Where Do You Look for Real Happiness?

There is such a fulfillment hunger in the world with people walking around wondering why they aren’t happy when they have so much.

With the advancements in technology over the past 30 – 40 years, as we are all enjoying more freedom and time to do life,  the depths of our own dissatisfaction is stirred up.

Where do you search for happiness?

Is it your job or, career, or perhaps your relationships?  Are you looking into the bottom of a bottle of wine or carton of ice cream, a shopping mall, or a vacation? 

Many think if they just had more money, more time, the perfect relationship, the perfect body, they’d be happy.  The Truth is, when you are truly happy and fulfilled in your life, these things can more easily come to you. 

If you believe that you’d be happy if you just won the lottery, know that research shows 70% of lottery winners file for bankruptcy within 7 years.  Their lives are often turned upside down. 

Why is this?  Remember that old saying, wherever you go, there you are?  If you get a divorce and then get into a new marriage in a short time, chances are you will experience similar problems to the ones you had in the previous marriage, unless you change some of the things about you that contributed to the breakup. 

Lottery winners, who felt like they never had enough money, live with a lack mindset.  No matter how much money they receive, until they change that lack mindset, the end result will always be lack.

“Modern society is built upon the individual’s desperation to escape the way we feel.” (Richard Rudd in The Gene Keys). We are trying to escape the feeling of not being fulfilled, including the feelings of being lonely and of being disconnected.

The things we do that we believe will make us happy actually make our lives more complicated.

Think of the shopaholic who runs up the credit cards and spends years paying them off, the corporate executive who continually vies for the next level position while the home life falls apart, and the lottery winner whose life totally blows up because of the complications they encountered.

Eating the sweets late at night creates havoc in our bodies that complicates our lives with health issues and pain.  Yes, we get a few moments of pleasure, a moment of false happiness, all the while creating a life of more complications.

When you realize that no amount of money, possessions, relationships, or experiences can possibly fill you up on the inside, you have a decision to make.

You can keep trying to find happiness in whatever you believe will give it to you, or choose to try something different.

True happiness and fulfillment are an inside job.

When you stop the internal noise going on in your head that is keeping you from hearing your Truth, when you allow your inner voice, your intuition, reveal to you what matters most to you.  You can start to make changes to get more in alignment with what is truly meaningful to you.  Lean in and listen.  Reconnect to the Truth of who you are and what matters most to you in your life.

The more we do to try to escape these feelings, the stronger the feelings become. 

You can live a life you LOVE where life doesn’t get more complicated, where you strip away all that isn’t you or meant for you, and you fill yourself up every day with things that truly matter to you.

Isn’t that what you really want?


  1. Learn to quiet your mind.  Meditate 10 – 20 minutes a day.  Ask your intuition to reveal to you what you most need right now to feel connected and fulfilled.  What would you love your life to be?
  2. Journal your answers.
  3. What past behaviors are creating the most complications in your life now?  What habits that create false happiness can you look at and make changes?  Journal about this.
  4. Quieting your mind is a process.  In the beginning, it’s quite normal for your mind to rebel by telling you you can’t do this, it isn’t working for you.  Have patience and know that you are not your mind, and allow those thoughts to just flow through.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
