On most mornings of the week, I post a quote from The Joseph Communications series of books on Facebook and Twitter, the first quote on the list as I write this being this one:
‘Live your life in joy, because in living your life in joy you change your world by putting positivity into the Field.’
... At first glance a simple concept, you might think - although what is this ‘Field’ Joseph mentions, and who, exactly, does he think he is, instructing us to live our lives ‘in joy’ when life here is so darned hard and when there is so much pain and so many personal challenges to overcome each and every day?
‘Joy indeed! He wants to try living my life!’ would surely be the reaction of a number people on first reading the above.
... And that is precisely Joseph’s point.
You see today, no matter what seems to be happening to us on a physical and a mental level, no matter how hard things appear to be for us, no matter how much pain and how many hardships we might be facing, we have the power to choose exactly how we structure our personal and global futures and to alter them from this moment onwards.
If we don’t like what is happening to us right now; if we don’t like what we’re having to cope with, we can decide to become still and quiet for a few minutes today and to redirect our consciousness from outside of ourselves to within ourselves for the duration of those few, vitally important moments. There, quietly centred within, at the heart of ourselves, we can then discover that we have the power to begin to ‘change the story’ by visualising - seeing - the personal life we want to live and to own in our imagination, in our peaceful meditation, and by then infusing those ‘dreams’ with white Light (capital L - as in the Light of God within us).
Equally important, if we don’t like what is happening in the world, we can quietly ‘go within’ today, right now, and again begin to ‘change the story’ by visualising the peaceful, harmonious, non-violent world and society we all want at heart in our imagination, in our meditation, and by then infusing that ‘dream’ with the same, ‘capital L’ white Light and sending that Light out into the world.
‘... And what good will that do?’ you might ask.
Well, all the good in the world, actually.
You see, whatever you might believe yourself to be, you are, at your ‘core’, at the heart of yourself, a spiritual being. And as a spiritual being, your thoughts have great power... because they become reality. You, personally, create the ‘reality’ you perceive around yourself second by second as a result of your viewpoints and what you believe to be true, consciously and sub-consciously. You also contribute, via your thoughts and beliefs as an individual, to our global ‘reality’ because your thoughts and beliefs influence, fuel and help to maintain the quantum ‘field‘ of mankind - the ‘pool’ of global, connected thought-consciousness and perception-maintained ‘reality’ that Joseph refers to in his quote.
Put simply, if you believe in a painful, unhappy existence for yourself, you help to create and maintain that painful, unhappy existence by the constructive power of your beliefs.
If you believe that this is a terrible, violent, power-seeking, corrupt world, you help to reinforce and maintain that vision of a terrible, violent, power-seeking, corrupt world by the constructive power of your beliefs that are sent out subconsciously by you into the ether and affect the ‘status quo’ of this planet.
Therefore, if you truly, truly desire a better, peaceful, happy existence for yourself - and if you truly, truly desire an end to the cruelties and atrocities of this world, you, personally, have to help build that happier, more harmonious personal and global utopia through your daily spiritual ‘time out’ - through those precious and powerful visualisations.
‘Living your life in joy’ does not mean ignoring the problems and challenges you and this world face. It does, however, mean recognising that those problems and challenges are surmountable; recognising that they can be changed, and recognising that you have the power to change them by focusing yourself on the God-within... by focusing on what you really are: an angelic being able to wield immense power for good: the Light that is within you.
So, why not decide to have a good day today? Why not decide to have a great day today? Why not decide to have a life-changing day today... to ignore what is apparently wrong and to begin to create a great, happy, wonderful, good and God-filled day for yourself and for everyone else today, tomorrow and every tomorrow?
The moment you investigate, recognise and acknowledge your personal, spiritual power things will never, ever be the same again for you - and things can and will only get better for you and for the world as a result of your daily spiritual input.
... And that, surely, is a reason to be joyful.

In 2005, he forged a connection with Joseph, a discarnate spokesperson for a vast group soul of evolved and concerned spirits intent on delivering a vital and urgent message to humankind. From that time onwards Michael and fellow Band of Light members, Tony, Jane, and David, have dedicated their lives to accurately receiving, recording and compiling Joseph’s messages into a series of eight powerful volumes known as The Joseph Communications. Michael regards the delivery and promotion of The Joseph Communications as his life ‘mission', and a pivotal contribution to the elevation of individual and global spiritual consciousness.
