Sadness can be truly debilitating sometimes, leaving us feeling withdrawn, lifeless and flat. So how, when we’re feeling like this, do we take that sadness and channel it into something beautifully creative? How do we transcend the sadness and move forward?

We all feel sad sometimes. Perhaps you’re mourning the loss of a loved one, perhaps it’s sadness over some of the tragedies that are happening around the world, perhaps you feel stuck and don’t know how to move forward. Or, perhaps you just feel sad for no reason other than it’s a sad day.

How to channel your sadness into beauty

Firstly let’s explore what sadness really is, because, when we realise what is truly at the heart of our sadness, we are able to channel it positively.

What is Sadness?

The first thing I want to stress about sadness is that it is natural. It comes to all of us as part of the natural process of life; the ebb and flow that comes with living in a world governed by dualistic principles. It is impossible to truly know something without also knowing the lack of it. It may be triggered by something or it may simple wash over us.

Sadness is caused by our observation that things are not okay; a feeling that somehow our reality is unaligned, and doesn’t always meet up to the beauty and love that we often feel. It is a playing out of our explorations of our reality, showing us where we may be stuck or attached to people or situations.
