Joy. But wait that’s it? Yup. That’s it. Can it be that simple? Yes. It can.
At the root of everything you chase, everything you wish for, and everything you desire: a big bank account, the perfect partner, an adventurous weekend, a happy family, a luxury vacation, loads of money, the perfect cup of coffee, great friends, a fine wine, a dream home etc.—whatever it may be—all of it and everything you seek is with the sole purpose to feel good. So why not just feel good anyway?
That’s right. Start there. And then everything else: the lucrative career, to be famous, the fun night out, getting rich, a successful business, to travel the world etc., is icing on the cake. Because you don’t need any of it to feel joy. To be happy. To Be Something Wonderful. You and only you control all of it. You are powerful beyond measure. You are an awesome creator. Get used to it.
Everything in your physical world right here and right now was created by you. It all starts on the inside. If you feel crappy on the inside, guess what? That’s right. You bring crappy into your reality. The source of any problem, no matter how big or how small, is rooted in how you feel. Feel good. Feel joy. And suddenly your problems seem to melt away as if by magic. Well, actually, it is magic. And you have access to this magic on a daily basis. It’s who you really are. You are connected to this pure, positive, universal energy. Really, it’s that simple. Just drop down into that joyful space where everything and anything is possible. When you do, the people, the events, and the circumstances that surround you suddenly lose power over you. Your inner state of joy is no longer dependent on outside influences. You are happy just because. This is when the magic happens and you open the door for the universe to orchestrate and bring wonderful things to you.
“There is no desire that anyone holds for any other reason than they believe they will feel better in the achievement of it. Whether it is a material object, a physical state of being, a relationship, a condition or a circumstance—at the heart of every desire is the desire to feel good. And so the standard of success in life is not the things or the money—the standard for success is absolutely the amount of joy you feel.” — Esther Hicks / Abraham-Hicks
Call it what you will. Luck. Karma. Law of Attraction. Simply put when you feel good you are in a state of allowing the universe to bring you all of it—from your smallest desires to your greatest hopes and dreams. And when you don’t, you are resisting the universal flow. You feel disconnected from the powerful source energy of the universe. And suddenly everything feels heavier and more difficult. Things just seem to go wrong. So stop chasing joy and just feel good now. Just feel good anyway and start allowing the infinite, source energy of the universe to flow through you.
Joy. Happiness. Prosperity. Abundance. Clarity. Success. Love. All of it already exists for you in the here and now. This beautiful, benevolent, bountiful source of goodness has always been available to you. Waiting for you to notice it. Waiting for you to embrace it. Waiting for you to live it.
So what is Be Something Wonderful™ anyway? Be Something Wonderful™ is that magical state of pure potential. That limitless source of joy, happiness, abundance, and prosperity. Be Something Wonderful™ is about connecting to that seemingly divine state and living your dreams, not just some of the time, not just part of the time, but all of the time.

Listen to yourself! Well, don’t mind if I do. That hunch. That nudge. That tingle. That itch. That inspiration. That gut feeling. That inner knowing. That inner voice known as intuition is constantly communicating with you if you would only listen. You just know you’re right, but don’t know why. It just feels right. That’s your intuition. It’s only when you start focusing on how you feel instead of what to do, you begin to harness your powerful, eternal inner self—the divine part of you that is connected to source energy or as I mentioned in my 11 April 2016 post “I get It Now,” the quantum field.
“There is a universal, intelligent, life force that exists within everyone and everything. It resides within each one of us as a deep wisdom, an inner knowing. We can access this wonderful source of knowledge and wisdom through our intuition, an inner sense that tells us what feels right and true for us at any given moment.” — Shakti Gawain
When I say focus on how you feel, I don’t mean feel in the traditional sense of the word. I’m not referring to feelings or emotions such as happy, sad, anxious, angry or excited, etc. Because these are just temporary and fleeting states that are outer directed and influenced by the people, events and circumstances that surround you and your physical reality. They are not who you really are. We commonly use the word feeling when referring to intuition for lack of a better way to describe it. However, it’s more than just a feeling—it is an inner knowing, a state of pure bliss. And this inner state is where intuition lies. It’s a place of joy, peace and freedom. No external person or influence can affect it. It is a state of simply being. You don’t have to do anything to achieve it. It’s already there. It’s always been there. What’s more, you can tap into it anytime and anywhere you want.
