It is traditional to wear white.
To make a garland of flowers for your hair.
The children each carry a small basket of fruit decorated with flowers.
We meet with the other families to celebrate, dance and sing the traditional songs and I am full of gratitude for the beauty of the tradition, but more so, for the abundance that is so present in my life.
It is Shavuot, the festival that celebrates the first fruits and the revelation of the Torah (the five books of the Old Testament).
It’s like we are granted the most unbelievable abundance and then given guidance as to how to live it!
I had not planned to write about gratitude and abundance, but I realize that it is not just about awareness. It is a practice on a daily basis that is so relevant to my business as well as my personal life.
The presence of gratitude and awareness of abundance is so important to business success.
When you are truly thankful, appreciate what you have and when you believe that we live in an abundant universe;
- you are a positive and powerful force in the world
- you attract more of the same
- you are happy
- you are fulfilled
- you are at peace
- your ideal clients will find you
- your business will thrive
I had not planned to write about gratitude and abundance but by chance (or perhaps by perfect design) a wonderful gift appeared in my inbox this morning. A gift from Nic Askew’s ‘Soul Biographies’, and it really struck a deep chord in me, I think it will in you too.
