Freedom, is having nothing to lose; and everything to gain…
Your now influences your future. Yet, your future also influences your now and your past. Your possibilities are limitless…
Life is about evolving. Evolving is about transformation and change. Sometimes life gives you no option but to evolve. Sometimes, you’re brave enough, faithful enough, ‘crazy enough’, wise enough and courageous enough to choose evolution and transformation on your own. When you do, you venture out from your pristine comfort-zone, into the vast unknown. Lots may be uncertain and unfamiliar. What is always, assuredly, constant though – is Divine Guidance. Trust It. Flow with It. Be happy in It. It will have you “live” more authentically, more fully, more magically and more holistically wholesomely, than staying in a predictable, routine, ‘safe’ comfort-zone ever would. …And then, get familiar with It, ‘cos It’s going to call out to you again, and again, and again…
Make right NOW the best time of your life, in every now moment.
Strive, Or Realize?
Strive, Or Realize?
It’s Your Choice.
Feel It, Be It…
When you feel it, being it is natural.
When you sprout wings, it becomes your very nature to continually soar ever-higher, ever-freer and ever-expansively…
Your Guaranteed Way Of Harnessing Different Results, Is Simply By Thinking, Feeling, Being And Doing Differently.
Eyes ‘Open’, Eyes Closed…
In Simply Closing My Eyes And Looking Upon The Sun,
I Am Transported To Worlds More Real, More Magical, And More Supremely Powerful Than I Have Ever Seen Or Experienced With My Eyes Fully “Open”…
Is Your Clearest ‘Vision’ External, Or Is It Internal?
STOP, to BE…
Start to STOP.
STOP, to BE.
Explore Beyond The Known…
Be eager about the unknown…
Anticipate the wondrous places it leads you to!
THERE’S WORLDS TO EXPLORE BEYOND THE “KNOWN”…
Look forward… Your future is waiting to meet you.
When things seem worst, it’s also simultaneously the cusp and summoning of all possibilities…
Change not only during “lockdown”, while waiting to rush back to your “normal”.
Change, rather, your everyday lifestyle, from this point forward.
Life In Transition…
Every moment is a transition into the next. The many moments of Life are transitory. The many moments leading up to, and the singular moment of ‘death’ are transitory.
Recognize and be aware of the Well-Being which is ever-present. Live every moment FOR LIFE – in faith, joy, appreciation, love, gratitude…
Play Nice Together:
Regardless of where you may be located geographically, or what you may be facing in your specific context, why not choose love, unity and global cooperation?
The human condition is common to you, to me, to all. Everyone smiles, everyone laughs, everyone cries, everyone hurts, everyone hopes, everyone dreams…
Let’s choose to see not the ‘other’, but One. Let’s choose to love as One, rather than to choose suffering and illusory ‘national’ or other separation. No policy or procedures required!
In a world where Divinity reigns, unity is a way of life.
🌀💚❤️Let’s play nice together.🌀💚❤️

See the ‘reality’ for what it is.
Find/Create your Highest Path.
Move forward in trust, faith, love and joy.
New and different doesn’t have to be feared or hidden-away from.
All things transform.
All is well.
You are free.
Feel a love Divine…
Celebrate love in every moment, of every day!
Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Future!
All it takes to change your future, is to think a different thought! You, dear one, are the primary creator of your life! By your very thoughts, feelings and desires, you’re in a constant process of co-creation with Creation itself and with the Creator of All That Is.
A changed future is only a different thought away…
What do you choose to think?💕🌀
INTEGRITY, SIMPLICITY, PURPOSE, FUNCTIONALITY, SUSTAINABILITY:
Any project worth undertaking has these elements at its core.
Life-Partner Blessings And Appreciations…
Know thyself… So that you may be able to know what you desire.
Be able to be, and to give, what you expect/desire.
Blessed be, and appreciate that which you verily summon and create through love and trust.
Thanksgiving And Appreciation:
Being able to feel thankful and appreciative is a gift which we’re all blessed with, every day of our lives.
No matter how small or big, luxurious or simple, near or distant, natural or artificial, wondrous or plain, easy or difficult, Divine or mortal – there’s always something to be thankful for.
Let’s grow increasingly aware of the magical blessings in our lives, through every moment of every day… Let’s celebrate every moment of every day… For, within the ordinary, seemingly mundane and even painful and challenging, lies magic to be discovered/transformed/created…
Make Love…With Life:
All of life is love. Make love, in every moment, with everything. ❤️💚
Be in love, with Life…with all.
Love is a state of being…If you view love as something to be directed at only a lover/friend/family member/pet, etc. – you’re missing the true essence of love.💚❤️
…The Essence Of All…
You’re Always Granted The Essence Of Your Deepest Desires:
Be assured that you’re always, most definitely, granted the essence of your deepest-felt-desires!
The Divine is listening…
Ask. Believe. Receive. Appreciate.❤️💚💙💜
Agreeing To Disagree:
Deep, authentic love and respect can thrive in an environment which embraces differences…
It’s simple: Let’s agree to disagree.
And let’s continue to love, respect and learn from each other; while continually evolving and growing together!
Love and respect doesn’t always call for total and complete agreement with another. Instead, embracing different thoughts, ideas and points of view calls for maturity, which ultimately strengthens and transforms any relationship, because it’s authentic rather than based upon merely superficially pleasing each other.
Be happy… Know when to agree to disagree!💕
Blessed With The Best:
The BEST exists in everything… Yes, even in the seemingly worst.
When you’re someone who makes the best of anything and everything, you’re a creator of your own destiny.
Be blessed with the best!
Guidance On Demand:
You’re always connected to All That Is. Your every question has an answer. To every seeming ‘problem’, is there a solution.
Ask, feel, be aware – and you shall receive.
G – Guidance
O – On
D – Demand
You’re now and eternally blessed. Receive in appreciation, love and trust.
Dance And Thrive With Each Other:
Your feelings, just like your thoughts, are a choice. You wield power over them, by your chosen perspectives, attention and attitudes.
Complement, co-create, evolve, grow, transform, support, play, dance and thrive together/with each other; or compete with and engage in mind games and power struggles against each other, resultantly dwelling in insecurities due to misaligned perceptions…
It’s simply and solely a matter of what you choose and what you focus upon.
If you feel emasculated, simply by me being me, and by you being you… You have a choice: 1) Step up, empower yourself; or 2) Step out, enjoy yourself.
GOD BLESS THE RAINDROPS…
I feel raindrops…
Raindrops feel me…
God bless the raindrops!
God bless me!
You, me, the rain, the stars, the moon, the sun, the trees, the seas, the breeze, the birds, the fish, the frogs, the moody geese… We are all One… Made of the same energy, emerged from One Consciousness.
Revel, sometimes, in appreciation and the joy of being kissed by the raindrops, rather than always bolting toward sheltered protection (even though we remain so very appreciative of and thankful for the blessings of comfy sturdy homes, wholesome meals, piped water for hot refreshing showers, electricity, etc.)
…What if… The rain feels you, as much as you feel the rain? ☺️
Feel the blessings of your Divine connectedness with All That Is!
It Is What You Make Of It:
All anything ever is, is what you make of it…
Your choices of attributed meanings…
Make it work for your best and for your highest well-being!!!
God: My Life-Partner
Am I looking for marriage? Nope.
Am I looking for authentic connection? Yip, definitely!
What happens if I don’t find authentic connection with a man? I still win! I continue happily, blessedly walking my path with God as my Life-Partner, as I’ve always done…
(Do I think that God has authentic Divine connection with a man, in store for me? Yes, for sure!😉)
Let the basis be true connection, first and foremost, and then let marriage follow, if so be it. Then too, let it be rather a “celebration and declaration of the Sacred Union of togetherness, based upon freedom and mutual evolution”, rather than a “contract of stagnant obligations”.
