Ten Days Of Gratitude

Make it a Habitude of Gratitude!

Unity in Gender Diversity invites you to enjoy Ten Days of Gratitude by stating one thing you are grateful for each day till Thanksgiving.  This starts on the 18th and runs until Nov. 27th.  Of course every day is a day for gratitude, but for those of us who have not developed this habit, now is a perfect opportunity to do just that!

The secret to powerful gratitudes and prayers is both intention and emotion.  So the object is to feel your gratitudes as deeply as you can, to contemplate their meaning and purpose, and to imagine connecting to Source, (gratitude comes thru you not from you, so we are simply owning it).

Grace and Gratitude are two traits I have been developing all my life and I suspect you have also been developing these muscles maybe without even noticing!  Without Gratitude life simply stops working.  It is the grease that keeps the engine running. Grace is the way in which we do this.  I invite you to test this right now over the next 10 days!  Not only does what you focus on grow, but that which you are grateful for is attracted to you.  “Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.” Sarah Ban Breathnach

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I feel gratitude is so important and because I feel that I am pretty good at it.  The food is not bad either <G>.  The Native American’s taught us one important thing about this holiday so please consider the following.

The food you eat is a gift from Great Spirit (even if you paid for it).  Life is being transformed to a Higher form by us eating it and giving our grace to the animal or plant that is offering it up.  We always thank the animal or plant for giving its life so that we may live.  It is a thought and a feeling that becomes a habit every time you consume something.  “Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.” Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear.

Thanksgiving is a daily event, not just one day a year!  Of course holidays are about family and friends sharing gratitude for each other as well as all their other gifts.  In this busy world of diverse business and world travel many families no longer live in close proximity so the holidays are an excuse to come together.  As far as gratitude and grace, well these are daily practices which we are reminded of and celebrate at least once a year at Thanksgiving.

To participate in the Ten Days of Gratitude, go to my facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/sequoiaelisabeth  and make your comments on my posts, one each day starting on the 18th.  I will also be posting on my website, or if you prefer just choose one thing you are grateful for each day to meditate on, write it down, and share it!  With practice it becomes a daily habit and leads to a more joyous life.

Thanksgiving Is My Favorite Holiday

“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.” Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I feel gratitude is so important and because I feel that I am pretty good at it.  The Native Americans teach several important things about this holiday, so let us look at a few.

The food you eat is a gift from Great Spirit (even if you paid for it).  Life is being converted to a Higher form by us consuming it with grace given to the animal or plant.  We always thank the animal or plant for giving its life so that we may live.  It is a thought and a feeling that becomes a habit every time you consume something, yes, so this goes for all consumables, gas, paper, products, etc.

The Earth (Gaia) is alive!  We need to treat her as such!  Take only what you need and leave each place you visit (including your own home) better than you found it.  This means depositing trash in the proper receptacle, being careful/mindful of the space you occupy and treat it as if it were your own while remembering others who may be using this space, if not now at some time in the future.  The Native Americans call this Seven Generational thinking, meaning your actions should consider the next seven generations who live on that land.

cornucopia-thanksgivingAbundance is everywhere!  Gaia provides for our every need and those who realize this and act with respect and gratitude draw this to them.  This is called Prosperity mindedness.  It comes from deep within you and springs out like a fountain, thus the cornucopia symbol used this time of year.  Have faith you always have what you need.  It may not be what you would prefer or you may desire more, but needs are always met.  The more one practices Prosperity Mindedness, the more one attracts to themselves.  This is done by giving till it hurts as the saying goes.  What you give another, you give yourself!  This is the very meaning of Oneness and if you have been paying attention you completely understand we are all One – One with Gaia, and all her family of animals, plants, and minerals.  Separation is the Grand Illusion… some would call it the Human Game, but that is a whole other story.

I wish to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for reading this blog and supporting Unity in Gender Diversity.  The feeling of gratitude includes grace, joy, wholeness, pleasing, praise, honor, and purity.  Take a minute now and feel it….  Practice/Remember this feeling often!   Know you are Love and we are Home.

Thanks Giving

Thank you for staying here by my side over the years!  It has almost been two years since I began Transitions Blog and it seems like much longer (giggle).  As we all know Transition is a process that happens over a long period of time often without us even knowing the change is occurring and then bam something big happens and we realize how far we have actually come!

Grace and Gratitude are two traits I have been developing all my life and I suspect you have also been developing these muscles maybe without even noticing!  Without Gratitude life simply stops working.  It is the grease that keeps the engine running. Grace is the way in which we do this.
