Make a Daily Gratitude List
Olympic National Park
From Yoga 365, the focus today is to create a "Gratitude List." This is a perfect way to appreciate the richness of your life by weaving the feeling of gratitude into you entire day. Start the day with a simple meditation to clear your mind. Focusing on your breath is a perfect way to get grounded and centered. Then, make a mental list for those things you are grateful for. Think about each entry on your list. For example, you may feel grateful toward a particular person or for a positive event that you experienced. Perhaps take into account your talents or accomplishments. You may simply be thankful for the sun rising or for the food in your refrigerator. This is an excellent practice that can set the tone of how you will move through the world today. But why stop here? Why not make this a daily ritual. For one thing, it will change your perspective about how you view others and situations that arise. Secondly, it is a perfect way to manifest more of these blessings in your life.
From a feng shui perspective, the southeast portent resonates with the aspect of fortunate blessings in life. Okay, most people who are familiar with feng shui would call this the portent of wealth. But what is wealth anyway? Would you say it constitutes health, family, happiness, a loving relationship, your soul's mission and spirituality? In my opinion, it most certainly does. Just try it for one day to make a gratitude list. Write this list while spending time in the southeast portent of your home. Place it by a water fountain or healthy plant and let the natural energy of movement and growth expand your gratitude list. When you come from a perspective of blessings, the universe will send more your way!
