Operation Gratitude

Lyman over at LymanReed.com has recently started posting something he is grateful for everyday. Knowing what I do about how focus can make all the difference in my experience, I’ve decided to borrow his idea. It was sort of funny because I talked myself into it and out of it on several times before I decided to QUIT BEING WISH WASHY AND JUST DO IT ALREADY! πŸ˜€ So here I am, making it public that I am going to (try to) post something that I am grateful for each and every day for 365 days.

In addition to it helping me focus on my life is a more positive way, there appear to be even more benefits of keeping a gratitude journal from WebMd.com:

“Maintain a gratitude journal. Emmons’ research showed that people who keep gratitude journals on a weekly basis exercise more regularly, report fewer physical symptoms, feel better about their lives as a whole, and maintain greater optimism about the future.”

I could definitely use those bonuses πŸ™‚

So for today, I am grateful for this the really cool gift my husband gave me for Christmas (see picture above). I wanted to start blogging on a more regular basis and this was a great way for me to focus into an entry. All I have to do is reach in and pull out one of the pebbles and then write about the topic of the pebble. I really think it will help me to focus more positively on my life. Some of the words include:

  • Joy
  • Heal
  • Harmony
  • Blessings
  • Wisdom
  • Peace
  • Gratitude

I was so grateful that my hubby put such thought into the gifts that he got me πŸ˜€ They were all very much ME.

Until tomorrow!

Abraham Live – 12/10/11

On December 10th, Esther did her first live workshop since Jerry croaked. I was so very happy to have been part of it. Esther and Abraham were magnificent, as always. Esther is a wonderful example of being able to align when extreme contrast is looming large. I was wondering, a little, if Jerry’s departure would have a negative effect on Esther’s ability to connect and share with us. My worry was so very unfounded. We were also treated to Jerry’s presence as well. There is no death πŸ˜€ Jerry may not be on this plane any longer but he is most definitely still available to us all.

I sat in the comfort of my living room watching. I am definitely the only human in my house who is interested in these teachings so I had the living room to myself. Well, almost all to my self. My fun loving, happy, “play with me” dog was ALL over me while I was sucked into the amazing workshop. She and her sister are never allowed on the couch but, while I was sucked in, she decided to hop up next to me and just bask in *my* connected-ness πŸ˜€ I am watching Esther and Sophie is watching me!

Jerry’s croaked

Two days ago, an email arrived in my mailbox that caused met to catch my breath. Dear ole Jerry decided it was time to get all his answers πŸ™‚ At first, I was so sad for Esther as she loves him so. My sadness was my clue that I was looking at it in a skewed way. Abraham says that if it feels bad then you are at odds with how source sees it.

I so appreciate how much Jerry helped Abraham come into our experience based on all the unending questions he asked. He is an amazing spirit who, I no doubt, will infuse the workshops with much joy and love and humor as he and Esther and Abraham frolic together with us all.

Esther and Jerry Hicks

There is great love here for both Jerry and Esther.

Esther’s email dated November 23, 2011

Dear, dear Friends,

Our sweet Jerry made his transition into Nonphysical last Friday. How sweet the Vortex is feeling to him today!

Jerry said to me when we came together over 30 years ago that given the difference in our ages that it was likely β€œthat I will cut out on you early,” to which I replied, β€œI don’t mind.” His joy of life and continual new discovery of purpose kept his life feeling fresh and we shared such joyous eagerness for life.

Over the years, Abraham has consistently insisted that there is no death. Again and again they have reminded us that there is only life and more life and more life. It has taken me some time to understand this, and I honestly must say I have not yet fully come to terms with it, but I do believe that in what we are calling Jerry’s death he is discovering the next logical step of life that Abraham has always been talking about. And at times I am catching a glimpse of the bigness of what Jerry is feeling and while I am still pretty mad at him for not sticking around longer to surprise and delight me in all the ways he has been doing throughout our 30 years together I accept fully that the next logical step of joyous life for Jerry was to be found in his re-emergence into Nonphysical.

Since 1985 it has been Jerry and Esther and Abraham and I believe with everything that I am that that has not changed. I know that Jerry will continue to be the third powerful point of the triad of Energy that makes up the Abraham experience and I am certain that his new vantage point will be, as it has always been, of advantage to us all.

I know for sure that Jerry will help me, in time, release my own personal resistance to physical death, because I will not be able to maintain that resistance and also play easily with him. And my desire to continue not only my Abraham experience but also my Jerry experience I am certain he will be the catalyst to help me do what Abraham has been trying to help us all do all along.

Once again, Jerry is out there leading the way for me. But the difference this time is that I must find the way. I am not there yet, but it is my absolute promise to myself that I will find the way, because it is the most natural thing in the world to do and because Jerry has provided for me the reason to do it.

I am eager about what is ahead and while I cannot begin to explain or even imagine the details of how it is all going to play out, I am certain that it will be fun.

I am such a fortunate girl, to have been able to play with Jerry and Abraham and all of you for so many wonderful years and I am so eager to continue doing more of the same for many more years to come. I feel certain right now that not only has nothing gone wrong, but things are going especially right. It will be different, for sure, but it will also be very, very good.

I’m feeling such love for you all, and for Abraham and most of all for Jerry. And as I have said to him a thousand or more times through the years, β€œWell isn’t life just a kick in the pants?”

Love,

Esther

My Work Space

I looked down today and realized that I had these things in front of me for months but hadn’t really stopped to look or notice them. Today I noticed πŸ™‚

Lucky Cat, Smiling Buddha, Joy, Peace and Happiness, and my Easy button – That’s how I want my everyday to flow.
