Last week, I was doing training on stress release for a leading corporation in Egypt, and the topic went around to happiness, and how by continuously releasing stress, and changing our perspective on life events, we are working our way towards being more calm and happier in our lives.
After two very full days of sharing mind set tools, energy flow tools, and breathing techniques so that we lead Stress Less lives, in the last session of the workshop I discussed activities that lead to the release of serotonin in the body and that it is termed the happiness hormone.
To my surprise, one person’s eyes got really big and she asked, can we take that as a supplement?, “I mean is it available”, and she wrote down the name. In her mind that would be the whole solution.
This made me stop and think, what if she does take that pill, and her thought patterns, her assumptions, her perceptions and her reactions stayed the same. Would the pill really work?. I mean would the pill really really, really work? Would she wake up happy, and be happy?
Would a pill fill her body with a substance that would create happiness?, would she feel that warm feeling in her heart. Would she feel satisfied and grateful. Would she feel, calm and peaceful, and deep trust that all is well. Would she feel happy?
I don’t know what the pill will do, all I know is happiness is from the inside, happiness is the way we see the world, our perceptions, our thought patterns, and our beliefs. It is our trust and love of ourselves and others.
Happiness is a way of life, and we get to choose our way of life.
Happiness is a Choice.
EFT, often called Tapping is the best tool on earth to change beliefs, perceptions and thought patterns. Tapping will go to the subconscious programs that have taught you to assume, to perceive matters in a certain way, to have those meanings, and to react in a set manner. Tapping will change and delete those programs. Yes, I mean the programs in your subconscious that are driving you crazy and taking away your peace of mind. Tapping will help you choose your way of life, to create the life you deserve.
Today, I am sharing a tapping to tell your mind your are choosing happiness.
Happiness Is A Choice
On the Karate Chop Point, start tapping*
KC: Even though I find it hard to be happy, I accept and myself,
KC: Even though I find it hard to believe anyone can be happy, I love and accept myself.
KC: Even though I really find it hard for me to be happy, with the way my life is, I love and accept myself.
Tapping*on the points and repeat these words:
Its hard for me to be happy,
there are so many things that are not going well,
people are very difficult,
my life is really tough,
I have too many things in my life, I am overloaded, I am overwhelmed,
I wonder if that saying that happiness is a choice is really true,
I wonder if its possible that happiness is just a choice,
I wonder if I can see a small thing to be happy about in my life,
I wonder if there is anything in my life that i can smile about,
I wonder if my assumptions on how things are suppose to be, is part of the reason I am not happy,
i wonder if its my perceptions that are creating my beliefs that I can not be happy,
I wonder if it is possible for me to be happy a few hours a day,
I wonder if I could be happy for a full day, a few days, a week, and even more,
I wonder if I can just choose to be happy, no matter what,
I wonder if I decide that is what I am going to do, see the good, see what is the lesson in this situation, and learn to change what i can, and know what i can not change.
I choose to purposefully, change the way I look at things,
I choose to stop the assumptions, to stop the shoulds and to stop the set perceptions,
i choose to be grateful, no matter what,
i choose to be happy, no matter what,
Your Daily Happy Pill is here
you may need to tap that a few days, or weeks, till your mind starts to look for ways to be happy.
I love to hear from you, and how Choosing Happiness has changed your life.
