This time of year brings up the topic of gratitude. Gratitude is the attitude. It is more than the attitude, but it is a great place to start. It is more like a state of being--Gratitude. How often do you go through the motions of saying you are grateful for things but don't really feel it?
Or maybe you have a hard time feeling gratitude with what is going on in different areas of the country or even in your community. I do understand it can be quite upsetting and disturbing. You may be thinking to yourself that the world has gone mad, someone has to do something about it and things need to change! Yes. They do. Which is precisely what is going on. Change. The #1 thing you can do to help this change that is occurring globally, is to act locally. To act so local that it is downright intimate. Yes. The change that you can help with is to go within and change. Change whatever isn't aligning you with your Soul and the Divine Love that you are. That we all are. We can say all that we want that something needs to change and someone needs to do something about it, but that is looking externally for answers isn't it?
Of course the very first step we can do is take some deep breaths. Fill up your belly first before you fill up your lungs. And step into gratitude. Be grateful that you can take those deep breaths. Think of five things you are and can be grateful for. How does that feel after you do that? Are you questioning even doing that? Are you thinking it is passive to do that? It's not passive at all! We are aligning with ourselves and what IS in the very moment. The more we can be in alignment with the gratitude, with the vibration of our Soul, the more we help the collective. The more we will have the answers of whether we are to reach out and help in certain ways. That we can be the ones "doing" something about it. Because we already are by connecting to the Divine by connecting and aligning with our Soul .
Does the gratitude not feel sincere? Then, just breathe. Breathe with whatever you are feeling. We can sometimes start to beat ourselves up for not being able to feel grateful. It's ok if you can't. Then just focus on the deep breaths. You will eventually come to a place where you can feel the gratitude. Don't feel like you have to rush it or skip steps by not feeling what you are feeling. Be grateful to the one that is having trouble feeling the gratitude!
A wonderful reminder is, that we don't have to wait for Thanksgiving and the holidays to focus on being grateful and sharing the gratitude. This is an every day focus! Every day, before I get out of bed in the morning, I focus on things(a lot of the time 5) I am grateful for. I also focus on what my intention is for the day. Sometimes it's how I can share more love with others. Sometimes it is how can I show a stranger more kindness. It's amazing how my days are filled with joy, love and gratitude. Every day! Even if I have and "off" day. They are still filled with the joy, love and gratitude. I will finish my day as I slip into bed with gratitude's too. It makes for pleasant dreams. :-)
Try it. Whatever level you can. If you are feeling the gratefulness, Do it! If you can only focus on the deep breaths, Do it! I would love to hear how it changes your immediate world. And we will watch how it will change the bigger picture. I AM grateful for every single one of you. I love you.
Until next time....
Holy Schkamole!!!!! If you are an Energetically Sensitive Being (ESB), Empath, Lightworker, or all of them, you are most likely reading this....maybe for comfort....maybe for piece of mind....maybe for all of the above! Without further ado, I am going to dive right into this topic!
The past two days have been extremely intense for me. How about you? I feel it is a combination of energies that are going on right now. First of all, the build up and the day of the election was one crazy wave. The "symptoms," if you will, started some time mid - day on Tuesday, and have been wave after wave of intensity coming through since then. What I have been feeling is waves of STRONG ass fear. I mean punch you in the gut, bury in your solar plexus fear! Waves of emotions, such as being overwhelmed, despair, heaviness and confusion. (Thank you to my dear friend who helped me put words to the energies) I have had a very difficult time grounding because all I have wanted to do is dissociate,...Leave my body.....not want to be here on the planet right now.
Also, my words have been that it has felt like a roller coaster ride, except everytime you go down the hill it feels like the bottom keeps falling out. I feel it is a culmination of what the collective is feeling and something has shifted in the Universe. It's not just isolated to our planet. I got the very clear message yesterday that it wasn't anything about what I was "trying" to figure out. It had nothing to do with my personal life events. When I shared that with another friend this morning, they asked, "Is it a good shift?" I don't look at anything as good or bad. I look at everything as the Universal energy moving forward. It is forever moving forward, shifting and changing. It just feels like we have shifted in a different direction. Back to the roller coaster scenario. I liken it to the Mouse, when all of a sudden you feel like you are whipped in a different direction. This too shall pass.
I want to share with you what has helped me stay sane. First of all, recognizing that it is ok to reach out to others in your tribe (or me) to see if they are feeling the shift. Don't be afraid to ask for help, especially energetically, from others if they can support you. If you can support them, great! If not, it is ok! Also, and this is a BIG one, do your best NOT to ATTACH ANYTHING in your life to the energies. It will bring up whatever isn't in harmony with your true essence. Yes....the above mentioned energies(and emotions) will bring up your fears. Most likely fears that you didn't know that you even had!
Take MANY deep breaths. Maybe repeat to yourself, "With my breath, the energies are flowing through me. I am here anchoring the new consciousness and supporting the releasing of the ancient energies on the planet at this time for the well-being of all." We can create huge amounts of suffering within ourselves if we get on the crazy train and give those fears the voice that is unnecessary. And by all means, honor and nurture yourself. You are absolutely doing amazing! At times like this, it is of the utmost importance that we nurture, care and love ourselves, versus beating ourselves up and succumbing to the rampage that could occur if we choose not to honor ourselves.
As with everything, the answer is and always will be love. Love what is and Love everything that comes up and through for you. You are absolutely amazing and I am in awe of you. Please reach out for support if you need it....I have. I love you.
Until next time....
This is where I put the things that the Divine wants me to share at this time. :-)
