Simple Ways to Live a Happy Life

Happiness can start right now.  It won’t come  when you get your dream house or brand new car or new job. It is most often the simplest things in life that bring true happiness.  It needs to start with you, right here, right now.  And here are some simple tips that can help.

1.  Be Grateful. Think of all of the things you are thankful for right now, and you will realize how blessed you are.  By appreciating what you already have in life it will help you feel happier.

2. Smile more. Smiling automatically makes you happier internally.  When you smile see how it affects the people surrounding you.  Even if you have to force a smile when you do not want to, it will make you feel better. Overall smiling makes you happy, which makes your world happy.

3. Do something you love. What is one of your true passions? Is it writing poetry or playing tennis or playing with your children? Whatever it is make time to do it in your day.  If your doing something you love it will bring you joy, which is true happiness.

4. Think positive! Put those negative thoughts in the dumpster! If you catch yourself thinking negatively quickly correct your mind and you can even think or say out loud “cancel, cancel!” to cancel your negative thoughts or spoken words.  Then simply think positive and when you are thinking positive, you will start to see your whole world turn positive.

5. Love yourself.  This is by far the most important one! If you don’t love yourself, then it will be almost impossible for anyone to love you and you to love anyone.  Self-love is the most important value to have in life.  If you are having trouble with this simply start right now by thinking “I love myself!” Then when you look in the mirror next say “hello beautiful, I love you.” It may seem funny or weird at first but soon you will love to do it and find yourself falling in love with yourself and you will see your world improving and you will be so happy!

6. Meditate. Start today, don’t delay! Meditation has been proven to find happiness, uplift your spirit, and improve your health.

How to talk to your Loved one in Heaven…and hear them

Hello angel friends!

I know a lot of you have a loved one in heaven, and as you know my beautiful mom is in Heaven.

The pain of losing someone close to you is hard to deal with, and the hole in your heart seems to grow more than close and heal.  My mom has been in Heaven for almost 9 months now.  We had a bond here on earth that was unbreakable.  She was my best friend and I miss her so much.  She was very sick, and she went slowly so on a positive note we were able to talk about heaven and Jesus and God and angels.  We also made a pact.  I would talk to her every day and she would tell me all about Heaven, and how she got there and what it looked like.  I talk to her every day, and I know she is with me when I talk to her, and I know she can hear me.  In fact, I know she is here with me as I write this.

As I talk with her every day I know she hears me, and sometimes I hear her back.  Its a voice inside of me that I know is her talking, or sometimes I will receive a sign from her, or she will be in my dream. I ask to see her in my dreams almost every day and once in a while I get lucky and see her in them.  Loved ones really do come visit us in our dreams and give us messages, and love.

So how do you talk with and hear your loved one in Heaven? Its simple.

  • Talk to them as if they are right next to you.
  • Ask them to be in your dreams. And if they don’t come at first, ask them until you see them, every day if you have to.
  • God and your angels can give them messages.  If you are scared to talk to them, ask God and/or your angels to deliver a message to them, and they will get it!
  • Have faith that this is real.  Heaven is real, and talking with your loved one is real.
  • Be open to hearing them.  The more you practice, the better you become.
  • Watch for signs from them.  They might leave you pennies or feathers, but something will pop up and you will know it is from them.
  • Keep bugging them until you receive a sign.

I hope these help.  I know any little sign I receive is the greatest thing in the world.  May God bless you and heal you. Keeping you all in my prayers and sending you love. God bless you friends.



Do you believe in past lives?

Hi Friends!

I know a lot of you wonder if you have lived a life before this one? Let me start with a story of about 4 years ago when I woke up in Egypt…

My sister Amy and I traveled to Cairo.  It was a place that had always fascinated us, i’m sure it does many of you also.  It was the morning we were going to see the pyramids and we were so excited.  As I was waking up that morning I was very relaxed and sleepy, laying down still and I heard a voice say in my ear “the last time you were here was one-thousand years ago.” I immediately told my sister.  I had always believed in reincarnation, but hearing this voice so clearly tell me that I had been here before made it clear to me that what I had believed was real.

I believe we grow, learn and evolve in our lifetimes.  I believe that if we don’t get it “right” that God gives us another chance.  Our next life or our past life may be or have been a different circumstance, different family, different race, different religion, and different lifestyle, etc.  I have been told before that I volunteered to come into this life.  As life goes on and I grow and evolve I do believe that.   I have always felt like an “old soul.”

