In Monday's email, I described how my client Tara was struggling in the wake of her breakup with Matt. Social media, especially, filled her with feelings of loneliness, melancholy and inadequacy.
At the end of the story, I asked questions to deepen your understanding. The answers are below:
1. What is the connection between feelings and thoughts?
The secret to life is happiness.
I want all of my clients feeling happy, positive, uplifted and optimistic every day. As they stay in this "positive" vibration, they become magnets for relationships, opportunity and money.
Too many people have stopped enjoying life. They operate from a place of overwhelm, exhaustion, anger, fear and resentment. These negative feelings--if left unattended--will poison the mind, creating a host of negative and critical thoughts.
But, there is good news: you can change your feelings and your thoughts. The secret?
First, develop awareness. How do you feel? If the feeling is “bad,” what do you need to do to take care of yourself? How can you raise your vibration?
I often advise my clients to check-in with themselves emotionally and physically throughout the day. When they are depleted, it's imperative to rest, eat, and slow down. As they take better and better care of themselves, they naturally enter in flow--where they manifest opportunities without much effort.
2. Why is it important to make yourself happy?
Learning to be happy is a skill—one that takes time and practice. While circumstances are largely outside of your control, happiness is 100% within your hands.
As you develop happiness—from the inside out-- you will naturally attract wonderful things. More friends, better job opportunities, and higher pay (as well as more loving romantic relationships) are the by-product of living in a high vibrational state.
3. Besides meditation and prayer, what are other ways to quiet your mind?
To quiet the mind and raise your vibrational frequency:
Walk in nature.
Play with animals.
Act in service to others.
Take epsom salt baths, infrared saunas and yoga classes.
Listen to music.
Eat high-quality, organic, vegetarian foods.
Travel to new places.
Until the next part of the story, I wish you much happiness and love!
