KISS

Kiss your indecision goodbye. Kiss your complaints or conflict goodbye.  Kiss fault lines goodbye.  From now on, all you have to do is KISS life.

KISS – a simple formula to navigate life.

Keep

It

Short

Sweet

Keep your words and intention short and sweet, meaning live from your empathetic heart.  Instead of talking to someone in a raging diatribe, KISS it. Say what you mean simply but absent venom.  Managing any relationship can present challenges, but the sweetness of life offers the opportunity to regulate emotions and re-assign fault.

When you KISS a decision, it lifts you beyond the messiness of constant quandary.  Think about the choices you have when posed with a personal challenge and then think short and sweet of the outcomes after which it is time to make a decision.

Japanese use the term arugamama to describe a sense of acceptance.  KISS is your arugamama – you accept what you need to confront and then use simple, sweet active steps to live whole.

You are whole, now KISS life.

Miracle Monday: Quiet

A miracle will happen today! What a fabulous declaration for Monday.

It is true that you can reach any goal with the proper perspective.  One grounding exercise is to be quiet-really quiet in the mind and mouth.

My request today, especially after the possible frenzy from holiday travel, gatherings or shopping last week, open this week with some quiet mindfulness.  Pause for a moment, right where you are and do a mental examination of various aspects of your life and determine whether you are satisfied with them. For example, you may think about finances during this time. If so, examine how you feel about money and how you manage money right now. Or, you may need to think longer about a family relationship. Consider the dynamics of the interactions you have with that particular person.  It does not matter what you spend your quiet time on, simply quietly think.

Now that you have spent the requisite quiet time with mindfulness and you know what you intend to improve, next take a sheet of paper and begin jotting notes about the ideal circumstances you would like to create whether it’s with money, family relationships or some other aspect of your life. Creatively write, as offered by Julie Cameron. As you write, without censure, tap into your core of pure genius, and let perfect solutions flow onto the page.

Quiet mindfulness allows you to co-create through the purity of divine intention the most solid, revealing solutions. The barriers that tend to block your flow of manifesting a miracle often comes from your learned response to control or force solutions that ends up creating more blockages in our lives. Release your mind, let go of your thoughts of control, and open yourself to the flowing fonts of inner governance.

“In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.”

~Robert Heinlein

Relax and open your mind to creative inspiration and you will euphorically discover that creating inspiring details of what you want becomes a simple and effortless process. You can manifest a miracle simply by first knowing in clear detail the circumstances you intend to create and then inviting the perfect solutions to materialize. What you then attract is a powerful intention that operates on your behalf to give you what you want or something better.

Bob Proctor always asks: What do you want?

When you can clearly answer that question, believe me, your circumstances will then shift, and eventually match the inner intentions you hold  for your life, be it money, relationships, family, weight or anything else.

Today, quietly make your miracle.

How Happiness Happens

Is it a plane? Is it a star? No, it’s happiness.

Questions surround the quest for happiness almost as much as people question what is up in the sky. The difference oftentimes is that the curious gazers will research and seek answers. How about you?

Are you curious about happiness?

I sure am curious about happiness (joy), especially since being happy and grateful is my daily quest. My inquiring mind wants to know – How Happiness Happens.

Researchers have found that you cannot compartmentalize happiness; meaning, I am happy at home but not a work. No, no, no. Findings suggest that Happiness Happens when you are congruent with your emotions both at home and at work or anytime there is synchronicity with your divine, true purpose.

Marshall and Kelly Goldsmith commissioned a study on happiness and reported their findings in the December 21, 2009 issue of Business Week. One validating point in the article is that “Those who were more satisfied with life outside of work were the respondents who reported spending more time on activities that produced both happiness and meaning.”

Here are some activities that stimulate happiness:
1. Exercise
2. Lovemaking
3. Challenges
4. Hobbies
5. Volunteering
6. Chores
7. Social or Religious Outings
8. Healthy Relationships
9. Travel

The list is not exhaustive, by any means. What may be a “happy” moment for you may be an experience that means little to others. The point is: doing something – either mentally, spiritually, or socially – produces happiness endorphins which stimulate joy.

You are tasked to find your happiness.

Start at Activity #1 – exercise. A moving body is a stimulated body. Fitness experts say that a mere 15 minutes of movement a day is enough to produce enough endorphins to be purposeful.

Activity #2 – lovemaking causes the coupling effect which activates a “rush” of high emotions and a rush of stimulating feelings of belonging, trust, sharing, harmony.

Moving on, solving challenges – Activity # 3 or Activity #7 – require you to engage mental, spiritual, and social muscle. This is good. Any activity that combines engagement zones is quite healthy for your body, mind, and spirit. The operative measure here is actively “doing” something.

Happiness Happens moment by moment when you are actively in a place of deliberate action, appreciation and intention. Spend time with those you love, get busy, watch less television, and find less to complain and criticize about.

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~ Frederick Keonig

Be happy. Make happiness happen!