A relationship-basis on a primary want/need for the ‘idea’ of “marriage”, as opposed to a genuine sacred spiritual foundation of heart-mind-body-soul-connection, just isn’t a turn-on for me 💕🌀💚
Blessed to be working with the most amazing, wondrous, beautiful people!
And SO appreciative too!
Find and live your joys in as many ways and in as many moments as you can! Beauty, grace and wonder abounds!
Your power is in your clarity!
Re-Align With Your Highest Value-Adding Priorities:
Live your best life.
Assess and re-align with your highest value-adding priorities.
Leading-Edge Of Thought, Feeling and Creation:
Learning from the brilliant, wondrous, magical, free-spirited minds and hearts of kids is some of the most terrific education around!
Observe, engage, celebrate, honor and take some lessons from these little beings who are on the leading-edge of thought, feeling and creation…
Diversity, Authenticity, Freedom…
Change yourself for nobody but yourself.
Change nobody for yourself.
Diversity, authenticity and freedom are Divine Gifts to be honored.
If I’m no longer around, know u’re loved. If I’m always around, know u’re loved. If u never hear from me again, know u’re loved. If u hear from me to no end, know u’re loved. If u hate me, know u’re loved. If u love me, know u’re loved.🌀🐋
Take Action From A Point Of Happiness:
Move on/do something new/make changes when you’re at your happiest. This will ensure that you’re forever growing toward your Light, not running from darkness.
EVERYTHING’S OK…NOW, ALWAYS!
I thought it would be nice to have a man tell me, “Everything’s gona be ok”…Then I felt my wise-old-all-knowing-perfectly-balanced inner-being say to me: “Aaah, sweetness! Everything’s ok…Now, Always!”
Remember that you are a whole, complete being. You have all necessary resources within yourself to live a loving, happy, supported, appreciative, rest-assured, re-assured, Divinely guided, blessed life.
All Is Well. Always. Forevermore…
DIRECT CONNECTION WITH THE DIVINE:
You already have access to your most intimate relationship with the Divine, within you. The more often you connect with your inner being, the more you flow with the abundant, eternal well-being of All-That-Is.
Love, nurture and frolic with this most significant primary relationship in your life!
LIFE FEELS LIKE…
You know you’re giving yourself, your loved ones, and all of Life your best, when: you honor feeling: appreciation, love, inspiration, fulfillment, Grace, flow, ease, happiness, blessings and magic…
Regardless of where you may be, or what you may be facing, when you’re aware of, and honor, the best and the highest in any situation, you similarly attract the best and the highest for your future moments and experiences!
LOVE AND APPRECIATE YOURSELF:
Love yourself. Appreciate yourself. Be happy. Be free. Be glad to be you!
‘You’ Are Your Competitive Edge
Being authentically you is all you need and all you need to be. Your unique combination of qualities, experiences, skills, desires and talents ensures that you’re unmatched.
You’re already your strongest competitive edge. There’s nothing more to do or to be. You already are.
Value yourself for all that you are. Recognize the gifts in the exclusive package of magnificence which is you.
The need for external competition and comparisons instantly drop away when you realize, accept and embrace the reality that you’re already exceptionally you.
Your happiness, your abundance, your fulfillment, your service, your purpose – are all inherent parts of you. All that’s required is your awareness, a flow with Divine Guidance and a gratitude for yourself.
You are your competitive edge. Seek, find, embrace and express from within; you will surely shine and succeed.

You’re A Light, Even When Shadows Fall
By your very nature, a child of the Creator, you’re a light. Life has moments and times of darkness and shadows, yet this doesn’t alter your inherent nature of purity and luminescence.
You’ve been birthed from the supreme Light of the Divine. Regardless of what you or another does, or regardless of what you may experience, the genuine permanent nature of your being is radiance.
Shadows pass. And by their very nature, they require light to enable them to even be cast in the first instance.
Think, for instance, of a lunar eclipse – the earth may cast its shadow, yet it’s but only temporary. And behind the shadow, the moon continues to glow as brightly and as iridescently as ever. In fact, both the earth and the moon are in ultimate perfect harmony, each on their own, as well as with one another.
You are perfection exactly as and where you are. Remember this in every moment. Glow, as you’ve been created to glow. It’s only by your own thoughts and feelings that you can feel any less.
Your power, your freedom is in your choices. You’re an integral, amazing part of the Celestial Dance of Life.
Choose in wisdom, living the brightest you. You’re glorious!
HappyWise: Sharmilla 27/07/2018
You’re Perfectly Where You’re Supposed To Be
All is well, dear one. You’re doing great. You’re on your path. If perhaps you’re not precisely where you envisaged yourself being – trust that you’re still perfectly where you’re supposed to be.
Love being where you are.
Appreciate yourself for exactly where you are.
Play and have fun, where you are!
You’ve come a long way, indeed.
You’re amazingly phenomenally on track in the Bigger Scheme of Divinity’s Plan.
Relax. Breathe. Dance free.
Trust that you will eternally continue moving effortlessly forward on your wondrous life journey…

You’re Your Wisest Guide
Trust yourself, dear one. Travel within to your core. Therein lies all answers and solutions to everything.
You’ve been created magnificent by an Omniscient Being. Just as your children are made of your genes / you’re born from the genes of your parents, so too do you carry within your very self the energy of your Divine Creator.
You’re wiser than you give yourself credit for. Become increasingly aware of who you really are – a remarkable being, pulsating Divine Source energy.
All you seek from the Divine, you already have within you. Trust yourself. Love yourself. Allow and accept the best for yourself.
Have fun and be in joy, as you allow the Divine to flow within you, and from you, forever Guiding you through your very own inspired thoughts, dreams, feelings, prayers, wishes, visions, invocations…
Be with you. You’re enchantingly wise.

Set Your Default to ‘Happy’
Remember that regardless of what may be going on in your life, you always have the freedom and power to actively choose how you feel.
Grow and train yourself into a habit of feeling peace, contentment and happiness. This will ensure that even and especially in tougher, trying times, it will be easy and automatic for you to gravitate toward happiness.
Sometimes when you experience equilibrium in your feelings, you may find it easier to move toward less-than-affirming emotions such as worry or anxiety. A reason for this is that you crave feeling something.
Have you considered, however, why it may be more effortless for you to sway toward a feeling of emptiness rather than fulfillment, or a feeling of anxiousness rather than trust, for instance?
Yes, it’s simply an outcome of the way you’ve trained your mind.
Know that it’s just as simple for you to re-train your mind, to suite and serve your own purposes and intentions.
Given a choice – and it indeed is given –choose affirming feelings of wellbeing, vitality, peace, trust, freedom, joy… Make it your go-to response and behavior.
It’s about time you set your default to happiness, isn’t it?!
HappyWise: Sharmilla: 16/06/2018
You Hold All Solutions and Answers
Within yourself, you hold splendid solutions to all challenges you may face. You also hold informing answers to all questions you may have. As an integral and indispensable fragment of Source-energy and all of Life, you are graced with enduring access to infinite Divine Intelligence.
•Accessing Solutions And Answers:
Ask and you shall receive. A simple, yet magnificently potent, truth.
By your very thoughts, self-talk and beliefs, you set the scene for determining your manifestations in life. You play a supremely fundamental role in ordaining your successes and your triumphs.
Gear your thoughts to reach your desired outcomes, place yourself in a position of feeling the feelings of peace, joy, fulfilment and relief associated with your desired end-results, and trust that you will enjoy your outcome.
