Ten Keys to Happiness In Spirituality – On September 14, 2014

Here are my 10 keys to happiness:
Here are my 10 keys to happiness:
1. Listen to your body’s wisdom, which expresses itself through signals of comfort and discomfort. When choosing a certain behavior, ask your body, “How do you feel about this?” If your body sends a signal of physical or emotional distress, watch out. If your body sends a signal of comfort and eagerness, proceed.
2. Live in the present, for it is the only moment you have. Keep your attention on what is here and now; look for the fullness in every moment.Accept what comes to you totally and completely so that you can appreciate it, learn from it, and then let it go. The present is as it should be. It reflects infinite laws of Nature that have brought you this exact thought, this exact physical response. This moment is as it is because the universe is as it is. Don’t struggle against the infinite scheme of things; instead, be at one with it.
3. Take time to be silent, to meditate, to quiet the internal dialogue. In moments of silence, realize that you are recontacting your source of pure awareness. Pay attention to your inner life so that you can be guided by intuition rather than externally imposed interpretations of what is or isn’t good for you.
4. Relinquish your need for external approval. You alone are the judge of your worth, and your goal is to discover infinite worth in yourself, no matter what anyone else thinks. There is great freedom in this realization. When you find yourself reacting with anger or opposition to any person or circumstance, realize that you are only struggling with yourself. Putting up resistance is the response of defenses created by old hurts.
5. When you find yourself reacting with anger or opposition to any person or circumstance, realize that you are only struggling with yourself. Putting up resistance is the response of defenses created by old hurts. When you relinquish this anger, you will be healing yourself and cooperating with the flow of the universe.
6. Know that the world “out there” reflects your reality “in here.” The people you react to most strongly, whether with love or hate, are projections of your inner world. What you most hate is what you most deny in yourself. What you most love is what you most wish for in yourself. Use the mirror of relationships to guide your evolution. The goal is total self-knowledge. When you achieve that, what you most want will automatically be there, and what you most dislike will disappear.
7. Shed the burden of judgment – you will feel much lighter. Judgment imposes right and wrong on situations that just are. Everything can be understood and forgiven, but when you judge, you cut off understanding and shut down the process of learning to love. In judging others, you reflect your lack of self-acceptance. Remember that every person you forgive adds to your self-love.
8. Don’t contaminate your body with toxins, either through food, drink, or toxic emotions. Your body is more than a life-support system. It is the vehicle that will carry you on the journey of your evolution. The health of every cell directly contributes to your state of well being, because every cell is a point of awareness within the field of awareness that is you.
9. Replace fear-motivated behavior with love-motivated behavior. Fear is the product of memory, which dwells in the past. Remembering what hurt us before, we direct our energies toward making certain that an old hurt will not repeat itself. But trying to impose the past on the present will never wipe out the threat of being hurt. That happens only when you find the security of your own being, which is love. Motivated by the truth inside you, you can face any threat because your inner strength is invulnerable to fear.
10. Understand that the physical world is just a mirror of a deeper intelligence. Intelligence is the invisible organizer of all matter and energy, and since a portion of this intelligence resides in you, you share in the organizing power of the cosmos. Because you are inseparably linked to everything, you cannot afford to foul the planet’s air and water. But at a deeper level, you cannot afford to live with a toxic mind, because every thought makes an impression on the whole field of intelligence. Living in balance and purity is the highest good for you and the Earth

People often ask, “What is the best way to move into a higher state of vibration?” The simplest answer is to take ownership of your personal power, how you use it, where you give energy to and how you facilitate your emotional state.
One of the most common ways in which power is given away is through fear. Whenever you fear something happening/not happening you are in fact giving energy and power to the very outcome you do not wish for. It is extremely challenging to be the master over your fear, as humanity has been taught for eons to listen to it.
Fear comes from the Ego telling you that it does not feel in control of a given situation. That situation could be health, money, relationships, government, etc. Look at the areas of your life where you feel fear and anxiety. Ask yourself, why do I feel fear when it comes to my family, but not for my health? Or, why do I feel fear when it comes to my money, but not my relationships? Your answer, while you may think it is mere logic, is rooted in your past life history, and what you as a soul have personally experienced before.
Learn how to safely dive deep into your fear, so that you can dig it out. Imagine like it is hidden pockets of dust inside of you. You are made of light energy, the light energy is a natural cleaner of the dust. But just like dusting the house, you have to pick up and look underneath items, clean behind the bookshelves, and under the bed, in order to get it all cleaned up.
