Change Your Mood in 70 Seconds!
By Carole Lynne
Learn this quick exercise, and when your mood falls down, pick it up fast. This whimsical yet spiritual exercise really works! Whatever problems you have on your mind be they personal or world problems: they can be more easily solved when you are in a better mood.
The HappyU Exercise
Read through this exercise once, and then take seventy seconds to try it. Repeat as often as needed.
H = Hope for Happiness (repeat words for 10 seconds)
A= Accept Life (repeat words for 10 seconds)
As you repeat the words "Accept Life" for ten seconds, focus on the way life's experiences take us up and down all the time. Sometimes we are in a cycle that feels wonderful and at other times we do not know how we will make it through the day. A lot can be learned from those who have physical disabilities, and yet with acceptance lead productive and happy lives. In this moment, accept life with all its many colors and situations. Accept, accept, and accept! Take a deep breath now and know how alive you are. Know that as you accept life and its challenges, you will have the energy to help yourself and others.
Visualize a color, a flower, a person, a beach, a spiritual symbol or any other image that can quickly change your mood. It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and in ten seconds you will prove that to yourself. You are replacing your images of catastrophe with an image that brings happiness.
In your mind, play a song or any sound that makes you happy. Listen to the birds, or the sound of a waterfall. Listen to the laughter of a child, the sound of a harp, or play your favorite song in your mind. Music is always a mood lifter.
Y=Yearn for Happiness (feel your need for happiness for 10 seconds)
Feel within your soul a yearning for the happiness that life offers. Do not demand happiness or beg for happiness. Yearning and aspiring for a quality sends your intentions out into the universe. As you allow yourself to yearn for happiness, you are creating the space within the soul to receive true bliss. With this bliss you will be inspired to make good choices for yourself and for your world.
U= Unite with Life (repeat words for 10 seconds)
Okay, it is true that life has its ups and downs, backwards and forwards actions, and its depressions and elations. We are human beings with human challenges. Our difficulties are all part of the yin and yang of material life. As you repeat the words "Unite with Life" in your mind for ten seconds, know that you are part of the whole of existence. Each one of us is a spark of the Divine Consciousness. We have access to the psychic inner voice that connects us to the God of our understanding. Remember that the word "psychic" in ancient times meant "soul." You are born with a cosmic connection to your soul energy. You are born with a cosmic connection to the Divine. As you allow yourself to open up spiritually, you will be able to give more to yourself, your family, your community and your world.
What to do with the last 10 seconds?
A HappyU Helps the World
U become happy,U become a valuable asset to yourself and others. A HappyU
will be inspired and motivated. A HappyU will love each day of summer
fun that comes your way, whether you are taking care of your kids, finding
romance with a new love, working with a community group to help others,
or just drinking lemonade in the backyard. Is this exercise fun? You bet.
As much fun as eating corn on the cob on a hot summer night, AND it works!