Keep yourself from getting lost in the details of how exactly things will play out to get you to where you want to be.
Trust in the knowledge that your asking with clarity and intentional purpose, and your continually relaxing in a space of feeling it as already done, will get you to where you need to be.
You’re an awesome co-creator with the Divine.
You’re Divinely cared for.
You’re eternally and infinitely loved.
All is well.

Surrender, Fly Free To Succeed
Control may be a positive quality when it comes to discipline, responsibility, focus and accountability, for instance. It may oftentimes be the fuel behind your perseverance and successes in life. Yet, have you ever noticed the difference in the quality of your feelings between achieving a goal:
As opposed to:
• When you’ve been in an anxiety-filled, rigid and controlling state and space?
Does there seem to be a distinct difference in the quality of each?
•Controlling Your Way To Success:
How does aiming to be in control all of the time, make you feel? Does it relax you? Does it make you feel like you’re conquering the world in an ordered, prepared and sequential way?
Does it stress you out? Does it leave you feeling like you’re living on-edge?
A fact of life is that we cannot control everything. It’s in the nature of things to be changing.
As much as one may succeed at controlling a very large portion of his / her life, one still cannot predict absolutely everything. A reasonably large portion of life is unknown – dependent upon various factors aside from oneself.
What happens then, when you encounter something that’s beyond your control? How do you feel? How do you react? Do you clamor to make sense of things and to restore ‘order’ and ‘control’ as you know it? Or, are you able to easily accept, adapt and go with the flow?
•Surrendering Your Way To Success:
There’s great strength and power in intentionally choosing to surrender. It calls for deep trust – in yourself, in the Universe.
Surrender is one of the most amazing gifts you will ever bestow on yourself.
Allowing you to be in the moment, to live fully and wholly, and to experience life from a space and state of freedom, joy and relief – surrender is being at one with Divine Grace.
Living from a place of surrender will ensure that you always succeed – for from such a place of trust and faith, all is and always will be well. You know, for a fact, that you will always be Divinely Guided.
As an added bonus, you – in wisdom – allow yourself the opportunity to live your life in a continual state of ease and bliss, minus having to be perfect or to have all be perfect. Thriving from a feeling-space of ease and bliss will surely attract greater quantities and qualities of the same to you, as you gently perfect the art of surrendering…

Love Yourself, More, Always
When’s a good time to love you? How often do you shower yourself with just as much love as you do your dearly beloved ones? When is it okay, ‘good’ or even ‘acceptable’ to love yourself truly, deeply, genuinely, abundantly?
… Now. In every moment. Always. Your greatest, deepest and most constant love lives and thrives within you. As much as your love is for sharing, caring and healing of others’, your love is also one of your greatest, simplest gifts to you.
Treasure this Love of Divine Source energy which sings, dances and celebrates Life within your soul, within every molecule and cell of your being.
This phenomenal support, strength and caring is permanently with you, for you – and shall remain with you in every moment, through eternity.
In times of feeling lost, alone or not understood, your spirit calls out to you more than ever for you to be there for you – to reach for your Higher Self, your Spirit Self.
Regardless of what may be going on in your life – trust, know and rest assured that love-essence is your blessing, your grace.
Love yourself, more, always…

Your Spirit Is Invincible
You’re going to be okay. Now. Tomorrow. Five days from now. Weeks, months, years from now. You verily are okay. Always. Forever. Regardless of what may be / will be going on in your life.
You always have been okay. In the past, when you thought you weren’t okay…. You came through, didn’t you? The beautiful you has been gently, lovingly and preciously held and Guided by a Divine force in every moment.
Your body, your mind, your emotions – they’re all fundamental and significantly glorious parts of you. It’s what makes you so wholly wonderfully, beautifully, magnificently human.
Yet, who / what do you think the ‘you’ actually is? For instance, when you say, “My body”, or “My mind”, or “I feel so-and-so”? Who is the ‘my’, who is the ‘I’?
When you feel less-than-perfect in your body, in your thoughts, in your feelings – what / which part of you / who is actually perceiving all of this information?
It’s the perfect you, the intangible you, the ‘you’ that is spirit in essence, the you that knows that All Is Well and always will be well, the you that’s communicating to you that by feeling illness, negativity or ‘less-than-perfection’, you’re merely out of alignment / balance with the natural health, joy, vibrancy and peace that you in essence are; the you that can never be destroyed regardless of external circumstances or bodily / mental / emotional imbalance or illness.
You’re in spirit an invincible you. A you that allows every cell in your body to function brilliantly superbly, without you having to do a thing. The you that’s always reaching to greater heights. The you who desires for better, brighter, happier simply because at your core you know that you deserve the highest and the best, and that all truly is available to you.
You’re in spirit all-peaceful, all-knowing, all-loved, all-loving, invincible – beyond hurt, pain, confusion, chaos, illness or physical death.
The you in spirit is verily an integral, unconquerable, eternal part of the Great Spirit of the Universe.

It Is What It Is… Or, Is It?
So yeah, things are what they are. That much is true. Not much can be done to change anything. … Is this also true? Naah… Things may indeed be as they are in the current moment, yet you always have a choice to influence the direction and outcome from its current point, forward – don’t you think?
•It Is What It Is:
What it is now is merely a culmination of past thoughts, words, actions, behaviors… All which is currently behind you has led up to this moment in time in your life’s reality. Your situation and experience in this moment of time is precisely what it is – yet, it’s still but a moment in time; and but a moment in the entirety of your life.
Your future lies ahead of you, eagerly anticipating you and your joy. What you choose to do with your now moment, sets the scene for that which unfolds before you.
•Choosing to Influence the Highest Direction and Outcome:
At any given time, and within any situation or experience of it being what it is, you hold a magnificent power of choice.
Are you going to plainly accept a less-than-great situation for what it appears to be?
Or shall you influence it for the highest good of yourself and for the highest good of all? “How?”, you ask? By simply choosing to courageously rise from, for instance, a state of despondency, despair and complacency to a happier state of faith, trust, gratitude, peace and contentment.
You see, by the simple action of choosing different thoughts and feelings about any situation, you play a mighty role in shaping the direction it unfolds in and the outcomes you get to play with.
There’s always magic hidden within anything that seems to be plainly ‘it is what it is’. Discover the magic! Have fun with the magic! Create your world to be a world of yes, it is what it is, yet there’s also so very much more – love, wonder, discovery, joy, growth, abundance, peace!

When You’re Put Down, Rise Up and Beyond!
Sometimes, not everyone in life supports you. Sometimes the one(s) you think ‘should’ understand you the most may be the very one(s) who seemingly wage battle against you. It’s not always easy to feel good about yourself when the one(s) you care for the most and hold dearest to your heart, put you down. Yet, it’s up to you whether you allow your spirit to be crushed – wallowing in sadness, self-pity and low esteem; or whether you gloriously rise up – meeting your true God-graced self in joyous acceptance and living your life authentic to your vision, calling and expression!
• Choosing to Stay Down:
Consider for a moment that you have no genuine idea of the true reason(s) which contributed to another suppressing you / mocking you / patronizing you. It could have very little to do with you.
Perhaps you being true to yourself triggered a state of unease / discomfort in the other person based on something completely unrelated to you. Or perhaps it brought up feelings of fear or insecurity in the other.
Whatever the reason, know that it’s always your choice whether you choose to stay where another ‘puts you’; or whether you choose to rise up in making a decision on your own path of forward and upward momentum. How about choosing to believe in yourself and supporting yourself in living your best, highest and happiest life?
