“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.”
There is nothing as radiant and attractive as a joyful heart. Joy is heart centred, and is the spiritual expression of happiness. It is centred in deep gratitude and awareness, even though it can be generated by the most simple of things. It is all about smiling from the inside, breaking open with infectious enthusiasm and zest for life, love and gratitude and rainbow sparks shooting from your eyes, laughter and kindness and feeling abundant and benevolent towards the world…
This is a gorgeous activity, and one of my favourites. I call it “Bliss Bombing”. Take yourself to a public place, like a mall, coffee shop, or a bench in a park near where people are walking by. Sit somewhere unobtrusive. When someone walks past, shoot a radiant shower of sparks from your heart to theirs and silently bless them with love. You can even send joy and love from your heart to trees, animals, plants, bus-loads of commuters and overhead planes. You might want to say to yourself, “I bless you with love. Know joy today.” If anyone catches your eye, just smile.
Feel your open heart begin to tingle with energy and joy. In that place of energetic connection look around you at the world and you will see that it IS brighter and more beautiful. YOU contributed to that shift. It’s okay to let your face crack open from smiling! Expect an outpouring of feel-good emotion. ♥
Embark on a rampage of appreciation. Take yourself somewhere that pleases you: propped in bed on comfy pillows, a local coffee house with a hot beverage at your elbow, a park, an art gallery – anywhere that soothes and feeds your soul. Take a moment and breathe in that comfort, and allow yourself to feel connected to your heart. Feel grateful for each breath, for where you are right now, for the time of day, and the weather, for the goings-on around you. Let the worries of the day fade away. Say to yourself, “I choose to recommit to myself. I choose to see the joy in life.”
In this place of connection open your journal and begin with the words, “I am aware of small miracles and wonders around me everywhere. In fact right now there is… “
Sit quietly and close your eyes. Feel your heart beating. Feel the blood whizzing around your body in your veins. Feel your breathe coming into your lungs, and out again. Notice how this is automatic. Your body is healing and breathing, heart pumping, ears listening, skin feeling, mind noticing. You are a living breathing miracle. Feel how amazing you are. Let gratitude, wonder and peace flood your heart.
