Today is a day of joy and connection. Today is a day to step outside and take a deep breath and declare to all the world: I am alive! Today is a day to feel the energy coursing through your veins and allow that energy to flow freely, enlivening and empowering you. Today is a day to embrace simply being alive, for no other reason than because you are.
Do not judge whether outer circumstances are good enough to allow you to enjoy yourself. Do not set the day against a standard which must be met before you fill with joy. Fill with joy just because you are you and the day is.
Life is. It unfolds as it unfolds. You are. You stand within your life and blossom. Let us see you blossom.
Take one moment in your life, something very ordinary that you do every day, and turn it into a spiritual and joyful experience. For example, going out to get the mail or the newspaper. Walking across a parking lot and passing under a tree. Walking by a window that overlooks a garden. Take some moment with a touch of beauty in it and fill that moment with joy. Every time you walk down the driveway or parking lot or by that window, slow down, take a deep breath and pull in joy, letting it pour in with golden energy through the top of your head and fill your body completely, each breath pulling in more golden joy.
Do this every day. And throughout the day, if you find yourself feeling sad or low, just picture that moment and breathe in the joy again.
Teach your mind and body this experience of joy and beauty. You deserve to be full of love and joy every moment of every day.
Here is a little prayer for today
I breathe in joy with every breath. I allow it to fill me. I deserve this joy. It is a natural part of me and my life.
I am love and joy. I relax into life and embrace it, just as it is, just as I am. I allow myself to feel all the joy that is there for me.
I am love and peace. I am joy. I am.
