14 Oct Daily Message ~ Monday October 14, 2013
Have you ever noticed how delightful your partnerships are when they first begin? They flow, they are accepting, you are filled with the wonder of the other person, and your heart swells with love for them. But, invariably, over time, the “bloom is off the rose” and before you know it, you start arguing and finding the other person’s faults. What happened? How could you go from finding nothing but perfection in the person to barely being able to stand being around them?
The answer is simple, Dear Ones. You haven’t fallen out of love. You have fallen out of gratitude. If you put yourself on high alert for all the wonderful traits your beloved has and choose to concentrate on and express gratitude for those many aspects that made you fall in love in the first place, you will find yourself falling back in love with your partner and using energies that will help your relationship continue to bloom and grow.
Some of you say, “Well, he/she doesn’t appreciate me! I’ll be thankful for them if they start to appreciate me.” If you are feeling that way you are missing the point. While it is certainly nice to feel other’s gratitude, and we do encourage you to share it with others because it feels good for everyone involved, it is a tool you use for universal feedback, not a gift you bestow upon others. It is your power tool to help energetically announce and create what you want more of. It is how you choose the energies you wish to live with and experience, and no one else can give that to you. It is from BEing grateful that you will draw to you the gratitude you seek.
Like everything else, the shifting of energies must come from within in order to have the profound and lasting effect you seek. So celebrate the blessings that are all around you, Dear Ones. It is the easiest way to bring desired flow back into any area of your life. ~Archangel Gabriel
