Celebrate The Little Things

celebrate the little things

While the pandemic has caused havoc over the last twelve months across the world, it has taught us that all we can do is surrender and accept what we cannot control.⁠

But it has taught us so much more. Humans have always managed to rise from destruction and disaster.

While we are still counting the costs and trying to fathom the enormity of our losses, there is also light beginning to shine through the cracks.

We have learned

  • to enjoy your own company⁠
  • to be inventive and resourceful⁠
  • to collaborate⁠
  • to be of service⁠
  • to be disciplined⁠
  • to cook and even grow your own food⁠
  • about our strengths and weaknesses⁠
  • about what we truly value and what is unimportant⁠
  • how vulnerable our way of life is⁠

What have you learned so far? ⁠

Take a moment every day to recognise and acknowledge your achievements, a-ha moments, the little wins, insights, flashes of delight, the peace and beauty of a moment. 

Celebrate the little things that give you joy and a sense of satisfaction.⁠

Amidst doubt and uncertainty, there is always a reason to celebrate something, even if it’s small, and even if we have to celebrate alone.

Warmest wishes,

Christiane

Practicing Gratitude With The Tarot

practicing gratitude with the tarot

Thanksgiving Day in the US is a gentle reminder for all of us around the world to pause and consciously appreciate all the goodness in our lives.

But practicing gratitude isn’t just for Thanksgiving Day.

There is evidence that cultivating a habit of appreciation improves your mental health.

But perhaps you are one of those people, who cannot think of much to be grateful for right now.

You may have been experiencing a difficult time – relationship breakup, unemployment, poverty, illness, bereavement…

It’s easy to get cynical in such a situation. I know. 

A time of year so devoted to being grateful for what we have, can also painfully make us aware of what we have not, or what we have lost.

But I would like to invite you to be open to gratitude. 

Expressing your appreciation for even the simplest things that actually do go right in your life can help you create a shift in your perception to a higher vibrational level.

And why not use the Tarot to help you along? 

You can approach practicing gratitude with the Tarot in two ways:

1. Go through the whole deck and choose one thing for each card you are grateful for. 

2. Or just pick a few cards at random to explore what you can be grateful for at this moment in time.

Examples:

Wheel of Fortune – grateful for those lucky turn of events in my favour

Three of Pentacles – grateful for all the experience gained from working with fantastic people

King of Swords – grateful for having stopped all the emotional drama in my life once and for all

The Moon – grateful for the magic, mystery and imagination in my life

Two of Wands – grateful for new opportunities I’m excited about

Remember to make a note of them all in your journal (check out the Tarot Moon Journal).

Why don’t you give this gratitude tarot exploration a try and raise your vibes today.

Pick as many cards as you like, and perhaps you will even enjoy drawing a daily card to express your gratitude for something (or someone!) good in your life right now.

Special journaling prompt: 

What can I be grateful for in my life that money can’t buy?

Discover your hidden blessings with the Tarot!

Warmest wishes,

Christiane
