And in the reach of May
So cometh the tide.
The brightening sun
Brings the waves of life.
The choosing of the path
And the sewing of the ways
Creates the essence of being
And the content of all the days.
May Intuitive Guidance Reading
Ceremony – Invocation
We return to the Earth Magic Oracle Cards for this month’s reading and find ourselves with the same card as the month of March. How interesting!
In March this card discussed the “ceremony of connecting with ourselves”. The theme winds its way back to us this month as so many resonated with not feeling connecting with themselves or not knowing themselves in their current journey and life. Give yourself the time to refer back to that reading and its guidance if you feel so drawn. It is never too late to get to know oneself and to create those connections within. From there so much of value can flow outwardly to touch you, your life, those you care about, their lives, and the world. Treasure in the blink of an eye and the spark of a new day.
This month, the card brings us into themes of connection with the world, with this Earth of ours and our place in it. March is the month of the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere and today mark’s “May Day” and Beltane for those who recognize it. I looked up a few reference books today about Beltane, something I have not done in a long time, and lit a green candle as I sat to bring forward this oracle guidance. To receive the Ceremony – Invocation card after that, confirms a deep connection with processes and practices, with ancient ways combining with present moment. Nothing says that more than candles, books, oracle cards, intuition, and a laptop computer!
The cycles of the earth are something that Mother Earth does well. She understands her journey around the sun and throughout time much better than many humans do. Where the dependence on the land and the elements is direct for food and survival, people register deep within them, the seasons, the weather, and the days & nights. When food comes from faraway lands, crossing continents and oceans to reach mouths, it is no wonder than many people lose touch with how it happens and when in the course of a year. When homes, clothes, and power sources help to survive more easily with weather changes, again, perhaps, people find less association with what the seasons mean and how to navigate for one and all.
This reading knows it is saying things about the Earth and our ways that have been said before. Some people are highly aware and for others it is of no interest with differing immediate priorities in their pathways. So who is this reading for? It is for anyone who will listen, anyone who will receive, observe, and shift. Whether it is one sentence that catches the attention and stirs something within, or whether it is the entire guidance that resonates and vibrates with your being, this reading will have succeeded in its mission today with great gratitude.
There are many ceremonies people no longer realize are so, no longer realize are part of the passage of the seasons, the turning of the world, and the passing of time. The birth of a child, each birthday celebration, monthly cycles, holidays throughout the year, graduation for accomplishments, anniversaries, and more. There are many that are tied in with the Earth directly: preparing gardens, planting seeds, tending the plants, harvesting from planted and wild, preparing for winter, and more.
To some, these are not ceremonies but simply acts of time and of the seasons. Is there really a difference? Perhaps one… perhaps taking a moment to breathe with intention would be the difference. Perhaps that simple act connects with the vision and the reason why, bringing power, beauty, and grace to something that seems so basic.
Whatever you are doing in your day and your life this month, invite in the option to bring in ceremony. As basic as taking a breath consciously with the intention for the act you are about to take or do. Why are you doing it? What is the desired outcome for the act? Breathe your intention. Create the moment. And then act.
What would help you with what you will be doing? Add that in to your ceremony if you like. With gratitude if it feels good to you. “Thank you for helping me with _____” or “Thank you for bringing me _____ to help me with _____”. These not only invite in all of your own knowing through your brain, body, heart, history, intuition, and spirit, but also invite in energy of all that can be considered universe or divine or wisdom within and beyond the individual. Engage it all together, invite in the union with wisdom and the option to receive, as you experience and live.
Whereas at one point some may have considered ceremony to be restrictive and confining, this is bringing in wisdom with a flow that now wants to play and dance for the new day. Yes there are responsibilities. Yes there are commitments. None knows this better than the Earth on which we live. She strives for a balance and is committed to achieving it, through flow of huge phases and differing tides of life. Her creatures and components understand that there are ways in which life leads, ways that must be respected. As simple as the rising and setting of the sun reminds us of this.
So if you are in ceremony and you know there is a new and better way, bring the wisdom of what has been, what is ancient and valuable, and intertwine it with the currents that want and need to be. There is never a reason to forget, but there are many reasons to learn and to shift. Each breath you take is an opportunity for this, an opportunity that has been given by life itself. Your intention and your action bring it to life in ways that are needed now, and you are the gift that is needed to bring it. Each breath, each day, each ceremony, and each connection. What a wondrous world and a wondrous life.
