5 Ways to Express Gratitude

 

We often think of gratitude as "gratitude for" something.

A very pure of expression of gratitude has no "for" after it.

It is a state of being that floods its joy on anything and everything that enters its field of awareness.

Many people find power and wisdom in using a gratitude journal, writing gratitude letters, and cultivating an attitude of gratitude.  Are you one of them? These folks have discovered an express route to happiness.  Gratitude is the key to a joyful and harmonious life.

Here I want to show you a fun way to find a state of gratitude within you and not only feel it, but express it.

The added benefit of these forms of expression becomes a perpetual motion machine.  As  you express your gratitude in these ways, you prime the pump of your talents.  Your face becomes radiant and your true light shines through your personality. People respond to you in loving and generous ways and your life flourishes.

Of course, the result of all that is that you end up with more to write in your gratitude journal!

This gets gratitude cycling through your life in a way that is self perpetuating.  It's like a spiritual ecstasy perpetual motion machine!

Here is the very simple technique…

Ponder these 5 questions and as the answers erupt in you, gratitude will be your experience.

5 Questions That Lead to a State of Gratitude:

What can I do differently today?

Consider how you can take a different route to work or prepare a meal in a different order or with foods you've never tried before.  Adding something new can shake up an old pattern and open you to heightened experience that floods you with gratitude.

How can I express myself more joyfully today?

 Here's one.  How about if you extend love to the person on the other end of the phone as you say "Hello!"  Yes, before you even know who it is!

 How can I dance more today?

This is my favorite one.  You can really be creative with this one.

What can I say today that I have never said?

Grab a dictionary and find some new words that make your mouth (and your mind)  feel good as you say them.

What can I praise today?

This one is endless.  Go crazy with it.

 Pick one of these at the top of your day and let it sprinkle its scintillating suggestion throughout the activities of your Monday. Pick another on Tuesday.  I wish you much dancing, colorful joy, and a splendid new vocabulary.

I did a YOFA jhe Session for the list today (including the free list).

Today's session focused on the harmony between desire and ego.

People use both these words in so many different ways that I hesitate to even use them here.  There is no way to know what meanings they conjure for you and since they are so loaded, they usually cause some emotion.

If you have a copy of Rooted in the Infinite handy, you can refer to chapter 12 for a full explanation of the meaning of desire and ego in the YOFA system.  For simplicity's sake, here is what I mean by these words:

Ego – the individual, focused, limited perspective, personality, and point of view of your human incarnation.

Desire – The movement of life force in you toward something that feels good to you.

Now, I know that you may have very different definitions for these words, but for now, at least you know what I'm talking about as I describe the effects of today's jhe session.

When desire and ego are out of alignment with each other and with your essence, you travel a very rocky road.  I'm sure I don't have to tell you that. 

Today's session had a beautiful quality as the 2nd and 3rd chakras tuned in to the essence of their purpose and aligned with the 3 axes (this is all explained in greater depth in the book) for a truly harmonious expression.

I expect you to feel the results of this session in a few ways:

1 – A sense of calm.  Much like the calm after a storm, when your ego and your desires move from struggle and conflict to peace and partnership, there's this feeling of prosperity. 

Your whole personality becomes:

  • brighter
  • more alert,
  • more interested
  • more enthusiastic
  • and more open to authentic interactions with others

2 – Confidence.  When the ego stops trying to prove its worthiness, your true brilliance and talent come forward and you can feel the value of your uniqueness in a way that has momentum.  It is also truly appreciative of the uniqueness in others. Your confidence is not threatened by the success of others and so you become a bright light to others.

3 – Home Runs.  You become more effective, more efficient, and more able to complete things successfully with one effort.  Things that might have taken months get done in one day.  Things that might have taken years get done in one week.  How can that be?  Your heightened alignment makes you so much clearer an efficient that you sail through things with no obstructions.

Thank you for being a part of this jhe session.

With Love,
Rebbie

Today's YOFA jhe Session 8-24-08

xaxisabovebelowsm.jpgI did a YOFA jhe Session for the list today.

Today's session supports the jhe in your physical body and your personality. 

This session focused on the side-to-side X-axis for healing.  (For more about the role of the X-axis in physical and emotional healing, please consult Rooted in the Infinite.)

As a result of this session I expect you to feel a sense of your body as peaceful within and active without.  This may give you a "springy" feeling.  It makes your muscles feel more elastic and your joints more flexible.  It makes your cells more tuned to each other so that they work together as a unified whole (you).

  • If you are dealing with a health problem, this can accelerate your healing and reduce any symptoms you may be experiencing.  This can be especially helpful in reducing what manifest as sharp pains to mere discomfort or nothing at all.
  • If you are basically "healthy" this session can bring out an energy in your muscles that makes you want to be more active, more athletic, or more expressive with your body. 
  • If you are a singer, your voice may be louder today. 

Since this increase in energy is coupled with (and springs from) a sense of inner peace, it is authentic and produces good results in your life.

In your personality this session helps you to feel good about yourself and can actually make you look more bright, clear, and attractive.
