How To Feel Good Every Day Even When Circumstances Aren’t What You’d Prefer

 

There are many things in life that challenge us, like relationships, work, money issues, family, regret, or serious health problems. No matter what is going on in our world we always have a choice in the way we respond and react. Our response to events is what makes our day feel successful and good, or experience pain and suffering. When we are able to look at everything through the eyes of love everything improves.

Choosing to stay in an upward spiral of positive vibes will allow you to experience happiness even when situations can be challenging. The following tips and tricks will help to steer you:

  1. Take a deep breath, in fact, take several deep breaths each hour. Breathing allows us to step fully into the present and ground ourselves. When I work with people in person I witness their expressions when they are recounting old pain. They inevitably hold their breath. Holding your breath keeps you stuck in the paradigm of pain and suffering. To release the pain breathe deeply. Allow what is happening to flow through you rather than hold it inside. Breathing deeply and exhaling slowly and completing allows you to release stress, pain, and emotions easily. Know it will pass.
  2. Take the high road. We might not understand the reason we experience all that we do, trust that there is a higher purpose at work that is organizing your life for you. If a relationship ends, know that something better is on its way. If you lose your job, there is something better coming that suits you far better than the one you were in. If someone dies, celebrate his or her life and recognize what gifts he or she gave you. Grief will pass, but rather than living in regret for what you didn’t do, recognize the good that occurred.
  3. Always look up. Runners in training are always taught to keep their eyes on the road ahead for a reason because when they look down they can stumble and fall. Looking down we see boulders and pitfalls, dirt and problems. When walking down the road of life it is easy to wallow in self-pity and a woe is me attitude. Self-pity keeps us in suffering as well as repeating our old story. Looking inward we see blue skies, sunlight or the moonlight at night. The stars always shine even in the daytime. Turning your focus up allows you to see the possibilities rather than the tragedy.
  4. Witness rather than react. As we begin to awaken certain people can continue to push our buttons. Those closest to us seem to be the ones that push our buttons easily. My mother used to ask me in a tone that would set my teeth on edge, “Do you have a job? Are you saving money?” I used to feel I couldn’t be around my family because they didn’t “get me.” She didn’t ask me if I was enlightened or self-realized those things didn’t concern her. As I became more grounded and solid in who I was and more layers cleared I began to see the gift in my mother and all that she had given to me over the years. Perhaps they do speak the truth. Watch to see if you move into an emotional reaction. Are you reacting to the present moment? Or is the person triggering something from your old story? The way to tell the difference is to ask yourself, “Have I felt this way before? When was it? Who was involved, was it my mother, father or someone else?” Asking ourselves these questions allows us to decipher what is happening inside us where old buttons and triggers have been installed in childhood. Until the triggers are released, we continue to react rather than be the witness.
  5. Find your inner stillness. Rushing, multitasking, cell phones and computers can take us away from ourselves. Sitting in silence even for ten minutes a day without answering a text, e-mail or being on social media will allow you to turn inward and silence the craziness of the world. If you can’t silence the mind chatter, use a mantra to give your mind something to do. Any positive phrase can serve to quiet the monkey mind. Feed your soul.
  6. Stay rather than run away. Conflict can make us afraid. Running away from conflict doesn’t resolve anything. Not everyone awakens at the same time. If your mate isn’t as evolved as you, it doesn’t mean you have to leave them, they are offering a different perspective and gifts for you. Check inside to see if what they are saying resonates with you. Look at the situation from the other person’s perspective. If we feel fear, perhaps they are also afraid of us. Only when we allow ourselves to see the other perspective to find compassion can we have peace in all our relationships. Running away from a situation doesn’t bring resolution. If we don’t resolve the differences we have with one person, the issue will resurface with another. If we can’t seem to find a middle ground try apologizing. It is amazing how the other person softens when we say we are sorry for what we said or did, hearts open and worlds unite.
  7. Think before speaking. Once words are out of our mouth we can’t take them back. Even after we apologize for saying something hurtful to another, the sting remains. Some things we think we don’t need to say out loud. If you are unsure of whether you should say something, take the high road and take a deep breath instead. Telling someone they are an idiot or an asshole can have long-standing results we regret later.
  8. What we fear we attract. If we have an inner conflict, we also find conflict in our outer world. If we have a fear of intimacy, we attract others with the same issue. If we find others are angry, we have anger inside us we never acknowledged before. For years, I had healers tell me that I was angry, yet I couldn’t see it or feel it. I was in denial of what was true but kept attracting angry rageful men. Once I acknowledged my own internal anger over the past and stood up to the angry men in my world, it all dissolved. Part of the issue was my fear of angry rageful men. If we fear something, we continue to attract it like a magnet. We can use fear as our compass
  9. Find compassion. When we have compassion for ourselves we become more loving and understanding, we stop beating ourselves up and recognize we are a work in progress. With compassion the world is sweeter, we feel better. When we stop magnifying our mistakes with a magnifying glass we recognize that we aren’t perfect and that’s okay. The more compassion we have for ourselves, the less striving we do then we move into a state of flow, allowing things to happen rather than forcing or pushing our energy. With compassion, we soften our view of ourselves, the world and everyone around us. Compassion is a loving act that is like a fountain flowing back into itself. Until we have compassion we can’t recognize love. Compassion fills us to overflowing and that is a good thing.
  10. Know this will pass. No matter what is happening it is temporary. Governments change, people leave, jobs change, clients heal, we age and people die. Today it may be rainy but tomorrow the sun will shine again. Nothing stays the same. Clinging to the past doesn’t make it stay, it keeps us from enjoying what is happening right now. The more fluid or accepting we can be, the easier life becomes. The more rigid we are the more easily we break. Notice how many of the elderly become stiff, rigid and brittle their bones break easily they become set in their ways and upset when things change. We need to be like a bowl of Jell-O moving and adjusting to the world as it shifts. Be the Jell-O!
