Simple words...

LIVE YOUR LIFE IN JOY

Harder to Accomplish in a World that's gone Plum Crazy....

Of course escape is not really an option...Although I have contemplated living on my own island, if I am being honest...However EVEN if I Could live on my own little island in my own little world...I would have to find JOY in order to be HAPPY...If I still held onto complaining/criticizing/and condemning...Nothing would really Change at all, would it?

So I suppose it is safe for us to Acknowledge that...No matter WHERE we Live...No matter if we are surrounded by chaos...or on our own little island...It is STILL a CONSCIOUS DECISION that We Must Make Within Ourselves to ENJOY LIFE...It is up to Us...It is our CHOICE...Our Decision....Our Birthright!

(Was that too much? I was fist Pumpin' in my own head and got a little excited there!)

So we have to take ACCOUNTABILITY of our own JOY, don't we?

Where does Joy Start? It starts...In your HEART! It is How you FEEL...

Your Emotion sends a signal to your body...Whether it is a HAPPY thought/feeling or a Not so Happy one...determines if you release HAPPY HORMONES or STRESS HORMONES...

That's Where it all STARTS...

So our FEELINGS dictate our own Hormones...Right?

Happy = GOOD HORMONES

Not Happy = NOT SO GOOD

Okay...So what?

BIG WHAT!!!! Let me tell you...

Your HORMONES are a SOURCE...Everything Begins and Ends with your Hormones...

WHY?

Because HAPPY HORMONES = Send HAPPY FEEL GOOD all Throughout your Whole Body and you THRIVE...You ADD to your Days...To your Joy...To your Life...To your Quality of Life and Well Being...Oh, and Did I mention you TURN ON YOUR FAT-BURNERS?!?!?!

Makes sense Right...When you are Taking Good Care of yourself and Feeling GOOD about your Decisions, your Body Rewards you by Getting HEALTHIER...Doesn't It? You are Rewarded for Making Healthy Choices. Everything Just Seems BETTER. JOY is the MOST POWERFUL EMOTION we have! That is why we should all Strive to Live in JOY.

Now, Let's just flip that for a moment and see what happens with Stress...

Oh-oh-oh-oh STRESS...just the name makes you Shudder a little bit doesn't it? It makes me feel like saying "the name which shall not be spoken"...Cuz that is how POWERFUL just one word is...It paints pictures right away...We begin to react just from the association...

So now let's just say we are having a Stressful time or stressful thoughts...Now what happens...Well we create the Emotion or the FEELING...Then our body responds with Hormones...Only this time...We send out Not so Good for You Hormones...and they go to every space in our body...filling it with gunk that gets caught-up, which slows everything down...ESPECIALLY PROGRESS...and...Very Unfortunately...We Turn our FAT STORING ON...and all we can do..Is STORE FAT...

When we are feeling low emotions or negative emotions...our body responds negatively...We take AWAY from our Life...We slow down the Progress...We create inflammations and Blockages...Sickness..and Disease...Don't we? We STORE MORE FAT...We get trapped in a vicious downward cycle...

That is so depressing...I have to stop talking that way...but I want you to see the connections...

So what can we do to LIVE IN JOY

I don't usually like to Focus on what you Shouldn't do...but what you SHOULD Do Instead...However, I find this image gives us some great places to start...










Remember...The Big KEY is:




Live in the PRESENT...and ENJOY LIFE for the GIFT that it is!

YOUR VIBE -- ATTRACTS YOUR TRIBE

Whoooo! I Love that! Let's Get it!

I Just KNOW this one is TRUE!!! I just LIVED it Last Night! EXPERIENCE to share with you...but before I share what happened to me...Let's Break it Down first...To UNDERSTAND...Because Words are just words unless you UNDERSTAND them...and to Understand them...You must consider them...

So take this thought with you today...

YOUR VIBE -- ATTRACTS YOUR TRIBE

Your VIBE...How you Feel...What you are Focusing your Attention on...The things you project and the things that you think MATTER.

