Not Everyone Wants You to be Joyful

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for

Synopsis of  “Creation Energies,” my, 15-minute, channeled radio show, for the week of June 13: This week you are receiving extra energy bursts to help you shift your fears to sunshine – the “Pollyanna” approach.

Dear Ones,

Let us touch upon a subject we have alluded to previously in preparation for the energy activities of the next few weeks. The New Age/new earth is about love and joy. Fear is no longer the key element in your New Age being. You are shifting and morphing into a being of sunshine. Not that fear will disappear, it will merely be as fleeting as joy was in the Old Age.

Not everyone will be pleased with your new sunny demeanor. Some of the people you care about most, including friends, relatives and co-workers, will not want you to be happy. For when you claim your happiness, they will feel isolated.

Some of you have lived with or known others who are chemically dependent. Have you noticed that when the chemically dependent person stops using, those closest to the chemically dependent person often encourage them to return to their chemicals?

The same type of dance is obvious in “dysfunctional” families, offices, governments and institutions. To retain the status of pain, it is necessary to be in pain. If everyone were joyous, what would happen to martyrs, co-dependent persons and those who love the entanglements of pain?

You created systems that perpetuate pain because you were studying pain in the Old Age. You have moved through your pain issues with accolades from the Universes. Your difficulty now is moving into joy with an equal fervor.

Pollyanna, of the early 1900’s Pollyanna book series, was as much of a role model for you, as is true for those figures in history you hold dear because they lived and loved from their heart. The New Age/new earth thoughts have seeped into your consciousness slowly for generations in preparation for this time.

Any joyful thinking or model has been a seed for this New Age/new earth transition. You no longer need such seeds for you are in the midst of the New Age/new earth transition.

But we digress. We wish for you to know that just as a personality like Pollyanna was considered an anomaly in the early 1900’s, so too will be the thoughts for some of the people around you. They will believe that you are not seeing or are ignoring fear and trauma.

How can you be joyful when they are not? You have had a role to play that met their needs for pain – whether you caused the pain or merely helped them “boo-hoo” their way through. Now that you are shifting, perhaps even playing the role of what you term, “tough love,” they are getting angry. They want their misery to continue. That is what life is all about – for them at least.

So some of your friends, relatives, co-workers and institutions will do everything possible to return you to fear and a life of pain. Who will support them if you will not?

What if all of you refused to watch media reports unless they were positive? You know the answer. The media do not care what it reports as long as it draws a certain audience. What would happen if you refused to vote for any candidate who did not feel hopeful and joyful about the future? And what would happen if you refused to listen to stories of woe that could be solved if the person in question merely changed perspectives?

Past eons have defined the glass as “half empty”. Future eons will define the glass as “half full”. But many still wish to cling to the glass half empty approach. In a sense, they opt for extra credit pain classes – which no longer exist.

Those who laugh at your positive and yes, glowing outlook on life are not interested in moving into joy yet. They may do so tomorrow, next year or in their next life. That is their choice. Your role and only role is to feel the joy that is starting to bubble up within you. Yes, you can create the life you want. In fact, this is the Age in which you must create the life you want. And you must do so despite the laughter of others.

In the past, the extremely wealthy or high academic achievers were treated with disdain. Because the masses wanted those outstanding people on the same fearful level they were. Even those given accolades for their seemingly impossible achievements, had to contend with the naysayers – those who felt the need to bring the featured person to their level. A bit like your vision of hell (which doesn’t exist by the way) in which the devil’s helpers are pulling those on earth into a pit of fire.

It is time to change that fire pit image into one in which the sun is shining and the angels are out in full force guiding you to your joy and peace. For indeed, that is how dramatic this transition is.

What are you to do about those who continue to return you to thoughts of fear? That is your choice. But as a novice joy seeker, it will be more difficult for you to accept joy if you surround yourself with those who scoff at the idea. Just as is true for those who no longer wish to use chemicals.

Perhaps it is time to seek the company of others who wish to move into joy. Perhaps not. That is your choice. But know that not everyone in your world will be pleased with your joyful demeanor. Nor will everyone wish to support you as you move further into the New Age. But then, the same was true for the earth explorers and those brave souls who created the implements you now use on a daily basis including automobiles, airplanes, and computers.

