    What’s the difference between Emotions & Feelings?
    What’s the difference between Emotions & Feelings?Emotions and feelings are often spoken of as being one and the same, and it’s easy to get them mixed up and confused. Although related, there is a difference between emotions and feelings, and they both serve us in their own unique way. So,...

    This is a great article, and another great view of how Men and Woman are created different. Like in times when both of my Wife and I have the same Emotions, we still have different Feelings. My focus can get keep us moving forward, with her drive. It makes us a great team to get through hard times.
    I remember reading a book about studies of Male and Female brains. The Female neurotransmitters were able to naturally release almost 5 times as many chemicals as a Male. This is one reason, women naturally have a "sixth sense" and can multi-task very well and Males are very focus and purpose driven.
    With her gift of awareness, it fills in so many of my gaps. I remember when my daughter was about 8 weeks old, she was coughing. My wife said we needed to take her to the doctor. To me, it sounded like a simple cough once every couple hours. Yet, my wife mentioned, "she's not making that sound she always does." I had no idea what my wife was talking about. When we got to the hospital, my doctor was diagnosed with RSV and put in the Children Hospital for over a week with machine's attached to her.
    These feelings my wife had saved my daughter life. While I would had stood analyzing the given facts at the time and gone back to sleep. I had the same emotions that night, yet I was like Spock trying to think logically at the time.

    I found your article compelling in the sense that emotions and feelings have separate sets of definitions, not interchangeable. I would add though that life tends to demonstrate a rapid fire at us and our brain requires us to act at pace. The life narrative has us develop quick and dirty sub-routines that allow us to act in real time. Sometimes the subroutines operate out loud.

    Your discussion here helps us in labeling those sub-routines into small enough pieces so that we can evaluate the outcomes. I read something the other day concerning these labels and functions that stated our limbic brain may also have limited cognitive abilities. In other words we can develop cognitive, functioning subroutines that are complex within the limbic system.

    For me, the implications were a little surreal. The implication is that even though logic would dictate something of change within us, we still must overcome the developed cognitive processes within our limbic system. I would propose this process can only be done through the processes of being able to identify the various components of the limbic subroutines.

    You articulated this well.

    #6 Hi @Brian McKenzie! Thank you for bringing the problem of the languages to the table. I grasp what you said as i have almost the same problem when explaining this differences to my students in Português (my mother tongue). In English we use the word "Feel" to express a situation or a feeling. When working with my clients and students, on the beginning, usually I ask them to not use the word feeling to express a feeling but instead use the work "sense" the feeling. It's a simple trick to make them aware that feelings are a body manifestation of emotions produced in the brain. And by saying I sense the feeling they don't immediately identify themselves with the feeling. Thank you for your input Brian. Have a wonderful day!

    #8 I am an Empath and I can feel someones sadness from across the world with out being in direct contact with them.

    So I am not mirroring anything. I get the feeling to check on people by getting their emotions and then I engage in with them

    When I do emotional clearings with people i take it on and they feel completely different as I suck the emotional right out of them and replace it it with what I generate from my heart chakra.

    This is why I have trouble with the idea of the mirror neurons and that Empaths only mirror. We do not though we can.

    I straight take on their emotions as do the thousands of Empaths I have worked with over the years.

    I definitely do not agree with the mirroring effect.

    That is an ability that an empath can use in direct engagement as a shield to keep their energy from being drained. I have been doing a lot of scientific reading over the years. Trying to better understand myself and how and why I exist the way I do and why so many others can do it too.

    An Empath will actually take the emotion as if it is theirs and will give their energy to stabilize other people.

    And Empaths tend to take on the suppressed and repressed emotions.

    When I do engage I can feel what people would be feeling if I was not holding them in stable emotional place and have had people that happen face to face too many times that it is proven it to me that I don;t mirror a thing unless I intend to. Empaths actually take it on and take it out of people.

    #5 Good morning dear friend @Ali Anani. What a pleasure to have reading my work and find it useful. From now on you can referrer to me when explaining the difference between emotions and feelings. :))). We know that to talk and explain this subjects to other is a complex task because this are complex subjects. That is why I always do my best to make simple in a way that everyone can grasp it. It works with my students and clients and now it is working with my readers. Thank you so much for your support my dear friend.

