Gratitude Facilitates Change

Energy Shifts, Enlightened Gratitude

Change can be a source of great discomfort for many folks. And yet, it is a natural law. Nothing remains unchanged. Everything is on a continuum of being, whether we're talking planets or stars, flowers or seasons, rhythms or cycles.

Everything in life is a come and a go, and the ONE thing you can most certainly count on is that things will change.

You can stress about unwanted change, and it's sure to generate a host of emotional, physical and spiritual ills. You can resist or rant about the acceleration of change, but it won't change the pace one bit.

Man has nothing else to do but surrender — in deep trust, in deep love. Don’t be a doer,  just surrender. Let there be a let-go. Osho

You could chose to partner with change! Though you might at first feel your spine curl, there is power in opening to this partnership.

Here's how:

1. Clarify Your Vision. The more personal and specific your vision, the easier it is to bring it into being. It's very hard to get to your destination if you don't know where you're going. Of course, action is what helps you get crystal clear. Your vision gets refined as you test your ideas in the laboratory of life.

2. Acknowledge Where You Are. Make an honest assessment of your starting point and give yourself some kudos for what you've already accomplished. Consider what strengths, gifts and abilities will serve you in shifting from where you are, to where you'd like to be. You may need some help with this piece. It can be difficult to get a really accurate picture on your own. It can be easy dismiss your greatness, as well as your stumbling blocks. Get feedback from a coach, mentor or power pal and make sure to avail yourself from the support in the energetic realms, too.

3. Free Your Energy. If you'd like to shift your current reality, you have to step out of the well worn grooves. That requires energy and focus. Here's where gratitude is a powerful tool. Gratitude grants you access to positive focus in your awareness. It increases energy and creates flexibility in movement. It's easier to unhook from an existing habit when you have the energy surplus to snap out of  its energetic orbit.

4. Direct Your Focused Flow. Now that you can shift your perspective, and can direct your flow, it is much easier to take inspired action and bridge the gap from where you are to what you envision.

Want to make it even easier to open to the abundance of gratitude? Every time you feel the pull of a limited point of view, super connect to All That Is and to your light tribe. Don't do it alone! Access the infinite weave of creation and partner with Life to move you into more.

You'll navigate the experience much more easily, and gracefully open to the dynamic pathway of your inevitable evolution. Enjoy the sweet surrender of infinite gratitude.

  1. Thank you for a magnificent shift to support what I sense is happening with us and around us, Adela.

    I have been as affected as the next person lately, by bright strobes of light, illuminating perceptions of limitation. I have battled with my resistance to the magnificent New, to the point of literally retiring to what at first I thought of as my cave, but I have come to accept as my womb, peeking my head out only to confer with a few doulas about my birthing process.

    Aah, yes, labor has been wonderfully exhausting, with contractions of resistance and self-judgment of my story so far, but now…

    I have birthed myself, in my essence, merged with Life, with All that Is, with all the beautiful essences of the Universe, breathing, flowing with and Being unconditional all-encompassing Universal Love. I surrender to the birth of Me, in a new dimension, in Enlightened Gratitude indeed.

    1. You gave me goose bumps, Sus. Thanks for including me with your group of trusted doulas. Always in appreciation for the light that is you and the honor of true connection. Infinite love and gratitude, all ways.
