I hope you are enjoying your summer. It's pretty intense at the Reiki Clinic. Lots of new faces and the energy is really flowing. I'm taking off for my birthday this weekend and I have been reflecting on life. I have so much to be grateful for and I want to express my gratitude. I opened the clinic 18 years ago and never in my wildest dreams to did I expect it to turn into such an amazing "job". (The word "Job" seems so inadequate.) I have met so many wonderful people, seen so many miracles and done some much needed personal healing. This included growing as a person and stepping way, way out of my comfort zone. I still can't believe its been 18 years or that I have two best sellers, a writing contract and a calendar full of international healing clients. I am honored that you trusted me and allowed me to walk this path with you.

Ever Used a Gratitude Journal?
Did it work?
If not, could it be that you were going through the motions and not digging deep enough?
Gratitude journaling is more effective if you first make the conscious decision to go all in. That means not just writing an affirmation or listing one pleasant thing that happened each week. Writing once in a while and calling it a day isn't going to bring about any significant changes.
To fully commit means writing consistently and elaborating in detail about a particular thing. A gratitude journal is intended to be personal. It means opening up and focusing on people you are grateful for and situations that touched you, your family, or your life. Share your story with the journal and be honest about what you are feeling. Journalling isn't the time to skimp on details or emotions.
Write about the items that you are grateful for, of course, but when we go deeper and move past the superficial list, we begin to see significant benefits. Be brave and start again if you've stopped.
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
