Many people are hurting and suffering around the world. My heart goes out to each and every one of you in solidarity and unity. As difficult and heartbreaking as it is, this crisis is a wake up call that is shaking us on so many levels. We have the opportunity to shed, to release what no longer serves us, to grow in awareness, to stay open rather than contract, to utilize our gifts and to discover our humble place in the web of life.
I am praying for us all in these times of great change, transformation, and purification. When I sit in stillness, meditation and prayer— I can hear the call to surrender our illusion of control, to experience unity in spite of our illusion of independence and separateness, to sit quietly with our fears and plunge into the waters of the unknown as a collective. And let the waves wash over us.
BE FLUID LIKE WATER
When we regard and treat nature as teacher, we are able to open to her wisdom in all her manifestations. Can you feel the immensity of the ocean? The ocean came to me during several reiki sessions last week. It was soothing to sense her presence and be reminded of our ability to flow and adapt to life, the way water does so gracefully. To feel her ebb and flow. To experience the cleansing power of her waves. To completely immerse ourselves in her waters. And to trust the mystery of it all.
We are water, remembering our own nature.
In a world that prides itself in its yang, masculine, go-go-go activity—the call to pause, to reflect, and retreat—to keep everyone safe—can feel like death. And in some ways it is death—the death of old ways. The rebirth of the realm of the feminine is upon us.
HEAL OUR DISCONNECT
It seems as though we have forgotten how to connect to the deepest part of ourselves, to each other, and to the magical earth where we belong.
There is a beautiful spiritual principle from the Andes called ‘Ayni’ and it refers to the state of reciprocity that allows us to exist in a balanced, dynamic relationship to all beings, seen and unseen. It entails not taking too much, just enough, and expressing gratitude for it. Ayni invites us to care of each other and give back to Mother Earth—who has been neglected, abused, and desacralized for so long.
FEED THE EARTH-EARTH KEEPERS
Feeding the earth is about seeing her not as an inexhaustible nexus of resources but as a conscious being that supports our evolution and blesses us every day with her generosity. Gracias, Pachamama!
Our strength is in our connection with Her. We grow stronger as we slow down, nourish our roots, and connect our hearts with hers. We grow stronger when we allow ourselves to feel and experience the interconnectedness of all life.

This energy is soothing for our body, mind, heart and spirit. And for Mother Earth!

“If what I say resonates with you, it is merely because we are both branches of the same tree.” ~ W. B. Yeats
Beautiful ones, may we be the calm in the eye of the storm. May we feel rooted, connected, courageous as we stand on the shoulders of our ancestors. May we listen, deeply, with our hearts to what wants to be born—and from this space—align our actions with our deepest intentions.
With so much love,
