HOW TO INCORPORATE A DAILY GRATITUDE PRACTICE

Are you grateful? It is Thanksgiving in the United States today and this year is quite different than any other Thanksgiving I’ve ever experienced (including living overseas during an American holiday!). The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has changed how people can celebrate. So, I thought why not write about how to incorporate a gratitude practice into your daily routine? So, what is gratitude? It’s an affirmation of what is good and beneficial in our lives. However, we can be grateful for things that can be painful as well. Gratitude is in the eye of the beholder, and I struggled for YEARS with a healthy practice myself. One day — during my dark night of the soul — I started to think about things that had happened “to” me. I would say, “Everything would be great if ___ didn’t happen TO me.” And I stopped to think about that statement what had happened TO me.

11:11 PORTAL TAROT READING 2020

Happy 11:11! 11/11 is an exciting day because one is a powerful number. When it appears in duplicated form – as in the number eleven – some powerful energies are at play and eleven is an essential way that the Universe is awakening our consciousness. So, I thought, let’s check out an 11:11 portal tarot reading for 2020! We are currently living in a four year – and it has been a FOUR energy year!

WHAT DOES RELAXING IN THE MODERN AGE LOOK LIKE?*

When we think of classic relaxing methods, we think back to the days of men in smoking jackets, sitting around the fire, in their slippers, smoking a pipe and reading a book. You know, with the crackle of logs on a fire bristling in the background, the steam of a hot cup of tea is filling the room, and a gentle breeze blowing outside the window? Can’t you see an oil lantern burning away, sitting next to the gentleman – wearing a nightcap and sporting a rather classic moustache? It’s homely, cosy, and it feels right.
