365 Days of Happiness – April 29, 2017

Make a Spa Day out of your day!

Energize and clean with your breath. Imagine with every breath in you oxygenate, and with every breath out you clean out the old.

Hydrate and energize with the water you drink. Fill a glass of water, look at it, feel it and connect to it.  Now imagine filling it with your love, healing and happiness. Time to drink that positive water!

Clean and rejuvenate with your shower water. Consciously feel the shower water softly pouring over you. Feel how cleaning, refreshing and renewing this is.

Color up! Enjoy all the color therapy around you. Look at all the colors, how do they make you feel? Indulge in it and fill yourself up.

Relax, feel love and beautiful with hugs! Hugs open and activate your heart energy. They make the world in your body go round. They are relaxing and bring out the feeling of “I am beautiful!”

Nourish and replenish with delicious food. Think and feel what foods are fitting. How will these chosen foods make you feel? Prepare them and consciously devour them with joy.

Spark your happiness with smiling. When you lift the corners of your mouth into a smile your mood lifts too.

Awaken and pamper your feet. Walk barefoot and notice the amazing foot massage that is in every bare foot step you take.

And not to forget, be perfumed! Go smell those flowers and plants and feel all scented. Tap lavender all over your body and feel the magic!

Happy Spa Day!

Tomorrow is Sun-Day! Make it count as a happy day!

Start an adventurous pact with your “Now”!

Your “Now” is always and guaranteed an adventure. It is constantly new, updated and filled with opportunities just for you.

In your “Now” you are in charge and get to decide and choose your thoughts, feelings and reactions. And with your choices you create your next “Now”, that is how and where change starts. Not to mention you get to flash your super manifestation power in your “Now”.

Your “Now” is holding its part of the deal. It’s responsibility is to be an adventure. Are you holding your part of the deal? To be present right now?

Practice slowing down and feel, see, smell, taste, hear and act in a state of mindfulness. Do this often and soon enough mindful is not a state anymore, it becomes who you are.

Magic happens in a mindful “Now”!

What would still be there, if you would pour your whole life into a colander? Just like you pour cooked pasta plus cooking water, olive oil and salt into a colander.

What part of your life would be your pasta to keep and to deliciously devour, and what would be your cooking water, olive oil and salt going down the drain?

Using the sifting qualities of a colander and then imagine pouring your whole life into it, will initiate clarity in your life. You might know instantly what is what. If not, you can make a list with two columns, one for pasta and one for down the drain. If you like, you could add on a third column called garbage disposal, for the things in your life you really want to get out of the way.

This exercise brings out what makes you happy and is delicious to live. All other, know that it served you once, just like the pasta water, olive oil and salt served the pasta to cook perfectly, but it is no longer needed. So with gratitude imagine letting it go down the drain and if needed use the garbage disposal.

Now go on and shift into those changes that you are so clear about.

Spring cleaning, or better “draining” at its best!

Make being happy and constantly shifting yourself back to happiness your main focus today!

Happiness comes in different shapes, sizes and ways. Taking a deep healing breath, smelling the scent of a cup of tea, giving or receiving a smile, spinning your body in circles, laughing with others, lighting a candle, enjoying a glass of wine, shopping, planning a trip… This is all happiness!

If it makes you feel good, it is happiness. Or if you can find something that makes you feel good in a situation, it is happiness. For example, if drinking a cup of tea makes you feel good, it is happiness. And if cleaning your house is not your favorite thing to do, but once you are finished you feel good to be in your clean house, it is happiness.

Make being happy a natural and easy state of being. Because if it is hard work it creates resistance and is no fun. The easiest way to do that is to leave the asking of why, how and what out. And rather fully accept, respect, thank and love what is happening for you. And then open yourself wide to receive, see, feel and hear all that happiness that is there for you 24 hours a day.

Happiness is never “not” there, and will never “not” be there! The presence of happiness is guaranteed at all times!

You are here in this beautiful physical experience called life to be happy, joyful and fly high with your feelings. That is your reason!

