Thank God For Everything. Mastery Newsletter May 16, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

We had our usual Sunday laughter session in Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, BC. Canada

 

A new laugher, Mr. M, beat his prostate cancer diagnosis.

 

He thanked God for it, knowing that God only provides what we need. He knew it was for a reason.

 

He laughed about it…lots.

 

It helped him heal it.

 

He kept laughing. The hospital staff asked him to come back and help others who were so sad about their cancer.

 

Laughter Yoga continues to amaze me with all the wonderful stories of healing.

 

Check out a Laughter Yoga session in your neighbourhood.

Forgiving the Unforgivable. Mastery Newsletter May 2, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

“So, why should you forgive?

 

Because it gives you true freedom to help create positive change, be in love and stay in love with others and with yourself. You learn to act from a place of empathy, rather than one filled with anger, hate, resentment, revenge, and distrust. In forgiveness, the Elders remind us, we are all one — our spirit is tied to the spirit of the other; it is fundamental to our capacity to be healthy and whole human beings…

 

Forgiveness then becomes an empowering act of spiritual alchemy, a powerful medicine transforming the hurt into a source of deeper compassion and relationship with oneself and others in the hoop of life.”

 

-Dr. Anita L. Sanchez, author of The Four Sacred Gifts. Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times

 

From the age of four to the age of thirteen, her father sexually abused her. She healed herself through this powerful gift…The Power to Forgive the Unforgivable.

Power Blocks to Unleash Your Productivity. Mastery Newsletter April 27, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Too many things to do…

 

Pulled this way and that…

 

Overwhelming TO DO list…

 

How can I wrestle this list to a manageable size?

 

Power Blocks to the rescue.

 

Research shows us that multi-tasking doesn’t work (google it J).

 

Worse, when we are pulled away from a task, it takes time to get the mind back on track.

 

Answering a phone call or an email will do it.

 

My Mastermind Group have been using this idea and all of us agree, it has made us much more productive.

 

It’s quite simple. And flexible.

 

Here’s how I do it.

 

9.00 comes and I dive into a project. (recently I have been getting ready to launch a new online service.)

 

No distraction is allowed to pull me out. No phone calls, no emails, NO FACEBOOK!!! Or any other “social media!”

 

I work for 45 minutes, precisely.

 

At 9.45, I stop, get up, get a glass of water or tea, possibly check my FACEBOOK, aargh…J

 

At 10.00 PRECISELY! I get back into the project for another 45 minutes.

 

I suppose one could use 30 minute blocks. 45 has worked well, although I have done 30 and sometimes 60 minutes.

 

It is important to get one’s face out of the project though.

 

In 3 hours, all of my Mastermind group report that we got so much more done.

 

It is simple. It is powerful. It addresses the human need for variety.

 

We just can’t stay totally focused for great lengths of time.

 

Unless of course we find ourselves IN THE FLOW…

 

But that is a topic for another time.

 

Let me know how it goes for you.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Add Ten Years To Your Life. Mastery Newsletter April 11, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

                         In Four Easy Steps and Just Minutes a Day, You Too Can Add Ten Good Years to Your Life.

And when I say “Easy Steps” I mean just that. Four simple-to-do actions that take a few minutes and are PROVEN to add years to your life. These Four Easy Steps are included in the free email course:

                                         108 Tips for More Joy, Energy and Health.

Go to the right of this page and sign up for the course, which includes the video

“Feel Authentic Joy…Within Minutes…Even When Unhappy.” http://joyenergyandhealth.com

This is not about making big changes in your lifestyle, starting heavy duty exercise programs or even making huge changes in diet. Instead these four actions build resiliency.  And they build it in four areas of your life. With these four minutes-a-day actions (you can’t even call them exercises because they take so little effort), you will become more physically, mentally, emotionally and socially resilient…GUARANTEED.

