The Power of Gratitude…

Posted by carolom on September 11, 2007

I ran a session today for a group of Women who have had many obstacles and challenges in life. Violence, abuse, racism…the list is extensive.
Our discussion was about the power of Gratitude and how activating appreciation for simply being alive can begin to move one up the emotional scale from depression and despair to love and connection…
“I’m here…i woke up this morning…and for a long time I didn’t want to be” was the reflection of one of the Women.

There is a never ending list of injustices in the world and it is those who are able to find a peaceful place within who can make a huge difference with their small circle and thus the wider one of the global community…

The rise in mental health issues reveals that many people are stuck in the never ending cycle of anguish and depression so spending time in the company of wounded goddesses who are making a difference in their life , brought to mind the “Gratitude Dance”….

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SITE. I CAME ACROSS IT OUT OF A TIME OF DISCOURAGEMENT AND DISTRESS. I’D JUST BEGUN RE-READING SOME WORK ON THE LAW OF ATTRACTION….JUST A STARTER IN THIS JOURNEY…AND THE VERY NEXT DAY AFTER LISTENING AND READING A TON OF THINGS BEGAN FALLING APART ALL AROUND ME SENDING ME INTO A STATE OF UPSET AND ANGER. TYPICALLY I AM A HAPPY PERSON, BUT THESE FEW DAYS I AM SO ANGRY AND HURT. I NEEDED TO GET MYSELF OUT OF THIS STATE AND JUST TALK MYSELF INTO KNOWING THAT SOMETHING WAS PUTTING ITSELF IN MY WAY…SOMETHING I PERSONALLY CREATE??? I DON’T KNOW THE LANGUAGE OF THIS WORK BUT WON’T GIVE UP ON TRYING TO CHANGE MY THINKING FOR THE GOOD.
    THIS NOTE IS JUST TO SAY THANK YOU, I BELIEVE IT IS ATTAINABLE AND ACHIEVABLE….WILL YOU TAKE A MOMENT TO SEND POSITIVE ENERGIES MY WAY IN MY EFFORTS FOR THIS MAGNIFICENT CHANGE THAT IS AVAILABLE IN MY LIFE.
    YOUR SITE IS WONDERFUL, YOUR WORK, AMAZING!!! WHAT A BLESSING!
    THANK YOU.
