Most people operate on the assumption that how they feel, is a result of what happens around them. This talk explores the role our thoughts play in the equation.

My thoughts
I learned that when you think about something else instead of just feeling you can feel different you don’t have to feel the emotion you can think of something else.

I needed to be reminded that just because I think something, doesn't make it true. I'm going to be reminding myself of this over and over.

I noticed that I have the power to make my day good or bad
I learned that you can change your day simply by seeing the positive side of events and not feeling pity for yourself and think “ugh this sucks bad thing always happen to me” instead think “now I can do this...” or “if this didn’t happen I would have never learned this...”

I learned that no matter the circumstances think positive even if it’s some bad think of a better outcome and it will change the way you look at things 🌿

I learned that my perception of daily events can determine how I feel. The more positive my perceptions, the happier and mentally healthy I will be 😌

Thoughts
A lot of how our day goes reflects on how we feel when we come home at the end of it. Trying to think positively when faced with difficult situations can ultimately change the way you feel after everything is said and done.

First life coach session
I’ve learned that it’s not always about me and how things affect me. I learned that I need to stop being negative and look at the positive things in life and look at things in a positive way
E
Eryn
First lesson
Pay attention to my mood When I’m stressed or anxious ask myself if there is another way for me to interpret the situation. This also works whenever I’m angry at something I have no control over (like someone else’s driving) it is useless to waste my energy on anger towards about something i had no control over. Feeling pretty good. I also stretched while she talked to me and that was nice. I feel like if I would have tried to medicate I would have gotten more stressed.

Teachings and prayers
Because we can choose to think something differently to change what we feel in the moment means that you cannot trust yourself to have to the “correct” emotions about things. I see this story as a way of telling people that you are in control even when you FEEL you are not, but if you can’t successfully change the way you feel simply by changing the way you THINK you feel then, god save you.

Empathy
This was a calming talk. It’s always good to be reminded that we control our own thoughts and behaviors. And no one else. Be nice and always remember the person who just acted inappropriately may be having the worst day of their life. Love each other.

Stress Reflection
I learned that I need to think about why people act the way they do. Not in a bad way, but maybe they’re going through a lot and they’re not usually assholes. Especially working in the hospitality service, I need to remember that everyone is living there own lives and we don’t know what’s going on in their lives.

Emma
I noticed that it’s okay not to be okay it’ll get better
Also to control the way you think about things and look at them with a different perspective

Perception
I learned that life does not alter our mood itself, but the reaction to a stimuli in our life dictates how we feel. We choose how we want to perceive any given event, where to look at the positive, or the negative.
J

Open-Minded
I have noticed that we like to see the world in one way and that we don’t want anything to change. I’ve also learned that we need to be more open-minded to certain things and try our best not to get angry, sad, etc. over something.

Today was not a good day, I was tired and people were rude to me. But, when I got home I got on Aura and I felt better and learned that I can turn the bad things that happened today into motivation to do my best.

Just because you think something doesn’t make it true...such an amazing and powerful statement. The moment we alter how we perceive a situation from hate to Love. We can find Peace and Joy in any situation.

Relation to revelation
The relationship demonstrated of thoughts, feelings, and our surroundings leads to a revelation. I can’t control what happens around me but I can change my thoughts and response. Question the surroundings and question if my response is valid or if there are other circumstances which elicit an empathetic response.

I know that when I do honk in this way I do feel better. I need to get good at thinking this way more often. Positive.

What did she say?
I’m laughing so hard I can hardly see! 😂. Towards the end of the meditation, the teacher is talking about getting cut off in traffic and I think she says “ok, a**hole”, but maybe there’s a reason why that person cut you off. It’s a great meditation to make you think twice before judging, but this really caught me off guard. Please correct me if I’m wrong. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

It’s not road rage 🤯
I get it, we have more control over our feelings and reactions then we think. But sometimes I just want to call someone a (a..hole) if they cut in front of me while I’m driving and almost kill me. It’s not like road rage 😡 it’s verbally venting and it happens spontaneously! Then a little deep breathing to settle down. OMG that was close!😱

WOW
This life lesson taught me to look at the optimistic side instead of the pessimistic side. She used real life examples that happen very often to really connect to the listener.

