The Transformational Power of Gratitude

Now is the time to enter the chrysalis.  Take with you all of your experiences, your childhood, your karma, any lessons you believe you are here to learn.  Take it all with you. 

Now let spirit guide you, let spirit weave the protective, silken cocoon and then fill it with gratitude.  Then let the miracle occur.  Let the old self dissolve away, leaving only a grateful memory of what was, now transformed into a deep and compassionate understanding.  Let the gratitude become who you are, the gratitude for all that has been, all that you are, and all that you are now ready to become.

Immerse yourself in gratitude, for this is the liquid that will dissolve the old hurts and ways of being.  This is the healer, this gratitude, deep loving gratitude for life itself.  Let everything dissolve and dissolve into gratitude until you are only your most essential self.

All the past is dissolved.  All the pain, the hurts, the old habits and ways of being, all dissolved.  And you feel now your soul entering you and building your form anew, building and evolving, shaping you into what you are meant to be, the form of your truth, the form of those deep, deep dreams you dared not even express aloud, all of this is part of the emerging form.

And know that it is all related, that the experiences you have had gave you the strength to become what you are truly here to become.  The relationships have taught you what you need to know.  All that went before has given you the perfect ingredients to form the life you are meant to live, expressing your greatness and expanding into your glory.

And then, when you have reshaped yourself into your truth, begin to chew your way out of the cocoon.  Gnaw your way through the fears and doubts that no longer serve any purpose.  Feel how spirit has removed them from you and put them into the casing that is now ready to be discarded, for once and for all.  Feel how you can push through the olds ways of being and begin to see the light of day.

The sun is shining brightly as you emerge, new and shimmering with the moisture of birth and newness, emerging now in your full glory.

Ah, yes, feel the sun.  Feel the warmth as you spread your wings wide.

See and know and feel your beauty.  The furry caterpillar is no more.  This old form was necessary, but it is no more.  You have crawled slowly and painfully through the early stages of life, gone into the cocoon and transformed yourself through love and gratitude, and now you emerge in full beauty and glory, your greatness shining brightly as you stretch out your gorgeous wings and begin to fly.

Ah, yes, feel how effortless it is now to fly.  The breeze lifts you higher and higher as you soar up into the sky, showing your glory to the world.

Yes, this is the moment.  This is the time.  And all of it, the caterpillar, the chrysalis transformation and the struggle to emerge in newness, all of it is a part of the journey to make you into the gorgeous creature that you truly are, free and riding the wind.

The struggle to emerge, reminds me of the story of a scientist who loved Emperor Moths. He found a catapillar and enjoyed watching it go through the changes. Finally the time for it to emerge from the caccoon arrived and he watched it struggle to exhaustion, rest and struggle some more. He felt sorry for the moth having to struggle so hard, and finally he took a small pair of sicccors and cut away part of the caccoon. The moth emerged, but it was severly deformed and died. He learned that it was in the process of the struggle to emerge from the caccoon that put the fininshing touches on the moth's development. I think my struggle to emerge is going to take longer than everyone elses :). I still have deformities that keep me from feeling the gratitude to the extent that I should.

Thank you Debbie, I think gratitude is being able to find joy in the simple wonders. A beautiful sunset, a bird taking off to fly, the nonsense in a playful dog, a simple flower growing in a field all alone, so brave and persevering, the sound of the wind through a pine tree, the touch of the breeze on your face, a beautiful song, the soft grass under your feet, the silence at dusk, the dance of nature. As I told a friend, nature rolls out her beauty, like a map, and points the way to God. If we can be still in our heart and let the stresses of the world find there proper place, we can learn to find joy in this world. We do not need expensive entertainment or distractions. God gives us what we really need without our effort, all we have to do is let go of our ego and make the divine connection with Him. True love and peace are really not things we will find in this world, those who seek will find, but you really have to want it enough to let go of the illusion.
