Choose happiness and ye will be a joyous radiant happy person. William James said the greatest discovery of the 19th century was the power of the subconscious mind touched by faith. If one is facing the deepest pits of despair in the darkest of times in the history of forever, it is the power of one’s thoughts that commands the sub-conscious with a choice. You will it and the whole of you will do your bidding. The very best thing under those circumstances is to choose happiness. Only then will happier things begin to manifest for you.
10 Practices To Choose Happiness
1) Say “I choose happiness”, as you awaken in the morning.
The sub-conscious scientists say is all powerful and will command your whole body and mind to behave in a specific way as directed. So, direct yourself into happiness by telling yourself about the joyous, radiant, happy person you are!
2) Happiness is a habit of giving thanks.
Develop the habit of giving thanks for everything in your daily life. Habits are formed into a repeated set of behaviours. Sadness can be broken and literally exchanged for happiness. Keep reminding yourself of happy moments and happy things.
3) Best pure nutrition.
We are what we eat. Stop the damn drugs…yes, I literally mean damn them. Nutritious food and purest water come first. Avoid all those chemical fertilisers and genetically engineered foods. In fact, even sunshine for appropriate periods are great ways to get the right amount of the sunshine vitamin. All agricultural societies worship the sun. Agriculture is the basis of all good nutrition.
4) Become a part of a happy group of friends.
Put another way. Be a part of a mastermind. When groups of like minded friends get together, spirits are lifted and everyone has a great time. Problems are so often easily dispensed with. Great friends help each other. Acting together is power. There is power in manifesting happiness.
5) Create your dreams
Make a dream book, a dream board or a treasure box. Put symbols or pictures of your dreams into them. Make sure they mean something powerful to you that you aspire toward. These are dreams that thinking about makes you happy. Keep looking at and replenishing them as active reminders as you build happiness.
6) Endeavour toward the income source or work that you love.
This is such a massive source of pride and joy for the self but not ego. This is the confirmation that one can accomplish anything. But do it one step up at a time. Foundations always need to be built. The stronger you build your foundation, the more massive your building.
7) Honour your family and friends.
They are your immediate supporting society. When their approval of you reaches your sub-conscious, you are said to be in synch. You are resonating in like vibrations like bells ringing in harmony and resonance. The result is an immensely louder voice.
8) Meditate in happiness as a daily ritual.
Happiness is the harvest of the quiet mind. The quiet mind begins with happiness as its objective. Then in confidence, simply quiet your mind in the deepest meditation. Upon awakening, your awareness is that of a deep, warm and powerful person.
9) Exercise in the most effective way for your body.
A strong and healthy body is a virtue of happiness. When you feel better, you feel happier. When you feel stronger you feel happier. Therefore make sure you find a way to exercise that takes as short a time as possible, yet is more effective than any other exercise for you. Tip: do a series of workouts that match your way of life and your body type. Match it with the right frame of mind and nutrition. Great coaches are also a plus.
10) Ask what you can do for the world by developing your true calling.
Ultimately, our bodies go to the grave. But our legacies live on for others to follow. Our energies of soul will be sent into the ether and spread into the knowledge that is the universe. The greatest of joy is doing this. You can be someone who accomplishes the greatest feats but a truly happy person does what he desires and becomes that desire.
