The Gift of Gratitude
Â By Rev. Nina Roe
Have you ever opened your eyes to a new day and Â felt, “Ugh!”?Have you felt anxiety about changes that are Â entering into your life?…and you wonder, “did I really ask for this?”
I don’t usually wake up feeling discouraged, but this morning I did. Today fear reared it’s unwelcome head.
AngelsTeach Â is in the face of a major transition. We moved out of the Â studio in Medway MA. two weeks ago after I faced my truth and accepted Â that it Â was not the right answer and never would be. The Â buidling was under construction and would be for the foreseeable future. More importantly, it never felt right in my heart.
When I was free of the ties of physical space, I felt surprisingly liberated. It was if my path was becoming suddenly clearer. And I remember that sometimes clarity comes from knowing what you don’t want.
AngelsTeach.com came as an inspiration from the angels late last winter and has been blossoming like a beautiful rose ever since. It has grown by leaps and bounds, established some wonderful strategic partnerships and has truly become its own Being.
I honor my role as the gardener. I honor my role as caretaker to guide, but not control this amazing entity that I have been given.
But this morning, as I laid in bed Â watching the Â day open its eyes on a new beginning and contemplated all the changes that lie before me, I sighed and Â wondered, “do I have enough energy to complete this mission? Can I Â continue to flow with the changes that AngelsTeach needs to ensure its success? Has it grown bigger than what I can handle?”.
Not knowing what else to do and feeling overwhelmed, I did what I do best. I talked to my Angels. They gently guided me to bring my focus to gratitude for all that is clear in my life right now. And I lay breathing in gratitude.
I am grateful for this bed.
I am grateful for these soft sheets and this Â toasty blanket.
I am grateful for my beloved husband, my twin flame, who offered to get Â our children ready for school and who’s warm body I can still feel and smell in the empty space next to me.
I am grateful for Â our son who may be struggling with his grades at the moment, but who I know will do well in life because he spreads love and joy wherever he goes.
I am grateful for Â our daughter who is Â beautiful, creative, my greatest teacher Â and has a heart of gold.
I am grateful for the trees outside my window and love how they support the birds and the squirrels who live in them.
I am grateful for Â our Â kitten who entertains us by acting like a dog and fetches her yarn ball and comes when you whistle.
I am grateful for her mother who sometimes pees where she shouldn’t to remind us that while she is a cat, she has wants and desires too.
I am grateful for the amazing people I have met…in the past year, in the past decade, since I became an adult. Since I was a child. I grateful for choosing to see them all with the eyes of Love.
I am grateful for my friends who encourage and support Â me.
I am grateful for my students who dedicate their lives to making positive change for themselves and in their world.
I am grateful for my subscribers who are along for the journey and understand that aligning yourself with your higher being and the will of the angels is “simply Divine”!
I am grateful to my students and clients who Â understand that AngelsTeach is evolving at light speed. Who are patient while Â schedules and offerings are changing… almost daily.
I am grateful for our Earth and how She sustains us with unconditional Love.
I am grateful for the Â Heavens which pours its brilliant light all over us.
I am grateful for you.
I am grateful for the unwaivering Â support from my Angels.
I am grateful for me.
And as I continue to breathe in the energy of gratitude and exhale love to the world around me, I am calmed. I become peaceful.
And I know without doubt that I can continue on my path. I am strengthened by gratitude and supported by the Angels. Always. Without exception.
And so are you!
My love and gratitude to you, because you are YOU!
