Fovever Free In the Sea Of Divinity!

Namaste Divinely Designed Freedom Floaters!

Fleeting July Greetings! Thank you for being here for this month’s communication as it comes in these final days of jubilant July. As we began the month with our annual American celebration of independence and freedom, we will attend to that important awareness and theme here and now. As a gateway, here is a colorful recap of our SEAing the Divine co-creation celebrations this month at Spiritual Life Center! For indeed, creativity sets us free as an open doorway to spirituality!

 As reported last month, my sacred Sundays are now in spiritual community with the littles and middles at Spiritual Life Center. We are finishing up a 9 week inspiration exploration celebrating our divinity with the infinity of the sea! Our weekly Creature Teachers have helped us explore our own divine design and we have had some wonderful, colorful co-creations of art in our Sunday celebrations! Each Creature Teacher is truly an AHmazing testimony to divine design. This intersection of information & inspiration ~ science and spirituality ~ is working well for us. Shout out to my super son Jeremiah who, over the years has truly opened my mind and heart to the wonders of science! And! YouTube is quite the place with a plethora of possibilities we can integrate into our celebrations. Here is the YouTube video of sea turtles we had going pre and post program this last Sunday followed by a brief overview of this month’s Creature Teacher’s and the spiritual principles we explored with them. The finished integration of all of this information & inspiration is still forthcoming to the Leaping Literacy Library spiritual literacy section so stay fine tuned if you’re interested in any or all of it. Either which way, for now, enJOY this grace filled glimpse as we breathe free in the Sea of Divinity!
YouTube Video: Relax with Sea Turtles:

We started week 1 this month with Jellyfish:

                                           Freedom is truly found in The Flow!

Week 2: We explored all kinds of Breath and Play ~ including Bubbles ~ with Dolphin!

                 Creature Teacher Dolphin knows to Be Here Now and Breathe!

Week 3: We told whale tales including a metaphysical version of Jonah with WHALES!

             The biggest creatures on earth have a lot to teach about BIG LOVE!

Week 4: More stories and an array of crafts and play were explored with timeless Turtle!

                Turtle teaches us that we are always home and protected. And that yes, slow and steady makes for the pace of grace which is the surest way to win any race!

Week 5: This upcoming 5th Sunday has us embracing narwhals, the unicorn of the sea, as our Creature Teacher of divinity!

AHmazing Artic Sea Photo ‘borrowed’ from Kids National Geographic, thank you!               Our Narwhal Creature Teacher helps us SEA, we can Be Unique & Swim Free!

The final share I have from our creativity and spirituality this July at Spiritual Life Center is that the church put some kitchen kits together for local refugee families through the World Relief project. Youth and families were able to add our touch with hand painted cups (I baked at home!) The slip inside each of the 16 mugs reads, “Hand painted with Love by the kids at Spiritual Life Center.” Yay for us! May our touch of Love be truly felt by the receiving families …
So! Yes, good hearted times this month! I have also had plenty of family as always … a few trips to the mountains … dad’s 92nd, Jeremiah to band camp, visiting Silver Lake and visioning for our annual Feathers Of Freedom Family Camp coming right up August 18-20. REALLY looking forward to being in the sacred Sierras with the beautiful families and peeps of all ages in our creativity & spirituality playtime! It’s not too late for you! Be a Free Spirit with us for this wonderful weekend! In case you are called, we still have a cabin for you!

Our self guided Forgiveness Footprints Path is one of many optional opportunities at Feathers Of Freedom to playfully explore & free your heart!

DO join us if you possibly can! And if you can’t calendarize for this year, make it part of next summer’s sizzling plan!

Flowing Freedom!

