If you had to place a monetary value on how you feel, what would it be?
If your weight was based on your mood, how much would you weigh?
If you got Facebook likes for your mood, how many likes would you have right now?
Many of us, myself included, fall into the trap of valuing ourselves based on how much money we have, how much we weigh, or how popular we are. Intellectually we know that our lives are invaluable and that we are already perfect just by being alive, but we can't help but want more.
A better gauge of one's value is mood, because your mood attracts your thoughts which create your reality. Good moods attract good ideas. Bad moods attract bad ideas. Yes, you are perfect and invaluable as you are. But we're here to enjoy life, so why not measure how good we feel, how much fun we're having, and how much love we're feeling?
What if you were compensated financially for your mood measurement? Would you take more care to feel good? What if you lost weight the better you felt? What if your popularity was based on the love you project?
As you may have guessed, the above "what ifs" are all true. Your mood does determine your wealth, health, and social circle. There may not be a specific mood-to-money ratio, but I'm certain we can come up with a close approximation.
Mood to Money conversion table
For this example, I've attached Abraham-Hicks emotional guidance scale to monetary values. Imagine a monthly salary based on the above scale. Your pay is determined by your average mood throughout the month. This scale definitely motivates me to feel good!
Mood to Facebook likes conversion table
|1,000 Likes||Positive Expectation/Belief|
Imagine getting Facebook likes based on your mood. When you feel good, you're doing nice things like creating, giving, sharing, laughing, and playing. Of course you'd get a lot of likes. But anger, jealousy, and fear based actions and thoughts would likely not attract any likes at all.
Mood to Weight conversion table
|115 lbs||Positive Expectation/Belief|
No matter what you actually weigh, you can feel the feeling of weighing something different. Compare "I feel light as air!" to "My heart is heavy." The vibration you project can be a high, light frequency, or a low, heavy frequency. What weight do you feel like most of the time?
Practice feeling the numbers you want
I've been asking myself throughout the day, "what is my mood worth right now?" When I was feeling a negative emotion, a negative number popped in my head. So I've been working on ways to feel higher numbers. What does a $100,000 mood feel like? To me, it feels like being at the top of my creative game. I can access that feeling pretty easily when I focus.
How many Facebook likes would your mood garner right now? Are you doing nice things for people, creating your best work, smiling at strangers? This visualization helps me remember to feel generous and kind.
How much does your mood weigh right now? When I'm in a good mood, not thinking about calories and diet and fat and sizes, I can honestly say I feel like I weigh way less than I actually do. I guarantee practicing the mood of your ideal weight is the fastest way to get there.
I created these conversion tables to illustrate how closely connected mood and manifestation are. Combining a traditional value system (money, weight or likes) with an untraditional value system (mood) helps bridge the gap from the things we want to the moods that will attract those things. If your salary depends on your mood, how does that change your thoughts, habits and behaviors?
