Happiness is a choice

“Happiness is a choice and your natural state of being. Your emotions are your guide that reveal if you are permitting or opposing your true self.” – Excerpt from “Falling in Love with your True Self” by Michael Vincent Ford

When we permit our true selves to flow naturally into our present existence then happiness follows.  Worry, doubt and sadness are the result of opposing that natural flow.  Every instance in life has a choice of how you perceive it.

Start to observe your emotions to people and situations in your life to see if you can possibly make a different choice of how you react at those times.   When you start living a happier more present life everything else will follow suit.

Mobile Vision Boards

Mobile Vision Boards

If you aren’t familiar with vision boards they are a visual layout of your goals and desires.   Vision boards are tools to remind you on a daily basis the direction you would like your life to take.  It can be a cork board with images pinned to it, a dry erase or chalk board where you can write down your desires and affirmations or it could be as simple as a notebook you keep your goals in.

A vision board can be a great tool to help align your emotions around a set of goals you would like to manifest.  I have used mine to write down my affirmations as well as keep a set of ideas visually available to me.  The issue with a vision board at home is you are usually dealing with the most stress and doubt while at work, traffic and in the outside world.  When you are home you have more control over what effects you.  When you are at work, in traffic, or on the street you are tested the most to see if you can keep a positive outlook on the direction of your life.

This is where I came up with the idea of using a mobile vision board.  There are many mobile apps that offer you affirmations, mantras, and goal reminders.  What I wanted was a way to see my vision board every time I used my phone, which to the dismay of my friends is much too often (new goal not to look at phone so much).  What I decided to do was using the concept of a photo collage we all see on Instagram and Facebook and piece in different images that represent my desires.

This collaged image can then be made the wallpaper on your phone.  I use one of my lock screen and one for my main wallpaper.  Every time I check my phone for an update I get a visual representation of where I want my life to be.  I see my passions and desires multiple times a day now.  Over time this constant reminder pushes your mood into that good feeling place of optimism we all need in this stressful world.

There are many apps you can use to make the collages.  I like Pic Stitch to create the collages and FitWallp to make it the perfect size for the phone’s wallpaper if you want to do it all on your phone.  Collage Factory on the Mac is a great app as well to create the boards on your computer.  You can play around with a few apps to get your mobile vision boards started.  Below are a few generic examples to inspire you.  Feel free to be specific and unique on your personal boards.

Rapid Manifestation

Rapid Manifestation

racing-thoughts_h-article

There are those desires we have be it for more money, a relationship, a career milestone.  These long term desires can be asked for by your desire and thought alone.  They then await their completion when you have done the work to believe them to be true, feel them as if they are here now and for when you are ready to allow them to happen.

There are then those desires that happen at a rapid pace.  That perfect day where everything seems to go right or where you head out and things happen the way you intended.  This is the concept of rapid manifestation.  These are desires that cycle from a thought/desire state to a realization in a manner of hours, minutes even seconds.

You seem to be at the right place at the right time.  Everything falls into place and what you planned for your day unfolds exactly the way you wanted it to.  This happens when you are fully connected your true self, which is certain and without doubt.

Have you noticed when this happens how great you feel, what an amazing time it was and how looking back on it the memories are vivid and fulfilling?  That is because you feeling a passion or a desire and trusting it completely causes it to manifest just as quickly.

Say you go a trip and want to see certain sites and be with certain people and it happens exactly as you wanted.  You go out on this trip and you are 100% sure these are the activities you want to complete and you go into them knowing they will happen and because you are so certain of them you enjoy them without worry or doubt.  It can be as simple as going to the beach and knowing you want to swim in the ocean.  You don’t doubt you can go at 1pm to the beach and be in the ocean within a few minutes of laying your towel out.  That certainty and that desire and you acting on your desire is you fully connected to your true self.

Doubt and worry if the weather will be good, will the water be warm, will I find parking would deter  you from having that perfect day at the beach.  Imagine using that same certainty for your bigger desires believing they can happen as easily as you walking from your towel to the water to swim?  Approach that desire with the certainty that it is possible just the same as a smaller desire.  When you get to that point you will see the rapid manifestation of desires being completed as fast as you can create them as thoughts.

Passion is the fuel for the desire and certainty is the vehicle to take you to the destination which is the manifestation point.  If your desire is strong enough for action the method appears.  Only when you are ready to allow the completion of your desire does the method of action become available.

The universe provides the means for it to happen and your action is the process of you responding to your desires with the intention of completion.

From nothing everything will appear.

From nothing everything will appear.

We all hear of living in the present.  But what is the present?  Is it just seeing what is around you, being aware of your body and self?  The concept of allowing has really influenced me lately.  Allowing is born of no resistance.  Sometimes we need to allow nothing so that something bigger than your thoughts could form can be allowed into your consciousness.

Every moment that is not the present moment which can include even a few moments ago is dwelling.  Your current situation might seem present but it is made of past worry and future yearning.

Let go and allow the present to be born of nothing and from nothing everything will appear.