More than 1,000 peer reviewed studies show that you can add ten years to your life by boosting four types of resiliency: physical, mental, emotional and social. And ANYONE can do this. As I said, these are ACTIONS, not exercises. They take little physical effort, so even people with physical disabilities can do them.

Get the most results with the least effort: That is the focus of the 108 Tips for More Joy, Energy and Health. My name is Matti Anttila. I am a health, fitness and longevity Scout. What I do is scout out the most effective pathways for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual growth. I have tested out many dead-ends and shortcuts that DON’T work…so you don’t have to.

You are busy. I know this without having to ask you. It’s a common thing in the modern world. How many times have you started an exercise program and had to give it up because there just wasn’t enough time? Or, have you made a commitment to eat healthier food and found yourself gulping down some fast food? It happens to all of us.

The best intentions sometimes aren’t enough BECAUSE OF THE PRESSURE ON OUR TIME. Wouldn’t it be nice to find actions we can take that get the job done in the shortest possible time? Adding ten years to your life is something you can do in just minutes a day. AND it’s just four of 108 easy-to-do steps that can improve and BALANCE your life. I have tested the 108 steps. Some of them are simple and take only a few moments. Others, quite frankly, take a little more effort. BUT, If I can do them, so can you.

 

I know what you’re thinking. “108 steps? That sounds overwhelming.”  The good news is each step only takes a few moments and they build on each other and compound their benefits as you integrate them into your life.

 

The Bad News? It takes some discipline.

 

The Good News? It only takes a LITTLE discipline.

 

The Great News?  WE FOCUS THAT SMALL AMOUNT OF DISCIPLINE TO BUILD A HABIT. You and I are creatures of habit. Habits run automatically. You could say our habits RUN US.

All we need to do is exert SOME discipline to install a new habit. Once something is a habit, it is easy to keep it going. ESPECIALLY if you are getting great benefits and WANT to keep getting the benefits.

Here’s what you can expect with The 108 Tips for More Joy, Energy and Health.

The Four Easy Steps to Add Ten Years to Your Life are included in Tips 92 to 95.

A Cancer Prevention Action That is as Simple as Breathing. A two-time Nobel Prize Winner reveals all in Tip # 9.

Eat this food which is scientifically proven to help prevent cancer. Tip # 84.

Five simple actions that can make you happier. Tips 17 to 21.

How being happy right now can make success easier. Tips 65 to 69.

How to buy happiness. Yes, happiness CAN be bought, but not in the way you are probably thinking. Tip # 71.

How many friends is the right number to make you the happiest? See tip # 73.

☼ How to fight off cold and flus without vaccines. Tip # 87.

Get rid of Colds and Flus Faster. A one minute action revealed in tip # 90.

Flush out radioactive isotopes from your body. The nuclear accidents around the world, Fukushima, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, have added to our “background” radiation. Here is one simple daily action to help flush radioactive isotopes from your body (And your family’s). Tip # 85.

Get the love you need. We need many types of love. Here’s how to get them all. Tips 74 to 83.

Feel Good More of the Time. Tip #1 shows how to expand those moments of feeling good into minutes, hours, days, months and even years.

More Energy and Easier Weight Loss by Breaking This Food Addiction. Many of us are addicted to a specific food substance and no, it is not actually white sugar (sucrose). Many who have done this 14 day protocol found more energy and even found their ideal weight without dieting. Tip # 6.

Feel Lighter by “Detoxing” Your Body. “Detoxing” is controversial. Some swear by it. Others pooh-pooh it as hocus-pocus. Read both sides of the argument. What modern medicine says and what the 3,000 year old systems of healing from China, India and Tibet have to say about it. A simple-to-do detox is included. Tip # 23.

Clear up emotions that may be at the root of dis-ease. Emotions are said to be “upstream” from physical ailments. Clear up the emotions and your physical symptoms may just drop away on their own. In the 1800s, Edward Bach made his name by devising Bach Flower Remedies for doing just that. Thousands of years before Bach, the Mayan Indiand of Meso-America had similar solutions for clearing up the emotions. Tip # 24 shows how to do it in literally seconds a day.

