Appreciation is a strategy for having more of what we want
Gratitude and giving are powerful, peaceful ways to have abundance
On Thanksgiving Day, I shared on Facebook a post I had just published on my healing website that gave the exercise below. This was unusual for me! I don’t usually: share on Facebook (these blog posts are an exception); post to my healing website, or share about my healing website on RAISING CLARITY.
But this gratitude exploration exercise was something I felt I’d been given first to practice and then to share if I liked it. I did like it! So I’m sharing it here with you. It has specific applications to peaceful, ethical money management and nonprofit fundraising!
Having more money is all about flow
Flow means flow. Not choosing good only but choosing to allow more of our lives into–and out of–our lives.
Response to the gratitude exploration exercise on social media was strong enough that I want to share this exploration with you to help you open flow. I may continue the exploration in a telephone seminar I’d like to invite you to. The more I do it, the more the exploration develops. I’d like to share it “live” with you. Comment if you’d like to be invited to the telephone seminar.
Gratitude exploration exercise
- Center in gratitude for what you have that you deserve. Allow yourself to feel genuine thankfulness for what you have earned and deserve. Enjoy the rich detail. Revel in it. You have earned this, you deserve it.
- Now shift to being grateful for what you’ve been given.There’s no question in your mind you didn’t earn it and yet, wow, here it is. Feel thankful for this wealth in its rich detail. Revel in it.
- Now, simply shift into awareness of all you have that you do not deserve. Can you also be thankful for this?
PS: The one (1) soul-colleague who took me up on my recent offer of free philanthropic coaching said, “What’s wrong with those people!?” when he found out no one else had take me up on it. It’s not too late! And we had a great conversation about all sorts of aspects of giving away money.