• Choosing to Rise Up and Beyond!
Think about it for a moment – do you truly believe that the person who put you down was in their best, most aligned state when they minimized you? Or could they perhaps have been dealing with their own feelings – stress, insecurity, guilt, fear…?
Would a person in true peace, alignment and contentment with themselves derogate another? Especially if the person was a loved-one simply living their life in respect and consideration for all? … Most probably not.
Is it not a freeing thought to believe that each person is doing the best that (s)he is able to with the resources they have available, at any specific time, and in any particular situation?
So, how about simply letting go of the criticisms?
Rise up and BE! You have a God-Ordained purpose. The sooner you realize that remaining in a conflicted space due to the actions of another toward you is not worth it, the quicker you can get on with living and expressing your true Divine purpose.
Your Divine purpose beckons you in every moment to rising over, above and beyond any defeat; toward victory, peace, happiness, expression and love.

All is in Order. Perfect Order. Flowing with the current in trust, faith and relaxation is possibly one of the kindest, most loving things you can do for yourself. This means flowing always toward your greatest wellbeing and joy, regardless of the circumstances around you / the issues you may be facing. It means finding the best in every situation and flowing with the stream of those thoughts, ideas, feelings and actions that carry you toward the light and the blessings.
• All is in Perfect Order:
Think about it for a moment… How much that happens is out of your control – in your own life, in society, in the world? Lots, right? And yet how much of your life has worked out quite amazingly well for you, notwithstanding all that’s happened and may be happening, would you say?
So long as you continue to choose your thoughts for your highest wellbeing and guide yourself constantly toward reaching for feelings of happiness and peace, all will always be well.
• Finding the Best in Every Situation:
Life is change. One of the constants is your inherent value as a human being.
Whatever may be going on, the potential for its opposite is also there. Duality is a natural part of life.
In every situation which you find challenging, there’s always a solution. It will come to you easiest when you bring into your awareness the possibility of a solution existing. Then simply relax in trust and faith, allowing yourself to be open to receiving.
Life is movement. Going with the flow of the movement is natural, easier and uses immensely less energy than pushing against the flow.
Know that you’re Guided always by Source / God / the Universe. Trust in the flow. Glide along your path in lightness and happiness of being…
“Energy cannot be created or destroyed”: remember this ‘First Law of Thermodynamics’ (Albert Einstein)? It’s truly amazingly comforting, is it not? It goes on to state, “Energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another”. Bottom-line is that energy is always available. It comes down to what you choose to do with it. The power to empower yourself by your choices and decisions is in your hands!
• Energy Cannot Be Created or Destroyed:
Think about the sun, for example. It’s always shining gloriously bright. Even at midnight; and yes, even on the cloudiest, foggiest wintry day. It’s just that due to the earth’s rotating motion, we seemingly experience the sun as ‘setting’, ‘rising’, or as having disappeared. The sun is constantly and everlastingly beaming radiantly. So while it appears ‘dark’ at one location, it’s fantastically bright at another location.
Energy is energy. Universal Source energy is always there; abundantly, freely and equally available to all. There’s always more magnificence to what we as humans are able to perceive, experience or see with our eyes at any specific point in time. This is a gift indeed, as light is perpetual and eternal; while ‘darkness’ is merely the absence of light which still exists.
• Your Power to Transform:
If you happen to think of yourself, or any situation in your life, considering the fact that everything is just energy and energy is available bountifully… Isn’t it wonderful to know that within you is an immense natural force and potential to instantaneously transform any state of being from one to another?
You can transform boredom instantly, for example, into motivation and excitement. All you would have to do is change your thoughts. As soon as you think of something new and different to do, your energy of boredom and stagnation triggers to inspiration and action.
Or you can similarly catalyze a state of worry to a state of calm trust and contentment wherein you know that all is okay and in order, simply by choosing your thoughts differently. By the very simple action of altering your thoughts to serve the best in yourself and that which you desire, you literally and physically change the chemical composition of every cell of your being, thereby transforming your energy.
By transforming your energy, you re-direct your life-path.
In each moment, use your God-graced gift to wield your thoughts for your ultimate purpose and outcome.
You Were Born to Thrive
Life is meant to be happy. Feeling a sense of peace, love, wholeness and contentment with yourself and life is natural. Excitement, wonder, carefreeness and enjoyment are vital states of your being. It only looks wonderful, makes sense and feels amazing for you to thrive, and not merely survive, does it not?
Life is Meant to Be Happy:
• Do you believe that it was the Creator’s intention for you to be happy?
• When you feel worry / anxiety / hurt / pain / doubt / insecurity / boredom, can you identify a state that you were in before?
…Was your mood perhaps one of peace / contentment / joy / acceptance / love / excitement?
• What initiated a change in your state?
…Your thoughts, perhaps?
• How do you feel when you allow all less-than-pleasant thoughts to drift away, even in trying situations?
…Don’t you feel free, happy and in control of your life?
• What stops you from choosing this in every possible moment?
…Remember, every situation is multi-dimensional having multiple perspectives; take what is best for you from any situation and move forward with your empowered choice!
It’s Only Natural for You To Thrive:
• The world is abundant with all things you need, want and desire.
• Source / God intended for you to thrive in fulfillment.
• All is well.
• Being happy, having fun and maintaining a state of calm lightness will ensure you’re moving ever deeper into alignment with your purpose(s) and choices.
Play to Achieve Your Dreams:
Whatever you do, ensure that you have fun on your way to reaching your dreams and fulfilling your desires. Balance your seriousness and focused determination with hearty playfulness and relaxation. You’ll easily and effortlessly be well on your way to attaining, maintaining and thriving in the life of your dreams.
The BusYness of Seriousness:
Think about it… Do your best ideas arise during times of seriousness? Or, do they breeze-in naturally floating-by on waves of moments of lightness and freedom?
Planning, diligence and discipline are significant. Temper this with wholesome breaks for rejuvenation and you will be well on your way to success.
The Joy of Fun:
A sure route to optimal performance includes playing, relaxing and resting sufficiently.
Your mind and your body will thrive when you allow yourself comforting and alternatively stimulating down-time also.
The Wisdom of Balance:
Embrace relaxed, enjoyable focus.
See, hear and feel yourself happily and ‘funtastically’ having achieved your dreams!
A magnificently amazing potent co-creator with Divine Source is who you are. By your very thoughts, words, intentions, focus and behaviors, you set the scene for the outcomes in your life. Each of these, and each and all of your longings and desires carry with them energy. This energy determines the vibrations you emit, which in turn determines what you attract into your life. The more clear and focused you are, and the more congruent your thoughts, words and behaviors, the greater the influence and impact on your results.
Your focus determines where your energy flows. Where your energy flows is a consequence of what you decide to give your attention to and place your awareness on.
As you increasingly choose to rid yourself of distractions, interruptions, doubts and insecurities, so you enhance the power of the actualization of your desires by your trust, faith and targeted attention.
Your targeted attention coupled with genuine feelings of ease and belief in your outcome holds the potential of bringing into you the force of untainted alignment.
Alignment, both within yourself and with Source / God / the Universe, is magic in your hands.
You hold a magnificent power within you to influence your world and the world itself. All that’s required is for you to recognize, grasp and carve this capability to suit your intentions and purpose. You will find that the outcomes yielding you maximum happiness, peace and fulfilment are achievable, regardless of what may be going on around you. Listen to your own voice; deliberately guide and steer your results by your own decisions, priorities and focus.
• Voices of Others’ and External Happenings:
Getting caught-up in the chatter and the voices of others’ may be all too easy. This could be a great thing when such voices are in harmony with your own internal voice of wisdom.