    #4 Hi @Max J. Carter - thank you for reading me. You made a very interesting question about the feelings empaths take from other people. I published a couple days ago an article about Mirror Neurons and Empathy - I live the link in case you want to read it https://www.bebee.com/producer/@emilia-ludovino/mirror-neurons-and-empathy. Mirror neurons help us to understand that the feelings empaths take from others are just a mirroring effect. Yes, we can feel (sense) the feelings of others) but the situation that initially triggered the feeling on the other person is not our trigger. So, yes we can feel them by mirroring the feelings but being aware that they're not our feelings. Imagine for instance that you love snake but your girlfriend has absolute terror of them. One day she sees one snake and becomes to have a panic attack - you do your best to help her out, but as an empath you can feel her fear and terror, etc. Though you also see the snake and you keep calm because snakes don't trigger in you the feeling of fear and terror. Hope my answer makes sense to you. Have a wonderful day.

    This is also a language problem with English. The distinction between I am and I feel get confused when most speakers ellipse key words. My students struggle with "I am sleep" because in Russian, the nominative case indicates a different connection to the verb than the genitive case indicates the connection to the gerund / adjective. I prefer the Russian, the cases tend to keep feelings / emotions mishes to a minimum.

    My friend @Emilia M. Ludovino- I have been involved so much on writing about emotions and feelings. I have searched literature so many times trying not to mix feelings and emotions. In most of my readings, I forget what I read because the differentiation wasn't even clear to the writer's mind. Now, you offer this explanation "Feelings are the next thing that happens after having an emotion, involve cognitive input, usually subconscious, and cannot be measured precisely". This is the best differentiation I have come across. Thank you Emilia. Shared

    Very cool (although unfortunate) story. The thing about H.M. remembering things unconsciously - and answering faster because of it - somehow reminded me of that scene from The Matrix when Neo enters the Source. When he asks the Architect "Why am I here?" , he gets a vague answer, and says: "You haven't answered my question". The Architect then observes: "Interesting. That was faster than the others." :-)

    @Aurorasa Sima I've always taken my memory for granted. After reading your post last night, I woke up and I can remember yesterday, and my past. The brain is quite small be to able to hold all these things I've lived, yet I'm able to recall many things vividly. These are some experiences which can trigger a flashback, like with my accident, and I'm never happy with those. It is good though that I can recall, I'm guessing because that poor man could not. Its quite interesting how medicine and science has evolved, especially when they botch a surgery. To learn sometimes we have to see things go wrong. Quite interesting. This is definitely something to thing about. #16

    @Aurorasa Sima.Thank you for sharing an insightful story.The brand recall studies often reveal two dimensions of memory or awareness; prompted and unprompted.When the researcher ask the interviewee ;What comes into your mind when I say(brand) without showing cards with names this is considered spontaneous or unprompted awareness.Memory is always associated with stimuli in two ways ,the depth of the memory and the breadth of memory .Intensive individual interviews is concerned with the depth,while group discussions provide the width.The depth is not implying probing the unconscious mind in the question what comes into ..? but is always concerned with the answers of the question Why?.Because the memory of elders is always deceptive and colored with current events,to obtain a broad understanding of a problem group discussions may be more appropriate .This doesn't mean we should not use intensive interviews,as both of them can be used consequently to reveal details or the attitudes which the interviewees themselves may be unaware of or are not able to articulate.

    #10 Thank you @Aurorasa Sima for your kind response. I am working on clarifying and elaborating and look forward to sharing my thoughts with you. I found this reference in wikipedia. I don't know how accurate the term amnesia is, but still relevant to memory, but here is that story and the name of the doctor. "Claparède performed an influential experiment demonstrating how the trauma of a painful event could be retained even if short term memory was lost.[5] His experiment involved a woman who suffered from a form of amnesia. She had all of her old memories as well as her basic reasoning skills, but the recent past was not remembered. Claparède had greeted her every day, each time she could not remember his face at all. Then during one session of the experiment, Claparède hid a pin in his hand and reached to shake the woman's hand, pricking her. The next day, sure enough, she did not remember him. But when Claparède went to shake her hand, he found that she hesitated, recognizing a threat when her memory had been severely damaged."

    so as many of you may already have detected, I have become a little obsessed with Dan Ariely's work lately.

    People start to lie when they find themselves unable to justify their actions ,their actions are no more consistent with their values and their promises to the others.People also lie when they find that their hidden beliefs and assumptions about others are not any more representing the right way to go and the right choice and that their identity and initiatives are no more consistent.When people start to lie they lose their integrity and begin to compromise or turnaround the standards they have set for themselves.

