Dump your Slump
I recently came to the expression dump your slump. What a nice slogan! It inspired me to close my eyes and see what would come up.
First, we always tell people, that however you feel, it’s okay. It’s there, don’t fight it, because the fight takes more energy (and is useless most of the time) then it takes to relax in anything you might feel.
Second, why wouldn’t you be able to feel differently? Feel good, always feel better?! Without fighting, doing, acting, a lot can change. Not seldom through love and awareness. Put light on what bothers you, look at it, watch it with consciousness, and… use some of these tips.
So here are my tips for Dump your Slump
1. Give yourself attention
A dip is a powerful signal to make you taking good / better care of yourself. Either physically, emotionally or mentally. Take care of your body, give yourself love, rest, purity, and regularity.
2. Realize: everything passes
After rain comes the sunshine. After the slump also comes another time when you feel better. If you know you always swing back and again, it is swinging easier.
3. Do more or do less
Not rarely a slump happens during or after a period of (serious) effort. So if you don’t want to pay the price: don’t worry, take some rest. The counterpart is also possible. Doing nothing all the time won’t make you happy.
4. Dive deep into it
Who says you cannot “enjoy” your slump. Dive into it completely. Dive so deep that you eventually you can achieve a great release of anything that bothers you. Roar, cry, moan, yell, laugh…
5. Breathe free
Who has experience with breathing, knows. Consciously, slowly and full breathing is a blessing for your body and mind. Give yourself a delicious oxygen and energy bath. Breathe yourself free from your slump.

6. Have sex
Oops, what am I saying … Well, it’s a proven fact that people feel much better after a bit of good sex. So come on! If you’re alone, don’t worry. Masturbation (take your time) is just as effective.
7. Talk about it
Expressing your feelings can be very liberating. Indeed in most cases the slump may be caused by NOT expressing what bothers you. So: speak out your feelings!
8. Do something nice
Always good to do something nice. Doing something nice or funny will distract you mind a bit. Your mind can relax and so the slump might disappear, just like frost in the morning sun.
9. Understand the cause of your slump
Get to know yourself! That slump comes from somewhere. Something in you is touched by a person and / or situation. Your system responds to it, that’s why slump. But what is / was it? Find it, know yourself.
10. You are not your slump
You have a slump, you are not your slump! Try to understand that your body or mind has a slump. And if you can see that… then you know that YOU are not the slump. Your body / mind is in a slump, but you, that what you really are, is undisturbed.
11. Do a solar cure
Sometimes it seems that the winter period is extended until the fall. We are just short of sunshine. So take a solar cure and / or go outside. In the sun, nature, outdoors. Delicious!
12. Do a laugh – meditation
Ever tried to laugh at/during a slump? Maybe you’ll just cry, but eventually you will laugh. Laughter is healthy and a good remedy for slumps.

13. Think about something else
Oh sometimes things are not that easy and you’re in a slump. But dreams can! Think about something else, dream of good times. Imagine in your mind just how that is. Feel better.
14. Feel good, always feel better
A slump is a feeling, and it’s always possible to feel better. Choose happiness, always choose the direction of happiness. Dump your slump. If something changes in your mind or acts, everything changes.
15. Go wild
I’ve been known to get down a little myself! Why not? We are so caught up in all kinds of patterns that don’t make us happy. There’s so much we “have to” so much, we should behave. Well … not here. Jump for joy!
16. Take a winter nap
Hmmm, nothing as good as a nice long refreshing nap when you’re not feeling okay. After a good night’s sleep the world usually looks very different. Take your rest, take time for yourself.
17. Accept you slump
Accept “what is” is an important spiritual law to feel happy. So … do not go into battle with your slump. That slump is already there, so that’s pointless. Say a resounding YES to your dip.
18. Trust the universe
Even if you don’t know how it is, what to do about it. That slump didn’t happen in vain. Trust that the universe has your best interest. Relax … It was/is good.
19. See the lesson
Confidence doesn’t mean that you have to do nothing. Insight makes you grow and prevent future slumps. So see the lesson in you slump and learn. Don’t do the same every time!
20. Seek help if needed
It may seem I don’t take your slump serious, but that’s not true. As long as it takes. take your dip seriously too, especially if it lasts long. Seek help if needed, don’t wait too long. Asking for help is okay.
You are not your slump!!