Be aware of, and continually actively assess, whether the voices you allow yourself to tune in to are in alignment with your highest good and the outcome(s) you wish to achieve.
Does going with the flow of gloominess, especially during periods of transition or change, for instance, serve your wellbeing in any way? The opinions, judgements and criticisms of others’ will always be there.
You have within you the facility of discernment and reasoning. Choose to embrace, value and exercise it for obtaining the most wholesome harvests in your life!
• Your Voice:
Yes, your internal voice may sometimes seem quieter than the external loud vocalizations of those around you. Yet your internal voice of wisdom is perhaps one of your greatest and most powerful gifts and connections to Source.
It knows you. It’s been with you throughout your life and through all of your life-experiences. It’s gotten you through some pretty trying circumstances and situations.
Trust your internal voice of wisdom and encouragement. Make it one of the primary guiding authorities in your life.
That gentle voice which comes to you in your quietest calmest moments is your thoughts of trust, faith and sunshine. It is the foundational key by which you may deliberately guide and steer your results.
Take your decisions, and establish your priorities and focus from it. The potential for change as you would like it is within you at each and every moment.
Effortlessly and freely choose, moment by moment, to transform any situation or experience for reaping your happiest life.
Know, trust and rest assured in the knowledge that no matter what may be going on in your life at this time, all is well. All is in Divine Order. You’re at this space and place in your life in this very moment not by coincidence, accident or mistake, but for a reason. Feel exactly as you need to feel, do exactly what you need to do, change whatever you desire to change. If needs be, simply take a moment to relax, to breathe in life and to absorb the lull of the unknown, of the seeming ‘imperfections’ and of non-action, while you re-calibrate to the readiness and to the excitement of swinging back into your groove again.
• All Answers Are Within You:
Confusion, uncertainty and doubt are a part of life; they seem to come when you least expect them. You may not be able to banish them completely, yet it’s most certainly within your power and choice to minimize them and any effects they may have upon you.
In your darkest, most trying times, do you more often than not look to another human being for answers? Either for validation of your own thoughts and feelings, or for new direction and input?
Looking to another for guidance and for different varied perspectives may be invaluable when integrated into your decision-making process. Your decisions, however, are ultimately yours. You have within yourself all of the resources and all of God’s Guiding Light that you need in order to make decisions of wisdom.
Listen to yourself, even more than you listen to any other. Trust yourself, even more than you trust any other. Maintain flexibility – with yourself, with situations. Re-visit and / revise anything you may need to. All of life is a learning-curve of growth and evolution.
Smile, be easy on yourself, be your greatest comforter and supporter in life. All is perfect even in imperfection.
• All is Perfection:
Freedom, joy, love, acceptance and light abounds in perfect imperfection! You will find that there’s nothing quite as liberating and as ‘human’ as embracing the messiness in life, in yourself and in others. It’s a space that magnificence springs forth from.
Flow with it, love it, maintain it as is, or change / re-configure it – it’s your opportunity to do with it whatever you wish.
Just as your values and beliefs may not be stagnant throughout life or in all contexts, so too that which seems ‘imperfect’ today may very well lead to and result in the most beautiful amazing perfection you discover in your tomorrow…
And it is then that you’ll find that all indeed is well, just as is.
Freedom and Joy is Yours
At your core, you’re free. The essence of who you are is a spirit of joy and freedom. So, freedom is already a part of you, just like joy is. There’s no need to strive for it, search for it, or work toward it. All you have to do is recognize its presence, allow it to be as significant a part of your life as you desire, and enjoy it.
What are you truly? Are you your career, or your relationship-status? Perhaps a mum, a dad, a sibling, a manager, an employee, a sports(wo)man, a politician, a student, a leader, a man, a woman? Yes, you may be one or more of these; however, minus the labels you’re simply a human being.
In your pure human state, before the labels of what you do, how you’re defined, or what you’ve accumulated through your life, you’re simply a human being. A spirit with a body, doing your best to thrive in a human-conditioned experience.
And in your core immaculate human state, you’re a light free being of love and bliss. You may sometimes tend to think that just as you’ve had to acquire and accrue all in your life, that you also have to endeavor toward freedom or joy.
Yet the absolute glorious beauty is that freedom and joy are both already yours. It’s what was there at the very beginning; it’s what will always remain once all the layers of identity have been peeled away.
Your amazing power lies in being aware of, recognizing and embracing the constant eternal availability of this flexibility and liberty in your life. Bring it into your awareness, truly feel it, and live it in any situation and experience your desire. It’s simply your choice.
Freedom of choice is yours. It is you who ultimately determines what you want to make of a situation. You choose how to respond and proceed from any given point.
Your feelings are actually within your control. They arise with your thoughts. Steer and guide your thoughts in a favorable direction in any situation, and you simultaneously successfully shift your emotions.
Your natural state is joy, so you don’t have to chase after it. It’s already with you, within you.
Let go of the worry, the doubt, the anxiety – you will find that all that remains is peace, calm, love and happiness. Flow with its beauty, dance with its energy, laugh with its frivolity – for as long as you fancy.
Maneuver Your Attention to Maximize Your Intention
Identify that which you desire / which you hope to achieve. Align your thoughts, feelings and attention to having that / those thing(s). Allow all things that do not match the state you desire to drift past your awareness. Focus on the joy and fulfilment of accomplishing the outcomes you desire. You, being naturally one with the Universal Creator, are the primary creator in your life.
Your intention is your purpose, your seed, your starting-point, the core of your desire.
Craft your intention. Personalize it. Be sure that it’s what you really want and that it’s what will serve your best overall interests.
Most significantly, allow and encourage yourself to feel the fulfilment, the happiness, the joy, the exhilaration, the peace and the comfort of having your intention / purpose achieved, even while it’s still germinating.
Nourish your intention and purpose with all of the care and love it needs to flourish, blossom, bloom and thrive.
A plant requires adequate water, sunlight and fertile soil to grow healthily and beautifully. Feed your awareness, your mind, your body and your emotions only with those things that progress your outcome.
Ignore / eliminate those things (thoughts, feelings, doubts, judgements, perceptions) that don’t positively contribute toward the achievement of your outcome. Snip away distractions that may move you out of alignment with your purpose.
Act with your energy and your attention directed and focused on trust, faith and belief in the fulfilment of your desire and the achievement of your purpose.
Having aligned your thoughts, feelings, awareness, focus and actions with your desired purpose and intent, relax into welcoming wondrous creations into your life. You’re a powerful creator in your life.
Value Your Infinite Worth
You determine your worth: only and solely you. Your worth, which is vast, boundless and immeasurable, lies not in the hands or the eyes of what any other perceives you to be or values you as. Most significantly, your worth and your value is inherent; independent of anything you’ve done, anything you do, or anything anyone has done to you at any stage of your life.
See yourself for all of the immense goodness that you are. Engage in loving, kind and encouraging thoughts and conversations with yourself.
Give yourself the benefit of the doubt more often, trusting yourself. Absorb the comforting, supportive energy in the simple action of holding your own hand.
Even though you may be blessed in having abundant love, support, caring and understanding in your life; you’re still ultimately the only human who knows yourself so completely, so fully, so truly.
Acknowledge yourself. Trust yourself. Forgive yourself. Love yourself. Be true in every moment to the best in yourself.
Shine in happiness 😌
How often do you value the opinions of another more than your own? How often are your feelings, thoughts and actions swayed by what another thinks (of you) / feels (toward you) / says (about you); or by how another treats you?
Regardless of what another may think of you / do to you, know that none other but yourself determines your worth.
