Dear ones, so many of you have either adopted the practice of gratitude or you’ve simply carried it forward from your training as a youth and this is admirable however we observe that few of you understand the potential power that you unleash when you participate in this practice with full comprehension. Doing something because spiritual thought leaders recommend it or your parents demanded it doesn’t give you full access to the power that heart gratitude will unleash in your life. When your gratitude is heart-centered and sincere you free up all other high vibrational emotions. As gratitude calls forth opportunity and abundance it’s easy to feel joyful, to become more loving and to come from a place of overflowing well-being.
Since everything you could ever desire both material and spiritual is comprised of the Divine, when you deny them access you deny yourself entrance into the kingdom of heaven
That state of overflowing well-being is our goal for you but most of you fear the hand of the Divine instead of clearing out the debris that’s blocking its entrance. As you move through the challenges and opportunities of each lifetime baggage may be acquired. Perhaps you feel entitled to or justified in taking a greater share or perhaps you’ve been beaten into believing that you aren’t deserving of any share at all. No matter your viewpoint you’re practicing exclusion instead of balance and when you’re looking at why not, who should not or what can’t be, you’re now in a place of judgment, a place of attachment and a position in which the Divine is being denied access. Since everything you could ever desire both material and spiritual is comprised of the Divine, when you deny them access you deny yourself entrance into the kingdom of heaven. The one place you most want to be.
The kingdom of heaven is not a place, it’s a state of being
Let us be clear, the kingdom of heaven is not a place, it’s a state of being each of you enters when you leave behind the low vibration of fear, the false illusion of competition, one-upmanship and any of the other ways you’ve found to separate yourselves from each other and from paradise. Isn’t it time for you to return to the state of being that is for the highest good of all, the state that guarantees joy and the beingness in which you can fully prosper as others do the same?
When you practice heartfelt gratitude you engage your entire being in a symphony of unconditional love
This dear ones is the place you arrive when you abandon all activities, mindsets, and beliefs that you’ve entered into out of fear. This is the power of the practice of gratitude. Stop saying thank you for that which you neither desired or appreciated. Stop engaging in behavior by rote and begin looking at and purposely choosing that behavior which will bring you the greatest forward motion.
Sincere, heartfelt gratitude is the only energy capable of moving the needle on your wellness scale from empty to full.
When you practice heartfelt gratitude you engage your entire being in a symphony of unconditional love as you seek to find others with whom you can share this blessing. When you are sincerely grateful, the energy is expansive and inclusive. The energy wells up from you and seeks out others who can be included so that all feel touched by the hand of God.
You are where you are because you’ve chosen to be there either with your thoughts, your words or your deeds
So, how is it possible to engage with the gratitude of the heart? First, it’s necessary to stop entertaining fear, abandon desperation and cease looking for others to blame for your misfortune. You are where you are because you’ve chosen to be there either with your thoughts, your words or your deeds. Come away from your pit of despair, now stop and look around you, what do you see? Homes, cars, people in clothing moving amidst a lush backdrop of vegetation. Everywhere you look, when you choose to look, you’ll see abundance. Be grateful. Show appreciation for the bounty that’s before you.
Put aside your petty wants and desires and become grateful for the abundance that has been placed before you. Recognize that none of you need go without, some of you may choose to be without but none of you are forced to go without.
If necessary, each one of you could move to an area of land that was unoccupied and from there you could hunt for food or grow your own. Make your own clothing and shelter or trade with others for the service but none of you have been left with nothing. Some of you have chosen to see only what’s missing. Saying words like, “Thanks for nothing.” You see no bounty so therefore no bounty exists for you. We suggest you change your point of view.
You won’t be able to repress the joy you feel for all of the bounty
If you want to put the power of gratitude to work in your life see only that. Find the myriad of ways in which you’re being provided and cared for and focus on each one of them individually and collectively until you’re able to express sincere gratitude. When you become aware of all that you’ve been given when you realize all that you are when you let go of all limiting beliefs and the negative thoughts that are holding you hostage, waves of gratitude will sing through your veins. You won’t be able to repress the joy you feel for all of the bounty that you’ve received. Instead of looking at what isn’t and feeling angry and deprived, you’ll be looking at was is and expressing joy and sharing love.
It was always that you had everything but you were refusing to see the treasure that was before you.
It was never that you had nothing, it was always that you had everything but you were refusing to see the treasure that was before you. As you learn to understand your own magnificence you’ll come to realize how loved you are. You’ll cease to fear Divine intervention and you’ll begin to welcome it knowing that when you look at what is in your life with joy and appreciation, what is in your life will continue to expand.
Pour your energy into all that you already have that makes your heart sing
Waste no time on what is unwanted, pour your energy into all that you already have that makes your heart sing. Gratitude expressed from the heart ensures that you will always remain in a place of abundant joy.
