HOW TO EXPERIENCE HOPE

Updated on April 3, 2011

The phrases like "hope and happiness" "hope for happiness" try to say that hope and happiness are different from each other. But in truth hope is a form of happiness. Happiness is an emotion. It is experienced in the present. When you are visualizing of thinking good things happening to you in the future, you start to experience a pleasant sensation which is similar to happiness. This is called hope.

 

As it is an voluntarily created emotion, you can create it whenever you want it. Everything......the entire experiences of your life right from the day you took birth are experienced by your body. Once again remember, it is not your mind but your body which feels the emotions. There are positive emotions and negative emotions. Both type of emotions are caused by three ways.....by your thoughts and visualizations which is voluntary, by things good and bad happening to you which is out of your control, and emotions created by the bodily sensations which is difficult to control but can be controlled through meditation, exercise, and diet. The last type is the reason why you get up from the bed and find yourself in bad mood without any reason.

Now if life is sum total of all experiences and many positive emotions are voluntary like hope, why not experience it on a daily basis? Here is how you can do it.

Sit down take a pen and paper and write down a few good things which you want to happen to you or you would like to make it happen. Now visualize each thing happening to you and/or you making it happen. Slowly your body starts giving out the sensations of happiness, your mood changes, your breathing becomes deep, and you start feeling happiness.

Remember things do not happen just like that. There should be a cause to have an effect. Think about the actions you have to take. I will write about that later. For now, just enjoy the emotion of hope.

God bless you.

      Excellent hub. Writing the negative down can help us to see problems in more positive ways. That is one of the pathways to being more hopeful. Holding on to affirmations is another way. Please see how I try to help others in new ways too. Sincerely: Gary Eby, author and therapist.
