Some thoughts on FEELINGS


"Feelings, nothing more than feelings..." -- Morris Albert

I can't think of the word feelings without hearing this song, but who knew it was sung by a guy??? I would have sworn it was Barbara Streisand or some other female diva. But no, it's this guy. (I also found this version by Nina Simone, which I think is pretty amazing.)

Anyway, my Guides wanted to talk about FEELINGS today. Here's what they had to say: 
Enjoy all of your feelings, not just those you have labeled 'good.' When you stop and really feel them, all emotions feel good. Think about it. Doesn't it feel good to feel sad sometimes? Or to feel the rush of anger? The exhilaration of joy? The bubbling up of excitement? Do you allow yourself to truly feel all of your feelings or do you tamp some of them down? Label them 'bad' or 'evil' or 'too much?'
Acting on your feelings is a different matter entirely. It is not okay to lash out in anger or shame someone else with your success, but to authentically feel the emotions present within our body is essential to living a full life. Commit to feeling your feelings today in all of their multifarious varieties.
