It’s that time of year when everyone is beginning to talk more and more about gratitude. It’s that “attitude of gratitude“ and it’s one that is a good one to have. But it’s very easy to get caught up in just those words, being thankful, saying thank you, and having that attitude of gratitude. Having that attitude is about more than that. It’s about more than just saying the words. It’s about being gratitude.
We’ve been talking about karma a lot in this eleventh month of the year, and this is the reason you want to not just say the words “thank you.” When you have that actual attitude of gratitude, miracles actually do happen to you more and more frequently. So don’t get caught up in the colloquialisms of having the attitude of gratitude. Instead, embody the spirit of gratitude.
We are in that time of year when everybody seems to be having a massive freak out. A stressful season is upon us. There’s so much to do, and so little time to do it!
You are thinking about the upcoming holiday season and a brand new year ahead. At the same time, you are probably still thinking about the past year. Part of what’s causing the panic is that you may feel you haven’t accomplished your goals for 2016. On top of worrying about all you need to do for the holidays, you are also worried about all you need to do, across your entire life
The holidays are the best time of year to take a big breath and calm down. We have an abundance of Sagittarius New Moon energy upon us tomorrow Tuesday 29 November and Sagittarius is the big thinker, it’s all about the ‘big picture’.
November’s New Moon is going to be sending waves of energy that will allows us to see things from a higher perspective and will open our awareness to new realms and new waves of thinking.
Sagittarius energy is electric, positive and most importantly, open minded and all of this energy is going to be on offer to us if we tune into it.
The Sagittarius New Moon is also going to trigger a cycle of awakening. In many ways, we are going to feel reborn and replenished after a long and hard year of cleaning out the metaphorical closets.
2016 has been a year of endings and now we are starting to wind down with the endings so we can make way for the new. The November New Moon is going to be supporting this cause and it is likely that new and exciting opportunities may emerge around this time, almost like the Universe is offering us a gift.
The Sagittarius New Moon is also going to shift our awareness away from what we have let go of and onto where we are now. In fact, this New Moon energy is going to be helping us to reflect and celebrate just how far we have come and just how much we have achieved. We all deserve to honor, thank and nourish our souls for the last 11 months.
The spirit of gratitude is exactly what it sounds like. It is about having that actual spirit, as much as possible. It’s impossible to be grateful every minute of every day. But when stress or discomfort arises in your daily life, being grateful for that experience sets off a chain reaction with the law of attraction that enables you to create and attract more abundance in your life. It’s all about your overall mindset, just like improving your karma is. You can spend time in the woe is me moments of life when negative events happen, or, you can thank Universe and the angels for sending you this test, and look beyond the test to see the opportunities you are actually being given.
Having that attitude of gratitude is a great thing
The attitude of gratitude is not about showing off that you are the bigger person. It’s about embracing your own positive mindset, to create your own personal success. And sometimes that’s just about having a successful day. And then doing it again. And again. That’s the power of embodying the spirit of gratitude.
We are all reminded more and more of this at this time of year. But it’s about more than just saying thank you in the good times. It’s about being truly appreciative of the tests and challenges that are thrown at us every single day. When you can see beyond those tests and challenges, and see them as opportunities, then you know you have nailed the spirit of gratitude and will rise like no other during this season of gratitude.
Use this time wisely. Instead of allowing your nervous energy to control you, plan that big picture. Again, this will all be about your mindset. Don’t think about what hasn’t been done. Instead, think about what you will do in the new year.