“If you knew your potential to feel good, you would never ask no one to be different so that you can feel good. You would free yourself of all of that cumbersome impossibility of needing to control the world, or control your mate, or control your child. You are the only one who creates your reality. For no one else can think for you, no one else can do it. It is only you, every bit of you.” — Esther Hicks / Abraham-Hicks
When you are aligned with your higher self, you can’t experience anything but abundant love, joy, peace and a deep sense of lightness. It’s your connection to source energy. It is here where you access your profound inner wisdom called intuition. But when you let your feelings and emotions take over, and allow the outer circumstances to affect you, causing regret, worry, fear, anger, jealous or envy etc., you are out of alignment with the pure, positive source energy that is the divine you. You give up your power to these feelings and emotions that are not the real you. Your point of power is right here, right now. And when you let go and stop worrying about the future and regretting the past, and give up the need to be right and correct things in present, you tap into your true, divine, invincible, unlimited self. This is the only true source of clarity, focus, happiness, strength, prosperity, abundance and joy. It is from this intuitive space where anything is possible.
“You start to see seemingly miraculous things happen when you follow your intuition.” — Dr. Lissa Rankin
Steve Jobs said, “Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect.” Why then don’t we let our intuition guide us in our everyday lives? Why do we let our rational, logical, intellectual minds get in the way? Maybe because this is how we were conditioned as children. I remember hearing these common phrases from the adults around me growing up: “Come back down to earth!” “That’s wishful thinking.” And the classic, “It’s a pipe dream.” It’s no wonder then many of us have shut off our intuition in favor of the practical, real and logical. But here’s the thing—intuition is the only thing that IS real.
“Intuition is the only real valuable thing.” — Albert Einstein
It’s difficult to know when you are tapping into your intuition or just exercising wishful thinking. However, one way to know when you are connected to source energy, and therefore your powerful, intuitive self, is to realize how you feel when you are not. Often when you are not aligned with your higher self and intuition, you feel uncertain, regretful, doubtful, and in general, uneasy about your decisions and actions. And these feelings could give rise to anger, distrust, envy, jealousy and resentment. This can only mean you are disconnected from who you really are, giving your power away to the external influences of people, events and circumstances that surround you. Anything outside of your inner, divine self can never provide the answer you are looking for, whether it’s a solution to a problem or an important decision about what direction to take with your life. External things and people can never make you feel good in any meaningful, long-lasting way. It’s only when you drop down into that amazing, wonderful space of your inner, divine self—connecting to the pure, positive energy of the quantum field—do you get profound, intuitive guidance that only comes from a place of pure goodness and joy.
There is nothing to fix. Nothing needs changing. The real, divine you is already perfect waiting for you to listen and connect. Instead of giving away your power to the people, events and circumstances that make up your physical reality, embrace the profound guidance, wisdom, and pure, positive energy that is the real you. Let go to your powerful, divine intuition and watch the magic happen. The truth is the Oracle is you.

What if it were true? What if you were connected to this vast, invisible, vibrating, conscious energy field? The universal mind. Source energy. Divine intelligence. The quantum field. Or what some call God.
What if quantum physics were right? What if you were powerful beyond measure? What if you could be, do or have anything?
It is. You are. You can.
From the 1988 hilarious Christmas comedy Scrooged based on Charles Dickens’ novel A Christmas Carol, Bill Murray plays Frank Cross, a bitter, cynical television network executive, who on Christmas Eve after being visited by three ghosts, joyfully shouts out “I get it now!”
“. . . it’s the one night of the year when we all act a little nicer, we, we, we smile a little easier, we, w-w-we, we, we cheer a little more. For a couple of hours out of the whole year, we are the people that we always hoped we would be! It’s a miracle . . . I get it now! . . . If you believe in this pure thing . . . the miracle will happen and then you’ll want it to happen again tomorrow . . . It can happen every day! You’ve just got to want that feeling! And if you like it and you want it, you’ll get greedy for it. You’ll want it every day of your life, and it can happen to you! I believe in it now. I believe it’s gonna happen to me now. I’m ready for it! And it’s great. It’s a good feeling . . .”
I’ve always loved this lighted-hearted interpretation of the holiday classic. And no matter how many times I watch it, the ending with Frank Cross shouting to the world “I get it now” always gives me goose bumps and fills me with this overwhelming sense of hope and belief in our ability to connect with something that is much greater than our physical selves.
More than a century ago, scientists made a mindboggling breakthrough proving what spiritual teachers and ancient texts have embraced for thousands of years:
The universe and everything in it is pure, vibrating energy.
That’s right, everything. From the physical to the non-physical, from the seen to the unseen, you, me, the universe, and everything in-between, are all made up of the same stuff: energy or light.
What was previously believed about atoms, matter and all physical things was turned on its head by quantum physics. Simply put quantum physics is the study of tiny, invisible particles of matter. So what happened when quantum scientists drilled down beyond atoms, particles or matter? They found subatomic particles. And when they looked beyond subatomic particles? They found energy. Pure, vibrating energy. Hence, the amazing world of quantum weirdness was born. The lines between science and spirituality were forever blurred.