Thinking and Feeling
Our feelings are not determined by our external environment, but rather the way we think about it. If it is a rainy day, we might think that it means our plans are cancelled, and then feel sad or disappointed, or we can think about the other things we might be able to do instead, like sitting inside, wrapped up warm in bed reading your favourite book, in turn, feeling happiness. 🌤 🌧 📖 It is our reactions to events and the interpretations we make in everyday life that influence the way we are feeling. Try to change the way you think and you might just feel that little bit better. 😊

I can choose
“Just because you think something doesn’t mean it’s true” That last quote really resonated with me because I’m always worrying about whether my relationship is right and how I’m supposed to be feeling. Because of this concern, I’m never feeling positive. This reminds me that I can choose to be positive and happy just like I have been for 2 years. I deserve those feelings and so does my wonderful, selfless partner!

Thoughts
I learned just how important thought and how u feel about a certain situation can affect you. Just because ur view is causing unpleasant emotions and feelings doesn’t that you have a clear view of the situation. You may have interpreted the situation incorrectly. Responding with empathy to your unpleasant thoughts can directly impact how you feel.
S

Positively interpret the situations
I could either choose happiness and not let anything steal my joy or I could choose to have my emotional self jolted from left to right based on little things that happen around me like getting cut off in traffic or experiencing a rainy day!

Rock bottom
This made me realize that when I feel like I have hit rock bottom and I always have to work my butt off to get back to the top, to not look at it as a time of defeat but a chance to try again. I have never interpreted thoughts and feeling that way cause I have only looked at them as nothing more than what we feel on a daily basis but hearing that really makes you think about your everyday feelings. I went to practice my trumpet today and it was horrible I’m trying to memorize music so I can make starting lineup for marching band even though I’m only going to be a freshman. And it just wasn’t going my way and I wasn’t getting the music down I got so upset that I stopped practicing and went for a walk as I was walking I started crying because I couldn’t take private lessons over the summer because they were out of our control so I couldn’t get the help I needed and at that moment I wasn’t upset anymore I was more frustrated and stressed than ever. Things kinda just started going downhill for the rest of the night or at least that is what it felt like, but after hearing and listening to this I realized that things weren’t bad at all it was just the way I was seeing them to be. This helped me so much and I can go to sleep not feeling stressed or like there is a ton of weight on my shoulders but feel like everything will just get better from her so thank you for that.

Cut the scenarios
Isn’t it more about accepting the moment ‘as is’? No strings attached? This feels a bit like deceiving yourself, imagining positive scenarios to justify what’s happening to you.

Don’t give in
This meditation really allowed me to confront daily action that may affect me with a different thought pattern. It took me a while to realize just because I think something doesn’t mean it’s true and to change my emotions when I’m confronted with negativity and try to respond to situations differently.

Thoughts 2
I was so terrified at the beginning. I kept thinking and thinking and always found a negative comeback as she spoke. But I fell into the subtle music and the meaning of what she said. At the end I realized what she saying was true... Now I suddenly feel a comforting relief.
A
Anita
I felt invigorated, calm & reminded.
I learned to remember it’s all about perception. Mindful of old adage, cannot control what happens to oneself but only how one deals with the cards we’re dealt/obstacles/challenges we encounter in terms of doing better and being better in adversity. Also cannot know what everyone’s reality is so try to give others the benefit of the doubt and be kind rather than angered/spiteful.

I felt like everything in my life was going wrong
I learned that things my not turn out the way u want it, but that there’s always another way, and that we just need to wait patiently cuz u never know what could happen.😊 (Never let a rainy day change ur day and your mood)...

