Gratitude, Good Gifts and Deva


Beautiful thoughts from my faery sister, Laura, on this Day of Gratitude – a day I hope each of you will extend to every single moment of life you are breathing. I’m reminded of my favorite Thanksgiving celebrations, which were non-traditional faery feasts and fun shared with Laura. Today I’ll be celebrating with a vegan buffet feast with friends. However you choose to celebrate today, I hope it is with all of your heart.

I love Laura’s alternative suggestion she shares in her post, to boycotting Black Friday’s biggest shopping day of the year, “In the spirit of giving and flow, I suggested an alternative: making homemade gifts, shopping locally, and supporting small business owners you know and love. In today’s incredibly stressful world, sometimes the gift of beautiful art, quiet relaxation and/or new found clarity is the very best thing you can offer someone who wouldn’t normally splurge on that for themselves.” This is exactly what I choose to be engaged in myself.

I know that today is also a day of various forms of feasting and for me this day of sharing gratitude is also an extension of expressing my compassion and the life I have chosen to life as a direct mirror of that. For me, compassion extends to all of life, every day of my life. There hasn’t been (for the last 8 years), and won’t be, any animals in or on my body as long as I’m breathing. So while today is about gratitude for many things and the people in our life, I am also celebrating life for turkeys and all of Mother Earth’s creatures on this day of gratitude and every day that deserves our gratitude. ❤

As Meister Eckhart said, “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” Gratitude sets the stage for receiving and unites the giver and the gift.

Speaking of gifts, I know there’s a movement going on this year to boycott Black Friday, usually the biggest shopping day of the year. Some people are calling it Occupy (or De-Occupy) Black Friday. In the spirit of giving and flow, I suggested an alternative: making homemade gifts, shopping locally, and supporting small business owners you know and love. In today’s incredibly stressful world, sometimes the gift of beautiful art, quiet relaxation and/or new found clarity is the very best thing you can offer someone who…
