The joy of being contributes so much to our health and well being that I’m not sure it will ever be fully documented as to how it works.
Can we really ever put a finger on that anyway? Does it really matter? No, just be happy or choose emotions that move you in that direction.
You know it feels better, so why not do it?
I know that I have in the past scientifically explained how the happy mood or happy face causes a series of reactions in our bodies that result in increasing our health.
See my blog on “Positive ThoughtsCreate a Happier Body” for some of the science behind joy.
This response within our bodies triggers an amazing chain of chemicals which result in an increased sense of well being which in turn results in a positive immune system boost, etc.
Therefore, “the happier you get, the happier you get.” It is really true. These clichés that are common to the “new age” community or whatever you want to call it, really do work. Try it out.
If you’re not in the best of spirits try watching a really funny movie, that’s wholesome and will just make you laugh. You will feel better.
Look at photos of laughing children; you can’t stay upset or grumpy. Start making a collection of photos that you like out of magazines, or collect them off of the net. Whenever you find yourself not in the best of spirits go through these photos.
The joy does spread, you see the joy, you feel the joy and then others catch it as well. Yea! Joy is contagious.
I realize that some people want to be angry or hold a grudge; if that is you then I hope you enjoy the emotions you are choosing to carry.
I recently worked with someone who was holding onto anger, but ready for it to shift and didn’t know how to move out of this.
There are a lot of examples of how to shift your consciousness throughout my blogs, but if you are getting stuck with a feeling or thought that you are having a challenging time shifting, please contact me.
This is an aspect of what I do and you will benefit from your own motion toward wanting more peace and joy in your life. It definitely changes physical symptoms as you release old patterns of behavior and change your attitude toward the world.
I help people remove those sneaky subconscious judgments and false beliefs that are creating misery and ill health in their life. I work remotely. Feeling old patterns leave you sets you free, symptoms disperse, diseases may go away, and living gets better.
