How can I help myself feel happier? If you are asking for healing, begin the practice of letting your feelings up. Sometimes it seems easier to just shut off our emotions, but when we do that we also shut off getting in touch with the thought system and the beliefs that are underneath those emotions. Become aware of your emotions. Let repressed emotions rise into awareness. It is only through looking at the ego thought system and beliefs that we can let them go and healing can take place . . .