Positive thoughts
I learned that when we get a negative thought towards something that has happened, we don’t stop to think why that thing has happened. This meditation helped me to see that certain thoughts eat away at you and stress you out. If you don’t stop and think, “why am I thinking these thoughts? I don’t need to think them”, you can minimise that stress and feel more at peace.
E
Edda
Thoughts and feelings
I remembered that assumption of the things that happen around us daily is what makes us feel negative emotions and that when practicing not assuming and just notice what happened the emotions don’t get altered.

The Power of Thoughts & Feelings
I learned I should practice more with thoughts and feeling because it's a reflection on how we can interpret things we see or hear, in any given situation. Sometimes, the human tendency of control will react without knowing the unbalanced universe scale reasons. By looking at the equation and recognizing our own off-center days of distraction without judgment of ourselves or others with a resolution, just by letting go. I believe this to be the real emotional power of thoughts & feeling and moving forward.

Moods come and go
I learned that moods and feelings can pass by like waves. You don’t always have to stress about every mood swing. It just takes watching and listening to your body.

I feel hopeful, I learned that it is not what happends around me that affects how I feel, but how I choose to look at the situation. this not something I can change overnight but its a helathy reminder to look at the positive side of things.

How YOU think
You can’t control what other people do. But what you can always control is how you react. I feel it is important to always practice control and how you react many things that seem annoying or might make you angry or stressed out can simply be thought of another way and everybody will be better off for it.

My thoughts are my subjective truth
The lenses by which I view the world may be exchanged for yellow, reflective, or rose-colored. Even if they are clear lenses, they are MY lenses, and I am the only person who can see thru them. So, why not look for the best viewpoint? It can only improve my perspective!

Creative mind
Our mind can shift us into panic or peace, depending on what we allow ourselves to concentrate on. I struggle with anxiety but I’m finding that meditation directs my mind to peace and less worrying. I learned how thoughts are just thoughts, but by gaining new insight we may create a new aspect that promotes happiness, generosity and love. Good night.
K
Kathy
Occurrences
How we feel about what occurs around us during the day is subject to our interpretation of the events. The events themselves do not cause us to feel any particular way. Rather, it is the way we view and interpret the events, the meaning we give them is the cause of our feelings and responses to the events.

I needed this reminder. I had rude guests at my job today that lashed out at me for something out of my control. It does become hurtful when it’s constant and I cried on my way home. Tomorrow I will remind myself it has nothing to do with me.

A great reminder
I previously learned that a thought is not a fact and to be mindful of my thoughts affecting my feelings years ago, but this is a fantastic and quick reminder of this practice and possibly one to use to start many days off in a more mindful positive way. Great stuff! 😊
S
Stewart
Useful Lesson
this is something I strive to be mindful of every day. constantly I let what other people do, think and say influence how I feel and the things I do. I need to step back and think, "Hey, you are what matters, you are alright, you will be alright and who gives a fuck about what other people think"

Great reminder that we aren’t in control of the things around us , but we are in control of how we interpret and allow things to have an effect on us/our emotions. Being more mindful and aware of the moment , rather than just reacting can dictate and change your whole state of being. Thank you<3 AB

influence on feelings
people let the things which happen around us have influence on our feelings. when it rains you get sad because you think you will get sad. when someone cuts you off in traffic you get angry but see it in another way. when it rains you can read a book, drink tea and watch that movie you wanted. when someone cuts you off you can think oh, maybe they were in a rush to someone in the hospital. this was a very helpful lesson and im gonna try to remember this really well

Perspective
I really like how this session made me look at situations differently. We (myself included) can get so self absorbed that we don't realize whoever gets us angry /stressed has their own story. Also just trying to put a different spin on a not so great situation can be real helpful.

