The one thing that opens doors to endless possibilities and opportunities is feeling good. We like ourselves better when we feel good, the universe likes us better when we feel good, and as a result life feels better too.
By feeling good we exist in a high vibrational state, transmitting at a high frequency, this is where our state of being is in alignment, and at the same wavelength as all of our desires.
When we create a thought with a desire and place it into the universe, often we come from a place of lack – a low frequency feeling. In order to receive, we must be at a place of having, feeling good, feeling ‘as if’ that thing we so badly want is already in our lives, this allows us to feel good, happy, whole – high vibrating feelings therefore emitting at a high frequency. We must feel complete as we are, before we receive the thing we are so focused on not having, a good place to start is “how would I feel if I had the thing?” and to start feeling these emotions. If having this thing would make you feel good, then embodying this feeling, this feel good energy allows us to tune into the vibration of receiving it.
It is a very simple process; if you feel good, life feels good and it will find other ways to be good, and therefore an avalanche of good will continue to manifest in your life and find more ways to add to this.
Look at moments in your life when you find yourself in this state of being, and notice what happens, how things start to flow with ease and good things seem to keep ‘popping up’. Anything and everything, hearing from an old friend or animals coming up to you, good news from work, the way people interact with you, finding a park, pay attention to the way life feels in those moments, almost as if it was all working in your favor…. !!
When we are in this state of being, not only is what we receive from life overflowing with good but as individuals what we give out also matches this high state of vibration. This is very important in our life, we cannot expect to receive something we don’t give out ourselves, so if we are in a low frequency state, life will give back to us experiences that match this frequency. If we are in a high frequency, what we receive from life will be a reflection of this.
So if feeling good allows everything else in our lives to also feel good, and the more we embody these high vibrating feelings the better version of ourselves we become, as a result we can be good, feel good, think good and receive good ?! ……. YES !!
Its all tied together !! – And it starts as simple as feeling good ourselves first and with our life exactly as it is in this very moment in time embodying all the high vibrating feelings that exist in the same frequency as our desires. Feeling anything less than, blocks our receiving lane as our desires do not exist in that low vibrating channel. We have to change that channel of energy we are tuning into to be in the same energy level as our desires, which exist in a high frequency, this is how we can have an open channel ready to receive.
Gratitude is a great way to tap into that frequency, when we are in a state of gratitude we are consumed by everything that we have, and our appreciation for it, shifting the focus from what we don’t have. This feeling of gratitude raises our vibration allowing for it to align with the energy of the universe. When we are grateful for all that is, we don’t have room to be weeping over anything else, it allows us to enter a state of being full of love and appreciation for all the things we have been blessed with on our journey.
Something I have been doing for quite a while now is making gratitude a daily habit of mine. I wake up and write down everything I am grateful for, people, places, things, experiences –everything. Hand writing these things and taking time to feel this appreciation and love you have for it makes you feel good, makes you feel blessed, and it grounds you by seeing all the good in your life as well as finding more and more things to be grateful for. Additionally, I also include those things I want to attract into my life by saying them as if they have already happened and showing my gratitude for them. It could go something like this;
- I am so grateful for my loving family
- I am so grateful I get to travel the world doing ….
- I am so grateful for my home
- I am so grateful for my new job as a…… which I love because….
There is no right or wrong way to do this; it’s all about showing your appreciation and how grateful you are for these things in your life. By being grateful you are vibrating at a high frequency and able to tune into the energy of the universe, you are on the same wavelength therefore able to receive your desires.
By feeling good, and embodying these high frequency feelings, you are able to welcome into your life all you desires with open arms.
Many Blessings, Cecelia.
"Maybe Christmas, perhaps...means a little bit more!" He puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. Maybe Christmas, he thought...doesn't come from a store. ~ Dr Seuss
The 1957 children’s classic “The Grinch who stole Christmas” hit the nail on the head, Christmas is a time of giving but there are so many ways to give. Particularly at this time of year, never underestimate the impact of a random act of Christmas kindness. Not only does it help the people receiving our kindness, it also makes us feel pretty good as well, it truly is the gift that keeps giving. Here are five reasons why I LOVE giving random acts of Christmas kindness:
1. It is usually free
2. It feels good to give kindness.
3. It feels good to receive kindness.
4. It is totally within our control to give kindness.
5. One random act of kindness contributes to a better world for all of us
So in the lead up to Christmas I like to think about a different type of Christmas countdown that I call the 12 Days of Christmas Kindness. Its starts 13th December and runs through to Christmas Eve, see if you can do a few of these, imagine if everyone did? What a Christmas that would be!
