Living in a state of gratitude is a mindset that comes from an open heart. Being grateful for everything in your life allows you to see the world through a lens of love. Every relationship and circumstance has the potential to reveal the power of gratefulness.

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”    ~ Melody Beattie

ACTION STEPS

No matter what life brings your way, focus on being grateful and you can turn any challenge into an opportunity. Gratitude is a virtue that makes all other virtues possible. Live with an appreciation for life and you'll attract more goodness to appreciate.

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Giving with Ease

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

To give without expectations creates ease in your mind and body. A gift from the heart allows you to be in the present. Follow nature's example of giving freely and notice how your gifts are received and multiplied.

"No one has ever become poor by giving."  Anne Frank

ACTION STEPS

It's important to fill up your own well so that you can give with ease. Give yourself the time and attention you need so that you can easily share your gifts, time, and talents with others. Giving from a full well is the basis of wellness. The ease of giving comes naturally when you live in a state of abundance. 

To increase your life force energy, give your body more ease. Stress blocks energy like a kink in a hose stops the flow of water. As soon as you get rid of a kink, the flow is immediately restored. Remove the kinks of tension in your body with yoga, deep breathing or massage and you'll return to your natural state of ease.

Growth and evolution merge together in the process of creating heaven on earth. As you grow in mind and body your heart and spirit naturally evolve. Learning to live in harmony is the evolutionary path of humanity. 

“Continue to grow and evolve.” Mahatma Gandhi

ACTION STEPS

Your mind and body grow through change, challenges, and exploration. On an emotional and spiritual level your soul evolves when you make positive changes, overcome challenges, and explore your inner and outer worlds.

You grow mentally when you choose to uplift others rather than judge them....

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

The season of change is about letting go of the past to begin a new chapter. Nature's fall colors and fallen leaves are a reminder to stand in your brilliance and simply let go. The law of release is letting go of what you don't want to make room for what you do want.

“When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.”  

~ Viktor E. Frankl

ACTION STEPS

If you're feeling challenged by the outside world it's an opportunity to make internal changes. When the world appears to be in a state of chaos and confusion the best thing you can do is create a state of calmness and clarity within yourself. The universal law of frequency states that your individual vibration has an impact on the world.

The law of cause and effect states that for every effect you experience there is always a cause. When it comes to taking care of yourself remember that the way you treat your body will produce either a positive or...

When you focus on the light within you become radiant. Your solar plexus is the power center for your body that generates vitality for life. As a magnetic being of light you naturally radiate health, strength, confidence, and courage.

“Don't fear the light within. May it ignite the Sacred Flame in your soul.” ~ Paulo Coelho

ACTION STEPS

If you're feeling insecure and have a need to please others; or if you tend to bully and manipulate people to get your way, know that these are symptoms of a closed power center. You can heal your solar plexus chakra by bringing negative patterns of behavior into the light to be transformed. As you become illuminated you're more at ease with yourself and others.  

Your third chakra is located above your navel in the area of your solar plexus. This is where your physical and spiritual powers come together. To keep this center balanced you can say empowering mantras, practice sun salutations, and heal past...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Practicing Self-Care

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

Self-care is a practice that requires self-discipline. If you’re in the habit of putting everyone else first, this kind of self-love may feel uncomfortable. Taking good care of yourself is the foundation for building a happy, fulfilling life.

“An empty lantern provides no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly.” ~ Unknown

ACTION STEPS

Engaging in a self-care practice begins with commitment. When you commit to something or someone you're more likely to follow through. You may have to say no to other demands on your time to keep your self-care commitment a top priority. Start by finding a tranquil place in nature where you can just be and replenish yourself.

Your body thrives on movement and exercise. It takes self-discipline to maintain a routine that develops strength, flexibility and endurance while staying balanced with proper rest, relaxation and sleep. A practice is something you cultivate over time so be...

Living wild and free means you're growing in a natural environment without being controlled. By taking charge of your inner and outer landscape you are cultivating freedom. You were created to live in harmony with nature.   

“All good things are wild and free.” ~ Henry David Thoreau 

ACTION STEPS

Find the similarities between you and a sunflower growing in the wild. Perhaps it's your natural tendency to turn towards the light and stay open to life. You may discover that you like being with others who love basking in the light as much as you do. Be the untamed version of yourself and see how you flourish. 

One place you can grow a natural environment is in your gut. When your microbiome is in balance your immune system can do its job. Bacteria and fungi are small living organisms that make up your microbiome. At least once a day connect with nature by going barefoot on the ground to support your health.

You are taking control of...

If every cloud has a silver lining it stands to reason that every challenge comes with the inspiration to be brilliant. Look for the beauty in everything to feel inspired by life. Beauty inspires the experience of love.
