This is admittedly my favorite month of the year. As much as I adore the energy of October, November feels like a deeper sink into the Fall and the darkness.
(It is also my birthday month so I may be just a little biased)
Autumn feels like a powerful time of release. Surrendering to the transformation and change of the earth around us and shifting our own focus from the vibrancy and outward energy of Summer to our inner realms.
Each November I do a daily gratitude practice to countdown to my birthday. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you will see these daily gratitude posts in my stories.
Gratitude is its own sort of magic. When we practice gratitude it shifts the way we think, the way we view the world and the way we interact with it and with those around us.
Gratitude is an invitation to explore ALL the things that there are to be grateful for past the surface elements. For example, instead of just being grateful for the food in the fridge, I find myself thankful for the people who grew and picked it, for the truck drivers who got it to the market and the produce workers who stock the shelves. I discover the gratitude I feel not just for the food and those that brought it to me, but then for the money I have to purchase it and the work I have to earn the money and the people who are courageous enough to come to me to do the work we do together.
My own reflections over the years have been that gratitude makes me slow down, take inventory, notice the little things and really notice the layers of blessings in my life.
I invite you to join me in this practice and discover what it brings up for you.
For the last few years I have created AnnualLunar Calendars and shared them with you.
The latest one will be available in about a week and I will include a link for you to get yours delivered to your inbox as soon as they are ready!
You will also have an opportunity to join me for a moon magic class in December. Stay tuned.