“Electromagnetic pollution” is said to be one of the modern day causes of dis-ease. Cell phone towers, “smart” meters and other new technologies are said to increase the load of electromagnetic pollution in our bodies. How you can have all that pass you by instead of passing through your body. Tip # 14.

Your home is a “toxic soup” of modern day chemicals and endocrine disruptors. This can wreak havoc with your hormones. Plastics that mimic estrogen are said to “feminize”men. Modern chemistry has brought us many miracles. Modern chemistry also has us living in a “toxic soup” inside our own homes. I admit these tips CAN take some more work, but the pay-off is a home much safer for you and your family. Tips 27 to 36.

Taking Calcium Supplements can Lead to Brittle Bones and Even to Death! The “Death by Calcium” tip is a mind blower for many. We have been taught to take calcium for osteoporosis. Tip # 26 shows what to do instead.

Model what these “primitive” societies do and you too could find a healthy, long and productive life. In the 1930s an American dentist became so disgusted with the state of children’s’ teeth that he traveled with world searching for solutions, He found 14 so called “primitive” societies with zero cavities. Coincidentally, all those groups had no crime, no police, no jails, no judges. They didn’t need them. They also lived healthy, vital and productive lives right into their 90s and beyond. Tip # 37 lays out their stories and how we can apply the same ideas in today’s modern world.

“Fire Your Dentist.” Is it possible? In tips 38 to 54, you will find all the information on how oral health is linked to overall health. Cavities and gum disease are rampant. These tips cover everything from how to cure tooth decay with food to mercury fillings to why not to use fluoride to root canals and many stops in between. These tips alone can change your life and reduce the trips to the dentist.

How Giving Gifts Can Help Heal Dis-ease. Gifit giving has eased symptoms of conditions like Multiple Sclerosis and other immune system diseases. Tip # 29.

Why pampering yourself is critical to success. Tip # 72.

☼  Get Your Mind and Body on the Same Page. Sometimes your mind may say one thing and your body says something else. Tips 58 to 64 deal with mind-body harmony.

How to Make Wiser Decisions. Sometimes we are faced with making a big decision in our lives. Here is a simple way to access our inner wisdom to choose wisely. Tip # 3.

Release the “Number One Killer,” Stress, From Your Life. Meditation is one of the great stress relievers. But how do you do it and how do you know you are doing it right? Tip #7 has a simple way to ensure you are on the right path, again in minutes a day.

How to stay young by keeping your brain active. No, it’s not crossword puzzles! Tip # 15 shows you what to do instead.

Learn a Language in Days. Tip # 15 shows how.

Improve Your Memory as You Age. Many fear losing their memories in older age. But, you are actually hardwired to have a BETTER memory in older age. Tip # 22 shows what to do.

Better Sleep. See Tip # 55 for an action plan.

A Fifteen Second “Solution” for All Dis-ease. There is an epidemic of “Silent Inflammation.” Silent because you can’t feel it. But many researchers point to this silent inflammation as being at the root of all dis-ease. This fifteen second solution may help prevent the dis-eases of modern life from cancer, diabetes, heart disease on down. Tip # 56 shows you how.

Tap into the wisdom of our elders. Tip #91 shows you what five lessons are the most important from those on their death beds.

P.S. You may be asking, why is this all free? You may not have seen any book, course or program that covers so much territory. Many books, courses and programs charge big bucks for a fraction of what of what is in the 108 Tips for More Joy, Energy and Health.

I ask myself that every day. Why am I giving away a lifetime of study and research? Why have I spent decades going down many dead-ends and chosen NOT to get paid to share the life changing results?

