How often do you feel totally in love with life? That being alive at this very moment is the most incredible joyful gift there is? Feeling the aliveness and magic of your bodily systems is sheer brilliance? You have the pleasure of residing in this structure of electrical magnetic highways, water and oxygen? Be honest. Probably not often.
Trust me I have been on both sides of the fence. I too have been locked into the daily dramas of child raising, commitments, illness and death. However for a great portion of my life I have lived on the other side of the emotional overwhelm, (overwhelm in this case becomes a noun, a place of being) the space where everyday I simply Love Love being alive, right now, this moment. I’ve thought about the reason why I feel this fortunate, how I found the path to personal nirvana. I’ve been on this path since I was literally quite young, reading, exploring, circumnavigating philosophies and religions and actively working on expansion of ideas, feelings and beliefs ~activating my intuition, my cosmic connections.
We are all in this together. I win you win, you win, I win.
I’m happy to share a few short tools I put into daily habit to assist you on your personal journey of empowerment, expansion and emotional happiness quotient. Literally to be in love with life- no matter the circumstances.
All circumstances are but experiences along the river of life. It’s the emotions we wrap around those experiences that make the differences in the outcome and our perception of it, essentially adding to our emotional well-being or subtracting from it.
An example of that is losing my husband to cancer. I can utilize the experience to become the victim of circumstances or I can embrace our time together as a gift. My choice. I can let all the fear, worry, concern, and heart break float down the river keeping the gifts inside my heart and embrace life, this moment, today.
Each day literally take only 15 minutes for each tool if you’re strapped for time. Okay 5 if you’re really tight but the key is self-time. That’s an hour of daily life dedicated to just you. And trust me you are so worth it. If you have to lock yourself in the bathroom for 15 minutes of personal time to read, create, then do it. Make it so. Trust me you’ll be so much happier every single day.
1. Physical time for you, the health of your body. Yoga, walking, running in place, jumping on a trampoline, hiking, rowing. Doing something for your health and vitality is critical. In time you’ll be able to extend the time but if initially you’re strapped, 15 will do the trick.
2. Emotional connection via friends, family, reaching out, communicating. 15 minutes. We are not islands, we are big continents of connections. Focus on the positives of the links, the love between you. This could be dinner together sharing the day’s activities. It could be reaching out to a cousin you haven’t talked to in ages. It could be sharing your fav comedy with a friend to cheer them up after a long work day. It could also be as simple as watching or reading an uplifting story of love, happiness, connectivity. Initiating the love, extending it outwards to others, even those in line at the grocery store, draws the energy right back and fills your heart. Make it a daily habit.
3. Mental/creative stimulation and expression. I’m not talking work stuff. I’m suggesting things that stimulate and invigorate your inner juices. Learning something new. Diving into mental projects that expand the dendrites in your brain. The mental activity can extend into creativity as they go hand in hand. It’s taking the time for you at least 15 minutes daily that makes the difference. An example would be taking 15 minutes before work or after dinner or before bed to read something that brings excitement and animation into your being. Organizing tools and things for creative projects from cooking to herb gardens to putting together engines is a step towards formation of dreams and ideas. Taking the time is the vital step.
4. Your connection with the cosmic, the inner being of your awareness is also an important aspect. Taking time for your internal expansion is a highly ignored component on happiness and being in love with life. This is your opportunity to shift, change, pivot, alter directions and choose your best pathways. Going into your inner awareness connects you with the magic of the universe and creates insightful links from the best within you. If you take 15 minutes to sit with yourself, listen to your best guidance, take a walk and listen/see/feel with your heart as often as you can squeeze in, solidifies the final foundational cornerstone. This is what will lead you to being in complete alignment with your higher ideals.
Most are not in alignment with their higher and best selves. Most operate out of past programming, a need to be safe by operating from old behaviors, and don’t take time to check-in with their hearts. Most feel resistance in their lives. This is being out of alignment. Many just go through the motions of killing time, filling their days from the premise of half empty rather than from a fat full perspective. This is being out of alignment.* Learning to be in a alignment with your best self is life altering and opens the door to being in the now. Loving life every moment.
In truth physical Life is short. What you choose to do with your time is up to you.When you’re happy that energy is shared. Those around you become happier and reach for that feeling within themselves.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
