Emotions and Feelings Charts
(For more help with managing emotions see “Changing your Mind with the Wheel of Awareness!”)
Please use these charts to help you to identify what emotions and feelings you are experiencing at any given time. Knowing what you feel is validating in and of itself and being able to communicate what you are feeling to others moves you closer to being understood, which is an intimacy need we all have.
To that point, a simple “Emotional Self-Awareness Card” that I provide for visitors to use with others to help with communication is:
In 3 minutes or less, share these 3 things:
- My Thinking: “What I am thinking about is…”
- My Feelings: “What I am feeling about this is..”
- Going Forward: “Going forward, I’m going to…” or, “Going forward, what I’d like for you to consider is…”
In conclusion, being able to talk about your thoughts, feelings and what you are going to do constructively in light of your self-awareness creates clarity, empowerment and direction. Click here if you’d like to read about eight specific emotions and what you can do about them.

I love that you’re posting this information and these helpful images. May I get your permission to use the Feelings Wheel in my ebook to help parents and children improve their relationships? A big part of it is learning to talk about emotions and I think this visual would be very helpful.
Thank you so much for this information and images. I struggle with the loss of my daughter and have been working thru the christian based Grief Share program. while doing research for the program and working on an art piece to express my thoughts and emotions i came across this post.
God is working thru you to reach his believers during their times of crisis. Thank you for opening a door for me.
