Please, can we talk about amusement?
Amusement comes from the French. It’s sometimes defined as a diversion or a distraction from “fixation”; it can cause a “cognitive shift “from one state of mind to another. How often have you trundled through life all serious about a relationship or a job or the future, then something surprising and delightful happens to divert your attention? That’s a big shift in energy! Suddenly you’re more present and everything else falls away. You just plain feel better.
Try setting your crown to amusement when you start your day. Vibrate that quality and let it fill you in.
Now, if you want to be amused on a daily basis for years at a time—consider the chicken. They lurch to and fro across the yard, they take every opportunity to invite themselves into the house then just stand there astonished, and they make a sound like tires squealing. If the only thing I do is take time to watch my chickens, I’m already happy and it’s only 7:00 a.m.
One day I set my crown to amusement and went shopping. There was nothing otherwise remarkable about my outing. I stopped at a light and, with nothing more important to do, I turned and looked at the young man in the car next to mine. In the same moment he looked at me and we both smiled; it was a completely authentic moment and I felt delighted. The light changed, we drove away from each other and that’s the end of the story. But it happened 10 or more years ago and I still remember it because it was such a joyful exchange. I felt uplifted for days.
In these cases, two things are happening: one, I feel better to begin with, because my aura is set to amusement. Two, I’m magnetically attracting experiences that validate that vibration.
There are other ways to bring this beautiful, supportive quality into your life. If you prefer, you can also use your clairvoyant tools to move out any serious, “fixated” energy, filling yourself in with a gold sun of amusement.
