One of the things we have been exploring this week (exploring vs. trying to make happen) is ‘How to Wake Up Happy.’  We’ve kicked ourselves in the tush as we “Puzzled?” our way through the topic.  Today, Our Lady of Weight Loss and Janice Taylor (that’s me), your resident positarian, offer up a platter full of happiness, miracles and #blessings.

These ten #blessings, in the form of quotes about #blessings, will help you to rediscover your power to invoke blessing and affirm your interconnectedness to life; which, in turn, will help you to wake up happy.

10 Quotes:  Manifesting #Blessings

It would be lovely if we could rediscover our power to bless one another. When a blessing is invoked, it changes the atmosphere. Some of the plenitude flows into our hearts from the invisible neighborhood of loving-kindness. In the light and reverence of a blessing, a person or situation becomes illumined in a completely new way.

It is ironic that so often we continue to live like paupers though our inheritance of spirit is so vast. The quiet eternal that dwells in our souls is silent and subtle; in the activity of blessing it emerges to embrace and nurture us. Let us begin to learn how to bless one another. Whenever you give a blessing, a blessing returns to enfold you.  ~ John O’Donohue

When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace, love, prosperity, happiness… all the good things. ~ Maya Angelou

Sometimes we focus so much on what we don’t have that we fail to see, appreciate, and use what we do have! ~ Jeff Dixon

A blessing is much more than just an act. It is an affirmation of our interconnectedness; it is the creation of an opportunity for the power of that connectedness to pour through into our lives and the lives of others.  So in practicing the art of blessing, we are really practicing being connected. We are practicing how to discover and express those parts of ourselves that innately understand that connectedness and the wholeness that emerges from it.  ~ David Spangler

The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings. ~  Eric Hoffer

May we be strengthened with the understanding that being blessed does not mean that we shall always be spared all the disappointments and difficulties of life. ~ Heber J. Grant

God gave you a gift of 84,600 seconds today. Have you used one of them to say thank you? ~ William Arthur Ward

Some people come in our life as blessings. Some come in your life as lessons. ~ Mother Teresa

Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. If you don’t, you will leak away your innate contentment. It’s easy enough to pray when you’re in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainments. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

To witness miracles unfold in your experience, count your blessings and be thankful. Perceived small blessings accumulate to be the most powerful.” ~ T.F. Hodge

#IamTrying … to Blow the Fat Cells Out of Your Mind

Our Lady Lives In Possibility by Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Artist

Our Lady Lives In Possibility by Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Artist

Recently, I was chewing the fat with one of my star clients (you’re all stars), Millie (the names have been changed…) who’d successfully and permanently removed over 30 pounds two years ago.  She’d contacted me because the circumstances of her life had changed and with these changes, she felt herself reverting to her old ways, which would inevitably lead to her weighing more.

One of the old ways that had seeped back into Millie’s way of being was a certain defeated tone.  During our session she said, “Every morning I tell myself that I’m going to try to get back on the wagon…”  And, “I keep trying, but …”  And then, “I’m going to try to remember…”

Try, try, try!  Millie was using the most sabotaging word in the English language – and therefore in the Battle of the Bulge!

When you “try,” the implicit possibility of failure is always there, hanging heavy. You’ve left yourself a loophole that leads straight to a slippery slope.

As the great Yoda said, “Do or do not… there is no try.”  If you don’t believe me, or Yoda for that matter, then place a pen on the table.  Try to pick it up.  Go ahead and see what happens.  You either do pick it up or you don’t pick it up.  There is no try!

Happily, I am here to inform you that there are other words and phrases that you can use instead of “try” that have a positive association to them.

Eliminate the word ‘try’ from your vocabulary; and substitute the words –
Explore
Discover
Learn
Search
Investigate
Find out more about . . .

Tune in to yourself. When you hear yourself using the word “try,” substitute one of the above words and notice how the meaning and feel of the whole sentence changes.  Notice how your energy shifts and how things become possible.

You can now explore and discover how to easily and effortlessly move “into the lite!”

Do or do not … there truly is no try.

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: 9 Steps to Waking Up Happy!!!

kick in the tush club 1:2 logoJump out of bed, open your window, and scream with passion!! “I’m ALIVE!!!!!”  Because how we start our day is an important and yet overlooked part of Permanent Fat Removal.

Truly, if you wake up feeling like c*** …. well, let’s just say not the greatest … how are you going to muster-up enough energy to make the right choices, in food and in the other parts of your life?

Today’s Kick in the Tush focuses on HOW TO WAKE UP the right way, on the right side of bed, all pleased about life and ready to go!!!

The SECRET to WAKING UP.

You cannot WAKE UP! unless you get the right amount of sleep. So, let’s start with sleep.  How are you going to ‘create’ the best method to get the appropriate amount of sleep?

Suggested Evening Steps.

1. Go to bed at a reasonable hour.

2. Set your internal as well as external alarm for a reasonable wake up time.

3. Turn the TV off.  It is not helpful to add television talk to your dreams or thoughts.

4. Before you drift off into your restful and beautiful sleep state, set your intention for your sleep and waking states.  For instance, “Tonight I will sleep restfully. My dreams will be filled with beautiful imagery that will inspire me. I will remember my dreams. I will wake up well-rested, with a smile on my face and ready to go!”

Morning steps.

1. You are 25 times more open to suggestion as you wake. Pay attention to what thoughts first surface, and if these first thoughts are not helpful, simply turn them around. Repeat your positive thought(s) a few times.  Hold on to those good feelings for a moment or two.

2. See the thought. Imagine carrying this thought with you throughout your day.

3. Now, as you leave the bed … Set a morning ritual.  Perhaps a morning stretch, or the sun salutation, or listening to uplifting music or writing in your journal.

4. Then take a look at your calendar.  See it, experience it as multiple time slots that are overflowing with fabulous opportunities and possibilities.  Explore what’s possible.

5. One more positive thought. An affirmation if you will. “Today is a great day, filled with opportunity and joy!

Puzzled? Can You Wake Up Happy?

Wake up Happy by Janice Taylor, Happiness Coach

Wake up Happy by Janice Taylor, Happiness Coach

Last night, I set my internal alarm clock to “happy,” with an intention to “wake up happy.”  And when I did “wake up happy,” I smiled.

I smiled and then I took in a deep breath.  I created joyful thoughts and summarily sent them into the universe.

I don’t know how far they rippled out, but I suspect far enough for some of you to pick up the happy vibe.  Did you?  Pick up the happy vibe?  Did you feel the happy thoughts?

Today, as you click through this week’s Get Jiggy Weight Loss JigSaw Puzzle, “Wake Up Happy,” ask yourself:

“What is my intention for today?  How can I wake up happy?  How can I stay happy?”

Remember…Clicking burns calories and waking up happy curbs cravings!

Send the “Wake Up Happy-e-Card” to a friend!

#OneWord Thursday: #Money #Money #Money - Show Me the $$$
Hello Tushkateers,  This morning, I woke up with money on my mind.  It could be because this past Tuesday was April 15, Tax Day.  It could be because yesterday’s mail delivery was chock-full of bills.  Or, it could be because as I was drifting off to sleep, a lottery commercial was airing.  (
