Ignite Your Joy
a four-week journey to ignite your joy and light up your life
Today is our last day class. I have enjoyed my time with you so much! I’d like to leave you with a few more of my joy practices.
Gratitude or MiraclesJar
I have been enjoying this practice for a few years now. I have a jar on my dining room table which I see several times during the day. I regularly add a slip of paper documenting my gratitude into the jar when something great happens.
At the end of the year, I have a ceremony where I light a candle, count my blessings and read my gratitudes from the year. It is a wonderful practice. I have had to get a larger jar to hold my ever expanding gratitudes for the year and isn’t that just the best metaphor for us on our path of joy?!!
On and off over the years, I’ve enjoyed the practice of keeping a gratitude journal. I’ve usually done it for a 30-day period or longer. Each day (or night) write what it is you are grateful for that day and why. Some teachers state no repeats, but I’m not that stringent. I think repeats are just fine. The important thing is to list what it is you are grateful for each day and why you are grateful for that item. This practice is literally counting your blessings and also attracts more things to be grateful for using the powerful Law of Attraction principle.
Thank You or Gratitude Notes
I have always been a lover of paper, writing, pens, stationery…since I’ve learned to write.
As a child we were always encouraged to write a thank you note when someone gave you a gift. It was mandatory. We have moved away from that custom as a society, yet I relish giving and receiving cards in the mail.
Last year, I started to send out 100 letters to people in my life who have made an impact in my life. Each letter was sent with detail and so much love. I only got through part of my list and hope to continue this practice in the near future.
I encourage you to consider starting a practice of sending out hand-written notes of love and gratitude to those you hold dear.
I am so grateful you have come along on this four-week journey of joy with me. My heart is so full of love and gratitude for you. Thank you for showing up for you and for your joy.
This journey has been such a blessing for me. I trust you have received what you have needed from this experience.
