I believe there are moments when clarity comes through and we wake up. This has been a year filled with those moments for me, so I chose to return to my sometimes-home of Arizona! It's the right place for me to be.
Gratitude got me here.
The trick is that you have to be grateful for everything, not just the parts of life that are easy to like. Once you get to the point where you can be grateful for even the struggles and annoying things—that's where the good starts to flow.
I hope you stop to count your blessings this week.
Moving across the country is hard work that took 6 months of planning. I'm grateful more didn't go wrong!
As Reiki practitioners, we are taught to practice gratitude daily. It's 1/5 of the Reiki Precepts, after all:
What does it mean to practice gratitude?
Practicing gratitude is more than merely rattling off a list of 'things to be grateful for'—although that does help. It's a starting point.
But to experience gratitude throughout our lives, we have to practice it.
So what does that mean?
- It means practicing gratitude even when we're cranky and far from feeling grateful.
- It's seeing beyond 'the list' of material things and making sure we count people, health, and experiences.
- It's deepening this practice over time by taking it from a 'list of precepts' into an attitude, feeling, and belief.
- It's making gratitude a state of being and finding out what a life of gratitude looks like.
- Yes, it's counting every blessing and counting everything as a blessing.
That last one is hard. But I know the challenges life has thrown at me were in my best interests. Even when there are hardships, gratitude can be found.
