Today’s Miracle Moment is About About Celebrating the Harvest.

In the Northern hemisphere, it’s the fall season. The leaves are changing, the temperature is dropping, and cozy sweaters are coming out! Traditionally in North America, fall has also been the time of the harvest celebration, where farmers would celebrate and give thanks for the harvest of crops that would get them through the winter

Cultures all over the world practice the importance of celebrating and giving thanks for what we have.

At different times of year, harvest celebrations take place all over the world. These often include community festivities and gathering together to enjoy the fruits and vegetables that have been harvested. In the US and Canada, we have Thanksgiving. In Bali, Indonesia, they have a rice harvest festival which is dedicated to the rice goddess. In China, Taiwan and Vietnam, there’s the Moon Festival, where they encourage the harvest-giving light to return again in the next year. In Ghana, there’s the Yam Festival, which celebrates the first crops of yam.

It’s important that we all take time to celebrate our own individual harvest, too. So often in transformational work, it’s easy to stay focused on what you want to change or shift about yourself or your life. It can be easy to get in a constant “healing” mode and lose sight of how far you’ve come.

Living just 10% more in the Miracle Zone can bring us more happiness, joy and fulfillment in the present moment while helping us move towards our bigger miracle intentions.

We loved this idea that we can make a 10% change, because it’s totally doable. Often we have our eyes on the prize of the huge miracles we want in our lives. And while big miracles can sometimes happen quickly, they also sometimes come through slow and steady steps forward.

Just as the harvest celebration is a key part of nature’s seasons and cycles, take this time in your own personal cycle to celebrate yourself.

You can explore: How have you grown so far this year? How are you showing up differently? Maybe you’re experiencing greater peace and happiness than you did a year ago, or maybe you’ve found resilience in the face of challenges. Or maybe you can celebrate that no matter what, you keep showing up for yourself, and you’re learning and growing.

When we take time to celebrate our own personal harvest, it actually creates more to be celebrated.

Take a moment to take a deep breath into the belly. As you breathe, be grateful for how far you’ve come and how engaged you are in life. Recognize the sensations in your body that come with that celebratory feeling. As you do this, you’re telling the cellular structure in your body that all is well, and your body can memorize this feeling so that it is your regular state of being.

This week, we invite you to continue to celebrate yourself and how far you’ve come. Take yourself out for a celebration of a personal harvest time and enjoy the fruits of your labor before a new season begins.

We’d love to hear from you! In the comments below, share with us how you’ll celebrate yourself.
