People in the olden days believe that the egg is a symbol of eternity. It is also believed to be a sign of resurrection by the early Christianity. Therefore it is auspicious to bring an egg as a gift to a new mother. The egg will bring good luck to the mother and child. In England, a gift of a white egg bring good luck while a gift of brown egg will bring both luck and happiness.

In Hong Kong, when a person is said to sell salted duck eggs, it generally means the person is dead.

Breaking A Mirror

Read to me :

It is said that breaking mirror will bring 7 years of bad luck. The mirror does not bring you the bad luck but the image it reflect.

This superstition has existed for many centuries even before the invention of the mirror. Even the aboriginal people who never see a mirror in their life, also believe this superstition.

Since the beginning of times, people believe that to see his own image is to see his own soul. Before the invention of mirror, the only way to see one’s reflection is to look into a pool of water. When someone throw a stone into the water and break the reflection in the water, many people believe that bad luck will follow because as the reflection disappear,  the soul of the person will disappear and death will result.

Horace Friess All seasons are beautiful for the person who carries happiness within.

Horace Friess says that everything is beautiful to you when you are happy.

Ramona L. Anderson: People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within.

Many people searches for things, people or events to make them happy. But happiness comes from our inside.

If we keep thinking of how we are scolded by our boss, we won’t be happy even when we are out of the office. When we keep thinking of the arguement we had with our partners, colleagues or spouse, we won’t be happy as well.

This method will make you feel nothing when you think about the event again. You will erase the feeling you had with the event.

NLP Method

  • Step1. Imagine you are watching the event on a cinema screen. Watch how your boss scold you. Watch how you argue with your colleague or spouse.
  • Watch the movie in color. Watch it like a camera filming you in action. You must see yourself in the film.
  • Step2. Rewind the whole movie backwards very fast like a VCD/DVD player rewinding backwards. See how your boss, your colleague or your spouse swallow their words from the air.
  • Do the rewinding 10 times or more.
  • Now do step 1 and check if you had any more feeling when you watch the movie again. You will find the feeling reduced or totally gone. You can repeat step 2 until you have zero feeling about the event.

This method is very useful to me in my work and life. Try it and believe.

Read to me :

Laughter brings happy feelings. Modern neurophysiology states that laughter is linked with the activation of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex. This produces endorphins which produces a good sense of feeling.

Try to apply the laughter method when you are alone, for example, in a shower, in your bedroom or in your car. You don’t want people to interrupt your practice.

Laughter Method 01

  • Imagine that you are an actor/actress.
  • In your script, you are suppose to laugh after hearing a joke.
  • Pretend to laugh for 15-30 seconds. Laugh loudly with the sound "Ha! Ha! Ha!". Don’t laugh in silent because it won’t work.

Laughter Method 02

  • Read a joke or think of something funny/happy happen in your life.
  • Laugh loudly for 15-30 seconds. Laugh as if it is so very funny.

If you can laugh until your tears comes out, you will feel good.

Happiness Formula

Read to me :

The main reason for the things we do in our everyday life is to pursue happiness. All of us without exception, wanted to be happy and to be free from pain.

We want to be rich so that money will make us happy and solve our problems. We want to be successful because we believe success will make us happy. We want to get marry because we believe that the other person will make us happy. Some of us want to have kids because we believe kids will make the marriage life happier. Others who don’t want to have kids because they believe kids will not bring as much happiness but more pain.

When we examine closely at our life, we are consistently in pursuit of happiness. To many of us, happiness seems to be always in a distant planet. When we get married, our honey moon happiness does not seems to last long as we face the real facts of debt. When we have children, the joy that our kids brings us seems to be over shadowed by the pain of taking care of them. When we achieve success, that happiness feeling does not seems to last for more than a week. Is happiness out of our reach?

In the next 3 entry, we will show you 3 methods to increase your happiness instantly.

For now, let’s listen to what others think of happiness.
