I am so grateful to be a featured writer on beautiful Zeenat’s inspiring blog; Positive Provocations, please visit my first of four posts there, “Celebrate Everything with Gratitude!“. This month she asked me to write about Celebration! Well, I certainly have a LOT to celebrate lately. Firstly, I am writing for a wonderful blog such as Zeenats! I have my book, “A Short Path to Change: 30 Ways to Transform Your Life” getting good reviews as I eagerly await it being published on January 8, 2016! I am madly in love with a man I cannot say enough wonderful things about and am enjoying all that brings as it continues to get better and better! I have smart and wonderful children as well as many friends and a support system around me. I am a long way from where doctors predicted I would be by now, which was in a wheelchair in extreme daily pain and getting worse. I am living the life of my dreams and a very important part of what has gotten me here is the gratitude and celebration I allow myself! Please visit my post at Zeenat’s lovely space and leave a comment for me. I would love to hear how you celebrate yourself! Thank you Zeenat for this opportunity!
Gratitude is one of the most powerful tools I know for shifting energy around any situation or relationship. So many times we are focused on what we don’t want, don’t like or are worried about what will be. We judge situations and deem them “bad” and also are our own toughest critics. We become wrapped up in our own minds and patterns of thought and sometimes days, weeks or even longer periods of time can pass without us taking that time to truly FEEL gratitude in us for all the things that ARE working in our lives.
My friend Zeenat, from Positive Provocations asked me to write a post (along with other blogging friends) that will be posted on her blog on her birthday, Saturday, September 28, 2013. Please visit to bask in Zeenat’s amazing healing and loving energy and her beautiful outlook on life and to send her birthday wishes! I am also including a very special offer and gift for her birthday via that post. Her request inspired me not only to write this longer post about gratitude with exercises but also to show my gratitude to my subscribers. If you book a session in the next 72 hours – before Wednesday 11PM Eastern Standard Time.. I will give you a 1/2 price rate on ANY service (and Yes, that WILL include multiple services). Just a little THANK YOU for your love and support over the years. You can visit my services page and my Akashic page for more information and look at my testimonials to learn about other’s experiences in working with me.
Having been so ill for over 6 years I remember clearly how easy it is to be caught up in all the things I couldn’t “do, be or have in my life” instead of focusing on what I DID have. I still maintain that gratitude was one of the most instrumental tools allowing me to heal myself in three short weeks. So how CAN we show gratitude and what are the easiest ways to bring this daily practice into your life? There are several ways I have found VERY effective to bring the MAGICAL energy of gratitude into your life:
1) Make a list – of the first 10 things that come to mind that you are grateful for. (There are ALWAYS things to be grateful for – a roof over your head, food, friends, family, a pet, the health that you DO have).
2) Make a list of 10 things you love about yourself. These can be hobbies that bring YOU joy or aspects of yourself.. are you a good listener? Kind? Generous? So often we repeat to ourselves what we DON’T like about ourselves – this is a powerful exercise in affirming our self love.
3) In the morning or at night before bed the mind is in its most receptive state. It is also the time we are known to “Worry”. Use this time to take a minute or two and reallllly think deeply about a few things you are grateful for and all the aspects that make that person or situation a gift in your life.
4) Tell someone that you care about that you are grateful for them. You will make their day and warm your own heart in the process.
5) Make a Gratitude Journal – at the end of every day or even sporadically during the day – write down things that made you smile, happy or brought a sense of relief to your life.
These are just a few simple and easy ways to express gratitude. There are many ways to express gratitude and as you begin to it raises your energetic vibration allowing MORE things to be grateful to come into your life. How do you express your gratitude toward life and all the wonderful things in it?
In facing any Challenge you have to face CHANGE – it IS even in the word CHALLENGE. When we attempt to undergo significant change in our life it is common for our ego to resist. It has become comfortable in whatever patterns and habits we have set for ourselves. We ALWAYS have the power within us to change those patterns and to begin again just as the perennial flowers die each fall and come back each spring.
I have recently become a Certified Law of Attraction Practitioner and have learned some pretty powerful and EASY to apply tools in making these shifts. As many of you know I healed myself about 6 years ago after learning about the Law of Attraction. So, you might say, “Didn’t you have this down by now?” Well, in some parts of my own life it seemed pretty easy to apply it and see changes pretty rapidly.. in others.. I knew I needed to learn more! We are human and all face our own “stories” that we have told ourselves, heard from our tribe and collective consciousness. The larger the story and the more “evidence” we have seen replayed over and over the more challenging it can seem to make those changes. In taking this course I learned it does NOT have to be so difficult.
When we can truly acknowledge our emotions tied to each situation we can begin to make peace with them and transmute them into more positive emotions. Emotions that will pull more positive results toward us. Ever had something that started your day off on the wrong foot and you began the self talk, “OH it’s going to be one of THOSE days”.. What happened following that? Did it almost seem like the world was out to get you as one thing happened after another to reaffirm what you had said? We DO have the power to alter our reality and our daily life. Just as I saw it with my own health. I SHOULD be in a wheelchair by all doctors predictions and instead am at my healthiest with none of the remaining dis-eases they had diagnosed. We can change our reality in many ways not JUST health. Whatever your challenge is – you can alter it by learning a different way to look at it and taking action to FEEL differently about it.
Whether you have some fears you wish to overcome, need to lose weight, want more abundance, need to stop procrastinating, want to have more self esteem and a more positive attitude, need help with forgiveness, need help with motivation, anger, depression or how to achieve a deeply relaxed state..or ay other emotional or physical healing you feel you need…learning how to apply the Law of Attraction in your own life CAN help.
We are MEANT to be happy and in flow. Unfortunately most of us were not taught that nor were we given the tools on how to achieve it. We CAN overcome what might seem like the biggest of challenges. We hear of people doing it all the time, why not you? Marianne Williamson’s quote is my favorite of all time and it is so appropriate.
Our Greatest Fear
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others. - Marianne Williamson
Embrace your light and know you can move onto be whoever you want to be!!
It can seem almost scary when we realize how much power we have over our own lives. The first thing we tend to do is belittle ourselves for “time wasted” or “not knowing better”. This does no good and will not help anyone move anywhere! We need to make peace with the past so it can no longer hold us there. Forgiveness and self forgiveness is key and sometimes we need some help getting to that point. Remember that not only each day, but each MOMENT is NEW and we can make different decisions, choose different emotions and begin AGAIN! If you begin NOW imagine how different life can look in a week? a month? a year? Feel all the goodness of what you want your life to look like and bask in that for a little while!
If you feel I can help you – I would welcome connecting with you! I am excited to share the new tools I have gained by taking the Law of Attraction Course as well as all the tools I have accumulated by working with clients and with the Law of Attraction in my own life for the last 6 years. I am celebrating these new tools in my toolbox by offering significantly reduced rates for a short time. These will include all of the services I offer as we intuitively shape the coaching to your own needs. You CAN change your life!!
