HOW DO YOU CREATE A HAPPY LIFE?

by Morgine Jurdan

 

Guest blogger, Morgine Jurdan, is enthusiastic about life and learning and creating joy!  Here she shares all of that plus a few powerful insights on how to have more happiness in your own life.

Would you like to wake up in the morning totally refreshed from a great night’s sleep, happy and excited, filled with enthusiasm and wonder at what magical things might happen today?  There is a smile on your face, a lightness to your step, you are filled with self confidence and trust.  You are glowing, on fire from the inside out, in love with life!

For most of us there is little to support this new journey of reality creation.  Media of all kinds inspires anger, depression, frustration, overwhelm in attempt to sell you their products, which they hypnotize you into believing will somehow bring you happiness and resolve your pain!   Many people define their lives by the “news” which they assume is giving an accurate description of world conditions.  Yet nothing could be further from the truth if you know “the truth” about “which world” you are creating inside, with your own thoughts, and living in every single moment of  your day!! 

Take a few minutes to remember one of those magical moments, when you felt so connected to everything.   Perhaps you were standing on top of a mountain, or inhaling the fragrance of flowers and absorbed in the glorious symphony of a waterfall and birds singing.   Maybe you were gazing at God through the newborn eyes of a baby or sitting under your favorite tree.   It might have been a moment in a workshop, a lover’s first kiss, or in a meditation.   It is in that state of being you were meant to live more often!

Most enlightened teachers today remind us “happiness is our natural state of being”.  When we live from inside our Unlimited Self, there are no problems to fix, only Gifts filled with treasures waiting for us to discover and use.   It is up to each one of us to remember and live in this state of being all the time.   Now I have discovered a way to do this!   

Oprah once said, “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” 

Young children know how to celebrate life, as do animals, insects, Nature itself!   We are surrounded with these kinds of role models if we begin to look around.  

The Aborigines celebrate the rising of the sun everyday as a rare and wonderful gift!  You can begin this practice as well, today!   Each day, you take new steps, hundreds of them.  You choose to get up, eat breakfast, meditate, ask for guidance and take action, drive to work, stop and listen to your children, take the dog for a walk.  Unlike people with no arms or legs, limited vision or hearing, you have so much to celebrate!

Sometimes you are on automatic pilot and you don’t even stop to think.  Before you know it, the day is over, and you are often exhausted and feeling as if you got little accomplished when you go to bed.  Your life is filled with stress and often sadness or feelings of overwhelm.

Celebration transforms your life from ordinary to extraordinary with little effort on your part!   Remember how a simple compliment from someone else can lift your spirits during the day?   Someone says “Thank you!” and  your vibrations rise, you feel a little lighter and your next task becomes a easier.  You can provide yourself the same energy boost and by the end of the day, you will feel a lot more energized and looking for new ways to celebrate yourself tomorrow!  

Begin and take a moment today to honor yourself for all the things you do!  Stop for a few seconds, smile, clap your hands and give a little cheer, or give yourself a hug, arms across your chest.  Stand up and walk around the room with a smile on your face and then sit down again, marking the moment, listen to a favorite song.  You might go to lunch with friends, or plan to take a special bath before bed!  It is these simple magical moments of recognition that can fuel your day!  Yet, we seldom take even a moment to Breathe in Gratitude for all we accomplish every day, and for the amazing person we truly are!!

You can begin by congratulating yourself for getting up in the morning.  There are people who choose to stay in bed, remain stuck, or not move forward in their life.

Smile at yourself when you are getting ready for you day!  Appreciate it took some effort to do that!  

Celebrate making some necessary phone calls you have been putting off. Good job!  Hurray!

Find a way to celebrate You in a way that resonates with you in a positive way.  Treat yourself to lunch, take a five-minute walk, or just sit for five minutes and do nothing at all!   

How about a little smile for stopping to really listen to your children,  planting those flowers in the yard, helping someone carry boxes, or getting your car washed.  There are dozens of opportunities throughout the day!  

Then finally the magic begins to expand outwards.  You develop an inner glow!  People can benefit just by being in your presence.  Then you begin to look for opportunities to compliment others around you.  It becomes an endless circle of Celebration!  Your life becomes a Celebration!

Celebration Process  

1.  Make a list of very simple things you could enjoy doing to Celebrate You:  taking a walk, reading a chapter in a book, calling a friend, walking around the room .. keep adding to it.  

2.  Make a list of things to Celebrate Yourself for:  getting up, fixing and eating breakfast, preparing the children for school, driving to work, getting several things accomplished on your job, grocery shopping, meeting a friend, seeing how long you can make it!  

3.  Create a CELEBRATION Box, Envelope, Poster:  Buy or decorate a box, be creative:   Use a cork board and involve the entire family and make it a game!   Draw or write the celebrations you remember and put them in the box.  Draw or write your current celebrations.  Put mementos that remind you of celebrations.  Gather ideas on the internet to plan future celebrations:

Divine Perfection

ALL IS PERFECT, RIGHT NOW

 

A few days ago I began having daily conversations with my I AM Presence.  Each conversation is guided by 6 questions designed to ask for guidance, support, and specific instructions.   My goal is to increase my alignment with my Divine Self and my Divine Path for this lifetime.

Today’s guidance is about Perfection.  One way to move us out of Judgment and into Non-Judgment is for us to recognize that ALL is PERFECT right NOW in THIS MOMENT. 

I’ve been rushing around since I began Coco Fossland’s Wealth Manifestation Program in early January.  I have so much inspiration and so many ideas and so much to do, in addition to all the other daily things we feel we need to do each day (eat, sleep, that kind of stuff), that I’ve been feeling a mix of anxiety and excitement and enthusiasm and overwhelm.

