Our Personal Practice of Gratitude Creates Healing for Ourselves & Humanity

The Alchemy of Gratitude

When we embody the energy of gratitude we align with the energy of value — each item we name and feel grateful for is an expression of what we choose to value.⠀⠀

It is easy to name those things in our life that we feel good about having or experiencing.

This is an invitation to expand your concept of gratitude to include those experiences and circumstances that are difficult, not what you want, and quite frankly can suck in the moment.

We are asked to remember that all the world / Universe / God / Source / Beyond / etc. offers us is for us, even the rough spots, sh*t shows, and traumas. They all serve our growth and expansion, if we alter our perception.

If we chose to value those “undesirables” with the wisdom that they too contain medicine *for* our healing, growth, and expansion, then we create the opportunity to deeply release & transmute the negativity we carry about them.

In my Service is my Purpose

In my Service is my Purpose

As we turn towards Fall in the Northern Hemisphere, we are invited us to look at the systems and structures by which we live our lives, and serve the planet through us be-ing us.  How we are be-ing to ourselves and to others is just as important as what we are do-ing with our time, energy, and resources.

What area of the whole human wheel of life needs some attention, some housekeeping, an upgrade or a deep-dive clearing?

How we Lead our Lives is How we Lead Others

How we Lead our Lives is How we Lead Others

We cannot expect we can show up for others - our family, friends, colleagues, partners - as our best selves if we don't first show up for ourselves with the Courage and Strength (Leo qualities) to choose a higher choice for the expression of our Be-ing. To make the necessary internal changes to then be expressed on the world's stage.  This is how we begin to live a whole human life, with Self-Leadership for our thoughts and choices, Self-Responsibility for what we create in the world, grounded in the Wisdom of the Body, the Truth of our Soul, crafted with Love and Care for Self and Others. 

Standing in the Sun

Summer Solstice is the half-way point of the year, the Summer Equinox, the start of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

If we consider the entire year as a cycle, this day in the Northern Hemisphere is when the energy of the sun is at its highest expression before it shifts direction, before the light descends steadily back into darkness until her sister, Winter Solstice, arrives. 

And in the Southern hemisphere, today is when we have the darkest of days - an invitation to be at still and at peace in the dark - before coming back into the light. 

We are all on this planet together. No matter which hemisphere we happen to be in, we will feel both the energies of light and dark, the duality that is the spiral of Nature.