May this month be filled with reminders of receiving and layers of connection with all of your intentions and all of your highest ceremonies. May they start with you and your heart, and flow forward forging new ground when needed, remembering when needed, and planting seeds when needed.

Choices & Perspectives through the Icebergs
May Intuitive Guidance Reading 2020
Once again, the monthly guidance reading is coming through the Earth Magic Oracle Cards. They are deeply connected to the world, to nature, as well as to how we work with it and how we work with energy, the universe, and with spirit. Gratitude for the guidance we will receive for our month ahead.
Iceberg – Submerged
After our Cave – Sanctuary guidance in April, this is a card that speaks to our times and asks us to choose how we step forward.
The two huge icebergs can come together and move forward in unity, each empowering the other as they traverse along the water. They can otherwise ram into each other, creating splintering, loud crashes, and faster melting. They could choose to pass each other by, acknowledging the existence of the other but not having anything to do with each other, continuing on their own direction and purpose. And the unseen could be that these icebergs are actually one, connected at the bottom under the water surface in huge magnificence even if there is some space, different perspectives, and even some divides above the surface.
We are able to choose which of the above scenarios we participate in in our lives and our world at certain times. Sometimes though, that choice seems very out of our hands and we do the best we can given the situation we find ourselves in. We are always able to choose how we react in those situations, what actions we take, what words we say, and how we step forward through it all. We have those choices.
One of the factors that helps us with these choices is perspective. Depending on whether you stand atop the iceberg, whether you are in a boat looking through the gap between, whether you are on the land or the ice flow beyond, or whether you are underwater looking at their icy bases and the life that flows around them, you have a very different perspective. Acknowledging that these different viewpoints exist gives you wisdom in how you speak and act to yourself and your own life, but also to others who are impacted in possibly very different ways. These are skills that can take ages to develop for some while in others come highly naturally giving skill in communication, listening, compassion, patience, and negotiation.
We can notice where we are only seeing a part of the image and not the big picture. We can notice where our own perspective can affect our view of the picture. We can also notice where some are blinded and not seeing the picture at all, or if that is actually us. These are not easy things to realize as they ask us for self-reflection, reflection on a local level, on a world level, and beyond. We can start by noticing and choose forward from there, course correcting as needed with learning, knowledge, guidance, community, and experience.
And as we are noticing, as we are learning and experiencing, the ice melts. The Earth calls to us with every piece that is sheered away from its whole, every piece that does the great separation as is falls into the water below. She calls to us as the pieces get smaller and smaller, separating and distancing. She calls to us as the bow of a great ship breaks through to create its own path not seeing the effects it forces behind it. She calls to us as the land watches wondering how it will survive when the water rises. The land embraces a new journey always but shifts and changes with the wind and water upon it, questioning the timing of it all, that we are not ready for this.
Mother Earth asks us to shift our perspective, from the one to the whole, from the me to the we, from the human to nature together, from the gain to the resource, from the challenge to the solution, from the denial to the learning, from the whisper to the knowing, from the “She is not needed” to the “She is everything and we are a part of She”. Huge, She knows! Challenging? Yes. Emotional? Yes. Possible? Yes. She believes. She keeps sending messages to help, messages to guide, options to embrace, needs to listen to that have actions to take. Embrace the shift and know the balance is there.
There is very little on her great globe that does not ask for effort. Some things do flow easily but many are entertained with intention, commitment, and action, feeling the effort with every step and every fibre of being. It is the way of life. It is the way of effort. The bird will soar on the air high up in the skies but first it must flap to gain the height and the positioning to then glide.
The perspective of ease and flow is magical. It is there and it does exist. Seek now the effort, learning, experience, and action that make up the step before the ease and flow. Seek now the perspective that lets you see from all needed angles and with all valuable wisdom.
You are not “only one being with little or no value to the whole”. You are an intricate part. In your caring for others, in your work, in your creations, in your actions, in your raising of young, in your learning from the old, in your choices, and in your breath itself. Everything upon She has its place even when we cannot see it. Find yours and embrace it! Bring yourself honour and value in each moment knowing your worth and raising others to know theirs. Together your perspectives ignite what is needed for all, but it all starts with choice. Integrity of choice put forward into actions others feel, see, know, and receive.