I don’t know. I guess maybe I am just too lazy to package it all into a “sale-sy” type product. I may very well do that. In fact, now that I am thinking about it, I will probably break all this information down into smaller chunks and sell them separately. For now, you can take advantage of my laziness and have it ALL at no cost. But if I were you, I would do it NOW…before I change my mind.

Sugar is Toxic. Mastery Newsletter April 4, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

More than we may know.

 

From The Great American Health Hoax by Raymond Francis.

 

“If you care about your health, get the sugar out of your life. Sugar either causes or contributes to every imaginable disease, from the common cold to cancer to Alzheimer’s. It is a dangerous metabolic poison that makes you old and sick. Every time you consume sugar, you are doing damage to your body…

 

Dr. Linus Pauling, a chemist and twice Nobel Laureate, once said, ‘Sugar is the most hazardous foodstuff in the American diet.’…

 

Here is some of what sugar does:

  • Damages energy production
  • Causes inflammation
  • Upsets normal Ph
  • Interferes with digestion
  • Throws hormonal balance into chaos
  • Causes platelet stickiness
  • Causes overweight

 

Sugar is more damaging to health than alcohol or tobacco…

 

Sugar has been found to be more addictive than heroin…

 

The upshot is that our modern diet is literally supercharged with fructose, and we are seeing the consequences in our skyrocketing rates of chronic and degenerative disease. If you want to stay biologically young, maintain a healthy weight, and radically reduce your risk or diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, then you must eliminate all refined sugars from your diet and keep your daily consumption of fructose to a minimum. Limit your consumption to 25 grams or less per day. An average orange has about 6 grams, a banana 7 grams, and an apple 10 grams…

 

A very inconvenient truth is that sugar is highly addictive and destructive. However, knowing this is like pulling back the curtain on the great mystery of why so many in our society are sick, suffering, and dying prematurely. You do not have to be one of them. If you don’t want to make yourself old and sick, avoid sugar.”

 

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Giving: Great Secret to Prosperity. Mastery Newsletter March 21, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

We have grown stingy. To our detriment.

 

It seems we want something in return. Quid pro quo. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.

 

Is this based on the illusion that there is a lack of abundance in the world?

 

That there is only so much of anything to go around?

 

Only so much money, resources, love…

 

Therefore I must have a return on my expenditure.

 

What if?

 

What if the universe is absolutely abundant? What if there is no shortage of anything?

 

What if there is lots of money to go around? A host of resources available to us?

 

An infinity of love?

 

Would that change the way we operate? The way we view giving?

 

What if…the more we give, openly, freely, from the heart, the more the universe gives back to us?

 

I am finding this to be the case.

 

But not in the way I thought. I am learning how to give without any expectation of return.

 

And it doesn’t come back in the way I expected.

 

But I AM finding doors opening all the time.

 

Inspiration and solutions in business and personal life.

 

It seems like a bit of a trick…

 

The giving has to be without expectation.

 

How can I do that when I have, even if only subconsciously, SOME expectation of my life improving as a result.

 

Therein lies the rub.

 

Work in progress.

 

What is your experience of this?

What is Your Vibratory Signature? Mastery Newsletter March 7, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

There is an energetic stamp behind all our actions.

 

This is what is first felt by others.

 

In searching for our purpose, passion and occupation in this world, there is a more potent pursuit.

 

And that is…who we are becoming in each moment.

 

The vibratory signature behind all that we do has the most impact.

 

If we view our lives as a creation of a work of art, the questions we ask can be:

 

How can I serve you who is in front of me now?

 

Do you feel understood?

 

What is your rapture, your passion, what turns your on?

 

What do you need to fully express yourself?

 

How can I serve your highest self?

 

Artful question such as these penetrate our surface concerns. They take us into the deeper quest that is in our soul’s code.

 

Each of us has a part to play in the grand scheme of things.

 

Like a choir, each voice contributes to the whole grand swelling of the song of our lives.

 

Each of our voices is an essential note in the great choir of being.