I Just Want To Feel Like Me Again
I used to be so optimistic and cheerful but now I'm always stressed, tired, and overall just confused a lot of the time with how my emotions and thoughts and feelings work because it scares the fuck out of me to not know why I can't hold a good relationship, or why I overthink how my friends feel towards me, or even just wondering where I'd be tomorrow as an Agnostic if the world ended or if I died right now. alright I'm rambling. sorry to anyone who's read this far. but hey here I am again apologizing for the fear of annoying people or bothering them with this and hoping people don't just assume I'm this weak, sad, complaining mind spilled onto an app. that's all, ok, enjoy the rest of your meditations and relaxation

Thoughts & Feelings part 1
I learned that we have control over how we feel. We can’t let what happens to us control our feelings. Our thoughts and mind set on how we react to a situation has total control on our feelings. The way we react and respond to situations and obstacles and challenges can determine how we think and feel. If we have a positive attitude and mindset then we will feel happier and be happier then if we act and respond negatively. Its all about mindfulness we, myself included need to be more aware of our thoughts and then how we respond and react to certain things and then make sure we are aware that when we do think something, see if we can alter it and be aware and ask ourselves if there is a possibility of a different way to view it or a different outcome. Just because we think something doesn’t mean it’s right. This meditation was very helpful. Namaste 😌
M
Matthew
Reaction>feelings
Our responses to situations are different than our feelings. For me, typically a fairly negative person, my reactions to situations tend to be pretty gloomy overall. But I don't have to let it define me or rule my days. I can choose to see the silver lining rather than the storm clouds. Thankfully, my beautiful wife is my opposite! She's typically bright and cheerful. The optimist balance to my pessimist self.
A

Personal Development
I need to consider alternative view points when I’m frustrated by others or outside influences that I can’t control.
E
Elisabeth
Setting the tone
Just because I think something, doesn’t make it true. I’m capable of so much more than I limit myself to. If I stop and take some deep breaths, then try to see another perspective to a conflict/obstacle, I preserve my mind and body. Healthier and happier for me to forgive, let it go, and look forward to a better tomorrow
D
Dana
Judging in a wrong way
Just because I think something doesn't make it true. It depends from which side you see it.
B
Barb
Good points
Sometimes it feels like this is obvious, or should be - that it’s our interpretation of situations that helps define how we feel about things, but it so often isn’t. But it’s an essential part of understanding, and practicing, mindfulness. Deciding, discerning how we respond (like not flipping the bird to someone who tried to cut me off in traffic last night, instead giving my car a good congratulatory pat of appreciation) is essential; responding in anger would only escalate the anger in the situation, and leave me upset all night. So, yes - we can control our responses to a great extent, if we decide to beforehand. It’s training oneself to be mindful.

"everything happens to me..."
i've noticed that once you start using that sentence, everything seems worse. a little setback in your day becomes something that completely ruins it and you get into a loop where even if good things happen to you, you only focus on the bad ones, even if they are far less important. this holds you back from actually enjoying your achievements. if you feel this way i would recomend listening to this. it really helped me! :)

I learned that how you think what you I feel isn’t necessary true like someone cuts in front of you driving makes me angry someone blows from behind like they’re in a rush to get work or wherever makes me nervous when I hear a siren or ambulance or something.

Today I learned
Apparently work cares more about me than I thought, and that the reciprocal is true about how much effort they think I put into my job. Got a final written warning and my first written one right before it. I don’t know how to feel about it but I feel new, like a new mindset towards work. It was like a dissociative wake up call.

Aura Day 1
When I listened to Cassandra talk I realized what she said was very true and reflective of how I act day to day. I need to begin making small changes and try my hardest to stay postive about everything that I encounter. Whether I wanted it to happen or was suprised by it, I can only control how I react. I can do this!

I've been saying it till I'm blue in the face. I do not feel love from my partner.
I've been emotionally exhausted and disconnected. I almost have anxiety everytime I'm w him. I can't be myself and I'm self conscious and uncomfortable. I'm just hoping things will get better before I find something better. I'm feel like I'm noticing other men and I envy or admire couples I see. I'm confused inside...

E
Elijah
Even your reactions are a choice...
When it comes to a situation, what you do or how you react to it is a choice. If you were caught in traffic, you can get to choose to be angry or see the bright side of it. Choose your battles wisely. Choose how you will react to a certain situation whatever you feel is the right thing to do.

