A Present for You on My Birthday!

29th July 2014

Hello Love,

I’m waking up this morning in Southern California and beyond excited because today is my 34th Birthday! 33 was such a great year, but I’ve secretly been excited about 34. When I was younger, 34 was that mythical age that I believed would be the year that I made it with having the home, partner, business and life that I dreamed of.

The amazing thing is that I feel like I’m already there and life just keeps getting better and better. Many of you have been integral in making all of this possible, and for that I am incredibly grateful!

A good friend asked me the other day what I wanted for my birthday this year, and what came out of my mouth was this: a deep desire to have hundreds of people celebrate WITH me. Not celebrate me per se, but to use the occasion as an opportunity to celebrate our own abundance, love, light, shadows… and everything possible in between.

And you know, as a classic Leo, I really love a great party and naturally – the more the merrier.

So this year, I have a present for you… plus a way for you to get into the party and start one of your own.

I’ve been reflecting back on the Celebrating Abundance programs, and the one thing that stood out from both groups is that one of the hardest things for most of us to do is celebrate - truly celebrate - life.

Somewhere in the last couple thousand years, the true spirit of celebrating has been lost. Back in the day, whenever there was a change in seasons, rite of passage, full or new moon, holiday or anything significant, there were 2 things that happened – ritual to mark the occasion PLUS celebration to outwardly express love and gratitude. And it wasn’t just the big things – everything else that happened was celebrated, from the grapes growing or the animals mating to a friend just coming to town.

Ancient societies understood that for the universe (or God or the Goddess or whoever you want to call it) to continue to rein blessings on life, we had to express our gratitude and love for life - no matter what hand had been dealt to us. 

In daring to give, we open to receiving.

In daring to surrender, we open to letting go.

In daring to trust, we open to growing our wings.

In daring to celebrate, we open to grace. 

Now I’m not saying that we don’t celebrate like this today. I see celebration happening all the time at wedding, parties, bars and homes.

But two things happened. First, somehow someway, we began to see celebrating as bad. Or boastful. Or only for those who have a lot or a more perfect life.

And second, especially for women, it became unsafe and unseemly to shine or be in the spotlight.

And so, there became something lost in the translation around celebration– and what is missing, where we lost this ancient practice, is the intention and ritual that makes up The Art of Celebrating. 

I have so much to say about this in fact, that I’ve recorded a talk I give about The Art of Celebration and am providing it for you as my gift to you on my birthday.

In addition, I have a second gift for you: Today, I open the doors to a completely free offering called 40 Days of Celebration. It’s a simple practice outlined below. I invite you to join our private Facebook community where you can post you daily celebrations and celebrate each other within the group.

The 7 Rules of Celebration:

1. There is only one task per day- to practice the Art of Celebration and share it.

2. This is a 40-Day practice beginning whenever you begin- so if you join a few days late, no problem. Join the party when you are ready! There is no daily practice (for those of you who did the Celebrating Abundance: A 40-Day Practice {don’t fret- this is way less work).

3. There are no set rules. This is your party, and I invite you to celebrate however you love to celebrate, for whatever you want to celebrate.

4. Nothing is too big or too small to celebrate. Excited about your coffee today? Celebrate it. Pumped you got that promotion? Celebrate it. In love with life? Celebrate it. Having a horrible day/week/month/year? Celebrate it for the gifts of liberation it’s offering you.

5. Share your celebration within the private Facebook community and celebrate others.

6. Bonus Points: Share your Daily Celebration with the world via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #40DaysOfCelebration.

7. Extra Bonus points for inviting your friends to join in and create your own chains of celebration wherever you can!

In addition to the practice, I want to share with you one of my all time favorite concepts to teach: The Celebration Ritual. Please click HERE to read more about how to create your own Celebration Ritual. When you create one, share it in the group and with the world when you create it!

My vision for this year is that every one of us receives the gifts that The Art of Celebration can offer each of us when we celebrate with intention, grace, surrender and trust. I know last year when I allowed The Art of Celebration into my heart, my life changed in ways I could never have dreamed possible. Each of us deserves to celebrate our lives- no matter what is happening, how great or bad it may seem at the time.

 I believe that…

If we can master not only having gratitude for what is happening, but to celebrate it no matter what, then the world can truly change. {Click to Tweet}

A few weeks ago, I spoke about Liberation- if you have been releasing and changing things up in your life, no matter how hard or scary it may seem, celebration can help you let go what is changing, honor the role it played in your life, and usher in the new (even if you don’t know what that is yet) in ways that nothing else can.

 I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Celebration is the key to The Unbridled Life and to a few other concepts that I am preparing to reveal over the coming months.

If you can get the Art of Celebration piece down, the rest will be so easy, it will feel like…MAGIC.

In Liberation and Celebration,

Jen Signature
