Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Mind, from the Chakra Insight Oracle Card deck, by Caryn Sangster, artwork by Amy Edwards Published by Blue Angel Publishing

The Mind: “Openness, Flexibility, Imagination, Learning”

“Your mind is the architect of your experience. There is no limit to what it can create.”

Card Story: “Within the calm focus of a single moment, a young woman trusts enough to look within. Through the window of her mind, she is drawn through stars and galaxies, beyond preconceived notions of the possible, into the far reaches of the Universe. Her heart is open. Her spirit soars. She is at peace, aligned with the infinite beauty of her true nature. Mind.”

Card Message: “Ancient wisdom keepers knew that the best way to harvest the infinite power of the mind was to keep it focused upon the highest aspects of truth. Through mantras, prayers, songs and communions, they trained their minds to deliver clear visions to the infinite wellspring of their subconscious. In this way, they created worlds.

Our mind can be our greatest ally and our most challenging foe. With our mind we focus the lens of our being and with that focus, energy grows into our reality. Close your eyes for a moment and capture a snapshot of your thoughts. Are they holding visions of your highest potential or are they spiraling in the other direction?

It is time to sharpen your awareness of the activity of your mind and to call upon this incredible resource to be a true and trusted guide. Train your mind to focus on the positive aspect of life and to remain open to new concepts and ideas. Whether you enroll in a class, learn a new skill or enter a new meditation practice, now is a great time to expand your knowledge – and enrich your ability to harness your true mental power.

Part of developing the gift of our mind is to learn how to focus, while remaining open to new ideas and higher ways of thinking. We must resist the temptation to get locked down to what we think we know. Be willing to let go of rigid judgments and fixed perceptions. Stay loose and open to the potential of something new entering your mind.

This card also encourages you to take time to dream and to use your imagination. Time to allow free flowing thoughts and to strengthen the more creative side of your mind. Time to trust your intuition and make choices occasionally from a ‘hunch’ or a feeling rather than from a well thought-out rational plan. Just allow your mind to settle and follow the flow of life. A calm centered mind can easily align with the flow of higher guidance. Find out what creative, imaginative places your mind can travel to, if you let it loose!

Expand and free your mind… and the rest will follow.”

~ By Caryn Sangster

The mind unleashed is our most powerful tool. Not out of control, but just free of the limitations we put on ourselves. The ego keeps us in check. It worries for us, keeps us ‘safe’ and protected from harm. It keeps us small, telling us how things might go terribly wrong if we put ourselves out there. It reminds us of all the other times things did not go as planned, and demands that we stay fearful, doubting our true potential.

But this is an invitation to see what else is possible. Where else can the mind wander? What can it create, dream up, imagine. Practicing mindfulness can bring a new awareness to how we are holding ourselves back. We can see where we dream something up, get inspired but do not take the necessary action to bring it to life. Where we let fear take the wheel. We choose the safety of the known, even if it feels old and stagnant. We stay small when we could step out into the world in a much bolder way.

Open your mind up. Give yourself a chance to explore. Meditate, contemplate, expand your awareness. Make new choices. Create something new.

It all starts in the mind: the dreaming, the exploring, the creating. But then the next step comes. Action. Bringing it from the unmanifest to the manifest. Breathing it to life. Taking the risk.

Take the time to dream and conjure, but know that action is also required. Again we are reminded that March is a month of doing, not just dreaming. It is of putting your focused intention into birthing something new.

Namaste

The Akashic Field

Published February 15, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Akashic Field, from The Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor, Artwork by Cheri Polk and Emiliano Villani

The Akashic Field: “Like the The Akashic Field, the aurora borealis flows with energy and brilliance as charged particles from the sun interact with atoms in the earth’s atmosphere. The 93 million miles from the sun to the earth is nothing compared to the limitless consciousness of the Akashic Field. All information, power, energy, and experience vibrate within this realm of unending truth and possibility – and every bit of it can be yours.

Receiving this card tells you that amazing opportunities abound at this time. You can increase and accelerate the experience by opening the doors to the Akashic Records. Your life-force energy resonates with Universal synchronicity now, so you can explore the Records and receive exactly the information that you need and the energy that can help. Engage in this pursuit with a conscious focus. Write your intentions and ask for inspiration. Meditate on the Akshic Field and visualize your goals. The Universe is ready and willing to align with your heartfelt desires, and now is the time to make them happen.”