Here’s what I was told today about how I am feeling, and about what I am thinking about how I am feeling: 

“You are doing very well in meeting with me and listening, too, and then following through.  You are still challenged by other things that draw you away from my guidance.  The more aligned you are [with me], the easier it will be to stay aligned and to follow your path.

“PATIENCE – and – TRUST.  They really go together.  All things happen in RIGHT TIMING.  Time in 3-D is an illusion, as you are already aware. 

“So don’t let time ‘get’ to you.  Be open to FLOW with the natural Tao of things. [See the blog on “Learning Fearlessness from Lao Tsu.”]

“Inspiration leads to Change.  You are changing.  The whole planet and all of humanity are changing.  But you are a ‘way shower,’ so you change first and faster.

“Surrender your illusion that it’s happening ‘too fast.’  It’s happening at a PERFECT SPEED! 

“What is essential WILL be attended to.  What is not ESSENTIAL will fall away. 

“Let go of your illusion of  ‘running really fast just to stand still’ [allusion to Alice Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll,  where Alice and the White Queen run madly and end up in exactly the same place]. 

“There is no requirement of this. 

“FLOW!”

Then I was reminded of a Sanskrit prayer that I dearly love.  It is about perfection.

Om purnamadah purnamidam
Purnat purnamudacyate
Purnasya purnamadaya
Purnamevavasisyate

Om shanti, shanti, shanti

Om.  That is perfect.  This is perfect.
From the perfect comes the perfect.
If the perfect is taken from the perfect
the perfect remains.

Om.  Peace.  Peace.  Peace.

The power of this prayer is that God is perfect and cannot create anything that is imperfect. 

When we feel a loss or that something is “wrong”, we are caught in illusion.  We are forgetting GOD’S PERFECTION. 

And WE ARE PART OF THAT PERFECTION.  We cannot be separate from it, because even when you take the perfect from the perfect, only perfection remains.

“Only perfection remains” refers both to the “original” perfect and to the perfect you imagine you have taken from the “original” perfect.

Therefore, bring your mind to stillness in the knowing that ALL IS PEFECT IN THIS AND EVERY MOMENT.   ALLOW PEACE by vibrating with the the thought of peace.

The glory of the Sanskrit language is that each syllable was discovered vibrating within our own chakras, heard coming from them by the great masters in the caves in the Himalaya Mountains.  These syllables actually vibrate at the same frequency as their meaning. 

Therefore, when you speak the word “shanti” which means “peace,” you are sending out the vibration of peace from your throat and your throat chakra.  You are literally putting the energy of “peace” into the world.  If your Heart Center is also feeling peace, you are magnifying the vibration because you are adding other Divine elements to it.

Isn’t it wonderful?  It’s Divinely Perfect.

The Heart Chakra

Filed under Age of Ascension, Heart Centered Living

The heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest.  It is the center of Divine Love in our 4-body system (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels, as they are called.)  The Heart Center is our place of healing.  WIthin it dwells our highest aspect that came into our physical form at the moment of birth.  This aspect has been called many things in different cultures, but I will call it the Divine Spark.

The transformative energy center.

The Divine Spark resides inside a multidimensional MERKABA within the Heart Center.  When seen with the inner eye, the Divine Spark is a pure flame of white light.  It is our individual soul extension and is continuously connected to higher aspects of our Self that live outside the physical form. 

When drawn two-dimensionally, the Divine Spark is shown to exist within a 6-pointed star.  While some call this the Star of David, it is actually a two-dimensional representation of a MERKABA VEHICLE.  (There is also a MERKABA surrounding our auric fields, but that is another discussion.) 

The merkaba or star-tetrahedron.

The merkaba or star-tetrahedron.

The MERKABA is a sacred geometric form that begins to spin when we reach a certain point in our awakening process.  When it is spinning, is increases our personal power in many ways.

There are many other powerful tools of transformation in the heart.  These may be called the Heart emotions, but they vibrate at much higher frequencies than the emotions of the first 3 chakras.  The tools of the heart include:  Love without conditions, Hope, Compassion, Empathy, Forgiveness, Non-Judgment, Generosity, Joy, Peace, Gratitude, Enthusiasm, Detachment, and Communion with Oneness. 

In the Hindu tradition, the Heart Center is drawn with 12 petals of a lotus flower.  Each petal represents a smaller vortex spinning inside the larger vortex of the chakra. 

According to the ancient yogis, when the kundalini, (the divine energy which rests at the base of the spine until we receive spiritual awakening) rises to the heart chakra, we are able to transform our lower vibrational energies into higher frequencies.  The direct result of this transformation is to free ourselves from limitating emotions, limiting beliefs, and limiting thought patterns.  We become expansive, filled with creativity, love, light, and joy.

The Ascension process taking place on the Earth today is, in fact, awakening humanity by literally causing all of our cells, our DNA, and our 4-body system even to the atomic level, to vibrate faster.  This causes denser, lower frequency patterns to be brought to the surface of our awareness.  Things in our lives that made us uncomfortable can no longer be ignored because they are “in our faces.”  We may experience all kinds of symptoms at all levels, and Western medicine is not able to help us.  If we resist looking at and working through the patterns that are now intesified by the energies, we cause ourselves more pain and some even are choosing to leave the Earth plane rather than do the work to transform these energies.

The place to work consciously on whatever is arising for you is in the Heart Center.  There is not only the Divine Toolbox there, but also the Divine Self, who is ready to love, support, and encourage you, as well as to directly provide healing for this process.

Go into your Heart Center today and ask for assistance.  You will never be denied.
