We are on round 4! These last ten days, the Guiding Thoughts return to using me and I for the pronouns. See how your perspective of your self has changed through using you or we the past twenty days. See if your sense of self is bigger; if you can include a broader vision of “you”.
You may also choose to continue to take a moment before the Journey to listen to this quickly—it is a thought for others, so that the effects of this Journey ripple out!
Spend about 15-20 minutes with the guiding thought, and then let your heart speak through words, pictures, colors, shapes, whatever feels right. I’ve supplied a link below to an audio of me doing the guiding thought–use it if you like to create, while listening to it play on a loop (that’s what I do). Scroll to the bottom for my sharing…
Day 39 Guiding Thought
Gratitude strikes my heart like a bell, resounding love through my being.
Gratitude opens my heart to Love’s purity, my very own essence!
I experience such deep gratitude for my heart, my essence, my ALL of Life!

You can download this and play it in a loop while you allow your heart to speak to you :). I suggest Windows Media Player (I have not tested other players).
The center of this picture is a pearl. The word “essence” was very powerful today, and as soon as I started listening to the Guiding Thought, the word essence immediately brought to mind a picture of a pearl—my essence—in my mind! It was really neat to connect with my Susanwithpearls essence through this Guiding Thought. I really felt it. In fact, this was one of the deeper-feeling days that I’ve had.
As it seems to go at those times when feelings are predominant, I’m a bit at a loss for words to describe the effect.
However, I will say that as I was drawing, I was wishing for you to feel a similar connection with your essence, with your “pearl”, whatever that is for you. I felt so satisfied, calm, assured, happy, and loved; I want you to know that part of yourself…the part that brings you these kinds of feelings. I want you to know peace within yourself.
Gratitude came naturally from this connection to my essence, too. I was so thankful for the love that I was feeling, love I wanted to share, and I know is possible for everyone.
When I feel like this, I know this is the right path. Oh, what the world would be like, if everyone knew themselves as the beautiful pearl-essence that they are! Connection with others would be heartfelt and sincere. People would want to do things in such a way that would unlock other’s ability to unearth their (sometimes deeply) buried worth and beauty. People would aspire to co-operation, helping each other, sharing; in short, to being kind… it’s a beautiful thing to imagine.
May you know peace in your essence today…and always.
