There are many a post or meme about the importance of Gratitude. Its a buzz word in the holistic, spiritual and psychological road to contentment, peace and wellness. Most people have felt it, showed and practiced it at some time and some may practice it sporadically here and there. Few however practice it regularly so that it becomes a daily exercise like cleaning their teeth and washing their face.

If you have never believed in magic, then you need to try a little sprinkle of gratitude. For me, practicing gratitude as much as possible has always proven, without doubt, to bring a little bit of magic to ones life.

The premise is simple. We think and then we feel the emotion/feeling of gratitude and appreciation for something in our life. In turn the universe, made up of only energy and vibration, receives YOUR vibration of gratitude, and returns it in like. As many have heard before, the more you have to be grateful for, the more things to be grateful for, come your way. But thats not it’s only magic. The other magical gift gratitude offers, for free, is to provide a beautiful contentment that settles into the bones and becomes a vibration that you wear for the days ahead. The more you practice, the more the vibration of contentment vibes a little brighter. The more you practice the more the feeling of having and being enough sits




Back in March of this past year , when we were moving into our first lockdown,…I wrote a blog called

“The Time of Kali – How we are transitioning from the ending to a new beginning. “


This blog was a continuation of the original piece I wrote in 2017, called “In the Time of Kali” http://www.jojayson.com/time-kali-riding-winds-change/

where I spoke of …

“times of great upheaval, chaos, discord and big change. Big change rarely comes without disruption to the status quo and a slow death of something that used to exist, to make way for a new beginning…..a new way.” © Jo Jayson 2017

I explained the energy called Kali-Ma…

“the energy of Kali-Ma, a feminine destructive and often terrifying force of creation that destroys all that needs to end, and clears the way for the creation of a new beginning”

And I talked about a new paradigm being birthed ..

“One based and grounded in compassion, cooperation, empathy and justice for all. There is a new voice being heard, a rising of the feminine aspect in all humanity – not just women – and a yearning for those forgotten and struggling to be seen and heard.” © Jo Jayson 2017

Since I wrote those words, we have indeed seen much upheaval and an uprising of humanity against a toxic system embedded in greed, power and deep corruption. We have witnessed clashes of idiology and values, and hatred and fear spew up and

A Sunday Thought



A Sunday thought… I was thinking today about how so many right now are so stressed with anxiety and fear, surrounded by the toxicity of hate rearing its head amidst our own communities and villages, and in our country at large. Our despair of the uncertainity with the virus coupled with intense and real fear of what this historic and momentous US election may bring…. I see people rattled with anxiety of impending doom and yet feeling and fearing a beautiful hope in the same moment. I say, that on this rainy slow Sunday, we take some time to breathe……rest and dream. For it is not in our crazed work or in our angst, that dreams come true. Instead it is in the power of our thoughts and visions and actions. This is how we raise a vibration, this is how we dream a dream into being. This is the right way to pray. There is a new beginning being birthed right now, I’ve written about it so many times over the last 5 years. Its messy and its chaotic and its painful…..but its being birthed because of our collective desire for change, peace and harmony. Its coming, but our fear can make it more painful…. I say today we take a pause, be gentle with ourselves and others, focus on that which is beautiful and light, connect with that which brings you harmony and peace and allow that to carry

THE TIME OF KALI - How we are transitioning from the ending to a new beginning

Kali-Ma- The Dark Mother © Jo Jayson 2015

Way way back 5 years ago, in 2015 I painted Kali-Ma, the beloved but much feared Hindu Goddess. At the same time as I was painting her, the Empire State Building displayed her image on its facade….. coincidence it was not.

In 2017, two years later, I wrote a blog called “In the Time of Kali”, which stated that we were in a state of chaos, disruption and disorder, which would bring about the end of the old ways….and make way for a new beginning.

(you can read that blog below in just a minute)

Right now, we are moving through what will be the last part of the eye of the storm. Yes, its taken a long time, and this storm still has quite a lot of havoc to play out before it is over. However, many of us find ourselves in lockdown or quarantine and we are forced like never before in our time, to settle down with ourselves, in the shelter of our own homes , alone or with our families and asked to have faith that the new beginning will be coming soon.

In the the 2017 blog below, you will read about the energy of Kali-Ma, a feminine destructive and often terrifying force of creation that destroys all that needs to end, and clears the way for the creation of a new beginning.

Since I painted Kali in 2015, and then wrote my piece
