The Enlightened Festive Mindset

The Enlightened Festive Mindset By Jafree Ozwald and Margot Zaher www.EnlightenedBeings.com   "You cannot be happy with a serious mind.  With a festive mind, you can be happy. Take this whole life as a myth, as a story.  It is one, but once you take it this way you will not be unhappy."   ~ Osho   Are you having fun yet?  Whether you are enjoying your life today or not depends on one thing…your attitude.  If you wish to enjoy this moment immensely, start welcoming the "Festive Mindset".  This means you are choosing to see EVERY situation as opportunity to reveal more Love, Joy, Inner Peace, or FUN!  This is another golden key to becoming a manifesting magnet!  When you take your life too seriously it’s as if you are gripping too tightly to the steering wheel.  Your mind and body become more contracted, your vision gets blurred, and you become entangled in tension and essentially cut off the flow of life force.  If you want to keep manifesting unhappiness, then become even more serious about everything happening in this world.  If you want to make this planet a more enlightened playground, become more joyful, lighthearted, and devour those serious gremlins.  Just letting go of the seriousness about everything allows you the space inside to make a clear choice to have fun with the time you have left.  Let go of that serious attitude and play!    "You can’t shake hands with a clenched fist." ~Gandhi    The more often you give yourself permission to play and achieve nothing, your every breath becomes a pathway to experiencing more freedom and inner peace.  The playful festive mindset also opens you up emotionally so that you can start LOVING life and eventually turn into a love-a-holic.  Of course life situations will manifest the way they need to, yet your power exists in HOW you respond to life.  Prioritize lightness over seriousness, making it your first reactionary response.  Soon the sense of fun and freedom will be following you everywhere!!  Imagine what your face will look like once you decide to smile at and laugh with everything that happens to you in the next 24 hours.  Is this someone who you would enjoy being?  The festive mindset is a choice you get to make in each moment.  The serious gumpster inside you doesn’t want you to believe it is a choice.  It wants you to believe that you are trapped and stuck in some unhappy pattern you cannot change.  You see, seriousness is a gremlin that thrives on fear.  It is always constricting and repeling people and opportunities away from you.  How do you feel when you are around someone who is super serious about life?  Do you really want to be around them?    The good news is that it is super easy to release and free any serious gremlins inside you.  It simply starts with your heart’s committment to having more fun!  In time the festive mindset will get rooted inside you.  Then you’ll experience the greatest Truth of all;  that life is just one crazy and wild exotic game.  Yes, it’s a massive game on a spiritual playground where you can explore your soul, enjoy yourself, and evolve.  You have already been chosen to be one of life’s greatest players, so it is time to start playing!  It’s really not important who "wins" in this game.  It doesn’t even matter who defeats whom in the end.  The most important thing is that you are truly enjoying the game now.   Games were created to have fun, right?  Take this moment and look at where you can start having more FUN in your life.  If you were a fun-loving playful child again, how would you approach the situations in your world?  If this life is a game, how do you really want to play it?    "Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain one once you grow up."  ~Pablo Picasso   It’s surprising what can happen in your life when you start to consciously choose the festive mindset over living in serious gremlin-ville.  I (Margot) had an experience seven years ago that clearly demonstrated the power of the festive mindset.  One autumn evening, I decided to radically shift my approach to networking, and attend a community business event with an entirely different mindset.  Up until that evening, I had always been very serious about making a good impression at these networking events.  I had worked hard to perfect my introductions, have great sales conversations, and generally make people what to do business with me.  The problem was that I was feeling a bit of pressure around attending these events, and was no longer really enjoying them.  So on that evening, I decided to embrace the festive mindset.  I imagined that this event had been held in my honor and that it was just one big party for me where everybody was excited to see me!  Since I love parties, it was easy for me to imagine that this event was the best party ever and I started to really have a good time.  I forgot about selling my coaching services and just had a lot of fun meeting new people.  In fact, people kept walking up to me and telling me that I looked like I was having fun.  The amazing thing about that evening is the kind of success I manifested.  I created three long-term clients that night, and made a life-long friend who introduced me to an entire new group of like-minded people who many are now my best friends.  The power of imagination is truly amazing.      "Imagination is more important than knowledge."  ~Albert Einstein   So it’s time to say good-bye to the old serious attitude of approaching life like it’s something challenging to conquer, and embrace the festive mindset that views all experiences as part of the bigger game of life.  Start adopting this fun-loving light-hearted attitude right now about what concerns you most about your life.  Even if you don’t normally think of an experience as "positive" or "good", imagine how an enlightened light-hearted being would approach it.  Practice on the small perceived nuisances like traffic jams and missed appointments, and soon you will be able to see how life is truly a game to be enjoyed!  Once you deeply embrace this new attitude, your manifesting vibration will SKYROCKET and you will manifest a plethora of your desires.   Learn practical techniques to integrate the Festive Mindset into your life with our 90 Day