Much is the same with fear. It can hide behind a certain emotion, or experience, and lurk within your inner child. Explore these places and spaces within you, or work with an expert who can safely assist you with that exploration. The more fear your transform, the less likely you are to give your power to it. The more of your power your own, the more your energy grows.
There are other ways in which you can give your energy away. Another common way is through anger. Anger and passion are often confused. Anger comes from an intention of destruction; rage, revenge and so forth. Passion comes from a strong feeling to positively change a situation. Anger is: “This person, or that situation, pisses me off.” Passion is: “I need to change the energy with this person or that situation.”
The words you blurt out in a time of reaction, will tell you if you are operating from a place of anger, or a place of passion. Often anger hides deep within the subconscious, and fools us into thinking it is passion. Learn to understand the words you say, or the words you think in your mind. They speak volumes as to whether you are intending passion or anger. Anger only leads to more anger. Passion leads to change. We have lived in a world built upon anger and fear, the only way to change that is to first change it within yourself.
So, how do you own your energy and own your power? Learn detachment. Detachment is about remaining peaceful NO MATTER WHAT is happening. When you are in peace about something, your intuition can speak clearly through you, and advise you when it is time to act. If you are not at a feeling of peace, it is much easier for the voices of anger or fear to influence you.
Detachment is not ignorance. Detachment is about giving over to intuition completely. There will be many things popping up in the headlines designed to upset you and incite fear, or anger, or sadness. However, if you remain in detachment, you will be able to view the events as a movie. This allows your intuition to remain pure, so that you are not spurred to act by another person’s seed of anger/fear energy. This is vitally important. Owning your energy and your power, means that you do not allow the words, deeds and actions of another to move your emotional state in any direction! This is not about being numb, it is about managing your own emotional state.
Whenever you feel yourself feeling anger, fear, sadness, doubt, shame or any other similar emotion, all you need to do is to ask for it to be transformed in the highest energy. Here is a simple process that you can use:
- State aloud or in your mind: “I ask that only the Highest Energies of the Light surround me, offering me protection, clearing, healing and guidance.”
- Take a few breaths at a relaxed pace. You want to feel your body and mind begin to slow down.
- Visualize yourself surrounded by a golden-pink light. This is the blending of the Divine Spirit and Gaia (Mother Earth). Continue to breathe at a relaxed pace.
- Now visualize that beautiful energy entering each cell of your body, see your cells opening up to allow the energy in.
- Now see your solar plexus (stomach region) open a release valve. This release valve only works in one direction, to funnel out of the body the emotions you are releasing.
- Now see this valve release the emotions like a fountain, in one big powerful stream of energy. You can say “Whoosh, they are gone.” Or “I release you now” or any simple phrase that comes to mind. This is a rapid energetic blast from the body, and the energy of your emotions is immediately transformed into Light and Love energy upon release.
- Now the release valve closes.
- The golden pink light continues to pour into each cell, filling in the space vacated by the emotion you just released.
- Say “Thank you,” and trust that transformation has been done.
Each time you do this, you are going in and uncovering those hidden places where the dust hides, and doing some deep cleaning. If you discover that you are having difficulty with a reoccurring emotion, or challenge, then it would be a good idea to work with someone who can help you with the release process. Often those pieces of emotion, are stuck to past life memories and emotional control patterns needing to be explored and removed in entirely.
You have the power to choose in any moment, what you are going to give your energy to. Are you going to give to fear, or are you going to give to peace?
Looking for some extra assistance in transforming your fears and owning your power? I have developed a 5 Day intensive program, where I personalize it for you, your strengths and for where you are in your development process.

Whenever I ask people what they really want, the answer is always love. To love and to be loved and to feel love, to be part of it, to be all of it. To be enfolded, to be nurtured by it, to find the Joy in the love that is the essence of existence. Yet so often it seems that love passes us by, that we are in a situation that we believe to be loving, only to find out that it is no more than manipulation and control. Most of us have been there, perhaps all of us.
I would like to share with you some thoughts about reaching the depths of love that simply has no words. It cannot be analyzed by mind but is reached sometimes through the mind and the thoughts. A love that can be remembered, a love that can be brought into this time, this moment, this now.