As Challenger: “The Akshic Field as challenger indicates a time of fragmentation and agitated energy within or around you. You may be going through some sort of crisis, or you may be on the receiving end of some grief or hostility, which is really throwing you for a loop! Your worry and panic is splitting your energy and causing a frantic vibration.

You need to know that the Universal consciousness of creation is still available to you. Eternal inspiration is always vibrating around you, but until you calm down and rein in the emotional intensity, you will be like a radio station tuned to the wrong frequency and picking up only static.

The Field – and the world – is filled with potential solutions to the very problems that are making you upset. So stop, take a step back, and try to get a new perspective on things. It may be advisable to look into past-life influences, for they vibrate in the Akashic Field as well.”

Akashic Force: “Close your eyes and imagine yourself entering the boundless and brilliant Akashic Field. It’s almost as if you are stepping upon the Milky Way, and all its stars roll out before you, offering their light and power. Feel this profound force igniting your dreams and lighting your way.””*

Today is the new moon, the darkest night of the month. A night of the brightest stars if the sky is clear. The day of planting seeds, of setting intentions and of acknowledging the magic and mystery at work. February is a month of no full moons, and this new moon falls right in the middle of the month. There are powerful energies at work here, use them wisely.

Again I ask, what do you wish to create? Now is the time to create it! A new moon ritual is in order. It is really important to get clear on what it is that you are desiring to manifest now. What inspires you? Why do you dream the dreams you dream? How would it feel to live the life you wish to create? Focus on these feelings now. Write them down. Make an altar. Light a candle. Meditate. Contemplate. Breathe deeply and Create.

Make a vision board, a collage or paint a picture of what you would like. Write about it in bright detail. Make a wish and know that it will be fulfilled. See yourself walking through the Akashic Field, dancing through the stars and pulling the magic down from the unmanifest realm to the physical plane through the portal of energy that is today. Know that this is the point of creation and the manifestation is to come. Expedite the process by having faith, surrendering to the process and knowing that what is yours will come to you.

And so it is

Namaste

Remiel ~ Mercy

Published February 3, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Remiel ~ Mercy, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Remiel ~ Mercy, from the Angel Blessings Oracle Card deck, by Kimberly Marooney

Remiel ~ Mercy:

“Truly, truly, I say unto you, you will see heaven opened,
and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”
~ John 1:51

“Remiel means ‘the mercy of God.’ Mercy is justice tempered by wisdom, which grows out of knowledge and understanding. Divine mercy represents a technique of adjustment between perfection and imperfection, or fairness, and is one of the basic concepts of creation. Since God knows everything about each of us, it is easy for the Divine Spirit to forgive. ‘God’s mercy endures forever.’

Loving parents could not possibly withhold the wise ministry of mercy from any of their children. We are directed to follow this example and ‘love our neighbor.’ The better we understand our neighbors, the easier it will be to forgive them and love them. We have been taught to fear and hate the differences between cultures and religions. This ignorance has caused persecution, wars and the extinction of many of Earth’s indigenous peoples. Deep in your emotional body is the guilt and rage for your part in this horror. You may have been a prosecutor in one life and a victim in another. The beliefs that resulted from these experiences are being replayed in your life now. Ask Remiel to open your eyes and heart to see how you are repeating your part, over and over again. As you watch the news of religious wars and ethnic ‘cleansing’ feel your rage and hurt over this behavior. When you see documentaries on the destruction of rain forests and the tribes whose homes and lives are being lost, allow your feelings of rage to surface. Look back at the mass slaughter involved with the Holocaust, the Cambodian Khmer Rouge and the American Indians. What are your feelings?

If you experience a sickness in the pit of your stomach, overwhelming grief and a feeling of disgust, that is the start of your healing. At first you may wonder how people can do those things or feel the terror of the victims. As you gain courage to accept the rage and its resulting viciousness within yourself, you will know that under certain circumstances, you could do those things. Have you been in a relationship that made you want to kill the person? Usually guilt overrides those impulses. Rather than accepting the feeling and using its power to effect a positive and creative change, it is usually denied and pushed away into dark and angry impotence.

