Keeping happiness is very important to our well being, of our loved ones, the people around us (okay, the world).

When we are happy, we become powerful to share more love to everyone.

Choosing to always be happy in most circumstances as much as we can could be hard. Maybe. But not impossible.

As vibrational beings, we all have positive energy in us and a great part of being happy is keeping our positive energy only to ourselves.

So as the saying goes, never let anyone steal your joy and always leave some positivity for yourself while we uplift others with us.

As much as I’ve become a happier unicorn now, there are very few quite less happy days at times.

Especially when others’ emotions and energies take a toll on me.

Oh the joy of being an Empath. Just kidding.

So how do we deal with being an Empath and still be happy? Here’s how:

1. Grounding.

My first thought about grounding was: “what?” “I have to stay in my room forever? Like a punishment?”

Only when I read further that I realized this meant making yourself energetically and spiritually secure.

This is done by breathing deeply and visualizing your feet as becoming thick strong roots with little roots.

Let these roots grow deeply anchored in the ground. The roots firmly reaching down way below the ground.

Doing this creates a stable energy that cannot be shaken by negativity. You can also try this 10 minute guided grounding meditation.

Another way is to just walk bare foot on grass for 30 minutes. Really feel the grass and ground underneath your feet.

Focusing on the solidness of the surface with our feet helps to feel in touch with our own body, emotion and energy.

2. Shielding.

You can create an invisible barrier to keep your positive energy and deflect other people’s energy away from yours.

Imagine all the negativity like a dark smoke vacuumed away from your body and let it go away from you.

Let the smoke disappear into the light. See yourself filled with bright white light all over and put yourself in a bright white light of bubble.

Here’s an effective Guided Shielding meditation you can do.

3. Sending away.

If you feel a sudden surge of sadness, tiredness or anger, quietly ask these emotion and energies if they are yours.

You would feel a sudden lift from your body confirming it’s somebody else’s.

Send it away peacefully through your mind. Afterwards, send in as much love and the brightest white light to yourself and everyone where you are.

4. Recharge.

Spend a few minutes by yourself. Do something that makes you happy. Put your headphones on and listen to your favorite positive music. Read a good book.

Watch fave music artists or comedians because feeling inspired and laughter are so good vibes.

5. Choose people and social media newsfeed.

Spend more time being with grateful, inspiring, creative, successful, abundant, loving and kind people.

Stay away from too much News and drama on tv and avoid horror movies. Fill your social media with happy people.

Find an inspirational and successful person to tune into. I highly recommend watching Kathrin Zenkina, Tony Robbins, Gabriel Bernstein and Abraham Hicks on YouTube.

These people have the kind of vibe that uplifts your mind and soul. They are life changing.

6. Always be Kind.

Everyone is in their own journey and if life lessons aren’t enough, the least we can do is to be compassionate with one another.

We can always be courteous or just let others be. We can always pray for others to overcome anything that they might be going through and send loving thoughts their way.

When we are kind we break and interrupt the bad energy. Send peace, happiness and all good wishes to others.

Smile or be encouraging. Share. When you make people feel good around you, it fills you up too.

7. Identify mindfully.

Know the people who drain you out and spend less time and proximity with them.

Keep busy, focused and excited with blissful hobbies or meaningful goals.

8. Detach.

Sometimes there’s nothing else we can do than just listen, give comfort and be encouraging. Life is too beautiful and precious to be drained by sad stories.

At the end of the day, we all go through our own journey. Truth is, pain and struggles are necessary for growth.

It is up to all of us how we process our life lessons.

As an Empath, I really can’t help but care and help out. Especially when I felt an emotional connection with my loved ones.

I would be doing most of the chores just to let people around me rest. By the time I go to my room, I’m too exhausted to clean my own room or write my novel. I’d be left feeling regret.

I figured I could do this emotional cord cutting and yes, sometimes it is for my highest good to not care too much.

Cord cutting is the act of removing any emotional connection between others and yourself.

This way you won’t be bothered by others’ actions to you that much. It is best to do this through this Cord Cutting Guided meditation.

As Shakespeare puts it, “To be or not to be? That is the question. I say to be. Yes to being a powerfully compassionate Empath!

It means we can transform emotions and energies into positivity. It is a gift of being able to make negativity disappear into the light.

There is power in weakness.

What used to break me is now teaching me to be compassionate.

To all of us out there, now that we have these steps to keep our happiness, we can fully serve the world at our best in our own simple ways.

3 Care-Free Top Tips to Being Happy

The only kind of surrender you need to do is surrendering your resistance to change or letting go of your negative mindset.

What I mean by negative mindset is all of your limiting beliefs, past hurts and negative self talk.

When you surrender you gain freedom to heal and transform your life.

Your awesome life and desires are just right outside your comfort zone – hiding in the guise of your resistance.

We have been conditioned to feel safe and secure in our comfort. We stay within the things we were taught to be safe.

In deeper reality, this is a form of resistance that holds us back from having our desired life and reaching our highest potential.