 

Your voice is a creative act of devotion to that which is creating us.

 

^^

This article inspired by Toko-pa Turner from her book Belonging. Remembering Ourselves Home.

Unintended Consequences. Mastery Newsletter February 28, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

So I got myself an old-fashioned safety razor. The blade that goes in there is all metal so it decomposes in nature much more rapidly than plastic.

 

I thought I was being environmentally conscious and all. Keeping some plastic out of the landfills.

 

Not to be. When I ordered 100 blades off the internet they came fast and were inexpensive, but…

 

They came in packages of 5…wait for it…in a plastic dispenser.

 

And the dispenser was wrapped in plastic foil.

 

Aargh. Sigh…

 

Just as much plastic, if not more, as my previous razor.

 

What’s a guy to do?

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

“I’m Just Not a Morning Person.” Mastery Newsletter February 21, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

 

Bull-tootie.

 

And anyone can learn the habits.

 

Morning people are more productive.

 

Here’s the research:

 

http://www.artsci.utoronto.ca/main/newsitems/morning-people-happier

 

You do want to be more productive, do you not?

 

First step:

 

Commit. Otherwise it is just a wish.

Are you really wiling to do what it takes? Most people who feel defeated by the alarm clock only “tried” to wake up earlier; they didn’t commit.

 

 

Get to bed earlier. We all need sleep. 7-8 hours seems to be the agreement from research.

 

Don’t “try” to go to bed earlier, just go to bed earlier. Don’t “try” to turn your devices off one hour before bed, just turn them off.

 

 

Stop Saying You’re Not a Morning Person

Watch how you talk to yourself and to others. If you’ve made it part of your identity you’ll have a harder time breaking free from your self-imposed limitations.

 

Say “I’m learning to become a person who makes the most of his/her mornings.”

 

 

Clarify your motivation and put it down in writing.

 

There is something powerful about putting pen to paper. Seize that power.

 

 

Give thanks when you wake up.

 

For all your blessings. “This is a great day. I have never seen this day before.”

 

 

Speak your power.

 

Say: I’m awake, I’m alive, I feel great!”

 

Keep saying it as you get going until you feel it in your bones.

 

 

Say Your Bedtime Affirmations

 

I say: “How is it so easy for me to have a restful sleep and wake up refreshed?”

 

Make up your own.

 

Drink a Cup of Warm Water

 

You can add some lemon to boost your digestion.

 

 

Prioritize your first hour

 

Create a routine around something you’ll be excited to do.

 

Brian Tracy attributes his success to having a reading period first thing.

 

Some meditate, do yoga or tai chi.

 

Create your own empowering morning routine.

 

Be Consistent!

The more you reinforce your morning habits, the more you’ll grow to love them. A key step to any habit is regularity, so try to keep it up, even on the weekends and while you travel.

 

 

If you don’t succeed, ever so gently, start again.

 

Habits may take time to instill. Be easy on yourself.

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Better Sleeps with Laughter. Mastery Newsletter February 16, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Laughter Yoga for Better Sleeps.

A few nights ago, I discovered another use/benefit to Laughter Yoga. We had a great evening with friends over for din-dins and then watched the Olympics opening ceremony and the qualifiers for the snowboarders. (wow…amazing what they do!).

Connecting with friends is always awesome. After I put down my nightly reading book and settling in to go to sleep, I spontaneously started laughing.

As you may know, us Laughter Yoga types can and often do laugh for no reason. There was no reason for me to laugh, but it felt great so I continued on. It was only about 5 minutes or so but I fell asleep quite readily. When I awoke I felt refreshed.

Mental note to myself: must do this more often.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Loving What Is Resolution. Mastery Newsletter February 3, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Often New Year’s resolutions reflect a discomfort with what is. Wanting a change because we feel uncomfortable or dissatisfied with the present situation.

 

What if…

Life is already perfect the way it is.

