Embracing Joy and Positivity: How to Let Go of Negativity

In a world filled with challenges and uncertainties, it is common to find ourselves grappling with negativity. If you’re someone who values joy, positivity, and seeks to let go of negativity, this article is for you.

Whether you are a spiritual seeker, a kind-hearted individual, an empath, or someone who aims to please, this guide offers practical strategies for releasing negativity and cultivating a more joyful and confident life. Let’s embark on a transformative journey together.

Acknowledge Your Feelings:

The first step in letting go of negativity is to acknowledge and accept your feelings. As a compassionate and empathic individual, it may be challenging to confront your own emotions, especially the negative ones. However, by allowing yourself to genuinely feel and accept these emotions without judgment, you open the door to healing and transformation.

Goddess Lifestyle Power Tip: Your feelings should always be honored, however most of our feelings were formed based off of an experience we have had in the past. It’s important to know what makes you tick, so take some time to journal or introspectively think about WHY you are feeling the way you do. The emotional realm corresponds to the element of Water, and Water is the only programmable element. Make it a daily practice to work on keeping your emotions clean, clear and current by asking yourself some powerful questions like, “Why do I feel this way?” or “Is this still true for me?”.

Practice Self-Compassion:

For those who prioritize others’ well-being, practicing self-compassion is crucial. Extend the same kindness, empathy, and understanding to yourself that you offer to others. Engage in self-care activities that nourish your soul, such as meditation, journaling, spending time in nature, or pursuing creative outlets. Remember, self-compassion is not selfish but a necessary foundation for living a more joyful and confident life.

Years ago when I embarked on my own healing and empowerment journey, I created a workbook to help me rediscover who I was and what “ingredients” I needed to feel juicy and inspired in life. You can download it for free here. I still use it to this day to make sure I’m filling my cup so to speak.

Goddess Lifestyle Power Tip: You should be SO FULL that everyone you come in contact with drinks from your overflow and not deplete your vital life force energy. Download the workbook I suggested in this section and design your Goddess Lifestyle Recipe.

Release the Shackles of Perfectionism:

Many individuals driven by kindness and empathy fall into the trap of perfectionism. Constantly seeking validation and approval from others, they put immense pressure on themselves. Letting go of perfectionism requires a shift in mindset. Embrace the understanding that you are worthy of love and acceptance, irrespective of your achievements or the opinions of others. Allow yourself to make mistakes, learn from them, and grow stronger.

Goddess Lifestyle Power Tip: Stop sharing your dreams and desires with people that don’t get you. Unfortunately, most of the time those are the people closest to you – in other words, your family. Keep your dream seeds close and nurture them quietly until they take root and their roots grow strong enough for others to take a shit on them. Because they probably will.

Set Boundaries and Prioritize Self-Care:

As someone who wants harmonious relationships in all areas of life, setting boundaries can be challenging. Yet, establishing healthy boundaries is essential for your well-being. Learn to say “no” when necessary and prioritize your own needs.

It’s okay to take care of yourself without feeling guilty. Surround yourself with individuals who respect your boundaries and uplift your spirit.

Goddess Lifestyle Power Tip: You will most likely have to “train” the people closest to you to respect your boundaries. This will take some time and you will get push-back, but please trust me, stay with the discomfort of having your loved one’s pissed at you, it’ll eventually pass. I call this process “relationship recalibration”.

Cultivate Gratitude:

Cultivating gratitude is a powerful practice that can shift your entire outlook on life. Take a few moments each day to reflect on the blessings in your life, both big and small. By focusing on what you are grateful for, you gradually let go of negativity and begin appreciating the present moment. Keep a gratitude journal or engage in gratitude meditations to foster a grateful mindset. I recorded a video years ago about how to start a gratitude journal practice and you can watch it right now.

Embrace Mindfulness:

Mindfulness is an invaluable tool for letting go of negativity. By practicing mindfulness, you cultivate awareness of your thoughts, emotions, and sensations in the present moment without judgment. Engage in mindfulness activities such as yoga, deep breathing exercises, or mindful walks in nature. Through mindfulness, you can detach from negative thought patterns, develop self-awareness, and embrace a more peaceful state of mind.

Goddess Lifestyle Power Tip: Create a sacred space for you to work on your mindfulness. I have an eBook entitled, Creating Sacred Spaces with Crystals and you can download it for free here.

Surround Yourself with Positive Influences:

I can’t emphasize this point enough – your environment significantly influences your mindset and well-being. You are who you surround yourself with. Surround yourself with positive influences, including supportive friends, uplifting books, inspirational podcasts, or spiritual communities. Seek out like-minded individuals who radiate positivity and can support you on your journey towards a more joyful and confident life.

Utilize Holistic Modalities and Metaphysical Tools:

Incorporating metaphysical tools can further support your journey of letting go of negativity. Crystals, such as Rose Quartz, Amethyst, or Citrine, can enhance self-love, inner peace, and positive energy. Use them during meditation, carry them with you, take a bath or shower with them, or place them in your living space.

Essential oils, like lavender, frankincense, or lemon, can be diffused or applied topically to create a calming and uplifting atmosphere, promoting emotional balance and clarity. You can take a look at the high quality essential oils and products I use and recommend on my doTERRA website.

Oracle or tarot cards can serve as powerful tools for introspection and guidance, connecting you with your intuition and providing insights into your journey of letting go. Click here to learn which decks are my favorite.
