We define a belief as a thought you continue to think. In other words, whatever you are focused upon, thinking about, speaking about, observing, remembering, or contemplating- whether it is about your past, present or future- that thought- vibration is active right now. And your emotions are giving you, in the moment feedback of how that current active thought is blending with the perspective of your inner being. When your current thought is not resonating with you what your Inner being knows about the subject, your negative emotion indicates the disharmony. And because you are often not aware of your emotional guidance, you do not realize that you could shift your focus and improve the way you feel, most instead continue the discordant thought and then feel bad and blame the object of your attention.