Confessions of a so-called Control Freak

I was never the laid back kind. I used to like being prepared. I always did my assignments in advance.

I read chapters of my major subjects ahead of time. I had advanced school notes too.

I have everything ready for school from all my stuff, books, uniform, allowance and down to my food.

As a former Editor-in-Chief in College for the Shool newspaper, I also had the whole school paper concept, articles, photos, illustrations, editing and publishing process all planned out.

All the newpapers and literary folio under my term were published smoothly.

My first job was a homebased writer. I always finished all my writing jobs a day before deadline.

Being in control gave me a sense of pride, power and fulfillment. I felt safe.

But what if everything fails and falls apart? That I don’t know.

After homebased writing for 2 years, I needed to earn more. I went out into the world to get a ‘real’ job.

I passed the exams and interview like child’s play.

I did not expect that I would be bullied for doing well and for being the trainor’s favorite.

My fellow trainees made snarky remarks within earshot. They made disapproving facial expressions and it hurt.

I had no control over how my workmates treated me. I lost control of my expected results and I failed at my corporate job for the first time.

It hurt devastatingly. I was broken. I lost myself – the person who used to have everything together.

Work was stressful. The travel was tiring. I just put on whichever clothes I pull out of my closet.

Life became uncontrollable. I shut the world out.

I constantly had earphones on. I listened to music almost all the time. It was my barrier.

I hid behind books too. I made less interaction.

I was traumatized by bullying. So much that I kept myself on low profile at work. I made myself small just to appease any workmate.

I became skeptic and paranoid. I walked on eggshells because people might get at me. I had anxiety and cried all the time.

I was detached from everyone. This way, they can never hurt me. All these control that I’ve tried to hold on to never helped me. I was stuck living aimlessly.

 Happily in Surrender and Chilling Out

When I became a new mom, the emotional breakdown I had taught me complete surrender.

I rediscovered an in depth understanding of Law of Attraction. I started applying it in my life.

I also surrendered to Jesus. I read God’s Word. I prayed and talked to God all the time.

I had Bible study and watched The 700 Club Asia.

I sang and played worship songs. My workmates started asking me how I can still smile with all the stress. I simply answered: “I accepted Jesus in my life.”

I can’t imagine a life without God. My soul is healthy and full.

God gave me the right people, music, movies, food, books or audio books, videos, social media news feeds and everything I need.

Ever since I lived a Law of Attraction life, I became connected to the Universe and my higher self.

Things started looking up. I worked well and earned more.

I was peaceful and found inner happiness. Everything came at the right time.

I no longer worry if my plans didn’t seem to work out.

I know I am guided into something better. I am supported and protected. I am loved.

God who is also THE Universe wants me to be happy because I know how worthy I am.

I am God’s child. I am a child of the Universe. I am victorious in God’s love. We all are.

My life has never been happier.

Now who’s ready for the million dollar or pesos (any currency, really. Just Kidding.) question?

How do we surrender?

1.Visualize. Wake up saying silently to yourself thank you God/Universe for this happy day.

Smile. Stretch your arms and legs a bit. Quickly imagine a good day.

See yourself in a smooth travel to school or work, a pleasant interaction with others, peaceful travel home, nourishing food and restful sleep.

Let go of what happens and be ready for happy surprises.

2. Focus on the Good and Funny side. If things happen differently from what you visualized, write in your journal or do a quick reflection in your mind.

What is this circumstance or person teaching me?

What’s the good thing about this? What can I do about this?

What’s funny about this?

This breaks the negative pattern and shifts you to positivity.

In reflection and finding humor in the situation, it allows you to just shrug it off.

It helps you say oh well and move happily along.

You get to have more time and energy for productive things.

3. Make your mind a silent sanctuary. Try 10 minute guided meditations on YouTube.

Before meditation, ask God, your higher self, the Universe, Spirit Guides of the Highest Truth and Compassion or Guardian angels anything that you need guidance with or an advice.

You may get an answer while meditating or a few days after it.

Stay alert and awake for signs throughout your days.

The answer could either be a comforting feeling. You may see an image, words or phrase in your mind.

You could even hear song lyrics as an answer.

The answer is always filled with love, positivity and only guides you towards your highest good and of others too.

When your mind is relaxed it is open for endless possibilities.

Meditation is  perfect to calm and clear the consciousness. It fills our being with positive energy.

Inner peace, guidance, creative ideas and inspiration flow through meditation.

Where do you think I get these inspirational happy posts?

I got this from the Universe, of course!

I don’t really think about what to write. These just float in my head and I add in my personal story into it.

I get to chill and write without racking my brains out from writer’s block.

Surrendering is trust. It is taking inspired action and not questioning how your desires will come to you.

It is acting on faith that anything we can strongly imagine can be our beautiful reality.

It is expecting the best out of life and moving towards success.

There is lasting happiness and peace in surrender.

Knowing your circumstance work well to bring out and awaken your highest potential.

What are you surrendering today?

How are you going to go about it?
