Happiness

Nithya Shanti, a wonderful spiritual teacher from India, gave me an early Christmas Gift this year I would like to share with you.

He said: “Say 108 times a day: “Every cell in my body is happy.””

How simple!! And how profound. Since we’re focusing on this idea - that every cell in our body is happy -- the body has to respond!! Happy cells are healthy cells, and healthy cells make a healthy body.

I’ve shared this mantra with a few people since I got it. One of them told me last night at our Candlelight Gathering that after using the mantra for two days, he slept well for the first time in weeks. A woman who’s done it everyday for 4 days looked younger! Happiness is healing in more ways than I imagined!

I use this mantra after my morning meditation. (Sometimes I sing it!) Yesterday I thought: ‘I have to think of something simple like that for prosperity’ but nothing I thought of resonated the way this one has. I suddenly realized it was because if every cell in my body is happy, then I’m not stressed about anything!! If I’m not stressed that means every thing in every one of my bodies – (Spiritual, mental, emotional, physical) is working wonderfully!!

The other thing I’ve noticed is that it is impossible to say this mantra 108 times without FEELING happy! Maybe it’s the intention set forth, maybe it’s the energetics in the word ‘happy’, maybe it’s because I believe it will work – or all of the above. What I do know is that “what we contemplate we become” – so why not contemplate happiness!

This is your holiday present from me – it’s simple, and it’s fun!
I am so grateful to Nithya Shanti for giving us this gift!

SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT

Gratefully I acknowledge the Spirit of Joy within all of us. I can feel It in the air, and hear It in the sounds around us. I see It in the atmosphere surrounding us. It is The Divine in Its natural state.

I now accept that I can choose happiness at any moment. I declare that my life is filled with joy. Everything I do today is to promote this Joy in others. This is my Gift from the Universe and I share it with delight.

Gratefully I celebrate the holidays and all that they bring. I focus on Love, Peace, Family and Joy. I release these words into spiritual law, knowing they are embodied well, and so it is.

What a beautiful mantra! I do have a question. How do you count axactly 108 times, especially when a person has cognitive difficulties?
Thank you so much!
