Our recently unleashed COVID-19 pandemic universe which, in a matter of days, has swept away Life As We’ve Known It – never before experienced in pretty much any of our lifetimes – is more than anything a call for courage. It is a time to understand and newly create the Courage to Be
We are our choices.
Our lives are the history of our choices.
Happy, fruitful heroic adventuring! I believe our times demand it . . . “Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Gandhi
Giving thanks is the directive – and acknowledging the abundance and gift of our blessings to survive, sustain and share. In our most troubling times I believe this holiday in particular spiritually offers us a great deal toward self-healing, development, empowerment, and most of all universal caring without condition and without fear, to truly create and support all of our greater good…In that spirit I want to share what I brought forth as the workshop focus in my women’s self-healing and empowerment monthly group meeting last week on exploring the larger meaning and opportunity of blessings for success and higher power for all.

I have facilitated ongoing women’s self-healing and spirituality groups since I started Centering Tools in 1987… I asked the group to consider, as we move towards…the full holiday season, this deeper meaning of gratitude beyond the increasingly popular practice and belief that “thanking” involves “focusing on the (judged) good”, but to instead meditate on how to thank everything without denying all that occurred as a key aspect of completion for healing and necessary development.