Rage is the most frightening of all the emotions because it can make you want to do harm to those you love. How do you attempt to control your anger? Do you hold it in quietly? Do you run away? Are you afraid of losing control? Do you burst out in a temper tantrum? Have you hurt others before? Eat or starve yourself? Exercise? Blame others? Do you have illnesses related to unexpressed rage? Do you do crazy, impulsive things? Does guild hold you back?

When someone in  your life triggers feelings of rage, this is a blessing sent by Remiel and your Eternal Self. Begin with gratitude for being able to feel this trapped emotion. Call for God to guide you through the experience. If it converts to fear, accept and express these feelings also. Don’t let guilt stop your expression. At some point, the intensity will pass. If you are consumed with grief, accept those feelings too and cry your way through them. Eventually, you will just feel empty, tired and have a tremendous sense of relief. Call to Remiel and God to fill you with mercy, love and compassion. Open your mind and heart to new ways of resolving the conflict, then take action.

This rage is actually between you and God and has nothing to do with other people. Never hurt yourself or others impulsively. Rather, channel the intensity into a safe release session. Rage is a dangerous force. Any time you feel too much pressure in a situation, leave or stop. Bring the light into your places of darkness at a comfortable and safe rate. Never try to force yourself to heal too quickly.

God patiently waits for you to desire divine mercy and compassion. There is great joy in the heavens when you finally accept the comfort of Spirit. Remiel inspires the higher impulses and spiritual emotions. He guides the leaders of our communities and countries to incorporate fairness in their constitutions and rule. Merciless dictatorships eventually disappear and those who have made a place for forgiveness in their hearts shall assume leadership.”*

~ By Kimberly Marooney

Rage as healing. Feeling down to the depths of your emotions in order to finally release them and set yourself free. Rage trapped in the body becomes disease; deep down we know this. We know that past hurt pain and trauma is trapped in our very tissues. Rage will clear it.

But rage is scary. It feels out of control. Crazy. We like to feel civilized, refined, together. We don’t like to lose control.

So how else can rage be acknowledged? How else can it be released from the body? How about drumming wildly? How about using your voice? Maybe writing a scathing letter, even if you burn it later. Maybe dancing around a fire… throwing something (not someone, even if you want to!!) in… something that represents that situation or person. Not like a voodoo doll, but a representation of sorts.

The rage needs to come from the inside out. In a way that feels right and authentic to who you are. To who you were before the rage happened. Like a controlled burn. It doesn’t need to get out of control, it just needs to vent. To be expelled once and for all.

Then the healing can really begin.

Are you ready Dear Warrior to deal with your rage?

Namaste

Ascended Master Serapis Bey and Clear Calcite

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ascended Master Serapis Bey and Clear Calcite, from the Crystal Mandala Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Jane Marin

Ascended Master Serapis Bey and Clear Calcite: “Karmic Grace”

“We bring you the blessing of Karmic Grace. There are many ways to learn and grow, some ways are joyful and some more challenging. Sometimes a challenge can best be resolved through profound struggle that forces you to transform in such a way that you can never go back to what has been. The struggle might have been deeply painful for the mind, body and emotions; and yet what is gained from that experience is a multiplicity of blessings – personal power, freedom, insight, self-respect and wisdom. These qualities then help you live a better life where that past pain need not be repeated. Blessings can at other times be gained through joyful experience. Sometimes the struggle is what will bring you the greatest joyful experience. Sometimes the struggle is what will bring you the greatest spiritual progress; sometimes a more joyful path will be how you grow best. The Universe loves you with such passion that you shall never be denied what you most need and what shall help you fulfill your divine destiny.”

The struggles we encounter in life can be challenging enough without adding unnecessary guilt, shame or judgment into the mix. There are times when the path of life becomes easier, more flowing, effortless and shining with radiant grace  – and in those moments we feel as though we are doing something ‘right’  and the Universe is affirming and validating us. Everything just falls into place and we feel blessed.

