The Key is Joy

Posted by

I have to say, while the premise of books like The Secret or the Power of now hold some truth, they also do a lot of damage. Good people write themselves out a check for $100K and then it does not manifest so they end up feeling unworthy or that they did something wrong. The key to everything is inside you already, and what unlocks abundance is using the key. It is joy.

When I am working on something important with my drum circle. We usually start by going to a place of gratitude. This puts people in a state where they are able to receive. What they think about to get them into that state opens up an ability to communicate with Spirit through the heart and it is a much clearer form of communication then the head based kind. Spirit understands the heart based communication ( emotional) with much more ease than logical communication.

I do my daily affirmations, take my three breaths. balance my T…. bar blah. blah , blah. Today I thought I would try something different. I thought, “What gives me the most joy.” The answers were: my kids, most of the time. The beach, always. My horses, that was what I was looking for, because the beach is kind of far.

I printed my affirmations. Grabbed my coffee, cigarettes,( because these things in the morning also make me happy) some carrots ( because they make my horses happy) dragged out a chair and sat in the middle of the field. True love is a horse leaving a fresh bale of hay to come and check out why it is that you are sitting in the middle of the field. Apple Jack did this quickly. So he got a carrot. Shiloh was hurt by people and not quite as trusting, but she came once she heard him crunch that carrot. They both rubbed me with their noses, Jack put his head on my shoulder and these interactions created a sense of true joy. So I pulled out the paper with the affirmations. Jack licked it, more joy. Then I started to say them. The entire time the horses were nudging me for carrots and attention. This made the whole session joyful. When I finished, the sun winked at me, so I know they heard.

So, I guess my point is, when performing your daily prayers or affirmations do it from a place of joy, whether you create this sense with your mind or physically go to a place that is joyful. Below are the affirmations I used. Feel free to use them yourself I found them on keeper of the flame .com: A website some of you might also enjoy
