Good morning beautiful people,

Merry Xmas and happy holidays to everyone.

I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world.

I am writing to you from London Town, where friendship and love for my baby boy are filling up my heart with a lot of gratitude.

I actually keep reading that feeling grateful for what we do have will usually bring in more abundance in our life. Maybe it is from that place that we can let ourselves be guided and take actions that are for our highest good?

This year hasn’t spared anyone, everything has been stirred within. Yet, there will always be something amazing to hold onto, to be grateful for, even if is a smile of someone we love or a roof over our head.

So as you may begin to contemplate on what you do have, I am going to invite you to feel your feet on the ground, your sit bones on the surface you are are sitting on and take a deep inhale. As you exhale, and begin to feel your nervous system settle down, more present to what is, pls take a moment and ask yourself on this Xmas day, what is it that you are grateful for?

I will leave you with a simple and anonymous quote:
“Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness”

I wish you a beautiful end of the year, and please don’t hesitate to reach out, whatever you may feel. It’s an honour to read your messages.

With love and deep respect

Vanessa

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are healthy and doing your best to surf the waves life keeps sending your way. Yes, my intro sentence changed a little today, and its nice to have a change, somehow move forward. In meditation, we talk about stillness though; the stillness of the mind, even in a moving body and ongoing events around us.

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. This full moon week somehow felt like it held a lot of tension for many, navigating the roller coaster of our ever changing emotions, just like the weather.
