The season of Autumn arrives early in the morning on Saturday September 23rd, reminding us that we need to prepare for the long, cold winter that will follow. Observe the natural outdoor environment and you notice the squirrels burying their acorns, the leaves falling from the tree limbs, and the many birds migrating to warmer climates. Nature herself is preparing to be quiet, be still – and this encourages us to continue to turn inward, to reacquaint ourselves with our inner thoughts, our deeper longings, and reconnect to our inner wisdom and innate knowing. continue reading
Our true nature is like a precious jewel ~
although it may be temporarily buried in the mud,
it remains completely brilliant and unaffected.
We simply have to uncover it.
~~ Pema Chodron
Change is in the air. You can feel it and see it! The shifting seasons in the North East have recognizable cycles and patterns and during the transition to Autumn, the wind becomes more brisk, temperatures cool, the sun rises later and sets earlier as the contrast between light (Yang) and dark (Yin) is more evident. The Earth moves along her path towards the quiet and stillness of Winter, as the trees drop their colorful leaves in the practice of letting go and surrendering to the cycle and pattern of The Way of Nature. In a little over a week, the Equinox will occur on September 23, signifying once again a moment of perfect balance between Yin and Yang. continue reading
“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart.
Do not despair if the answers don’t come immediately.
Some answers are only revealed with the passage of time.”

Everything in Nature contains the Power of Nature

Dear precious people …
The season of Great Yang continues in the Summer of the Black Yin Rabbit. The energetics of the Sun, the pulsations of the Earth and abundant vibrations of Nature emanate at high frequency. This is also the time when we, as sentient beings going about our daily lives, are infused and invigorated by the unseen frequencies inherent to the planet we inhabit. We are part of the interconnected web of Life, made of “starstuff” according to the astronomer and astrophysicist Carl Sagan. In November 2022, the European Space Agency released audio of the Earth’s magnetic field that was captured from space. Listen to some amazing sounds of the living planet here: continue reading
My dearest people …
We are in the deep middle of the Season of the Heart, where the energetics of the Sun are strongest, sending us Vitamin D and serotonin, and the Earth is alive with an abundance of colors and fragrances. Flowers are feeding the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, and the bunnies scampering in the grass are so abundant this year! We are midway in our journey through the Year of the Yin Rabbit, and the message continues to be: cultivate inner stillness, inner quiet, and reconnect with our innate wisdom and guidance by aligning ourselves with the coherence of our hearts. continue reading
