Sunshine in Your Pocket

“YOU create your own reality and the universe is simply reflecting back to you the essence of how you’re feeling about it! Joseph Campbell said, ‘Follow your bliss.’ Abraham shows you where you left your compass. Your compass? Your emotions. They are your guide.

And, as such, no one—no institution, ‘movement,’ family or friends—not even Abraham—is better qualified to direct you. Your emotions are your very own GPS (Global Positioning System), a rock-steady, unfailing and unerring ‘personal navigational device’ to get you where you want to go.”


We are all constantly creating everything that we experience. And we can consciously design what we want by looking for and surrounding ourselves whenever possible with whatever makes us feel *good*. The point is to stay in positive energy.

Looking for a relationship? Who would you rather go out with … the person who’s constantly complaining or someone who is smiling? Who would you rather do business with … the miserable person stuck in the daily grind or the guy who radiates natural enthusiasm for what he does? Who would you rather partner with? Who would you rather befriend? Who would you rather *be*?

Immerse yourself in whatever makes you feel good and while you’re going about your business in a positive state, stuff starts happening. Good stuff.

Keeping yourself in positive vibration aligns you with the things you want to bring into your world. Make a list: What makes you smile? What makes you feel good? What brings you emotional sunshine?

Think sights, sounds, tastes, sensations …

  • Uptempo music
  • Apples and peanut butter
  • Funny movies
  • The doll that looks just like me
  • Bearhugs
  • Pretty colors
  • Mermaids
  • The beach
  • Birds chirping
  • Soft blankets
  • Sushi
  • Music from India
  • Making art
  • Drinks with friends
  • Dancing like a rock star
  • Singing when nobody is around
  • New flavors
  • Your inner goddess
  • Laughing
  • Open minded people
  • Taking pictures
  • Fairies
  • Angels in the flesh
  • Pretty blue skies
  • Learning
  • Teaming up with someone
  • Birthday cake
  • Candles
  • Collage
  • Moroccan style
  • Experiencing new adventures
  • Stars
  • Bunny rabbits
  • The sun on my face

Keep a list of “sunshine in your pocket” readily accessible at any given moment … and make sure to include something from your list into each and every day.

There’s a place that I go
That nobody knows
Where the rivers flow
And I call it home
And there’s no more lies
And the darkness is light
And nobody cries
there’s only butterflies

The sun is on my side
Take me for a ride
I smile up to the sky
I know I’ll be alright

– Natasha Bedingfield, “Pocketful Of Sunshine”
