So you had a tough day. Flunked an exam? Didn’t live up to someone’s expectations? Had a disagreement with your best friend? Well, don’t beat yourself up. Take a moment. Take a walk outside and regroup. You are not a screw up. You are a human doing the best you can. And it is challenging to please everyone, so don’t!
Indigos feel emotions to their core. When they are happy, it is contagious. But when they are down, it runs deep.
So now would be a good time to get out of this funk. A simple technique is through validation.
1. Write yourself a kind loving letter. That’s right. Just backup a bit and see yourself as if you were your own best friend. Your best friend wouldn’t berate you and make you feel worse. She would point out all the great characteristics you have and how wonderful you are. Save this letter and look at it whenever you are feeling down. And you can always add to the contents or even write yourself a new letter.
2. Look in the mirror, eye to eye, and say “I love you.” There might be some emotion that comes up: laughter, tears. This is natural, the important point in not to judge the emotion. All you do is reach for a better thought, “I love you”. Do this every day, as much as you can. It will get easier the more you do this exercise. If the word “love” does not come easily, say “I like you.“ and work your way up to “love”.
3. Connect to nature. And breathe. Earthing yourself will get you calm and focused.
4. Take 16 minutes, find a comfortable chair, and watch this video below. I have seen this ‘Validation’ video so many times and it has helped a lot. I think it will put whatever emotion you are feeling into a better perspective.
