While we are going through the process of ascension, we can experience some dark times. It can feel heavy. Its important to give yourself a break from taking things too seriously as too much time here can negatively affect your energy. Lighten things up by bringing through the energy of joy.
Joy is an aspect of love. It is the bubbly, excited expression, happy feeling which is deeply rooted in love. It is a divine energy.
That's why you feel joy as a really powerful energy. That and love are easy to sense and feel once you get them. It is difficult, if not impossible to move from a state of fear to a state of joy, so sometimes its necessary to build up to joy by stabilising the vibration of love first.
Joy is a fundamental energy for us to move to as we are ascending. We should want to feel it, express it and share it often. Think of the joy a small child experiences when they are having fun. We need to remember how to be in that state. Inside your very spirit exists joy and it is beautiful. Feeling joy even when times are hard will keep your energy high. Learning to elevate yourself when the chips are down is a beautiful thing to be able to do, and when you can do it, others around you will follow. Joy has an infectious way about it. Try keeping a straight face when somebody else is laughing. Try not to feel your heart opening a little when you see somebody else having fun and feeling joy themselves. We are meant to feel joyous.
