When logic, plan and conditions indicate that you should act but you don't feel this action do you act?
But when it feels like it is inspirational action, the chain of events, the repeating of names and events that you must act but yet your feelings say NO, and due to the repeating indications from universe you act but as your feelings are not there the results wouldn't come as the expectations or there are no results at all.
Do you think that it was really inspirational actions but negative feelings ruin their consequences?
Then when I should depend on my feelings and when not?
Isn't feeling good accompanied with inspirational actions and isn't feeling right create the inspiration in acting, thinking and so on??
An example: I was working on a business deal and I got a visit from a customer who match this field of business but I didn't feel that this person could be cooperative but as I was thinking of customer and he appeared I talked with him about my deal, he said I will reply back, and he didn't as I didn't feel his cooperation. Two days after I was asked about a contract which again linked me to that old same guy, so I thought maybe this is the person universe is delivered me to my old deal and yet I didn't call him, I said I will call him, and when I did all the time his number was busy and I stopped ringing.
Are my feelings which are creating this person or another to be non cooperative (I created the busy number) as it seems to me that I am repeating my self in this deal, even I am still feeling that this guy is not cooperative :) or should I create the non cooperative to be cooperative?
Or should I quit thinking, deciding this time as I am nervous somehow and let the universe to do his work as I am really thinking of distract myself a little bit, Abraham plan.
Another question how can I balance between distraction and affirmations which I like doing so much.

You might be overthinking this a bit.
When you don't know what action to take but you feel like you want to take some action, then just take any action whether it's inspired or not.
Holding yourself in a state of indecision because you fear doing the wrong thing is far worse for you than actually doing the wrong thing :)
So, in that case, any decision is a good decision...which implies that any action is a good action.
The reason for this is that once you have made a definite decision, you've started an energy flow through yourself which has momentum. Making a decision starts the life-force energy pulsing through you, and that energy flow will enable you to sense a definite feeling regarding the decision you have made i.e. the action you have just started taking.
Now once you have a definite feeling going about the action you are taking, it now makes it easier to decide whether the action you are taking is the best-feeling action at this moment or whether another one feels better.
If another one starts to feels better than the one you are currently doing, do that one instead until you eventually feel that yet another different action is the best one to do, because it feels better.
I hope you can see that by adopting this approach, you are using each action to propel you towards an even-better-feeling action and then an even-better-feeling action and then an even-better-feeling action...and so on.
Eventually this series of, perhaps seemingly-random, actions will have propelled you into a state of inspiration where you can clearly feel that each succeeding action is truly inspired.
But notice that the action you may have originally started doing may not be the one that this chain of actions eventually leads you into doing. Using this approach, the actual actions themselves are secondary - it is the feeling state that doing each action elevates you towards that is important.
So, to sum up, when in doubt choose any action and that decision to act will start a chain of events that will lead to a positive outcome, if you keep choosing the next best-feeling action to do in any moment.
To give you another perspective on this action-based approach, here is one of my favorite Bashar quotes...
--------------- Richard Bach, "Illusions"
This Teaching is very simple. Follow your Joy. Move in the direction of your greatest Excitement/Joy/Happiness.
Do what you feel good about, not what you "ought to do."
As you begin to consciously overlay this beief pattern, you will see a whole new world unfolding. AND you will also realize that the ALL joys, the true joys, the joyful manifestations have ALL come because you did this in your past.
We have all been following this Teaching all our lives, we are becoming more effective as we allow it into conscious awareness and replace dysfunctional belief systems.
