You Can Never Be Too Rich or Too Thin… Or Have Too Many Facebook Likes

Money and Pounds and Likes Oh My!

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.

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!

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.

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?

  1. i really like this concept jess! except the weight table at the end. i know i shouldn’t nit pick or anything, but it strikes me as potentially triggering (i mean, apparently i weight somewhere between “overwhelmed” and “disappointed”)! i get the “light as air” metaphor you are going for & that this is more about emotional than physical weight, but even when i’m at the top of the scale emotionally, i would never feel like 100 lb, because to me personally, that feels wrong and i wouldn’t be me–anything over 140+ isn’t something to be ashamed of & shouldn’t be listed as a “negative” emotion. i don’t think i’d be a better person or in a better mood at 100lb than 150. just a thought and thanks for hearing me out…

  2. Hi Emily! Thanks for the feedback. I know the weight scale isn’t realistic – I don’t hope to feel like 100 lbs either! It’s just an example – every person would have their own scale. Some people may have the scale going in the opposite direction – the better they feel, the more weight they gain (if that’s what they want).

    I’m not trying to equate the specific weights with emotions, because it varies so much from person to person. But for someone who wants to lose weight (or get more money or more likes), paying attention to mood can help more than stepping on a scale.

    No one is a better person because of what they weigh, how much money they have, or how popular they are. But lots of us want those things anyway. My point is more that mood is the only thing that actually matters, and that maybe the physical manifestations correspond in a systematic manner.

    Also- the money example is just as off too. $100,000 isn’t nearly enough! Haha.

  3. Also, if you’re lucky enough to not feel like you have to measure your value in manifestations, that’s awesome! That’s what we’re working toward. This visualization is just a way to practice the feeling of feeling valuable.

    I encourage everyone to make their own scales – like if you’re a server, how would your tips be? Based on my mood, how good would my AJ play be? It’s less about the manifestation tied to your mood, and more about your mood itself. The point of the exercise is to realize “oh gee, I feel like negative money – no wonder I’m noticing a lack of abundance” and then change one’s mood accordingly.

    The weight example is a pretty obvious example of the things I care about… and my goal is to not feel like I have to measure my value in manifestations. I see this exercise as a bridge from having physical value to feeling valuable.

  4. Thank you for this, Jessica! I woke up in a -$10,000 mood today, and this is so incredibly helpful! I gained perspective.

  5. Hey Jessica,

    I have been reading and listening to your podcast but there is one thing I don’t get about this lesson and the law of attraction. If one is grieving are they just supposed to forget the grief feelings and feel better or are they getting -10,000 because they are grieving. Or is a grieving the loss of a person wrong all together? I am just really confused and would love some feedback.

  6. Hi Emma! Abraham-Hicks would say that grief is unnecessary no matter what, because grief is only your body’s response to negative thoughts. When you think negative thoughts, you feel grief, which is an indicator that you are separating yourself from your source (or god). You have emotions as a directional guidance system. When you feel bad, that’s an indicator to change your thoughts (or if you’re practiced enough, just change the emotion).

    Abraham has a lot of great information on death, if that’s what you’d like to hear more about. They teach that death is not what we think it is – it is not an ending or a loss of any kind. It is just a switching of perspective. If you think of us as all connected, all being one “life”, when someone dies, life just stops “doing” that person. But that person still exists in all of life.

    Without death we could not have birth – it’s just another example of the on/off nature of life. It’s necessary and beautiful and not bad or scary at all. When people pass, you may feel pain and experience negative thoughts, but you always have control over what you think and how you feel. Start looking for the positive aspects of death and you will find them. It’s not morbid to do so – it’s the nature of life.

  7. Hi Jessica,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to give me a thoughtful reply. I would definitely like to know more about what Abraham has to say about death. Do you know what books death is talked about in?

    I have applied your idea to my day today and have been finding positive things in death and I already feel a little bit lighter.

    Thank you so much.

  8. Emma,
    I suggest looking up “Abraham death” on youtube for videos where they speak about it. I’m not sure if they speak about it in _Ask and It Is Given_ but that’s a great book to start with.

    I’m so happy to hear you’re feeling better. You are a powerful creator and you deserve nothing but love!
