Magic Sparkles Of Happiness ~ I Am Grateful For Life

Chapter 4 ~ I Am Grateful For Life And Life Is Grateful For Me

This article contains fragments from the chapter 4 of the book Magic Sparkles of Happiness.

“Joy is the simplest form of gratitude." – Karl Barth

grateful

I am grateful for my work and my work is grateful for me.

I am grateful for life and life is grateful for me.
I am grateful for people and people are grateful for me. And I am grateful for appreciation and appreciation is grateful for me.

I am grateful for hugs and hugs are grateful for me.

I am grateful that I understand perfectly the good things sent to me from the Universe.

You understand that you enjoy the benefits of you being/feeling grateful, which is an amazing feeling.

And you also enjoy the wonderful answer of the Universe, which is more powerful, because the Universe is bigger than you.

The affirmations from this chapter imply a harmonious resonance between you and life, which will bring you gratitude, love, serenity, security, and confidence.

In I am grateful for the Universe and the Universe is grateful for me, it is inherently implied that the Universe is always grateful for me, no matter what I do; which is true.
It implies a harmonious resonance, a partnership between me and the Universe. This is a complete affirmation.

The Universe is always grateful for us

It sustains us always, just that most of the time we do not feel its love, in our consciousness. Because what we feel in our consciousness needs to have a root inside of us.

When the energy pattern of a certain feeling or emotion is not inside us, the Universe cannot make us feel anything. The Universe sends and sends and sends and sends to us all its abundance and nothing sticks to us, since there are no roots inside us, no burgeoned seeds inside us with which he can connect and create towards us a flow/bridge of abundance.

The same principle applies to every good feeling that exists in this world, among which Love is the most important, feelings like gratitude, enthusiasm, passion, kindness, generosity, compassion, gentleness, happiness, acceptance, warm-heartedness. And this attitude makes you think in a positive and happy way, therefore making you feel positive and happy.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others." – Marcus Tullius Cicero

Author’s word

This book contains positive affirmations that make you feel happy. I recommend you to read throughout the chapters, taking each sentence, one by one. The sentences are arranged in a certain serene flow but can also be read separately.

The writing of this book has begun with my daily writings. I had some blissful, full of love, mesmerizing days when I just felt that I want to connect my own being with positive, high and strong words. Then connect myself with everything around me, connect my consciousness with the reality outside me. In this state I began to write this book.

Reduce Stress By Positive Thinking. This Guide Will Help You

Have you been feeling empty and tired recently? Okay, these are the first signs of coming depression. Not to develop it to the full extent, you need to get out from the darkness and come back to the light of life. We know what you need to cure the upcoming disease – positive thinking! If you wish to find out how to reduce stress by positive thinking, then keep on reading!

Stop Negative Self-Talk

Everyone talks to oneself, right? The point is how you do that in various situations. For example, you failed the exam in college. The first thing that comes to your mind has to be probably: “I am useless" or “I failed it again." Guess what? This is a completely wrong way of thinking. You should get rid of such thoughts right away!

Instead, you have to forgive yourself and motivate for the future: “Next time, I will do better," or “It is okay to make mistakes. I have still passed the test though the score is not the best." If you are feeling the depression is coming, change the strict attitude to yourself by comforting kind words.

stress

Be Grateful

You should always be grateful to everything that surrounds you. In the period of upcoming depression, you should remind yourself of how grateful you are even more. To embrace a more positive attitude, you have to stop for a moment and see how much you have: the loving family, the opportunity to study in college, two arms and two legs that allow you to function fully, and many other things.

To understand clearer what you should be grateful for, write down all the things you have, both material and nonmaterial, and smile when the list is over. Why smile? Because there are many things you should say “Thank you" for when you wake up each morning!

Positive Thinking Meditation

If you do not feel that anything mentioned above helps, then try positive thinking meditation each day. 20 minutes a day will be enough – concentrate on positive thoughts and observe yourself from outside.