 

What if…

We accept fully our situation as it is.

 

This does not mean stagnation. It does not mean not wanting to improve.

 

It means only that what we have is a reflection of who we are at this moment.

 

It means that life or the universe is showing to us or reflecting to us exactly who we are.

 

This sort of acceptance of what is a great starting point for making improvements.

 

Rather than being dissatisfied, how about deeply appreciating everything just as it is now?

 

From that deep appreciation we can organically grow. From this place of gratitude for our many blessings, we can expand our lives.

 

Being thankful for all that we have, we can give service to others as a way to show our thankfulness.

 

As a prayer to connect with others and with life.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

 

 

Matti Anttila

A Goal or a Wish? Mastery Newsletter January 26, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health

A speaker asks his audience to stand up if they have read Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich.

 

As this is a self development workshop, almost everyone stands up.

 

Then…he asks them to remain standing if they are doing the recommended exercise from page 36.

 

Almost everyone sits down.

 

They read the book but did not do what the book said you must to “think and grow rich.”

 

What were they thinking?

 

That you just read the book and magically your wishes would come true? Without having to actually do anything? Without taking action?

 

I sheepishly admit that I read the book many moons ago and also did not do the exercise.

 

The exercise asks that you fix a specific amount of money you want and then set a timeline for it.

 

Without a specific amount of money and a specific time, it is not a goal. It is a wish.

 

Many New Year’s resolutions fall into the wish category.

 

What about you?

 

Do your goals have a specific time to be completed?

 

 

 

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Loving Yourself is the Best Resolution. Mastery Newsletter January 19, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

New Year’s resolutions are all very fine and dandy.

 

Why do so many of them fall by the wayside?

 

Could it be that the first ingredient for successful goal setting is missing?

 

The first thing to lay a foundation for all else is…loving ourselves.

 

Without that, all is lost basically.

 

That may sound over dramatic. Let me lay out the rationale and logic.

 

At one extreme, if we loathe ourselves, really hate who we are and what we do, we can easily sabotage ourselves.

 

My subconscious beliefs about how worthy I am can cause actions and behaviours that go against the very goals I am consciously trying to reach.

 

No one can love you more than you love yourself.

 

If you want to receive love, first give it to yourself. The road to your inner core where you want to be acknowledged, nourished and loved has to be open.

 

Otherwise any love is deflected and can’t get through.

 

Simple concept. You may or may not believe this.

 

However, I challenge you to put it to the test.

 

Every morning, use Louise Hay’s self love process.

 

Look in the mirror into your eyes and say: “I love you. I really love you.” Say it for at least 20 seconds.

 

Note what happens. How you feel.

 

That may give you a sense of how much love you are allowing through to your inner core. Both from yourself and from others.

 

My experience: Very uncomfortable at first. Then it became easier.

 

I find more sense of being loved as a result.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

(And don’t beat yourself up if and when your New Year’s resolutions fall by the wayside. Ha ha.)

Joy is a Worthy Resolution. Mastery Newsletter January 10, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

How are your resolutions for this year going?

 

Congratulations if you are still on track.

 

Many have already fallen off.

 

My friend George at my Toastmasters Club is a regular at the gym.

 

He says every year there is a flurry of activity as those who resolved to get fit join in. After about six weeks, most of them are gone again.

 

 

I have maintained that joy, fun and fulfillment are worthy resolutions.

 

Let’s look at joy.

 

“The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”

-Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

 

 

What do we do to achieve happiness?

 

We strive and struggle to achieve “goals,” thinking that once we achieve one or more of them (or more likely many, many of them), then and only then we can relax and feel good

 

The problem? If and when we reach a goal, the feeling of accomplishment may not last long and then…it’s on to another goal. Seems like a treadmill to me.

 

Two Great Secrets:

 

1) There is a shortcut to feeling good and it doesn’t depend on getting any “stuff,” and

 

2) When we choose to feel good first, it’s easier to get “stuff.”

