Lately, I have been taken by surprise by an overwhelming feeling of joy that overtakes my body. It didn’t happen because I have just met the love of my life or that I have just won the lottery. At first, I would just observe it and make a judgment like “I must be losing my mind!”, because these moments happen when I’m usually doing something mundane, like the laundry or washing the dishes.
I have realized that as our vibration reaches higher levels, we are given glimpses of another way of being. Joy happens to be our natural state of being. We are spiritual beings of joy.
If you have ever read Louise Hays’ book “Heal Your Body”, you will understand that most dis-ease that our bodies develop comes from a lack of joy in our Being. Not being in joy conflicts and disrupts with our natural state of being.
I was giving a session with a client who was getting ready to move to another city and was having trouble renting out her house. She exclaimed “ I’m tired of having to earn everything in my life”. Basically, she saw everything in her life as a struggle (another good example of “ a belief”). Recognizing this, I said to her, instead of seeing this as a struggle, find the “joy” in where you are going. Find the “joy” in finding the right person to rent your house.
Just this shift in our perspective can change how we view a situation (from bad to good), and the belief that timing is everything, helps us to have trust and not try to force what we want to happen.
Be sensitive to the signs and omens. Ride the wave with zero resistance. Stay in the moment as this lifts you up and gently lets you back down and then back up again. Acquiescence allows what you desire and intention to manifest. Have patience with joy. In Shamanism, the rabbit totem teaches you to know when to sit patiently and to know when to run.
Personally, If I want to create a change in my life, I will allow it no more that three attempts at it. If it doesn’t work, then I change my approach and try it again. We are co-creators, so be creative.
Don’t be afraid to tap into your creative self to come up with a solution.
When I was in my early twenties, I would read the biographies of very successful people. Every time I finished a book, I would try what the person did to become successful. Of course, none of those methods worked for me. What is one person’s path will not be another’s.
A few years later, I started following my intuition and my heart and my life became more successful. I realized that each of these people whose biographies I had read, had also done the same thing – They dared to follow their “gut” and succeeded.
When you follow your heart, how could you not feel joy? You do, because you are in the flow. When you have awareness you have joy. When you are doing what you really want to do, you have joy.