Say “Mmmmmm…” when you eat or drink something! Really go all out and feel the deliciousness while humming “Mmmmmm…” as long and loud as you wish.

Doing so shifts you immediately into your present moment of eating or drinking. That means you eat consciously. And when you eat while feeling 100% present in the moment, you feel what and how much your body needs.

It will also create a delicious feeling towards what you eat or drink right at that moment. And food that you feel is delicious, is food that nourishes your body in a delicious way.

Not to mention all the smiles you create for you and others when you are so outspoken about your enjoyment of eating and drinking.

When you feel that something is delicious, it shifts you to happiness. And both, deliciousness and happiness vibrate in an elevated frequency. Enjoying food consciously shifts you automatically to that elevated frequency. And that is where all the magic exists.

Make eating and drinking a “Mmmmmm…” celebration!

It is not about what you get done, it is about how you get it done!

If you push through your to-do list, things turn into “I have to!” That shifts you into your robot mode, where you are running on your subconscious. That means your thoughts and reactions go on autopilot and run on your old recordings. These old recordings are not yours, they are the recordings of others (Mom, Dad, family members and others) that you heard when you were little. Most don’t serve you at all.

The trick is to get stuff done while staying in your conscious, which is your now. In your conscious is where you are in charge to create new recordings and make it fit for you right now. And in your conscious you can choose to get things done in a happy, joyful, loving and peaceful way.

How do you do that? You need to take little check-in breaks.

Think about it, even the wash machine takes little breaks and slow-down moments while in the cycle of washing your clothes. It suddenly turns very slow or even stops for a few seconds before spinning like crazy again. That is because in order to get the laundry really clean, it needs to slow down for a minute and soak. Not to mention, it probably would break down if it would spin like crazy for the whole cycle.

Or take the garbage truck, it slows down its work process when the garbage cans are emptied into it. It takes a minute to digest this, to work on what it just received. If it would not take that minute, it would clog up and stop working.

It is the same for you! No matter how strong you are, wash machine or garbage truck like tough… In order to get stuff done in a healthy and happy way, you need to take little breaks and slow-down moments for yourself, so you can make sure to reconnect to your conscious and your heart as you go.

These little slow-down moments can be simple and short. For example, breathe deep a few times, stretch your body, make a dance move, smile at yourself in the mirror, breathe in some essential oils, enjoy a tea or a candy. Or looking and focusing on your hands does the trick too, because your hands are always doing something in the now.

Your check-in moments can also be deep, thoughtful and longer. For example, ask yourself many times a day “Am I happy right now?” If yes, indulge into your happiness and keep going. If no, take it further and ask “What would make me happy right now?” Follow the instructions you get and keep going in your day.

Important is to pull yourself into a slower spin or a complete pause many times a day, so you can adjust yourself back to your conscious, because that is where your power to choose happiness lays.

Claim and fold into your sweet self!

Focus on all the sweetness around you today. Sweetness exists in people’s faces, children smiles, loving interactions, flowers, nature sounds and smells, music, colors and of course foods, desserts and drinks.

Become aware of everything and everyone around you that shifts you to thinking and feeling “sweetness”.

Indulge in sweet tastes with foods and drinks. Really take your time tasting and feeling their sweetness. This will shift you to “sweetness’.

Look at honey, watch it flow and be all sticky with sweetness. Just watching it will shift you to think and feel “sweetness”.

Use sweet words in all conversations today and make sweet compliments. This will shift you to “sweetness”.

Play around and be creative in thinking, tasting, hearing, saying, seeing and feeling “sweetness”.

Once you feel it, stay in this elevated sweet feeling, experience it all the way. And then imagine filling every cell of yourself with it.

With doing so, you connect to and nurture your sweet self! Because experiencing the sweetness of others, means you feel your sweetness in you. The feeling is in you!

Delicious!

Tomorrow is Sun-Day! Make it a sweet Day!

Your garden is not my garden! And my garden is not your garden!

