Being cheerful, smiling, having a positive attitude is actually good for your health. It is good for the physical body and the soul. Not to mention the mental aspects of life as well. So today we’re going to be talking about the importance of putting on your smile daily.

A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance.

Proverbs 15:13

What exactly does this verse from Proverbs mean? Well, very simply put it means to smile more often and fill our hearts with positive emotion.

We’ve probably all heard that smiling can literally reframe our thoughts and mood. Not only is it good for you and your mindset, but also for those that you associate with.

How aware are you that the simple act of smiling can literally stop a negative thought? It is a fact and research shows that smiling more often can rewire the circuits in the brain that helps keep a positive attitude towards life. This means that our higher level consciousness has designed us in such a way that when you smile with your eyes and mouth in a real deep, meaningful, purposeful, way – we reap the benefit.

That part of your brain involved in decision-making and intellectual thoughts actually activates in a positive way when you smile more. Your thought patterns become stronger, more effective, simply smiling a lot more makes you happier and even more likely to enjoy living. So much goodness and aid towards our mental wellness; especially when we may need it more than ever.

It’s just how we’re wired. We’re not wired to be negative, sad, depressed individuals. We make ourselves that way, or we allow the external environments to affect us. However, we can break through these negative external factors. We just have to become more mindful of that physical aspect of smiling and attitude in relation to how much it can positively impact our lives.

Smile within your Inner Circle of Influence

Another perspective about this is to simply think about the people that you invite into your inner circle. Pay attention, to who you are spending the most amount of your time with. Smiling is contagious. In fact, it works in reverse as well. Anybody that is more of a negative factor in your life can also be infectious and contagious that way too.

It’s almost impossible to not respond to a real, genuine, loving smile that someone gives you. Actually try this in life today. If someone were to smile at you, try and resist to smile back. It’s actually not something that’s very natural. You can resist it, but there’s going to be some awkwardness most likely because we are wired naturally for love and less from place of darkness. Make smiling more often a part of your personal value system of functionality.

We can naturally bring more positivity and more uplifting energy to the world and people around us. It is far better that we lift others up over tearing them down. It is a way of reflecting and sharing the higher consciousness love that we have within us. This can help make life better for everyone in our lives, including ourselves.

So simply put, make an effort today and every day to smile more often, even in difficult times. Putting a smile on your face actually does rewire the signals from the brain to the body and places you in a better mental space, no matter the external circumstances life throws our way.

The Power of Choice

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life, so that you and your descendants may live.

Deuteronomy 30:19

The choices we make impact our health, mental wellness, and physical lives. Those choices also impact our loved ones within our circles of life. However we rarely pause to realize the power of choice. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live. This is a tremendously powerful verse in the Bible. It teaches us about the power of choice, and that the choices we make impact our lives in many different facets.

Today we look at the Power of Choice and how it impacts our lives through every decision we make.

From our health, our mental wellness, to the physicality through which best aim to live our lives. There’s all kinds of aspects in our lives that impact generational boundaries based off the choices that each of us make on a day-to-day basis. I love talking about the power of choice. It’s one of my favorite topics to discuss. It’s so compelling and enlightening to understand that we really do have the basis to form our realities through the daily choices we make. For better or for worse.

From simple, seemingly effortless choices to more grandiose ones. What we do with all these choices lead us down different paths of opportunity to possible victories, as well as possible failures and learnings. If we take a step back, we can begin to see the impact that we have on our lives, through this present moment awareness of choice.

Epigenetics and its Impact from Choice

How the power of choice affects our environments
The Impact of Epigenetics in our Life

We have the ability to rewire and reprogram the thinking by choosing to think that we can influence our own lives through choice. The recent science, study, and breakthroughs in Epigenetics is proving this to us. The choices that we make throughout our daily lives really do change us. Not only us, but future generations as well. There is vast life impact through these teachings and studies.

This verse from Deuteronomy challenges, us to look at whether the choices we are making in our lives are bringing us good, or bringing us bad. That is the life bearing aspect or the death bearing aspect. Are we choosing to live a better, more empowering life or are we hurting ourselves through continual lower vibrational choices?

The verse highlights our personal responsibility as humans. To live a life that best fulfills our free will opportunities. We have the ability to think and choose ourselves into a more positive outcome, or we can become more detrimental to ourselves through the power of choice. With this perspective from Deuteronomy, we have the ability to become, in a sense, far more self aware of the choices that are leading us to a higher level of light and good. It is the basis for the Law of Attraction.

We can also choose positions of outcome that lead to more darkness and possibly more negative outcomes. This will continue to attract more negativity into one’s life. However, because we have the power of choice, there is always hope we can choose to change for good. Whether it be for the better or for the worse, we are accountable for every action that we take.

It’s the Power of Choice that leads us into our futures, through every present life moment…

Choose yourself wisely!