It all started with Max Planck, considered the father of quantum physics, who determined that waves of energy or light are not one continuous wave, but are tiny packets of vibrating energy that he called quanta. So now energy waves could be looked at like particles: discrete lumps of something. Then Albert Einstein followed with his breakthrough that all matter is energy. Finally, it was Niels Bohr and a group of other quantum pioneers that came along and proved that energy can be both waves and particles, but not both at the same time. Now that is weird. This quantum weirdness is called wave-particle duality.
“If Quantum Mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.” — Niels Bohr
As a wave, subatomic particles can take every possible path at the same time. In other words, this energy can be waves or particles until observed. The staggering conclusion is the stuff you are made of is essentially an infinite wave of possibilities in a quantum field of pure potential. And only when you focus your attention on this wave of energy with your beliefs, thoughts and expectations, do all probabilities collapse and matter is formed. You literally create your own reality with your consciousness. This isn’t magic. This is science. The universe and everything in it only exists, because you as part of the quantum field of energy, think it into being.
With this discovery Newton’s theory, describing everything in the universe as solid matter and moved only by gravity, was debunked. The way the scientific world would look at atoms, the building blocks of all things in the universe that are both physical and non-physical, would never be the same.
We now know that atoms are made of smaller subatomic particles. These subatomic particles are made of something even smaller called quanta. And finally, quanta are packets or discrete waves of vibrating energy. So you, me, the universe, the stars, plants, animals, sound, wind, thoughts, laptops—you get the idea—are all made of the same stuff. We all come from this one source of energy. The quantum field of energy.
We now know that this this energy is wave forms of probability in an infinite field of probabilities. And that physical matter doesn’t exist, but shows tendencies to exist until observed. Our thoughts or consciousness create and have created all things in our reality including the universe we live in. This can only mean the quantum field of energy is a connected, eternal, omnipresent consciousness. An infinite source of pure potential of every seen and non-seen thing, thought, belief and intention that ever is, was, or will ever be. A divine consciousness where everything that exists is a product of your thoughts. An infinite universal mind that each and everyone of us is connected to and has at our disposal.
But how do you know you are connected? If the weirdness of wave-particle duality is not enough to convince you, let’s look further into quantum weirdness with what scientist call entanglement. But first let’s review one more time what you know so far. A drop of water, the ocean, nature, wind, thoughts, iphones, your body, your senses—everything and I mean everything—is made of the same energy. All physical and non-physical things are made of atoms. All atoms are made up of subatomic particles. All subatomic particles are made of pure energy. One vast source of energy. These waves of energy are probabilities until acted upon by your beliefs, thoughts and expectations. Once acted upon or observed, they attract other particles of energy with the same vibrational match, from the quantum field of energy, and form the things you see in your reality. You literally create your own reality.
“All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force . . . We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.” — Max Planck
Now, back to entanglement. Entanglement is what Einstein referred to as “Spooky action at a distance.” Scientists discovered that when a particle is split into two and then separated by large distances, and it doesn’t matter how far, what you do to one particle instantly affects the other particle. As if they are instantly communicating with each other. But wait, we learned in school that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. So what’s going on? The only conclusion is they don’t need to travel to communicate. They are entangled. Atoms, subatomic particles and the energy that comprises them, are all infinitely connected. Which means you, me, the universe and everything else, are all infinitely connected. We are all entangled. Spooky indeed.
There is much more. So much more. But this is a good start. You now know the physical body you occupy that is made of cells is more than just a lump of solid matter. Cells are molecules. Molecules are atoms. Atoms are subatomic particles. And subatomic particles are pure vibrating, energy or light. Even more powerful are your beliefs, thoughts and expectations. They too are made of the same pure, vibrating energy of the universe, but carry a much more potent vibration. Like all matter and non-matter, they carry a unique vibrating frequency that attracts other packets of similar vibrations that join together to create matter, things or your reality. You come from the same source of energy that creates worlds. You are a powerful creator. This isn’t fantasy. This is science.
As Frank Cross in the movie Scrooged happily declared, “I get it now!” Happiness, abundance, and success are not random events, luck or happenstance. On the contrary, all of that and more is available to you. It’s your divine right. Let me be clear. You are powerful beyond measure. However, it has also been said, “With great power, comes great responsibility.”
Are you ready to accept that responsibility? Are you ready to embrace that the events and circumstances of your life aren’t the result of random acts of the universe out of your control? Are you ready to be more? Are you ready to “Be Something Wonderful?”