Make slow deep breaths and reflect on something that brings you joy – it might be the sunny day at the sea or walking with your dog or spending time with your funny friends. Reflect on how much joy it brings you and smile inside and out.

If you try and think positive, stress will never appear in your life again! Can you not think positive because you are overloaded with tedious essays? Relax! Have a look at our editing services for students and get back to meditation!

Laugh More

Laughter is an amazing thing that is able to reduce the stress and make our lives longer. If you do not find any reason to laugh in your everyday life, just look at its funniest part!

First of all, you should surround yourself with people who are able to make you laugh. If you do not have any, watch the comedies on TV or enter the groups on Facebook that will post one joke per day minimum. After waking up, visit the group, read the joke, and get the positive vibes for the rest of the day. How to find the correct group? Well, do you love the animals? Then, enter the group 9GAG Cute where funny videos with adorable pets are posted. Seriously, you will not be able to resist and not laugh and melt looking at the cute puppies and kittens.

positive

Justify the Person’s Bad Behavior

Each time you hear something negative directed at you, do not take it personally. The polite and thoroughbred person will never say anything nasty to anyone. If the person still does something bad, you need to understand that s/he might be upset or angry, s/he might be going through the relationship crisis, or someone is sick in his/her family.

The person says it to lash out and not to hurt anyone. Plus, you might misinterpret his/her intentions and understand him/her wrong. You need to think positively and say to yourself: “I simply misunderstood him/her. S/he did not mean what s/he said," or “This person had a bad day – I should not feel grumpy about what s/he said."
Think positive and do not allow anyone to ruin your day!

I Am Grateful For My Place And Purpose In The World

I am an inspired individual, whose daily footprint is best expressed through words and thoughts in writing.
Each day is a blessing, some say a gift.

For those of us who have the good fortune of receiving love, support from friends and family, have a choice regarding our education and vocations. They can surely hope to evolve learn and find peace and contentment with our choices.

There are people less able to make choices because illness or a disability or social circumstances limits their dreams, hopes, and aspirations.

Success is measured in many ways, and not necessarily by wealth and fame.

If I was to define success I would say the following

The success story of humanity lies in the way we interact and share our qualities positively with the rest of the human race. I am most grateful for my journey from youth to present.
I may not be a chief executive or drive an expensive vehicle or possess expensive materialistic items, but my place and purpose and positive choices are important footprints in my daily space and the space I share with others.

Like others, I have experienced suffering and pain, but steered myself through darkness with positive thoughts. My choices have not always steered me along a positive path, but knowing, that others are suffering in the world, are victims of cruelty or geographical disasters, confirmed that I am in position to make choices, some of which are good, some bad.

I am most grateful for my inner strength

Grateful for the gifts life has blessed me with, and grateful that I recognize my purpose as a sentient human being. Grateful for all I have received in my life journey, of living and learning the many different life events and experiences on my journey. Also grateful for the space I occupy on this wonderful planet and the energy I emanate daily to all in my personal and professional arenas.

life force

I am grateful that I feel established and comfortable with the human being I am, my place and purpose. Therefore I find little reason to complain.
My achievements may not be grand or make ground breaking news.

But their significance and purpose are footprints from my journey.
I am at peace with myself , happy and content.

Grateful is a positive word

‘Life force’

We are beautiful instruments,
Living in the ever ongoing
Mysterious orchestra of energy.
That delivers our purpose and grace.
So we may emanate our own individual
music to share
and be received as gifts
of humanity in the hearts
of those with whom we
Share our world.

I hope you all enjoy.

Peace and Blessings ~ Stephanie Howard.

Author’s Bio

Grew up in the North of England as a young child, steered my way through a difficult relationship with my mother and stepfather. Most of my spare time and school holidays was spent with my sister who had health difficulties.

In the early part of my life journey I was fortunate to have two wonderful uncles in my life. They recognized my creative gift for words and writing thus encouraged me to express myself through words and writing.

