The Importance of Gratitude

November is a month infused with abundance and gratitude.  For farmers and gardeners, harvest takes precedence.  The human experience is all about learning.  We are students of this planet, of this life.  We each have various goals and opportunities to learn, grow, and evolve.

One way to learn, grow, and evolve is by raising our personal vibration. 

When we raise our personal vibration (or frequency), collectively, we can change our communities, our environment, and our planet as proven through the Maharishi Effect: https://research.miu.edu/maharishi-effect/

A focus on service to others, love, and gratitude help to raise our personal vibrations.

A simple way to be in service to others is by meditating daily.  While meditating, imagine your own body filling with pure Light energy.  Imagine that this energy has the power to transform you (your mind, your body, your personal frequency).  As the Light enters, permeates, and penetrates each part of the body, say to yourself or aloud, “Thank you for ..” So for example, as I see the Light enter my toes, I might say, “Thank you toes for helping me balance and for giving me a solid base to stand on.  Thank you feet for supporting the body.”

Once the body is completely filled with gratitude and Light, imagine that the Light is so abundant, it fills the energetic space around you.  Then, imagine sharing that Light with your family, your neighborhood, the schools, the greater community, the state, the country, and ultimately the planet.  (You can see this as a wave of Light emanating from you and surrounding every living thing.)

November is a wonderful time to take stock in our lives. These simple steps can help to bring balance to the mind (when it wants to get entangled into cognitive distortions like catastrophizing and should’ves).

1.) Carve out some time to sit alone, maybe light a candle and burn some incense or sage.

2.) Connect with your heart.

3.)  Take some deeps breaths or practice some pranayama.

4.)  Create a list of things you are grateful for.  Include things you have experienced and/or accomplished this year.

5.)  Display the list somewhere prominent so that when you are experiencing a “down” day, you can go to this list and remember who you are.

If you’re interested in generating abundance for 2021 and have already read or watched The Secret but are looking for something deeper, I recommend the book E Squared by Pam Grout and/or completing the 21 Day Abundance Meditation Challenge (offered by Deepak Chopra and found on YouTube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfxs_WxswWg)

Gratitude journaling is also a great practice.  If the thought of writing long, flowy narratives makes your stomach do flips, try bullet journaling.  It’s brief little blurbs, like lists you can make.  Reviewing the list periodically as well as adding to it helps to increase a sense of peace and well-being.
