- to help the community unite for a common goal,
- and so on.

What is Gratitude?
Gratitude is defined as “The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.”
When we are grateful for that which we have, our heads and hearts stop focusing on things that we don’t have.
We open our hearts and become able to base our actions on grace, generosity and integrity.
We put ourselves in a better position to help others as we ourselves need help occasionally.
This ceremony will put you smack-bang in the centre of a state of gratitude. By the end of it you and your community will be ready to celebrate your good fortune and abundance of love and other resources.

The author recommends having a bottle of the Goddess-ence 100% pure essential oil, Kwan Yin blend for the heart chakra, to assist with the opening and swelling of hearts and subsequent feelings of trust and gratitude.

About the Daily Blissings Project
The Daily Blissings Project is a personal challenge to take a photo every day of something I’m grateful for. It’s as simple and difficult as that.
To document things I’m grateful for, in words and pictures, on a daily basis.
To improve my “attitude of gratitude” I came up with the Daily Blissings project to keep me positive and happy. It worked… the secret to beating the blues lies within counting my blessings (or as I call them, “blissings”). I do this by keeping a daily gratitude blog in words and pictures.
The conscious act of taking a photo means I am actively looking for and recognising things to be grateful for — ergo, the attitude of gratitude becomes a conscious act.
This daily act of being consciously grateful has turned my life around. It has helped me trust even further that the Universe is benevolent and, in the words of my favourite astrologer and philosopher Rob Brezsny, conspiring to shower me in blessings.
