How to be ‘Happy’ all through the day

December 7th, 2014 in Blog

I have the song “Happy” as the ringtone on my phone. I’ve had it for about 8 months, and I have to tell you, it’s been life changing. You know how you get a phone call and the caller ID comes up and you see who it is and if it’s someone you’re not anxious to talk to, or worse, someone that you know is calling about something you don’t want to hear about, how your instant reaction is something like “ick, I don’t want to take this call, but I have to take this call, and I can’t avoid this any longer, yada, yada, yada?”

That whole reaction thing simply doesn’t happen to me anymore. No matter who is calling, no matter what I ‘know’ they’re going to tell me, I hear that music and I’m just happy. I actually think someone could call me and tell me my house just burned down and (after I knew Daisy and Katie Kat were alright) I would say something like, “wow, that’s interesting”. No matter who it is on the other end, I’m ‘Happy’ to talk to them. And if it’s someone I love and know I’m going to enjoy talking to, then I’m REALLY HAPPY.

Now I’ve just discovered that I’m actually waiting a little bit to answer the phone so that I can listen to as much of the song as possible without the call going into voicemail. The other day, I was in a restaurant and the phone rang and the song started so I quickly answered it. My friend on the other end said “Wow, you answered on the first ring, you never answer on the first ring”. I realized I’m letting the song do it’s magic each time, and it works every time.

I mean, listen to the lyrics:

Because I’m happy…
Come along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy…
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy…
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy…
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

Can you imagine what it would be like to always feel like a room without a roof?

Just constantly expanding?

My heart fills up every time I hear that.

It continues to be so amazing to me how some small thing can make such a difference in how we’re feeling and our general mood. When we are happy, it’s a whole lot easier to stay happy. And think about it, happiness and sadness and joy and grief are all just energy coursing through us. They feel good or they feel bad, but the wonderful part is, we can learn how to utilize them and move them and make them bigger when they feel good; similarly, when they start to feel bad, we can spend some time moving that energy back into the good feeling space.

I spent 5 days at Thanksgiving with my brother and his wife at their home, which is on Lake Eufala in Oklahoma (a really beautiful spot), plus my niece and nephew who are amazing people (both attorneys). They brought their children – my nephew has a 10 year old son and my niece has two little boys, ages 20 months and 4 years. You can imagine the energy that was flowing through this bunch!

Shortly after my brother Steve picked me up at the airport in Tulsa and we started the 1-1/2 hour ride, someone called me and my ‘Happy’ ringtone went off. My brother went nuts. He told me that Jack (the 20 month old) is barely talking but when he gets into the car he says “Happy”, which translates into “I want you to play the ‘Happy’ song over and over on your car stereo”. Steve says there have been times when he’s played the song 10 times in a row for Jack. Steve and I arranged that as soon as Jack was on my lap, Steve would call me, the ‘Happy’ ring ton would play and we would watch Jack’s reaction.

Well, of course, little Jack’s eyes got huge and for the rest of the week-end he would see me and suddenly say “Happy” and I would play the song for him (usually at least twice). The music seemed to have an almost hypnotic effect on him, his eyes would literally glaze over. At one point in one of the evenings, I was holding him and singing the song into his ear for over an hour and he finally went to sleep in my arms. Oh my goddess, talk about flowing pure, positive energy.

This is not an advertisement for the ringtone, ‘Happy’, but if that song gets to you (like it gets to me and Jack), you might want to consider it! Or some other song or music that really moves you. To turn what is often an annoyance into a joyful experience has been a game changer for me. It might be for you too. Try it.

And speaking of game changers and living your life in joy and ‘Happy’, if that’s not happening for you, you might want to think about doing something bigger and deeper than just getting a new ringtone. Of course, I’m talking about doing a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. It is the fastest, most elegant and perfect way to bring you out of disconnection and funk and back into the connection and joy that is your birthright. It’s time for you to get ‘Happy’.

Wishing you a week filled with ‘Happy’.

Many Blessings,

Courtney says “Sedona Soul Adventures is like a recipe for a happy soul”

“Sedona Soul Adventures is like a recipe for a happy soul. Each practitioner served an important purpose during the journey, and much like cooking a special sauce or soup, the ingredients mix together sometimes so perfectly you cannot pinpoint a particular flavor, but you know it’s finished. There are so many times I’m trying to recall one specific ‘a-ha’ moment and it seems to meld into one fabulous, soul-changing experience. It’s just what the soul ordered! Thank you!”
