Tools to Know What Makes You Happy

Oct 24, 2021

What would you choose?

What makes you happy? What sparks joy for you? What lights you up?

These are simple questions that some people struggle to find the answer to. If you’re one of them, this episode is for you. You just have to know where and how to look, and these tools from Access Consciousness will guide you in this journey to know what that is for you. You will be surprised to know how much of what makes you happy can be in places you least expect it to be. *wink*


In this episode, I will cover:

    • [04:04] Why we don’t know what makes us happy
    • The three (3) tools from Access Consciousness to know what makes you happy 
      • [05:53] Tool #1
      • [13:14] Tool #2
      • [18:35] Tool #3
    • Clearings to help you create and add joy to your life

To know what makes you happy, you have to:

  1. Educate yourself on “distractor implants”
  2. Clearing the DJCCPSERRJs, trying everything, and choosing
  3. Ask: “Universe (and body), show me…”

If you want to dive deeper on these, you can join us on the Living Beyond Distraction Book Club or #getyourbutttoFoundation – I have an upcoming Online Foundation this December 2021 and would love for you to join us.   

You can also show some love for the radio show by simply Buying Me a Coffee. How does it get any better than that?! I’m excited and would be so grateful to receive a cup of coffee from you, my sweet friend.

They are sent out each week to everyone on my mailing list! 


[00:00] Hello and welcome to Tools to Create a Better Life with myself, Glenyce Hughes. Thank you so much for being here. I am so incredibly grateful for you. 


[00:12] So, I have a few new things to share. One, we now have show notes for the radio shows —  I believe it started in maybe late August of 2021 or early September of 2021. But you can actually go to my web page > Radio Shows, and when you click on each one, you’ll find the show notes there. They’re time stamped. All the awesomeness is available for you at your fingertips. And if you are listening to this on a podcast, you can go to the show notes on the podcast, and it’ll take you to those exact notes. Yeah, there we go. That’s number one. 


[00:58] Number two new thing around here, if you’re not in the know, is that the weekly email that I send out has been “up-leveled,” let’s call it that. So we have, of course, the weekly video that I’ve been doing for years. We also, of course, will put in the weekly radio show in there. 


Now, we’ve added — there’s a little Success Story from from a client or somebody who’s attended a class in there. There is [also] the Clearing that I’m Using that week. Now, of course, I use more than one clearing in a week. But [it’s] just the one that pops for everybody that will be listening so, that’s in there. And also, What’s Inspiring Me – so, something — maybe there’s a podcast I listened to [or] a program. There’s so many options it’s going to be.


So, if you are not part of my e-mail list, get your butt on my email list! What are you waiting for? You can find more on a link somewhere here. You can go to and there’ll be the opt in page. We’d love to have you with us. 


[02:07] Now, number three new thing around here is you can now Buy Me a Coffee. How’s it get any better than that? I didn’t even know this was a thing. I heard about it recently and I was like, “I am excited to receive coffees from all of my listeners around the world.” How the heck did I get so lucky? 


So, if you go to the web page: — and you’ll find the link somewhere here too for that also — I would so be grateful for a cup of coffee from you. How does it get any more magical than that? 


[02:54] All right, here we are. Now, what is the show this week? I’ve actually wrote down a few notes so you might see me look at them here. But the show is Tools to Know What Makes You Happy. Yeah, because that’s a big thing for a lot of people. A LOT of people. And I actually used to have that, too — “I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what would make me happy. I don’t know. As soon as I know, then I’ll choose it and I’ll be happy.” 


Ah, so a few things — we got to unpack some of that first, my friends. One, nothing and no one can make you happy. It’s actually a choice. So, I use that as a title. However, it’s really about what makes you joyful, what really creates joy and adds joy to your life. That’s the energy we’re going to be speaking to. And with that, the very first piece of that that you want to look at is THAT– all the “thats”. 


[04:04] When we don’t know what creates joy in our life or what makes us happy, it’s probably because we have spent a lot of time in everybody else’s universe, which means we are looking more at everybody else around us and what would make them happy [or] what brings joy to their life. And you know, at one point, I probably would have told you this is more of a woman’s thing than a man’s thing. But at this point, I’ve worked with enough men to know this is equal. This is equal. 


A lot of men do this and a lot of women do this, where we are so much more invested in the other person than ourselves. We see them as more valuable than us so we start to become more aware of what they would like [or] what works for them. And then you might get asked even, like, “Hey, where would you like to go for dinner?” And you’re like a dear in the headlights, “I-I don’t know, where do you want to go!?” Because you don’t even know that — you haven’t even taken time to be with you to know what that is. 


