Don’t just feel happy, Be happy

waterfall-in-small-waterstream-2

There’s lots of talk today about feeling good.  Think thoughts that feel good.  Good advice.  Better advice is to BE Happy rather than just stopping at the feeling happy level.

Happy is who you are.  Really, it’s true, you are the energy of joy, love, peace and abundance.  You can create experiences that are outside this and even believe yourself to be something else, but the truth is always there.

You are joy.  Line up your thinking with that.  Get your feelings in the groove of Being rather than just feeling.  Happiness is not found outside you.  It’s not found by experiences.  Your state of Being that you are identifying with is what brings about the experiences.

Take a few minutes today to sit in stillness and think/feel about Being Happy.  Let it bubble up and flow from you.  That’s the way.

The Joy of Being Your Creative Self

Let Joy Be your EnergyDo you know that you can choose the state of your Being?  You can decide to Be joy.. even when things are going on around you that are not to your liking. Make up your mind that you decide your State of Being, not the things happening in your life.

This is easy, it’s simple.  You have only to change your habits.  I know that sounds like a big order, but it only takes a month to change a habit.  You shift into a new way of Being through action, thought and feeling.

Most folks have learned to go through life reacting to what’s going on around them.  They have forgotten that they are the creative power that calls forth into physical form all these experiences to interact with.  As long as you stay caught up in reacting to the external you will continue in this loop.

BUT.. when you realize that YOU are the one doing all the creating things take on a different energy.  Now you can begin creating what you want to experience, you can decide whether or not to react to what is already present or to go within and see a new way of experiencing, adding your feelings and thoughts, combining new actions to bring forth a new creation.

This is the power that you ARE.  Make a choice right now to BE joy.  Go ahead, take a few deep breaths, as you exhale think, feel, and say.. JOY.  Feel that shift?  It’s instant.  Do it a few more times.  Now move gently into what you would like to experience.  Keep going with the breaths, they keep you calm and focused.  Feel yourself as the person experiencing the new situation.  Touch the experience with your mind, with your feelings and your energy.

By doing this exercise many times throughout the day for a month you will develop the habit of JOY.  You will know yourself as the energy that creates.  You will create more in line with what you really desire to experience.

How do you stay focused on Being happy?  I’d love to hear from you.. leave me a comment.

You are NOT Ready to Really Be Happy

You want to know how I know you are not ready to be happy?

I know because if you really wanted to be happy, you would be.

You are not happy because you are not ready to let go of thinking about and feeling about, talking with others about.. all the things you feel unhappy about.

As a coach I hear from people all the time who say to me that they want to be happy, they want to be rich, they want to be well.

They don’t really want this.

They are not willing to change one drop of thinking or feeling so that things can change for them.

Any state of Being is the product of your thinking and feeling that way.. acting that way.

How can you Be happy when all your conversation is about things that make you feel unhappy?

You can’t.

Thoughts always become things when given your attention with great passion.

The other day I asked a coaching client what she really wanted.  She responded that it was more about what she didn’t want.

Ok, I said, then tell me what you don’t want.

She didn’t want to be broke, she didn’t want to experience bounced checks, etc.

I had her write down the top five things she didn’t want and then flip them to what it was that she really wanted.

Ah, she exclaimed.. finally understanding that by putting all her energy into what she didn’t want.. she just kept getting more of that.

Being happy does not require everything in your life to be just as you want to experience it.  That’s putting the cart before the horse.

The law of attraction, the secret to experiencing is imagination combined with passion.. followed by inspired action.

Can you feel happy right where you are?

Of course you can.  Think about things that feel good to you.  Continue to work with this energy even if you have to think about things that have already happened.

You might even enjoy playing the “wouldn’t it be nice game”.  Just say, wouldn’t it be nice if all my bills were paid with money left over to go out and eat?

Continue in that vein of thought and watch your mood change.

Being Happy is a state of mind.. which creates circumstances to match the mood.

Be Happy…

I’ve written a powerful ebook that teaches you how to change your thinking and your feelings.  Discover the secret to Being Happy.. to Being whatever state you wish to experience.

Taking Stock of Happy Choices

 

Now and again we like to stop and take stock of our investments, life experiences and opportunities.  This is a great idea as it keeps you on track and makes your progress real and tangible. 

Taking stock of your happy choices is also very important.  Most of us don’t realize how many choices we make each day about our feelings.  We over hear conversations and have an emotional reaction.  Listening to the news brings about instant emotion, as do movies and reality shows.

We are constantly making a decision about our state of feelings, our emotions. 

