Gratitude & Giving Thanks, Our Real Life Super Power
I woke up this morning feeling slightly disconnected and out of it, and for a moment saw the grumpy gremlin try to creep his way in.That is, until I remembered it was Thanksgiving, and decided to do an intentional reset – of my mind, emotions, heart-space and spiritual relaxed self.
I took a full breath and dove deep into the pool of gratitude I cultivate within myself. Once, there I returned back to the rich sensation of appreciation for all that is in my life. It’s not all perfect by any means, but it’s really fucking good when I take a heartfelt look at it.
As this return to self set in, I also got the idea to write this blog. As I believe it is the waves gratitude we emit which are the greatest magnetizers of the creative force.
Gratitude is a Super Power we all possess yet few of us wield to our full potential.
Me? Often I’m great about living as a vessel of thanks giving, and sometimes it’s fleeting and I’m forgetful. Such seems to be the nature of important things to help us stay centered, we like to forget about them.
Did you know gratitude and thanks is the root of all money and commerce?
What you mean it’s not evil?
Lol, no, it’s definitely not evil. Way back in the day when trade ruled commerce, and someone gave you something and you didn’t have something to give them back right away, you may have wanted a token of gratitude to give them to recognize the gift. This was the origins of coins and money.
In fact, if you wanted to make sure you could keep track of that token, you might have your face stamped on it. That’s where money as we know it now came from, but we use deceased famous politicians & royalty’s bust instead of our own now (A clue as to how we lost control of our gratitude & commerce system). Seriously.
Those who became the richest were those who were the most giving. Some would argue they had the most to give, but I think we have to look deeper. As I’ve noticed that those who desire to give the most do tend to have the most to give.
Maybe if we all practiced gratitude in action we could redistribute the wealth disparity.
Why be forgetful when you can be for-giving?
As a person dedicated to living my life as an experiment of gratitude and putting heart into everything I do, I have found a major event horizon within my perception.
That is, when I’m just thinking about what I can get, from family & friends, clients, business and the World in general, I feel distanced from my truth. I feel, sometimes strongly or subtly, that the World is caving in on me. Cue money worries, introverted paranoia, feelings of the need to escape and a less-than successful and supportive escape routine. My creativity isn’t obsolete, but it’s shrouded in the filter of my own self-obsessive and selfish cycles.
However, in as much contrast as acid and alkaline, when I’m living in my for-giving place, things seem to flow, there is a natural magnetism to my life and business. My relationships are mostly healthy and I’m always thinking about how I can give to those around me.
Not to mention, I’m literally forgiving everyone around me. Some kind of Spiritual non-stick coating sets in, and problems, worries and issues slide right on by. I see them as giving me something, so I receive it, and turn around and pass It on.
One night in an Ayahuasca Ceremony…
I was being shown the immense power of gratitude. After hours of sitting side by side in my lighthouse of gratitude for everyone I know and the perfect unfolding of life, as well as my selfish, survival and anal retentive ways, Mama Medicina, whispered into my Year.
Gratitude is the Fabric Softner of the Universe
I was shown how when we open up to gratitude, we soften ourselves and our hearts. We literally make room for the new and create spaciousness within ourselves for the Divine.
We clear out the out-dated rusty wires that have been anchoring us down to expired past stories through our emotional underpinnings. We set ourselves free by truly integrating the past through forgiveness. Through Gratitude we install fiberoptic giga-bit wiring into our consciousness, allowing us to be instruments of peace, love, grace, prosperity and the all powerful Creative Force of Spirit.
We show up to the moment and ask it, “What can I give to you?”
And in return, the moment gives to us.
Gratitude & Giving Thanks, The Human Super Power
This, dear reader, is nothing short of a Super Power. We often associate Super Powers with instantaneous explosive ability, and this is a gentler one. One might say a more feminine, soft and gradual one.
It’s such a powerful Super Power that you have to wield it with incredible trust, tact, mastery and consistency. You have to create with it, share it and give it to others. It’s a virus of love that’s ready to infest the eager minds and hearts of all who need.
It’s such a smart Super Power that it literally controls matter. It transforms the entirety of reality, through innovation, recognition, good will. It does sot thoughtfully, and through every good deed, action and thanks that is given.
Give thanks for what you have in your life, as every little bit of it is supporting you in embodying your True Essence.
Practice Gratitude & Thanks Giving On the Daily
Because it’s a Biological Advantage & will Accelerate your Evolution.
Because it will make you happier, and in the least at peace with however you are feeling.
Because if you don’t you’re selfish or suffering and it may be happening because you are withholding a gift that you are here to give.
Because it’s the easiest way to manifest your dreams and set yourself free.
Because it’s the highest-form of Spiritual Enlightenment, to live in generosity and appreciation toward others.
Because if you want it to, it will make you rich beyond your wildest dreams, and I’m not just talking about money.
Because it’s the Origin of all Sharing.
Because it’s your Super Power, and, unlike the Hulk, you won’t destroy things if you wield it everyday, you’ll create Heaven on Earth, Right Here, Right Now.
I am so incredibly grateful for you. In fact, call upon the energy of 100,000 Stars to shower you in loving appreciation for exactly who you are.
Let’s Transform the World through Giving Thanks
