Hi and welcome. From what ive seen in children (i did some assistant teachering at UCLA and work in special education) children at that age are trying to put a label on what they mean and her saying her feelings are telling her is the same as saying i feel. Children at that age tend to associate more with there minds than their bodies and still getting to know how things work. It seems only as we age do we become body and mind into one entity.
You should ask her why she feels this way about not loving you and throwing the teddy away. It could be she is starting to realize that she has options.
Realizing that one has options can be a awaking experience.
If your worried please see a child specialist to confirm she is ok

Sit back and smile. Children go through the most perplexing phases. I think it has to do with developing intellectually. They try out ideas. I remember doing this myself.
