Relationship with Spirit connects us with ALL THAT IS . This expansive relationship takes us beyond the constricted, fear based story that the ego creates. Gratitude for what we have in a given moment connects us with Creator, a great partnership in life to empower!
The first time I understood how effective this practice is was when reading my first book on metaphysics, YOU CAN HEAL YOURSELF by Louise Hay. Louise spoke to the importance of appreciation and gratitude and actually suggested one be grateful for their refrigerator. REFRIGERATOR??!! Okay, now that's just a bit much...and then I thought, what would my life be like without it? I love cooking, the ease of opening the door and finding fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh meats, even the pleasure of frozen ice cream on a hot summer day, and I got it. I love the convenience. I thought of all the people who do not have such luxury. I began looking around my modest kitchen. Every direction I turned to I found more and more "luxury" bringing ease and grace to my life, and that was just in my kitchen.
Years later, I still remember the power of the shift in my perception and the grace and ease it brought me.
As the challenges continue this coming year and yes we are all being called to learn much and quickly, may we never forget to acknowledge all the blessings and grace that we can count on in any given moment.
May we remember to be grateful for family and friends for what would we be without them.
May we wisely find an endless number of blessings and feel the abundance we all have when we choose to stand fully in the NOW.
May your experience of Spirit be Conscious, so that your Heart will be full in every moment this coming year.
