Before you go to sleep, you have a great opportunity to condition your mind to be more joyful by programming yourself to have joyful dreams. Simply repeat the words, “Joyful dreams,” in a calm and peaceful tone of voice.
You might also suggest ideas for a joyful dream. With patience and persistence, you will eventually see results.
After upgrading the joy in your dreams, you can condition your mind for more courage, kindness, and serenity by suggesting to yourself, “Brain, please create more dreams of courage, kindness, and serenity.”
((Life is Now: Creating moments of joy, courage, kindness, and serenity, p. 153))