I reflect on those moments in my journey shared with two wonderful human beings and their wonderful minds, whose influence left an impression so my journey would grow and evolve. As a result I grew to be who I am and express my gratitude, compassion and energy, through my love of words and writing.

I work full time not as a writer, but I am in the process of writing a book a thought/poem/affirmation for each day of the year I belong to the spiritual writers network who have published two of my poems. ©

Magic Sparkles of Happiness ~ I Am Bless And Bless Is Me

By Elena D. Calin

This article contains fragments from the book Magic Sparkles of Happiness, Chapter 3 ~ I Am Bless And Bless Is Me

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning." – Mahatma Gandhi

bless

I am joy and joy is me.

I am bless and bless is me. I am love and love is me. I am abundance and abundance is me. I am prosperity and prosperity is me. I am happiness and happiness is me. I am strong and strong is me. I am powerful and powerful is me. I am success and success is me. I am beauty and beauty is me. I am peace and peace is me.

I am inspiration and inspiration is me.

I am thankfulness and thankfulness is me. I am freedom and freedom is me. I am vitality and vitality is me. I am perfection and perfection is me. I am gorgeous and gorgeous is me. I am ready and ready is me. I am kindness and kindness is me. I am self-respect and self-respect is me.

When we could be only happiness, then we will feel only happiness.

We would receive only happiness since only happiness we would recognize. We would attract only happiness. Only happiness would stick to us. We would be a form that holds only happiness. To all other feelings we would just remain immune.

We would give only happiness to others. We could not give anything else. We could not give nothing since all the time we would give happiness. We could not stop ourselves from not giving happiness to all the people, no matter their age, language, skin color, social status, disabilities, abilities, level of studies, thinking. Because we would be only Happiness.

A man said to the Buddha, “I want Happiness."

Buddha said, first remove “I", that’s ego,

then remove “want", that’s desire.

See now you are left with only Happiness.

Let’s think empowering thoughts…

… and fill ourselves with happiness so that we overflow with happiness at least three times a day. We give happiness to others when we overflow from within ourselves with happiness. That means we would feel, in almost every corner of our inner self, the feeling of happiness, and then more. More means that we multiply our happiness.

We multiply our happiness when we feel grateful while we feel the feeling of happiness. Therefore to overflow with happiness we need a simple reason for being happy and practice gratitude simultaneous. When you overflow with happiness, you are happiness and happiness is you.

The same process applies to everything else. To overflow with love, first you start practicing feeling the love and then you multiply that feeling by being grateful. When you overflow with love, you are Love and Love is you. A little secret to help you start practicing Love is: start practicing kindness, then loving-kindness, then you pass to feeling the Love.

Albert Einstein said: “Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them."

I believe that the awareness of a certain word makes you feel that word.

Therefore, when you are aware of a problem, first transform your level of awareness and then, try to solve that awareness. Most of the time, when you have an emotional struggle, the main reason is because you are focusing too much on a certain negative word.

For the moment, you find yourself located at the level of awareness of that negative word. The solution is to develop your awareness for the positive word, which is the opposite of the negative word.

The transition can be made with the below Step 2, where you are negating the positive world, you are saying not together with the positive word. Therefore you can jump through levels that take you to the positive feeling represented by the positive word, when you start from the negative feeling represented by the negative word, by taking the following simple steps:

Step 1) Name a single word for your negative emotion.

This is the easiest part because you are complaining about it in your mind, so you know what you are struggling with. For example name it like: sad, angry, mad, complaining. Then acknowledge it saying: “I am sad. I feel sad."

But, don’t stay too much in this state of awareness. Take the next step 2.

Step 2) Replace the negative word with two words, composed of not and the opposite of the negative word.

For sad we have happy, therefore you will have not happy. Spend some time by focusing on these words. You can repeat to yourself: “I am not happy. I don`t feel happy."

Then, think at the information stored in your mind related to what not happy means to you. In this stage, you will see that your brain will come with a list of happy things that you lack in the moment. This is precisely what you need. You can write it down and look at your treasure.

