I have come to a time in my life where I just don't care anymore about my desires that have not been fulfilled. I don't care if I live the rest of my life without them, and I don't care if the rest of my life is this now, unsatisfactory perception of things.

I still, however, have only one desire- and that is, if nothing were to change, I just want to FEEL EUPHORIC, elated, blissful, at least 85% of my day. That is absolutely, honestly all I want; just the feeling.

I feel the great need to ask this question, and I am asking at perhaps, on the EGS, on a boredom, pessimistic, or contenment range of emotion. Whilst most questions on this website are ranked as 'manifesting things', or the mechanisms behind manifesting and the metaphysics behind it, I just want to know methods that can make me feel pleasant within, say, 10 to 15 minutes.

To add in some extra detail, I can say my passion is freerunning/gymnastics, but due to a stomach injury I am unable to pursue this bliss at the moment. I am adding this in because I know alot of general comments come under the "follow your passion/excitement" category.

Whilst appreciation is perhaps the answer, it can also be misleading when we all understand it cannot be authentically felt if it is 'forced' from a place of negativity. Eg: it won't work when you're feeling depressed.

How can I feel amazing, enlightened, euphoric, emthusiastic, RIGHT NOW in my life? I am not after a way to manifest at all, just a way that I can feel good coming from a mid-range point in the EGS. I have seem stuck in there for the past 2 weeks or so, and evidence of this is the recurring emotions of frustration and boredom in my dreams.

@Nikulas, it comes down to your REALITY and your PERCEPTION of REALITY. Your perception of reality is stronger than your reality. How you decide to alter your perception is another story and easy to do once you understand perception and reality connection.

@CalonLan- "asked 02 Jan, 05:08, 2012." >> This was a totally different Nikulas back then. I'm not belittling your comment, but rather a bit embarrassed that I happen to frequent some of my ex- questions and see how silly they were asking them.

It sounds like you are after specific universal methods that will work for everyone all the time (including yourself) but, like with your recent health question ( How EXACTLY do we become healthy after becoming ill? ), I don't think you can find specific methods that will work for everyone...only what will specifically work for you at this time in your life. The reasons for that are the same reasons as for my answer to your health question.

Something to think about is that if there really was a specific way to feel good that would work always for everyone then, given how long humanity has been lurking on this planet, we'd probably know about it by now.

The same reasoning applies as to why there is not one specific manifesting method that will work for everyone. We're all in different vibrational places with different vibrational intents and heading in different vibrational directions.

So how can you find out what will work for you?

Well, it's really the same old answer. Get yourself into the Vortex and then it will be obvious to you what methods will work for you.

So, ironically, the time when you can best discover your own unique methods for getting yourself into the Vortex is when you don't need them because you are already in the Vortex :) It's the You are stupid when not in the vortex thing again :)

So how do you get into the Vortex when you are not in it and don't know a method that will get you there?

There's an easy solution to this actually...WAIT

Abraham have said that even the most miserable person will have at least one experience a day of being in the Vortex, if only by accident. If you think about it, to remain out of your Vortex on a consistent basis takes effort because it's not our natural state.

You would need to have superhuman powers of negativity therefore not to "slip up" from being outside the Vortex to accidentally finding yourself in it at least once a day :)

So when you do find yourself in it, you'll then have access to all the unique methods that will get you back there in future. That's the time to make a note of them because they'll come easily to you when you are in that state.

Then the next thing to do is to remind yourself to use the list when you need reminding i.e. when you are outside the Vortex.

What I do with this unique list for myself is have it as a note accompanying a "To Do" task on my electronic daily task list. The task is titled something like "Are you in the Vortex?". It's a recurring task that I end up seeing at least once a day.

When I see it, it causes me to ask that question to myself ("Are you in the Vortex?") and contained within the notes to that task are all those unique personal methods that will work for me.

I would suggest reading The Four Agreements, it helped me a lot on this topic.

Here is the "short version" to get you started, but keep in mind that sometimes the 'simplest' things in life can be the most difficult.

Perhaps to reflect on the following statements may help.

From Seth:

What you are is good, what you do is good, you only have to tell yourself that until you believe it because it is the truth.

You are unique. There is no other in this room like you, there is no other in this universe or in any other universe like you. You are completely unique and through you the energy off All That Is flows in a completely unique, original and never to be duplicated pattern.

Therefore what you are is eternally with meaning and with purpose and rings through the universe. Your thoughts change worlds, worlds of which you are aware and worlds in which you are not aware.

I speak to you but I speak also to each of you for you are unique and like no other and All That Is flows through you in a way that it can flow through no other. The experiences that you have can happen to no other in precisely the same way.

The smile that you can give can be given in no other way. You can smile at an individual in a way that no other human being, dead or alive, can smile and the touch of your hand can change a life in a way that no other individual, alive or dead, could change that life.

You act upon those that you know and those that you do not know in ways that no other individual can ever act. In each of you resides a uniqueness that is never really captured no matter how many times you are reincarnated.

