What to do when you're sad

What do you do when you're feeling sad?

Have you noticed how it is often far easier to care for another person than it is to care for yourself?

 

Last night I was feeling sad. Nothing was "wrong." I was just tired and sad.

 

I had just finished my Mediumship class. I'd connected with the spirit realm very well. But it's tiring to learn a new skill -- especially a skill like that.

 

So after raising my energy for the class, I slipped into lower energy.

 

Ebb and flow are partners, after all. It's important to make room for both sides of that same coin.

 

I was tired and hungry and sad. Sitting at my desk, I felt stuck and stagnant, vaguely wishing to do something productive but not feeling the motivation to do anything. I didn't even want to make dinner even though I was very hungry.

 

I was on the brink of mindless Facebook scrolling that can easily consume several hours of experience.

 

Then I wondered how I would treat my lover or my best friend if they were feeling like this. What would I say? What would I do?

 

Well, I would do whatever I could to nurture that person. I would cook and make them comfortable. I would say loving things.

 

So I treated myself as I would treat a lover or a best friend.

 

I cooked a nutritious dinner. I made lavender rose tea in my favorite mug (you can see it in the picture). I made a comfy "nest" with my favorite blanket and pillow. I lit candles, diffused essential oils, and brought out a good book to read. I put on comfy pajamas and fuzzy socks.

 

I nurtured myself through the sadness and fatigue.

 

I ended up feeling so loved, nourished, and strengthened. I woke up today feeling FANTASTIC!

 

If you are feeling sad, I encourage you to treat yourself as you would treat a lover or best friend.

 

If you need to work through emotions, then do so. Allow your inner dialogue to be filled with love, as it would be if you were speaking to a loved one. 

Self-love may not come naturally. But with practice, you can make it a habit <3
