Is it possible to have thoughts that cause feelings and emotions that you don’t even hear in your head or are aware of a thought behind it? I was reading in the first workbook, the model, I felt that my mind was very engaged in the material. I was feeling, I thought, very hopeful for my life but I started noticing a tightening in my chest and anxiety welling up inside of me? When I think about my life, my circumstances don’t always coincide with my thinking, feeling or emotions. It is like an underground darkness I carry around that gets louder and louder in the background, no matter what is happening.