Now for some people, it doesn’t matter where they go for dinner so that’s fine. But I’m really talking about that energy of like you’ve lost you. You don’t know where you will be. You don’t know what makes you happy but you could give me a list of 100 things [for] the people that you care about. 


So first off, let’s clear all that energy with The Clearing Statement from Access Consciousness. 


Everything that brings up, will you destroy and uncreate it all? Right, wrong, good, bad, all-nine, POD, POC, shorts, boys and beyonds.


[05:53] Yeah, the first step is clearing that insanity. And then, it’s about really — and this is going to be tool number one, which is — it’s kind of a big tool, guys. It’s one that I will tell you right now, and will change every area of your life, if you’re willing. Tool number one is to actually educate yourself on something called the “distractor implants.” 


[06:19] I know right? So, this is something we talk about in Access Consciousness. We talked about it in The Foundation class. So, #getyourbutttoFoundation. I’ve got one coming up — of course I’ve always got one coming up. The next one, at this moment anyway, is December 27 to December 31 [2021]. It’s online, it’s 4 hours a day. Morning in North America, afternoon in Europe. Depending on where you are in Australia, I think somewhere in the middle of the night? [It] just really depends. 


[05:53] And it also — there’s a book called “Living Beyond Distraction” by Gary Douglas and Dain Heer. So, those are the founder [and] co-founder of Access Consciousness and they’ve got this beautiful book all about it. We are actually going to do a deep dive starting November 15. We’re going to have two calls a week on each chapter — there’s six chapters — and we’re just gonna go there, my friends. So, I invite you to join us for that. Also, again, you’ll find the link somewhere. 


If you’re listening to this in the future, you can always find it in my store. If you’ve got any questions, always reach out. 


[07:28] But that is tool number one – is to educate yourself on the distractor implants because if you’re not familiar with them, chances are — and even sometimes when we are familiar with them, chances are we are operating from them. 


Say you’re operating from a distractor implant within your relationship. You will only choose what will create in the relationship. You won’t even be aware of what would create more from a much bigger energy. That’s what distractor implants do: they are designed to distract us from creating greater. They keep us stuck in an energy and what I call like “on a hamster wheel”, you know, where you’re just stressing about something over and over and over and over and over but you’re not actually doing anything to change it. That’s a distractor implant. 


Once you get a sense of what they are and how to change them, it becomes this totally different space. You’ll still be aware of maybe what the other person in the relationship would like. You will still be aware of that, but you won’t give yourself up for it if it doesn’t work for you. You have so many more choices available once you become aware of the distractions that you’re operating from and change them. And so if you would really like to know what makes you happy — honestly, I’m not kidding — that is step number one. Yes. 


All of the distractor implants that you’re operating from to ensure you never know what makes you happy, what contributes joy, will you destroy and uncreate it all? Right, wrong, good, bad, all-nine, POD, POC, shorts, boys and beyonds. 


[09:30] If you never operated from a distractor implant ever again, you would be the infinite being – you’d be infinitely aware of the infinite choices available, with the infinite possibilities. Yeah. There’s so much that can change. 


[09:49] I have been… clearing, I guess? I’m not sure that’s the correct word. But that – clearing the distractor implants in my life since 2012. I attended the very first telecall with Gary and Dane back in 2012 about the distractor implant. I always tell the story in my Foundation because it’s funny to me. 


Back in 2012, that was before Zoom — I know, imagine a life before Zoom — but it was on the phone. And so, I would phone in on the line, the line that everybody else phoned in on. I would put myself on mute, I would put it on speakerphone, and I would literally lay my head on my desk. Not even kidding. I couldn’t keep my head up. That is how much I was operating from distractor implants every area of my life. 


Now, my favorites. My favorites to play with was the business as a distractor. Oh my gosh, guys – I use that all the time. Relationship was a huge distractor. For me, I love to distract myself with “Should I leave? Should I go? Should I leave? He’s not vibrating at the same level as me. I must leave. He doesn’t read the same books as I did. Yes, I must leave. I don’t want to do the same things he does. I must…” Oh my gosh, you get the sense. 


[11:12] In fact, I have a radio show. I’m not… I don’t even recall what year it’s from, but it is called “The Time I Almost Left Hubby.” We’ll put a link to that in the show notes, of course, so that you can go and listen to that one if that reads for you at all. Spoiler alert: It was not just one time. It was maybe, I don’t know, 15-20,000 times a day. Yeah. Okay, maybe that’s extreme, but you get the idea. It was literally how I was distracting myself from creating greater instead of going, “Okay, this relationship doesn’t work. I’m out” and making that choice or going, “Oh, this relationship works. I’m in” and making that choice. It was so much more valuable to distract myself. Yes, insane. (#cutenotbright) Yeah, so those were my favorites. 


