Frequency of Joy

There is a frequency of joy that is always there. That is available to everyone all the time. We sometimes get a glimpse of it when we see the sun rise or set. When we see our children laugh and smile. When we are in awe of nature. When we glow from being in the flow, doing what we do best, naturally, easily. A special moment, celebration, or achievement.    


I thought it was something that came once in a while. One of those special moments in life you hoped would last or come again soon. Instead I learned it is always there. Always available to us. In darkness and in light. Regardless of our life situation or current emotions or circumstances it is there.


I first heard of joy as a frequency when I read that people deep in depression can still find joy. I thought if they could find joy in depression I can too. But where is it and how do I access it?


I learned that joy is easy to find as you awaken each morning. It can be accessed in the moment between sleep and the light of the new day. There is a special place or dimension that is not far from our connection to the source. The source of all love and joy in the universe.


I began to look for it each morning when I awoke. I woke with an inner feeling of well-being. Joy was in my belly and tingled throughout my body. I would lay for a moment in bed feeling the joy. Each morning I awaken half asleep and half awake and feel joy. Most days it faithfully appears. When it’s doesn’t I breathe in through my nose and take a breath. It enters through my nose, throat, lungs, chest, into my belly and moves to all the extremities of my body. My heart opens. The joy then floats outside my body and connects to the energy in the universe.

What is Inspiration? How do I get some?

Inspiration is a calling—it just happens without any initiation. It comes upon you. It pops in your head. It whispers in your ear. It gets you out of bed. It causes you to act. You just do it. It delivers an energy and enthusiasm that is palpable. You feel compelled in the moment. It does not come from the mind.

Everything You Want Is Downstream

There are a number of variations of the River of Life parable, used in religious teachings, life coaching, business trainings, etc.—all didactic in nature, illustrating an instructive lesson or principle. I find the essence of this parable especially insightful, not only on a personal level, but in my work as a leadership consultant. Here is…

The One Thing You Must Do

“There is one thing in this world which you must never forget to do. If you forget everything else and not this, there is nothing to worry about, but if you remember everything else and forget this, then you will have done nothing your whole life.”
