If we look at gratitude itself, we find that it always arises as we become conscious of our relationship to someone or something. When we’re grateful, we recognize the intrinsic, beneficial value of the object (whether a person, being, thing, or condition); but even more fundamentally, we perceive an underlying connection between it and ourselves.
A feeling of belonging suffuses our gratitude. This feeling runs much deeper than a mere commerce of values, where the coin of exchange is only personal satisfaction.
Gratefulness connects us to the heart, for it is here that all relationships in longing, love, sympathy, and compassion resolve in a point of unity. ….
Gratitude is a very unique energy and when we are great-full we pull in powerful vortexes of vaccuum like energy (I see it therfor I am not sure how else to explain it lol)…….That “Vaccuum like” energy around you pulls in more and more and more to be great-full for!
We still maintain the distinctions between ‘you’ and ‘me’, ‘I’ and ‘world’, but not the walls of separateness that keep us isolated and disconnected.
Our disharmonies, brought back to the magnetic pole of the heart, realign with life’s rich wholeness, which is what authentic healing is all about.
Here then, we discover gratitude’s healing power, seeing opportunity for growth in the midst of troubles, embracing the wisdom of beginnings and endings, and tolerating limitations while striving for better ways.
In these and a thousand other ways we see the unity of life articulating its sanctity in myriad dynamics of relationship. …..
We begin to breathe with the universe… instead of Against it or beneath it… we align WITH IT!!!
Please keep in mind the power of Gratitude!
I know we all seem to think about being “Thankful” during the Holiday season, especially during November.
BUT…Gratitude and Truly feeling Thankful for our day to day blessings packs a whole lot of power into our lives (more then most realize)...
For when we not only speak of the Blessings in our lives but we truly envision that which we are great-full for (feel it)…. and our hearts are filled with Love and Gratitude for all we have and all we are, and all we have been through…it brings a whole lot more of what we Love to our lives!
Even more powerful and important is…truly feeling gratitude for the things that have happened in our lives that weren’t so happy…that weren’t so fun…. that weren’t so easy…. that may have even brought us to our knees (in more ways then one)….
For those are the things that we forget to see as blessings……
We sometimes do not recognize that they can be the biggest blessings of all…
because they force us to change and grow and learn and heal……
because they are meant to show us what is in the way of our complete inner peace….
and when we are thankful and great-full for our lessons, even when they weren’t easy…..
We are truly aligning with God’s Will…… and our own!
When you can soften your heart and change your perspective just a tad….to see that you are not being punished or judged by the Universe…but in fact BLESSED… it pulls in an ABUNDANCE of things to be GREAT-FULL for!
I know you all have heard me speak of the vibration scale (it is one of my favorite tools)…
Gratitude doesn’t even fit on the vibration scale because the vibration of the emotion (feeling) of Gratitude is too high….
Every single one of us has blessings in our lives, every single one of us have things to be great-full for, and every single one of us has the power to pull more of that into our lives.
So instead of saying “I am unlucky” or “I have nothing”…
instead say “I am very lucky and blessings flow freely to me.. I am thankful for that!”
“I have many blessings in my life, and every day more blessings come to me easily!”
BE thankful you guys….. for there is always someone out there that has less than you!
BE great-full you guys… because you are unique and only you can be you!
God has uniquely created your blueprint and only you can fulfill your life’s purpose!
Even if you do not have any (or many) family members to share birthdays, holidays and celebrations with, or you are alone… you are still BLESSED beyond measure!!!
Because you are alive, you woke up…. you have another chance to get it right today!
Its totally up to you….
When we are living in the energy of GRATITUDE…
and we truly feel it in our hearts (and our souls)….
we easily attract more to be thankful for into our lives!!
The Struggle in life ends when the Gratitude begins – Unknown
Sending you love and blessings and much healing during this time of transition and growth on the planet…
God Bless you!