So! Definitely yessing the blessings of these colorful, co-creation days! The more I say yes, the more I am blessed and therein lies the heart of freedom! Sometimes I say yes to keeping quiet until I am ready to speak; allowing Spirit to help me assimilate what is and what is mine to do in the midst of it. The pervasive political news remains in high drama mode with much of it still reeking of injustice. I cannot be on the frontlines of those standing up against bullying though I certainly, gratefully bless those that are. Every day it seems, there is yet another breaking story that if I let it, can break my heart. The recent speech of Trump to the Boy Scouts horrified me yet what is worse is the cheers and applause some of his bullying comments were met with. No matter what side of the red, white, and blue each of us resides on, my continued prayer is that we teach our children to be better than we and our ancestors have been in living the fairness and truth found in our nation’s founding principle of “Freedom and justice for all.” Unfortunately, we still have a long way to go. Yet, each of us wakes free to decide how we want to live and give the gift of liberty! For me, I am staying centered on my path of creativity and divinity. I have some really BIG news in my little corner of life as I am in the middle of taking a giant leap of faith! And! I am going to share it here next month 🙂 ~!! What I will share for now is the 3 guiding principles that have freed me up to face my fears and go forward with fortitude and faith! Perhaps they can help you too!
1. Divinely Aligned! Repeated visions and whisperings are from my holy, high self, angel team, divine guidance. If it keeps returning, it is mine to do!
2. Boundaries! In the wake of caring for aging and body failing elders, I choose to balance what I do for others and embrace this time of my life where I do have health and energy to co-create what I feel is mine to do.
3. Divine Disciple! I am choosing to use discipline and commitment as partners in freedom! As I master more of myself in the wake of inevitable doubts and fears, I am better able to stand fully in the power of my heart, taking right action for that that I am called to do.

As I employ this simple yet complex trilogy, I am free to be more fully me! I look forward to sharing the progress of the aforementioned leap of faith in a co-creation manifestation celebration next month! Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing with me this month, this mindful moment. Whatever the callings of your heart, may you be forever free to keep co-creating them joyfully! Namaste, Love!

Our Leaping Literacy Library has some jubilant July offerings on our Free Shelf incase you missed them ~ August will be here soon!

A Nurturing Nest Needs Freedom!

189.FeedANeed

Namaste Natural Nest Nurturers! Namaste Hungry Birds!

Thanks for sharing a mindful moment here … I am posting in the afterglow of the July 4th celebrations~ Happy Birthday America! For any who like to reach a bit beyond the BBQs into the heart fireworks of true freedom, I salute you! And bow to you. Namaste.

For as much as I celebrate the freedoms of our free nation, and appreciate all the freedom fighters who have gone before us to make it so …. I truly treasure the inner freedoms more ~ forgiveness, allowance, alignment … the freedoms of imagination, inspiration and celebration itself! In that Spirit, here’s a little voice from our New Thought Families spiritual literacy video section of the Leaping Literacy Library:

Home Spirit Celebration: Freedom Of Forgiveness
Passcode: LJFree

Jeremiah’s young voice in that video is narrating and celebrating from one of our daily, multimedia calendar pages, way back when, even as the now 16 year old Jeremiah is winging away from our home nest all summer! Our current calendar and Free Shelf at Leaping Literacy Library feature Letter N which has us nurturing nature and letting nature nurture us! From imagination celebrations to Niagara Falls to nesting to natural beauty Lake Tahoe and an Earth Gym demonstration from SoulPlay Rachel Flower, N is naturally nourishing!FreebiesWith our daily, multimedia New Thought Families Play & Pray Calendar, we are reminded to notice newness and reverently kneel with nature negating the negativity of life which seems to be working overtime these days! 188.KneelNatureIn this celebration of freedom and life ~ especially in the face of what can feel so oppressive ~ we are reminded to rise up like fireworks in the sky, rising from the inside out, naming and claiming the truth of the splendor of who we truly be!

194.NegateNegativityNegate Negativity: Denials And Affirmations
In New Thought, the use of denial and affirmation can be powerful when focused on the inner truths of freedom. To deny is not to insist that something doesn’t exist, rather, it is to focus on the positive affirmation of the highest and best you while you disallow the outcome or impact in your life of the negativity you negate or deny. In this way, forgiveness is a denial. You are denying anger or resentment to eat away at your peace and joy. Whatever thoughts and emotions we experience ~ especially repeatedly ~ we are using them to shape our outer reality. When we focus on what we truly desire from the inner truth of who we be, we deny the power of negativity to bring us down as we affirm the holy presence that is always present in divine order. For a (more!) clear explanation of Denials and Affirmations, see this post from Finding Unity. And so it goes that we mindfully measure meaning of what we’re nourishing  … For more about New Thought … our webpage is here. And! The Association For Global New Thought is hosting a weekly webinar that begins this Monday, July 11. Check it out and sign up here ~ it’s free!Webinar Banner

And! Yes, there’s more … Stephen Dinan, founder and CEO of The Shift Network is launching a new book that engaged my heart so fast, I did the Amazon 1 click! Yes I am excited to read “Sacred America, Sacred World” available with launch bonuses today and tomorrow here! I am hoping this book lays out spiritual wisdom for nurturing our national nest. Here is author Stephen Dinan with the book trailer:

Sacredness in politics?! Sign me up! You’ll find this timely and oh so needed book here, thank you Stephen!

