The Power of Thank You

27 Feb

I begin each day reading a page or two out of A Course in Miracles. This is my bible, and like the Old and New Testaments, not always easy to understand.

What I like to do is before I begin I will ask Infinite Spirit to guide me to the topic that is most important for me to learn that day. I will then randomly open the book to a chapter or page. It is when I begin reading that I realize that what I am reading is exactly the information I needed to discover that day.

Today I opened A Course in Miracles to page 220 and Lesson 123, entitled I thank my Father for His gifts to me. It begins:

Today let us be thankful. We have come to gentler pathways and to smoother roads. There is no thought of turning back, and no implacable resistance to the truth. A bit of wavering remains, some small objections and a little hesitance, but you can well be grateful for your gains, which are far greater than you realize.

This and the remaining seven paragraphs in this lesson brought me great comfort and reminded me of how it is so important to be appreciative and grateful for all that God has given me. But it also reminds me that being thankful for what I receive also works to ask God, the Universe, Infinite Spirit, your higher power for what I desire in my life. And this is how I do that.

Instead of asking for a safe and enjoyable drive to my destination when I get into my car and put on my seat belt, I will often say; God, thank you for a safe and enjoyable drive to (my destination). May traffic flow perfectly all the way there.

If I’m going into a business meeting I will say; Thank you Infinite Spirit for a perfect meeting. And then I will describe what a perfect meeting means to me.

Try these over the next couple of days. As you begin to see the things you are grateful for start manifesting into your life – expand it to everything you desire.

With love,

Michael
