Gratitude and its Gifts

As you approach the holiday season of 2022, sincerely celebrate the 1st one: Thanksgiving. You have come through two very challenging years and are now at the harvest – being resilient and fruitful. Give thanks!

Gratitude is when you honor those people, experiences, or other emotions that are precious to you.  It is the two-way exchange of appreciation between your thanks and the positive response that you feel in return. Gratitude is one of the most powerful emotions you can experience.  Allow it to fill your mind body spirit.

Here are 3 ways you can invite more gratitude into your life:

  1. Connect with nature. Appreciate the sunlight, smell the flowers, admire the beauty in a sunset. Nature nurtures us and provides us with health and rejuvenation. It is very important to recognize the fragility of the environment and take care of it as she takes care of us.

You can do this with “Embracing Earth” a 20-minute audio meditation with music.  You will revitalize yourself and our planet while intimately feeling your own connection with nature.

2. Keep a gratitude journal. Write 5 things each day that you’re grateful for. This can be about people, experiences, or other emotions. You can make a simple list or write a lot about each item.  Do whatever feels good to you.

Get a journal which resonates for you in its beauty and elegance. Use a special pen.  Enjoy the process of writing.

3. Reach out to someone in your life. Call on the phone, send a text or even a letter! You will feel happy about the relationship and so will they.

We humans need each other, especially in our high tech/low touch culture. It is the connection that you feel to whom is truly important in your life. To feel this bond is to be grateful for your family and friends in your circle of life.

For you to take fuller advantage of gratitude and its gifts, go to my Phoenix Rising Gift Shop. Scroll down and choose some special offerings that will show your friends how much you are grateful for them during these holidays!  You can easily send them the audio “Embracing Earth”, a book or even give them a psychic healing Reiki session.

Actually, gratitude is more than just an attitude or mood.  It is positive energy that goes into our mind-body continuum that leads to increased physical and psychological wellbeing. Gratitude brings you greater health and balance.

True gratitude comes from a feeling of joy, safety and being comfortable in your life. With this heart of thankfulness, you will be grateful in any situation. Expressing gratitude even allows for more blessings to arrive.

In the silence and stillness of the now, your gratitude can move you into grace and the supportive flow of the universe which comes to you in a myriad of gifts.
