen our obstacles for our growth and experience. There wasn’t a villain that screwed us. We chose to manifest the experience. I also may have a narcissistic trait or two making Chris be a slave to what I want and isolating him. I wonder if he’s been unhappy.

Thoughts, feelings, behaviors
I spend a lot of time focusing on my behavior and how I feel but haven’t done as much exploration in the thought process. Even Kyle noticed, my slew is VERY negative and it’s exhausting for me and frankly, people who care about me. I don’t want to be “fake” but I also don’t have to choose the worst way of looking at things. Today, I’m making a conscious effort to interrupted negative thoughts and replace them with positive perspective. Then let’s see what that does for my feelings and eventually my behavior

Thoughts feelings and action allare intertwined. An unpleasant thought can create an emtion of fear sadness worry anger or pretense. JinShinJyutsu states the same as CBT . If i want to improve my
Health I need to balance my emotions by reducing negative thoughts.

Thoughts
I realize that my thoughts are controlled by underlying core beliefs . These core beliefs quite frequently the results of childhood experiences. There is much of my past life that I need to radically accept before I can make permanent changes that stick and those childhood feelings of not being good enough need questioning.

I feel..
I feel angry. Sleepy. Suffocated. But I want to replace it to feeling good. I miss him but not so much. I don’t care even he doesn’t miss me back. That’s how I feel. I hope tomorrow will be a better day with hope and inspiration.

Working to feel better
I want my thoughts to improve so that I can be a better wife, sister, daughter, cousin, aunt, niece and motivate myself to work harder for myself and those for I care about, people are counting on me and routing for me. Now all I need to do is have that same faith in myself.

Thoughts
Lead to emotions. What you think and your emotion generated persists.

Thoughts
Thoughts effect feelings, feelings effect behavior If you are thinking positively, you’re more likely to feel positive and see and react to situations that come up in a positive way, thus making you happier and behave as such

Like attracts like
When I concentrate on positive thoughts such as gratitude and happiness —I tend to have a good day. Best of all, the positive thoughts and energy attract other people with upbeat attitudes into my life 💭💕🥰

Physics of emotion
Every action (behavior caused by emotion) has equal and opposite reaction internally. Thought pattern I want: I am blossoming with blossom

Feelings
Its like when you buy a new car or a guitar, you start to see the same type of car or guitar…. They were there before, you just don’t saw them until you bought that same thing.

Manage my thought life
Thoughts determine feelings, feelings determine behavior. My positive thoughts today influence my future thoughts, thus determining my future behavior.

So inspiring
I so much love the meditations by D. Ratusny. Her voice, the content, the guidance are excellent. Could we add a short bio if the trainers on Aura and their books if any?

I woke up feeling blah about myself and the workday facing me and after this 3 minute re-charge I then felt I could face the workday rather than it facing me
A thought creates our feelings and our feelings create our behaviors

Negative thoughts
Once in a bad flow of thoughts, they tend to multiply. Need to learn to flip this negative thinking

How do you want to feel?
Your behaviour is influenced by how you feel. How you feel is influenced by how you perceive a situation. Negative thoughts feed the cycle

Thoughts drive feelings. Feeling happy now influences happy thoughts in the future. Nice loop! Excellent lesson.

Today
I feel hopeful. I feel relaxed. It rained all last night into the morning and today I will do some spring cleaning as we’ve entered Aries season (sidereal) and the energetic new year is completely upon us. I will spiritually cleanse my home and continue surrendering to Spirit so that I can guide myself to the best jobs to apply for. I am excited!

Our thoughts creating our feelings. Feelings then moving into everything we do or say. Wow.