Before you can love another, you must love yourself for you will never find that mirror that you so desire in another if your own space is not true. As children we are rarely taught to love ourselves, to nurture ourselves, but more often to give to others, to be useful, to be of service, to be open and generous. Yet, taking time for yourself is essential, and never more than now during the Shift of the Ages. As you focus more on yourself, you can let go the old beliefs, the old attitudes inherited from those around you and go into your Heart space, for here and only here will you find the Truth, and here and only here will you find the Joy of your own being.
Do you love yourself first and foremost with an open Heart? If you are reading this without being in Joy, stop right here, right now, and smile into your Heart and consider how you feel. Do this before you proceed so you are hearing all these words from your space of Truth.
When the illusions of the world are strong, when you believe them, when you do not have the ability to see through them, life is fraught with difficulty. If you believe you have to look a certain way, to act a certain way, or to copy others whose pictures you see so frequently in the press, those who set trends, those who create ways of being that are acceptable in an illusory society.
None of this matters. Not to the Heart, not to the Soul. It is a case of stepping into your authentic self, the self that knows, the self you can hear from the small quiet voice of your Heart. You came to this planet to bring Joy, and if this is not your goal, if this is not your way of living, then stop, stop right now. Ask your Heart, am I feeling Joy? Am I feeling that wonderful, exuberance of the child that skips and dances for the very sake of it? The passion of it, the feeling of it. Am I smiling?
Joy is your goal, Joy is your way of being. Yet so few walk and talk such things. When you meet a joyful person, it is like a Light in a darkened room, and you want that, you want it so much, that it becomes the focus of where you are going. And this Joy that bubbles up in your Heart will not be quiet, will not be still, for it is your life, it brings an aliveness so beautiful, so exquisite that every waking moment is a delight. When you wake in the morning and you feel Joy, you may want to greet the dawn as we did so long ago in the Temple of Isis at Philae in Egypt, with our arms outstretched in praise.
We were part of it all you see, part of creation. We learned to breathe with the rhythm of the Earth, our Beloved Gaia. As small children we were laid gently upon the Earth with our ear against her skin to hear her rhythm, to follow her breath.
We delighted in so much that has been long forgotten in an age where the mind rules. Perhaps the way to move into a loving, joyful space is to be more with children, to see that they laugh at nothing, but laugh until they roll on the floor clutching their tummies, in such absolute expression of delight. Children when they are very young still have imagination and are free. Where is that child within you? Do they still have a voice? Ask yourself this to the stillness of your Heart.
In this time of vast change that we are all experiencing it is more important than ever to love yourself, to close the door, to be still, to meditate, to breath, to go into that deep place in the Heart that knows. If you are spending your days at some type of work in which you do not have Joy, consider why you are doing it. Consider the time it takes; consider if this is what you were born to do.
You are here on this Earth to emanate Joy, to be that Joy, to feel it in every cell and atom in your body and to know it intimately. This is not a doingness, it is a beingness, a stillness, yet it is alive. You cannot capture it any more than you can hold water in your hands, you cannot bottle it, you cannot contain it, other than in every moment of every second. It is your Essential Self, and is the most precious thing of all. It will show in your eyes and show in your smile. It will show in your hug.
It will Light up your Life.

Within the old 3d earth created reality we are taught from the moment we take our first breath to alter our behavior in order to be accepted by those around us. The child who has a temper tantrum and has the response of those around him being one of non acceptance will grow up to believe that his anger should never be displayed. He may believe that he is never supposed to ever feel anger and will then start altering his behavior to keep his anger hidden. This is just one example of how we alter our behavior in direct response of how our emotions were responded to as we grew up.
At this time the heightened energies are working to release CELLULAR PATTERNING and this is experienced as deep emotion at a human conscious waking mind level. The behavior patterns that were adopted are not TRUTH, the human vehicle naturally will seek balance and it will naturally try to release the emotions that are experienced. It will do this at increasingly “louder” rates, so any pain or discomfort in the body will only grow if it is not acknowledged. In a world that has taught that to feel any pain is somehow not “normal” this creates a society that seeks to detach from the symptoms felt and find “instant” relief. This works to push the emotions deeper into the human vehicle and results in many disease patterns that can be seen very clearly within families. Indeed how families respond to each others emotions sets these behavior patterns from a very early age.
At this time you may have emotions that are coming up that are uncomfortable, you may try to detach from them and seek to adopt the behavior that has “worked” for you up until this moment. Whether this is eating, going on facebook, watching a movie, etc you will find that this no longer works as it once did. This is due to the background of frequency that is now flooding across the planet seeking to release that which is not TRUTH. Only TRUTH is supported in the New Earth frequency realities and any behavior patterns that are not TRUTH will no longer manifest as they are not supported.