Connections have been made through years of practice linking the dots from things that look the same to always feeling the same.  It’s instant.  It doesn’t require any thought at all.. something happens and without being aware of the process.. YOU FEEL a certain way.

Being aware of the choices throughout the day brings things into focus.  Once you start paying attention to how you feel you start to get an idea of how you got to that feeling place.  Trace back what you were thinking and or doing right before you realized your feeling place wasn’t a great vacation spot.  By connecting the dots from thoughts to feelings.. you clear out a space to consciously decide what you are going to feel by deciding on your thoughts.

Thoughts are powerful and turn into things if given much headway.  Thinking something a few times makes it come alive in your feelings.  Once in your feelings things really begin to grow and take shape. 

Interrupt the process by being aware of your feelings.  Decide to make happy choices.  When you get it that your thought promote feelings.. you will be more easily able to trade one set of thoughts for another that leads to a better feeling place.

It’s like going on vacation.  You get online and look at pictures to see the layout of the hotel and the city you want to visit.  It doesn’t look and feel right so you make another choice.  By using the process of asking yourself “how does this feel”? you can just simply decide to take an imagined vacation in your head and emotions somewhere else.

Your feeling are important.. the road to them is always your thoughts.  When you take stock of happy thoughts, you begin making happy choices.  How does it feel is always a good place to start your journey.

Enjoy the Happy Choices in your life thought and feeling by thought and feeling.

 

I have written a powerful new ebook that helps you to let go of the past and move fully into the present.  Learn to Be Happy and make Happy Choices each day.  Step by step guidelines bring understanding and insight into what’s going on in your life.

Start Right Where You Are This Very Minute

Where you are right now is your starting point.

Tomorrow isn’t here and yesterday only continues to exist because you pay so much attention to the things of the past.

Abraham says, “there is only a stream of well being”.

You can get into the stream anywhere along the bank.  All you have to do is decide to go with the flow.

Your thoughts and feelings have been so linked to the happenings of the past for so long they have become a ball and chain around your leg.

Stop holding yourself back from experiencing yourself as the powerful creator that you really are.  You have only to decide.

Deciding to be happy right now, to enjoy abundance, love, joy and prosperity is a simple process.  You just decide.

Right where you are right now is the result of what you have been thinking and feeling for a while.  Start thinking and feeling something different and you will be amazed at how quickly your life begins to change.

Don’t wait until things line up the way you want them.  That’s backwards.  You have to change yourself.  Change your outlook.  Change your beliefs in yourself.  Change your expectations of what life brings you.

There is only abundance.  Abundance of everything.  The question is what are you experiencing abundance of?

There is abundance of joy, sadness, love, hatred, good feelings and bad feelings, money and poverty, well being and disease.

What are you thinking and feeling into your experience?

Change your life outside of you by changing the inside of you.

Make new choices, decide to be happy.

Decide to BE who you really ARE.

 

What Are You Owning? Disease, Poverty, Abuse?

Awakening...!!!

There are plenty of people who have gone to the doctor and been told that they “have” a certain disease or ailment.  Soon after most get sicker and sicker.  Trips to the doctor increase.  More medicine is taken, still the disease progresses.

There is another, smaller group of people who upon hearing from the doctor that they “have” a certain ailment refuse to “own” it.  They just will not take it as fact that it’s a given they will continue to degrade health wise.

These people begin seeing themselves as whole, perfect, healthy.  They improve, some even heal completely.

What is the difference between these two groups of people?  How can you apply this to your life?

Owning something means you accept it as yours, belonging to you, a part of you.

When you say these are my children, this is my job, home, car, spouse; you are connecting yourself in a very real manner with the energy of these things.

The same is true for dis-ease, poverty, abuse and all other experiences that are not pleasant to you.

You get to determine whether anything is yours or not.  You can connect with it and let it become a part of your life experience or simply make a choice for something different.

 

It’s a simple thing to determine what you are owning by listening to what you say after I Am. 

How many times during the day do you say I AM _______________.  Fill in the blank and be amazed at the hundreds, maybe thousands of times you declare your connection, your state of Being.

I am poor, sad, angry, fat, ugly, stupid, unloved, sick, are just a few of the ones I hear most often.

Clients will tell me that I don’t understand, they are sick, alone, broke.  Yes, I do understand.  I understand that as long as you continue to declare yourself to BE anything, you will continue to experience Being that very state.

Decide today what state you will declare yourself to Be.  If it’s not what you want, then shift it with a different statement.  Own only what you wish to experience.

Affirmations for today

I Am happy and loved.
