It is time to Slow down, Pause and Breathe.
Feel what happens in your body when you do
Come home to your body and spirit, as you connect with that still place inside of you where you can feel your breathe and your own heart beat.
Feel the innate reassurance that flows in with your intentional pause & breath.
This is very important right now, especially, for those amidst turmoil or change.
Allow the fear, worry or confusion to drop away.
Stop trying to find a solution, or answer to your current questions.
Invite calm in, nurture that space, make choices that bring a sense of being settled and more at ease.
The answers, and solutions, will then find you...once you are aligned with the truth...that everything is ok, you are and all is fine....trust and love are your deeper essence. Not fear & anxiety. Those are constructs of the mind, our family structures and our culture.
Trust what to do, or not to do, by trusting your intuitive body...sense and feel.
You will rediscover your faith, breathe more easily and clarity will arrive at your doorstep.
The dive heralds divine support, and connection back to a state of love, grace and trust.
Nurture the serenity within.
Be the love you are today.
Be compassionate and patient with yourself and life.
Slow down. Pause. Breathe. Love.

Life grows in the shaded spaces and things may not be as insignificant as they seem!
Fir Club Moss flourishes in the shade, and is a relation of the club mosses of 360 million years ago that in fact grew into 130ft tall trees!
A revered herb of the Ancient Celtic Druids and by the Nitinaht of Vancouver Island, Canada.
Our often imbalanced perceptions of size & significance can lead us away from some important messages.
Something "apparently" small and insignificant may have entered your life, which may prove to be very powerful.
Size doesn't matter!
Pause. Reflect. Notice.
The energy of the Fir Club Moss brings great blessings to you, if you are beginning new relationships, and/or new projects.
We are also reminded that humble beginnings can yield unimaginable rewards.
Perhaps you are now more fully stepping on to your spiritual path?
The first step on your path, with your project, or relationship may not necessarily give you a dramatic, or mystical, experience.
However, there is great power inherent in beginnings!
In time you will look back and realize how much your life has changed of this one seemingly small step, or choice.
Fir Club Moss energy also brings in clarity and perspective that may have eluded you due to emotional attachment.
Clarity comes now.
You are exactly where you are meant to be at this point on your path.
Clarity, initiations, & beginnings are underway, however subtle.
Momentum and power are building for what is yet to come, from these apparently small steps.

With the coming July Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse tomorrow, we are being invited to keep our compass, stay our course, and yet take some time of rest to gather our strength for what lies ahead!
Full moons invite releasing of outmoded, old, unnecessary and unhelpful ideas, old goals, and misaligned beliefs.
Eclipses can often bring the shadow side of things to the surface, internal resistance and possibly external obstacles testing our resolve.
All the more connected to the watery emotional energy of grandmother moon. Its rebirth time!
Momentum is building for what is being birthed.
As we move through the birth canal, the intensity and awareness of the unknown aspects of "what's next", is palpable!
The challenges, or perceived obstacles or "unknowns" can seem insurmountable or slightly out of reach.
It's ok, if you are not sure where to begin you may have never done this before!!!
So, how could you know?!
You are charting new territory and this "first" will really test your WILL and INNER STRENGTH in new ways!
Stay your course!
Stand for what you want.
Even if its newly chartered and brings up doubts. Watch your ego's attempt to sabotage. Regroup, rest and reorient your compass when you get of course!
Not everything manifests in a linear way!
Some times opposing forces can crop up to challenge what we are headed towards, or attempt to thwart our path. If this happens, this is a time for assertiveness and staying your course!
Be wary of unworthiness and passivity seeping it's way in.
Rest. Regroup. Reorient. You are birthing something new, or amidst a birthing of new feelings, experiences, beliefs and opportunities and need also to take some rest now to keep your will strong!

