Ten Days Of Gratitude

on November 17, 2014

Make it a Habitude of Gratitude!

Unity in Gender Diversity invites you to enjoy Ten Days of Gratitude by stating one thing you are grateful for each day till Thanksgiving.  This starts on the 18th and runs until Nov. 27th.  Of course every day is a day for gratitude, but for those of us who have not developed this habit, now is a perfect opportunity to do just that!

The secret to powerful gratitudes and prayers is both intention and emotion.  So the object is to feel your gratitudes as deeply as you can, to contemplate their meaning and purpose, and to imagine connecting to Source, (gratitude comes thru you not from you, so we are simply owning it).

Grace and Gratitude are two traits I have been developing all my life and I suspect you have also been developing these muscles maybe without even noticing!  Without Gratitude life simply stops working.  It is the grease that keeps the engine running. Grace is the way in which we do this.  I invite you to test this right now over the next 10 days!  Not only does what you focus on grow, but that which you are grateful for is attracted to you.  “Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.” Sarah Ban Breathnach

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I feel gratitude is so important and because I feel that I am pretty good at it.  The food is not bad either <G>.  The Native American’s taught us one important thing about this holiday so please consider the following.

The food you eat is a gift from Great Spirit (even if you paid for it).  Life is being transformed to a Higher form by us eating it and giving our grace to the animal or plant that is offering it up.  We always thank the animal or plant for giving its life so that we may live.  It is a thought and a feeling that becomes a habit every time you consume something.  “Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.” Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear.

Thanksgiving is a daily event, not just one day a year!  Of course holidays are about family and friends sharing gratitude for each other as well as all their other gifts.  In this busy world of diverse business and world travel many families no longer live in close proximity so the holidays are an excuse to come together.  As far as gratitude and grace, well these are daily practices which we are reminded of and celebrate at least once a year at Thanksgiving.

To participate in the Ten Days of Gratitude, go to my facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/sequoiaelisabeth  and make your comments on my posts, one each day starting on the 18th.  I will also be posting on my website, or if you prefer just choose one thing you are grateful for each day to meditate on, write it down, and share it!  With practice it becomes a daily habit and leads to a more joyous life.
