Ever feeling down in the dumps for no reason? I know there are plenty of reasons these days to not feel quite like oneself or joyful… plenty of external circumstances, that is.
I know joy comes from within, where loving Spirit resides. Still, sometimes I really need to pull myself out of a funk. I can do that by listening and singing to music, reading, or getting outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine, to name a few ways.
An additional way I can shift my energy and help me access my joy is to look at the final project I created for my recent “A Consciousness of Joy” class. It’s sort of like a vision board; it contains images and words that make me smile, sometimes make me laugh, helping me back on the road to joy.
Looking at it also reminds me of the fun I had making it, being creative, and playful, which doesn’t happen often enough.
Another tool in my arsenal for getting back to joy is reading and affirming powerful statements of Truth like the following:
“Declare further, “Everything necessary to the full and complete expression of the most boundless experience of joy is mine now.” Know this, see it, feel it, and BE it.”
– “The Science of Mind,” by Ernest Holmes, page 290
And so it is!
