I love the saying "count your blessings." It's such a wonderful phrase to remind you to stop and appreciate what you have. We are so blessed to be in this world. This time of year is such a magical time when people are in a gentler frame of mind and are kinder to each other. Even though it's important to count your blessings, it's more important to enjoy them, and savor them. When we allow ourselves to simply enjoy our blessings we give ourselves and those around us the space to feel blessed with us.
Google's definition of blessing is: "God's favor and protection." I LOVE that definition because it's true. When you feel blessed and feel it in your heart you do feel God's favor and protection and you walk though life in the Truth of that knowing. You're empowered, inspired, cherished, and honored knowing that you're blessed by God. Feel blessed today and allow the blessings you feel to emit out to others so that they'll be reminded that they too are blessed - that they too are in "God's favor and protection." What a beautiful gift to give yourself, your loved ones and to others during these Holy Days.
May you know that you're blessed and always have been.
Tis the season to celebrate pure unconditional love. The kind of love that never wanes or diminishes. The love that just IS and that continues to grow and expand only because we have that love inside of us to give. That's the thing with love, there's no finite capacity for it - the more you give the more you have to give. As we celebrate the holiday season we're blessed to be given the time, sanctioned by our community, to come together with our loved ones so we can celebrate the love we have for each other. Spending time with our loved ones during the holidays allows us to fuel up with the love we need so we can embark upon another new year filled with optimism, hope and enthusiasm. This month’s wisdom reminds us to appreciate what we have and to love what we have. It’s the time of year to appreciate everything you’ve experienced this year as well as everyone who's graced your path for they've significantly contributed to where you're at today...even, if you don't think they have.
Christ = Love. The meaning of Christ actually means Love. I learned that from my Reiki Master Teacher Merle Sunde-Marschall, a very evolved soul who taught me so much about life, wisdom, and Be-ing. She changed my life and I'm profoundly grateful that she graced my path and feel so blessed that she was my first spiritual teacher.
Unconditional love allows you the ability to just be - to simply live in each moment as it unfolds. It requires no planning, no structure, no paradigm...it just IS. It's the ability to allow yourself the freedom to live and be as you are. When you feel completely secure and confident in yourself, feeling unconditionally loved you emit that same comfort, safety and love towards others. This is an invaluable gift. Be courageous this month and share the love that you have for others, your fellow human being, your animals and for your life. Simply Be and exude Love...it's easy. It's why you were born.
This month's tip reminds you how important it is to take stock of what you're grateful for in life. It's a time to reflect on how you've been living your life this past year. It's a time to reflect on what you may need to let go of, what you may need to incorporate, and how you're going to move forward as you round out the end of 2013. Ask yourself: What do I want to create? What am I grateful for? What do I need to release in order to move forward? Take a few moments to sit and reflect on these questions. Write down your answers...they may surprise you.
Everyone has purpose in life. Simply, waking up in the morning and enjoying your cup of coffee is a way of thanking God that you're alive and Be-ing your purpose. It's the simple day to day things that make life worth while. Gratitude is the key for continuing to receive more blessings and more abundance into your life.
