The Secret of Emotions – The Spiritual Roots of Our Hidden Motivations
The Secret of Emotions by Justice Saint Rain is a helpful guide to understanding the connection between our emotional sensations, and our experience of virtues. Since most of our decisions are motivated more by our emotions than our intellect, understanding the messages emotions are sending will have a profound impact on the rest of your life.
If following your heart has repeatedly gotten you into trouble, but to follow your head feels like a kind of soul-death, then this book will open up a whole new world of possibilities for you. It will teach your head how to understand the language of your heart, and teach your heart how to speak the language of God by explaining the connection between our emotional sensations and the Divine virtues that we long for.

The Secret of Emotions was life changing. It is full of revelations and answers to emotions felt when you are too close to the situation to discover. After reading this book I purchased The Power of Focusing and have plans to read the remainder of Justice Saint Rain books. This is a book that I will revisit.

“Wonderful book! I love the way you are always so REAL, open and honest. You expose yourself so that all of us are free to see that we all have the same emotions and feel the same things. After reading this book I had a profound sense of RELIEF! I began to understand my feelings and why I do some of the things I do now or have in the past. I think you are incredibly courageous and your insight into human nature extraordinary. Thank you for being such a pure and hollow reed of God’s blessings to us. You are an artist, a poet and a healer. With gratitude, Kathy”

“The Secret of Emotions is as readable as Falling Into Grace, but rather than focusing on Baha’i matters it is of a more universal nature. Justice has tapped into some previously overlooked basic truths about emotions in general and “love” in particular. The insights have helped me immensely. This book is ideal for virtually everyone who has ever been through any kind of emotional turmoil. The only reader I can imagine not being happy with this book is someone who is allergic to the word “God” … and even then I think I would give it to him if he were in a lot of emotional pain, and would just hope for the best.”

“If you have not yet read this book, you MUST! It is AMAZING! It is like 500 counseling sessions in one. It is all about how we misinterpret emotions because of society and our experiences as children, how emotions are intimately connected to virtues, and that to heal emotionally and grow spiritually we need to “fill the empty places in our lives with Divine virtues.” Obviously easier said than done (which is fully admitted to in the book). It’s only 71 pages – dense with information, but a quick read – MORE than worth the price! It is an extremely enlightening and inspiring book with valuable insights and guidance for healing emotionally and growing spiritually. It has completely opened my eyes to my own motivations and how my emotions have influenced my life choices in the past. I am seriously amazed at the insights this book has provided – like how perpetuated societal misunderstandings of emotions play such a major subconscious and self-destructive role in the majority of peoples’ lives, whether they know it or not. If you couldn’t tell, I HIGHLY recommend this book. Happy reading!”

“I read the first page and bought 5 more books to give as gifts! I couldn’t put it down and am anxious to re-read it. I think everyone needs this book! It is probably one of the most powerful self-help books I’ve ever read.”

[From a FaceBook comment] I just read the first book of the trilogy, and wow! As a student of psychology (and Baha’i) who hopes to go into psychotherapy, this book gave me so many insights into why counseling can be so ineffective for many clients. In my own experience, therapy just seemed to skim the surface and superficially explain the reasoning behind my emotions. This helped me fill in many of the missing pieces in my quest to better understand the human psyche and someday be able to help others. Thank you and I look forward to reading more!!
