My Message of the Month
Thanks – to – Giving!
The definition of thanks·giv·ing
1. the expression of gratitude, especially to God.
"he offered prayers in thanksgiving for his safe arrival"
2. (in North America) an annual national holiday marked by religious observances and a traditional meal including turkey. The holiday commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621, and is held in the US on the fourth Thursday in November. A similar holiday is held in Canada, usually on the second Monday in October.
This month Americans celebrate Thanksgiving.
A day of gratitude for all the good and abundance that has been received in the past year.
For me, everyday is a celebration of the great gifts that the Universe has provided.
Giving this much thought, I have decided instead of celebrating Thanksgiving, I would like to celebrate Thanks – to – Giving!
Giving gifts to others can be rewarding, but giving who you are is the best gift.
We are conditioned to believe that giving money to those that need money, or giving food to those that are hungry is what we should do. We should give these things because we desire to give.
Often I hear from friends I wish I could give more, I should be doing more for others.
Giving is not just buying things, giving is also just being who you are and allowing those around you to have the experience of your authentic self.
Each of us come from the same Divine Source with our own individual essence.
We may have similar schedules and like to participate in the same activities, but we never quite do things exactly the same. We are all special in our own unique way!
We may dress the same and talk the same, but our finger prints are our own.
We choose to come into the physical to embrace all the joy of the physical, but also we come here to learn. Our best teachers are each other. Spending time and money on someone may bring them temporary happiness, but what they learn from that gift is what really matters.
When you don't learn you don't grow in consciousness.
Just being yourself and spending time with someone can teach them more than you imagine.
When you are around someone who is sad or depressed, just being there may be more of a gift than you think.
When you are full of joy and love, it does not matter what you do for others, by being around that vibration is not only pleasant but it is extremely healing.
There can only be one you, and that alone is a special gift.
For no one can give what only you have. Even if you are not feeling wonderful, if you stay true to yourself and be who you are meant to be, others will learn and grow from just being with you.
Never under estimate the powers of the Universe. There is a reason that we are not the same.
There is a purpose why we are surrounded by differences.
“Different” teaches us happiness, sadness, laughter, tears. We learn how to fly and how to climb mountains. Being around different allows us to see what options we have and the understanding of what it means to be able to choose all that we desire.
Loving yourself unconditionally teaches others to experience that happiness within themselves.
It is such a blessing to be happy being in your own skin and recognizing that the way you are and the way you look is perfect, whole and completely the way you are meant to be. Being content with just the way you are, others will feel the same about themselves. Feeling that you need to be someone your not, teaches others to want to be other than who they are. It is good to want to be and feel healthy in our bodies, but it is important to allow our bodies to be and feel healthy first.
Allowing is such a wonderful word. When we allow, we teach those around us to allow. This begins a chain which is called the law of attraction. This chain moves like an engine that continues to add
car after car until it becomes a train. Trains travel together to get where they desire to go in harmony. This is how our souls are in the non-physical, they are surrounded only with the vibration of love. The Universe is the engine and it connects all the different souls together in harmony. Each soul is different, just as we are in the physical. The difference is that in the non-physical, the Engine allows each soul to vibrate as they need to vibrate. The connection to each other is the vibration of Love.
Think of it as the engine pulls the passenger car, that pulls the club car, that pulls the sleeping car, that pulls the caboose and each connected by a cable.
In life, the Universe is the engine. You are the passenger car learning what direction you need to go by following the engine. I am the club car learning by following the passenger car, and so on. What's keeping us connected is love energy!
If our souls are surrounded by love energy in the non physical, and now reside in the human body, don't you think they would be happiest enveloped in the same love energy residing in the physical body?
We are here to enjoy our experience, and learn from ourselves and others. By living our own experience and not our neighbors, we start to enjoy all the wonderful gifts that the Universe desires for us. Because each of us is different and unique, we learn with honesty what to ask for that makes us happy.
When you give to others who you really are, you are giving and receiving your knowledge and wisdom, your attention, your joy, your smiles and your tears. You become both the teacher and student, in this adventure of life.
Be and give yourself to others just as you are in this moment.
Give thanks to giving you!
From one happy Turkey to another!