The list is a treasure because now you have a list with things that make you happy and you can start doing them and start being happy. But before going through the list, make step 3 also.

Step 3) Start repeating in your mind only the positive word, without not.

In our example you can say the word happy. You can also say happiness. Say in your mind the words at least 35 times, and then increase the reinforcement to 40, 60, 100, 200, 400, 1000 times until it makes sense to you, until your brain starts to reflect and focus on these words.

To make it easier and more powerful, write it down on a piece of paper. You can write the word happiness as many times as you need, until you feel the awareness of the word. Write it with big letters (this always has the biggest impact) and even in different colors.

I strongly believe that not what we say to ourselves troubles us so much, but what we don’t say to ourselves is troubling us, especially when we need to hear certain words in our consciousness. Most of the time we all search the feeling of relief, and in this way you can offer to yourself some self-relief.

If you do not know and really understand what a positive word stands for…

… then look it up in the dictionary, research it on internet and read articles and books about that word (there are many books about loving-kindness, acceptance, gratitude, equanimity, warm-heartedness, self-love, relief, abundance, peace of mind, mindfulness, confidence, happiness).

If you do not know positive words then put positive words in google and click on the first list that comes in your search. It is the list of positive words that I’ve created and published on Positive Words Research, the website that I founded at the beginning of 2013. Inspire yourself from this list whenever you feel you need a positive word.

The direct link of this list of positive words is:

http://PositiveWordsResearch.com/List-of-Positive-Words

A sentence is an accumulation of words.

When we grow up we need to take the responsibility of being our own teachers. And when a positive word weakens in our mind, we need to give ourselves the task to reinforce that word.

Except writing the word, a more powerful way to reinforce the word “happiness" in your mind is for you to start researching on the word happiness. Read in a dictionary what it means.

Increase your awareness by reading articles on the Internet about the word happiness. Read books about happiness. There are a lot these days. Find and learn all the positive words that are connected to the word happiness. There are so unbelievably many related words to happiness.

“Well, you know, a lot of people look at the negative things, the things that they did wrong and – which I do. But I like to stress on the things I did right, because there are certain things that I like to look at from a positive standpoint that are just positive reinforcement." – Tiger Woods

Magic Sparkles of Happiness ~ I Used To Not Love And Now I Am Loving

By Elena D. Calin

Chapter 2 ~ I Used To Not Love And Now I Am Loving

“I’d far rather be happy than right any day." – Douglas Adams

used

I used to not feel loved and now I am feeling so loved. I just feel, now, so loved.

I used to not feel so alive and now I am feeling so alive. I just somehow feel alive now. I used not to feel like this. And now I feel like this.

I used to think I am not blessed and now I am feeling blessed. It just happened for me. I feel blessed. I used not to feel like this. I used to feel different. Now I feel blessed. It happened to me.

I used to not love people so much. Maybe I loved a few people. And now I am feeling love for so many people. I love singers, dancers, writers of movies, people that take care of the bakery in front of my house, the ones that take care of the park near me where I love to walk, and the neighbors that keep me secure in my house because we all live, together, in a building. And all the other people, so many people that are just amazing. Now I am just used to loving people.

I used to not love my body. And now I am feeling so much love for my body.

My body is a miracle; I used to not believe this. Just that now I do feel like this. I feel love for my body. I used not to feel it. And now I feel this love. I used not to respect myself so much and now I practice self-respect. Life is so much easier if I give self-respect to me when I need it. I love self-respect.

I used to think mainly at the not so good stuff that was happening all around the world. And I felt that these pictures are making me feel like I was living in a not secure world.

And now I am thinking mainly at all the good, beautiful, fabulous, mesmerizing, breath taking stuff that is happening all around the world. I have no control over all the not so good stuff which is happening in the world. Just that now I am also thinking that I have no control over the good stuff that is happening in the world.

This good stuff is multiplying in the world without me controlling it.

