This time of the year makes me long for Hawaii, the Aloha State of the United States of America. Even though I am elsewhere at this time, I can create my own Aloha State within my soul.
I am well aware that one of the meanings of “Aloha” is Love. I can create my own internal state of love and feel relaxed as if I am on vacation in Hawaii.
I imagine myself on a beach in Hawaii. I feel the warm breeze. I smell the sea air. I hear the waves coming onto the shore. I have created Hawaii within my state of being.
I notice I am calmer now. I feel my heart open up to happiness again.
I imagine my toes wiggling in the sand. I pretend to collect shells like a curious child. I feel the state of happiness overtake me.
I can create this state of being any time I want.
I anchor this happiness within by touching my heart and breathing in. A smile creeps over my face. I hear Hawaiian music playing in my head. I do a hula dance just for fun.
I decide to deepen my happy Hawaiian state by eating some pineapple. I can taste the sweetness even if I do so in my imagination.
Today, I think of all the things I love about Hawaii and bring them into my holodeck of happiness. I am a powerful creator.
- What part of my life needs more happiness?
- What can I do to make this my default state of being?
- Who can I influence with happiness?
