Escape to Happiness Island  to relieve stress and have time to experience Smilence moment!                                                                                                  

Some situations in our life can leave us overwhelmed, stressed, frustrated and live us with as sense of helplessness.

A few year’s ago, I went through a period of depression and loss of self esteem and confidence when I got divorced and within that same year I was made redundant, the house was due to be repossessed, I had two toddlers to look after and I was in so much debt and I really felt I was in s deep dark hole with no way of getting out.   After the initial shock and stress of the situation, I slowly found my self coming to terms with things, and got help from various organisations, my church, friends and family. I also attended training to be a life coach and spent time  reading various books on things like the Law of Attraction, Use of Affirmations and Visualisation to get what you want in life.

My friend had also given me a book called “You already have it” which being a speed reader, I was able to read within a day. As I sat down quietly one morning, somehow I came with the idea of Happiness Island.

What is Happiness Island?

To me, Happiness Island is a place I can escape to using my creativity and imagination to experience things that I want to in my life.    Being in Happiness Island allows me to experience a life of limitless possibilities. So I now invite you to take an adventure with me.

Step 1  Best time for you to Escape to Happiness Island

Decide on the best time of the day that you are usually quite and relaxed. (As for me, I am a morning person)   You then need to find somewhere quiet where you can clear your mind and focus.

Step 2  I am ready to experience Happiness and Joy

Take a deep breathe in, and then breathe out. Now say “ I am ready to experience happiness and joy”. Next spend a dew minutes just thinking about people and things right now in your life which you are grateful and thankful for, and then spend a minute as you recall happy moments and smile!! Smile because despite challenges you may be going through in life right now, you are alive, and once their is life, their is hope.

Spend some time and Imagine your own Happiness Island. What it would look like etc. Imagine that your Island has everything that you need right now. Spend some time on developing this. You could get a plain piece of paper and design this using word, drawing pictures or get pictures from magazines etc

Step 3

Now, focus your mind on God or whoever you see as your source of help. You then have to believe that all you need in all areas of your life has been provided and that you deserve good things to happen to you.

Step 4

Be specific and focus on just one particular goal that you want to achieve in your life right now, also think about why you want to achieve it, and how you will feel once you have achieved it. Then, trust, focus, believe and expect your goal to become a reality.

Step 5

Imagine now that you have achieved your goal and just spend time imagining and enjoying how you would be feeling and experiencing the things achieving this goal will allow you to do. Really enjoy yourself.

Step 6

Now spend time being thankful to God or the Universe or whoever you feel has helped you to achieve this particular goal.

Step 7

Imagine you are now leaving Happiness Island feeling Inspired, Energised and Happy, and as you leave you take one of my Gift of Happiness Box as in it, you will have:
