Inspiration for the Week - Gratitude Opens the Door

The Gabriel Message card for this week:

Gratitude opens the door to feeling God's Love.

When we are feeling God's Love there is a Rightness inside, a sense that All Is Well. Once we have had that feeling, we long with every fiber of our being to experience it again, because it is our true state.

When we feel empty and cut off, it is hard to believe that the feeling of empowered love is still inside us. It may even seem that we pray in vain to experience a feeling of being loved and at home in ourselves again.

You have heard the expression "act as if," as a way to change our patterns of behavior. I have discovered that prayers of Gratitude have the same power. They invite the miraculous flow of Supreme Consciousness to act in our lives. These powerful prayer thoughts create higher frequencies in our energy fields and allow us to open into new levels of consciousness in seemingly miraculous ways. When we are having an experience of darkness, we do not have to proclaim the highest states of what we ultimately desire in order to shift our awareness. We only have to choose to observe what we can acknowledge as Truth so we can gracefully shift our feelings. Ease and Grace are big components of what I want to experience.

In times of darkness Gratitude becomes the way back home. Sometimes it takes some effort and I need to find something in Nature to inspire me. When I look at one of my green plants or a beautiful bouquet of flowers, I can more easily thank God for what is present in and around me.

This morning I decided to let the Universe show me things I can be grateful for. Here is a list of what changed my consciousness in one hour.

~Deeply inspiring music

~Books that speak to my heart of truth and love

~Breathing exercises that soothe me

~Green outside my window and the beauty of the sanctuary I have created for myself

~A friend that called for a brisk walk in the fresh autumn air

~People that send me inspiring messages on the internet, so I can choose to read that which uplifts me instead of what scares and confuses me.

Within a very short amount of time, I felt completely different than when I first began my day. I was given a personal experience of how important it is that I open to ways that touch my heart and allow an attitude of gratitude to overtake my consciousness. It's easier sometimes to let myself sink into old habits that do not nourish me. It seems like I have even outgrown activities that used to make me feel good. So at times, a bit of extra effort is necessary to uplift and nurture myself.

We are in a powerfully transformative time in which small efforts to change the way we feel pay off in big dividends in body, mind and emotional states. We are the Way-showers. We are creating a new life on Earth as we make choices that serve our highest good. This time is a completely different atmosphere in which to live, breathe and have gratitude. Changes can happen very quickly now in the dimensional timelines we are learning to integrate. Here is my prayer today for changing into attitude of Gratitude.

Divine Presence,

Thank you for the gift of being alive in this new era of consciousness on Earth. Thank you for helping me know that all I am feeling and experiencing is transmuting the consciousness on the planet for all humanity. Thank you for helping me to find more and more things that I can be grateful for. Thank you for the Divine Love that flows in and through me at all times and for assisting me to experience that. Thank you for making me aware that All is Really Well ~ Now and Always.

Thank you God. And so it is.

As I was editing this page, I received the following notice from the gentle folks at GoGratitude. We have so much to be grateful to Dr. Emoto for bringing into our awareness.

The Gabriel Messages #34

Gratitude opens the door to feeling God's Love.

Dear One,

When you feel God's love, there is a sense of Peace and Harmony within you. This feeling allows you to step back from the drama in your life, and to let the love of God flow into every situation. When Divine Love is flowing freely through you, miraculous healing occurs.

There is one place where you can always go to feel God's love, and that is in your heart. Gratitude is the attitude that will take you into your heart. It does not matter if you see nothing in your life for which to feel grateful, just the act of putting your hand on your heart and giving thanks opens a door in your heart to allow God's love in.

When there's nothing else, you can give thanks for just being alive. It is a gift to be in a human body, which is a miraculous instrument. You can give thanks that your heart beats, that your breathing occurs and digestive processes continue without your conscious direction.

If your life feels like a constant struggle, you can give thanks for the lessons you are learning. On the other side of the struggle is freedom. You can give thanks in advance for such freedom.

Prayer shifts our perspective so we can see a larger picture of what is actually going on in our lives. Prayers of gratitude are very powerful, and stimulate an increased flow of God's energy into every situation. This energy can create miraculous change for good. It may take a little effort to find something to be grateful for when you are feeling down, but it will create a beautiful shift in your mind when you do so. This shift is the doorway into a new awareness of the greater truth in your life.

The greater truth is that you are never alone and that you are here on Earth to remember your connection to the Divine Presence in your life. You are meant to live a happy, abundant life with deep fulfillment. In order to do this, it is necessary to step out of the problems life presents and into the flow of God's love, which will bring Creative Solutions. It is as if you step through a doorway into right action, trust, and loving awareness. Gratitude is the key that unlocks the door to all you are seeking — a simple thing that brings miracles into your life. Remember:

Gratitude opens the door to feeling God's Love.
