"EVERYONE without exception is very, very special with extraordinary qualities and extraordinary powers. You just may not know it yet. The secret is to be, love and cherish yourself; it is to be your true essence. You are love and light, infinite wisdom and unlimited possibilities. Whatever you ask, you shall receive. You can have, be and do anything you want. You just need to choose what makes you happy in your heart. It is very simple. Remember, you are loved beyond measure for who you are and you are beautiful."

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in this beautiful month of October. Your assignment this month is to awaken each morning and let your very first thought be about gratitude. Be grateful for each person who is in your life. Be grateful for each opportunity you have to grow and learn. Be grateful for just being alive. Fill yourself with gratitude for everything in your life. Everything. And most of all, love yourself for being you exactly as you are.
The Angel of October - rejoices as we reap the harvest of what we have sown in life. October is a good time to step back from our projects and our dreams and to take a hard look at what we have actually accomplished. The October angel helps us to be honest and objective about what is good and what is not. With this help, we can face clearly the consequences of our choices over these past seasons. We will taste our harvest and reject what is bitter or unripe; we will make note of what worked and what did not, and we will change for the better. October's angel teaches us that the greatest fruit of our personal harvest is understanding ourselves.
Thank you for being YOU.
In Love AND Gratitude, ME.
Karen Mosuk, Reiki Master CRA-RT 05 140
I love what God has made as me!
The revelation of my soul
continues to unfold each day with ease and grace!
My every step is ordered by divine intelligence!
All of my relationships
are rooted in the love of God!
Unbounded energy, unlimited abundance
and unfettered freedom are mine today!
Life is good! God is great! And I am grateful!
And so it is!
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
allows us to gracefully release the judgments of the
mind, guiding us to 'think with our hearts', to
appreciate what IS, and IN-JOY life ... whether the sun is shining or there are grey skies
Today I begin the day with gratitude; I know that there is a power in
gratitude that opens the heart and makes me and my life ready for even more
blessings. I take stock of all the facets of my life, and notice that even
where I am feeling challenged, there is a blessing to be thankful for.
And gratitude keeps me open to receive the guidance, the support, the strength, and the wisdom I need to walk confidently through every day of my life. And for this, I am indeed in a state of perpetual gratitude.
And so it is.
Law of Gratitude: This is one universal law that states you must show gratitude for what you have. If you show gratitude, you also show you appreciate the things in your life, no matter what those things may be. It is just a matter of acknowledging them and telling the universe that you are glad you have themin your life. By having gratitude, you actually speed your growth and success faster than you normally would. This is because if you appreciate the things you have, even if they are small things, you are telling the universe that you are accepting of them and you are open to receiving, and will receive more.
Try this creative and relaxing Leaf Meditation.
Find a perfect autumn leaf and spend some time really looking at it, noticing the variations in color and shape. Trace its outline on a piece of paper, then try your hand at coloring it in with colored pencils, markers, or paints. Slowing down and taking time to savor the beauty of something as simple and commonplace as a leaf opens our eyes and hearts to nature's magical variety. You may want to cut your colored leaf out and glue it on the cover of a journal to keep you company throughout the autumn months. Or do several leaves to decorate your cabinets or walls!
Think water. Western European traditions often associate Autumn with the element of water, since it is a time of deep feeling and flowing away: birds migrate, trees shed their leaves. Honor this ancient idea with a bowl of water in a special place. Notice how water evaporates. As you refill your bowl throughout the autumn months, give a little thought to your own feelings, and the things that you are in the process of releasing from your life.
Gratitude is an important part of real worship. To be thankful for the great gifts we are given is to be truly alive to the richness of life. If we actually looked at our food each time we ate - savoring it with all our senses rather than simply consuming it without consciousness - how much savor we would find in even the simplest food! And if we greeted each day by noticing and acknowledging the beauty of the world, how much pleasure would this gratitude give us!
Look to this day, for it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the realities and verities of existence.
The bliss of growth, the splendor of action, the glory of power.
And yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision.
But today - well lived - makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
~ Sanskrit proverb ~
Always find the joy and life energy in any given situation, and rejoice that you’re alive to be able to experience it.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
“Throughout history wise men and women have encouraged us to feel grateful for what we have. Why? Very simply, because gratitude makes us feel good. When you’re feeling grateful, your mind is clear and therefore you have access to your greatest wisdom and common sense. You see the big picture.” Richard Carlson.
The angels stand by to help you today. They are there with their caring presence. And for every kindness you share, for every smile and every peal of laughter that you give as a gift today, they will increase it tenfold, blessing all who cross your path with unending love.
You are unique in all of the universe and you are living in this unique moment. So fill yourself with a deep abiding gratitude for having this experience here and now. Set aside your regrets for what you have done or left undone in the past. It does not matter. Set aside your fears and worries over what is coming in the future. It will come as it will come, and no amount of fear or worry will make it better.
Clear yourself of all of that and come deeply into now. Feel this moment flowing through you. This moment flows through you and with each tick of the clock, that moment is passed and will never exist again, exactly like this. How precious it is. How precious is each and every tick of that clock, as it takes you through this great adventure of a life.
Nothing stays the same. Everything evolves and changes. Everything is vibrantly alive and evolving, even when it does not seem so. Still, it is true.
And so, capture this time, capture it deep within you in a state of deep gratitude. Be glad to be alive. Be glad to know the people you know, to have the opportunities you have, to be the center of whatever life you have built for yourself.
And know that this constant state of change and evolution represents opportunity. If everything is changing every moment, then you can help it all to change and flow in the direction you wish through your thoughts and actions, focusing them and challenging the world to move in the direction you wish. This is within your power.
And if you begin with a state of gratitude, you will put yourself in the right frame of mind to make the right sort of changes happen around you. Begin with loving everyone in your life, with acting toward them with love, with being grateful for their presence, and your relationships will begin to shift and evolve in a wonderful way.
As you move through your day, show your gratitude. Take the time to tell people that you care. Take the time to write that note you have been thinking of, to express your gratitude to everyone around you. Look for opportunities to thank people, to compliment them, to acknowledge that they are in your life and contributing to it.
Look for opportunities to be nice to the people who help serve you, in the grocery store, the dry cleaners. Everyone who crosses your path should be blessed with your love and gratitude. Feel your connection to them. Feel it and show it, demonstrate it. Be conscious all week of what else you might do to demonstrate your gratitude to those around you.
And as for your family, bless them deeply in your heart. Show them that you appreciate their steadfast loyalty, the fact that they are there for you. Demonstrate it in everything you do and say.
Also spend a little time in nature, in a park or even just gazing out the window. Notice the beauty of the world. Notice the birds, the clouds, the beauty of a simple leaf or flower. Notice the benevolent beauty of nature and say thank you in your heart.
Do this consciously throughout the week and then notice how wonderful it makes you feel. How peaceful and loving it is. See what a wonderful foundation it is for a life well-lived. Experience what it is like to truly be glad for the great and wonderful things and people in your life. And then, remember this feeling. And as the weeks go by, if you find yourself again dwelling in a world of worry or criticism, remember what it was like in this week of gratitude and remind yourself to fill yourself with this good grace continuously, like a drink of water to a thirsty heart.

Life is a perpetual change we must accept and to which we have to continually adapt. Often our mind does not accept these changes and creates unnecessary tension, fear and prevents us to flow with life.
Nothing is greater than to let go with the flow of life in a total acceptance.
If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is “Thank You” ~ it will be enough.
