SONY DSCThe thing about gratitude (even if you’re not feeling it right now)….


….is, that it’s one of those powerful states of being that can completely transform your life…and it’s also deeply human to not always be fully in it, and feeling it!

So if you’re ‘not feeling it’, despite it being the Thanksgiving Day in the US today, don’t worry, I’ll show you how you can get there, no matter where you’re starting from.

Just over four years ago

I wasn’t exactly waking up with a song on my lips, and gratitude in my heart, either. It was more like panic over how I was going to pay my bills, and blaming myself for being such a failure.

And then something changed…

I began hearing internal whispers, encouraging me to start feeling grateful for what was already in my life. At first I couldn’t think of a darn thing, with all the chaotic negativity swirling around in there. Then the image of my beautiful son appeared, and in an instant my heart flooded with love and gratitude.

I then put my hands over my heart and felt its steady beat…that too filled me with profound gratitude for just being alive, and for having this rich human experience, with all its ups and downs. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ~ Lao-tzu  That was my first step.

I then made a daily ritual…

…of listing all the things I was grateful for that day, even though it didn’t come easily or naturally at first. I stayed with it, as I knew it was going to help me change my life…and it did.

I wanted to share this story with you, in case you needed to hear it today.

I also wanted to give you a gift…

It’s from my ELVS series (ELVS stands for Essentia Light Vibrations™). It’s a series of simple daily gratitude mantras that will help you get started in creating your own daily gratitude ritual.
