Always Look on the Bright Side of Life Sing-Along

I have a friend who introduced me to the Intenders of the Highest Good. They have a system of how to manifest a better life for yourself and others.

Everyday they send you, (if you’ve signed up for their free newsletter ) a new tip on how to improve your skills in positive manifestation. Step 8 had a lovely offering about staying uplifted, to do the thing you came here to do. So I thought I’d put it on the table for discussion.

The Bridge ~ Step 8 ~ Staying Uplifted
Oftentimes things may be happening all around you that seem to be discordant, and you cannot imagine what is going on. But you must remain focused and steadfast and be able to see through and not get caught up in the mundane dramas that are constantly being perpetuated on this planet.

I have good friends who live way out in the desert in order to get away from everything. Like a lot of people nowadays, the husband is obsessed with disasters and potential catastrophes. In fact, he even has a cave on his land stocked with enough survival goodies to feed and water a small town. I lived with my friends for a few months the winter before last, and everyday, as we worked together, the husband would talk about last night's Art Bell radio show, and he even taped the most frightening shows so that I could listen to them later in the day.

Now . . . I was having some health challenges when I arrived at their place, and over a period of the next couple of months I felt my energy level going down and down. My physical discomfort was getting worse by the day.

Finally, one morning I asked my inner guidance what was going on, and the answer I receive was very helpful. I was told that the next time the husband approached me with the latest disaster rumors to tell him, "My friend, I know that you mean well for me, but I have to ask you to hold off on these scary stories of yours. You see, it's my job to stay uplifted, no matter what. Your stories are enticing, however they tend to bring my energy level down. I need to stay up if I'm going to do the work that I came here to do." To make a long story short, he began to honor my request right away, and in a very short time my health and energy level shot back up to normal.

And that's the message for all of us who truly care about the well-being of humanity. It's like a resume for us, so that when anyone asks us what our job is we can say "It's my job to stay uplifted, regardless of all the crazy things that are going on around me. In fact, I've come to understand that if everyone buys into the disaster mindset and nobody guards their energy level, then we will all be down wallowing in the swamplands. Some of us have to stay uplifted, and that's what I'm here to do!"

My Intention for today is:
I intend that I am staying uplifted and doing what I came here to do.


  1. Thank you Deb for posting this. Daily I practice in my mind prior to getting out of bed intentions/ prayers for the qualities that I wish to experience in my day. All of this with the intention of feeling peaceful, fulfilled, successful, and happy no matter what occurs around me or in my day ahead. Staying uplifted is what we are here to do.

  2. This has been my daily intention (and reality) for a long, long time. I found in my long career in the Navy that, if you're happy, it takes people by surprise! And it defuses almost all stressful situations. Negative energy saps, positive energy adds.
