Compromise or feeling defeated never helps the soul evolve. To evolve, it is important to feel powerful, content and aligned with our inner voice. We have to keep changing our choice sin life to evolve to success from the soul level. The soul is not static. As consciousness expands. choices change . Our beleif in God increases as we follow our changing choices while remaining true and responsible , as God would in our place.
Staying in debt, but incurring meaningless expenditures, staying married to people who are negative and cursing your fate, doing jobs which pay but make your soul feel crushed -- all are ways which incur negative karma. Suffering arises when we create negative energy and negative karma because we are weak as souls . When we take choices as the Creator would for the good, then our soul helps us evolve.

It is important to feel good to be happy. We feel good when we have dreams of happiness for that keeps alive our zeal to live. Dreams keep our soul alive because the soul is a part of the Creator. It has to create. The soul creates through thinking in a certain direction. Energy is released by feelings contained in our thoughts. Thoughts which have positive feelings entailed release positive energies necessary for creation of happiness. Dreams, ambitions and desires tell us what to create so as to feel enriched and evolve, as souls. Our soul cannot stay happy in the body, if we get used to monotony or boredom as a way of life , as those release negative feelings of emptiness in the soul. The soul devolves if we focus on emptiness as a way of life.
The devolved soul is like a positive light trapped in a dark body . If the soul’s light cannot radiate out through the body
, we feel depressed, diseased, demonic or sick of being alive; and keep waiting for death as a rescue from the body. But, the death doesn’t help because the soul is caught in a negative energy circuit on Earth and has to free itself at an energy or thought level, to rise upto a positive dimension of freedom, creativity, love or happiness.
The technique of dreaming to keep the soul happy & radiant
Keep doing these steps mentally as you read them. Just reading will not help. The steps have to be practically applied in your imagination with feeling involved.
EXAMPLE DREAMINg OF PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS
• Sit with feet flat on the floor, spine upright or lie down.
Keep the backbone straight.
• Focus on the top of your head and remove an imagined lid, as in a kettle. Imagine boiling water pouring out taking out your stress.
• Feel black smoke coming out of the top of your head.
• Now, feel a strong beam of light falling on your head from above filling your brain with light. Think that the light is spreading to all parts of your brain.
• Feel the light travelling down to different parts of your face, to your cheeks, eyes, ears, chin, neck, chest, stomach, hands, finger, and legs.
• Feel black smoke leaving your feet and feel lighted up in your whole body, as if a white cloud is filling your whole body with light
• Now, silence your mind and take a deep breath.
• Close your eyes if you feel like it but it is not necessary.
• Now, imagine you are in a place where you are successful.
You can see yourself watching the film of you in the
central role on a TV.
• If you do not have a concrete image of what happiness
means for you, just make an abstract film in your mind.
• Feel yourself moving in the picture.
• Make the picture colorful and as vivid as possible. Focus on being surrounded by energies of success and happiness. Keep imbibing the energies of success with feeling happy.
• Feel the experience as real as could be in your mind.
Feel your clothes, your skin, your eyes, your smile, your gestures, and your movement.
• Get into the feel inside your body. Feel the energy of happiness in your being.
• Now, feel yourself receiving the respect you desire, the appreciation and love you crave for. Imagine feelings of self worth swelling in you. Feel peace in your body as you imagine you are achieving your goals smoothly. Feel good that It’s Happening and! You are in it now!
• Hear the sounds, focus on other people involved, hear the negotiations, hear the arguments, hear the questioning, hear the approvals, the laughter and hear your own mental talk.
• Keep talking positively to yourself that your work will be done as you desire with success. Feel happiness rising in you as you feel successful.
• Thank God that you feel happy and successful. Smile to yourself as you keep imagining. Focus on happiness in a way that you actually feel joyous in your body. That would ensure you release positive hormones in the body.
• Feel powerful, successful or content as you come out of the scenario. Focus on the feelings you desire more than on the details of the picture.
• We are manipulating creation of energies which will manifest into form. The feelings of happiness are more important than focusing on the form through which you attain happiness.
• Be as specific as possible in feeling the outcome you desire. Feel it intensely. Keep yourself grounded on your feet in that picture. Do not think of your visualization as fantasy. Be in that body as in real.
• Finally, connect to a halo of light above your head and take white energy in your stomach and chest. Breathe out any heaviness as you take in energy from the sky.
• Radiate out light from the centre of your heart and stomach, as if you are beaming like a Sun.
• Tell yourself that ‘I thank God that I will be guided to the right profession where I would achieve these feelings of
purpose of incarnation. I allow myself to be guided by my
Higher Self in making the right choice at the right time.’
• Breathe in and take in golden energy into your body.
Inhale the energy of the words into you, making it a part of your subconscious repertoire. Accept the guidance mentally even if you do not have clear choice yet on what to do or are confused that your choice may not get you these feelings which you desire. Choose to be flexible so that you can follow your subconscious guidance.
• SMILE, thank GOD, thank yourself for accepting the guidance and feeling good and come out of the visualization.
Keep repeating the exercise mentally. Even if you do not have time to follow all the steps exactly each time. You can release positive hormones in your body by just allowing yourself to float into a smiling imagination whenever you can spare a few seconds.
The more you visualize, the happier you would feel and the energies of happiness would get activated in your life.
Overtime, your circumstances would change to manifest the feelings you focus upon.
The same technique is used for any visualization, be it creating feeling loved or healthy. The focus has to be on feeling the picture of the dream we desire, before taking action on how to achieve our dream.
If we programme our subconscious mind to focus on feelings of happiness, before making the choice on how to achieve happiness; our intuition will guide us in directions which would ensure our happiness.
Otherwise, we are likely to make choices out of fear or by following doctrines of a generalized definition of success or happiness; which would backfire in the long run.
Being successful to keep our family happy or prove our self worth in terms of other people’s definitions of success may not help us to feel happy from within.