And as we nurture our nest with the best of us, so shall freedom rain and reign … with a true liberty and justice for all. Of course it’s a tall order but there is only infinity in divinity and I see, know, and affirm divine order ~ always! This ~ denial ~ and affirmation really help me align and realign with peace, joy, and freedom.

FREEDOM! Our Feathers Of Freedom Family Camp is coming! You can still join us for sacred Sierra time … Sacred You, Sacred Family! Our family nests are indeed naturally nurtured with time away to pray and play, connect and reflect. Ask your inner wise one; our camp may just feed a need for you and yours … heart and soul!

So, thank you again, for making mindful meaning and feelings of freedom as we nurture our nests with our highest and best. Namaste, Love!

This also comes with a prayer for all those in Belgium who suffered the latest, large scale terrorist attack from Isis this week ~ the insanity of humanity that can indeed, try our faith. As sad and unsettling as it is, I remain in humanitarian solidarity with the goodness and light that will prevail.  May we all continue to send heart thoughts out to our global family.HeartThoughtsOn the home front, I am still physically and mentally recovering from our Disney trip last week ~ and the cold that invaded my tired body upon arrival home. I am still processing how, in the happiest place on earth, there could be so much discontent. Here’s a shot from a parade that had me grinning ear to ear (Chesire Cat style!) the whole time. Check the crowd for smiles  … ~!

Dis

I was a happy fairy flitting around Disney after being band mom ~ the kids did great in their workshop and performance and then they scattered throughout the park. I was left, that 1st day, for an incredible 8 hours by myself. In a sea of people, I didn’t see 1 familiar face yet I smiled and sparkled with many. I had so much fun! I was free. Free to be happy. Free to keep choosing happiness. Free to experience my beloved Small World:SmWorld1
SmWorldCome on! Take the cruise in your imagination right now! Or maybe your prefer to twirl in a teacup? There’s one waiting for you! Whee! Always free to be!
DisT

The 2nd and full day in the park , I hung with a buddy named Faith, who tortured me with riding Indiana Jones (I don’t do roller coasters!) and I tortured her with Small World (seriously, what’s not to love?! I went  four times!) and we found ways to be in free flowing choice, cooperation and communication throughout the day. Faith was one of our students who is recovering from injuries so getting through the park was extra challenging for her. I think we made a good team and we both had a good time. It was a warm 86 degrees and that, along with long lines made for what seemed like an inordinate amount of grumpy faces all around. I did my part to remind people to smile and enjoy the ‘happiest place on earth’ though in the end, everyone always has that freedom of choice. The experience has made me deeply ponder the human propensity to suffer ~ even when we’re greatly blessed! Just what makes it so counterintuitive to fly free?!
84.FlyFree

On day 4 of our little spring break getaway, we spent a few hours at the beach before the loooooooooooooong bus ride home. I took a glorious beach walk, picked up some (art!~) seashells and some trash. I find the calling irresistible … there is that freedom to serve everywhere we go …
BeachWalkIn getting back home, I was piled up with the ‘homework’ of 2 homes (ours and my father’s) + the physical cold and the depressive darkness that sometimes descends upon me after vacations and times of visioning ~ which this trip was big on. It can be overwhelming for me to facilitate what is after seeing so much of what can be. In this Holy Week, I am reminded of the lessons of Jesus … as he goes from celebratory palm fronds through betrayal, his Garden of Gethsemane anguish and the horrible crucifixion and suffering endured before his ultimate Spirit Rising of Easter. I look around my personal circumstances and that of our world … the unspeakable Presidential primary voting in this country and all the violence and unrest in so many places worldwide. So much suffering and unfairness that seems to prevail and yet … I have faith in the light. I have faith that always and in all ways the light will triumph to free each of us and all of us from the darkness of our own imprisonment. And! We know that darkness is required for germination. So it is with faith that we allow our seeds to freely germinate in the darkness and grow with grace into the light. And we choose. We choose to know that humanity can overcome all darkness to grow on in grace filled light and Love. No matter what.
85.FaithGrows

So in that Spirit … of allowance and acceptance of how humanity grows and how freedom rings, I will speak to my own horrified amazement that so many Americans are voting for Trump in our primary elections; a man who uses his freedom of speech to bully others and perpetuate racism and anti-American values of building a wall vs. continuing to embrace immigrants. Yet in this as in so many other instances, I  look to the children to uphold the light of Love for the hope of humanity. With some reservation, I offer you this conversation:

