Why we have trust issues with our own feelings

Our emotions speak to us. They send signals, carry messages, and convey meaning. We've learned to listen for the message in our feelings, which is generally a good thing to do — just one problem.

Our emotions lie to us — all the time. Our feelings send faulty signals, deliver off-target messages, and invent false meaning.

When we listen for the message in our emotions, we aren't always sure whether it's telling us a truth we need to trust or a lie we must reject. This is why our emotions can be confusing to navigate.

Every emotion requires discipline, particularly the strong ones. Not because the feeling is good or bad. Not because we need to lower our emotions. Not because we need to leave emotions out of it.

Because we need to evaluate our feelings for the signals they're sending, the messages they're carrying, and the meaning they're conveying. Our emotions are not bound to the truth and have no obligation to accuracy.

You and your higher self must step into that role in your relationship with your feelings.

The time is now. Do the work.