One droplet is contained in the mightiest iceberg and the greatest ocean. Without it, there is a shift that creates far-reaching ripples. Your droplet matters.
With love, hope, and gratitude,
and divine wisdom guidance through the Earth Magic Oracle Cards (by Steven Farmer, HayHouse.com).

Visualisez vos rèves, Clarifiez votre vision, Ressentez vos désires et Créez votre horizon avec la magie de ce jour!
With the power of the Strawberry (Rose) Full Moon that started this week leading to the Solstice on Friday, it is a powerful week for getting clear on our visions for the next phase. This came through in my Live reading session in my Oracle Cove group this week and wanted to be shared!
What is your vision for your next phase? What are the desires, goals, objectives, and dreams that you are wanting to create and experience? If you could feel a certain way in that vision, how would you feel?
This is a great time to update or create a vision board or a vision book, to write out your goals, and to get clear to help you see your way forward. The horizon is there for you, it is above the clouds this week. Time to take active steps and identify your vision! There is magic in this day and this week. Embrace it so that your now helps to create your vision!
Watch my Time to Create Your Vision video here https://youtu.be/0rFNavAGFp8

Heritage and History
This is a big country. Canada has a huge expanse of land and water. It spans larger than most with much of it wild and untouched, allowed to respond to the elements and to nature with those who understand her best.
It has an incredible history. The heritage of Canada comes mostly from the history of other peoples, those who travelled far and wide trying to improve their lives, to take care of family, and to seek opportunity in various forms. Not much has changed really; people still come here hoping for a safer, more abundant life. And then there were those who were here to begin with and thankfully are still here.
On a recent road trip with a great friend, we allowed the road and some very basic plans to guide us. What fun! With over 1500 km of exploration, we visited suburban areas, country areas, agricultural areas, artistic areas, and a good number of First Nation territories.
With great interest and respect I looked up about some of these territories as we drove through. One in particular on Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron, Ontario, provided a fantastic history review on their website. The Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory makes up the homelands of the Peoples of the Three Fires Confederacy: the Odawa, Ojibway and Potawatomi. These Anishinabek tribes first experienced the European contact as early as 1610. 1610!!! That’s over 400 years. Quite the journey of trading, treaties, agreements, and arrangements, challenges of “other peoples’” plans, religious intentions, and more, finally keeping control over their lands and thus the “unceded” designation and a place in the history books. Proud and strong.
Living within the influence of Montreal, I sometimes forget how huge this country is. Driving through these different places, we only touched on a tiny portion of it. I was reminded of the importance of history. Remembering where a country came from and how it journeyed to where it is today, the good and the ugly parts, is vital to being able to progress with value and respect forward.
Through our drive we also saw regions that indicated English, Scottish, Irish, French, Spanish, and Dutch heritage. Even more were probably present. We also visited a Norwegian connection in the Muskoka region, valuable in the air battle training during World War II. Neither of us knew of how Norway and Canada were involved together and continue this friendship and allied connection today. Extra meaningful for my friend with Norwegian roots! I was reminded of the gratitude for the team effort that happens with allies during any kind of battle and recovery time afterwards.
Heritage and history, it touches us all and is a part of us all. The more we learn about it, the more it should be able to help us see our way forward. It should allow us to better understand each other and what we value and require for a fulfilling and joyful life. We still have much to learn and much to apply but I, for one, am incredibly grateful to be sharing this journey with such an incredible place and all the peoples, lands, and waters, which are considered today’s Canada.
What a great way to end off the month which started with the Adventure Oracle Card! Adventure it was!

It was a great day on Sunday at the Buddha Bazaar in Montreal organized by Meagan Gibson of Zetï! Wonderful vendors, readers, speakers, and musicians!
C'était une belle journée dimanche au Bazaar de Bouddha à Montréal. Des gens impressionant qui vendaient, faisaient des lectures, des présentations, et les musiciens!
During my presentation I touched on some of the ways that we all receive intuitive guidance. Then it was time to pull cards! With the Autumn season starting, the Full Moon upcoming, and a lot of shifting going on, it was a great series of readings for the group present and listening.
Here are a few key points from the cards as you head into this next season and this bright moon. They all most applied to those in the room but also feel like they will help a wider audience, hence the share! Take what feels right, true, and helpful to you!
