Activating your happiness chemicals

On the health front we are talking about taking the power into our own hands. I hear it all the time that we are more powerful than we believe we are. That we can manifest abundance and wonderful things with merely our thoughts and beliefs. That the body has the ability to heal itself and so much more. Here is a closer look of what we can do to support these magical events and today we are talking about promoting the chemicals that make a positive difference. So here we go…get ready. I’ll introduce the chemical, what it does for us, and ways to promote it.

DOPAMINE – the reward chemical

-complete a task

-doing self care activities

– eating some food

Celebrating your little wins

OXYTOCIN – the love hormones

-playing with a dog (hence I must be overflowing)

-playing with a baby

-holding hands

-hugging someone

-giving someone else a compliment

SEROTONIN – the mood stabilizer



-be in the sun

-walk in nature


ENDORPHIN – the pain relief

-laughing exercise

-essential oils

-eating dark chocolate



We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

    1. I absolutely agree and non matter what it always comes down to a choice. Therefore happiness is our responsibility and is not dependent on something or someone. It can add and help but the decision and what we choose is ours. Wells said. 💙🙏🏼


  1. Wow! This was great! Really loved it. So where can I get these? Are they available by the case?
    I think now that you have made me aware of what I need and now want more of you need to tell us all where we can get these via food or wherever!!
