Today in The Grace Space I'm happy to introduce you to a friend of mine, Lili Barbery-Coulon. Lili is a teacher of Kundalini Yoga and the author of two books, including Reconciliation: From Body Hatred to Self-Love (Marabout).
Lili worked in the fashion and beauty industry in Paris for 15 years before completely transforming her life in 2016. The former beauty editor at French Vogue and journalist at M, the magazine of Le Monde, Lili is now fully dedicated to sharing the tools that changed her life, and I'm delighted that she's sharing them with you today here in The Grace Space!
In this episode of The Grace Space, I share with you a story about the time my poverty in gratitude was exposed. It wasn't easy to face, but it revealed the connection between my sense of self-worth and my ability to be grateful, and helped me to heal a lot of shame.
The grace of gratitude is that it's like a magnet that attracts abundance into our experience, and the truth is we may unconsciously resist feeling gratitude because we feel unworthy of all the good that it brings.
During those difficult moments where we feel isolated, abandoned or unworthy, like we have to go it alone, we disconnect from the power of gratitude. But it's a simple matter to...
Gratitude as a way of life is an evolving, growing, life-giving relationship with all that is. A gratitude that simply IS.
This constant interactive gratitude in relationship to the Power that breathes us is based on our focus. We’re focused on giving thanks, no matter what. When we get to a certain level of fluency (that just means ‘flow’ right?), we flow with gratitude.
When we enter into the flow of gratitude, it leads to perpetual increase, because gratitude is on the same frequency as abundance! The more you give thanks to the spirit of life, the more the spirit of life will give you to be thankful for.
We often think of gratitude in terms of receiving, but actually, we can come to realize a deeper truth about gratitude: gratitude is giving.
In this episode, we explore together one of Wallace Wattles' key power quotes from his classic, The Science of Getting Rich, and what this has to do with the practice of gratitude. You'll learn:
Most of us are familiar with the kind of ordinary gratitude we’re taught as children as a matter of etiquette and politeness – the importance of saying thank you when we receive something, like a gift or a compliment, for example.
But there's a whole other level of gratitude that is generative, literally creative. It has the power to open our hearts and expand our lives. It can literally change the reality that we experience. We could call this Transformative Gratitude.
In this episode, I share a personal memory of my own spontaneous experience of transformative gratitude, and how to access this level of gratitude. You'll discover:
The grace of gratitude is that feeling of being overwhelmed by the goodness of life. We have a sense of being divinely guided, and that everything we’ve ever experienced has led us to this moment of grace. We know that all’s right with the world and that we are truly blessed.
But even so, there are moments when things get more challenging and our rhythms are out of sync, where feeling grateful seems more difficult.
And yet, as we learn to lean into spiritual law, we recognize that the moments of discord in our lives are always a golden opportunity to transform our consciousness. And one way we can leverage these moments is through the practice of gratitude.
In this first episode in our series on the Grace of Gratitude, I give you ways to make it an active practice for yourself, so you can experience the magic and miracles that occur when we live gratefully as our basic attitude.
Here are some of the things I cover in...
