Tuesday, November 24, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and FIVE giveaways!

Our 'Gratitude Countdown' to Thanksgiving continues today. Even in a fast paced city like New York City, the holiday cheer begins early. Maybe it's the wonderfully decorated windows in the stores, but it just seems like there are more smiles to be seen and good wishes given to one another.

Sometimes a good deed slips into the mix, like someone holding a door when you are laden with packages, or offering to help with your bags. You may not always be able to repay that kindness in the moment, so pay it forward. Today make it a point to do one kind thing for someone. It could be anything, holding a door, leaving a generous tip, smiling at a stranger, that circle of kindness you start will eventually come back to you.

Acts of kindness give the recipient something to be grateful for but it also blesses the giver. Let's continue our 'Gratitude Countdown' to Thanksgiving by both being grateful for what we receive and by finding ways to bless each other.

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I will make it a point to express my gratitude today by being kind to others.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