[12:07] The other one was jealousy. Jealousy was a huge energy. We also have a show called “The Green-Eyed Monster.” We’ll link to that radio show, too. That’s all about the jealousy and how I changed it for myself. Those were the ones I played with.


[12:24] And so listening to Gary and Dain on the telecall series was… it started to unravel. Believe me, I didn’t change everything in that telecall series. I still am using the tools to clear the distractions that I’m playing with at times. I’m probably about 1,000,000,000% less at the effect of them, and still there’s times. 


These are really something that you want to do a deep dive. You really want to educate yourself and study them. Again, join us for the Book Club, get the book, go to Foundation, join us in Foundation, or whatever you need to do. Educate yourself because that will be a huge piece for you in really starting to get a sense of what creates and and contributes joy to your life in your living. Yes. All right, so check my notes here. 


[13:14] Number two — this is a big one that I see a lot of people do and honestly, I did the same thing. We go, “Okay, I would like to be happier but I don’t know — I don’t know what creates more happiness. I don’t know what that would be. I don’t know what makes me happy. I don’t know, I’ll just sit here and wait until I know.” Spoiler alert again: choice is what will create the awareness. You won’t know until you try something. 


What you want to start doing is looking around and going — okay, so let’s say you hear about a painting class. All right? Truth: if I choose that painting class today, will it create the future I desire or decay the future I desire? If you get create, go. Go create right now, go. If you get decay, then it just doesn’t mean today. It doesn’t mean you could never take a painting class. It’s just not today. That’s why we specifically ask Truth: if I choose this today, if I choose this right now, will it create the future I desire or decay the future I desire? That’s how you want to ask everything. 


Now, the thing that usually trips people up with this is that they conclude about things. They go, “Oh well, I don’t like to paint so I wouldn’t take a painting class.” So even though painting classes might be the thing that really lights your entire world up, you have blocked yourself from receiving that. The clearing that I use all the time on everything — and I suggest people use all the time on everything:


All of the decisions, judgments, conclusions, computations, projections, rejections, expectations, separations, refined judgments that I have about that, I destroy and uncreate it all. Right, wrong, good, bad, all-nine, POD, POC, shorts, boys, and beyonds.


[15:15] Yeah. If you want all those fancy words, you can go to the show notes as I said earlier and access them. 


[15:22] I assume that I’m using painting because that beautiful piece of art behind me, if you’re watching this video, is something I painted. Actually, yes. You can buy a copy of it if you like. I’ve got a whole store with a whole bunch of really inappropriate mugs and such that you can go [to]. The link will be somewhere. If you can’t find it, let me know. 


I didn’t know that I could even paint, let alone that I loved it. It was actually a friend of mine who was doing a lot of painting that really inspired me to try it out. And then recently, I’ve been playing with Procreate, which is an app on the iPad, and I bought an iPad eight months ago. I’ve barely used it – I wasn’t even sure in that in the moment when I was buying it what it was for. I was just aware it was going to create greater to purchase it. And now, it so happens I bought the exact one with all the storage I required to do all this fancy artwork on my iPad. 


If you watch the last couple of weeks videos, those art pieces in the back, those were from Procreate. I used my video editing and I put the image that I’d created in a frame and I put it here. It was so much fun to play with and I’ve just been loving it. Again, I didn’t know until I tried it. 


[16:47] The other one I didn’t know until I tried it — this one honestly still shocks me. A year later — well, not quite a year. Almost a year later, snowshoeing. I know! I did not know.  Last year, we didn’t do any traveling. Normally, we would go away in the winter so I could have some pool time and kind of fill up before I had to wait for my pool to open here in the summer, here in Canada. And last year, we didn’t [travel] due to, you know, the travel restrictions and such. 


We were here all winter long and I knew I had to choose something different because sitting indoors all winter long in Canada, hoping and wishing that summer would come, is not a great use of my creative capacities. So I looked at what was all possible and the one that read was snowshoeing, which I chose and I love. Once we close the pool down here a few weeks ago, that was like, “Oh, now the snow can come. I’m ready to get my snowshoes out.” 


[17:54] So please, guys, be willing to try everything because you don’t know what will create joy. You don’t know what will add and contribute. You might have some ideas — definitely try those, but also be willing to ask about the things you have resistance about. Like me with snowshoeing, those sorts of things. 


Everything you haven’t been willing to try, will you destroy and uncreate it all times a gazillion? Right, wrong, good, bad, all-nine, POD, POC, shorts, boys, and beyonds. 


And then of course the question is Truth, if I choose this right now, will it create the future I desire or decay the future I desire? Again, those will be in the show notes too, guys. 


