DOUBLE HAPPINESS and The Power of Symbolism Part 2: So here is the beautiful box I wrapped my friends wedding prize in. The Chinese character Shuangxi means •Double Happiness• or double joy. Chinese culture believes that “happiness comes in twos” and I interpret that as in two joy filled beings emanating while walking toward the same direction. Or to simply double up what is already good! About ten years ago my friend Lisa told me about this beautiful symbol. I’ve always been a naturally happy person meaning I can find the good in any circumstance for myself and often have been told, “You can’t be happy all the time” and for a while I believed that crap. So as a sweet reminder to not ever doubt myself again I had the •Double Happiness• symbol tattooed on the back of my neck. Symbols are extremely powerful and can be useful tools in the creation of your reality. For example, using it geared toward bringing about a desired manifestation helping your consciousness to tap into and hone-in on the energy pattern necessary. The ancients understood the power of certain symbols and they where carefully handed down from generation to generation. A symbol has the advantage that it doesn’t get blurred by words. It can open up energy pathways that make you feel a certain way, bring clarity and can take you some place substantial -like a place where •Double Happiness• reigns! :p) | Life Editing and Coaching at www.willisawareness.com - because you *deserve* to feel good! :p)

DOUBLE HAPPINESS and The Power of Symbolism Part 1: A dear friend of mine got married in NYC a few weeks ago so I went to China Town to some of my favorite places to look for some Good Luck Lanterns and wrapping with the Double Happiness Symbol. As I was walking through New York City streets seeing all kinds of cultural symbolism around me I felt a lot of gratitude for my upbringing and how I was taught to be open and interested in different cultures. One of the most beautiful ways to feel and learn about cultures and yourself is through Symbolism. Though symbols serve the function of representing a concept or idea, they also reinforce our values and provide an excerpting force which can help us easier understand our meaning or make them palpable. And all without words! Seeing them causes us to have an often involuntary emotional response or release. I always encourage my clients to •find out why they like what they like•.The Red Lanterns stand for good luck and prosperity. So the next time you see a symbol you are drawn to, linger for a bit and further investigate your own reaction or response.

During a beautiful morning walk I saw these two funsters flying their kite. I loved that they climbed up those temporary sand hills our beaches here had been sporting due to restoring efforts after Sandy. They elevated their experience by making use of what was right there and they didn’t even have to run to make the kite catch the wind because they picked the perfect spot. Getting a kite to fly is like getting your mood up or inspiring yourself to get going again and the main trick there is to pick yourself up from right where you are at, for that too is the perfect spot. What I mean by that is: You can’t pick yourself up from where you wish you where! It’s impossible. If you are laying down and want to be running you have to get up first, right (?) and to activate the energy to do so, you have to accept that where you are is the perfect starting position no matter how crappy it might feel. Then the moment you look up and out you take the focus off of yourself, stop identifying with your current situation or state and open up to the massive menu of possibilities around you. So…. accept that crashing is part of life! Accept that where you are is the perfect spot! Look up and look out! Use what’s around you! Keep your eye on the kite aka the prize also known as *YOU* and allow those energetic winds to inspire/elevate you to *get high on life* ;p) | Life Editing and Coaching at www.willisawareness.com - because you *deserve* to feel good! :p)

Make sure you have a big bowl full of ~GOOD VIBRATION~ for breakfast! :p)) I’m a big fan of Sound Therapy! Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine (glands) and neuropeptide system. Since we are made mostly of water it’s a no brainer for me and part of my everyday life and my coaching! Listening to Crystal Singing Bowls is great for making some healthy internal waves ! Here I’m playing what’s called a ‘Classic Frosted Bowl’ at the Crystal & Sound Healing Center in Sedona - It was love at 1st *sound*! | Life Editing and Coaching at www.willisawareness.com - because you *deserve* to feel good! :p)

Taking the time and GETTING SOME PERSPECTIVE is probably my master rule in life! It does not matter weather you travel through a country, a state, a city, a village, a day or simply an experience! You want to take a moment or two to stop, stand back, check in and let it all sink in! That goes for the unpleasant just as well as for the pleasant! If you rush through any of it it’s as if it didn’t happen! By getting perspective we give our experience the chance to dispense its secret spice which will add even more aroma to our delish being and life! Here I’m taking in Arcosanti one last time! | Life Editing and Coaching at www.willisawareness.com - because you *deserve* to feel good! :p)

There are all these beautiful Cosanti.com bronze wind bells hanging around at Arcosanti and we also got to see how they are made. To create something with your bare hands is one of the most powerful experiences there is! It causes a what I like to call, ‘Love From You 4 You Effect’! Those bells had such a beautiful distinct sound to them! A tone I don’t think can be matched and vibrating with such immense strength and power! My kind of *chiming* in.  ~Bing!!! | Life Editing and Coaching at www.willisawareness.com - because you *deserve* to feel good! :p)
