How Can I Be Happy In Three Easy Steps

October 26, 2014

By taking three easy steps each day you can not only find happiness but live a happy life. Begin by writing down what happiness is for you. Until you know what happiness is, it's unlikely you will achieve it. Make a list and include everything. Be sure to include not only the stuff that represents happiness to you but the feeling of happiness. What does it feel like, where do you feel it?

Once you have finished create another list of all your unwanted situations. Make this second list similar to this statement. I do not want to be poor. Write down everything you do not want. Now drop the not in those statements and what you have left is why you are not happy. You are far more passionate about the unwanted situations than you are about the wanted experiences. This is very important. Being honest with this step will lead to a break through. You create with energy. Energy creates in it's own image.

Turn all the unwanted statements into positive affirmations. For example I do not want to be poor becomes. I interact with abundance and plenty. Take each “negative” statement and use it to discover what is wanted and state that as a fact. These are the statements you will repeat throughout the week.

The third step is to always be happy. Only interact in the energy of happy. This requires you to work with your list and see it as done. Go over your happiness statements and put them in present tense. I am enjoying happiness. My body is healthy and strong. I am successful in all my relationships, etc. Staying happy takes practice and the practice creates the new habit of behavior and thinking.

Lack of happiness is the result of thinking, feeling and creating with old ideas. The ideas of lack, low self esteem and poverty recreate themselves with each passionate thought and word. To change this you must define happiness, feel it deep within yourself. Identify yourself with the energy of happiness. Using these three easy steps every day when you wake up and before going to bed at night will set the energy of happiness free in your life. Through practicing living in the energy of happiness you will in a short time, find yourself happy far more often than unhappy. You will be more mindful and change energy more quickly. You can be happy. You do have the power, exercise it.

I love you.. love yourself well..

You Can Stop Struggling Now & Live Happy

October 22, 2014


I'm feeling happy. More than that, I know myself to be totally responsible for my happiness.  See, that's the BIG SECRET!  No more looking out there for what you desire.  It's not there, never has been and will never be found there.  That's why you struggle.  You don't know the truth.  The truth sets you free from struggle.  The truth is YOU CREATE your life through your thoughts, ideas, strong feelings and beliefs.

Take a moment right now to realize where everything in your life came from.  N...

Poverty of Spirit

October 15, 2014


Do you have poverty of spirit?  Let's see.  I was on Twitter earlier today and read a tweet that said something to the effect that without pressure there would be no diamonds.  OK, that's great for diamonds.  I don't want to be a diamond.  I'm not interested in believing myself into one hard struggle after another so I can prove I'm deserving enough to get the life I want to live.  I'm not interested in becoming a gorge worn out by the pressure of water either.

Why do we believe such silly th...

Don't Give Up! It's Just About To Get Better!

October 14, 2014

I know.  Sometimes it just feels like nothing is working. You've read the books, meditated, thought new thoughts, taken new actions and still NOTHING seems any different!  You are tempted to just throw in the towel and pitch a hissie fit. I've been there.  

I was brought out of a deep sleep this morning by my Chihuahua howling in her basket.  I turned on the light, she woke up, looked at me and promptly went back to sleep.  I got up and put the coffee on at 4:30!  I started tuning in to what I...

How to Change Your Thinking to Change Your Life

October 11, 2014
 

What if you really could Master Your Life by mastering your thoughts?  I bet you've heard the saying "change your thoughts change your life", and perhaps given it a try for a few minutes. Like a lot of things that sound easy on the surface they often tend to not play out so easy.

Thoughts habits are like that too.  You've spent your whole life thinking as you do and those thoughts have created in the own image experiences which you have emotionally linked to as self identity.  That's why it'...

Not your average feel good coaching

October 9, 2014


Honestly I'm not interested in helping you feel better in the middle of your sucky life.  I'm not thrilled by helping you suffer through and make the most out of a crappy situation either.  I'm totally hyped by helping you to Remember Who You Are and live as the powerful Spiritual Divine Being you indeed are!

Now if that sounds interesting keep reading. As a teacher, author, healer and spiritual guide for quite a while I've learned a few things.  Most of us are caught up in a system of beliefs...

How to Cure Your Sucky Life How to Be a Happy Creator

October 5, 2014


I love having a bit of fun, actually a whole lot of fun.  What is life without the giggles and expansion of good times enjoyed with friends?  It's sucky.. that's what.  All that struggling that you've been doing for years is old and dissatisfying too. You've just had it.  You KNOW something has got to give, something has got to change.  That's why I did the little graphic. It's time to have a big laugh at how you have thoughts yourself into this unending mess and start again with new thoughts...

Power of Agreement Consciously Creating Life

October 2, 2014


That's a picture I took recently when I used the power of agreement to experience peace and relaxation.  My daughter and I drove to the river and walked for an hour or so.  She and I were in agreement with peace, calm and relaxation so the world lined up just that way.  I even found a blue heron feather reminding me to celebrate my unique expression!

You might wonder what that has to do with your life to which I answer A Whole Lot!   You are using the power of agreement all day long.  You call...

Thoughts Become Things Power of Thought Creation

September 28, 2014


You've heard it before and probably even said it many times, thoughts become things.  Stop for a moment and consider the meaning of that statement.  What are your thoughts? Do they really have the power to become things?  Look around you.  Notice the furniture, walls, homes.  Where did all these things get their start?  Were they not all at first a thought?

Thought is pulling forth from the invisible into the physical and when you hold that thought or idea, belief, tightly, it must become form...

What Does Money Look Like? Living Success

September 23, 2014


See all that money?  How do you feel about that picture?  Perhaps it's what you think you want.  You say you want loads of money.  You want wealth, you want to be rich!
One of the main reasons it's so hard for you is that you are looking at the paper!  Who gets excited over paper?
Who gets excited over a picture of money?  What's really exciting is the experiences the money is exchanged for.

Now that's easier to agree with.  What does the money represent?  Perhaps a home.  What does that home lo...