 

Over to you. Your thoughts?

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Joy, Fun, Fullfilment. Worthy Resolutions. Mastery Newsletter January 3, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Most New Year’s Resolution start out with intention, clarity, purpose and focus.

 

Why do so many get derailed?

 

Perhaps one or more of these reasons:

 

Life gets busy.

 

Life gets in the way.

 

The goals were not in alignment with our higher selves.

 

How to Align our Goals with Our Higher Selves

 

Ask: What do I REALLY want?

 

At the root of all desires, goals and intentions is what?

 

The desire to be happy?

 

More to the point: to be joyous?

 

Bull’s eye: to be fulfilled?

 

What if?

 

Instead of outer goals…more money, better job, newer car,etc…

 

What if?

We focused on inner goals?

 

Allowing our inner joy out to play and have fun in the outer world.

 

Exploring ways to be more fulfilled?

 

What if?

 

We have more joy, fun and fulfillment, would we feel happier as a result?

 

Would we also find it easier to achieve our outer goals?

 

Hmm.

 

Dr. Joe Vitale said this:

“Joy and bliss may seem frivolous to some but the reality is when we are having fun is when we can be the most productive in our chosen field.”

 

What can we do (or not do) to have more joy, fun and fulfillment in our daily lives?

 

Over to you.

Happiness is Overrated. Mastery Newsletter December 13, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Try too hard to attain happiness…it remains elusive.

 

“The Pursuit of Happiness” is enshrined in the American Constitution.

 

Was that a mistake made by the founding fathers of America?

 

Possibly.

 

On the one hand, the Dalai Lama says it is up to us to find how to be happy.

 

On the other hand, you may have noticed that many of our efforts to reach that desired state often fall short.

 

Why is that?

 

Perhaps because happiness is meant to be a by-product, as it were, of other efforts.

 

For example, it is said that it is better to give than receive. One recent study showed that giving Christmas presents produces more joy than receiving them.

 

Joseph Campbell (if you don’t know the name, Google is your friend) said what we really want is the experience of being fully alive.

 

I would call that “fulfillment.”

 

What we want more deeply than happiness if the feeling of living a full life. Of being fulfilled.

 

How do we do that?

 

Service to others.

 

As easy as that.

 

Stopping self-centredness. Not focusing on what We want. Not on pleasures, but on work.

 

Not on chasing the dream, but on easing the pain a friend has.

 

Not on making more money to buy the next goal. But on bending down and helping a child.

 

Not on a flashy new car. But calling a family member to see how they are doing.

 

Not on getting a promotion, but smiling at strangers and saying hello.

 

Finding that inner smile that brightens someone’s day.

 

Try it. What have you to lose by smiling?

Laughter Yoga Prevented a Car Accident. Mastery Newsletter December 6, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

I am heading into the intersection at normal speed. All of a sudden the car that was waiting in the left turn lane opposite pulls out, cuts right in front of me.

 

I slam on the brakes. Smoke comes from my tires as my car slides toward the left side of the car turning in front of me.

 

I come to a full stop, missing the car by mere inches.

 

Earlier, I had done what I normally do. I laughed for the first 10-15 minutes as I started my holiday shopping drive.

 

I believe that created a sense of calm and ease that allowed my to be a touch quicker getting my foot to the brake.

 

What happened next is the real difference.

 

In my pre Laughter Yoga days, I would have been steaming, angry, raging and perhaps even letting loose some blue language.

 

After 9 years of regular Laughter Yoga, usually every day, my reaction was different.

 

I laughed out loud.

 

You can imagine the adrenalin and cortisol were free flowing…the stress hormones.

 

I kept laughing for about 5 minutes. I was grateful there was no accident.

 

This was truly letting go. I kept laughing until there was no trace of any emotion around the incident. It took about 5 minutes.

