Gratiffirmations… What an interesting word! According to the DIVA Wisdom Circle dictionary, it is defined as:
noun; (GRAT-e-fir-ma-tionz)DIVA Wisdom Circle Dictionary
creating with the intention of giving gratitude while affirming yourself; giving gratitude; stating affirmations
Gratiffirmations welcomes you!!
Do you know the power of affirmation? Have you ever wanted to start or strengthen your daily gratitude practice? Do you see these 2 practices and wish you had the time to do either one of them — let alone both of them — on a daily basis?
Well then — you’re in the right place!
I aim to be able to create a Gratiffirmation in 30 minutes or less.
We should meditate daily. Gratiffirmations is an active meditation practice.
Meditation is known for its healing and restorative power. It is a catalyst for creativity.
Aren’t you worth 30 minutes a day?

INK Spots are inquires, notes, and knowings… These weekly prompts are offered as a way to get you to your painty table and ink up some pages along with some fingers. The INK Blotter is our newsletter. Inquiries, Notes, and Knowings in a more indepth discussion. The INK Blotter is where I share what’s going on in my world of intentional creativity: journal and painting processes, mixed media, livestream and special event information and dates, the antics of my 12 week old boxer and my 15 month old cat… It may also contain course and merch coupons.
Dear DIVA Downloads are love letters which I write to my Circle every morning. It is automatic writing that is part of my morning ritual and pour forth from my heart imbued with the love that I have for all of you. They are designed to be a guided meditation and should be used to help you establish or bolster a daily meditation practice.

Come get your gratitude on and receive regular inspiration and encouragement to solidify this daily practice as part of your devotion to the Divine (gratitude) and Self (affirmation).
And with that, I say with a warm heart and all the love I have from the over flow —
