“A Gratitude Ritual”

A Gratitude Ritual

By Debbie Ford

The beautiful gifts of gratitude begin at home

so today invite a healing to happen

in your own body

in your own consciousness

in your own loving heart

that feels blessed to be alive

Notice all the riches you’ve been given

the feet that allow you to stand

the legs that allow you to walk

the stomach that allows you to eat

the lungs that allow you to breathe

the throat that allows you to speak

the mouth that allow you to taste

the nose that allows you to smell

the eyes that allow you to see

and your beating heart

that allows you to love

Honor them all

Become present to the treasures of your life

the opportunities that you have been given

the ones that have effortlessly opened up for you this year

Reflect on your family, your kids, your partner, your friends

Look through appreciative eyes

the eyes of what’s right

the eyes of the divine

Give thanks in a way that you never have before

Allow fear, doubt, struggle and pain

to melt away in the presence of this all-loving appreciation

Thank God that you have a consciousness

that is able to shift and transform in just a moment

Thank God that you are courageous enough

to take a moment to bless yourself

to bless the universe

to bless all those who love and guide you

and then to bless all of the world

Send your tears of love and gratitude

to those who are in pain

to those who are alone

to those who are confused

Allow the heavenly vibration of gratitude

to puncture their fearful illusions

and open up their hearts to what is truly divine

Today, take this vow of deep self-love and gratitude

knowing that when you are in the presence of this kind of love

you – as well as all of those around you – will flourish

Take five slow deep breaths, breathing in

love, appreciation, gratitude and joy

Know that you are never alone and you will never be alone

We are all here surrounding you with love
