Hope is defined as "a wealth of optimism and an abundance of passion." It's the single greatest positive psychological and emotional influencer in how we live our lives, and how we serve humanity. The promises hope offers are unshakable, as it never succumbs to the paralyzing effects of fear. Instead, hope boosts our spirits and lightens our hearts. Its presence ushers in a higher form of consciousness - the divine consciousness. A consciousness that inspires us to try, and offers the emotional fortitude to preserver.
Hope is the source of our determination and confidence, and it encourages us to be unwavering in the pursuit of our dreams. It lifts us up so we can rise above the obstacles life places before us. Its passionate nature encourages us to stay the course and not allow outside influences to distract or undermine our ability to create what we desire. Hope is the source of our creativity. It offers clarity when the mind is overwhelmed with self-doubt. Hope is a strong, trustworthy anchor provided by our soul. It makes it possible for us to trust what we can't see, and to follow the lead of our instincts.
Psychologically, hope is a powerful change agent. It's the antidote for dread and despair. It changes perceptions, and it changes attitudes. Hope wards off feelings of hopelessness. It's an active, not a passive emotion. When we feel hope, we're able to work through the difficult times and make things happen. Hope sets in motion an entirely new set of expectations. It shifts can't do to can do, and restores our faith that what we desire is attainable.
Physically, hope profoundly impacts our health for the better. In fact, our body is anatomically designed to benefit from hope. Our brain is wired for hope in its neurotransmitters. Hope feeds the mitochondria of our cells. The part of the cell that takes the "All is well" neurotransmitters, and turns what they offer into the vital energy that fuels our body. Hope is also a powerful healer of our immune system. Repeatedly, medical literature is filled with "miracle" stories of remissions, healings, and people who beat the odds of dying. And, they did so because they had hope.
