Being Grateful for Where You Are

BEAUTIFUL! This week’s message from Shanta Gabriel…

Being Grateful for Where You Are

We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages to provide insight and inspiration that we can apply every day of our lives.

For this week’s issue, the message from Archangel Gabriel suggests a new way at integrating situations in your life.

The Gabriel Message card for this week

All that you have learned and all that has happened
to you brought you to where you are now. Be grateful.

Shanta GabrielIn an interesting demonstration of Angelic intervention, this card was chosen after my asking for the perfect message for all concerned and also one that I had not done before. After I received this card, I remembered that two people I respect had given me the same compliment about my work the day before. I had forgotten they even said it. This did not allow me to fully receive their compliments into my consciousness so I could acknowledge myself for how far I have come. I realized in that moment how important my ability to receive would be in 2016.

As much as we were hoping for a jack rabbit start to 2016, it feels like we are somewhat coerced by retrograde planets to review our lives and integrate our past into our present in harmonious ways.

The 12 Holy Nights gave us an opportunity to go back through 2015 and gather information, remembering the sometimes vague activities and feelings of a year that was often challenging and tumultuous.

Doing this integration before setting the new intentions for 2016 was an interesting process for me. I did have to admit at the end that I learned a tremendous amount and grew as a human blending divinity into manifest form within me during the last year.

This year it is my intention to relax and breathe more deeply while I learn to receive from Life. I know that I can expand into this receptivity with the support of the Angelic Dimensions. I look forward to experiencing the new levels of Harmony and Beauty that are available to us all in this new year. Archangel Gabriel is telling me that 2016 is a year rich in Inspiration. I love that idea and have agreed to spend more time receiving from the deep well of guidance that we all have available for us in this precious time.

It feels so expansive when I am inspired, as though anything is possible. Inspiration opens my mind and heart. It also raises my vibrational frequencies so I have an expanded perspective on my life and feel much lighter. I can also listen more deeply to my Higher Self, and feel more willing to do that. When I take this sacred time regularly, there is clarity about when to take action in all areas of my life. I feel like I really need the nourishment of Inspiration every day. Without inspiration, my intention for 2016 is to wait before I go into action.

This is such a powerful teaching for living in 5D for me. This process brings in a beautiful element of the Sacred Feminine when I wait for guidance to be received before I bring action to life. My Soul’s voice active within my Higher Self communicates through my heart. When I pay attention to this voice, my heart’s intelligence speaks with greater authority, and I am able to hear its wisdom with more clarity. My heart inspires me into action, and I now allow myself the space to receive in order to experience the Divine Timing inherent in this process.

Here is my prayer for the New Year:

Divine Presence,

Thank you for bringing me through this past year with such Grace and Love. Please help me to integrate all that I learned within my being so I can use the lessons to empower my life in 2016. I know that even when I am not actively paying attention, you are working with me, and guiding my way, and I AM Grateful.

I willingly commit to listening to my Soul’s voice with greater dedication. I ask my Higher Self to help me pay attention to the guidance that is being offered from Source. Help me to remember that I need to slow down to receive the wisdom within me.

I AM now creating space within me to receive in a greater way ~ receiving your guidance, receiving more love, and receiving all the support that is available to me in all areas of my life. I recognize clearly that I AM never alone. Help me to be more aware and perceive the presence of my support system on Earth as it is in Heaven.

For my life and all that I have learned, I am grateful and blessed. And so it is.

The Gabriel Messages #56
All that you have learned and all that has happened to you
brought you to where you are now. Be grateful.
Dear One,

You have come to a time when acknowledgment of yourself is necessary. There needs to be a truce between the warring factions of your mind. One part of you is diligently watching to make sure that you never make a mistake. When you inevitably do, it leaps to chastise and remind you about all the ways you are wrong. This judgmental mind is never happy with your progress. Nothing you do could ever be good enough. It is relentless in its pursuit of your wrongness. It is time to tell this part of your mind to take a vacation. It needs to lose itself in the beauty of nature, and leave the rest of you alone.

