This is me in my happy place. I prescribe stained glass time to myself when I've been in my head too long. The coloured glass does amazing things for my state of mind and I love when one of my windows is completed and ready to hang.
Ok, I am sooo excited to share this with you!
Someone recently asked me "what comes easily for you?" I could have responded with anything from cooking to driving but what came out kind of surprised me.
My response was "Joy". Believe it or not, Joy is basically my normal state. Lots of times I actually play it down so I don't make other people feel uncomfortable. Funny that I do that because it's not like Joy just happens to me, I'm just really well practiced at it. I'm good at Joy and as a result it's my most natural state.
Second in this conversation was the question "what can you do with that skill?" My first thought was, I wish I could bottle joy and give it to people but how. After letting that percolate in the magical recesses of my brain, I suddenly had the realization that I confess should have been more obvious.
At this point, I'm not sure how to bottle Joy, but I know how we can reconnect the Radiant Circuits that turn on our body's ability to bring Joy to the surface. How could I forget that? Anyway, it's so clear to me that now is the time to do this work.
How do you know you can benefit from this?
If you feel:
- flat, blah, uninspired
- depressed, hopeless
- body is not regulating or healing
- unrested, moody
- stuck, frustrated
When your Radiant Circuits are working well...
You feel more:
- bright and shiny
So, what are some ways we can get these circuits juiced up and functioning well again?
Sooooo many ways!
walk barefoot on the earth
breathe and enjoy
get crafting, make art
stretch, move, walk, do yoga, jump on the trampoline, roll down a grassy hill
get a massage
hugs, long squeezy yummy hugs
watch silly movies
speak from your heart
get out in nature, hug trees (for real!)
do less of what you don't enjoy!
clean your room, paint your walls or your nails
eat great food
get a pet you love
travel to new and exciting places
host a party with great friends
wear funky socks that make you smile
There are actually exercises you can do to specifically target each of the Radiant Circuits. Donna Eden has a wealth of information on this subject and there are lots of great videos available online as well. Check out www.innersource.net to get started.
Remember, we are designed for Joy! Our bodies and beings are designed for resilience and vibrant living. To use a car metaphor, your body is a vehicle that when fed premium fuels, given regular maintenance, allowed to cool/warm up, driven according to spec and condition will last a good long time. Please don't tell my husband I just said all that! It's all true, but shh!
Here's to abundant Joy and vibrant living my friends!
