Gratitude Shifts Your Consciousness and Your Business

By Adela Rubio

It's impossible not to feel the pull of gratitude during the Thanksgiving season.

As you get ready to share the holiday with family and friends take a moment to notice how the act of thanks giving generates abundance. Just this focus alone will transform your holiday from one of ‘things to do' to an experience of it's essence.

Shift your awareness to the potential of what this sacred tradition honors: the exponential power of focusing on what's right in your world. This simple tool for conscious expansion has a profound effect on your ability to bring into being what you envision.

Imagine yourself …

…at the threshold of your Thanksgiving gathering, whether you're the host or the guest

…at the dinner table, as you eagerly anticipate the sharing of delicious and lovingly prepared food

…in the circle of your family, or community, as you share the day with a game, a movie, or a tantalizing conversation

So too, is gratitude a vehicle for abundance in your business. Take a moment to reflect on all the abundance you've experienced in your business this year.

  • Feel the flow of creativity and clarity that has helped you define and package your expertise to serve others.
  • Acknowledge the value you've provided your clients, through the programs and services you've delivered.
  • Remember the breakthrough moments, when you chose to engage the challenges instead of avoiding them.
  • Notice the abundant flow of opportunities and collaborators that have graced and evolved your work.
  • Take note of how your business has grown, the breadth and depth of it, and how YOU have grown too!

Today and every day, resolve to start your day with giving thanks for what's right! Embrace the graceful exchange of value with your clients, colleagues, and community.  Commit to embody the unique essence of your business. Give thanks and acknowledge your willingness to bring it to life.

I deeply appreciate your participation in my programs and offerings. May we continue to adventure together for as long as we can be of service to one another. Gracias!

  1. Adela, this is so beautifully written and so “spot-on” for today!

    You know, there has been so much superficial fluff written about the importance of gratitude and so forth, but you have that magic way to teach us how to easily and effortlessly bring it into our lives.

    I appreciate you my dear friend!


  2. Thank you Adela! I believe that I first heard about you or heard you speak on one of Shifra Hendrie’s tele summits. I am working with a business coach who has Suzanne Evans as her business coach. What a small world sometimes. I am very much looking forward to meeting you and talking with you some time soon. We have so much in common. I am thankful that our paths have crossed.



  3. Nice touch, Beloved Adela:

    This is obviously great information to be considered for many of us. We thanks you for taking the time to print it for our consideration.

    I have taken the liberty to post it on FB and Twitter.

    Be ever ONE-D’er-Full!

  4. Hi Adela, thanks for the timely reminder about the importance of gratitude. One of my favourite sayings is that if you were lucky enough to be born in North America, you’ve already won the lottery.

    I remember years ago watching Oprah and seeing the author who wrote Simple Abundance talk about the importance of being thankful for five things each day. I practice this when I’m in bed just before I go to sleep and it’s made a huge difference in my life. I focus more on what I have rather than on what I THINK I need or is missing. We have so much to be thankful for, don’t we?

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    1. Kathy,

      My life shifted big time when I participated in a group gratitude practice. This focus thing is magical, if it weren’t so simple and practical. I guess it’s both. I begin my day with it. Now that I think of it, your suggestion sounds great too. Gratitude bookends!

      There is MUCH to be thankful for!

  5. Thank you Adela,

    For the heartfelt reminders that will allow us to stay in the attitude to gratitude. The hectic pace of life can draw our attention to the “doing” instead of the “being” where we can truly connect with our spirit. It’s in the space of gratitude that we connect to our desires with the appreciation of their fulfillment. Desire is our spirit speaking to us through us, so when we take the time to remember how our desires have played out in our lives we are connecting to our inner guidance of what our soul is craving. A soul satisfied is a soul fulfilled.

    I intend on sharing your article with my community as we gather for our “Living in Gratitude” Thanksgiving Dinner.

    I am in gratitude for you and your words of inspiration that you share with us. May you and your family enjoy a heartfelt Thanksgiving holiday together.

    Happy Thanksgiving,

    1. D’Marie,

      Thank you for the beautiful and powerful reflection. Gratitude illuminates the infinite design. It is an honor to share it with you.

      My appreciation for sharing my heart felt sentiments with your community. May you bask in the light of our shared intention.