You are on this earth plane to learn. Making mistakes is one way that people learn lessons. It is impossible to do things right and perfectly every time. The Divine Presence does not expect this of you. What is necessary is that you follow your heart and your inner guidance. There is much wisdom within you. But it is often like a small voice calling in the wilderness, drowned out by critical and judgmental thoughts. Yet it is listening to this quieter voice that would most serve you in your life. This voice is telling you that you are a child of a loving God, and that there is nothing you can do which could stop the flow of Infinite Love.

There is also society’s voice that demands you live up to certain expectations. When you are in alignment with your Higher Self, there is a flow of love-filled energy that allows you to step into a way of being which is totally connected to the Divine Power within and around you. This energy is inviting you to be rather than do. You are being asked to let go of the confining armor of society’s expectations and of your judgmental mind that has been conditioned by it. You are being asked to look with compassion upon yourself, and to notice the many things you are learning at this time. It is a powerful time on Earth when, although there is great suffering and fear, there are also incredible opportunities to break through into great love and peace.


What you see in the world is colored by how you see yourself. Can you see that, in the past, you took the steps that seemed appropriate for you at the time? Do you notice that there were times when your heart told you to make a certain choice, but for various reasons, you did not follow your intuition? All these experiences have assisted you in learning lessons necessary for your growth. It is time to totally forgive yourself for behaving in ways you judge as wrong or bad. You would have made different choices had you known better, but you acted from your awareness at that time. Forgive yourself and get on with your life. Do not waste any more precious time in self-criticism. You are making choices in this moment to create your future. All that you have is this moment. Let the past go, and do not fear the future. Know that you are exactly where you need to be for your perfect lessons in life. It is up to you to lift the mantle of judgment and allow yourself to grow into who you would most like to be.

Imagine acting in ways that bring you joy. Imagine your world surrounded in love. Know that you are a good, honest and caring person and give yourself the loving respect you deserve. Your imagination can set a powerful intention for your life when you use it to visualize a new and more harmonious way to be. When you set an intention, all the forces of the universe align themselves to manifest that which you visualize. It is wise to be careful how you use this powerful tool. You do receive whatever you focus on, if your focus and desire are strong enough. It is a Universal Law.

Remember to be grateful for your life. It is an incredible gift to be in a physical body. With this body you can do so many things to enjoy this world of beauty. Be grateful for all that you are learning now, even if, at times, it feels uncomfortable. Be grateful for all that you have, even if it does not seem to be enough.  Gratitude awakens your mind to the greater truth within all things, and lifts your spirit into appreciation and joy.

So remember your message from Archangel Gabriel today:

All that you have learned and all that has happened to you
brought you to where you are now. Be grateful.

Be Thankful…Today and Every Day

Wishing each and every one of you great goodness, vibrant wholeness, joy and peace today and every day of your life. I am grateful for your support and your interest in Emboldened Heart. Please enjoy this beautiful Thanksgiving message from Shanta Gabriel – Blessings, Malinda


Dear Ones,

It is nearly Thanksgiving in the U.S., marking the official beginning of the holiday season. Know that in this unique time of the year there is an awakening in you of the spirit of Gratitude. It is the true essence of Thanksgiving. When you can immerse yourself in the flow of pure Gratitude, it catalyzes new abundance in every area of your life. Gratitude can provide a new containment field for your heart to open into. It is a true gift for yourself when you live in Gratitude. The power of giving thanks can help to lift you above the appearance of disharmony so that a new life emerges within you, opening doors to amazing possibilities you never imagined.

Your deepest dreams are being awakened now and your heart is being offered an opportunity to create manifestation of your deepest Soul’s longings. When you open to these desires that have the potential to fulfill you in massive ways, an energy begins to work in you that you have never experienced. It is like the unlocking of the gateway to a new dimension with thanksgiving as the key.

The creation of new attitudes of thanksgiving in your life attracts new streams of light-filled energy to bless all that is honored in this way. When a blessing of thanksgiving is made in any moment, it confers light-filled Divine energy upon the person who sends it, as well as the situation being blessed. In challenging times it may seem difficult to find something to feel grateful for. In spite of this difficulty, one way to create a positive change in your life is to give thanks for what you have now. You can even give thanks in advance for what you want to create. This allows a shift in your perceptions so that you begin to attract new beneficial energy into your life.

