Do you ever ask yourself these questions?
Well, I do and decided to open my channel this morning and, in about 15 minutes, downloaded the following message for myself:
Lisa: Who am I? Why am I here?
Beings of Love and Light: You are a divine being here to open the world to the divine that runs through us all. You are here as a manifested angel to hold people close for them to see that love is all around. You are here to transcribe the messages from the Universe to help support the earth people on their quest to live their best lives. You are here as an angel of mercy to help people as they transition to the other side as well as to help those who remain here to cope with their loss. You are here as a money magistrate. To show the world how money is nothing more than an energetic tool that can be used for good and evil. And that the money that comes to those are based much more on their thoughts than on their actions. You are here to love your children and have appreciation for all the material things that has come your way due] to your thoughts and experiences. You are here to embrace the love of others to know that you are good enough always and forever. You are here to help those who suffer from loneness and misunderstanding from the harsh society that tells them they are not good enough. You are here as an emissary of the galactic order to help those who are lost and confused by their experience here on earth, as it was not as it was intended. You are here to give grace and ease to those who suffer from depression and anxiety around their unworthiness. You are here to help support those who have wealth and have no richness in their lives. You are here to help all those who come to you for guidance, acceptance and love. You are here to be You and to help those who can’t seem to find themselves. You are here to be that one person who will save their life to go on and to find their own way. You are here to help those who are lost and can’t find themselves. You have an important role in raising the awareness of spirituality on this earth plane and you must not give up or step back any further. You must step up and allow yourself to be seen.
Lisa: How do I do this?
Beings of Love and Light: You can do this by opening yourself up to being seen and being open about your mission. Show exactly who you are and your tribe will appear. Stop hiding and start sharing your gifts. NOW! We are here to support you in any way you need from us.
Lisa: Who are You?
Beings of Love and Light: WE are the being of Love and Light. Start by putting together some live events and watch them fill up. It is right in front of you. Do it now.
Lisa: Thank you, I love you!
Beings of Love and Light: And we love you and are here for you always!

A big part of leading a life of happiness is being able to stick to your guns when you need to, and not bending over backwards just to be a people pleaser.
Now, this does NOT mean refusing to help others, being unkind, or anything of the sort – there’s nothing wrong with pleasing others. The problems happen when your concern for pleasing others comes at the expense of your own principles, your own happiness, or gets in the way of other things you need to accomplish for your own life.
The unfortunate reality is that there will always be people who try to take advantage of others (and some people who will without even realizing it), and if you allow yourself to be manipulated – sometimes by your own internal desire for acceptance – you’ll eventually be doing so many things for others, you stop paying attention to your own needs.
It’s fulfilling to help others, but can be very stressful to allow others to demand support from you. It’s all about making choices that satisfy the greatest good – helping others should not become such a burden that it impacts your ability to live a happy life.
Similarly, a pattern of “people pleasing” may prevent you from speaking out in opposition to something you disagree with – and if you’re not standing up for what you believe in, it’s going to take a toll on your self-worth. Staying close-mouthed just to avoid rocking the boat will ultimately turn into regret.
It should go without saying that upsetting people on purpose is NOT the path to personal happiness – but being prepared to navigate a situation where you can’t please everyone (and not feeling guilty about it) will go a long way in helping you keep your head held high, even when you have to be the bearer of bad news.
The best approach is to strike a balance between what’s good for you and what’s good for the people around you. Total selfishness is not the answer, obviously, but neither is letting yourself become a doormat.
There’s that old saying about taking the same actions over and over, but expecting different results. While that expression is generally used as a “definition for insanity,” I think we can look at the same issue in terms of happiness – and find just as many problems.
Think about people who really struggle to find happiness. One of the defining characteristics in a life of stress, anxiety, and unhappiness is repeat behavior – and consistently unpleasant results.
People allow themselves to stay in toxic relationships or work jobs that wear them down day after day. They spend time with people who damage their self-esteem, make consistently poor choices when it comes to food and exercise, and take on responsibilities that cause undue stress without any sort of satisfaction.
