noomii Posted July 15, 2022 Share Posted July 15, 2022 I've been trying out the emotional scale for a while but I notice that often when I reach for better feeling thoughts, I don't feel the emotion that I expected to feel. Usually this happens when reaching for Contentment and higher up on the scale. It can happen lower on the scale too. If I haven't felt overwhelmed in awhile I usually don't feel anything when reaching for thoughts that I tend to feel overwhelmed about. I've been going the whole way up the scale two times at least, I think. It doesn't feel genuine at all when I sit for so long trying to find thoughts that makes me feel something. A lot of times I only get a subtle better feeling when doing that but it doesn't feel authentic. There's a lot of confusion when reaching for thoughts about Passion. I don't have any memories about feeling passion and I don't have anything I feel passionate about right now. A few days ago I thought about how I will find what I truly feel passionate about "in the future" and that worked, not sure if it was passion I felt, or just excitement. I thought about the same thing about passion the next day, but I didn't feel the same anymore. Sometimes I've skipped one emotion, it feels better doing the scale flowing with it. Maybe I've misunderstood how this actually works. Thank you 😊 Quote Mention Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
