Staying in Gratitude No Matter What...
Elliot has been challenged with a health issue for the past five weeks. While recuperating he read a little book on Gratitude. Last night he asked me if I knew why it was important to be thankful for everything, both the good and the bad? He went on to say that one of the reasons is that when you are in gratitude, you are aligning with the Light of God and are not subject to man's laws. You are attuning to miracle mindedness which transcends the chaos of the world. His comment reminded me of that phrase in A Course in Miracles, "All things work together for good except in the ego's judgment."
Elliot affirmed that because every experience is a lesson for good, even though it may not feel good, it can be used for good, for our soul's growth, if we can accept what is and be grateful for the lesson. During times of crisis our attitudes and behaviors can either make us or break us. If we remain strong in faith giving thanks that the presence of God in us is more powerful than this appearance, we can move through the particular test more quickly.
I've used this formula before and it works. Whenever I began to complain, I tried to catch myself and give thanks by saying, "I can hardly wait to see the good that is going to come from this." The results were pretty amazing proving that our thoughts are not idle but powerful energy sources.
You may also want to call on Archangel Raphael and bathe in his golden radiance, showering every cell and atom of your body. These are times of transformation where we are given an opportunity to slough off old long standing issues and translate them into more Light.
Wishing you a joyful day with your Angels.
