Gratitude Helps You Access Your Power

Amma Talks about the Power of Gratitude and How Gratitude Affects the World

The other day I was sitting here looLive in Gratitudeking at the Red Rocks of Sedona filled with gratitude and thinking how blessed I am to be here.

Due to a collection of circumstances, I was not with anyone from my family for Thanksgiving… except for Frick and Frack. They spent the day sleeping next to me and I did some writing and watched some football.

Several family members called and I vicariously enjoyed my sister’s family on Facebook.

I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this time the United States was focused on giving thanks for all our blessings than to share Amma with you.

Our visit with Amma was this morning, the Friday after Thanksgiving.

You may download the call by right clicking on the link.  Enjoy!

Here’s the link to download.

In the call Amma talks about how we access our personal power through our choices. We may choose to be filled with gratitude and appreciation or we can choose to be mired in the fears society seems to want us to experience.

Amma also explained something I hadn’t heard about the Law of Attraction. She told us the Law of Attraction wasn’t so much about attracting things to us, but about tuning our frequency into that we wish to have in our life. It’s like turning your television to the channel you want to watch. When we are in a place of gratitude we are tuned into the frequencies of love and all the variations of love (joy, contentment, delight are examples). When we are in a place of fear that is what we are tuned into.

All manner of vibrations surround us just as all the television channels are in the air. We get to choose which vibration we want in our lives by being the vibration we want.

The last part of our time together, Amma took us through some Encodement and healing work to align our energy to gratitude and thankfullness. She also guided us for healing in relationship with ourselves and with others.

Enjoy the recording. Sit back and allow the her words to wash over you. She gives us words of Love. Allow the Love into your life.

Many blessings

The Spirituality of Setting Goals

When January 1 rolls around people feel that they can begin again. They set New Year’s resolutions hoping that, this year, they’ll be able to accomplish what they’ve always wanted to accomplish.

Before you set these goals, and possibly set yourself up for failure, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is this something you really want to do or something others are telling you you should do?
  • Is this desire coming from deep within yourself or is it coming from a sense of guilt or shame?
  • When you think about this goal do you feel energized and excited or do you feel oppressed and heavy?

Every day you are presented with new choices for your life. These choices are only visible if you live your life consciously, aware of the many possibilities you have before you. Every step you take contains the option of movement in a 360° range. The possibilities are endless.

Not all the opportunities presented to you in your life are appropriate for you. Your job is to discern what  possibilities available are those that match the motivation deep within your heart.

On a spiritual level it does not matter if you lose weight. True, your weight can determine how you feel on a physical and emotional level. This, however, is not as important as how much you love and appreciate yourself. If your love and appreciation of yourself is based upon how you look then there is healing to be done.

Spiritually it doesn’t matter how much money you make. Finances can have a direct effect upon how you view yourself and your sense of security in this world. What matters on a spiritual level is the gratitude you experience and have for wherever you are in your financial life. If you cannot experience gratitude for where you are now, no matter what your financial situation, then there is healing to be done.

The quality of your relationships has more to do with spirituality than any other aspect of your life. Spirituality is based upon your experience of connectedness to the world around you, physical and nonphysical. When you feel disconnected you are not in the flow of love. This flow has nothing to do with whether or not you have a life partner. This flow has everything to do with the love you have for yourself.

With these brief comments in mind reevaluate what goals you wish to set for 2014. Choose the possibilities which rise from deep within you. If you feel burdened by your selection then you need to go deeper within and  eliminate that which is causing the heaviness.

The best resolution for you may be to engage in healing of what ever the source of the heaviness is. It doesn’t matter how you choose to do this or what method of healing you use. It only matters to do it. And it is significant only to you because you are held in the love of God no matter what your choice is.

Live your life in the freedom of Love. Discover what it truly is you wish to happen in this life of yours. When you are filled with joy and gratitude you will have found what is known as “The Pearl of Great Price.”

The possibilities are endless and you are the one who has the power to make them happen for you. No matter what it is you want there is assistance and guidance for you on both the spiritual and the physical level. You have to take advantage of it.

Know Where You Stand

During the heat of a political election Amma made a comment. She told us to know where we stand. It didn’t matter where we stood just as long as we stood somewhere and knew where that was.

She was talking about knowing our values, knowing what was important to us, knowing who we are.

There are very few people who don’t care what anyone thinks. Some may say they don’t, but their anger and reactions to others who think differently belie their words. If you truly don’t care what others think then you will be at peace with whatever they think. You might not even notice what they think. You will live your life the way you wish to live it no matter what is happening.

When Amma talks about knowing where you stand, she wants you to be yourself, not to change who you are depending upon the person and the situation. That doesn’t mean you don’t evolve and, perhaps, change your mind. A mature person will change his or her perspective as s/he gathers more wisdom and knowledge.

You can’t change your perspective if you don’t know what that perspective is. What do you believe in? Are you willing to stand up for those beliefs? If so, how?

The conundrum is that how you stand up for your beliefs and how someone else thinks you should do so can be very different. Some people will say you must write letters, sign petitions, protest. Others will tell you to be gentle in your words and actions.

People will tell you what they think you should be doing based upon what they believe about themselves. You get to make your own decision.

Amma only loves. She loves unconditionally. You don’t have to change yourself into someone else for her to keep loving you. Whether you stay true to yourself or follow what someone else says you should do, she’ll still love you.

That’s the way unconditional love is. It’s unconditional.

If you choose to model yourself after Amma you, and I, have a tough task. She is Unconditional Love. She is Love Itself. (Whatever name you give God is Love Itself.)

Speaking for myself… if someone betrays me I have a difficult task before me if I am to model myself after Amma. I am to continue to have unconditional positive regard for that person. My love for them would not change one iota (the ninth letter of the Greek alphabet and the smallest).

Oh my, how do I do that? How do I keep that love for another after s/he hurt me terribly? That is a struggle, isn’t it?

This life is an adventure in discovering how we can be the Love We Are. It is a discovery in learning to forgive and then learning there is nothing to forgive.

It is a discovery in accepting that we have hurt others as much as we have been hurt by others… and growing from that discovery… then forgiving ourselves… then knowing we played our part well in life.

Hurting and being hurt is unavoidable. It what we do after it that is in our control.

If you know you want to model yourself after Unconditional Love, then you form and fashion your thoughts and feelings on that model.

Know where you stand. Just know not everyone will stand in the same place. No matter where they stand, they were made from the same Love as you.
