Throughout your day-to-day life, you encounter many different
feelings, but maybe you didn’t realize that your happy, peaceful
feelings are already there at your core. Just like the Sun is
always there, but on a cloudy day you can’t see it, your happiness
is underneath all your “cloudy” thinking, believing, or reacting. In
order to connect with your happiness/your soul, you need to clear
away the cloudiness of your dark mood so you can feel that
sunshine! So, when you are in a low mood, there are several steps
to take to connect to your soul and feel that happiness once again:

  • FEEL the negative feeling by accepting it, but not
  • reacting to it.
  • RELEASE the negative feeling. Let it pass through you by
    acknowledging it.
  • PAUSE. Wait until the negative feeling has passed, before
    making decisions.
  • FOCUS on more positive thoughts.
  • ASK & LISTEN to yourself. You will know what to do, if

Although you may want to solve problems when you are in a low
mood, it is not the best time. The best time to solve a problem
is when you are in a high mood because at that time, you are
connected to the wisdom of your soul and the solutions will come
more easily.

It is common to want to ignore negative feelings. Accepting and
honoring sadness, anger, grief, frustration, fear, worry, and
doubt may seem like a negative thing to do, but actually it is not.
Feelings are the language of the soul. When you are experiencing
these feelings, it can be one of your greatest teachers. Your
soul knows the path to a fulfilling life. Your emotions are the tool
that you were born with to help you create a life you are happy
with. Therefore, it is very important to pay attention to what
you are feeling.

Try to think of feelings as a spectrum, with JOY or LOVE at the
very top of the spectrum and SHAME or FEAR at the very
bottom of the spectrum. When you are spiraling down toward
negative feelings, you are not in connection with your soul,
therefore you are not in that moment on the way to creating
fulfillment. When you are spiraling upward toward positive
feelings, you are in connection with your soul, so you are on the
path to creating fulfillment in your life.

You may be asking, “Why should I feel negative emotions if those
negative emotions mean I am on the “wrong” path?” The best way
to relieve yourself of negative feelings and get back on the path
to happiness is to actually begin with feeling the feeling, without
reacting to it. Then, once you are connected again to your
soul/your happiness, you will receive the best guidance. The
guidance will come in the form of words to say or something to do.

A good way to connect to your happiness within is by doing some
