Years ago in Britain there was an advert for some sweets that challenged you not to chew them claiming it was impossible to eat one of the juicy, fruity treats without chewy it.
In Pam Grouts new book E:Cubed part of the first experiment suggests putting on some happy music first thing in the morning. I have done this but not wanting to wake my partner I sneak into the bathroom with my iPhone and some headphones I keep next the bed and dance like a loon to Pharrell Williams “Happy”.
The other day as I drove to work I heard a song on the radio that I hadn’t heard for a long time as the only time I have ever heard it was in the film “Beatlejuice” so I downloaded it to listen to any time I want.
This morning (Saturday) and my partner already gone to work. Instinct made me leap out of bed and play this song as I made the bed.
Like the sweety challenge I defy you to listen to this song and not at least tap your toe.
The other night I watched a program about Happiness in Britain. The prequel to this was they were discussing it on the local evening news and asking people to Tweet etc in their thoughts.
One person tweeted how they find it ridiculous and impossible to be happy and relaid a catalogue of negative issues they had been dealing with while another listed all the things they were grateful for like, family, home etc.
Abraham Hicks says if we give our attention to something for as little as 17 seconds its is already offering a vibration and Law of Attraction kicks in. If you give something your attention for 17 seconds and another within as little as 68 seconds it can show up in your experience.
So for the person who was obviously focused on negative issues predominately of course they were going to think happiness is ridiculous but they could turn their whole life around in 68 seconds and a happy song is a lot longer than that so we ALL have the opportunity to turn our whole lives around in the time it takes to play one track.
The other day I read something the Dalai Lama said that Happiness is an inside job. I couldn’t agree more but so many of us rely on outside situations to make us happy but when in reality we can create happiness regardless of outside appearances.
So I dare you “Jump in the Line” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One response to “Happiness is an Inside Job”