Identify and intend what you would like to be creating during this new next season phase. Also identify what it is time to let go of, what you don't need to carry forward any more with you! There is something you can just let go of now, release it, so you are lighter and more able to create what you want and need moving forward.
Remind yourself of all the successes you have. You can start with the smallest ones, did you shower today, did you have breakfast, and all the way up to the huge things you have accomplished and are accomplishing - finishing a degree, creating something that will impact and improve the world, etc. The more challenging the phase you are in, the more you can go to small successes to celebrate and see the promise of the next new moment.
Ancestors - at this point in history, many people may be sensing that they are bringing or are a source of bringing up knowledge and wisdom from their ancestral lines. This is very powerful. With this will often also bring up a need to heal certain things from those lines, hurts, disappointments, anger. You may be the one, the person who gets to play a big part in this. What is important is to remember the balance between both sides of this ancestral part. As you feel or know that some of the challenging sides are coming up, also remember the wisdom, the good sides, the amazing things about those times and those people, whether you know them or not. You will sense the wisdom, you may already be expressing it in your life. They are requesting that balance so that you do not only see the hurt and the struggle and so you do not forget about their other skills and wisdom!
If life gets very tough, very difficult and hard to deal with, the guidance yesterday was, for anyone feeling this way, to find something in this very moment that you love. It can be anything! Could be your cup of coffee, could be a tree, an animal, a person, a blanket... find anything that you love, keep going through until you find that one thing in the moment that you love. Hold onto that love in the moment, let yourself really feel it. That is the start of the journey back into your own life. Repeat as needed whenever needed.
And Strength... know that you have incredible strength in you. Noticing those successes and good points in your life is important for this. The ancestral wisdom and skills also come into this. And allow yourself to know you are never alone. Reach out to a human, reach out to spirit helpers, reach out to energy. You have strength, you have courage, you have excellence. And you are not alone.
Wishing you an amazing Autumn and I hope the Full Moon was blessed for you!
with love, Sheila

May the New Moon bring you peace.
May it bring you healing and calm.
May it help you see where you are and your way forward, granting you sight beyond your eyes, listening to and through your heart.
I was blessed with some outside wild garden and forest time today. Letting it bring me renewing energy and healing from a cold that thought it would come to visit.
Seeing this phase of my meadow area was quite amazing. Lots of aster flowers blooming on their bushy plants. As I stood among them with the breeze blowing, I could hear the buzzing melodies. On quick glance, the meadow looks quiet, only plants moving in the wind. On closer look, each plant was a flurry of activity flitting and flying from flower to flower.
All different bees and wasps feeding and gathering. Wonderful buzzing as they travel and work. The occasional butterfly floating through too. In that moment, all of life was expanding before my eyes, so much, so vibrant, so amazing. What a blessing to witness.
And then a walk through the woods. Sensing the trees whispering to me and to each other. Touching their unique bark imprints, wrapping my arms around their full trunks, honouring that I get to share time and space with beings so much older than I. With much gratitude.
If you have the opportunity to be outside today, even if it is to stand on your front steps, to feel and breathe, enjoy it.
New Moon blessings,
Can you find the stick-type walking creatures on one of the purple asters?
Life beyond what we see in a moment.

The Power of Love… When Love is the Way…
These were the two repeated phrases in the beautiful address to the wedding couple at the Royal Wedding on Saturday. Like some of you, I watched and enjoyed the spectacle and the pageantry of the Royals. It was nice to see something very joyous and positive on live television! I also noticed how this wedding was a testament to the couple being married, their lives, their goals, their wishes, their history, and who they are as individuals and as a couple starting life together. I wish them well, all the best, health, togetherness, companionship, and a life of joy and love.
The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church spoke fabulously to the couple, the church attendees, and the world. His words struck me then and still do as I watch him again. What an amazing wedding legacy to have these words recorded and given to all. I believe it is a gift the couple and the Bishop have brought us without possibly intending to on such a huge scale. I accept it and I carry it forward with me.