Imagine that in the morning you create your garden for your day. You plant it with your thoughts, your intentions, your wishes, dreams and your to-do list. Put everything you got into your gardening skills and make it a spectacular garden for you to enjoy all day long.

If during your day, you catch yourself far away from your thoughts, intentions, wishes, dreams and your to-do list, know that you are not in your garden anymore. At some point you left your garden and entered someone else’s garden. And that someone else got up that morning and filled their garden with their thoughts, intentions, wishes, dreams and to-do list too.

Sometimes someone else’s garden looks and feels amazing. If so and with their consent, it’s OK to visit their beautiful garden, hang out, sit down, put your feet up and even take a nap there for a while. It is also OK to look around there and find inspirations you can copy into your garden. But there comes a time, when it is right to say “Thank you for having me”, and then return home into your garden. Overstaying creates a disconnect with yourself.

If someone else’s garden does not look or feel good, don’t enter. Stay in your garden and talk to them over your fence. That way your reactions will be true to yourself. If you already entered their garden, acknowledge this and bow out with gratitude for what you learned. Then leave to go back home into your garden. If you must, run back home.

Being in your garden means that you can always garden it to fit you. You can rearrange it, plant new stuff, throw the old out and you can play with your creativity. You are in charge in your garden! And let’s face it, your garden is the only one you can ever garden in anyways.

Create your dream garden every day, indulge in its beauty and inspire others to get gardening too.

One garden at a time!

Everyone knows how healing and “heart-energy” activating hugs are. Hugs are truly magical!

Today I want to take you on a hug adventure. One that will spark your imagination and add very potent feelings to your already healing hugs.

Imagine you get to pick an animal that you always wanted to hug, but normally is not possible. Pick one that would absolutely make your day the most spectacular ever. Today this could be a lion and tomorrow it could be a baby kitty. That is fine, because your pick changes with what you need for your day.

Now imagine your animal in its full glorious beauty right in front of you. Wow! Consciously see, hear and feel its energy. For example, if it’s a lion feel the majestic power, if it’s a baby kitty feel the gentleness and softness. Breathe and feel this deeply! Now slowly move closer, and hug your animal. Notice the healing energy this hug creates. Keep hugging as long as you wish and breathe deeply. Fill every cell of your body with this delicious and potent energy.

Know that with this imaginary hugging adventure, you gave yourself exactly what you needed for your day. For example, if you chose a lion, you needed to be shifted into your majestic power. If you chose a baby kitty, you needed to be shifted into your gentle soft side.

And because you hugged an animal that normally you can’t hug, this counts as an adventure. And that adventure feeling added higher potency and a “wow” spark to your already healing hug.

Imagination at its best!

An apple is an apple! It grows like an apple, looks and behaves like an apple, taste like an apple and it successfully enchants everyone as an apple. The apple is true to “it” being an apple, and that is why it successfully can shine bright and tasty as an apple. That is how nature works.

Think how it would fail its growth, looks, and taste if it would pretend to be a lemon, or compare itself to a lemon. And let’s not even start to discuss how disenchanting the apple pretending to be a lemon would be.

Well, you are nature too…

You can’t shine your light bright and enchant the world while pretending to be someone else or comparing yourself with others.

You might be an apple or you might be a lemon, or you might be something completely different. Either way, you can only shine your light bright when you are true to your unique “who” you are.

You are one of a kind! You are made up of your beautiful physical body, your smart and fun mind, and your glorious spirit. You come with happiness, love, peace, health, positivity and joy. And you come with anger, sadness, fear, jealousy and negativity. That is all you, and it’s all beautiful. Not to mention how boring it would be to miss any part of you.

Practice looking at yourself in the mirror and say to every part of you “I love you!”

Doing so will undo any resistance you have towards any part of you that you believe is not good. And without resistance, all parts of you can melt into one. That “one” is you! Finally able to be loved by you and as you.

Accept, respect, thank and love all of you and be the apple, lemon or other you are a 100%.

Now go shine, and enchant yourself and the world!
