For simplicity and clarity, I will present the scale of emotions that corresponds with the levels of Consciousness described by David R. Hawkins. As you deepen this information you get more clarity on feelings, and it is recommended to organise well from the beginning.

See below the basic scale of emotions, starting from Peace as the higher energy down to the lowest Shame:

Peace (600): This is experienced as perfection, bliss, effortlessness, and oneness. It is described as Illumination and Enlightenment. It is rare in the human realm.

Joy (540): Love that is unconditional and unchanging, despite circumstances and actions of others. The world is illuminated by exquisite beauty, which is seen in all beings and all things.
The perfection of creation is self-evident. There is compassion for all, enormous patience with others and a concern for their happiness.

Love (500): A way of being that is forgiving, nurturing, and supportive. It does not proceed from the mind; rather, it emanates from the heart. Love focuses on the essence of a situation, not the details. It deals with wholes, not particulars.
There is not much rationality at this level. These people live by their feelings. They are very sensitive and caring, with a very high level of empathy.

Reason (400): There is the ability to see things in the abstract, to conceptualise, to be objective, and to make rapid and correct decisions. Its enormous utility is problem solving. Science, philosophy, medicine, management, and logic are expressions of this level.
For those who vibrate at this level thought is the way of being. Everything need to be processed linearly by the mind and need to make sense.

Acceptance (350): This energy is easy-going, laid back, harmonious, flexible, inclusive, and free of inner resistance. “Life is good. You and I are good. I feel connected.” It meets life on life’s terms. There is no need to blame others or blame life.

Willingness (310): This energy subserves survival by virtue of a positive attitude that welcomes all expressions of life. It is friendly, helpful, wants to assist, and seeks to be of service.

Neutrality (250): This is a way of life that is comfortable, pragmatic, and relatively free of emotionality. “It’s okay either way.” It is free of rigid positions, non-judgmental, and non-competitive.

Courage (200): This energy says, “I can do it.” It is determined, excited about life, productive, independent, and self-empowered. Effective action is possible.

Pride (175): “My way is the best way,” says this level. Its focus is achievement, desire for recognition, specialness, and perfectionism. It feels “better than …” and superior to others.

Anger (150): This energy overcomes the source of fear by force, threats, and attack. It is irritable, explosive, bitter, volatile, and resentful. It likes to “get even,” as in “I’ll show you.”

Desire (125): It is always seeking gain, acquisition, pleasure, and “getting” something outside oneself. It is insatiable, never satisfied, and craving. “I have to have it.” “Give me what I want and give it to me now!”

Fear (100): This energy sees “danger,” which is “everywhere.” It is avoidant, defensive, preoccupied with security, possessive of others, jealous, restless, anxious, and vigilant.

Grief (75): There is helplessness, despair, loss, regret, and the feeling, “If only I had …” Separation. Depression. Sadness. Being a “loser.” Mournful, as in “I can’t go on.”

Apathy (50): This energy is characterised by hopelessness, playing dead, being a “drain” to others, being immobilised, and the feelings: “I can’t” and “Who cares?” Poverty is common.

Guilt (30): In this energy field, one wants to punish and be punished. It leads to self-rejection, masochism, remorse, “feeling bad,” and self-sabotage. “It’s all my fault.” Accident-proneness, suicidal behaviour, and projection of self-hatred onto “evil” others are common. It is the basis of many psychosomatic illnesses.

Shame (20): Characterised by humiliation, as in “hanging your head in shame.” It is traditionally accompanied by banishment. It is destructive to health and leads to cruelty toward self and others.

In general, we can say that the lower end of the scale is associated with lower vibration frequencies: lower energy, lower power, poorer life circumstances, poorer relationships, less abundance, less love, and poorer physical and emotional health.
As we let go of negative feelings, there is a progressive movement up the scale with increasing effectiveness, success, and more effortless abundance.
