So many times in my life I was thrilled to experience the “tears of joy” that we all get. Something joyful happens and we tear up…but why do we do that?
What tears of joy really mean (usually, and I say this from my life experience) is that we are having a wonderful moment of joy, but we know it’s bittersweet, fleeting, and temporary (like for a child’s graduation and lots of things with children)…and we wish to experience it longer, and therefore, we experience a mixed emotion of what is really joy AND anguish about the timing. I find that this happens to me a LOT! I feel sincerely moved by the every day living of being a mother and watching my children grow up, watching relationships change over “time”, and the uniqueness of each person I am honored to behold.
I thought this was just my humble opinion, but then I actually found an Abraham-Hicks video about tears of joy…and although she doesn’t say exactly what I just did, she clarifies some cool stuff.
She says that if we are crying for any reason, we are not in the vortex, and the reason we cry when something feels really good is because we aren’t used to feeling good for an extended period of time. With practicing gradually changing our vibrations, we can change to experience and notice more good in our every day lives, and the moments that would give us tears will give us more pure joy instead, and we’ll get used to living from that purer state. I suppose I should be asking to manifest overflowing good feelings, so that I can share them with others, rather than observe life.
I like how she talks about relief and clarity!
Much love from Jen C.
