Remember that delightful feeling of bliss when something lifts your spirits for a moment or the whole day?
When is the last time you experienced joy? Did you know can (and should) add joy into your daily life?
Your awareness of what you are passionate about is diminished when you deny yourself joy. Every time you experience joy you unlock a part of yourself hidden to you. You also establish a better connection to your soul.
Bonus: The very practice of experiencing joy brings you closer to your divine purpose.
When you withhold joy from yourself and the world at large, you withhold the experience of joy rippling through the earth’s energy field.
