That old Wilson Phillips Song –“Hold On” is one.
Oh, and finding unexpected coins in the bottom of my pocket. That works too.
These are some of my good-day triggers.
We all know those other kind, the button pushers or the triggers that push us toward anger or stress: dirty counter tops, laundry washed but not folded, people who don’t RSVP, editors who don’t respond, double dippers – I’m just saying.
But, what about the triggers that move you toward gratitude and joy and silliness and peace? These we have to look for and choose consciously. Sometimes it happens simply by tuning in and looking at those things that routinely show up in your life. The song that you love that seems to always be playing on the car radio. The way you find forgotten money in your pockets. Feathers and repetitive numbers – which psychologist and clairvoyant Doreen Virtue and others say are signs from the angels.
Become aware today of the things that keep showing up in your life that make you feel good and comitt to becoming conscious to them; to pausing and giving thanks and feeling good EVERY time they appear.
The number 111 shows up constantly for me. When I’m nervous about trying something new, as well as, when I’m on track and feeling energized, when I’m peaceful. Now, when it shows up, I use this number as a reminder to stop and celebrate all that I am and all that I have. It causes me to consciously smile and marvel and enjoy the moment. It’s a good-day trigger and in an instant it raises the level of my life and my vibration – if you believe in the vibration of flow and all.
Just as dirty counter tops can freak me out, (I’m not saying that’s a logical reaction only that it happens) a good song, a penny (a sign of abundance) on the street, a tree blowing in the wind can trigger me toward joy. These good-day triggers move me into the present, connect me with what is good.
Cultivate those triggers in your own life. What do you see or hear or touch that turns you on, gets you excited, inspires you, fuels feelings of love, or creates that sense of well being and peace? Perhaps it’s a song, or a certain color, a natural landmark or an animal. Be deliberate. Don’t choose things that are everywhere. This way, when these triggers do show up and continue to show up in your life, you’ll realize that it’s not by default it’s happening because you are drawing them to you as a source of power to lighten the load or elevate your experience.
Sounds a little woo woo, I know, but if we can be triggered toward anger and despair, why not find those things that pick us up and move us into alignment with the more positive Universal forces? They are out there. Find yours. Choose them consciously and watch for them. Let them trigger your good-day feelings.