No matter if I have trust in people or I don’t, in reality there are these millions of people that are committed to see beauty in the world. They surf, they throw themselves from the cliffs into the water and then climb back to do it again. They run in races, they give birth to children, they dance, they teach other people how to dance, they just do all these millions of good stuff in the world.

And I could, and maybe actually I did, dedicate my life in visualizing all this beauty on Earth. The more I picture all this beauty, all this magic abundance, I know that I will not have time in my life to, at least, think of them, not to discover them, just to have a picture of them in my mind.

Then I remember that all is abundance. Therefore time is also in abundance for everyone. So I know and feel that I will have more than enough time to picture and discover all the beauty on this paradise which we all call Earth. Because we all live forever, right?

I used to not trust myself and now I am doing it.

I trust myself. And it seems that since I trust myself, others trust me also.

I used not to smile when I was walking alone on the street and now I smile whenever I remember to. And some people passing on the street besides me smile also without thinking why, just because they had a glance of my smiling face. And I like this, to make them smile, only because they passed me by. So I try to remember and do it as often as I can.

used1

I used to think other people consume my love and now I am happy that they feel my love.

Actually people only feel my love when I overflow with it. I used not to know this about life. I used not to know that you give, only when you overflow with something. I used not to overflow with love so often. And this is why, when I overflew love in the past, people felt my love, then the overflow stopped, so the love stopped, I did not feel it anymore and I believed that they’ve consumed my love.
And I so wanted to enjoy more of that love. Just that now I overflow daily with love, I am like a never-ending river. I am grateful for this. I know I used to not feel like this.

I used to not feel young inside my mind and now I feel so young. I know I used to feel I have an old mind; I felt it in the past even if I was less than 25 years old. I used to say that my face looks young but that I feel my mind is so old. Now I feel my mind is so young. I am happy that I will learn so many things in this life.

I used to not feel the freedom and now I feel the freedom.

I used to feel not free. I used to feel that all the people are not living freely, in their small concrete boxes all their life, in our small bedrooms. I used not to understand how they can live like this, not free.

Now I feel the freedom. Now I feel others freedom also.
There are so many free people in the world. There are so many people that freely do what they know they should do.
They follow the Love.

Now I think of all the people that are creating the life they want. And I allow them to do this, in my mind. Now I just do the same, feel free and create the life I want.
I discovered that people are allowing me to have my freedom, nobody actually tries to stop me from doing what I love and being who I love to be. Before this, I was living in illusion. I was trapped by my own perception.

I used to not have fun in what I was doing during the day and now I just have fun in my daily simple activities.

I have fun when I dress, when I walk, when I brush my hair, when I clean my teeth, when I write, when I just say doing nothing. I used to not have so much fun when I was writing and now I just have fun.

Somehow I make it fun. All these ideas come to me and make me smile. Sometimes I believe I can write forever, or I could get dressed forever, or I could brush my hair forever, or I could smile forever. Or I could look at the blue sky forever, or I could walk in the snow in quiet forever, or I could kiss someone forever. So many things that I want to do forever, and all of them are from this world.

I used to not feel good and now I just feel good.

I feel good! And I still have to sleep 7-8 hours every 16-17 hours. Just that now I feel good with this ritual of my human nature. And I still have to get dressed and go to work.

And I still have to eat three times and take other different little snacks during a day. And I still need to wash my body. And I still need to go to the toilet every day. And I still need to wash my hands every time after going to the toilet. And I still have to drink liters of water. And I am tired during the day from time to time. And I still have headaches from time to time. And I still need to buy food for my cat. And I still need to wake up in the morning. So many mornings!

Thankfulness to you and thankfulness to me also that I do all this every day. I used to not feel grateful for doing all these and now I feel grateful. Now I try to color all my doings with the colors of love and gratitude. I don’t try to do all I do, only out of love or gratitude; this is very hard.

But I try to do my daily activities, which I am already doing, with drops of love and gratitude in them. It’s like a rain of light pouring on all my doings. And somehow things changed without me directly changing them. Now I just feel good!
