Make a joyful noise

The purpose of my blog is to show how to be joyful in your everyday life. I just read an article on Oprah's site called "Awakening Joy" that has awesome ideas that are so simple to do yet so powerful and effective.

One of my favorite suggestions in the article is to sing. Sing in your car, the shower, WHEREVER. Just make a joyful noise (isn't that in the Bible?). You don't have to join the church choir to sing. Just SING whenever you get the chance, and your mind and body will thank you!

When I do sing, I take it a step further and sing happy songs. I even made a CD of happy songs I already had available to me.

Here's my HAPPY playlist:
  • All I wanna do - Sheryl Crow
  • Light in your eyes -" "
  • Good day sunshine - The Beatles
  • Walking on sunshine - Katrina & the Waves
  • Shiny happy people - REM
  • Beautiful day - U2
  • High Tide Low Tide - Bob Marley
  • Fidelity - Regina Spektor
  • Groove is in the Heart - Deee-lite
  • Smile - Madeleine Peyroux
What are some of your happy songs?

Stop resistant thought through meditation

"That's why so many of us teach meditation. Because when you stop thought, you stop resistant thought. When you stop resistant thought, then you let it in."

~ Abraham-Hicks

This quote was in my daily thought from Abraham-Hicks a few weeks ago and reminded me why meditation is so important and useful. It helps you to stop attracting what you don't want and allows you to quiet your mind so you may be in the vortex and attract all that you want into your life.

"Be still and know that I am God."
~Psalms 46:10
