ALLOWING OUR SELF TO FEEL / ALLOWING OUR CHILDREN TO FEEL
As the month of November continues, I’m observing that so many people and organizations are acknowledging the importance of GRATITUDE! A popular spiritual teacher Matt Kahn, says to “love everything” that arises! To love that part of us that is rebelling, to love the challenge of the day, to love criticism, the negative emotions…to love it ALL!
If we do approach life in this way,
Today is November 1! Welcome to the month of Thanksgiving. It is the month of giving "thanks" and gratitude.
Years ago, a friend and spiritual leader, Betty Strohm, suggested the practice to me for writing down 3 things nightly that I was grateful for from that day. I found it to be a wonderful practice.
A daily practice of writing creates a connection to that which we are focusing on. It prompts the rising up from within, thoughts and feelings which we may not have given the voice to previously!
