Thanksgiving, gratitude and appreciation are powerful spiritual practices.
When we give thanks, we open our awareness to the many ways we live in a giving Universe.
We get to see the richness of Life that is always present.
And we allow our hearts to soften in humility to the grandness and infinite nature of all of Life itself.
At any moment, you can pause and open to an attitude and atmosphere of gratitude.
Even now, take a moment and ask, “What am I grateful for?”
Allow the gratitude to rise and notice your heart opening. Breathe, and see what comes up.
In this spirit of Gratitude, I share with you this prayer from the powerful spiritual teacher Louise Hay that you can use to evoke greater appreciation in your life.
Gratitude Prayer by Louise Hay
Deep at the center of my being there is an infinite well of gratitude.
I now allow this gratitude to fill my heart, my body, my mind, my consciousness, my very being.
This gratitude radiates out from me in all directions, touching everything in my world, and returns to me as more to be grateful for.
The more gratitude I feel, the more I am aware that the supply is endless.
The use of gratitude makes me feel good; it is an expression of my inner joy. It is a warm fuzzy in my life.
I am grateful for myself and for my body.
I am grateful for my ability to see and hear, feel and taste and touch.
I am grateful for my home, and I take loving care of it.
I am grateful for my family and friends, and I rejoice in their company.
I am grateful for my work, and I give it my best at all times.
I am grateful for my talents and abilities, and I continually express them in ways that are fulfilling.
I am grateful for my income, and I know that I prosper where I turn.
I am grateful for all my past experiences, for I know that they were part of my soul’s growth.
I am grateful for all of nature, and I am respectful for every living thing.
I am grateful for today, and I am grateful for the tomorrows to come.
I am grateful for Life now and forever more.
I would love to hear what you are grateful for. Please feel free to leave a comment below.
Thank you for the blessing that you are.
Abundant Blessings and Namaste.
A little about me…
My unique ability is helping people believe they can claim the driver’s seat of their lives. I do that by helping them figure out what’s really holding them back, get clear on their heart’s vision, and then fully supporting them in a safe and sacred space to bring that vision to reality.
I’m a spiritual life coach, and I also provide trainings and support for organizations and corporations on the topic of personal leadership. I’m also a newly published author of my book “The Creative Impulse: Answering the Highest Calling of Your Heart.”
