Dear ones in a world that appears to have become overrun with disasters it’s important to look at what you’ve already accomplished and what you’re in the process of creating. When you engage in the act of giving thanks as opposed to the complaint, that’s it’s not enough, you align yourself with Source and begin bringing more love into the world.
However, before you begin judging the people who say there isn’t enough or start berating yourselves for the times when you, too, fell victim to that thinking stop and realize that you were saying that because you believed it to be true. Next, take a look at the life you’re creating by expressing gratitude for all that you have and all that is yet to be. Being ungrateful or believing there wasn’t enough was the normal or conditioned response to lack and fear. However, being grateful for all that you have has become your new way of thinking and believing and indicates that your belief has changed from fear to love. You now feel safe and loved, cared for and protected because you understand that God is good and you are a part of God. If you’re a part of God and God is good, you are, therefore, good, worthy and deserving. You have stepped out of the, “Gotta get them before they get me mindset” and into the “Because I am supported, loved and cared for, I am easily able to extend love and caring to others.” You’re now beginning to spend more time feeling good rather than feeling bad so expressing your gratitude for the good in your life is natural.
Now let’s look at what occurs first in the heart and then proceeds to the mind when you allow your focus to be on all that’s right and good with your world instead of what’s dark or dangerous. First, when the heart, which is the largest energetic field in the body, is fed positive energy, it begins to expand outward. However, the negativity, limiting beliefs and past trauma that you’ve been exposed to have not left your energetic field unless you have done something to clear them, so the heart is trying to process both states at the same time. Understand that everything you’ve experienced both good and bad has created an imprint that is continuing to impact you. In order to begin expressing gratitude for all that you have, you must begin actively seeking that which is going well. As you focus on all that is going well you lessen the ability of the negativity to be impactful in your life. The negative will have less of a hold on your life and the positive will be claiming more of a place in your energetic field. As the positive expands, the heart begins to feel more secure, less panicked and more able to look for and find the good. Then you’ll begin filling the energetic field with that good and the heart which dictates to the sub-conscious will begin sending out the message, “We are safe and loved. We are secure. We can relax and it’s safe to trust that our needs will be met.” When you come from the place that everything you require will come at the perfect time, the anxiety that you used to hold about what may be coming next is no longer present and you now have access to the present moment, the now, which is your only point of existence. In the past, when your heart was closed and clouded by all of the negativity that bombarded it, you had no choice but to live with some level of anxiety. The past reminded you of everything that had gone wrong and the future hinted at everything that could go wrong, so your present, which was rarely visited, was seen as a place where you were unsafe and wrong things would certainly happen.
As you consistently replace the what’s wrong with what’s right, what feels good and what you can be grateful for, you open automatically to receive more of God’s guidance. Guidance from Source never ceases. Their unconditional love and support is always available to you but in order to receive and take advantage of this support, you must be in an open and receptive state and the heart must be free of limiting beliefs so there is an open channel through which these blessings may flow. As you concentrate on the good, that which caused hurt and pain in the past begins to have less of a hold and the channel to God widens and deepens allowing you to step more directly into the flow of unconditional love which is continuously outpouring. This flow is where you perceive with the heart that you are indeed safe, that you are indeed loved and that your needs will be met. Here you can relax and allow yourself to be.
As you enter more fully into the being state, as your heart releases the doubts and fears, the mind then becomes increasingly less clouded by thoughts of what you must be protected from. You move from the defensive posture of what’s coming next to hurt me, threaten me or upset me into the how can I be present at the right place and time to take advantage of the good that’s here for me now. At this point, you’ve achieved a state of harmony or grace in which you exist in a state of bliss. The place in which you flow with what is instead of fight against what might be. This is the place where strife ends and existence becomes pure joy. It does not signify the end of your journey nor the end of your challenges. It is simply a state where everything you encounter can be met from a place of peace.
Many of you are now saying, “This is an impossible goal, an unattainable quest and a dream much longed for but never to be achieved.” But we say, learn to develop the habit of gratitude. Each day consciously look for the good in your life and put all of your attention upon that good. Talk about it, think about it, dwell upon it until there is room for nothing else in your energetic field. With your constant and active participation in all that is good, the good will gain a stronghold in your life and that which was painful will begin to slip away. Do not look for instant transformation, instead look for incremental signs of progress. Most of you have been practicing the habit of focusing on what’s wrong for the greater part of your lives. This habit will be deeply ingrained in the psyche and will not yield to sporadic attempts to insert gratitude. You must apply gratitude regularly for an extended period of time until it becomes your new habit, before you will be able to relax and expect this new habit of gratitude to operate unconsciously and with little effort on your part. Therefore, we advise that you invest all of your energy into firmly establishing the habit of looking for and being grateful for the good. Keep actively pursuing this habit until it becomes even more deeply ingrained than the habit of focusing on the negative. It’s only when your attention automatically flows to what’s right instead of what’s wrong that you’ll know that you have successfully implemented a new, more life-affirming habit.
Therefore, dear ones, stay vigilant in your pursuit of goodness. Be on the alert for things for which you can express sincere gratitude and when you find them be enthusiastic in your expression of all that is good, all that is right and all that has brought you joy. Talk about it, think about it, dwell upon it and allow it to completely fill your energetic beingness. Do not be shy in expressing your joy in finding the good, be ecstatic. The more you become involved in the process of gratitude and the search for good, the more easily the good will flow to you and the more deeply you’ll be connected to Source. It is from within this connection that you’ll find your peace and you’ll know that you are safe and loved.
