Gratitude and Your Spiritual Path

“Thank you” is one of the most powerful spells we can utter. It not only sets up a resonance of simple gratitude, but also the recognition that we are all intertwined, and we can only get by by receiving help. This can be help from other people, help from institutions, help from deity, help from the universe, wherever it comes from, help is absolutely necessary to move through this life. And expressing our thanks acknowledges that.

I find that it’s often a good a good exercise to list the things that I’m grateful for. Some people list things every day, but I find that making a long list once a year can be a powerful way to acknowledge all that’s good and right in your life. It sets up an energy of positivity, and helps you focus on all the blessings in your life. Whether you agree with the Law of Resonance or not (where the more positivity you vibrate with, the more positivity you attract), it’s sometimes just nice to get that warm fuzzy by thinking about all the people, places, things, (AND PETS) that have brought you joy during the year.

So what’s at the top of my list? My husbear. My wonderful (and sometimes rotten) kitties. My friends and family. My job (frustrating as it can be sometimes). My home with a roof that doesn’t leak. The fact that I have more energy and overall health than I had this time last year. I have SO MUCH to be thankful for that it’s kind of overwhelming. In a good way.

What about you? What will you be showing gratitude for this year? Have you made your list? I’m sure that if you do, you’ll find there’s more there than you thought possible. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all.

Blessed be! <3
