I am open to receiving love, happiness, health and prosperity, knowing I deserve them all.
In response to the left side of my body crying out for attention, I have been working on my ability to receive for the last few months. I am amazed to learn over and over again that I already have all I want. Simply by changing my attention to what is here, now, that I appreciate, I have found everything I was looking for somewhere else. As plans change and things go differently than expected, they keep turning out better than I imagined.
Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day in America. My husband volunteered to host our family. He was nervous about how his turkey was going to turn out since it was the first year he took care of it from start to finish. I had been trying to find the motivation to clean our house for a week and it hadn’t shown up.
Because of the threat of an ice storm, most of the extended family ended up staying home. We had the turkey, potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce and green been casserole in town but the family that didn’t come had all the desserts. To make our meal complete, my husband picked up a pumpkin pie from the grocery store that morning and I whipped the cream. When the turkey got done early, my son and husband pitched in to a 45 minute speed cleaning session. The floors were freshly dried when our visitors showed up.
We ended up having what I felt was one of the best Thanksgiving dinners ever! Conversation was effortless and I got some great tips from my sister in law on how to make my own environmentally friendly, non toxic, inexpensive cleaning products. I believe everyone had a wonderful time. I’m pretty sure my nephew ate around 2lbs of turkey breast himself so the meat was a hit!
I approached the day open to receiving love, peace and joy. I had a couple of tense moments directing the men in house on what/how to clean but they did a great job. Everything worked out perfectly in the end.
The above affirmation was on a solar plexus meditation handout from the Shekinah Life Purpose Center. I came across it this morning when pondering what I wanted to write about today. In the past, I have tried to put myself in a position to give but because of my resistance to receiving, I blocked many great opportunities to exchange love. From a place of self criticism, I judged others unfairly as I judged myself unfairly.
This year will be the least expensive but most fulfilling holiday season yet for our family. There is no greater gift than being fully present in the moment with another person. I see that now.
Wishing you and yours health, peace and love this Winter season.
From my heart to yours,
Thanks for reading