Whether you believe that reincarnation is real or not or feel  you have lived many lives, I would love to hear if you have had an experience or what your thoughts are in the comments below.

Love and blessings,


How to say a prayer of protection before you meditate

Hi friends!

I have been meditating for a decade now and lately I have been hearing a lot of people interested in meditating.  Meditation is life changing and can literally change your brain, and your day.  The difference is day and night between those that meditate and those that don’t.  Once you start you will see the difference, and for those of you who do meditate, you absolutely know what I am talking about.

From the people who wish to begin to meditate one question I get from them is “what do I say before I start?” Or, “do I have to say a prayer of protection?” The answer is yes!  Always say a prayer before you start meditating.  Say a prayer asking God to protect you and ask only for the highest good, also this is the time to ask your guardian angels in, any archangels you wish to invite such as archangel Micheal.  I always ask my mom to be with me, Jesus, along with my guardian angels and archangels. And I always visualize a bright white light bubble surrounding me.

Here is an example of a prayer of invocation and protection to say before you meditate:

“Dear God,

Thank you for being here with me at this time, and surrounding me with your white healing light, love and protection.  Thank you angels for being here with me and surrounding me with your love, healing and protection.  Thank you Jesus for being here with me at this time.  Thank you mom for stepping through the veil and being here with me at this time.  I keep an open mind, an open heart, and an open soul to receive your love, guidance and healing. Amen.”

To learn how to meditate please watch this video:

You can ask for as much protection as you want if you feel like that is not enough.  God will always answer your prayers, and send you extra angels for protection if you ask.  I hope this will help you as you continue meditating or begin your journey.

May God always bless you, guide you and protect you.



Inspiration with Jinelle Anlea: Finding happiness this Thanksgiving (after the loss of a loved one).


Thanksgiving is a holiday to be grateful, filled with love, warmth, and lots of delicious food!  Yes it is fun to gather around with family and friends, but for those who have lost a loved one, it can be a difficult time.   As many of you know our beautiful mom went to heaven on September 1st, so this will be our first holiday without her.  We miss her, but absolutely know that she is here with us, and for those that have lost a loved one, please know that they will be with you this Thanksgiving.   It is in the small moments where we find love and happiness, a smile or happy memory.  We must choose to be happy, to go on, and know that our loved ones are so happy in heaven! But also, know that it is ok to feel sadness, and it is ok to miss them.  I will always miss my beautiful mom.  Enjoy this special holiday.  Please listen to my free podcast above, I hope it brings you peace this Thanksgiving. I talk about my life, my mom, and having Thanksgiving without her, and give you some tips that will help you get through.  May God bless you and your loved ones.  Happy Thanksgiving.



If Tomorrow was your last day…

In the story of Aladdin, he was granted 3 wishes.  If you could be granted 3 wishes in your life, what would they be?

These wishes are what we really want in life, and we don’t need a magic lamp or a genie to grant these wishes.  God is our genie, and he can grant our 3 wishes, and help give us what we really want in life.

God will be there for us, helping us go in the direction of our dreams, but we too must do the work that brings us in the direction of what we most want in life.

Here are 3 words of advice to help:

  1. Look in the direction of where you want to be.
  2. Speak in the direction of where you want to be.
  3. Never look back to where you came from.

Life is short so make the most of it. If tomorrow was your last day on this earth, what would you regret most?  Do what you love, and love everything you do.

May God bless the road in front of you and give you the courage, strength, tools and connections in this world to get you to where you dream to be.  Remember you already have everything inside of you to accomplish your greatest dreams.

How to feel awesome for the Forth of July

A lot of articles in the magazines are telling you how to look great for the forth and how to get that perfect “bikini body”. 
I am here to tell you how beautiful and perfect you are and to help you feel amazing, just in time for the forth of July! 
Feeling great is all about a state of mind, preparing yourself mentally, and putting nothing but good things into your mind. 
Here are some of my favorite tips just in time for the holiday weekend:
1. Focus only on what is good in your life. No matter what your circumstances are in life you don’t have to look at the negative. Choose to see the good in all situations. 
2.  Meditate every day for at least 5 minutes. Take a zen break and just sit in a quiet, comfortable room and relax. Take deep breaths, ask God and your angels to be with you. Know that you are surrounded by love, and relax.  
If you could use a boost of self-esteem and confidence, and to feel more loved I highly suggest you purchase my Love Meditation, You are Loved.  It is selling fast, and is on sale for a limited time! Click the link here to learn more:
3.  Pray to have all negative blocks, people, places, things, situations be removed so that your weekend is full of positive people, fun times and  safe situations. 
Wishing you all a fun and safe holiday weekend! God bless. 