Here are the words that touched me the most. If it suits you and speaks to you, I suggest you taking the 14 minutes to watch (see the link below to watch). He is entertaining, the chapel is spectacular (I can attest to that having visited it), the couple is in love, and the audience is filled with royal and celebrity faces. People were brought to a point to reflect, to listen, to feel, and to have seeds planted. This is not always easy when it is out of our norm or comfort zone but it can be spectacular in its effect. I feel there is potential for great healing to come from this ceremony for those present and for those who were witness to it. I feel it reminds us of hope for our species and our world, and that each and every one of us have a part we play in this.
Excerpts from The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex:
“There's power in love. Don't underestimate it. Don't even over-sentimentalize it. There's power, power in love.
The reason has to do with the source. We were made by a power of love, and our lives were meant - and are meant - to be lived in that love. That's why we are here.
Where true love is found, God himself is there.
God is love.
There is power in love.
There is power in love to help and heal where nothing else can.
There is power in love to lift up and liberate when nothing else will.
There is power in love to show us the way to live…
Love your neighbour as yourself.
Love of God and Love of neighbour hang all the law, all the prophets,… everything that God has been trying to tell the world… Love God, love your neighbours, and while you are at it, love yourself.
Live that love, and in so doing to change not only their lives but the very life of the world itself.
Real power, power to change the world.
The good of the other, the well-being of the world…
Think and imagine a world where love is the way.
Imagine our homes and families when love is the way.
Imagine neighbourhoods and communities where love is the way.
Imagine governments and nations where love is the way.
Imagine business and commerce when is the way.
Imagine this tired old world when love is the way…
When love is the way, poverty will become history.
When love is the way, the earth will be a sanctuary.
When love is the way, we treat each other like we are actually family.
If humanity ever captures the energy of love, it will be second time in history that we have discovered fire. We must discover love, the redemptive power of love. When we do that we will make of this old world, a new world.”

Rejoice in Your Tribe
Do you have a “tribe”? I don’t mean your family or the heritage people you come from. They may be great and a part of your tribe for sure, or they may not! I mean the people you choose to spend time with, to give and receive energy from in ways that make you grow. The people who raise you up, who bring you to feel better by allowing your true essence to shine with support, care, and sharing of knowledge. And you will do the same for them. It does not mean the communication is all flowers and butterflies, sometimes it can be very raw and real but the base is always of care and respect and no one is left to feel beaten down or less than.
Whether you are physically meeting with these people or connecting in other ways, there is a mutual interest and excitement to connect together. Interest about what is happening in each other’s’ lives, interest in the journey you are on, and interest in where you want to go and who you want to be, as you travel forward.
I have been fortunate to experience these types of relationships and groups. People circling around from different sources and contacts to meet up regularly or periodically. I so look forward to having time with them! There is a joy in the connection and always learning as we express and receive together. Usually a lot of laughter too! Remember that your tribe can be people meeting and sharing about anything! I do not believe it has to be subject based but you may find that it tends to flow around something in common. The idea is how the people come together, how they are allowed to be and feel as they meet and share.
So, who is your tribe? Do you have any kindred spirits that feel like they are or would be in your chosen circle? If it does not feel obvious then let it sit for a while. Think of those you most enjoy having time with and expand from there. If you genuinely feel there is no one but that you have an interest in this type of a connection, it may be an opening for you to explore, to see who is out there that may enhance your life as you meet and that you may enhance theirs!
May your circle be full of joy.
May your tribe be nourishing.
May you reach out and find understanding.
May you be easily found when you may be a source to others.
Coming full circle, creating together.
Individual lives connecting for a greater whole.
Expanding and rejoicing,
Essence in flow,
Rising up, together.

Tis the season! Halloween, All Hallows' Day, All Saint’s Day, Hallowmas, Samhain, All Souls’ Day, and the Days of the Dead are found around October 31st and November 1st in some traditions. This in part marks when there is belief that the veil between spirit worlds is at its thinnest and for some is the start of a new year. Celebrate in whatever way suits you, open up to the possibility of greater connection with spirit but also with your fellow man, we are all in this together after all.
Last week, I wanted to post a reading… I was asking about “struggle”, about what we can do if we find we are struggling with something or many things in our life, in whatever way we perceive those struggles. This was sparked after several chats with contacts and friends as well as seeing people’s posts online. In response to my thought about “struggle”, the card I pulled was from the Soul Coaching® Oracle Cards and was amazingly the “Peace” card. I felt the connection with the card, the need to shift our perceptions and our goals to what brings us peace, how we feel peace, how we are aware of our thoughts and feelings, and breath. The affirmation of the card is a beautiful one “I breathe deeply, knowing that all is well in my universe.” All is well. I breathe. Basic yet powerful.
