To live in happiness you want to accomplish these major of steps: learn how to communicate with your Higher Self, your Spirit; change your habits and actually shift to a new perspective on how to live each day in happiness.
What comes next? How do you go from happiness to create the connection with the Life Force, with God – the one process that makes the difference between struggle and the lack thereof.
The simple answer is stay 100% present with any task at hand. You focus on the here and now. To feel bad you must either be in your past pain or in your future anticipating of pain.
For instance, when you talk with someone, in that moment that person is the single most important person in the world. You pay attention to the words. You hear the gaps between their words. You notice their body language. You let go of thoughts of what else you could be doing. You stop all thoughts of other activities like making grocery lists and devote 100% of your attention to him or her.
Many of us multitask and we seem to be pretty good at simultaneously doing a number of tasks adequately or even well. Note the word, seem.
You may feel successful doing more than one task at a time. I know I always thought I did all of them really well. Then I thought about what was going on in my brain.
I was using more energy than I realized, energy that needs to be replaced each night with deep sleep. Failure to replace that energy leads to slow deterioration of one’s health and ultimately to death. The medical world calls it aging. I call it failure to replace your daily energy.
The net effect is overdrawing on your energy bank account. The fees build up until they smother you!
In addition, with all that noise in your brain and mind, paying attention to so many unrelated details, there is too much noise to hear your Higher Self communicating with you – as it constantly does.
How do you resolve both issues?
You create the habit of focusing on one item at a time. As you do so your ability to stay in the present and live in the now will increase. With no effort you will hear your Spirit talk with you.
You will remember you are never alone. You remember your actions are in sync with what your Spirit tells you. You never act alone. That deep connection motivates you to continue to live in the present plugged in and turned on to the Truth that we are all connected.
You will hear your Spirit talk to you so clearly you will automatically respond with appropriate actions