13th Write a letter to someone & post it
14th Post happy images on social media
15th Call a friend to ask about their day
16th Tape some coins to a vending machine
17th Candy cane bomb a parking lot
18th Let someone get in line ahead of you
19th Feed an expired parking meter
20th Shop small business
21st Let a car merge in front of you
22nd When you ask ‘how are you’, actively listen to the response
23rd Praise a child to their parents so they can hear you
24th Deliver chocolates to the local police or fire station
I hope that you found these ideas inspiring, there are so many variations and so many people that really need a kind gesture at this time of year. Live your best life by being kind to others.
Wishing you a multitude of Blessings & love & Christmas kindness
I would like to wish everyone a safe, happy and relaxing Christmas and at the same time send a heartfelt message to those of us who are anticipating a less than traditional holiday time with Christmas time blues
I know that that most of us are likely to share the day with family or friends and indeed, I sincerely hope that each and every one of us will enjoy the day in the company of loved ones.
However, from the perspective of an ‘older person’, I want to say that cultural and societal expectations (firmly reinforced by every aspect of a media serving to drive sales and spending), can and does put enormous pressure on those of us not having the designated ‘normal and traditional’ Christmas experience.
I guess what I am trying to say is this; a lot of people find Christmas lonesome, stressful and isolating. Some of us will spend the day on our own. Some of us will spend the day remembering loved ones who’ve passed. Those of us with young children and extended families are likely to be so busy that the end of the day will be greeted with a sigh of relief and happy exhaustion. Some of us will be on foreign soil and some of us on home turf.
The Christmas experience is as varied and nuanced as humans are. We forget that it is ok to be happy with whatever Christmas looks like. I learned that whatever circumstances you might find yourself in on Christmas day, just doing your best is more than ok, Christmas time blues are ok.
I also learned that if you are alone, and not necessarily by choice, there are many ways to have a wonderful and meaningful Christmas day. I know that it isn’t easy being up against our own expectations of how our life should look at this time. However – if you consciously choose not to measure your day against the stereotypical and give yourself the freedom to create a Christmas day that resonates just for you, it’s surprising just how enjoyable the day can be.
Viewed from the best possible perspective – being alone on Christmas Day frees’ you up to plan and do exactly what you best enjoy. If it is the company of others you most desire then there a multitude of ways to connect.
As circumstances would have it, for many years I lived far from family, so in place of the ‘traditional family’ event, we would celebrate an annual ‘Orphans Christmas’, where all of us who were single and without family would celebrate the festivities together.
If it isn’t possible to spend the day with company then you are free to absolutely indulge yourself with whatever makes your soul sing or makes your day a nurturing one.
The heat over Christmas in the southern hemisphere is legendary. An early morning swim in the sea is a magical start to Christmas morning. You’d be surprised at the number of people you’ll find at the beach enjoying a walk or swim and witnessing the sunrise. Connecting with nature is deeply comforting when feeling lonesome.
Volunteering to serve Christmas lunch at your neighbourhood homeless shelter or a local charity is hugely satisfying in both the giving and receiving, where the essence of the Christmas spirit; compassion, grace, joy and sharing is manifest where most needed.
You can spend the day watching your favourite movies and eating whatsoever takes your fancy. I have a couple of friends who are just one of nine and ten siblings respectively, who slightly dread the day because of the chaos, noise and the inevitable family squabble that results in one or another family member with their ‘nose out of joint’. I know for a fact that they often long for a quiet Christmas, without drama. It is good to remember that we humans are prone to falling into the ‘grass is greener’ dilemma, especially if we find ourselves on our own during Christmas.
Whatever you have planned and whatever the circumstances you find yourself in over Christmas, remember, you are loved and appreciated. You are a ‘child of the universe’ and your existence is as important as the sun, the stars and the moon. You don’t need to understand how or why this is so. Just know and understand your place in the architecture of the universe is meant to be and thus vitally important.
Whatever you do, I hope that you find the path to peace and harmony and I wish you all good things with all the love in my heart. If you need to talk to someone we are always here to listen.
Wishing you a truly blessed Christmas,