Each person has his / her own story. Each person is coming forth into your life with his / her own pre-conditionings, wants, needs, desires, experiences, beliefs and insecurities perhaps.
Pegging your value on what any other deems you to be worth means that your sense-of-self will never be constant but will fluctuate as per the ever-evolving dictations, judgements and estimations of others.
You hold the power of determining and interpreting the role that you’d like somebody to play in your life-story (if any).
Do you perhaps gain your sense-of-worth and value based upon what you do to earn a living? Or perhaps based upon who loves you and / or who is dependent on you for love and care?
If so, what happens if these things no longer hold true in your life? For instance, if you no longer have a job to define yourself by? Or if your primary significant relationships are no more for some reason?
Does your worth decline? Should it decline?
God has Created you in perfection, dear one (regardless of how imperfect you may be in your human-conditioned experience). If you must look to another, aside from yourself, either for approval, or to determine your value and worth, look to Him, who is nonetheless integrated with you.
You will find that you’re stronger, braver, more beautiful and more magnificent than you’ve ever allowed yourself to imagine or experience.
Aaaah, to be happy and free… The lightness and joy of just ‘being’ – a state available to you in every moment. Regardless of where you are, who you’re with, who and what your commitments and responsibilities are toward, how you may be perceived or judged by another, where you’ve come from or what you’ve done, it is you who is ultimately in control of your each and every moment. By the choices of your thoughts, your points of focus and your responses to situations, circumstances and experiences beyond your control, you hold within yourself the power of your freedom.
Your thoughts… oh, the immensity and the elation of the creative power which lies therein! Yes, by your very thoughts you mold your world. Focus on uplifting, happy thoughts in any circumstance, and you naturally set the scene for the unfoldment of your wellbeing. If things could go wrong, they could also go right!
Allow your thoughts to flow in the direction of your inspiration, and experience yourself gravitate toward exhilaration and fulfilment. Similarly, allow any less-than-satisfying thoughts to drift over, across and past your mind… freely, effortlessly…
Your choices now and in every moment in where you choose to take your mind, lays the foundation for determining the direction of your future and the path you walk forward. The selection of freedom over imprisonment is yours to embrace; choose wisely.
Your Points of Focus:
Blessings abound. You have total and complete freedom of choice in terms of where you place your attention and what you choose to focus upon.
Remember, what you dedicate your energy toward is what and where your life will move toward. Focusing upon the blessings, opportunities, joys and wholesomeness in any situation will ensure that you’re consistently moving along your highest life-path.
Make the best of the rest, permitting yourself a growth of freedom and a freedom of growth.
Your Responses to Situations, Circumstances and Experiences:
Be a victor over the situations, circumstances and experiences you find yourself within. Take the time you need (even, and perhaps especially, when you feel driven to act immediately).
Respond with action after consideration where possible, having guided your thoughts and points of focus intentionally and in awareness for your greatest good.
Trust that there is perfection to be found in even the most challenging of times. All is in Order. Float free in your knowingness and trust in the Greater Plan of Life.
‘Now’ Is Your Best Time
How often do you find yourself putting-off something that you’d love to do / procrastinating, simply ‘cos a voice in your head whispers to you that all is not yet ideal and that you should wait? Clear priorities and responsible decision-making are a great way to go indeed; so too, there’s wisdom in solidly assessing any situation. Yet, all being situation and context-dependent of course, have you ever considered that ‘now’ may actually be your best time?!
There’s Perfection in Your Now
This moment is your most valuable time. The past is done, the future is variable, now is the time most in your power. Accept your now, maximizing it for your wellbeing and happiness – even if this means contentedly accepting things which are beyond your control. Remember, the sh*t is not going to last for forever. By finding your peace in the now, you set the scene for the unfoldment of your future moments…and so it goes.
There’s fragments of perfection in your now, regardless of what may be going on. Embrace feeling good in the moment, no matter how ‘small’ or large a blessing you may have been granted. Absorbing and appreciating the feeling of an invigorating shower, or the fresh scent of rains upon the earth, or the happy sound of crickets chirping, or the free-flow of energy after a good workout – all magnificent ways of sensing, embracing perfection in your present.
Do what you want to, get active in your now; what will come, will come – let the future be. Be not afraid of what could go wrong; imagine, think and focus upon all the wonderful things that could go right. Wait not on the ‘perfect moment’; make it, create it, for yourself – now and in each moment that you so choose! Gifts and blessings abound for your taking.
Right Now, You’re the Youngest You’ll Ever Again Be
Do you sometimes think, “I’m too old for that!”? Whether it relates to something you’d like to do / experience, or perhaps an item of clothing you know in your heart (and skin) you’d feel fabulous in, or possibly even a long-term relationship that you’d like to change in some way?
Has the ‘age factor’ ever stopped you from doing what you might’ve otherwise done? If so, ponder on this: in this very moment, you’re the youngest you’ll ever again be!
Yes, in this moment, you’re the youngest you’ll ever again be!
And so it goes from this moment to your next, and your next…
So really – do you still think it’s a good idea to wait? Or to not now joyously and bravely do what your spirit sings to you to do?
Inhale Magnificent Life
Your time, dear one, is now,
Inhale Magnificent Life,
Bid sweet farewell to the strife.
You’re divinely connected to Source,
On immaculate course with the Universe;
Feel the Love: the love that is yours, the love that is you,
Be the love: a love that you crave, a love so true.
Dance, smile, laugh, play, fly free,
Be all and even more of who you long to be;
You’re amazing, blessed, perfect,
Of your own life, you’re the chief architect.
You’re peace at your core,
Now even more-so than before;
Become aware of the miracles,
Embrace with abandon the abundant gifts in your life physical,
Intellectual, emotional, spiritual.
Stop Waiting, Start Living!
Ever consider how much time you spend ‘waiting’ on something or someone? Yet surely what’s going to happen will happen? So why procrastinate with your life in anticipation, doubt, worry, anxiety, uncertainty? Make a wise simple choice: embrace each moment of your life with purpose and focus, living every moment fully and joyfully, doing what brings you happiness! And while you’re ‘living’, those awaited ‘happenings’ will spontaneously transpire.
Embrace Each Moment of Your Life with Purpose:
A moment is but an instant in your life, true. Yet each and every moment adds up. Does waiting and obsessing on an outcome make the awaited happen sooner? Nope. In fact, it possibly makes the time appear more drawn-out and burdensome, prolonging your agony.
Dedicating yourself to happy, fulfilling and purposeful activities, however, will ensure calmness of your being and a natural flow with the Universe. Once you’ve achieved clarity of your outcome, actioned your intentions and done what’s needed to be done, let it go. The rest will follow without any action and stressing on your part.
Continue living your life fully, on purpose and with purpose. There is much loving, experiencing, playing and working to be done in the moment, in now. It requires your presence, your participation, your energy!
You will find that creating and living purposefully is a part of the bigger-picture of joyously and inevitably manifesting that which you may be waiting on.
Embrace Each Moment of Your Life with Focus:
Focus not on what you don’t yet have (the ‘awaited’); focus upon what you do have. Your life is already brimming with blessings and love (it is!). Recognize the blessings for that which they are; savor the fruit in gratitude and appreciation.
You will find that while you’re living from a space of fulfilment and joy in embracing your current abundance, more will flow – naturally, freely, bountifully.
Turn your attention happily and effortlessly toward trust, faith, knowingness. Your attitude of being cheerfully focused on each present moment will stimulate an energy of positivity around and within you.