Gratitude is an attitude that can profoundly change your consciousness. When you live your life in thanksgiving, it can affect your being at a biological level, training your mind and body to live in a higher state of health and well-being.

When you find nothing else, you can give thanks for just being alive so your soul will evolve. It is a gift to be in a human body and your body is a miraculous instrument. Consider the fact that you have a heart within you that needs no conscious assistance on your part to continue beating. Remember that you don’t have to tell your digestive system to do its work.

All of these body parts are functioning in a wondrous Divine plan of perfection. When you turn your attention to these systems within your body, when you begin to give thanks for the incredible processes that continue 24 hours a day within you, they will function at a higher level. Your focus of attention with gratitude and blessings will bring more light and strength into your vital organs. For extra energy, consider filling these organs with a healing color such as pink or green, which brightens them with Divine Light. For fun you can then imagine a smile on a body part such as your liver or your heart. This will not only bless your organs, it will lighten your mind.

Gratitude is the Attitude that will take you into your Heart

Consider the idea that your thoughts are like prayers reaching out into the Universal flow of life. When you use your thoughts consciously, they become prayers that shift your perspective so you can see a greater picture of what is actually going on in your life. Prayers of gratitude are very powerful, and stimulate an increased flow of spiritual energy into every situation. This force can create miraculous change for good in your life. It may take a little effort to find something to be grateful for when you are feeling down, but prayers of thanksgiving can help create a beautiful shift in your mind when you do so.

It is vitally important for your future to nurture compassion for yourself, the mistakes you made as you were learning about life, and forgiveness for the person you were in the past. Be grateful for all that you have learned and all that you are. This act is a good beginning for a peace filled and happy future. You can open new doors for tomorrow with your grateful thoughts today.

No matter how it feels, you are never alone. You are here on earth to remember your connection to the Spiritual Presence in your life. You are meant to live a happy, abundant life with deep fulfillment. In order to do this, it is necessary to step out of the challenges life presents and into the flow of God’s love, which will bring you more creative solutions. There is one place where you can always go to feel the power of Divine Love, and that is in your heart. Gratitude is the attitude that will take you into your heart. It does not matter if you see nothing in your life for which to feel grateful, just the act of giving thanks opens a door in your heart to allow Divine Love in.

Sometimes it seems as though prayer is difficult or there may be negative associations with organized religion from childhood. Perhaps some suggestions for prayers of thanksgiving can be useful. Here are some possibilities for prayers that may help you to lift your thoughts and connect your heart to the essence of Gratitude. You can choose one or more that resonate with you and use them as a spiritual practice for the day. Masters suggest 21 days of a practice to create a new habit within your brain.

A Thanksgiving Prayer

Divine Presence,

I AM grateful for the Beauty and Power of the living Earth that sustains all life and blesses all who are fortunate to live in this beautiful world. I give thanks that all beings are awakening to these gifts.

Thank you for this day. Help me to see the blessings in my life, and learn the lessons given to me to learn. Show me what I need to know in order to grow into a more kind and loving human being, and take care of my responsibilities with Grace and Ease. Help me to share the gifts you have given me in a way that adds more value to the world.

Thank you for helping me move with great Clarity and Certainty. Thank you for inspiring my heart centered action in every area of my life.

I AM grateful for physical, mental and emotional Health and Well-Being. I recognize Wellness as my most empowered attribute and it blesses every area of my life.

Thank you for abundant demonstrations in my bank account and the financial ability to save, spend and support others. I AM grateful that my work fulfills me on all levels.

Thank you for my mind that is inspired and creative. Thank you for helping me to be open to new ideas that can bring good into my life. Thank you for my amazing body that is strong and flexible, and for the organs within it that are functioning with perfection. Bless each cell and fiber of my being so that it is filled with your Divine Light.

Thank you for the forgiveness growing in my heart and the compassion within me for the person I am right now. Help me to also have compassion and understanding for others as they walk their own path in life.

I AM thankful for the new awakenings of Love and Abundance all over the world in the hearts of each person embodied at this time. Thank you for helping me to live my life in Harmony and Well Being, and to be a radiant light for Divine Love in the world.