What can be more difficult to accept is that there is grace in the struggle too. The Divine, in its infinite love for you, will empower you to fulfill your innate potential. For some, that may be a gentler journey of progress less challenging to body, mind and soul. It may be entirely appropriate for a particular soul to be in a lifetime focused on tranquility and feeling supported, rather than being thrown crown chakra first into the upheaval that typically accompanies intense spiritual transformation! There may be times in your life, even if you are one of the souls here to experience growth, where your path is gentler, brighter, more effortless. When this happens, it is what will serve you best. Even the most intense paths that include experiences of trauma or abuse – perhaps especially those paths – will need times of lightness and joy.

Your life path will unfold in whatever way will most benefit your soul growth. What you need to remember is not to judge yourself, or think that you are doing something wrong when life gets difficult. It is actually a sign that you are going through an accelerated phase of spiritual growth, and the blessings that come from it will be what you need and want the most. There is a temptation to judge oneself in the struggles of life, to wonder: Why am I not getting this? Why am I in pain? What am I doing wrong? This must be karma! And then guilt, shame and judgment make the situation even more difficult. Don’t do this to yourself, or to others.

When there is struggle, there is opportunity for breakthrough to be grasped by the soul. This opportunity can come to you through this method of growth. You’ll have other times that are more joyful too, so there is no need to worry. Some souls choose to have lifetimes where much struggle characterizes the earlier the earlier phase of their life, preparing them for great work – and a much lighter and more joyful experience – in the second half of their life.

If you have been puzzled by an experience in your life – a difficulty, or perhaps even effortlessness – and you are trying to make sense of it, relax. Accept that karmic grace bestows upon you the best way to grow and manifest your divinity in every moment. You don’t have to understand it, but to accept and trust it, you need to believe you are truly loved by the Universe.”

Healing Process: “To integrate this guidance, you may like to say this invocation now:

‘I call upon the Ascended Master Serapis Bey and the Crystal Angel of Clear Calcite who love me unconditionally. Thank you for the divine healing blessing of karmic grace. I surrender with relief and loving trust into my life experiences now. The struggles and the easier times serve me perfectly. I do not resist. I use my free will to move through every experience offered, even when it doesn’t make sense to me at the time. I accept the gift of karmic grace. May that grace bless the lives of all living beings. Through unconditional love and my own free will, so be it.'”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

We must release the idea that we are constantly being “punished” or “rewarded” by the Universe for certain behaviours. We also must release the superstitious beliefs we have that we can “jinx” things so that they will not turn out as planned. Instead, we must take responsibility for our behaviors, and see the lessons that we are being offered in different situations. If we are repeating patterns, we are not learning lessons that our Soul had contracted to learn during this incarnation. If we feel that we are being punished, maybe we should look at where our hand in the situation lies, and whether we attracted this particular challenge to us through our guilt, shame, regret, anger or fear towards the person or situation we are dealing with. Or maybe that is where we constantly focus our attention, and since we have not been able to move past it and start fresh, we keep drawing in the same type of scenario over and over again. But again, it would be for the lesson we are refusing to see or learn. 

Then there are the curve balls of the Universe. The natural disasters, the acts of terrorism, the illnesses and accidents that no one saw coming. Those happen in spite of everything and not because of it. There is a bigger picture here, whether we can see it or not. That is when the importance of Faith comes into play. What do you believe in? How much do you trust? How can we come together in these times, lean on each other, heal each other, hold each other tight? Love is huge here, the only way to soothe the devastated heart.

Here we are being offered a gift, the gift of Karmic Grace. We are being offered a “get out of jail free” ticket and we should take it and run! Life can be tough, it can be challenging, it can drain our inner resources. This is a chance to offer up the challenges for Higher healing. For transmutation; alchemy.

Let Serapis Bey lead you out of the darkness; it is time to step into the Light. Offer up your lead for gold. Let go of the struggle. Embrace the new.

Namaste

The Ancient

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Ancient, from The Faery Forest, by Lucy Cavendish, artwork by Maxine Gadd

The Ancient: “Elder, Experience, Lessons”

“The Ancient is so old she is almost beyond time. She is able to speak the truth without compromise – as are you, when this card comes to you. She is so old, has experienced so much, learned and taught so many lessons, that she has become powerful and influential, just as you are becoming, too. So too are you growing older, coming into wisdom. She knows that while others are now going to come to you for advice and guidance, she sees your humanity – your faults and your flaws and your feelings of unworthiness. She wishes to reassure you. Others will come to you, seeking knowledge, awaiting a blessing, an initiation, and oblivious to the consequences of the path they wish to walk. Wisdom, true wisdom, understands complexity and you have developed this quality. The Ancient is honorable and human, and yet more than human, and she is courageous and has made sacrifices – as have you. She sees straight through comforting illusions – as you do.