I was all prepared to write a reading to share as I have done many times before and as I love doing, but the reading just didn’t happen. The struggle became one of creating a reading for others to read! How’s that for wackiness? Since then, the card has stayed with me for 6 days, behind the scenes, working and waiting. It even came up in two client readings on the same day, different perspectives for them, but there it was!
Now when I say the Peace card was working and waiting, it is the connection between my highest good, the card, the guides working through the cards, Spirit, the Universe, and the highest good of those who cross paths with me and my work. All those coming together with me as a person and with my life, here and now. With peace we are flowing. And I take a deep soulful breath. Peace. Ahhhhh.
I am grateful for signs that have come to me during these days. They remind me, they support me, and they help me to connect as well with my oracle intuitive self. Blessèd are the signs and gratitude fills me for my spirit team. They are a patient bunch!!
After a weekend full of family events and other types of work, I realized heading to bed last night that we are at the culmination of this season, the phase when many intuitives and psychics feel there is an even greater mystical quality to our world and our connection than usual. That is saying a lot, because the mystic and the connection are pretty huge all the time! The sense of peace and hope filled me with renewed vigor. The actions steps and plans started coming through, tugging on me like a child who is asking for attention. Bless you spirit kids, sparking creativity and inspiration always. My heart fills.
So the year begins, a great opportunity to reflect, regroup, refocus, and reconnect. Let’s start with some cards and welcome in all that our highest selves have to say as they connect with spirit and the universal forces. Peace.
Blessed Halloween and Samhain to you!
Shaman – Ancient Healing Wisdom
Connecting at this time of year is really about connecting with all that we are and all that has come before us. There is such knowledge in our history, things we learn from and things we still need to learn. Such vast expanse of information that it often overwhelms us. But with a beautiful deep breath, we can come into a place that allows it all to come together. This does not mean that we know it all consciously but more that there is a knowing that it is all out there as well as within us, the knowledge is that of the whole, not that of the one. The whole is where the true power is, whether we are speaking about the whole of an individual, body, mind, spirit, soul, or the whole of a society, world, universe. When the one becomes greater than the whole, it is time to refocus, relearn, and rebalance.
For those who sense a skill in connection with ancient knowing, with spirit, with mystic, this will be a phase of more and greater. The potential to do good is astounding. Step out of the way and let it happen. Turn to others for those skills you do not have or do not feel are your focus and your peace. They will benefit then as you will. Be active in your potential, working with freedom and flow, working with ancient and new, working with known and to be discovered. We are all there, we hear and we know, we speak and we listen. Be well so your gifts can be cherished and be of benefit to you and to others.
“I unconditionally accept, cherish, and love myself just as I am.”
(Please note that the Shaman text was written before I turned this card over. The cherish word is beautifully and meaningfully tying the two cards together and a strong message to us all. I love it when that happens.)
Everyone is at their own phase in the journey of this life. Some will be self-accepting and accepting of others, some will still be learning these skills and lessons. Your task is to start with the self, to start with the I am. Loving yourself just as you are opens the doorway to more acceptance, cherishing, and love, for you and from you. If the doorway is still elusive or in the process of being built, then draw yourself a window. Create it open slightly, at the bottom, the top, or the side. Let the flow start to come in, this is your choice, and you may start the design any way you wish, but start it, do not sit in a closed room, your essence is too wonderful for that.
One of the most challenging things for people can be to accept another who is different or at a different phase. When you let yourself see and feel them at their core of heart, soul, and energy, there is not much room for judgement or criticism. Accept that they are where they are in the hopes that they will accept that you are where you are, as they may find that just as bizarre or challenging!
It is time for the heart to come out of the box, time to lead with the heart. This does not mean one has to be all fluffy and lovey all the time. It means to approach yourself and others with heart-centred and heart-oriented acceptance and compassion. These qualities lead to behaviours which lead to ideas and inspirations which lead to changes and progression for the whole. As one of the whole you will benefit too so allow acceptance and compassion to flow. Give, if only from the heart, give. You will be amazed at what this can and is already sparking.
Until next time,
Love and Light.