The human vehicle is DESIGNED to self heal, the medical industry would seek to teach you that it repairs and cures but it merely masks the voice of the human vehicle itself. Our human vehicle talks to us at all moments, whether we listen to it and respond as the human vehicle wants us to is our choice. Our body will naturally tell us what it needs but within the old 3d earth created construct we have been taught to rely on those around us who do not live within our human vehicle. YOU are the expert of your human vehicle for you reside within it 24/7. We are taught to FEAR our own human vehicles and to seek an “expert” who will then tell us what to do. This is not supported in the New Earth frequency realities as many are now experiencing.
In order to heal the human vehicle must be allowed to release any stored emotion, for emotion was never designed to be anchored within the human vehicle, it was designed to FLOW within, around and through. It is the static nature of the old 3d earth created construct that seeks to teach this “holding on” behavior and it is said “holding on” that creates the patterns of disease which are the DECONSTRUCTION of the cellular structure of the human vehicle. The release of these emotions sees the higher frequencies flow through, around and within the human vehicle, cleansing and clearing FREQUENCY. As the frequencies are released and the emotions are experienced then clarity can begin to unfold. Extreme and deep emotions work to blind us to the experience itself, memories are the old 3d earth created construct’s ways of keeping us within patterns of behavior by triggering the very emotions that we then create our own personal prisons from.
It is to be noted that whilst we are asked to acknowledge the emotions we are not asked to relive the actual experience, the experience itself has been experienced it is our emotional reaction that has been delayed by the “holding on”. By acknowledging the emotion, by FEELing the emotion as it arises and responding to the emotion itself we can begin to release it and heal from it.
This may sound simple and it is, this is why many will filter it out believing that it cannot be “this simple”, this is how the old 3d earth created reality hides TRUTH, by teaching us that something must be complex and we must be in control of it. There is often a feeling of being “out” of control when emotions arise within us. We are being asked only to FEEL not to take action, the FEELing is the action and this is what many will filter out, many may actually fear the FEELing believing that they will be in even more pain, this is not TRUTH, the pain is triggered and continually experienced by the “holding on”.
At this time we are asked to surrender to how we FEEL, to take time to be with ourselves and our FEELings, many may be in complete surprise at how freeing the process actually is and at first it may seem “odd” to remember without the accompanying sting of emotion. We as a race are moving into a new way of living and being and part of this process is allowing our human vehicles to “RESET” themselves back into their own natural rhythms. Our emotions have a rhythm of their own which has been masked and filtered out for eternity. As we begin to understand our emotional playground we can begin to align to our natural rhythm and this will see barriers broken down from within us.
The old 3d earth created construct will continue to try to teach us that we must be in control of everything and this is not TRUTH, we are here to have a human life experience, all human emotions are an experience, they are no worse or better than any others, again this is a teaching that seeks to keep us out of balance. We are not here only to experience happiness as we are not here only to experience sadness, we are here to experience the myriad of emotions that can only be experienced in a human form.
ALL JUST IS and WE ARE, now we are asked to allow the deep healing to begin for our spirit that sits with GOD is guiding this process at all moments of all moments. We are merely stepping on the path to NATURAL BALANCE and ALIGNMENT with the LOVE that IS, we are not creating the LOVE that IS for it exists already, it has always existed for it is the very fabric that we were created from.
In order to flow into natural balance we need only let go and let NATURE take its course, to allow the flow of all the held emotion sees us clear our our human vehicle to cellular level, this allows us to anchor more and more of the higher dimensional frequencies that lead to a richer and more fulfilling human life experience but this TRUTH sits just beyond our emotional pain levels, the prison walls are the pain that we have been TAUGHT to accept as part of this human life experience. In order to heal and to move into expansion we must free ourselves from our own self created prisons and we do this by listening to our heart space, by acknowledging our emotions no matter what they are, to FEEL them leave our human vehicles and then allow the natural rebalance that will occur. This is a process it is not an event and the process is one that we must go through in order to leave the old 3d earth created construct and step into the wider human life experience in TRUTH.
To hold on will see anxiety, frustration and physical pain increase within our human vehicles, to surrender and to TRUST the process will see peace and a sense of harmony begin to unfold around us, through us and within us.
“LOVE is the answer, no matter the question”
