It’s such a blessing for me to connect with you again in this way.
Over the past few months, a great shift has taken place that has set the tone for a powerful yet unexpected revolution to make its way into the mainstream.
In the summer of 2013, a fun animated movie titled Despicable Me 2 premiered, and instantly became a hit with children of all ages around the world. But like the lifespan of most movies, it quickly came and went.
While the movie was in theaters, there was no real attention given to its soundtrack, which included a song that was little-known at the time, called “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. To listen to the song, please visithttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM
The Revolution Begins
Then towards the end of 2013, something quite interesting started happening.
This little song known as “Happy” started to take on a life of its own. All of a sudden, people started to pay attention to how they were feeling after listening to the song. Due to its positive, empowering and uplifting melody, words and beat, the song started spreading like wildfire.
All of a sudden, hundreds of YouTube videos from countries around the world started to pop up left and right, with the song “Happy” taking center stage as people danced in flash-mob-style gatherings.
In these videos, thousands of people gather in song and dance to broadcast to the world that they are choosing to be “Happy.” Many of these videos open by letting the viewer know immediately that whatever country the video was filmed in, its people are choosing to be happy.
Now, at first this may seem trivial. However, when thousands of people from many different countries are moved to come together in a harmonious way to declare to the world that they are choosing to be happy (in this case through song)—that is something important to take notice of!
How Did It Happen?
Why did the song stay under the radar when the movie original debuted back in the summer of 2013?
And why are millions of people around the world just now starting to discover the song?
The simplest answer to these questions is that we were not ready before—but now we are.
See, the song “Happy” is a symbol that represents the shift in the collective consciousness that has taken place in just these last few months. People have had enough of things that promote separation and fear.
That’s why “Happy” is now sitting at the top of the music charts all over the world.
Citizens of the world are awakening to who they really are. They have strongly chosen to reclaim their power. This song is an exclamation point for how people all around the world are feeling.
It’s all about supply and demand. People are realizing that what they were conditioned to demand as their supply for so long is just no longer fulfilling them.
The Demand for Joy
People want something real, and now they are demanding it. “Happy” is one of many recent confirmations that is showing us proof that the demand is changing.
There are many songs, books, websites, concepts and works of art that are now empowering and inspiring people all around the world to create more joy in their lives.
Here are some helpful, easy ways to connect with the Happiness Revolution:
• Understanding that happiness is a choice, and is not determined by people, places, things or circumstances
• Making peace with the mind/being gentle with ourselves
• Laughing daily • Moving the body through exercise, dance or sports activities at least 3 to 4 times per week for at least 15 to 30 minutes at a time
• Performing random acts of service and kindness
• Spending time in nature
• Connecting with a heart-centered community/friends
• Being creative/artistic
• Creating an environment that inspires and awakens joy (using beautiful fragrances, colors, textures)
• Clearing out clutter
• Releasing the unrealistic expectations we’ve placed on ourselves and others
• Focusing on making ourselves and our well-being an ultimate priority
• Expressing ourselves freely in a healthy and positive way (no longer holding things in)
The Vanishing Gates
For many years, people seemed to only be able to reach a certain level of success when it came to manifesting their hearts’ desires.
Even though great strides would be made from time to time, it seemed as if there were invisible gates that prevented us from going all the way to where we really wanted to be.
All of that is now changing, and the invisible gates are vanishing. The limitations that we had placed on ourselves and on humanity as a whole are dissolving.
This is allowing us to go all the way when it comes to experiencing the greatest desires of our hearts. We no longer have to settle.
For those of us who may have invested many hours into relationships, projects or businesses that just didn’t seem to go anywhere, things have or will soon begin to turn around.
Sometimes when we put so much time and effort into something that really doesn’t go anywhere, it leaves us feeling completely exhausted and disheartened. The idea of even trying again can feel daunting and out of the question.
Know that it’s completely normal to feel this way. It can be alleviated with some good rest and relaxation.
Manifesting Our Desires
With the gates vanishing, this is the time make ourselves available to manifesting our hearts’ desires. Making ourselves more available requires a few simple things:
The first step is to get clear on what our truest desires are.
The second step is to ask for what we want. For example, we could ask something like “Dear Universe, what would it take for me to be more open and available to experiencing my deepest and truest heart’s desires with ease? Show me.”
And the final step is simply to take inspired action when the opportunities to experiencing our hearts’ desires begin presenting themselves to us. People all around the world are now realizing that they have the right to live out their hearts’ desires. Time to celebrate!
