The Transformational Power of Gratitude

The Transformational Power of Gratitude
by Quado & Carrie Hart

Now is the time to enter the chrysalis. Take with you all of your experiences, your childhood, your karma, any lessons you believe you are here to learn. Take it all with you.

Now let spirit guide you, let spirit weave the protective, silken cocoon and then fill it with gratitude. Then let the miracle occur. Let the old self dissolve away, leaving only a grateful memory of what was, now transformed into a deep and compassionate understanding. Let the gratitude become who you are, the gratitude for all that has been, all that you are, and all that you are now ready to become.

Immerse yourself in gratitude, for this is the liquid that will dissolve the old hurts and ways of being. This is the healer, this gratitude, deep loving gratitude for life itself. Let everything dissolve and dissolve into gratitude until you are only your most essential self.

All the past is dissolved. All the pain, the hurts, the old habits and ways of being, all dissolved. And you feel now your soul entering you and building your form anew, building and evolving, shaping you into what you are meant to be, the form of your truth, the form of those deep, deep dreams you dared not even express aloud, all of this is part of the emerging form.

And know that it is all related, that the experiences you have had gave you the strength to become what you are truly here to become. The relationships have taught you what you need to know. All that went before has given you the perfect ingredients to form the life you are meant to live, expressing your greatness and expanding into your glory.

And then, when you have reshaped yourself into your truth, begin to chew your way out of the cocoon. Gnaw your way through the fears and doubts that no longer serve any purpose. Feel how spirit has removed them from you and put them into the casing that is now ready to be discarded, for once and for all. Feel how you can push through the olds ways of being and begin to see the light of day.

The sun is shining brightly as you emerge, new and shimmering with the moisture of birth and newness, emerging now in your full glory.

Ah, yes, feel the sun. Feel the warmth as you spread your wings wide.

See and know and feel your beauty. The furry caterpillar is no more. This old form was necessary, but it is no more. You have crawled slowly and painfully through the early stages of life, gone into the cocoon and transformed yourself through love and gratitude, and now you emerge in full beauty and glory, your greatness shining brightly as you stretch out your gorgeous wings and begin to fly.

Ah, yes, feel how effortless it is now to fly. The breeze lifts you higher and higher as you soar up into the sky, showing your glory to the world.

Yes, this is the moment. This is the time. And all of it, the caterpillar, the chrysalis transformation and the struggle to emerge in newness, all of it is a part of the journey to make you into the gorgeous creature that you truly are, free and riding the wind.
