Everyone is looking for happiness.
Aristotle said: "Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence."
But, truthfully, how happy are YOU?
Do you still feel as though you're SEEKING something else? As though you aren't QUITE in the right place?
The potential for true happiness and freedom exists within you *right now.*
But most people don't see it. Instead, they focus on the problematic grey clouds. They never realize the beautiful blue sky that always exists just behind them.
Let go of fears. Enjoy higher self-esteem. Embrace fantastic relationships. Uncover the real you. And much, much more - all when you ask yourself this simple question.
What am I really looking for in life?
Once you look deeper, beyond your desire for a bigger house or a fancier car, you will most likely discover that what you’re truly searching for is not more “stuff,” but more Happiness… more Joy.
It may seem some people are born with enjoyment for life programmed into their hardwiring, whereas for others finding Happiness seems an elusive goal. But, like any programming, yours can be changed.
Here are just a few of my Simple Secrets that can help you rewrite your life program into one that is filled with Joy.
Experiment To Find Out What Makes You Happy
If you haven’t taken the time to explore what brings joy to your Life on a regular basis, you may realize you don’t even know what brings you happiness anymore. If that’s the case, try out different things, including some you’ve never done before. The answers just might surprise you.
Focus On Gratitude
Incorporate a daily gratitude session where you identify something you are grateful for. You can express your gratitude in any number of ways: silently say “Thank you,” call or email the person you want to thank, or devise your own gratitude ritual . And…don’t forget to thank yourself…yes, YOU…for yet another day with YOU!
Take Time To Savor Life
Resolve to cut down on rushing from one thing to the next – delegate or say, “no” – to reduce your number of appointments and daily tasks.
Stop Watching And Reading Depressing News
In the beginning you may worry that you’ll miss something, but think about it – when was the last time you truly needed to know the things covered in the daily news. Being selective about the information you expose yourself to can have an incredible impact on your level of personal happiness.
When you’re in the middle of a mess, look around you and realize the absurdity of the moment. Remind yourself that a year from now, no one will care, and you’ll probably be laughing about it anyway, so why wait? Laugh about it now!
Happiness is important for so many reasons, beyond the obvious fact that most people would prefer to be Happy rather than not. There is little doubt about the powerful effects positive emotions can have on your physical health and well-being. At the same time, there is equally little doubt about the effects that negative emotions can have on you. Why not choose positivity?
Happiness will not only protect your body from stressors that can lead to dis-ease, but it can even boost your immune system's ability to fight off the common cold.
But, I’ve realized that for many, “Happiness” is far too nebulous a term. Do you struggle to define an activity that truly makes you Happy? If so, I want to share with you a new definition that nearly everyone can easily grasp and apply:
“Happiness” is whatever gets you Excited.
It is what makes you jump out of bed in the morning with eager anticipation to start your day. Once you identify that activity, whatever it is, you can start to focus on it, and structure your life to do more of that.
If you can become happier - and you can if you choose to - you will build and live a better Life, not to mention you will help build a better world. If you can improve your ability to address stresses and negative emotions, you're more likely to be able to do the things that no one would claim are trivial. For me, this is clear, and most of the time, easy. My mission is to assist others in developing strategies to help them help themselves to live an empowered and joy-filled life. I truly love what I do, and that is why "working" long hours every week continues to be a source of happiness in my life.
And, speaking of work, and hence money, especially, in what we perceive as somewhat unsettling economic times, it true that money can’t bring you Happiness?
I believe that to say that wealth can NEVER bring you Happiness is much too simple a statement because there are a number of factors involved. Financial wealth, when achieved through providing appropriate value to those who surround you - to your culture, to the planet - can provide enormous joy and satisfaction.
But, essentially, it’s not the money in and of itself that brings either happiness or unhappiness, but rather it’s HOW your wealth is obtained that is the crux of the equation.
I believe that financial wealth is a side effect of the journey to pursue happiness. It is the process itself that provides the joy and happiness. So, if you “cheat”, or take a shortcut, you will probably not achieve the happiness you seek.
Building positive emotions through humor is one of the most natural things you can do to bring joy to your work, and broaden your view of this wonderful world in which we live. So, when things go wrong, why not indulge in the instant gratification of laughing now, rather than later?
In my opinion, happiness isn't so much something you strive for, but rather a spontaneous natural result of pursuing your mission, purpose and passion in life. I invite you to travel the journey you have so graciously been placed on!

Speak Up, The World Is llistening!
The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same. -Carlos Castaneda
Have you ever noticed how good thoughts lead to more good thoughts, and negative thoughts lead to more negativity? Pay attention to which path you’re on, and take this advice to a positive future!
Especially, in these economic and otherwise unsettling times…Especially, as not only the earth shifts, but as we are made aware of what must shift within each of us…And, as the tsunami stirs not only above ground, but within the hearts and bellies of each of us…I invite YOU to:
Raise your Vibration!
