What else about that elusive satisfaction named “Happiness”?
I promised I would tell you more about the truth behind getting to and staying happy.
In my last post, I wrote that experts suggest you should exercise more, eat less, have relationship meetings, meditation and mediation, hire out, drink less, smoke less, walk more, and so on.
They say doing all this helps you deal and manage stress in the moment. Then you “could” stay happier. Oh Yeah?
Let me start here.
If you constantly feel unhappy, chances are, 93% of the issue is likely a result of regret! And what’s more, most of that is taken in from other people’s opinions and suggestions – it’s not even YOU!
Regret you say? Well, let’s think about it.
How often do you find yourself saying, “I wish I had done that. I wish I hadn’t done that. I wish this could have been different. I shouldn’t have. I should have…”
How often do you hear from others, “Wish you had come yesterday. Wish you hadn’t said that. Wish we had met before I got married. Wish you weren’t born!…”
We talk about not “shoulding” all over ourselves, but if I’m being totally honest here, a should is simply a regret disguised.
What you are doing is reinforcing in your mind, body and subconscious that the past is more important – was more important – than where and what you are doing today!
You have today only once! If you decide to lament about what could have been, you are sorely missing opportunities that could be floating right in front of your eyes and you won’t see them!
Reliving and rehashing past experiences is damaging!
What most people don’t realize is that the past does not exist. Nope – it doesn’t exist! It too is a memory and elusive. Most people don’t even get the story right years later!
The past is some inkling or memory of thick energy that could be your major source of irritation. In fact, depending on the emotional hook of a past experience, it could literally make you sick.
Studies are proving that the stress of regret is causing not just minor irritations, but major diseases in your body. And we’re not just talking about the cold or aches that put you in bed to rest kind. We’re talking about the big ones like cancer, heart attacks, strokes and dementia’s!
According to a recent article by Brain Mossop, in Scientific American, “A life of tension may hasten the onset of Alzheimer’s.”
Yoi! And that’s just one medical resource. I found dozens of medical journals and doctors finally agreeing that stress is a direct result of regret and staying stuck!
And again, even with some findings and medical advice, unhappiness prevails.
So how can you release some of the energetic tension you hold onto that keeps you feeling regret?
I talk a lot in my book, “The Most Powerful Person on Earth!” about different ways to release unproductive habits. And one of the most effective, simple and popular methods is bubbling out the energetic culprits!
Here’s how to do this:
- Imagine your regret and see that it literally sits inside your body. Find it hiding behind your heart, back of your throat, or it could even be down around your knees.
- Now, close your eyes, put your left hand out and imagine a large beautiful bubble sitting on the palm. Inside the bubble is a powerful magnet pointing directly to the regret you found in your body. Allow the magnet to “swoosh” out the regret energy into the bubble.
- When it feels complete, put out your right hand and imagine a 2nd bubble sitting on the palm. Inside this 2nd bubble is another very powerful magnet pointing to the first bubble.
- Allow the 2nd magnet to draw out your power, energy, lightness, boldness, happiness and any loving energy that is yours in the first place out of the regret sitting in the 1st bubble.
- When that feels complete, pop the first bubble and allow it to fly away into the cosmos and disappear!
- Take the lighter, brighter energy of the 2nd bubble and pop it back into you.
Done. Now Check in a few minutes later and notice how you feel. Your imagination is the most powerful mechanism – it’s what helps you create your life, your steps, your inspirations. Trust it!
I have some good news and some bad news!
This is still not the key to perpetual happiness – yet!
You may want to dig deeper and take another look at any regret you may be hiding, sharing, reminding or even trying to live out today. Regret is simply a memory that can infest a healthy mind and has the power to create disease!

It’s a start to happiness.
Are you ready to find out what else the key to perpetual happiness is?
I invite you to stay tuned for the next post when I unveil an even deeper answer! This one will have you even more intrigued and surprised, you will wonder why no one ever told you this before!
I do hate to leave you … still in the fog… but heck, what’s a few more days?!?
2012 holds new opportunities! It also holds a significant spiritual position.
