A key factor in aligning our energy with love, abundance, and peace is truly appreciating what we already have. Today, my focus is on the people in my life who show up. I feel the tears welling up as I start to think about how truly blessed I am to have so many amazing people in my life. I have people who have never met me showing up to support me in all kinds of ways, and I’ve been blessed to have opportunities to show up for others. I was supposed to be starting my book tour when things started shutting down and I wasn’t alone. I met so many authors on-line who were in the same boat, so we showed up for each other and it was absolutely beautiful. What could have been a very isolating experience wasn’t, because we came together. We have been celebrating each other ever since. I’ve actually met so many people since the pandemic in Zoom sessions and Facebook groups, people I probably would have never thought to connect to if it weren’t for this pandemic. I’ve gotten closer with family members near and far. I’ve also got to spend time with my two teenagers who were usually running around non-stop before the pandemic gave us this time together. Abundance in my relationships is off the charts, and for that I’m so grateful. I am not taking for granted the love that is extended to me and love I am so grateful to give. I’m so grateful to have a partner who despite how far away he is, he knows how to show up daily. I hope you will join me today celebrating the people who show up for you.
In order to create more abundance around our relationships, we have to show appreciation for the people who are already in our lives. If we don’t appreciate the efforts people make, we can easily start living in the energy of lack by focusing our energy on what people aren’t doing or what we wished they would do. I’ve seen this in my own life and other people’s lives. When we focus our energy around fear, lack, and separations in our relationships, we create and maintain cycles of chaos. Even when I was just beginning to find myself near the end of a toxic relationship, I made sure I to write things I was grateful for because it helped me to keep raising my energy to love, abundance, and peace, which is what gave me my strength to leave and permanently shut the door out of love for myself. I didn’t sink to a level that would take me down to create the same pattern with someone else or go back to him. If we want healthier relationships in our lives, this practice is so important! It’s not about what someone else is doing to us. It’s about the energy we are carrying within us—that is what we are responsible for! When our energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace that is what we attract to our lives. People who aren’t in that energy may distance themselves, leave, or rise-up to meet our energy, but whatever they do is their business. Being responsible and accountable for what we are putting out into the world is our business.
With Love, Gratitude, and Peace,
