The #1 Cause of Our Unhappiness
Have you ever had a moment when you’ve felt completely happy from the inside out?
At peace, full, grateful, relaxed…just good?
Do you find having moments like this are few and far between, elusive even?
This may surprise you, but I have spoken to people who don’t ever recall having such a moment: free of fear, stress, struggle, anxiety or negative emotion.
Imagine. Not even a single moment.
Growing up, well before discovering the art and science of happiness, I remember a handful of moments where I experienced spontaneous, unsolicited happiness. I called these moments Joy Bubbles. They fascinated me because of how expansive and powerful they were, but I never understood how they arose or further more, how to create or sustain them.
Years of studying my own personal happiness and well-being though, led me to discover the root of these Joy Bubbles and, conversely, the root of what caused the other 99% of my life in struggle and quiet suffering.
So what causes our moments of inner happiness?
You probably already understand that how we feel is directly caused by what we are thinking and believing.
And, if we are not intentionally managing our thinking and believing, our subconscious goes into auto-drive and has us thinking what it has been programmed to activate.
There is a single thought that is over-programmed in our collective belief system that is causing a global experience of scarcity and thus unhappiness: There’s not enough.
It takes many forms.
I’m not enough, it’s not enough, they’re not enough, I don’t have, know, do enough, I need more, even there’s too much (which means there’s not enough of the opposite!)
Recall the last time you felt uneasy or unhappy. See if you can remember what you were thinking or what belief was triggered in that situation. There’s a 99% chance it was a thought about not-enoughness.
Take a moment and read these words… and really mean them:
I am enough.
I always have been and always will be.
I have enough, I do enough, I know enough.
There is enough of all I need and I have enough access to it always.
All is enough.
Did you notice a subtle peace and relaxation wash over you? Relief? A Joy Bubble perhaps?
The tricky part of all this is most of us won‘t believe that “enoughness” is real. We don’t believe that there really is enough for us, for all of us. That we are enough no matter what. The collective story is so deep, so vast, so rampant, we fall back into our default thinking patterns that there isn’t enough.
We get trapped in a cycle of believing in (and reinforcing) the “reality” of lack and scarcity and so, through the divine Law of Attraction, our lives seem never to be enough. This is the root of our unhappiness.
This is an invitation for you to consider a new belief: what if you are enough just as you are, what if there is enough for you, what if believing these things is the first step to perceiving and experiencing them as the norm in your reality?
Believe it and you WILL see it. When all is enough, we can finally relax into our most profound joy and peace.
Much love and enoughness,
