Thanksgiving and Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving“Gratitude  is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse  to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.”~Henry  Van Dyke

Giving thanks is not the same as having gratitude and appreciation. Having gratitude and appreciation is your inner embracing, owning and “having” those things which have manifested in your life.

Gratitude is an inner feeling. The acknowledgement for those things you already have. Having gratitude and appreciation is an inner expression of peace and contentment. In every sense gratitude and appreciation are vibrational messages felt deep in your soul that have the ability to shift your perception from negative to positive.

Giving thanks differs in that by giving thanks you are expressing in words or deeds the inner feeling. By giving thanks in any form whether it be a simple, heartfelt, verbal “thank you”, shouting it from the rooftops, writing a note, donating your time or money to help those less fortunate or saying prayer you are showing and giving gratitude and appreciation.

Do you EXPRESS your gratitude and appreciation to your loved ones?

Often we remain silent and do not express  our inner feelings to those for whom we have the deepest gratitude and appreciation. We might hold them dear on our hearts but do not express it as often as we should. Why do we hold back? Are you thanking those who mean the most?

Thanksgiving is wonderful time to visit your inner world to find gratitude and appreciation for all that you are, all that you have, and for those who helped you with valuable lessons (and even challenges) along the way. Once you connect with your inner gratitude it is time to express what is in your heart.

Say thank you to those who may not know how grateful you are. Don’t assume they know. Give thanks for your abundance by giving back. The greatest expression of living in abundance is giving. Many are struggling right now and your thanks-giving might be the very thing they need to find hope and a moment of peaceful joy.

Silent giving (on an energetic level) says thank you but your soul will burst with contentment when you express it in physical form.  Follow the “impulse” to express your heartfelt thanks. Allow what is inside to be seen and heard by word or deed. Why not make it a daily practice? Start now and by the end of the year you will create a beautiful habit of thanking those you are grateful to!

I would be remiss if I did not say thank you to all of YOU. To my family, friends and readers, my gratitude and appreciation is endless. I thank you for filling my heart with love. Your kind notes, love and support lives with me daily. Thank you for reading and sharing and caring. We are creating a healing vibration that cascades out and touches others. Thank you with all my heart! Happy Thanksgiving! Bountiful blessings to you and yours!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Sending and Receiving Love and Gratitude!

Toradiate loveday’s Healing Message: We are rich beyond measure when we send and receive love sprinkled with gratitude for both the sending and receiving.

“Gratitude and love are always multiplied when you give freely. It is an infinite source of contentment and prosperous energy.”~Jim Fargiano

When was the last time you took a moment to send and receive gratitude and love? Notice I asked about sending AND receiving. Most of the time I think we are so focused on sending it out we forget that energy is not one-sided.

Each of us deserves to receive as much as we give and perhaps we can give this gift to ourselves instead of waiting for others to give it to us. Our minds can create the image of a gratitude flow which is indeed an infinite source of contentment!

Why not take a moment to give it a try now? Gently close your eyes and picture someone you love. Imagine sending them love and gratitude. Notice how it makes you feel to send it. Now imagine receiving love and gratitude from that person. Notice an effortless flow of energy between you. Notice how it makes you feel.

If you really want to grow a space and cultivate more gratitude and love in your life, do this daily not only with those you love but use your mind to do this with those you pass on the street. The grocery clerk. Your waiter at the restaurant.

Gratitude Attitude“The more grateful we are, the more we practice this in our everyday lives, the more connected we become to the universe around us.”~Stephen Richards

The more you give AND receive the beautiful vibrations of gratitude and love the more they multiply.

RADIATE LOVE AND GRATITUDE…. Your communication with yourself and others will shift. You will experience joy and love as you gaze at the world.

Don’t believe me? Try it yourself! I’d love to hear your experience in the comments!~Shine Your Light Debbie
