What if, at the moment, you feel like you have no control over your well-being and life cycles?
You’ll know this is happening to you if you feel punished for your emotional honesty and you hope things work out.
So, rather than trying to structure your life, you end up nervous about speaking the truth.
The issue isn’t that you’re afraid to go with the flow. The issue is that you’re not engaged in your own life story.
During this 30 minute session you will learn:
- How happiness is simple
- What is in the way of happiness
- How to align with happiness
Even if, in the past, you’ve felt punished for your emotional honesty.
Please do your best to watch/listen to each part in order.
How is Happiness Simple?
How can happiness be simple? The answer is in the question – when life has simplicity.
Why? Because then you’re experiencing from your ‘right hemisphere’ world - the world of feelings, emotions and expression of sensations.
These are all things we’ve forgotten in a world absorbed in the left hemisphere dominance of acquisition, denial of feelings, and analytics.
Being happy means you have the power to change things.
Right-hemisphere thinking allows for this, through imagination.
Being unhappy means you’re stuck with things being the same.
Left-hemisphere thinking takes life at face-value, a belief that “it is how it is”.
When you use imagination, you find a way out, even if things feel difficult. That option is happiness.
So what is in the way of happiness?
In a word – rigidity.
When you believe that nothing can change, that gets in the way of happiness.
People usually live in the past or in the future, rarely the present. And they look to the outside, always comparing themselves with others.
These are all distractions, keeping happiness at bay.
So how do you align with happiness?
You allow the present to happen.
How? By owning uncomfortable facts.
This allows you to cope with stress by engaging with reality.
What I found I got sucked into for a long time was denying the reality of how people are. You end up hoping others will fulfil your expectations of them. But that’s not their purpose.
Often, people show up to reflect your self-worth. If they’re not very nice, it means you have the choice to accept something better, rather than try to force them to change.
So what are three little things you can do to achieve a happier life?
- Experiment. Happy people don’t shy away from new experiences. Put simply - new experiences expand your consciousness.
- Inner growth. When you get to know yourself, others cannot define your worth. Inner growth develops resilience.
- Own the present. Deal with things as they are, not as you hope they are. When you do this, it takes you out of restriction and into solutions - freedom to find solutions creates a happy life.
It will take a few goes – BUT you will feel you can move into what makes a happy life.
