Join the Gratitude Movement!

gratitude“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”~Melody Beattie

In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday in the USA it is time to explore and tune into the energy of gratitude and giving thanks. Having gratitude for what you have and all that you are is a powerful energy that can change your life.

When was the last time you took a moment to look around you and appreciate, I mean REALLY appreciate all that you have? When was the last time you told a friend how much they mean to you? For that matter when was the last time you sat quietly to appreciate where you are and give thanks for all you have? When was the last time you enveloped yourself in the vibration of gratitude and allowed it to flow? Been a while? If so, it’s time to CULTIVATE your GRATITUDE!

Gratitude and giving thanks allows you to have more in your life because you are appreciating what you have now. An attitude of gratitude is being aware of the blessings you are receiving at any given moment. It brings your attention into the present which is where all creating takes place.  It sends a message into the universe that you are grateful for what you have NOW.

Think of it this way, if you brought a gift to someone and they didn’t say thank you then you brought another and they tossed it aside with no acknowledgement, do you think you would continue to give them gifts? You are receiving miracles and gifts every day. Having gratitude for these gifts sends a vibration into the universe.

As an energy vibration gratitude can heal a broken heart, clear communication & stuck energy, bring awareness to the abundance you already have in your life and is naturally steeped in forgiveness.

Gratitude and giving thanks is not mutually exclusive to the positive things in your life. It also means finding gratitude and appreciation for challenges and those who may have hurt or invalidated you. Gratitude has an element of forgiveness because you are accepting and not resisting.

It may not be easy to find gratitude for, let’s just say, someone who broke your heart but give thanks and be grateful for the beautiful moments they brought you. You wouldn’t have had the experience if they hadn’t come into your life! At some level you learned and grew and discovered how strong and capable you really are.

How do you begin changing and shifting your attitude to gratitude? Very simply, begin by setting your intent. A wonderful way to confirm the experience is to begin writing down the things you are grateful for. Include gratitude for the lessons you have learned and for those who brought you those lessons. Include gratitude for all that you are and the abundance that already surrounds you! Notice how your mood changes the more you write!

To cultivate your gratitude, sit quietly and envelope yourself in a vibration of gratitude and appreciation. Also it’s helpful to keep a gratitude journal for (at least) 30 days. Each day write at least 5 things you are grateful for. Be sure to include those things or people  you are having a challenge with. There is always something to appreciate and be grateful for when you look for it!

Creating change is a process and initially change is invisible because it happens on a vibrational level.  That said, these changes ARE affecting your life. At first you will notice subtle changes, then as you continue the process, the changes you see and feel are more profound! You hold in your hands the power to cultivate the ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE! Take time each day to appreciate your loved ones, your body and spirit, ALL you are and ALL you have!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I want to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation to each one of you.  You touch my life with your light and inspire me to continue doing my work in this world. 🙂 BOUNTIFUL BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOURS!~Shine Your Light Debbie

30 DAYS OF GRATITUDE; Unlock the Door to Abundance and the FULLNESS of LIFE!

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we  have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order,  confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a  stranger into a friend.”~Melody Beattie

Gratitude is a powerful energy. Having gratitude and appreciating all that you have and all that you are is the first step toward creating space for more happiness, joy and increased abundance. Gratitude shifts your awareness from negative to positive. Gratitude gives you hope. Putting it out there by writing a few things each day will change your life in ways you can’t imagine!

Gratitude for what you already have helps bring your energy into present time and unlocks the potential for bringing in MORE! A daily practice or “gratitude journal” is a powerful tool for change. You may already have “lists” of what you’re grateful for but when you begin each day by stating and writing down what you are grateful for you put a chain of energy events in motion. Think of it this way; Gratitude is you seeing the glass 1/2 full instead of 1/2 empty.

Are you validating or invalidating what you already have?

“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter  everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how  we experience life and the world.”~John Milton

Having gratitude for what you already have validates that you can (and are) having what you have. How can you possibly make space for more if you are not grateful for that which you already have? In fact if you are not grateful for what you already have you are invalidating the gifts of abundance which already exist in your life. Having what you already have validates and honors you as a creator. Invalidating or thinking “it’s not enough” or it’s “not good enough” keeps you in a state of lack. The truth of the matter is that if you aren’t grateful for what you already have it will never be enough or good enough!

Gratitude is an inside job!

“Gratitude helps you to grow and expand; gratitude brings joy  and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.”~Eileen Caddy

Growing and expanding is always done from the inside out. Gratitude is about seeing the positive and the more grateful you are the more positives you will see. The more positive you see, the more positive, happy and empowered you feel! The more empowered, happy and positive you feel the more you give and share. The more you give and share the more blessed and abundant you feel which leads to even more abundance and gratitude. This chain of events begins the moment you put the energy of gratitude into play. Gratitude not only has a direct effect on your life but the lives of those around you. In essence it turns what “you have into enough” and turns “enough” into more!
