This weekend, Americans traditionally gather with family and friends for a "day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year." What a beautiful tradition!
I grew up in South Africa where we did not celebrate this holiday, so I was eleven for my first Thanksgiving with my extended American family. Yesterday, we hosted the turkey dinner at our home, this time with my extended South African family here to celebrate. Traditions and cultures blending through the years - it's perfect!
There is so much in my life to give thanks for today and all days. This weekend especially, my heart has been full to overflowing with all of the time spent with family and friends. We got up early this morning to start our Black Friday holiday shopping and have been laughing and playing our way through the day! And now tonight, I pause to share my joy and gratitude with you in this weekly email, sitting on the couch with my husband, puppy asleep between us. My life feels so peaceful and abundant.
I had a lively video chat with a friend scheduled to share for this week's Healing Our Souls episode, and today in my meditation, it felt like a simpler, quieter message was more in alignment.
I recorded this guided meditation in April as part of a 30 Days Meditation series. And today it was just as timely to allow me space to tune in to my body and give thanks for the magic of this beautiful Life I chose to experience.
To honor the "blessing of the harvest" this Thanksgiving, take a half hour and flow through Giving Thanks with me. So peaceful...
We will gather again in our virtual community to clear stuck energy and ground in for the week ahead, if you would like to join us for Viben on Sunday at 7am PT / 10am ET.
Have a beautiful holiday weekend, my friends!
