Happy Thanksgiving

“Don’t minimize your light to fit into a situation in your life, be the gift that you’re meant to be. That is the only place where your soul can thrive. You are a gift to the world, you are the Divine made manifest in our world; act accordingly!” Michael Beckwith

My life of gratitude begins with my eyes closed and giving thanks for my life and the magnificent day ahead of me. My day begins with saying thanks for this bountiful and sunny day in which I get to play and from which I receive so many blessings from the Universe. I am grateful for my life, for my health, for my family, for my children, for my ancestors and for my current life circumstances. I give thanks for all of it; for the past, for the now and for all the miraculous and magical that is still to come.

I am grateful to be alive playing in this amazing playground we call earth. I give thanks for the beauty, I give thanks for the magic of waking up and watching the birds bathe in the water in the fountain in front of my house. I give thanks for each and every flower whose blossoms decorate my garden. I love to watch the dance that each butterfly performs while visiting those dignified flowers. I give thanks for the magnificence I feel inside of me. I give thanks for this deep and abiding connection with the Divine that is with me 24/7 and never diminished. It is always open and available, even in those days when I am tired or feeling sick – and even on those days when I didn’t do the right thing. Those days when my mind is filled with dark clouds, even then I know that this Universal opening that is always available, and who I am is never dimmed. It is always shining as a guide and pushing me forward toward my best life. It simply awaits my choice.

Listening to the idea that we are all one and embracing the fluidity of the dancing energy of oneness, I allow my mind to join in that energy of perfection and completion. I know that all is well, even though there are so many crazy stories that focus on the chaos in our world I know that by living in this magical turbulence it means that all things that no longer serve my growth are being cleansed and in their place more of that which is beautiful can appear. I help change the chaotic world with my own emergence.

I know that living in question (and outside assumption) opens the doors to infinite possibilities. I choose to see chaos, turbulence and fear as humanity’s steps into the glorious possibility of emerging as the new and improved human Being – one that is resilient, calm and composed. This idea is one I am the most grateful for!

Knowing that Gratitude, Magic and possibility are the atmosphere and realm of this emergence, I plant myself in the turbulence of this change and give thanks for all of my blessings.

So, here I raise my voice to say THANK YOU for the amazing blessing you are in my life! I am so humbled by your friendship and your love and the opportunity to partake of this energy of unity, love and thanksgiving. I welcome the season of generosity of spirit. I am open to ever more of this amazing life. I am so grateful!!!


¡Feliz día de acción de gracias!

“No minimices tu luz para encajar en una situación de tu vida, sé el regalo que estás destinado a ser. Ese es el único lugar donde tu alma puede prosperar. Eres un regalo para el mundo, eres lo Divino manifestado en nuestro mundo; ¡actúa acorde!” Michael Beckwith

Mi vida de gratitud comienza con los ojos cerrados y dando gracias por mi vida y por el magnífico día que tengo por delante. Mi día comienza dando las gracias por este día abundante y soleado en el que puedo jugar en este espacio sagrado y del que recibo tantas bendiciones del Universo. Estoy agradecida por mi vida, por mi salud, por mi familia, por mis hijos, por mis ancestros y por las circunstancias de mi vida actual. Doy gracias por todo ello; por el pasado, por el ahora y por todo lo milagroso y mágico que aún está por venir.

Estoy agradecida de estar viva jugando en este increíble patio de recreo que llamamos planeta tierra. Doy gracias por la belleza, doy gracias por la magia de despertar y ver a los pájaros bañarse en el agua de la fuente frente a mi casa. Doy gracias por todas y cada una de las flores cuyos capullos decoran mi jardín. Me encanta ver la danza que realiza cada mariposa mientras visita esas flores dignas. Doy gracias por la magnificencia que siento dentro de mí. Doy gracias por esta conexión profunda y permanente con lo Divino que está conmigo las 24 horas del día, los 7 días de la semana y nunca disminuye. Siempre está abierto y disponible, incluso en los días en que estoy cansada o enferma, e incluso en los días en que no hice lo correcto. Esos días en que mi mente está llena de nubes oscuras, incluso entonces sé que esta apertura universal que siempre está disponible y que nunca se oscurece está ahí presente. Siempre está brillando como una guía y empujándome hacia mi mejor vida. Simplemente espera mi elección.

