Your emotions control the quality of your life experience.
Want to feel peaceful, happy and successful ALL the time?
This article will show you ‘why’ you aren't (if not) and what you can do about it, or how to immediately improve the quality of your emotions and life experience.
Research has shown that most of our ‘emotional’ experiences are based on "false" perceptions. In other words you experience life according to the ‘meaning’ you give to life events, not what is actually happening.
In other words the personal meaning you give to any life experience is what gives you the emotional experience of peace, happiness and success.
Your ‘False’ Emotional Nature
How you respond to events in life is a reflection of how you think and feel about yourself and others at an inner level.
Another way to say this, “You experience life as you are, not as it is."
Fascinating research findings show that every image or thought is anchored to an emotional feeling state.
This means that your mind has a mental model or map that controls how you feel and think about everything based upon predisposed mental and emotional habits you either inherited, or were conditioned with at a very early age.
Certain feeling states automatically trigger certain images and vice versa. Your thoughts and emotions are wired together. Thoughts and emotions that are wired together, fire together!
