A Thankful way to be with Family this Holiday

ThanksgivingBurge-1As I am sitting in Kuala Lumpur feeling blessed and thankful for all I am and what I have accomplished, I think of all of the people that have made a difference in my life.

I often wonder if they feel the same way about me. I know that the energy of giving and receiving is the same and I have come to the realization that Thanksgiving is just that…Giving and Receiving Thanks at the same time.

So many people at the holidays get together and slip back into the way they were treated as kids and parents and they have triggers that come up with the old family dynamic.

Remember, whenever there is love present, anything unlike love can come up for the purpose of healing. If you use these teachable moments at the holidays and remember there is love present and sometimes you may be triggered by old issues for the purpose of healing them.

As you are giving and receiving thanks for all you have and will have, remember to keep your egos checked at the door. You are the demonstration for everyone to show them how to open their hearts and see each other as little children. We all want to be loved and wanted and appreciated for who we are with no strings attached.

When you are giving, there is also a sense of receiving a warm feeling in your heart if the other person receives your gifts. And vice versa, when someone gives you something, a smile, a gift, a kind word, and you receive it , you are giving that warm feeling back. This is the cycle of giving and receiving. You cannot have one without the other.

This holiday, I am saying thank you and you’re welcome to all of the people in my life. I want you all to know that without you, there is a hole in the Universe and there is a hole in my heart. You have filled my heart with joy and you have made a difference in my life. BE GRATEFUL for you, because when you look in the mirror, that little, innocent, precious child is still in there smiling back at you.
