For your consideration….

For me there is just so much to today’s message. I often mention how the messages come into me, how I recognize them. Sometimes they are easy. Sometimes I really have to think about them and wait for more. Sometimes I just like to sit with them by myself for a bit before I share.

I knew immediately where today’s message came from. It is from a book I am reading. I love to read. I read every day. I read all kinds of books including new authors. I often download free books on my Kindle. I HOPE to find and support new authors and HOPE that people will soon do the same for me.

I am reading one of them right now. It is called The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon. One of the main characters learned from her family and in turn tries to teach her troubled friend about rules of gratitude. The rule is you can list 5 complaints. But as soon as you do you have to list 5 things you have and are grateful for.

I immediately thought, “I do this every day in the blog. I list 4 things that I am grateful for. By design they are things big and small.” Yes, that is an example but it the process is what our message is about today. We are energy beings. We are manifestors. The Universe responds in kind to our thoughts. We get more of the same. So the process is important.

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you’ll never have enough.” Oprah Winfrey

We cannot stop ourselves from complaining, expressing what makes us unhappy, angry etc. It is good to get things “off our chest.” But it is  important to then turn that negative energy around. We do that with gratitude. It doesn’t have to be big things. There is no judgment. It is just important to replace the negative with the positive. We can all list things that we are blessed with. Each of us has blessings to be grateful for.

“It is not happiness that brings us gratitude. It is gratitude that brings us happiness.” unknown

Also, today we are reminded that tonight is 2017’s Super Moon. This is a very powerful moon. It’s energies will be magnified but they will be held back from us because at this very same time Mercury is going into retrograde. So we may feel conflicted. We may feel like we can and do make big strides forward only to feel like we are forced to take some back. This moon is also about “TRUTH. ” It is about truth… with ourselves and others. Don’t be afraid. Let it rise to the surface and trust that it is for your highest good and the highest good of all.”

It is a good thing. Remember, that truth comes from our authentic self, not our ego. If we let our ego do our talking during this time, we can expect a fallout.

Finally, remember that this moon is the closing of the year of “New beginnings.” Living day-to-day does not always give us the best vantage point to see how far we have come. Take a few minutes and spend it with this moon tonight and take an elevated view on just how far you have come this year. Reflect on your lessons and growth. Reflect on the perfect being that you are and always will be.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…..

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.


-Remember to change our energy around by listing something we are grateful for every complaint we think our say.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
