Practicing Gratitude

Thank You. It’s something that you may hear often. You may not realize that those two words are incredibly powerful. Gratitude is the Spirit’s medicine. It invigorates the Soul to see all that it has without looking any further. We live in a world that is constantly wanting more. Wanting more material goods, more money, larger portions of food, more time. You may find yourself feeling thankful for possessions you have, finding great significance and validation in their part in your life. 

Sufi Master, Hafiz, says:

“Even
After
All this time
The sun never says to the earth,

"You owe
Me."

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the
Whole Sky.

Each day I wake up and write down 5 things I am grateful for (or as I like to say Great-FULL). Today, I urge you to look at what you have and see how Source shows up for you always. It is when our minds change from our Ego and asking for more and only seeing gratitude for the things that we hold as a definition of us to being content and allowing ourselves to see what we’re thankful for and what is serving us 

It is not what we have that defines our worth, but how we see ourselves without it that is the loudest. Without those things, who are you? Our Ego stores these lessons of measuring always. It is our job to understand how we separate and see the larger picture - not holding onto things or limiting our belief in ourselves based on what is showing up in a material form. Step forward into the power of your Soul and see that it is you that is the richest and has the most by just being content and loving the very thing that is you.

With Love,
Dayna