Consciously decide to live each moment of your life with purpose and focus; be assured that goodness, happiness and fulfilment will ripple and flow. The world is full of goodness and bliss, just ‘waiting’ on your taking 😌
Gifts in Rejection
The feelings arising from being refused, unaccepted, dismissed or even simply unacknowledged usually make us feel imperfect, unworthy and small. It may even trigger feelings of abandonment. Yet, there are many a gift and blessing to be found in rejection, a few of which include: freedom; self-acceptance; and trusting the flow of life.
In any relationship situation, whether personal or professional, your acceptance or not is usually dependent upon the judgements and perceptions of another human being toward you. I say ‘human being’ ‘cos we often tend to place the value of the person doing the rejecting at a higher level than we value ourselves. Yet yes, he / she too is human.
Equally so, every person / organization has preferences and needs. These are most probably based on their own past experiences, as well as on their current desires and needs. Should you not fit into their plans, accept it with contentment for what it is; in the knowledge and trust that both you and the other party will find a match.
After all, you want to be wanted, needed, valued and loved for all that ‘you’ are, right? If you’re not that fit for somebody, allow them to move on to their fit. Your own fit definitely exists and is more wonderful than you currently imagine. He / she / they will love, accept, value and adore you (mostly) for all that you are, as you are – and you will know it and feel it.
In the interim, embrace the glorious feelings of lightness and abandonment which can blossom and bloom from rejection. A definite positive is that you now know where you stand. Bid farewell to simmering in uncertainty or to waiting on the approval of another.
Focus. On yourself. Create your own path. You may choose to change something learned from your experience, or you may simply move forward with accepting yourself wholly and fully for all of the Spirit-created wonder which you are. The choice and decision is completely yours – to move forward in freedom from this point onward.
Your rejection by someone is not a reflection of your value or your worth. Neither is it a reflection of your lovability.
Nothing external (mistakes made, shortcomings, foibles) changes the being that you are. Everyone is on a learning path. It’s a continual process of growth and evolution. And regardless of how ‘perfect’ another may seem to be, know that he / she is no more ‘perfect’ than you yourself are. Just as you don’t know their full story, so too, they don’t know your full story.
You’re the writer of your own story. Take the lead, be the lead and script your story your way. Generously include all of the awesomeness and magnificence which is already you!
You’re lovable. You’re so very valuable. Perfectly as you are. Yes, in all of your imperfections and humanness. It’s up to ‘you’ to accept you: in your heart, in your mind, at your core.
Embrace yourself; in joy, in confidence, in love. Shine.
Trusting the Flow:
When rejected, trust that it’s okay. And that it’s most possibly even a part of the Greater Plan for your life, which you cannot clearly see at this moment in time.
Life is about change, this too shall pass.
Hold on to the best in yourself; let all else go.
Flow with the current of the river, allow it to guide and carry you; battle not against it. Surely, in its Greater Natural Wisdom, it will carry you to a space and to a place which is optimally peaceful, happy and fulfilling for you.
When you glance back upon your life later down the line, trust that perfection is what you will see and feel 😌
What is happiness? Where does it come from? How do you get more of it, more of the time? It’s mostly a choice of an attitude and a perspective, while there are several things which you can do on a practical level to boost your happiness. By these 6 simple indulgent actions, you’ll be on your way: 1) Simplify; 2) Do an activity you enjoy; 3) Love your Body; 4) Stimulate your Mind; 5) Merge with Purpose; 6) Celebrate!
Simplify your life by eliminating things and routines which no longer contribute toward your overall wellbeing. Sometimes we hold on to things, behaviors and familiar ways of being and doing simply ‘cos it’s what we know and it’s the way “it’s always been done”, even if it may not optimally serve our current purposes and lifestyle.
The more you de-clutter, the more energy and free-flow you will naturally experience in your life.
Playing is wonderful for your heart, mind, body and spirit.
What this entails to you, how you do it, where or with whom is of no consequence – just make sure that you do it; and that you do it often!
Time is limited, true; you have serious responsibilities, also true. So if you must, schedule time(s) to engage in activities which you enjoy. The power of its renewal-factor upon your energy-levels and enthusiasm will most probably also override the procrastination-factor to engage in those activities you don’t enjoy as much.
Your natural state of life is flow and happiness. Therefore, why not spend as much, or (logically) more, time on activities that truly make your heart sing?
Your body registers and responds superbly to your thoughts, emotions, the foods you nourish it with, the air-temperature and atmospheric pressure, amongst an array of other things.
The sights of your dearest ones or a glorious sunrise, the scent of raindrops freshly spattered upon the earth, the playful chirping of the birds in the trees, the tantalizing dance of flavors upon your tongue, the glorious feel of warm sunshine on your skin, the explosiveness of tender raw orgasm…
Intuitive healing of wounds and of disease, the creation of inflammation to protect your body from further injury, the production of pain to alert you of something not-so-right, the regeneration of cells…
These are but some of the innumerable gifts of your body to you. It works miraculously all on its own, without reminders from anyone and in perfect harmony and unison with what needs to be done moment to moment. It re-balances, heals and restores.
Keep your body happy by luxuriating it in a few simple things: care, nourishment, exercise, ample rest and relaxation. Pay heed to it too when it whispers to you (preferably so that it doesn’t have to reach a stage of having to scream at you to bring your attention to what’s going on).
Your body’s your greatest gift and anchor in this lifetime; guiding you always toward wholesome wellbeing and happiness. Love your body.
A supple and agile mind is the core of your happiness and wellbeing. Your experiences may sometimes be beyond your control; yet the perspectives you decide to choose about your experiences determine your path forward.
An engaged mind with a curiosity about the wonders of life will ensure that you’re always at your peak, regardless of what may come your way.
Remember also to sufficiently rest your mind though.
There’s great joy to be found in engaging purposefully. Your sense of fulfilment will be proportionate to the meaning you attribute to your undertakings.
Happiness gained from purpose fulfilled is of a different quality to happiness gained from activities engaged in solely to quell boredom, to pass time, or to fulfil routine without exactly remembering ‘why’.
Things to be thankful for and appreciative of are many. Embrace them; celebrate them!
They don’t have to be mind-blowing super-successes, or even traditional occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or the New Year. Neither do ‘celebrations’ have to be elaborate undertakings.
Honor the first rains of the season with a mug of hot-chocolate, celebrating the cozy comfort of your home, for instance.
It’s your awareness of the gifts present all around in your everyday life, coupled with your intention of purposeful gratitude, which will forever guide you toward more meaningful happy celebrations…
Do you long to live and thrive in happiness more often? What’s holding you back? Possibly some of the things which you have in your life, rather than things you don’t have? By assessing your current space and determining your ‘nice’-space / your optimal-space, you have the power to choose whether letting go will feed your happiness.
What sorts of thoughts, feelings, situations and experiences are you predominantly keeping for company these days?
Freedom, lightness, joy, living-in-the-moment? A passion for life? A sense of fulfilment, peace and calm? Love, trust, faith, inner quiet, knowingness and serenity? Are you primarily maintaining these thoughts, feelings and outlooks regardless of the circumstances, situations and experiences which come your way?
Or might you perhaps be leaning primarily toward anxiety, fear, anger, disappointment, sadness, doubt, envy, jealousy? Rejection? Hurt? Pain? Doubt? Uncertainty? Betrayal? Judgement? Worthlessness? Guilt?
Are you perhaps being weighed down by the burden of a secret? Insecurity? Loneliness? Tension? Stress? A need to be perfect? The approval of another? Responsibility that isn’t yours to bear? Being caged in preconceptions? Drama? A mistake made? The past? The future (in your ‘waiting’)?
Your status? Your position? Your title? Your salary?
