Why to Trust Feelings and Question Emotions
with Katie Kieffer
You’ve probably heard the ideas “trust your feeling” but that means something very different from trusting your emotions. Feelings and emotions both give information and sensation. Feelings come from intuition and awareness, and give you a current sense of what is happening and what you need to know in the present. Emotions come from learned opinions and judgments as well as subconscious conditioning and rise with an urgency for action or reaction based on learned triggers from the past. Yet, many people interpret “trust your feeling” as meaning “trust your emotions.” But following the actions and reaction of your emotions can get you into real trouble.
In this conversation with Theta Healer Katie Kieffer, learn the critical difference between them and how to use them for a more wisdom-filled life. Plus, these juicy topics:
Feelings are ever present, but quiet and you can best hear them when you learn to bring emotions into a state of neutrality.
Emotions and thoughts are loud, urgent and compelling, and because they also trigger the body’s hormone and stress system. The information and call to action they give passes once the biochemical reaction fades, so acting on them often feels very good in the moment but often leads to further problems.
As we evolve into higher vibrations. we will likely have more harmony between thoughts and emotions, because we will be less reactive and have less urgency and more calm with emotions.
You can use healing emotions like compassion to repair the physical damage done by stress-based emotions.
Practicing the yes/no guidance of feelings with relaxed things like what outfit to wear or what to have for breakfast can help you begin to recognize feelings and how they differ from emotions, thoughts and opinions.
Be kind to yourself as you learn this, we’ve all been taught to ignore feelings and override them with opinions, logic and emotions. This is a new skillset that will serve you well in the emerging era.
Katie Kieffer coaches, mentors, and guides clients through the inner work of healing, evolving, and aligning within themselves. She’s passionate about understanding self and others as multi-faceted, multi-dimensional beings in this human experience. The idea of living from the soul, what she calls Sacred Self, lights her up. She absolutely loves helping clients move beyond the conditioning, karmic patterns, and ties of the past so they can move into the present and future to create a life they truly enjoy experiencing.
