My heart sings today as I got my organic turkey without ordering, I am a bit unprepared at times. Things always work out yet in what appears through a chaotic rhythm. Chaos has order in it as you sit looking long enough. All chaos rebirths to order at some point. I was grateful that my chaotic rhythm synced up to have turkey! It made me shine!
I realized, as most with this "cup half full" attitude, I celebrate the simple things. We gear ourselves up at the smallest of gifts of life going well. Many often save celebration for the big things yet the small ones can ride you through each day. Having an attitude of gratitude and celebration helps me deal with all the mess of life. Life is messy regardless. To have this openness to look for the right in the small, finds a joy spark you can ride.
In the midst of great crisis, something inside of me can see joy. I can radar in on the good that occurs. I was at the grocery store and asked if there was a space for cards. It involved getting manager, blah blah so I just told the girl next time. She loved my card about the podcast and water. She asked to keep it! Another wave of joy came upon me for a good interaction.
My view of the mountains can do it, my favorite songs on the radio, the kindness others offer in a smile, the happy neighbor wave, even my flinging of things that shatter brings me to giggle. We have to reset our radar especially with all the news. No looking for signs of the scary, the fearful and bad. We need to step away and look for the simple goodness of daily events.
I inspire you this holiday to really revel in the simple things. Our lives have been simplified and there is goodness in that. Less of everything has been nice. Less rat race, more true interaction and savoring of what we have. Even reviewing what we want as times have changed. The joy of this simplicity you can ride and spread its deliciousness!
Yes I have many tough, hard, failing times in life too. Far more than I share. Yet my thankfulness for what turns out right supports me tremendously! Preserving the lesson makes the hard have purpose and that will eventually lead me back to gratitude. Really work this word. We all know this. Yet when we interact, create energy and really sink into this wave, life changes immediately. It is a most powerful tool and why we have a day to celebrate!
Have a blessing filled Thanksgiving!

This fall has really been a review of what do I need. We have such news and ideas of fear, lack and uncertainty. In a time as no other, I think to be clear on what I need to feel safe, express myself fully and finding simple joy is paramount!
We all need the security of money. The essence of this really is a security that all will end well and in our favor. Feeling that I have what I need each day to take care of myself in whatever way seems appropriate. The essence of security is that we have enough to thrive. Many at this time are scrambling to manage this with all the shifts. I, too, finding innovative ways to attract what I need. I remind myself the within /without law. If I feel the essence of being supported, taken care of by the world and my own activities working, I can then draw in the opportunities outside myself.
I learned when getting my Masters in Spiritual Science, about feeling the essence of the things you desire. Not thinking them but feeling the accomplishment, like an athlete who visualizes the win. Win in your fantasies! So we conjure the feelings of being content, supported, safe, secure, creative, innovative, loving and on and on. We see our NEEDS getting fulfilled. In fact we are celebrating it.
First you decide what you need. Then feel the essence of it for a practice and watch is come to you. It doesn't just take a second a day. This is a practice in creating the joy of life you want. I have alarms that reset to gratitude and visualization for a few minutes 6 times a day. I stop what is happening if I can, and feel this essence of whatever I am wanting. It naturally turns to gratitude I noticed. Very powerful way to bring in what you desire if it yours to be had.
If we all really refined what we need and the feeling that gives us with our imagination rather than using it for all the doubtful things we envision or worries, we could shift our world. We have spent our lives finding ways to get what we need and so far it has worked. If it shifts or crazy things come along, we adjust and keep going. So far we have made it. We are still alive and breathing. We have successfully weathered some storms. The key I believe is in knowing what you need to be safe, secure and comfortable to be yourself. It sounds simple yet you must keep answering this question through out life.
With the answer and the visualization or feeling of having it sprinkled through your day, you practice that vibration in your body. Most of us don't know what or how that feels. Many have never felt safe in their life. So it is not a one and done deal. It is a journey of embodying what you say you want. Give time to whatever process comes up as you do this and continuing with it. This has been an anchor for me through this time. I am not always so sure what that is being in a new place and creating innovatively. I keep remembering what I want and adjusting it to what I need and what is happening. I make certain I FEEL deeply what the essence, the essential nature of that need is!!
Powerful Practice to try daily!
