It's Okay to Feel Bad
Conscious creators get a lot of input about how important it is to feel good.
We know that we get what we vibrate, so any time we feel bad, we’re a magnet for more of the same.
That understanding can leave us unwilling or uncomfortable to roll with the less than fabulous feelings.
Even our muggle friends sometimes get impatient with our bad moods or worry rants, and tell us to snap out of it or to look on the bright side.
But sometimes the bright side is simply out of reach.
And trying to get there before we’ve let ourselves feel what’s up isn’t helpful or effective.
Yes, sometimes we can catch a bad turn before it takes hold, and redirect before it gets traction.
But on other occasions this is the time for feeling bad.
That’s when it’s best to drop resistance to those “negative” feelings and roll with them. Because whatever we resist, persists.
That’s why it’s worth remembering that it’s okay to feel bad, when you feel bad.
- It’s okay to feel mad when you’re mad.
- It’s okay to feel sad when you’re sad.
- It’s okay to feel scared when you’re scared.
- It’s okay to feel whatever you feel.
It’s all part of being human.
So you can drop your judgment of it; you can stop wishing it away; and you can drop your fear of what you’re attracting while you’re feeling bad.
And instead just feel what you feel.
That allowing is part of a savvy creator’s repertoire.
A funny thing happens when we say yes to whatever we’re feeling …
We start to feel better. Maybe not immediately, but eventually.
And all that contrast we cooked up while we were feeling bad, it pays off. Life gets better than it was before.
In all sorts of ways.
Big, beautiful, brilliant ways. (The kind of ways that make you glad for what you went through!)
But not while we’re trying not to feel bad. Resistance to those emotions keeps us locked in them.
So this is our reminder while there are a lot of challenging situations across the globe right now (let alone what’s happening in our personal lives), that it’s okay to feel whatever we feel.
It’s okay to feel afraid, it’s okay to feel angry. It’s okay to feel sad.
And it’s okay to feel okay when everyone else isn’t.
Say yes to whatever’s up for you emotionally, and notice how quickly it gets even better.
