Last month, Dr. Masaru Emoto, the brilliant water researcher, passed away peacefully at age 71.  It has been reported that his last word was "Arigato," or "Thank you" in Japanese.  

Emoto's mesmerizing pictures of water crystals, exposed to different vibrations and then frozen and photographed, as well as his vast research, have helped our generation to understand the extraordinary impact of thoughts, words, and intention can have on water crystals. Since over 50% of our bodies, and an even more significant portion of our earth is made of water, the impact his findings make on issues such as individual and collective consciousness as well as personal and world peace is immense.

One of the best ways to apply the power of intentional thought to enrich our lives is to replace lower-vibration thoughts and habitual negative attitudes with more postitive ones.  This does not mean we should deny our feelings.  In fact, your new positive outlook will be more authentic if you take some time to discharge the negative emotions first.  This can often be done on the physical level, by taking a walk or spending some quality time on your yoga mat.  Try a reiki session for deeper energetic release, or journaling to let go of problems and difficult thoughts on a mental level.     Once the intensity of our emotions is diffused, we can work to fill in the space with something more uplifting.

Gratitude is a helpful replacement for patterns of fear, discontentment or entitlement.   When we focus on what we are thankful for, there is less mind-space for more negative emotions that can lower our energetic vibration, leading to disease, depression and mental fatigue.  Just as by changing our actions, we can create positive habits in our external world, we can also re-wire our thinking patterns by habitually choosing to think about, concentrate on or meditate on gratidude.  Many would even agree that the mind that is full of thanksgiving has very little room emotions like fear, worry or regret.

Here are some practical ways to choose gratitude this month:

1.  Gratitude list:  Make a list of 30 things you are thankful for.  This powerful practice can lift you out of a deep mental rut and remind you of the little things that make life worth living.

2.  Daily gratitude affirmation - Each morning, look in the mirror and say, "I release all chains to the past and let go of all worry about the future.  I choose to open my eyes and heart with gratitude, to the blessings and opportunities of this day.

3.  Say "thank you!"  Gratitude is contagious.  This month, choose someone every day for a week who has touched your life.  Give them a call, a note or even an email to express your thankfulness with authenticity.  This will lift their spirit - AND yours.

Wishing all of you a month of abundance and thanksgiving.  

I am so very grateful for each of YOU!

See you at OM....

With Love,
