Read on if you want to know the easiest way to create incredible happiness in your life.
First things first; The Waking Up Ritual
We all know how important it is to have a good nights sleep. Sleep rests and rejuvenates our body and mind and allows us to recharge our energy. When you sleep you sort of go back to a base level of power – energetically speaking.
When you wake up, you will naturally be in a state of peace. It takes no effort to do this, it just is. Thank you universe! You are awesome!
That’s why it is so important to tap into this window of time – just 17 seconds is all it takes – of wonderful feeling, and hold onto it for as long as possible before your mind kicks into gear and starts running off all the stuff you have to that day.
Since most of us tend to ‘go with the flow’ when we wake up, we can easily lose this wonderful opportunity to tap into our power and set ourselves up for greatness, right at the beginning of our day.
Staying With a Sense of Well-being
So let’s prepare!
Right after waking up and before anything challenges your sense of well-being, lay in your bed and appreciate the warmth and the soft sheets. If you can hold these wonderful thoughts and feel for just 17 seconds, you will create a momentum that will encourage even more wonderful feelings and thoughts.
Think about that! That is totally doable right.
If you’re a really busy person in the morning, set your alarm 10 minutes earlier, so you can give yourself that time and space to rest a little longer in your bed.
MAKE this happen consciously because it won’t occur on its own. The longer you linger in these good feelings the more positive impact it will have on the rest of your day.
Starting your day
Now it may not take long before your wonderful fuzzy happy feeling disappears with kids to feed, or jobs to do and go to, but don’t be discouraged, keep working at it. Find the things that derail your good feelings and try to reorganise your routine if you can.
I use to switch on the news first thing in the morning after my shower, but it totally brought me off my good feelings, so I stopped doing that! Now my good feeling lasts much longer throughout the day.
Make a Good Feeling Last…
Intentionally try to make this good feeling last as long as possible and when it goes don’t beat yourself up, it happens.
When the time is right and calmer try to find your happy place again, breath deeply somewhere quiet, connect within for 5 minutes during a break, and balance your energy.
The point here is not perfection, but to just get into the habit of reaching for good feeling thoughts and feelings throughout your day, and leveraging those first seconds after you wake up to set you up for success.
You will slowly find it easier to find the frequency of feeling good, every single day. Things will come to you more easily that feel good, you will achieve more clarity and positive focus in your life.
When you care about how you feel, and you are able to sustain it for long moments of time, you will strive for this more and more and even guard it for it is precious. When someone or something takes you away from your good feeling, you notice it big time! and you will work to change that.
The Next challenge
The idea here is not to become a snob, wallowing in your own positive energy and disowning anyone who threatens it. We live in a world that demands our creations and our attention.
People are in your life who need your time, love and energy. However, you can do all this and STILL maintain your positive energy. It will take time and patience though.
The next step in this process is challenging because it calls you to practice maintaining your positive energy, while you are still interacting with all the people you know or have to deal with in your life.
We’ve all been there, you are feeling great, amazing in fact, you bounce into work and someone says something to you that rips into you and you come crashing down.
You feel like you never want to talk to them again. You may even want to punch them in the face or spill their coffee in their lap. Ha!
Yet remember life is really not after you. Life is happening all around you all the time, it isn’t out to get you. It DOES though want you to work through your triggers.
Don’t Become a Hermit
Life is meant to be observed and for you to participate in it. As you participate you come to conclusions about your preferences in life, even by not knowing what you don’t want you inadvertently know what you DO want.
No matter which way you come at the choices in your life, they are all YOUR choices and you are the one navigating the great ship that is YOUR life.
Life is full of variety and lots of contrast so that you can come to important personal conclusions about what you really want in life.
The idea here is NOT to become a hermit. You are destined for greater things than that. We evolve, grow and learn how to be better people by interacting with others.
Get Connected to Your Deeper Self
At times we may need to retreat, refuel, recharge our battery and we always come back better and stronger afterwards. Be aware of cutting people off, staying hidden for months or even years, disconnecting from your life force.
Staying disconnected for too long doesn’t feel good, I don’t care how many lies you tell yourself to convince yourself otherwise. That simply isn’t who you really are.
If you are, however, solid in your energy and you know in your heart that upsets are triggered in you so that you can ‘let go‘ of your shit, then you will evolve and your living experience will be powerful.
Sheltering yourself like a hermit or blaming others for these upsets that they have triggered in you only takes you further away from who you really are and living an empowered life.
In a state of avoidance, you can’t maintain the powerful positive energy and vibration of being the real you. You give up so much by trying to do that. The benefit of alignment should not have to pay the price of being a hermit.
The Daily Challenge
So that is the challenge, to hold that positive energy even when someone pisses you off, pokes you and makes you angry, cuts you off, or steals your high vibe.
If you are truly solid in yourself and your energy, no one can steal anything from you EVER!
You should practice and be in your energy and alignment so solidly that you can go anywhere, be anywhere, with anyone and still maintain it!
Dealing with and working through triggers is a whole other blog and would actually fill a book. You be sure though that if you start your day right, remember just 17 seconds a day is all it takes, this one key step is what will help set you up for SUCCESS for the rest of your day.
