21 Day Cacao Challenge – Attitude of Gratitude (Day 6)


Text to Speech

Today is the Gemini New Moon, Solar Eclipse aka Ring of fire.  New Moons are a potent time for exploring gratitude and life’s rhythms, as well as planting new seeds of intent for the future.

What is the attitude of Gratitude?

An attitude of gratitude is a conscious habit of expressing appreciation for every part of our life.  It means that we live life from a place of abundance, even on the days that feels like nothing is going right.

When we actively bring more gratitude into our daily lives, the positive affect can decrease anxiety and burnout and increases levels of optimism and promotes better sleep!

Below are some simple ways to bring more abundance into you life:

  • Keep a gratitude diary
  • Express your gratitude
  • Celebrate the small things
  • Meditate on Gratitude

Inviting the ritual of gratitude into our lives, gives us access to the sacredness that surrounds us, giving us access to a larger perspective of the rhythms of life.

Gratitude turns what we have into enough.

I opened my jar of gratitude letters, letters that I had left each day for a year, and read these beautiful reminders, that whilst 2020 was a year most of us want to forget, there was still so much to be grateful for amidst the pandemic.

Today’s Intention:

To feel grateful for the natural rhythms of life.

Today, I am feeling so grounded, centred and peaceful.  As I stepped into the kitchen, I popped on some music, Higher Love, and lit some Rain Forest Incense (one of my favs!) and decided to fire up my Cacao with a pinch of Cayenne and for some extra yumminess, Cinnamon and Vanilla. 

It’s from here I took the next step with a deeper conscious intention to bring gratitude into my day.

I did a short meditation to allow the spirit of Cacao to open my heart.  Imagining her beautiful loving energy surrounding me and opening up my heart.

That cayenne in the Cacao hit the spot on my first sip, as I felt its fiery infusion mingling with the loving energy of the spirit of Cacao flowing through me as I sat in blissful silence.

My practice today, was to list people I am grateful for, then spend some time feeling the love and gratitude for each of them and then sending them love from my heart to theirs.

This morning’s reading, lead me here: 

The Only Gemini New Moon Of The Year Is Here and there was a great challenge to go on a two-week tech diet, where we take time to connect with another human being, each day… gadgetless.  We don’t need to answer every call or text immediately.  I tend to make time to respond to people, when I am fully engaged in my response. Why don't you try it and see how this sets up your day / week / minth /year?

Daily check in questions:

What difference did this Challenge Make to my day?

I loved writing down who I am grateful to have in my life.  Sometimes we take these special extended family members of ours for granted, so it was nice to feel the love I have for them and send out love to them.

How is this challenge helping me achieve my goals?

I feel more focussed and energised, as I give myself this sacred time to just be and connect with myself.

How is this challenge impacting my relationships with nature, myself and other relationships?

I am starting feel myself dropping from my head into my heart more often at work.

With love