Thinking...
Do not let events or people determine how you feel. Choose to feel good & think good thoughts first and you can then see good in every event & every person! It is always there waiting to be discovered by the wise person looking for it. Thus one of my favorite sayings is : “What you Think about, you bring about” Our repeated thoughts start the Law of Attraction in motion. We determine if it is for the best or worst, by our Choice of how we feel about it or them. Then the events and people to support how we feel start to appear into our lives. WE should control our environment, not the other way around. ❤️☮️🍀

1st Lesson
your thoughts become things. it's not what happens to you that controls your mood, it's your reaction to these things. I love this lesson it hits home for me because I used to let outside factors get to me andi always blames that for the way I was feeling but o can LET IT GO and LET IT BE and feel so much better without holding onto all of that.

Control your thoughts for a peace of mind
Don’t let external circumstances dictate how we feel . It’s how we interpret what happens that dictated how we feel . Don’t let outside circumstances control you . It’s what we think that happens that counts . Ask your self is there another way of looking at this situation . Just because you think something doesn’t mean it’s true . Don’t jump to conclusions or assume

Interpretation
I cannot change what is happening around me. But, there have been so many times where I have allowed my feelings to change because of what was happening around me. In this Life Coaching session, I have learned that if I change the interpretation of my thoughts about a situation, I can change the way I feel about it. It is my interpretation of my thoughts that I can control. By doing so, I can open myself up to feeling different about what is happening around me. After all, Just because I think something doesn’t make it true! Thank you Cassandra for such a powerful Life Coaching session! Namaste! 🙏🏻❤️😊

Today, I await word from one of my lawyer’s assistants who is supposed to be finding out from Social Security just WHY the hell I haven't yet received my disability settlement!

Thoughts and feelings part 1
I got a better understanding on the importance on how we react to things. And how we as people even when something happens that we don't like that we need to take a moment and consider how to handle ourselves when something occurs. I need to work on this by controlling myself to be more contained and not react or say on impulse and think before handling things. Because it is our reaction that is important.

Positivity!
You can’t change what happens around you, but you can change how you react to it and how you think about it. Instead of looking at the world with negativity, try changing your negative thoughts into positive ones. For example, “I’m so bad at this!” to “I can get better that this!” Change your negative thoughts into positive ones by rearranging or replacing the words. It may seem difficult at first, but eventually, you won’t even have to change any of your thoughts because you’ll start automatically thinking positively without even realizing it!

I find that I'm constantly battling my thoughts. Typically I'm quite negative and fatalistic in my thinking. I cover it up well enough in real life, but those who know me best recognize it for what it is. My wife, who has been having to live with it for more than twenty years now, teases me constantly about being such a pessimist. Thankfully, she's quite the opposite of me. A natural optimist to counter my natural predilection to pessimism.

What I Learned
I learned that i tend to go right to worst case scenario and that i can make hasty decisions too quickly. Sometimes i just need to take a step back, breathe, observe, and figure out how i can approach things more logically. This won’t be my life forever and i will get past this, just like any other day. I need to take the whole situation, break it down and solve it step by step until it’s figured out. If i don’t go through it and put it off, i tend to be more anxious in the long run.

Everything is about perspective. In order to manage how you feel (especially when it comes to negative feelings) thinking about things in a different way, in a more positive way, can help you give rise to more positive feelings. Even though things happening around you can be really frustrating at times, remembering that although you can’t control what happens around you but you can control how you react/respond can help alleviate the stress and frustration you may be feeling.

Change your perspective
I've too been guilty of always blaming outside factors for my moods or my thoughts/feelings. Took me a bit, but once you can change your perspective, you start to realize your thoughts are merely subjective and varied. They are not facts, just simply your very own personalized thoughts. Change your thoughts! I believe empathy is huge here as well, since understanding from another view means you understand another person's emotions. This practice has helped me a lot, though im still subject to my previous conditioning.

