By Shanta Gabriel.
The Gabriel Message Card for this Week:
Take time to bless that which you have and ask for what you want.
To bless means to confer energy on whatever person or situation you are focused upon. It is a wonderful way to bring Divinity into our daily lives, and this practice honors the Oneness within us at all times. And even if the reality of where we are is not what we like, it is important to bring conscious awareness to the place of “what is” so that we can expand our perceptions to what is possible.
It is important to recognize and honor what is truly manifesting in our lives. It is a recognition and gratitude for the abundance that is there for us to notice when we focus our attention. Without that level of honoring what we have already in our lives and being grateful, we are not in a place of magnetism for what we want to experience.
For many years I seemed to be waiting for something else to change before I could be happy. I kept thinking that soon I would have the situation in my work I had been wanting, or the people I lived with would finally change and then all would be harmonious. This led me to living in the future, out of balance and out of touch with my present life. It was not a resourceful state for me to be in, and when the life I was leading went through a very radical change, I was not prepared to lose everything I thought was important to me. It could be called involuntary simplification, but the Universe will use anything it can to get our attention.
