I grew up without Thanksgiving. In fact I did not know what it was until I was in my late 30s. Now that I live in the USA I enjoy all the holidays, major and minor, and the way most people throw themselves into the festivities wholeheartedly but my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.
I give thanks every day and I like to see my favorite spiritual practice turned into a National Holiday!
As a Buddhist I learned to give thanks for a precious human life. As a Mom as I gave thanks for health, food, shelter, comfort, support, abundance. As an immigrant to two different countries in this lifetime I gave thanks for being made welcome, for support, for friendship and for opportunities. As an energy healer I give thanks for the amazing wonderful people who share their hearts desires with me. Everyday I am grateful for love. The list is truly endless.
I give thanks every day
- out of deep and innate sense of awe for the Divine that provides for me and my family
- but also out of a deep sense of what’s good for me. Because when I am grateful for what I already have, I feel good and I raise my vibration so I attract more of what I have. That’s basic Law of Attraction stuff.
What do you give thanks for?