Today is my 44th birthday.
I realized that I have been so lucky and blessed with wonderful people around me but I selfishly have never paid attention back to them since around 2013. My business started going off very well but became so busy that I stopped meditation around that time. I tried to be competitive, having a very wrong ideas that my mere successes benefits people around me, not realizing that I started hurting and ignoring them and gradually I was in chronic anger, I didn’t notice at all. Every loved one left. Just being there, supportive, patient for them , spending time with them are the things I should have tried.

You can control how you react
Taking control of emotions before they control you. It’s all about perspective. It’s about what you do with what happens to you that counts. So many pithy sayings come to mind like “Let go of the things you cannot control and focus on the things you can” The challenge here is how do you best manage your emotions.

I learned that even though I can’t control the things happening around me, I can control my reaction and interpretation to those things, which in return will leave me with a healthier and happier mindset. This resonated deeply with me. I actually say this often but it was a good reminder. Recently I’ve been blaming my coworkers, supervisors, and work for my sour attitude, when in reality I just need to change my thoughts and not allow things I can’t control to control me.

I can cry when meditating, I feel emotion wash over me. I am experiencing a total breakdown of my business that is less than a year old. I am searching for meaning and the life lessons I need to experience while here. I am struggling to stay in the moment. I have been gifted with unending compassion for others, however I absorb much of the pain and anguish of others. Now I feel responsible for much of the pain they are going through. This is too much for me to carry alone. I know that, I worked in mental heath for at least 17 years, and many of those years were working with people In crisis, now I am finding myself in the same place.

Controlling...
I can not control what others say or do. I can only control what I say or do... if I think about it first. Otherwise, I am just re-acting to them. So I should/need to pause after someone says or does something before I say or do anything. In this way I can truly speak & act independently instead of dependently re-acting to them. Big difference... Huge!! ❤️🤐🍀

It’s all in the mind
A professor taught us in HS that there’s a mathematical (yet very simple) way to look at every situation, so we can better assess if we’re doing the right thing or not. It goes: Event + Action/Reaction = Outcome. He then cautioned us that the constant in this equation is that we can NEVER control any event or scenario that is happening around us. But what we CAN control, however, in order to achieve a good outcome, is our action/reaction to that event. This is a good addition to that scheme, because it clearly states that a good action/reaction stems from having clear and perceptive thoughts. It most certainly is hard to implement, but like everything else, it takes practice. Besides, every event is a learning opportunity. Thank you. Namaste

You can’t change what happens around you, but you CAN change how you react and think about what happens around you. For example, you can’t help if your coworker is in a bad mood. But you can change how you react towards them. One way to interpret this is by reacting to them with brutalness. “You’re never happy! Why can’t you just be happy for one day. Why can’t you just keep this all inside of you so it doesn’t ruin other people’s days.” OR you can choose to react with kindness. “Hey friend, how are you doing today? What’s got you in a bad mood? Is there anything you’d like to talk about? Is there anything I can do help you get out of this bad mood?”. It’s all up to you. Your life is in YOUR hands, not others hands. You choose the way you want to go about life. That being said, now to relate it to my own life; I need to take my life into my own hands. I’m tired of letting other people’s bad moods dictate my mood.

This is my favorite one
So much has happened in my life that's if I don't take on this view, ill fail as a person. this meditation is a reminder that I can have control of my life again. I want to watch a Ted talk and maybe read a book that is similar to this topic. I was once told that your thoughts affect the chemistry of your brain.Why do I feel so stressed out every day? My trauma isn't behind me but the worst is over. When I'm really hurting I tend to look outwards to fix things because I feel like I can't fix things from within. In times like these, I resort to caring about material things, so I actually like when I want something and know I'm not going to get it for a long time, because it helps me realize that the best thing I can change is myself...my attitude, my Appreciation for those around me and gratefulness that the worst is over.

Your thought about a situation influences your feelings which will bring up an emotion.
