Each month, this column features a “Message from Love” with an action step and meditation. Each message gives examples of what Love might say and do in various circumstances. So, whenever you find yourself feeling scared, angry or uncomfortable, instead of letting fear have its way, practice asking yourself:

What would Love Say?
“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” — Meister Eckhart

What would Love do?
Live in a state of gratitude this month and see what transpires. Make “thank you” a large part of your vocabulary.

Meditation for Love:
Sit in a quiet space and light a candle. Close your eyes and place your hand against your heart and breathe in and out for several minutes. Feel Love breathing through you. Begin to say thank you over and over. Without thinking about what you are grateful for, just repeat the phrase and feel gratitude growing inside your heart.
