I can adjust the beat of my drum.
You cannot continue to beat the drum of things that don’t feel good when you beat them—without filling your future experience full of things that don’t feel good. At some point, there’s going to be a tipping point that’s going to become a manifestation. ~ Abraham
There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
Why The Emotional Guide Of Happiness?
Perhaps you do not equate the feeling of happiness with empowerment, but being happy is a sign that you are in your power. Being happy indicates that the thoughts of the Voice in your head are in clear alignment with the vibrations of your Inner Being and Source Energy. Your power is vectorized. You are emanating high, fast, light and clear vibrations and attracting the same. So, you are attracting experiences that you want, that feel good.
The reason you want anything is to feel good. So, the idea is to go for being happy no matter the circumstances and all else will follow. Actually, the happiness path to empowerment is more of a Feel any Good Feeling path since clear alignment comes if you feel any of the range of “feel good emotions” that indicate clear alignment between your physical and nonphysical perspectives. Any of the following emotions indicate clear alignment: optimism, confidence, trust, belief, eagerness, enthusiasm, serenity, passion, bliss, knowing, freedom, appreciation and ecstasy.
We will interchange the labels happiness and joy to indicate a high, fast, and light vibration that feels good.
Robert Holden, Ph.D., the director of the Happiness Project and Success Intelligence, teaches “The Happiness Formula” to millions of television viewers and through his books, Happiness NOW! and Success Intelligence. He encourages us to use the power of happiness to bless your life, let your relationships flourish, and help you be a truly loving presence in the world. Happiness, he says increases your natural capacity for prosperity and success, so teach yourself how to enjoy more happiness. He likens happiness to a spiritual path because the more you learn about true happiness, the more you discover the truth of who you are, what is sacred, and what your life is really for. The challenge is to be happy and release the power of happiness in you.
Freedom is our basis . . .
Our physical perspective is free to use the thoughts of its Voice to choose harmony or disharmony with its Inner Being and nonphysical Soul or Source Energy.
Growth happens . . .
Because we are continually emanating thought vibrations that are incorporated by our Source Energy, thus expanding or growing who we are.
Happiness is our purpose . . .
If we want our two perspectives to resonate with each other; to be the fullness of who we are; to be in clear alignment with Source – so that the power that creates universes has our backs.
The basis of your life is absolute freedom, the goal is joy, and the result of that perfect combination is motion forward, or growth. Your goal is to find objects of attention that let your cork rise.
Harvard Students in the Know
Harvard students must have caught on to happiness being our purpose and the underlying cause of success, since the most popular class there is Psychology 1504 which is referred to as the “Happiness Class”. Shawn Achor, author of four books including the new one, Before Happiness, teaches the Harvard students the five steps to achieving success, spreading happiness and sustaining positive change. These five steps are not simple tricks, but the building blocks of how people can change. The class is based on the principles of positive psychology, the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive.
You were born to be happy. Happiness is natural. It suits you completely. You look good and you feel good when you let happiness ooze from within you. Your step is light, your mind is free, and your spirit soars when you let happiness happen.
Alignment GPS – Emotional Guides
A most important concept in the Attraction Based Consciousness construct is that happiness, like all emotions, is absolutely an inside job. Our emotions are a guidance system, our Alignment GPS. They indicate the degree of vibrational alignment between the focus of our thoughts of the Voice in our heads and our Inner Being and Soul.
We suggest the “Follow your Joy” meditation that Dr. Holden uses in the Happiness Course.
Appreciating What Is – Step by Step
If an unwanted thought or experience has momentum and keeps occurring, this process of gradually shifting your perspective thought by thought (step by step) can be effective. This process is about shifting your thoughts and feelings even though the condition remains the same.
Draw a staircase starting from the bottom left of the paper going to the top right. On the top step write the way you want to feel. Make it a statement – I feel appreciative that, I feel comfortable that . . . whatever you wish to feel, but do not now. Though this is not how you feel right now, gradually you can shift your perspective.
On the second step write an example of something where you do feel the desired feeling – or at least close to it. Start by making very general statements that may or may not even be on the topic but do conjure the feeling you desire.
Continue making these feeling statements on each next step up the staircase. It may be possible to make more specific statements as the feeling gains momentum. It may be possible to make statements specific and, on the topic, and still stay in clear alignment if you have gained enough momentum.
