I have a lot to be grateful for... and my thoughts are responsible for that... it's my thoughts that create my perception, actions, reactions and the light I radiate to others. When you think happy thoughts, you're happy... it's that simple. Yes, there are lots of other thoughts out there that you can choose, but the more you pick the happy ones, the more happy ones you'll attract to you. Your whole world shifts and starts to brighten up when you think happy thoughts, and smiling never hurts either.
Here's a simple energy/breathing technique you can try to see for yourself just much how happy thoughts affect you : )
*First sit in a comfortable cross legged position on the floor and take a few deep breaths.
*Now with one hand take your index and middle fingers and place them on your right nostril to close it and then breathe in through your left nostril. Then close your left nostril and breathe out through your right nostril.
*Reverse nostrils and repeat for a few breaths alternating inhaling through the right and left.
*Now take a few more deep breaths and begin rubbing your hands rapidly together to accumulate heat.
*Separate your hands an inch or two apart so you can feel the energy between them.
*Think of something that's bothering you... a fight you had, a bill you have to pay, a task you don't want to do... notice the energy between your hands.
*Now, think happy thoughts... a person you love, a great song, something that makes you smile... and again notice the energy.
(You should feel the energy deplete with the negative thoughts and expanding with the happy thoughts.)
When your thoughts are happy, your vibration increases and the possibilities are endless!!
Today's Silver Lining:
"When there's a smile in your heart, There's no better time to start, Think of all the joy you'll find, When you leave the world behind, And bid your cares goodbye, You can fly, you can fly, you can fly!" from Peter Pan