[18:35] All right, so number three, so I remember. This is one that I would suggest if this is a topic that you’ve really been interested in. You’ve really been wondering how to have more happiness or joy or create that really yummy, delicious energy that matches those words. 


[Ask] every day: Universe, show me. Show me what will add joy to my life. Show me what will add laughter to my life. Show me what will add orgasmic energy to my life. Whatever the word is, or whatever matches the energy, ask every day. Maybe multiple times a day – Universe, show me. The other one that I like to ask is Body, show me. Universe, show me. Body, show me. You could do Universe and body, show me what will contribute joy to our life. 


The more you ask, the more it will start to show up. Then again, we go back to you’ve got to be willing to ask if it’s going to create the future desire; if you get a yes, then choose it. Choose it, get out of the DJCCPSERRJs, and just choose it. You don’t have to choose that 100 times; you can just choose it once. Get a sense – you’ll know right away if it’s creating the future you desire or not. And that will add so much. 


[19:57] I know for myself like the swimming pool for me is a huge one. Like, I never knew how much it would contribute. Prior to having a home that had a swimming pool, we would spend –you know, depending – maybe a month, maybe two months, maybe two weeks, depending on the year — [on] places that had swimming pools. 


If you would have asked me then, I probably would have told you that it would — like, having it for short periods contributed more. Because if I had it for a long period, I probably wouldn’t use it as much. I mean, I’m not sure what I would have said but I don’t think — I know I did not know the contribution to having a home with a swimming pool. I had no clue until we had it and what that actually contributed to my life and my living. There’s not actually words and of course, there’s many other things but that’s the greatest example in my life along with this whole Procreate thing, this app that’s on the iPad, which is like an art app. It has added so much because it’s that energy – it’s that energy that I don’t have words for but it’s absolute joy and creation and vibrancy and intensity and yumminess and all those energies that actually create your life. I


It’s nurturing for my body, whether I’m in the swimming pool or I’m playing on Procreate or I’m snowshoeing or all the other things that add to my life. Like, there’s so much nurturing and kindness and expansion in my world with those things. And the more that we can add that energy to our life, the more we’ll be that energy consistently. Everything that doesn’t allow that, will you destroy and uncreate it all, my sweet friends? Right, wrong, good, bad, all-nine, POD, POC, shorts, boys, and beyonds. Yeah.


Of course, painting for myself – painting on my face for myself, having so much fun in the makeup room. Now that the pool is closed, I do that way more often because in the summer, I don’t want makeup on  – I’m in the pool. 


[22:15] So you know, there’s just so much I could say with this. But really, recognizing step one is definitely — become aware of the distractor implant so you can stop distracting yourself and start choosing what would be fun for you, and then looking at trying everything and really getting out of the lies and the limitations and the points of views that are probably not yours any way that you can’t or you shouldn’t or you’re too old. I mean, oh my gosh. Oh my gosh, that is a huge one for so many people. 


All the lies you bought or sold that you are too old to have fun, to be joyful, will you just destroy and uncreate all that? Right, wrong, good, bad, all-nine, POD, POC, shorts, boys, and beyonds. 


[23:05] You know I’m thinking of, there’s a like a “meme” like, if somebody tells you, you know, you’ve put too much sugar on your cereal, you should kick them out of your life because you don’t need that sort of negativity. I always giggle [with] those. It’s kind of the same thing, like if somebody tells you you’re too old to wear crazy makeup or to wear certain clothes or to swim in a bikini or to I don’t know – skydive, whatever it is. If they’re telling you that, get them out of your life.


Okay, that might be extreme but you know what I mean. Stop listening to them. Stop listening to them. Please. This is your life. This is for you, and if you’re not living your life for you, then chances are you are not listening to this radio show at this point so I don’t need to speak. You would have turned it off much earlier. But truly, look at that. Look where you’re not living for you and look at what it would be like if you did. 


Now I don’t mean “in exclusion of.” I don’t mean you’re living for you so everybody else is excluded. I just mean in your life, would you consider for a moment including you? Everything that doesn’t allow that, will you destroy and uncreate it all? Right, wrong, good, bad, all-nine, POD, POC, shorts, boys, and beyonds. 


[24:24] Include you in your life and your living. Include you in the magic that you create on the planet. Include you in the miracles that you add, that you BE. Anything that doesn’t allow that – Right, wrong, good, bad, all-nine, POD, POC, shorts, boys, and beyonds. 


Oh my gosh, guys. Thank you so much for being here. I’m so incredibly grateful for you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I look forward to playing with you somewhere online or maybe somewhere on this beautiful planet soon. Have a great week. I look forward to chatting again next week.
