Mood Shifters


During these somewhat chaotic times, I sometimes find it challenging to remain balanced and positive.

Whenever I find myself negatively influenced by outside events or even inner turmoil, I open my tool box and find something to help shift my energy to a better place.

Here are some ideas I would love to share which you might find useful to help uplift your spirit when need be.

The first thing I use is Music. I love music. There is something uplifting and joyous in music which really brings me to a better place. The kind I choose really depends. Sometimes I love the energy of Jazz. Other times, it’s Classical.

In that same area of music, I also find Solfeggio tones to be incredibly helpful. Here’s a little on Solfeggio’s:
In simple terms, the Solfeggio Frequencies are a collection of musical sounds that originated from the historical Gregorian Monks who chanted different frequency tones during religious practices.
The Solfeggio Frequencies are used in the present day for meditation across all forms of healing practices across the world. Each frequency tone is said to raise vibration. There are nine different frequencies – each used for a different energy. They cover everything from relieving pain to restoring spiritual order. If you google Solfeggio Frequencies, you can find each frequency and which one will best lift your spirit.

I also find Meditation to be another incredibly effective tool for calming the mind and re-energizing the spirit. Although there are many techniques. I find simply sitting quietly, and counting my breaths to be a good simple yet effective technique. Breathe in through your nose for a count of five, hold it for a count of 5 and breathe out through your mouth for another count of 5. Simple and effective one ‘If you prefer guided meditations Insight Timer is a wonderful app which has hundreds of guided meditations. Here is the link:

My last idea is getting out in nature. Take a nice walk or run outside. Nothing better. Speaking for myself (which really is all anyone can do) being in nature gives me a real connection and sense of inner peace.
I also believe that when you are feeling down, there are times when the easiest thing it’s necessary to sometimes to just cut yourself some slack.
Abraham Hicks says that sometimes the only thing you can do when you are feeling low is to try to feel even a little better than you do at the time.
We are human, which means we have feelings and emotions and it is ok to get down, or melancholy, just do the best you can at the time and by doing this you will be amazed at the difference you (might) feel.
