How do you get from guts to deep/base emotion/instinct?

Right now I’m having a visceral reaction. My life has been upended. It’s my own fault. I’m the only one to blame, but still it’s all based on my instincts, on my basic emotions. I’m lost without the Venatori. I knew I would be when I did it. I would give anything to have a schedule right now. Anything.
