Part of enjoying a clear space involves being mindful of what’s in it. In this month’s ACP Enews I feature a few of my favorite ways to shift into enjoying life right where you are – starting with what I call ‘piece’ practice. This is a wonderful exercise in gratitude and appreciation for what you have. (And a wake up call for what isn’t working for you.)
“Fan mail from some flounder?” A one liner from my youth that never fails to bring a smile to my face. It also serves as a reminder that messages do matter – especially ones of gratitude.

Being grateful transforms our feelings of despair to ones of hope. We can go from a perspective of burden to bliss in an instant. This season of giving thanks seemed the perfect time to share my backyard alchemy experience – yet another example of the transforming magic of nature.

Being thankful for what you have is the surest way to love where you are. If you are not happy with your place or your space, you have the power to change it. It’s called gratitude. You can shift your world by blessing it. Start right now by looking around your room and saying thank you. When you walk into your home say thank you. Practice mindful placement of your belongings. And always give and receive with gratitude.
Giving thanks begins in the heart. It’s where all healing starts. Connect with your heart-self by bringing nature close to you. Its energy will lift you and your space. Simple. A single flower is a good way to start.
About this photo: Flowers vibrate at a high frequency, especially roses. This spray rose beauty greeted me in my backyard one afternoon. The fragrance called to me even before I saw the blossoms. Pink and green are the colors of the heart chakra so this photo was perfect for the GRATITUDE card.
Holiday Tip: Place this card on your table at Thanksgiving. Pass it around to each guest and let them share what they are grateful for this season. Dining alone? Start a gratitude list on paper.
