Stoke Up Your Inner Joy Magnet!
Have you ever been so happy about something that you couldn't sit still?
Or, so joyous that you sang out loud before remembering there were other people around? I'm sure it's happened to each of us at one time or another.
I have a confession - it happens to me more than most.
Whenever I feel excited about the things I'm doing I get a spike in energy that makes me me want to move about. I feel this energy is the vibration of joy itself. I find I can't sit still, but have to get up and skip, or dance, or throw my arms up in the air and scream, 'Yay!' Anything to release the pressure of the energy inside.
I also make up little songs when I'm happy.
I have rhyming button in my head that gets tripped sometimes and out come these little jingles:
Little by little, and day by day, I know everything's gonna be okay.
Now I know I'm not going to win any music awards with these little jingles, but when the feeling of joy comes over me I have to express it. When I was in elementary school I belonged to the Glee club. We met 2x a week to practice, and put on shows at assembly. Why would they call what was essentially a choir group a Glee club? Singing always puts me in a better mood; you might even call it gleeful.
Some days it's hard to be happy
The reason I bring this up is because earlier this week I wasn't feeling so happy. Things have been a tad challenging financially and I was starting to get that sick panicky feeling in the pit of my stomach. I didn't want to allow myself to wallow in this emotion of fear and I didn't want it to take such hold of me that I couldn't shake it off. I decided I better bring up my vibration right away.
I put on some fun music and jumped onto my treadmill and did 30 minutes. I sang at the top of my lungs the whole time and I ended up feeling so good by the end I raced up the basement stairs with my arms outstretched like I'd just won an Olympic medal. Moving and singing made an enormous difference in my mood and outlook. Plus, by the end of the 1/2 hour I was smiling again - and that made me feel terrific too.
Getting dressed for work I kept singing one of my little songs over and over, and you know the day didn't turn out so bad. I got calls from two new clients and when I came home there was a check in my mailbox. It wasn't a big check, but still it was money. I know the check would have been there anyway, but I was in such a better mood that I also appreciated it much more too. Tuning into the emotion of joy made me feel more vibrant and alive, and anyone coming in contact with me could feel it too. When you feel life is good - it is.
Moving, singing, dancing and smiling raise our vibration
When you think about it, singing and dancing, or moving are things that make us feel really good. Getting a smile from someone or giving a smile also increases our happiness. These things not only lift our spirits but raise our energy or frequency levels. Each emotion has it's own frequency as well. I don't think there's anyone who would disagree that there's a marked difference between being around someone who's joyous and someone who's depressed. The frequency level that we emit has everything to do with how other people respond to us. I'm much more attracted to be around the joyous person, aren't you?
Love and joy are two of the highest emotions anyone of us can experience and the frequency they emit is much higher than emotions such as anger, or fear. No wonder we can't sit still when we're really excited about something - the vibration of joy is so much faster that it makes us want to move.
Release your inner tuning fork!
When you emit the frequency of joy you're tuning in to one of the highest the vibrations in the Universe. You lock into that frequency and move in the universal flow where all is perfection. Syncing up to this vibration opens the floodgates to your good by aligning your frequency with pure goodness the true the essence of life.
So, the next time you find your spirits sinking, or you just want to whip up some instant good remember these simple tips:
1. Put on some lively music and let the beat rev you up.
2. Start singing. Don't be shy - belt it out!
3. Or make up your own happy jingle.
2. Then move those feet and dance until you feel you're whole body is smiling.
You will feel better - and you're day will go better when you're a joy magnet. Try it and share how it affected your day.
