Be willing to see the perfection in the imperfection.
One of the most powerful tools of transformation and self-awareness is gratitude. When we choose to be thankful for all that unfolds in our experience, we demonstrate willingness to take personal responsibility for our state of consciousness in the present moment.
In the midst of a challenge, purposely choose to pause and create a moment of stillness. Step into empowerment by saying something like, “I am grateful for my anger/frustration/emotional reactivity… this situation is meant to help me heal and grow and even though I may not be able to see clearly just yet, I know it has great value for me.” The act of utilizing gratitude immediately begins to transform the energy.
Conversely, it’s equally important to remember that expressing gratitude when things are flowing well amplifies our awareness of the blessings that constantly surround us and draws in even more for which we can be grateful.