She represents ancient tradition and the challenge of defining the self, yet remaining within a tradition that you value – and this too is one of your challenges. So take responsiblity in your life. You will face the battle of choice, and you will be the antidote to gurus and dominant personalities who claim to have all the answers. The Ancient recognizes the challenge of being a teacher. This immersion in a world to learn the ancient arts and venerate wisdom and old ways can be expressed in many forms, but everything you are now learning has value. She is the repository for ancient secrets and the contact between worlds. She is wise – and she has learned to consider every word that falls from her lips, even as she longs to call out for freedom.”*

This card is a message from the Ancients, the Elders, the Ancestors. It is a calling, a beckoning into the realms of Sacred ceremony. It is drawing us towards something so much more important than the physical and material plane; the plane of illusions.

This is a message of some urgency. The next step on the ladder of your consciousness has revealed itself, are you ready to take the next step in your awakening? For the next step leads you deep into the forest of your Soul. This is not about the superficial issues that we concern ourselves with every day. Those that we waste so much time and effort worrying about. Those which steal our energy and our focus. These must be left behind for a time while we find something much more profound. We can no longer be held back by the smoke and mirrors of our perceived unworthiness, instead, we must see the magical connection between All That Is, Was and has Every Been. And our part in it.

Are you ready, Dear One? Can you feel the restless deep within? Abandon your fears and come with me, your Ancient Ancestor. Learn my wisdom, that which resides within you always. Rise above the mundane to explore the sacred with me. See the world in terms of magic; of sacred geometry and of energetic connection. See how vast you are in the plan.

Awaken and take your place within the circle of life; hand in hand with your Ancients. Remember why you are here. Remember your power to heal. Remember your power to create. Remember you have no limitations; infinite time and space.

Breathe it in

And Awaken

You are needed

Now

The Butterfly Ferrets

Published December 15, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Butterfly Ferrets, from the Oracle Of The Shapeshifters, by Lucy Cavendish

The Butterfly Ferrets, from the Oracle Of The Shapeshifters, by Lucy Cavendish

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Butterfly Ferrets, from the Oracle Of The Shapeshifters, by Lucy Cavendish

The Butterfly Ferrets: “I am reborn”

About the Butterfly Ferrets: “The butterfly is the ultimate symbol of transformation. The ferret is mistrusting and alert and repels those who would do her harm. This strange combination will see you safe at this time of vulnerability and new power, for while you are reborn, you must have protection – and will ensure you are safe in this moment of highest danger. The butterfly is the symbol of the changing self, who somehow is the very same creature it was before; it dwells in one form, enters a time of stillness, and then emerges. The butterfly’s transformation is a heroic journey through elements, the dissolution of self, the apparent destruction of form, and the struggle to be free to fly. It is no easy task for the butterfly to emerge from the cocoon. It involves moving through a transition zone that is tight, as a baby through the birth canal, and in doing this, its green blood is pumped and squeezed through its untested wings. Without this process of restriction and transition, of something to drive oneself against, there can be no flight, and thus no survival for the butterfly.”

If you were to see a cocooned butterfly struggling, you might feel overwhelmed with compassion and wish to help free the beautiful, emerging creature. But if you cut a butterfly free from its cocoon, ti’s wings will never be strong enough to take flight. The blood will not have been pumped through the wings – the very thing that must take place for the creature to fly. So you can see that we must all experience the struggle at some point – or we will not be strong enough to fly.”

The Butterfly Ferrets Speak: “You have been through a time of great challenge and difficulty. You feel new, vulnerable, and inexperienced. You thought you might not survive to see this day. But now it is here, and you are drying your newfound wings in the gentle sunlight. For this moment, just one moment, know that there is nothing for you to do but to take in the significance of the change you have shaped for yourself. You have changed. You are renewed. You have passed a great test. And now, you are reborn. It is a dangerous time, but you are protected greatly right now. There will be sentries who will alert us to your every need, and you have time to grow into these wings and learn how to use them. For now, take your time, breathe in the new air, and taste afresh the sweet times of life.”

