Updated on July 7, 2020

Joy sets goals for continuous achievement, and loves connecting with others by helping them reach their own ideals and aspirations.

What Do You Need Most?

We can each learn to influence our own emotions, and give ourselves the gifts we need.

Lists of Tricky Emotions

Below we present several checklists of emotions, designed to assist you in becoming aware of your emotional states. Many of us experience alexithymia, which is a lack of discernment concerning emotions, or an inability to recognize and describe emotions in oneself and others. These lists are designed to help you pin down what you are feeling. You will use them first when by yourself, or in "calm" circumstances, so you have less emotional clutter through which to wade. Later, after practice, you can use them to train yourself to know what you are feeling in other, "heavier" circumstances.

For More Information

Please see the end of this article for information on previous parts in this series, our qualifications, and an explanation of our approach to vision boarding.

Frustration Finding Answers

Do you find that emotions present an endless cycle of frustration as you try to identify and understand them? Hope is within reach.

How to Use the Lists Effectively

The lists are divided into three main sections, each with its own aim. There will seem to be some overlap as you work your way through these sections, but each serves its own purpose, and should be treated carefully. Each will reveal new aspects of your thinking patterns to you.

The three sections are:

  • Core emotions

  • Reactions to your home

  • Environment triggers

Using the Core Emotions List

In order to use the first list to its full extent, you should try it in a place you feel at least a little comfortable and safe. This could be the most comfortable room in your home, or some place in nature--any place that you associate with happiness, or at least neutrality. The mere act of thinking through the emotions listed below is likely to trigger unpleasant memories--and though it may trigger hopeful, happy memories as well, they are likely to be overwhelmed by the more negative sensations. So it is important to start off with as great a feeling of well-being as possible, in order to gauge your true state.

Facing the Truth

The purpose of this first list is to reveal how you feel most of the time--apart from directly negative or toxic people, or uncomfortable influences and situations. So allow yourself to relax in some quiet place, and tell yourself it's okay to feel what is true. You are allowed to see the truth about yourself and others. You are in the process of changing your life for the better, and facing the truth will help in the long run.

If you feel you are going to hurt someone by knowing or facing the truth, try asking yourself who you might be hurting by ignoring the truth. Pain is a reality, but it passes when you allow God to bring the necessary changes and healing, and stop trying to ignore the fact that you are not yet healed.

Emotions and Their Vibrations

How to Begin

Mark each emotion that you connect with strongly, or that you feel excited or "tight" over. There may be dozens, or there may be only a few. The point isn't how many, but how deeply you feel, and whether you are able to recognize these emotions. If you can acknowledge them, even just to give them a nod in passing, they will begin to reveal to you your heart's condition, and then you can begin to see what to do to get better. So go on first impressions--resist the urge to overanalyze each possibility. This is a learning experience for your use, not a test. No one else needs to see your results.

Format

I am unable at this time to provide an easily printable version of the lists, with proper checkboxes. So while I get such a version developed, you can print the article or screenshot the lists. These tables can then be marked in any way you choose. We suggest using a highlighter to mark applicable selections, or use a photo processing app to "doodle" circles around the choices.

There is no such thing as a "bad" emotion. An emotion is simply an indicator.

Emotions as Indicators

After you have been through the first list once, you can consider using it to evaluate how you feel in other, more tense situations, or around other people. This will give you further insights into your heart's thoughts. Try not to be afraid of "negative" emotions. There is no such thing as a "bad" emotion. An emotion is simply an indicator. It is how you deal with emotions that counts. Afterall, even a "positive" emotion, such as elation, can be damaging in the wrong situation (say, at a funeral). So just take them as they come, and allow your hands to mark the ones that seem to apply. Don't be afraid to make a mistake, and don't worry about understanding each one right now. Just mark the boxes. Evaluation will come later. Marking the boxes is a positive step toward healing.

Not All at Once!

Don't feel you have to take these assessments at a gulp. Take as many sessions as you need to "feel" your way through the lists. Working through a partial list is better than none.

