Utilizing one of the Greatest Forces in the Universe on Yourself
Gratitude is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. It allows us to see the learning behind life circumstances and when used consistently it can help bring forth more to be grateful for. Many of us on the spiritual journey use the energy of gratitude frequently. We are grateful for all that is around us and this whole crazy experience. But can we express gratitude for self?
Quite a few of us, especially empaths have negative egos. We tend to have this voice that is constantly tearing us down, putting us in our place and feeding the fears. This develops often in childhood where we were told that we shouldn’t feel a certain way, or that we feel too much, or that we must sacrifice to make someone else happy. If we had a religious background this negative ego can even have a stronger hold.
I remember too many times hearing that woman were what caused the fall of man and they were to be punished and restricted in this life. I can still hear the sermon during a mother’s day mass where the priest told everyone that woman were whores who had to be controlled lest they sin. Thankfully, they removed the priest from the parish because he certainly had no business speaking to elementary school children. I have watched males be ridiculed for showing emotion and feeling deeply. They were told to be big boys and to man up. All of these things create a very negative, criticizing inner voice. How loud this voice sound simply depends on the amount of trauma the inner child has experienced.
I was working with a client who was caught in a thought loop of “I’m not good enough” “I am not worthy” “I’m not talented enough”. We all have our own loop that we get caught in. This is the programming that keeps us in place, keeps us from becoming all we can be and it most certainly keeps us from being happy. I was working with the guides on how to advise her, what she needed to do to move beyond this loop and they suggested that she practice gratitude. They must have felt me inwardly rolling my eyes… because I was immediately told: “She needs to show gratitude towards herself”. Ok, so now we are getting somewhere.
What they explained is that being able to look at one’s self and feel gratitude is an important part of walking in one’s power. That instead of being grateful for the external, it needs to be turned inward. They provided me with an image of a steady flowing good sized river and explained that this is representative of the energy that is created by such thought patterns. The longer the thoughts have existed the greater the flow of the river the harder it is to stop and redirect the flow. With this understanding, they recommended that those of us who have negative self-talk begin to make a concentrated daily effort to rewrite the programming. They gave me the image of a beaver creating a dam, one log at a time. Eventually, there are enough logs that water begins to slow and find a new direction and create a new path to flow in. These off shoots are our opportunities to create new streams of thought, ones that support us rather than tear us down.
So with this, I challenge each of you who feel guided to write at least 3 things daily that you are grateful for about yourself for the next 30 days. Do your best to not repeat the thoughts, instead really search within to find something new.
These are I and MY statements.
I am grateful that I was able to pull together a nice dinner
I am grateful that I reacted differently than I had before
I am grateful that MY ankle didn’t swell when I turned it.
Each statement is a log in the river, so be patient as some of us have very wide and deep rivers.
I will be posting this on the FB page and asking people to share their statements. I would love if you joined in. You don’t have to post what you are grateful for each day of the 30 days, just when you feel inspired. Plus when we see what someone else has posted, it helps us to see similar qualities within ourselves. I would also love any impressions that you receive, any AH-HA moments, any times that searching for things to be grateful for within, brought up areas needing healing. Take this 30-day challenge to really begin reprogramming this area of your life into one that supports you. To join the FB page and participate click here

Thanks for what you do
This has been a life-enhancing experience – Sameena
Jenny's approach is always nonjudgmental, supportive, validating, and yet challenging in the way that needs to be done to do this work. The information that came through to her, and later to me, is invaluable for those who are seeking to feel whole, who are wanting to get into their subconscious blindspots, and to not repeat patterns that are harmful to ourselves. This has been a life-enhancing experience for me and I trust Jenny to handle this with such warmth and compassion, She is truly gifted at what she does and I highly recommend her. One of the things I love best about my sessions with Jenny is that she allows space to process the information that comes through. She does not claim to be a therapist, but what I've noticed about many spiritual workers is that they just deliver the information and that's it. While the info is helpful, I believe we need some space to process our reactions, and Jenny allows this and is compassionate about what comes up and always clarifies the information that comes through in case we misinterpret it.
As always, thank you Jenny for a beautiful experience.
I feel like a child whose world has opened up – Marlena
I feel like a child who has had the world opened up to her; and with Jenny it feels like a dear friend rooting me on, patiently enduring my questions and where I am on my journey. No matter where you are on your path, it’s beyond comforting to know its under the guidance of someone who is connected and knowledgeable, not to mention humble and funny.
Every session is a bit different, as there is lots of work to do (at least with me…lol) and it builds to work in harmony with who you are right now in your life. For those that are courageous enough to do the work, it’s an amazing journey!
She’s reminded me how to fly – Jessica
A gentle heart reaching out to be nothing but gentle presence, guidance, true friend. Jenny has this gift of displaying her love-fueled wings and sharing her experience to simply show you your own pair of wings – unveiling your unique vibration of Love and remembering, creating your essence in the Universe. She’s reminded me how to fly.
Through my Ascension Guidance courses, each week sitting across from Jenny (on my laptop screen), I’ve slowly, steadily shed and illuminated the layers cloaking my reality – built strength to create new. In the end, receiving the greatest gift… my truth, my soul, a Sister and a return home to this Universal Love humming within and without. Wishing you the best on your ever-spiraling path to love.
This was an amazing experience – Jennifer
I was very anxious about the unknown but Jenny made me feel safe and provided me with a judge free zone where she guided me every step of the way through the process. After completing this amazing journey and seeing glimpses of my past lives I was able to discuss my interpretation of what I saw and how it applied to my life today.
Jenny was able to confirm with my guides that my interpretation was accurate and I was able to begin healing things that have effected me for many lives on all levels so I could be free of the lessons once and for all. This was an amazing experience and I have considered doing it again just so I can heal myself completely.
