How appropriate a card for this season, especially only a couple of days after the celebration of Lughnasadh. It is customary on all three of the harvest festivals (though I feel Samhain may be the exception for most) to give thanks for the blessings and manifestations that have come to fruition within our lives. A couple of days ago, or yesterday for me, we gave thanks for what we’ve already begun to reap with the hopes of more yet to come. Gratitude is one of the most beautiful vibrations and if you follow the law of attraction, when you send that vibration out, you will receive more things to be grateful for. It’s a beautiful cycle.
However, once our rituals are done and the circles have been released, we go about our daily lives which may or may not include regular prayers of thanks. This is what we are being reminded of today. There are always reasons to be grateful and it’s important to keep them in mind and give thanks. You needn’t wait for a holiday. These small moments of prayer should be within our daily habits. It could be a simple prayer before meals, before bed, or even just as small as a “Thank You!” whispered to the Universe.
How do you express gratitude? Is it on a daily basis or reserved for only the special occasions? Gratitude isn’t like fine china, my friends. No need to keep it stored away until the next family get-together. If you don’t already have a gratitude practice, how could you go about integrating it into your daily life as it is?
Brightest of Blessings,
The Autumn Witch
