Have you ever noticed that when a baby smiles, the pure joy that he or she brings to everybody that is present? Everyone smiles and enjoys the pure radiant energy coming from the baby. You don’t have to be a parent or a grandparent to experience and enjoy this bliss. Everyone is uplifted and so that at that moment, all negative thoughts disappear. The room just lights up. Four years ago, when I visited my mother in the rehab/nursing center, and she was in a bad mood, I would show her pictures on my phone, of my newly born granddaughter. Immediately her mood would change, and she would smile. It worked like a charm.
As a student of metaphysics, I’m becoming more aware of positive energies, and the factors that cause our vibrations to rise. They also help our bodies heal. It’s often said that laughter is the best medicine, and with a baby smiling or laughing, it will cause everyone to smile. Then as a result, everyone will start to heal. And now that I also have a grandson, and I’m around babies and toddlers more often, I feel that, this experience is just as good as other metaphysical practices that raise our vibrations. I can feel the warmth and joy that they bring to us. The first Mysteries of the Rosary are called the Joyful Mysteries, because they are about the birth and the boyhood of Jesus. I’ve been told that babies can see angels because they haven’t had any limitations placed on them. Maybe that’s what causes them to smile.
I’ve recently been converting family VHS tapes to DVDs. Some are converted from 8mm films that were made when my wife and her siblings were born and were growing up. You could see the joy and love in all of the faces of the parents, grandparents, and other friends and relatives, for the children. Most of the VHS tapes are also of when our son was little. I noticed that he was always the center of attention at family gatherings, and how everyone there smiled and made a fuss over him. Then, as he grew up, each age was special to us, and it’s still true today even now that he is a grown man. The love and joy never end.
All of us have been babies. So, think of the joy that you brought to your parents, grandparents, and others. Some of us may not have the opportunity to be close to babies and children, and some may not have had a happy childhood, but we are all God’s children. We all bring joy to Spirit. It’s estimated that close to 110 billion people have lived on earth with over 7.8 billion living now. But the infinite love from an infinite Being is more than enough for every one of us, and the love is unconditional. So, no matter what we do, God loves each of us for who we are, even more so than a loving parent or loving grandparent does. So, know that when you smile, you bring great joy to Spirit.
