My son’s birthday is quickly approaching, and it has gotten me to pondering about life, the world and EVERYthing! So, the other night after a joyfully peaceful gratitude and chakra meditation, I began to wonder what have I learned from life so far?:
Life is short, but long enough. All the lessons, tools and guides are already here to help us along our journey. The Universe has provided us with the equipment to grow, thrive and flourish into authentic beings.
Life is often as bountiful and abundant as we are grateful for. The more genuine gratitude we show and extend, the more we have to be thankful for. And, the more we realize just how much we truly have gives way to greater thanksgiving. Appreciation energies attract more of the same leading to greater abundance and joy.
To paraphrase one of my mentors, “Everything is energy, and energy is never lost.” It transforms, mutates, twists, diminishes, expands and increases in intensity. Energy can be either positive or negative or neither, but it is always passed on. Like knowledge, it should never be hoarded, but allowed to flow lovingly and freely from and through us.
As my son turns one year older, and I one year wiser in my mother- and womanhood, I look forward to learning more of life’s lessons.
Celebrating living Lighter, Brighter and FULLER lives! 🙂
