Gratitude is not just a feeling we occasionally have when something good happens to us. It is a practice that leads to greater happiness and deeper fulfillment in our lives!
The foundation of shamanism, the world’s oldest spiritual healing tradition, is gratitude. Shamans are continually expressing their gratitude for life, for the elements, the seasons, the cycles, the directions, the universe and the spirit that lives in all things. Shamans believe that they draw their power from their gratitude for and communion with the natural world.
When we walk in gratitude we bring a sense of wonder and curiosity to everything around us. We realize the enormous abundance that is always present in our lives. When we deepen our appreciation for all we see, we get a sense of our inter-connectedness with the all beings in the web of life.
