Some of you feel more crappy than happy in this New Year. I want to talk about that because when one is feeling low, happiness and all this talk about ‘forward momentum’ can make you feel even lower, isolated and questioning what is ‘wrong’ with you.
It takes a lot of courage to feel ones feelings, and to express them. Nothing is wrong with having feelings, no matter what they are. Feelings are messengers. We can talk to them, and receive guidance from them. Journal with Doubting Dave, Sad Sarah, or Unmotivated Uma. You will surprise yourself with what comes through.
Many sensitive, awake people are so attuned on an inner level to energy that it is easy to feel down more than up at times. Feelings are felt more acutely – not just ours, but those of the collective. We are also finely tuned to what our reality on a higher dimension is like, and so anything involving a lower density – fears, doubts, worries, feeling not good enough etc – is absolutely suffocating. Especially now. Especially as we enter more and more higher vibrational energy here on Earth.
It sounds like a cliche, but I highly recommend starting either a daily Happiness Jar or Gratitude Journal. It gets you on the ‘upswing’ at least once every 24 hours, rather than sinking in the down.
Just know everyone has their moments, and I try to honestly share about the downs as well as the ups. Keep on trucking, we are all in this together x
