What Are You Thankful For?

Yesterday, my oldest daughter came home from school with a homework assignment to create a list of things she is thankful for. We sat down together and for about 2 hours and we came up with 224 things!!! It was a wonderful assignment as it created a cherished memory between the both of us. Afterward we proceeded to spend the rest of the evening sharing chores around the house with an incredible feeling of lightness and joy. It’s amazing how taking the time to acknowledge the things that you are grateful for can be so heart opening!

As we approach the USA holiday of Thanksgiving, we are reminded to give thanks by reflecting on the things in life that we are grateful for. Although we are in the midst of planetary struggle and economic strife, it has become ever more important to maintain an attitude of gratitude each day, in every moment as much as possible, in order to maintain a sense of balance as we move through these intensely changing times.

I invite you to create some time over the next day or two to connect with the center of your heart. Find a quiet spot to relax your mind and body so your awareness can gently enter into the spacious stillness of your heart’s center. We can better assist this process by creating a list of all the things we are grateful for before sitting down to meditate. When we commit our thoughts to paper by writing them down, we create a space for our heart’s intelligence to emerge. At first you may think of just a few things that you are grateful for. Eventually that list will continue to build until gratitude effortlessly flows out of you like a river onto your paper. Now your thoughts are captured, recorded, and anchored into physical shape and form. This list can act as a focal point that serves to carry you through any adversities you may be facing, or when you lose sight of the things that truly hold the most meaning in your life, or when you feel lost in the dark, or stuc in the mud. You can also hold this list in your hands as you meditate upon your heart to help keep you focused on your intention.
