One of the ways we can align our energy is visiting memories that bring us pure joy. Being able to get ourselves to a place of complete gratitude for being able to visit certain places might be exactly what we need to shift our energy away from any energy of fear, lack, and separation. This DOESN’T mean getting into the energy of wishing you were in that place right now. When we do that, we are saying that we aren’t appreciating being where we are. That works against us. I know, the business of aligning our energy can get tricky. If you think you want to be somewhere that you’re not, pay attention to what your body does. Nope, that tight energy is one of the signs we aren’t aligned with love, abundance, and peace. What we want to do is tap into those feelings of looking out to the mountains, sea, fields, flowers, forest, etc. Wherever you have felt that feeling of AWE just from being where your feet were. Now, if you are there, go into the place of gratitude and notice how expansive that feels. Notice the feeling of pure joy. Try to remain there for three conscious breaths. I’m often brought to tears in the best of ways. Tears are my body’s reaction to feeling a feeling fully.
Today’s challenge is to make sure we have a list of local places we can go where we can feel that pure joy. It may take some exploration, but whatever it takes, DO IT! It’s funny, it took me YEARS to figure out that my area had a bunch of different nature preserves that were filled with oak hammocks and beautiful scenery. Many of the pictures you see in my posts are from local areas around my house. The one below is where I walk daily in my neighborhood. EVERY day I walk I see a bird, flower, cloud, tree, decoration, or something that brings me to a place of joy. It’s funny, I’ve been walking my neighborhood for a long time, and I thought I’ve always been observant. I started doing these daily challenges, and all the sudden I feel like I’m seeing so much more. IT is AMAZING!!! When we create space for joy, more joy appears. I love the way that works.
With Love, Gratitude, and Peace,
