Science confirms subjective feelings as sensations in the body

A study, by Finnish researchers, mapping subjective feelings in the body appeared in the top journal of scientific publication, PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Science).  The scientists compared data from 1,026 participants and how they experience different feelings and states. It is assumed that each experience is completely unique and individual, so my experience of a happy feeling or an anxious thought will be purely my own and won't translate to your experience. That's why we say feelings are subjective, embodied differently by each subject. However, the scientists found similarities in the reported bodily sensation of different categories of feelings. This means that feelings actually live in certain parts of the body, regardless of individual and further strengthens the scientific evidence for very strong mind-body connection. Exactly what we want to help you explore and document for yourself!
