What is Giving Thanks

In 2010 I created Giving Thanks to invoke community spirit and activate gratitude in all souls.

Giving thanks is a practice.

At first it doesn’t come naturally. 

But with INTENT, the mindset and frequency of Gratitude become second nature in our being. 

With Gratitude, gifts are bestowed, including the gift of a better life.

When we practice gratitude, we make a loving impact on the world.

GIVING is the foundation of a new way of being – a new model of self-governance, kindness and authentic living. On this new earth we no longer need permission to be creative, to be heard, or to be seen.

It all starts with gratitude…

Big Love,

Love from the
Giving Thanks Community

I absolutely love my freaking Astro Diary, I have about 4 -5 Diaries but this one is my favourite! And I want to find where I can order next years – and buy it already, because that’s how much I love it. I’ve followed Astrology my whole life, but am only now going deeper into it and I swear by it. I love it. And I love working with the Universe and the magic within the universe.

There is much to love about The Astro Diary – the feel of it, the layout is enjoyably accessible, in a way I’ve not seen before. It is this unique approach, from the language used, to Ariel’s original drawings that sets it apart. More importantly, The Astro Diary is filled with deeper Esoteric Lore, and in these times of rapidly popular trends, authenticity is everything.

I’ve been using my Astro Diary religiously since I got it. It’s the only diary I have successfully written in every day since purchasing it. I love the astrological insights and it helps keep me in touch with the moon phases and how they affect me. I would (and have) recommend this diary to anyone wanting to deepen their knowledge of the planets and of themselves.
