Opening hearts and minds: The power of … the pause

Once upon a time, there lived a Boomer Babe in a perfectly picturesque town.

She was funny, she was kind, and for the very, very first time—life was easy.

No business to run, and nowhere to be—yet with all of this freedom, she still didn’t feel free.

How free could she be—feeling like she never belonged?

How free could she be—always sensing that something was wrong?

There was a hole in her soul that she tried filling with stuff, and filling with stuff and filling with stuff.

With toys galore, she kept wanting more, till the Universe said, “Enough!”

A lifequake of seismic proportions shook her down to her knees.

She cried and she cried as she tried to decide—to be or not to be.

When her broken heart began to crack, it let in a little light.

A ray of hope softened the black into a psychic twilight.

From high atop a mountain peak, she had a major, “Aha!”

A flash of inspiration so big, she dropped her jaw in awe.

She didn’t know how to be happy—she didn’t know how to be happy. She didn’t have a clue.

But what if she could learn it? What great things could she do?

What if being happy became the most important thing?

What if she only focused on what made her heart sing?

She manifested a magical mentor, who lived true to “happy on purpose.”

Who reached out her hand, and said, “Yes, you can! And the ripples will stretch out beyond us.”

Happiness, no matter what, became her sole desire.

To raise her vibration in celebration and tune her frequency higher.

With spooks and classmates and one-on-one coaching, soon her friends saw she was quickly approaching

A new way to be, a new way to see, rewiring her brain to be happy.

I’ve come here to share one of the keys that led to this transformation.

For taking the reins of our busy, fast brains, I offer this invitation.

When you find yourself at the fork in the road pondering this way or that,

Check in with your body, how do you feel? Full of energy or just kinda flat?

Now stop and shop for the better feeling thought—our feelings are our guiding light.

Just stop and shop for the better feeling thought, then choose your heart’s delight.

Feel the power, feel the power, feel the power of . . . the pause.

Feel the power, feel the power, feel the power of . . . the pause.

Now raise your voice as you make your choice, feel the power of . . . the pause.
