Linda Adsetts and The Group are here with their weekly Go for the Joy message. Enjoy!
JOY is my business and each time that I write Today’s Message, from The Group I am reminded of how integral joy is to life on planet earth. It is the very essence of our being and one of the most important ingredients, necessary to life on planet earth.
Of course we are not happy all the time, but how many times when you find yourself unhappy, stressed, out of sorts do you reach for something a little more soothing and a little more joyful.
Children are masters at changing their perspectives to fit a situation when allowed. If they are told they can’t do something they want to do, they will find something else to focus their attention upon, if they are left to their own devices. Ground them in their room and soon enough they will find something to occupy themselves with. They will find the joy.
Along the way, I have discovered that you cannot fix an unhappy person because at the core they know they are not broken. They have just forgotten who they be. The best thing to do is to leave them alone and let their instincts guide them into something better for them or if they ask, to help guide them into the remembrance of who they be. It cannot be forced or rushed. Remember how you felt when someone tried to rush you into feeling better and all you wanted to do was wallow in the feeling for just a bit or a lot!
And all we can do is tease ourselves into something easier. Though occasionally a good self talk can get us going!
This week I was thinking about joy and the last few occasions that brought me joy. Last week, I treated myself to a silver thumb ring and for whatever reason, it has brought me great joy, joy that is out of proportion to the purchase. Something about this delightful ring on my right thumb delights me and makes me smile. There it is. Such a simple thing.
The same day I bought the ring I ran the Bars on a four year old girl that was born with some challenges. She was not happy to be on the massage table at first. I asked her questions that her mom answered for her and all the while she was paying close attention to me. As I had my hands on the first Bar called the implant band, I told her she wasn’t broken and she didn’t need to be fixed. I told her how perfect she was, how beautiful and smart she was and with those words and the energies that were activated, she quickly drifted off. Her mom was surprised because apparently this is not what she typically does. While I facilitated the session, I sensed the stories that she carries with her from others and the challenges she has chosen for this life. That session brought me much joy because I was witnessing the grandness of being human. It was a beautiful gift to bear witness to this astonishing child.
My latest joy inducing moment was today at the park, lying on the grass soaking up the sunshine, watching eagles soar overhead. It was a wonderfully soothing moment to allow nature to nurture me. Such a simple thing.
Joy is all around you on planet earth, waiting to be discovered. You are the ones with the eyes and the hearts to see and feel where it lies for you. Some of it will be shared common ground and some of it will be a very individual experience. Your very beings cry out for the experience, no matter how quiet and simple or loud and celebratory, whether by yourself or shared. There joy sits waiting to be discovered.
You need not wait for any special occasion-you could wait a long while (smile) and you need not make the moment too special. Sometimes it is a simple noticing and allowing the energy to permeate your being and you will cradle it in your heart where it will grow and seed more joy.
There is more joy on your planet than sadness. Thank goodness for children, even those who you may judge as disadvantged are capable of experiencing joy more easily than some of you. They will look for any reason to smile. They will find any reason to be in joy. Dear ones, you might take a lesson or two from those that know.
The time has come for all of you to rise up in joyous celebration of each other and all that you be. In each of you is something waiting to be acknowledged by you and by others. And you can gift that to someone else and so on and so on. It is the perpetual chain letter of the most wondrous kind. The gift that keeps on giving.
Nurture the joy in yourselves and in others and try very hard not to squash another’s joy. If you cannot join in then simply step away and allow them their moments of joy, but we highly recommend that you find a way to join in. Your lives are short and impactful. Each kind and joyous moment impacts the planet and every being upon it and beyond into the universes that you are yet to discover.
It is a grand and glorious playground that you are on and in. Play well together and remember to always…..