Listen to your inner voice. No one knows you better than you know yourself. If you are reading these materials, you are moving into joy. Allow that to be your focus. And allow yourself to distance yourself from those who wish you to continue your interest in fear.

It is time for joy – just as it was time for automobiles. You truly can live a life of joy with small, very small dabbles of fear. Ignore or distance yourself from those who laugh at you or say something to the contrary.

Your movement into personal joy is no different from the invention of the electric light bulb – it requires concentration, dedication and the belief that it is possible. None of which can be accomplished surrounded by people who wish you to live in fear. So be it. Amen.      If you would like to receive my free blogs as they are posted, please click the Subscribe Button on the upper part of my subscribe page and then click the – Subscribe to Brenda’s Blog by E-mail – line.

    I think about the Abraham quote :”First reach for joy and all else follows”.
    Yesterday I experienced just what you have discussed – an old friend was insisting on clinging to her misery and when I did not participate, she was so hurt.
    Ah, the times – they are truly a’changing!

    Dear Karen,
    No lie. Misery loves company is such an apt phrase. Can’t wait until a similar “truth” is created for joy.
    Love Brenda

    Yay! What a perfect message. I let go of watching the news years ago but I noticed I am also letting go of folks who are not joy filled in my world.

    So so so wonderful to read this and feeling so joyful and filled with love and light.

    Blessings to you sweet sister goddess lightworker friend…..

    To Karen and Brenda. love and hugs from afar.

    Hi Elizabeth!
    I still watch the news sometimes but much, much less than I used to. The news seems like a soap opera – you can miss a year or two of a soap opera and know exactly what’s happened to the characters because so little has changed – and the changes that have happened are rehashed so many times you don’t miss a beat in the action!

    I also find it almost painful being around people who elect to ignore joy or to change their perception of “the world is going to hell in a hand basket.” (have you ever wondered what that phrase means?)
    Blessings to you and a world of sunshine and joy.
    Love Brenda

    I stopped watching the news a while ago and then we stopped getting the newspaper – I have friends who act like I am being irresponsible – for what? I am getting so much more secure in knowing that how I choose to live is my business and if I choose joy – well……good for me!


  • 6. lifetapestrycreations  |  June 14, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Hey Karen,
    Way to go!
    Love Brenda


  • 7. Elizabeth Sadhu  |  June 15, 2011 at 10:23 am

    Amen to you my dear sisters. Yes, I have had folks tell me how irresponsible I am but Brenda puts it well, a soap opera that has not changed over time. OY!

    Choosing joy, love, light, bliss…….however that looks to each person.

    love to you both!!!!

    I love the line – “Choosing joy, love, light, bliss…..however that looks to each person.” I just keep remembering that anyone eating yogurt used to be “way out there” And so it goes (and happens).

    Love and light to you both.

    When I first stopped drinking, I chose to stay away from bars, parties, and others who were imbibing. It was a good choice for me. It helped me focus on being clean and sober and growing.

    19 years later, I have absolutely no problem being around people who are drinking and I will occasionally visit a bar with friends.

    How is this possible? It is possible because I understand that alcohol was MY problem. I do not visit my problem on others. Nor do I judge others and try to decide whether or not they have a problem with alcohol. Who am I to judge them?

    But more importantly, I understand that other people’s choices do not effect me. My only job is to focus on what I want, Feel that into being, and allow (not tolerate) others to make their own choices.

    While there are times when I choose to distance myself from fear-based, negative people, I understand that it is because I am not fully focused on what I want and therefore, more vulunerable to those peoples’ thoughts and words. My goal is to be absolutely focused, comfortable, peaceful, and loving right in the midst of all of it. I want to be okay with myself and okay with others.

    I truly believe we cannot lose at this game of life. We can make it hard, miserable, unpleasant, or frustrating, or we can make it glorious, happy, joyful, fun, and peaceful. I choose the latter.

    Dear Holly,
    YEAH to you! It appears as if you have been making wonderful choices in your life for some time – not easy for many people. Kudos to you. What a wonderful role model you are. I’ve always believed that each of us have something “special” to share with others. You probably have other specialities also but the one you described is just wonderful and something many struggle with daily. Keep up the wonderful work of being yourself.