Are you holding on to a gorgeous pair of shoes that pinch at your little-toe with every step you take? A luxurious coat which you haven’t worn in years ‘cos there hasn’t been a ‘special’ enough occasion to wear it to yet?
With contemplation and an enhanced awareness of the types of thoughts and feelings you predominantly experience, comes your power to choose what type of space you would actually like to be in.
Your thoughts may be random and may also often be based upon subconscious influences, true. Yet it is you who ultimately commands the power and free-will choice of what you hold on to and what you let go of on a conscious level.
By nature’s law, that which you choose to focus on is usually strengthened, while that which you diminish significance toward slackens its power to influence you.
What do you want to strengthen and grow in your life? Your happiness and your freedom? Perhaps your trust and your faith? Peace and calm? If so, that’s where you would do best focusing your attention.
Let the worry and anxiety go; ease up on the doubt (particularly on the self-doubt); and stay clear of the path of being swept up in, or contributing to, chaos and clutter.
Keep in mind that situations and circumstances can change in an instant by factors either within or beyond your control – both whether you choose to hold on to things or whether you choose to let go.
Yet now that you know what benefits your life positively and places you in a ‘nice’-space, it should be easier to let go of those things which don’t; or at least to loosen you attachment to, and the level of significance you attribute to, certain things.
Remember that you choose to hold onto something when it serves a purpose in your life. Only you can determine if the qualities of that purpose and the impact it has upon your life benefits you in the long-term on a human level.
By ‘human level’ I mean that sometimes when you don’t have much / are at rock-bottom, you realize how blessed you are with the simple things which you do have in life. If you lose your job which you placed much significance on, for instance, you come to realize that who you inherently are is not dependent upon the work you did, or upon what others thought of you in your position regardless of how much in others’ esteem you may have been held.
If an illness befalls you, or if you’re involved in an accident and lose a limb; you’re still the same person. Your capabilities may shift, yet your value and your lovability remains. And under such circumstances you may even develop abilities of previously-latent potentials.
Things change. Life changes. The superficial attributions of what society considers to be ‘valuable’ fluctuate from moment to moment, and may even be dependent on what is ‘fashionable’ at a specific time. Your genuine worth and value always remains.
The more often you choose to let go of / reduce the value of non-beneficial elements, the easier it is to do. Your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors sculpt neural pathways in your mind. When you repeat something often enough (for instance, a thought or an action), it becomes easier and easier for your mind to identify with and a pattern is developed. These dominant patterns become your go-to responses in situations.
Why not nurture your go-to-response to being that of letting-go of that which doesn’t impact your life to genuine happiness and joy 😌
Don’t wait on the ‘special’ moments; your every ‘now’ moment is a special moment; choose to make it so, and so will it be 😌
Choose wisely. Let go, breathe, flow free, smile 😌
2 Universal facts of life: 1. Upsetting situations will constantly be around; 2. A moment is a moment that cannot be gotten back. Isn’t it therefore most logical a choice to make peace and let go; directing your focus toward your own wellbeing, contentment and happiness in as many moments as possible?
Make peace with it upfront, now, once-and-for-all: there’ll constantly be situations, experiences and people to upset you. Try as you may, you cannot control this; it’s just a (wonderfully cr*ppy!) part of life. 😌
Hehehehe, as an equalizer, sometimes you’re the one in the role of the ‘upsetter’ (the one doing something to result in another being upset) – unintentionally, of course; while someone else is the ‘upsetee’ (upset with you).
Either way, it’s just human nature that things sometimes don’t flow according to your vision or your plan; and you don’t always get your desires, wants and needs met (or sometimes you do, but not to the standards you expect).
So why not simply choose to laugh at the reality of a situation, accept it for what it is, let go and move on as care-freely and as peacefully as possible? After all, it’s almost certain that nobody else (certainly not the person upsetting you) is paying the situation as much attention as you yourself are. Neither is anyone else wasting any energy over it.
Make peace (even if it’s the best kind – just quietly internally with yourself). Let go, move on, be happy!
…Remember to press replay when the next situation rolls around. 😌
You’re driving down a middle-lane of the highway, following all of the road-rules, and with your awareness in peak form. You’re merrily whistling along to your favorite tune and you’re in the flow while you’re maximizing your good feelings before arriving at the office for a crazy day ahead…
You made a conscious decision to be happy, well done! 😌
Then, another driver whizzes by you and honks his horn endlessly, sticking his middle-finger out of his car-window…
Of course, it’s a baffling and upsetting situation to say the least, ‘cos you obviously don’t know where his actions originated from.
How do you react? Do you instantly sign-language him also? Do you give chase? Do you allow the experience to consume you for the remainder of your drive? Do you perhaps vent to colleagues at work (which almost certainly spirals into at least a 20minute complaining-session about the state of the traffic in general)?
Or do you, in all of your wisdom and care for yourself, decide to give the situation the few seconds of attention that it deserves (albeit if only to get over the shock), and move on with the balanced flow of your life again?
Perhaps even wish the seemingly crazy guy well, in your heart and in your mind? After all, who knows what’s going on his life, or what that incident was really about? Or even if it was truly intended to be directed at you?
Challenging situations and experiences – sometimes heart-wrenching, mind-numbing, spirit-sapping and mind-boggling – will come along in life. It’s not like there’s going to be any shortage of cr*ppy moments for you to deal with.
So why choose anything other than peace and calm (if not outright happiness) in each other moment that you’re actually capable of doing so?
A moment spent in being upset, angry, disappointed or fearful is a moment of your life lost. All the moments of your life make up your lifetime. Given a choice, wouldn’t you choose to be in happiness and peace in each moment, rather?
Each moment is your moment. Choose how you feel in every moment. Brighten your thoughts and allow your emotions to automatically lighten.
Let go, choose you, it only makes sense! 😌
It’s true, happiness is a subjective thing. What makes another happy may not necessarily make you happy. Yet, your happiness is truly not dependent on any other. Your perspective, your attitude and your action-choices are 3 valuably amazing things that you already have to be happy…
Have you ever noticed how different things look when you’re standing at a point, or even driving from one point to another; as opposed to the way they look when you scan the picture from an aeroplane or from the vantage point of a high building?
This is just a matter of perspective. From one point, your vision is somewhat limited; from the other, your vision is vastly expanded.
When you’re engulfed in a situation or an experience which doesn’t feel good, gently remind yourself that you’re in a limited-perspective space.
Regardless of what’s going on or how much you may be able to see, know that there’s a bigger picture and more at work than you may be aware of at a certain point in time. And even though all you may see is the dark gloomy clouds, the magnificent sun surely is there!
Choose a perspective which brings you peace and happiness. Trust. Surely from this, light will flow.
Aaaaah yes, the amazing power of your thoughts! Why not choose to use them wisely, for your own maximum wellbeing and happiness?!
It’s not easy to control your thoughts, I agree; particularly when circumstances challenge. Yet, have you ever considered that you don’t have to control them? Let yourself off the hook, breathe deeeep and eeeasy. Allow your thoughts to flow; while you merely direct them toward a happier outlook and chosen outcome for yourself.
Creating more and deeper levels of happiness and contentment in your life doesn’t have to be an instant thing. Embrace it for what it is – a process of gradual, conscious transformation.
With an attitude of happiness, what quality of experiences will follow, do you think?
Seeing things with an expanded awareness (your perspective) and thinking more positively (your attitude) over a sustained period of time, should have the automatic and joyous side-effect of generating different actions.
The action-choices you make are then but the gifts of your evolved perspective and attitude. And when your action-choices change, know for certain that your experiences will change!
How amazingly and wonderfully powerful is it to know for a fact that you already possess the primary things that you need to be happy?! 😌
