We’ve all heard “follow your bliss and the money will come”. What if you don’t know what it is that makes you happy?

How do you do what makes you happy when you don’t know what that is?
I’ve got a pretty darn strong left brain. It doesn’t fully get that it is a linear processor and that we’d be far better served to let that parallell processor over on the other side of my head do most of the heavy lifting in life.
I keep reading posts about how doing what makes you happy is the secret to success lately, including one from Abraham-Hicks.
Yeah, ok. What is that? What is it that I feel happy doing?
I think of my work in the past, as a healing facilitator. While I felt genuine joy at the improvement and healing that others experienced, that was not really happiness. Happiness would have involved meeting somewhere for an experience of joy, laughter, love, light and fun where there was no lack or focus on something that needed healing in the first place.
OK, so if that sort of environment would stimulate happiness for me, how do I live that?
I don’t know what it looks like exactly. I do know what it feels like.
The forward slant of my left shoulder relaxes and I’m not longer seeming to push myself into the next moment. My gut relaxes and my breath deepens. My shoulders come down off my ears. My vision goes to a point I recognize as the “looking out” point from my pineal gland, out in front of my third eye and raised just a bit, about a foot and a half off the body and a simultaneous point of awareness above my crown at about 8 inches from the body.
OK, that’s my body’s way of telling me where my bliss meter goes off the charts.
If I practice feeling that every day, maybe the where and how and what it looks like will take care of itself.