FreebiesAs for our little corner of Leaping Literacy, there’s a few more days for featured F on the Free Shelf; we start the cross over onto G on Friday ~ Good Friday to be exact! Good Friday. Whether or not you observe the Christian observance of Christ’s crucifixion this Friday, may we all pause to bring the light of forgiveness, faith, fortitude, and freedom to the family of humanity … especially to those who perpetuate the crucifying insanity. We can and we will continue to grow a garden of goodness through the faith filled freedom of grace. It does indeed live in each of us.86.GatherGoodness And so it is. Namaste, Love!

Faith Filled Footsteps

FaithTrust copyNamaste Fellow Faithful, Fun Filled Friends!

Thank you for being here for this week’s trust walk celebration of faith and the fearless letter F! Our daily Play & Pray Calendar is freely flowing faith this week and next. In our Creative Spirit Families alphabetic expressions, F has found us still and forever catching up yet fully tethered in faith trusting forward motion! For your part, I hope this finds you floating free as a feather …  at least in this mindful, full breath moment … 75.FeatherFloatFor my part, I spent the day on a bus with the (Jeremiah’s) high school band. In a hotel tonight, they’ll play at Disneyland tomorrow. I, the band mom, am here in service to many, sometimes frayed and frazzled, callings of my heart. In the freedom and fun loving part of things, I am here in service to being a mom to many, at least in tiny part, and I am here for the Spirit of fun and frolic. Feathers, stickers, wings, glitter … I’ve got it all … following the faith filled footpath of … fairy … ME!
78.FunFrolicPlayful me is here to experience and facilitate fun for others ~ in twinkling, trusting fairy style! Tired me is wondering what was I thinking?! Business me (yes, there is one!) is forlorn at the fallow efforts actually applied thus far for what was mapped out for Membership March. Yes, my money making efforts seem to (yet again!) be going by the wayside. And! In the midst of all of it, I sit here now tethered in faith and trusting divine order. The moments and days leading up to this getaway have been full to the brim with family service infused with ongoing fortitude and forgiveness for the work play of Leaping Literacy Library and gathering as Creative Spirit Families. This last week, a plan with beautiful partnership came together for our first local PlayShop of 2016 + some of our beautiful families are utilizing March’s early bird sign up for Feathers of Freedom Camp. YES!
Feathers16B Feathers16AFaith … Freedom … And Feathers!
Last year, after 10 years, I changed the name of our fun filled family camp … from Feathers Of Faith to Feathers of Freedom … for a few reasons. Faith can sometimes be a misleading word. I view faith as an unshakable though sometimes fragile substance within that gives Spirit substance to our lives. Though many find faith through religion, faith is far more than a framework based on beliefs. It is an essence of our souls. Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation. ~ St. Thomas Aquinas

FOFIn the case of our family camp, I got the feeling far too many times that the word faith brought a question of religion. Our camp (and other work) holds space for any and all religious tolerance, education & inspiration. Yet we are all about Spirit of the heart, Love expressed in so many ways … hence, the freedom! Our camp itself has a plethora of activities to choose from so denotes the freedom to choose the experiences most fitting for each family. We come together to be creative community, and to embrace the holy within each of us and all of us in playful, appreciative, celebratory ways. The sacred Sierras that nest us for the weekend are soul nurturing sustenance. The whole of it makes room for feeling more freedom. MMM good! My favorite fun and frolic! Do join us if you’re called!

