THE THREE BLESSINGS OF BEING THANKFUL




    There are three awesome things that happen to us when we are truly thankful for the blessings in our lives... and they are:

1. The more grateful you are for the things that you have, both big and small, the more things you find in life to be thankful for.

2. When you are truly thankful; it creates a sense of joy and strength in your life and the things that once weighed heavy upon you or upset you in life, don't seem so very important or heavy anymore. You have a greater sense of peace.

3. Things just seem to go smoother in life and turn out right. Life is less of a struggle and strain, everything just seems to fall in place at the right time. It's almost as if you're living a charmed life.

* When giving thanks and being grateful for the blessings in your life, don't be overly superficial with it. Of course it's proper to give thanks for our jobs, our homes, our new cars and any extra cash that found its way into our hands. But also be thankful for the little things; another day to experience life, another evening at the dinner table with your family, maybe the weather was just the way you like it on a particular day, maybe you read something in a book that expanded your way of thinking? There are so many things to be thankful for in life, it just doesn't always have to be about the material things we have acquired. And that, as being truly thankful.

NEW SPIRITUAL READING PAGE




    Today I would like to introduce my new webpage for ordering spiritual readings and healing sessions. The pages is connected to this blog and is simply called, The Ark of Gabriel Reading Page. It outlines how to order a reading, what readings and healing sessions entail and even an article at the bottom of the page entitled, Demystifying Spiritual Readings.

    I used to have a similar page attached to the blog, but deleted it when I created another webpage elsewhere. Since then, some people have asked me to create another readings page that was attached to the blog; and so without further ado, here it is.

    You can view The Ark of Gabriel Reading Page by clicking the link below...

THE ARK OF GABRIEL?




    Well, he changed the name of the blog once again LOL! A word of explanation for that: before Christmas 2016, I was playing with the idea of changing the name of the blog after my spiritual journey that I wrote about a month or so ago on the blog. One of the names I came up with was, The Ark of Gabriel... The name comes from some sort of Ark, like the Ark of the covenant in the Old Testament in the Bible, that the Archangel Gabriel supposedly gave to the Prophet Muhammad during his time on earth. I heard about the Ark of Gabriel in some articles that I had read online and also on YouTube. I thought it was a great name, and I always had an affinity for the Archangel Gabriel. So I wrote the name down in a small notebook which got shelved on one of my bookshelves and completely forgotten about. I just recently rediscovered the notebook with the name written on one of its pages. I still love the name for the blog, and so over the weekend, the idea came to fruition.

YOU ARE A SPIRITUAL FLAME




    The life experienced in this world is neither the beginning nor the end of your journey.
 
You are in this world to rediscover yourself, to more fully realize and remember your divinity. This world grants you a unique perspective. In this world you have the opportunity to directly experience your divine self through the context of time and space.
 
Each event in your life offers you an opportunity to further realize and remember your divinity through the lens of third dimensional experience. You have the option to take advantage of the opportunities presented to you, you also have the option to allow yourself to be blind to your opportunities.
 
This world grants you the ability to forget that which would otherwise be unforgettable. This world allows you the chance to temporarily forget your divinity, to forget your light, your truth.
 
In the forgetting, you then have the opportunity to rediscover yourself – your True Self, from the new and unique perspective which can only be attained through directly experiencing your life’s events.
 
Previous to your life in this world, you could not help but clearly see your own light and you had no choice but to constantly know the splendor of your divinity. As wonderful as that may be, it is only one perspective, only one vantage point. In order to know yourself from more than this absolute view point, you began your journey which led you here, to this world, this life.
 
If you were not consciously aware of why you are here, this is your explanation. This also explains the tremendous opportunities that are available to you in this life. You need only make the choice to take advantage of your personal opportunities.
 
Your life in this world can be viewed as a spiritual flame. It matters not exactly how long the flame burns, what matters most is the intensity and spiritual vitality of the flame while it is lit.
 
Therefore, the key message here is to allow your spiritual flame to burn brightly. Realize that this world is neither the beginning nor the end of your journey. This mentality helps you to live each and every day to the fullest, to take advantage of the opportunities presented to you, to rediscover your divinity and to choose the path of empowerment instead of the path of self limitation and ignorance.
 
There is much more to your story than you may be aware of at this point in time.
