Joy

One of my personal bridges of love light that never fails me is Mother Nature.

The infinite variety of life here on Grandmother Earth provides unlimited opportunities for joy, discovery, healing and wonder.

I can be feeling “blue,” as my mom used to call sadness, and a few minutes being with the spirit of nature brings me back to Joy.

We are made out of Love, which contains joy. 

My intention for our new year of 2022 is to cultivate more Joy for myself and others.

The photo above is of a porcupine in the grass, which perfectly camouflages it. My friend once taught me that if you want to spot wildlife, hold a focus toward the horizon and look for movement. That really works. I’m always elated when I can spot a deer or even tiny critters in the wild.

The Diamond light sparkles on the water always bring me joy also.

The bottom photo is of another Joy producer for me, flowers. 

For your 2022, you may want to cultivate more joy in your life. Joy helps your body be its healthiest. Joy opens up our creativity. Joy emanates from us to spread happiness to others. Joy inspires.

The following are resources that have helped me cultivate more Joy in my life:

Donna Eden’s “Radiant Circuit” online course and 10 minute energy routine.

All of Eckhart Tolle’s books and online courses.

Green Hope Farm, flower essences and website.

Mission: JOY, Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama.

The Elemental Kingdom, The Spirit of Mother Nature, Earth, Air, Water, Fire.

The Animal and Plant Kingdoms.

Singing “LuLaLuLaLi. Love, Peace, Harmony and Joy.”

Dr. & Master Sha’s  books and website.

We are all unique in the Universe. Cultivating your very own Joy space is well worth your time and effort.

Joy

Such a small word for such a big, wonderful, important feeling.

We are made out of Love, which contains joy.

Esther Hicks, Emmet Fox and Ernest Holmes, to name a few, all teach us the spiritual importance of joy. Esther has spent the last 30 years in books and workshops teaching us how important it is to feel good, to create a life we love to live. The law of attraction demonstrates, always, that like attracts like.

The Hicks material goes as far as to say that feeling good is our number one priority. They give simple instructions: meditate 15 minutes every morning. Do a “rampage of appreciation.” Write in your book of positive aspects. This process is your point of attraction for your good. Appreciation is love, and love is the most important part of attracting your good.

This simple formula, done consistently, will bring you to joy, as joy is your essential self: love.

Joy is within you, as you are love.

Is it that simple?

Yes, I believe it is.

I do feel that joy is your #1 bridge of love-light to your High Self, your higher consciousness: inspiration, intuition, peace, fun, harmony and purpose.

My higher guides always tell me that if I am feeling joy I am doing my purpose.

In the video above, the Dalai Lama and his friend Desmond Tutu are creating a Divine World mission of joy. I have watched the video several times and can’t help but smiling and feeling joy each time. It shows us how radiating joy and laughter is contagious. 

In these times we can all use more joy and humor.