Divination: “You have changed and are at a very new stage, with very little experience. While the Butterfly Ferrets celebrate you and your transformation, they are watchful – so they send you these alert, aware young ones to keep safe your borders while you find your feet, shake of the shock of birth, and set your new direction. You will be protected at your most vulnerable. You will not turn back. You cannot go back to the womb. You cannot go back to sleep. You cannot be as you were, because you withstood the tomb of the cocoon and have resurrected in this lifetime. You are beloved, and the Butterfly Ferrets celebrate who you have become.”*

Your only danger is being sidetracked by old, outmoded belief systems… coming from the outside from those who may have your highest good in mind, but not necessarily at heart. People may mean well, but they sometimes do us more harm than good, by giving advice that comes laden with their own fears and limitations. Guard your dreams like tender shoots in a sudden storm right now! Don’t go around telling everyone your deepest desires, for they may just talk you right out of them. Stay true to you!

Surround yourself with like-minded people who love and support you and your dreams. Know that you are being protected by the Universe, but it may not be timely to wear your heart on your sleeve. There will be time in the future for you to unveil your new life and all your fabulous creative ideas… but it is not yet. Take action but do not seek advice unless it is from a trusted mentor with an open mind and an open heart who supports you completely. Steer clear from those who you know may shoot you down when you are vulnerable. You know exactly who I’m talking about!!

Know you are protected and success, prosperity and abundance are just around the corner.

Discretion, patience and perseverance are key!

Namaste

The Novice Of Avalon

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Novice Of Avalon, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

The Novice Of Avalon: “Innocence ~ Beginner ~ Ignorance ~ New Skill Without Practice ~ Unstable Curiosity”

The Messengers OF Avalon ~ The Novice:

“Innocence, naivete, foolishness, early knowledge not yet integrated, the ability to see the world untainted, and learning ability – these are the aspects of the Novice as she appears in your life.

The Novice is reminding you to be teachable and humble. If you do not know something, do not pretend that you do. Chances are that you will make an error that may cost you more than you wish to pay.

New information is coming, and this is the time to be open to learning and expanding. The Novice also reminds you to be like a child and remember the wonder and awe that you once had for the world around you… when discovering magic was an essential part of everyday experience.

The Novice reminds you that you need to stop and ask yourself, “What lesson must I learn here?” The lesson is always mirrored in the experience in front of you. Dig deep into the workings of whatever situation you are inquiring about. You do not have to look far, for the answer is right in front of you.

Sometimes it may feel as if you have two left feet and do not know how to dance, or that perhaps you are fumbling in the dark and fear that you may be left behind. It is all right to be in the “not knowing.” This is the place where new understanding takes time to integrate.

Be gentle with yourself. The greatest gift The Novice reminds you of is that you are always at the beginning of some area of your life. Patience and slow movement is requires when The Novice appears.

Before moving forward, perhaps you need time to journal your thoughts and receive clarity about what the mystery invited you to learn. Then rejoice! The Novice of Avalon is on a path to higher knowledge and abundant manifestation and does not stay a Novice for long.”

~By Colette Baron-Reid

The energy here is of a puppy or a child; it is curious and enthusiastic even if a little messy and untamed. This is positive energy to move forward with, as long as it remains in this realm and does not stray to reckless or risky. There is so much to learn, it may be hard to focus on just one skill at a time, yet if we can try to employ patience, learning one step at a time, we can harness it’s pure creative energy and use it to manifest some pretty amazing things!

We are held back by so many rules; trained to colour within the lines, stay inside the box and not to rock the boat… to name a few cliches we are burdened with over our formative years. Yet, if we can go back to dancing, painting, running and jumping in puddles with the wild abandon of a small child, we can find a whole new way to look at the world.

Through new eyes, fresh and pure, untainted by the woes of the world. With this energy we can simultaneously heal and create. We can do it as we laugh and skip and twirl; make daisy chains, hug trees and chase the dog around. We can approach the world with curiosity and big, expansive love.

And in doing so, we can make a difference.

Namaste
