Clarissa’s spirits plummeted. Yes, she got bummed out when she did not receive a response to a note she sent a man on the dating site. Yes some other discouraging moments happened. (Aside: Reviewing how poorly we feel will bring to us more of feeling poorly.)

Quite regularly, this woman had been practicing uplifting herself. She said inside herself, “When I feel low, I know that view is not the whole picture. It’s not ‘All That I Am.’  Source Energy views me as shining, happy and successful.”

A bit more time passed, then she felt some brightness, “I am completely fine as I feel discouraged. Gosh I certainly have cycled through these moods before. Good continues to flow from me and to me. The sun still shines behind clouds and storms. “

The lift increased; her mood brightened some. C starting recalling some of the many good things that she had experienced. So many! In fact, she took the time to list some, writing them out brought them to her consciousness again. She smiled.

Gaining Momentum

The uplift process was gaining momentum: now our star felt a good chunk happier. C followed her impulse to check on her new plantings, A joy to behold! This woman viewed some nature photographs on Facebook and felt delight—that felt better!

Going to email, she exclaimed, “Look at this. I got an offer for bodywork exchange; I got a response from an internet dating email showing interest in a meet. Cool!.”

Next day Clarissa attracted some fun things showing up, she got some of what she wanted, mood lifting, and validation.

That morning this woman felt more of her own beauty. Gazing in the mirror she perceived a nice-looking female!
