We have been training ourselves to be grateful, to feel gratitude within our hearts. When we feel stress, are spinning out…this approach has been ratified by Oprah and E. Tolle of late (wahoo! for making this mainstream). Many of us taught by Jon Young know that being in a state of gratitude changes the brainwaves that we are broadcasting. This change in brainwaves actually is picked up by the birds and other animals in nature; observant people will notice a change in bird sounds and animal movement in response to these changes (this is the basis for my class “Bird Sounds, Healing Sounds” offered again in June 2009).
The spirits have been prompting us to go further than gratitude–to take stock, asking what internal, innate resources do I have that I call on? What gifts and skills do I have, that I can track through my life, that serve me in this life, no matter what. These are resources that transcend all external environmental conditions–and are especially important to be grounded in in these shifting times.
In asking this question, we go beyond being grateful for our lives, towards actually tracking some of the “mechanisms of well-being”, which have and will continue to support us in our walk. At these challenging times, when we are wondering about our prosperity, these resources will continue to be the foundation that we can stand on.
So if you are a journeyer, set a simple altar or lay before the one you have already set up. Call in your helping spirits. Ask for your spirit teacher or power animal to guide you on a “museum tour” of your gifts and skills and talents, which form the bedrock, the pool of innate resources that you can continue to call on. Ask them to show you new doorways into which this pool of resources flows for new opportunities for prosperity to grow.
If you are a meditator, you can cast this intention as you sit in meditation.
ask to be taken on a “museum tour” of your gifts and skills and talents, which form the bedrock, the pool of innate resources that you can continue to call on. Ask to be shown new doorways into which this pool of resources flows for new opportunities for prosperity to grow.
I would love it if you can report back anything that may unfold from this…
