Exploring Sacred Mornings: Gratitude and Boundary Setting

Hi Lovelies!

I’ve initiated a new practice and I invite you to join me on this journey. Lately, I’ve found myself waking up in the early hours of the morning and appreciating the quiet and sacred energy that fills these moments. Although I’ve tried to go back to sleep initially (as being awake at 3:30 am seems unconventional when the world is mostly asleep), I’ve learned to embrace the peaceful early mornings.

During a recent chat with a friend, she suggested that I connect with Anya and seek guidance through automatic writing again.  I used to do this regularly but hadn’t done so for a while and she encouraged me to explore what insights Anya might offer.

With this guidance in mind, I decided to give it a try. I began by noting down three things I’m grateful for, coinciding with a practice I assigned to my Advanced Channelling Students as their weekly at-home exercise. I’m excited to share this process with all of you.


  • I’m grateful for supportive friendships and students who believe in me and care about me.
  • Had such a ball shopping with Hannah yesterday; she is such a joy to be around. I love spending time with her. (Hannah is my teenage daughter).
  • Very grateful that Gerald cooked me dinner while I taught my channeling course last night. He is such a loving and supportive husband, and I am so grateful for his love.

ANYA – What can you teach me about how to set boundaries?

We are blessed and happy to blend with you in this way, Lisa. This is a multi-faceted topic, as I’m sure you are discovering through your recent experiences with setting boundaries. It can be as simple as the one you created today, which was not to open your laptop until the family has all left the house. (I didn’t open it – Yay for me).

One choice is to help Hannah learn her lines and to put priority on her in the morning as well as enjoying Jesper (our pup) and interacting with the family. We suggest that you begin setting boundaries first by working out how to create space. We suggest you focus on segments of your day and focus on what you are getting rather than what you are missing!

Think of boundaries, in the beginning, like a door. Sometimes you open them, and other times you don’t. Yes, while it may seem simple, isn’t that what the active mind is craving? Simplicity? Boundaries are about holding a container and choosing what to fill it with.

It’s a choice between option 1 or option 2.

Values also play a part in helping you align with doing the things that bring you happiness and contentment.

This week’s prompt

For this week, for anyone this resonates with, I’d like you to share this practice with one other person. Teach someone else how to write a love letter from your higher self or spirit guide. Elizabeth Gilbert inspired me to start this process and also to share this idea in her words: “You are always free to share what you have learned from me here; I don’t own this idea, and all I want is to see it disseminated in a love-starved world.” I couldn’t agree more!

You can join Elizabeth Gilbert in her community here and if it resonates, join me by subscribing to my newsletter below.

All my love,

Lisa xoxo
