I just love it when the Universe whispers messages to me over and over again. Recently the message has been, “Up your tolerance for bliss.” It is a backwards way to think, really. Bliss isn’t something you imagine should need tolerating. But the truth is, it can be an intense ride.
This messages was first something I felt. About a year ago I had a couple of back to back months when I experienced extreme levels of happiness, felt like I was in my zone, and detected intense waves of ecstasy coursing through my veins. I was hitting the mark on so many of my dreams and life was just plain good!
I identified all that as bliss. If I had been any happier, I might have exploded. I wondered if I had maxed out on the amount of happiness I could handle or if perhaps I might be able to adjust my inner bliss threshold so that I might eventually withstand even more.
Months later while listening to the audiobook Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity by Edwene Gaines, I heard her mention that this was an important aspect of prosperity. She suggested that to follow through with calling more abundance into your life you would need to be able to stretch your capacity for bliss. Later that same day, I opened one of Danielle LaPorte’s Truthbombs only to find that exact message staring at me from the computer screen.
Ah, I thought. This message is for me. And so, I am setting out on a journey to consciously increase my tolerance for bliss.
“How does one do that?” you ask. Indeed, I am beginning by asking myself that same thing! Curiosity is a great tool for creating life. I believe that my creative spirit must surely know, and so I have invited it to show me the way.
To help me stay on that path, I have chosen the word THRIVE as my word for the year. I imagine that when one is in a state of thriving they are experiencing levels of BLISS. Perhaps the two words are sisters!