All of those behaviors are just like the “definition of insanity” mentioned above – it’s maintaining a cycle of behavior, but somehow expecting the outcome to change for the better.
Of course people want to be happy, but when their decisions and actions consistently prevent some of the basic needs for happiness – what do they expect?
Does this sound familiar? We’ve all got bad habits that can act as roadblocks to our happiness, and it’s up to use to identify them, figure out ways to change them, and move well past the barriers we set up for ourselves.
Small changes can often bring us closer and closer to a life of happiness and fulfillment, but those changes have to stick! We can’t keep making the same mistakes over and over again – otherwise we’ll never make any progress at all!
Instead of just going through the same motions day after day, we should all be looking for the decisions and actions that are responsible for our feelings of unhappiness. After all, basically everything we do is a choice – from the people we spend time with to what we do at any given moment throughout the day. We’re constantly making choices, so why keep making the decisions that ultimately lead to unhappiness?
We can break out of these cycles, and we absolutely should do everything in our power to get away from damaging decision making. Making consistently dissatisfying choices is a fast track to unhappiness – and the very definition of “insanity!”
If you’ve never tried meditating, I can’t recommend it enough! The lasting effects on your personal well being are just so massive, and this is something you can do in your own home – without spending a dime or even going out of your way to prepare or set up.
Meditation encompasses a rather large portion of different, more specific practices, but at its root, meditating is about relaxation, controlling your mind and body, and clearing away the cluttered thoughts that cause so much tension in all of our lives.
And people have long understood the benefits that meditation can bring in terms of an overall sense of calm, better sleep, relieving physical tension in the body, and a lasting sense of peace – but studies have shown that meditation actually helps the brain reduce stress reactions and increases brain activity in areas associated with compassion, self-awareness, and happiness!
Meditating even one single time makes these positive effects all the more apparent – the good vibes and calm sensations stick with you throughout the day, and as it becomes a part of your normal routine, these feelings of calm acceptance and harmony with the world around you only last longer.
The same sensations of relaxation and oneness actually prime our brains for increased empathy, which means we have an easier time connecting with others (another important element of happiness). Not only does this happen in the first few minutes after meditating, regular meditation can also change your brain chemistry in a long-term way, rewiring your brain for increased happiness!
You don’t even have to take my word for it. Try it out and see!
There are plenty of great meditation aids available out there, that will walk you through steps to relaxation and controlled breathing, and once you’ve got a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to do it all on your own.
Just give it a shot, and I promise that you’ll immediately see the benefits!
The folks at SoulPancake have done it again! In a video based on a study conducted by the University of California – Riverside, they wanted to show a link between happiness and success – but not the link you might be thinking.
Instead of the commonly assumed association, where “successful” people have higher levels of happiness, this looks at the exact opposite relationship: that being happy actually leads to success.
The video presents a basic experiment: two groups are given the same problem-solving test, but one group is given several “happiness affecting” cues to put them in a positive mood before beginning the test. The experiment found that the “happy group” was, on average, faster at solving the problem.
Now, this shows at least a correlation between a good mood and problem solving skills (though there is no way to determine the problem solving abilities of the participants before taking the test), but it isn’t too difficult to see the larger implications of this idea.
When people are happy, they tend to have a more optimistic outlook, think more clearly, and have higher self-esteem. All of these traits associated with a general sense of happiness are also the traits of achievers – people who are work toward their goals with confidence and determination.
So, if happiness leads to success, shouldn’t the focus being on finding and maintaining happiness?
Note: true happiness is not fleeting. It doesn’t come from material objects or monetary rewards. It doesn’t come from praise, or even from other people. It has to start within!
When you can harness your own internal happiness, as the study and SoulPancake experiment found, you approach problems with confidence. But it goes far beyond problem solving – the optimism and self-esteem that accompany an overall attitude of happiness are key components to success in any endeavor!