And in a few hours … I’ll be in Disneyland for a different backdrop of family fun. Some years back, while in Disneyworld, I had a huge vision of Creative Spirit Families … theme park style! ~ And so in divine order faith and trust, I am open to whatever fun, frolic, and forward motion awaits me and our merry band tomorrow!
77.FaithfulFriendBefore I publish this and surrender to sleep so I can be fun fairy me tomorrow, I wish to briefly speak to 2 of our F fostered spiritual literacy lessons … family & friends … and faith filled manifestation. Ooh kinda big stuff for a few words … so it will be up to your meditative mind and faith filled heart to draw what you may need here to carry forward fostering with fortitude! And feel free to share your insights here with me and others too!
Family & Friends!
The above picture is a much younger Jeremiah who I admit in hushed tones that I still miss. In being here now for my 16 year old ~ as well as my 90 year old dad ~ faith is the knowing that the changing landscape of our relationships is strongly tethered in divine order unfolding. The circle of life that holds and loves us can be trusted and is worthy of our faith. As family members and friends change, or even come and go, having faith in our hearts gives us the freedom to keep showing up for each other. As with most of life, I find that if I stay stuck in what is “supposed to or should be”, I will completely miss the blessing of what is. We are always free to feel Love or fear. And whatever doesn’t feel good most likely is (deep) rooted in fear.
79.FaceFearsFear can definitely be a very tricky bedfellow. Lurking in each of us, it often takes awareness to Love it into safety, surrender … and divine order co-creation.
Ask In Faith
The few words I will give this vast subject will mostly be sung below in a vintage music video of “Ask In Faith”. The actual recorded version sample with lyrics is here on the Trust What You Hear CD page. So as the video attends to, the basic formula for Law Of Attraction is found in a bible verse from Mark that reads, “Whatever you ask for in faith, believe you have received it and it will be yours.” For my part, I continue to (re)align all the callings of my heart with this faith filled belief. And you? Be with the song and see what comes up! Ask In Faith is also found on our current Free Shelf with a total of 5 fab songs, Fay’s Gray Bay Laurie StorEBook and Freedom Tales with internationally renowned storyteller Luisah Teish. FreebiesThank you for sharing a mindful, faith filled moment here my friend. I pray that whatever you are asking for in faith, you are indeed able to not only conceive but believe and achieve it! For in this full circle of co-creation, we are truly FREE! Namaste, Love!

Free To Stand Still

A favorite place to pause on the Waterfall Walk
A favorite place to pause on the Waterfall Walk

Namaste beings of beauty, serenity and freedom!

In the whirlwind of To Do’s, I am feeling some measure of Ta Da as I stop to deep breath stand still … for a fleeting moment!

What is on your To Do & Ta Da Lists this week?! What makes you stand still? Can you be still in the midst of the journey? Well, for a mindful, meditative moment anyway.

For our part, it’s Feathers Of Freedom Family Camp time! The car is (over)packed; I am playing a library show on the way (sorta on the way!) and then preparing the camp with feathers and footsteps of freedom for all the families coming this Friday and throughout the weekend … This Blue Moon Friday! Yes July’s 2nd full moon is coming up to light our way on the mountain!

In the free fall of a feather ... softly standing still ... at least for this breath!
In the free fall of a feather … softly standing still … at least for this breath!

The New Thought Families daily Play & Pray Calendar’s fortitude filled July footsteps are walking right into the Awesome arms of August Beauty & Yes Expressed ~ stop by for a playful place to stand still ~ any day! And the Free Shelf has been restocked …
FreebiesI promise to take you on a mini-camp experience next week in the after glow of Freedom Of Feathers. I also heartily invite you to co-create the freedom of standing still in sacred space whatever mindful moment you can make. I know ~ and am living it ~ that we in this culture tend to value productivity & movement over sitting or standing still … yet let’s all try stillness more often this week! And now … we’re goin’ camping!

Deep Sacred Breath Of Yes

DSCN1379

Namaste holy wondrous hearts & harmonious wanderers! Thank you for spending this mindful moment with me; let’s breathe in mountain beauty & sweet surrendered stillness … mmmm. Deep sacred breath of yes …
DSCN1357
In last week’s check in, I was on the way up the mountain with my sisters and my dad to celebrate his 90th birthday. It was a good trip and as one of my blessed caregivers for dad so beautifully stated, “It will be a soft pillow in your memories.”
DSCN1311
It had been awhile since I had spent extended family time and I was tested a time or two. While I didn’t like the reactive feelings that came up, I stayed as the observer and consciously did not engage in ‘counter attacks’. All in all, I found it a good barometer of growth. And! I definitely had help; I re-centered in prayer in the gorgeous St. Mary’s church where the birthday boy ~ 90 year old dad ~ also glimpsed the divine … at least for a moment.

DSCN1277

It is amazing what a stunning stained glass filled house of prayer and beauty can do for the soul!DSCN1289

As any parent or caregiver in any capacity knows, we all need time to rejuvenate and fill our souls. Yesterday I went back up the mountain and did a summer library show in a small library with some lovely peeps. Then I took mountain time for me and it was glorious!

In my second trip up the mountain this week, I took some time to rejuvenate lakeside ... aahh!
In my second trip up the mountain this week, I took some time to rejuvenate lakeside … aahh!

