A MAGICAL TIME OF YEAR

For those of us who celebrate Christmas, and many who do not, it really is a magical time of year. We gather with family, friends and those close to our hearts. We feel more love and we express more love. People are more cheerful and giving (except perhaps in line at the mall). It is as if someone sprinkled an invisible powder in the air that makes us warmer, more forgiving, and incredibly open hearted. The best in us surfaces and we love the feeling of being at our best.

It is a time for gratitude. Each of us has so much to be grateful for. If you do not have a gratitude list, why not make one and remind yourself often? When you can truly feel gratitude for people, events, accomplishments and just for being alive, you are nourishing your body and soul. It feels so good. Think back to a time you are very grateful for; a birth, a graduation, reaching a major goal. Something that made you feel on top of the world, like nothing could touch you. Go back there and relive the memory. Smell what you were smelling, feel what you were touching, make that memory and all the feelings that came with it a reality in your mind. Feel your joy, feel your pride, feel the gratitude for everything that lead up to this moment, this perfect moment. Gratitude is awesome. It feels good, it improves your mental and physical health, and it brings you more to be grateful for. Practice it often. When you live with a constant feeling of gratitude, when you are living in a perpetual state of gratitude, you will then find yourself living the life of your dreams.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

Count your blessings. That is a saying that has stood the test of time. Probably because it is such good advice. Blessings are the gifts we have in life, the things we have to be grateful for. Gratitude is the feeling we get when we are genuinely appreciative of those gifts or blessings. Since gratitude is a feeling, it can be hard to thankful when we are not in a good mood to start with. This is where counting your blessings come in. A gratitude list is simply a blessings list, a list of things you feel fortunate to have or have experienced. Everyone should have one.

Journal 140 res smaller Gratitude, Blessings and MiraclesWhen you are in a place of gratitude, your energy level vibrates at a higher frequency. When you are feeling sad, upset or angry, your vibration is much lower. By reading the list of your blessings and visualizing the events, people or memories, you will naturally elevate your spirits and your energy, making you feel better and have a better life experience.

One of the very cool side effects of taking time to acknowledge the gifts that have been bestowed upon you throughout your life is that you begin to see miracles. When we see a shooting star, we tend to think of it as a rare and miraculous event. Indeed, it is miraculous, but certainly not rare. Because we can only see these arcs of light paint the sky when it is dark and clear, free of clouds that can't be seen but still obscure your sight, we tend to think of them as more significant and meaningful. This is why most people perceive a shooting star as a sign, a miraculous occurrence that holds some kind of significance.

MIRACLES ARE EVERYWHERE

But a shooting star is no less a miracle because it happens more often than you thought it did. And the colors on a butterflies wings are no less a masterpiece of natures design because they are common. The smell of a baby, the smile of a child, the feel of a cool breeze on your cheek, the feel of sand or grass between your toes, the scent of lavender, the unconditional love of your dog… there are so many miracles. Each breath you take, each day you live is a miracle. They are everywhere, and they are all very significant.

When you recognize the every day things that are actually quite miraculous, you are filled with gratitude. And when you are filled with gratitude, you delight in discovering the hidden treasures that are right before you. What a wonderful cycle, yes? To be filled with the joy, bliss and knowledge that everything is perfect and you are exactly where you should be is a gift. We should be diligent about keeping our thoughts and our focus on a life of gratitude. If you can feel the love every day of your life, you will have a life of love as your reward.
