As I sat to write this, I noted that the first Sunday in November marks the end of Daylight Saving Time, which means it will get darker earlier, seemingly shortening our days. Frankly, I felt a bit of resistance—that is, until I retitled this time shift to “Daylight Awakening Time.” My heart filled with gratitude as I realized awakening to our Divine Self, to come home to our own hearts, is a timeless adventure, which gave birth to this month’s theme, Beyond Grateful.
I invite you to join me each week this month as we pull back the surface layers of the meaning of gratitude and enter its depths. And as we do, I have every confidence that we will rejoice as never before in our discoveries.
The topic on November 18, 2018, was Praise It and You Raise It. If we remove the letter “p” from the word “praise,” we are left with “raise,” as in rising up and beyond what we imagine possible. For thousands of years, the Wise Ones have proven that to praise is to raise one’s spirit and consciousness into the heavenly realm of being. As Robert Collier reminds us, “the way to expand what we have is through praise, joy, and Thanksgiving.”