If you have read about NEUROPLASTICITY which we discussed Yesterday (in the PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER Thread in the REFERENCE Threads or on my Sparkpage in my BLOGS) You will recall that our Brains are malleable...meaning...We can make them CHANGE pathways...and those pathways will Grow to the Direction we use most...POSITIVE or NEGATIVE...Our CHOICE...and the BEAUTIFUL part is once that bridge is formed (or auto-pilot is established) We CAN CHANGE that pattern and actually CHANGE the form of our Brain...and what it FOCUSes on More...Either BLESSINGS or HARDSHIPS...and what you FOCUS on...You will Find...Focus on Blessings you will find MORE Blessings...Focus on Hardships...You will find MORE Hardships...Understand?

But taking it a step further than that...What you THINK matters...Because there is the Law of ATTRACTION to consider...You've heard of this? No? Let me share...There IS Such a thing...Lemme Drop some KNOWLEDGE on ya...



I also want to share a video clip because this is Important to UNDERSTAND. I don't think I would usually choose celebrities to express this...but by golly...They are folks just like us...and they have already achieved and Understand...and perhaps we can relate to one of them better than anything I could say.


Celebrities talk, "The Law Of Attraction" (So Inspiring!)

One more...Just for another Perspective...

The Tools That Creates Your Reality! (Law Of Attraction)
www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeGopEMDBkY


Now...If we can all agree on the Law of Attraction... The Universe LOVES GRATITUDE...Put your FOCUS into what you LOVE and DESIRE and you can Manifest what your heart BELIEVES to be True. Now, that DOES mean it works Both Ways...So you Must Choose your Words, Thoughts, Intentions Carefully and Purposefully...Let not Ego/Fear/Doubt/Mistrust leak in...Elst, you may find yourself in those situations afterall...

I find it best to Focus on Not what you Don't want...But what you DO want...Everyone can list reason after reason after reason Why Not...Be Specific in your Thought and say WHY instead...

For instance, I have got to share this BIGGIE...I learned this on a long while ago, but now I UNDERSTAND WHY it makes sense...

How many folks will say..."Don't forget to... _______________." Go ahead...Fill in the blank...Could be anything.

Ever said that? I used to...Until I realized (and you know this to be true as well, I am sure.) Whenever you tell someone NOT to do something...What in the heck do they Do? What you said NOT to...Right?

The thing is...and this is the Kicker...Your Mind accepts whatever images you send it...It does not read your words, nor understand the language...It communicates through IMAGES and EMOTIONS...This can be proved by - we don't always get what we SAY we want.

Are you with me still? Stay with me...I'm explaining the process here...It's kinda BIG...I wanna be sure it is being UNDERSTOOD and the message is being Received...So Please Stop me or ask if you have any questions...I want to make sure there are More than Words...but an Image and an Understanding of this concept...

We can SAY one thing...We can Read it...and Read it...and the message does get planted...Not by the words...but by the thought... because the Thought or the Intention is there...BUT...The Outcome does not always match up with our words...Otherwise when we all said THIS IS IT...That would'a been it...BUT...NOT quite that Simple...

In order to manifest something into Fruition...You must Focus on what you DO Want and Consider that you ALREADY HAVE it...(Your MIND and BODY DO Respond to what your Brain THINKS and PERCEIVES to be TRUE.) Does everyone Understand that part so far?


Do you see How when you say "Don't Forget...blah, blah, blah." Or "Don't Spill blah, blah, blah"...(You get the idea.) Usually what happens is...Whatever you Said NOT to Happen...Happened...Or it works in Reverse...Whatever you said To Happen...Did NOT Happen...

WHY?

Words are NOT the Catalyst, you see...THOUGHTS are. When you say not to think of something or do something...Folks think on that...and that is what happens...Their Subconscious...Or the Universe Delivers...

Now let's CHANGE it around, just a little bit...

What happens when you say...REMEMBER...Folks Remember...You say "Remember to..." and sure enough...It happens. Because you FOCUSED on what you WANTED, rather than what you did NOT want...You see?

