GRAT ATTACK!


GRAT ATTACK!
“Attack of the Gratitudes” that is!

I was waiting for my kids in the car the other day, overhearing snippets of conversation passing me by outside.  Layoffs, “uncertain times,” so-n-so needs surgery, house hasn’t sold, Suzy needs tutoring, depression, worry, anxiety, “I’m just so tired” I heard someone say hopelessly….  

“So much worry and pain in the world, God,” I whispered.  I allowed my empathic senses to quietly take it all in and float on by.  “How do we heal it?”  “Gratitude…”  is what I heard in response.  “Sure, I know that.  But not everyone understands that energy and not everyone is in a space to just appreciate or even be patient when they feel so overwhelmed.  They are hurting.  They need help,” I said.  “Not them – you…”  I heard.  “But you got me on the gratitude circuit a long time ago.  What is it I’m not already doing? I know it all starts at home and within.  What is it you need me to do, God?  What is the step you are leading me to?”  “Not you – them!”  I heard.  And then the vision popped and opened up at once, pouring White Light over and through me.  At once I saw it all and knew exactly what I was to do.  And it made me giggle – so much FUN! 

I’m so excited to share with you the latest project Spirit has dropped into my lap!   

We all know the value that gratitude brings to all areas of life.  We increase value for what we receive when we make a point of expressing gratitude in return.  Of course, like all things, seeding this gratitude energy starts at home with us and our inner place of Being.  And there is much we do to change our lives just by changing our point of view.   

Now I would like to invite everyone to join me in a spiritual experiment – to take seeding the world with the benefits of gratitude to the next level.  This time through initiating a physical manifestation of positive healing via the act of gratitude, expressed in written form.  

In other words – write a letter and fill it with your expressed gratitude! 

All creation begins with thought.  Next comes the spoken word.  After that comes action and deed, including the written word.  Each level of creation is ever powerful in its ability to manifest physically and accentuated by the power of emotion and passion.  Let’s take our energy work to the next level as we see our communities in need of healing on so many levels:  financial, emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, fear, grief, apathy, hopelessness, etc..  All things can be healed and we can facilitate healing for others in all things.  

In this time of financial fear, and during this numerological year of incredible spiritual energy, I intend to focus on the good in my life caused by others.  Including those companies who have developed products that I really do appreciate.  I have a metaphysical philosophy about the health of companies and business being much like the health of humans.  After all, we supply those “entities” with life force energy.  Without love and positive experiences, humans suffer and fail to thrive.  When our negative experiences outweigh the positive, we become depressed and it becomes harder to remain in balance and make balanced choices.  It’s not to say that our own choices aren’t an intitial cause for what we experience.  But as we all know, the power of a kind word can do wondrous things, promote life altering change even, and sometimes prevent so much pain.   

Some of you may remember my favorite phrase “Take Joy!  Go and Infect Your World!”  In that spirit, I’ve decided to take my “Attack of the Gratitudes” to the next level.  I’m not just going to think it.  I’m not just going to say it.  I’m not even just going to email it.  I’m going to put it in physical form and write it, all the while filling it with love, healing, smiles and my gratitude – creating a physical and tangible form of the positive healing and loving energy I wish to pass on and “infect” my world with.   

Your mission should you choose to accept it:  Look around your life at the things and the people that you honestly appreciate.  Make sure it’s something your heart is really in.  And be creative!  For instance – I absolutely love my dishwasher.  I really do!  It’s a great model and makes my life so much easier!  I plan to write the company and let them know how much of a positive difference this dishwasher has made in my family’s life. 

How about you?

  1. I have to say that today was a huge gratitude day for me, and a day of realizing – again – that not everything that *seems* bad *is* bad.

    I have two jobs; a full time job, and a part time job. Last week I discovered that the hours at my part time job had been cut drastically – from a norm of about 20-36 hours a week, down to a week with no hours at all, and only a few hours here and there for the rest of April. Needless to say, I was having a hard time trusting the Universe on this one, and I was none-too-happy about it.

    Well, today, I had a very clear picture of why I didn’t have any hours this week: My boss at my primary job is out of town this week, and as second in command, I had to cover his job as well as my own. Today was one of those days that you hope doesn’t happen too often. We were absolutely swamped! And, thanks to not having any hours at my part time job, an already stressful situation was turned into a grateful situation instead. I cannot tell you how many times I said “Thank you!” to the Universe today for having my back, as a friend of mine would say :-). It worked out for the best in the end, and tonight, when I was working late, at least I wasn’t grumbling about not having any hours, or worrying about how late I was going to have to stay up making up for the hours at my part time job, had I been scheduled, as I used to be. Everything worked out *beautifully*, and that’s what’s going in my gratitude journal tonight and thanks for giving me an opportunity to share :-).

  2. That’s a great story and a great example Brianna! Thanks so much for sharing it!