The self that you are now is unique and it is highly important that you honor the self that you are through which the vitality of the universe shines. Honor yourself as you honor the gods then indeed you also honor others.

Deny yourself and you deny others. The truths, the honesty and, if you will forgive me, the magic of the universe shines through your eyes and your skin. Then why should you say that I am wrong?.

You are the reflection of All That Is as it has never been reflected before and never will again; therefore have trust in the nature of your being. And I speak now to each of you.

Your cells realize those truths. They are themselves and they sing to the universe of your being; then should you sing to the universe as you know it as freely and as filled with joy.

So, then rejoice in what you are and each of you never to be duplicated, never again to be known, yet you are eternally forever renewed in mysteries that you cannot understand. So know yourselves, honor yourselves.

I have struggled with being bored with life myself. This came about because I got myself in a rut of going about my day, doing a job that I did not enjoy doing. So, I slowly got used to feeling unenthusiastic about my life and complaining about things that would happen to me.

The only way out of this is to start integrating things you enjoy doing into your day and find more and more things to feel good about during your day and your life will start changing. Although I am not quite there myself, I am definitely heading in the right direction. I do not believe that if this is a feeling that I have been experiencing for a while which is my case, that I will be able to jump from a dominant feeling of boredom to one of enthusiasm in a day or even a week.

What I personally started doing myself is start to write lists of things that I appreciate every morning. I also meditated. However, those things made it harder for me to think and do the things that I did not feel good about. So, now all I do is I try and focus more on the good aspect of things that happen around me and complain as little as possible as whatever happens to us, there is always a positive aspect to it, if we are willing to adopt that perspective on things.

This has already brought about so many changes in my life.

Practical Ideas

1) Listen to upbeat music , I don't care who you are , it changes everyones mood .

2) Dance and even if you have restricted movement , everyone dances on the inside

3)Sit and watch nature , sunsets are amazing , so are birds and flowers

4)Treat yourself to an Icecream and Really taste it !

5)Have a massage , feels soooo good ( minimal finance? trade services with a friend )

6)Stand in the shower and feel the water's soothing touch , remember to say Thank you :-)

7)For me , not in a position to have a pet right now , so when shopping , visit the local pet store and just enjoy the little creatures antics

8) Watch a comedy film that makes you laugh till you cry

9)Appreciate your favourite hot drink , be it Tea , Coffee, or Hot Chocolate

10) Allow yourself to be carried away in a fiction book of your choice

11) A ride in the countryside , car, bike , horse :-)

12) Barefoot gardening and reconnecting with mother earth , we have disconnected ourselves from her re energising field, by constantly wearing shoes .

These are just a few of the little ways one can feel good now

It would please me immensely to have some of my new friends here add to my simple list

Love and Laughter SL :-)

As White Tiger said meditate for 15 mins a day just focusing on your breathing, feeling life force flow through you. This will help release resistance and bring you into alignment to who you really are. Another way to feel good now is to think about how powerful and amazing you are and LOA will respond by giving your more even better thoughts of how powerful and amazing you are. Something I have only just realised is CONFIDENCE, when your are confident about yourself KNOWING you and only you create your reality, you will feel amazing.

"Think how powerful and amazing you are." I'm going to ponder this after I meditate from now on. I already meditate suffiecintly, and after getting quite ill, I've sort of been called upon to meditate in order to deal with my injury pains.

Thanks for the contribution, but I am still after some answers...

Not trying to copy pink diamond, but gratitude feels good. I started to mull over what has happened today to make me happy. I worked, the job went well. I paid my helper. Then booked another job. I went Yes I got one I made it home in time for the Rose Bowl, and a hell of a game. I got ice cream in the freezer. So what's better? Time wise it took only a few seconds to get to the pink cloud after I realized how good life is. Happy New Year, game tied at 21 each.

nikulas you are stuck in duality does frustration and boredom serve you? why did you have that injury did you over do it a little? know this you are more then the equal of your parts. what if you would be stuck in a wheel chair? would you be able to make use of another part of you? or would you just be stuck in self pity? this is another lesson of life for you. just experience and enjoy it. you have free will and are responsible of your choice. one extreme will just send you in the opposite extremes. you said 15 to 20 minutes. i would say meditate each days 15 to 20 minutes solve those duality. experience and enjoy.

Use Two Hands Touching every moring when you get up with some affirmations as described in the link. Do THT any time throughout the day that you feel less than great. Do it by itself for some things, with affirmations, visualizations, questions, etc... for different things. THT is a great way to feel better Now. I hope this helps.

To feel good now...is it more important than all your future happiness/bliss to come?

It's a big problem all around; that we strive to understand big words and spend all of our time worrying over the perfection of our passions but don't feel the need to understand ourselves and our emotions.

Want to bring more balance to your life? Learn to manage your emotions rather than being at the mercy of them.
