Can we have feelings before thoughts?

I have recently stumbled upon Mastin Kipp’s work and he says that we have feelings before thoughts. I thought that as well before finding scholars but then I believed I was wrong and that our thoughts actually create our feelings… but… just to confuse me even more.. Brooke talks about experiencing anxiety without a thought to precede it so now I am thoroughly confused as to what the Life Coach School’s stance is on this subject. If we can have anxiety without a preceding thought then I think Mastin is correct that we can have feelings before thoughts…right? But Brooke tells people that the thought has to come first so… I don’t understand. I just want some clarification around this. Thank you.
