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!

Life is a Verb

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines life as a noun. It goes on to say it is “a:the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body  b: a principle or force that is considered to underlie the distinctive quality of animate beings.” If there is a “quality” that distinguishes us from being “dead” that quality lies in choosing to live life as a verb.

The meaning of life is only truly defined by what is important to each of us as individuals. There is not one ‘singular’ definition. Life is what we breathe into it. It can be dormant and bland or full of sparkle and excitement. It can be merely existing and responding or full of vitality and passion. We can let life pass us by unconscious to the possibilities that present themselves each day or we can live with conscious awareness knowing that there is growth, change and endless possibilities. Life is what you want it to be and you can live it as a noun or a VERB.

Breathe life into your life!

Engaging in life is what breaths life into it. Bring your passion and purpose to the forefront and create from that vibration. Seeing what you are passionate about come to life by creating it moves you beyond your fears and fills your heart with new purpose. Think about those things you’ve created in the past which left you feeling fulfilled. If you created something amazing in the past, trust in your ability to do it again. You know in your heart what breathes life into your life. Follow your heart and it will lead you to places unimaginable because what you decide to bring into being today opens doors to other opportunities.

BEing is not passive!

Engaging in life means engaging with yourself first. The state of being-ness is not merely sitting in a chair void of life and thought. In fact it’s just the opposite. It is a time of discovery, consciousness and healing. It is a time for facing your perceived fears, moving past them and feeling what YOU are feeling. It is a time to bring your spirit to life and listen to your inner self. It is a time for more of who you are as divine being to come in allowing body and spirit to live and work together. Can you envision what could be created when your body and spirit are in harmony? Imagine if you will what it would be like if you looked inside yourself to find answers as much as you look for them outside. All your answers lie within you and all it takes are a few quiet moments to listen.

Breathe new life into your life! Decide now, in this very moment to live life as a verb. Engage in life by turning your attention within and listening to your inner guidance. Shed the layers of responsiblity heaped on you by others which you have carried with you for years. Move past your fears and connect with your vitality and purpose. Live with the excitement and joy brought forth by breathing life into your life! Life is a verb…engage!~Shine Your Light Debbie
