In Case Of Vibrational Emergency
What to do when it seems nothing’s going right?
When you feel on the verge of tears if something doesn’t go your way soon?
Well, that might be time for a good cry.
Just let’r rip.
Feeling the feelings is often the best way through.
But if it feels like you can turn things around before the funk gains momentum, and you’re looking for immediate vibrational relief, here’s a curated list for turning the mood around.
This is not a replacement for the work of shifting beliefs or learning to tame gremlin thought patterns.
But it can be a way to break the spell of a temporary dark cloud.
And that’s all it takes to give yourself a head start to feeling better …
Best of Craigslist
For good distraction that requires minimal but still entertaining sifting, peruse the best of Craigslist as chosen by Craigslist readers.

The Good Vibe U facebook page has a nice collection of videos designed to make you smile. If you’re in a funk, scroll right on by the spiritual stuff to get straight to baby goats and cats who rule dogs.
Yes, some of it is very wrong, but that’s what makes it so funny.
Sometimes the best fix for downward spiraling thoughts is to surrender to the story. Someone else’s story, that is. Here are some of the most properly distracting shows on Netflix lately, as compiled by informal survey of fellow creators:
- Call the Midwife
- Stranger Things
- Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
- The Crown
- Better Call Saul
- Arrested Development
- The Great British Baking Show
I haven’t seen most of those, but one of my new favs for pressing pause on mental overdrive is to settle in for a couple episodes of Escape to the Country. So calming and curiously reassuring.
Mother Earth is magic in transmuting negativity.
Sit in the sun, look at the clouds, listen to the ocean, commune with a tree (or just an indoor plant), walk barefoot on the grass, and don’t be surprised when that takes at least a little edge off the funk.
See what I mean: try it now with this audio/visual visit to a stream via YouTube.
Comedians to the Rescue
If you’ve got a favorite comedian, you already know the power of this vibe-shifter.
And if you don’t, it’s time to get one. They can get you laughing like even baby goats can’t, when you give them a chance.
The key is to finding your personal favorites. If you’re starting from scratch, sample from this list:
Dave Chappelle is back (R for language)
Kevin Hart works for many audiences (R for language)
Mike Birbiglia is adorable
Aziz Ansari is good for a laugh
Or sample the cast of Last Comic Standing.
Something Totally Different
Perhaps an enjoyable distraction isn’t calling you, but rather something more potent …
You might try a meditation designed to connect you to the light. Here’s one recommended by one of my favorite energy workers that’s designed to raise your vibration by connecting to the pillar of pure white light.
