BE Happy

BE Happy

For too long we have believed happiness is external.  We will only be happy if our circumstances change, or people behave more appropriately, or if we finally obtain our heart’s desires.  We wonder why it is so hard.  We ask why happiness is so elusive.  In order for true happiness to manifest it must come through us and from us first.  That’s it. That’s all.  We either choose to open our inner door and effuse everything we see, hear, touch, taste and smell with our unbridled joy—or we don’t.  When we rely on external experiences to cause happiness within us the results are mediocre at best.  If we throw open our door of happiness then only happiness will result which changes experiences yet to be realized into happy ones as well.  Then, and only then will happy, external circumstances heighten our already existing happiness. It is counter-productive to rely on them to CAUSE our happiness. It’s just so simple.  BE happy.  BE happy for no apparent reason.  It changes everything. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Author & Spiritual Teacher

Open The Door

So many ask, “Is it possible?”  The answer is always a resounding “Yes!”  Everything is possible at all times.  Our task is to remove our focus from what isn’t happening; what we don’t have; what has not been received; what is not being reciprocated and what is going so horribly wrong.  When we do we simultaneously open the door to all things wanted.  In other words, your fretfulness, your worry, your despair, your very resistance to the conditions or situations you find yourself in closes the door to what you want.  Happiness, in spite of the conditions or situations, opens the door.  It’s a choice.  Choose to open your door and spend each moment ensuring it stays open.  That’s it.  That’s all.  And it is enough. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher

A Message From The Universe

dallas road 3

This morning I spent some quality time communing with my Guides and the Universe. I was eager to ask their assistance in shifting my rather stale-feeling vibration of late. Inspiration has been flowing but suddenly tapers off to a dull thud. I wanted some guidance in buoying it up and keeping it where it belongs. After meditation and feeling a bit of relief from it I decided to get out in the sunshine and go for a walk.

As I was walking the Dallas Road waterfront (and yes the picture above is a picture of part of it) I immediately came upon an older couple who were looking around at the scenery. The woman stopped me and asked if the path went on much farther. I explained it went on quite a ways and was well worth the walk. She thanked me and as I turned to leave it struck me that they weren’t from Victoria so I hesitated and asked where they were from. They told me they were from Central Texas and then went on to rave about the beauty of the ocean and Victoria. As we talked we walked together and I filled them in about the area. We slowed to a stop and she said they should get going as they were catching the Clipper to Seattle and then to the airport for their flight back to Texas. I wished them a safe journey and just as I was about to leave she reached out and patted my arm and said thanks. Then she said….”Have a happy life.” I was stunned into silence and she looked altogether awkward and blushed saying, “Not sure why I said that…” I let her know I knew exactly why she had and I thanked her for it and we parted ways.

“Have a happy life.” Yes! How often do we become completely blinded in life – blinded by worry, debt, despair. We are here TO be happy but we have been utterly conditioned otherwise. I see posts on Facebook celebrating struggles and how they only come to the strong. Here is a news flash – they come to all of us. You aren’t rewarded with suffering because you are strong – it is just that typically only the strong minded can navigate through to calmer waters. It’s time we stopped celebrating our pain, anguish and problems and start embracing a new way to be.

“Have a happy life.” Yes! We can offer ourselves a respite from our woes just by doing something different; by appreciating that which is right under our nose; by being grateful that the sky is blue, the grass is green and flowers come in a multitude of colours, shapes and sizes (as do we all but that is another article altogether) to be enjoyed. Choosing to appreciate what is around us in the moment does not equate to irresponsibility or denial of what we are perceiving ourselves to be going through. It has everything to do with giving ourselves a much needed lift so that the solutions to our issues float to us. We are worth it.

“Have a happy life.” Yes! A much needed message from the Universe in the guise of a perfect stranger—who is definitely perfect but in the grander scheme of things is definitely no stranger. Message received, dear Universe. Well played.
