How to look on the bright side of life!

 How to look on the bright side of life!.

Hello there,  well the mini heatwave is well and truly over!   In fact, with the weather taking such a gloomy roll once more, it’s easy to see why so many of us become ‘down’. People may see these dark and rain filled clouds acting like a mirror, which somehow reflects how they feel inside themselves. But do not fear as guidance and cheer are hear!  The sun may not be shining, but may today’s post (below) remind you how to lift your spirits and look on the bright side of life!

 Have a great week everyone.

Do you see your glass half full or half empty? This analogy – in its simplest form- indicates one’s thoughts have a major impact on daily life. As this is so, learning to train any wayward or ‘monkey’ mind is crucial. Therefore, when a negative thought enters your consciousness, try to override it as soon as possible, by counteracting it with positive feelings … and by picturing an outcome of joy, love, and hope … away from fear, hate, and helplessness. By recognizing the moments when doubt raises its ugly head – which generates anxiety or stress – the process will become easier.

Know that the opposite becomes true only if negativity is left to take hold, like a seed which somehow grows upon the infertile ground,  it soon flourishes into a weed. This nuisance must not be allowed to grow, so attempt to pluck and remove them as soon as possible. Remember, elements of doubt can become deep-rooted, and take a greater effort to erase. They can also multiply and spread, touching and taking over others, for your concerns and worries are naturally ‘shared’ with family members or friends.

Like a common cold, the germination of a virus is quick and does not discriminate against the young or old, or any color or creed; it only wants to spread and multiply. However, the difference now though is that you understand you have the choice and real weapon in your armory of defence. 

Knowledge can be your shield, to protect and bring you strength and fortitude over many minor irritations … but even more so, when the roller-coaster of life has hit a new low. Please believe you can ride out these troughs and elevate to new heights of experience and happiness. When all is said and done, one must attempt to live in peace. 

Comprehend the inner connection to each other is eternal, and the garland of my grace will keep you away from despair  – if you let it! Though I have placed this around your neck, it actually rests over your heart … so reach for it, symbolically with both hands, to enable your mind, body, and Soul to ride those ups and downs with ease. Please enjoy this experience of so-called ‘life’, as it is freely given to you, for you to succeed in, through and to love forever. Amen”. 

PS.  In case you need another pick me up – here’s Monty Python’s – Eric Idle,  with  Always look on the bright side of life!

I am I: The In-Dweller of Your Heart  ‘Collection’

In a process known as ‘inner-dictation’, God’s wisdom and love are transcribed through and from the heart, to help us rediscover who and what we are, and why we exist too. As such, these ‘lessons’, guidelines and principles will resonate inside your Soul, and remove the veil of death, fear and anxiety to provide a clearer vision and purpose. Please be assured, during one’s sojourn, you are able to find your own path towards self-realization and become liberated into eternal bliss and peace.
