Activate Joy: Live Your Life Beyond Limitations by AlixSandra Parness shows how to navigate life with a positive outlook despite a plethora of negations that face most people. Negations represent thoughts that argue against you at every turn.
AlixSandra Parness characterizes these thoughts as yabbits. The influential yabbits represent hoarding, over-control, perfectionist tendencies, rationalizations, analysis paralysis, procrastination and a host of behaviors that halt our advancement due to incessant internal questioning and doubts about the self. Serious self reflection can thwart negative thoughts and unwarranted doubts. Joy is ever present even when our hearts are breaking due to failure or loss.
The author explains that each person creates a unique reality. Passion is born of new ways of thinking, attitudes and individualized experiences. Our thoughts and feelings draw things to us by the Law of Resonance. These thoughts and
emotions create unarticulated new possibilities which free us from outmoded thinking and rehashing past outcomes- particularly negative ones.
In 2012, the author explains how the Milky Way, our sun, and the earth itself will realign. This realignment is said to occur every twenty six thousand years. The author draws religious references on occasion. For instance, Christ said “I am in the world but not of it.”
Activate Joy is a wonderful book which aims to provide cheer and joy in place of the expectation of failure and self doubt. The presentation is easy to read and understand — much like The Power of Positive Thinking by Dr. Normal Vincent Peale. Both books are unparalleled in their extraordinary capacity to remove self doubt, worry, stress, and resentment from daily life.