Now let's take that thought a bit further, shall we? Dive in just a little Deeper for some UNDERSTANDING...

Think of your own Journey...Where are you? Are you where you WANT to be? Or are you stuck where you do NOT want to be?

Only you know the answer...And your heart Surely knows. I'm not asking for me...Ask Yourself. Listen to your own heart.

Are you following your Intuition? Listening to what YOU have to say and being mindful to how you FEEL about things?

Ask yourself WHAT are you FOCUSING on? Is it what you Don't want? Or what you DO want?

I'm telling you now...Shift your FOCUS and Shift your Fate...It IS that Simple...

Attract what you WANT...NOT what you Don't want...

If you want PEACE...Then FOCUS on PEACE...Not war...or thoughts of it...PEACE is what you WANT...Focus on THAT. Put all your Power into PEACE. And you WILL Find it.

Do you follow?

If you want a HAPPY-HEALTHY-WONDERFUL LIFE...Then Focus on That...Not all of the things Ego and Consciousness would want to Focus on...Or better yet...Be DISTRACTED by...Focus more on the GOOD and More of the GOOD will Come to you...It WILL...Just Try it and see...KNOW for Yourself. You can do this...We ALL can...

WHEN we Do Focus on the Good and start Changing our neuroplasticity of our brains...Or how they respond to our thoughts...We can Reprogram them...actually make pathways and bridges to the Positive...Or we go to the Negative...and that will be most Dominate depending on our auto-pilot...The beauty in it is...We have CHOICE and we Get to Decide!

So we can have that Life of Misery...If that is what we want to Focus on...OR...We can have that Life of JOY...Where Positive things Radiate and Transpire all around you...We can do that! We are that AMAZING!

Now...For the how I KNOW this is True through Experience...and this is just most recent...as I said...It happened last night.

I have one heck of a Friend...We call ourselves Yin and Yang because we are always Living The Same Lives in Different States, It would seem. So Connected...She lives about 9 or 10 hours away...We met through Spark 8 years ago. As I said...We built an incredible bond...We just knew we had to meet...So she hopped in her car with her kids and road tripped all the way up to meet us. (Myself and my family.) Our meeting was a mere technicality because I am telling you...We already Knew each other even though we had never met. She is such an Inspiration and a Motivator to me...

Things Change...and Suddenly, we were not getting the pleasure of each other's company Through phone calls or sparktime, like we used to...and then more things changed...and we had not talked very much at all...Never feeling neglected (either one, I am pretty sure I can speak for her...I usually can, and she for me. We are usually of the same thinking. emoticon )

Anyway...Fast Forward some time...My Energy and Vibration were so low...I was going through some heavy stuff...and we were not really on the same connection anymore...We were not matching up in our Energy and our Thoughts...I was so low...I could only go up...

And Up I did...With a Vengeance...Learning, Changing, Growing, Finding My Spark...Getting my Vibration, My Frequency, My Energy back to an AWESOME Level...Where my Friend Jeni hangs out...We got on the same wavelength again...I was thinking of her...In fact I have pictures of our meeting that scroll through a digital picture frame in my kitchen...and I think on my Jeni gurl...and then last night....After not really being connected for so long...She came to our Library and she Joined in...After being away from Spark for so long...and I think this is the Beginning of something AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL! I am So HAPPY you are with us Jeni...and I DO look forward to more a you in my days!!!!

So remember the LAW of ATTRACTION as you go about your Days and your Thoughts and your Intentions...What you THINK Matters!

Now do you see how YOUR VIBE ATTRACTS YOUR TRIBE! And I just invited one of the best gals back into my Tribe...and I am so Joyous over our Reunion.

So...What's your VIBE doin'? What Kind of Tribe do you Have? What kind of Tribe do you WANT...Go Attract That which you WANT! You Can...and You Will...Be Conscious of your Thoughts and See if things Change in your Life. I Know already...They WILL.

Your Mind is POWERFUL and It is YOUR to Use...So Use it to your own Advantage and LIVE that LIFE you DREAM of...Not Dread. You got this...and Now You Know.
