An Explosion of Gratitude...

As I see it, there are only two ways to end the year 2020 ~ You can end it with the energy of "OMG I'm glad that's done!" or with the energy of Gratitude. The first, I feel, dishonours the journey of our lives and the gift that uncomfortable times can hold for us and our world.


Ending the year, especially a challenging year, with gratitude is an honouring of life, your Life and not just any kind of gratitude, I'm talking a deep deep, feel it in your bones kind, a fall down on your knees, tears streaming down my face kind of gratitude... because your one lovely precious life deserves that kind of gratitude...

But that's a bit of a challenge isn't it? Especially this year. It's been probably the most challenging year that humanity has faced for a very long time, in this century at least and the roller coaster ride is still not over...


However if it's really true for you, as it is for me, that discomfort is growth and that times of great challenge provide the greatest opportunities...if this is not just a nice quote for you on a fridge magnet somewhere then gratitude is not a "nice" thing in these times, it's foundational.


As well, if you believe it's true, and I'm not here to convince you, that gratitude is one of our highest vibrational states; that gratitude makes you magnetic and draws what you desire towards you, then you have to reach for that kind of gratitude and in these times, that is very challenging. Yet that is the work that we are being called to do I believe...that if we commit to it and have at the heart of our daily routine is transformational for these times.


For it's easy to be grateful for what is good in our life and what we have and even when we do, occasionally, practice this kind of "easier" gratitude, it can feel inauthentic and robotic, in these times.


Feeling it, authentically feeling gratitude, is important because you cannot trick the universe...


Transformational gratitude is the kind that you practice deeper within; the kind that you feel with every ounce of your being. Transformational gratitude is not only being thankful for what you have in your life (your home, your family, food on the table etc) ~ Life changing gratitude is feeling grateful for ALL of it ~ gratitude for every single step, every discomfort, every pain and sorrow...and Gratitude in Advance.


Gratitude in advance is not something we have been conditioned to practicing because, as I stated, our usual practice of gratitude is for what is right before us. However when you go within as you do in Meditation, you can begin to access & practice gratitude for what will be, gratitude before what you desire is real and right in front of you...gratitude before it's manifested ~ for that kind of gratitude is Transformational Gratitude - it's like you are shaking up the universe and it hears you loud and clear. That kind of gratitude actively shifts you into such a high vibrational state that you cannot help but draw it to you.


But that kind of gratitude practice doesn't come easy to the busy stressful analytical mind, especially in these times. I think it's actually almost impossible for that part of our mind.


That kind of Transformational Gratitude has to be practiced within...deeper within...when the brain and mind are calmer and the brain begins to communicate and create coherence with the heart...that is where and when to practice transformational gratitude - an Explosion of Gratitude...


So that's how we are choosing to end the year...with this practice, on the Symphonies Journey...beginning December 1st 2020 ~ I hope you will join us...
