Cultivate Joy! 😊

Life is a constant ebb and flow. Challenges attempt to disrupt our ease and peace, but as we intentionally cultivate joy, our energy steadies and positively shifts.

JOY = A source or cause of keen pleasure or delight; something exceptionally festive or satisfying.

What brings you joy in this moment?

What are you looking forward to that makes you smile? 😊

Take a minute to daydream and plan for joy. Allow yourself to be light and free.

“Let go of heaviness. Seek that which is light. Gravitate toward joy. Your soul and body will lead you, if only you will listen. Walk lightly. Speak and laugh lightly, as much as possible. Go lightly along your way.” ~ Melody Beattie

Who makes you laugh?

And, who do you make laugh?

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” ~ Audrey Hepburn

✨ I __________________ to cultivate more joy, play, and laughter into my life. ✨

Yes, YOU fill in the blank. It’s time to let go of heaviness, and gravitate toward JOY!

Do what you love, and be grateful.


JOY Meditation

Think of a time you experienced COMPLETE JOY. It may be a recent happening, or from the past. Picture it clearly in your heart and mind.

Feel all the emotions.

What sensations do you feel in the body?

Where do you feel these sensations?

Label your emotions with one word.

Label the sensations felt with one word.

Tuck these words deep into your memory account of joy.

Be filled with wonder, be touched by peace.


Spark to Flame, by Danna Faulds

May the peace of your being
leap from heart to heart
and mind to mind like a
wildfire in dry grass.
Through the simple act of
being present here and now,
may the peace that passes all
understanding be fanned
from spark to flame to
true illumination.
