Increase Your Level of Bliss

time to thriveI just love it when the Universe whispers messages to me over and over again.  Recently the message has been, “Up your tolerance for bliss.”  It is a backwards way to think, really.  Bliss isn’t something you imagine should need tolerating.  But the truth is, it can be an intense ride.

This messages was first something I felt.  About a year ago I had a couple of back to back months when I experienced extreme levels of happiness, felt like I was in my zone, and detected intense waves of ecstasy coursing through my veins.  I was hitting the mark on so many of my dreams and life was just plain good!

I identified all that as bliss.  If I had been any happier, I might have exploded.  I wondered if I had maxed out on the amount of happiness I could handle or if perhaps I might be able to adjust my inner bliss threshold so that I might eventually withstand even more.

Months later while listening to the audiobook Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity by Edwene Gaines, I heard her mention that this was an important aspect of prosperity.  She suggested that to follow through with calling more abundance into your life you would need to be able to stretch your capacity for bliss.  Later that same day, I opened one of Danielle LaPorte’s Truthbombs only to find that exact message staring at me from the computer screen.

Ah, I thought.  This message is for me. And so, I am setting out on a journey to consciously increase my tolerance for bliss.

“How does one do that?” you ask.  Indeed,  I am beginning by asking myself that same thing!  Curiosity is a great tool for creating life. I believe that my creative spirit must surely know, and so I have invited it to show me the way.

Journey to Increased Bliss

To help me stay on that path, I have chosen the word THRIVE as my word for the year.  I imagine that when one is in a state of thriving they are experiencing levels of BLISS.  Perhaps the two words are sisters!

The Blessing of a Year

2014 banner

I love this year, this 2014.  I think that is a strange thing to feel, though…love for a year that has yet to take off. But perhaps what I really feel is deep, abiding hope and compelling possibility.

I felt this same way at the beginning of 2013.  My imagination was alive with amazing projects that were ripe for springing to life. But the year had other things in store for me. It held the secret of forced healings in areas of my life I had pushed aside as I charged forward in my career as a Life Coach and Creativity Guide.

As I write this, I am tempted to throw all my realizations, wisdom, and stories out for you to witness. But this year has been so personal and so magical that sharing it feels like shining a bright spotlight on something better served by cradling it up close to the shadowy protection of a subtle internal light….the light of one’s own heart.

The important part to take from my year, if you want to take anything at all, is that those shadowy, difficult times when life throws challenges your way can be the answers to the wishes you have been making for yourself with that still, quiet voice you can barely hear.  We all have those deep yearnings whispered when we look at the places within ourselves that cry out for peace or release.  Sometimes growing into all we want for ourselves must come from personal healing and soul searching.

life is a journey

And so, for me 2013 brought huge shifts into deeper understanding, forgiveness, acceptance, and celebration through paths I never would have called in consciously.  But am grateful for none the less.

And 2014?

It will wrap up some of those realizations and help me put a bow on the big package filled with 2013’s blessing, but will also leave space for me to pick up and re-examine those original amazing projects.  Some will fall away, having lost their energy, others will rise to the top for me to cultivate with a new, inspired perspective.

In these first days of the new year, I welcome the balance of both.  I am still toying with this fresh place while reaching for the great heights I see myself shooting for.

I hope this in-between time finds you contemplating what last year meant for you while throwing seeds broadly into the months ahead.

Happy New Year, Creative Spirits!  

May it be blessed by all it brings your way!