For these and all my blessings, I say, “Thank You God.”

May this time of Thanksgiving fill your heart with a new awakening to the Loving Presence within all things and bless every area of your life with pure Gratitude.

So be it. Be it so. Amen.

THE MESSAGE FROM WATER, Children Version (English)

It’s the project that Masaru Emoto launched in hope that this planet earth will be peaceful forever where everyone can live happily. The peace project goal is to educate the truth of water to children all around the world by distributing picture book of THE MESSAGE FROM WATER to children for free so that the entire world will be a sustainable, beautiful, and peaceful place.

Activities of Emoto Peace Project

  • Provide education in conjunction with the importance of water to children and people around children.
  • Organize events and seminars with the purpose to educate the importance of water.
  • Research and development related to water, and support and provide information on their results.
  • Sell products such as books, CDs, DVDs, and other products to educate people about the importance of water.

Through more than 20 years of research on water, Masaru Emoto discovered the followings:

  • There are crystals in water molecules when you freeze water and observe it with a microscope.
  • The forms of crystals depend on the information that water receives from outside such as words, music, thoughts, prayers, and so on.
  • Water makes beautiful crystals upon receiving positive information, on the other hand, the crystals are ugly when receiving negative information.
  • The word “Thank you” has a good energy, and the word “You fool” has a bad energy. Ignoring is denying its existence and gives the worst effect.

The children’s book of “The Message from Water” explains above findings with water crystal photos. You will see the reactions of water after it has been subjected to different kinds of thoughts. Thoughts of the destructive or negative kind form very different crystals than the crystals which form after being sent thoughts of love, appreciation, and gratitude.

Dr. Emoto learned that the revelation that our thoughts can influence water has profound implications, not only for our own health but for the well-being of our planet.

All the supporters around the world help us translate the book into their local languages and distribute their language versions to children for free so that all children in the world will be able to read and learn the importance of water.

Japanese, English, Spanish (2 kinds), Colombian version, Polish, Bulgarian, German (2 kinds), Indonesian, Turkish, French, Russian, Hebrew, Norwegian, Mongolian, Formosan (Taiwanese), Chinese, Portuguese, Albanian, Slovenian, Macedonian, Serbian, Greek, Rumanian, Burmese

Brasilia, Brazil

EMOTO PEACE PROJECT is an effort to make the children’s book, THE MESSAGE FROM WATER, reach all children on earth. Through this book, they will learn that we are all water ourselves and that water is supporting our life. Through water crystal photos, they will learn that all water on this planet earth has information, and the form of water crystals differs depending on the information that water has. They will let children know the importance of people’s consciousness, words, and thoughts. It will help children grow spiritually and will help create peaceful world.

Why is EPP important now?

Water is the most important substance for human and all beings. However, the study on water is still behind. We have been having abnormal weather with water in many places in the world. Nothing can live without water, and it is not just the problem of the earth. We all shall learn about important water, and let’s all make actions together. Let us pass on simple and beautiful message of water to children around the world so we can all change the world for the better together.

When a human being first comes to this planet earth physically, that is when father’s sperm and mother’s egg meet with each other and become fertilized. At this time, we are 95% is water, so we are almost all water. As we become an adult, water in our body is about 70%. So, we might want to say that we are almost made of water. We live surrounded by many kinds of “water” every day.

The earth is called “water planet” whose surface is surrounded by 70% water. Human beings and the earth are alike. Most part of water on earth is ocean, and there is water in the air in the forms of clouds and fogs, rain water, groundwater, lakes and ponds, rivers, snow on top of high mountains, Antarctic ice… they are all water.

From Masaru Emoto’s study on water through more than tens of thousands water crystal photos that his laboratory has taken, we have learned that positive intentions, words, music, vibrations affect water beautifully, on the other hands, negative intentions, words, music, vibrations affect water negatively and ugly. As both we human beings and the earth are almost 70% water, we can improve both our environment and ourselves and make it the better place for all; animals, insects, trees, plants, mineral, and all beings to live if we change our everyday attitudes, words, and consciousness in a better way because we all live on this earth.
Present environment of the earth is at the very critical point, and we can make it sustainable together if we learn about water and make action together. It is the project for all the precious children to be able to live happily in 10 years, 20 years, 100 years, and 200 years from now.

