You know, because you can know how you’re feeling. Above everything, trust this.
One can observe the contents of the mind whilst also being attentive to how one is feeling energetically/emotionally beneath. In this, you may find yourself witnessing thoughts that say one thing, while how you’re feeling is pointing to something contrary. In such circumstances, go with how you feel.
The conditioning of the mind makes it susceptible to being distortive and misleading. The voice in our head has a way of echoing what has been heard before and from others, and this may not necessarily be reflective of one’s truth. Your emotions are a better guidance system to be tuned into and using. After all, isn’t being in joy your truest desire? So why not simplify your decision making to being/doing that which is in alignment with your joy?
You cannot go wrong if you this as your north star. In fact, this is the purpose your emotions are meant to serve. Your emotions are indicative of how in alignment you are with your Higher Self/Timeline. Watch the mind without judgment, stay attentive to how you feel, and continue to lean into the better feeling. The better feeling, the higher vibration, the greater and more expansive reality, it’s all intertwined.
