Acts of love...

by 3 January 13, 2012

In this Month of Gratitude, 
acts of love are born...

Every day from Jan 14 to Feb 14 
I invite you to join me in sharing one daily, 
random act of kindness on our Facebook page.
These stories are a gift to others no matter how big
or small and although sharing these stories with each 
other will be the best gift..  On Feb 14
I will gift a macro sterling silver heart rock
from our Share a Heart Collection,
to one random writer.

These acts may be to call a friend you know
has the blues, giving a a single flower to a stranger 
on the street, making broth for someone who is sick
holding a door for someone with a load or picking up 
litter for a block on your way to work. 
The choice is yours.

These random acts of love will not only liberate joy
and beauty in the world around us but reignite the
love affair within.

Join me? 
feel free to invite your friends;-)

for the love of loving ~  Gisele

(At day 3 after talking to some people that asked if they could use an alias name or talk about someone else's
act of kindness to not seem boastful.. This exercise is not about the 'I', it's about creating a blanket of care for others
and what an immense gift that is for ourselves. We are connected !)

On the topic of retreats, a friend recently shared scientific research she found (brain scans incl. long term studies of individuals) comparing mindfulness/meditation practice in retreat settings confer more benefits than daily practice. If you take two individuals with identical lifetime hours of meditation practice, there are more lasting changes in people who have gone on retreats (brains and behaviour).

This week I was thinking about how challenging it can be to be who we are and live in our place of heart when there are so many directives and expectations that we should behave in a particular way. How we present ourselves to the world and how we think are so influenced by our upbringing, peers and culture...

Mindful Necessities West to East

Rumi says "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do." I'm counting my blessings, both having carved a life by creating contemplative jewellery and now also enjoying the opportunity to create experience for people though retreats. 

 It took a long time for my body and mind to readjust from east to west, as it always does. Between the 10 hour time difference and the culture extremes, the practice of coupling patience and tenacity definitely came in handy.
