There are so many things to do in life, so many things to take care of, all those responsibilities and on top of that, you have to worry about this and that…
But, you know what, there is only really one thing you absolutely need to take care of and it’s to feel as good as possible. We do all sorts of things all day long, but we hardly spend 5 minutes to consciously get into the vibration of feeling good.
However, feeling good is the core of everything, it’s the most important thing you can do, it’s the missing piece of the puzzle….
But, wait a minute – just feeling good? Sure, it would be nice, but what could this possibly change, how would this help me to sort out all of my problems…?
You know, most people have it completely backwards. They say, first I need to sort out this, then I have to accomplish that and of course, along the line I will also need to take care of all of my problems…
BUT, when all of that is done, I will be happy and I will feel really great.
Yes, we all know how well this usually works. By spending 90% of your time focusing on all sorts of problems, you will only create more problems. Yes, over time you may become real master in creating problems and solving them afterwards, but is this really satisfying?
Ok, why did I say, most people have it backwards? It is because they think if they only do this and that to get rid of problem A, B, C… they will find joy and happiness.
No, of course, it’s the other way round. First, you need to get into a state of joy, happiness and feeling good and all the things you don’t like so much in your life (your problems) will start disappearing, because they are no longer an energetic match to your “feeling good” vibration.
Everything in life is energy and everything you encounter “out there” – the various circumstances and events in your life – are nothing but a reflection of your inner energy, the way you feel, your state of being.
Feeling good and being joyful is an energy that will be reflected as corresponding experiences in your daily life. And, the same way, being constantly focused on your problems is an energy that will be experienced in form of different circumstances and life events.
Please don’t misunderstand me, I don’t have anything against “problems”, because they allow us to grow like nothing else. But, you could also look at “problems” as exciting challenges and that’s of course an entirely different energy, which will create entirely different circumstances in your life.
Do everything you can to feel as good as possible
All that really counts is how you feel most of the day and you should always “try and work” towards feeling as good as possible. If you can’t go to feeling great from where you are right now, try at least to feel a little bit better and then again, a little bit better… just keep on walking up that emotional letter, one little step after another.
Your feelings and emotions are what creates your universe. Your thoughts provide the direction and they are like the spark that ignites the fire. However, thoughts without any emotional power behind them are not strong enough to create anything.
And yes, it may look like we create by taking action, but that’s not entirely true. If there is a lack of “feeling-power”, you can take massive action your entire life without really getting anywhere. And, that’s actually what lots of people are doing, just look around.
By feeling great, passionate, excited… you create an energy whirlwind “inside” of you and you will start taking action, simply because you will want to express this energy within you, to let it out… and things will take shape.
…And that’s why you need to focus as much as possible on feeling good. Make it a habit. Take a break here and “do the work” to shift your energy towards feeling slightly better. Do it again and again and your old universe will start to crumble, while a new one that is more aligned with your “feeling good” energy will be created.
Now comes the big question: How do you shift your energy to feel slightly better?
Please remember, you won’t go from a state of being depressed to being happy and feeling absolutely great. Although, under certain circumstances it could be possible, typically it won’t happen.
You will move upwards in little steps every day – just feeling a little bit better and then again, a little bit better… You will be amazed, how far you can go in only 2 or 3 months.
Here are some tips to help you moving up the emotional ladder:
- Tell a better story. Just close your eyes and spend a few minutes (or as long as you want) doing some daydreaming. Visualize your progress, imagine all the things you will be doing 3 months, 6 months, 1 year… from now. Visualize, imagine and feel. Don’t exaggerate, tell a story you can believe right now, a story that simply feels good to you…
- Learn to control your thoughts. As you know, negative thoughts lead to negative feelings. So, you need to catch those negative thoughts and replace them with more positive ones before you enter a spiral of negative thoughts and feelings.
- Appreciate and enjoy the good things in your life. Be grateful for what you have.
- Find joy in simple things. Whenever there is a possibility to move into the vibration of joy, do it. Consciously enjoy and embrace the feeling and stay with it for as long as possible.
- As often as possible throughout the day, close your eyes for a few minutes, use a few affirmations that will help you to get into the right energy and do a bit of daydreaming.
Make it a habit to do a bit of “telling a better story” and daydreaming every day. This may sound simplistic, but it really works. You will see, if you do it several times a day for only a few minutes, you will already vibrate much higher – in other words, you will feel much better – after only 2 weeks.
