A feeling is an “emotional” state. Feelings are energies which literally engulf a person by 1) pulling the auric field close around them like a fence 2) becoming the dominant note or color in the auric field. This is then 3) accompanied by a change in temperature. The RED flush of anger. The BLUE chill of indifference, distance, etc.
Emotions are aptly named because once in the aura they compel one to make a move. Feelings are also called PSYCHIC PUSHES as they instigate action. Feelings are FAST (recall the Agents in the Matrix movie??) as they are signal modifications born from the instinctive survival level of the personal subconscious NOT the slower process of mental cognition related to ordinary thought or beta brainwaves. As brainwave frequency “feelings” can be classed with the Lambda brainwave which is actually a “wave rider” attaching itself to slower brain frequencies. One is taken up and “swept away” on emotion’s tides.
Feelings also “pull” or attract circumstances to the auric field related to or harmonious with their frequencies. However people are not only moved by their own personal feelings but are subject to feelings emanating from the group which blow like winds to ripple as waves troubling the stormy seas of humanity. Like attracts like. Anger attracts situations to the FEELER just as fear does.
Be mindful of language as the worded concept feeling” differs from sensation which is based in the 5 TACTILE senses.

People have the right to reach up or down, to grasp the lightning bolts of heaven or hell. One can decide to allow the fires of passionate Divine Rage to blaze but know they are HOT, HOT, HOT with a heat which feeds upon the “Life Force/Chi ” in mortal men. ” Our god is a consuming fire” refers to the emotions which are connected to the subconscious levels of existence. This is why various rituals of appeasement or cooling down are found in cultures worldwide.
Divine indifference or apathy is COLD as ice and like cold packs applied to a sprain preserves human cell structure by extending battery life. On chill the push buttons and emotional triggers are deactivated. One may act but without a spark of immediacy starting an emotional wildfire. When one chooses the cold blue flame one gains TIME by engaging in mental calculation and applying intellectual strategy.
All have free will to choose the red or the blue pill, to decide whether to act on emotions or formulate plans. Never go to the Cross roads in the lukewarm afterglow of physical arousal to hangout or stand about. Where roads cross one must decide.
