Hello Dear Friends,
Hoping you are all enjoying the sunshine and the long days of summer. I am so grateful to have the draw and time to be in nature with these warm, sunny days. I have been devoting one day a week to a new hike to attune with the beauty around us and it has been so healing! This has been a very intense time for us with all this cancer water energy taking us deep into our emotions and calling for integration, healing, and acknowledgement that we are more than our thoughts and bodies. I have noticed that the more I allow myself to surrender into my feelings and trust my feelings and intuition the more wisdom is available to me guiding me towards paths that my mind would have never devised on its own.
As we move into this next lunar/Leo cycle with the new moon on Wednesday, I am feeling the call to return to my deepest heart felt truth. I have noticed my call to clear away the excessive, unnecessary, and worn outs in my home, my routine, and my relationship to myself and others. I feel nature inviting me to strip away the distractions and the obstacles that draw me further from my most deepest desires that come from my soul. My intention is to get clear and align with that truth and allow it to expand me and break me open to all the new ways I can be present in my life.
Nature is quite the mirror and its reflection is always so full and abundant but never echoing anything other than authentic "beingness". The flower is always just a flower in its most beautiful embodiment and never aspiring to be a butterfly or a river. May we all allow our attunement to our emotions to call us into the space of the heart so that we can be led to a more heart centered joyful practice of being exactly who we are meant to me. Blessings and love to you all!

"The healing and awakening is to fully surrender into the mystery of perfection. That we do not have to understand completely the reason for what is happening and how we inwardly know what to do in each moment. The mystery is to tune into what you feel and to be in absolute integrity in your truth. We never need to hold onto to anything for fear of losing it or never receiving it again. Cultivate the ability to let go of anything that is not 100% in truth even if you cannot see what the possibilities are for when you surrender. This process will cultivate a faith that it is not our responsibility to know and control what comes our way but to create the space for it."
Love and Light,
