THE POWER OF POSITIVE: Actions of gratitude -- for the health that we do have, even when it is challenged -- help to create wellbeing in the future. Join Colette in creative action by making a visual reminder of a positive thought.
You may remember Colette. I went to her small town in Michigan to do a "Miracle Makeover" in her home; providing her with a "healing room" during her very difficult chemo series. Well, she is through chemo and is living life one grateful day-at-a-time. For the last two years! Yes, it has been two years longer than the dire pronouncement the doctors had given her. One of the processes I did with Colette was a color meditation and art therapy session in which she painted this affirmation.... " I am well in every cell..." If you are feeling a little achey, or blue, just try saying it to yourself. If you are feeling just fine, you can try it too. Gratitude makes us feel better and tells our cells that they are truly well. I hope you have a beautiful Thanksgiving week. Know that Colette and I appreciate you and your kind thoughts throughout this journey. Colette's story -- and room -- were published in Guideposts Magazine: True Stories of Hope & Inspiration.
TRY THIS LITTLE PROJECT: Get out some markers, colored pencils, or crayons. Also, a piece of paper or scrap. Write the above affirmation or create a gratitude statement of your own. Then, ask your heart for a color to represent your gratitude. Wait a minute and a color will pop-in to your mind! You don't have to think -- your heart will tell you what it wants ... doodle a design around the words using your gratitude color. Fix it to your refrigerator for Thanksgiving week.
