In my past articles I have tried to project the message that you create the world around based on the energy you project. If you can effectively focus and project that energy you can effectively create an immediate environment around you that feels safe and good and satisfying to you.
If you could project a positive, appreciative and sincere energy around you, to all people and things around you, imagine the effect it would have on your life. This month I want to share with you a mantra that attempts to help you express just that.
Thank you for sharing with my life.
This mantra started out as the mantra meal prayer. If you grew up in a household where there was a prayer of thanks before the family meal, then you have the experience of what this mantra was originally based on being thankful for the food before you, understanding that the life that is the food before you, is soon to become part of your life, your body, your physical essence. Do you want to project an energy that it is not good enough, doesn’t look satisfying, delicious, appetizing, or isn’t a good source of nourishment? Or an energy of some inadequacy that then immediately becomes part you? Sort of like an immediate karmic payback.
Now start thinking of everything else around you in your life. Your car. Is your car a wonderful machine that serves you, without question, on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – or a piece of crap car that I hope gets me to work tomorrow? What about the furniture around you? Same story? You will manifest the expectations of the energy you project.
Become appreciative and thankful for all things that are a part of your life. The more appreciation you project, the more that will come back to you. My suggestion is to start with this when you sit to eat and look at your meal and say it three times, “thank you for sharing with my life”. Envision a miniature version of you becoming part of items in front of you. When you sit behind the wheel of your car, say it, mean it. Think about it when you give something away or throw something out. Even though it may no longer be able to serve your needs, it did for time. It was a part of your life. Be appreciative of that service.
Thank you for reading this article. Thank you for sharing with my life.
