52 Weeks of Joy

Welcome to the 26 Days of Happiness! Today is day 13. Please meet featured author David McLeod from the soon to be released book: The Wellness Universe Guide to Complete Self-Care, 25 Tools for Happiness, sharing their inspiring story!


In 2019, I wrote a couple of blog articles for The Wellness Universe: 10 Ways to Make Yourself Happy and 31 Life Mastery Affirmations for August. For today’s article, I decided to combine those two ideas together and bring you some inspirational affirmations that can help you exercise and expand your happiness muscles for a whole year! I’m also including a separate video that contains some of my original Life Mastery Music™, coupled with an amazing graphical visualization, that you can use in combination with any one of the affirmations below to get you totally charged up for your entire day.

What is Life Mastery Music?

Life Mastery Music™ is a special form of trance-meditation music that is designed to provide healing, stress reduction, inner peace, and many other benefits. Cyclical or repetitive musical elements involving various combinations of rhythm, melody, and harmony provide a synergistic blend of energy that warms the heart, moves the body, quiets the mind, and activates the soul.

Every Life Mastery Music™ track incorporates the following features:

  • 100% original music composed, mixed, and mastered by me
  • 20-25 minutes of cyclical or repetitive musical movements (between 4 and 7 per track) that induce a gentle trance effect
  • Musical elements based on multiples or fractions of the Schumann Resonance (or Earth Resonance) frequency of 7.83 Hz
  • Embedded Brainwave Entrainment technology—specifically, binaural beats or isochronic tones—that activates your brain in alpha and theta states
  • Gently moving rhythms that resonate within your body
  • Multiple layers of melodic and harmonic content that move systematically through the audio space, creating a full spectrum, 360-degree, holistic listening experience

What About the Video Component?

I wanted to provide some kind of abstract video background for the music, and I learned about a tool called MilkDrop, which comes pre-packaged with an audio player called WinAmp. The embedded MilkDrop tool is so powerful that I decided to use it as a way of visualizing my music. It took a little time to figure out how to capture the visualization at high definition on video, but after some experimentation, I came up with a solution that adds a whole new dimension to the meditation experience.

How to Use this Joy Tool

Below, you will find 52 Life Mastery Affirmations™, each of which has its own unique power to help you stay connected to the natural joy and happiness that are a part of your essence. The idea is that you choose one affirmation and focus on it at least once a day. Repeat this process daily for a week, and then at the start of the following week, choose a new affirmation.

Here is what I recommend as a daily practice. I prefer to start my day with this, but really, you can do it anytime; the main thing is that it works best if you do it regularly.

  1. Grab your journal and pen, your laptop, a pair of high-quality noise-cancelling headphones, and choose a quiet place where you can listen and meditate in silence for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Feel free to include any special items you wish to use (candles, incense, sacred objects, etc.).
  3. Have the music video ready to go, but don’t turn it on yet. You can listen to the music only, or if you like, you can watch the video visualization at the same time. If you plan to watch the video, then I’d recommend selecting full screen mode on your computer.
  4. Sit in a comfortable position and take a few deep breaths. As you gently inhale, say the words “I am”; as you gently exhale, say the word “relaxed.” Repeat this about 12 times and feel yourself becoming more relaxed with each breath cycle.
  5. Say your chosen affirmation out loud at least 12 times. Allow about 10 seconds of silence after each repetition to allow the affirmation to resonate in your body.
  6. Now, put on your headphones and start the music and video playback. You can ignore the video portion altogether if you wish; if so, just let your eyes gently close as the music plays.
  7. While the music is playing, bring your attention back to the affirmation every 20 seconds or so, and repeat the affirmation silently in your mind. Keep your breathing gentle and relaxed.
  8. After about 20 minutes, you will hear the sound of the final gong and the music will fade to silence.
  9. Remain in silence for a couple more minutes and repeat the affirmation a few more times in your mind.
  10. Take a few minutes to record your experience in your journal and make a commitment to embrace and embody the affirmation throughout your day.

Your 52 Life Mastery Affirmations™

These affirmations are given in a particular order here, but you are not in any way required to go through them in that order. Choose one that resonates with you right now and use that for a week, then choose another for the second week, and a different one for the third week and so on. The important thing is to choose a different affirmation each week and to go through them all in a year. You can certainly continue for multiple years if you choose, but I recommend that you follow the same policy of choosing a different affirmation each week.