Neurodiversity can mean that emotions are extra challenging.

Some of us experience more and deeper emotions than others, and require more time to process and understand them. This is okay.

This list is to help you pinpoint patterns that need healing, so think about what your reactions are to certain spaces--not what you meant your responses to be.

Isolated and My Inner Thoughts Are Ruining My Life, by Michele Lee Nieves

How to Not Have Self Love, by Michele Lee Nieves Coaching

Finding Triggers

These next sections have to do with evaluating which activities or feelings seem to have priority in different spaces of your home or life. The two lists below can be used either room-to-room as you explore your feelings about your home, or to get an overall impression of the emotions you feel while in your house. Spaces can become conditioned to hold emotions and memories of their own, so these lists may reveal where some house cleansing is in order. The lists can also be useful for determining triggers (both positive and negative) that are related to your everyday environment. Smells, furniture, colors, memories, and housekeeping schedules can all act as triggers. Note any others you find, and keep a record of them for your own use.

For purposes of dividing positive and negative, we decided that if an emotion is not overtly destructive, it is positive.

Dissociation Can Be a Robber

Having gaps in your life and memory can be both a blessing and a curse. It is okay to grieve those times, and grieve too the pain that caused them.

Emotional Flashbacks if Stuck in Fight/Flight | Dissociation Part Two, by Michele Lee Nieves

What Are Your Emotions Telling You?

Learning to feel and identify emotions can be a complex, but rewarding challenge. Once you realize they are clues to your inner thoughts, you can begin to find balance and healing.

Self Assessment

How did the process work for you? In order to get an overall sense of your emotions, look back over the lists and note which kinds of things come up over and over again. These are your core emotions and thoughts.

Chances are they are not usually positive. For now, simply note them and keep this record of your results. You will put it to good use soon, when you begin using it to establish a list of fears to overcome using the visualizing techniques we've been practicing throughout this series.

10 Steps--Self Love Habits That Changed My Life After Narcissistic Abuse, by Michele Lee Nieves

What Music Do You Hear in Everything?

Emotions color our perceptions of life. With what sort of music do you hear or listen to the things and people around you?

Topics Previously Covered in This Series

In Part 1, we explore why fear inhibits our ability to know what we really want, and act on it. Our thought loops often hold the key to realizing our deepest desires. Focusing on and owning these thought loops can allow us to move forward, first making the decision that fear will no longer own us.

In Part 2, we cover the basics of how to develop a vision board, whether in an electronic or physical format. We offer prompts and resources to help you decide what you truly want out of life.

In Part 3, we discuss the role of bio rhythms in setting intentions which yield pleasant fruit. When you pair your firm and detailed expectations with careful timing, cooperation from others and the Universe often results.

In Part 4, we pinpoint how to choose the perfect visuals and images for your needs, decode your personal color associations, and use past regrets and misunderstandings to help you go forward more wisely.

In part 5, we explore the decisions to be made while setting up an Intentions-by-the-Month system, using a Pinterest Board or other format of your choice. This system allows you to form a habit of setting intentions daily, or on whatever schedule you choose.

In Part 6, we walk through how to set up a long term life plan of 5 to 10 years, using either a vision board format, a mind map, or a combination of these two systems.

In Part 7, we acknowledge that manipulation and painful circumstances can make it difficult to know who you are and what you want, then present emotional and mental exercises to help you overcome the gaslighting or conditioning of others.

Our Conditions and Qualifications

In case you missed our intro before, we are an autistic DID System who have spent years exploring how trauma affects our ability to live our best life and act on our deepest needs. We have no official diagnosis, and no legal qualifications to offer advice or training on mental health conditions. Conversely, we have a decade of experience managing our Dissociative Identity Disorder, as well as about four years working to understand our autism.

Our Approach to Vision Boarding

Because fear is such a huge roadblock to stability and satisfaction, we have chosen to approach the topic of vision board development by exploring how it can be used to assist in healing and changing trauma patterns. We specifically use it to overcome fear and other trauma responses.
