Today I invite happiness into my life. I make myself a promise to focus on the positive things that bring me joy. I will enlarge those areas in my life the inspire me.
I welcome joyfulness and exuberance and enthusiasm into my life. I deserve these positive emotions. I am worthy of feeling good about myself and my life.
I will collect happiness affirmations that I can post in places where I can read them easily and often.
I do this because I deserve to be happy.
I choose to be happy.
I choose to be joyful.
I choose to be exuberant
I choose to be enthusiastic
I choose change.
My three candle Happiness Ritual
I light a white candle to symbolize the peace I wish to feel and ring a bell to proclaim “listen, this is important”
I light a yellow candle to symbolize the creativity I wish to bring to this solution and I ring the bell again.
I light a red candle to symbolize the energy, strength, and courage I bring to this choice and I ring the bell again.
A make positive affirming statement about how I want to feel and with which emotions I want to experience my life:
- I open myself up to joy
- I open myself up to happiness.
- I open myself to feeling harmony
- I open myself up to appreciating the good in the world around me
- I open myself to fun and a childlike celebration of the little things
- I open myself to seeing my life filled with enthusiasm and exuberance
- I open myself to saying “it is amazing to be alive”
- I open myself to love both given and received
- I welcome joy
- I welcome happiness
- I welcome these changes into my life
- This is the new me.
- This is my desire.
Sit and meditate on the things that bring me happiness and joy.
Each thought becomes a proactive statement on things that I can do that bring me happiness.
I will not stop until I have at the very least ten things on my list that I can do to actively bring happiness, joy, enthusiasm and good things into my life.
I meditate on how I will feel when I allow these emotions back into my life.
I reflect on how much I deserve to feel these good emotions.
I will sit in candle glow until I feel peaceful and content in this moment of self appreciation.
