How the Gratitude Vibration Brought a Happy Tablet

Are you feeling grateful today?

Here are some fun facts for you: gratitude not only helps your immune system to be healthier, but it also brings abundance into your life.

Recently I was working with increasing my gratitude, and I created a Gratitude~Up community page on this website. You are invited to visit the Gratitude~Up page anytime to post your gratitude lists. Sharing your gratitude gives it more power.

While I was working on my gratitude, one of my brothers offered to send me a tablet, which was like a miraculous answer to my prayers for more abundance coming into my life. You see, my old laptop no longer allows me to access sites like PayPal, so my options were becoming limited. But now, with my happy tablet, I am back in business, both literally and metaphorically! With the tablet I was able to take the fun photo* attached to this article, and also to create a Donate page on this site.

I can’t promise that you’ll receive a tablet if you increase your gratitude, but what I can tell you is this: when you are feeling grateful, that feeling state creates a powerful energy of gratitude, and that gratitude vibration opens your energy field to allow more abundance to flow into your life.

Please visit the Gratitude~Up page and share your gratitude list today!

May your happiness and abundance increase!

Refreshing AND Deepening

This is a follow-up to the blog I posted on Friday, “StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Prayer: May You Feel Refreshed” in which I wrote about how your intentions and guided imagery regularly need to be refreshed.

Perhaps you’ve already read a blog I posted in January called “Radiance & Darkness” in which I talked about how opposing forces can be simultaneously true. Well, I remembered that after posting the blog on Friday, thus I’m writing this follow-up.

While some prayers and visualizations get stale and need to be refreshed, the opposite is also true! Some prayers and spiritual practices can be done over and over and over, and you go deeper and deeper with them each time. Your deeper mind loves newness, and it also thrives on repetition. Both are true. As you try out the various practices suggested in these blogs, you will know when to let some go, and when to dive deeper into others. When you listen to your inner wisdom you will know when to refresh and when to deepen.

At the beginning of my new book I offer a section called Radiance Rising, which is an extended list of spiritual practices you can do while reading the book and beyond. One of the practices is a forty-verse chant called the Hanuman Chalisa (CD with versions of that chant by Krishna Das: Flow of Grace), and I have been singing that prayer daily for almost ten years. Talk about repetition!

After the section with spiritual practices, I tell the magical story of Rama and Sita, in my fantastical version of the Ramayana. Many people, including myself, study the Ramayana as a spiritual practice. Currently I am studying my own version on Sundays, and it really uplifts me for the following week.

I have been studying this ancient story from India for almost fifteen years, and while reading nearly one dozen versions, I have gone deeper into the meanings and I have also realized many applications to my daily life. When you read this book, you will recognize your own wisdom through the heroes of the tale.

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Prayer: May You Feel Refreshed

 

May your mind and spirit feel refreshed.

May you be guided to look for the good and to be the good.

May your weekend be blessed with the radiant light of the sun, moon, stars, and crystals.

 

Have you noticed that your prayers and visualizations regularly need to be refreshed? You might attribute this to the internet information age shortening your attention span, but actually it is because your deeper mind and your highest soul both live in the present moment… And, the present moment is ever new! So your mind and spirit crave newness. That is why I regularly share new prayers and new visualizations with you here in these blog articles.

With your intentions, prayers, and guided imagery exercises, a good rule to follow is to do them until they feel stale or boring, and then change to new ones. How often you will need to refresh them will vary, so just watch how they make you feel as you say them or think them.

May this weekend be truly refreshing for you!

May you be blessed by the Forces of Goodness.

May All Beings Be Happy!
