What Are You Doing Today?

Your life depends on you being happy.
You happiness depends on you choosing positive thoughts, words and interactions.
You are a gift to your world, so give your happiness.
Give yourself the gift of true and natural happiness.

Give the feelings of  happiness to your mind and body.
Bring happiness to your home and your family.
Share happiness with your workplace and the work you do.
Appreciate happiness you see and feel in others.

What we give attention to will naturally grow and expand.
When we find happiness in ourselves and others, enjoy it.
When we see happiness being shared, appreciate it.
We are here to share, value and expand the happiness we know.

If there is withholding of love, we will feel unhappy.
If we are not happy with ourselves, we may feel sick.
If we are jealous of others’ happiness, we deny ourselves.
If you focus on unhappiness, we encourage unhappiness.

We are simply creating what we seek.
When we seek what is wrong, we see what needs our correction.

When we seek what is beautiful, peaceful and happy, we find what we seek.

Life constantly re-imagines itself in its own likeness and image.
We continuously are re-creating what we “think” we want.
Changing our focus changes the channel.
Our view of the world and our life is a product of our own thoughts and feelings.

Seeking to be happy is the first step to choosing happiness.
When we choose to be happy, we remember a picture of being happy.
When we remember an experience, real or imagined, we initiate the feeling.
When we feel happy, we remember our natural state is true happiness.

What are you willing to do for yourself today?
Are you open and willing to be happy first?
Are you open to share your happiness wherever you go?
Being happy is your gift to your world!

I love you and me, when I share my happiness!

A very good career choice would be to gravitate toward those activities and to embrace those desires that harmonize with your core intentions, which are freedom and growth—and joy. Make a "career" of living a happy life rather than trying to find work that will produce enough income that you can do things with your money that will then make you happy. When feeling happy is of paramount importance to you—and what you do "for a living" makes you happy—you have found the best of all combinations.

Always write and say affirmations 20 times daily for two weeks for the greatest effectiveness and clearing.  
They are use as erasers filled with love.  
When you mind is clear of all fear, resistance and even memory, the affirmation has done its job.
Letting go, forgiveness and affirmation is a powerful eraser of what was.  Betty Lue

How to Use Affirmations:

Affirmations are used to clear unconscious programming that tends to guide our thoughts, feelings and behavior. 
Writing, speaking and hearing us say the affirmation aloud clears the false beliefs through our sense of sight, sound and touch.  
It is essential that we keep writing and saying the affirmations until there is no longer resistance to the limiting beliefs.  
Affirmations are not to be used to develop a new belief, but only useful to clear false limiting programs.  
Once there is quiet, clarity, no resistance, we are complete.

My favorite way to do affirmations is to divide the lined page down the middle.  
The affirmation is written on the left side and your mind chatter or contradictory thought is written on the right side.
Then cross off the negative.  
Write the affirmation again on the left and listen to your mind chatter and write on the right.
 Cross the mind chatter off.  
Continue writing the affirmation 20 times and listen for the resistant thought after each one.
I would do it all by hand, so I could cross it off with my pen!!  
20 times daily for 14 days or until there is no resistance.
Do no more than three different affirmations at a time.
Things may change dramatically, so be prepared to notice big difference.

Life works when we are willing to do the work.  

Ask me for help if you have trouble finding the affirmations that are most effective for you.
Always choose an affirmation that you resist, because it will help clear away what is blocking your Good.
They will always feel like a lie in the beginning and you may find great resistance to doing them!!

Useful suggestions for applying the technique of Autosuggestion to the AffirmationsWrite each affirmation 10 to 20 times. 
Writing is an extremely powerful technique of autosuggestion.
 Work with one or more every day. Good times are just before sleeping, before starting the day and especially whenever you feel at effect. 
They can also be recorded on cassette tape and played back to yourself. 
The best way to do that is by recording each affirmation 5 or 10 times so that you have time to think about them when they are playing.
Make a list of the affirmations that are most meaningful to you.
Put specific names and situations into the affirmations.
Play with the vocabulary in the affirmation--make it personal and meaningful to  yourself.
Say the affirmations to yourself in the first, second and third persons as follows: 
I,  (name), now like myself.  You, (name), now like yourself.   Name, now likes him/herself.
Feel free to invent new ones.
Continue working with them daily until they become totally integrated into your consciousness.
To dissolve negative mental patterns and free maximum aliveness in your consciousness, write each affirmation in order 10 or 20 times. 
Note the ones that are most meaningful or produce the greatest charge. 
Continue working with these until they go flat. 
When they go flat, you are at total cause and master of the results implied by the affirmations.