Why children?

Children are pure. If we give them a chance to learn about water and the true nature of us human beings, they will grow with the right knowledge to be a good person with the attitude of love and gratitude. We hope that children will lead the earth in a favorable direction in 10 to 20 years from now. We hope that the book, THE MESSAGE FROM WATER, will be translated into many languages and be of help to all children around the world.

This is EMOTO PEACE PROJECT, and the mission is to distribute children’s book, THE MESSAGE FROM WATER, to children around the world to make the better place to live.

Experiments with different words

As people learn that water reacts happily when we show or say good words to water and it reacts in a negative way as we show or say negative words, many children in many different countries have done various experiments. Below are some examples:

*** Rice Experiment ***

Someone did a rice experiment with words using in 2001.
The picture below is the photo of the experience.

Rice Experiment

*** Flower Experiment ***

Rebecca got 3 pots of same size and same color.
She wrote “I love you”, “I hate you”, and “Ignored”, and put them on the pots, and she said each words to the flowers every day. She took photos of the flowers every day for 30 days.
She did not give any water during these 30 days of experiment. You can see the results clearly even with flowers.
Flower Experiment

Some children have sent us their thoughts after doing the experiments. They all learned that positive words affect positively and negative words affect negatively to their surroundings. After the experiments, they will want to use good words. They will want to say “Thank you” to everyone and everything. They will want to change the world in a better way!

The Energy of Gratitude

Gratitude actually has a very powerful energy. The more we are aware of this power and the more we activate our own gratitude, the more we experience happiness, peace and enjoyment of life. The practice of gratitude as a tool for happiness is well-known. Long-term studies support gratitude’s effectiveness, suggesting that a positive, appreciative attitude contributes to greater well-being, more success in work, greater health, peak performance in sports and business and a faster rate of recovery from surgery, for starters.

Though we may be aware of gratitude’s numerous benefits, it can be difficult to sustain the “attitude of gratitude”. We habitually tend to notice what is not working or is lacking in our lives. For gratitude to demonstrate its full healing potential in our lives, it needs to become a daily habit, a new way of looking at everything! And that can take some time.

That’s why practicing gratitude is so important. When we practice giving thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying or complaining about what we lack, we open ourselves to begin to to see all of life as an opportunity and a blessing.

It’s important to remember that gratitude isn’t a blindly optimistic approach in which the bad things in life are whitewashed or ignored. It’s more a matter of where we choose to put our focus and attention. Pain, negativity and injustice exist in this world, but when we choose to use our personal energy to instead focus on the goodness of life, we gain a feeling of well-being. Gratitude balances us and gives us hope. It gives us a brighter perspective and increases our optimism.

There are so many things to be grateful for: colorful autumn leaves, a sunny day, the ability to walk, music, friends and family, chocolate, fresh fruit, warm blankets, laughter, the ability to read, roses, our health, butterflies. What’s on your list? How many things can you come up with? Start keeping a list!

Ways to Practice Gratitude

•  Keep a gratitude journal in which you list things for which you are thankful. You can make daily, weekly or monthly lists. Keep it simple and incorporate it into your daily routine. Just write down 3 things you are grateful for every night before you fall asleep. It takes 21 days to create a new habit, so it’s good to start now! Just keeping a gratitude journal in an obvious place where you can often see it will remind you to think in a grateful way.

•  Practice gratitude around the dinner table or make it part of your blessing or prayers at mealtime.

•  Make a point of finding the hidden blessings in a challenging situation. They are there if you are just willing to look.

•  If you are worried or feel like complaining, instead try to consider the opposite outcome. What’s the best that could happen in any situation? Try this and you may be amazed by how much better you feel.

•  Notice how gratitude is changing your life. Write about it, sing about it, give thanks for gratitude.

As you start to practice gratitude, a real inner shift will begin to occur and you may be surprised and even delighted to discover how content and hopeful you are feeling. That sense of contentment, appreciation and fulfillment is gratitude activated by you, for you. So be grateful for everything you can think of…Why not? It works!

Warm Regards,
