THE HAPPINESS EFFECT.

Are you wondering why your not healthier, happier, or more abundant? Has life seemed to pass you by and now your looking for a new source of joy? Do you run out of energy during the day, get annoyed by little things at home or at work?

All of these symptoms can be fixed with a naturally healthy body and a positive, grateful mindset. In nature when a plant has all the nutrients, water, sunlight and oxygen that it needs, it will grow perfectly, fighting off pests and disease with ease. Your body and mind are the same as a plant in nature. When you are not creating negative side effects by consuming processed chemical laden foods, and synthetic drugs, or filling your mind with negativity (think watching the news) then you will grow perfectly as well.

Like nature, growing perfectly takes time, and intentional, consistent positive actions. Eating and medicating naturally, as well as being grateful, and finding the good in every life circumstance, is how you take positive actions in your life.

An easy first step is by following along as I release chapters of my book THE HAPPINESS EFFECT. I will take you through my life’s journey from an unhappy, unhealthy victim, to a happy, healthy winner. After hearing my story, and some simple life shifts that will start your journey to a better life, you will learn about natural foods that have healing power. (actually all of nature provides healing benefits). Once you have the knowledge of how natural nutrients work better than synthetic substances, you will learn about how being in nature is the easiest way to maintain good health. Finally I teach simple steps you can take today, to create a happier mindset. You will be able to find positivity in every situation you face.

I hope you not only enjoy the book, but it changes your life! This book was written because the information inside drastically improved my life, ans I know it will improve your life as well…. Enjoy….

Chapter 1

HAPPINESS HAPPENS

Happiness doesn’t grow on trees or spring up from the ground, and it is not something that you can buy at the store. Yet, in our constant search for happiness, we spend millions of dollars on books, tapes, and seminars that teach us how to become more satisfied with life. I personally have spent countless hours and dollars on health and happiness information. Not only have I spent the money and time researching, but I have put into practice much of what I learned. Like many of you I was confused when I was eating healthy and yet I was still incredibly negative. I know people that wake up beaming with sunshine and positive energy, however their bodies are always sick. You may be thinking this is just another self help book that doesn’t fix all the issues, or provide a lifestyle that can help you maintain good health and happiness. But this could be the last book on creating happiness that you need, because it will set your life’s foundation, improving your health by embracing nature, and teaching you how to find positivity all around you. You will learn that abundance follows positivity. From this day forward you will be able to control your own life. You will know how to be healthy and positive every day. You will learn that when you feel happy, abundance flows easily into your life. It happens every time.

For many of us, the idea of not having enough money is why we are not satisfied with our lives. We have been brainwashed into believing that money will solve all of our problems. “If only I had more money, I could…” You might be saying to yourself, “Everyone they show on television with money appears happy, the Kardashians appear pretty happy.” However, money alone does not make you happy, or content with life. You can have money, a nice house, expensive cars, and vacations and still be miserable.

You might think a huge mansion, a new Mercedes, and a million-dollar salary would instantly make you happy. Having lots of money and expensive toys makes life easier and more enjoyable, definitely. But as you know, having things is not the answer. When your favorite pet or a loved one dies, your health fails, or you don’t have any family or friends, you immediately forget how good the material things made you feel. When challenges in life knock on your door, money won’t make you smile anymore. You must first find happiness inside of yourself, and then abundance will follow you. Guaranteed.

What is it about happiness that is so elusive? Why aren’t we all running around with goofy grins on our faces? We all want to be in a total state of bliss, so why aren’t we? Why do we pay for books, videos, and seminars searching for the source of joy? Why is it so hard to find consistent happiness? What is happiness? According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, ‘happiness’ is “the state of well-being and contentment.” Happiness is only an emotion, a feeling. Who controls your feelings and emotions? Only you! I could stop writing this book right now, because the key to happiness is you! There, you have it. The secret is out: the only thing stopping you from being happy is you. Your mind controls your emotions, good, bad, frustrated, relieved, tired, alert, joyful, angry. That fact alone should fill you with joy and positive thoughts.

We are our thoughts. What you think about today, you will become tomorrow. When you learn to control your thoughts, you will become a psychic. You will know exactly how your life is going to turn out. You will know that you are going to be healthy, happy, and abundant, because only you can determine your satisfaction with life.

I was once asked, “How can I make my kids happy?” That is a great question, and the answer is simple. You cannot make someone else be happy. Your children will have to learn how to create happiness for themselves, and they will. However, there is a secret that you can use to help your kids or those around you to become and stay happy. Are you ready to hear this? Here is the secret: When you decide to be happy with yourself and live your life with a positive and grateful attitude, your kids (and most people around you) will want to be like you. Many times when I go to the store I set an intention to be nice to whoever I run into no matter what. This is going to sound crazy, but when I do this everyone in the store smiles at me, or nods their head as if saying hello. If I do run into a negative person, a quick happy response and a big smile usually creates a positive and friendly exchange.

People will be attracted to your happy mindset. It’s an amazing feeling! All of a sudden, you will notice that most people around you are in a good mood. Wherever you go, people will go out of their way to be positive. Your optimism becomes contagious. Your enjoyment with life becomes a happiness magnet to those around you. Your happiness and positivity will bring good things to you and to those you love. This is what I like to call the happiness effect.

The coolest part of this is that the universe is designed to provide you with abundance. Most things in nature have more than they need to survive. A tree in the forest can live for hundreds of years, never moving, and all of its needs are met by nature. There are only four steps that you must take in order to receive this gift of abundance. First of all, you must get your body healthy. If your body does not have the natural nutrients it needs, your mind will never function at one hundred percent, and you will never be completely balanced. The second step is to get your mind healthy. If your brain has all the nutrients that it needs, you will be more positive, and you will be able to see the solutions to your challenges more clearly. The third step is to be grateful. You must be grateful for everything you already have, and everything you are going to receive in the future. Finally, you need to get outside and embrace nature. Nature has healing powers.

That’s all there is to it. It sounds super simple, and it is.

Healthy Body +
Healthy Mind +
Nature +
Gratitude =
Healthy, Happy, Abundant Life.

     In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.      At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.      In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.      One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.      It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016      Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.       As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.       I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.       I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.      Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..      Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.      I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.       With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
