Life appears so complicated at times, but happiness is really not as illusive as we have been led to believe. It seems we humans have been so deeply programed to make our pursuit of happiness so complicated. First of all, happiness is not a pursuit. It is the essence of our being. It’s not about doing anything. Happiness happens when we DROP into our being. “Drop” implies surrender our mind’s concerns so we can become more present to the miracle of NOW.
What drops into what?
We drop into our Being.
You can see it like your awareness drops into Source, Soul, God, Love, or whatever you want to call it. You can also see it as: Your Soul drops more fully into your body. We can think of your Soul or Source as the same as your Happiness. The cause of unhappiness is your Soul not being fully present, in your body, and grounded on Earth…. and mind not being surrendered into your Source. Our negative thoughts and feelings tend to be the road bock. We are as healthy and happy to the degree we are showing up here and now without resistance. When your Soul fully shows up (and you are surrendered to your divine source) , you’re in “the zone.” You can’t go “wrong” because you are the Soul-ution to every challenge. Proof of this is – you are still here! You have survived every challenge, and you always will because your Soul is eternal.
Invest a moment to feel how amazing it is to be alive here and now with no real threat. Just relax into the now, finding contentment with what you already have, and from this awareness you can begin to forget your problems and see only solutions.
Unhappiness is caused by all our excuses for not enjoying the gifts of each present moment, like blaming our government for why our life is not working the way we want it. Actually, every experience holds a gift. I see Trump and a republican congress are here as a gift because we, the people, have not been standing up and speaking up loud enough for our values. I love the saying: “When the people lead, the leaders will follow!” Instead of just complaining and blaming, now is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to be “Standing Rocks” for a more Just and Free America!
We are unhappy when we believe in our mind’s story about why our life has to be a struggle. This leads many of us into unhealthy habits and addictions to escape the pain we feel.
How do we get our Soul (and happiness) back? By refusing to believe any fear based story, whether you read it on the internet or made it up yourself, regardless of the apparent evidence.
While we all have much memory in our human DNA programmed with fear and limitation, the True Spiritual Self I AM (YOU ARE) is always free to choose new thoughts, feelings and behavior that is independent of the past. For example, no matter how many times you have failed at an endeavor, whether that be in your career or in relationships, and no matter how much your family has made similar mistakes, you can wipe it all clean now. Pull out the divine eraser!
You can make this a ceremony now. Imagine the Infinite Creative Power of the Universe is now united with your Consciousness. Call forth your Divine Source) to erase all past suffering and negative beliefs. You can erase everything but the wisdom gained so you can begin again, fearlessly choosing what you deserve in 2017 and beyond! This is how we change our DNA! We disempower limited thoughts, and amplify our YES to what we are choosing. It may feel like uncomfortable and unfamiliar territory. Birthing your new life can even feel painful, but it is a “good pain”. Get over your past and believe in your creativity as you have never done before! You are a Creator Being made in the image and likeness of your creator!
When we lived by the program “to pursue happiness” we found ourselves on a endless hamster wheel overworking jobs we don’t love so we will have the perceived stuff of happiness in the future. But the outcome is eventually opposite: By ignoring our real happiness each day, we go out-of-body and eventually wind up with medical bills and finally dead with our song left in us. Instead of smelling the roses of each present moment, while in tunnel vision of our narrow agenda we are not much fun to be with, and so our relationships also suffer and whether away. This has been the plight of America, a nation of workaholics.
On the other hand, when we make our happiness today our highest priority, day by day, our Creative and Loving Soul shows up in amazing ways and we become a natural magnet for the most awesome opportunities. It really is that simple. Happiness is an attitude that ushers in your Soul’s magic. No matter what you’re dealing with, you can choose to be light with it. You can stop taking anything personally. You can love what arises and watch it transform.
Don’t worry about the so called bad news. It has a purpose to remind you to be a contributor to the solution. No need for overwhelm. The world is what it is. It’s not meant to be utopia, at least not today. There is perfection within the appearance of imperfection – as this earth operates like a giant schoolroom allowing room for each person’s experience, growth and learning exactly as is. Everything is happening all the time: The worst things you can imagine and the most amazing things beyond belief. What matters is what channel you choose to be on. If you don’t like the frequency you’re on, simply change the channel and you will attract that higher joy vibration into your life and you will be joining a growing number of us who are raising the planet’s collective frequency to a higher consciousness of greater loving.
Sometimes its really hard to choose your happiness because old trapped emotions and associated negative beliefs have piled up for a long time creating a seemingly out of control momentum. Get help. I do not recommend the kind of help that labels you with a mental disorder and prescribes you drugs. Toxic emotional memories really can be swiped out without altering your chemistry. If you would like to clear out the exact emotions and beliefs that block your happiness, we invite you to attend our next Accelerated Healing Group or get a private session.
Have a HAPPY New Year!
