Happiness is something everyone wants but few truly have. It is something so simple and yet so complicated, why is this?

No matter what we go through or where we end up in life we all want to be happy. Happiness is not something that we find and I think that is something many people need to come to terms with. It is something you create within and looking for it externally won’t ever do anyone any good.

The secrets to happiness are not as hidden as you might think. Even on your worst days, you can create happiness, all you have to do is know how. Below I am going to go over several things everyone should realize in life and only through this can you truly begin to manifest the happiness you have been seeking. If you do not accept and understand these things, you will get nowhere.

The 7 Secrets to Happiness

1. You must stop comparing yourself and your life to others and theirs.

You cannot keep comparing yourself to everyone around you. You are YOU not them, live your life. You cannot change bodies or lives with someone else, stop trying to.

2. Stop striving to be ‘perfect,’ perfect does not exist.

You have to give up on the idea of being perfect. No one in this world is perfect. Perfection does not exist.

3. Quit complaining, it isn’t doing any good.

You have got to stop complaining. Complaining doesn’t help anyone, all it does is create more frustration within your life. Stop feeding into the problem.

4. You have to understand that happiness comes from WITHIN.

You cannot find happiness by looking for it you have to create it yourself. If you do not create it on your own it is not true happiness. This is something most people struggle with.

5. No one is going to come save you from yourself.

Stop waiting around for a knight in shining armor, no one is going to come and sweep you off of your feet. You are the only person who can save you. Stop acting like someone else is going to come in and solve all of your problems, it does not work that way.

6. If you don’t make the changes you need to make nothing will ever happen for you.

If you do not start making the changes you need to make they will never happen. You have to be more positive and help yourself grow, if you don’t you won’t ever get out of that rut you’re in. Stop talking about it and go out and do it.

7. You are not the only person struggling, accept it.

Stop acting like you are the only person in the world going through something. You never know what other people are feeling or dealing with. Be thankful for all that you have.

Being happy is not as hard as you might think it is. If you are grateful and working towards something happiness will radiate from within your being. Don’t settle for being so closed off and afraid, live a truly beautiful thing and you should be making the most of it.

Chances are you’ve been well aware of the partial solar eclipse/new moon duo of August 11th but if you haven’t heard about the meteor shower that comes with you are in for a treat. This meteor shower is one most people wait all year for and is going to be spectacular!

This meteor shower will peak tonight and tomorrow night. While it began in July and will officially end around August 24th the night of the 11th and 12th will be the best nights to view. It is thought that hundreds of meteors per hour will be raining down on us all but those numbers could be anywhere from 20-100 per hours depending on where you are and so forth. It is most likely to be about 60-70 per hour though regardless of your location weather permitting.

Since the moon will be seemingly nonexistent tonight and tomorrow night things are matching up perfectly. Every summer this shower brings forth so many wishes for all of us and if you’ve never watched a real meteor shower before, you should definitely take a peek outside tonight. These meteors will be much more prominent in the sky and radiate from the constellation Perseus. Getting out of the city and into the darkness will give you the best view possible.

NASA wrote as follows in regards to this shower in specific:

“Perseids are also known for their fireballs,”

“Fireballs are larger explosions of light and color that can persist longer than an average meteor streak. This is due to the fact that fireballs originate from larger particles of cometary material. Fireballs are also brighter.”

“However, the constellation for which a meteor shower is named only serves to aid viewers in determining which shower they are viewing on a given night,”

Now, while they do come from the same area as this constellation they are made from the debris of the comet Swift-Tuttle. The Perseids are best if viewed from the Northern Hemisphere during pre-dawn hours and can sometimes be seen as early as 10 pm. For more information on this shower check out the video below.


Making wishes on shooting stars is something most of us have all wanted to do or have done at one point or another. This is the perfect time for you to be able to really work towards manifesting more things in your life. Even if you think wishes are silly, this is an experience you shouldn’t miss out on.

There is a lot of magic and energy surrounding the Perseids meteor shower in general. The more positivity you put out during this time the more positivity you will bring in. Don’t waste any time during the next two nights. To read about the legends surrounding this shower click here.

We all operate on our own frequencies. Some people operate on a higher frequency whereas others are more comfortable on a lower one.

While we can all grow to be more conscious and be more like

higher frequency‘ individuals, some people are just naturally already in tune with something more. Not everyone starts out on the same level and some people are able to move forward much more quickly than others. We all do things at our own pace and no one is on the same journey, that is why these differences are present.

If you want to know whether or not you are already moving through life on a higher frequency all you need to do is see if the following things apply to you. If so, you are definitely operating on a much higher level than most. While this doesn’t mean you are done learning or that you are at your peak it does set you apart from the rest.