During this up & down month of July, with several planets in retrograde, we are being invited to go with the flow dear ones!
The great earth mother is more than 70%water. We are 70% water. As the earthly waters, our emotional bodies also ebb and flow with the cosmic changes of the moon, the sun and planetary sisters and brothers.
There is rythym in the oceanic ebb and flow, yet within that relative predictability is the variance of the waves and tides, which has remained for millions of years. The art of living in healthy relationship with the ebb & flow of life is to join the fluid nature of your emotions but not to be captured, or capsized by them!
Be mindful of becoming obsessed with a particular fluctuation in feeling or mood.
A greater understanding of our emotions, and when/how to express them, can be gained by ...
-Flowing with what we are feeling at the moment.
-Embody your emotions, so they can move freely.
-Stay open (don't deny) feelings of hurt, anger, sorrow...through feeling them you can understand them (& yourself) better.
-Don't cling to those emotions you often deny once they rise up. Be mindful not to over indulge in them as you can inflate them beyond their most true momentary real state.
- Watch your "practiced patterned response" of smoothing over feelings you try to keep under the surface.. this creates constriction, binding you to what wants to move up and out freely...so it can rise to the surface, be seen , heard and change!
The word emotion roughly translates, in origin, to mean "to emote"...." to move through/out".
Allow yourself to float, rise and dip with your emotional waves this week.
Have compassion and patience in your observation of self, and others.
We are on a accelerated and expansive ride at the moment. Hold on & go with the flow dear ones.

A few years ago, as I was mowing the grass of my property, which is steep and large enough, I became inspired! Inspired to some how shorten my 3 hours of mowing!!! Out of "nowhere", the inspiration to create a space for walking meditation landed!
I became inspired to mow a spiral labrynth at the top of my land.
A sacred spiral for walking meditation, for self inquiry, for soothing the sometimes overactive mind, to create pause and to connect more intentionally with my land.
I walk the spiral as a journey inward to my heart, to Spirit speaking through my core.
Sometimes, I simply walk and allow my senses to drink in the moments of each step. One. Step. At. A. Time.
Other times, I begin with posing a question, and then take my first step inwards.
At the center of the spiral I stand and allow whatever guidance is flowing through me, or to me, to have space to be expressed.
Often, I take gratitude offerings of a flower, crystal, or berry, to leave at the center. The times I do not, I offer my hands to the earth in gratitude.
There is a lot of spiral energy present with this July New Moon, Solar Eclipse and phase of the current celestial dance.
We are all part of the Universal Spiral of life.
If you are experiencing a greater time of reflection, and/or change in your life it can be helpful to pause and spiral inward to your heart to feel & listen
And, if you have a lot of extra lawn to tend to...maybe you want to mow a spiral into your grass as well??!!
Create a sacred physical space to share among your family and friends.
My children love to take turns mowing it. I offer it to my clients and visiting family and friends as a sacred pause in their lives to spiral inward and spend a few moments mindfully present in their hearts and life journey.

Happy Canada Day!!
On this July New Moon & Eclipse week, we are reminded of the Spiral.
The healing journey is one that expands our consciousness, over and over again.
It is time for the old skins to be shed.
It is time for the exhausted paradigm to complete its dissolution in the psyche, and the heart space.
It is time to birth a new reality. One that spirals upwards & outwards.
Time to surrender to the natural laws of death & rebirth.
Soften, and with gratitude, honour the old parts of You & Your Life...for they have served you in some important ways. Their purpose now concludes to bring you to the precipice of your new reality.
You will go on. Your life will renew. Your life force will expand. You are allowed to change....to become, unveil, create your essence in this life, right now.
You are needed in this collective human & soul journey, in your highest and most loving capacity.
Your new skins may feel vulnerable & unsettling at times...everything is ok.
Direct your compass to what you want, not all the things you 'need to change' about yourself. You have already let this go...no need to scrape the last remnants of the old off of you & your life...its already gone.
Focus on this soft new tender skin.
You are growing and changing.Blessed be!
