Raise your hand if you are outrageously happy, jump out of bed each morning and shout “Hello World!”, perform work that you love, have healthy relationships, abundant health, feel good about money, and live your life from love and not fear? (Is that crickets I hear?). So do you want that joyful life, or do you want to stay as you are? (Cue the standing ovation!)
Do these 5 über easy steps everyday and you will easily shift to a juicy joyful path.
1. Large order of gratitude with orange juice, please.
If you start each day with a glass of orange juice (which infuses your energy field with the sacral chakra color of orange to give you energy, vitality and creativity), then be sure to add a large side order of gratitude. Start each day writing down or mentally reciting 5-10 things that you are grateful for and it will absolutely change your vibration to one that is eager, expectant, and positive. Even better, create a Gratitude Journal so that months and years later you can look back and see your progress! When you go through your day, an attitude of gratitude will give you an eager/expectant/positive vibration that will begin to draw in things to make you feel even more eager/expectant/positive. That vibration will then overshadow what you typically look for (and receive) that are annoying throughout the day (i.e., gridlock traffic, energy vampires at work, unexpected deadlines, no money in the bank account until payday, etc.). Start your day off on the right foot … gratitude + juicy oranges to supercharge a juicy day!
2. End your relationship with fear.
Humans operate from two primary and primal emotions: fear and love. Which controls you throughout the day? For most people, it is fear. We don’t do this intentionally. Our subconscious controls more of our thoughts, beliefs, and actions than we give it credit for. It also soaks up our surroundings like a sponge. When we look around us, things are frankly going bonkers these days. We’re in a massive energy shift, solar flares abound that can cause unexpected outbursts of anger, there’s endless violence, and we’re all feeling a bit off kilter. If you watch the news (CNN = Constantly Negative News), all you hear about are wars, mass shootings, abductions, financial worries, political collapses. Is nothing good anymore? No wonder most people operate from a place of fear. Here’s the trick to living a juicy joyful life … you need to start operating from a place of love and kick fear in patootie. Easier said than done? Not really. It’s time for you to breakup with fear.
Okay, so you’re concerned about how dial down the fear and dial up the love? So let me whisper this really deep secret on how to juice up your heart chakra and shine the love. You simply have to decide to do this. Our conscious mind is very powerful (despite that pesky micro-managing subconscious) and science is proving everyday that our intentions shape our world. So everyday, you must must must set an intention that you will go forth into the world with love. When you do this you will start to notice only those things that resonate with love, you will start to see more people/things/situation that resonate with love, you will respond to stressors with love, and that you will ooze love even to those people who you judgmentally believe don’t deserve it.
So turn off the news, go onto your social media pages and look for those heartwarming stories of people helping people, people helping animals, animals helping animals, and those pay-it-forward stories. What you focus on is what will present itself to you. You need to choose what you focus on, and only focus on good.
If you love crystals, grab those pink and green crystals and pile them onto your heart chakra in the middle of your chest. Even just 10 minutes a day lying with these crystals will open your heart chakra.
Recite affirmations that ooze love. Try these on for size:
- I love and approve of myself just the way that I am.
- I only see the good and love in everything.
- I am surrounded by love and generosity everyday.
4. One daily act of kindness to self, por favor.
When you do something kind for another, you feel good about it right? But when is the last time that you were kind to yourself? Everyday, without fail, you must be kind to yourself. So many people berate themselves (verbally or through their inner voice) and it wears down your energy and makes you vulnerable to negativity. Just image yourself as a three-year-child. Would you berate him/her the way that you berate yourself? Of course, not. There are so many ways simple ways for you to be kind to yourself everyday:
- Start your day with that luxurious shower gel that you think you can’t afford (go for it, you’re worth it!) or pull out the cushy soft bath towels. Pamper yourself!
- Give yourself a breakfast treat (maybe a special coffee, tea or green smoothie).
- If you can have personal items in your workspace, have something that makes you smile. A photo of your loved ones, pets, a favorite crystal, a piece of art, fresh flowers, or a beautiful computer screen saver. I like to keep one of my aromatherapy crystal elixir sprays (like Air Smudge) in my desk and I spritz it whenever I need a boost.
- Take 10 minutes everyday and go outside. Even if you work in a concrete jungle, go outside and breathe the air (hopefully not car fumes), let the sun shine on your face, and instantly distress.
- At the end of the day, spend 10 minutes or more doing something just for YOU! Maybe this is quiet meditation, going for a walk, dancing like Jennifer Beals in Flashdance to some uplifting music, reading a book.
Even if you have a demanding family or endless to-do list, it’s okay for you to take a few minutes every day to take care of yourself. Remember to live your life, not the life of other’s demands. If you don’t take care of yourself, who will?
5. Ooze juiciness to others
And once you’ve consistently performed 1-4 every day faithfully (just like brushing your teeth), you will start to ooze your juicy joy to others naturally. And the one thing that we know about energy (and we are energy bodies) is that what we send out energetically goes to other people and comes back to us. So what do you want coming back to you? Juicy joy or vicious vampires? You will naturally resonate a joyful vibe that people will flock to you to bask in your joy. And when those around you are joyful, doesn’t that make for a better world?
So now I need you to pinky promise that you will do this, faithfully and joyfully, ever day; especially in these challenging energetic times. I promise that you will notice a shift and that all aspects of your life will begin to flow easier. So are you with me?
