Feeling Wheel

I am not sure when I was introduced to a “feeling wheel,” but in the last few months, I was given a feeling wheel at a meditation class, and a college professor discussed how counselors use them to help clients find words to explain how they feel. For Valentines Day, my wife and I gave each of our college-age kids a “feeling wheel.” Dr. Gloria Wilcox is believed to have developed the “feeling wheel. Here is a brief document with a “feeling wheel” description by Dr. Wilcox, including an exercise.

Below are two feeling wheels, the first published by The Gottman Institute and the second by Geoffrey Roberts.

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
