Be your best, happy friend. That may sound a bit funny to you, but it holds some great advice. We all know that deep, quiet satisfaction is the very stuff we are made of.
Peaceful happiness is available to us at all times. There is never a moment that it is not available. Everything you need is in the quiet of you.
One of the tools for locating the happiness within is to listen to the sound of each breath, become aware of your heartbeat. What a loyal friend is your heart! Consider your age. How many years has your heart been beating? It is estimated that over an average of a 66-year-lifespan the heart beats 2.5 billion times.
The heart beats and your lungs exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen to nourish your blood supply whether or not you think about it. These systems are available to you free-of-charge throughout your lifetime. So is peace, joy and happiness. Happiness is always available to you, free-of-charge. There is no external thing, like a new house, a new job, new clothes, a new friend or loved-one, that can bring you happiness because you already own an unlimited supply of happiness. It is the fabric of who you are. You are the energy of happiness!
You can restrict your flow of happiness with negative thoughts just like you can cover your airways to prevent oxygen to enter your body. If you cannot experience happiness simple remove the clamps of negative thinking. Pay attention to each breath and realize there is more to you than you ever imagined. Take a moment to still all thoughts and reach inward to your best friend, you.
Let go of the negative concerns, strategies, pseudo-defences that restrict your happiness. Let go, become aware of your breathing until you can sense the happy energy that wishes to bubble up into your day’s reality. Ask yourself often today, “How do you feel?” . As you practice each day, you will become aware of the negative impediments you have placed on your well-being. Little by little, remove these restrictions and get to “Happy” in “Real Time.”
This audio/video book sample calms me down even though I produced it. As I listen I experience the peace that is within all of us. I hope you will share it with your friends and neighbors, especially those who are a little down at the moment.
The audio sample reading is taken from “Aunt Barbara’s Powerful Little Book of Comfort. I hope it will soothe the pain many may feel on this day. Hopefully it will guide anyone who has lost their sense of happiness back to peace. It is a 20-minute reading hosted on YouTube.com.
Even though I am one of those people who enjoy the journey more than the arrival, I do find great satisfaction in completing a book project begun in October.
In October I began writing about positive solutions to help others heal from very difficult situations. As in most efforts to help others, I benefited. I moved towards consistently choosing positive solutions over complaining or worrying. As a practice administrator, this can be an ongoing challenge. Yet each day, I see evidence of greater opportunities to find the joy that exists within me at all times. I look forward to enjoying this adventure and I eagerly embrace the wonderful adventures that lie ahead. I hope to embrace them all!
If you are interested or know someone who would benefit from reading this little book, it is available here.
As you’ve probably heard before, you can do anything you put your mind to. It is true!
When I began my newest project in writing I was eager to get to completion. I created Aunt Barbara’s Powerful Little Book of Comfort for my niece who had experienced the hardest of life’s realities, that of the death of her mother.
As the writing took place, I realized that I would need to commit to the directives of positive thinking found within the book. I practiced the exercises to see if they indeed could turn around negative, painful thinking. The results were amazing.
Not only was I happier, my situation improved. My life became fuller. I was able to accomplish more. More people came into my life who delighted me. Parking places opened up for me. Solutions to daily challenges became clearly apparent.
Living in the dark is a choice. The way to turn on the light in any dark situation is to think a positive thought. My workbook will give you ideas that will help you keep the lights on!
Aunt Barbara’s Powerful Little Book of Comfort is available in print and ePub. For those who read this book, it would be most helpful for me to hear your reviews. Has this book helped you? How have you taken it to another level? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
The electricity went out yesterday, late afternoon, on our island with noisy gusts of wind. It was a lovely evening of conversations.
Now, I am happy to announce that “Aunt Barbara’s Powerful Little Book of Comfort” is available on smashwords.com and soon to be available on iTunes, Barnes and Noble, Sony and more eBook outlets. This book was inspired by the experience of losing my loving sister-in-law earlier this year. Her sudden death left us all deeply shaken.
Devastation can come to those who have experienced a sudden detachment from the people, places and things so interwoven with their personal identity that it is hard to distinguish self from the lost person, place or thing. This book is written for those who have lost a loved one in death, in divorce or separation; those who have left home to go off to college or left their family and moved to a new location far away; those who have lost their homes, companies or jobs.