The higher your vibration, the more likely you are to experience positive synchronicities and ride the loving current of universal flow, receiving magical blessings as you go! How do you raise your vibration? There are numerous ways to do so on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
Love is the highest vibration in the universe; hence Love for yourself, others and your world will ALWAYS raise your vibration. And gratitude can help open your heart to more of that Love!
Essentially, the happier and more Love-filled you are, the more aligned you are with your true nature and Source, and the more open a receptor you are to synchronicities and Blessings, and receiving in general. That’s the key…and then some!
One powerful way to raise your vibration is to work energetically to anchor in high pure universal energies of Love and Light, which can occur through meditation, being out in nature, listening to uplifting music, and being in the company of people who exude positive energy, Gratitude, and Joy!
Believe in positive synchronicities, and keep your eye out for them!
Understanding the illusory nature of Reality; that everything is energy, can open you more to everyday magic. You are a Spiritual being having a physical experience. Reality is not the solid world you believe it to be. Magic and miracles are WAY possible! Energy is malleable. Reality is a trick of the light.
There is love, insights and wonders that want to be gifted to you from higher realms if you open and allow, and start to take of the blindfolds of consensus thinking that can limit the WONDER and MAGIC of each moment!
Know you are loved totally and unconditionally
by the Source of creation, whatever name you hold for that. Know that this Loving infinitely intelligent Source wants the very best for you in every moment! You are the only one that can stand in your way, and the limiting beliefs, thoughts and feelings you hold that can block the Love and Success you desire and deserve.
You are Loved more than you will ever know!
And you deserve it, whether you believe it or not, so BELIEVE IT! Know that you worthy of all good things, and open to receive!
Start practicing the clearing of the main core limiting Self-beliefs that we hold and begin Living the life that you truly Desire, rather than living a life of default, and just plain settling for less.
Ask for what you want. Write out a wish list. Affirm your intentions. Say your desires out loud or silently in your mind before sleep and/or on waking. In whatever way you like, affirm your desires to yourself and the universe.
When you set goals and specify desired outcomes, and visualize these, stepping into the shoes of that future you, you set the ball in motion and the universe will start arranging things for your benefit! Really!!!
You create your Reality – do your bit with the Power of your heart and mind by visualizing your dreams regularly, clearing limiting beliefs that stand in the way, and feeling the outcomes richly and tangibly ahead of time to call them into existence in the present.
What you are feeling creates your thoughts…which serves to create your external world! If you ever want to know what you are thinking…just take a look at that which surrounds you…what shows up in your world!
Fun throws off the shackles of denser energy and negative states, elevating you to higher happy realms where flow and synchronicities abound! Fun attracts positivity like metal to a magnet. It is the antidote to stress, struggle, tediousness and seriousness. When you are having fun you are open and sharing of who you are and ride on the current of spontaneity and joy. What brings you fun, happiness and joy? Commit to more of it in all areas of your life.
Start awakening to and decoding the ‘magical messages ' present in your everyday life
Just as night dreams are rich in symbolic meaning, so is your waking Reality!
It is essentially an illusion, a sea of vibrating energy that appears very solid, but is not at all!
When you understand the nature of Reality at a deeper level, you realize it can be a vehicle through which you can receive insights, nudges and opportunities…not to mention…but, I will…The Life You Desire!
Awakening to this can be magical, illuminating, and transformational, especially when you become more adept at decoding these messages!
Become a detective of your outer Reality! Unveil and unravel its secrets!
I LOVE listening to the ‘whispers' and decoding the hidden meanings and messages inherent in the situations, people and circumstances I attract. Even the title of a book someone's reading next to you on a plane, email subject lines, overheard snippets of conversation, a song that comes on the radio, advertising headlines, a flyer that crosses your path etc., can all hold relevance.
Life is not just some random set of experiences separate from you.
As quantum physics now proves, you and your world are inextricably linked!
Understanding the communications in your world is not only fascinating and illuminating, but for me has been totally LIFE-CHANGING!
The insights and messages I've received with an intuitive path have led to the manifestation of success, abundance, and living the life of my dreams.
I have had countless magic moments and wondrous synchronicities and opportunities by opening my eyes and mind to the metaphoric nature of reality and the gifts and guidance there-in, which I explore fully at all times! I say, “Yes”…and follow my thought!
Decoding reality is what makes life so magical to me, and an exciting journey of investigation and discovery!
Engaging this new dimension of guidance will enable you to take that which you want in Life to the next level and, likely, CATAPULT you into the Life you Desire, because it will help guide you rapidly to what's in your highest and brightest future… and dreams-come-true!
Ask Yourself…Are you ready to Celebrate Life?!
