When last did you feel deeply, the sense of unbridled joy and freedom which a child experiences when it experiences something for the first time? That experience that brings one a deep sense of wonder and excitement, bringing you completely and utterly into the present moment, where nothing else but that joyful experience exists.
Well today, I'm asking you to go within yourself and try to recall an experience just like that! An experience from some time in your past where you truly felt this way! And if you can't recall anything - pretend, imagine how this would feel. Spend some time with this so that you begin to feel it not only on a mental level, but on a physical and emotional level too! Feel it welling up within your body. Feel a smile begin to expand across your face. Feel the tingling excitement. Allow yourself to immerse your whole being into this experience. Now, from this heightened state, quickly, without giving it too much thought, allow an idea of what would give you an actual experience of this now. It might be going to hug/play with your dogs; it might be grabbing your partner and dancing; it will be something different for everyone. But when this idea flashes across your mind - go and do it! And then remember this moment of joy! And begin to recall more, and create more new experiences of these kinds of moments. Remind yourself, place little 'post-it' notes on mirrors, on doors, so that you bring into your mundane daily routine, intense moments of joy, reminding yourself that life is not merely a drudge, but also a series of moments that make you feel truly alive, joyful and free!
So, beautiful souls, go out and express joy in your lives today, and every moment you possibly can. For you will never have this moment again - make the most of it!!
Love and joy to all,
