To pay attention ~

Greetings to all my precious people!!
It is the first day of March in a leap year!! And still, the remnants of Winter remain. During this transitional phase, warm sunny days are mixed with cold rainy moments as the Earth moves in her cyclical shifting pattern. Mother Nature continues to be our best teacher as she adapts and moves forward, mirroring our own Life pivots and shifts. We acknowledge the quiet phase of Winter for surely it is a reminder of the trust and faith we have that Spring will appear. These seasonal patterns reflect life lessons in persistence, patience, and promise. The message of this ‘in-between’ time continues to be: slow down, get quiet, and prioritize deep rest to support your own Spring renewal. continue reading
Combining potato gnocchi with meaty mushrooms is a surefire way to a savory dinner, but keeping things balanced is the secret to a dinner you’ll want to make again and again. Balance comes from balsamic vinegar in this recipe. Drizzling a few tablespoons in at the end, right before serving, brightens each buttery forkful. Try to use a high-quality, aged balsamic, if you can, as its thicker consistency and concentrated sweetness is the ultimate finishing touch. continue reading
Intuition is a powerful decisive tool. It’s that gut feeling that instinctively alerts you to if something is “right” or “wrong”. It ensures we respond in the moment. While not infallible, intuition is invaluable.
Intuition provides us with that internal gut response, or inner voice, beyond logic or learned responses, revealing both who we are and the knowledge we have gained.
If we listen, we can benefit from the inspiration it offers and the feeling of confidence that it provides. Let intuition help guide you. continue reading
We cannot live in a world that is not our own,
in a world that is interpreted for us by others.
Part of the terror is to take back our own listening,
to use our own voice,
to see our own light.

Greetings to all my precious people!!!
I inadvertently took a week off from sending out my weekly tidbits. I suppose an interruption here and there is a good test for my recovering Type A – hypervigilant – overly conscientious Self! But I am committed to the sharing and it is back on track now, so hopefully some part of this offering will be helpful to you, or someone you know.
We are in the midst of the seasonal shift, moving past the incubation of Winter into the gathering energetic Qi of Spring. This is a liminal space – the “in-between” space – before the snow has finally melted, before the crocuses are flourishing in their vibrant colored petals. It is a time that is perfectly suited to become more acquainted with our Heart, our inner Being, our divine Spark, our essential Voice and our unique Self. continue reading