Al escuchar la idea de que todos somos uno y abrazar la fluidez de la energía danzante de la unidad, permito que mi mente se una a esa energía de perfección y finalización. Sé que todo está bien, aunque hay tantas historias locas que se centran en el caos de nuestro mundo. Sé que vivir en esta turbulencia mágica significa que todas las cosas que ya no sirven para mi crecimiento están siendo limpiadas y en su lugar puede aparecer más de lo que es hermoso. Ayudó a cambiar el mundo caótico con mi propio surgimiento.

Sé que vivir en cuestión (y fuera de la suposición) abre las puertas a infinitas posibilidades. Elijo ver el caos, la turbulencia y el miedo como los pasos de la humanidad hacia la gloriosa posibilidad de emerger como el nuevo y mejorado Ser humano, uno que es resistente, tranquilo y sereno. ¡Esta idea es una de las cuales estoy más agradecida!

Sabiendo que la Gratitud, la Magia y la posibilidad son la atmósfera y el reino de este surgimiento, me planto en la turbulencia de este cambio y doy gracias por todas mis bendiciones.

Entonces, aquí levanto mi voz para decir ¡GRACIAS por la increíble bendición que eres en mi vida! Me siento muy honrado por su amistad y tu amor y la oportunidad de participar de esta energía de unidad, amor y acción de gracias. Doy la bienvenida a la temporada de la generosidad de espíritu. Estoy abierta cada vez más a esta increíble vida. ¡¡¡Estoy muy agradecida!!!
¡Feliz día de acción de gracias!

Are you open at the top?

What are you looking to create in your life?

There have been times in my life when I have stood at the crossroads and looked back, and I began to question if my life has ever been a life of contribution, or have I been just pretending? I questioned my contributions and wondered if I’m living the results of what that might have been – or have I, in fact, been a “taker” most of my life. The gift of the question allows me the opportunity to decide to choose again. What do I want to create this time around? As I understand it, creation starts with choice, and I can always choose again. My potential becomes an outcome of my choice as long as I am able to stop all judgment and live in allowance of other people’s choices.

As I ponder the outcomes of what exists, as opposed to what I thought they should have been; I take a look out the window and see the most beautiful flower in full bloom. In that moment I realized that the meaning in my life has been one of constant appreciation for the magnificence around me. I revel in the natural beauty that I get to appreciate all around me as I have matured. What I am all about and what gives meaning to my life now is so different from the many hectic years that I spent busily doing so I could make ends meet while I was raising my family… myself included. Is life really meant to be about living a life of struggle and diminishing my connection with the source of everything that I am? I have always gravitated towards meditation, prayer and maintaining this connection open so I can be the best me that I can possibly be. Despite this long practice I have come to understand that in order to receive I have to be open to it or it just doesn’t work. I have to choose to contribute as a source of love in my surroundings. This is the part where choice enters as our universal gift, we were given free choice

I have been on a trajectory of self discovery for a long time and as I have grown into more of me. I recognized the areas in life that I wanted to improve for myself, and along the way I left behind friends with whom I was so comfortable with during times when I was contributing to a state of negativity and self deprecation. I participated in the energy and felt justified in complaining about something or someone in my life. Now it seems that the more silence I have in my life the more I am able to reconnect with the more expansive part of me. In that expansion I recognize that no matter what happens, it is always for the best. While I still go through my occasional bouts of self doubt, negativity and darkness, the periods in this space have become shorter and more productive. I am now more capable of being open to what is being reflected back, though at the moment I may not be able to change it. It seems to me that the results are always positive and I am left pointed in the direction of something greater than I ever recognized before. Even if it is just the recognition of the reality of this, my abundant life; regardless of whether I appear to be moving in the wrong direction, there seems to be a recognizable magical strand which always connects to my higher source and pulls me back to my path.

Predominantly it is a feeling of immense gratitude for my life, and for my children, and for finding my way to a conscious relationship in which there is so much love and appreciation for each other. We are never convinced of the need to change the other person in order to feel happy, and because we understand that we are here to walk together in partnership, we happily walk side by side holding each other’s hand.

As this is the month of gratitude, I ask again, what are you looking to create in your life? Are you living in gratitude for every moment that takes your breath away or are you just waiting to see what’s going to happen next? In looking back I have learned to be grateful for every moment and to appreciate what is unfolding before me, while learning to also love myself and being grateful that I’ve made it this far.
