The Attitude of Gratitude in Ascension

The day falls quietly on the other side of a national "feasting" celebration...though if I were to travel just a few miles from home or search the virtual world even just a little, I would find something less than quiet as the "pre-holiday" shoppers bustle their way through crowds and sales all in the name of giving and receiving come December the 25th. I, however, am still lingering over the cause and effect of a holiday called "Thanksgiving" and what it all means and how I can best harvest the goodness from it today and every day no matter what the calendar says.

Gratitude. This is a word and an attitude which I have felt and experienced to make more than a feast full of difference in how things show up for me, how things are processed, what my reality is and how things move forward, whether fluid or seemingly "stuck."  For Gratitude, when truly expressed and acknowledge is a game-changer. It can alter the "worst" of experiences and make them suddenly the most enlightening. It is no wonder many mystics and teachers have named gratitude to be one of the "ascension attitudes" and I totally agree.

Pain, fear, worry, anger, depression, aches and ailes all have a downward pulling momentum. They act on gravity and move one "toward the earth" in that deterioration of the physical vessel becomes an effect of such expressions if steeped in for too long.

Now, on the other hand, if these same attitudes are allowed to move through, quickly and fluidly for the sake of "shaking off the goo" so to speak, they can alternately have the result of their "opposite" in the way they would leave one. Does that make sense?  So, indulging in pain, for too long, increases gravity, pull, heaviness and ultimately deterioration of life-force and expression...BUT...if felt, acknowledged and turned over to receive the insight - pain can be enlightening and even evolutionary.  Same goes for fear, worry, and so called "negative emotions" of every kind.

Gratitude, on the other hand, in ANY stage of the game, is UP-lifting and is a levitating attitude, drawing and pulling one upward and toward Life, toward Health, Wisdom, Compassion, Good-will and Immortality...Because it lightens one. Gratitude is anti-gravity, anti-aging and the best cough medicine you could ever find.  We often have an easier time feeling and expressing gratitude during the smooth "easy" times than we do during the times we hurt and feel sad...though these are the times we need the levitating effects of gratitude the MOST.

You wouldn't take an anti-histamine if you weren't congested, would you? Usually not...on the other hand, it is easy and even fun to utilize the altering properties of gratitude when we are already in the flow....{not to say it isn't great and largely beneficial to have gratitude ALL the Time}...but it is doubly, triply and even exponentially more important to activate the attitude of gratitude when you are NOT feeling super...

In the quest for, or simply through the process of Ascension, as we grapple with what that means and do our best to follow methods, techniques, processes and procedures that might best support us in these of the MOST important things we can do, to continue to ascend with ease and fluidity, is to have Gratitude. Truly, Ascension is a process of lifting our vibration, living on a higher plane of existence and awareness.  Life - or the Us we have known is Life - has been perhaps use to a "lower" vibe, and will invite us repeatedly to stay where we have been, to continue to inhabit the vibration that we have been at ...not to leave it and go somewhere "better" - though the change isn't always presented or experienced as better right away.  Life says "don't leave me, please stay...don't you like it here?"

Changing vibrations is often times tough and unpleasant. It is the fuzz between channels on a is the weird and uncomfortable place in-between...on the way to where we so often intend ourselves to go..  Though when the "change" starts to happen, which feels sometimes "yucky" we retreat to "comfort" -- which is the lower vibration from which we were so desperate to escape.  Initially, the retreat feels good, 'cause we know it, it is familiar to us...comfortable, in some respects... But, soon enough, we will become uncomfortable once again as our spirits yearn for something higher, something more than we are experiencing...and we know it is somewhere we want to go...though we often cannot figure out how to get there.

It seems, somehow, that when we begin to move toward that higher octave, and go through this "weird" vibrational mismatch, that we have made a wrong move...cause it feels bad   - - at first.  "How can this be right?" - we ask ourselves..."How can I be making a right move, when it feels so uncomfortable?".....Alas, we must make it through the channel change.  The more we do this, the easier it will be, the more familiar those "channel-changing" spaces will become and we will learn to ride them out with more grace.  Until then, it is a good idea to remind yourself that it doesn't necessarily feel good to move toward positive change, at first...and to commit to riding out the fluxuation, even if life is seeming to "blow up in your face" - - which it so often appears to in these spaces.

This is where it is so important to come back to Gratitude. It will help us get through the change...It has helped me so many times, to make it through a transition that seemed to suck - and instead of complaining about how sucky things felt in those times, I decided to have gratitude and look at the positive....and WOW - - that really works!!  Gratitude helps us to ascend with drop the burdens of decay, dis-ease and depression.  It really does.

So...if you aren't already in the habit of daily gratitudes, I highly recommend it.  Get a Gratitude Journal or start a morning Gratitude session at home. Do gratitudes until you can't Not do them.

Plus, as just an added bonus tidbit...apparently there are acupuncture points, chakra vortexes, on the bottoms of the feet, which connect to Earth mama....and are Activated by propel us lighten the space between us and Earth.  When we have gratitude, these points swirl with energy and lift us.  When we experience the opposite, of complaint, depression, anger and sadness....AND STAY IN THEM (remember)....then these chakra points depress as well, slow, stagnate and the effect is a heavier physical experience....gravity actually has a greater effect on PULLS us down...and it is really hard to come up when we feel that way.

Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to get out of a funk and when others join you in the funk it's even harder....??!  This is because the collective points now bond (where 2 or more are gathered) - - yep, this works in the negative as well as the positive. You might as well tie some bowling balls to your ankles and walk around.  So...if you hear the complaints start to flow, from one of your "lightworker" friends and you know better...but sometimes get sucked in....DON"T.  Listen, if they need you to.  Validate their Life...And then begin the gratitudes.  It's hard not to want to join in when someone hears another speak of what they are appreciative's contagious. It really is.

So...during this time of increased emphasis on gratitude...notice how things begin to lighten up....notice and utilize this time of year when appreciation is HIGH and lift the Attitude of Gratitude...and Ascend.

Love you all.
May Bliss Be in Your House Today (the inner and outer versions) it is in Mine.
Thank you for Being YOU and for Joining me here yet again.