    Great subject @Sushmita Thakare Jain. It's refreshing that more people are talking about Anxiety disorder which affects many but they suffer in silence. @David B. Grinberg, thank you for tagging me and it's true... there is still a stigma attached. What's upsetting is when people prey on others with this illness by offering dime store advice. Those of us that suffer can be vulnerable but we are also fairly well informed. We can tell if someone is truly trained vs. selling us a crock of poo. We are also in tune to those who understand it from a Medical Perspective and/or from a personal perspective. Many people peddle programs that are not approved to be utilized by mainstream counselors. I'm experiencing a very tough time right now and I've had people who listen with truly good intentions and others offer advice because it's what they are selling per se. I have family members that tell me they understand and want me to feel better but get very frustrated if it messes up their day. So, we not only have the illness to combat but the guilt that we live with knowing our illness affects those around us. Sometimes it's a lose/lose. Some people feel others would be better off if they just left. I have been very moody lately, which is not like me. If I have appeared moody online, I apologize, it's not my intention to upset anyone. Her book looks interesting Sushmita, thank you for sharing. Sorry if I'm all over the place.

    #1 @David B. Grinberg I agree with what you have said. I have seen few, hiding and suffering the pain alone, hence when came across the book knew a person's life journey experience can inspire and motivate not all but few to start talking steps ahead. We cannot hope and wait for miracles but it are these small steps which will make the world a better place :)
    And dear, thank you for sharing ahead appreciate it.

    Thank you for this buzz, Sushmita, which I have shared on three hives. The issue of anxiety is one that affects countless millions of people. However, too many people whom suffer from anxiety and related mental issues also have to face a biased societal stigma regarding mental health -- especially so-called hidden or invisible mental health impairments. However, this unfortunate societal stigma is based on nothing more than myths, fears and stereotypes. This must end. Thus, the more people speak out about this publicly, the faster the societal stigma will dissipate, hopefully. cc: @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher

    #50 @Andrew 🐝 Goldman, I hope you understand I am not trying to come off as sounding mean. Your right, I try to be a positive person. I found I've tried for way too long and ignored myself. I ignored or tried to ignore what was really going on. Like a boil, slowly festering. No offense, but I don't care for Tony Robbins. I can't watch his videos. I will share by ignoring what is going on inside of us and hoping it will just pass can be dangerous. We can't fix an illness with positive affirmations. As for Medical Personel who treat this, I've been told that medication along with CBT and for some EMDR are the therapies of choice. Again, it's a process that takes quite a bit of time. It takes support of family and God willing, friends too who support you and don't expect you to just put on a smile and pretend you're OK because even smiling can be difficult when your not feeling well. Things we take for granted when healthy feel like they are out of reach. @Don 🐝 Kerr, thank my friend- back at you and looking forward to watching that black dog retreat ;-)

    Notwithstanding what I've said in my quoted buzz and with great respect to@Andrew 🐝 Goldman and @Deb 🐝 Helfrich , there is another component which needs to be included in this discussion. Prompted by the descriptions of subjective suffering and the difficulty in overcoming the affliction as contributed to by @Phil Friedman, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, @Don 🐝 Kerr, one has to appreciate the enormous influence that the formative years and the ensuing life narrative have in determining receptivity to effective intervention. I have coached many with a program combining behavioral-type therapy with a strong logotherapeutic flavor. And yes I've had successes, but also many failures. On review I've concluded that components deeply embedded in the life narrative determine the success versus the failure (and the whole range in between) of intervention. I outlined this component in a recent buzz - https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/the-neuroscience-of-change

    #43 First, Great article. I wanted to agree with what you said in your article. I took struggle with Depression in my twenties. That is for another story. What I learned from that was I could not control the circumstances in which I was blaming. Yet, it did open my eye to what I could control.
    This lead me to a feeling of conviction. Conviction brought awareness of my specific sins, habits, and attitudes in my life that needed to be changed. It was light a specific spotlight that needed help. I was no longer dependent on circumstances, because I was back in control.

    #23 Some of these comments (not yours @Praveen Raj Gullepalli) make me cry. I don't think some people realize just how sick someone is when they are in the depths of a clinical depression. Yes, seeking help is vital. Yes, meds can help to get over the hump, but they are not a cure (and I'm agreeing with those who mentioned medications), but until a person is not so ill, they aren't able to many of the positive things mentioned any more than a person who's ill from heart disease can do these things. People forget the brain is an organ, the most vital organ in the body and just like any organ it can become diseased or malfunction. We do not have control over these things. Recognizing the illness is the first step. Recovery can take months. I fully disagree that it's a person's fault. It's an illness. I wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy.

