Shinjhini shares her insights into the question: Do I deserve to be Happy?

Dear Isheeria’s Healing Circles Reader,

Welcome to my birthday carnival exploring the question –

“Do I deserve to be Happy?”

Theme isheeria celebrations

Do we deserve to be happy?

My simple answer to this is unequivocally, absolutely, yes!

But that isn’t the answer you’re looking for, are you? I mean, did you really think anyone would tell you that you don’t deserve to be happy?

So let’s look at this question from a different angle. 

What do we need to know about happiness?

Ah, now there’s a question with so many answers and so many insights just waiting to come through. 

If you know me, you know that I am a lover of Tarot and Oracle cards, and this is the kind of question with which you can hit gold.

So I pulled out the Rumi Oracle by Alana Fairchild, and this is the card I drew:

From Nothing to Everything 

What do we need to know about happiness?

Nothing and everything. There’s nothing to “know” about happiness – it’s something you feel. And there’s everything to know about happiness – the laughter of a child, the antics of a kitten, the sheer delight of being here, alive, reading these words, living this life. 

If you simply observe the card, there are so many clues there – the heart, which points to embracing and feeling all the feels..the rose and peach colors, indicating the sheer joy of being alive, and the darkness at the corners, which tells us that to really feel the joy, we also need to embrace the sorrow. It isn’t something to be rejected, pushed down, feared. It almost always brings you gifts – resilience, loved ones who stand by you, an indomitable spirit. 

It’s only after you pass through the valley of sorrow that you can taste the sweet happiness of life. They are two sides to one coin. 

As Alana Fairchild says about this card: “We may hit obstacle after obstacle and create more terror in our storytelling – that life is such a pain, such a struggle, that success may not be for us, that we are forgotten and unheard. Yet we could equally choose to wonder if obstacle after obstacle, closed door after closed door, is just a prompt to look for the open to window to climb through.” 

When we live this way, with presence, acceptance, choosing to respond to each day as best as we can, slowly, we see that our life is filled with grace. Slowly, we will begin to pay attention to the open windows and doors instead of looking only at the ones that are closed firmly in our face. And slowly, we will never be left to wonder if we deserve happiness, because we will know, deep in our hearts, that we do. We always do.

    Happiness is something everyone wants to have. All in all, I would say that happiness is a decision. Your happiness is your decision to make. Understanding what happiness is will give us good ground upon which to build our life better.
