My heart asked me to share this simple message with you as an affirmation that we may use as we create and connect.
The application of gratitude will transform the feel of any situation or connection. If you wish to amplify that, pour on some love and observe how fear and doubt dissolve, resulting in ample peace and joy.
In the US, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week, followed by diverse religious and cultural celebrations in December and January.
While some people experience overflowing abundance within connection and celebration, others experience the feel of minimal and dread these months.
Some people are truly glad to be present to the celebration, some vest their presence out of habit or obligation, some withdraw their presence completely.
We choose to focus on and celebrate all that we do have, or to focus on and feel the “lack of” all that we do not have.
We choose to vest our presence in that which enriches our being, enlivens our spirit and is in alignment with our heart whispers, or to vest our presence in ways that do not resonate– thus, drain our spirit and deplete our energy.
We make those choices.
Sometimes we stand strong in faith, sometimes we move between full and empty.
Whatever choice we make, may we gently, lovingly appreciate who we are as we make that choice. May we not judge ourselves, or others. May we remember that each moment offers an opportunity to choose again.
When we allow the feel of the experience to be dependent upon external circumstances (for example: the amount of money we have and the number of connections in our life–two factors people tend to look at during this season), we are limiting the potential depth to surface level. We are, in essence, surrendering our power.
When we allow the feel of the experience to emerge from our heart–our centered space of love and gratitude–external has no bearing on the quality and depth that we experience (even if we have minimal money and connections). We are in essence, choosing to create with empowerment.
Please remember, the past has no bearing on this moment of now. You are more than labels and age and physical health and material possessions and external connections suggest. You are infinite possibility; overflowing abundance manifested in physical form.
And, so I am. That is what I choose to bring to the table. Will you join me?

And, here are my Twitter #sixwords phrases for the last week and a half :
sunsets radiance, gently coaxing heart whispers
presence through love lightens, gratitude brightens
slow stretch / sweet surrender / savory silence
love invites energetic and physical unlayering
his heart whispers invited my collaboration
tear- and raindrops falling in unison
drowning in a sea of words
savoring silence, I feel overflowing abundance
sharing gratitude enriches and enlivens *everything*
the sun rises in my heart
May we celebrate each day with love and gratitude!
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Experiment. Explore. Experience.
