“If your mind isn’t cluttered by unnecessary things, this could be the best day of your life.”—From a message left on my voicemail by The Zing of the Possibility Alliance
Some authors write about changing your life through healthy eating. Or meditating. Others suggest writing affirmations or visualizing
As for me, I offer one easy message: Open your joy channels.
When you get happy, the largesse of the universe can’t help but rush in.
It’s so easy that most people walk right by it, they roll their eyes and think, “Sure, Pam! It can’t be that easy.”
So I’ll say it one more time. It really IS that easy.
In my power posse yesterday, we had a blast sharing stories about just this topic. We decided that part of our mission and why we love this group SO FRICKIN’ MUCH is because we take time to register, to note, to document (well, we don’t really write it down) how frequently the universe works in our favor.
Frank brought in a stuffed monkey (says he’s doing the extra credit from Experiment One in E-Cubed), Nikki told us about the free pizza she won after taking the day off work and Rhonda shared this story that clearly demonstrates the awesome fact that celebrating life brings more to celebrate.
She and her husband, an architect, went to an awards banquet at a small Catholic college where he’s doing some design work. Sitting behind them was a table of eight or so nuns. They were all somewhere between 60 and 90 years old, Rhonda said
“Now, I’ve been to lots of these banquets and they’re always nice, polite affairs. But at this one, after all the awards had been given and the ceremonies had commenced, a DJ came out and started playing dance music,” Rhonda said. “My jaw nearly dropped.”
And as Kool and the Gang started in with “Celebrate Good Times,” those nuns got up and started dancing. Really getting into it.
“They didn’t sit down once,” Rhonda said. “And then the emcee got up to pull a name out of the hat for the grand prize trip to Ireland.”
You guessed it?
“Mary Katherine!” One of the “We’re gonna have a good time tonight” nuns.
If you’re anywhere near Denver this coming weekend, Rhonda and I will be at the Hay House “I Can Do It” conference. I’m giving a workshop on Sunday and we’re both psyched about meeting Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay (we’re affirming she’s going to make a surprise appearance), Cheryl Richardson and all the other cool Hay House authors. It’s not too late to get a ticket.
And in the meantime, tell me in the comments section below what you’re going to do today to “Celebrate Good Times.”
