Thanksgiving Greetings: The Secret Power of Gratitude

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Thanksgiving Greetings!

Thanks for being a reader in my blog!

In the coming Thanksgiving celebration we focus on gratitude. But the true nature of Gratitude is not known at a popular level, so I thought to share here today the powerful secret I have learned about Gratitude, that you may practice it during the Thanksgiving and Holy Days ceremonies.

I’ve also included another post with an art and poem from my new poetry book, The Tao of Trees. Enjoy!

The Secret Power of Gratitude

I want to share with you the secret power of gratitude and how to activate it.

Gratitude is an emotional alchemy
that transmutes the ordinary
into the extraordinary and activates
the magic inherent in you as a creator.

When you activate your gratitude, your heart enters the state of coherence, harmonizing with your mind and healing the endless worries, anxieties and running thoughts that keep you stressed out.

But how do you achieve gratitude, especially when you are burn-out, scared, stressed or sad?

Here is an easy, quick 8-step practice to activate your gratitude.

Close your eyes for a moment and breathe gently into your heart.
Feel the sacred energy […]

Art and poem: Celebration

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Thanksgiving and the Holidays

During these holy days, I want to join you in a celebration of life, love and the beauty in this world. So here’s a poem and art illustration from The Tao of Trees to remind you of the magic of love and the power of gratitude.

This is poem #3 and it’s in The Path of Beauty, one of seven paths in the illustrated poetry book.

Yesterday I did not see this tree.
I was in a hurry and walk past it.
After all, it was just another tree
like the many lining my path.
Now I stop in wonder.
Rain drops hang from the naked limbs,
like diamonds glittering
in the fingers of creation.
Like fairies, they twinkle
inviting me to play and pray;
filling me with gratitude.
This trunk is no longer ordinary.
Father Winter’s dazzling garland
has transformed this humble tree
into a celebration.

From The Tao of Trees, by Maria Mar(c)

Valentine Gift-The Courage to Love

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Valentine Gift
The Courage to Love

What is your love story?
Are you overflowing with love in your life, romantic as well as friendship love? Are you in love? Out of love? Grieving a break-up? Have you given up in love or are you heartbroken?
Whatever your love story is, you will infuse it with magic and inspiration in this short video love letter that is my gift to you this Valentine.
So often Valentine messages are only for those who have a partner, but love exists beyond the meeting with the beloved. It expands us beyond the relationship. It does not go when the beloved departs.
Therefore, this Valentine message is for you no matter what your love story is, if you are in a relationship, alone, going through a breakup, grieving a love relationship or hiding from love.
This is a love letter to celebrate your capacity to love, to infuse you with the courage to love again and to inspire you to dive into your loss to grow your love (instead of hiding and protecting yourself from loving again.)
Enjoy it and share it […]

Do you hurt for your friend like this?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Is this you?
Do you hurt for your friend like this?
When women repel success
Every few months I meet her and the minute she sees me her eyes light with a paradoxical mix of hope and desperation.
As she walks towards me I ask myself “Will this be the time?”
She barely says hi. She dives into a stream of complaints. You know that string. That’s how your friend goes on and on about what she really, really wants to do instead of the boring or grueling job she now has.
You hear it every time you gals meet. You try to help her, but any suggestion you give is met with a “Yes, but…”
After a while you get it that she is resisting to take any action on her own behalf, so all you can do is seat there patiently, listening to the streams of complains, wishes and dreams that you know will never happen.
You listen because you love your friend. But for that same reason, it hurts like hell and you go home with a broken heart.
If that has happened to you, then […]
