Emotions are created by believing thoughts

Emotions are created by believing thoughts. When we believe a positive thought, it creates an open and light feeling we call “positive emotions”. When we believe a negative thought, it creates a dense, heavy, or contracted feeling that we call “negative emotions”. Emotions aren’t created by thinking positive or negative thoughts, but rather by believing them. If you think “I am amazing”, you are only going to feel a positive emotion if you believe it. You won’t feel anything if you don’t believe the thought. The same applies for negative thoughts. If you think “I am stupid”, you are only going to feel a negative emotion if you believe it. You won’t feel anything if you don’t believe the statement you are thinking. 

When we believe a negative thought about ourselves, it creates the emotion we can call shame, hurt, inadequacy, unworthiness, worthlessness, insufficiency, defective, or like a failure. For example, if we fail at something, we can believe “I’m not good enough”, “I’m stupid”, or “I’m worthless”. When we believe a negative thought about life, such as “something isn’t good enough about my life to be happy”, it creates the emotion we can call sadness, lack, or incompleteness. For example, whenever we don’t get a result we want (food, sports, hobbies, desires, money), we can consciously or unconsciously believe “That would have made me happy, and now I can’t be as happy”. When we believe we are missing something that could have made us happy, we feel sadness. Whenever the subject of what we desire is human affection, connection, or love, then we call this feeling loneliness. For example, if we lose or don’t get affection from a friend or lover, we can consciously or unconsciously believe “That would have made me happy, and now I can’t be as happy”, and this creates loneliness.
