I'm not at all sure of the differences and relations between feelings and emotions. I do, however, tend to think (right now as a working hypothesis) of feelings as body sensations which are given meaning when developed into language/idea-grounded emotions. When I feel fear it is usually in the form of butterflies in the stomach area and anger is usually felt as a burning sensation in my nose area (almost like the sensation caused by wasabi). Sometimes I cannot know precisely what I am emoting but I can usually tell what my body is feeling. Identifying its emotional correlate is another matter. Am I wrong to conclude that feelings are usually conscious or preconscious while emotions are predominantly (but not always) subconscious in nature?
