When was the last time you felt really bad. Heavy? Weak, tired and
unhappy. I was dragging myself around for my daily walk. “What is
going on with me” I pondered. “It is spring time and I love spring.”
It is so hard to be grumpy when spring is expressing itself all over
the land. Tiny little flowers popping up everywhere. These bright
colors normally create a smile in every cell so I feel good all over.
Not today, no tingles for me.

My energy is definitely not resonating with the energy of spring. I
am like molasses— dark and slow. “Wonder if I taste as good as
molasses?” I thought. At least, I have not completely lost my sense
of humor! A tiny smile occurred to help me shift out of my heavy
energy and observe how I am creating such slow energy. Too much
thinking, that is for sure. I have learned over the years that my
Inner Critic depletes my energy quicker than anything else. So, I
looked at my thoughts. Sure enough, that Inner Monster was hitting
me with some nasty, scary thoughts.

The next thing I did was dig deeper into how I felt. Yes, sure enough,
Old Man River, came to mind. “I’m tired of living and scared of dying,”
was singing in my heart. It is important to discover how you really
feel, not just what you are thinking. I was feeling helpless. Things
were not going as I wished. I felt trapped and did not know what to do.
You may have trouble admitting you feel helpless but it quickly
empowers you if you do. Once you know you feel helpless, then you
take responsibility for yourself. Being responsible is an effective,
wise action to take in all situations.

Taking personal responsibility immediately removes you from the
mental illness category. When you are responsible for your
experience, you have the power. This is extremely important.
Otherwise, your unconscious is the one with the upper hand. Effective
personal growth brings up from the dark what you are doing to create
your experience to your conscious mind. There are many real life
events where feeling bad is what we really need to feel, for example,
in times of great loss such as many of us have been forced to deal
with during the pandemic. Grieving is a good feeling bad.

However, feeling bad because your unconscious is controlling you is
quite different. This type of feeling bad is totally unnecessary and
wasteful. We all get stuck in mass consciousness and powerful people
take the time to get unstuck. Take responsibly and tell your Inner
Critic to get in the back seat because you are the one in charge; you
are the driver. Take responsibility and get the help you need to
solve your real problems. Yes, get help from many sources.

Breathe, notice your thoughts, feel your feelings and take
responsibility. Soon, you feel better, much better. The next day,
you’ll feel even better, and wiser.
