Celebrate Thanksgiving by Loving Life
A friend of mine, Christi Daniels, gave a talk at the local Science of Mind center about coming home and appreciation. Christi talked about her intense year after intending to find a home within her self and all the stuff that came up to show her what was holding her back. The biggest takeaway was how gratitude is a gateway to coming home. And how Christi experiences appreciation as more than gratitude. For her, appreciation is an energy of enlivening of possibility, rather than simple gratitude for what is. Appreciation opens the door to higher levels of being like peace, love, and enlightenment.
Then we shared a delightful mediation by Sharon McErlane from the Grandmothers Speak group.
During this meditation, I heard several things. First, my work is to hold the “net of light” energy wherever I go, blessing all beings. Secondly, to be more authentic, allowing the unique creative energies that are me to flow. For example, I was buzzing with energy during this mediation; being very still and rooted in my body, while also subtly moving my fingers which allowed more energy to flow. Then walking home, I heard that we all must create our own path. There is no one right path. Be yourself and follow your heart.
As further confirmation, that afternoon I received an offer for a possible new place to live, encouragement about the beauty of my photos, a friend wanting to connect, and feedback about my kind and loving nature. Not a bad return for simply connecting to the light and allowing energy to flow! 🙂
I am really resonating (or appreciating!) with the material on the Net of Light website. Their mission is to empower women and comfort men, awakening all to the feminine energy, helping to balance the earth energies. I love the wisdom from the Grandmothers for holding steady in these turbulent times.
Embrace the All and when we say ‘the All’, we mean everyone and everything. No exceptions. No matter how it may appear to you, there is no ‘enemy’, the Grandmothers declared; there is only drama–the play of negative energy. So hold steady and observe the drama play out. Your heart will propel you into right action when action is needed. Always stand firm in the power of love and trust the wisdom of your heart. Your love IS your power. ~ The Grandmothers
May we learn to love it all. Hold steady and share the love.
