Have you ever said or thought you want to experience more joy in your life or business and then got yourself caught up worrying about money or feeling overwhelmed by the many things on your to-do list?
Not exactly joy enhancing, right?
Well, if this has ever happened to you, then you are definitely not the only one.
Why not, you might ask?
Well, worry is a habit. And in order to change any habit, guess what?
You must make new choices and back those new choices up with new actions until you have created a new habit.
As Abraham-Hicks says:
You can’t worry your way to joy. You joy your way to joy.
Worrying has been passed down through the generations as a way of showing that you care. The more you care about someone or something, the more you might find yourself worrying. Even though you probably realise this is not an optimal use of your energy, we’re dealing with some deeply ingrained habits here.
You can change a habit in a nano second. Maintaining that as your new habit, though, tends to require consistent implementation. Hence the power of 40 day programs.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing 3 simple ways to bring more joy and abundance into your life and business.
Let’s start with the first one:
When you choose to align with what is most joyful for you in each moment, you shift your energy. It starts with a shift in perspective, which then starts to shift your entire energy field and hence your experiences of life.
Choosing to let joy be your guide is an invitation to wake up to the fullness of who you are. It’s an invitation to ditch the limitations you’ve ever agreed to live by, most of which have been held within your unconscious database.
One way this can play out is that the moment you’ve committed to fully BE YOU, then before too long you start finding all these so-called shadow aspects emerging. You know, everything that you would label as NOT joyful. This is GOOD NEWS!
In order for you to emBODY joy in all aspects of life and business, you must be willing to let go of:
1. holding on to wanting control
2. seeking security outside yourself
3. abdicating power onto anyone or anything else and thereby denying yourSelf from being a powerful expression of Source and trusting your inner guidance.
A very simple and easy way to start shifting your energy to align with your inner JOY channel, is to set aside 10 minutes a day to dial in to the FEELING state of joy.
