Day 35 - Shechina Sh’b Hod: Flow of Gratitude
The earth is filled with glory.
Our lives are filled with goodness.
As we notice the blessings and give thanks,
we create a dwelling place for the Most High.
Practice for today:
Let these be the first words you say upon awakening:
Modah ani—I am grateful.
Throughout the day, pause ten times and offer gratitude.
Give thanks for the food you eat, for a beautiful sight or sound.
Offer praise for an insight, a moment of connection, a moment of love.
End the day by saying, “I am grateful for….”
Offer praise for all that is.
Stand in service and offer praise.
Be in each moment and offer praise.
Let your soul sing, feel all the goodness and offer praise.
(Psalm 135: 1-3)
