Gratitude is more than just saying thank you. It is truly being and feeling grateful for all that you are, all that you are becoming, and all that you have. We tend to take things and people for granted when at anytime we could lose them.
When you practice gratitude on a daily basis it not only keeps you in tune with your Inner Life, but it takes the focus off of the negative aspects of your life. Feeling gratitude creates positive energy that flows out into the Universe bringing you more things to be grateful for. Feeling and being grateful for even the smallest of things will yield great benefits. The more gratitude you feel the more resistance you will dissolve within yourself. You will no longer be going against the natural flow of life but floating happily along with it.
If you find yourself unhappy and surrounded by things you don’t want, find at least one thing to be grateful for and feel it ~ really feel the gratitude for it. It doesn’t matter what it is, just feel grateful in the having of it. Within a matter of minutes, if not seconds, you will feel a shift in your energy and your mind will automatically start focusing on other things to be grateful for.
If feeling gratitude seems more like work or does not come easy to you, start a gratitude journal. Every night before bed take a few minutes and write down 3 things you were grateful for during that particular day. It does not matter what it is as long as you can feel the gratitude toward it. When you get up the next morning, start your day off by re-reading those things. This will instill the positive feelings you had about them and start your day off on a grateful foot!
Love & Light,
Being happy is not complicated nor is life, we just choose to complicate it. We complicate it with our past, our future, negative thinking and/or our beliefs. However, when you live through your Inner Life these things cease to exist because they are a figment of your imagination. They are what your mind is thinking, not who you are. You are the present moment and you are true happiness – pure – positive – plain and simple!
True happiness is the internal stable presence of unconditional love, peace, harmony, abundance and well-being. It exists under any and all circumstances. This does not mean you won’t experience negative emotion, because you will. It just means you will be happy even if you do not feel happy.
Think of yourself like that of an electrical circuit. As long as you stay connected to the Source (Inner Life), you will always have power; you will always be “working” correctly. This connection will yield true happiness and give you access to whatever you desire. It is when you rely upon external resources you lose your connection and power in a never-ending cycle of ups and downs. External resources do in fact create the feeling of happiness and are very fulfilling at the time of inception but eventually the euphoria they bring will fizzle out and you will be left wanting bigger, better and more.
Inner Life = Source
Source = True Happiness
True Happiness = Inner Life
Living through your Inner Life allows the constant flow of positive energy. This positive flow of energy journey’s out into the Universe, and as we all know, like attracts like. Your energy will then “attach” itself to the same likeness and immediately bring it back to you whether it be in the form of a positive emotion, a joyous life experience, or a material object.
Simply put, uncomplicate your life and allow happiness by living through your Inner Life first and foremost. Live in the present moment, for YOU are the present moment, and YOU are true and lasting happiness! Leave the rest behind and enjoy what life has to offer you right NOW!
Love & Light,
It goes without saying that if you want true and lasting happiness, start from within. Start with your Inner Life, not your outer life. True and lasting happiness does not come from what is on the outside, it comes from what is on the inside. From the core of who you truly are.
When you start with your Inner Life, making how you feel your #1 priority, life will take a turn and so will you. You will see all the good in the world instead of the bad. You will notice what is working instead of what isn’t. Your life will fill with abundance in ways you never thought possible. Your perception of life and how it is supposed to be will change as well, creating clarity, value and excitement towards what is yet to come.
As you learn and practice your way into true happiness, you will be witness to some of the most magnificent and amazing moments and life experiences you have ever had. Just about everything changes in a manner that brings you peace, well-being, abundance and happiness. All those worries and woes cease to exist, health issues begin to improve, healing replaces pain, energy increases, positive thinking replaces negative thinking, money starts flowing in, and all those desires you have begin to show themselves! But, it doesn’t stop there. Reaching this “level” of happiness will create a shift so great that nothing else will matter except for how you feel.
Being happy and feeling good truly does affect every area of your life. Nothing can change when you approach life with an unhappy and negative state of mind. It is time to stop giving so much attention to your outer life and start giving all your attention to your Inner Life. How you feel mentally, emotionally and physically is an indicator of where you are. When you feel good, you are living in and through your Inner Life. And when you feel bad, you are living in and through your outer life.
To live from your Inner Life is no different from living in the present moment because you are the present moment. You are here now and that is something that will never change. Give yourself the time you need to allow the happiness you so deserve. Starting with your Inner Life will change you and your life forever!
Love & Light,