    #40 I like the quote of Henry Ford:
    If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right. After 3 years of depression that was a thought that turned my thinking around. Sense of purpose totally destroyed it. I understood that I have no time for depression. Cause I have important goals to achieve. I just share my example and those that are worldwide known. If someone made it through. It is possible. Sense of personal failure that bothers people actually could be turned into a victory. If a person realizes and believes that it's his/her own fault, then he/she could turn it around. It's impossible to change stuff that is out of our control. Better get things under our control. So we get the chance.

    Pt 2- Many people with depression lose their excitement for things they always enjoy or look forward to. It's hard to get out of bed (literally), and for many, it's a chore just to shower. Depression is complex and if it were that easy to just wish it away or think good thoughts people would not be going to Dr's, take medications that quite frankly suck and be openly admitting to it because sadly, there is still a stigma attached to depression and anxiety disorder, there is still a lack of education that this is an illness... which makes so many feel embarrassed to reach out to health professionals or their family members. People also suffer from a great amount of guilt because it's not an illness that disappears in a short amount of time, they know it affects their family members too which adds to the horrible guilt. We are far from this illness being accepted as what it is, an illness.

    22/12/2016 #40 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    Hi @Andrew 🐝 Goldman, I am suffering from depression due to anxiety, that has been hard to treat which led to clinical depression. I wish it was that easy to just think happy thoughts and it would go away. As @Don 🐝 Kerr noted below illnesses are not a result of personal failures and depression isn't either. I haven't been online a lot lately because I have not had the energy or focus to read let alone write much at all. Unless a person has truly suffered from depression (not a low feeling or sadness that comes and goes) they can't imagine how dark and hopeless life can feel. It's like being in abyss without a way out. A person's physical body suffers too. Fatigue that is hard to fight, weakness, deep body aches, and more. Pt. 1
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    22/12/2016 #39 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #35 #37 What about Parkinson's? There is a long trail of breadcrumbs suggesting that a simple change of thought - from 'the fact' that there was nothing @Gary Sharpe could do, as the doctors said he would experience inevitable decline & medication was his only hope; to his willingness to believe me when I said there were things he could do for himself that would improve his daily life. Even as he would continue to experience difficult symptoms every single day.

    Understanding that we each can utilize our mind, right now, as we are being made aware of its capabilities, does not suggest the person was at fault for causing these horrifically challenging diseases. There is no implied personal failure.

    The focus should be on 'hope' for right now, because even in the most challenging of diseases - depression being one of them - small daily concrete changes in action or THOUGHTS today, tomorrow, and each day forward based on a realistic assessment of the actual limitations of the condition, can change a person's life.

    That change in belief by a person that they can begin to trend TOWARD wellness is a revolutionary belief. They still will have the disease. Be in pain. Have a long, challenging road. Continue to need to utilize and rely on Western Medicines best practices.

    But as @Andrew 🐝 Goldman said: "The main thing here is a sense of control."

    I am not sure I completely agree with that.

    At times we react emotionally with out making a decision based on the emotional creatures are.

    A piece of music moves us to tears not because we decided to be moved, it just does because it touches the core of our being though at times we can at the conscious level make the decision to shut down or change the programming to how we react.

    Hi Leckey, excellent post. Maria Popova does a brilliant job with this review, and in a wider sense with her "Brain Pickings" site.
    I have found Dr Bessel van der Kolk's book, "The Body Keeps the Score" to be one of the most helpful in my own PTSD recovery journey.
    One aspect that stood out for me in the review, as it did when I originally read the book, was the powerful potentiality of reciprocity in healing. I can recall that times when I felt as though I was "locked" in misery, having someone there who resonantly listened and was authentically with me was like a magical balm.
    It reminds me of during my recent role as a school counsellor, I would sometimes as students if they had ever sat with an adult and talked like we had just done. The reply was always "no". What a sad reality.

    #1 Most definitely, it creates a separation in embodiment. Not just the gut reactions, those gut instincts, but proprioception - knowing where the body is in space and time. We see this when we teach the exercises that self-induce the tremors. I say, "Watch me first, so that I in turn can watch you" Many don't and I repeat it often, but, the point is that I when I watch them, I see vast levels of lack of proprioception. Some of the worst are therapists, which surprises me none at all. What a wonderful journey though, to come back to embodied being!

    Very interesting @Leckey Harrison. "But one of the most pernicious effects of trauma, Van der Kolk notes, is that it disrupts our ability to know what we feel — that is, to trust our gut feelings — and this mistrust makes us misperceive threat where there is none. This, in turn, creates an antagonistic relationship with our own bodies. " I think this is a major player that many of us may not even be aware of... the misperceptions!
