Emotions are thoughts with intensity. They can be felt in our mental space. They help us to feel how we are in this moment. We are designed to feel both negative and positive emotions for a purpose.
We experience a wide variety of emotions from love to fear. Love is based on feelings of security and unity, whereas fear is based on a sense of danger and separateness.
We sometimes experience many emotions simultaneously. We may feel fear, rejection, hurt, disillusionment, injustice, guilt and anger all at the same time. In such cases, we will need to discover which beliefs are creating each emotion.

Our emotions are usually triggered by some stimulus. Our usual stimuli are
• The most frequent stimuli have to do with statements, comments, behaviors or actions created by family, friends or coworkers.
• Stimuli can be external happenings such as earthquakes, fires, floods, political changes social events etc. We might feel fear, injustice, anger etc.
• Sometimes our thoughts about the past or the future become stimuli. We may feel bitter, angry or guilty about the past or anxious about the future. We might worry about our children’s success or failure.
• Our secondary reaction to the thoughts can also be stimuli. For example we may feel guilt because we notice ourselves feeling jealousy, hate or anger. Or we might feel self-rejection or anger at ourselves because we notice ourselves fearing.
