Do What Makes You Feel Good

When times are challenging and we are fighting to get out of bed, it’s hard to remember the importance of doing what makes us feel good. Here’s your reminder!

I recently needed this reminder even though I heard it from my inner voice, family, and trusted friends. It just wasn’t getting through because I was energetically stuck in a story of I’m not doing enough. I was blocked from connecting, receiving, and absorbing.

For those who feel like they are stuck or spiraling, here is your reminder to do what makes you feel good—body, mind, and soul. We are creating more of the energy we are in. If we don’t like the energy we are creating more of, we need to break the cycle and do, think, feel, and believe something different.The simplest way to do this is to do what makes us feel good.

Let me clarify: when I’m referring to doing what makes us feel good body, mind, and soul, it means what we are doing benefits our bodies, minds, and souls. This means things that are not healthy for us aren’t considered what makes us feel good. Connecting to others from a loving place feels good. Stretching our bodies feels good. Connecting to Spirit without guilt or shame feels good. Eating healthy foods feels good to our bodies. Drinking a lot of water feels good to our organs. I hope that gives you a good idea of what I’m referring to here. Doing things that give us emotional and/or physical hangovers, don’t make us feel good.

Those experiences are necessary for our growth and emotional hangover is where I will begin.

One day, I prayed a very desperate prayer for clarity. I asked for a clear path out of feeling the way I was. I was in such a spiral that I couldn’t even pull out the exact feelings I was feeling or why. A series of events happened just after I prayed, which led me to text Kiersten Parsons Hathcock, author of the upcoming memoir, Little Voices. She is a dear friend and was there to lead me to the help I needed. She sent me to an Intuitive Reader named Cynthia Spiece.

Cynthia reminded me that the way out of my funk was to do what feels good. I had been getting this message for awhile, but I just kept blocking myself from doing the things that made me feel good like reading, stretching, drinking water, dancing, helping others through creating programs, going to watch sunsets, taking nature walks, meditating, connecting with loved ones, etc.

I was putting so much pressure on myself to be and do more than I was that I froze. Making the shift of doing what makes me feel good has inspired me and lifted my energy back to the place where I feel connected to the present moment in my thoughts, beliefs, and actions.

God has been trying to get the message through to me. I kept asking myself, “Why am I not doing the things that I KNOW make me feel better?” I just had to be open enough to hear and accept the answer and I needed a little help to do that.

Sometimes when I’m in a downward spiral, I can’t see the way out. Things are blurry. When I pray for clarity, and I trust that answer will reveal itself. The spiraling energy slows down. I can be open enough to hear, connect, and absorb the information I’m getting.

Spirit has a way of coming through however we can relate when we are ready. It can be through a person, song, book, sermon, meditation, or any number of experiences, but the trick is to stay open. Our messengers don’t always come in the packages that we expect.

I hope this post helps whoever this message is meant to reach.

With Love, Compassion, and Gratitude,

  1. True indeed! I always use a pray when I need clarity.. “Let me see the truth in this situation. I surrender this situation.” This moment of surrender brings peace and slows us down. 🙂
