Thanksgiving 2012 – Gratitude, Abundance and the Divine


My name is Henry Beyer and today is Thanksgiving. Most people I know have a favorite holiday. For some it’s Halloween, for others it’s the 4th of July or Christmas or New Years. They all have their reasons. For me it is Thanksgiving. This has not always been the case though.

From early adolescence into adulthood I suffered from a limiting belief. I believed that there was only so much to go around. I had a scarcity mindset. I was prone to comparing what other people had to what I had or didn’t have. I often found myself experiencing an overwhelming feeling of lack.

Then in my mid-thirties this started to change. I learned about gratitude and the power of giving thanks for all the things and people I had in my life…

And sure enough my life began to change.

For a period of about six months, with Anthony Robbins echoing in my head, I would take a 20 minute walk every morning. I would give thanks for everything and everyone I had in my life. Not long after that I got a new job and moved to a new town.

In short I changed my life.

That is the power of Gratitude. That is the power giving thanks for all we have in our lives. Gratitude is a pathway to the unlimited abundance of the universe. Instead of focusing on lack and all that is wrong with our lives, Gratitude places our attention on all that is right and good. This shift reveals the abundance of our world and universe.

I recently read a short book about the life of Jesus Christ and the message he brought:

 “The Kingdom of God is within you.”

The abundance of the universe is our birth right if we just believe. All you desire is within you now. The abundance of the universe is waiting for you to accept it into you life.

For me this is the gift of Thanksgiving – a day for giving thanks. It reminds us to give thanks for all that we have. When we do this we open ourselves to receiving the abundance of the universe. That which is our divine right, if we only believe.

My wish for you is that you take a private moment today to connect with your higher self and give thanks for the abundance in your life. Warmest wishes on this special day from my family to yours.

Happy Thanksgiving!
