No one thinks this is the answer
As a Soul Level Intuitive Coach, I’m often asked, “How can I feel happy?”
The answer may surprise you. It’s not a sexy answer. It’s not a cool answer. You’re not going to read about it on the Huffington Post and you’re definitely going to hear about it on the morning news.
But the boring (yet totally effective!) answer is Personal Energy Management.
What is Personal Energy Management
What is this answer? Is it grounding? Is it meditation? Is it going into a dark room and closing the door?It’s actually none of those things for me, but it might be some of those things for you.
We’re all programmed to keep going no matter what. I’m sure someone has told you, “Get over it. It’s fine. Just keep going….” I’m sure you’ve also been told not to dwell or just to stop thinking about that upsetting thing. But does that really work?
What if you could actually do something to change your state of mind so that you no longer felt like you had to PUSH through something. What if there was a key you’ve been overlooking for in how to feel happy? This is what personal energy management is.
This type of work is really about doing whatever you need to do to shift yourself out of any type of negative thought pattern or mood into a more positive one. The type that I like? It takes only 10-30 seconds (and I’ll show you that in a minute!)
How it Helps You Feel Happy
First, personal energy management will not automatically make you feel happy. That’s because many people learn about it, but they don’t take the time to stop and do it. You have to actually do it! Which means, to feel happy you have to start becoming aware of yourself, your emotions, and even your thought process. Not in a judgy way – but in a curious way.
Like, “Ugh. I keep thinking the same thing again and again about my neighbor. I’m feeling pretty crappy right now…” Just notice that thought – and that’s the start of of you working toward feeling happy! Noticing.
Noticing can be hard because when you notice you feel crappy, you most likely then feel more crappy. BUT, it’s actually the perfect staring point for personal energy management and for how to feel happy!
