I’m right there; I can feel it. Another breakthrough, another awareness, another step closer to on-going and dependable happiness. I continue to climb the mountain knowing that the peak will provide vistas unimaginable – 360 degrees of vision, unsurpassed panoramas, clarity, and heady happiness. We all experience the climb, the plateaus, and the back-slips, and despite all the effort and backward falls, we are willing to brush ourselves off and trek on.
Our indomitable spirit pushes us forward. As we strive for awakening, we often struggle to stay in new moments of enlightenment, but old patterns often snap us back like a bungee. That feeling of being so close, yet so far, is a glimpse of breaking through a ceiling and relinquishing the bungee once and for all. This is the moment when we seek our finest qualities of optimism and perseverance, the qualities that lead the push through the barrier that had held us back. You can do it. When you know that there is a different, happier perspective than the one you are holding on to, you can let it go and break through the ceiling. Do it. Let go of the old and let yourself flow into new truths … the truths that cradle you, guide you, and help you to triumph. Continue the climb up your personal mountain and discover fresh clarity that brings everlasting joy.
What are some of the truths that our spirit wants to know? What universal elements will carry us up the mountain toward freedom and happiness? The most important is that Love Is All There Is. Everything we want, feel, explore, experience, desire, or think is predicated on the energy of love … either aligning with it or not aligning with it. Quite simply, we were born to be happy and we can be happy. Aligning with the energy of love strengthens that happiness. If you are feeling unhappy, you have separated from the energy of love to some extent or another. If you feel frustrated, worn out, listless, resentful, angry, forlorn, or despondent, you have separated from the quality of love to some degree.
The mind, body, and spirit are all connected and when harmonized, provide the greatest canvas for love and happiness. When you are thinking negatively, the mind is the element in discord. The mind, therefore, is not the greatest resource to rescue itself from itself. For this reason, getting your body involved can often release the mind’s grip on the negative.
Use this easy tool to help you re-energize your climb toward clarity: Each time you sense a poor quality feeling, elicit your body to break your focus. Smile, for instance. The smile may feel unnatural, but somehow it will shift your focus. What pops into your head as you force a smile on your face? Imagine yourself in front of a mirror with this goofy smile. What would others think if they saw you right now? What would you say if they asked you why you’re smiling?
You can also try standing in a V-formation – arms over head, open wide toward the sky. Perhaps put your head back and reach your palms upward. This basic stance can help alter your thoughts. Movement can get you outside of your head long enough to break the cycle of negative thinking.
If time permits, go for a walk, a run, a swim, or a bike ride. Move your body to move your thoughts. Every tool you have in your success tool-belt will enhance your ability to break through your personal barriers to achieve what you want. Use and enjoy this tool as one step closer to living consistently joyfully atop the mountain.
What others are saying:
“I wanted to say thank you. After meeting you and reading your book, your words continue to encourage my awareness on a daily basis. I have grown exponentially and have been so inspired by your messages that they are a permanent influence on my growth. As I continue, I hope to be able to share this with others and I do every day. Your book THE ANSWERS has had the single largest impact on me to date, and for that I thank you.” -Jenny Patterson Israel