 

I paused a few times. Each time, some emotions arose, I restarted laughing.

 

About 5 minutes was all it took to clear away all traces of emotional reaction to it.

 

I felt blessed and looked after.

 

I have never doubted the many benefits of Laughter Yoga.

 

Another great example of it occurred in this incident.

 

This inspires my to keep going and to keep spreading the joy and other benefits of Laughter Yoga.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

The Light Inside Us. Mastery Newsletter November 29, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

We are taught that light emanates from the sun, bounces off external objects and into our eyes. And that is how we see.

 

The blind World War II French resistance fighter Jacques Lusseyran discovered otherwise.

 

He found we have the light inside us.

 

Lusseyran went blind in a freak accident at the age of 8.

 

The Germans occupied France in 1940 when Lusseyran was only 16. The following year, he created a resistance group. It grew to over 600 members.

 

Lusseyran was charged with interviewing prospective members to weed out any potential spies. His heightened senses seemed to give him extra powers of perception.

 

Eventually the group merged with a well connected and official resistance group, Defence de la France.

 

Their underground newspaper had a circulation of over 100,000 during the occupation.

 

Lusseyran and his friends would carry their shoes in their hands. They quietly slipped the two-page paper under doors in apartment buildings in Paris.

 

The Defence de la France newspaper became France Soir after the war. A daily newspaper with a circulation of 1.5 million in the 1950s.

 

Eventually Lusseyran and many of his friends were arrested by the Gestapo. He was mercilessly tortured. 7am to 7pm for days on end. He never gave up any names.

 

He was sent to a concentration camp, Buchenwald.

 

The treatment of the prisoners became progressively worse as the Germans started to lose the war. Food was scarce and sometimes non-existent. Prisoners were weak and dispirited.

 

Lusseyran found an internal wellspring of strength during this time. He helped others. Often he would translate between French and German. He was a brilliant student and had taught himself German by listening to radio broadcasts.

 

In his autobiography, Lusseyran talks of his body getting blocked up and losing control. First, lungs, then intestines, ears, all his muscles and eventually his heart.

 

He was watching his body in the act of leaving this world. Not wanting to.

 

He describes the bodily pain as “twisting and turning in every direction, like snakes that have been cut in pieces.”

 

In the middle of this torture, Lusseyran said something took hold of him…life! He wrote he had never lived so fully before.

 

“Life had become a substance within me…It came toward me like a shimmering wave, like the caress of light. I could see it beyond my eyes and my forehead and above my head. It touched me and filled me to overflowing. I let myself float on it…I drew my strength from the spring. I kept on drinking and drinking still more.”

 

Slowly he came back from the dead. A friend, who Lusseyran thought to be an atheist told him that he didn’t have a chance in the world. Lusseyran burst out laughing. The friend didn’t understand the laugh, but he never forgot it.

 

He left the hospital on his own two feet. He was filled with happiness. Happiness in a Nazi concentration camp!

 

 

What lessons are there for us in Lusseyran’s experiences?

 

He tells us:

 

“To forget was the law…(all) must be forgotten…to hold on to the strength to live…Memories are too tender, too close to fear. They consume energy. We had to live in the present; each moment had to be absorbed for all that was in it, to satisfy the hunger for life…

 

Latch on to the passing minute. Shut off the workings of memory and hope. The amazing thing is that no anguish held out against this treatment for very long…Suffering may persist, but already it is relieved by half. Throw yourself into each moment as if it were the only one that really existed. Work and work hard.”

 

After the war, he married, had children and taught French literature in America.

 

Tragically, he and his wife died in a car accident on holiday in France. He was only 46.

 

Lusseyran showed his gratitude to his country by writing his autobiography AND THERE WAS LIGHT. He expressed two truths that his experiences had taught him.

 

The first truth is that joy does not come from outside but from within.

 

The second truth is that light does not come to us from without. Light is in us, even if we have no eyes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,
