Reflections of beauty and balance for 2020.
The Thanksgiving holiday is a perfect time to reflect on the year we’ve just experienced and acknowledge the many reasons we have to feel grateful. It’s true that 2020 has been crazy for us all. The twists and turns have taken us down paths we never knew we would experience. It’s also true that all roads have a destination and I believe that we are on a journey meant to bring us an increased understanding of our Soul’s mission in this lifetime, including the understanding of duality – the good and the bad, the healthy and the toxic, higher emotions and lower emotions.
As Lao Tzu states in the Tao Te Ching:
“When the people of the world all know beauty as beauty, there arises the recognition of ugliness.
When they all know the good as good, there arises the recognition of evil.”
To remind myself of this and to stay centered and focused, each evening I take the time to jot down three or four things in my gratitude journal. Then, I follow up with an empowering affirmation for each statement. What may appear to be a small item in a busy day still carries a significant amount of high frequency vibrations in the world of gratitude!
“I saw a leaf in the shape of a heart. I am aware of love.”
“I heard a toddler laughing with delight. I am aware of joy.”
“I helped a client feel aligned and well. I am honored to be of service.”
“I encountered a challenging situation and managed with ease. I am confident and trust my instincts.”
Recognizing these experiences reminds me of the beauty life brings and the growth opportunities it presents. It’s easy to be grateful for good things and fun times. It’s mindful to be aware of a provocation, see the lesson in it and express gratitude for the higher perspective it provided.
My Chakra Center has been a magnet for truly incredible experiences and encounters. I have had the honor of meeting and interacting with the most amazing people and YOU, my fellow Wellness Warriors, are on my gratitude list. YOU help me evolve each day and become who I am. For this, I hold you in high esteem.
I wish you a safe, healthy and delightful Thanksgiving holiday.
Sending Love Peace Joy