How to have your prayers answered

I have heard people say “my prayers don’t work, will you pray for me?”  I will never turn down a prayer request. In fact,  I LOVE to pray for people, but know that your prayers are heard in heaven just as much as the popes and priests are!

I know there are many many people in this world who love to pray, and who pray all day long.  There are also some people who never pray because 1) It takes to much time. 2) They don’t know how. 3)They think their prayers aren’t heard, and don’t work.  

I am here to tell you that God hears all prayers, and in fact the very second you start praying, he is already sending you angels to find a solution for your prayer, or send love or healing.  Whatever you ask for, God and the angels start working immediately.  

When I pray, I KNOW God is answering my prayers, no matter how big or how small my prayer request is.  The secret to having your prayers answered is KNOWING that God will answer them.  I expect my prayers to be answered, and he knows that.  

I know God and my angels are right by my side, helping me always.  We are a team, and they are your team too.  Next time you go to pray, or ask God a question, know that he is right by your side listening to you, and answering your prayers.  No prayer goes unanswered.  

To watch a video on prayer, and to hear a great story about how one of my prayers was answered IMMEDIATELY click this link: 

I hope this helps you understand that God hears every prayer.  Please know how deeply loved you are by God and your angels.    

God bless.




3 Steps that will make your life easier

I had a dream last night that I was taking a college class that was called Human Behaviors. In that class we would pray for everyone that needed prayer.  The room was packed full of people on two levels! Its was a great dream.  Life can be hard sometimes but there are ways to make it easier, like in my dream we would pray.  You can choose to live a better life and here are 3 easy steps to help.

Meditation makes life flow better, and easier. When I meditate I ask God to put up a bubble of white light and protection.  During the day after I have meditated I feel like God is closer, I can feel the presence of my angels, and can better receive their guidance to help make better decisions. I become conscious of my emotions, which makes them easier to control. You will have a light shining from within you and a sparkle in you eye that people will look at you with amazement and wonder.  Take time today to meditate and see how it changes your life.  It only takes 5-15 minutes if that is all you have.  If you are a beginner and need help getting started, you can watch my you tube video here

Next we must always remember that life is unfolding the way it was meant to be.  Everything in life is happening exactly as it is supposed to, and if you don’t like the way it is, then do the next step.

Last but not least PRAY! Prayer works, just like in my dream.  In my dream I knew I could help so many people by praying for them.  I have many stories where prayer works, you can find some on my YouTube channel: Jinelle Anlea.  My beautiful mom always gives the best advice.  She once told me “All of your problems can go away if you would just pray about them.”  She taught me to always pray about every situation, and to know that God will take care of it.  If you ask for help you will receive it.  No matter how big or small the problem always remember to pray.

I hope these will help you.  Remember to always give your worries to God, and know that he will always take care of you! God bless.




What is Heaven?

The other day my sister was telling me a story when she told me her husband asked her over coffee “What is Heaven?”  The second she told me that I knew that he wasn’t the only one curious of knowing the answer to that question.  Aren’t we all curious of that answer, because someday we will all leave our bodies and go to heaven, therefore who isn’t curious of what happens when we die?  

After being hit by a train, and being in Heaven for several minutes I can help answer that.  

To me Heaven of course is where we go when we no longer need our earthly bodies, when they no longer function, or when our time is up because we have served and completed our God given purpose of why we came into this life.  God calls us, because when it is our time, we must go back home.

When we go to Heaven we feel no pain, no anger, have no resentment or regrets.  There is no sickness, we are completely healed, healthy, and whole. 

The feeling is complete peace, complete love, complete euphoria.  There is absolutely nothing but love.  

We wait for Heaven in our hearts, it is a place we all dream of, wonder, get excited, and have so many questions about.  Someday we will all find out the beauty of our true home.  When we get there this life will be like a blink of an eye.   

There are many different stories of Heaven published, all of which are inspiring and give us hope of what is to come.  If you have not read my story you can click the link here to watch my story on CMT’s Angels Among Us:  

God Bless you my friend, and may one day we will meet in Heaven.
