Have you ever thought of someone, and coincidentally that person contacts you?
These moments of connectivity through intuition become more pronounced as we become heart-centered. We are then able to tune in, tune up, and listen to our own Inner Voices and Inspiration. Quite simply, as we awaken we will see evidence of love, magnified! One Love is then free to radiate into the world.
Consciously or haphazardly, we are constructing our unique communication towers, those that amplify signals towards our accord.
Unity lies not only in the acceptance of those that align with us, but in understanding ourselves and others in the midst of our contrasts.
Healthy relationships and communities strengthen the self, The Self, and the other.
Stay strong and awake, sojourners! Don’t fall asleep.
Miraculously and Lovingly Yours, Tonya
