Gratitude is one of those sacred tools that can easily be glossed over. If you're caught up in a surface “Thank You” and politeness you'll totally miss it. Gratitude is an energy that moves through you like a tsunami wave of abundance. It's expansive, energizing, entrancing.
Take a moment right now to list out on a piece of paper everything that you're grateful for . . . Don't stop at the stuff: your books, your home, your car and clothes. Extend it to everything around you: the chair you're sitting on, the natural flow of your breath, the way your belly ripples when you laugh really hard. Take a moment to notice the wonder all around you: the child you just passed on the street who smiled at you disarmingly, the feel of your toes against your shoes, the way your heart expands when someone you love walks into the room.
Infinite miracles abound in your world, take a moment to notice them and acknowledge their gifts to you. Walk around as the abundant being that you are and give “Thanks!” throughout your day. This simple practice of seeing the “Wow!” will shift your default perspective into one of flow and fun. Let the lightness of your love infuse everything and everyone.
Thank you, my friends, for being on the BIG Shifts Adventure with me.
