''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie,
Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.”
Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"
ENERGY OF GRATITUDE
Chris Griscom Thanksgiving Message
Dear Soul Friends,
in the U.S., we are celebrating a time of "Thanksgiving" that harkens
back to the survival of the first pilgrims who came through hard times
in a new land in which they were not yet in harmony with nature. They
survived mostly with the guidance and help of the Native Americans who
taught them what to grow and gave them food. Today, as then, we
celebrate the abundance of food and the harvest of nature we have
collected to sustain us.
In truth, this celebration calls upon us
to give thanks to those friends who have steadfastly guided us through
our limitations and taught us how to survive on all levels of our
existence. "Giving Thanks" is a wonderful opportunity to contemplate
the gifts of friendship we perennially receive every day and to deeply
honor all those--friend and foe--who play an important part in our
evolution towards enlightened humans.
The best way to truly give
thanks is to extend our conscious awareness to all the others who help
us in one way or another in our lives and to extend to them an energy of
gratitude by holding them in our hearts.
I do this by bringing
them into my mind's eye and then asking what frequency of light (color)
they need from me to experience my thankfulness and love for them.
Whatever color comes into my consciousness--from them--I then imagine it
coming down from the cosmos as a beam of light entering through the top
of my head and radiating out through my stomach or Solar Plexus to
them. I allow the flow to continue until I perceive a change such as a
smile or expansion. This is how I know that they have received my
gift--back to them. This act of giving thanks always brings me a sense of peace and connection, and I know you will feel the same.
I send to all of you my Great Love and Gratitude that we can share and protect our beautiful planet together.
