"Happy face stickers" are what happens when you "tolerate" things. You "tolerate" things because you believe they SHOULDN'T bother you. You feel "guilty" or "silly" or some such nonsense for "letting" something "bother" you. It's often what you would call "little things" but because you have the negative emotion aimed at yourself, the manifestation is often body or health-related. You're sort of keeping it inside (because you think it's silly or "bad" or whatever) and in your body. And you do the same thing when you try to "keep up appearances".
Don't feel guilty or silly about not "liking" something. If you don't prefer it, then you don't prefer it. You don't have to tell everyone or apologize or explain, you just have to look at what you're doing. If you're trying to "like" it, stop it. If you're trying to "hide" the fact that you don't like it, stop it. If it bothers you, then it is important and if it is important, then it is affecting your experience so don't "ignore" it just because you think it is "small" or "no big deal" or "silly" to be bothered by it. Deal with it. Clean it up.
"Tolerance" is not the productive stance that society claims. It is aimed at the self. It is a stifling and hiding of emotion, an annoyance with the self and it can easily fall to "guilt" and self-degradation, criticism or even condemnation. The unchecked manifestations of tolerance are profound and personal. It's the "happy" person's heart attack or the "loving" person's cancer. It looks like LOA gone mad but LOA never gets it wrong. Which is not to say that you can judge the experience of another, regarding such things. You cannot. The experience of others is, as always, off limits and "none of your business". So don't go about dissecting the experience of others. You can't. You have no idea where they are.
You can create a signal to alert you to "tolerance". It need not be a "tooth falling out" or a kidney stone but it should be something specific like stubbing your toe or something. Create "that" signal for "that" circumstance only. Simply make the agreement, with yourself, that "this" equals "tolerance". "Concern" or "self-criticism" about not liking something. You may "stub your toe" a lot, in the beginning, but once you find your balance and begin to recognize your "tolerance", it will become more rare. (I don't recommend "papercuts". Ouch!)
This is how "dowsing" works (when it works). A dowser decides what he or she is looking for, decides the signals that will manifest and decides what each signal means. He or she makes an agreement with the apparatus of their choice and defines the various signals it will express under specific circumstances and conditions. It is LOA in action. If they believe it - in that moment - and they focus with the expectation of it, then it is. It isn't supernatural or magic. It is simply LOA.
