Somewhere over the rainbow, under a patch of rambling wildflowers, nestled among overgrown trees is my patch of paradise. I can sit here all day long soaking in the sunshine, playing with my beautiful dogs Princess Lola Jezebelle & Captain Bapuji von Snigglesworth. Together we are all smiles – feeling the bliss of the everything and the nothing. I know that my furry Zen masters have more to teach me about pure being than the other way around, so its my duty to allow them to guide me to letting go of all my silly ideas of have-to’s and need-to’s and want-to’s. All the things I should be tending to that are so much more important than my yellow brick road, right?!
What if I told you that the way you think dreams become a reality is actually so far removed from the magical truth of it all, that you might just spend the rest of your life chasing rainbows instead of dancing underneath them?
I really would rather have you over here playing with me then chasing your tail, so are you ready? Do you want to know the hidden secret to wealth, love, success and happiness?
What if I told you that dreams came true because you frolicked in the woods, basked in the sunshine & partied in the rain?! What if more got done when you celebrated, cherished and enjoyed than if you wrangled & wrestled your to-do list till it was checked off line by line – done and done! What if daydreams and pow-wows were the real secret to wealth and success instead of power-lunches and pinstripes?! What if you knew that pajama parties and pillow fights were the secret to everlasting love and romance?!
Hold on to your top hat, now! I promise you that there is a time and a place for everything. Daily chores have to get done and business demands have to be met – the secret is in how you do them. Do you wake up in a fluster, feeling like you’re already behind?! Do you feel like time is chasing you down so hard you can barely catch a breath? Is your never ending to-do list starting to bear resemblance to an unclimbable skyscraper? Is the idea of life on a secluded desert island starting to feel like your only hope? Then, it’s time for a real mind-set shift direct from the understanding of great wise ones. A tornado of cosmic-consciousness!
Ready?!! Here you go! *Poof*
All the great masters that have ever lived have known that The Greatest Secret To Life is in CELEBRATION!
“Life is a moment to celebrate, to enjoy. Make it fun, a celebration, and then you will enter the temple. The temple is not for the long-faced, it has never been for them. Look at life–do you see sadness anywhere? Have you ever seen a tree depressed? Have you seen a bird anxiety-ridden? Have you seen an animal neurotic? No, life is not like that, not at all. Only man has gone wrong somewhere, and he has gone wrong somewhere because he thinks himself to be very wise, very clever. Your cleverness is your disease. Don’t be too wise. Always remember to stop; don’t go to the extreme. A little foolishness and a little wisdom is good, and the right combination makes you a buddha.” Osho, I Celebrate Myself
In order to live in a joyful new reality of well-being and celebration- you have to ask completely different questions, thinking different delicious new thoughts! Instead of looking at life as a half-empty glass, begin asking yourself juicy questions like: How do I want to enjoy my day? What do I want?!! What will bring me the most joy today? What is the BEST that can happen in this situation? What makes me feel the most alive?!
Celebrating the things you want most in your life, as if they have already arrived, actually brings them closer to you! How exciting is that!!!
According to the Teachings of Abraham, channeled through Esther Hicks – when we yearn for something it means we feel it as being far away from us, and since we live in an Allowing Universe we GET what we feel vibrationally aligned with. Feeling the essence of absence generates more absence + in plain english+ if you love something/someone feel this/them/it as being very close to you – and you will notice the power of your emotional connection to having something bringing it rapidly into your reality!!!
So keep dreaming and dreaming. In Technicolor! Imagine your dreams as being already here in this world. Celebrate their existence, feel the certainty of their manifestation just like a pregnant woman feels her unborn child growing in her womb. Feel the power of this certainty and I promise you will be singing and dancing all the way to the wizard’s castle!
