A pang of jealousy is a helpful little lightbulb, illuminating the areas in which we feel a lack. It's an internal alarm that wakes us up to any feelings of unworthiness. It notifies us of where we may need to alter our self-perception. Instead of holding onto this heaviness and letting it immobilize you, why not use it to your advantage and then let it go?
In any moment of unexpected jealousy, ask yourself "what am I telling myself about what this person is telling me? What does it seem like they have? How must they be feeling?" And then, "what is it that I REALLY want? How do I really want to feel?"
We say we want the thing (i.e. the romantic relationship, the high paying job, the trending body type) but we may just want the emotional experience it promises (i.e. connection, freedom from worry, self-acceptance). We seek the form but it's often the feeling, the essence, the quality underneath it that we desire.
If you're coveting a certain quality - be it love, excitement, purpose, abundance, etc., then you also have the capacity to experience it. We are all connected. Every feeling that has ever and could ever be felt by a human being exists somewhere within you. It may be lying dormant but it's there, waiting for recognition and activation. Keep inquiring. Get to the root of what you really want- the emotional experience that you really desire to have. Where do you already have bits and pieces of it in your life? Focus your attention and your gratitude there. Start with the feeling itself and let it grow. Cultivate that energy. Conscious manifestation always originates within.
