In the spirit of sharing, dedicate your meditation practice to someone in need. Put your hands together in front of your heart and take a moment to connect with your dedication.
To honor Thanksgiving, we’ve been talking about gratitude all month long. Thanksgiving began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the harvest from the preceding year.
Today we’re wrapping up our gratitude series by giving thanks for all the blessings that life has bestowed upon us.
The four principles of gratitude we’re working with this month are:
1. Count your blessings to fully reap the benefits of the seeds you have sown, cultivated, grown, and harvested. Dive deeper into this topic by reviewing May’s Monday Medi Moments here.
2. Have reverence for what you stand on (the harvest), for what you stand for, and for what you stand under. Have reverence for life, for your breath, for what you’re consuming, and all that you have. Have reverence for the things that make us human.
3. Honor what’s important, because what you honor expands in your life. Honoring is an expression of sincerity for the things that matter most in your life. Honor is the expression of reverence.
4. Give thanks for all of your blessings. Acknowledge the past year (what you harvested) and take stock in your year to come. Dive deeper into this topic by reviewing our Monday Medi celebrating Rosh Hashanah here.
Be in a state of gratitude. Create a daily practice of noticing and acknowledging all the blessings in your life. Nothing expands your blessings more than sharing your blessings with others; that’s the essence of Thanksgiving. We are born to be grateful, love, and connect with each other. Cultivate your blessings by acknowledging them and sharing them.
Our heart is the connection point of our intuition and the spirit. Love, kindness, and gratitude is the energy that makes us smarter, more connected, and happier. Be thankful for your blessings and your blessings will expand in your life.
We’ll leave you with the following quote:
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.”
