Shifting my mood again….and again….and yes, again

Positive Vibration

When I am feeling out of sorts, I try to reach for things that I know will make me feel better almost instantly. I do keep a list of things that will turn my mood around, unless it is just one of those times that I need to just *be* with my crappy feelings. One of those things is music. There are songs that make me feel good that I listen to, or I just start humming any sound I feel like. Music puts me on a positive vibration. I can be feeling horrible, but as soon as I listen to certain music, I feel better.

Crying easily!

A friend sent me this video, and I think it is so beautiful that I wanted to share it with you! I cry easily when I hear or see  something beautiful, so this brought tears to my eyes. It really is amazing how music affects us. It is wonderful to just be with music, and let our bodies feel the vibration. Just humming a tune helps me feel good. It really feels good. It is an instant mood booster!

Here is the lovely video I would like to share. Enjoy!

It’s okay to feel crappy!

I also want to point out that it is okay to feel crappy sometimes. Yes, there are ways to shift it, but only if it really needs to be shifted. One thing I am working on learning is that I don’t always have to try to shift my mood. I am learning to just allow my emotions and moods. This is one of those things that is an on-going practice. My habit in the past has been to try to make the bad mood go away, or to find something to blame it on. I have learned that when I try to find something to blame it on, it makes me feel worse because then I send the message to myself that something is wrong with me. If I feel depressed, I have taught myself to feel like I am failing. Something must be wrong with me if I can’t change the way I feel. These are all part of those thoughts and beliefs that just aren’t true. There is nothing wrong with feeling strong negative emotions. The problem comes in when we allow those conditioned beliefs to take a hold on us. This becomes a vicious cycle. We feel depressed, so we start beating ourselves up by getting sucked into the conditioned beliefs and thoughts that something must be wrong if we are feeling depressed. I try to remind myself that it is okay to feel bad sometimes! It really is part of being human. The more I allow my strong negative stuff to express itself, the longer I go between times of feeling depressed.
