Since I started to read, study, practice and incorporate Ho'oponopono, the word THANKS increased its value.
When I met Mabel Katz I realized even more… someone as renowned as her, after giving a 9 hours seminar to hundreds of people, stayed at the hotel lounge, signing each book, greeting each assistant and even receiving those who wanted a picture with her.
I think (personal interpretation) that it was her way of saying “thanks” to all who could be there, with the effort that was meant for everyone, (for some more, others less), but we all dedicated a weekend of our time, a financial investment, etc. and it was a "THANK YOU for attending".
The funny thing is that the THANK YOUs turned into a THANKS for sharing with us.
But even better, there was THANKS between us because of the experiences we had at that seminar. But that’s not the end... it became a THANKS to the Universe, because synchronously – (and so each could receive what was needed) - it had plotted to put us in that place, sometimes by the funniest ways (depending on the stories shared on how they got there).
To learn to be THANKFUL is a sign that we are beginning to open our eyes. I never cease to thank my TEACHERS for everything I have received, and with some, I have closer relationship, which have become friendships, as in the case of my Reiki teacher, Alicia Neumann Vanoni.
Whenever this game of giving and receiving appears, the THANKS must be part of the dialogue. One of my notes from the Reiki courses says, "Thank you for electing me as your Reiki teacher". Without students there is no way of teaching, but without teachers there is no way of learning.
When we say THANKS we say, "I accept. Lead me so the best for everyone can happen."
THANKS is not a word, it is a powerful invocation; an invocation that brings with it the right thing for us at the right time.
THANKS is more than a word, it is a magic spell that shoots the most complex networks of "coincidences" (causalities) so that everything is how it should be.
At first it was hard to give thanks for the "bad" things that happened to me sometimes. When I managed to start doing it, I began to see the "good" things that came through those bitter moments.
At some point I compared it with that phrase attributed to Jesus that we can interpret as "What is the value if we love those who love you, what is truly commendable is to love your enemies", well... It is easy to thank when everything is "going well", what makes the change is when we begin to thank for everything!!!
I DON’T EXPECT YOU TO BELIEVE ME, but to say THANKS does not take much time, effort, energy or money. Try to do it at every moment. Remember, when you're about to rage against something or someone, say THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!Unable to render embedded object: File (... You don’t need to count to a thousand to not explode because of a situation, say THANK YOU) not found.!! And I’m sure that in a while I'll be reading an email or message from you, telling me that you cannot believe what happened, at least what happened to me.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
For reading, for sharing, for being...
