PURE UNADULTERATED JOY!!!!
Yesterday I let my dog Chucky run in the grass, under a tree with lots of sticks without his harness and leash. I sat back on a step and just watched him be a dog. He was rolling in the grass (of course AFTER I bathed him 🙃). The look on his face was bliss, joy, ecstasy, and elation!
As I was watching him, I felt my eyes well up with tears. I was experiencing those feelings right along with him! I lost that feeling after about 30 seconds because my mind was racing to something else, which made me sad. I reminded myself that I am allowed to go back to feeling what Chucky was feeling. He must have sensed that because he ran to me and smiled, wrestled with me until I was back in his world then ran away to attack another stick 😁.
We were out there for about 30 minutes but to me, it felt so much longer. I so enjoyed those feelings; pure and unadulterated! I felt deeply at peace at that moment. It was just so simple yet sad that I had to tell myself that it was ok to feel that way. 😔
What I am learning as I walk my spiritual path is that health and homeostasis as human beings are peace, joy, and all those other feel-good emotions. When we experience depression, anxiety, physical illness, or physical pain we are experiencing dis-ease and are out of balance with our original design. 😕
When we find ourselves feeling at dis-ease, we need to remind ourselves that we were born and DESERVE balance and homeostasis. It is easy to say but sometimes hard to get to. We have a choice and free will in every second of our lives even if it doesn't feel like it. The other thing we have is help, all we have to do is ask.💝
Our higher power, goddess, god, angels, source, spirit guides, or whatever you call this larger energy is always with us and always willing to help, we just need to ask! 👼💫
I hope you have experiences of unadulterated joy in your life at times! Love you💖
