Attitude of Gratitude & Our Best Mineral Sale of the Year!

Happy Thanksgiving! The Sun entered social Sagittarius this week, setting off a wave of gatherings, feasts, gift-giving and celebrations! The jolly Sag season always gets off to a fab start with Thanksgiving festivities. It’s the time of year to get together with family and friends, share the fall harvest, and exchange stories, gifts, and good times. Sagittarius is also a thoughtful season, as we reflect on the past year and the blessings we’ve received. Here in Taos, the mountain peaks are dusted white, and the snow geese and sandhill cranes begin flying South to escape the incoming cold. The days are getting shorter and the night fires are glowing longer. From our vantage point on the Earth’s northern hemisphere, the Sun continues to retreat into the Southern sky until the Winter Solstice. The Christmas celebration occurs at the point when the Sun’s movement back North and the lengthening of the days can be easily seen. There are many different festivals of light during December ~ check out this blog post for spiritual gift ideas to honor your awesomely diverse friends and family!

With the plethora of goodies and the whirlwind of activities going on, it’s important to slow down and remember the practice of “gratitude”. The simplest way is noticing the gifts and bounty surrounding you, and feeling grateful for all of your blessings. Going deeper into a gratitude lifestyle, every moment becomes precious, our lives become treasures, and so does all life around us, from people to pets to the environment. When we exchange gratefulness, it raises the energy in an exponential way. Thoughtfulness for what we have draws more abundance! Aligning our energy with the ever-expanding universe opens the channels for infinite possibilities of growth.


This Thanksgiving, let’s embrace a deep level of mindful awareness that celebrates the gift of the present moment, everything in it, and all of the abundance to come. What are you grateful for right now? (The featured image of the cornucopia and the candle above is from pixabay ~ thanks!)

    Profound wisdom is abundant in this lovely article! Collectors of gemstone and fine jewelry look forward to this stupendous sale every year on your website and shop. The quality of the gems are the best and the service is always professional!
    I am so thankful to be able to read these wonderful articles, I get immense joy from reading them always. Thank You.

  2. That s honestly what I can say about overcoming life s obstacles and unanticipated setbacks, without gratitude, I would have crumbled.  Have you read Man s Search For Meaning ?  The author, Viktor Frankl, was kept in a concentration camp during WWII.  That is a dark and horrific time of human history to be sure, but he talks about the importance of attitude.  After reading it, I realized that if anyone in the world had the best justification for terror, pain and suffering- it would have been him and the millions of people who suffered during that time, yet he writes of gratitude and having a positive attitude.  The final oppression, he notes- when someone is trying to destroy you, is to anhiliate your sense of hope, gratitude and an ability to see beyond the situation and escape with dreams and positivity.

    • Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment! Dr. Frankl’s story is an excellent example of how even in the worse conditions and being stripped of almost everything one can still find meaning in their own lives and have gratitude for life itself. I found it interesting that his form of psychotherapy that developed out of his experience, known as “logotherapy”, helps one find meaning in their lives instead of focusing on the cycle of neuroses. It was also noteworthy how things like art, humor, and the beauty of nature can serve as beacons in dark times. ~ Christopher