16 Things You Will Notice When You’re A Higher Frequency Being:

1. You hear spirits/angels from time to time.

You notice small whispers from time to time. These are reminders and messages all from those who are not necessarily in this dimension. You have been gifted like this for quite some time.

2. The moods of others directly affect you.

When someone around you is down in the dumps it puts you down in the dumps. The moods and things others are going through really get to you. You just can’t keep them from affecting you.

3. Time passes by a lot faster for you than it does for others.

Some people complain about time going by too slow but to you, it’s always moving way too quickly. You feel like even an hour lasts for just a few minutes. Nothing will slow down for you and it’s always been this way. The days just fly by.

4. You can feel the energies around you.

You can read the energy of a room before you even enter it. It’s like energies are radiating off of things and you can almost see them. You are more energetically inclined than most people.

5. You rarely get sick.

You don’t get sick often because your immune system works quite well. It’s like no matter how many sick people you find yourself around you’re always fine.

6. You are wise beyond your years.

You are much wiser than most others, because you are able to tap into something ‘more.’ Even the most unusual situations you can find ways out of.

7. You are almost always quite happy.

Overall, you are a happy individual, and you never let life get you down. When something bad happens you make the most of it.

8. Meditation comes naturally to you.

You have been meditating since before you even knew what it was. This is your way of releasing stress and energizing your soul. You do it daily.

9. Your intuition is extremely prominent.

You tend to feel things deep in your gut in situations others do not. You can tell when something bad is happening and you always trust your intuition. You are able to feel things some people will never.

10. Others seem to find your presence quite comforting.

People love to be around you because they find your presence quite comforting. This is because of how high your energy is.

Your senses are more intense than those of the people around you. You can hear, smell, see and well, everything else better. This is because you are more aware.

12. Synchronicities follow you everywhere you go.

You notice repeating numbers and things of the sort often. This is because you are on the path you need to be on. The universe is speaking to you.

13. You crave a home that you do not know.

15. You are a very nurturing kind of person.

Smudging has long been recognized as an effective way of removing negative energy and evil spirits, but does this spiritual practice have more to offer? New data reveals a reason that everyone, regardless of their spiritual beliefs, should give this ancient cleansing technique a try.

Despite the fact that many Americans view the practice of smudging your home as a ‘new age’ technique, it can be traced back thousands of years to the teachings of the Native Americans, used to cleanse their spirit. Also known as the ‘Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing’, practitioners would burn herbs in a special bowl, the smoke created believed to be the cleansing property. Today, dried herbs tied together known as smudge sticks make the process even easier.

Many view the practice as skeptical at best, questioning whether those who practice today genuinely see any benefit from their efforts, or whether this ‘spiritual shower’ is merely a placebo effect. After all, if we truly believe that negativity has been removed from our lives, focusing on the positive side of life would that not, in turn, evoke the law of attraction, our own positivity, in turn, attracting more? At the same time, if it’s working and bringing more positivity into the world, is it really a bad thing?

If you’ve been wavering on giving this technique a try in your own life, a new study published in the ‘Journal of Ethnopharmacology’ looked closely at the practice of studying and the potential physical impact it may have on our lives. The research team looked at the use of single and multi-ingredient herbal and non-herbal smudging remedies as they were administered across 50 different countries.

Surprisingly, they found the use of smoke as a delivery system was more common than they had previously believed, largely used to address pulmonary, neurological and dermatological concerns. This medicinal use of smoke, the team explained, showed great promise and should be explored by those practicing modern medicine as a potential drug delivery system for many of today’s modern remedies. Furthermore, the team found that smudging was an effective way to cleanse a room not only of negative energy but also of airborne bacteria, improving air quality!

In their research, the team revealed that a 1-hour treatment of the medicinal smoke, created by burning both wood and a ‘mixture of odoriferous and medicinal herbs’ was effective in removing over 94% of the airborne bacterial populations in the space. This meant that the smudging treatment was equally as effective to, or even more effective than modern antibacterial sprays without the use of potentially harmful chemicals. Adding to the promise, a month after the smudging was completed the bacteria was still undetectable in the space.

As we continue to better understand the impact that many of these pathogens have on our lives, our society pushes the use of these chemical concoctions to kill off as many of these harmful bacteria as we can. However, this data raises the question – are we unnecessarily introducing more chemicals into our lives. Did we have the answer all along? For those that believe in its effectiveness, and it’s hard not to given these facts, smudging may be the safer, all -natural approach to protecting ourselves and our homes!
