Wonder

Beautiful, amazing, hard to believe, astonishing, surprising, awesomely mysterious…all words full of wonder.

The magic and beauty of the world never ceases to fill me with wonder.  I wonder at the intricate, complex and functionality of the human body and the universe around me.

“Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.”

~Saint Augustine

“He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder.”

~M.C. Escher

This week I invite you to experience the wonder of the world; small and precious, colossal and mysterious.

Summer Solstice 2016

Today marks the Summer Solstice, accompanied by a full Moon in Sagittarius.  The Sun and the Moon, the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine join together.

This potent combo of light and dark offer us opportunity to create harmony and balance.  The action, intention and motivation of the masculine,  meet the reflection, fertility and renewal of the feminine;  allowing us to release old patterns.

Supported by this Divine influence, this week I invite you through meditation and ritual to tune into your authentic self.  Bring forth your pure potential.

Resilience

Resilience is considered  the ability to recover from or adjust to life change or misfortune.

Difficulties, changes and challenges are a part of life that we all will confront at one time or another.  Turbulent,  muddy rapids of change threaten to sweep away our spirit like rushing flood waters sweep away homes.

I am so impressed by the living examples of resilience that surround me.  A dear friend who suffers from a chronic medical condition, but chooses to live the best life possible.

A man in his early seventies who has suffered three major financial setbacks in his life, is starting over again.  His determination and attitude are inspiring.  His success a testimony of resilience.

“Resilience isn’t a single skill.  It is a variety of skills and coping mechanisms.  To bounce back from bumps in the road as well as failures, you should focus on emphasizing the positive.”

~Jean Chatzky

I invite you this week to honor your spirit of resilience.

Hope

Just as we all dream, we all hope.  Hoping is to ‘desire with expectation and fulfillment’ according to my trusted Merriam-Webster.  Hope is reliance and trust; hope is the promise of a better future.

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all the world’s problems at once but don’t underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”

~Michelle Obama

“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world:  someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.”

~Tom Bodett

I invite you to focus on the hope for a better future.