Today was a busy day of caretaking for my dad and working on my many art projects of the moment. I signed up to take some art to our county fair this weekend … something I have wanted to do for several years. I was so excited and delighted when I signed up … to bring … 14 things. I know, really? 1, 2, 3, 4 would have been plenty?! I will let you know next week ~ with pictures! ~ how many I actually finish by the Saturday deadline! I have been really looking at my tendencies to overcommit, not finish, feel bad … well I feel pretty compassionate these days actually because I am simply doing the (un)worthiness dance … it’s a deep subject but suffice it to say I am ever embracing me, loving me, ever deeper especially when I ‘fall short’. I LOVE co-creation and the infinite possibilities that we can co-create. I was SO excited and delighted for each of the 14 items I envisioned making for the fair … and so I continue to delight in as much of it as I can … and complete what I can. There is plenty of web work still on the proverbial list as well as a fabulous, fun filled Feathers Camp to facilitate this month and the ongoing caretaking of my dad and all else … SO?! BREATHE …. DEEP … LOVE … DEEPER!

The question Oriah Mountain Dreamer asks on the cover of her book, The Dance, came to her in a dream and in the voice of her wise grandmother.

I am reading Oriah Mountain Dreamer’s book, The Dance, with a good friend(s) in an online book discussion. The question on the cover is one I am visiting daily, “What if the question is not why am I so infrequently the person I really want to be, but why do I so infrequently want to be the person I really am?! In deeply loving me, I get to keep practicing acceptance and celebration of who I really am, even and especially when I fall short to prove again how I am not enough. What a wearisome game! In the eyes of the sacred heart, I am, we are, such incredibly beautiful creations. Enough? My goodness, really?! We are loved beyond measure, much the same way we unconditionally love our children or pets.

My 3+ weeks without Jeremiah ends tomorrow night when he flies home from his dad’s. It has been a time of intense trust for me. There is much to say on the subject but we will have to visit the mother dance another mindful moment.

Our daily Play & Pray Calendar at New Thought Families continues to celebrate holy ground and fortitude filled feet with playful reminders … walk, dance, stand with us there! And the Leaping Literacy Online Library Free Shelf is freshly stocked for the week. EnJOY!:

Our Feathers Of Freedom Camp is shaping up to be a sacred sharing sanctuary of fun, family frolic!

Holy Ground

SilverLakeNamaste Wild Hearts Blooming in whatever Holy Ground you are Grooming or simply Perusing!

I send you this radiant wildflower energy from Silver Lake in the sacred Sierras where our Feathers Of Freedom Camp is set for July 31st ~ August 3rd. At the base of Thunder Mountain, I always feel the holy energy of energized yesness when there. I will be passing through this holy ground in a few hours with my sisters as we take my dad up the mountain in celebration of his 90th birthday tomorrow. It has been a long year of caretaking my dad as he suffers the indignities of an aging, failing body. Hopefully his Spirit will be renewed and his body will allow this trip to his beloved mountains and Virginia City.

The many aspects of family caretaking and clean ups continue as I carve out time for my other callings of creativity and business. I squeaked into a very cool contest from Wells Fargo that would really help Creative Spirit Families with working capital and the oh so needed business mentoring! For you good hearted souls who believe in our cause, please vote for our project between now and July 19, 2015 ~ easy click ~ you can vote once per day ~ hooray! Creative Spirit Families on Wells Fargo Works

I just restocked the Free Shelf … a tad early in lieu of the 90th celebration … we are SINGING this week ~ come on & sing along!FreebiesWe continue to chip away at the navigation implementation on all the sites. The summer interns are not working as much as I had thought but there is a divine order to all of it. Our summer camp is right around the corner and these lovely interns will be an integral part of the fun and frolic! I visited the camp this week and felt inspired to issue a kind of last minute video invitation … the wind was moving through it for more of the holy gurgle but I will share it anyway … I want you to know you are still invited to come play!
https://vimeo.com/132873414

I have always believed and continue to deepen in the knowing that we are always walking sacred ground. When we bring a mindful, grateful awareness of where our feet are, we align ever more with this truth. Wherever your feet are this moment, this day, may you know the infinite blessing of the sacred ground you are on. If you want some help in remembering or celebrating your path, our New Thought Families Play & Pray July Calendar has our feet forging fearless pathways. Happy trails of blessed yesness to you and yours. Namaste, Love!
