A couple of months ago I posted a thought on my Twitter feed about spreading happiness. It went like this: “Want to create more happiness? Think of what makes you happy, then smile while around people. Doesn’t even need to be at someone.”
The idea centers on the idea that when we think of something that makes us happy, it places us in an energy rich environment. When we’re in an energy rich environment, things change.
I like to visualize it like being in a higher orbit. When we are up high, we can see more of what’s around and below us. Our perspective changes.
Being able to see “more” allows us to be more creative, receptive and resourceful to solve current challenges. It also raises our vibration which impacts the energy of others.
In 1998, I read Power vs Force by David Hawkins, PhD. He wrote about how our individual vibrations impact the vibration of all those around us.
So when we elevate our own vibration, we elevate other’s vibration as well. This is pretty obvious when we see someone laughing or really expressing happiness – it’s contagious.
After posting this Tweet, I received interesting private messages with people sharing their outcomes from this practice.
Here are a few for you to enjoy, too!
“Liz, I saw your post. When I thought of the happiness from the birth of my daughter and smiled on the commuter train, people were “nice”. Like really nice. Maybe it was me being in that frame of mind yet it felt like the people around me were different.”
“I thought of my dad who recently passed as he was an amazing man in my life. I was really in the moment as I was walking down the street and when I saw a couple of elderly men out for a stroll heading into the park, I let my smile go. They both lit up. Their walk changed, their posture changed. As I walked by, they both stopped, looked at me, then at each other, then at me again. I shrugged, kept in my moment and kept going. It was a connection though. When I looked back, they had stopped and were still looking at me… With wrinkly smiles on their faces. I really felt good. I wonder how what I did impacted them in their day.”
I urge you to do the same and I’d love to know what happens for you. You might end up expressing the Best Version of You.
