Gratitude almost feels like an overstated word. Friends and clients often say that balance is another overstated word. Cultures and societies use words repeatedly but one must ask why. My thought is the words that we are hearing so frequently are often the qualities we need most in our lives.
My friend Patti Hawn who has joined us here at TEF over the past couple of years, really understands the power of gratitude as she has lived a life of many challenges and been a prime example of someone who has learned how to turn challenges into opportunities. The days in which we are living require us to look for light in times where there seems to be only darkness. Gratitude is one of the universal spiritual principles that when practiced daily transforms our lives and the lives of those we touch.
On November 23rd Patti Hawn and I – in the next complimentary Essential Feminine Living Room (link) – will look at the power of gratitude and share specific practices and ways to attract more harmony, peace of mind and happiness into your life, the perfect beginning to your holiday season. Please join us. We look forward to seeing you there.
I hope you will join us for this timely Living Room.  November 2011 – Register for free!  12:00 pm to 1:15 pm.  It’s complimentary!

Ask yourself what has your life experience been so far this year? Could you consciously make change now that would improve your life? What does this change look like?

The autumn has an inner and outer perspective –we need to honor both. As new things ignite—classes, meetings and the like –we can enjoy this newness of the outer side of autumn. Also remember to look inward –read, contemplate have long restful baths- take time to feed your soul.

Autumn is delicious  George Elliot agrees in his comment:

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns”. (more…)
