There are so many modern-world influences working against happiness. And yet, as divine beings in human form, happiness is our natural state.

I’m not saying we must be deliriously happy in every moment of our lives. But surely we can be a lot happier than most of us are. So why aren’t we?

Here are some of my spirit guides’ suggestions for finding and keeping more happiness in our lives:

  • Embrace uncertainty. You might as well, since you cannot escape it.
  • Look for certainty in the only place you will ever find it—within.
  • Keep your awareness fully focused in this present moment. It’s all you have anyway.
  • Know you are safe and secure right here, right now.
  • Count your blessings.
  • Appreciate and give thanks for all the blessings you have in your life. You have far more blessings than you think.
  • See the beauty in yourself, others, and the world around you. There is far more beauty and good than there is ugliness and bad.
  • Give up your obsession with time. Just relax and flow with life.
  • If you give up your obsession with time, you will grow younger and healthier with the passing years.
  • Spend some quiet time by yourself every day. Meditation is a great way to do this.
  • Meditation will make you younger and healthier.
  • Give up fear, worry, and doubt. Meditation is a great way to do that.
  • Remember who you really are—spirit in a human body. That awareness will draw you closer to your spirit.
  • Strive to see the world through the eyes of your spirit. You’ll be amazed at the new sights you will behold.
  • The present moment is your gateway to happiness and your access to the world of spirit.
  • Know you deserve to be happy.
  • Above all, know all is well.
