Giving Thanks

#Healing #ThanksgivingWhen the child mistakenly touches the hot stove and screams in pain, it is the Divine’s way of saying, “I love you, my little one. Never do this again. The pain is the best way I can be assured that you will remember my message and avoid future harm.”

Our pain often results from being out of rhythm and harmony with who we really are. It is a calling to  contemplation—to reassess our lives, implement changes, move forward.

My greatest teachers were a broken back, failed surgery and stage four cancer. Thank God for these lessons. Thank God.

I invite you to have gratitude for all that is and has been in your life. Wrap your arms around all the challenges, setbacks, injuries and defeats. Within each, you will find a whisper of wisdom, a message of loving kindness from the Divine.

    Thank you for these words of wisdom in this very challenging time. I wish a blessed holiday for you and your family. . With the grace of G.d I will be attending your weekend program for the month of January and I would like to participate in one on one counseling. Could you let me know at your convenience how I arrange that? ♥Love & Gratitude, Rhonda(Chicago)
